April 2 One of the most interesting .occur rences- at Schofield this week haa been the target practise of Battery C with the big 4.7-lach, siege rifle 4, throwing 60-pound shell and shrapnel at targets 7500 to 8000 yards away, about four and a half miles. .- Two problems were fired byCapt J. W. KilbretlC Jr.; on Tuesday, the firing point being near Wahiawa and the targets at the foot of the Walanae range. . The trajectory passed about a half ' mile orer the county ; road, but by a system of signals the guns were not - fired while any automobiles or wagons were traveling along the road In front of the guns. The screech of the shells could be heard at Schofield and sounded as if they were passing directly over the post though the line of fire was more than a quarter of a mile away from the buildings. . . , One of .the targets was a target butt of the old rifle range, which was assumed to represent an enemy's trench. Of the 16 shells fired at this target, two by their delayed action ruse burst over the trench and one piercea tne parapet ana Durst as 11 entered . the trench, after boring its way through 10 feet of earth. . - Yesterday Lieut .
