An Army Has to Eat - And Battery B Eeiis Mighty Good ! A full-scale field kitchen was set up and manned at the Battery B maneuvers held last Sunday on the C. S. Shipler farm north of ASgona. Preparation of the "vittles" and cleansing of mess gear after the feed was closely inspected by the C.O. and non-coms, and everything was spotless. Pictured at left is the mess detail unloading gear and provisions for the noon chow from a 2 1 /? ton Army truck. The weather was nippy, and after a full morning of field maneuvers the unit laid into the chow in true soldier style. Your reporter — who took these pictures in the field — can testify to the excellence of the Battery B's mess, for he had a couple of ham sandwiches that were 'out of this world' ! Incidentally, milk and cream for the day-long maneuvers was donated by the Algona Co-Op Creamery Co. NORTH IOWA ASPHALT CO. CORN CO JOS. WEIDENHOFF, INC. Local Guard 'Enemy Men who are grocery clerks, carpenters, farmers, mechanics, book-keepers in private life turned out as a crack field artillery unit last Sunday and in full scale maneuvers conducted on the C. S. Shipler farm north of Algona "repulsed" an imaginary enemy that was approaching from the southeast of Algona. The unit was Battery B of the 194!h Field Artillery Battalion, commanded by 1st Lt. Del Carver, of Algona. The battery cf 48 men (present strength) conducted full scale maneuvers, complete to communications lines strung for miles in front of the battery position, fox holes, forward observation posts, etc. In fact, though the residents there had no inkling of it, the village of Sexton was under "heavy fire" from the giant 155 mm. Howitzer of the battery for several hours - the reason being that "enemy outposts" had moved up into Sexton and were "endangering" infantry units massed behind the local artillery battery unit. Countless "rounds" of 96-pouncl shells were dropped in the enemy area , and at the end cf the dav-lcnq maneuver it was "determined" that the enemy was turned back. How Sexton fared is not exactiv known at this time, but since the entire action was a "dry run" it is presumed that Sextonites are as hale and hearty as ever. Photos on this page, taken during the maneuvers, highlight activities cf Battery B as they were conducted las? Sunday. The "Brass" Solves a Maneuver Problem In action in the above photo are the commanding officer of Buttery B of the 194th Field Artillery Bn., and two high-ranking non-coms. Speaking on the field radio phone is 1st. Lt. Del Carver, commander of the battery. Kneeling at left is 1st. Sgt. Alan Anderson, permanently detailed to the battery and on full- time duty at the National Guard Armcry here. In the center is Scjt. 1st Class E. E. Fabrizio, who is handling the "clip-board problem". All activity is directed to correct sighting and firing of the huge howitzer. The Fire Direction Center in Action All equipment, vehicles and tents of the local Battery were set up on the Shipler farm last Sunday exactly as if the unit were facing a "live enemy." Performing the important function of fire direction is the g»oup above. In charge is Sgt. Chuck Simmons, center. At left is Lt. Hoiciing looking on, and at right Pfc. Ronald Ludwig.
