79TH CLAIMS NEW THU
.Men Back at Meade Say They Ait
I The “Lightning Division”—So Roc
omlzed in France.
i Camp Meade. Md. t Jan. 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
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
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
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.

“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.
