Arrangements are being completed
by the National Rifle Association of
America for sending a rifle team to
London to complete in the Olympic
Games. The U. S. Cartridge Com
pany has come forward with a gener
ous offer to pay the entire expenses
of the team which will consist of six
members with probably two alter
nates, a captain and quartermaster.
Gen. James A. Drain, president of the
National Rifle Association, has been
selected as captain of the team and in
this manner a double purpose will be
served for while in England, Gen.
Drain will meet the representatives
f all the foreign governments com
peting in the rifle matches and make
arrangements as far as possible for
the Palma Trophy Match to be shot
in this country in 1909. Should the
plans of the N. R. A. be successfully
executed, as no doubt they will, the

the details of the contest. This
trophy has been won by Princeton
ami George Washington Universities.
The Wakefield range has been
placed at the disposal of the N. R. A
by the Massachusetts Rifle Assoc
lion. It is the range on which the
N'ew England Rifle Association holds
its annual matches and is within
thirty minutes ride of Boston. A
number of universities and colleges

The movement for schoolboy rifle
practice received a powerful impetus
from the schoolboy matches held in
Washington recently. The National
Capital Rifle and : Revolver club,
small but energetic organization and
numbering among its members sonic
of the best pistol shots in the covin
try, undertook the task ot conducting
the tournament. The newspapers co
operated heartily, the Evening Star
and Washington 'limes giving hand
some silver cups to be competed for
annually until won three times. There
were company, battalion and inter
school shoots, with competitions on
the sub-target gun and competitions
for officers and for individual prizes.
Speaking of the competition secre
tary A. S. Jones in his report to the
National Rifle Association, says:
"The National Capital Rifle and Re
volver Club ranges arc the best I
have seen for contests of this nature.
They are located at the end of the
drill hall and are 16 in number. Rec

Letters have been sent to the ad
jutants general of all states and ter
ritories, to the heads of the official
military establishments, to civilian
clubs and others, notifying them of
the preliminary contests to be held
for places on the team. These will
probably be held on three ranges in
targets with one inch bulls eye. All
matches were shot in strings of ten
shots for which a charge of live cents
was made. The new 22 caliber U. S.
Army rifle was used and again dem
onstrated its efficiency. It carried
a .22 caliber short cartridge, of which
all the different makes were used,
the elevations being the same.
