MONDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1940 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE ::I How U. S. Tanzer 9 Divisions Will Be Equipped American Youths Take Naturally To Armored And Mechanized Monsters By WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Siaft Correspondent PORT KNOX, Ky., Nov. 25.—A complete of gray gumbo dust hid the face of the kid from .southern Ohio a.s he hauled him- .sell out of the turret of a light tank. He had to crack the dust with a smile to register satisfaction in this thought: Three months ago he \va.s driv- j ing a tractor on hLs father's farm. Today he Ls in command of a tank in an outfit that is at least the equal of any armored unit of ^qual si2e in the v;orld. American kids know and like machinery. Their grandfathers tinkered with bicycles. Their i'atheis mir.sed the first one-lung auto.s around the block. Tanks are duck- .soup for these boys. The armored force of the United States is small as yet, but it Ls safe to say that no other country ever developed so good a mechanized unit so quickly. Lieut.-Col. Percy G. Black, who as assistant military attache in Berlin watched the whole development of the German '"r.vinzerv divisions, 'io confident that they have nothing better than this U. S. first armored division, organized last July 10. There is a second at Fort Benning, Ga.; on March 15, a third will be ready, and June 15 a fourth, plus 10 general headquarters tank battalions. 11,500 MEN, 19,000 WEAPONS This kind of progress is possible only because officers can't shoo these kids away from the garages. Saturday afternoons and even Sundays, they'll be there, poking around the tanks, eager to get it all figured out, quick. They're observant and critical, and several minor improvements in the tanks have already been made as a result of their shrewd observations. This first armored division in. action is a grim thing to watch. Attacking a hypothetical enemy marked by targets drawn on a track across a distant hillside. 155 howitzer shells whir overhead to burst with dull detonations around the target, already spotted "by flights of observation planes. De- tacliments of .30 and .50 caliber machine-gunners whirl up in armored cars, dismount, slap their guns into position and spray the target with a shower of tracer bullets which ricochet at odd angles, hundreds of feet in the air. Suddenly great puff-clumps of smoke appear off at the right, so fired by howitzers that che smoke drifts directly across the front. Then come three successive waves of tanks, nosing their way like de• te'rmined iron ferrets through the smoke, dust and brush. The concentration of fire ahead of these tanks Ls tremendous, for the 11.500 men of tins division have at then- disposal 19,000 weapons. Having "captured" their objective, the tanks wheel back to the starting point, pausing to put out the grass and brush fires inevitably started by the tracer bullets. Rule is, every crew puts out the blazes started by its own fire. The Fort Knox reservation has been recently enlarged enough so that there's plenty of room for this kind of exercise with ball ammunition, aand even the small grass fires don't inconvenience anybody overmuch. Back to the garages go the tanks, with the dust-masked soldiers happy in their mastery over a new and terrible gadget. "MAE WEST" IN THE ARMY Expensive playthings they are. too. You begin to get the idea when you realize that to fill just once all the gas tanks of all the vehicles of this armored division requires about 100,000 gallons of gasoline. 304, gun; 387, Clifford Ausustus Mc- Kin/ie. 383.

Since the division strings out for nearly CO mile's while "on the march." it would take forever to "pull up at the pump" one at a time, to refuel. So trucks speed down the halted column dropping off drums of gasoline, which each vehicle then takes on individually. To keep moving a super-gadget like this needs not only actual training, but also the kind of love for the machines that prompts the j men to call a certain type of tank ' with twin circular turrets a "Mae West."
