NEWS Two 'Hitches' In Aleutians More Ttiah Enough F6/- Code* Aviation Cadet Robert. V. Johnson of Class 44, Is In n rut and Is ssimistlc over his chances of getting out of it. "I'm the oi'lglnr.l lough !uck euy," he complains. "And my luck has been bad. to long I've given up.hope of it, getting any better. For example, when 1 was still a civilian times were pretty hard, so I took,a Job driving a bulldozer for u construction company in the Aleutians. • We were building an Army-Navy, air. base there and the work wasn't so bad, but let me tell you, brother, the Aleutians aren't what (he doctor ordered .for n vacation rasoil. Well, I stood' It for 11 months, then I got out and came back to the States. I worked for construction companies throughout the country far n while mid was having a swell time imlil the clay I go^ a personal invilalioii from (he President. D'ya know what happened? They took me into [he Army and, before I could even think of (lie cuss words -that befitted the situation, I was in the Aleutians." That was in the summer of 1042 and Johnson was assigned observer Tor a coast artillery gun crew. "It was pretty, awful," he re- nte;. "In fact, It war, worse thnu being up there as a civilian. I was on Kodink Island and, after we got our guns set up, we lived in siv-mnn tents for aboin four or live months. The only time we ifll a break from them was when we were on night duty at our guns. Then, we slept in bomb shelters." After a while, though, modern Gl barracks were erected mid Die artillerymen got some relief from Hie inclement weather. The sliel- ers were equipped with, oil heaters find were warm and comfortable. "We even fixed things up so It wasn't too bad when we were with the guns." relates Johnson, "We got hold of a caterpillar and moved mi old trapper's cabin over close lo our installation. Then we made a heating, stove .out of an old tin barrel and had things pretty easy from then on." . TJie artillerymen were ,alto provided with the warmest ot clothing—stuff built to keep out the wind nnd the rain, but life was no picnic there in the Aleutians, "It was the monotony that got us,'; recall-; Johnson. "During ihc summer ll'd still be l;ro;ul .daylight r.t 2300 o'clock and dawn came about 01CO. Thai meant that the Eim crews had lo stay on tlie alert for enemy attack during most of Ihc 24 hours of. (lie day. We got so we'd have given a locker-lull of pin-up girls for Die slfiht of the guys responsible for us having to be there. "During the winter it wasn't so had, just. pretty dull. The cold weather mid iwg nights started In November, nnd the thaw began .'.•omellniD In April. There wasn't much danger of the Japs starting anything during that season, so we had Bailie snap duty hitches. But, there wasn't Anything to while away the hours so lime ining pretty heavily on our hands," In the spring of 1043, though, Johnson got a break. That was when he qualified as an aviation cadet. By June he was back in the States and hud begun his flying training. Now, lie's an underclassman here and is thrilled over the prospect of bars and wings, but lie's still a thorough-going pessimist. "With my luck," sny.s lie grimly, "I'll probably be sent- back lo the AleutJnns as a flying officer."
