THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1315.
(Continued from page 1.)
The following estimate of what
the shipment will contain wai
given out at Natianal Guard head
U. S. model Springfield rifles,
30 calibre, 540; bayonets and scab
bards. 540; complete uniforms,
khaki type, includ!ng blouses,
breeches and leggins. 540; cam
paign hats and blue cords. 540;
olive drab skirts, 540; ofive drab
blanket, 540; cartridge belts. 540;
haversacks. 540; haversack slings,
540; canteens, 540. There is also
included in the list a complete
layout of meat cans, knives, forks,
spoons and tin cup9 for 540 men,
540 shelter tents, witn the accom
panying poles and pegs; 540 first-fSan Francisco
aid packets and a quantity of
guard literature and books relat
ing to military tactics.
About 13,400 rounds of am
munition, making 2400 rounds to
each of the six companies, will
comprise the initial shipment of
shells. It is interesting to note in
this connection that the new type
of ammunition now in use by the
United States army and the Na
i tional Guard, when fired from the
' present model rifles, travels at the
rate of 2800 feet per second, or
more than half a mile. All rquip
ment for the Kauai guard com
panies, including the guns, will be
new. There will be 540 pairs of
excellent new marching shoes for
the guardsmen, and blistered .feet
will be a thing unknown when
hiking comes to play a prominent
part in the activities and training
of the various companies.
Brig. Gen. Samuel I. Johnson
has cabled to Washington, D. C,
with a view to securing one more
lieutenant .instructor and three
more setgeant instructors for the
training o f the new national
guardsmen, In case the sergeant
instructors are allowed by the war
department, one will have perma
nent station on Kauai to aid the
officer? in drilling and otherwise
assisting the "rookies" to become
fit si -class guardsmen.
General Johnson will return
from Hawaii within a few days,
and probably will leave t for the
Garden Island at an early day to
inspect the new companies there.
Two hundred additional enlistment
blanks were forwarded to 1st
Lieut. L. D. Timmons, adjutant,
in the last mail.

the visiting parents, "readier"

ley says that if the market can be
opened up, a profitable trade may
be commenced with the nuts one

for homesteaders and others to
grow them in large quantities in
