Page Two Armored Armored Officers Earlier Roles Of As the men of the 1st Armored Division celebrated "Old Iron­ sides' fourteenth birthday at Fort Hood last week many officers and men were on hand who were also assigned to the division before and during World War II. Col. Alfred H.

Assigned to the 13th Quarter­ master Bn. Hopkins then Cap­ tain Hopkins served as assistant G-4 (supply) officer of "Old Iron­ sides" during the maneuvers.

Thursday July 22 1954 By RONALD FRANKEL The 1st Armored Division's 91st Armored Field Artillery Bn. packs a punch whether firing its 105 mm. self-propelled howitzers in actual combat or firing salutes for visiting dignitaries with the diminutive pack-howitzer at a dress review. Each of the three 105 mm. bat­ talions in the division normally provides support for a 1st Arm­ ored Combat Command. The 91st lone 155 mm. howitzer battalion in "Old Ironsides" usually supports the entire Division's fighting front. Heavy Fire Power Capable of throwing a projectile more than seven miles with amaz­ ing accuracy the 105 requires an eight-man crew plus a driver for the tracked M-7 Tank on which JLe gun is mounted. Four diring [®tteries each containing six self- propelled howitzers make up the devastating fire power of the 91st. In actual combat when the bat­ talion's forward observer spots an enemy target—either from the air in one of the two light observation planes serving the 91st or from the ...

ir--'X ^p&ursday July 22 1954 Sergeant Won DSC For Saving His Patrol "Platoon sergeant of the first platoon." That's the proud and simple an­ swer you'll most likely get if you ask M-Sgt. J. C. Richards of Bel- ton what he's been doing during the more than 11 years he's been a soldier. The soft-spoken sergeant is again a member of the 1st Armored Divi­ sion's Co. 701st Armored In­ fantry Bn. which he left when the fighting broke out in Korea. Sergeant Richards holds the na­ tion's second highest military dec­ oration the Distinguished Service Cross. He won it doing the job he used to hold at Fort Hood and is still holding today. The job? Na­ turally platoon sergeant of the first platoon. Squad in Ambush On the night of May 5 1953 a small reserve patrol of 11 men led by Sergeant Richards was am­ bushed near Yangjimal in Korea by a reinforced enemy platoon equipped with automatic weapons and hand grenades. Wounded in the head and para­ lyzed from the waist down Ser­ geant Richards...

Page Six By JIM BAPIS Phone 4511 Old Archives and the Record Mile The fastest mile officially written into the record books is the 3 minute 58 second effort of Australia's Johnny Landy. Mentioned in the same breath with this performance are the gruelling efforts of Roger Bannister and Wes Santee. Still remaining unmentioned tho is a run made 89 years ago at a celebration at Fort Rice Dakota Ter­ ritory. Old North Dakota archives strongly indicate that the fastest mile ever run belongs to the winer of this unknown race. This long for­ gotten page of track history was recently brought to life by Eugene Fitzgerald sports editor of the Fargo (N. D.) Forum. At a holiday celebration at Fort Rice the first event was the mile run three times around the fort. There were six entries for a prize of $5. The event was won by Cpl. W. H. Green of Co. D. of the Confeder ate deserters in the time of 3% minutes. One of the major criticisms of the race is that the timing wasn't accurate. But even allo...

Thursday July 22 1954 Play-Off Contest To Be Scheduled The clutch pitching of Arnold Earley displayed so well in the first all star game proved the high card again as the American League defeated the Nationals 7-5 in the second game. The win for the American League squared the series between the two all star teams. The Nationals had previous­ ly won the opener 9-7. Earley relieving Jack Estes of the 701st in the sixth inning with the bases jammed and one out struckout McDaniels of the 73rd AFA and forced Baker of the 634th AIB to ground out. The strong left hander of the 100th Tank Battalion pitched the rest of the way for the American League giving up three runs on two hits. The American League drew first blood in the top half of the second inning when Becic of the 2d AAA singled into left jnterfield for the first base hit off hurler Jorgen- of the Post Hospital. Mac- rDougal of the 702nd AIB sacri­ ficed Becic to second base and the 2d AAA first baseman scored on an error to push ...

Page Eight Is 179 Years Old Artillery Furnishes Ground Air Support The Army Aitillery Corps born by act of the Continental Congress in 1775 celebrates its 179th year of service Wednesday. The Corps which is composed of two divisions or branches field and antiaircraft artillery has a dual mission. Field artillery fur- nishes the infantryman a strong support element while antiaircraft units protect him from above- surface attack. Types of weapons used by the Corps have improved considerably over the field guns' and siege can­ non of the Revolutionary War. To­ day's high-powered field artillary weapons include the 280-millimeter atomic cannon which has the power of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs while antiaircraft units boast the 75-millimeter "Skysweep- er" and "NIKE" (nye-kee) the surface-to-air guided misrile. The trend to the potent support elements of World Wars I and II and the Korean conflict has been a gradual process and even in the War of 1812 the four regiments of artiller...

Vol. 8 No. 31 Intelligence Report The other day in Dallas we en­ countered an old soldier who has fought in the front lines in 16 major engagements in three wars and who has never been wounded yet he has three bullet holes in his carcass. They were inflicted by three former wives. Here is evidence that the home is some­ times even more dangerous than the battlefield. Our Female Patriots Last week we told our driver George Marshall who is also a thinker and philopsopher that we wanted to go to the Misanthropic Clinic. He headed immediately for Dr. Milford Kubin's sanitarium of survival. No no we said we want to go down to the WAC De­ tachment. George giggled a little over that one. Years ago when the WACs were organized nearly everyone refer­ red to them as the Misanthropes elieving that they all hated the inen. But we find this is no longer true if it was ever true in the first- place. Captain Gladys M. Culver of Kerrville Texas who com­ mands the local Detachment tells us that many...

Thursday Aug. 5 1954 Men And Gun Dance The Cannoneers' Hop There's a tricky little dance that soldiers of the Fourth Armored Di­ vision are waltzing these days as men of the 22d Armored Field Ar­ tillery Bn. who are currently learn­ ing the correct firing technique for the 105mm self-propelled howitzer follow a drill called the "Cannon­ eers' Hop."

Page Six last .. Boxing's Largest Crowd The first Dempsey-Tunney fight held in Philadelphia's Sesqui centennial Stadium in September 1926 drew a record crowd of 120 757 fans and the record gate in boxing history. The late Tex Rickard master of big time fight promoters counted out several million bucks in a boxing drama that called for a natural rematch. The second bout drawing 104943 fans in Chicago's Soldier Field was none the less a financial success. It is also taken for granted by fight enthusiasts around the coun try that these two heavyweight classics drew the record crowds in boxing history. In thumbing through dust covered volumes of sports history this writer came to find that even the tremendous drawing power of Jack Dempsey aided by the eye opening boxing style of Cobra like Gene Tunney did not capture the largest of boxing crowds. It seems that a hereto unknown bout in Milwaukee claims the largest audience in the fistic fortunes. It started out as just another pay night ...

^Thursday Aug. 5 1954 FORT MONMOUTH N.J. (ANF) —A 100-inch infra-red camera lens capable of cutting through atmos­ pheric haze to photograph objects 35 miles away has been developed by the Army Signal Corps. Known as Peeping Tom it is the biggest and fastest infra-red lens ever made. The speedy F:12.5 telescopic lens can penetrate where slower visible light camera eyes could never ven­ ture. Cameras equipped with this lens can substitute for aerial photo­ graphy when flights are grounded by weather or enemy fire.
