NEW YORK'S PREPAREDNESS
Other section? of the 'country that
have been accusing; the Earn of undue
military arder will have to aduilt that
New York state ot least has the cour
age of its con /ouons. Governor Whlt
man has Juet signed several prepar
edness bills which together make an
impressive body of military legisla
One bill provides for compulsory
physical training for all school pu
pils in the state over eight years old.
Another establishes moderate but
compulsory military training for all
boys botween 16 and 10 except those
engaged in earning a livelihood. A
third gives the governor power to or
der a draft for the reserve militia
If nil able-bodied men between 18 and
45 at any time, to bring the national
guard up to requirements. OtherB
ure designed .to increase the strength
und efficiency of thc naval militia and
tho aatioital guard. Cse t>, them ap
propriate $500,500 for the mobilization
of the guard this summer.
These measures, considered justi
fied by New York's openness to at

effective unit In any scheme of na
ARMY Mt'LE VINDICATED
When General Pershing's punitivo
exp?dition dispensed with the usual
army transport wagons in favor of
motor trucks; the famous army, mule
seemed definitely relegated to obscur
ity, Hut subsequent developments
have restored him .to hpnor. again. .The
trucks have : proved to bo better'for
hauling supplies wherever there is
any sort If practicable road. But where
there are no roads, tho mule is as ser
viceable as ever. And in the rough
mountainous regions where the chase
pus led General Pershing's columns,
the mute has certainly proved his met
tle. ;:?>< ?
The American army horse was very
soon found' tb be rio match for the
Mexican Tinny, His size and strength
were of no avail fev the. work at hand,
and he ate too much. The tough little
Mexican beasts*, living on almost noth
ing, could outdistance the best'horses
in a protracted . chase, penetrating
trails where ?tefylorses could not fol
low. But in the Missouri mule even
the ?, lex i csu pony has met his match!
Tho mule is hardy of muscle and

Many of the Anderson people are
beginning to make arrangements for
their vacations. Since Anderson is
located so near the mountains, many
of the inhabitants find it more con
venient to go there for a few w^eeks
in the summer. Oilier:; desire to go
to the seashore, but the mountain
hotels get tho majority of tho vaca
tionists from this section. Week-end
trips to the mountains are always
very popular, and within a few weeks
hundreds of local people will be tak
ing these. The weather BO far has
been very pleasant, taking into con
sideration the fact that lt is past the
