Camp Cavalcade
figures in a cavalcade
of American history—such as the
men behind the names of the great
armv cantonments scattered all
over the United States, where young
Americans are learning to be sol
diers in order to defend their coun
try when the need arises.
If, for many years, Uncle Sam's
soldiers have been the best cared-
for of any in the
world, much of
the credit for that
fact belongs to
the man for
whom Camp Hol
abird, near Bal
timore, Md., is
named. Samuel
B. Holabird, a na
tive of Connecti
cut, was graduat
ed from West
Point in 1849 and
after several
S. B. Holabird
years’ service on the frontier was
appointed captain and assistant
quartermaster soon after the out
break of the Civil war. Much of
his service during that conflict was
in Maryland and West Virginia as
chief quartermaster in various di
visions and corps of the Union army.
After the war he was chief quarter
master of the military departments
of Dakota, Texas and California and
in 1883 he was appointed quarter
master-general of the United States
army, a position which he held until
he was retired as a brigadier-gen
eral in 1890. At that time it was
said of him: “General Holabird was
ever alert to the needs of the army
and while occupying the position of
quartermaster-general he intro
duced many reforms to improve the
condition of the enlisted men, supply
ing them with comforts and conven
iences which soldiers could scarcely
have dreamed of 25 years earlier.’’
Camp Guild nearWakefield.Mass.,
is named for a journalist and sol
dier, Curtis Guild, (1860-1915) who
was born in Boston and succeeded
his father in the ownership of the
Boston Commercial Bulletin. He
was brigadier-general of the Massa
chusetts militia at the outbreak of
the Spanish-American war and aft
er being mustered into the volun
teer service was inspector-general
of the department of Havana in
Cuba. General Guild was elected
lieutenant-governor of Massachu
setts in 1902 and served two terms.
Camp Michie at Del Rio, Texas,
honors the memory of Virginia-born
Robert E. Lee Michie (1864-1918),
who was graduated from West Point
in 1885 and served in the cavalry at
various posts in the West. During
the Spanish-American war he was
adjutant-general of the department
of Havana in Cuba and served in the
Philippines in 1903-04. At the out
break of the World war he was
made a brigadier-general of the na
tional army and was commander of
the Fifty-third infantry brigade at
Camp Wadsworth, S. C.
Camp Callan, near San Diego,
Calif., bears the name of Maj. Gen.
Robert Emmet Callan, born in
Maryland in 1874 and now retired.
He saw his first active service in
the Puerto Rican campaign in 1898.
As chief of staff of the army artil
lery of the First army of the A.E.F.,
he won the D.S.M. for having “de
veloped the heavy artillery regi
ments under his command into com
bat units of remarkable efficiency
which proved to be of the utmost
value during the St. Mihiel and
Meuse-Argonne offensives.”

Service Medal for having organized
that division and commanding it
with distinction during all but 18
days of its active service at the
front from February 4 to November

National Army Spirit
“A visit to one of the canton
ments is unforgettable. The great
ness of this superb effort to raise an
army that will be truly national
floods the heart with fire and pride.
These molten pools of manhood have
been poured into the crucible. The
dross is being purged, the harden
ing metal tempered and welded. I
think it will be the finest army the
world has ever seen, because it is a
true cross section of a nation.”—
Christopher Morley, writing from
Camp Dix, October 24, 1917.

at this meeting.
Reason given for action of the
board in not offering Miss Hankish a
contract for next year was that it
would place her under the recently

Don’t Plant More Than
You Can Handle
(Continued from page 1)
for both the small and large garden
can be otained from the high school
or from any of the extension centers,
Barnes said.
In making plans of the garden it is
best to use a sheet of heavy paper
about 2 by 3 feet in size. Such a
plan is not easily lost and will last
for the season. The plan should also
include an estimate of the amount of
seed needed per 100 feet of row for
each vegetable.
If the garden is large enough to use
horse drawn cultivators, the rows
ought to be 28 inches or more apart.
If the work is all to be done by hand,
the rows can be much closer together,
it was stated by Barnes.
The garden should be so planned
that every available space is produc
ing during the entire growing season.
For evample, a thin seeding of radish
es can be made in the row of parsley
and parsnips. Squash and pumpkins
are planted with the sweet corn. As
soon as an early season crop matures
it is followed with another crop.
Thru proper planning it is possible
to grow three or even four short seas
on crops in succession on the same
field during a single season.
The present Victory Garden pro
gram will be best served if Bluffton
gardeners will concentrate on getting
the maximum production out of small
plots, using familiar and easy to raise
vegetables, rather than attempting to
raise a large variety of unfamiliar
items on a plot too large to handle,
Barnes stated.
