Friday September 13 1974 First Cavalry Academy will open soon “First in Manila. First in Tokyo. First in Pyong’yang.” Those are the three critical fir- sts achieved by the 1st Cavalry Division the First Team. But “First in trooper education” is a goal a dream that will begin to reach fulfillment with the opening of the Cav Academy on September 16. The new a ility and educational program grew out of a need to better meet the educational desires of First Team troopers many of whom are seeking a high school ip lo a uch of th education leading to that diploma will occur during duty hours. Easily the most ambitious educational program yet un- dertaken in the First Team the Cav Academy is the brain- child of Maj. Gen. Robert M. Shoemaker the division com- mander and staffers in the division’s G-l office. Shoem waker outlined his plans for the academy at a special meeting in late August. In attendance at the briefing were Dr. Luis M. Morton Jr. president of Central Texas Col- lege and Chan...

Page Four-A Frustrated fuelers fight morning Grand Prix Not many years ago a humorous and entertaining flick entitled “Those Daring Young Men in Their Flying Machines’’ hit the cinema circuit and revealed the frustrations that men of daring are often faced with in their dangerous quest for the ultimate in the unusual. Then came Evel Knievel crazy or courageous depen- ding on one’s outlook and another glimpse of the height of man’s daring. But every morning the major networks could film even greater feats of daring performed by motorists ap- proaching Ft. Hood from the outlying areas. Take Highway 190 between the West Gate and Cop- peras Cove (and if somebody would take it it might prove a blessing for all). Between 6:45 a.m. and 8 a.m. 190 becomes an amateur’s Indy 500 complete with high- speed tailgating passing on either side of the road squealing tires and screaming engines. However the high-speed action is delayed for most drivers until the obstacle a traffic signal at the entra...

Page Ten-A JOHN GRABOWSKI Ever since the ancients first found a use for horses and other animals in warfare the challenge of Cavalry has rested its capacity for change and its speed and respon- siveness to battle the ability to quickly strike a telling blow so the attack (or defense) might be better exploited by other combat elements. Because of the need for mobility cavalry has frequen- tly been lighter than the other combat arms. The relative disadvantage is off-set by in- a tiv a imaginative employment technological advances and organizational changes. The technological advances of the Twentieth Century have caused the dramatic and wide-sweeping changes in the history of warfare. In fact it has been suggested that our capacity for destruction has grown more in the last 75 years than in all the recorded history before. It is no wonder that the Cavalry of the last few decades has been transfigured several times to keep abreast of those developments. From avalry’s official birth in ...

Page Fourteen-A Although SP/5 Richard M. Draper has only been in the Army for five years he has his own idea of what it means to be a careerist. “To me that’s a guy who stays in the Army because he likes what he’s doing and not because he’s afraid of what it might be like somewhere else. “One of the things I like about the Army is the opportunity you have to try out new ideas. You know you’re given the responsibility to get a certain job done but you can be inventive. “I like to try out new jobs too. In fact I’ve just parked my truck (my primary MOS is Heavy Equipment Operation and Repair) and I’m training to be a Hometown Recruiter. “So as long as I’m happy with what I’m doing I’m not going to worry about the future.

Friday September 13 1974 SPORTS The Royal Treatment By JERRY “PORKER” REED Complete the following sentence: Fred Williamson doesn’t know how to_____ How about doesn’t know how to announce a football game. There are many that share that opinion. It’s true the former NFL performer turned actor isn’t getting any good reviews from the critics. Nope it didn’t take “The Ham mer” long to prove he isn’t another Don Merideth in the ABC Monday night football booth. The regular season hasn’t even started and already Williamson is being ridiculed by various writers across the country. They’re going straight for the jugular and Williamson is exposing his leather-tough skin. Sample: this from UPI’s Frank Swertlow “Fred Wil- liamson is a Muhammad Ali with lockjaw. He has all the charm and wit of a bull in a china closet. Pretty convincing isn’t it? Actually I’d rather listen to 4 Anita Bryant sing the national anthem while spitting out orange seeds than put up with three hours of Fred’s “color com...

Page Two-B By JERRY REED Sports Editor Yep it was one of those games where you sit on the edge of your seat waiting to get popcorn. Reference is being made to the Championship Game of the Post Water Polo Tournament held last Friday at Pool No. 4. It’s true it wasn’t all that exciting. The reason: the 1st Cav. Div. dominated the contest as they soundly defeated the 2nd Armd. Div. 21-3. Why? The “First Team had the most experienced squad. Despite the embarrassing loss the 2nd Armd. Div. did have some good news —they don’t have play the 1st Cav. Div. anymore this year. You see this wasn’t the first time that the Cavalrymen had defeated the HOW representatives. In the opening round of action the 1st Cav. Div. handed the 2nd Armd. Div. an almost identical beating as they coasted to an easy 22-1 victory. It was most evident that in both cases the overall ex- perience of the “First Team” was the deciding factor. Steve Bogdon one of three players to score for the 2nd Armd. Div. agreed “That...

Friday September 13 1974 By JERRY REED Sports Editor Little did Lonnie Sorrell fciow that when he crossed home plate scoring the first run of the Post Slow-Pitch Sof- tball rnam ent he’d be ^making it a habit. Sorrell the sta leftfielder of -B Co. 48th ed. Bn. 2nd &rmd. Div. socred the initial ■V run of the championship game a a Coleman’s two-run homer in ihe first inning.

Field on Septem- ber 4 highlighted the annual tournament.

Page Eight-B by CLEM HUGHES Fire-breathing dragons are on the prowl at MASSTER and their presence may mean that Army in- fantrymen can carry a punch powerful enough to stop enemy tanks in the future. “Dragon” is actually a code name for anew antitank guided missile system that is undergoing rigorous field testing at MASSTER (Modern Army Selected Systems Test Evaluation and Review) at Ft. Hood. a a proximately 30 pounds and is light enough to estro a re vehicles and battlefield for- tifications with a high degree of ac- curacy. “The reasons for the high rate of accuracy is because the Dragon missile can be guided toward the target once the missile has been fired” explained Maj. Robert C. Barron one of the test officers at MASSTER. “As the missile is in flight it trails out a thin wire that is used to transmit electronic sig- nals from the gunner that correct them issile’s direction.” Once the missile is fired all the gunner is required to do is keep the cross-hairs of his sight on th...
