Alfriend, who was presented with an engraved watch fob by the Scouts, writes acknowledg? ing the gift as follows: Camp McClellau, Ala., Oct. 4, 11H7. Dear Scoutmaster and Fellow Scouts: Your beautiful present came this morning, and made mo feel mighty good. I knew all along that you would not for? get me, and now 1 have some? thing constantly in sight to re? mind me of the good times spent together, and firm friendship formed with as line bunch of S'jouts as can be fdund in the igood idd 1'. S. A. I'm proud of that watch fob, let me tell you! Many thanks, fellows, and be assured I shall treasure it as one of my most cherished pos? sessions. I wish Mr. Tyler nnd the whole troop of you could pay me a visit ami let me show you arouod our mamtnoutli camp. You would see some sure enough training. No loafing here. The old Scout motto "He Prepared" means something here, you can bet. Ktght hours of intensive training every day OXCept Wednesday and Satur fday afternoons. And the etil Cera haven't even that much holiday. When they're not drill? ing, they are "going to school," Officers'School of Instruction When Kaiser Hill's trained troops come in contact with Uncle Sam's boys, there will be some fur dying and 1 think it will be Gorman fur. This is only one of thirty two cantonments in the United States, and each will have about fifty thousand troops. Some army! It takes about a day for fifty thousand troops to pass in review. So it would take the great American army over a month to pass you if you cared to stand on a street cor? ner that long and watch the boys go by. I could write a lot of interest ing things if I only had time, but I haven't. I have more jobs than anyone else in the Army. Postmaster of the regi? ment, officer in charge of the statistical department, mana? ger of tho officers' mess, en? trusted with tho amusement features in tho regiment, in? structor of illiterate soldiers, visitor at the field and base hos? pitals, conduct regimental re? ligious services, and iuivo to koop up my regular military duties at tho same time. I have four clerks, three cooks and two orderlies working for me. So you see I haven't very much spare timu. However, I'm go? ing to try and scribble a few linos every once in a while to the Hoy Scouts of Hig Stone Gap. So let me wish you every suc? cess in Scouting, and request a loiter now and then from some of you. So good night and good luck. Your friend, Lieut. W. J. Alfriend, 1st Va. Inf. Bruce P. Tyler, Scoutmaster, who haB been in Philadelphia, due to tho death of his sieter, has returned. S. P. Hall, Assistant Princi? pal of the public school, will be associated with the scout work hereafter, acting as assistant RcoutmuBter. Tho great British navy is somewhere, doing something, hut the Lord only known whore t is or what it is doing.
