THE WADSWORTH GAS ATTACK a n d RIO GRANDE RATTLER 06th WINS BAYONET JOUST WITH 107th Padded Warriors Quell 107th Jabbers. Before a crowd of three thousand men in uniform , two officers and fifteen N. C. O.’s of the 106th Infantry fought their way to a well earned victory over the representa tives of the 107th Infantry in a bayonet com b a t The hero of the occasion was little Corporal Kaskell, of Co. H, 106th, who, when all on his side but him self had been elim i nated, fought his way to the highest posi tion by defeating B u rns and B a rr, both splendid antagonists, and bringing home the bacon in the last run against Gadebusch. The score, 133 to 126 points, tells the story of a close match, and it was only decided by the last encounter. For the 107th the great credit is due to B a rr and Gadebusch. The former, after suf fering defeat in the first round, worked his way through as a w inner of the prim a ry losers. Then, being allowed to compete w ith the prim a ry w inners, he worked through to the end, proving him self Kas- kell’s hardest antagonist. The latter show ed some of the stuff w hich all true Am eri cans love when, w ith a mashed hand, he w ent through rig h t to the final bout. In the officers’ m atches big L ieutenant W a lrath, of the 107th, showed probably the finest exhibition of bayonet fighting th a t has ever been witnessed here. There was noth ing “by the num b e rish” about his fighting, nor was it of the kind w ith which one can argue “If you do that, I’ll do this.” There are m any members of both regim ents to-day who would give much to be in a cold steel bayonet charge led by him. L ieutenant Brennan and L ieutenant Hodes, of the 106th, showed th a t a fighting germ had been in jected into their fifteen Non-Coms which had the word “Victory” painted all over it. It is lucky the bayonets were padded. A ltogether it was perhaps th a t sp irit of w inning at the expense of everything th a t gave the edge to the 106th Infantry in the whole match. Not to be satisfied until your opponent is mashed to a pulp in fact, and not merely in looks, is the foundation of Am erican bayonet fighting, and this was illustrated to such an extent th a t at one tim e a general encounter between the sup porters of both regim ents was im m inent.

Young Mike Donovan, of the M ilitary Police, and son of the fam ous boxing in structor of the New York A thletic Club, has issued a deft to all the m iddlew eights in camp. Mike claims the half-way title and if there is any knuckle pusher in the near vicinity who doubts his rig h t to it, let him send his challenge to Company A, M ilitary Police. Donovan can m ake 158 pounds if necessary. HARVEY COHN WANTS AUDITORIUM. Billy Sunday will have nothing on H arvey Cohn, if the latter can have his way. The latest plans of the Camp A thletic Instructor call for the construction of a big shack much on the same style as th a t used by the well known evangelist. The need of an enclosed structure for athletic events in camp has been brought home to all by the recent cold spell. W hile all sorts of precautions were taken to make the Red Triangle Tent comfortable at the recent boxing bouts, it was too much to expect th a t all draughts could be kept out, and it was not long before m o st of the spec tators were forced to take places in the rear of the tent where they could dance about in the aisles and at the same tim e catch a long-distance view of the m en in the ring. The dressing room was a first class im itation of one of A rm o u r’s cold storage plants and none of the contestants risked getting down into ripg costume. The 102nd Engineers are now draw ing up the plans for a shack th a t will accommo date any athletic crowd Camp W adsw o rth can assemble. They will be subm itted to Major General O’Ryan for approval, and, if satisfactory, funds will be raised by sub scription for the expenses. The New York papers are expected to aid in getting the coin. WOULD YOU LIK E A FURLOUGH TO NEW YORK CITY? If so, why not try to make the relay team th a t will represent the Division in the one mile event at the Millrose Games at M adi son Square Garden, January 23rd? H a rvey Cohn is looking for four first class quarter m ilers to m ake the trip North. If you w a n t to be one of the lucky ones, consult the A thletic D irector a t Division H e a d q u a rters to-day. E n tries close January 19th. The team will get at least a week in Gotham to train for the race.
