SATURDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1040 BliYTHEVlLLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS On Alert DownTanama Way "Sandy" Jarman's Command On War Fooling For Year Already BY ELEAXOIt MclLHENNY N'ivA Special Correspondent BALBOA HEIGHTS, Panama Canal Zone, Dec. 20. — Probably nearest to active service of any £ organization in the United States Army at the present time—with the possible exception of the forces 5n Hawaii—Is the Coast Artillery Command of the Panama Department. This outfit, with a strength of 12.000 men and with an expected increase of several thousand within the next two months, has been I on a war footing- almost since the arrival of the initial 800 of the first contingent in September, 1939. During the first few weeks of the European war. this outfit, comprising the 62nd. Coast Artillery from Port Totten, N .Y., and a smaller detachment of the 61st Coast Artillery from Port Sheridan, III., was rushed to teh Isthmus. In the New York battalion were two gun crews which had won the international championships in 1937 at Port Ontario, N. Y.. and set a new world record for anti-aircraft artillery; ,41 shots per minute per gun/eight hits on a target 14,000 feet high in 12 seconds (eight hits out of 18 .shots). These 'forces brought so many machine and anti-aircraft guns and so much ammunition that Canal port authorities forbade their transport to clock at the piers in Cristobal. Within a short time they began to make their presence felt. From their first bases at the coast artillery posts of Ports Randolph and Amador. respectively, at the Atlantic and Pacific entrances to the Panama ' Canal, they began slowly to expand until today their units cover the 10-mile wide, 50-mile long strip of land which acts as a cushion around the canal NEW ROADS LEAD TO WHERE? For many years there have been coast batteries in place at the coast artillery posts of Forts Randolph and Sherman, flanking the Atlantic entrance to the canal, Forts Amador and Kobbe and (he fortified islands of Perico. Naos. and Flamenco on the Pacific side of the Isthmus. Some of these forts are equipped with the''army's; great 16-inch / guns,-' ; Avhile others haVe as their main a'rm;flie 14-inch dis-' appearing rifles.'"There are also batteries of 15-inch railway guns at each end of the canal. Tlie latest additions to the fortifications are the anti-aircraft and searchlight batteries which stud Lihe hills near the most vital points *'—the locks, dams and viilnerable Gaillard Cut. •The'location of these batteries is the most closely guarded ,of military secrets but Isthmian residents are aware that almost every new road -which has appeared so mysteriously in the past year probably leads, to a concealed outpost back in the hills. The men who staff these jungle batteries pride themselves on belonging- to the organization. They call themselves "Januarys Jungle Coast 'Artillerymen," for their commander, Maj. Gen. Banderforcl Jannan, who is a great-hulk of a man. almost 6 feet 4 Inches in height and weighing well over 200 pounds. He is 56. Born in Louisiana, he worked his way through Louisiana .

SOLDIERS DO BUILDING The men of the Panama Coast Artillery are a fine cross-section of the army in the field as it is constituted today. A typical example of the organization is Battery "T" of the' 73rd Coast Artillery. The position of the battery is "somewhere in the Panama jungles." In visiting it the writer left the main road at a sentry booth where there. was a stop for identification while the sentry on duty telephoned to the battery position to assure clearance up the hill. > The road led around curves—U and otherwise — around, corners screened by heavy jungle growth in the interest of camouflage to a slightly clearer space lined with partially painted, recently built frame buildings. '• This particular battery has a 1 personnel of 80 men and three officers. - ,,. The average age of the men in the battery is about 24, although two World War veterans are in a patient in Campbell's Clinic following an accident in which she broke her hip.
