Columbila, April 14.-The people of

the manner in which our boys "treated

we will have the opportunity at first

of these imionsters that broke down the
morale of the German army and con
tributed so greatly to the final vic
tory. Three of these great tanks will
voiie to South Carolina. They will
lbe shil ped dilet from Camp Meade,
NAld., to Greenville, Columbia and
Charleston. It is hoped that Southern
fighters will be in charge of these
tanks and it is expected that Lieu t.
.\rIhur L'. Varnedov, commulandinig the(
Iniks in this district, will be able to
dilmonstrate on1 of them in South
Carolina. A erew of two ien will
operate each tan k and will take pars
