ij He is a ion of Congreiiman Harry c.
Toodyard, and has boon comnliilonM
ed a flrit lieutenant in the army, and
rahas been temporarily assigned to the
H small arms department of the ordnwiance
department, where be will serve
gghls vovitiate. What assignments may
SHotae later, he, of course, doesn't know.
reVBut Ms commission is such that he
limay; be sent to any station his superSpars
may designate, at home or abroad.
It is to be said to the credit and
R#$atrlotlsm of Lientenant Woodyard
[ that he is not obligated to his influI
"ential father in any way for his comp
mission, and the elder Woodyard is
as proud, if not mors so, of that fact
f'l SS hie son Is. It was a step which,
| It may be said, that the young man
f .took on his own initiative, and successfully
worked it out without finding
gp|F-necessary to bother his paternal
l&garent with it And his commission
^ - " .
11b the culmination or several munuis
a of hard, keen work upon his part, In
<'& which his own knowledge of the workings
of the governmental machinery,
and his acquaintance with a number of
amy officials, gained from long resi%
dence here, worked to bring about his
|f-atBbltlon to do his bit.
fe* CoL W. C. Langfltt, who Is organlzK
. lng one of the nine regiments of army
^/engineers to be sent as soon as they
can be to France, is a native of West
I? .'.Virginian, his paternal home being in
the vicinity of Wellsburg, W. Va. He
Is an engineer of recognized and proven
ability, and holds a high place In
the esteem of officials In that lmport\
ant branch of the service.
. When Secretary of War Baker told
, a visiting West Virginia delegation
that there are to be two camps for
' the Ohio and West Virginia rookies,
.! he not only told them something new,
Pj - but It was news for everybody. It
./" served to revive a hope In the hearts
Of the West Virginia boosters for a
% camp site In their state, which the of'
tidal announcement of the designa:
tion of ChllUcothe, 0., had all bnt
killed off. Now they think West Vfrj
ginia has. a chance, and a good one;
and the Martlnsburg contingent firmly
they believe that they have the Inside
track, because they just as plainly
believe that the Secretary of War,
who was born and grew up In that
town, favors the location of the camp
J there. The hope that the other West '
- Virginians have, those who am for
other sites as against Martlnsburg, is
that Martinshnrg will not bo rocom'
mended hy the army officers. It isn't
a very strong hope, since they know
how Secretary1. Baker feels toward
rMartlnsburg, but it is a hope, just
the same. And pending the final decision
that, they consider, is vorth
:. something In a spirited contest such
, . as has been on between a dozen or
more places In West Virginia for this
fnpposed boon of being chosen as a
cantonment site. The statement of the
|p; ' Secretary, too, tnawif^ouTcRBnF

to change their recommendatkms,

his own home town, Congressman Bowers
has Elklns' persistent and meritorous
claims to reflect upon. Heed and
Llttlepage thank the gods that they
have but one ambitious community
each to serve in this matter. The en
tire delegation will heave up great
sighs of relief when the fatal decree
settling this contention la handed
down by the War department, and will
rejoice the farther behind them the
ticklish affair Is put by passing time.
Until then, they will never be quite
happy again.
Congressman Stuart F. Reed has
recommended the following named persons
