Shafter Battalion of 2nd Infan
try Has One Day of Real
The Fort Shafter battalion of the
Second Infantry has taken its cue
from" big league ball clubs, by clos
ing "at home" with a big . field day
and then going on 'the road" for a
swing around the. circuit. : Yesterday
the four companies competed in the
regular quarterly field day, and bright
and early this morning they hit the
grit for a battalion practice march
arou&d the island.
This "will - be ;more like a yacation
trip"than a hard hike, for the itin
erary calls for nine days on the road,
which will divide the distance up in
to comparatively ' short marches, and
give the men a chance to amuse
themselves in camp during the after
er ball game between the 'companies.
