Captain E. H. Conklin, Company 32, Santa Maria, reports that his company is not in the very best of condition just at the present time, for the reason that a short time ago a letter was written to the Adjutant-General of our State in reference to prospects of getting arms and equipment. The reply was very discouraging, and many of the boys who had spent a great deal of time dropped out, inviting until such time as our State officials will give them the recognition that their work is entitled to. Capt. Conklin further stated that "I am willing to do anything for the betterment of conditions, and I am holding the men together waiting for favorable decision from the powers that be."
