The academics were in the lead, next was the class of 1901S. and followed by the classes of the law and medical departments. Then came the members of the alumni. The procession was headed by herlff Dunham. As the class . was forming the Second regiment band played "On ward Christian Soldier," and then took its place at the head of the line, ren dering the "Portuguese Hymn" as the march was taken from the campus. Preceding the older graduates was General Noble of St. Louis, and Rev. Dr. Munger of this city. It was a lit tle past 10 o'clock when the line start ed. The route was out of the Phelps gateway, across the upper gre?n to Cen ter church, thence up the diagonal pathway to the corner of College and Chapel streets, along College street to and through the Phelps gateway, and thence to the Battell chapel. . Several young lady graduates were in the pro cession. Following was the programme at Battell chapel: Overture "Die Meisterslnger von Neurnberg Wagner Prayer. Psalm 65.

The military information division of Adjutant-General Corbln's office has published the reports of Captain Ste phen L'Hommedieu Slocum, 8th Infan try, now United States military at tache at St. Petersburg, who accom panied the British headquarters In the Transvaal campaign. The threa re ports of his observations made at dif ferent periods of the war by Captain Slocum have been carefully edited to avoid giving offence to- the British au thorities, but even with the omission of the sharp criticisms he made on Lord Roberts and his campaign, the. docu ment is interesting, showing as It docs the frequent violation of flags of truce and Hie use of explosive bullets by the Boers and the weaknesses of the Brit ish system. The most important parts of Captain SJocum's repurt are given In the New York Tribune as follows: The march northward from the line Bloemfonteln, Thaba-Nchu, Fourteen Streams was most admirably planned and conducted. The front of this ad vance was seme two hundred miles in breath, extending to Bethlehem, and had even a portion of the Natal field force entered the Free State through the almost unguarded passes and op- rated in conjunction with Lord Rob erts' army from Bethlehem North, tha result would have been d clsive and conclusive. The area over which the British forces were compelled to oper ate was enormous end almost devoid of supplies of any kind. The area of the Orange Free State Is some fifty thousand square miles, and that of the South African republic some one hun dred and fourteen thousand.' Of such a total area vi army such as was available to Lord Lob;rts, of less than one hundred thousand men, could only posslb'y cover a small portion. The railway line over which fi.ll the sup plies of every kind and description must come to the ilialn army was nar row, single-tracked and badly con structed, and there was an inadequate structed, is the best in the world to meet successfully the new conditions of war. That dismounted fire action for cavalry is a necessary component of its success. I do not think there is a doubt, and our cavalry Is the only one in the world thoroughly drilled and in structed In It. From conversation with the eight other attaches representing all the large powers of the world, I was especially struck with the fact of how little serious attention has been given to this matter In the cavalry of other countries. My experience has convinc ed me that the day of large cavalry bodies meeting in a melee Is past, and that cavalry using a long distance car bine,, with bullet not under .35-calibre, and instructed as ours is quickly to dismount and use It, will defeat any opposing horseman trying to get home with sabre or lance.' I would lay spe clal stress on the larger calibre, for the .303 non-explosive will not stop a horse. I have seen horse3 shot, right through the neck or body by the small bullet go ell the afternoon with their riders, and be entirely fit In three or four days. In my opinion, the bullet Is too mere! ful which permits of a. large percentage of those wounded by it to return to the front within a few weeks, as the Mauser .27 and Lee Metford .303 did in this war. The clip system of tha Maus er rifle is, I think, an excellent one Not only are the cartridges loaded into the magazine much more quickly than without it, but the clip holds the cart ridges in the belt and prevents their being lost. The belt worn by the Boers generally had twelve pockets, with a flap coming down over it and fastened to a. stud. The bottom of the pocket or pouch was perforated with live holes. The clip with the five cartridges in it was put horizontally into the pouch, the ends of the cart ridge protruding through the holes at the bottom, and the flap fastened down; the cartridges were then secure and could also be withdrawn quickly from the pouch. The action of the Lee Metford Is like ours in respect to the loading, each cartridge being separate ly Inserted. The infantry carried their cartridges loose in two pouches In front on each side of the belt plate, the effect of which was bad In two ways; the man could not He prone, and was con stantly losing his cartridges. Our cav alry, combining as it does the essential advantage of both mounted infantry and cavalry,- renders unnecessary the two distinct branches, but it should j have a gun filing a larger bullet. Our regiments, I believe, are two large, un less one squadron Is habitually kept as a depot one and not consolidated with the others In the Held. The two squad rons of eight hundred men In action are the maximum number of mounted men that can possibly be even generally controlled by one man. The moment after the deployment begins Into open order and everything must be in this formation now the colonel's control is gone, and the success of the movement depends wholly upon the commanders of small units; even the squadron com manders must let go the rein and trust to the captains. Such a thing as man oeuvring as a regiment is impossible; it will be squadrons only, and .the colo nel's orders will consist of simply di recting, by messengers or signals, squadron commanders to do so and so. The same applies, of course, to the infantry, though in a less degree, and It Is Just for this reason that I believe our men, with their distinctive Individ uality and ability to think and take care cf themselves, to he the best sol diers in the world.

The in fantry had done spendklly always but the reluctr.nc? of the s.'ldier to in trench himself and the indifference of the officers to enforce this mo?t neces sary and vital precaution were strik ingly shown upon all occasions. Th?y would pile up a little parapet of stones, visible for a long distance, and conse quently a target for the enemy's guns and a source of death In itself when struck by ft. shell, but they would rare ly ever dig a trench. I never could un derstand this serious fault. The Boers intrenched at every op portunity and were Invisible, but their enemy was always "in evidence." The disregard of the British officer and sol dier of all corns of ordinary precau tions for his own safely Is astonishing. The Infantry never make rushes in their atto.ck, but march -erect and oarrnly forward. I have seen mounted men under a hot, rifle fire at short range halted, waiting fur orders to advance, sitting erect on their horses, a perfect target, while, by lying over on their horses' necks, they would have had some protection, as I had. Thoy have not the Individuality and res'urcs of our men, but for Indomitable courage, uncomplaining fortitude and Implicit obedience they are beyond criticism. The majority of the British officers look upon thlr army service as a mere incident in their lives, shortly to be given up for the delights of country and town life. Few of thorn look upon it seriously as a career, and conse quently fail to make themselves pro ficient in those innumerable details noreswy for a professional soldier to know, and rely too much far too much on the non-commissioned officers to assume tnose duties wnicn rigntiy ana properly they themselves should per form. The soldier sees too little of his officer, and consequently in critical ber. Andrews, B. A.

NEED OF HARMONY IN ACTION. There must be a general harmony of movement; the controlling Idea must be followed by all, and Individuals must not consider the expediency of the same, ns undisciplined and undrllled men will always do. Discipline Is more necessary now than ever before, when the soldier Is left to act so much for himself. The British Infantry officers in the middle and latter part of the war never carried a sword, but all carried rifles, and every distinctive badge of an officer (except the llttle'go'd ones of their rank on their shoulders, and even these were generally colored khaki) was removed. This accounts for the decrense in what was the unusually large percentage of casualties among the officers In the beginning of the war. The difficulties of mounted men in re connoitring are largely Increased un der modern conditions. The enemy will be usually invisible over two thousand yards, and the cavalryman must come within rifle range before he can discov er anything, and even then, when fired upon, he cannot tell whether by a few men using their magazines or many men firing deliberately. In any event, he must ride into the zone of death before ascertaining whether the ground is held by the enemy or not, and cannot report with any accuracy how many of them are holding It. I have often seen what proved to be afterward a mere handful of men compel a divi sion to halt, deploy and advance, as though against a large force. Another of the many difficulties arising from the new conditions of war Is the handling of supports and re- following scheme to prevent the flash of his guns being seen by the enemy: He fixed blankets In front of his guns and fired through them. As he stated, "It played blazes with the blankets, but they never could find the guns." In reviewing the campaign ever since the British entered the Orange Free State, it is extraordinary how little the Boers accomplished against them, whereas, being all mounted and opera ting in their own country, they could have done so much in making Lord Roberts' advance uncertain and even hazardous. They may in the future split up Into small raiding parties and adopt a guerilla mode of warfare. If they do this, it may be months before the war Is actually at an end. In the British army during war there exists what is called "local rank." An officer, no matter what his actual rank may be, may be given by the commander-in-chief a higher rank, which carries' with it the command and emoluments of that rank. This rank is temporary, and holds good only In that army commanded at the time by the commander-in-chief w-ho grants it, but must be confirmed by the secretary of state for war. It enables, the com mander to salect his men for important commands. As an Illustration I will cite one case of many. R. G. Broad wood, a junior major in the Twelfth Lancers, was appointed a local brigadier-general and given command of the Third Cavalry brigade, of which his own regiment, under its colonel, formed a part. BOERS USED EXPLOSIVE BUL LETS. Explosive bullets were in many cases used by the Boers. I have seen a large number in the belts of the captured and wounded. I attach one to this re port, taken by me from a Boer belt at Pretoria. There wee some twenty oth ers like in in the same belt. It will be noticed that it not only has the lead core exposed, but the sides of the bul let are also split. The balloon which was with Lord Roberts' forces g-ave most valuable as sistance in locating the enemy and guns'. It vas always more or less un der Are, but seldom compelled to de scend on that account. The engineer officer who made all the ascents in formed me that even if hit in the top by shrapnel the balloon would descend only gradually. The real value of armored trains is problematical.
