VOL. 33 NO. 24 0 & I CARD 61108 0115 & 4l?T ■=3jooV K/ti 1?F IMG UFA PUROAsg.. After you’ve landed on Broadway and Park Place which costs hundreds of dollars in rent you realize that you will need to stretch your money in order to continue playing the game. I Provides plastic purchasing power In Monopoly it’s a matter of mortgaging the proper- ties you hold until someone lands on one of your hotels and you’re able to repay the “loan.” Wouldn’t it be much simpler if they just added a Parker Brothers Charge Card to the game enabling you to pay all the bills even if you’re low on cash? Then when the instructions say “Go to jail. Do not pass Go and do not collect $200” you could simply inquire “Do you accept credit cards?” and continue playing another round. Parker Brothers hasn’t gone quite that far but credit cards or “plastic money” as some refer to them are fast becoming the normal method of payment for many purchases in that wide wonderful world surrounding the Monopoly boa...

Page Two-A BY JOHN SPANN Go before any board whether its a promotion or a special selection board as NCO of the Quarter or Soldier of the Quarter and before you’re through you’ll feel like you’ve been through the wringer. It is a challenging task for anyone to accept for there are questions on general military subjects job related Military Occupational Speciality (MOS) questions knowledge of current events chain of command and even trivia or trick questions (if you happen to be a trivia fan). .The questions on military subjects your MOS cur- rent events and chain of command are important and need to be stressed on those boards. But do we really need to have the trivia or trick questions? Are they im- portant for today’s soldier? Take for example the question How many trucks are there on post? You think to yourself what in the world is this guy talking about? Does he mean how many jeeps duece and a halfs and five tons there are or how many pickups there are? If you were thinking alon...

Page Four-A H'ii $ Screening gives first-aid to DarnalVs ER affliction By RICHARD STACY What would you think if you were told that 75 per cent of your life would be spent without hospital services available? What would you think if you had a ruptured appendix late one evening came to the Emergency Room at Dar- nail Army Hospital and a sign on the door read “Sorry Closed” Hours 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday- Friday. Fortunately these questions are ridiculous because 1 Darnall is ready every hour of the day to demonstrate the quality care and concern the Ft. Hood Community expects. The 24 hour operation of the hospital includes the Emergency Room (ER). In fact this emergency ser- vice accounts for a yearly patient load of well over 60000 patients. It is a comforting thought to know that there is a place to go 24 hours a day to receive emergency treatment. Many people using the ER are bonafided emergencies but far too many patients view and use the ER as an af- ter duty hours Outpatient Clin...

Friday August 23 1974 By JOHN GRABOWSKI If you hadn’t noticed lately money is on the way out. It’s being replaced more and more every day by that magical accounting device credit. Fact is the guys who used to be so proud they “didn’t owe nobody nothing” are ore than rare: they’re nearly extinct. Used to be if you needed some cash you asked a friend and he helped you out. Then you paid him back. It was personal trusting close. But then we became more sophisticated and developed banks compound in- terest and collateral. Nowadays e’re so advanced we have credit cards that will get you to countries where you can’t even under- stand the price tags. No matter. Your credit card com- pany will be glad to translate for you in your monthly statement. Surprise! There’s ho better way to get in way over your head than with plastic money used without discretion. Don’t get wrong—credit cards can be great. They can even save you money by giving you leverage to capitalize on sales and the like. But ...

So you’re interested in draf- ting electrical wiring and car- pentry but can’t really make up your mind which one you want to earn a living from. Flipping a coin won’t help the coin only has two sides. However there is away that can help you determine which field you are more interested in and may be capable of per- in he Singer/Graflex Test. Actually this is not a test but a chance for individuals to observe and perform work descriptive of actual jobs that they maybe interested in. It is not a test of pass or fail. It measures the individual’s in- terest and aptitude (ability to perform a job) in various fields. Normally an individual who is “short” going to a service school or interested in a cer- tain trade may go to see an educational counselor. The counselor then schedules him/her for evaluation at the S...

Friday August 23 1974 Editor’s Note: Roy D. Holt is a 76 year old native of Central Texas who is well versed on the history of the West. A teacher of 50 years Holt is the author of three books and many articles about the old West. By ROY D. HOLT The Spaniards brought the first horses to the Southwest it is generally agreed. In time the offspring of these fine hor- ses came to roam free all over the waving sea of grass in the Southwest. They were wild they loved their independence and they fought any man who tried to tame them. The Texas saddle horse of open range days had “the pitch” bred into him and buck he did. Such horse stock made the nomadic Plains Indians into fierce nations on horseback. From such stock came the Texas cowpony of trail driving days and the foundations of the modern Quarterhorse. They were tough with remarkable stamina and could subsist on the grass alone. They could pitch they could kick bite paw run over and run away from skilled horsehandlers. Two distinct ...

On one ran e the troops were to be drilled in firing upon ground targets simulating en em troops tanks etc. On the other range gunners engaged fire on a rocket type target called the Ballistic Aerial Target System (BATS) which would be laun- ched from the area of fire.
