Anthony of Kansas, It Will Make the Final Report. THE CITY MUST GET BUSY Will Take Combined Efforts of Michigan Reprsentatives and Citizens to Hold Camp. Whether Camp Custer remains a government military reservation or fr.hall be sold, depends upon recommendation of a special committee named by the committee on military affairs of the house of representatives, which will come to Camp Custer for an inspection. 5Sr.is committee, headed by Hon. D.P-. Anthony, Jr., of Kansas, is expected soon. News of the visit came in a communication from the Adjutant general to Major General Hay, commandant of Camp Custer. Chance to Hold Camp. The general impression at Camp Custer is that if Michigan's representation in congress and the Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce expect every influence possible to demonstrate the advantages of Camp Cus-(ter that the camp will be retained, otherwise it may be sold. "I have no hesitancy in saying that I believe Camp Custer to be the best adapted reservation for general military purposes in the United State," Major General Hay said this morning. "It has every facility for the accommodation of an entire division. By this 1 mean that the place for maneuvre for the infantry, machine gunners, artillery yes, and lor an aviation corps could scarcely he bettered, while it has the track-nge, the convenience and the buildings for quartermaster supply and tlie ideal structures and location for hospital." Another officer was frank in saying that he feared that if 'Michigan's congressmen ddn't wake up" we wouldn't have a camp, but if they plugged hard and the Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce got busy at Washington and in Battle Creek i hen the committee arrived, Camp 'uster would probably remain a res-r vat ion. Excels All Camps. "here's no camp in the country t'.'n,f can compare with Custer," he s.. d. "Camp I'ike, in Arkansas, which had been purchased is a joke beside it." And then he enumerated some of the advantages. "To begin with," he said, "Camp Custer is on two trunk line railroads witli quick hauling facilities and It has two excellent pavedways from Battle Creek. "The camp Is so arranged that in two minutes every company in camp can be out on the drill field for action. "There is an excellent parade ground, machine gun, rifle and artillery range. The soli is ideal somewhat sandy and with no long seiges of mud. The climate doesn't go to extremes. There is an absence of malaria, absence of mosquitos.

It was at a picture show at Liberty park, Y l on the even ing of Labor day. A large crowd was watching the picture; some because they have the picture habit, quite a number because they were waiting for "A night in Venice," and many more, no doubt, because they were actually interested in that particular picture. A family group was sitting at one end of the tables where they were serving cool refreshments. This table was at the end of one of the rows, and just beyond it a crowd that could not obtain seats was standing, forming a fringe along the end tables. As always j happens in such cases, a few in the crowd began to edge in a little between the tables where the first comers were seated. But next to where this particular family group was sitting, first one and then another walked in and stood in front. A little good natured banter usually succeeded in removing the obstruction. But then came a iiid.ii wiiose uacK, as one or me j group behind expressed it, was of the "barn-door" type. And his manners, as was also remarked, were another reminder of a barn. , Nothing would nudge him. Then, seemingly emboldened by the thick-skinned boorishness of the man, and his successful infringement on the rights of others, two women came in from the crowd, thus forming a regular line in front of those seated at the tables behind. The raillery from the rear was renewed, but ineffectually. At last one young man in the family group behind, said, "Here, lady, here's a seat." And one of those two women ..actually came and got that seat, placing it in front of the group. Then the woman with her was offered another seat from the group, which j she also took. And there they sat through the rest of the picture 1 quite Insensible to the contempt of all the onlookers. The man left.
