PORTLAND, OREGON-SIDPTEMBER, 1944 Number 21 gtate q en dlcwe qo.od Rea4rm 104 P IUJe. in Peltl(J/l,lnance Thousands of Portlanders and many World War 1 veterans who are members of the American Legion saw for the first time Oregon State Guardsmen marching, armed and in full uniform, when Portland units formed a guard of honor for Legionnaires opening the state convention August 10. Spectators who lined Portland's downtown streets thrilled with a new pride as they watched fathers and sons, neighbors and friends. swing smartly past to the tunes of t.he Guard band. This was a new experience for Portland. ann something of surprise in it t.oo. for the State Guardsmen have been hard at work on their own problems, with no time to spare, and little inclination, to make a show of parading the city's streets. For this occasion, those who participated did so voluntarily, leaving their work for the noon hour and returning to it as soon as uniforms were doffed, and doing it in tribute to their comrades of the American Legion. The experience was new to the Guardsmen too, and it did them, and all of the Oregon State Guard good, thus to get acquainted with a busy public who knows little of what his neighbor is doing to keep things on a level keel at home while his younger comrades are trying to restore world equilibrium abroad. But the best compliment the Guardsmen received for their splendid showing, and it was a showing in which every Guardsman over the state can take pride, was a left-handed offering by a newspaper photographer who had been rushed out to 'get a picture of the parade," and had trained his camera on the marching columns, more intent on,r'etting a good picture than in knowing who it was he photographed. Asked if he had got a shot of the State Guardsmen, he said: "Were those State Guards? You know, I thought some of them were a little old for regular army soldiers." This issue's cover picture, made by a staff photographer of The Oregonian portrays Oregon State Guard troops as they concluded a parade of Portland downtown streets August 10 in honor of the opening of the annual Oregon department convention of the American Legion. State Guardsmen voluntarily composed a provisional battalion as an honor guard for the visiting Legionnaires. Brig. Gen. Ralph P. Cowgill, State Guard commander, and members of his staff, led the parade. For thousands 6f Portlanders the parade provided their first glimpse of Oregon State Guardsmen, armed and in full uniform. Their reception of the Guardsmen was enthusiastic and the troops made a fine appearance.

Busy With New Equipment ALBANY - The Albany unit has been very busy the last few months mastering the use of the new equipment and, according to a recent anonymous article in the "On Guard," allegedly answering the plaintive call of the bull. The small bore qualification course has been practically completed with very gratifying results. Names and scores will be given at a later date as soon as all have fired. A large percentage have attained the sharpshooter score and a good number the expert rating and, of course, some did qualify as marksmen. Some men have already qualified on the Model 1917 Enfield and both courses are scheduled for completion within four weeks. One of Co. B's most successful ovenight bivouacs was held August 5 and 6 at 4,097-foot 'Mary's peak, one of the highest mountains in the coast range. Although we are usually termed as "foot sloggers" our maneuver was carried out in a typical air corp training area, literally "up in the' wild blue yonder" and actually in the cluods which just capped the peak. However, visibility below was excellent en-' abling men to pick out different land marks in the valley. The maneuver included an approach march over unusual and difficult terrain utilizing patrol scouts and reconnaissance patrols, under command of Sgt. George Ehrlich and Dent Stewart, maintaining direction by the compass. Contact between the various elements was exceptionally good, resulting in fine coordination and preparing the men for the afternoon maneuver using two opposing units under the command of 1st Lt. J. Sprague and 2nd Lt., T. M. White; one with orders to proceed to a destination and avoid combat if possible, the other to locate and attack any group. The first unit was ambushed but managed to disengage only to be attacked later, resulting in a spirited but bloodless problem. The scouts had some difficulty keeping to the business at hand because of the numerous deer encountred which, however, refused to commit themselve to battle being no doubt overawed by the imposing military strength. Another overnight bevouac was held August 26 and 27. The maneuvers at night consisted mainly of guard duty with reconnaissance patrols out and sending messages using the new signal lights which have proved to be very efficient. Sunday was mostly devoted to zeroing the Enfields and firing the qualifica tion course. The field telephone unit and firing line shelter have been completed, both of which are exepcted to be a great help Oregon State Guardsmen Wins State Rifle Title PORTLAND-1st Sgt. Charles Lucas of Co. E, 2nd Bn., Portland, a darkhorse in competition against top-notch shooters of the Pacific northwest, holds the state outdoor small bore championship for 1944 by virtue of totalling up the high grand aggregate score at the Oregon State Rifle and Pistol association small bore rifle tournament at Clackamas July 23. Lucas' surprising performance against the crealil of small bore shooters was the high light of partjcipation by Oregon State Guardsmen in the tournament. Co. E under the able direction of its commanding officer, Capt. Frank Cosby, had team in the shoot. an ll-man Members of this team were the only State Guardsmen to 'participate officially as Guard entries. And, to cap the honors, Pvt. Floyd S. Ragner of Co. E's team, walked off with the state junior title. Sgt. Lucas has been shooting in the small bore field for a number of years and has fired consistently in the expert bracket. His performance against the large number of top-ranking marksmen was something of an upset, however for competition at the tournament always is keen. In addition to winning the state outdoor small bore championship Sgt. Lucas placed third on the 10-man team selected to represent the state association in the international matches. The ll-man team representing Co. E all fired in their Oregon State Guard uniforms. The group included: Capt. Frank Cosby, 1st Sgt. Charles Lucas, Staff Sgt. Ora Vial', Cpl. L. Knox, Pfc. Ed Gloss, Pvts. George H. Kessler, Hal Bevan, Cpl. Paul Watts, Pfc. Ted Cosby, son of the captain, Pfc. Robert Schuknecht and Pvt. Floyd S. Ragner. Capt. Cosby, who also is range officer for the 2nd battalion, himself has held the state small bore championship several times and now holds the state.30 caliber title.

5 September, 1944 Co. K, First Regiment, Challenges Any and All By 1ST LT. NORIN O. HOLMAN SALEM-Hear yet Hear yel Polish up them shootin' irons, you dead eyes! Because Co. K, 1st regiment, 0 l' e go n State Guard at Salem, Oregon, does hereby challenge any and all comers in a telegraphic shoot on the prescribed small bore course. This challenge is being made at this time for" a shoot to be held after the summer drill perio'd is over, as we believe it will be an added inducement for recruits and drill attendance during the winter months. Those units interested in accepting this challenge should address their acceptance as soon as possible to Lt. Savage' Co. K, 1st regiment, O. S. G., The Armory, Salem, Oregon, and arrangements will then be made for the competition Co. A, 6th Bn. Bivouac Along Tualatin River By CPL. H. B. HACKWORTH OSWEGO...:... Co. A, 6th Bn., had another successful overnight bivouac at Camp Eastham on the Tualatin river on August 19 and 20. Capt. Don Crampton was in charge assisted by Lts. Carl Hagan and William Rabenau. The company posted guard from 11 p. m. until 6:30 a. m., the night passing quietly except for a general alarm at 2:13' a. m. The whole company was called out at that time' the men taking 4, minutes to dress, fall in, and go on patrol duty. Patrols returned at 2:45 and the balance of the night passed uneventfully. It might be added, however, that the disturber who made the racket is still being sought. Reveille was sounded at 6:30 a. m., inspection at 7 a. m. followed by a two-mile hike. Breakfast was at 8 a. m., and what a breakfast. Sgt. Channel and his crew are to be complimented on the ON G U ARD!

This was a rugged deal and was enjoyed by both platoons. There were some sore muscles the next day, however. Following the field maneuvers, non-coms put the men through hand grenade practice,. which was followed by signal practice under the direction of Cpl. Bob Lovell. Lunch was held at 12:30 p. m., the camp was policed, and the overnight billet adjourned at 1 :30 p. m. The Guard members are lookng forward to another overnight billet before the summer is over. At this time We wish to compliment Acting 1st Sgt. Wayne Strong on his appearance and conduct during the field maneuvers. How do you keep your uniform look,ing so clean and fresh, Sergeant? Co. A has two future members lined up, Cpl. Bill Duncan reporting a grandson, and Sgt. Strong reporting a son. Nice going, fellas Italians Vent Ire On Retreating Nazis (This' is the concluding installment of the letter written to Gen. Cowgill by an observing enlisted men in a U. S. Recon, squadron on the Italian front. The initial installment was printed in the July-August issue of On Guard-Editor.) T HE Italians behind the German lines are digging up hidden arms which they brought home

6 Page Four when the army disbanded after the armistice. Woe to the fascists and any small party of krauts left behind as rear guards. These people I::ave had several months of German occupation and they didn't care for it. Some built up some scores which they jump to settle upon our approach. They have released prisor.ers, shot up small parties of Germans and furnished us with much information. We have quite a number fighting with us and they do quite well in their own sectors. Lately, I have seen something of the French. They, and the Canadians are the ones who really toss the artillery. I used to think the Canadians threw more shells than anyone, but the French guns never let up. I believe they even try to fire them on the move. The Moroccans and the Senegalese move through these mountains at a trot, with smiles on their faces and knives in their hands. They, and the British Indians are at home in the brush and rocks and all are masters of the art of killing by stealth. Jerry respects and fears them, and doesn't dare put out a night patrol. I am glad they fight with us instead of against us. We received the news of the channel invasion by radio, and our hopes of getting this thing over brightened a bit, but we are not kidding ouselves, for we know how hard Jerry can fight. I'm sure it will take some months yet and the cost will be high in men. They have just brought in a Negro who was in the British garrison at Tobruk and was captured there by Rommel. He has been a prisoner for two years. Our patrols picked him up. He is eating American chow and I can see the teeth in his smile from whẹre I write He was very glad to escape from the krauts. VVe have recovered many of our prisoners of war of late in towns We have captured. --{>-- Hq. Co. Has Busy Session At Chckamas Bivouac By SGT. L. V. BECI{MEYER PORTLAND - Headquarters Company finally got out from ON G U A R DI under the covers and had an overnight bivouac! Sat u l' d ay night, August 5, found several cars rolling down the highway toward Clackamas, filled with OSG regimental communic.ations men. Camp Withycombe was quickly taken in charge, and shelter tents pitched. Good old Cook Sack promptly took over the mess hall.. From 2100 to 2330 communication lines were laid from regimental CP to two battalion CPs, being advanced after some time. Quite a number of mistakes were made, but quickly corrected. large quantity of knowledge was obtained by those participating this after-dark operation. A We made a very strategic advance to the rear after that workout, and ended up at the mess hall where Cook Sack had coffee prepared for the boys. The battle was soon re-fought. from one end of our tent formation to the other - there may have been a little wood-sawing too! Around 6 a. m. several of us starting stirring around and were ready to start another day. The morning was spent on the range, each of us getting in some sub-machine practice, and.30 calibre shooting. Some pretty good scores were made. The boys returned home that afternoon all set for the 2nd Bn. bivouac on August 19 in which they planned to participate. Our CO, Capt. Henry E. Smith, expressed his appreciation to the boys for their good turn-out and fine showing at the recent gas demonstration, bivouacs and Legion parade. First Sgt. Fitch and Cpl. Mc Elroy have both been suffering set-backs from their recent illness, but they say they will be back with us in another week or two. Wonder! Ye scribe must have been using a fountain pen on the sub-machine gun range from that September, 1:)44 low score he made. But what happened to Msg. (Cen) C, Sgt. Luedtke? He evidently imagined himself manning an AA gun. And did you hear about Sgt. Grey and Cpl. Kee, getting lost on their way home from Clackamas, August 5? Guess we'll have to supply them with a compass permanently... or could they have stopped off somewhere and then started off toward home on the wrong foot? Cupid Hits Co. G, 2nd Bn. By SGT. M. RANSON Special Sel'vice Section PORTLAND - This is news! Pvt. Alvin H. Petersen, one of the veterans of Co. G, 2:p.d Bn., 1st regiment, will by the time you read this, really have himself tied in knots. (Or is it spelled "nots"?) On August 26, Pete took the fatal step. It all started at the ration board, where his very lovely bride has been employed in the gasoline department. She is the former Barbara Henderson, and they clicked immediately AND hard! We were afraid we might lose Pvt. Petersen, because new brides sometimes object to being minus their husbands for more than a few minutes at a time. But the "grapevine" has it she is all for the Guard and insists that he continues his attendance. And, whatever the "little woman" says is law-isn't it? Pl'omotions Made Two of the best of Co. G have been rewarded in these d when time is at a premium and "doing more than your share " is usually unnoticed, because so many are doing more than their share. Neil Willhoft has recently been promoted to - private first class, and Robert Davis has rated a well-deserved boost to technician, grade 5. Pfc. Willhoft really "knows his stuff" around the armory, and is an inspiration to everyone in the Company; and (Continued on Page 5)

Speaking of discipline - some of us in Co. G, have been wondering what the initial "P. D." stood for in Pvt. White's name. Now it has been revealed they mean Police Department White. Pvt.

The men in action are (left to right) Pvts. Oliver Seavy, Frank Merrill and Alvin Kreger. the Portland Police department since July 13. For the records, the "P. D." really stand for Phillip Douglas. However, your reporter thinks you had better watch your step, State Guardsmen I He's a pistol packin' poppa-he knows how to use it-and he's pretty strict about law and order Hermiston Guardsmen Deserve Praise HERMISTON - Two officers and two non-commissioned offi- Page Five cers from Co. E, 22nd Bn., are deserving of special recognition in connection with one of the summer maneuvers held at Clackamas in July. Eager to participate in the announced maneuver, the four men started from their home at Hermi:lon, Oregon, shortly after midnight for a 7-hour drive to the scene of the Portland battalions' activity. Enroute, the guardsmen were delayed by a broken fan belt that meant a local auto garage man had to be routed out of bed to render first aid. But the men made the grade never the less, and took part enthusiastically in problems of the day. The On Guard staff salutes Capt. V. E. Daugherty, Lt. Chas. H. Friday, Sgt. Robert Russell and Sgt. Royal Stanton for meritorious service in their duties as Oregon State Guardsmen G. I. Issue Gives Supply Sergeant Headache By PFC. J. LYNN WYKOFF ' PORTLAND - New recruits welcomed to the ranks of Co. A, 4th Bn., recently include Lionel Brown, Donn J. Hansen, Charles Paine and A. O. Workman. Many members of the Company participated in what was the first Portland public showing of the Oregon State Guard at the Victory' Center program of Thursday, August 10. It was noticed that the families of those who. turned out were on hand to have a look at tl:eir men on parade. Despite somewhat curtailed attendance at drill due to vacations and other summer causes,. Co. A has been progressing through a program of close order drill and riot formations, plus study periods in quarters. Sunday trips to the Clackamas range for.30 caliber qualifying, a demonstration of gas bombs and a planned overnight bivouac have also brought good turnouts. Several Co. A men who work with the telephone company have been missing from drill lately because they were taking special training to qualify them as forest (Continued on Page 6)

8 Page $i or; G U A R D! September, State Guard Takes New Lease on Life w Says Chief of National Guard Bureau "The State Guard has undertaken to insure and guarantee to over 5,000,0000 of, their sons, brothers, sisters and fathers who are facing the enemy beyond the continental limits of the United. States, that they will return to the heritage for whch they are now fighting and which our forefathers earned and secured with sacred blood." The paragraph above is part of a nation-wide message to State Guards by Maj. Gen. John F. Williams, chief of the National Guard bureau. Gen. Williams said: "Experience is the most valuable asset of the soldier and experience is acquired in a great degree by training over and over until perfection is reached. It is this training that saves lives. The objective of the State Guard in the last analysis is to save livesnot only our own lives-but the lives of friends and neighbors. For such a high purpose there should be no stint or let-up, in preparation and in training." Gen. Williams, at the beginning of his message, related that the State Guard over the nation had taken a new lease on life, following a serious slump in morale last summer. He said, in part; "The morale, in most states,' had reached a low ebb. Rifles and bayonets had been called in. Uniforms were scarce and such as they had were salvaged from the C C C program. Selective Service had, speeded up and was depleting the ranks of the State Guard. Strength had dropped from about a quarter of a million to 160,000. The chief of staff had announced a turning point in the war and stated that the United States had assumed the offensive in all theaters. Defense commands were belllg' reduced and two of them had been abolished. Internal security I military police battalions had been cut from 57 to 11. A general assurance of internal security prevailed to the extent that State Guardsmen felt their mission was accomplished. "The War Department sensed this change of morale in the State Guard at the very time VI hen they planned to place gl eater dependance upon this turce, especially in handling domestic disturbances or local em ergencies." Officers of the National Guard bureau, visiting State ' Guard training camps, sensed the letdown in morale and realized the necessity of repairing this damage. They brought back to the War Department a true picture of conditions, which fortified the bureau in its demands for more assistance, and they began to get results. "This year," continued Gen. Williams, we are again contacting the State Guard in the field wherever possible. We have already found that the State Guard has taken a new lease on life. Our officers are richer today by one additional year of experience -the most valuable asset to any military organization. Regulation uniforms have been issued. The rifle and bayonet are restored. Much additional fire power in Thompson guns and light machine guns have been issued and limited transportation facilities, n o w available, have been supplied. "Training aids have received increasing use. Many officers have attended army schools. All of this is reflected in a higher degree of efficiency, more compact organization, better equipment, a higher standard of training and, as a natural result, a highly increased morale. "In the continental United States, 160,000 State Guards are organized in 44 states. These organizations consist of 3 divisions, 28 brigades, 111 regiments, 518 battalions, 2206 rifle companies, 12 cavalry troops, 11 machine gun companies, 5 special weapons companies, 7 military police battalions, 18 air squadrons, 3 motorcycle companies, 1 chemical company, 7 engineer companies, 24 signal companies, 244 medical detachments, 1 battalion of 5 companies of nurses, and 68 bands. --?-- WITH THE MEN ON GUARD (Continued From Page 5) fire observers; during their vacations the boys went to lookout posts in the forests and performed as auxiliary fire spotters. Seems like an interesting way to spend a vacation, as well as a worthwhile activity. Co. A will welcome the boys back this fall, though. Supply Sgt. Jack Horner and his assistant, Pvt. Bishop, know what a clerk in a woman's shoe store has to put up with in the way of exchanges and complaints. The sarge couldn't seem to find shoe sizes to suit all the boys when the company was issued equipment. Some spirited trading among the men resulted in eventual smoothing out of the difficulties. It was much the same with pants and blouses, too and some of the men are wondering if there really was a soldier somewhere with the 14 neck and 37-inch sleeve length with which one of the issl.).e blouses was equipped. After trading around until they ended up with their correct sizes of everything, though, the men were agreed that the "G.!." equipment was worth waiting for the two years it took to get it.

Both finished up about the same time and met at the armory exit. Capt. Joe Eckman saluted Maj. Donald MacArthur and asked, "Going home?" "Sure," was the major's reply as he fell into step beside the captain and started up the street, thinking that he was being invited to ride home with his junior. officer. The two men walked from 10th avenue down to Broadway and the major began to wonder where the captain had parked his car. They still continued walking, steadily, block after block, until they reached the waterfront, some distance away. Finally the major looked sidewise at the captain and exploded, "Gosh, you park your car a long way from the armory!" "My car," answered the captain in surprise' hell, my wife has my car tonight...

"While on the subject of On Guard I would like to make a suggestion in connection with the articles appearing therein. I believe that it would be appreciated by most of the enlisted personnel who peruse the pages if the location as well as the names of the unit be mentioned in each article. We are all interested in the doings of other companies and would like to know where they are as well as what they are doing." Thank you, Sgt. Rhodes.

LA GRANDE, OREGON INTERIOR GROCERY COMPANY LA GRANDE, OREGON units are properly identified in the stories. And now, since we are on the subject, the editors of On Guard have a couple of compliments to hand out, and a few suggestions to make. We are more than pleased by the fine response that followed our recent appeal for more items and stories about State Guard units, and our request that more correspondents be appointed, and that those who have been inactive get busy and send the news about their units to On Guard. The response was gratifying and, as you readers may see for yourselves, there have been numerous stories of interest. But still not enough. On Guard wants to hear from every outfit, and On Guard believes that the members of every outfit would like to see their unit mentioned which, after all, is one way of getting credit for the unselfish service they are giving to the Oregon State Guard. Stories are good, too. We think some of the correspondents are uncovering some hidden talents at writing. But, there are a few suggestions we would like to make which will relieve On Guard's staff of unnecessary work and give them more time to devote to getting out a better magazine. Here they are: Type your stories if possible but, if you can't type them, don't let that stop you from sending in (Continued on Page 11) SALEM, OREGON Carnation Lumber Company "There Is a Material Difference" Forest Grove, Ol'egon

13 September, 1944 WITH THE MEN ON GUARD (Continued From Page 10) stories. ' If you use a typewriter, 'double-space the lines and write on one side of the paper. If you don't type, write as legibly as you can and, when you write a name, print it so that we can't make a mistake in spelling it. Always give rank and first name or initials of the person named. Study the style used in On Guard as to designating units and abbreviating units and titles of rank. If some member of your outfit has an outstanding record we suggest that you might try writing up a sketch about him, 200 words or so, and send along a picture, if possible. Or, if you obtain a good picture of some maneuver or other activity, send that in. On Guard would like more' pictures. Pictures should be 5 by 7 inches or larger. Snapshots do not reproduce well. Try to get in your copy by the deadline date, which is the 20th of the month. And finally, keep up the good work.

SIMS (Old Pop) PORTLAND - Regular drill, meeting was held August 7. Most Guard members had a thrill. Sgt. Hagenmeister of the old 162d Service Co., 41st division, was present. The sergeant gave the Service detachment a real talk on the war down under. We learned what the service outfits have to contend with under battle conditions. He told of the meeting between the G. I. Joe (Dog Face to the army) and Gen. MacArthur. It was a good story and brought back to the men the ideal of the independence of the American soldier. The sergeant really gave us a fine outline of the hardships and trials that service company contended with in the South Pacific. Some of what h told us can not be put into words, as it might help the enemy, but it made us stop and think about what those boys were doing to scrap the Empire that Tojo helped to build. The sergeant had only one small souvenir from the South Pacific. A Japanese dog tag. It was a w'ax stamp about one inch long and as large around as a large lead pencil with a Japanese letter on the end. He wouldn't tell us how he got the dog tag but it is a cinch that Jap didn't come up and give it to him. So he must have gotten the Jap first and the dog tag after. (And Old Pop thinks that is good reasoning.) On our last maneuver our 1st Sgt. Bongard took moving pictllres of the Service detachment, 2nd Bn.

The non-commissioned officers met August 4 in a meeting to form an N. C. O. club. Last reports are that everything is going on fine and a strong club can be expected. --?-- CO. K, lst Regiment Reopens Turner Range By SGT. JOHN W. RHODES SALEM-Co. K, Salem, Oregon, has reopened the old Na- tional Guard range near Turner. The first Sunday was spent in cleaping up the range and pits an putting the target frames in good working order. After the dirty work was completed the working detail fired a few rounds to zero in their pieces. The following Sunday firing began in earnest as 14 hardy souls, in addition to the officers, rolled,grumblingly out of their comfy,beds, hurriedly grabbed a cuppa coffee and rushed to the armory (almost getting there on time), gathered up their equipment and hied themselves out to the range. Upon arriving at the range we 'found it already occupied by a decrepit old ewe who looked as though she had survived many a battle of the firing pits and wondered what this unseemly horde meant by interfering with her breakfast. She must have been an old campaigner, as she calmly went on nibbling at the grass roots to the rear of the pits despite all the "shoos," "scats " and,"beat its" of the enlisted men. But when the captain strode up with the sun glittering on his silver bars and commanded her authoritatively to get the hell out of there she got. After some instructions by the. captain,' preparatory to going o,n the firing line, the battle flag was run up, the pit notified, and we were given two rounds to zero our pieces. This was sufficient to ON G U A RDI obtain our elevation, but not to line up our sights (oh, for a windage screw) but even with this handicap some very good scores were turned in and we hope to better them as we get our sights lined up. That's all for now, chums. Be seeing you in some future issue, I hope. Until then, regards. Your Illiterate Stooge. --?-- Overnight Camp By Co. A, 6th' Bn. By CPL. H. B. HACI{WORTH OSWEGO-Co. A, 6th Bn., under the leadership of Capt. Don Crampton and Lt. William Rabenau, on June 24th held an overnight bivouac at Camp Eastham on the Tualatin river. The Company was well represented and all enjoyed the Saturday evening entertainment, the guard duty during Le night, and the maneuvers the following forenoon. Passes were issued to those Guardsmen who wished to visit the "brightlights" at Tualatin, and several men availed themselves of this opportunity. There is a rumor to the effect that a certain captain and lieutenant got the last two bottles of beer in town. ' During the evening the men spent several hours looking over equipment, shooting the breeze, and enjoying "cokes" and sandwiches prepared by the mess crew. Taps were sounded at 11 p. m. Incidentally, Co. A now has a motorized infantry detachment under the direction of Cpl. Fred Deno. If you are interested, please contact one of the members of the Company who was present at the overnight camp. Guard was posted during the night from 11 p. m. until 8 a. m. and in order to give as many men as possible the opportunity of en joy i n g this pastime the guard was changed each hour. Needless to say the night passed quietly, except for a slight disturbance caused by a couple of corporals endeavoring to locate a busy pack-rat. Reveille was sounded at 5:45 a. m., inspection at 6 a. m., followed by setting up exercises.

Maneuvers were completed at noon at which time camp was adjourned Stick to Your Guns By CAPT. G. N. DAUGHTREY PORTLAND-For the past two years and a half, the Oregon State Guard has been mobilized for the protection of life and property in cases of emergency against enemies of the nation or state from outside its borders or from within. Officers and men have stood by; training, working, planning and spending a greater part of their personal spare time (of which there is little during time of war) in keeping this organization fit for the field in event they should be called for active duty. On December 12, 1941, there was a great rush to the armory at the call of mobilization of the State Guard; these men joined with but one purpose in mind and that was to protect their families and the "right of American free living." Today, in. 1944, our desire for the same standards hasn't changed and our regular troops are fighting harder than ever before to preserve that which we hold so dear to our hearts. The way has not been easy and there are still many difficult paths that lie head of our troops on all fronts. With the State Guard, in lesser measure; the most difficult problems lie ahead.

No member of the State Guard should ease his vigilance; either in his work or his attendance at drill or maneuvers. This is as important now as it was in the last two years; the fight is not over, and you still have your home and family to protect, be it local disturbances or foreign invaders CO. G. 2nd Bn., Reports Period of Real Activity By LT. DAVID FERTIG PORTLAND-Co. G welcomed back for an evening former Guardsman, Sgt. Bob Reilly who left Co. G to wear the uniform of the U. S. army, at the same time Pvt. Burnette left the company to join the U. S. army and Pvt. Peasly to join the navy. On Wednesday, June 7th, our company spent a fine evening in the heights near Hoyt Park on company maneuvers, the night was a real success and got the boys in shape for the week-end at Clackamas. Pvt. Storm is being prepar!'ld to receive a special award for first eluding Major MacArthur and capturing of the Major and his entire staff of observers. How he got where he did and as fast as he did is a company secret. Pvt. White has been dubbed "Sgt. York" in recognition of the wholesale capture he made of the enemy during maneuvers. The war of Clackamas is still being fought and the next overnight trip anxiously anticipated. Following a plan of good fellowship the last drill night of each month sees the night's work followed by a company feed that is good; sometimes the wives get in and they too, agree that it's a pleasure to be served a feed prepared by the company mess sergeant. Competitive drill between the men for the Drill Championship Trophy is to,start once again. The rules are - a man must win it three times or the most times in six months to acquire it permanently. The boys are polishing up the manual as well as their rifles in hopes of taking home the trophy, if only till the next night. Private E. Quaring claims the cleanest gun in the company and challenges all the members of "G" to a gun-shining contest. G. I. shoes are the source of much trouble.
