"The women suffrage advocates have established headquarters near the camp. They have a tent and on a big bulletin board have printed a request to the men in camp to vote for the woman suffrage amendment in November.
While bathing in Lake Champlain yesterday Sergeants Wall and Stilson of the New York police force noticed that something that was not rain was falling about them. In front of them was a squad of recruits at sub-calibre practice using .22 calibre ammunition. Some of the recruits were missing the bank of earth against which the targets were posted and the bullets were playing hide and seek around the policemen. Wall and Stilson did not prolong their bath."

Стреляли новобранцы, скорее всего, из тренировочной винтовки Хоффера-Томпсона, того, что позднее сделал свой "томми-ган". Повезло, в общем.
