ACTIVITIES.

The company drilled five months as Home Guards with two drills a week, and over an hour at each drill.

Company A as State Guard, had uniforms, furnished by Major Zimmerman, and afterward paid for by the individual members.

Number of regular drills held by Company A, sixty-one, which consisted of close order, extended order, guard duty, bayonet exercise, and ceremonies. Number of battalion drills, three; held by Goddard, Wichita, and Cheney. At these close order, extended order, guard mount, and dress parade, also due honor paid to the band playing the National Anthem, and this was a thrilling treat to the spectators.

The company attended the funeral of Floyd Bennett, a member of the Cheney company, and conducted the funeral of Lieutenant Cunningham, United States army, with full military honors.

The company furnished guards for the town ten days after two grain elevators had been set afire on the same day. Guards were furnished the city for twenty-seven days after the marshal was shot by a burglar. The guards were out looking for auto thieves at night on two occasions.

The battalion major, without remuneration drilled the high-school students daily for a period of six months, and they became real snappy in the work. The school cadets aided in all the war drives. Five joined the army, although none were over eighteen years old.
