Uncle Sam Will Have 19,000 New Officers Under plans completed by the war department for disposition of the grad uates of the second series of officers’ training camps which close this month, every man of the 1,000 who is recom mended for a commission either will be commissioned at once or placed on an eligible list subject to call. Not all of the men commissioned when the camps close will be called to service immediately. Tn fact it yas pointed out that many of them, par ticularly the lieutenants, might not be called to active service until the sec ond 500,000 men of the national army are organized. Officers in charge of the camps are selecting 1,000 men between 21 and 27 years of age for commissions as pro visional second lieutenants in the regu lar army. They will be attached to regular regiments for additional train ing and will be given provisional com missions as vacancies occur, the com missions to be confirmed if they make good in active service. After selecting the 1.000 men, the men remaining will be considered so rthe signal corps and ordnance bureaus. Virtually all of the majors and many of the captains of the line commission ed when the camps close will be needed immediately. There are indications of a shortage of reserves in this grade, which may make it necessary to re open the army to civilians generally if officers casualties prove as heavy as is to be expected. AMBULANCE TEAM WANTS FOOTBALL GAMES The ambulance train is being kept busy, with their new auto ambulances. Record runs are being made on emergency calls to all parts of the divisions. This is get ting down to real work and is much, more enjoyed by the men than the usual song of the non-coms, namely, -‘‘HeP: Hep, Hep.” Hallowe'en was fittingly' celebrated by 111 and 112. The vaudeville given by the men of 111 was very good, but not as good as the wind-up which consisted of pumpkin pie, cider, apples and nuts. No. 112 had their hall decorated by hanging fine boughes, intermingled with oak boughs tied with the regular Hal lowe'en colors. Maj. and Mrs. Harting and Chaplain and Mrs. Keith were the guests of honor. Each responded to a request for a short talk and were received most heartily. The football team of No. 112 is having difficulty in getting first-class opponents. They are defeating Hancock teams by large margins. Two games already play ed against Co. M, 16th Regiment and Bat tery D, 2d Artillery, have resulted in vic tries by the scores of 52 to 0 and 57 to 0. Camp Gordon will be played later in the season. No. ill also has a good team. They would like to look some games. Notify Sergt. Ming- Luttenberger. I LOVE THEE, COLUMBIA (New National Anthem) (Dedicated to the People of the U, S.) I love thee, Columbia, fair land of the west, By nature with lavish hand bounteously blest; Thy streams sparkling silver, thy plains waving gold, Thy lakes Heaven's mirrors, thy peaks towering bold; Where the palm’s sunny leaves greet the evergreen pine. And the fruits of the west and the east intertwine. O refuge from oppression, Thou home of liberty; Whose starry banner shelters Freemen, forever free! I love thee, Columbia, for patriots died To wrest thee from tyrants that justice denied. Thy sons bled to save, from disruption and shame. Thy banner .of stars and thy glory and fame, That, still, from thy shores there may ; ring o’er the sea i The watchword of freedom, the song of the free- * Chorus, j I love thee, Columbia. Tn progress and toil. In love for thee rival the sons of thy soil; From the Lakes to the Gulf, from At lantic’s wild roar To . majestje Pacific's gold-glistening shore—- Were a foe thee to threaten, thy name to despise, Thy sons in invincible ranks would arise. 1 love thee, Columbia, and, true e’er to ' thee, I’ll strive for thy glory, O land of the free. May “Justice to all,” be thy motto so’ brave, “Where none shall be master, and none shall be slave”— A Nation united, as one we will stand; Our hearts pledged to thee, our dear na tive land. Chorus. My own, loved country, O set thou the goal! Throughout all the world spread the reign ' of thy soul! O guide thou the nations, and bear thou I the light To mankind still suffering in bondage and night— That freedom and peace, with the blessing divine, Prevail o’er the earth and the glory be ; thine!

Sad Death of Lieut. W arren’s Boy While Edward, the 3-year-old son oi Lieut, and Mrs. R. M. Warren, of Phil adelphia, was amusing himself in the store of L. Sylvester & Sons, Augusta, the little lad entered the elevator and turned the lever, sending the carriage up. When the third floor was reach ed, the lad attempted to get out and was caught between the floor and the elevator, his head being crushed. i Lieut, and Mrs. Warren were in the rear of the store, making -a purchase at the time and were horrified when they learned of the terrible accident. Had the child remained in the car, it would have automatically stopped. The body was taken to Philadelphia for burial. Lieut. Warren was an officer of Compony C, 109th Infantry, and Mrs. Warren and son had been boarding on the Hill. The sympathy of the Au gusta. people as well as all the soldiers in Camp Hancock is extended to the bereaved parents. ( FRENCH OFFICERS HERE Captain Carl W.
