THE WASHINGTON IDLES,
Secretary of War Satisfies Old
Craving to Take Command
of Body of Horsemen.
--Troop left front into line!" shouted
Secretary of War Stimson to Troop A
of the Fifteenth Cavalry at Fort Myer,
and the troopers .wheeled into troop
front just as if a regular West Point
graduated, commissioned officer were
shouting at them.
Secretary Stimson, in drilling a troop,
gratified what he described as "a secret
ambition of-six years."
The-Secretary of War in theory, could
take command of an entire brigade, di
vision or army and issue orders If he
knew them. However, the drill at Fort
Myer is probably the first on record
where a Secretary of War put soldiers
through actual evolutions.
Secretary Stimson used to be a mem
ber of the fashionable Squadron A, of
New Tork, and lo the back of his 'head
cavalry tactics were a rather vague
memory. Before golnr to Fort Myer he
brushed up a little and with excellent
result, according to the cavalry officers
who looked on and who nursed a sinful
hope that' Mr. Stimson would get the
troop inextricably "balled up."
