Colonel Commanding The -Journal Cadet
ESTERDAY morning there was
a special drill fpr all those
wanting it, and the appearance
of five companies was a sure sign that
there is no lack of interest. These com
panies T^rere commanded by cadet offi
cers, who gave company, drill. This
gave good practice" for both the men
and officers. Later, the officers were
made to command in a little battalion
1 In -the afternoon the same number of
companies met, but they were much
i larger. The company drill was dis
pensed with and battalion drill began
at once. The boys did well, considering
the number of new recruits in-line.. The
Journal Newsboys' band played several
selections and the cadets marched in
review, companv front-
to music
One thing that showed up well was
the uniforms. Many-of the cadets had
them, and this added greatly, to the
About thirty recruits were received
and will be given special drill in order
to be able to go in with other cadets,
i and not impede- the progress. During
the electrie storm, when it looked like
I heavy rain, the cadets were given shel
ter in the armory. This privilege is
offered them so there need be no ap-force
prehension in case it rains when there

[heads up, snappy military step, and
well-drilled movements. These men,
who are well able to judge, said that it
I was a great work and ought to be en

look forward to a greater one, and then
to a still greater one.

a short way off, and the,G. A. R. rewithout
union not'three months* away.
The squad and foot movements are
in fairly good shape, but. there is still
more to be done. We have the manual
of arms to. learn, and in. learning this
am quite sure we will have to sacri
fice marchings and squad movements
for it. So there is any amdunt of work
to be done, and no spare time'in which
to do it.
We will Continue squad movements
until June 1 that is, after the Decora
tion Day parade and then we must
put forth every energy to master the
uses, of the guns.
There seems to be a mistaken idea,
arid one I want dispelled at once, in re
gard to what is the paramount organi
zation., One or two of the companies
are howling, "our company,'' signify
ing that the whole organization
tfh their individual1
organization Thi
is a mistake and must stop. You are
each an integral part of a -'genuine
Boys' Brigade, and one company is no
better than another.
It seems that it ought to be unneces
sary to speak of respect, but several
tunes the last week, members
cadet corps have been passed nnd no
attempt at salute was made. The in
structors and cadet officers must en
this rule and inane every cadet
salute, not in a slouchy, careless man-
ner,' but in the genuine, respectful
way, and demerits must be given for
this- offense.
A March Friday Night.
It is to the best advantage fo every
cadet tcrsee as much military work as
jrossibjefs- and for that reason all.eadeta
are to n%et at the Armory campus Fri
day nifeht, May 18, at"^ o'clock, and
the several, companies will, then march
out to Lyndale and Lake street and
see-the battalion of national guard go
thru battalion drill.
As to the Decoration Day par.ade,
there must be an understanding in re
gard to the uniforms. Only cadets
having uniforms can be allowed to
'march in their companies, but it must
also be understood that if a cadet does
not march that day he is still a cadet
and must join his company at the next
regular drill.
Commencing this,fsveek every cap
tain or lieutenant Of a company is
obliged to look after the welfare of
his own company, and at every drill
this week the cadet. captain or lieu
tenant must take the names of all
cadets not in unif orm, and divide them
up, so many to each officer and non
commissioned officer, who wili go out
and help the ununiformed to get his
suit. The officers will be held respon
sible for this being done. There are
350 uniforms out, and this is only a
little more than half needed for the.
parade on May 30. The officers must
also, get their sabres.
As to the movements-to be used in
our next march, we must practice
squad movements, squads right and
left, squads right, and left about, right
and left front into line, right, and
left, hand salute, eyes right, or eyes
left. On right into line and left into
line will also be used .some, and allmatter1

Odmnany/ frd^V:%^s^,lmtrtant-:aaTd
the line 'must-be,kept straighti
I notice a tendency yet for men to
crowd in and lose their interval. This
is done either in line or in column and
lis a bad mistake., 2
breaking the line and no good
and free movement can be executed
when the men are so jammed.
Flans for the Future.
It is expected that the cadets will
go out to Fort Shelling soon. The
parades out there would be beneficial
and it would make a "splendid outing
for all the cadets. If we should go
we would perhaps need to start about
4:30 in the afternoon and -take lunch
with us. This is floinething that will
perhaps be done soon, tho nothing defi
nite has been decided upon.
There is another thing .1 would
strongly advise. It is, that different
companies get together, say on a Sat
urday afternoon. They would have
lunch and would take a march out of
the city into some nice, cool place.
There they could play games, and eat
their lunch and have a splendid drill.
This would give the boys a fine outing
and chance for a splendid. drill. If
any of the companies care to do any
thing of this -kind, let .me know and I
will complete plans for you. For this
purpose I have placed batallion drill at
9:30 in the morning and the work not
being so hard as to tire the boys, I
know you can all stand it.
I have another scheme for the differ
ent companies that I would gladly tell
to all the boys interested enough to
Now, it sometimes happens that
boys get discouraged from one thing,
or another. Don't do this. I know
the boys all had a splendid chance to
feel bad when they did not get the
flag, but don't get discouraged. If you
felt bad, get angry and every cadet and
every company make up your: mind
that company can't hold, that, flag
and in that way you will get the best
possible spirit and a spirit, fas. tetter
than that of one who gets discouraged'
and becomes a quitter. Stick to your
drill, and do your best. Don't let up.
Get all your friends to come into your
company and build up the number so
we will have to have three regiments
