responsibilities and Jealous of Its

. A CADET
Camp Perry, Aug. 28
Well It's all over, and the Western
Department Rifle Team has won the
National, Team Match!
We defeated Camp Custer, our
nearest rival by 39 points, and also
defeated Anapolis, and the military
Academy West Point.
This gives us a big silver cup, to be
kept bythe Western Department and
each member of the team gets a dandy
We defeated every national guard
R. O. T. C. and all but seven .civilian
teams. We defeated the closest
national guard by 37 points, which isn't
bad. for the national guard Isn't com
posed of Koreans and Hawailans like
it is at home.
Winning this match has taken a
great load off our minds for the West
ern Dept. won last year and we had
to keep the trophy. By the way you
had better have a wheel-barrow at
the wharf to carry away our medals!
Now that the good news is over I
will start on the bad. Sometime be
tween Monday and Wednesday, some
body came into our tent, and with a
master-key opened up all our trunka
and took $45.00 from the tent. $20 of
which was mine! You have always
cautioned me against carrying my
money about with me, but to keep it
locked up instead, I did that, but this
time it didn't work. I have exactly
$3.00, which I won in this last match,
for the major said he would give $3.00
to the man that would win third place
in the shooting. If It won't last I can
borrow from Moir till I get home.
The Presidio, Cal.
We had a fine trip across the' con
tinent coming home by the Southern
Pacific route' which I like much better
than the Santa Fe. We came through
Illinois, Iowa, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada
and California. We crossed the great
Salt Lake in Utah, which is quite won
derful. It took the train an hour and
a half to cross the Lake on the bridge
which cost the S. P. people seven
million dollars to build.
We stopped half an hour at Truckoe
which papa will remember because
we passed through the town when we
went to Lake Tahoe. The impression
we got of it then was that every other
door was a saloon, but it is quite dif
ferent now, quite a sober, prosperous
We met a travelling lecturer on the
train, a man by the name of Hall who
did nothing but talk. We were wearing
the medals which we had won at
Perry, and he talked so much that we
thought we would fill him up. This
is how the conversation ran: "Going
home Boys?" "Yes."
"Just back from the front I sup
pose?" "Oh, of course!"
"Those are some nice medals that
you have there!" what is it? Croix de
"No. Distinguished cross of Eng
land!" "Wounded were you?"
"Yes, gassed at Bellecourt Woods."
"Well, well, thats interesting!"
He went away with quite a profound
respect for us, and we -were glad to
get rid of him.
