CO. A. WEEKLY NEWS.
The crack of the rifle will again be heard, this season on the old rifle range behind the Dr. Martin Luther College. Company A expects to put the rifle range in shape for use again after several years neglect. The Civilians Rifle Company will assist Company A in repairing the range and will share in its use. The proposed site seems to be the best one available and Capt. Max Sebald has decided to expend the $500 which Company A will have on hand if the city council makes the-customary appropriation of $250 which is equalled by the state fund of $250. It is ex pected that it will take all .-of this money to put the range into condition by grading down the high ground and rebuilding the targets, pitsj and abut ments. Two iron Aitken targets have been received from Lake City and. at the present time are stored in the Armory awaiting completion of the range. The Company basket ball team had its annual dinner at the Dakota Hpuse last night fallowed by a business meet ing and a smoker at the Armory. Private Walter H. Julius has been pro moted to,private of the first class. The following men were recommended for a course in the cook's and baker's school at Fort Riley, Kansas, for three months, Cook Wm. J. Julius, Private 1st class, Norbert F. Herzog and Private Richard Hauer. ATTENTION! An Appeal for Recruits for Com pany "A" National Guard. The following letter was received by the commanding officer, Company VA", April 6th, 1922. "Headquarters Fifth Infantry, Min nesota National Guard, Mankato, Minn., April 6, 1922. Frota: Hq. 5th Inf., M. N. G. To: Commanding Officer, Company "A", 5th Inf., M.N. G. Subject: Strength of organization. 1. It is noted in strength return submitted for the month of March 1922, that your organization shows 67 enlisted men present and absent. The required strength for this Company is 93 enlisted men. It is therefore re quested that you take immediate steps to recruit this organization up to its proper strength. Throughout the Regiment the Units are taking the month of April for Recruiting Drive, in order that we may get up to proper strength as early as possible, and have these men for a considerable period of training before they go to Camp. By order of Colonel Fulton, (Sgd.) W. A. Sanborn, Captain & Adj. 5th Inf., M. N. G." The above letter is self-explanatory to, understand the need of additional recruits for the local organization. In fact its existence depends upon main taining its membership up to the authorized peace time strength of 93 enlisted men. While considerable work has been done by member^ of the Company, in the past, in the way of securing re cruits, and while a bonus is paid them for each accepted recruit, our gains have only equalled our losses. The interest of the community has not awakened. It is a well established fact that to have an efficient organiza tion in the National Guard, it must have the hearty co-operation of the community in which the organization is located. Our organization is effi cient, but small and understrength. Unless the community is convinced that the Guard is a valuable asset and deserves a high place in its estimation, that it ranks high amongst the potent factors for the preservation of law and order, life and property in the country at large, in the state, cities and towns, that the moral effect of a well-ordered Guard Company in a community may prevent the loss of life of men, women and children to say nothing of the loss of public and private property, that it is a splendid insurance to the com- SEASONABLE GOODS FOR LENT Holland Salt Herring in bulk and in kegs.

They must have the unstinted support of the community, or fail in the attempt. They can only be instrumental in the method of maintainahce iand training. The local town idea, that a Guard Company is only a bunch of "tin soldiers" and "roisterers,'' always ready for "fun," "frolic," or a "tri£?' at somebody else's .expense has petered out. On tM contrary, there is involved to a reasonable degree, rigid training, instruction and disci pline. All cost of equipment, uni forms, arms and all that a soldier needs is defrayed.by the Federal .Govern ment. The small amount of time de manded of the men for drill &nd field training, viz. 'once a week armory drill and two weeks annually for field training, is paid for by the Federal Government. The pay. for camp ser vice is given the men prior to their re turn home and that for armory drills twice a year, June 30th .and December 31st. During the two weeks of an nual encampment the men are furnish ed regular army rations, usually aug mented by a liberal expenditure of the Company Mess Fund. Also medical and dental care is given them during this period without charge. The fact that a man belongs to a Guard Company in a certain town does not prohibit him from leaving such town. Discharges, .transfers or fur loughs for protracted absences or permanent changes of abbde, are freely granted for legitimate reasons. Ways in which a community may help their National Guard Units: By giving it or them, a generous amount of moral support, friendliness and en couragement. Recommend the enlist ment, at least for one term, to any young man physically fit, of good character, and between, the ages of 18 and 30 years. Employers can be of greatest assistance if they give Com pany members employed by them the absence necessary for the two weeks annual encampment, unconditionally. The city administration has shown its appreciation of the local Unit by giving financial assistance. Let the Citizens of this Community, indi vidually and collectively, give it their support in suitable y-oung' men and make thereby the continuance of Com pany "A secure and permanent. Worthington, with a population much smaller than' New Ulm, has Company 5th Infantry.* Its full quota of 93 men was reached weeks ago. Besides it has a waiting list of men to get in. It also has a Detach ment of Q. M. C. of about 20 men. It has no armory. Redwing, with a population about the same as New Ulm, has Co. "B" 5th Infantry. This Company was organized six weeks later than Com pany "A", but has had its authorized strength of 93 men for the past three months. It has a waiting list of men to get in. It has a poor armory. Redwood Falls, with a population Dr. L. A. Fritsche Dr. Albert Fritsche FRITSCHE CLINIC New Ulm, Minnesota. Dr. William H. Fritsche ALL THIS WEEK of about half that of New Ulm, has Co. "L," 5th Infantry. It has a strength of 88 men, therefore only 5 men •short of its quota. New Ulm is 27 men short. Where is the cause for this? Simply lack of applicants. Lack of interest on the part of parents to recommend this service to their eligible sons, And on the part of employers to recommend this service to their eligible male em ployees. If this City and vicinity is unable of unwilling to db its share hi securing the men needed, there is no use for me to make the effort. The Guard Company must go by the board. On the contrary, I am reasonably certain that it will hot come to this, that by the end of April, the Com munity will send me more suitable young men ttan I can "place, that not only will we have our full quota of 93 men, but that we will have men to spare for a waiting list. Therefore, Citizens, do your share in this work, if you consider it worth while, and I shall do mine, with pleasure. Max Sebald. SEA kOVEk TELL S OF WAR VENTURES (Continued from page 1.) to cripple the speed of this vessel so that by the time these people were landed and the identity of the "See adler" became known, the raider had rounded Cape Horn, and was in the Pacific Ocean. -.*•• Wrecked In Pacific. In the Pacific Ocean there were very few merchant vessels. After having been on board ship for over fifteen months the members of the crew be came sick with beri-beri, and for that reason Captain Kling decided to make a landing at one of the islands in he Pacific and give his men an oppor tunity to eat fresh vegetables and fruit to tone up the system. Landing was made at Mopelia, wheTe unfortunately on account of the coral reefs, the vessel was wrecked. Enough of the wreck age was saved to build huts on the is land and for four months they lived there contentedly with the natives. Some of the crew who had gone out in search of a vessel, were captured by the British. Just about the time that the crew were despairing "of ever seeing the main land again, a small merchant ship came to the island which the "Seeadler" crew captured in a very scientific manner and then started for the Oster Island where the ship which was an oldT ramshackle affair went to pieces and the crew was once more cut off from civilization and were forced to live with the Canucks. From here they finally succeeded in getting to Chile. It was in Chile that Captain Kling performed anbther feat, showing his German energy and skill, in raising a vessel which had been buried in the sand for twenty-three years and where all previous efforts to raise it had failed. During the course of the lecture about eighty pictures were thrown on the screen which were explained by Captain Kling and formed a part of his Dr. Geo. F.

The Ladies Aid of the Union Hospi tal held their quarterly business and social meeting at Turner Hall Monday afternoon. The chief matter up for discussion was the question whether to hold the annual dinner on decora tion Day this year or not. It was finally decided not to do so but to ask members of the Association to donate in cash an amount equal to what they have in past years donated in supplies for the dinner. The dinners for the past two years have not netted an amount .sufficient to warrant all the work done by the ladies in addition to their donations and they feel they will be money ahead to donate cash in tlw.to.plEW.l :|^i|M'^S?A a It was decided to continue sewing for the ho|pilai and to ,purfchase out of Association funds various small items needed for the institution."
