I Friday. June 13. 1975 By MIKE LIY'ERANI Zachary Taylor the 12th president of the United States had been attending a gathering at the Washington Monument that hot and humid July 4 1850 afternoon. He was in the midst of em broiling con- troversy surrounding some of the members of his cabinet. His mind was cluttered with the worries of a presidency gone sour one that he had known little about since its beginning. The North and the South were about to split over the slavery issue everything was going wrong. That and a combination of too much to eat and drink were the cause of this man’s col- lapse on the grounds of the Washington Monument and his death five days later. Zachary Taylor was born Nov. 24 1784 in Orange Coun- ty Va. the son of an officer in the A erican Revolution. Within that year his family had moved following his father’s appointment as collec- tor of the port at Louisville. What little schooling young Zachary received during the ensuing years was from the governess emp...

Friday June 13 1975 By DALE HANCOCK On June 14 1775 200 years ago tomorrow the Continental Congress created the Con- tinental Army by its first a th rizatio of tro s. Specifically Congress called for the raising of ten com- panies of riflemen to reinforce the provincial forces then lay- ing seige to Boston. The next day the Congress appointed George Washington “to command all the Continen- tal forces” and Washington accepted a day later. On June 22 Congress voted an expen- diture of $2 million to finance the new army. The final act of this prelude came two weeks later when on July 2 1775 Washington ar- rived on the outskirts of Boston to take command. He found a military force in name only more than 15000 persons of all ages drawn to seige by the frustrations of the previous decade and the emo- tionalism of the news of Lex- ington and Concord. For the st a t th re militiamen enlisted by their states only for the summer. They had little to recommend them as soldiers except the motiva...

Friday June 13 1975 Leaning against a wooden post the huge man stood apart from the mass of people. His camouflage fatigues were wrinkled from along night without rest. The tilted green beret encompassed a dark bristly face. His grainy rug- gedness contrasted deeply with the soft bundle of life he protected in his arms. To CPT Jeffery A. Boynton of 2nd Bn. 58th Inf. 2nd Armd. Div. this was the most striking memory of his three-week stay at Ft. Chaffee while participat- ing in “Operation New Ar- rival.” “To me the difference was aw esom e.

Page Four teen-A The Revolutionary War was the first major war in which the United States engaged. Out of it grew the understanding that a well-trained militia and a better fighting force were needed. Several techniques •used to train in those early 'days were taken from our 'British adversary. Now 200 years later we con- tinue to use some British train- 'ing techniques. June 5 the 1st gin. 8th Cav. 3rd (Gray Wolf) *Bde. 1st Cav.

Friday. June 13 1975 The Army’s first drill re- gulations were penned by the Army’s second Inspector General MG Frederick von Steuben during the Continen- tal Army’s traumatic winter quarters in Valley Forge. While Von S te ’s primary objective was to in- still discipline in the ragged force which had ended the 1777 summer campaign with a pair of important losses at Brandywine and Germantown his approach was especially geared to the basic needs of the suffering soldiers. Of particular significance were his “instructions” to Con- tinental officers whose first service as Von Steuben saw it was to their men not mis- sion or superiors. It is almost as though he were saying if loyalty in the chain of com- mand were to move in one direction only that direction should be from the top downward. That officer is best served who serves his men best. But let Von Steuben explain it himself in his instructions to company officers. There is far more substance here than his- torical curiosity.

Page Sixteen-A There are many strange phenomena which through the ages have gone unex- a in th a Triangle The Seven Whistlers the Headless Horseman and the Witch’s Heel. None are as strange however as the at- traction which exists between soldiers and jails. This phenomenon was noted when armies first came into ex- istance and remains today a mystery. Since this mystery cannot be explained it can only be ac- cepted and dealt with to the best of human capability. To this end Bell County with the cooperation of Ft. Hood established the Personal Recognizance Bond Program in April 1973. The program allows soldiers to be released to their units on th ir prom is to make scheduled court proceedings. The only requirement is a re- commendation from the person’s commanding officer or first sergeant. Since the maximum charge for a personal bond is $10.00 the savings to the soldier can be enormous. For example if bail were set by the court at $1000 a commercial bonding institution would charge ...

I was sure glad he decided to reenlist. “I like the life. I like the quarters we live in here on post. The medical care is certainly as good as any and probably a lot better than most. “The post schools are great too. I know because I went to them as a kid. Of course the baby’s still along way from school. But when he’s old enough for the day care centers I think I’ll go to nursing school. That way I’ll be able to work wherever Steven is stationed.

Friday. June 13. 1975 EXTRA& 3 POINTS 6 $ *1 Well scientists tell us that the dodo bird is extinct that his type hasn’t walked the earth in thousands of years. Maybe so but if you ventured out in the rain last week you might have seen a sight to make you wonder if the dodos are really all gone or if maybe one or two didn’t just sneak away someplace and change their clothes? Out on Anderson Golf Course teeing off in a driving rain (no pun intended) stood one of God’s innocent creatures: the weekend golfer. Now most golfers would have you believe that God built the world in six days and on the seventh day instead of resting He took the back nine (any nine will do) in the low 30’s. So what makes a golfer get out there and attempt to break par under the kind of weather conditions that postponed D-Day? Our raving make that roving re- porter decided to try and find out the answer to this mystery. Extra Points: “We’re talking with Jack “Hooker” Div- vot who while maybe not the best gol...
