P 1 ' : ' perspiring, officer-aspiring ca- i dets here, there are representa tives from practically every state in the nation. ' • • /: • They have weathered summers ; .that have made local'residents gasp -from Coast to coast. They have seen the mercury go., sky high from the Rio iltande to the Canadian bord er.; But none of them has.ever been as hot a* they are down here at Gamp Hpod,' . Even those seasoned veterans of a summer SchooLaessiorl at AifcM can look back on die >co(mparative comfort of thot**a«©HTrB ‘location (. and smile. Those days with the,ir warm and pleasant breezes were nothing compared to the ^Cesent time at Camp Hood. But the heat alone is not 1 Ctvough. For over all of Camp Hood there is a special ingredi ent which is exclusive within the borders of this sprawling camp. The substance is dusti. * It isn’t an ordinary dust. It is white, powdery, blinding dust that creeps irjto every corner, every piece !of equipment and every lock et. m Let a six by six truck stajrt obt i the morning and, despite the ew, it will be followed by a ris ing cloud of white, rolling dust. But seeing a truck raise such a cloud and riding in one that is raising such a cloud ar^ two fferent things. ce today for instance, ies F and G, the two cav nies taking ROTC sum 1 ! p training, were scheduled to •ractice firing from tanks using wlibre machine guns and the 76 ter gun. e it was Monday the opti- among us donned clean fa- when the reveille whistle souhded at '4'J50 a. m. By 5:30 we were loaded on trucks and had set out across , ^eamp to head for the firing ranges! which ring the camp. Rumbling through camp we had yet awakened sufficiently to embeii the dust. But, as we '■r\ ' ’ i f 1 <, To Have eat And Dust coveTi a whi hopn , n,. ^ .. > '• • 1 . 84 - T reached the outskirts and began jip to the hills,around camp, left the paved roads. We i had been riding calmly up until then. But all of a sudden the world was blotted out. A white fog enveloped the vehicles which werie transporting us. But-soon we realized it wasn’t fog. It Was dyst, enemy of all from generate bn down. , - • j teadlly it rose behind ' us. Since there was kittle windL it lifted itself high into the air and remained as a sort of sn|k)ke screen that obscured the road. A few of the sleepy ones who had been caught unawares coughed and gagged* The more al'ert mem-! hers of the* two companies just •itted their teeth,, closed their ter and dustier and dastier.1 Noon time came with the wel come relief of mess call. Every one knocked off for an hour! and spent the time forgetting the heat ind! partaking of chow. Incidenta ly, chow time here at Camp Hood id about the highest spot of any dayj It is good and there is plenty of It even in the field where serving conditions are far from ideal. The cooks serving the two -p cavalry com panies (and especial ly F Company- with which I am more familiar) must have been the best Obtainable for, surpris ing eqoiigh, very 'few people gripe about the meals. That, we understand, is unusual. When chow time was over and our mess kits had been scalded, practice firing continued. Each ca det was given an ■ opportunity, or will be tomorrow if he missed to day, to serve as a gunner, a load er, and a tank commander. The machine gun firing is at moving targets at ranges around 600 yards. The 76 mm. firing is with high tocplosiV# shells at rang es from 1 30o to 1,800 yards. • When evening finally arrived and the tanks ‘shoved off for|their were coveted from head to foot with a white mask. Faces which had been clean on departure were chalky and streaked with perspiration. Shoes looked more white thar brown. Uniforms, once dark green were a pastel green from the day’i dust. ■, Slowly the men mounted th< white trucjks. Motors roared am as the trucks pulled out of theii parking areas onto the roads the) raised billowing clouds again. ’ Down the road they went, hi behind thepi they left their marl And therei are several hun ‘ “jocks” who are willing to that the diist plumes will still be hanging iq the air when they re turn to thp range tomorrow. So those of you at Aberdeen, Brooks, Chanute and even Col lege Station can talk about your ,heat and dust. We know we have J you licked on botl curate.' And, if you don’t believe us, just come down and inspect our camp. You’H know how to get here without trouble. Just spot the dust in the air and head straight for it. We’re right in the middle of it. companies it came time fo|r the cavalry cadets to bead back to the barracks. J But they weren’t the same men who had d amounted in the mom ing.
