' to Be at State In of Newer Drill STATE COLLEGE, Mar. 17.-"Squads right,'' the military command which proved the flypaper to tangle the foot of thousands of Pennsylvanians when they attended the Pennsylvania State College, will be abandoned by the department of military science and tactics at the , college fa the near future. ·"' In its place will be an entirely new drill organization for the 2,300 Penn State students enrolled in basic and Rdvanced courses in military tactics, according to Colonel Ambrose R. Emery, professor and head of the department of military science and commandant of the R. O. T. C. corps. "Squads right," in its present complicated form, was originated during the World War, although a movement by the same name existed RS far back as 1891, Major Donovan. P. Yeuell, assistant professor of military science at *Penn State, said today. During the "World "War 4,000,000 men weve trained in the movement, and since the war hundreds of thousands in the army and the National Guard have tried to master its intricacies. With but lew exceptions, Major Yeuell believes, all failed. In the new drill organizations, squads will-be formed in a single line with the corporal on the right. Behind the first line additional squads will be formed. And instead ot the complicated "squads right," privates in the future will be com" pelled only to execute a right face. The new drill will not be pretty, Major Yeuell said, but it will be efficient in the movement of men, the purpose of all drill organizations. NATURAL GAS OUTPUT_DROPS PITTSBURGH, Mar. 17.--Western Pennsylvania's natural gas supply is gradually diminishing, a Public Utility Cimmission examiner, Harry K.
