be in ue and, in all, close to 250,000
civilian are expected to get a taste
of army life -during the luinmer
month. Last year .about 10,000
passed through the civilian training
campt and 104,000 through the Na-
Regulars to Take Part
In round figures the encampment
training tchedule, which awaits only
the action of congress in making
funds available to act it going in mid-
June, provides for 15-day training
periods for lUU.lHM) National guards
men, 30,000 reserve officers and
specialists, and longer periods for
10,000 student members of the re
nerve officers training corn, and 27.
000 civilians in the civilian military
training camps. The full strength
of the regular army will be thrown
into the training work, together with
the full eauiDtnent of the troops.
In the hands of corps area com'
manders are the detailed charts show
ing just when each camp is open and
the course of instruction. National
guard and organized reserve units
are assigned by number to each
army or National guard post available'
in each state and every branch oi
modern military science will be
Call Reserve Officers.
In effect a skeleton mobilization
of a war-time army lasting over the
period of from mid-June to Septem-
ber is planned. It will be a cross
section, widely scattered over the
nation, of the war army of 2,000,000
men which framers of the present
national defense act designed to
make available for defense in a mat
ter of weeks instead of months,
should the need ever arise.
To aid regular officers, some 900
reserve officers will be called as in
structors in .the civilian military
training ' camps, ' their work being
in addition to their own 15-day train
ing with .; the regular troops. Most
of these will be men with overseas
experience to back them if the de
partment! expectations are realized
as to the number who will volunteer
, Based on Pershing's Plan.
Underlying all the work is care
fully prepared training doctrine for
the entire army worked out under
General Pershing's supervision, as
the basis on which alt military train
ing under the government is to rest
Whatever individual camp command
ers do in laying out each day's pro
gram will be in accordance with this
doctrine, in order to make sure of
co-ordinated effort and the fighting
efficiency of the whole force should
it ever be called together.
The recent declaration of the War
department that the man with the
rifle and bayonet was still the basic
unit of war was a part of this doc
trine, as was the decision that Amer
ican troops should devote only a
fourth of their time to training for
defensive operations and the remain
ing to preparing for attack. That
spirit, it was said at the department,
is to govern all camps this year.

Mr. Swain's directions follow:
Wind the tube with the No. 22
wire, leaving one inch mare-m at
each end; then fasten ends of wire
securely. Nail the round pieces of
wood m the center of the two square
blocks knd fit them on ends of the
tube, glueing them securely. -
the slider may be purchased for
a few cents or it may be made by
cutting a quarter-inch grove. in one
side ot a small block of wood 'and
fastening a 3-inch strip oi brass or
copper over the groove, allowing
two inches to project, over which
should be bent downward at an
angle so as to press on the coil. The
slider should be placed on the rod
and the rod fastened to the top and
in the center of the wooden blocks.
This will allow the. slider - to v be

off; the coil along the path the point
of the slider moves so that it will
make a connection with the wire.

The condenser is made by sep
arating each piece of tinfoil with a
piece of oil or tissue paper. Each
piece of oil or tissue paper must be
little larger than the tinfoil so
that . no two pieces of tinfoil will
touch. However, the top and third
piece should protrude from one side
and the second and fourth should
protrude from the opposite side and
allowed to touch. The condenser is
then placed on the 6x3xJ4 block and
strio of wood . tacked across to
hold it firmly in place. A binding
post - should be mounted on
each . of the f protruding tinfoil
edges and fastened into the wood.
, Connection of the simple apparatus
is as follows:
Aerial lead-in wire, should be at
tached to the binding post on the
side of one of the blocks of the
turning coil. From the same bind
ing post attach a wire that will lead!
to one of the posts of the detector.
From the other post of the detector
connect a wirefjthat vJilUead to the
condenser. Then cdnnect -the sec
ond post of the condenser to the
binding post at the end of the tun
ing coil rod. From the last named
binding post attach, a wire that will
lead to a ground (a water pipe).
Receiving phones, -which may be
purchased from a radip firm, are at
tached to the . same, binding posts
on the condenser as the other wires.
An aerial of bare 'wire should be

Turning to tree pruning, the hor

lowest of these branches should be
