WILEY DELBERT FREEBURGER Wiley Delbert Freeberger. son of W. C. Freeberfe'cr. a prominent merchant of Enchant, has received special honors at Hill Military Academy, Portland. Ore., where he Is lattendlng school. The young man has* been appointed trumpeter of the military academy and received his detail to the staff of the cadet corps at a special patriotic ceremony last week at the acadeihy. During the recent Liberty loan rallies young Mr. Freeberger was one of the official buglers, acting at the request of the official Liberty loan committee. Each day the young cadet took his place in the balcony of the Liberty temple and sojtnded forth the call for the patriotic meetings. During this campaign when about ?2o,000,000 was raised for the war work of the Allies several Canadian and British army officers who ha,d been in service In the front line trenches gave inspiring addresses that greatly influenced the Oregonians to give liberally. The spirit of patriotism is encouraged in the Hill school. Many Canadian officers gave addresses to the cadets at the half hour patriotic exercises that are a feature at the school each day. The boys recently were addressed by the repre-sentativis of the British-Canadian recruiting mission. So greatly were tho visitors impressed with the good work being done by the cadets that they presented the school with a handsome Union Jack which now la one of the cherished possessions of the school. The presentation was made at an impressive ceremony at which the boys sang American and English songs. Young Mr. Freeberger received his honor because of application to studies, excellence in drill and good deportment. He is doing so well that he will be in line for office next semester. Several other Canadian boys are attending the school and are making gppd records. Hill Military Academy has several graduates who are officers in the Can-a'dfSn and English armies and who now are at the front. Xew Haven. -The "crawl" baa been adopted as the uniform stroke for universal instruction in swimming classes in the naval training station.^, Walter Camp, general athletic commissioner of tlio navy department commission on training camp activltleo, has announced in making public a simple course af swimming lessons which he has de-ylsod as a ptirt of his plan to teach the aquatic art to every sailor in tho navy camps. Two drills are Included in Commissioner Camp's course; the land drill ! and the wpter drill, respectively. In both, he says, tho "crawl" should be taught as he has found It to be the most satiafactorj- for the development of swimmers. He also makes it clear that there Is no departure from this routine until all have thoroughly learned how to swim. Land Drill to Learn Stroke. . The land drill is mainly to train the men in the proper way to stroke. It consists of standing erect, heels together and with arms sideways at sides. Raise arms to level with shoulders and then bend them forward from elbows to right angle with upper arm, bringing left arm sharply down to the thigh. When this point is reached jthe right arm describes the same movement, while the left arm la carried upward and sideways until it reaches a position at right angles with the shoulder when the stroke is completed. The right arm stroke is exactly the same. Continuity of action Is vital. . Entar Shallow Water. Iii^the water drill the pupils enter shalTov.' water. Each man assumes a horizontal poeition, face downwards, his hands'supporting him. The legs are held as near the 8Urfa",e of the water as possible and not mora than four inches apart. The legs mu�t have free action from the hips and should alternate continuously In- quick shallow kickfl. After mastering the leg movement the pupils are grouped into teams of two. The first man grasps his partner about the hips,'-giving hln^ the nocossary support while tho leg and arm actions are used together. At the conclusion of a reasonable period the teams ehitt positions. Commissioner 'Camp points out that the drills are as easily adapted to the instructions of civilians as. sailors and that a lev/ lessons should make every manund woman, lor that mat ter, an ab!_9 swimmer.
