Howard Cosell did a network radio show the day before he was to visit Clay in the Fifth Street Gym where he trained. In it he described what Liston would do to him and how he was trying to cover with a youthful braggadocio that would vanish when he stepped into the ring. This was Clay’s rebuttle: Bet on Sonny Loose your money. Float like a butterfly Sting like a bee Bet your money Bet on me. Then he turned to Cosell and asked “What do you think this time? What do you think is gonna happen to the Big Black Bear this time?” Howard replied “I still think he can beat you.” He was stunned. “You what? Your kidding? You must be kidding.

The a a a FORT HOOD SENTINEL “PUBLISHED IN THE INTEREST OF THE PERSONNEL OF FORT HOOD’' FORT HOOD TEXAS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 8 1974 /f/SSINV^" N VW There is something on an Army post that triggers a sixth sense when a promotion list is about to be announ- ced. Knowing when a list is due seems to be as much an instinct for the professional soldier as is that special sense that warns Canadian geese that they must fly south as winter approaches. Career soldiers know. They know of the ecstasy and the agony in each list. Winners and losers. For some joy bet- ter described as astonishment. For others dismay born of denial. But all ask how can I get promoted? Promotion boards are instructed to consider the whole man as they review each file. Within this evaluation con- cept five areas are clearly shaped by the soldier who in- tends to strive for additional promotions with an eye for the top grade. Improve job test score ...

The following article was written by Spec 6 Perkins McKenzie a counselor for the Alcohol and Drug Education Section of the Directorate of Human Resources Develop- ment III Corps and Ft. Hood. I have now worked in the area of drug abuse for several months and have distinctly ob- served that the abuse of drugs tends to strip those individuals involved of an enormous degree of self respect pride individual desires and com- mitment to them selves and society. Continued and prolonged drug usage usually affects an individual to the point of deterioration. His attitude towards thiself his job and the people and things around him seems to change com- pletely. This is fine and dandy if he is in a place where there are no other people or things around im in a ilita organization like ours where there exist thousands of other people this type of attitudinal deterioation is in most cases very detrim mental to the in- dividual involved. For most troops who receive punitive action because of in- v...
