The fourteen men going to Car
Perry to compete in the nation
matches will probably have had t
most thorough schooling of any tea
that was ever sent from this stat
The men have qualified for their p
sitions on the team by their superi
knowledge of small arms, both tl
service rifle and the service forty-fr
army automatic pistol, and by the
ability to hit the bulls-eye at ar
range and keep on hitting it. In kee
ing with their other ability, fini
specimens of physical manhood wou
be hard to find.
To qualify in the rifle game as shi
at Camp Perry during the famous n:
tional matches needs all of the aboA
. virtues and then a few more.
In qualifying these men as shoote:
Col. Stogsdall and his most capab!
staff of fellow officers who direct tl
Citadel's course of action put the me
through the new regular army qual
fication course of firing during th
encampment recently held at the rifl
range at Mt. Pleasant, thereby brinj
. ing to the front ranks the expert rifle
men, sharpshooters and marksme
which the whole command contain;
Experts on Team.
The experts compose the last twen
ty firers who have faithfully reporte
at the range every week since the en
campment, and have received th
finer instructions which a nationa
match team must know.
Under the guidance of Cadet Capt
Edwin C. Perry and Coach M. B
Paine, and with the help of the farm
er national match team members fron
last years' Citadel team, the men wen
taken though the difficulties of al
ranges, two hundred, three hundred
five hundred, six hundred and one
thousand yards, rapid fire, slow fire
and the pistol course of twenty-five
The scores made and the work done
on all the ranges were very gratifying
and the men improved rapidly up to
the last stages of the game, the two
hundred yard standing off hand and
the one thousand yard range, the
"ultima thule" of the riflemen's ex
ertions for supremacy.
The two hundred offhand standing
position fire with the service rifle is
particularly difficult and much knack,
patience and practice is required to
fire the rifle at the proper instant
when the position of the sights is
such as will give bulls-eyes.
In this qualification especial men
tion is made of Cadets Asbill, Byrd,
James, Evarts; Hutchins. Scores of
46 out of fifty were made by some of
these and the average of all of the
team was well over forty out of fifty.
The winning score of the last national
matches was 48 out of 50.
The work of these same men at the
one thousand yard range was even
better as good number of 49's out
of 50 and many 48's, 46's and 45's
denote to a knowing rifleman that
such scores with ordinary service am
munition, is a sure sign that there is
a sure enough shooter back of the
It takes a real rifleman, an extra
fine starguaged rifle and special am
jnunition to better these scores, and
these men going to Gamp Perry will
have the latter two, so their records
will be heard about. The making of
the winning scores contains many
angles and combinations, not the
least of which is the men who attend
to the targets and see to it that each
shooter gets good service and correct
marking of just what he shoots, and
right here may be mentioned the very
loyal, faithful and commendable work
of the 22 or more men who pulled the
targets and signalled the hits to the
men behind the guns, during the team
try out at Mt. Pleasant. These 22
men deserve credit and thanks for the
way they stuck to their work to the
last shot on the last day, and through
the heat of a summer sun, rnd the
wet of the summer showers, they
raised and lowered heavy iron frames
with enormous thousand yard tar
gets and strained their eyes and
nerves to show accurately to each
shooter where the elusive shot hole
was. Without their good' work the
best shooters in the world would have
had their efforts set at naught. To the
Citadel's success at the national
matches at 1921 will be a word of
thanks to the boys in the butts for
faithfully helping achieve it.
When the last shot was fired and
the records all in on May 28th, and
the evidence had all been carefully
weighed by a thinking committee the
team resulted as follows:
Major LeTellier, in command, M.
B. Paine, national match instructor
as coach, Cadets Edwin C. Perry,
captain, alternate; Clarence H. Hutch
ins, assistant captain; David S. As
bill, Thos. W. Williamson, Norman F.
Evarts, B. R. Fuller, Jr., Ralph M.
Byrd, Hugh M. James, Quincy Gasque
John L. Gramling, Whitfield W. Wat
son, Carl F. Ende, Francis P. Mood,
Abe Bannett, William H. Barnwell,
James B. Edgerton, Hartford P. Gon
gaware, Cadets Pegues and Peterson.
Fourteen of the above men will go
to Camp Perry, Ohio, from August
27th to September 26, 1921, to par
ticipate in all matches to which they
are eligible. This team with others
of the Citadel and resident members
of the N. R. A. have been enrolled as
a rifle club affiliated with the Na
tional Rifle Association of America.
The Citadel has this year succeed
ed in winning the state rifle team
match for the fourth time, and with
the wonderful material in the present
team under careful guidance and in
struction jshould make the highest
scores ever made by this state in a

The team in its local range prac

personally suggested to the Citadel
by Brig. Gen. W. W. Moore, the vice
president of the National Rifle Asso

Daniels Says Harvey Has Slan
Anderson, S. C., June 3.- "Not
in the history of diplomatic relations
has any man so slandered the Ameri
can nation and people as th<? present
ambassador to the court of St. James,
when he ?ecently S:\i-i in London
that America entered the war not to
save bleeding Europe and the world
for democracy, but to save her own
interests," declared former Secretary
of the Navy Josephus Daniels, in ad
dressing young women graduates of
Anderson College commencement ex
ercises last night.
"It is a slander aimed at every.
American mother who sacrified and
worked that her son might go to
the .vont to fight the foes of democ
racy, freedom and equity among na
tions of the earth." he continued,
"and my heart is glad to see the
American press, the people and the
party of this man are not behind this
"Our boys in colleges are weigh
ing the constructive idealism of
Woodrow Wilson and measuring it
with President Harding's opposition
to the theories and practical tasks for
practical America," Mr. Daniels as
"Failure of the United States to
ratify the peace treaty is responsible
for the anxiety in America today, de
pressed conditions and the low price
of cotton," he said. ,
NOT THE GIRL OF HIS HEART
For a Moment Lonely Youth Had
Hopes, but Alas! Joy Was
Not for Him.
It is not good that a man should
live without a ( woman in his heart
And on that particular spring daj
one of blue and gold-T hore a strange

and stared out without seeing any
There was no one in the house but
the landlady, myself and the land
lady's daughter-a beautiful, brief
thing, whom I called the "Pongee
Princess" by reason of her blonde
hair, an acquisition precipitated
through a reckless use of peroxide.
She was calm, pretty and silent
The more I .thought of her, the more
she intrigued my fancy. I remem
bered she was downstairs at this very
minute rearranging the pillows on the
davenport that seemed to have spent
a sleepless night. I thought to my
self: "Ah! if she were only here by
my side that she misht pass her cool,
white hands over my eyes, my depres
sion would be lifted as if by magic."
I was interrupted by a yimid knock
on the door. I was startled for a mo

I called eagerly: "Come in."

NOT HARD TO WIN SUCCESS
Mistake to Imagine lt Calls for Ex
traordinary Skill and Cease?
There is a glamor about success
and the men who have succeeded, but
both also have a dark side, which is
too often emphasized. It has been our
observation that from their elders the
young men and women of today have
received the impression that success
ls difficult to attain and comes only
as the result of extraordinary skill
and ceaseless endeavor. Hence the
cry: "The world is against me!" 0/
the pitiful wail: *.T wish I could uo
something big, but I can't."
As a matter of fact this Is an easy
world to get along In. All that Is re
quired of any one Is a willingness to
work and to learn. To be honest, to
be cheerful, to be patient in adversity
and kind to the troubled; to be fair
with your neighbors and true to your
self are not difficult tasks, yet these
are the guide posts to happiness and
Most of our leading men and wom
en are ordinary people who have done
all these things -well and have borne
their responsibilities to the best of j
their ability.-r-Detroit Free Press.
ALL HE HAD IN HIS HAND

In the courthouse an Irishman stood
charged with stealing a watch from a
fellow citizen. He stoutly denied the
accusation, and brought a counter
charge against the accuser for assault
and battery committed with a frying
The judge was inclined to take a
common-sense view of the matter, and
regarding the prisoner said :
"Why did you allow the prosecutor,
who is a much smaller man than your
self, to assault you without resist
ance? H;id you nothing in your hand
to defend yourself?"
"Bedad, yer honor," said Pat "I
had his watch, but what was that
against his frying pan?" - London

The youthful Softlelgh seemed so
depressed that his friend Moreleigh
was moved to ask the reason.
"Alice has broken our engagement,"
said he of the downcast look.
"Sorry to hear that," said the friend.
"Why did she break it?"
"Because I stole a kiss."
"What ! A fiancee object to her fel

"The trouble was," Softleigh ex
plained, "I didn't steal it from her."
