Army Board, Which Investigat
ed Changes in Accoutre
ments, Makes Report.
SEVEN POUNDS TAKEN OFF
New Equipment Being Manufactured
at Rock Island Arsenal Fol
lowing Experiments Here.
Washington, D. C, Aug. 24. Follow
ing the action of the board of army
officers appointed to improve the out
fits of men In the infantry branch of
the army, a new equipment is now be
ing manufactured at Rock Island ar
senal, which will prove of greater com
fort to the soldier and better his effl
ciency on the field. The board's ac
tion is approved by Secretary Dickin
son. Gala Scrta Pond.
Comfort and light weight are the
chief desiderata. The new accoutre
ments will weigh 38 pounds, seven
pounds lighter than the old, the differ
ence meaning the Infantry can march
longer and with less fatigue. The old
equipment has been the subject of
criticism by troops in the field, partic
ularly in the Philippines.
Did Itu Work Here.
The foregoing Associated Press dis
patch received today indicates that the
board, which has been at work for a
year or more and has been referred to
from time to time m the columns of
The Argus, has finally made its report.
Most of the experimenting with a view
of reducing the weight of the accoutre
ment carried by the soldier in the field
was done here. A number of changes
in type and materials of the various
articles used by the soldier have been
made, so that it Is believed the fight
ing' men will not only have less
weight to hamper their movements,
but they will find the new equipment
better suited to their needs.
Such changes as the board decided
upon were reported to headquarters at
"Washington before being made public

COMING TO q
THE GREATER WORK.
For art's dear sake! In age and youth
One toiled beneath sun and moon
And saw within the wells of truth
The midnight stars at noon.
And one for joy of labor bent
Above his tasks with soul of fire; r
Ere long he saw a continent
Girdled with steel and wire.
For wealth and lure thereof each hour
One slaved nor thought of else beside.
He knew the circumstance of power
The vanity of pride.
Yet still another toiled with heart
That to its childhood ideals clung.
For duty's sake he did his part
And lived his life unsung!
