ROTC Volunteers Vanquish Enemy's Invasion of Boston

Basking in glory after beating an enemy invasion of Boston to a standstill in Blue Hill on Monday, Batteries A and B of the ROTC Unit licked their wounds yesterday, counted their casualties, and prepared for the next onslaught.

Armed with wooden machine guns and four munitionless 75's, the Unit, undaunted, rallied nearly 100 volunteers for a last ditch stand against the enemy troops of the Massachusetts State Guard, who had landed on Cape Cod and were advancing on the Capitol.

In a last desperate attempt to break through, the invaders threw into the melee their "panzer" division--a truck with the label "Tank" on its sides, but the nefarious machine was stopped in its tracks by a deadly burst of point-blank artillery fire.
