HONORARY MILITARY FRATERNITY
BersMn Rifles Program Stresses
arksmaltship, Crack Brill Team
By DARWIN McAFEE
Tcrshlng Rifles, Company A-2,
Is hard at work under the leader
ship of company commander, Ray
Shipp and executive officer, Jack
Keene, preparing for the high
light of the year which will be
the annual drill meet to be held
at Nebraska next spring.
Founded at Nebraska in 1892
by General John J. Fershinc, P.
R. has become one of the largest
honorary military fraternities in
the United States. Over 100 chap
ters throughout the country are
grouped Into 1 1 regiments accord
ing to geographical location.
The National Headquarters,
located at Nebraska, la charted
with the job of administering
to the regiments which in turn
administer to the companies.
On the company level, stress is
placed on work with individuals
rather than riding herd on the
stacks of paperwork which the
administrative work demands.
Founded for the purpose of set
ting up a group of cadets to serve
as "examples for the rest of the
Cadet Corps and to provide a
crack drill team on the campus,"
P. R. is basically an organization
for first and second year ROTC
students. Officers are juniors and
seniors elected by the active body
and are maintained principally for
leadership and guidance.
Freshman and sophomores
wishing to join must first serve
a period of pledgeship and, if
qualified, may then receive the
coveted blue cord, which dis
tinguishes all Pershing Rifle
men. Pledges are accepted con
tinually throughout the year.
' At the ,5:00 P.M. Monday and
Wednesday meetings the pledges
are taught drill movements and
the manual of arms by sophomore
actives who act as non-commis
sioned officers. Eventually the
men are moulded together as a
unit and practice precision ma
neuvers. The final test on pre
cision is the drill meet when they
compete with the other companies
in the regiment Companies in
the Second Regiment are located
in the states of North and South
Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Wiscon
sin, and Nebraska.
Men Interested in crack or
'fancy" drill may try out for
the Crack Squad which each
year gives a command perform
ance at the Military Ball.
Another honor which Persh
!n Riflemen hold is that of serv
ing as honor guard for the colors
which are presented at each
home football game, at all
ROTC parades and at various
other times during the year.
But all work and no play causes
PR Pete to lose interest At
intervals throughout the year din
ner dances and stags are held to

Also looked forward to is the
spring field problem. Last year,
at the National Guard camp near
Ashland, all hands present ex
perienced a battle royal with
blank ammunition popping all

Then, too, the rifle team is not
to be forgotten. The Sharpshooters

A responsible consulting organization has
reported the results of a continuing study by a
competent medical specialist and his staff on the
effects of smoking Chesterfield cigarettes.
A group of people from various walks of life
was organized to smoke only Chesterfields. For six
months this group of men and women smoked their
normal amount of Chesterfields -10 to 40 a day.
45 of the group have smoked Chesterfields con
tinually from one to thirty years for an average of
10 years each.
At the beginning and at the end of the six
months period each smoker was given a thorough
examination, including X-ray pictures, by the
medical specialist and his assistants. The exam
ination covered the sinuses as well as the nose,
ears and throat
ine medical specialist, after a thorough
ination of every member of the group, stated:
