SAD REVELATIONS:
Pvt. Londinsky Relates Facts
He Discovered the Hard Way

By PVT. JERRY LONDINSKY
3651st Service Unit
The soldier's lot is not an easy one,
even though he is stationed at a
large university and is surrounded by
attractive coeds. Take Comnany A,
3651 Service Unit, for example. In
addition to their regularly assigned
technical studies, the men of Com-
pany A must also take in stride many
military courses in preparation for
Officer Candidate School.'
Since we have absolutely nothing
to do between midnight and six in
the morning, this should not, ordi-
narily, present any difficulties. How-
ever, for some inexplicable reason,
we begin to tire about 11 p.m. After
all, we do sleep until ten minutes of
six.
New Course Plagues Them
A short time ago, map reading and
sanitation having been successfully
completed, a new study arose to
plague us-military law. We imme-
diately suggested that it might per-
haps be unwise to encroach upon
the activities of the J.A.G. School
over in the Law Quad, we being
lowly privates and they being field
marshals or something. Unfortun-
ately, they had no objections. And
so began the study of military law.
"In Article 104 of Articles of War,
company punishment is provided
for," chanted the instructing officer,
" ,irst comes admonition and-"
"Gigs," cried an over-enthusiastic
pupil. "Right," said the lieutenant,
and you have three."
He continued. "The, next step in

company punishment is the cancella
tion of privileges."
"I wonder what that's like," wise-
cracked the gigged private." "You'll
find out this week-end, private," re
plied the lieutenant. So I found out
In the very next lesson we learned
that the fourth item was hard labor
for one week. It's a good thing I
kept my mouth shut for the remain-
der of the hour.
Court Martial Explained
In a few minutes the next bit of
information was divulged to us. "A
summary court martial may try a
non-commissioned officer if he con-
sents. Even if he does object, he may
be tried by a summary court martial
if the appointing authority so or-
ders."
"Wouldn't that be rather difficult,
sir?" questioned a doubtful private.
"Hell," replied the instructor, "the
appointing authority might conceiv-
ably be a major-general, and to the
best of my knowledge, no serious
arguments have ever arisen between
non-comis and major-generals."
Something Worthwhile Found
As the lecture drew to a close, we
came across something that made
this all worthwhile. "In 1928, Presi-
dent Calvin Coolidge exempted all
officers from trial by court martial."
Here at long last was something that
Cdolidge did do. And so, with this
revelation, was concluded our first
lesson in military law. Infantry here
I come!

While some men stack hasily unloaded supplie -n ?hore of Russell Island during occupation early
this year, landing boals return for more stores. Anti -a'rcraft shells in clips of three are piled at center,
canned foods in cases are at right. Occupation of the islands was announced by the Navy department
May 4. The islands were occupied in February.

Army Sends
Lieutenant to
Four Schools
Lawyer Claims Title
Of Schoolingest' Man
In JAG Department
By LT. G. P. FORBES
Judge Advocate General School
"The army has made a student out
of me. In my 15 months since I en-
listed at Des Moines, Ia., in February,
1942, I have attended three other
schools before coming here to make
this the fourth."
Upon this basis, Lt. Scott Jordan,
JAGD, member of the 10th class may
well lay claim to being the "school-
ingest" man in the Army. Lawyer by
profession, he has studied at a pro-
vost marshal's investigation school
at Omaha, Neb. for six months, then
at a criminal investigation school at
Washington, D. C., and another
school conducted by the Provost
Marshal General at Chickamauga
Park, Ga.
Relates Training
"After all the training we received
in the provost marshal's courses we
found that plans for using us were
changed, but let me tell you some-
thing about the training I had." Lt
Jordan said.
"Of the three MP courses, I en-
joyed that at Chickamauga Park the
most The faculty was top notch Our

T've Lei Sein' Here 'it Thinkin"

i've been sti' here and thinkin'
Of the das I've left behind,
And I'd hae i put on paper
What's bcr'n runnin' thru my mind.
F n an educated bumpkin,
In a country sort of way.
Tookl a shot at higher "larnin' ett cle-i mdy
And, when student days were over,
I began to practice law-
Hoped to be the best damn lawyer
That the home town ever saw.
By eternal gods, I prospered-
Bought a home and settled down-
Tried to be a livin' credit
To the place I call my town-
Doin' things the way one oughter-
l;aisin' kids from child to man-
Didn't give a damn if evcr
Congress passed the Townsend
Plan.
Then the war broke out--behold you!
Get a letter, bordered red
When opened- yes, you guessed it,
"neport for diti!y" is what it said.
Then. the Mds looked me over-
Gave me shots that weren't few-
Down my throat and visa versa
Couldn't see no light shine thru,
So now-I'm in the army
And my way of life's upset
For the things they've had me doin'
Have caused me no small fret;
'Cause I left my home with visions,
A°> I'mse, i no doubt, did you
Of comni' back with medals
And perhaps a pension, too!
But, I drew a Service Unit
And no powder ever smell,
evideene in a slum district which led

And, Boys, I don't mind sayin',
I'm disgusted all to Hell.
I boast my legal "larnin' "-
Might as well have been a fool-
Fer 'fore I know'd what happened
They had sent me back to school
To study from a Manual
In which they take such stock
You'd think, b'gosh, that Moses
Must have chipped it from the
rock;
And it makes me boil all over,
Fer, if I may be so bold-
Why, hell, I had my clients "signed"
Before their wounds were cold-
Still, I study 'stead of fightin'
And a classroom fills my day,
While all the while, a lovely war
Is wastin' fast away--
And all the time we're dashin'
In the maddest kind of race
To find upon the close of day,
We've really been no place.
They hand us stacks of "binders,"
End to end, would reach a mile-
"Just read 'em in three hours,"
They say, and kinda smile,
The stuff that's been thrown at us-
Individually and groups-
It looks as if we're enemy,
Instead of friendly troops,
There are "skins" for those who tarry
Or one moment must delay,
For there's not time to shave and
shine
Upon the selfsame day;
There are military subjects,
Interior Guard and like,
Then, when your brains are "petered
out"
We take a practice hike,
Where we slosh above our low-cuts
Thru the rain, an' snow, an' slush
And all they needs a bull-whip
With a feller yellin' "mush"!
So I'm tired of this "malarky"-
Daily writ and mid-term quiz-
When are we goin' to get to go
To where the fightin' is?
Will we still be pushin' pencils
When this bloomin' war is thru?
Please, can't they use a lawyer
On that isle of "Jumpty Doo"?
I'll cart along my Digest
But I want some soldier's tools-
And to get this danin thing finished
With no more of "Service Schools"
"Cause 'fore I'd do this over
Believe me, when I tell,
Alone, I'd take a springlin' can
And storm the gates of Hell.
-Lt. L. E. Bauer,
Ist Lt., JAGD
