It is planned to devote a portion of
the money whicli will be realized from
tlie sale of tickets for tlie coming mili
tary ball to the purchase of a complete
and up-to-date equipment for the large
and splendid room in the basement ot
the new armory, which is intended to
ba used as it gymnasium. While the
room is not quite as large as Ulie pro
posed gymnasium in the new Young
Men's Christlnn association building, it
is being planned to equip it just as
thoroughly. Its use, of course, will be
strictly limited to the members of the
regiment, as will the use of all the
other features which will make tlie
basement of the new armory the most
sought-after place In the whole build
ing. These include the larg? swimming
pool, ThxHO feet in size, which is now
being constructed and which will be
jeady for use as soon as the armory
Is opened. In conjunction wlth this
there will be a ssries of shower baths.
The one hundred yard rifle range, run
ning in a tunnel underneath the wliole
length of the Ui 111 hall, will be an
other attractive feature. Tt was origi
nally intended to combine the rlllc
range and the two bowling- alleys
which are to lie constructed, but the
latest plan is to erect the alleys In a
separate frame building adjoining the
armory on tlie .northerly side. This
will probably be catried out, as It is
not considered feasible to combine tlie
