i (Associated Press)
London, Dec. 29. The new Jewish
battalion of the British army is now
encamped for its final training period
on a hill side in the west of England.
Early in the new year it will leave
for the Palestine front. ;
The battalion is under the com
mand of Colonel J. H. Paterson, an
Irishman and a great lion hunter in
East Africa in the days before the
war. His experience in command of
Jewish, troops dates back to the Gal Gal-lipoli
lipoli Gal-lipoli campign, where he was in
Uharge of the famous Zion Mule
Corps, formed in Egypt of Jewish
refugees from Palestine. ; Af terthe
close of the Dardanelles campaign,
the Zion corps was disbanded, but
some of its members managed to
make their way to England and form
the. nucleus of the new Jewish bat battalion.

The remainder includes the members
of the old Zion Mule Corps, a large

The battalion is practically tee

opened in camp a few weeks ago was
Closed in a fortnight for lack of bus
iness. Colonel Patterson himself is
an ardent temperance advocate.
"Crime r in thearmy" he said the
other day, "is due to drink and noth:
ing else. This is shown by the fact
that our guardroom has been empty
practically from the start, and you
would have to travel around many
training camps to see the like. The
disused cells have been turned into
bedrooms for the guards." v
A great variety of" trades and pro
fessions are represented in the bat
talions There are jinore tailors than
any other single trade, and this fact
is reflected in the excellent fit and
smart cut of the battalion's uniforms.
There are several artists and sculp sculptors,

British sculptor, Jacob Epstein, whose
work has been a center of interest in
England for the past three years. A
prominent concert violinist, ; Anton

.EARNED A MUCH V
NEEDED LESSON
(Associated Press)
Atlanta, Dec. 29 Army doctors at
Camp Gordon, the cantonment near
Atlanta where 40,000,, troops of the
national army are being trained, have
discovered a new form of heart dis disease
ease disease brought on by the drill and phys
ical evercises which the men perform
in their daily training.
At the outset of the training camp
it was noticed that every day a num.
ber of men would fall by the wayside
during a hike or a march or. a drill.
The commander paid but little atten-;
tion to these men, thinking they were
simply tired and possibly were faking
a more serious fatigue' than they felt.
But when the men continued to drop
out, the army doctors were called in
to make an investigation.
They found that the systematic
training, so different from the inac inactive
tive inactive routine of many men who take
no exercise, produced a form of heart
failure, and that this trouble become
chronic if a soldier fell out of ranks
as many as three times. They found
further, that a man whose trouble had
become chronic was no longer fit for
military duty. His heart could not be
depended on to perform its functions.
But if they took him after his first
fainting spell and gave him a careful
rest cure treatment in the hospital,
he became all right and stood the
test of daily drilling without an
further difficulty.

for our home boy, Lester Lucas, gave

also was of a high order.

was Carl Denton's peacherina stunt,

said that some of these shed tears
when he pulled off his wig just before

. Arithmetic Once Was Common.
At the" time of the colonization of
America in the first half of the seven seventeenth
teenth seventeenth century arithmetic was not con considered
sidered considered essential to a boy's education
unless he was to enter commercial life
or certain trades. The Instruction in
arithmetic was often given in another
school, called a writing school, or a
reckoning school. When arithmetic
was taught In the grammar 'school it
was very rudimentary. Not only was
this true, but among the nobility; and
the aristocracy of the educated, arith arithmetic
metic arithmetic was- looked 'upon as "common,"
"vile," "mechanic," because it was the
accomplishment of clerks, artisans,
tradesmen and others who bore no
sign of heraldry. Consequently It was
beneath the dignity of a boy unless he
was "less capable of learning and fit fittest
test fittest to be put to trades."
