PLAN BRIGADE MANEUVERS
Washingtonians Have Been at
Camp Wilson for the Past
CAMP WILSON. SAN ANTONIO,
Tax.. Nov. 20. The District militia
man today began thtlr alxth month'a

dered to arm by President Wilson
June 18, Today also marks com
mencement of the Waahlngtontan'a
seventh week at Camp "Wilson. The
program for the weok's military ac
tivities Is not much different from
that of previous weeks excupt for
brigade maneuvers tomorrow and
Friday night when the District regi
ment will be pitted nRalnst a war
strength regiment In mimic warfare.
Most of tho militiamen were given
liberty yesterday and roamed the
aurxoundlng country or took automo
bile or horseback trips some distance
from the camp. Thoy resumed drills
today with vim and enthusiasm.
Scrgt. Maj.r J. Douglas Hood was
assaulted yesterday by Private Theo

Easy to Select Gifts ;
For Militia This Year
Tobacco First on the List of Boys on the Border.
Sweetmeats, Warm Pajamas, and Reading
Matter Come Next.
By Staff Correspondent.
CAMP WILSON, SAN ANTONIO,
Tex., Nov. 20. For once In their lives,
the wives, mothers, and sweethearts
of two or three thousand District
men will not have to worry what to
get thorn for Christmas.
Usually it Is a. choice between a
necktie and a pair of gloves.
II ut this year the boys at cotnp are
making out lists not to bo sent
home, of course but merely In the
way of suggestion for anyone who
wants to make it public.
First and foremost the District
boys at the border want tobacco. It
doesn't matter what kind of tobacco
it Is. Cigars, cigarettes, pipe tobacco,
"eating" tobacco, anything that will
smoke or chew Is welcome.
Second in the list come sweetmeats.
The boys get a great deal of plain
food, and occasionally some delicacies
In their bill of fare, but they are all
ravenous for candy, nuts, sugared
fruits, and such luxuries.
Writing materials are the next
most common demand. Tho boys use
lots of writing paper and many of
them have had to uso wrapping pa
per, the backs of handbills, or such
other materials as were at hand for
Hooks and magaxlnes, old or new,
are among other things tho District
sqldlers would 'be glad to receive in
the Yuletide mail.
Tho personal clrtulatlon system Is
In vogue, and everything that arrives
In the line of reading matter passes
through tho hands of nearly everyone
in camp, so that thora Is no lack of
appreciation when something new
starts Its circuit.
Warm pajamas are also Included In
the lists. Many of the lads are forced
to soep in tneir uniforms to avoid
freezing in the chill northers, and
more than half of them would be
"tickled to death" almost by soma
real fleecy pajama suits.
Although the soldiers' board and
clothing bills are oald by the Gov
ernment, there are a lot, of other
things which a man must haVo to'he
comfortable. Chaplain Smith says
anything fromnome which will break
the monotony of the army bill of fare
and anything that the soldiers would
have to pay money for would be most
acceptable and gratefully received by
the District militiamen.
"The soldiers have to buy a lot ot
toilet articles," he says, "and If the
folks at home will send tooth brushes,
tooth paste, hair brushes, combs, unfl
articles of that kind the militiamen
can save their money and have a goo'l
time here with It. The soldiers tike
to open packages and find surprises,
so tho Washingtonians might make
up some surprise boxes with which to
delight the boys at Christmas tim."

According to Department of Agrl-

Wheat, corn, potatoes, beans, and
many other crops consumed largely
by man are not up to normal. The
wheat crop is only tbout two-thirds
of that of last vear. and 100,000,000
bushels short of the five-year aver
age. With huge exports to the war
centers there Is ample cause for the
high prices paid tor it.
Beans, a staple for which there has
never been found a Substitute, are
hundreds of thousands of bushels
short. Potatoes are only about two-
thirds of a crop short. Barley is short
and so Is corn.
The present crop ot corn Is about

A largely Increased demand for rice
Is foreshadowed, however, by the ex
tensive advertising campaign being
conducted ' rice growers to educate
the nubile in wavs of eating It.
The sweet potato crop Is well above
the average, though a little short or
last year's output. Tobacco Is full
and abundant. being 100,000,000
pounds abovo the average.
