Vol. 8, No. 1, Sep, 1951
J. Glenn Schnizlein
To me now falls the task of writing this column each issue. However, the chance to talk to each of you every other month turns this chore into a pleasure.
As I begin my duties as president, I am very optimistic for the success of the coming year and our sixth annual convention. We have some 'new blood' in our board of directors which will produce new energy and activity in this vital organ of our association. Already the initial plans for the Baltimore Convention have been formulated. The place and dates for the 1952 Convention of the 106th have been selected and arranged for by Convention Baltimore Convention Chairman, John T. Loveless, Jr. who also is president of the Maryland Chapter. The place - The Lord Baltimore Hotel, Baltimore & Hanover Streets, Baltimore 1, Maryland, the dates - Thursday, July 24 through Sunday, July 27, 1952.
Make your initial plans to attend now and include in these plans a letter or two to some buddy. We know we have a good organization - Let's let the rest of the fellows know too. This coming convention brings us closer to a greater number of potential members than ever before. The greatest drawing card for these potential members is the knowledge that their 106th buddies will be there. This makes the job for each and every one of us clear - Send them a PERSONAL invitation. At the same time, explain to them that they can become members of our association immediately and regain contacts with other friends through the CUB.
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 25c each.

Annual Financial Report
Fiscal Year Ending 30 June 1951
During the 12 months ending 30 June 1951, the Association's income exceeded its expenses by about $230, due largely to a successful convention at Detroit. 'Surplus.-- our cushion against the future -- amounted to about $1,380 at the end of the year and, in addition, we have $1,677.02 in the Memorial Fund and $51.00 set aside in the History Fund to buy histories for the nexts-of-kin.
The following highlights of our fiscal year are worth special mention; (1) MEMBERSHIP dropped to about 675, down from 860 in 1949-50; (2) MEMORIAL FUND contributions were $522, more than twice as much as in the three previous years combined; (3) CUB expenses accounted for 85% of all operating expenses, compared with 61% in 1949-50 -- this was in compliance with sentiment expressed at the 1950 convention, and was made possible by cutting other expenses from about $1,000 in 1949-50 to about $375 in 1950-51.

1951 Convention Highlights
The 106th 'Golden Lion' Infantry Division Association, hero of the Battle of the Bulge, wound up its three-day national convention in Pittsburgh on July 29th! Everything was tops in Pittsburgh, Attendance was greater than expected and the beautifully managed reunion by the Pittsburgh hosts made it financially successful!
On Friday night, July 27, almost half of the delegates had checked in. The Pittsburgh Chapter held a fine informal party in the Sheraton Hotel which lasted far into the night.
Saturday morning at ten o'clock, the delegates met at the Soldier's and Sailor's Memorial Hall for the Memorial Service in memory of our lost comrades. The exceptionally beautiful auditorium was very appropriate for the wonderful service. The Association's Chaplain, Father Boyle, began with the Convocation; followed by the soloist, Miss Lucile Bach of Pittsburgh. The Speaker, Dr. James M. Barnett, also from Pittsburgh, gave a very inspiring address. The second Army Color Guard formed a colorful and memorial background during the entire service.
Saturday noon we all met again at the Hotel William Penn where we enjoyed another fine dinner followed by a very stirring address by Matt Cvetic, former FBI undercover agent who told us that the fight against Communists must be 'unlimited'.
At 2 p.m. Saturday, the business sessions took place. The details will be in the Annual Minutes, a separate article in your CUB.
At 7 p.m. Saturday, we all met for another lovely and efficiently served dinner in the hotel dining room which was followed by dancing to the dreamy music of an exceptional 14-pc band. All the women were dolls in full dress, The Pittsburgh Modeling Club deserves our thanks for furnishing those lovely ladies as dancing partners to the men who weren't fortunate enough to have their wives and sweethearts accompany them to the convention. The big party broke up about midnight when small parties got under way.
Everyone arose early Sunday morning and made church services of their choice. Some took in sight-seeing in Pittsburgh and Mt. Washington and again everyone met for the noon luncheon at the William Penn where the announcements of new officers and new convention site for 1952 were presented.
The new officers for 1951-52 nominated, elected and installed were as follows: President, J. Glenn Schnizlein of Philadelphia;
Vice President, James E. Wells, of Hephzibah, Georgia;
Adjutant, Robert E. Kelly of Detroit;
Treasurer, William K. Fowler of Washington D. C.;
Chaplain, Rev. Edward T. Boyle of Chicago;
Memorials Chairman, D. B. Frampton, Jr., of Columbus, Ohio;
and Editor. Arvo O. Paananen. of Waukegan, Ill.
It was resolved that the 1952 Convention Site for the 106th Infantry Division Association shall be Baltimore, Maryland.
Headquarters for the 106th Infantry Division Association remains at the office of Robert E. Kelly, 2034 National Bank Bldg., Detroit 26, Mich.

A very successful Pre-Convention get-together of the Chicago Chapter was held at Round Lake, 45 miles northwest of Chicago, on Sunday, July 15th. The Chapter is thankful to Bob de St Aubin's father-in-law for his generosity in allowing the gang to take full charge of the premises and grounds on his Round Lake summer home. Everyone brought their own lunches and beverages were furnished. The jolly bunch enjoyed a great day of swimming and relaxation.
Your CUB Editor also spent this beautiful day at the picnic and snapped these few pictures to acquaint the rest of the Association members with some of the wonderful folks in the Chicago Chapter.

PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Chapter did a magnificent job with the 5th National Convention of the Golden Lion Division. Its management by the Convention Committee was superb! Our whole-hearted thanks go to the committee which consisted of Doc Cessna, Paul Muehlman, John Hopbell, Chuck Freed, Lee Marsh, Bob Morrison, Dave Trimbath, and Walt Bandurak.
The group photo taken after the memorial service and found in this issue can be obtained from the Photographer, WARREN STUDIO, 2719 Library Rd. Pittsburgh 34, Pa., by sending your remittance of $1.00 with your order. You will receive an 8 x 10 glossy print.
WHEN YOU MOVE TEMPORARILY OR PERMANENTLY, PLEASE NOTIFY THE ADJUTANT ABOUT YOUR CHANGE OF ADDRESS. Check of our addressograph changes last year shows that we lost contact with 44 members who moved leaving no address, and that 241 members changed address during the year - many of them more than once.
OUR ADJUTANT GUEST
OF 24TH DIVISION
The 24th Infantry Division Association held its annual convention in Detroit on August 10th, 11th and 12th. Our Adjutant, Bob Kelly, attended the afternoon meetings as he had been invited by the editor of their paper. They had experienced the same membership difficulties that we have experienced during the past year. Their membership was down to a little over 600, although the Division has been in operation ever since the World War II ended in the Pacific. They have been in occupation duty in Japan until they went into Korea in June 1950. The interest in the Korea campaign has brought their membership back up to 930 as of their convention time.
They had a bulletin board set up with copies of the various infantry divisions association publications displayed. In Bob's opinion, the four best publications were those of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 106th Infantry Divisions. Those were all in the same form as the CUB. Three or four other Divisions publications were displayed. They were in the form of a newspaper or bulletin, The CUB did not have to take a back seat for any of them.
The 24th Division Convention did not have any formal activities such as our Saturday evening dinner dance, however, all those in attendance seemed to enjoy meeting old friends. They had approximately 135 men and about 50 women in attendance.
Bob would like to point out to our membership that our strong Chapters, along with the quality of the CUB, are responsible for our continued high membership. The 24th Division Association has no Chapter organization. Their only social activity throughout the entire year is the Annual Reunion.
The message Bob wants to get over to the membership is that we have a sound organization from which all the members can derive great deal of pleasure.
Minutes of Annual Meeting
The meeting was called to order by President Ed. Luzzie at 2:45 P.M.
1. Mr. Luzzie acknowledged his appreciation on behalf of the assembled members to the Pittsburgh Chapter Convention Committee.

Letters from 'CUB' Readers
MARK R. MOORE (Chaplain, 106th Div. Arty.), writes to inform us that it was a joy to hear and renew his contact with men of the 106th Infantry Division Association. He also expressed his appreciation for receiving the CUB for the first time and has already sent his subscription fee to the Adjutant.
Born September 30, 1916 in Vilonia, Arkansas, and educated in Public Schools in Texas and Kansas, he graduated from Topeka High School in '33. Then attending Bethany-Peniel College - receiving A.B. degree in '37 and ThB. After receiving his Army discharge, he continued school and graduated from Baylor University in Waco, Texas with an M.A. degree in '46.
Reverend Moore has Pastored in Harlingen, Denton, and Waco, Texas during the years 1938-1944. He served as Professor at the Bethany-Peniel College from 1946-48 and taught Biblical Literature. At the present time, Rev. Moore is District Superintendent of the Northwest Oklahoma District Church of the Nazarene.
He married Miss Clarice E. Pyles of Pavo, Georgia, and has been blessed with two sons, Mark Kent, 8, and Brad Reynolds, 4. This lovely family resides et 305 S. 8th St. Ponca City, Oklahoma.
Reverend Moore says, 'to me the men of the 106th made a tremendous contribution to the cause of freedom during the Battle of the Bulge and in their defeat and imprisonment they endured hardness as a good soldier. Actually, in surrender they were victorious. Few awards will be given prisoners of war but American patriotism has never shown brighter than in the darkness of the prison camps'.
Editor's Note: Chaplain Moore has written an excellent publication, PRISONER OF THE GERMANS, in book form relating his Army and Nazi Prison Camp experiences during the Battle of the Bulge. Although I have been granted permission to print excerpts from this book, I find myself unable to publish these good articles in the CUB due to their length. But, if you have the chance, I would suggest every Lion Division Man to read it.

As The Editor Sees It
Arvo O. Paananen
Well, the excitement of conventions and vacations is over for most of us.
On Friday. July 27th, my sister, brother-in-law, his sister Sylvia, and I got an early start from Waukegan to Pittsburgh and our New England vacation.
My Roadmaster getting its initiation in the mountains in Ohio and Pennsylvania, we arrived at the William Penn at 2 a.m., Saturday. Having a good nights rest, we arose early, after which I dashed up to the 17th floor to the registration desk where I bumped into Ray Schlegel (424/K) from Chicago, who had arrived just an hour or so before by rail.
After having breakfast in the hotel dining room, we hopped a taxi to Oakland where we attended the impressive and stirring memorial service in the Allegheny County Soldier's Memorial Hall. When the group pictures had been taken here, we gathered at the convention headquarters again, and where we met another lovely couple, Mr. & Mrs. James Easterling from Latta, S. C., who joined our party in the Continental for a good hour of fun before the noonday luncheon. Mr. Easterling was in the 424th with Mr. Schlegel. After the business meeting we got a glimpse of the Smokey City from Mt. Washington.
At the evening dinner, I met several more buddies from the 592d FA Bn -namely Tom Dorosky from Shavertown, Pa., Frank Rowland from Warren, Ohio, and Charles Schoch from Ft. Clinton. Ohio. The evening just seemed too short for this wonderful fellowship and conversation.
Due to our scheduled vacation trip, I had to leave the conversation earlier than desired, but we continued our journey Sunday morning by way of the magnificent turnpike to Washington D. C. Arriving here to admire the beautiful city illuminated, we then checked in at the Fairfax Hotel and later had dinner at Ted Lewis' on Connecticut Ave. After touring the city and Arlington Cemetery the following morning, we proceeded through Baltimore, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Jersey City, to New York City, where we spent two days sight-seeing, visiting, dining at the 'best' seafood restaurants, and took in the stage productions, 'Guys and Dolls' and 'South Pacific'.
Then, on to Connecticut via the beautiful Merritt Parkway to Voluntown where we had our Finnish Steam Bath and swim in the cool waters of Beach Pond. After a Shishkabob roast (hoped I spelled it correctly), we continued our way to Middleboro, Mass., where we stayed at my aunt's enjoying the 220 acres of Fair Havens. The next day, we took in Plymouth Rock and Cape Cod. Later that afternoon, we drove to Princeton. Mass., (16 miles north of Worcester) where we were lavishly entertained by another aunt of mine. Had wonderfully fresh lobster at the Meeting House and then drove to Mt. Wachusett to admire the scenic beauty of Massachusetts.
Time was running short, so we left for Niagara Falls, via Troy, Schenectady, Syracuse, and Buffalo, New York. Arriving at the Falls on the Sunday that Mr. Hill attempted his ride on the Falls, we were unable to get hotel quarters, so we continued our trip home through Canada and arrived in Detroit for a good rest at the Statler. Early Monday morning. August 6th, we began our last stretch to Chicago and Waukegan. Although the trip was wonderful in every respect including the New England hospitality, we were anxious to settle down once again. New England will live in our memories forever and I will look forward to the Convention in Baltimore next summer!
A beautiful wall decoration is available for all Lion Division members now. This is a casting in composition and in beautiful colors of our 106th Division emblem. This casting is 3 dimensional and is 15” in diameter. The manufacturer of this beautiful wall decoration will sell this for $5.00 including postage.
Because the manufacturer doesn't desire mail order business, arrangements have been made to address all your mail orders for this Division Emblem to Rev. Ronald A. Mosley, 2 Keane Road. East Natick, Massachusetts. Your orders will be promptly delivered by return mail.
CAPT. KENDIG C. BARE (106th Div. Hq.), and former mayor of Lancaster, Pa., was released from active duty July 15, the Kentucky Military District reported.
Capt. Bare, the youngest mayor in the history of Lancaster, has been serving as assistant senior army instructor for the district. He gave up his post as mayor last November when he was recalled to active duty. Capt. Bare requested a release on the basis of 'national interest'. He has not informed us of his future plans.

The New York Area's Company F Dinner was held on July 14th and the Midwest Area's Dinner was held July 28th. At these dinners, the members of Company F, 423rd Inf. 106th Division made plans for a big get-together at the Pittsburgh Convention. Both dinners proved very successful in New York City and Chicago.
The only Company in the 106th Association having their independent publication, 'Company F Guidon', is edited very efficiently by Art Kuespert, 531 S. Eddy St., South Bend, Indiana.
WHO IS THIS HANDSOME SOLDIER?
We can see he's proudly showing us that Golden Lion shoulder patch! He must be an ex-member of the 81st Engineers because this photo was taken at the Engineer’s Reunion in Newark on March 13th.
The National Auxiliary
The Auxiliary of the 106th Infantry Division Association held it's very successful meetings in the Convention Headquarters, the Hotel William Penn in Pittsburgh on Saturday. July 28th, and the following officers were elected for the year 1951-52:
PRESIDENT - Mrs. James E. Wells Hephzibah, Georgia
VICE PRESIDENT - Mrs. Robert Vorpagel, 9117 Mandole, Detroit 9, Michigan
SECRETARY-TREASURER ‑ Mrs. John T. Loveless 2549 Pickwick Rd., Baltimore 7, Maryland
Another accomplishment has been fulfilled by the auxiliary this year which included the purchase of a paraplegic chair for a veteran in need. This was presented at the 5th National Convention in Pittsburgh. Mrs. Mary Allen of Detroit, the 1950-51 President, expresses her gratefulness to those who helped her accomplish this worthy deed during the past year.

Rev. Edward 7. Boyle
Tour in Europe - foe pleasure
Boarding the Nieu Amsterdam for a 6 week vacation was a joy compared to the one I took in October 1944! What a Sad-Sack? Loaded down with helmet, shoulder-pack, blankets, al-pak, mess-kit! Now, the Porters were anxious to relieve you of every piece of luggage; friends to bid you 'Bon Voyage', plenty of room - two to a stateroom, instead of sixteen. Distressed? 'Ring the Stewart; he'll bring you comfort, clean your room, bring your meals to you in bed; a drink if you wish'. No Sir! Not the crowded, stinky, nauseating hold of the troopship. Now, you can relax in arms of deep sofa; call for service - Heinekens beer 10c Bols Gin 10c, Scotch 25c,. There is dancing for your enjoyment, the movies, etc. Buddy, you would enjoy a trip across the Atlantic now!
Remember the beach at LeHarve? Wading to shore; huddle against the walls of bombed-out buildings, against the cold, the penetrating dampness waiting for the Six-by-Six that will give you a windy ride to the mud flats above Rueon. Today, at the dock there is a covered ramp to modern station at door of which the latest Paris train was waiting to whisk us to Paris. In a few hours we were in a luxurious hotel just off the Champs Elysees.
Paris - 'Paris in the spring' - She's in bloom. Still expensive , but she has shaken off the drabness of war years. Boulevards are crowded with tourists. The Louvre is open, as are all the historical monuments. Conducted tours are many; night as well as day time. Better French restaurants are again serving their meals with all the eclat of prewar years. The meals are excellent. We found that we could live very reasonably in Paris by staying away from tourist spots. We got double rooms with bath for $3.00 to $3.50 and meals about a $1.00 or 350 to 450 Francs.
The French are rebuilding, but Italy even more so. We marveled at the numerous new apartment houses constructed through-out Italy. The Lire were 650 to the dollar, so except for places like Alberto's or the Bibliotheca, expenses were cheap. In Rome, there is so much to see-- magnificent monuments of Christian and Pagan Culture. Months could be spent there marveling at the fineness of art manifested in Churches, galleries, gardens, and ruins. It was our intent to participate in the Beautification Ceremonies of Pope Pius X. We were in the crowd of 5OO to 800 thousand people that were there that Sunday afternoon. I was privileged to say Mass in St. Peter's and many of the other great Churches of Rome. The Historical unity of the churches and relics to the Apostles and the early church were an inspiration to Faith. Visited the U. S. Cemetery at Anzio. Permanent Stone crosses are being erected over graves of bodies remaining.
Florence is a city of Art. Even today, she frowns on industry and prefers the arts. Artisans carry on their skills. Florence is proud of her art. After the war, her first efforts were to restore damaged art. Piece by piece, from the fragments, the ceiling of the Effizi Galleries were repaired. Nowhere will you see such outstanding art as seen in the Medici Chapels, Baptistry of St. John, Pittil Palace, Santa Croise Church, and Effizi Galleries.
Venice, smells of the sea- yet, magnificent, beautifully planted on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. She boasts of St. Marks, the Square, Doge's Palace, and her glass and lace work, the Lido. We were exceedingly fortunate while there to witness a grandiose Procession of Gondolas, launches, boats of every size and description, carrying cleric and lay people down the Grand Canal amid the waving of flags, standards, and whistles of several English and Italian warships. Atop one of the alunches was a beautiful white stone statue of Pope Pius X. This was to be installed in the Cathedral of St Marks, where as a Cardinal, the former Pope was Papal Leagate.
From Venice, we went to Switzerland by way of Milan and the Italian Alps -along shore of the Majore Lakes. In Milan, we were able to get a reserved sea, 2nd class, by racket of former U.S. Italian. When we were seated and on our way, the conductor came around and took off the reserved tickets. He was in on the contract. Switzerland sings out the majesty and magnificence of its Creator-from the valley of Interlochen to the heights of the Jungrrau! Truly, it is a delightful pleasure to view the magnificence of rugged nature. Unless you are heavy with lucre you don't stay at the best places. They are expensive, but you can also find places agreeable to your purse. Don't put your feet on the seat across from you on the Swiss
trains. The Conductor will request that you remove same. Switzerland is the cleanest and neatest of all European countries. Once, when we walked on the grass to ease weary feet, a citizen called our attention to the fact it was 'verboten'. Similarly, to walk across the R.R. tracks, you must use the passenger tunnels.
Fast trains now run between Basel and Frankfurt. Along the way, through the French zone, it seemed that only about 50% of railroad stations were rebuilt. In the American zone, - I would say about 80% rebuilt. Karlsrhue station is all rebuilt. In Frankfurt, there is a great deal of ruble despite the fact there is constant reconstruction. But, it must be remembered that there is little industry, little machinery, hence, most of the reconstruction is done manually which lengthens the process of reconstruction. The older sections, so-called slums are slower in rebuilding. One reason is that ten years are allowed for heirs to claim property before the State takes over. For this reason, much property is untouched. The stores are filled with food and other merchandise. Many department stores have been modernly reconstructed.
A friend in 'High Com.' loaned us his Volkswagen. We put about a thousand miles on it traveling central Germany. From Frankfurt we went to Wiesbaden, Mainz, Hedisheim, Bingen, up the Rhine to Koblenz, Bonn, to Cologne. The Dom is only in partial use and is being repaired. A great deal of city is still in ruins. Hotel accommodations were poor so we proceeded toward the Schnee Eiffel and spent the night in Euskirchen. The next day, we passed through the section that was the German position in the beginning of the 'Battle of the Bulge' around Prum. Because of the great forest, valleys, and railroad, we could understand how the 'Jerries' could build up much power behind their lines. Visa difficulties prevented us from entering our former positions in Belgium prior to the Bulge. However, all the farming towns seem to have recovered practically complete from the War. Patient oxen still clutter the road. All traces of war - signs, wires, equipment are gone.
In Luxembourg, we stopped at the American Cemetery. Some of our men had been buried there. Most of the bodies have been removed and the cemetery is rearranging the bodies and putting up stone crosses over each grave.
The Saarland is road- blocked by German and French soldiers. This is the only place we were stopped in Germany. First, by the French, then, the Germans both going into the Saarland and going out. We spent the night in Kaiserslautern and from there we took the Autobahn. The next two days, we really covered the miles. The Autobahn are all opened. We went to Mannheim, Heidelberg, Heilbron, Stuttgart, to Ettlingen, and Karlsruhe. Spent the night in the hotel in Ettlingen that was 2nd Battalion officers’ quarters. They really are doing the business. Four dining rooms were crowded all evening. From there we continued on Autobahn back to Frankfurt. Few soldiers were seen outside Frankfurt and Heidelberg, although installations were noticeable off the road. Germans are polite to tourists. Not, what you might call friendly.
In San Quentin, France, we spent a few days with the Corteel family. They entertained Father Day and myself several times while we were billeted there.
From there we went to Paris and Lourdes. In Lourdes, the thousands of pilgrims, men and women of every land and tongue participating in the devoations was inspiring. In Rome, visitors were viewing the Faith in brick and stone, glass and paint. Here, in Lourdes, was the Faith in action, people sincerely honoring their God and His Human mother, now glorified with Him. It was inspiring to the believer, though provoking to the skeptic.
Air-France, flew us to London. An excellent meal was served in route with wines and liquors. London was dressed up, freshly painted and powered for the Fair. Food was scarce. However, the English were spending. The hotels, bars, dining rooms were crowded. Many wore evening clothes.
Tea and cakes was served by a Colleen by Air-Lingus on the way to Dublin. There for thirty dollars (ten pounds) we rented a car and covered the width and breath of Eire. From Dublin to Cork, the Blarney Stone, Lakes of Killarney, Shannon, Westport and back to Dublin. The people were delightful and meals were the finest. Out from Colb, we took tender to the Mauritania. Our accommodations were good and the food excellent. Many fellow travelers were emigrants who were friendly and entertaining.
The 'vacation in Europe' is worthwhile. I'd do it again. It's. not as expensive as you think. Investigate and you will be surprised how economic-it can be. You arrange your accommodations according to your purse. You will enjoy Europe in peace time. Remember the exchange rates are in your favor.

'It was with deep appreciation that I accepted the office of President of the Auxiliary of the 106th Infantry Division Association and hope that I will be able to prove worthy of such honor, equal to the interest that my husband, James Wells, has felt for the Division Association since he has known of its organization.
It is through his serving with the 81st Engineer Combat Battalion of the 106th from activation until February 8, 1945, when he was injured that makes me eligible for this office.
I hope that in the coming year all the ladies of the Auxiliary will work their hardest towards encouraging other ladies of this Association to encourage their husbands to attend the next annual convention so they may once more meet their buddies with whom they spent some of their lives most happy and terrible moments.
The foundation has been laid for the auxiliary project for the coming year, but we are still awaiting clarification on some details. 1 hope to be able to present to you complete information on our project in the next issue of the CUB
I ask the support of all ladies of the Auxiliary in making the Baltimore Convention the most successful yet.'
Mrs. Maydean Wells, President
BATTLE PARTICIPATION CREDITS
Watch for your next issue of the CUB. Information regarding all unit and individual awards, including foreign citations won by the 106th Infantry Division during WV II will be published in the October-November CUB.

C.), who obtained this official information from the Adjutant General, we are for the first time able to present you with the official Battle Participation Credits, Distinguished Unit Citations, Meritorious Unit Commendations, and Foreign Unit Awards.
