RECEIVE NEW UNIFORMS
Rock Island Naval Reserves Given 50
Outfits of Clothing.
An issue of 50 new blue uniforms
for the naval reserves was- received
this week from the naval base of sup
plies, and the boys will wear them
for the first time at the dance which
i? to be held next Thursday at Armory
hall. This dance is for the benefit
of the boat house which the devision
is working so hard to secure and it is
expected that & large crowd will be
present. . .
It has not been- officially announced
as yet, but it ;s very probable that the
local division will have its cruipsa the
latter part of July. The cru'oe this
year will be on the Nashville, which
fired the first shot in the Spanish
American war, and instead of an
eight-day cruise, 12 days will be spent
on the wnter. The roll of tha division
is complete and no more recruits will
be taken this year. This means that
a great degree of efficiency will be
developed up to cruising time and the
local division will hold iis usual high
place in that respect.
