FOR ALL OVER MILITARY AGE.

New Haven.—The Internal Defense
league, an organization to be com
posed chiefly of former athletes be
tween the ages of forty-fWe and sllty,
to being organized by Walter Camp,
Tale's football adviser, foi 'aome guard
duty In the event of war. Mr. Camp
announced tbat the league would be
organized at New Bares, wueu he will
•tart a body of prominent New Elaven
business and professional men In ■
course of physical training. The league
baa been started by Mr. Camp at the
request of many former college ath
letes who are over military age, but
who are desirous of performing some
kind of guard duty which ordinarily
would have to he performed by the ml-
Utla. The object of the new organiza
tion Is to make the regular militia
available for more important duties.
f-Mr. Camp stated that for the past
*w months he has been receiving nu-
Photo by American l'res« Association
nerout communications from former
athletes between fifty and sixty years
ijsa asking if there was not some branch
**ot the service where they could be use
ful. In the event of war it will be
necessary, to guard ra'.lrouds, bridges
and munition factories, and many men
past military age believe that they can
get Into good enough physical shape to
perform these duties. _
The league will not be limited to col
lege men, but will be open to all men be
tween the ages of forty-five and sixty.
Mr. Camp has mapped out a course of
training, which he believes will be ef
ficient and yet will not interfere with
the members', routine business duties.
' The »quad which went Into training at
New Haven will give up one morning
hour a day at first--from 8 to 9—to
walking and other exercises, which Mr.
Camp will anggaat The plan Is to take
only light exercise at first, gradually
working the men Into shape until they
are able to tramp fifteen or twenty
miles a day without fatigue. ...
In the manufacturing cities »uch as
New Haven and, in fact, all over New
England, there will be a great amount
of guard duty to perform, and Mr.
Camp i believes that if the older men,
who have already strewn tnii'-h cntbusl
aslasm to do their "bit," can be worked
up to proper physical condition the mi
litia will be relieved of much of this
borne guard duty.
After the league gets under way In
New Haven it is expected that the
movement will be taken up quickly
throughout the country.

word came to. the relatives of Peter
Manseau that the young inau had been
killed by falling from a tower he had
been repairing on the Mexican border.
The aged mother has thought her son
dead, and all the rest of the family and
friends held the same opinion until re

friend of Albert Manseau stating that

War of the Spanish Succession.
It would be bard to conceive such a
combination of powers as this: On the
one side Trance, Spain and Bavaria;
on the other side England. Holland,
Savoy, Austria, Prussia, Portugal and
Deumark. This, however, was the
lineup of nations in what Is known as
Queen Anne's war.
When King William 111. of England
died in March, 1708, and was succeed
ed by Anne, the sister of his wife and
daughter of James 11., England and
France were on the verge of war. The
break came May 15, the conflict that
followed being also known as the war
of Spanish succession. It was in this

Philo Patriotic Night
Friday, March 15. was the big
j evening at the Leavenworth high
| school. All sorts of interesting and
surprising events occurred in quick
succession. Promptly at 7 o'clock a
program was given in the audito
rium by the Philomathian society. A
large crowd was present to witness
the performance and everyone
! seemed pleased with every number,
which from a critic's point of view
was quite worthy of praise. The
platform was attractively arranged
| with headlights as well as footlights
which illuminated brightly our glo
rious stars and stripes which were
j draped artistically across the stage.
The last and perhaps the most ef
fective number was an address
| given by Roswell McNett in which
Ihe gave an account of the world
through the eyes of a soldier; first
j of his life as a raw recruit, then as
a regular, then telling us of his
trip to Hawaii, involving many in
trestinjr things concerning that is
| land and her people. Later he told
lof his return to the states. He

Friday's Ball Game
Leavenworth's team put it all
over the Wenatchee All Stars last
Friday night in a rousing contest.
Although the first half was livelier
and full of more brilliant plays the
whole game was an interesting one.
Amid cheers and shouts of victory
the game ended in a score of 12-^2.
Leaven worth's lineup was as fol
