a Four-B £f Sports •Barry in “Switzerland” By JERRY REED It was a simple act by an unassuming man which touched an enormous circle of people indeed an entire country. The act—going undefeated in his first year. The tnan—Barry Switzer head football coach at the Univer- sity of Oklahoma. I Last year Switzer and his team had to keep the bot- •Jles corked. They couldn’t celebrate a national cham- pionship but they came close. This is anew year and at season’s end they hope to throw a celebration that would make one of Liz and Richard’s affairs look like a tocktail party. Switzer is the main reason why the Sooners are so hopeful. Some say of Barry “He never meta team he didn’t like (to beat)”. People are waiting for an encore jrnd Switzer is busy preparing for a real show-stopper. Last Saturday the Sooners finished up their spring drills and are looking good. All indications reveal that Ihe University of Oklahoma will be challenging not only for the Big-8 crown but national championship....

The “Redlegs” will soon be trading in their five-ton trucks for the new versatile GOERS which first arrived at Ft. Hood last Sept. after previous tests in Veitnam and at Ft. Knox Ky. Under the guidance of in- structors from 1st Bn. 67th Arm. and 124th Maint. Bn. the ivA rty tro were in troduced to the handling and characteristics of the goers.

Page Eighl-B By CHRIS MENEFEE Last month the 2nd Armd. Div. signed up more than two and one half as many first- time reenlistees as its quota than the Dept of the Army required. Every month since August 1973 the Division has surpassed its quota and has usually lead all other Forces a (F O S O divisions. “This may sound like an old line” explained Cpt. James Plemmons Div. Reenl. Off. “but the honesty of our NCOs at every level has helped us tremendously. They tell a man exactly what options he has available no promises are made that can ’t be kept. At the company level we usually have NCOs who are very young and who often are chosen right out of the sam company. These men can relate to and com- municate with young soldiers. “Because of our NCOs and pther reasons 65 to 75 per cent of the men we reenlist chose to remain here.
