Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta X. Ill I ft THI-, DAILY HF.BAI.D PAGE FIVE PETEWAWA CAMP Where Artillery is Trained (Stall! correspondence ol Mio Turonlu (ilobo.) I'etawawn, .Inly Canada's great nrtlliery school this year is ;it IVt- awawa. Men and youths or nil ranks. and of all stations of Ufa who u'cclc'il to .sums tluur country in tlio ontminco duimrlmontH ol' the Can- adian tfxpedllionary Forcn Imvo been mil from all artillery depots- in the Dominion to this ramp for complete truiniiiK a training that iK.sonioiliinn nuw in the development of an active service army. Il'orutoforc it hns been Hit; pmt'Uce to train individual bat- teries at depots for early Iransfcrcncf -where tlio syllabus is com- plete and more effectual. AS a re- sult of lessons learned at tin; front of the complete dependence upon ar- tillery preparations for uifenpivo measures by the. infantry, the artil- lery is trained en masse, because i" .'Europe, should a big advance lake place the artillery would have to work In greater bodies than even brigades, in order to make any pronounced im- pression upon the modern Cerman or- dnances. The of making the training ;IK complete as possible in all the details of its work on Canadian soil before transference overseas also played a great part in the decision ol" the Minister of Militia to have all the anillcry of I he Dominion concentrat- ed in one camp. Enchanting Encampments Amid the scenic wcr.ders of the Laiircntians and the isle-doited Ot- tawa Klver, the camp is enchanting- ly situated. On hifUi ground on the south sltore of the river, and planted on the wooded hillocks of the plat- eau, the camp proper, with all the per- manent and fully equipped administra- tion and supply oifices, is ideally sit- uated. No lengthy camp lines weary the eye, because they are hidden away among the trees, where the weary after many a hard day's toil in a broiling sun, may repair for n night's restful repose instead of suf- fering in a super-healed hell tent exposed to all the vagaries of the elements. Civilization Wins Out Winding lanes, neatly fenced, laid out as though to please a land-smim gardener railier than -the precise mil- itary mind, add touches of beauty and picturesqueness to the cnnip. Unless the visitor is given a guides lie will experience difficulty in reaching his destination. Camp engineers have labored in these wilds against ruth- less nature. Modern macadamized 1 roads that would put many provin- ciiil cities and towns to shame, spread 1 like a spider's across through and round about the camp. At the entrance over the .Petawuwa Klver, a huge new concrete viaduct has been erected which enables the artillery- men to draw their heavy guns into the camp on a level road, rather than perform the hitherto almost impos- sible task of carrying them down and up the steep banks of this raging tor- rent. For this improvement the troopers offer up their sincere thanks. It has saved tliejn many days of Heavy work. Men Move In During the past eighteen days, ninny in camp development have been worked, and it is claimed that no camp, not even some of the British permanent k-amps excel it. During these days men have moved in. The first brigade to ar- rive was the 13th from military dist- rict No. 3 with head- quarters at Kingston. This brigade includes the 50th, 51st, 52nd, and 53rd Batteries. Then followed the other brigades, the 12th from Mili- tary District No. 2, includes the 47th Battery from Ham- ilton, the 48th from Toronto, the from St. Catherines, and the 54th from Brantford. The 1-ltii Brigade includes the 55th and iitUh Batteries of Guelnh, the 57th Battery of Que- bec and the tiGth Depot Battery oC Montreal. The 15th Brigade comes from extreme east and west. It in- cludes the 58th Battery of Frederic- ton, N. B., the Battery of Winni- peg, the GOth oC Regina, Sask., the Cist of Lethbridge, Alberta and the (12nd of Victoria B. 0. The 4th Divis- ional Ammunition Column includ units from Montreal, Halifax and Kingston. Universities Are Represented Every university in the Dominion is represented in these units, as are most of the trades and professions. Men that have held lectureships in the seats of learning, others who had embarked upon promising careers in the professions, many who had entered the large financial institu- tions, they have given up all to follow the fiery cross. Commissions they spurned, preferring the rough and ready life of the rank and file so long as they were doing their duty, Remarkable Progress Dominated by the passion to get into the game and bring it to a pro- per issue with all possible speed, the men, under the capable guidance of their no loss interested officers, havo surprised older military men by their exceptional adaptability to the rigid requirements of the new business. After eighteen days together, these men, by their exploits on the parndo ground, their work at the guns and at drill, have become the pride of the district comma.iders. and have earned merited applause from the Governor- General II. H. IT. the Duke of C naught, who has, passed through flic artillery school himself and what it means. Men who Jio.b: Toronto This newest Overland is the world's most powerful low- priced car. It has a horsepower en bloc motor that is a perfect marvel for speed, power and endurance. By increasing the bore of the motor from 3YS to we are able to offer a power 1 plant which at 1950 R.P.M. develops full horse- power. Tests under every condition in all parts of the Dominion demonstrate that it easily develops better than fifty miles per hour on the road. Speed of course- varies under different conditions, but in practically every instance it has been getting fifty miles an hour and with ease. We have scores of telegrams showing that twenty to twenty-five miles per gallon of gasoline is not unusual. The performance of this car is almost beyond belief. Take any other low-priced car on the market. Pit it against this new Overland. Compare them for sheer speed, for abundance of power, for riding comfort and economy, and you'll find this car will back any- thing else clean off the boards. That's a strong statement, but a fact nevertheless. Try it yourself and see. Here are more important facts. It has four-inch tires which are more than generous for a car of this size. Not only has it a large and roomy body, but it has an attractive, up-to-date streamline body. It has latest and most im- proved system of ignition. It has the cantilever the easiest riding springs in the world. What's more, it's complete. Not a thing to buy. You get the finest Auto-Lite 4 cylinder en bloc motor 3% "bore x 5" stroke 104-inch wheelbase 4-inch rear springs Streamline body Electric starter Electric speedometer Complete equipment 5-passenger touring Roadster electric starting and light- ing system, magnetic speed- ometer, one-man top, de- mountable rims and practi- cally every accessory found on the highest priced cars. From a driving standpoint, the new car is ideal. It's light, easy to handle and anyone can drive it. Take one look and be con- vinced. And mark these words the car is destined to be re- garded and referred to as one of the really great achievements of the great automobile industry. 32O 9th Street South Lethbridge, Alta.
