Editor's Message

     One brief year ago, I included in the Cub what was to be then my final message as your Cub editor, so this year I shall again proceed to conclude my duties with this final report.

 

     Including this copy of the Cub we have issued five editions at the approximate cost of $625.00 compared to $650.00 for 195758 year. This however, is only the cost of Cub and does not include envelopes, postage and mailing service.

     The issue after our Phila. convention was sent to the 1200 names on our mailing roster which includes all former members.

     To all who so faithfully supplied material for the CUB I extend my thanks for it is you, the members, who are responsible for the type CUB we print. Will you support to an even greater extent our next editor?

     President Clayt has listed in his notes the items that were to have been started or concluded thru this past year, will you take note so we can discuss at our convention.

     I suggest this year in Chicago we take time in our business meeting to fully discuss our present position and our future plans. Let us not let pleasure take precedence over the number one reason for having a convention, to perpetuate our Division Association. We can never get more out of anything than we are willing to put into it.

     The Chicago Convention group is waiting eagerly for the invasion of the 106th. Will you be there to partake of all they have to offer? Plan to spend the week at the Edgewater.

     It has been my sincere hope that thru the messages in the CUB we have in some small way been able to bring to you the realization of man's responsibility to his fellow man.

     Thanking you for the opportunity of having been able to serve you.

Yours for a better 106th Division Assoc.

JOHN

 

CORRECTIONS

SUSTAINING MEMBERSHIP

     Anyone desiring may, by paying $10.00 instead of $5.00, be classified as a sustaining member. This was started last year by a few of our members.

Presidents Message

     As this will be my last message to you as your President, I'd like to thank everybody for their cooperation in making this a successful year. The following is a partial list of some business (some new, some unfinished) that will have to be decided on in Chicago. I feel that if you members give some thought on these items before the reunion it will help to speed our meetings a little bit, and also will help you from making hasty decisions. Please read carefully and keep in mind anything you have to add for the floor the day of the meeting.

     1. The Cub issue published immediately after each convention be sent to both active and expired members.

     2. The association to spend up to $5000.00 for the erection of a monument at the College of St. Vith, Belgium.

     3. Bob Rutt, John Loveless and Bob Kelly constitute a committee to revise the constitution and by-laws and to submit same at the 1959 convention.

     4. Jim Wells to be authorized to proceed with plans for holding the 1960 convention at Savannah, Georgia.

     5. Adjutant was to send to Major Mowlds a copy of our mailing list, which he was to have mimeographed and divided in geographic areas to be distributed to active members who were to contact former members in their areas.

     6. John Loveless was authorized to incorporate the Association in the State of Maryland, and that the present District of Columbia Corporation be either dissolved or merged with the Maryland Corporation.

     7. Each member to endeavor to get one new member during the year.

     8. Site of 1961 Convention.

     9. Election of board of directors and officers for year 1959-1960.

This Is Chicago

     Chicago, the country boy's dream, the sophisticate's playground, the student's paradise . . . and the greatest family vacation resort in the nation!

     Besides the usual points of interest that are a "must" on any sightseer's program, there are many activities that may be participated in by visitors. Swimming, boating, golf, tennis, yachting are some of the sports offered by the Chicago Park District to the public Parks.

     The museums, art galleries, historical and scientific displays are second to none in the nation and offer a vast education on many subjects.

     Standing at Michigan and Chicago avenues are the historic Water Tower and Pumping Station, the only downtown structures not destroyed by the great fire of 1871. Compare this architecture with the modern glass and steel buildings of today, of which the Prudential Plaza is one of the newest and largest.

     While Chicago is the second largest city in the United States and the fifth in the world, it is first in many things: We have the largest grain and country produce market in the country . . . the largest airport, the 10 square mile O'Hare Field and the busiest, Midway with 900 flights daily ., . we are the center of the nation's steel industry . . . Chicago is served by 20 trunk line railroads which operate nearly one-half of the nation's total mileage . . . the Conrad Hilton is the world's largest hotel (3000 rooms) and the Merchandise Mart (24 stories high, occupying two city blocks) is the largest solely devoted to commerce.

     There are 75 separate and distinct shopping districts within the city limits of which the best known are State Street and Michigan Avenue . . . some 11,250 wholesalers do a 22 billion dollar business annually . . . there are 14,500 factories in the Chicago area that produce about 21 billion dollars' worth of goods and employ more than one million workers . . . the Union Stock Yards handle about five million animals each year.

     There are nearly 2400 churches, synagogues, temples and cathedrals representing almost every faith, creed and race . . . although there isn't an oil well in the Chicago area, about one-half million barrels of crude oil arrive by pipe line daily to serve Chicago refineries . . . LaSalle Street, from Washington Street south to Jackson Boulevard, is the financial district and here are located the Midwest Stock Exchange, the Board of Trade and six of the station's largest banks including the District Federal Reserve Bank . . . Chicago's famous Outer Drive, the longest scenic boulevard on a water front, follows the contour of Lake Michigan from 5700 north to 7100 south. THIS, briefly, is CHICAGO . . . places to go . . . things to see . . . it's all waiting for you and so are we . . . but a bit more impatiently . . . Won't you come to see us this year????

Reunions

     It was sixteen years ago that our Division was formed in South Carolina. Inevitably, when thinking back to those days and the two years to follow, one recalls a series of events, each tied to the personality of individual or group. The pleasure of recalling those days follows a pattern of remembering the fine people we gathered together, many of whom we lost but replaced with others of equal ability.

     Last winter I had the good fortune to see Bill Baker in Hawaii, Charles Cavender in California, Leo McMahon, Milton Glatterer and Malin Craig in Washington. Then, to those of us who are able to attend our reunions, there comes the annual meeting with many more friends. In addition to the old timers, there are always new laces to furnish the anticipation of the arrival of some one thought of, but long unseen.

     I like our conventions. I like the people who come to them. I like to see the entire family and to see them growing up before our eyes. I like our informal approach of recent years and the fact that we are not being "used" for private purposes. I like the lack of pompous speeches aimed to set the world right. I like us.

     Thanks to the devoted, loyal people who organize and operate our conventions we may expect, and we get the best.

And all we have to do is to get ourselves there!

Chaplain's Message

     The sesqui-centennial this year of the birth of Abraham Lincoln has aroused a new interest in the life and accomplishment of that great American. The location in the State of Illinois of the site for our 1959 Convention has heightened that interest for the "GOLDEN LIONS."

     Regardless of our politics, here was a man whom all men could admire; a man among men; a man of giant intellect, yet able to understand the simple truths of life; a man of great physical strength, yet capable of the tenderness of a child; a man demanding justice and equality for all, yet tempering it with mercy; a man proclaiming aloud like one in the wilderness that position and power must be exercised with restraint and responsibility; a man crying from the depths of his soul that only right makes might.

     But, above all, here was a man with an all-abiding faith in the Almighty as a God of justice, Mercy and Love, by and through Whom man might achieve his destiny.

     Might we emulate the attributes of that one of whom it was said, "Now he belongs to the ages."

"Let thy steadfast love, 0 Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in Thee."—Psalm 33:22 JOHN T. LOVELESS, JR,

Chaplain,

106th Inf. Div. Assn.

 

WITH SORROW

     Our Division Assoc. offers its deep sympathy to Douglass Coffey, whose Mother recently passed into life eternal.

     To Major Mowlds, whose brother recently passed away, we offer our heartfelt sorrow.

     ALYS JONES of the Auxiliary, wife of Major General Alan Jones of Washington, D.C. was in "Tacoma, Washington the last week in April, attending the funeral of her sister. The Auxiliary and the Association extend deepest sympathy.

 

ADJUTANT'S REPORT

Paid members 258

Complimentary 12

Total 270.

 

     While this has not been a good year as regards membership, we are saving on the mailing and should stay in the black. It may be poor economy not spending money to get new members, but I think these men have had enough reminders by now. The memberships for the next year are coming in well.

Dick DeHeer

 

LADIES AUXILIARY

Letters to Editor

Dear Mr. Gallagher:

     Thank you very much for the book and the patch.

     I enjoy reading it very much. I have put it on my board. I now have 150 patches.

     I do hope you have a good reunion.

Thank you again.

J. PATTON BUCHANAN

 

Dear John:

     Lucille and I are looking forward to seeing you and the rest of the gang in Chicago this summer.

     Father Paul Cavanaugh was in Detroit last week. The Bob Kelly's and the Bob Rutt's had the pleasure of having dinner with the good Father. Father Cavanaugh is presently traveling throughout the Midwest giving missions at various churches. He enjoys this work very much, as it affords him a good opportunity to meet a number of his old friends from our outfit. He definitely would like to make the convention to Chicago this summer, but unfortunately, arrangements had been made for him to conduct a couple of missions during the same period. He is doing his best, however, to see if arrangements can be made so that he can be with us.

     I know he would like to hear from some of his old friends. His present address is: Paul Cavanaugh, S.J., Jesuit Mission Band, 509 North Oak Park Ave., Oak Park, Ill.

     My wife and I also spent another pleasant evening last March. Lt. Col. Henry McKee came up to Detroit to attend an uncle's funeral. Just by coincidence, Mike Alexander brought his family over from Chicago to see "My Fair Lady" at the same time. McKee was the Regimental Intelligence Officer for the 422nd Infantry and Alexander was the Intelligence Officer for the 1st Battalion of such regiment until he left us to join the paratroopers. We spent the evening sipping lemonade and talking about the good old days.

     McKee has rather a unique position in the Army. He is an Infantry Officer, but he wears a pair of silver wings. In addition to conventional aircraft, he is also a licensed helicopter pilot, and he and his family are presently stationed at Fort Ruckner, Alabama.

     Mike Alexander is in the meat business and is President of the South Chicago Packing Company, 9229 South Baltimore Ave., Chicago 17, Ill. Mike expects to attend our convention in Chicago this summer.

     Some of the former members of the 422nd may remember Lt. Russell Martin, who used to be the S-2 of the 2nd Battalion until he left us at Camp Atterbury. He lived in Birmingham, Michigan, and unfortunately he died of a heart attack several months ago.

     Lucille and I certainly hope that everybody shows up in Chicago. We are both looking forward to a very good time.

Very truly yours,

ROBERT E. RUTT

 

Re: The Lion's Tale

Dear John:

     Nine copies of the Lion's Tale went in the mail Friday, May 29.

     I enjoyed your last issue of THE CUB. It was full of news and very well done.

     The boys in Chicago are really working up a good meeting and I know that all those who can attend will really enjoy themselves.

     Our best wishes to you and a sincere hope that I have a chance to see you this summer.

Yours very truly,

PETE FRAMPTON

     Mrs. Dulebohn plans to attend the convention in Chicago. She would also be interested in hearing from any Gold Star Mothers. She says the Gold Star Mothers, thru the Hon. John J. Rooney of New York, have submitted a Bill to establish a pilgrimage to the graves of Sons killed in action.
