Meade, Md. t he also wakes up a 29-piece band with a music library larger than that of municipal bands organized in cities of over 100,000 population. The band, with its amateur and several professional musicians, is probably the best to ever represent the 115th Infantry, formerly the First Regiment of the Maryland National Guard. In any case, the organization has more music to play than, any oth er 115th Regiment band ever had. Not only are there plenty of march-; es but there are concert numbers and dance selections as well. In fact, an eleven-piece dance orchestra has been formed among the members of the ofganization to furnish music for so cial functions still in the formative stages. Ranging from the Original Dixie Land Jazz Band’s “Tiger Rag” to the “Finale” of Tschaikowsky’s “F Minor Symphony, No. 4,” the complete lib rary contains 675 different selections. As befits a military band, 300 of * the selections are marches, many of them written by world-famous march , . composers, John Philip Sousa, Ed- mund Franko Goldman, W. Paris ] Chambers, Frank Frank and R. B. Hall. Available for use on the music lyres so that concert formation is not j necessary are 120 popular and classi cal selections that include the “Bar carole” and the “Intermezzo from j Cavellero RuStxcana,” by Verdi. The 205 concert numbers include such j standard waltz numbers as “The Blue ( Danube,” by Johann Strauss, and ( best-known overtures such as “Tann- ( hauser,” Wagner, and Listzt’s “Hun garian Rhapsody.” The fifty selec- ( tions that make up the dance band j library are all the latest hit tunes ( with, of course, some of the old stand bys, like Hoagy Carmichael’s “Star , Dust.” i Administrative and supply affairs of the Band section, whose home sta-j tion is at Frederick, Md., are handled by Lieut. Thomas F. Murphy, Laurel, Md., commanding officer of Head- j quarters Company, while training of the personnel of the organization is supervised by Capt. G. William Trout, Frederick, Md., adjutant of the 115th' Infantry. Director of the Band is Warrant Officer William O. Fisher, also of Frederick. Although the ’ band provides the music for the entire regiment and ex pects to play for numerous concerts in the spring and summer, its mem bers must also have a general knowl edge of the complete basic military course—all phases of drill and firing and nomenclature of both pistol and rifle. Four of every eight hours of training for the band is devoted to drill. No longer does the band have the softest job in the regiment—the band’s course of training is just as intensive as any rifle company’s.

NEW FORT TO BE BUILT AT KIPTOPEAKE, VIRGINIA Engineers of the war department working at Fort Kiptopeake, the pro posed site for a new fort to be arm ed with 10-inch guns are now making soil tests and doing more surveying. Official information concerning the work being carried on there at pres ent is lacking, but it would indicate, that the soil testing is to determine I the amount of shock the soil can stand from the recoil of the big guns, thereby determining the type of em placements for them. All of this seems to point to an early start on actual construction of the fort. Rumor has had it begin ning at all sorts of dates for a num ber of months past, but we are of the opinion that work will actually start within another thirty days. The additional surveying indicates that more land is to be bought or condemned, just how much the war department declines to announce. No contracts have as yet been let for any phase of the work, but it is believed that the first ones will be sent out very soon. Because this work had been plan ned before the present war scare de veloped it is not believed that any great influx of men will be needed for some months; and it is not thought that a large enough force to cause a housing shortage in the coun ty will be put to work at one time. The work will probably be stretch ed over a period of many months, with local labor being used, insofar as their ability and availability will allow it.
