With Uncle Sam At
Anchorage,
Alask
A
NCHORAGE, ALASKA, is one
of the most desirable stations inthe entire United States Army.The city, which is located on the Government Railroad at the head of Cook Inlet,has about 2,000 inhabitants. Here thereare well appointed business houses of allkinds where one may purchase anythingthat can be obtained in the States
;
twoexcellent hotels, steam heated, with goo.lrooms and service; and, among otherthings, an excellent motion picture theaterwhere one can see the same pictures thatare shown in the best houses in the UnitedStates, though somewhat later becauseof the great distance intervening.Good automobile roads, over which it ipossible to drive practically the entireyear, radiate from *he city. A morningand an evening newspaper publish thenews not many hours later than it appearsin the States. Mail service is weekly.Many civic lodges and clubs are represented by flourishing posts, such as theAmerican Legion, Masons, Odd Fellows,Shriners, Knights Templar and Elks.There is no regular post for the UnitedStates troops, who occupy buildings belonging to the Alaska Railroad. Theseare better constructed than many of thbarracks.inthe States
;
steam heat and ho'water for shower baths, etc., are suppliedby the railroad power plant without anylabor on the part of the troops. N<.quarters are available for either officers ornon-commissioned officers, so those entitled to quarters draw commutation andrent houses or apartments in the city.There are a number of modern and comfortable apartment houses, and if onedocs not wish to live in an apartment it isusually possible to obtain a suitable house.During the summer months much timeis spent in range work, the rifle rangebeing only about four hundred yards fromthe barracks. There is no opportunity formaneuvers of large bodies of troops asonly one company is stationed at Anchorage at present. Summer tactical trainingincludes scouting and patrolling, smal,problems in minor tactics, and practice

marches. Fro rn N o v e m b e r 1 toApril 1 practically all training, with theexception of short practice marches, isconducted indoors. The gymnasium isused for drill, bayonet practice and athletics, and the bowling alley for gallerypractice. Post schools for officers andnon-commissioned officers are held fromOctober 1 to May 1, and the E. and R.schools for stenographers, carpenters, machinists, cooks and bakers, during thesame period.As compared with other posts there isvery little fatigue. Unloading great quantities of sacked coal is unknown at Anchorage. The largest job is cutting thewinter wood supply and the summer ice-supply.There is probably no other station ofthe Army where big game is so plentifuland close at hand as at Anchorage. Themoose of Kenai Peninsula are the largestin the world, specimens with an antlerspread of more than six feet having beenkilled. The Alaskan brown bear is thelargest of his species in the world, andhas a bad reputation for ferocity. Thisanimal is found near Anchorage, but imore plentiful, and also much largerfurther down the Inlet.Chinita Bay is the favorite locality forhunting parties of soldiersfromAnchorage.Both the brown bear and the black bearare hunted in the spring, the black bearespecially for its thick, glossy fur. Mountain sheep and goats are found in practically all the mountains of Alaska.Several parties from Anchorage have obtained both sheep and goats on week-endhunts, but ordinarily it requires more timethan this, with quite a lot of climbingto get at either. Caribou are not foundin this section; in the Broad Pass districtand farther north they cross the railroadin their annual migration in such largenumbers that there is little sport in killing them. The deer of SoutheasternAlaska, the wolf of the interior and thepolar bear of the Bering Sea and ArcticOcean are not found at Anchorage.Small game abounds in the district.The snowshoe rabbit, which is white inwinter and brown or gray in summer, isso numerous that it is not regarded asgame. The ptarmigan, which also changescolor with the seasons, is plentiful. Several hundred were killed last October inthe railroad yards, many of them withinthe troop area. At times they are so thickin certain places in the hills that it ispossible to kill them with sticks andstones. Ducks and geese are found ingreat numbers on the tide flats andmarshes, and it is common for partiesto bring back the limit of twenty-fivebirds per man. Grouse, or spruce hens,are also very common, but not so commonas other game.Game fish abound in most of thestreams, and fishing is much indulged in.Willow Creek, reached by the AlaskaRailroad, is perhaps the best of the fishingstreams, rainbow trout weighing up to sixpounds having been caught there. Thegrayling, an Alaskan fish almost as gameas the rainbow trout, is caught there, andalso in Little Willow Creek, about threemiles north of Willow Creek. Rainbowand mountain trout are caught in Campbell Creek,' Fish Creek, Knik Lake andFire Lake, which are nearer to the post.Salmon ascend the streams in countlessthousands in the summer, to spawn, butare not classed as game fish. Large numbers are canned for commercial use, andmany are dried for dog food by the natives,as well as for human consumption.A liberal policy is in effect with regardto hunting passes and leaves. While stationed at Anchorage the soldier or officer may have his fill of hunting and fishing. During the two year tour everyonewho so desires can procure specimens ofall the big game, and will be able to fillin the time between his big game hunts
