We all were loath to see him o, for he was truly loved by all of is boys He was "the beloved com,ander" and was envied by many cause of the fact that he could get be most out of his men and hold sure place in their hearts. Few len can do that, and it was a real ess to our boys when he was transarred. To return to the boys--the non-cointissioned personnel is as follows: tosenthal, Sergeant First-Class; Ford, Sergeant; Powell, Sergeant; 1a11, Corporal. All of them have lone well.

'the army) and you ba idathe sergeant's work. He act. -s a buffer between the higher authorities and the men. If the man is untidy, not in proper uniform, or fails in any way, we never take the man to task but ask the sergeant why he allows the man to do this. The men, on the other hand never ask an officer for anything but go to the sergeant. The sergeant has to do all but feed his men. That's Ford's job. He never was an intimate of mine, for he was a Freshman when I was a Senior, but when a man shows up like he has, I'm for hint and if he never comes back from Europe, at least some of his friends will know that he "panned out" fine. None of our fellows have been in the guard-house, which indicate, that their conduct has been uniformly good. Not many sections have so good a record. They had an "esprit de corps" that was truly remarkable. They have never been surpassed in any of the work incident to their training. I hope that they will find time to write to the University from their destination, for I am anxious to keep up with their record. Recently, I received a letter from Dan W. Collins, a former student at CONCERN BY FIORIDA Third Sunday Afternoom Erect of Kind at Canip Wheeler. (From Trench and Camp.) The 124th Infantry band gave the third Sunday concert at Knights of Columbus recreation hail Sunday afternoon, a large crowd attending. This band was formerly the Second Florida regimental band, which served on the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., last year. On Aug. 5 of this year, when the National Guard was called out for service on the Eu.ropean battle front the University of Fiornda band enlisted in a body and it is now the 124th Infantry band. The personnel of this organization, coming as it does front the various sections of the State, makes it very representative of the musical talent for which the State has always felt -ra of. There is hardly a bad in this section C the country that can compare with time above band and .11 the credit is due to Albert L. Miller, under whose direction the baud has been worked into the excellent shape it is now in. The people of Macon and the soldier boys at the camp are very loud in their praise of these Sunday afternoon concerts and as the sign, "Everybody Welcome," is the greeting that meets you when you caine to the Knight. of Columbus recreation hall at Camp Wheeler there is no wonder that the hall is always packed with the boys and their friends.

Florida F's were presented to the football men Fniday morning in chapel. Coach Buser before giving the ters gave a brief talk mn which he lined the work of athletics in school, and declared that it was let-. outthe his wish and hope that some day the athletic would have to pass in 100(4 of his work in place of 60% as was required now. His talk included a short account of the work and grit which was nectUary to gain one of the letter., and pictured in graphic words what it m ccswerreant to the sucsful warsof the symbol. "Picking the men," he continued, "is hard job," in order to go around this, and to remember the men who were unable to play in a sufficient number of games to win their letter another symbol was granted, a "F.

Mr. Maple's talk was interesting and well delivered. It dealt chiefly with the young man of today and the various difficult problems with which he had to cope in his fight for elastenfle. He made clear that each young man had his work to perform and that the Moeat could only perform hi. by sag in school and aplying hii.df to the studies at hand. "It rquire. more moral cOwrtge to stay in school and live a clean upright life, than it does to face the more simple issues of a soldier's lit,," this wa, the thought which he used as a text for his talk. He explained that when the work of reconstruction is begun after the war, it will be the college trained man who is familiar with all the complex social problems of today, who will see that every one gets a square deal. "The end of the war will see a world brotherhood." Mr. Maple also based much of his address upon this theme, and expressed the hope that some 4ley the big natgoap woul4mo t tha nattos, lit -a ur resdd equal, and that they all mtst Law, a squar. deal. Mr. C. T. McCalenn of Jacksonville gave a short talk and Bible reading which was well received. This meeting was opened with a selection by the Orchestra, this music, together with the two interesting talks made one of the best meetings held this year. Dr. Murphree promised that he would not fail to speak next Sunday, so an interesting program is assured. It was gratifying to note the large number that turned out to the meeting Sunday, it Is to be hoped that this increase will continue until the' entire student body attends these helpful gatherings.

He turned his face to the wall of the rude log cabin where the two had toiled and taken pot luck together, and -s the aun went down he passed "over the range." The partner, left alone in the desolatiop of the desert and wildrne., buried his friend in the drifted GATOR--24333--FOUR sand, and erected as a monument over hi. grave a boulder of granite in the rough. And upohn It, with infinite care and patience, with a miner's pick he placed these wofls: "H. Done His Damndest." It is quite generally accepted among trainers that bracnien are the hardest athlete, to train. To a very large extent this can be attributed to the l fact that the sport itself is conducive to the development of temperamental "high strung" athletes.
