CAMP JACKriON, Gearhart. Or., July
1$. (Special.) Just how to throw a
hattalion and the companies that com
pose it Into battle was the subject of
tndy and demonstration In the field
instruction camp here, today for Infan
The 2000 men of the Oregon and
Idaho commands and the Twenty-first
Regular Infantry put In the day ex
rerimentinir with the intricacies of
launching an attack. Every conceiv
able emergency that might arise In
battle was applied to the exercises and
each commander of a battalion and
company was given an opportunity to
handle the situation in his own way.
This technical Instruction, it was
announced, is of the greatest impor
tance, as it gives officers and non
commissioned officers a chance to
make their mistakes In time of peace
when the cost of error is not In human
Actual Tactics Taught.
The tactical situations presented
were of such a character as will be
met with In active service and the
anticipation of difficult emergencies is
calculated to train commanders to do
the right thing automatically at the
right time, when a blunder might im
peril the succeas of a whole battle
or campaign. Military blunders in war
time were presented as an invariable
cause of defeat and as the most dread
ed thing in war.
There was no roar of blank ammuni
tion as the several battles raged today.
Bignal flags alone Indicated the vol
ume of fire one body of troops was
delivering, in theory, against another.
Nor was one officer's wits matched
against those of another.
Such mistakes as were made became
the subject of Immediate discussion,
with Army officers adjusting and reg
ulating the various forward move
ments. All tactics were in attacks today.
The fine art of defense and of getting
away when an enemy gets the upper
hand will be practiced tomorrow.
Regulars Shovr Snap.
Technical accuracy in company and
battalion attacks was demonstrated by
the Twenty-first Infantry during the
The snap, precision and vigor of the
American regular in action were shown
in all their eloquence as the battalions
advanced from a deployment, at 800
yards, down to the bayonet charge. A
clock works no more regularly than
these bronzed infantrymen from Van
couver Barracks; a dynamo works no
more vigorously, as they sweep into
battle formation and advance to the at
tack. While they are not expected to ap
proximate the skill of these seasoned
regulars in field operations, the Na
tional Guard regiments are proving
their worth as an auxiliary force to the
army for possible war service. A broad
grasp of the military game is shown by
the citizen-soldiers, and as explained by
their army Instructors, they need only
the polishing, such as is being given
now. to put them in an advanced state
of readiness for war.
Camp Sanitation Learned.
In the art of caring for themselves in
camp, and particularly In sanitary mat
ters, the guardsmen are proving them
selves fully capable. No cases of seri
ous Illness have developed anywhere
In camp, while in the Third Oregon
Regiment not a man is on the sick re
port. So far. sick call has been nothing
mora than a formality, which is held in
decided contrast with National Guard
camps of 10 years ago, when the vic
tims of Improper care by themselves or
of improperly cooked foods and poor
sanitary arrangements were numerous.
As sickness and disease have been more
fatal than bullets to the citizen-soldiers
In past American wars, this Is held as a
One guardsman seriously was Injured
early today while returning in an auto
mobile from Seaside. The victim. Pri
vate William Johnson, aged 27, of Sand
Point, Idaho, was not expected to live
when removed to a hospital at Astoria.
Johnson was leaning from the crowded
automobile when struck by a passing
machine, which had discharged a load
of Infantrymen at camp. Major J. B.
Clayton, chief surgeon, found a frac
ture at the base of the skull.
Reported Drowning Unfounded.
Report that a soldier had been
drowned in the surf last night caused
a, check of the men in camp this morn
ing. After the fact developed that
none was missing or unaccounted for,
it was learned that civilians near the
Oearhart Hotel had become alarmed
unduly by a venturesome soldier who
had gone out a considerable distance
. and had not been seen to retu.
