FEMALES MUTINY AT ONLY ARMY SITE IN ALTON The first mutiny on an Alton military installation occurred Friday when females who were guests at Western Military Academy attempted to have the last word. The day camp, which has had both boys and girls in its final week, has been a week-long arena for competition between the sexes. The girls had to iisten to what poor drivers women were, how frightfully wrong they threw a Softball or wielded a bat, or lifted a rifle. Females, oven those in the puppy stage, do not take well to this mass brow-beating by the males. Friday, the last day of the camp, the girls, by subterfuge still undetermined, lured the boys out of the dressing room after the final swim. The girls then invaded the place, gathered up every available shirt and dumped them into the swimming pool. Facts are hazy here because there has been some effort by .authorities at WMA to keep the news of thii mutiny from the press. It can be reported Btoutly, though, thai 15 boys wearing no shirts were met by their parents when the final bell rang. But grim-faced Western Military Academy officers, disturbed at this mutiny, gave the day to the boys at the final flag lowering. One of the officers announced that next year the boys would be permitted retaliation and if their tact'cs remained within the bounds of reason it would not be listed as a mutiny. As for the girls, there actions would be so considered. Mainly because, well, they were girls and above all Western is one of the few If not the only, plot of ground left in Alton that is devoted entirely to the benefit of the male. With that bit of straight-faced humor out of the way, the officer announced that the WMA Day Camp had been a resounding success for both the boys and girls and it would be continued next summer.
