New York, Nov. 28 -- Complete historic
moving pictures of the famous Third Iowa Regiment, now the 168th U.S.
Infantry, representing Iowa in the Rainbow division, have been made by
the Universal company. One copy is to be filed in the archives of the
war department in Washington. The first public showing is reserved
exclusively for Iowa.
Col. Ernest R. Bennett and his officers and men
co-operated in a special military scenario, for the purpose of showing
their friends back home who were unable personally to visit Camp Mills
Hempstead Plains near Garden City, L.I., every angle of the daily life
and training in the school of the soldier. This is the first war in
which the American soldiers will be perpetuated in motion pictures.
Only faded still photographs of his father and grandfather remain to
picture their part in the wars of this country.
