12 GAS ATTACK 1 CAMP SPO RT S E d i t e d b y S E R G E A N T F . jr. A S H L E Y “LOUIE” PONZO, THE BATTLER OF B COMPANY, 107TH INFANTRY. “Tammany Lon,” as Ms intimates call Mm, is one of the best two-handed little battlers on the reservation. He can wallop like a charge of T. N. T. and has quite a long list of K. O.’s to his credit. His ambition in life just now is to get just one punch at the Crown Prince. “I’ll knock ’im for a battalion of mess shacks, ’ ’ Louie assures us. BASE HOSPITAL GETS SIGNALS CROSSED. There was w eeping and gnashing of teeth and a loud wail for smelling salts at the Base Hospital last Saturday when the base­ ball players of the 102nd Field Signal Bat­ talion interned the nine of the Base Hos­ pital in the morgue. The score was 9 to 8 in favor of the A. D. T. enthusiasts. The game was uneventful until the last session, neither team showing any marked supremacy. When the morphine experts took the field the tally was tied 8 to 8. Private George W alsh of Company A, did the work for the Signal men. He managed to get an exclusive wire to the Medico pitcher and polled the, first pitched ball for a homer. SAVE TIME AND TROUBLE. “Shall I have your lunch brought up to you on deck here, dear?” asked the husband of the seasick wife. “No, love; have it thrown straight over­ board; it will save time—and trouble.” VIC VOTERETSAS WINS MARA­ THON TRYOUT. Team Chosen for Evening Mail’s Race In New York City. The last tryout for the Evening Mail’s Modified Marathon was held last Saturday. The candidates for the team which will represent the 27th Division in the long dis­ tance classic, started from the Division Headquarters office a t 2:00 P. M. and fol­ lowed the Snake Road to the Morgan Monu­ ment in Spartanburg, returning over the same route. The journey was an even eight miles. Nick, the Greek of the 106th Infan­ try, who was in New York on furlough when the trial was held and a pair of the, harriers from the 102nd Engineers, who have been on special duty in Virginia, will also be on the starting mark for the Gotham fighters. The order of finish: Time 50.42, Voteret- sas, Co. K, 105th Inf.; Time 50.43, Williams, Base Hospital; Time 50.45, Sankof, Co. E, 105th Inf.; Time 51.00, Naylor, Co. C, 102nd HIS HAT’S IN THE RING! I have under my management the famous lightweight of New York, Johnny Molanari, who stands ready to box either Kiddie Dia­ mond or Barney Williams, who both claim the Camp Championship. As neither of the two boys mentioned ac­ cepted the challenge, all the boys in camp are beginning to think Diamond and Wil­ liams are afraid to meet Molanari. Molanari is ready to box, just for the pleasure the boys of the camp will derive from it. But it seems Diamond and Wil­ liams won’t box him unless they get paid for it. Molanari is anxious to decide, and see which one should be called the camp cham­ pion. Molanari has a record to be proud of as he has boxed some of the most prominent lightweights in N. Y. City and up State. Will the manager of the two above men­ tioned fighters please answer this challenge so arrangements for the bouts can be m ade? The semi-finals of the camp boxing tourna­ ment w ere held to-day and Johnny Molanari’s name was given as an entry, but was not allowed to box because he did not belong to the 27th Division. But he gave a three- round exhibition bout, w ith Jimmy F ottrell of Co. I, 107th Inf. just to show the boys of the camp that it isn’t money he is looking for. So, if Diamond and Williams still have the idea that they are camp champions, Molan­ ari is ready to take them on and prove it. MECH. HARRY METHVEN, Care of Co. I, 51st Pioneers.

THAT WAS SOMETHING. “Can you keep anything on your stom­ ach?” the ship’s doctor asked. “No, sir,” he returned feebly, “nothing but my hand.” The Twins—U-Boats and W astefulness are. a m enace to the Allies.
