We commenced on a now schedule
of drills the past week ending March
23. The most interesting was the gas
mask drill. It is a question of how
many would be dead, as the time given
to get them on is six seconds, at
the end of which if they are not on
we are pronounced "dead." (Of
course, this is figurative in drills, but
only too true In a region pervaded by
s the poisonous gases used "over

much alive when we get there.
