‘Seek . . . Strike . . . Destroy’
Men are taught to
fight tanks at Camp
Hood, Texas, the on
ly training area in
the nation devoted
exclusively to the
technique of enemy
tank destruction.
“Seek, strike, de
stroy! ” is the motto
of the tank destroyer
corps. To carry out
their assignments
successfully, the sol
diers of the corps
must possess the wily
cunning of the guer
rilla fighter, and un
limited courage.
» m At Camp Hood
every new method
of tank destroying is
taught. Accompanying pic
tures were taken while one
tank destroyer unit was en
gaged in maneuvers.

This tank hunter demonstrates
technique of throwing a sticky
grenade at an enemy tank.
Typical tank hunters await the order to go into action. The bot
tles are incendiary grenades known as “Molotov cocktails”—in
vented in Russia. They contain gasoline and are thrown at open
ings in the tanks to set them afire. The three greasy socks are
sticky grenades.

the highest eminence of the Pali
sades—making the world safe for
cloud-fanciers and rainbow fans.
However, he doesn’t make the mis
take of Ibsen's brand, which led his
people up so high they froze to death.
High Tor is to Mr. Anderson the
symbol of resistance against totali
tarian quarry companies which
would grind the cosmos through
their rock-crushers, and also the
symbol of certain ideas with which
he garlanded it in his play, "High
Tor,” of 1937. It has high visibility
and has rallied behind Mr. Ander
son citizens far up and down the
Hudson, and we know that remotely
heard thunder is not Rip Van Win
kle’s elfin bowling team.
As head of the committee to
save High Tor, Mr. Anderson is
engaged in an effort to prove
himself a poor prophet. In his
play, he prophesied that the
man who owned it ultimately
would sell it to the quarry com
pany, to be hacked down. Old
Elmer Orden, the owner, died
last April and High Tor was
thrown on the market. Mr. An
derson's neighboring poets, art
ists and playwrights are swarm
ing out of their remote hideouts
to save the mountain.
Among them are Amy Murray,
much beloved poet, who two years
ago published a book of verse,
poignantly beautiful, much of it
about the mountain, and worthy of
more attention than it received, and
Henry Poor, the artist. Mr. Poor’s
painting of the mountain hangs in!
the Metropolitan museum. He and
Miss Murray head the fund-raising
subcommittee to buy the mountain
and turn it over to the Palisades
Interstate Park commission as
a permanent bird and game sanctu
ary and a high hurdle for hikers—
for Pegasus, too, it would seem as
many a chaplet of verse has been
hung on the mountain.
Somewhat farther down toward
sea level, Mr. Anderson is pro
moting a prizefight for the Fight
ing French Relief committee. He
seems always to be asking him
self “What price glory?” Just
now he is gathering in slathers
of money from his hit play,
“Eve of St. Mark,” ringing up
$300,000 for the movie rights
alone, and such glory always
drives him to unforeseen en
deavors. When he hits a Jack
pot he is apt to summon rela
tives and friends and say:
“Have a farm or an education
on me.”
Mr. Anderson and his fellow
craftsmen of the arts have led the
old-timers up our way to conclude
that poets and artists are all right
if they behave themselves. The lat
ter meet them halfway. There has
been a new community solidarity in
Rockland county, Now York, which
has stirred it to more than its
population share of war-winning ac
tivities. Mr. Anderson has made

Lynn Says:
The Score Card: More foods
have come in under the ceiling
price list. Foods exempt from
March ceilings but under the
new ceilings are poultry, mutton,
butter, eggs, cheese, canned
milk, onions, white potatoes, dry
beans, corn meal, fresh citrus
fruits and canned citrus fruits
and juices. Take this list to the
market with you and make sure
you do not pay any more for
these items than you paid for
them between September 28
through October 2.
The 2V4-pound meat allowance
must include meat for you, your
dogs, cats and other pets. It
includes meat eaten in your
house by guests, meat eaten by
you in restaurants, and bone
gristle and waste that comes with
edible meat. It includes bacon,
sausage and canned meat.
It does not include scrapple, or
the variety meats like liver,
heart, kidneys, tripe, and brains.
The allowance includes beef,
lamb, veal, mutton and pork—
but excludes poultry, eggs and
fish. Stretch your meat allow
ance with these and meat ex
tenders like oatmeal, cereal and
bread crumbs.
Coffee rationing will mean that
you have to consider other
sources for hot drinks these cold
days. First, you can probably
stretch your coffee by using a
"coffee stretcher" — using half
I coffee and half stretcher. You’ll
like fruit juices, hot and cold,
milk for drinking, hot soups,
bouillon and consomme.

A medical officer during the last
war in charge of a field ambulance
station found that he was complete
ly isolated from all help and directly
in the path or the
advancing enemy.
His patients were too
badly wounded to be
moved and so he re
mained at his post.
Fortunately just be
fore the enemy was
upon his station they
were driven back.
Asked if he was
scared, this medical
officer replied: “Was
Dr. Barton 1 scared? You bet
your life I was
scared. I was never so scared in
my life, but I was caught there flat
footed with my patients and had to
get over my scaredness. Perhaps
I was too scared to do anything
It would appear that being scared
and admitting that we are scared is
helpful to all of us; we should not
be ashamed of being scared.
This knowledge that fear is natu
ral and that fear makes us do un
usual things or that fear makes
symptoms over which we have no
control has helped and is helping
victims of air raids in Great Britain.
In the British Lancet, Dr. H. Wil
son states that of 697 civilian pa
tients brought to the first-aid post
during air raids 134 were suffering
from acute emotional disturbance,
temporary paralysis and stupor due
to fright and anxiety. All left the
hospital within 24 hours and only six
returned. They were told that their
symptoms were due to fear which is
shared by all persons and that it
was important that they should re
turn to their normal work and resist
the temptation to exaggerate the ex
periences through which they had
It has been found that these nerv
ous patients who have undergone air
raids are less disturbed and afraid
than patients, less nervous, who
have never experienced air raids.
"The admission and acceptance of
fear is a safeguard against break
downs under acute stress. The
anxiety that requires attention at the
first-aid post may be aided by dis
pelling fear by reassuring the out
patients that their symptoms are
just natural.”

Delaying Operations
With Diet, Medicine
A patient consults his physician
and is told that the symptoms are
due to gall bladder trouble. To
make sure of the diagnosis a gall
bladder dye test with X-rays is
made and the patient is advised to
have the gall bladder removed. Nat
urally the patient wishes to avoid
operation and asks whether treat
ment by medicine and diet would not
give relief and perhaps tide him
over so as to avoid operation.
The physician may, perhaps, be
willing to try nonsurgical treatment
for a while as he remembers that
most gall bladder operations give
satisfactory results, but there arc
some which do not. He, therefore,
lays out a diet which involves eat
ing small meals four or five times a
day, and cutting down on certain
foods which irritate liver and gall
What happens in these cases?
In some cases the small meals,
the cutting down on fat foods, the
daily walk, and perhaps some medi
cal treatment, such as bile salts,
give considerable relief. In others,
despite faithful following of the phy
sician’s instructions and in a great
many because they do not faithfully
follow instructions, the symptoms
are not relieved. Some of these pa
tients keep consulting their physi
cians until he finally has to tell
them that operation is necessary to
give relief.
Unfortunately, by this time the
condition of the patient is such that
operation may not give very satis
factory results and the physician
(and sometimes the patient) blames
himself for delaying operation.
Dr. Walter Alvarez, Mayo clinic,
a few years ago pointed out that
after suffering for years with a pep
tic ulcer, the patient when he un
dergoes operation expects the oper
ation not only to give him an ab
solutely new stomach but to clear
up anything and everything else that
ails him.
Similarly with the gall bladder
patient. By the time the operation
is performed neither he nor the gall
bladder and other organs are in as
good condition as they were some
months or years previously.
