SOME OF THE HISTORY
Were Many Viiiton and the Armory
Building la a Monument to Its
Efficiency Something of the
Heroes of War.
The members of th Houston Light Guard
bad an Interesting- and well attended meeting
In their armory last night. It was the an-
nual meeting and wai presided over by Cap-
tain Dallas J. Matthew. A feature of lt
was the report of Lieutenant Clark C. Wren
chairman of the committee to revise the con-
stitution and by-laws. It contained several
changes some of which were discussed but
all finally adopted. The changes were de-
cided Improvements upon some "of the old
One feature was the curtailment of the
eligibility of applicants for passive member-
ship. It Is now confined to married men
men over 30 years of age and those who
have served out an enlistment In the Texas
National Guard. Only these can enjoy the
privileges of the building with the library
the billiards pool and other games which
with the commodious rooms and luxurious
furnishings of a first-class club house. Th
report also approved of a standing commit-
tee of three members to pass upon applicants
for membership of the company to be ap-
pointed by the captain.
It laid spec ial stress uopn the rigid enforce-
ment of all rules applying to the prtvjlege
of enjoying the membership.
THE ANNUAL REPORTS.
Captain Matthews made his annual rrtpoft
and It showed a much better condition than
The reports of Secretary Callie Blake th
business manager and of Lieutenant W J.
Hyde. In charge of the buffet of the com-
pany. The latter showed that It had done
more than meet expenses. The captain an-
nouncer1 that the directors would take hold
of cases where bark dues existed and clear
up the financial status nf the company with
its members to start the new year wdth a
clean slate. The reports were all adopted
The captain stated that he would soon
name the standing committee on member-
ship also appoint the secretary. The officers
were then voted upon and it resulted tn the
unanimous choice of the same ones Captain
Dallas J. Matthews: first lieutenant. Clark
C Wren second lieutenant. W. J. Hyde.
The members took a lively Interest In the
meeting and the outlook seems bright for
the year 19t There are several applications
for membership on tile to receive the early
attention of the committee.
All the rooms of the third floor constituting
the armory were thrown open and fully
lighted This presented the comforts and
conven'ences of the building in a very at-
ABOUT THE OLD DATS.
A few of the older members were on hand
ai d enjoyed reminiscent stories of the days
when company competitive drills were pop-
ular and this organization was winning In-
t erst ate prizes that is against companies
from many 8tates of the I'nlon. The com-
paiiv m those days had numerically a strong-
er membership than It has now. This was
In the early '80s.
SOME BRILLIANT VICTORIES
The re. ords of the company show that It
has wun about eleven first prizes and three
second the latter In Its early drills. After
the year 1KHJ It was never defeated and had
several first prize winn ngs In the seventies
All told the company won In cash purses

the erection of the handsome brick building
