We include a lieutenant, a supply clerk, a carpenter, tw0 fire- men, a company clerk, a dinin~ room crderly, a personnel clerk,~and a latrine orderly. All of us beg~n~ work at 8 o'clock and quit work at 4:30. Most of us do nothing or next to nothing because other people do our work for us. Others of us feel those above them are needlessly held here because they do all their work for them. The first group includes the lieutenant, the carpenter, the fire- men, the personnel clerk, the dining room orderly, and the [atrine order- ly. The other group of us includes the company clerk and the supply clerk. We will now explain: First of all, take Pat and Bob, the two firemen. They each work on a different: shbft, a day on, a day off. They are supposed to stoke the coal stoves of the kitchen and keep them clean. They also assist the cooks in minor matters, especially the heavy work of lifting crated goods. Pat end Bob are both dissatisfied with their jobs. They throw coal on the stoves and poke them once in a while..As a rule the cooks prefer to adjust them themselves, and the KP's clean them and dump them. Consequently Pat ancl Bob ~ee~ the cooks and KP's make them unneces- sary. They would like to go to the front and see some action. Their commanding officer cannot help them much. The Table of Orders of the regiment requires that he keep two firemen and should ,he release them he mi~h~ get replacements that wouldn't fit in. One of the boys ~s not we41 prepared for the front vnyway, since he has never had any basic. Their problem is insoluble on the regimental level, since replace- ments are not available. The cen- ter of the prolYlem evidently lies somewhere in Washington, in the creators of the Table of Orders. Mike, the dining room orderly, finds his situation similar to that of Pat and Bob. His main duties would seem to be the polishing of sugar bowls and salt shakers and the in- struction of ~he KP's doing tables and dishes. Alq three of the boys find themselves with little to do be- cause of the limRations of their jobs. One of the three i~ a qualified marks- man. Don and Charley are, respectively, supply clerk and company clerk. They each do a good day's work. They are busy enoug~ to be satis- fied l~hat they are essential. Un- fortunately they do their own work, and that of ,their superiors, too. This means that the "topkick" and the supply sergeant spend a good many hours of the day playing pool, snooz- ing, reading movie magazines, and interfering w~th the work of their good clerks by writing personal let- ters on ~heir typewriters. Both the clerks are healthy fellows. 2~hey are not overworked. They both feel their sergeants could stand forma- tions and do wha~ they do without any trouble, since b~h sergeants are inte~lligen~ men and not inherently lazy. When the clerks are on fur- lough the sergeants do manage quite well, in fact. It does seem stupid to ~hem, however, to insist on the privileges of the first ~hree grad- era, or on any privileges at all when a war is going on. Lieutenant Perkins and ,Fred Wrigbye, the personnel clerk, are each in the peculiar position of hav- ing their superiors do all the work while they do nothing. In each case there isn't enough work ~or superior and ~elper to keep busy all day. Their superiors are none of them overambitious; they just like to be mildly busy during the day. Lieu- tenant Perkins is a sharpshooter and Fred Wrigbye is a marksman. Bill and Dave are respectively la- trine orderly and carpenter. Bill cannot do much to the latrine in the morning because R is much in use. It takes him two to three hours to clean it, and fire the stove so the water may be hot for the evening. Tl~at is ~lt hecan doin i an immaculately clean latrine, Dave may, in the course of a month, be asked to pound nails back into the floor, where they have wriggled up, or build a table, a bench, or help a detail scrub a floor. Otherwise he joins the pool games. In total we number nine men. We are more than half the Permanent Party of a squadron, or company. Our regiment ~happens to assign 17 men to each company. We realize that if the necessary, or recommend- ed, number of reductions were made in our personnel, those remaining would have to work very much hard- er than they now do, with fewer leaves and longer hours. However, we also realiz~ that t~he sacrifice of leisure would in n~ way equal the sacrifices other American soldiers are making in the ~ountains of It- aly, or the jungles and colds of the Pacific, nor ~hat of fathers separated from their growing children. We wonder if the Army could not find its million needed men hidden some- where among the regulations of the Pentagon. :H it looks hard, it may find them wandering like shades in the basement corridors of a labyr- inth in Army bureaucracy.

Warley Schoch, Friday evening, January 14th, with fourteen men~bers present.
