TOLEDO PLATOON HOME
Last evening the 3rd Co. C. A. C-.
N. G. returned from tho annual sum
mer encampment at Fort Stevens,
where the bys have bean since the
14th of June, receiving Tie'.d and bat
tery training. The trip wr.s enjoyed
by all, many new experiences anl
much benefit was dcrivod by
the training on tho ivo bi ten-Inch
disappearing guns of Battei-y Russell
which were turned ovir to the Guards
for instruction purposes by the Reg
ulars stationed there.
The first pr.rt of the training was
devoted to tracking tarotr, sighting
the guns, loading and firing with
dummy ammunition, until the men be
came familiar with the routine" cf the
battery and were quick and accurate
In all of their various duties1 the
success of the whole depending upon
each Individual doing his rart well.
This practi. e was done by day and at
night by aid of powerful s?.irc!ilights
which swept tho ccea:i und skyline.
Second came what is known as
"sub-caliber" practice. A one Inch
barrel was placed within the breech
of tho targo Un Inch i;uns and in thi
manner experience was ?a:.icd wi'.h a
rri'iit reduction in expense duo to the
difference in the cue inch and ten
Inch projectiles and powder charges.
Third and bat came the actual big
gun firins. The powder charge for
one shot weighed 187 lbs. and the pro
jectile w.Jjhed 019 lb3. When in
the firing position or "in battery" the
muzzle of the gun is above the par
aplt but when the gun Is fired the
force of the recoil causes it to dis
appear down behind the paraplt Into
the loading position. When ready to
fire again it is raised by counter
weights. The target was between
three and f've miles from the battery
on the ocean, towed by a tug. It was
made of canvas on a frame ten feet
square. Four rounds of "service" am
munition were fired, one beinr a trial
shot and three of th"m record shots.
All four shots were direct hits. How-
evr the 3rd Co. lost the cup by a
narrow margin of 3 yards the Albany
Co. making the nearest shot.
While at Fort Stevens the boys
spent one day on tho rifle range and
had target shooting, showing good
marksmanship, Corp. Lorkwood mak
ing he highest score and many others
ot tho platoon coming close after In
number of paints won. Nearly every
man made at least one bulls eye.
Friday, the 24th, Governor Olcott
was at Fort Stevens and .'he troops
were marched in review; and Wed
nesday tho 3Cih while enroule home,
the Guards were paraded in Portland
and ware greeted with much applause
tiy tne people ot that city.
While at camp several promotions
were made. As Lieut. Mice was1 not
in a position to go with .the plaioon,
due to Stato Highway work, he re
signed his commission and Dr. L. Hoyt
Brown (Sergeant) was elected to fill
the resulting vacancy. The non com
missioned ' officers were all advanced
and several new ones were made.
Serg. Hayden succeeded Serg. Brown
and Corp. Johnston was made a ser-.
geant. A number of privates received
the rank of "first class." The names
are not available at this time but will
be published later."
While at Fort Stevens the Toledo
platoon wus laken as a model by other
Guard companies to show how the bar
racks should be kept, etc. Much credit ,
is due the platoon for the good show
