New York, Nov. 1I.-Inspired %by
the success of the military encamp
ment at Plattsburg last summer
where hundreds of business and pro
fessional men received training for
one month from United States army
officers, Maj. Gen. Lconard Wood an
nounced tonight that the government
would conduct another along exactly
similar lines at Camden, S. C.
"This encampment," Gen. Wood
said, "will begin probably early in
February. It will be for the same
purposes and run along the same
lines as the one held at Plattsburg.
Camden was selected because the en
campiment was wanted in the South
and we had to select sone place
which was not far away froin one of
our army posts to march regular
troops there conveniently," said Gen.
Wood. "The men who attend the
Camden encampment will receive
trailing in 1111111a'ry calisthenics, rIflel
practice, offensive and (lefelsive field
