JACKSON The first phase of the fall ma neuvers is completed without "bloodshed", so to speak on either side, for the problem was over be fore the real fight began. This was a "feeler" problem, and when the two armies Red and Blue were finally arranged in battle for mation, the results desired for naa been obtained, and so on Wednes day morning, ,the 120th Infantry returned to its base camp for the rest of the week. As always when returning from the field, the rest of the week was devoted to clean ing up soiled equipment prepara tory to the Saturday inspection. Retreat at five o'clock has been formal every afternoon except Wednesday and last Sunday, It certainly is Impressive to realize that the entire group of soldiers who compose the First Army are at the same moment all over North and South Carolina standing at attention, and saluting -the colors of our great nation., We were lucky or unlucky (de pending on how you look at it) to have been in corps reserve this past week's maneuver, which meant that for the most part we just sat around and waited to see what might happen. The 120th Infantry did not come into contact with the enemy in any large body during the entire problem. There were some enemy troops in the area about ten miles away from us, but these, like our own, were merely detached patrols, sent out to glean information about the enemy. We captured quite a few of these "scouts". WELL-WELL! American wine consumption ia on the rr.pid rise. Total apparent con sumption in the U.

'lkU . Mr. and Mrs. Geore. I Miami, have announXti Monday, The young arrival U the 'i t of Judge anH iw r. Pi i, of Waynesvill,; mS During these maneuvers, because the soldiers are so far from home and generally located in remote areas which have very few nat ural recreation facilities, Uncle Sam in cooperation with the cities of the two states is providing transportation for the soldiers to various cities Outside of the ma neuver area. In this way, when particular towns are designated for the recreation of a particular unit, then a uniform number of soldiers are in each town, and no one town is overflowing. The 120th Infantry has been given Gastonia as one of the towns to which free government transpor tation will be provided on every free week-end during the maneuv ers. This past week-end there were also convoys of our troops to Lancaster, where the good peo ple of the town had invited 1,000 enlisted men of the 120th Infantry to a supper and street dance. . I couldn't say too much about the real hospitality these friendly people are offering us. In every town we pass through you can see where so many citizens have open ed their homes and clubs have pro vided rooms for the soldiers to re lax. Free showers, and places to go write letters, etc., are provided in almost every town. Great Falls, S. C. is not a very large place, but it offers at least ten such places and also a lounge for of ficers. '- For those who are hot able to make trips away from camp, the regiment purchased its own mo tion nicture eauinment in order that the men could be given free movies on the field during the ma neuvers. So far we have had three crood nictures. Because we have no electric lines, our own power has to be generated on the field. This is done by using a generator attached to a belt connected with the rear wheel of a jacked-up truck. The whole affair is home-made and the first two movies were pre sented in rather an amateurish manner, with occasional breaks and interruptions in the sound tract, etc., but" now " experience " has brought about changes, so that now a creditable performance is given. The same amplifying sys tem used for our church service on the field is brought into Use for the movies. This, plus band concerts by our band boys under the direction of Warrant Officer Burt, will give you an idea that we aren t exactly and entirely "stuck" way out here from no where, even if there isn't a home in sight for miles around.
