President's Column

J. Glenn Schnizlein

 

     I hope that everyone who reads this column this month will feel individual responsibility for building our membership. Our present membership is 176 - compared to 650 last year and 860 in 1949-50 - What a TERIFFIC decrease! Muster up every bit of enthusiasm you have now and remember the spirit of the founding of the Association. We want our Association to be alive, active and growing - not dead, inert and decreasing.

     Without dwelling pessimistically, raise your hopes, put forth concentrated effort and work to build up our membership.

     176 members should mean 176 salesmen for the CUB and the Association. Use all your ideas to contact the former members and renew their interest in us. If you still know of buddies who have never joined - personally invite them.

     We have good organization. Be proud of it. Read again the column by Bob Kelly in the last CUB. Review our aims as stated in our bylaws. We have built up a Memorial Fund for the children of KIA's and certainly everybody derives much pleasure in the continued comradeship.

     The local chapter should have as goal, 100% subscription to the CUB. Contact and re-contact everyone who has attended a December 16th Memorial Reunion - they have shown some interest - it's your job to cultivate that interest by your salesmanship.

     Christmas and the Holiday Spirit is upon us. Send glad tidings to your buddies and stimulate their participation in our activities.

     If you have any suggestions as to how the National Association and its Officers can increase membership, please tell me about them NOW.

     I sincerely wish you all, each and everyone, a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

 

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. Beck copies available at 25c each.

THINGS ARE IMPROVING

Believe it or not - but things are improving. Probably, the article, 'Please Notify' in the last CUB did a lot of good. Recently, more than ever, the adjutant and editorial office have received more Changes of Address from members of the Association. From all indications, it appears as though the CUB is desired wherever you go. Keep up the good work, men, this is what keeps a good outfit GOOD!

Whether you move temporarily or permanently, please drop us postcard about your change of address.

As The Editor Sees It

Arvo O. Paananen

 

MEMBERSHIP - Let's stress and act on this subject for the remainder of the fiscal year!

     With over 2000 names and addresses of former members of the Division Association on file, there should be no reason why only 1000 are currently paid members.

     At the last convention in Pittsburgh, the board of directors appointed Membership Co-Chairmen for the purpose of membership promotion. But, these men cannot do everything without the cooperation of every man in the Association. You have closer contact with friends that are not members of your organization.

     The cheapest and easiest way to raise money for the Association is through direct personal contact with your friends who were members of the 106th Infantry Division and now are located in the same area you live in. Why can't you take 'ten’ and write a letter or postcard to these men, telling them about your Association, and inviting them to join.

     One of the Association's reasons for existence is to provide a channel whereby you former alumni of the 106th can learn about your buddies. The medium for this is the CUB OF THE GOLDEN LION, which reaches the membership every two months.

The Association wants to serve you, its members, and it, also, wants to bring into its ranks all those who for the moment have not joined. When this organization grows larger, it can serve you better. Every new member makes it that much stronger and, thereby, that much better able to function effectively. The growth and strength depend on YOU. Show your active interest by demonstrating your ability to promote membership.

 

DON' T PUT IT OFF - DO IT NOW!

 

THE TARO LEAF

     If you have a buddy who is an ex-member of the 24th Infantry Division, please tell him of the wonderful publication, 'Taro Leaf', which is regularly edited by Joseph I. Peyton, 131 North Culver St., Baltimore, Maryland.

 

NEW ENGLANDERS

GET READY!

Your turn has now arrived! The 1952 Convention of the 106th Infantry Division Association is moving into Baltimore, Maryland for Thursday, July 24th through Sunday, July 27th. The 'headquarters extraordinary' will be the famous Lord Baltimore Hotel.

     The Midwest has managed the conventions in the previous years and finally we are able to reach the former members of the Golden Lion Division on the East Coast. Let's let our buddies know about this convention by dropping them a line now.

Our 1952 Convention Chairman, John T. Loveless, Jr., 2549 Pickwick Rd., Dickeyville, Baltimore 7, Maryland, will give careful consideration to all suggestions from directors. Officers, and individual members of the Association.

SV BTRY, 592D FA BN, was a great team- a team of great men who performed a great duty servicing you and I during the Bulge. It was an outfit with unusually high moral among the men at all times. This one of its many good points, made the outfit what it was.

In the above photo we see just one action of Service Battery on a rest cure in Heilbronn, Germany, in 1945. From L to R kneeling; Sgt William Wingo, and Sgt Wallace. L.to R standing; Stephen E. Moore, Chesney, Vidnansky, Skilbred, T. A. Smith, and Foreman.

The Seventh Anniversary

 

     Time Marches On! Seven years have passed since our buddies faced a grim struggle against the longest odds in numbers and fire power of any other division in WV II. Our fallen comrades in arms, with their blood, wrote a somber and heroic chapter in the annals of American military history. It is our duty to commemorate this date - December 16th - to the memory of those Golden Lion men who paid the supreme sacrifice in order that you and I may enjoy Peace on Earth.

     December 16th is drawing near. If you haven't planned anything for this seventh anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Bulge, please act NOW and make arrangements to have every possible veteran of the 106th Infantry Division attend your reunion in your area. This respect is a small favor in memory of our lost but not forgotten buddies.

     Of course, there are many Golden Lion men too distant from cities where memorial reunions are held, but this anniversary date need not be overlooked for this reason alone - Your respect can be shown by your remittance of a contribution to the Memorial Scholarship Fund, so that a child of your buddy may be happy. ACT 'TODAY.

     Successful reunions were held in numerous cities last year and the editor acknowledged wonderful report. about these affairs bath before and after the anniversary date. It is expected that the editorial office hear reports promptly-again this year from Albany, Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago, Columbus, Decatur, Detroit, Harrisburg, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York City, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St Louis, Springfield, Uniontown, Washington D. C., and Waterbury. Let's get in there and pitch, men!

Will You Remember?

     The care and treatment accorded our servicemen in hospital. is the best in the world and the attention of the American Red Cross and topflight entertainers bring unforgettable moments of pleasure to these men.

     But, there is still a vast vacancy and unforgivable neglect that only you and I can remedy. That is the neglect to visit the boys in the hospitals or even write them cheery, newsy, homey, personal letters.

     Christmas is drawing nigh. Don't forget these men who in many cases, fought and bled to preserve your peace and liberty. Do your bit today!

 

LEGION POST COMMANDER

     George N. Jones, Jr., (423/Sv Co), of Route 82, Loris, South Carolina, was recently elected Commander of their American Legion Post in his home town. George also writes and tells us he doesn't want to miss an issue of the CUB, therefore, wants to be on time in forwarding his membership dues to the adjutant.

Chaplain's Column

Rev. Edward T. Boyle

Our Nations Morals

     The million youths that the Communists gathered into East Berlin should give us Americans 'Food for Thought'. A very great number of these youths came from nations whose peoples hated Communism. Yet, in how short a time, their children are avid Communists. The Reds, with a few men, strategically placed in office have taken control of nations. Then, they set out to capture the mind of youth by filling their minds with untruths and atheistic philosophy of life. Hitler did the same. The older, good, folks did nothing-standing by helpless.

     The same thing can happen here - if we let it - if we do nothing, stand by helpless. The Masses of our people have little or no education in a Christian philosophy of life. Why? Because two generations have been educated without God or God's morality as part of their training. In fact, the teachers could express their personal philosophy, even if it be Communistic, in the classroom. But, to tell of God or His Truth, it is against the law. Surely, something is wrong. Enlightened people though we be, how does it come that we can tolerate such basic wrong?

     Our sincere national leaders are frightened at the low level of public morals. If we don't. do something about this situation soon, we will find that the masses will be swayed by an Atheistic philosophy that will destroy this Nation. Standards of morality are set by expediency rather than the Creators 'Design of Life'.

     Religion moat come back into the education of our youth. There is a Creator who designed nature. (who can study the order of the world, the body, or anything and not marvel at the Wisdom of the Creator)? He had a purpose - to share His happiness with man. Youth must then realize he must harness his emotions, his 'fallen nature', and guide and direct his every act to that one objective, the acquisition of Eternal Life with his Maker.

     Parents who love their children and desire that they live moral lives, should endeavor to bring religion back into public education. Meanwhile, they must see to it that their children get some religious education. Without a motive for, how can they resist the thrill that tempters promise?
