The enthusiasts over military drillj. for public school boys, and they are not-, unknown in 'his community, pet a cold; douche in the report of a-special commit-. tee of the physical education society of; Boston. This committee, consisting of,Col. T. K. Edmande, Dr. Dudley A. Sar^ gent and Edward ]•!. Harwell, con-- derans unreservedly any system of milK. tary drill in '.he schools—first, because; for obvious reasons it cannot afford in-, " stitutions in the. art of firing the rifle,, • the most vital pnrt of drill tactics, anu,, . second, because.it affords very incom-. plete and unsatisfactory physical exer^. cise for growing boys. This 'judgment is fortified by the ex-~ pert opinion of II. J. Koehler, master at; the sword at the West Point military- • academy, who shows that the manual: '..or arms has long- since been, regarded; by military ;nen as fatally lacking as ft; • physical exercise, lie writes ia theses emphatic words: "I deny absolutely- that this drill contains one single fetiti. • ure which cannot be duplicated,. aye K and discounted in every well-regulated; > gymnasium in the country to-day." Attdj . ". again he says: "A thorough physical; training develops all the necessary- physical qualities to the greatest dc-*.-. 1 ' {Tree, and it .-Joes it without injury. IfJ . we have athletes, we .shall never be witb-%. : out soldiers." These objections from the .standpoints;-' • of expei ts in physical culture and mili-v':' tary training- ought to be conclusive,,. says tlw Springfield (Mass.)
