sioh Gen. Haines said "I am
sure people have heard enough
about me at this time but I
should like to set the record
straight on one point. I have
read an item attributed to a
source in Washington' that I am
one of the chief architects of
the ROAD Division. This is sim
ply not true. As a member of
the Hoelscher Committee I had
a small part in developing a rec
ommended overall Army logistic
organization comptabile with the
ROAD Division and geared to pro
vide maximum support for the
fighting man at the end of the
line. However the Hoelscher Com
mittee was not concerned with the
internal organization of tactical
units. If a single individual could
be singled out as the architect
of the ROAD Division that indi
vidual would be the Vice Chief
of Staff of the Army General
On the reactivation Gen. Haines
concluded '"Hie reservoir of tal
ent now in CCA will be spread
throughout the new division and
used to set the standards and
provide the instructors for per
sonnel to be assigned. I am sure
that the officers and men as
signed to 'Old Ironsides' look for
ward to the day when they can
take their place beside 'Hell On
Wheels' as a full combat-ready

New Process For
WASHINGTON (AFPS) A
better picture of the geographic
features of land hidden under the
ice in the Antarctic may be one
of the results of an ice measuring
process being developed by Army
Signal Corps scientists.
Using a radio-sounding tech
nique which had previously been
successful on relatively stable

Because of the greater move
ment of glaciers it was thought
that radio signals might be de
flected and produce incorrect
readings. The tests were made on
Brae Glacier in northern Canada.
No serious disruptions to the
sounding signals were detected
during the tests.
The radio-sounding method en
tails measuring the fraction of a
second it takes for signals to pen

receiver after bouncing off the
underlying soil. Radio waves
travel through ice at about one
half of the 186000 miles per sec

A number of advantages are
claimed for the radio method of
measuring ice depths over seis
mic soundings now being widely
used. In seismic sounding explos

the ice the sound waves are
picked up from the bottom by
The seismic method is expen
sive slow and requires highly
skilled seismologists. On the other
hand radio soundings can be
made quickly with relatively sim

require little special training.
