have this year earned marksman­

All of these men earned their
places on the team by competi­
tion at post and army levels dur­
ing the regular season which cul­
minated in the Fourth Army

It was largely due to their ef­
forts that Fort Hood won a de­

'Let Me Die
With Dignity'

1959 issue.)
By KATHRYN MORRIS
I'd as soon be killed and eaten
by cannibals as to die in an atuo-
mobile accident.
Like anyone else who never will
elect to become a suicide I shall
not be able to choose the time the
place or the means of my own
death. But like anyone else I
have preferences.
And I can think of no more
repugnantly undignified a way for
my life to end than to become
one of the thousands who die an­
nually on our streets and high­
ways.
What impresses itself indeli­
bly upon my mind as I see
the aftermath of serious in­
jury and death in traffic
crashes is the fact that an ac­
cident victim is denied the
personal privacy and public
sympathy most -of us aspire to
when we consider our own
deaths.
With the exception of mishaps
which take place in remote or in­
accessible spots any crash im­
mediately draws a crowd of spec­
tators some of them officially
concerned most of them morbid­
ly curious.
Victims be they innocent ba­
bies once-vibrant teen-agers well

behaved adults or sedate elderly
persons are subjected to the avid
scrutiny of those who will regale
listeners for days with lurid de
tails of what they saw.
Bleeding broken clothing pul­
led indelicately awry limbs
grotesquely sprawled senses be­
fuddled or faces miroinrg the
shocking finality of sudden death
the accident victim has lost in
the moment of "impact that in­
tangible but precious commodity
known as human dignity.
It is my profound convic­
tion that every individual is
entitled to look forward to
inevitable death with sere­
nity with the assurance that
when his time comes to die
he can "wrap the draperies
of his couch about him and lie
down to pleasant dreams'
without an audience of gap­
ing strangers surrounding
him.
Almost anyone whatever his
station in life whatever his edu­
cation his religion or his per­
sonal philosophy will concede a
certain attitude of respect to­
ward the newly dead except
on the highway.
After a week all canons of
good taste good conduct and good
sense are relaxed and the mob in­
stinct prevails.
Death on a public thoroughfare
provides much the same spec­
tacle as a lynching. I want none
of it for myself or for any one I
love.

Among interested and im­
pressed— guests at Fort Hood
during Armed Forces Day acti­
vities was Dr. Monroe S. Car­
roll Provost at Baylor Univer­
sity in Waco.
In a letter to Maj. Gen.
Earle G. Wheeler 2d Armor­
ed Division and Fort Hood
commander Dr. Carroll said:
"I left the post thinking of
Fort Hood as a great university
for defense. The classrooms dis­
pensaries recreational and social
facilities the permanent bar­
racks and homes for officers
and enlisted personnel I am sure
attracts and holds higher quality
personnel."
Dr. Carroll's letter expressed
his personal appreciation for the
opportunity to visit the post and
that of Dr. William R. White
president of the university and of
Baylor University itself.
He characterized his visit as
... a most delightful inform­
ing and revealing occasion.' The
educator noted that "Every per­
son contacted at Fort Hood was
very cordial and helpful."
Dr. Carroll said he was 'very
impressed" by the equipment dis­
played by Fort Hood units. He
mentioned the communications
systems flight equipment water
purification field shower-
baths the armored vehicle laun­
ched bridge and the hospital unit.

ciation from civilian guests and
retired military personnel who
visited Fort Hood during Armed

Letters also have been receiv­
ed from commanders of military

sent equipment displays. The let­
ters are uniform in their praise
of the displays and the conduct
and efficiency of the Fort Hood

displays.
