(This is the last of a series of
Articles written by a member of the
training detachment on the history
of the first detachment.)
The officers intrusted with the re-
sponsibility of training the Universi-
y of Michigan training detachment
were assembled from many camps
and from scattered sections of the
country. Captain Ralph H. Durkee,
Infantry R. C., the commanding officer,
came to Ann Arbor from Camp Sher-
man, Chillicothe, Ohio. He is claim-
ed by Conneaut, Ohio, and Otio State
University numbers him among its
plumni.
Mlberry From Sheridan
First Lieut. Mark A. Millberry en-
tered the service in time to train at
the second camp at Fort Sheridan,
from his home at Oconto, Wis. He
was sent to Camp Zachary Taylor for
duty with the 335th infantry regiment
and spent several weeks in the camp
personnel office. He was assigned to
Ann Arbor from there.
Second Lieut. Frank Godfrey at-
tende the first camp at Fort Sher-
idan and from there was assigned to
duty with the 86th division at Camp
Grant, Ill. His home city is Edwards-
yille, 111.
Second Lieut. Charles H. Hall left
a large law practice at Portage, Wis.,
to enter the second Fort Sheridan
camp, whence he was assigned to
Camp Grant with the 86th division. He
came to Ann Arbor from there.
Major Peterson Experienced
Major Reuben Peterson, M. R. C.,
asigned to the detachment when it
was organized as medical officer, took
his place in the life of the organiza-
tion as more than a senior in rank
and years to the others. He has been
as a father, to whom problems of
every nature were brought and his
counsel went far toward the success
of the work. Owing to the multiplic-
ity of his duties as medical aide on the
staff of the governor of Michigan, he
was afterward relieved from the duties
in conection with the detachment.
Major Peterson has been for many
years a member of the University of
Michigan medical faculty and one of
the most noted surgeons of the middle
west.
Last Officer Here
The last officer to report for duty
with the first detachment was the
medical officer who relived Major Pet-
erson, First Lieut. Grover C. English,
M. R. C. Lieutenant English is a
southerner, insisting that God's coun-
try is comewhere in the vicinity of
Mt. Pleasant, Tenn. He went to Camp
Greenleaf, Oglethorpe, Ga., later at-
tended the school of military hygiene
at Chickamauga Park, took a course
in surgery at Cleveland and before
coming to Ann Arbor was assigned to
dity at the Base hospital, Camp Cust-
Welcomed By City
One factor of the training course
which went far to make the experi-
tnent a success was the attitude of
the city of Ann Arbor and the stu-
dent body and faculty toward the men,
They were received as American sold-
iers should be received, welcomed and
pmade to feel that they were a part of
the University colony. They were in-
vited to the worth while activities in-
cident to college life and given every

chance in many ways to learn the
meaning of genuine student life. When

the men departed to take their places
in the great organization which has
the German kaiser under treatment,
they took with them the good willand
Godspeed of all of the Ann Arbor
folks.
Will Make Good
They came as citizens and went
as soldiers, with a thorough under-
standing of what is expected of them.
They went straight, clear of eye, thor-
oughly drilled and gazing into the
future with a confident smile. They
will make good and return, bearing
the thing they went after and their
Alma Mater, the army of the United
States, will be proud of them.

And keep them humming
And give hell to the kaiser-

Members of the first training

Cross chapters of the various

"After a long and tedious, but

Big Feed
"We stopped at William

New Quarters
"We arrived at camp and we
