Interest Facts About Camp Pike, Arkansas. Little Rock, Ark. Nov. 8, No matter how rocky may be the road to Berlin, the truck driver trained at Camp Pike is going to get there. Intensive training is the theme at Camp Pike, and no matter what department t he man ism, he is going to get It* . j Camp Pike is seven miles from Little Rock. The Camp Site was formerly farms and rolling timber land. There was a very respectable community road,with a turn* rock founda tion, leading by the site when it was selected, hat it took the army trucks only a few weeks to cut this into shreds. All sup. plies had to be earned over this road until the railroad was com. pleted in the remarkable time of three .weeks The Government, state find county then decided to fix this road so that it would stand any amount of traffic and a contract was let for an asphalt pavement. As the travel to the cantonment was so heavy, only portions-of the road could be closed at a time, tiie vehicles being turned out into the fields, rocky hill sides and mushy places that soon developed nits more than hub deep. Ordinarily such roads would have had a retarding influence on transportation to the camp, biv the condition was the thing The commissary department looked for. The roads in France Russia, Italy, and other fronts are noted in dispatches for their almost absolute impassibility. These officers knew that drivers of trucks would be helpless if they had no experience with torftble roads before going across. If there is a- truck driver in the camp who cannot shut his eys and follow any kind of a road lie lias not been an apt pupil, or any kind of a pupu at all. The officers required the drivers to use these byways long after the pike road had been completed, to drive across it in loaded trucks, and without a load anti certain time was given for the journey. No, roads will not interfere with the Camp Pike driver when he gets into the b g gams. Uncle Sam believes m having a goon pattern when he has a replica "to make. Tilts holds good with ins organization as in everything else. There are many phases to the militia as to other departments of Govern ment, and now they are the all important. Of course we must have an army that will make the world safe for Demon racy, but transportation, as well as transportation supplies, is one of the momentous questions, also one of the stupendous. There is. a vast army to be trained tor the transportation ol supplies, and Uncle Sam has in the past worked out details for this which now stand far above those of other armies. It did not lake the European war to do this. The Mexican fiasco was sufficient to pave the way for one of the best organizations in the way ol wagon trains the world has ever known, , The Mexican invasion made possible Wagon Train No. 3 of the United States Army, It also gave a bit of glory to Wagon Co-operative Shipments Bringing Good Prices* Through the efforts of county ageni Mr. Horace Cunningham, the farmers of Oktibbeha county have been disposing ot their produce, cattle and hogs at good market, prices, hast Friday he received seventy loads of corn, and on Saturday a farmer brought to town a wagon load of turnips which a merchant bought and sold to an advantage in a few hours, A car load ot hogs were shipped and one of the hogs which weighed 570 lbs. brought $82.50, The twentieth shipment ot cattle to the St. Lome market went through Tuesday, and also a car load af sorghum was ship ped through Cox Bros. An innovation in the shape of a minstrel troupe formed by members of the A. & M. Y. M, C. A., will accompany Mr. Cun ningham on his lour through the county, when he will show to the farmers in different sections with the aid of illustrations on a screen, diversilication in all its phases and also the various kinds of lives lock. This will be a good lesson showing whai can be done along agricultural lines. Reports from over the countv arc that fanners are sowing more wheat tins fall than -ever before and some of the wheat is up and looking line. Tram No. 4 oi the same lighting unit, but it is No. 8 that is known the world over, wherever army transportation has been discussed it was No, 8 that went to Vera Crus with Funston. It was No. 3 that went into Mexico with Pershing. It was No. 3 that- was ordered to Camp Pike to instruct he other wagon trains which are being recruited there. Hut the personnel of Wagon Train No. 3 to-day is different from that of No. 3 that went twice into Mexico. When sent across the border No. 3 was a unit of 27 wagons, under a lieu tenant. When the United Stales army was remodeled, it was de cided to make a wagon train con sist of 91 wagons, and place a captain over them. To do this, Wagon Train No, 4 became a pari of No. 3 and both veteran organizations came to Camp Pike as No. B Funny things about these boys too. They never speak of their into the sandhills of the land of greasers. They glory in their talk of trips made across arid lauds of the Southwest, but you would never know they were the heroes of the Mexican campaign unless the question was directly asked. Such is the teacher of the wagon train companies Camp Pike, or was the teacher, lor Wagon Train Fo. 3 under a oom raand ol Capt. Phillips, has done enough to keep w ago peers hust ling at Camp Pike and passed on to Louisville, Ky. to continue the good work there, leaving behind a record of loading 400 army mules in 48 minutes. After six* ty days in Louisville it will probably be shifted again, and every man in the Company, from Sgt, Charles -Grabe, down to Rod Head, the farrier, hopes the next move will be into action. This company has a cook* one ot the negroes who was rescued rescued in Mexico, reaching the America# forces after every shrod of his clothing had been stripped from him. f Fiddlers Contest to be Held j at Public School Nov. 29th.
