WHAT THEY ARE DOING NOW
JOHN M. GILLESPIE
TO CHAPTER OFFICERS
Let's make a New Year's Resolution. When your chapter does something, tell us about it promptly. Reporting is generally pretty bad -- the chapters are very slow in sending in information for use in the CUB. For example, this is supposed to be the December-January issue. We told the chapters that we'd hold it up long enough so that they could report their December 16 reunions, with photos, for CUB use. But only our Metropolitan Chapter reported its affair to the CUB in time for detailed reporting in this issue, even though we delayed the issue two weeks beyond the usual time.
Chapter Presidents should keep in close touch with the CUB and with national headquarters. It's a fundamental part of their job.
I'd like to be able to count on getting a letter from each chapter at least once every two months. We can profit from interchange of ideas and discussion of problems, and your chapter will profit from detailed reporting of activities in the CUB.
MISSING PERSONSThe Association wants addresses on all of the following. Help us out, if you can!
DICK LEARY, DHQ, or others who might give information about the death of James S. Hamilton at Stalag IX-C on 5 April 1945.

IN MEMORIAMJohn C. Hebenstreit: In a tragic mine accident, John C. Hebenstreit. Battery C, 589th Field Artillery Battalion, lost his life on October 25, 1949, near Shullsburg, Wisc. John, who honey-mooned with his wife Mary at our 1948 convention, was 25 years old, a graduate engineer, and an employee of the Calumet and Hecla Company. With the 106th from activation, he was captured on December 16. 1944 and was liberated on Good Friday, March 30, 1945. We mourn the untimely loss of a greatly respected comrade.
Since 1947, about 1,800 different persons have belonged to the Association at one time or another. And, in the same period, we've had over 2,000 address changes for members. Boy, do they move around! It's okay when we are notified promptly, but if you move, you'll miss an issue or two of the CUB unless you let us know about it.
The CUB, official publication of The 106th Infantry Division Association, Inc., is published bi-monthly from editorial offices at 237 So. Manning Blvd., Albany 3. N. Y. Subscription rate $3 per year, including membership in the Association. The Editors invite all readers to submit manuscript, and photograph, for consideration for publication. All material is copyrighted, and may not be reproduced without permission from the Editors.
GETTING YOUR MONEY'S WORTH?
By DAVID S. PRICE, Editor"I'm not going to renew my membership because I don't think I've been getting my money's worth out of the Association." I got a letter the other day that began with those words. And here is my reply.
The fellow is perfectly right, if by "getting his money's worth" he means that he expects us to give him material things worth three dollars a year. The CUB only costs a few cents more than two dollars a year per member. When we have reunions and parties, we charge for them -- they are not paid for out of the national dues. We also charge for such things as lapel pins, division histories, etc. If he expects to get three hundred cents, worth of personal merchandise, publications, or entertainment out of his annual dues, he's got us all wrong. We're not selling memberships on that basis. But here are some of the things his three dollars goes to pay for -- and it's pretty hard to see how they help him directly.
1. Information for Nests-of-Kin:
The Association has obtained eye-witness accounts of the capture, last days, or death of more than 100 of our battle casualties. The letters we have received from parents and wives of our killed-in-action are a touching testimonial to the value of this service. As examples, a mother writes that it gave her consolation and joy to know that her son received the Sacraments shortly before he died. A wife writes that her infant son will always cherish the account we published of his father's heroic death. These things have no dollars-and-cents value to our individual members, but we leave it to you to judge their other worth.
2. Help to Members:
In 1949, we helped three of our members to get jobs. We interceded with the United States Civil Service Commission to get reinstatement and another chance for one of our fellows who had gotten in trouble and been fired. We helped 17 men establish disability claims by putting them in touch with witnesses. We went to bat for one veteran in a legal problem. These things too have no cash value to most of our members, but whose turn will it be next?'
Some of us came back. Many weren't so lucky. I think we owe a debt to those who took the sacrifice for us. Part of this debt we can discharge by telling how and why they died, and particularly by hammering away to erase the blot on their memories created by one sensational radio commentator who went off half-cocked. We haven't been able to do too much along these lines, but an impartial analysis of the facts show that the 106th has received more nationwide post-war publicity than any other Division which was in the E.T.O. As examples, three stories in the Saturday Evening Post, a fine division history by Col. Dupuy, an article about one of our men in the Ladies Home Journal, the annual newspaper publicity given to many of our December 16 reunions, the frequent mention of the 106th by Cedric Foster.
4. The Memorial Fund:
Our fund for scholarship grants to the children of our battle casualties is growing steadily. This is another way we can partially pay back our comrades who answered the last roll call in the Bulge.
The purpose of our organization can be sensed from the four counts listed above. The CUB is a means of holding the organization together to work toward its basic purposes. If you expect, as an individual, to get three dollars cash value out of each year's membership in the Association, you have completely missed the point of the Association's charitable, fraternal and educational purposes.
With this issue, we resume the publication of names of donors to our Memorial Fund. As of January,. 1, 1950, the balance in the fund stands at $1,118.65. Your contribution, however small, will help!

METROPOLITAN CHAPTER REUNIONOur Metropolitan Chapter's fourth annual December memorial dinner-dance was a great success, with 112 persons attending. The affair was held on Saturday, the 17th, at the Fifth Avenue Brass Rail, 5th Avenue and 43rd Street, New York City. Among those attending were many veterans of the 106th from New Jersey and Long Island.
Official records of the First Army praising the 106th were quoted by the guest speaker, Captain William N. Martasin, formerly of the 4th Armored Division and now with the Adjutant General's Office of First Army Headquarters. He gave a resume of the part our Division played in the Bulge, stated that we denied the use of St. Vith to Field Marshal Von Rundstedt's forces for a period lone enough to completely upset the German attack time-table. Capt. Martasin spoke highly of divisional veterans' associations, and said that it was a great thing to be a part of such an outfit.
Chaplain Milo Guild of the N. Y. Port of Embarkation conducted services for the departed members of our Division who were left behind in the Ardennes and in whose honor and memory the reunion was held. After his few words, taps were sounded for those brave comrades while all who were present stood with bowed heads.
Truman, Eisenhower Send GreetingsGreetings from President Truman and General Eisenhower were read by the chapter president, Jerome L. Frankel. Both expressed regret at inability to attend because of previous commitment,.
MICHIGAN REUNIONThe Michigan Wolverine Chapter held its second December 16th memorial reunion, and we hear that more than 70 persons attended as the boys started work on the chapter's job as hosts to the 1950 convention. Details of the affair haven't been reported to the CUB yet, but we'll print them next month.
ALBANY REUNIONOur tiny, but persistent Albany Chapter held its third December reunion, with 13 present -of the 13, nine traveled more than 50 miles to attend. The affair, an open house at the home of a chapter member, was still in full swing long past midnight. Your Editor attended, and it sure was an interesting bull session. The hat was passed for the Memorial Fund, with $14.88 collected.
Favors presented at the door included key chains for all men and lipsticks for all ladies who attended. Door prizes were awarded. Our thanks to those who generously donated the prizes and favors! The chapter charter was displayed prominently, with all issues of the CUB, the division history, and other related material.
New York Wants 1951 ConventionA number of new members joined the Association, and a grand time was had by all. The chapter membership went on record as favoring the holding of the 1951 national convention in or near New York City. It was decided to hold a membership meeting, probably in March, with members to he notified when the details are arranged. The chapter will hold its third annual beer party in June. The chapter president extended sincere thanks to the committee workers for a great job in managing and arranging the December reunion.
RUSS KELLY AND DR. JOHN KETTERER of the Central Illinois Chapter, both national directors of the Association are shown pulling K.P. at the chapter's October supper.
A STATEMENT OF POLICYIn reply to a recent inquiry from a CUB subscriber, National President John M. Gillespie issued the following statement :
"The 106th Infantry Division Association was formed as a charitable and fraternal membership corporation. It is non-partisan and non-political. The Association has no connection with nor knowledge of an organization called "Citizens for Defense of America, Inc."
"The official attitude of the Association toward any civic or other group is that our members may or may not join, according, to their individual wishes and beliefs. We, as an organization, neither encourage nor discourage our members from joining other groups."
CENTRAL ILLINOIS ushered in the fall season with a chili supper at Springfield, Ill. on October 22, 1949. Among those present (not in order in the photo) were .Mr. and Mrs. J. Edward, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Fryhoff, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Fulk and sons, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Glats and son, Dr. and Mrs. John Ketterer, Russell Kelly and Miss Mary Makris, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Maurer, Mr. and Mrs. R. R. Seefeldt, Charles Pritchett, Mrs. Nora Stuches, and Mr. and Mrs. Enos Wahl.
FOR SUSTAINING MEMBERSSincerest thanks go from the management of the Association to the many members who have sent in ten dollar Sustaining Memberships this year. In 1948-49, when the Association's margin' of profit for the year was only $114, these sustaining memberships made up the difference between red and black ink on our year-end statement. It looks now as though 1949-50 will be another narrow-margin year, and again, we'll have our sustaining members to thank for the difference between operating at a small loss or small profit.
Sustaining membership carries no extra rights or privileges, but is simply a means whereby those who want to help a little more can give a bit extra to help keep the CUB, the Association and the Memorial Fund active and strong.
Thanks again, fellows. And next year, we hope there'll be more sustaining members.

Benefits held in Chicago and in Albany have raised $60 for our Auxiliary Fund to buy a wheel chair for a paraplegic veteran. But we want to present this chair at the 1950 summer convention in Detroit. The year is more than half over, and we're only half way to our goal of $120. Every Auxiliary member is urged to do one of the following things to help us meet our goal: (1) sponsor a card party or other benefit ; (2) solicit some contributions; or (3) donate some money.
Contributions should be sent to our Treasurer, Mrs. David Price, 237 So. Manning Blvd., Albany 3, N. Y. Also send her an account of your project to raise the money so that we can report it in the CUB and share our ideas.
Mrs. Bertha Stiles, our national president, reports that two new Auxiliary units are organizing. Let's have more! For help and ideas, write to Mrs. Stiles at 1020 West 68th St., Chicago 21, Ill. Mrs. Stiles plans to visit our Detroit members soon to make arrangements and plans for the 1950 convention, including entertainment for the ladies and selection of a veteran to receive the wheel chair.
