Battle Creek, Dec. 18.-Due to the
lack of proper sizes in clothing that
i7 stored in the quartermaster's ware-
house, many men here are excluded.
from outside drillwork and others are
still wearing the civilian clothing
which they brought to camp.
The Red Cross has furnished gar-
ments for a considerable number of
soldiers. There are even a few cases
on file where two men are using the
same clothing to drill, one using the
clothes in the morning and his "bun-
kie" donning them in the afternoon.
Although this state of affairs has
long been realized by men familiar
with Camp Custer, divisional officers
have not, heretofore, given the facts
out for publication, since the fault!
lies not with Custer authorities', but
with men higher up.
Large Sizes At a Premium
The chief trouble with the unfor-
tunate conditions is that large sizes
seem to be at a premium while the
warehouse shelves are loaded down
with shoes, coats, blouses, and socks
which are in such small sizes that
they can not be used at present.
The quartermaster has no shoes
on hand larger than 8%. Of sizes
smaller than 8/ there are about 10,-
000 pairs on the shelves. A large ma-
jority of the Custer men wear shoes.
ranging in size from 9 to 12. Many
of these men can not attend drill, or-
ders having been given to allow no
one without proper footwear to work
Small Siues Plentiful
The same lack of large sized over-
coats and service coats is apparent,
but the quartermaster has plenty of
these garments in small sizes.
These incomplete equipments are
causing a serious delay in the practice
and drill work of the new men at
the camp since, as a means of preven-
tion of illness, no Custer man is per-
mitted on the field unless he is well
