Battle Creek, Nov. 16.-Division of-
ficers are anxiously awaiting the ar-
rival of the full quota of selected men
in spite of the fact that 1.0,000 men of
the delayed increment will reach
Camp Custer Monday. The next con-
tingent will bring the division up to
only 80 per cent of its full strength.
It is thought that the division as
a whole would advance more rapidly
if all the men could start training
together, instead of having ta fill up
the ranks with green men, placing
them side by side with men who have
already had a couple months of in-
tensive training.
Negroes Leave
Three hundred negroes, members of
the depot brigade, left camp today in
a special train en route to Camp Up-
ton, Yaphank, N. Y. What will be done
with them is not known, although re-
ports point to the formation of a
negro division, in which case the re-
mainder of the negroes will be trans-
ferred from Custer. There are still
400 in the depot brigade here.
The plans for the new gymnasium
building to be erected in Custer cir-
cle by enlisted men aided by the engin-
eers, are now ready and await the ap-
proval of the board in eharge, which
meets Tuesday. The building when
finished will be the only one in camp
devoted entirely to athletic purposes
MIachine Gun Practice Begun
Machine gun target practice began
today and will probably continue
through the coming week. The men
are still engaged in the construction
of trenches and dugouts, and a large
area has been transformed into a
minature European war district.

Washington, Nov. 16.-First deliv-
eries of the new Liberty airplane mo-
tors will be made soon. A quantity
production of these is designed and re-
lied upon to furnish the means for
carrying the sky war to Germany on a
large scale.
Although the early deliveries will
be comparatively small, production
will be speeded up daily, and, with the
omingof spring, the motors will be
turned out at a rate that will allow
the United States to meet not only its
cwn requirements, but also to deliver
thousands to her allies.
Tests Being Made ,
Tests for both the army and navy
types of the motor are progressing.
and few instances are found where it
is necessary to make changes.
Both army and navy officials who
have been sceptical as to the possibil
ities of increasing the production so
as to prove a deciding factor in the
war in a short time, are now enthus-
iastic and optimistic.
