146th Artillery Greeted at New York by Gov
ernor and Other ldahoans~Bear Lake Boys
Will be Home Next Week.
After spending six months at in
tensive training in Trance, four
months in active service on the front
and nearly six months in Germany as
part of the army of occupation, the
famous 66th artillery brigade, com
posed of the 146th and 148th field
artillery regiments, is again back
to "the land of the free and borne
v of the brave." The regiments
V arrived at New York last Saturday
and Sunday.
The 146th is composed largely of
Idaho boys, Battery B being made up
fo Nampa and Montpelier boys. A
New York dispatch states that the
Idaho delegation, headed by Gov
ernor Davis, was accorded unusual
courtesy by being permitted to meet
and fraternize with troops debark
ing. After waiting two days for the
arrivel of the U. S. transport Peer
less, on which the 146th field ar
tillery returned, the delegation met
the Peerless at the quarantine station
and followed the ship. In papers
and gifts thrown aboard the vessel
to the men greetings were ex
changed. On the piers the gover
nor's pjrty mingled with the Ida
ho troops.
No happier troops have arrived
than the famous 146th, part of which
field artillery brigrade spent a
longer time on the front than any
other troops. They were at the front
» from July T, 1918, until the signing
' of the armistice.
"There are no better Aen in the
world, nor any better soldiers, than
these Idaho lads," s^td the com
mander, Col. P. H. Weyrauch of
Walla Walla.
"There are no prouder men," re
plied a Boise lad. "Our governor
and people are here to greet us."
Tuesday, June 17th, marked the
90th anniversary of the birth of Mrs.
Susie Henrie of this city, and the
event was celebrated in a befitting
manner by a Sumptuous dinner,
which was prepared by her daugh
ters, Mrs, R. A. Birch of this city,
and Mrs. Matilda Pitkin, who came
up from Millville, Utah, for the oc
casion. In spite of her advanced age,
M^s. Henrie is hale and hearty, wnd
gets about the house as spry as many
ladies who are 20 years younger. She
says that she expects to live to cele
brate her 100th birthday.
James A. McCulloch, Jr., 20 years
old, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Mc
Culloch of Ogden, was drowned in
Bear Lake last Friday afternoon,
while bathing at Ideal Beach. He
and three other musicians were row
ing and swimming. The boat either
over turned or McCulloch made a
dive from the boat after being over
heated by rowing. The lad was a
good swimmer and it is probable
that either an attack of heart failure
or cramps was the cause of bis in
ability to save himself.
The young marf was well known in
Ogden and Logan. During the past
year he attended the agricultural col
lege at Logan, and while still a 1
Kreshman he was given the uuprec
edented honor of being elected yell
While attending the Stud- I

A large per cent of men In the
146th saw duty as Idaho National
Guardsmen on the Mexican border
during the summer and fall of 1916.
After having been disbanded about
six weeks, they were quickly reas
sembled for service overseas, and
with the Wyoming contingent
trained at Camp Mills, Long Island.
It was on Chir8tmas eve, 1917, that
the Idaho and Wyoming men left]
for France on the Lapland. The
transport first went to Halifax to
pick up some Canadian troops, and
then proceeded to Bordeaux.
The westerners were given their
preliminary artillery training at
Camp De Souge and broke into the
use of the French 76s. When the ,
155MM guns were brought out the;
Idaho and Wyoming men were
trained with these guns and mnde
into a heavy artillery brigrade.
They saw their first active service
in the second Chateau Thierry of
fensive on July 7, after which they
were made Into a corps artillery ^nd

booze and men were loaded into a
car al »d brought to Montpelier. The
men were left In the city Jail and
the forbidden fluid was added to the:
sheriff's rapidly increasing stock in
the basement of the court house. •
The Austrians were evidently not]*"''®
satisfied with their quarters In the ,
city Jail for they took "French ;
leave" of the place some time Tues- j
night. They made their escape by :
tearing away the brick in the east 1
wall until they had a hole large
enough for them to crawl out. This ;
was done with two pieces of Iron
1 which they either smuggled into the ,
Jail or were thoughtlessly left there
by the officers.
I There were 69 empty whiskey
cases in the willows at the point
, where the men were arrested. The j
supposition is that the whiskey was
brought to the siding near that point, !
on a freight train and all hut the six
cases trad been divided up among the j
parties interested, and the two Aus- i
trians were left to set their uh.re
