The following is his first hand ac­ count of this novel experien­ ce. By CLEM HUGHES Strength is determined by a number of various ways and so is the strength of a military unit. A unit within the 2nd Armd. Div. recently tested its' strength from the aspect of crew proficiency.

VOL. 32 NO. 35 I By Jerry Reed If you happen to be a sports fan this is possibly the best time of the year for enjoying any of your favorite passtimes. There are so many things going on at this point of the year that there is a great amount of confusion as to what to do next. It is like being on Let's Make A Deal if you don't like the first thing that you win you can trade for what's behind door number one two or three. Which ever door or sport in this case that you choose you come out a winner in this particular incident. Texas and Ft. Hood especially has more sports ac­ tivities than Carter has little liver pills. Any sport that you may desire to watch is at hand but the problem still remains what one should do next thus creating confusion. If you're really interested being a "sports nut" is not a prerequisite there is plenty to do or to watch in this area. In recent months only the sport of football as Inside the Sentinel: has captured the headlines from coast to coast and from p...

Paee Two-A Recent issues of the Ft. Hood Sentinel have discussed housing in the Killeen-Ft. Hood area. With today's soaring costs it's increasingly difficult to find a good place to live on a modest budget. Adding to this budget strain are the high security deposits required by both landlords and utility com­ panies. Certainly there must be a reason why these costs are so high. Many times we as soldiers feel we are being taken advantage of by landlords utility companies and businesses. But we never stop to ask ourselves why they charge what seems to us as such fantastic fees and deposits. I will give but one example. Last year Southwestern Bell and Mid-Tex Telephone lost ap- prox. $70000 to military families alone in the Ft. Hood area according to a 5-CITY spokesman. To be sure landlords and businesses also suffered. Why? Because of a minority of the service members who have been stationed here. To cover these losses I'm sure that any businessman would have to increase prices or ren...

Page Four-A Gear down motor mouths action key to clean scene Ft. Hood attracts for some reason an abundance of derrogatory pseudonyms and phrases. It has been called the armpit of the Army and like referrences to the human anatomy that can't be printed in this medium. Getting back to a previous reference and keeping it polite the same soldier noted that Ft. Hood was the "seat" of the nation (again in an anatomical allusion). Well maybe it is time that the Charmin was ap­ plied to this image of the world's posterior. This month has been proclaimed as "Environmen­ tal Emphasis Month" by Lieutenant General Allen M. Burdett Jr. This gives the troopies the chance to prove that they can stow the bitching and moaning for a while and add a little positive action. It's a chance for local members to get involved in the environmental and ecological movements that will appear on post as the month progresses. Recycling all possible material is one approach for the soldier. Collect bundle and mak...

Friday November 2 1973 One of the grossest flaws in our social structure is the ab­ sence of rites of passage. The fact is that there is little or no place for kids to realize adulthood to have a respon­ sible cause to work for a "now" goal to conquer their mountains. There are few jobs available (who needs one anyhow with parents' af­ fluence?) and playing all day gets boring. The fight kids are waging for the establish­ ment to take a hard look at "itself is also filling a desperate void for kids in our social structure. The very fight itself gives them something to do away to belong to feel important. The attitudes and actions of many adults convpy the im- pression that ds from twelve through twenty are worthless worse than wor­ thless a real burden to modern families. Kids often band together to fight the establishment and thereby fill a void in their growth ex­ perience. The rebels with whom I have talked seem to be saying: "We have found a cause an idea a principle a belonging...

Friday November 2 1973 Another week is here and §e find the farcical fire fighter sound asleep on the running board of a pumper truck at the central fire station of Ft. Hood. The hero of all protectors of the flame had decided it would be more peaceful though quite a bit colder on the truck than it would be back at the flamemobile home due to the noise created by the newborn fire infant and five new firepups now residing at the domicile the flame finder. ™The week had been long and laden with fires and a good night's sleep was necessary if the scourge of the scorchers was to keep his physical and mental alertness in a constant state of. finely tuned spiritual consciousness. The week had begun with a report that smoke was pouring from the boiler room of Bldg. 1861. Gamely galloping to the scene it was discovered that the smoke was caused by a short in a furnace blower motor.

Page Fourteen-A A By WILLIE MONTZ Will SI ikespeare playwright of jolly Elizabethan England observed through one of his characters "a rose by any other name is still arose Could he have meant a foreigner no matter what the circum­ stance is still a foreigner? Who cares if a person was born to parents who are United States citizens? Holding a valid military iden­ tification card (ID) doesn't count. Nor does voting in the last national election mean much. What does count is the color of one's hair skin the shape of one's eyes and don't laugh the size of one's shoe. The eternal question of my lifetime is "How do you like America?" To which I politely explain that statehood was granted to the lovely paradise in 1958 and being born there I am a natural-born citizen. Being of military parents in an Army hospital should mean something but it doesn't. "How do you like being a citizen?" they ask. "It's not bad" I explain "for despite my one im­ portant vote in the last election the wrong par...

That's easy for me to say but then again this statement has been confirmed by some higher authorities. I sit here safe and secure in my plush office with re-up posters surrounding me along with other military prose and wonder how many schoolboy players are getting the come on from college recruiters. Little do the prep stars know that they are in many cases getting tricked into going to the recruiters' school.
