DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last
in a series of articles by Pvt. Peter
Hotton, '50, describing the pre-over-
seas shipment experience of a modern
day infantryman. Pvt. Hotton, a for-
mer Daily night editor, is now sta-
tioned in Tokyo.
By PVT. PETER HOTTON
We got to Fort Ord in time to
take part in our company's ninth
week of training-the point at
which things really got rough.
It was a time when there were
few passes given and much of the
day was spent in restriction to the
barracks or the area. The cadre
and other leaders took the atti-
tude that "basic training is tough
and a man must train 24 hours a
day for his first 14 weeks."
* * *
TRAINING WAS about all we
had time for, although occasion-
(Continued from Page 1)

DURING THE summer months,
the library will also close on Fri-
day evening and Saturday after-
noon and evening. Fewer library
positions will be open than in the
Similar changes will be made
in the branch libraries.
The Law Library will bear much
of the brunt of reduced Law
School funds. Plans are under
way to close the reading room on
Saturday evenings, limit bibliogra-
phic research and reduce the serv-
ices at the reference desk.
* * *
DEAN E. BLYTHE Stason of the
Law School announced that other
reductions will also be necessary,
including the elimination of some
teaching positions and dropping
sections from many courses.
One of the few areas of the Uni-
versity which is not affected by
the appropriations bill is the resi-
dence halls. These are self-sup-
porting and do not depend upon
the Legislature for funds.
DURING EXAM WEEK
Free Delivery on $2.00 food order
ally we could slip down to the ser-
vice club or to a soldier's club for
a beer or two. One week we were
restricted to the barracks for
three days and three nights, dur-
ing which time all we could do was
write letters. Men who happened
to have a supply of candy bars
cleaned up, charging 10 cents to
a quarter per bar.
The entire training organiza-
tion was superior to that of the
45th Division, we were soon to
learn. The teaching and training
was done by a unit of "specialists"
called division faculty, who knew
their business pretty well and
hammered it into the company
until it came out of our ears.
The Sixth Division also provid-
ed adequate classrooms where we
could study weapons, tactics, com-
munications or the perils of VD.
This made it seem more 'like
learning than watching some in-
structor drone on at the head of
the class, which was the technique
at Camp Polk.
Physical build up was something
to shudder at during our three-
week stay at Ord.
Each time we came back to the
company area from the field we
returned via "speed marches,"
where the pace most of the time
is double time, just to "develop
our wind." That worked fine un-
til a man in another outfit drop-
ped dead during one march. After
that they took it a little easier on
There were the usual "confi-
dence" courses, called, in the old
Army, "obstacle" courses, but
most strenuous of them all were
the physical training periods. In
addition to the simple little ex-
ercises, we formed into "PT cir-
cles," where a cadreman stood in
the middle and shouted out dif-
ferent "walks" we should go
through-duck walk, bear paddle,
lame dog walk, and other walks
reminiscent of grade school games,
all of which are pretty rough on
the leg muscle.
Now our training, at least, ba-
sic, is over and we can look back
without too much bitterness. "It
wasn't so bad," most of us could
recall, and we could say that it
had built us up, physically at
least, and we never felt better.
And we had learned to fire al-
most a dozen weapons, how to
live in the elements, how to en-
gage and defeat the enemy (we
hope), how to administer first
aid, how to march, and above all,
how to goof off. In fact, the Army
teaches a man to work harder
trying to get out of a job than the
job itself would require.
But what was ahead? Where
were all the technical jobs the re-
cruiting officers and draft offi-
cials talked about so eloquently?
We'd get a chance to prove our
worth in this man's Army. That is,
if we didn't get into combat, at
least for a while.
And that's a mighty big if.
