CHANGE OF GUARD
SYSTEM AT LOGAN
Colonel John Y. Qinnin Re-Organized
Divided Csmp Into Three Zonei and
Revised Flan for Signalling: for

cnei jonn v. uiinnin commanaing ins
trafns of the 33d division has demonstrat-
ed hla ability consistently alnca tha or-
- ' ganliatlOD of the Prairie division. Of tba
duties which he haa efficiently performed
t ' tha reorganisation of the guard at Camp
'-Logan la among tha most recent.
atatlon waa subject to more or Iesa confu-
7 aion. owing to the duplication of numbers
designating' the varloua sentry posts and
. A call for the corporal of the guard from
a post located in the outer confines of the
. Camp waa sometimes tbe cause of irrltat-
'.' ' ing delay arising from misunderstanding
aa to the precise looatlou of the post send-
ing: out the call.
For some time plans were under consid-
eration to simplify the guard system but
Owing to the pressure ot multitudinous
. details demanding quick solution the
rhnn.. In tha i'i i si rrl vstAm was neces
' ." mediate relief became imperative. The
V natter was put up to Colonel Clinnln who
was considered the best man for the Job
and who worked the problem out to the
aatiaraction 01 uenerai xoaa ana 10 (ne

Vtpi at CarotlXogaii general lr.r ; rs A
. tnrae sonea doing away witn uia lormer
system of duplication of numbers and re-
ducing to the simplest terms tha theory
0( efficient guard service.
Now a call received from any one of
the numerous posts within tho three zones
automatically Informs tne officers on duty
t guard headquarters of the exact loca-
tlon of the sentry sending In the call. It
also informs the sub-guard posts within
tha zone what particular sentry is asking
for the officer of the guard.
The working of the system Is obviously
a matter concerning tho military admin-
istration of the eaniD alone and is. there
fore not a matter for detailed description.
So efficient hns the new system proven
that the camp fire department nas adopt-
ed the system with resultant increased ef-
ficiency. The system ns adopted has been
accurately mapped and blue-printed and
officially recognised as the most efficient
sample of organising skill as applied to a
complex guard system or a nig camp that
baa occurred at this particular station.

Appeal From British
- Recruiting Mission
The British and Cangdlan recruiting
mission with its headquarters in tho Do
George Hotel building at HIS Preston
avenue publish the following strong .ap
peal to aU Britishers for Immediate n
"Britishers yon are needed nowl Tho
time 'has come for you to decide this mo-
mentous question for yourself; you can
not hold back any longer. Your country
' Is righting with its back to the wall
you ought to give' your last drop of blood.
lit necessary for your mother land.
. That the need Is great for manpower
Is evidenced by the fact that both Premier
Lloyd George and Earl Curson In recent
speeches stress the fact that a straka
greater than any heretofore 1s about to
. ua iuiu on me onitBii huh d rcnuil ui-
fenslve and the premier says "I bavd
just returned from hYance where tho gen-
erals lell -me that silent preparations are
' going on for perhaps the biggest blow of
the war. These things are happening
. now. They are asking me for help. : I
nave Drougm nome a list or tne things
they want done and I beg of you for
our common cause; the fate of which Is
In the balance now and will be for an
Indeterminate time to come."
i Said Earl Curzon: "Grave tlmea are
ahead and British soldiers may have to
give ground.' There is encouragement to
be found In the unity of command In
America's effort and in the resolute in-
domitable spirit of the British people
nevertheless it behooves us to be pre-
. pared to meet every exigency there is
.' only one thing we can not afford to lose
and that Is the war."
Britishers how can you hesitate any
. longer? Enlist and now In the Canadian
1 .overseas service. There la no long walt-
. lug. In not more than six weeks after
you reach Canada you will be on ybur way
'"over there." Tho secretary of the British-Canadian
recruiting mission at the

you all desired Information.
