STRIPES AGAIN CHANGED
Illinois National Guard Officer Must lae
Others of the infantry arm of the
Illinois National Guard are having
troubles of their own. Once more the
adjutant general issued orders, this
time taking off the baby blue stripe
from the trousers and the blue field
from the shoulder straps ard replac
ing them with the old white. This
will necessitate an expenditure of
from $5 to $10 per officer. The orders
call for the change to be made before
Last spring the white stripes were
taken off from th; trousers and all
blue facings used. This baby blue
made a pretty combination with the
darker blue of the cloth, but the ad
jutant general's office has decided that
the blue is liable to fade, and hence
the change back to white. The former
change was a costly one and the pres
ent one will be more so the result is
