Entering its sixth month of mo
bilization training, the 184th Field
Artillery Regiment, formerly the
8th Infantry, Illinois National
Guard, is fast shaping into a crack
|unit. Upwards of 1,400 strong,
the 184th F.A. is about half na
tional guard, half selectee.
I Artillery study is new, even to
ihe old-timers of the 184th, and
for that reason the whole regiment
has been going to school, study
ing artillery problems and practice
ever since the unit moved to Fort
Custer from Chicago last Janu
ary. A number of officers and men
have attended the field artillery
school at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
Extensive courses, taught by
qualified men, are conducted dai
ly in the 184th. Some of the sub
jects covered, especially for non
commissioned officers, are radio
qcrnmunication, motor mainten
ance, supply, administration, and
mess management,
The main weapon of the 184th
F.A, is the 155mm howitzer. The
regiment left for Camp McCoy,
Wis., April 26 for firing practice,
returning May 12,
In command of the 184th F.A.
is Colonel Anderson F. Pitts, who
enlisted as a private in the regi
ment in 1912. Wounded as a lieu
tenant commanding a machine
gun company in the World War,
Col. Pitts received' two citations
for his service. Col. Pitts was ath
letic and recreation officer of the
regiment for 15 years, during
which time the regiment won the
Illinois National Guard basketball
championship twice, the boxing
championship three times, the
track championship twice. Col.
Pitts took command of the 184th
in March of this year.
As the 370th Infantry, 93rd Div
ision, the regiment won battle
honors in the Lorraine and Oise
Aisne engagements of the World
War. The outfit also saw service
on the Mexican border in 1916.
The 184th, always during its
long history, has been properly
able to boast of a fine regimental
band. Its present band, conducted
by Warrant Officer Clarence O
Owens, can take its place besire
any military band with a show
ing. The regimental band has
presented a number of concerts
since coming to Fort Custer, bc
s'des taking part with the regi
ment in parades.
Attached to the 5th Division
for training, the 184th will soon
take its p ace with Fort Custer’s
finished artillery units. Tr.e
regiment has grown in man-pow
er, developed in gunnery efficien
cy with constant practice. Se
lectees and regulars alike have
taken to their new jobs as artil
lerymen with a spirit which in
dicates that the 184th FA. is turn
ing into a crack unit of the line.

relations consultant with the Na

The Department of Health does
not intend to create a segregated
venereal disease clinic for Ne
gices, Dr. Herman N. Bundesen in
formed the Chicago Branch, Nat
ional Association for the Ad
vancement of Colored People, this
The statement was in response
to an inquiry made by the N. A.
A. C. P. concerning a widely ru
mored plan to set up such a clin
ic at 43rd and State streets. The
association expressed its unquali
fied opposition to such a move.
Dr. Bundesen’s reply follows:
‘Piease be informed that for
the last four years a venereal
disease clinic for women and
children has been in operation
at that location and the present
plans are as follows:
"First, to increase the capac
ity of the clinic that more
women and children may be
“Second, to improve the ser
vices, both diagnostic and treat
ments, at this clinic.
“Third, this will not alter, or
in any way change the status
of the present clinic at 26th
street, which will continue to
function as formerly. But here
too, an effort will be made to
increase the capacity of the clin
ic and improve the service.
“In none of these plans is
any segregation as to race an
ticipated. The Chicago Health
Department is merely attempt
ing to give improved venereal
disease service for whoever
may apply.”

Stomachs of chrone alcoholics
look no different from those of
total abstainers.
So says Dr. Leonidas Berry,
trillianl chairman of the division
of digestive diseases at Provident
hospital and recognized as one of
the nation’s foremost authorities
on the use of the flexible gastro
scope, the delicate and highly
technical device permitting the
trained physician to actually look
inside a patient’s stomach.
Dr. Berry examined 100 chron
ic alcoholics from the flophouse
area in Chicago’s loop district, :
men who have for years consumed 1
from two to three pints of whis- 1
key, rubbing alcohol, anti-freeze i
mixture and the like per day. 1
His findings were reported at the J
recent annual meeting of the Am- «
erican Medical association in i
Cleveland before the section on J
digestive diseases. This was the
first time in the history of the as- <
sociation that a Negro physician i
had appeared on the program. i
Opinions Differ (
A pioneer in the use of the gas- £
troscope, Dr. Berry is also the first i
to use that instrument on chronic 1
alcoholics and thus debunk the <
popular belief that alcohol ruins k
