Ll. "Chink" Jewel head coach of the Tankers has stated that 21 cagers have been selected from the battalion basketball "ranks" and the newly formed squad is now busy preparing for the approaching tilts. Although the club must be cut to a smaller roster. Coach Jewel says "the final decisions will not be made until late in January to give each candidate a fair opportunity." The squad has been working a a no on Chink's tutorage for the past week and should be in fair shape for their initial contests this weekend. Nevertheless the inexperienced Tankers will probably go into both contests as underdogs. Lack of suf­ ficient practice and work together may prove too big a handicap to overcome this early in the season. This lack of practice has defin­ itely prohibited the Tanker c...

Page Eight Ft. Sam Man First To Win "Title Award" A chief storekeeper at Fort Sam Houston celebrated his 48th birth­ day recently by becoming the first Civil Service employee of the con­ tinental armies to win the govern­ ment's top efficiency award. Creasey R. Smith chief store­ keeper of the Post Quartermaster's clothing warehouse area was pre­ sented the rare "Title Ten Award" by Lt. Gen. I. D. White Fourth Army commander. Although the cash prize a check for $375 came on his 48th birthday it was his experience in warehous­ ing which saved the Army an esti­ mated $3465 last year. Smith a Civil Service employee since 1941 became chief storekeep­ er of the clothing warehouses in 1951 and realized "too much time and labor was being lost consoli­ dating items from seven or eight warehouses scattered over the in­ stallation."

VOL. 2 No. 2 States er Return Here In Spring Fourth Army's two tactical di­ visions the 37th Infantry. Camp Polk La. and the 1st Armored Fort Hood Tex. will begin an in­ tensive ranger training program next spring according to Fourth Army Headquarters. The Army recently inactivated its ranger companies on the belief that combat units as presently or organized can with additional train ing accomplish ranger missions and in addition effect a financial saving in that the original ranger companies were all parachutists entitled to hazardous duty pay. It planned to train groups no larger from 40 to 45 men to become J: rol experts capable of operat- Tig with maximum combat profic­ iency behind enemy lines. Implementation of such a pro­ gram has been delayed Fourth Army Headquarters said because of the "rapid turnover of key per­ sonnel. The ultimate objective of the Ranger Department at Fort Bea­ ring Ga. is to develop highly trained individuals by the use of a ranger course at The Infant...
