"SUICIDE CLUBS" COMPETE FOR HONORS ON THE 319TH DRILL GROUNDS Machine gunners of the 320th Machine Gun Company--winners of the contest. They're not a talkative bunch, but shootative is no name for it. Officers watching a gunner place a rapid firer in position. The object of the hole is to provide a place for the enemies' bullets to fly over. M.G Start of the competition. Teams lined up, waiting for the whistle to blow them into the contest. Ready to mow 'em down. The only thing lacking is 'em.
