Friday January 17 1975 HE’S IN THERE Ft. Hood’s unlisted boxer Roy Brown (right) makes a person-to-person call to his op- ponent Ray Baker last Thursday night in Austin. By JERRY REED SPORTS EDITOR Roy Brown subscribes to the old adage “don’t call me I’ll call you.” Apparently his op- ponents are taking heed 4 because his phone doesn’t ring very often. Could be most people don’t know who he really is. He may be the only boxer on the Ft. Hood team with an unlisted number. There seems to be som problem ais to his idenity. “My name is Roy not Ray” protested Brown prior to his bout last Thursday night in A ustin. By the tim the Walterberg S.C. native had finished off Ray Baker from the Seguin Boxing Club in three rounds there was little doubt who he was. Evidently someone goofed when they made up the pro- gram for the annual Bronze Gloves Tournament held at the South A ustin ecreation Center Thursday past. Here’s what happened: Roy’s name was printed as Ray thus causing confusion. Brown...

t. Friday Jintiary 17 1975 Inspection has new look By J. A. LOWE AGI/ORI. These six letters herald one of the most thorough inspec- tions and operational check- outs in the Army. The letters stand for Annual General Inspection and Operational Readiness Inspection and every unit in the 2nd Armd. Div. discovers at least once a year what it entails. As many company and bat- talion commanders will attest this inspection might be the most exacting and precise of its kind anywhere. A number of men totaling almost 60 are taken from divisional units by the Inspector General (IG) to help perform the operation. Men from G-l G-2 G-3 and G4 work on the operation. The Ad- jutant General Division Surgeon Division Transporta- tion and Aviation sections con- tribute some of the inspection force as do Division Main- tenance Assistance Team (DMAT) and the Provost Marshal. Only recently the inspection took on anew aspect. An in- spection of air-loading capabilities and procedure was added. This was do...

age Four-A Humorous drunks really aren’t funny Remember when W.C. Fields was staggering across the flickering screenJoaded to the gills with alcoholic beverages and bringing forth raucous bursts of laughter from movie-goers everywhere? If not then maybe the memory of a well known come- dian on the television screen is still sharp in the old memory banks. He was if his press agents and stage performances are to be believed in a constant state of in- ebriation to some degree or another. And this was to most considered hilarious. Well maybe it is hilarious if the people are only acting and the booze is nothing more than colored water or tea. Otherwise we fail to see the humor in a condition that often results in broken homes sickness and even death. Alcoholism the theme of this week’s SENTINEL is a disease and is much like a common cold only in that it has never been the target of an absolute cure. Having discussed the disease with a pair of alcoholics who no longer drink (once an alco...

jPage Six-A The first interview was with a Sergeant First Class. He is 36 years old and presently divorced as a result of his battle with alcohol abuse. Throughout the interview he will be referred to as Tom. “It was in 1972 that I first realized I was an alcoholic” Tom began the deep lines in his brow and chin casting an image of age much greater than his 36 years. “I had been a hard core alcoholic since 19691 guess. I had become a maintenance drinker in that I drank not to feel good or get high but to feel better.” Asked to explain what was meant by “feel better” rather than to feel good Tom continued “Well it’s like this without drinking I felt bad. I needed a drink to get rid of the shakes. “I knew I had a problem but I couldn’t do anything about it. I was addicted both physically and psychologically to alcohol. “My divorce was directly related to alcohol. My wife just couldn’t take any more of my drinking.
