Pictures Used
To Instruct The
Army Officers
There has been a lot of publicity
about how the army is being mechan
ized. That modernization applies
just as well to methods of instruction
for officers and non-commissioned of
ficers of the 115th Infantry. They
are going to the movies now for their
Twice a week all of the officers
and non-commissioned officers at
tended schools at night for instruc
tions in various phases of military
tactics. Heretofore the schools had
been conducted separately by the
three battalions of the regiment. Col.
D. John Markey, of Frederick, com
manding officer of the regiment,
Monday night, however, instituted a
regimental school for the officers and
non-commissioned officers. This
school will repluce one of the twice
weekly battalion schools.
Through Col. Markey’s efforts vis
ual education methods were introduc
ed to keep the 115th in step with
other advanced army techniques. The
motion picture method is explained
by Col. Markey as being particularly
clear in its instruction. Monday
night every available seat in the regi
mental recreation hall was filled as
a capacity attendance observed the
first motion picture class. Map read
ing and all its details were distinct
ly outlined.
Not only is the visual method out
standing for its clarity but it also is
a time saving device aimed particu
larly for expediting instruction. As
Capt. Guy Anders, commanding of
ficer of Company A, of Frederick,
expressed it after the map reading
movie on Monday night, “If I could
have seen such films before attending
map reading classes it would have
saved me about three gallons of mid
night oil.”
Even the privates first class and
the buck privates are taken into con
sideration in the new educational sys
tem. Many times it has been impos
sible for all the men in the regiment
to attend the different classes in
cluded in an extensive military pro
gram and the men who did not rate
as non-commissioned officers got
their instruction by the older teach
ing method. But when the movies

the film is shown again for any in
terested privates. That way Col.
Markey believes that each man will
be able to gain better and sounder
instruction. Not that the officers
and non-commissioned officers are
not capable—the movies just do it a
little better in some subjects. They
have been prepared by experts in the
particular subject matter presented.
Fire of unknown origin, which
started in the form of an explosion,
completely destroyed a 53 feet cruis
er yacht, owned by Rolf Selquist, of
McKeesport, Pa., Wednesday, April
2nd. The yacht was completely equip
ped for living purposes and well fur
nished. On board the boat were Cap
tain Sam Taylor and James Conner,
of Chincoteague, who were bringing
the yacht from Norfolk to Chincotea
The accident occurred near Fisher’s
Island. The occupants of the boat
were forced to abandon immediately
and get in a small boat. They wish
to express their appreciation for
the quick action of the Smith’s Is
land Coast Guard crew, who came
to their rescue in so short a time.
“They surely were on the job,” is the
expression Taylor and Conner made
concerning the crew. Coast Guards
men took them to the station and lat
er carried them to Magotha where
they were sent home.

In the role of observers, Ameri

raid Germany.
Reporting this, authoritative
sources explained the observers’ as

With a similar mission, American
naval officers have been stationed
for months on ships of the British
fleet in the Atlantic and Mediterran
Numbers of Army observers al
ready are in England ready for the
new assignment. Others are believ

Mediterranean and Balkans.
Because of possible diplomatic and
military complications, both the War

More than 50 Boeing and Consoli

4,000 or 5,000 miles with heavy bomb
loads, have been turned over to Brit

in November by General George C.
Marshall, War Department Chief of
Staff. Not all have been delivered,
Twenty-six Boeing B-17 planes
were exchanged for British-owned en

Responsible sources said that none

men, has yet been under fire.

The Governor
Secures Much
The session of the General Assem
bly, just closed, saw the passage of
numerous measures backed strongly
by Governor Herbert R. O’Conor to
clarify and strengthen the laws per
taining to taxation and insurance,
both of greatest importance to the
revenues of the State and to the safe
guarding of the insurance interests
of many thousands of Marylanders.
Five measures drawn up by the
Rawls Commission were enacted in
to law, dealing with various phases
of the State’s fiscal structure. This
Commission appointed two years ago
by Governor O’Conor, and headed by
William Lee Raw’ls, one of the State’s
foremost authorities on fiscal legis
lation, made a thorough study of tax
structure of the State, and as a re
sult of this study had ten bills intro
duced, nine of which have passed and
are now awaiting the Governor’s sig
At the same time, some 29 meas
ures drafted at the request of the
State Insurance Commissioner, John
B. Gontrum, were introduced and

that not only will bring increased
revenues by broadening the licensing
basis for insurance companies and
representatives but, of even more a
cute importance, from a general
Stute-wide standpoint, will afford im
measurably greater safeguard for
Marylanders buying insurance from
any of the many companies now op
