K. —Say Onlooking Sailors Approximately sixty-five students bave turned out for Carroll's new V-12 drill team which is being directed by Chief Specialists Joe Davies and John KcShane. The team has been drilling every Tuesday and Thursday on the street directly in front, of the ship, and according to arm-chair strategists, who bave been observing the drills from the recreation room, the unit is improving considerably. Chief Davies remarked that the team will be divided into two, separate platoons, if the membership continues to increase. Although no plans bave been made as yet, it is expected that the formation will perform before the public soon. Tests Coming Up For Some Men Not Yet Examined AU Y-12 students who have transferred from V-l or V-7, who are in or beyond their fourth term, and have not taken an achievement test will be given such examinations in the near future, according to information received recently from an authoritative source. It will be necessary for students just entering T-12 to take this examination also, provided they are In or beyond their second term of college work. EXAMS 0\ FTLE HEBE Students who entered V-12 form civilian life will be interested to know that their entrance examinations, while not in their permanent records, are on file here at school, and will be used as material for judgment, along with class grades, for future assignments, including those to Naval ROTC colleges and medical schools. The Naval ROTC is now the only way of obtaining a commission in the USN, rather than the USNR, besides being granted admission to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis through congressional appointment. While from the fleet, application may be made directly to Annapolis by enlisted personnel; this privilege is not granted to those in V-12 units. The HELENA, MONTAN, Vol. XXXII.—No. 2. Helena, Montana, Friday, September 24, 1943. Price Ten Cents First Jaunt Tomorrow The "Snooper's Club," an organization being formed by the Helena USO especially for men of the local navy unit, will go on its first jaunt to a gold dredge on Hauser Lake tomorrow. Bluejackets interested in making the trip, which is one of a series planned by Charles R. Webster, USO director, will leave from the "Y" building at 2:30. They will travel by car out 15 miles to the lake and ferry over to the dredge off Eldorado bar, where the mining for gold and sapphires is in operation. Other points of interest in the Helena area to be seen by the "Snooper's Club" in the next few weeks includes an old-time ghost town and camp, where dogs are trained for the war. Besides the regular Saturday night dances, smaller dancing parties are being featured in the USO lounge each Tuesday evening .from 2000 to 2200. The music appreciation group will meet at 1500, and there will be a get- together for community singing at 1700 each Sunday, Mr. Webster announced. Californians Amazed, Montanans Amuzed "Does it actually snow in the streets, or does it just snow in the mountains J" asked unbelieving Californians of tho Montana weather a few short weeks ago. lt seems that the boys from ihe land of "sunshine and wine" were more than skeptical of the tales told of Montana weather—no more, however. September 18 and a light, wet snowfall confirmed to them that it Is not incredible to have snow in early autumn here. As the snow fell, the Californians watched in amazement from their windows, while natives of "these here parts" thought the falling flakes only ordinary and expected. At least the southern mates have something to write home about. Navy Meeting Attended By President Riley The Very Rev. Dr. Emmet J. Riley, Carroll president, has been in New York City for the past two weeks attending a naval indoctrination meeting. The function of the course is to give college administrators in the V-12 program an inside view of the workings of the Navy and of the Navy's plans for V-12. Improvements Made to Entire College Plant Since the advent of the V-12 Unit, numerous improvements have been »de on the grounds and buildings of Carroll College. The improvements ere made in accordance with Navy sgulations, with accentuation on the living conditions, athletic interest, and general comfort of the Navy person- si, school officials said. Throughout the V-12 living quarters on the third, fourth, and fifth iecks, complete renovation has been accomplished. An extensive paint job, lowered and new ceiling, new wardrobes, four new lavatories and shower looms, and new lighting fixtures are Ike main alterations. Also on all three mt these decks are newly installed fire poles, with more fire fighting eciuip- ent to come. On the main deck, new offices have keen outfitted for the commanding, axecutive, and disbursing officers. The physics lecture room on the first 4eck has been expanded to meet the rush of students trying to fulfill their Navy requirements in the subject. In the gymnasium, besides a complete paint job. largo new shower rooms and four hundred wooden lockers have been added. A new roof is in the process of being applied at the present time. Now in progress is the expansion of the college kitchen. The finished product will feature larger storage rooms for canned goods and vegetables, double the present actual cooking space, provide for a new baking kitchen and a new office for the dietitian. In the past two months, new gas ranges, toasters, and a complete line of modern cooking facilities have made their appearance. In the south building, now the quarters for the V-5 contingent, an auxiliary gym on deck four is now nearing completion, which will be used by both V-5 and V-12 students during the winter months. The third deck of the aviation cadets' quarters has been remodeled with new plumbing, lighting, and painting. Condition of Unit Checked by Officers Condition of the V-12 Unit have been thoroughly checked by a number of recent visitors. Captain Maxon, from the medical department, inspected the ship's sanitation and general condition; Lieutenant Paul Washkey. head of the recreation department in the Thirteenth Naval District, made a report of the physical training program. The condition of the ship and its fire control were checked by an ensign from the Bureau of Yards and Docks, and an officer of supply recently checked the small stores and helped pay the student crew. Sailors May Head for Hills If Present Plans Work Out Fifty or more V-12ers from Carroll will be able to "rough it" in true Western fashion at one of Montana's popular dude ranches during the between-semester recess if plans which are now in the formative stage materialize, it was announced early this week by Charles R. Webster, director of Helena's UJS.O. "1 have discussed the possibility of sponsoring such an activity during the coming recess with your executive and commanding officers, and they seem to be much in favor of the affair as long as it does not conflict with the enrollment procedure for the next semester," Mr. Webster stated. Twenty-eight Men Make 2.00 Average, Listed on Honor Roll Twenty-eight navy students are included on the honor roll for the first quarter period. Honor standing is determined by the scholastic grade-point average which must be 2.00 or higher. William Wood heads the honor list with a perfect grade-point average of 3.00.

Navy Units Take Part In War Loan Drive Nearly sixty men from the V-12 Unit and a platoon of aviation cadets took part in a parade held on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 8, which marked tho opening of the Third War Loan Drive in Montana. A program inaugurating the opening of the drive was held in the Civic Auditorium after the completion of the parade. Included were selections by the Army Band from Port Harrison, and speeches by Governor Sam Ford of Montana, the Very Reverend Norbert C. Hoff, former President of Carroll, and by Lieutenant-Commander Cook, who was the Engineering Officer of the cruiser Helena which was sunk in the Pacific in July. Tho aim of the Third War Loan drive in Montana is to raise the thirty- live million dollars necessary to build and equip a new cruiser Helena. More than half of this amount has been raised already. Can You Answer These 1. What is the difference between liberty and leave J 2. Which of two conflicting orders should be obeyed? 3. What is the difference between an order and a command? i. How should the Navy overcoat be worn? 5. What happens to a Aavy man who is arrested by the civil authorities? See Page 4 for Answers. Nature of the possible trip will be largely determined by the weather during the recess period. If the weather permits, tho planners are in favor of "roughing it" in a bunkhouse; but should the weather be inclement, the facilities of a dude ranch would be more attractive, it has been decided. "In all events, we're going to ask the owner of the ranch we choose to charge the V-12 group a considerably lower rate than ordinary guests. I think that this can be done, because your recess fortunately comes at the end of the 'dude' season," Mr. Webster said. Many Activities Daylight activities during the vacation would include horseback riding, fishing, hunting, and other outdoor sports. During the contests held in the evenings singing, and iufdoor games would prevail. Mr. Webster revealed that prizes for the contests could be made available through the U.S.O. Mr. Webster announced that Jack Beauchamp, a Western artist residing in Helena, is helping him in making arrangements for the affair. The method of selecting the fifty lucky men to take the trip has not yet been determined. Date for Smoker Not Yet Set Plans are going ahead for a smoker for the ship's company although no date has been set as yet for the affair. Funds to take care of refreshments have been collected from crew members and are being held by the disbursing office. The departure of Chief Mack Bock- man, who assumed the chairmanship of the fun program, has left those duties in the hands of Chief McShane. Wrestling and boxing bouts, comedy acts, music, and group singing will make up part of the coming program, Chief McShane said. Lt. Comdr. Jack Dempsey Aids in Local Bond Drive Lt, Comdr. Jack Dempsey, former world heavyweight boxing champion and now an officer of the United States Navy, was in Helena this week to help in the Third War Loan Drive. At a local program of amateur boxing matches which Dempsey refereed, over $100,000 worth of bonds were sold. Cadets Stage Show For Public Naval aviation cadets in training here staged a field-day sports program for the public on August 29. The afternoon affair consisted of 25 minutes of precision drilling featuring a crack platoon of fast-stepping cadets, a rough and tough soccer game, an obstacle course event in which the college record was broken, and several comedy events including a three-legged race and a spinning relay.
