Byron Hefner Phone 442 By HAL BOYLE 1 ' ;Bamberg, Germany., Aug. ,7 —•Iff) — The oniy .corporal? (n the Third; Regiment of 'the French Moroccan 1 ! Goums who holds a major gener-' al's.rank in the American Army is Uncle Sam's chief cop overseas' — Ernie ("Old Gravel Voice") ; Harmon. His honorary rank with the dusky Goums — comrades of the campaign in Italy — is only one of some 25 medals and honors won by Harmon, chief of the nse\y mobile American constabulary force in Germany, during the war years. Now in peace this chunky, squint-eyed veteran has Inherited the mantle of Gen. George S. ("Old Blood and Guts" Patton, •J'-,, his former boss, as :the toughest, roUghestttalking commander in the army. Harmon has been given the hard- nest J9b injhe Reich he helped conquer-Hhe t^sk-pf building 30,QOO ' constabulary trooper's;- into a fast moving, hard-striking force able to police and control the American zone when the rest of the occupation army goes home. Jn seven-a-.day inspection speeches he tells, his men: ''You're going to be soldiers : the German people have to respect, never had a second-rate .outfit, and I'm not .going to startmow. You're gojng to be the best outfit in the, American Army — if you aren't already." Harmon likes personal contact With his -men. He speaks their language, knows their tricks. He is stern with them but they like the way he has of cracking down and- removing inefficient or pretentious officers. 'Ernie is short, heavy-set and bpld w\th close-set eyes like an angiy porcupine,ti^id a manner of speech that icsembles W.C. Fields. His voice sounds as if it had to fight its way out through gravel be4 in his larynx, and that gave him.hjs nickname, Nobody ever has been known, however ,to us.e it to his (ace. ',t 52 Harmon, pentathlon ath- in tlie 1884 Olympics at Paris, still walks the boots off his young staff officers. He is an intense, worker, an /•expert organizer and' Ability to transmit his own competitive spirit and morale to his men. During a conivial party at which he was standing beside a giant Russian commander, he squinted up at his ally and told his inter"Tell that . big guy the only things- I like to do are eat, drink and fight." The remark was right down the big .Russian's alley. He and Harmon became fast friends. The record shows Ernie probably likes fjghting best. He is the only man in military history to command all three American heavy armored divisions — the First, Second and Third — nnd he is the army's most experienced combat tank leader. . He cornered and beat into surrender the remnants of Rommel's Afrika Corps in Tunisia, spearheaded the breakout from Anzio ; beachhe;ad';. brqke the Siegfried line and- flung back the German vanguard at Celles, Belgium, in the "Battle of the Bulge." "The time I was most worried," he says, "was the night before We went ashore at Safi in Mororco, We weren't sure until we landed Whether It .'was going to be a fight pr a florie," Grumpy bluntness is a cardinal Harmon virtue. He knows his worth and has never let higher brass step on his toes. Reporting in person on one of his victories, he was amazed when the higher commander, instead of greeting him with a compliment, inquired testily: "Why aren't you wearing new shoulder insignia?" the He stamped upstairs lo tht commander's suite, took a pair of insignia from a jacket hanging there, put them on his own shoulders; and stomped back down again. . "Didn't know we had one, graveled Harmon. "Been busy fighting. I'll borrow yours t " _. r 'See anything else wrong, gen- erai?" he demanded. 90TTUD MNDER AUTHORITY OF THE CQCA-COU COMPANY BY NOW • Thursday ^DllFfP TAVf Rf SUNDAY — • ON STAGE • in PERSON PETER PAUL ' -nnd r, Ml ' s - Loc.
