PASS SIX HOPS STArV.HOpet ARKANSAS Tuesday, December 12, 1.939 In One Minute, 36 Garand Rifles Could Annihilate An Entire Regiment • • • ^ •. . •• Thirty-six soldiers, armed with the! V. & Anny's new Garand rifle, could ! annihilate an entire infantry regiment' in 60 seconds in open country fight- ' ing. That's the opinion of officers who recently watched New York National j Guardsmen test the Garand at Camp Smith, Feckskill, N. Y. A dozen men fired at a silhouette target 200 yards away. In one minute, they registered •102 hits 300 of them bull's-eyes. The , detail averaged 34 shots per minute ' per man. It is because of this great- ; cr accuracy and firing speed that the ; Army official! yaciopteci the semiautomatic Garand to supplant the time honored Springfield. Like the Springfield, the Garand is a slip-fed shoulder rifle. But there this resemblance stops. As seen in the photo above, it uses an eight-cartridge clip instead of the Springfield's five. The loading mechanism is operated by gas pressure generated in the chamber when a cartridge is fired, eliminates the awkward manual movements necessary for successive shots with the older weapon. Instead of raising the bolt, opening the breech, closing the breech and snapping the bolt, the doughboy just squeezes the Garand's trigger. The gas cylinde is shown in muzzle view below. Gas, entering the cylinder as the bullet leaves the muzzle, operates a piston which unlocks the bolt, empties the cartridge case and ccmpresses a spring. This closes the bolt and reloads the chamber. For all ils advantages, the Garand rifle weighs only 9 1-4 pounds, a half pounds a half pound heavier than the Springfield. } GARAND RIFLE Eight shots • fired simply by squeezing trigger Five-cartridge clip I must operated manually a/ter each shot MODEL 1903 SPRINGFIELD RTF!. •RAISING A FAMILY Child's Interest Can Be Killed by Piling on Lessons Blevins i Mrs. Olin England of Hope is spending this week with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Brown.

Nearly all children learn things outside the regular school instruction. Often they lake no formal lessons and learn-only from daily experience. Again, they have music, public speaking, dancing, Scout work or essay writing.. In fuel, although the last would seem to be unimportant, the fact-is that one school board 1 know of has had to take measures. The prizes offered by groups interested in essays reached a point where school , young pcop]e h . wc f| }} - ju}] ;im , work was being neglected. | thllt is scho() , E . lch of U)cm To go back g bit, howcrc, v lel us! really get somewhere.

By PKESTON GROVER WASHINGTON — You might as well be posted on the nicknames attached to political stars and starlels because the campaigns are coming and both sides will want to humanize their proteges by ''that familiar touch." President Roosevelt was called "The Boss" by the lale Louie Howe, his wise No. 1 secretary. He is called "Nil. Big," fondly by his friends furiously by his foes. Vicc-Prcsidcnl Garner calls him "The Captain.' Everybody knows him by his initials. FDR, just like this — Ef-Dcc-Arc. 'the runner-up presidential candidates haven't generated pet names for Ihcmselves yet. When Hoover was president he was referred to as 'The Chief." His friends still use the title. General Hugh Johnson referred to Secretary Ickcs as "Honest Harold." It didn't displace Washington's "Icky the 'ick." But when Ickcs, in return. tailed Lhc general "Old Iron Pauls" that stuck.
