Pi.patrh to Tha BUr. i FREDERICK, Md„ September I.—A throng pronounced by observers to be the larßest crowd ever assembled in this old historic town came to Frede rick yesterday to visit the camp of the Marine Corps Expeditionary Force hi the County Fair Orounds. From ihortly after daylight to long past iiusk automobiles and carriages poured into this city by every road and highway and from reville to taps the marine camp was alive with visi tors and parking space in its vicinity was at a premium. • So great was the demand for places to park cars of visiting parties that Shortly after noon Brig. Den. Dion Williams, commanding general of the force, ordered a field which had been tssigned to a unit of the marine artillery to be turned over to the pub lic as an official parking sp&ce, and one time more than 2.200 cars were Counted within this space, bearing licenses from nearly every State In the I'nion. In all it is estimated that bi the neighborhood of 50,000 guests visited the camp during the day. War Equipment on View, In preparation for the throng of guests Gen. Williams had issued Orders that a sample of every weapon* and type of implement of war in the equipment of the sea soldiers be pre pared for the inspection of the crowd and that a corps of well educated of ferers and men. able to explain the workings of each be designated as guides and exhibitors. This feature proved extremely popular with the visitors and knots of spectators re gained grouped around each exhibit all through the day, necessitating frequent reliefs of the officers and i Dien doing the explaining. Included 1 In the exhibits were French 755, with which the light artillery arm Cff the marine force Is equipped; huge |sss. throwing 100-pound shells, Which supply the heavy artillery; trench mortars, light and heavy ma th ine guns, automatic rifles, hand and j title grenades, anti-aircraft cannon and machine guns, searchlights, tanks, engineer equipment and air planes of ail types, ranging from huge Martin bombers, capable of car tying more than a ton of high ex plosives, to tiny fust fighting ma chines with a speed of more than a hundred miles. ; Military Tartlcs Explained. - Talks on tactics were also given explanations made of the train pig and preparations which go to piake the marine expeditionary force the most efficient military organiza- Oon maintained by any nation of the World during times of peace, capable of putting a fully-equipped reinforced brigade with all arms of the service •Jn the firing line or on board a trans port ready so start for the scene of Action within twelve hours. Talks llso were given on the training of sjbldiers and attention drawn to the wise with which the marine force makes marches of the greatest length. Tfhus far on the present maneuvers Che force has averaged nearly fifteen miles a day. while ten miles is con sidered a good distance for a force of thi s size and character of equip ment.
