XEAIl LAST LEG TO FRONT Metropolitan Division Now Fully Equipped' and Well Trained for Xext Duty. ipti'tat Dttpatrh in Tits Scv. (.'AMI' TITOS'. I.. I . Feb. 24. The war classic "Over There'' has suddenly tnken on a new meaning around this camp. Hver since the first troop trains pulled Into't'ie npur here on September 10 It has ben tho really great popular favorite, but thin was because It had a swing and a lilt that other war songs have lacked. Hut to-dy It haei n deeper and surer slgnlflcince Instead of merely lustily shouting, "And we won't come back till It's over ocr there" these boys of New York' own have suddenly found romc thing to think about In the lines. For "the Yanks arc coming," and It's these very city bos who arc the Yanks. Probably it was the great parade down Fifth avenue on Washington's Birthday, that has accomplished most of this. As nothing else but definite orders could have done, this storming and capture of the city's heart brought homo somehow the fact that France was not so far or bo long awav after all. From th" newspaper reports of the parade and from subsequent editorials hailing the National At my men of Camp I'ptou as the splendid ajid trained sol diers that they are. the thousands who were forced through lack of trarxporta tlon facilities, to remain here have been able to catch at least a little of th won derful spirit of pride that the city hud In her men Friday. This afternoon and to-night long special trains are pulling Into ramp with other thousands of olive drab clad fighters who are bubbling over with their tales of conquest. Next .Mnrc-h Mny De to War. These boys teallze that In every proba blllts this was their last march through the fctreets of New York, except In some not far distant night when thev will silently hurry to gray ships tha't will carry them over seas to the glory of real fighting Just when this time will really come is still a matter of conjecture, but if a hundred rumots and hints tna be pieced together the result stunds clear that u month more may see the .Metro politan Division on Its way It Is certain that the folks back home, the mothers and wives and sweethearts and friends, )1ae not realized this as yet. It seemed perfectly logical for the HeguLir Army and for the National (tiiard to start away to the wats. but the National Army Ii.ir been so ncil horn. Is still n unsung and untried, that It is hard to grasp the fart that It stands near the very front ranks of our fighting forces, Kspccially is this true of the Metro politan niv.slon New York'u own and It Is breaking no censorship order to say that everything point" to tills outfit being th' first one from the half million drafted troops to be sent acro. Last week Tiik Srv tarried a atory that the 'new slogan of Camp U'pton was "To France by April 1." The last seen days heie. with the impetus given the division by the wonderful parade, ha" only In tensified and made stronger the belief that this date Is approximately the cor rect one. "The Infantty is fullv equipped.'' a high officer rcmatked to-da. "In ord nance, clothing and field equipment we are ready to be ordered away to-morrow. We have learned, and learned well, the foundations of soldiering and with a few weeks In the training camps In Frit tire where we could advance five times .-m quickly as here-we would be m.idy to take our places In the trem lie? " Perfect Training h- Ktprrfi. one reason for the remarkable strides made by tho National Army is that the entire organization had no traditions and i ustoms and interlacing friendships to forget and outlhe. The National Army and lteserr officer, .springing from the finest blood and iron of America, guided by the trained and experienced hands of the men of high command Itegular At my officers who have no military sit. penors in all the world took hold of fa, h great cantonment with new en thnsiasm and the finest spirit of patriot ism The selective, men who came tn them likewise had nothing to forget In mili tary matters and were like a sculptor's modelling clay In their hands. As a re sult of all this the Ilegular Army Uen crals and Colonels and I,leutetinnt-Colo. nela working through Ue medium of their Junior lieserve officers were able to mould a wonderful army from this green and apparently unpromising mate rial Washington md the War Department realize all this now and are casting friendly glances in the direction of the great National Army training camps, itid especially toward Ramp t'pton. which ! by all odds the most faorahly known. To-day local boaid are practically finished with their ork In classifying and examining Clas 1 of the next draft and a million men arc ready to be sent Into the training camps This, of course, cannot b done until the present troops are sent ocr was. With the Increased shipping facilities and the call for more troops. Camp L'pton eagerly awaits Its orders to en train for the final leg of the great cru sade.

Camp Wads worth, the training ground of the Twen-ty-scventh Division of the Fnlted States Army, the Federalized National tluard of New" York State, has evidently met with favor with tho War Department and Its development as one of the great est army training stations In the South lb liecomlng more and more apparent with each day's operations. The arrival here some weeks ago of Itrlg.-flen. Guy Carleton as commander of what has become known as the train ing depot for corps and army troops, fol lowed by ten other Itrlgadler-i!etiernls and the necessary Majors, Captains and Lieutenants to olllcer something like n score of pioneer regiments, was. the first Intimation nf the War 1 c partinent's plans for this camp, but since that tlm requests for approximately 1,000 acres of additional land, the arrival of great stores of lumber and material for camp construction, together with t ie transfer last week of six depleted regiments of the New F.ngland .National Guard from Camp Greene, Chai lotto, "N.

It Is generally understood, while thci Is of course no otllcl.il announcement, that the contractors who have built Camp Wadswortb hao before them this spring practically ns much construction as they have done during the last sewn months.

Hnll Transportation it Problem. Whether Camp Wadswortb Is going to have the necessary rail transportation Is still an open queatlon. Hut so much for the material phases of things at Camp Wadsworth, Febru ary lias brought good weather Ideal weather, in fact, with otto or two da.Ns to be excepted and this has thrown the ttoops Into tho open for the llrst time since the first week In Deccmlier, when winter came to stav for two months. Those two months are looked back upon as the testing time. The division con tinued o maintain a good health record, one of the licst In the country. Hut now, however, as stated above, the troops are In the open at.d In their various activi ties arc scattered over no small terri tory, from Camp Wadswortb to the ar tillery range and rifle ranges twenty six miles northwest. An IntercMiIng performance Is being carried on by the machine gun units. They have :e target range on the camp reservation nnd the rattle of their guns, reminding one of riveters at work on u sttel structure. In beard almost con stantly over eainp. These units are get ting In s-ome good work, and the In structors In charge are by no means dis appointed In the marksmanship being shown by the former cavalrymen Hut fhlM is Just one feature of the training ot an army. When the weather s fall and everybody is working, there tire not only columns of soldiers sltetchlng across the hllli In every direction, march lug nnd counterman hlng. drilling and "carrying on" In every form of athletic stunt, but at every turn of the road there Is a llltle detail of sodllers work ing away at some strange and mys terious dut.

The graduation of the division's young officers will of course be ntlended by sonic eort of exercises, and If the troops are still In camp at that time Invita tions wilt lie. extended to Secretary of War Itaker nnd Gov. Whitman of New York to be present. The Hostess House, erected by the War Work Council of tho Y. W. C. A. nt Camp Wadswortb and opened two weeks, ago, is proving a popular Institution. It Is attractive and l well located, and , while built pri marily for the comfort, and convenience, of the women friends liiul relatives of tho ' soldiers, the soldiers themselves ars o . ceptlng the Invitation to make them- selves at home.

The camp'M rec ord In this respect Is due In large meas ure to the watchfulness nf the .sanitary olllccrs. Col. Montgomery, sanitary Irt I spector. Is perhaps the busiest Individual I around the whole establishment. He Is 1 getting results, and In n great measute through his ability to get the men to understand why cleanliness Is of the first consideration. The arrival In catr.i last week of the six New F.ngland National Guatd regi ments converted Into pioneer organiza tions was an event that broke the tnonot- J ony of things. They iccelvejl a real welcome and were made to feel that thev ' are at home. They found their tents i up, their tires burning nnd their mess sharks supplied. 4,000 STORE CLERKS MAY QUIT.
