Fort Crook Soldier's
Grope in Hell-Hole
Filled With Hun Gas
Reality is Combined With Intensive Training to Fit Troops
in Omaha for Active Service in Trenches;
Await Orders to Go Overseas.
' Creeping through the winding passages of a dark tunnel,
rank with the heavy odor of poisonous gas, soldiers at Fort
Crook are facing the mosj; intensive training in dangerous war
lare since they enlisted in United States servite.
This tunnel of gloom and treacherous smell has just been
completed under the direction of skilled and battle-trained
army officers that the men may actually face the realities of
enemy gas attacks.
The "hell-hole," as the tunnel is
described, is one of the latest in
novations at American training
camps. The experiences of the
men in invading the tunnel quickens
their intuition, puts them on guard
for the unexpected and trains them
in, prompt avoidance of lurking
Combatting Gas Attacks. y
; The horrible gas attacks of the
enemy will not phase the soldiers
from Fort Crook. They can adjust
their masks in six seconds.
Even the knowledge that the air
about them is filled with poison will
not frighten them, for by the time
jthey go overseas that will be a
, familiar experience with them,
Gas is injected into the -ew tun
nel at the foot and the boys adjust
their masks and walk safely through
it. They will know what to do when
the Huns try to make a "hell hole"
out of their sector of the line "over
there." They will adjust their masks
and continue their attack upon the
enemy just as they,were taught to do
in peaceful Omaha.
Pep, push and pride mark the
activities at the army post at Fort
Crook.- ..The mighty work of war
and the miracle of changingan
awkward rookie into an efficient sol
dier goes on unceasingly. .
Training is Thorough.
The men are trained to win the
war. Outwitting the Hnn, withstand
ing a gas attack, using a bayonet,
throwing hand grenades and firing
machine guns at an enemy miles
away are a few of the things the sol
diers are taught to do.
They grow familiar with the awful
things of war and think clearly and
act quickly under conditions that
would craze an untrained man.
.. It givei one a thrill of pride to
see the men run forward carrying
parts of heavy machine guns. There
is not an instant's hesitation, not
one misdirected movement. At an
order they drop to the ground,
mount the guns and fire; all in less
time than it takes for a German to
drink a stein of beer.
Periscope Range-Finders
The guns will hit the target even
though the enemy is miles away
for the periscope-like machine seen
in the picture"- is a Grange finder."
The officers looking into the lens
can see more than a mile away. A
system of prisms reflects the object
and computes the distance.
The roar of cannons and the noise
of bursting shells will not hinder
messages which will be signaled by
the red and white flags. Only one
flag is used in the international code.
All real soldiers can "wig-wag."
Often as -ships pass in mid-ocean, a
Yankee soldier wig-wags 9. greeting
to a Jap sailor on a passing boat.
"Over there" where the soldiers
who are holding the line speak so
many different languages "wig-wagging"
is a common bond between the
men who have no other means of
'communication with their allies. In
the semaphore method two flags are
used and the words are spelled by
, Enemy Dummies Used.1
The spirited soldier lads will do
more than withstand the assaults of
the enemy. They will charge the
German lines; they are lea'rning'how
to do it in a miniature battlefield of
trenches and barbed-wire which they
have made at Fort Crook. Their
battlefield is even equipped with
German enemy and the soldiers are
taught how to "make a bayonet
charge and "run them through."
These hated German soldiery at
the Fort already have been pierced
The Rook at Ft. Crook
many times and likely will suffer
many more bayonet jabs, for they
are only stuffed dummies that help
the boys in learning how to attack.
The soldiers in the picture who
have just "wound up" and made a
record throw are base ball pitchers
but they aren't throwing spit-balls
this time. They hold American gre
nades, lemon-shaped balls of iron,
harmless-looking, heavy little balls
filled with' explosives whose killing
capacity will cause long casuality
lists for the enemy.
Grenades Timed to Explode.
The grenades are timed and ex
plode just five seconds after they
are thrown. They are dangerous
death-dealers and skill is needed in
throwing them. Te soldier drops to
the ground as soon as the grenade
is thrown so thatt he will not be
a victim of the bursting iron. The
grenades burst into 42 pieces. They
can be thrown a maximum distance
of SO yards and have a killing range
of 75 yards.
I The soldiers have often fested the
little "death balls" and have been
awed at their power. One was
placed under a heavy oak door which
was covered on one side with zinc.
The grenade gave a whizz like the
snap of a whip and exploded. The
door was torn into toothpicks.
Work and Play.
The work is not all serious. The
husky soldiers have their play time
and then they shout and augh like
children. The picture shows them
playing "churn." The boyish sol
dier in the center is "it" and the
others are whirling him and tossing
him around. The eager hands are
keeping tne soldier in the air for the
one who lets him fall will be "it"
next and will have to take his turn
at a "churning."
Thegames help train the men to
be quick and alert and; with the more
serious training, are making the Fort
Crook soldiers quick and strong and
"fit to do their bit."
The soldiers expect overseas orders

IN discussing; Nuxated Iron at a dinner in a fashionable hotel in New York,
a well-known man of affairs said that the fact that over three million peo
ple annually were endorsing: It by their use of it, according to conservative1
estimates, was to him the strongest possible argument that could be advanced as
to its therapeutic efficacy. No newspaper or magazine in the world has a vast
army of three .million purchasers. It represents more than half the total num
ber of votes usually cast for successful candidates for President. ;Such an army
of trained American Soldiers in France today could, in
our opinion, immediately sweep the combined armies of
the Central Empires baek across the Rhine and win a
complete victory in less than three months, dictate the
terms of peace to Germany in Berlin. Nuxnted Iron is
such a valuable product to give the "stay-there" strength,
power end endurance so much demanded by soldiers in the
army that General Gibson says thaC Judging from the
results in his own case, he feels that every soldier who
g.oes to the front should take Nuxated Iron, and that it
has brought back to him in good measure that old buoy
ancy and, energy that filled his veins in 1847 when ha
made his triumphant entry with General Winfield Scott
into the City of Mexico.
