IS.—"The j Lightning Division” —this is the new I name the boys ot the Seventy-ninth Division bring home from France. I They disclaim the name of ‘Libetty j Division” and say it never was be j stowed upon them officially; while | "Lightning,” as a title, was bestowed upon them by general officers in France and by The Stars and Stripes, a newspaper published in Paris oy ! the American Expeditionary Forces These statements are made by a number of boys of the Seventy-ninth who have returned to Meade as cas uals and are stationed with the con valescent companies in N block. Sev leral of the wounded, who are in the j Base Hospital, corroborate the state j ments. However, no action can be j taken by the boys to have their divi- I sipu recognized tts the "Lightning j Division,” they claim, as very little of it now is intact, except a small part which it is believed is in the Army of Occupation now in Ger many. The soldiers claim the Stars and Stripes cited their division as being the "Thunderbolts from the Western Hemisphere,” and because of their action about Monlfaucon the name "Lightning” was given them and recognized by general officers. Enlisted men who wish to stay in the army for limited periods, because they are un,prepared to go back to civil life, but who are connected with units about to be mustered out, may remain in the army for definite lengths of time, upon application, and will be transferred to other units and assigned to miscellaneous duties, according to orders issued to day by Brig.-Gen. J. A. Gaston. Brig.-Gen. Gaston is still camp ex ecutive officer under General Carter, though Lieut.-Col. Bugbee, named as successor to Gen. Gaston, has arriv ed at camp. He will take over Gen. Gaston’s duties in a few days, it is understood. However, no word has reached camp as to the next assign ment of Gen. Gaston. This, together with the fact reveal ed today that Lieut.-Col. Eby, for merly chief of staff here, has been transferred to Washington to attend the War College, has perplexed all at camp as to who will be transferred next. On the heels of peace another war has sprung up in Camp Meade. It is between the Knights of Columbus and various officers having command of labor battalions. The Knights of Columbus claim they are the only organization in Camp Meade who are not allowed a "fatigue detail” by the camp rulers. "Fatigue detail” is a body of soldiers from one of the la bor battalions or other organizations sent under orders to do the chores about the buildings of the Young Men’s Christian Association and the Red Cross. The Knights cf Columbus daily as sign their own secretaries to scrub bing the floors, washing windows and the thousand and one oth< i iluP>w about the buildings in the absence ,of “fatigue details.” The “fatigue detail” donated to the Young Men’s Christian Association by camp au thorities generally consists of three or four negro soldiers fit especially for such work. The Knights of Co lumbus often has made requests fer these details at headquarters, they claim, but have been turned down, wTiile all other organizations have been shown the favor. o Frank H. Wheeler Frank H. Wheeler, beloved hus band of Margaret (nee Siems) Wheel er, and son of Joseph R. and Dora J. Wheeler, died at 263 East Hamburg street. Baltimore, Wednesday, Janu ary loth. The funeral services will be held from his late home, 2745 Tivoli ave nue, tomorrow, Saturday, afternoon, at 2.30 o’clock. Interment will be in Loudon Park cemetery. o “Bone-Dry” Law Upheld (From the New York World.) As the record stood two years ago 14 States which had prohibited the manufacture and sale of intoxicants within their borders allowed the im portation of such beverages “for per sonal use.” By an amendment to the postofflee appropriation bill proposed by Senator Reed, of Missouri, and adopted by Congress and approved by the President in February, 1917, all such shipments were made unlawful. Many so-called prohibitionists in Congress were staggered by this prop osition and refused to vote for It. Some people asserted that it had been advanced in behalf of the liquor in terest to make prohibition odious. It was openly charged that the big brewers had advocated the policy.be lieving that an act so far-reaching would check the wave of prohibition i sweeping over the country. ' Whatever the motive of Senatoi j Reed may have been, the amendment i bearing his name has now been pro • nounced constitutional by the United States Supreme Court, only two jus tices dissenting. A citizen of West | Virginia purchased in an adjoining I State a quart of whisky for personal I use, as was his right under the laws lof his own State. The Reed amend- I men, supported by the judgment ol ithe Supreme Court of the Unitec ? States, makes him a culprit. S In this fashion we are foreshadow J ing the persecutions and prosecution! | that are soon to become the order ol the day from one coast to the othei | of a republic once boasting of hom< | rule and personal liberty. j o Schools Remain Closed. The public schools of Cambiidg< will remain closed until further no tice.—James B.
