t
Lieutenant John H. Stodter's
platoon from Troop A, took the lead
Monday in the regimental competi
tion to determine which platoon of

been represented. This year, with
the test at Fort Clark, platoons
from the 1st, 5th and 12th Cavalry
will oompete. The prize money is
divided among the members of the
platoon and amounts to about one
month’s pay or more fpr each man.
Platoons from Troop A and B
at Fort Brown, and Troops E and
F at Fort Ringgold, will each go
through a test this week to deter
mine the one to go to Fort Clark.
The test on Monday was a 5 mile
cross-country ride over 16 jumps
with pistol and saber targets and a
time limit of 30 minutes. On Wed
nesday each platoon starts on a
march which Includes mounted and
dismounted combat, reconnaissance,
meeting hostile armored cars and
airplanes, camping and night
marching. The platoons will be out
two days.
The tests at Fort Brown take
place first, then the Judges, Major
Geoffrey Keyes, Oliver I. Holman
and Robert W. Grow go to Fort
Ringgold to test the other platoons.

One Healthful form of
Necessary Nourishment
that kids need no
coaxing to drink
Little "human dynamos” run out of "juice” between
meals. That’s why they tease for sweets. Sugar is the
quickest energy food and Mother Nature knows it. She
prompts the appetite. It’s as natural as hunger can be.
If your kiddies crave sugar, give them as much as they
want... but in a form that can’t be abused. Dr.
Pepper contains fruit juice for flavor and health ...
pure sugar for quick-energy supply... and sparkling
water for bulk and thirst. No tax on digestion. No
ingredients that can possibly harm. The small propor
tions of sugar to water is a safety-valve against excess.
