Page Eight-A 145 MOS test Attention to Orders Sgt. John L. Bowie 1st Bn. 5th Cav. 1st Cav. Div. has re- ceived a Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) evaluation test score equaled to or ex- ceed in the highest score made by any other soldier in the Army tested in his primary MOS during the 1974 testing period. Bowie who is back in the Army after eight previous years of active duty and a five- year stint as a civilian scored 145 out of a possible 160 in the MOS 11 Hotel 40 Infantry Direct ire Crewman just prior to its being reclassified to 11 Bravo-Light Weapons In- fantryman. Scoring high on an MOS test is nothing new to Bowie and dates back to when he was pre- viously on active duty. Back when the Army was rewarding soldiers $30 extra a month as Special Performance Pay or “Pro ay.” When Bowie first became eligible to take an MOS test he missed drawing the ‘‘pro pay” by one point. From that test period on his scores increased and reached a high of 122 prior to getting out in 1968. ...

Div. has a very dis- modular design Air Cavalry troopers of the 2d Bde. 1st Cav. Div. have moved to the suburbs on the North East side of Ft. Hood. The 4th Sqdn. 9th Cav. and 7th Sqdn. 17th Cav. have already set up housekeeping in the new area. Ideally located near Ft. Hood Army Airfield the new troop housing area is a radical departure from the World War II-type barracks. Designed as contemporary condominium type units em- phasis is on increased privacy and individual comfort. The brigade-size area has the hous- ing clusters arranged in eye appealing irregular patterns avoiding the institutional look with support buildings located in the same area. The Army lingo has changed just as radically as the area itself. The “barracks” is now a I Air Cav move into new barracks “cluster” the “floor” is a “module” and the “troop area” is a “complex”.

Gadsden admitted getting the idea for the project over the Christmas holidays. He saw a small toy swing on sale for $30 and figured “If that miniature was worth that much an en- tire city would be priceless.” All of his spare time is devot- ed to this project working on his pool table Gadsden com- pletes one part at a time and packs away the completed parts until the time that the whole city can be displayed.

Friday January 31 1975 BY JERRY REED SPORTS EDITOR Sherman Leath has it rough. Like Rodney Daingerfield and Aretha Franklin Leath wants some respect. You see most people don’t take the pint-size Ft. Hood guard very seriously. Most think he’s still limited to Walt Disney flicks and soda pop. Heck he can’t even get a beer without being carded. The baby-faced eager is just a victim of circumstances. He just doesn’t look that old and is icky ey -b ild doesn’t help matters either. Actually Sherman Leath is a bona-fide adult. He can stay up past ten o’clock he can cast a vote and he can even shave. N e S rm a eath doesn’t get much respect but things are changing.

Page Two-B Sports Bartkowski: that’s Polish BY JERRY “PORKER” REED And then there was the Polock football player that thought that double coverage was a halter top. Meet Steve Bartkowski the National Footbal League’s number one draft choice for 1975. Bartkowski that’s right it’s Polish but nobody’s making fun of this dude. He could be the best college quarterback around and that’s no joke. You can forget about all these wisecracks he’s great! The Atlanta Falcons think so. He’s got all the qualifications. During the 1974 season the 6’4” 215-pound quarterback used his powerful rifle- arm to complete 182 of 325 passes for the University of California breaking Craig Morton’s school record. His passes accounted for 2580 yards and 12 touchdowns while yielding only seven interceptions. I guess it’s only fitting that the NFL’s biggest joke in 1974 the Falcons would get this big Polock. Let’s face it they haven’t had a good quarterback since Sherman made his infamous “March To The Sea” Bartk...

VOL. 33. NO. 47 7 By: A.D. PITTMAN The consensus is or ought to be after a thorough study of the past and present state of blacks in America that the road traveled by them to this point has been a rough and rocky one. The origin of the Black race is a highly mysterious one the bloodline traceable to the days of the Great Flood in the Old Testament. The Book of Genesis tells the story in Chapter Nine Verse 18 in the account that follows: And the sons of Noah that went forth of the ark were Shem Ham and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Ca- naan. These are the sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. And Noah began to be a husbandm an and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine and was drunken and he was uncovered within his tent. And Ham the father of Canaan saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garm ent and laid it upon both their shoulders and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father: a...

However during these past few weeks it has really outdone itself. Where else could one experience snow and 80 degree sunshine within two weeks? True strange weather phenomena occurs all over this planet of ours. It’s just that Texas has seemingly cornered them market recently. Consider this: a few days ago you could drive around the Ft. Hood-Killeen area and witness children building snowmen in their yards. Last weekend the picture was one of yardw ork washing a rs and generally those outdoor activities a s- sociated with summertime.

I Friday February 7 1975 S (Continued from page 1) Many units received the Presidential Citation for bravery and there were many individual heroes. On Dec. 7 1941 when Pearl Harbor was attacked a Navy messman aboard the U.S. S. Arizona named Dorrie Miller was busy below collecting laundry. When the bombs landed on the ship Dorrie Miller went topside and pulled the wounded captain to safety. He seized an anti-aircraft gun that was not manned and firing at oncoming Japanese planes downed four Zeros. Miller a black sailor received the Silver Star in 1942 from Fleet Ad- miral Chester Nimitz and later went down with his ship Liscome Bay in 1944 when it was sunk. He was only one of the more than one million black men who served in World War II. During World War II a flying school was opened at Tuskegee Institue in Ala. Among its first graduates were George S. Roberts C.H. DeBow Mac Ross L.R. Curtis and Benjamin O. Davis Jr. later commander of the 332nd Fighter Group. Davis became the high...
