Main Ph. 519 NEW YOKK, Mnr. 7. (UP)—Till Pun Alley's contribution to (ho Army. Pvt. Frnnk Loc.sscr, thn ccinpos- cr who wrote "Praise the Ixml uucl Pass Hie Ammunition." has written u new song, a ballnd, one Hint imps like this: "Oh they've BOt no time for elovy in tlie Infantry, "Oh they've uot no use for praises loudly sung, "But in every soldier's heart in all the Infantry "Shines the iinmc, shines the name of Hotlgcr Young." Chances arc (his Imllnd, which \\-cnl on sale In music stores today, won't be the big lilt ol the year. Bui nirendy It's In n class by itself for it's the first song to tell the real story about n real American .soldier in this war, Pvt. Ilodgcr Young, n native of Ohio. You see, Rodger Young was a little jsiiy, but a big hero, llio kind of a hero, says (he ballad, that men can identify themselves wilh; the kind of n guy (hat might be any guy who loves his country. Hodgcr Young probably would have been <1-F if he hadn't joined the National Guard at Fremont Ohio, in 1938. But the National Guard membership put Young in the Army, despite his defects, lie wore glasses, mid he'd hnd trouble wilh his hearing ever since a high school basketball accident in Green Springs, Ohio. Strangely enough, it was this defect in hearing that first marked Young as something of an American hero. He was nude a sergeant, but was busted from the rank, at his own request. Soldier Young was afraid llinl he might not hear an order some day in a battle, and other men would die. But it was on the evening of July 31st, 1043, thai Young displayed ail the earmarks of a hero. He and Ills buddies were lighting to win the Mimda airfield on New Georgia Island. The Japs were unloading everything they had. And Young's company was ordered to make what is railed a "limited withdrawal." The going was tough. Ttie Yanks were under fire from a Japanese machine gun. It was about 75 yards nway. None of the Americans could see the Jap gun position, none except soldier Young. And he went after it. He was hit once, but he kept on going, and firing. He was hit again. But Younjf picked himself up and he got close enough to knock out (lie BUD n-itli hand grenades But a third Jap shot hit him. and he died on the spot, at 25 years of age Young's buddies, members of the 148th Regiment, never forgot their hero. And they told his story frequently. Harmonica player Larry Adlcr heard about soldier Young last year during a USD tour of Bougainville. Rodger Young had been a harmonica player too. and he hnri strummed a yuitar on quiet nights in the Pacific. So.'Adlcr told the story of Rodger Young to composer Locsscr. It was the honorce to be read during her voyage. . The hostess served a dessert course with coffee. Just Ihe iheme the SOUR writer had been looking for. Ami lie put llie story to music, nnd he appropriately called It "UortBcr Young." Already the ballad, set to » stirring tune, is oil lo n good shut to popularity, Lawrence Tibbcl and Nelson Eddy sang it over coast-to- eoasl networks Sunday. And many Americans will buy tlie sous today. Bui, regardless of how the public accepts "Uortger Young," 11 probably will l» sung the most by the 148tli Regiment, the outfit that recently Jed (he 37lh Infantry Division into Manila. Voting was one of Ihcm, iitiri now he's (heir inspiration. Manila Soldier Dies In Battle Of Philippines Pfc. Lloyd A. Modgliu of Manila was killed in action Jan. :IO. relatives have been notified by the War Department.
