WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T., SATURDAY. APRIL II, 1 908
Sergeant Barry Makes Favor
By rrqucst of lft Lieufenant
.Robert II. Dinegar, Wailuku, Maui,
a general order issued from the Ad
jutant General's ollie in Honolulu,
T. II. 1st Infantry of Hawaii.
Sergeant 13. S. Barry was ordered.
to report to Lieut. Dinegar for duty
for the, purpose of drilling the Hos
pital Corps Detachment at that
post. Ho left on the "Claudine"
and reported for duty on Saturday
morning, April 4th, at Wailuku.
The Detachment was formed and
on order from the Commanding
Ollieer of the Detachment, went in
to camp at once. A move was
ttiade from Wailuku after" prelimi
nary drilling, to a sheltered spot at
the foot of the lao Mountains, where
Camp "Barry" was established.
The Detachment remained in
camp from Sunday until Tuesday
noon, going through and perform
ing'all of the duties pertaining to
the medical department. Sergeant
Barry reports most favorably on the
work done. i
The attendance was lOOo and
the work done was excellent, es
pecially considering that all were
recruits. The manoeuvres perform
ed included detachment' formation,
tent pitching, litter drill, first aid
work on the field, and cooking (un
der the-superintendence of 'Cook
Hart). The calls were sounded by
the Bugler of the detachment; and
Jackie Bal performed his duties as
drummer-boy for the detachment.
As to proficiency, the time made
in pitching tents on the third drill
.was eleven minutes. This in itself
certifies as to the class of men in
the detachment, and it will not be
necessary in case of a riot on this
Island for the Surgeon-General
Charles B. Cooper, to bring any
other aid from Honolulu, as the de
tachment here is both competent
ahd reliable to perform all duties
pertaining to The medical depart
ment on the firing line.
As to the ability of the Command
ing Ollieer of the detachment, his
services as surgeon of the 9th Regi
ment, -N. G. S. N. Y., have emi
nently fitted him for the position
lie now holds as Commander of this
detachment. He is full of enthu
siasm and considers neither time
nor money wasted in making his de
taphnicnt equal to that of the U. S.
Captain Bal, in command of Com
pany I, at very short notice, fur

from his Company for Guard Duty,

stated that an overwhelming ma
