Col. Levitt Describes Port of
Embarkation to JAG School

"A port of embarkation is a mili-
tary installation whose mission is to
transport personnel, their supplies,]
and equipment between the zone of
the interior, (the United States) and
overseas base commands or theatres
of operations," Col. Arthur Levitt,
Port Judge Advocate at the New
York Pot gof Embarkation who ad-
dressed the three classes at the Judge
Advocate General's School, said yes-
Checks Equipment
In addition, Col. Levitt pointed
out, a port of embarkation also is
charged with making certain that
such personnel, supplies and equip-
ment are in proper condition for
shipment as well as maintaining
supply for designated overseas base
commands and theatres of operation
at prescribed levels or as the ,tactical
situation requires.
Dispelling a popular conception
that a port consists merely of ware-
houses and office buildings near a
waterfront, the speaker stated that
it consists of staging areas, move-
ment facilities, a command organi-
zation and a supply organization, all
coordinated under a single command.
Many posts along the eastern sea-
board are part of the New York port.
Troops, Supplies Held
At staging areas, troops or supplies
are held and processed prior to em-
barkation and loaded for overseas

destinations, varying in siz and scope
from a whole camp to a single ware-
house. At New York one of the stag-
ing ,areas is exclusively devoted to
mail where mail is processed, sorted,
and V-mail prepared for shipment
across the water, and received from
overseas for distribution through
regular post office department chan-
"There are three operating agen-
cies which combine to accomplish
the mission of a port of embarka-
tion,"-Col. Levitt said. "The trans-
portation division for the land phas-
es of the movement, the Army Trans-
port Service for the marine phases,
and the Operations Division of the
General Staff collaborating with both
in the movementof troops.

Sicily Battle To
End in 10 Days,





The Sicilian campaign will be
over in ten days, Prof. Preston Slos-
son of the history department pre-
dicted in his current events lecture
Making a general survey of the
present military situation, Prof. Slos-
son stressed the fact that for a year
the Axis has had no brilliant succes-
ses, but pointed out that it is still
a matter of years before the war will
be over.
Discussing the rumor that Hitler is
being replaced by a triumvirate under
Reichsmarshal Goering, Slosson said
that while there is no definite basis
for such a statement, it is entirely
within the realm of possibility. He
pointed out that the Nazis need abler
military leadership rather than to be
directed by a "fanatic crackpot" like

A strange place it would be-this State of ours-if our splendid
8000-mile network of surfaced highways suddenly ceased to exist.
