By CHAPLAIN ALBERT HOLLANDER
Everyone associated with the Armed Forces is constantly ex
horted to exercise leadership to acquire that elusive quality that
enables the leader to influence the behavior of men. The Army en
courages men who show promise to assume leadership positions and
from the very beginning of training some men are singled out and
selected for the distinction of temporary rank.
It may be wise to pause for a moment to consider just what con
stitutes leadership and to pay particular attention to the message of
religion on this subject. Research in the past decade his^ suggested
that under certain circumstances the leader acquires his ideas from
the group rather than imposing his will upon them. In all these studies
a number of age old observations were verified. First—leadership in
itself is neutral and may be directed toward both desirable and unde
sirable ends. Second—The leader should be aware of his goal. Third
—The leader should control his own behavior before attempting to
control the behavior of others.
Leadership could be utilized by a Moses and by a Korach by
David and by Jeroboam. Hitler had the ability to inspire unswerving
faith and loyalty in the minds and hearts of millions of people. Some
of us have seen motion pictures of the mass hysteria which Hitler in
duced in his audiences. Let us remember to consider leadership not
as an end in itself but rather as a means by which desirable goals
may be reached. Many of us occupying leadership have a rare oppor
tunity to influence the behavior of men toward productive and moral
Closely connected with the preceding idea is the notion that lead
ership does not take place in a vacuum. The leader functions within
a system of values and the techniques used are often determined by
the goal to be reached. Furthermore the goal also affects our evalu
ation of the leadership. The leaders of Nazi Germany and Soviet
Russia for example have often used leadership techniques with some
success however we inevitably judge the use of leadership by the
goals attained. Assuming an acceptable goal the leader should have
a clear grasp of its remafications to function properly.
Usually the ability of the leader to influence the behavior of others
is considered quite apart from the faculty of self-control. Upon exam
ination however it is clear that self-discipline the conscious governing
of will and action is the most important prerequisite to the exercise
of leadership over others. Ancient Jewish sages posed a rhetorical
question: "Who is the mighty man?" The answer was not the man
who could influence multitudes not the mun who could subdue rivals
but rather he who can control his passions the man who can hold
himself in check. In the words of the Book of Proverbs "He that is
slow to anger is better than the mighty and he that ruleth over his
spirit than he that taketh a city."
In the Armed Forces leadership situations are presented and
often thrust upon men. We must continually prepare ourselves for
these opportunities. We must be ready for any test with the confidence
and clear mind that is the result of strong self-discipline.

A green scarf has taken the place
of ties around the necks of the
Guardsmen now on two weeks sum
mer field training here.
An outgrowth of the yellow scarfs
worn by officers and men of the
5th Army during the Italian cam
paign the showy neckpieces were
suggested by the division's com
mander Maj. Gen. Albert S. John
son. The color green was accepted
since green at that time was the
armored force color.
The 49th snapped up the idea
since tankers had long favored
scarfs worn at the neck to keep
dust from sifting down their collars.
And the band of green seems des
tined to be here to stay.
