Page Two-A -If anything good can be said about the energy crisis it is that hundreds perhaps thousands of families will be spared the horror of having their Christmas celebrations shattered by the death or in­ jury of a loved-one in an auto accident. I Every year the National Safety Council predicts the number of people will die on the nation's highways during the holiday season a number always higher than the year before. And every year the public seems determined to exceed the predicted figure. But this year the council had a difficult time deciding on a prediction. Because of the energy crisis thousands of people will be travelling by methods other than their cars driving more slowly or just staying home. Thus the death rate may even decline this year. 'Hopefully the accident rate of 2nd Armd. Div. per­ sonnel and their families will also show a decline. As ^happening across the country the Ft.

That's the goal of Red Cross and other community volun­ teers who again this year have joined in an all-out ef­ fort to make the Yuletide season a brighter one for patients in U.S. Military hospitals. Both at home and overseas the American Red Cross and many other organizations have been busy since fall coordinating plans to make Christmas a happy time for the many patients who are unable to go home or to have their families with them during the holidays. Organizations and individuals have donated baked "goodies" decorations and hand-made articles not to mention countless hours of their own time to make patients more cheerful. Overseas Santa's Red Cross helpers are preparing decorations and foods and planning for entertainment indigenous to the particular country. For example at the U.S. Naval Hospital on Guam Red Cross volunteers will wear native island costumes as they distribute Guamanian yoyos and coconut ashtr...

Friday December 21 1973 1st in a series of three) In last week's issue of the Environmental Hotline we discussed the national solid waste problem and recycling as along range solution. Now let us take a look at the problem at home Fort Hood if you will. There were three basic reasons Fort Hood initiated a solid waste recycle program. First the critical need to con­ serve our dwindling supply of natural resources second major reason recycling presents an attractive method for disposal of solid waste. The Army has a third reason for recycling and that is directives and regulations such as FORSCOM Reg 420-5 requires the Army to have programs to "Enhance the Quality of Renewable Resour­ ces." The economics or cost ef­ fectiveness of a recycle program is hard to assess. Actual costs of segregation collection processing and delivery to the buyer are generally assumed to be higher than collection and disposal in a sanitary landfill. However studies indicate that recycling costs per ton are...

Page Sixteen-A By BOB ALLEN Oh cruel fate. How dastar­ dly a blow has been dealt this guardian of the flame. Thanksgiving week was so relatively calm and fire-free that the past week with its 18 calls was enough to induce a trauma. Nonetheless the fearless fire-fighting fool continues his singe search throughout the confines of the Ft. Hood reservation leaving no stone unturned and no "butt" un­ stamped cigarette that is. Keeping the week normal the first call to come into Chief Andy's office was a report of a dumpster burning near Bldg. 14020. No loss was reported but the fiery phan­ tom would like to find the dude who dumped his panatella into the trash. The next flame found was in a Huey at Bldg. 7027. A hot battery caused a little heartburn but no government loss with the exception of the 48 and 11 legs of the foot-long centipede who sat on both poles of the battery at the same time. Needless to say his dancing days will be somewhat delayed. Then there was the sprinkler that wen...
