EDWARD L. LUZZIE

 

     The Association welcomes Arvo Paananen who in this issue of the CUB makes his debut as its editor. In wishing him good luck and good fortune in this undertaking, we look forward to another successful year for the CUB. David S. Price, the retiring editor, has worked tirelessly and practically single-handedly in making this the fine magazine that it is.

     His excellent work as editor of the CUB has been greatly appreciated by all of us whose major contribution to the success of the CUB consisted of reading it avidly for news of the 106th and of the men we knew in the Division. We have been, indeed fortunate to have had a man of Dave's ability and intelligence to handle such a job. While we regret that it was necessary for him to relinquish the editorship, we are nevertheless happy to have him working actively with us as Treasurer of the Association.

     The Pittsburgh group undoubtedly will soon begin its drive for next year's convention. Therefore, it behooves all of us to begin now to plan for that trip to Pittsburgh. One of the most effective ways to support the Association is by attending the Conventions. For most of the members of the Association that is probably the only time that they can meet with a good size group of former 106th Division men.

 

NOTE:

SV. CO. 424TH INF. REGT.

     Anyone desiring an address of members of the 424/SV.CO., write Herbert Eidelman, 18261 Prairie, Detroit, Michigan. Those Sv. Co. members who have moved, please notify Herbert of change of address

 

YOUR CUB PRINTER

     Commencing with this issue, your CUB is printed by Mutual Business Service, 707 North Ave. Waukegan. Illinois. The grade of paper is the same as used in recent issues but the magazine is reduced a little in size to minimize wasted space. This will not reduce the contents of the CUB. Mr. Walter J. Ruge, Owner and Manager of Mutual Business Service, and a personal friend of the new editor, said he'll do anything out of his way to produce the 106th Infantry Division Association an excellent publication at reasonable expense.

 

     The CUB is published bimonthly by the 106th Infantry Division Association. Subscription price $3.00 per year includes membership in the Association. Editorial offices at 236 N. Genesee, St., Waukegan, Illinois. Back copies available at 25‘ each.

Killed In Action

 

     Our Purpose: To perpetuate the name and symbol of the 106th Infantry Division as an active and living monument to those brothers in arms who have died while fighting under its standards and whose every act has reflected great glory and prestige on its now remaining veterans.

     Glenn Schnizlein, our Memorials Chairman, has performed a great job by revising and expanding our battle casualty list since its first publication in the August-September 1949 CUB. He was able to do this only through the cooperation of several members.

     Let's check these additional lists carefully, and write us with information about KIA not listed, with corrections in spelling, and with information about circumstances of death. unit and serial number, and address of next of kin for the men listed under "NOK not known.”

Chaplain’s Corner

REV. EDWARD T. BOYLE

     November is ushered in with Halloween - All Hallows Eve - in which traditionally was remembered the Souls or Spirits of those who had passed away. To the Men of the 106th, it recalls the Spirits of Our Buddies. Buddies who gave their all. See them again: steel helmeted, dirty, unshaven, in G. I. jackets, grenades hanging from the lapels, belt of clips around their shoulders. You slept with him in the foxhole, talked over many things with him; things about which you never have opened up to anyone else. Yes, they're gone, but, their Spirit goes on. How can we ever forget them? We hope that they are at peace. In your own way, pray God that they are. During November when traditionally we are reminded to pray for our dead, don't forget them - Pray that we may meet again in the Glory of God.

 

If you haven' t paid your 1950-51 dues, send $3.00 now to ROBERT E. KELLY, Adjutant, 1387 Marlborough, Detroit, Michigan.

 

PITTSBURGH IN 1951

     The fifth annual convention will be in Pittsburgh, Pa., in the summer of 1951 - dates will be set probably in time to be announced at the December 16th reunions. At time of this printing, the editorial office didn’t have a list of Pittsburg men who are making the convention arrangements, so how about a word from you. Pittsburgh?

 

CHICAGO CHAPTER AUXILIARY

     The Chicago Chapter Auxiliary of which Mrs. Herb Meagher is President, held another Card Party on September 29th at St. Bernard's Parish Hall. The Auxiliary thanks all those who participated and made this party such a success. Bob de St. Aubin and his bride since October 14th attended the party also. Bob introduced his better half to the Auxiliary.

 

AUXILIARY PRESIDENT'S REPORT

1949 - 1950

     The most important accomplishment of the year has been fulfilled. This was the purchase of the chair for a paraplegic veteran and which was presented at the 4th National Convention in Detroit. To those who helped me to accomplish this, I am very grateful. You should feel you have done a most worthy duty.

     What a perfect place this world would be if we practiced peace, comfort, and kindness to one another every day of our lives! May we continue to be friends to each other in the years to come, and may I always continue to help in every way possible to promote the 106th Division Auxiliary as an outstanding patriotic organization worthy of the fine name and service that we render to those who served our country in its time of need, and who may now need help for themselves or their families.
