News Notes From Camp Wheeler Camp Wheeler, Ga., May 6. A se cies of real war problems are to be worked out at the artillery range by officers of the division, assisted by the artillery units. The 118th Field Artillery goes to the range this week for artillery practice and to stage sev eral barrage attacks just as the Amer ican forces are doing abroad. An Imaginary enemy is attacked, and for hours the roar of the three-inch guns give the situation a realistic touch of war. . Gen. Francis H. French, division commander; officers from division headquarters anfl all brigade oUcers, bave witnessed several "battles" that nave been fought. Gen. J. L. Hayden, commander of the 56th Artillerv Bri gade, will take the 116th, 117th and 118th artillery regiments to the field during next week , for. these practice attacks. The school for company and pla toon commanders that has been in session all this week will continue through next week. Major Jules Bel lot Is the instructor. The school was to have closed Saturday, but there are so many important subjects to be cov ered that the program could not be covered this week. .More than fifty officers, chiefly majors, are attending. On May 13 the men will begin training in the trenches. The com plete program has not been an nounced. Division officers say certain detachments of men will be selected ard sent to the trenches to live for a stated period. They will practice fighting the enemy just as if they were in France. Dugouts are now being repaired, and the trenches on Artillery Hill are "being put In condition for the men. This will be the first time the men have been sent to the trenches to live. and they are expecting a real tough time. They will practice with the hand grenade, and will be taught the modern system of advancing and re treating from the front to the rear trenches. They also will learn the methods of communication In the trenches. Private James P.. Houck, Company D. 106th Engineers, has been tried be fore the general court martial for de serting and sentenced to serve ten years at Fort Leavenworth. He de serted last December and was not ap prehended until last month at Cairo, Oa. General French, division com mander, approved the sentence. Year for Desertion Private William G. King, alias D. F. Mitchell, Company K, 122d Infan try, was sentenced to serve a year for desertion, but on account of h's good record the division commander sus pended the sentence. He has returned to his command for duty. A large force of soldiers are busy preparing the detention camp for the 10,000 selectmen from Georgia, Flor ida and Alabama, who will report here the latter part of May.. They will be ktpt in the detention camp for ten days after their arrival, in order that they may be vaccinated and inoculat ed. Then they will be distributed among the various units. The arrival of the new men will complete the division, giving it a strength of 27,000 men. The coning of the new men will also necessitate more hard work for the old men.. They will have to turn back and go through all past training for the ben efit of the "rookies." Division officers say they feel confident the division will not get orders to move 'before next September, on account of hav ing to train the new men. The body of Private Joseph F. Johnson, Company A, 122nd infantry, who died at the base hospital of pneu monia, was shipped home yesterday. The body was sent to Atlanta. Major C. R. Layton, division adju tant, is absent on a short furlough, he is said to have gone to Gaines ville, Fla., his home, to visit rela tives. Captain H. H. Aveilee, assist ant adjutant, Is acting division adju tant. Captain Aveilee is from Savan nah, and has been at division head quarters for the past several months. As the result of so many non-commissioned officers receiving appoint ments to the training school,, which opens May 15, a lot of vacancies will soon occur in the different organiza tions, which will mean promotions for enlisted men. The regimental com manders say they are now making preparation to promote the necessary number as soon as the training school opens. The 122nd infantry and the 118th field artillery will soon be presented with the colors. The people of At lanta a"re coming down and present the infantry with a flag and the peo ple of Savannah will make the pre sentation to the artillerymen. Most of the men In the 118th field artillery are from Savannah. The men in both or ganizations are looking forward to the exercises with much pleasure, es pecially the officers. Protest Taxi Charges Soldiers are arranging to protest against taxlcab drivers charging them fifty cents fare from camp to the city. They are forced to spend a dollar for the round trip, a distance of about twelve miles, and claim the rate is entirely too high. There are a few busses that operate to and from camp that charge 25 cents, but there are not enough of these to accommodate the division. Many of the soldiers draw les9 than $10 salary each month for the reason they have allotted so much of their pay to relatives, bought insurance and Liberty Bonds on the installment rlan, and in charging them a dollar to bring them to town and carrv them bnck. the taxlcab operators reap most ot the soldier's pay. The company of engineers are still repairing the road near the rifle rtnge. Within a few more days they will complete the task which has kept trera away from camp for the past week. The drainage work back of the base hospital is still in progress. The big canal will soon be completed. The ne gro soldiers sent to Camp Wheeler are camped near where the work is in progress and are aiding in the work. Jacksonville Metropolis. AUCTION SALE -01- HOUSEHOID GOODS AND FURNITURE (Of J. R.
