A TRIANGULAR TACTICAL SET-UP As a model for the streamlinm'i of all 10 Regular Army, divisions, the .Second is called "triangular." The tactical idea, as Colonel Shori explained it for a layman, i.s thnt ii.s main components are three infantry regiments, any two of which can heroine, the spearhead of -n attack, with the third in support, I The pattern is carried all th" ! way down—three battalions in a ! regiment, three companies in a battalion, three platoons in a company, three squads in a platoon. A platoon, however, "has an attached squad of automatic riflemen, who in theory could stand in the middle of the triangle and bang away in any direction. Tn exactly the same way. the triangular division itself incloses a lot- of heavy artillery. Anyway, it's a big outfit, with 15,074 weapons and 1841 trucks In For Our Stove Heat from the High-Power Burner is so intense it sets fire to a pencil held crt Ihe cooking grale-10 inches from the flame.
