Notable Changes for Company A to
be Inangarated This Fall by
Cspt. E. H. Dnnatln.
TO HAVE BOARD OF CONTROL
Rifle Practice at the Armory During
Winter, and an Outside Range
Company A, of the Cth regiment, Il
linois national guard, is to undergo
some notable changes. Next Monday
night at the Armory hall, corner Fif
teenth street and Third avenue, in
compliance with an order from Adjt.
Gen. Smith, Capt. Ed Dunavin will
call a meeting of the commissioned
officers of the company and from them
will be chosen nine members to form
a board of control to 13 empowered
with authority to take entire charge of
the armory. In addition to this com
mittee, arrangements for rifle practice
to be held every Monday night after
drill practice by every member of the
company will he made, a mandolin
club and two basketball teams will
be formed, and the matter of choosing
a site for outdoor range, for some time
under consideration, will be discussed.
With these sweeping changes the local
company will rank among the first of
Wit llf Hun on llunlnrnN Ilnnln.
A board of control will be a feat
ure that will do away with much trou
ble heretofore experienced, and be a
source of economy to the company.
The renting and charge of the hall
was alternately in the hands of the
members of the company and the
Naval Reserves, and most of the time
without any one to look after it. This
was a matter of much inconvenience
and lost money for those who are
connected with the company and the
Reserves, as it was not known where
to go to get the use of the hall, and
no definite arrangements were made
for collection of rentals.
Rifle practice for the members wjll
be an addition to the company's work
that will improve the marksmanship
ind also save the stale money.
;M Mr dn I for Ilext Shot.
At present the practice will be held
in the hall, where are installed two
gallery targets. The distance wilbe,
r.i feet and the one who proves him
self the most accurate shot for the
Irst three straight rounds, 10 shots
o a round, will be awarded a gold
nedal with an engraving of "Champion
Rifleman. 22-calibre, Co. A.. 111. N. G."
The practice will take place each night
3f the drill practice. The gun to be
used will be a 22-calibre rifle. With
this practice in vogue the company
will be able to become acctirate with
'he gun without having to be sent to
Chicago at the expense of the state.
There has been practice had at in
tervals but no regular time was set for
it, as will be the case hereafter. The
old medal will be contested for at
Outdoor practice will probably not
e taken up before next year, and
while the site for the range has not
been decided upon. Watertown has
been suggested. The establishment of
in outdoor range is always sanctioned
"jy the state and the matter has rested
with the commanding officer.
IllvrrMion for I lie MrmlirrM.
To break the monotony in their reg
tlar work, the members have conclud
ed to organize a mandolin club and
wo basketball teams. The teams and
the club will practice after drill. The
earns will first play among themselves
ind after finding that they are per
'ected for good games, they will chal
'"nge teams of the tri-eitics.
The mandolin club will also confine
tself to company quarters until
t has become proficient, when it will
robably give public entertainments.
The prospective candidates for the
basketball teams are Capt. Dunavin.
Lieut. Koch, Jahns, Souders, Smythe.
Hoffman. Ehrhorn, McManus, Shiffer.
and Duckworth. The mandolin club
will consist of Jahns, Rogers and
Rabn, and others.

Prairie Chickens are Exempt.
The story regarding the opening ol
the game season appearing in last
?venings Argus gave the impression
that prairie chickens were among the
game that could be hunted In this
state this season. The information
was from official sources, but it ai
pears was erroneous. Prairie chickens
are protected until 1907 by the state
game laws, and there is a penalty for
killing them before that time. The
quail season is from Nov. 10 to Dec. 30.
