New Supply Courses
Boost Economy Effort
Supply economy at Fort
Hood is getting a new boost from
the 1st Armored Division supply
officer (G-4) Lt. Col. Julian P.
Fox who recently launched three
supply courses turning out 150 sup'
ply-conscious graduates a month.
An officers' course operates on
a two-week schedule of three hours
each afternoon allowing 1st Arm
ored Division officers time to at
tend the school without interferring
with normal training operations
Half of the student's time is spent
in lectures and half in practical
A two-week supply course is con
ducted by the NCO Academy for
enlisted personnel. In addition the
NCO Academy conducts a three-
week supplementary course for
personnel on the job.
In addition to the supply courses
the 1st Armored has a supply audit
team making detailed audits of a
unit's property and administrative
records. If the unit supply room is
found to be below standard the
audit team instructs unit person
nel in the correct procedure of ad
ministration and property account

aid of properly trained personnel
and supply consciousness he hopes
the 1st Armored Division will soon
have the highest standard of any
division level supply system in the
Pointing out the necessity for a
school that emphasises the detail
of the Army supply system Col
onel Fox said "Army supply is a
tremendous job—especially at an
armored installation like Fort
Hood. Here the supply officer of
a tank company is charged with
more than five million dollars worth
of equipment and supplies. This is
a tremendous responsibility."
Many of the lower unit officers
are veterans of World War II com
bat where losses were charged to
combat and many are young offi
cers who come into the Army with
little understanding of the size and
scope of their supply duties he
"By setting up a school we are
able to teach them the details of
their work and give them some
thing practical that they can use
right now on the job" Colonel Fox
The officers' supply course now
in its second cycle with 45 stu
dents has been well received by
the officers throughout the division
Colonel Fox said. Graduates ques
tioned after completing the course
were enthusiastic and eager to of

"We hope to continue the sup
ply school until every officer in the
1st Armored and attached units has
completed the course" he said.

QM Corps Tests 'Staydry' Thread
WASHINGTON (ANF) Wea
ther minded Army researchers
have eliminated a common gripe
among combat men leaking
seams in rain wear.
The Army Quartermaster Corps
has developed a method to help
keep soldiers dry during long
periods of exposure to rain. A
new treatment for thread used in
sewing water repellent Army
clothing prevents water from
seeping through its seams.
Tests show that ordinary cotton
thread can be treated for water-
repellency in the same manner
that cloth is treated. Seams
sewed with the""- treated thread
showed no leakage after more
than seven hours of exposure to
three inches of rain per hour while
seams sewed with untreated thread
showed leakage in 15 minutes.
The QM Corps sent 500 field jac-
