RESIDENT RIDES3B
MILES IN 17 HOURS
ON HORSEBACK
R /
DEMONSTRATES THAT ORDER
REQUIRING ALL ARMY AND
NAVY OFFICERS TO TAKE TEST
IS NOT TOO SEVERE.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 14.—President
RooMvolt do®* not show any marked
sign* of wearlne** today as th* re*ult
of Ilia rida of 98 mil®* on horseback
yesterday. He dismounted at the
Whit® House last night more than 17
hours after having departed there
from. t , .
The president made the lona J ,,ur
ney to “prove to his critics who ba\e
found fault with the recent order re
quiring all army and navy officers to
take a physical test, that If a presi
dent, who Is not In training, can ride
90 miles plus In one day without be
ing laid up in bed thereby, It should
not be too much to ask the men who
are suppoaed to be In the best of phy
slcial training all the time to ride VO
miles In three days ’*
Mounting his faithful rider ana
Jumper “Roswell” In front of the
White House door at 8:30 yesterday
morning he dismounted at the Bame
place at 8:40 last night. The ride was
to Warrenton and back and Virginia
roads In the winter time are not usual
ly In the best of condition. Dr. Rlxey,
Dr. Cary Grayson and Capt. Archibald
Butt, one of the presidents aides, ao
oompanted him.
On the return trip the last 30 miles
of the Journey were made In sleet and
rain, while the last 16 miles were In
almost pitch darkness, Arriving at
the Aqueduct bridge across the Po
tomac, the president refused to take
the carriage which was waiting there
for him. When he dismounted hi*
coat and hat were froxen stiff with
sleet and Ice.
There were four relay* of horses,
th# first stage of the Journey out and
the last in being made by the presi
dent on “Roswell,” the second out
end th# third In on “Georgia.” while
the other two were on army horses
which the president had never before
mounted.
As the four hrseback riders, fol
lowed by two policemen on wheels and
the empty carriage, drove Into the
grounds surrounding the executive
mansion, the president. In front, with
his broad-brimmed black slouch hat
drawn down over his face, presented a
striking picture.
Both the outward and the return
trips lay through Fairfax Courthouse
to Warrenton. Arriving at the latter
place about 11 o'clock, when the pres
ident’s coming had been heralded an
hour or so before his arrival, he was
greeted by a gathering of citixens and
school children, to whom he spoke a
few words of greeting. They took
luncheon at the Warren Green hotel,
When they started to return, after a
short rest, the master of the hunt of
the Warrenton Hunt club accompanied
tbem for a few milps.
In less than an hour after returning
to the White House the president had
changed his Ice-coated clothing for
evening dress and appeared In the din
ing room, ready for as hearty a meal
aa he had eaten for a long time.
If any of the critics of his “army
riding order” had dropped in about
that time they would have been sadly
disappointed; for the president did
not show In the least by his walk that
ha had been sitting for nearly 17
hours In a hard saddle.
