Page Four ti ‘4 «». Line jumpers beat commissary crowds Twice each month Ft. Hood is the scene of a phenomenon that tries the endurance and patience of both military and dependents. We’re speaking of the seemingly never ending lines at all post facilities on pay days. A recent Saturday morning was no exception at the main commissary as along line of families waited for the doors of the store to open so that they could add to their depleted pantry shelves. Perhaps the only major dif- ference that morning was the weather providing a steady downpour that caused the entrance line to snake its way through the twists and turns of the maze-like en- trance to the store. Most patrons arriving at the commissary seemed to cr- inge as they viewed the twisting seemingly never-ending line. Few turned around and went home. Maybe patience is part of the makeup of a military family at least for most families. Yet there is still the small minority of individuals who felt they were exempt from progres...

Friday February 7 1975 By JERRY REED SPORTS EDITOR rh a the t. Hood Tankers didn’t have their Wheaties. Could be they didn’t get their minimum daily re- quirements or maybe they simply ran out of One-A-Day vitamins. By J.A. Lowe Herman J. Vetort is a hard man to pin down. As Randy Sopko found out he’s also a hard man to slip something by like a handball. Vetort and Sopko squared off against each other last Friday for the men’s handball singles championship and when the little black ball stopped bounc- ing Vetort was champion of the 2nd Armd. Div. for the second year in a row. It didn’t start out that way. The opponents were to play a best two-out-of-three match and in short order Sopko opended a 10-2 lead over the defending champion. The strain of such accelerated playing began to tell on the challenger as Vetort battled back taking the score to 4-10 6-12 and in a burst of vicious shots scored six straight points to tie it up at 12 all. Sopko showing a growing fatigue begin to “padd...

Page Twelve Sports “Honest E d” wins By JERRY “PORKER” REED SAN ANTONIO Ed Messbarger is the type of guy that would walk twenty miles to return a nickel confess to chopping down a cherry tree or wear a short-sleeve shirt during a final exam. Had Diogenes ever met Ed Messbarger he would have turned out his latern along time ago. Indeed he would have found an honest man. “Honest Ed” is also considerate. He’d be the first guy to fling his coat over a mud-puddle for some young maiden help an old lady across the street or invite his mother-in-law to dinner. Yessiree the head basketball coach at St. Mary’s University is quite a guy. People respect this gentleman who has a world-wide reputation of being a first-class in- dividual. You can see why Tanker coach Willie Jones was im- pressed even honored by Ed Messbarger’s appearance after his team’s game with the St. Mary’s Junior Varsity. “He’s got perhaps the best basketball program I’ve seen” noted Jones adding “he’s so organized and ever-...

This way you’ll have the answers the next time someone questions your decision to reenlist. "They’ll promise you anything to get yon to reenlist." That’s a big one. You hear it all the time.

.Friday February 14 1975 By J. A. LOWE The average person when asked a ques- tion about some fact or statistic usually needs a split-second or two to think of the answer. The “uh” or “mmm” you hear from some people is just a sound made to fill in the time until the answer clicks into place. “How old is your little girl?” “Ooh about two years.” “How long have you been married?” “Let’s see...nearly four years now. It’s a perfectly normal habit. But there is a question that a medium sized computer couldn’t give you an answer to any faster. That question is “How short are you?” “I get out June 13 that’s five months six days and nearly four hours from now.” That may seem like an exaggeration but there was a cook at Ft. Leonard Wood who every morning when he put on afresh paper hat marked in large numbers on the side how many days he had left. When last seen he had 201 to go. Some soldiers are so hyped up about getting out that when you ask them how long they’ve been in they answer “Four ...

Page Four $ New commissary offers patrons much Within the next week the new spacious commissary located at the intersection of Clear Creek Road and the Old Copperas Cove Road will be opening at Ft. Hood. An era of the old will end. The post 's new commissary is still shooting for a Tues- day Feb. 18th opening. When this new food store of the Army’s active and retired personnel not to mention the guard and reserve while on active duty opens it will be witness to fewer of the problems associated with the pre- sently used facility. Instead of being greeted by a long seemingly unending line upon arriving for shopping a family should find no one waiting. At least at the front door. With 350 shopping baskets available to patrons according to one employee more than enough to jam the aisles of the post ’s old main commissary shopping should be a little more easily ac- complished. That is if you discount the possible freeway type traffic jams likely to occur occassionally &t various loca...
