If you were an army officer in the

fore It's small wonder that some score
or more officers of the Cavalry and
Field Artillery at Schofield Barracks
are jarred to their very teeth because
he paternal government wants to
make howling CQssocks of them.
The recent War Department order
for what is known as the "Cossack
ride, Is responsible for having "start
ed something," to use the vernacular.
It provides that every commander of
mounted troops shall lead his offi
cers up hill and down dale, over fences
and ditches, covering three miles of
this sort of country in not more than
11 minutes, this merry little joy ride
to take place annually, .including the

"for why?" will probably arrive about
the same time that they are discharg

not riding their own mounts will be
duly docketed In the dub class.
