Thcic Is no State which ln.n a more cosmopolitan collection than I'enn ylvanla, and to teach these men why they are ngnt:ng for tills nation Is a duty which, division headquarters says, should keep Pace with physical and soldierly training.

Ala.. Oct. 16. New Jersey's military organizations have been scrttteied to the four winds ot the lnllltHiv world. Old 4ltlcs have gone a-tumblitig. Associations that took many ears In the making have been broken by tho lucie signing of a military order. Over In the depot brigade, io whldi go the oin cers and men not Included In the new ot ganlzatlons In the Blue and Oray Division, are many of the State's most prominent officers and some of her best enlisted men. There are officers and men from Delaware, too, who are In the same boat, the only teglmenl from Hint Stale having also fig ured in tho gcn-ral lemgatilzatlon ot the Fifty-seventh lnfantrv Brigade, commanded iy Brigadier Uenci.il Charles W. Barber. The most Important assignments in the new brigade organization were given to North Jetsey offlccta. Thiee of the five colonels In the division are over in the de pot brigade waiting for something to do. Three of the lieutenant loloneis are with them. A handful of inajois and a big fain llv of captains ate thcie. too Their as signments to the depot br.g.ide are by no means permanent as there are other units to be formed here. Out of the ofrkcrs nnd men Iheie must be organized a number of trains and other units, but for the most part places will be wanting fur a number of the beit known officers In the State. In the assignments of mptains and lieu tenants eveiy one of the six regiments has been given equal repi.entullon by General Baiber. Officers for each of the four com panies have been selected from tho lists of ellglbles In every regiment nnd because there is an Inciease of t'vo lieutenants In every company under the new tab'.es of otgaiilza tlim, vlrtuall evety lieutenant In the two State organization has been given a place In the new formations. Troops from the First, Second and Fourth Xew Jersey have gone Into the formation of the new 113th P.eglmctit. It will be commanded by Colonel John D. Fraser, foi merly ot the First Regiment, of Newark Into the lllth Iteglment have gone the officers and men from the Third and Fifth, of New Jerse. and the FirM. of Delaware. Combinations ot companies have been used to form tho new companies, each of which has 250 men. So far as lias been practicable the men have been kept In the battalion formed from their respective regi ments, but In some instances transfers to other outfits have been found necessary. The Fourth, Regiment, ot Jersey City, was especially hard lilt by such dtnfts. Tienton'M troops and officers form the Second Battalion of the 113th Regiment. Some of the Second's officers went Into the headquarters and machine-gun companies of tho leglment also. The entile official per sonnel of tho First Battalion is from the Fit st Iteglment, while tho Fourth gives all of the officers for the Third Battalion. The First Battalion Is commanded by Major Wil liam II. Cuntleld. of Newark; the Second by Major John II. McCtlllough. of Trenton, and the Thltd by. Major William A. Illg Clna. of Jerley City. Major Prlre, who U known in New Jersey as one of the finest soldleis in the State, will command Companies K, F, G and II, ot the 114 th Iteglment. Captain J. Walter Scott formeily the adjutant of the Third Iteglment of Camden, has been named to the command of the headquarteis company, and Captain Walter H. Leedom. of Wood bui.v. and formerlv the suppl officer for the Camden leglment. was picked for tlie cupply officer of Ihe new outfit Companies B, of Camden, and II. of As-bui-y Park. In the old leglmenlal organiza tion, have been combined to form the new Companv K, of the 114th Regiment. Cap tain Walter L. Auten. of the Anbury Park company, commands the new companv. Ills aids are llcutenants Harry tlarsln, Asbuiy Park : Albert S. Howard, Cnmden, and one first lieutenant to be assigned, and Second Lieutenants George B. Jamison, of Asbury Park, and AIci.ander F.

DIX SOLDIERS BUY $708,100 OF LOAN Dr. Van Dyke Speaker To day to Boost Campaign in Army Camp ROOKIES "GROWING" FAST CAMP DIX. Wrlghtstown. N" J, Oct 16 Twelve thousand six hundred and fifty "rookies," moro than naif the camp, havn subscribed to Liberty Bondn In the four dass' campaign. Tho total subscrip tion today was J708,lnu. malting a per capita subscription of mote than $31. Offi cials are elated over the splendid showing that the camp Is making, the most encour aging fea'tute of which Is the high percent age of men who have subscilbed. There are still about 10,000 men who have not yet come ncro.ss, and the campaign still has .i week to run. "Tho predatoiy Potsdam gang, tho peo plo vi ho forced the war on the vvoild." was the way Dr. Henry Van Dyke, foimer Min ister to Holland, characterized the Knlser and his cohorts In a bitter attack on Hie imperial Governments before 10.000 rookies at Camp Dix today. Doctor Van Dyke's visit was In connection with the Llbetty Loan campaign which Is In progres here. The speaker, no longer fettered by of ficial position. Is fiee to o.Npress himself and to tell exactly of what ho has seen In the n lining nations, particularly of the bar barism and hot i ols that he saw left In the wnlte of the Geiinati occupation of Belgium ami this he did In a t-ltnlght-froni.thc-slinul-iler niannct Unit won over every mini who heatd him. As bo told of the hatbanc ineasuics that Hie Cellulitis omploved, the gentle tippeatiiuie of, the limn of culture and the Intensity of talk became mllitnnt. and time and again he characterized the htUtnlltles of the Huns the sinking of hos pital iilp. dlstillititliiK of polsnn candy, poisoning of wells, bombing of hospitals, all a (lie n oik of "that damned Potsdam gang" Doctor Van Dke said "Wo ate fighting to end wai. nnd we mo fighting against barbatism. I am a paclllt, with the em pilaris on the list, tor tbete nre times when even the mot pnitlu must light And this Is one of Hie fmen I have seen with my own eves the people or Belgium forced Into slavery and have talke'd with people who saw their own parents shot by Prussian. The Huns have been guilty of acts of bar barism that would make the Hottentot ashamed, It Is that barbarism whlcli wr are fighting to overcome, and there can be no penco or victory until the powers that have forced tills brutality on mankind have been destroyed." The effect of Hie little man on the 10,000 men was wonderful. He spoke for almost an hour, nnd when he asked them If they wanted Iihu to continue, there was u mighty rhoiUH of "es." and tho doctor kept on In his nccounts of the illfferonco In tho cmv nlrv tit Hie allied lighters and tho brutality of the Huns. Ho told of how the Germans had sneered at our "conscript tinny," but pointed out how our nrmy Is not a con script army, but an army ot volunteer, as Is evidenced by the $S,O0O,00O support the National Aimy has given to tho Liberty I.nnn Added Impetus to the campaign was g.ven today by tho presence of Dr. Henry Van Djke. wIhj tame io tho camp this morning to speak to Hie mm on tho lea sons for buying Llbcilv Bonds Dr. Van t ke was scheduled to speak last Thursday, when the campaign was opened, but was held up becnue of the Inclement weather. The "looklcs" Hre all very much In the good esteem of their commanding officers Just now. Tho way they have supported the Llbetty, Loan 1ms been one big boost for litem. . l'ui the progress ihe men are making In initllaiy deportment has de veloped n Sunny Jim" smile with all their regular at my officers. Regular army men havo the habit of Judging the tnotnle of an Indlvldunl soldier and n command bv the spirit In which they adapt themselves to the mllltaty courtesies and their conformity to the etiquette of military life A good soldier nitihes the spirit ot thoe formali ties. Tho man who has not the makings of a soldier Inolt upon the formalities the saluting and the' deferent e to lank that is essential to military elflcleno as n mark of degtad.it ion The men of the National Atuiy heie have almost without exception i aught the spirit of tho salute and when an' olllcet heaves In view the men ate quick to salute and Ihey nil do it with the pep and plinth that has dt lighted their oflicei. The men are still In tile rookie stage, but the olllcets aie pleased. As one army tinker pointed out, tbete men havo noth ing to unliain. American IJ-lloat Victim Dies WASHINGTON. Oct. If.
