The receipt of the picture caus- es us to recall that the Arlington Rifle Club was organized in 1919. The rifle range was a plot-of ground west of the cemetery, ------" leased from the late M. Bircken- meier. A 600-yard range was cleared by the members, a pit was dug and target and supply tmuse built, field telephone in- stalled. The club affiliated with the National Rifle Association, and received Krag-Jorgenson rifles 'and a supply of ammunition. La- ter the members purchased their own Springfield rifles. In the match referred to by Mr. Swanson, Arlington won with a score of 681, Everett No. 1 was second with 670, Monroe third with 649, Everett No. 2 fourth with 632. Dr. Adams was high individual with a score of 142 out of a pos- sible 150. The club participated in many county, section and state shoots and at one time won the State Class B championship, at a shoot at Fort Lawton." All shooting was on the out- door range and included courses from 200 to 1,000 yards, rapid fire, slow fire, off-hand, kneel- ing, sitting, prone and with! sandbag rests at the long range, i It is recalled that in order to practice shootingat 1,000 yards, it was necessary to do some re- search, as such yardage could not be found where the safety factor was present, until it was out that every uer-Ifound that using the Oberg or- worked in employ- chard on bank of the South Fork f-employment that] (long since gone into the river) dol_-agd e and sur-] as the. firing, line, and a target on, mnce payments, has I the hHlmde across the forks of i in the social se-tAb river and the Darrington ~ram and it is his duty this investment for nd his family.

P., a distance of 1,000 yards could be had: Shooting across this valley, with its varying wind currents, pro- vided some interesting shooting experience. With a telescope, the shooters could see Chas. McQues- ten, at the target. When he got into his protected spot the shoot- er would fire. Although the tar- get was on a frame 20 ft. by 20 ~t., it took many shots to locate the target, before the shooters could beg|n moving in on the bullseye. The club turned out some good shooters and qualified several merj to attend the Camp Perry Matches in Ohio, E. C. Wheeler and Grove (Bill) Hinman being among these. The club was affiliated with anyone who knows of existing Washington caves that are large enough for a human being to have lived in. They would appreciate infor- mation on cave locations in terms of townships and ranges, if possible, and also the approxi- mate size, floor area and wheth- er the caves are wet or dry.

Payments by the VA to be ap- plied to veterans' G.I. loans. Un- iter the G.I.
