Remember how you felt that
first day you hit campus didn't
know your way around?.
Well multiply that by about
4,000 high school students and you
have Carroll Berry's problem this

high school day.
Berry needs student guides to
conduct the high schoolers about

by 1st Lt. Lawrence V. Ryan
The most disconcertipg thing about our present
defense effort is that, in theory, everyone hates
Communist aggression and wants forces raised
to check its advance, but practically no one wants
to share in the task himself. Nobody wants to
get down in the sand and mud and grapple with
the enemy. There appears to be the naive belief
among many Americans that if the need arises,
the job will be done by some phantom army
that will spring up, as if by magic, and instantly
overwhelm the foe.
Even persons who are more realistic, or at least
more pessimistic, assume that someone else should
. be there to meet any attack that may come. One
widespread sentiment is that Western Europeans
are not ready to do their part, that they may
not reach the quotas which General Eisenhower's
command deems necessary for our mutual de
fense. It does not, apparently, occur to such
critics that Europeans have much more reason
to feel the same way about us. Judging from our
attitude and conduct at home since the Korean
war, they would certainly be justified in doing so.
In nearly every other country, on both sides
of the Iron Curtain, the average citizen enters
the Armed Forces expecting to be trained for
combat. The USSR has placed its emphasis on
infantry and artillery with the result that it is
capable of throwing scores of divisions into
action on each of several fronts. Marshal Tito,
with an army and militia of 500,000 men, has
managed to create about 30 divisions. At the
outbreak of the Korean war, we had less than
a dozen in an army half again larger than
It is true that in most other armies, a division'
is a smaller unit than it is in our Army or Marine
corps but it is still obvious that our country,
which must keep an eye on several continents,
should have at least as many combat troops as a
nation that has only its own borders to protect.
However, in our armed forces most of the men
are auxiliaries or non-combatants, and most per
sons entering the service expect, as their birth
right, to become part of the majority.
The fact is nobody wants to be a fighting man.
This does not mean that everybody who is eligi
ble for military duty is trying to avoid it, al
though there is a great deal, of that, too. It means
precisely that nobody wants to be a fighting manv
Everybody is trying to. escape assignment to the
