The question of marching to Van
c.jurer barracks, Washington, was un
dsr discussion in Uie band quarters.
*t Fort Sherman, Idaho, and
Charlie Rapp, the snare drummer, was
boasting of his ability as a marcher.
The drum major, Buckley, offered to
give him 95 if he would march to Poet
Falls and return in heavy marchii g
order, regulation pack, iu seven hours.
"I'll go you," said Rapp. Donovan
agreed to increase the amount to 910 if
Rapp performed ths feat At 10 a. m.
Sunday morning Charlie started for
Post Falls with Donovan and Buckley in
the rear, mounted to see that he walked
every foot of the way. In just four
hours and fifteen minutes he was bark
at the band quarters, but little worse
for the trip. The roads were muddy
and it rained the greater part of the
time he was marching.
David Grace, of G company thought
he could beat Rapp's time and ou Tues
day for a w ager of 920 he lowered the
record, making the trip in four hours
and tsrenty minutes with a rest of
thirty minute*, making the actual time
consumed in walking, three hours and
fifty minuter. The equipment carried
weighs about thirty pounds.
