M.,lst Kansas Regiment (Encamped) Ft. Riley, Kan., June 27, 1916. Western Kansas World, Wa-Keeney, Kansas, Dear Sir: ; No doubt there are some who would like to hear from the Wa-Keeney boys who enlisted for service in the K. U. Company officially degignated as Company M, First Regiment, Kansas National GuaTds. Soon after our arrival in Lawrence we were shown to the recuiting office and immediately examined for enlist ment. " It will be interesting for a few of our f rierlds out there to learn that we passed this examination eas ily even above the average. We entrained at once (Friday morn ing) and started for Riley leaving in Lawrence a large crowd of enthusias tic but dejected looking people who had assembled on the grounds to see the boys off. All along the line peo ple seemed to realize that wo were not on a picnic excursion, but that & crisis was at haal which demanded men who would "do or die" for their country. We will frankly admit that we would rather "do", than "die." There are at present two Kansas reg iments encamped here and three bat teries consisting of machine gun, sig nal and ar tilery corps. To one not experienced In camp life this is a de cidedly novel experience. We have learned mo.e about militaryism in the last few days than we ever ex pected to know. Our program each day has consisted of reveille at 5 a. m. giving us ten minutes to dress be fore assembly for roll call, theiv we fix tent and get ready- for mess; mess call finds us all in line with our kits in hand ready for beans, sow bosom and coffee. Immediately after eats we fall in line for fatigue duty which means in pure U. S. language to clean our company street of refuse. Next comes call to arms for drill which lasts four hours evefy hour a ten minutes rest. Then beans again and we are off duty for the rest ot the day until 6 o'clock at which tima we have retreat, then beans and we are excused for the night ex Kansas. Suitatonum Wakeeney, Kansas cept when detailed for some special duty such as guard, etc. The bunch in our company is con sisted of K. U. students and we enjoy one continual round of pleasure giv ing yells and songs such yells as "Rock Chalk" and several composi tions which we composed o-irselves our famous infantry song: The infantry, the infantry With dust behind their ears, The infantry, the infantry That laps up all the bears, The cavalry, artillery, and All the engineers couldn't whip This bunch of infantry In a hundred thousand years. The latest reports from the captain is that we leave for the border the middle or this week. -We were mus tered into federal service today and we all hope that this signifies speedy departure. Our mascot is a white spitz dog that we promoted at Topeka as we came through, bis name is Jay Hawk and on the whole is some pup. We have in camp a bath house and other conveniences which detract front the usual stringency of military life. As we left Wa-Keeney in a harry we missed telling a few good bye. We will be pleased to hear front our friends, so consider this an invitation to write. "Bill" Lucas, formerly of Wa-Kee ney, is with this regiment in compa ny A, his mother visited us in camp yesterday, also Forrest Forrester, his wife and little daughter, Virginia, and Jean Forrester also paid us a visit and took some snap shots of the Wa-Keeney squad in khaki. Yesterday being Sunday several thousand people visited camp and we met many whom we knew. We will soon be on our way to Mexico. So good bye. N. D.
