Believe me, it 'Uidn't take long to get them ac-yuainted with these tricks. In just U.months there were 40,000 more boys who could use their fists as a. TiBSult of having taken military training at Yapkank. It is generally admitted that the .man who knows a few boxing tricks ^fiecomes a great bayonet fighter. Using a bayonet then comes naturally to the fighting man. A lot of .my pupils are giving good accounts kit'themselves in prodding the Huns .tonck to Berlin.
