Way-Paying Recruits
Spend Most of First
Day Sitting Down
Hard Drill Is Forecast
For Fort Meade BPs
Beginning Monday
By the Associated Press.
FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md.,
July 6.—Those business and profes
sional men turned soldiers for a
month did most of their training
sitting down at this Army post
today—and many of them wished
more of it was standing up, for
an Army transport truck is no plush
seat.
By Monday night, they’ll probably
wish more of it was sitting down,
for it's going to be a long day then
of drill and more drill, entrucking
and detrucking, and calisthenics
and what-not—pretty hard on ten
derfeet.
Many of the 235 trainees from
Maryland. Virginia, Pennsylvania
and the District of Columbia, who
planked down $43.50 for a month's
keep to learn about the Army, were
up like schoolboys before the first
call of reveille at 5:45 a.m. today.
The Regular Army men only winked
about that.
Take Oath of Allegiance.
By 6 a m. they briskly gathered
for first assembly and by 6:30 am.,
long before most of them normally
awaken, they had had breakfast.
They took the oath of allegiance, in
ranks for the first time, and loaded
into trucks for a ride to the camp
theater where Maj. Percy Black of
the field artillery lectured them
on the Nazi blitzkrieg in Poland.
After that they took it easy until
lunch and turned out for softball,
where most of them huffed and
puffed after running out a single
(when they managed to bat one out
of the infield). Some of them, less
sure of their feet, chose volley ball
for loosening up.
Gordon C. Whiting. Baltimore
W'riter, observed that "the boys are
taking it seriously and are bound
to get their $43.50 worth. So far
we’ve enjoyed it.”
Recruits Tabbed "BPs.”
The Regular Army men tabbed
the recruits "BPs” (business and
professional), and a 39-year-old
Pennsylvania lawyer, name un
known, disclosed with pride that a
regular sergeant had said, “The
BPs drill better than we do al
ready.” Another regular wiped off
the grin as he added. “The first
day is always the easiest.”
Joe West. Philadelphia real estate
broker, entertained no false ideas,
saying:
‘‘It would be a lot better if they
could air-condition the drill field
and put a little more padding in
the seats of the transport trucks.”
Opening at Plattsburg
Strikes Somber Note
PLATTSBURG, N. Y., July 6 —
Gov. Herbert H. Lehman somberly
launched a 30-day military training
period for 3.000 boys and business
men today with a prediction that
defeat of England will bring armed
invaders to American shores.
Speaking at the birthplace of
| "the Plattsburg idea*-” under which
businessmen first volunteered a
f quarter century ago for training in
i behalf of preparedness, Gov. Leh
man appealed for compulsory serv
ice as the “only way” to obtain
sufficient fighting men.
More than 2,000 C. M. T. C. youths
and 800 men from business and
professions listened soberly to the
Governor, then heard Col. Julius
Ochs Adler of New York City, presi
dent of the Military Training Camps
