Reveille! Well, reveille may beon its way out.An Army study group has looked atthe idea for a couple of years — alongwith a lot of other things that couldaggravate today's recruit, and recom-mended taps for reveille.The final decision is up to ArmyChief of Staff Gen. William C. West-moreland.Along with the bugle wake-up — inmost cases it's a recording — theArmy study group would Jnnk the ac-companying formation of all the menoutside the barracks a few minuteslater.The whole idea of reveille Is to get ahead count every morning, read a fewinstructions and get everybody off onthe right foot.But there arc other ways to do thesethings, the Army figures. "These kidstoday understand what time they'resupposed to get up and be someplace," says Brig. Gen. James Adam-son, chief of the group studying waysto make the Army more attractive,and all-volunteer al the same time.In fact. Adamson has found in histrips to Army bases in the States andEurope that some commanders al-ready have done away with reveille."Many commanders already knowkids are different from what theywere 20 years ago," he says.Well, what was wrong with the kids20 years ago? Couldn't they tell time,or when to get up?"Why we've done it all these years,I don't know," Adamson says. In abroader sense, he says, "Everythingwe do should be critically analyzed."We can't accept everything we did20 years ago as valid. It may be, butit must be questioned."Reveille is on a list of some 800things that need working out to makea volunteer Army a going concern, hesays. Reveille doesn't cost a thing, butmore important things, such as im- ,proved housing, take time and nionrv SSome other practices on shakv "ground arc harassment, seven-daywork weeks in some cases, and tha'told sergeant's favorite, "make work ""Midnight inspections and 'makework,* " Adamson says, "that's all gotto come off,"Lotns-Ford 72 Slams Into Guardrail ^Austrian Race Driver Jochen Rindt Killed in Crash at Monza(Continued from Page l) j and Monza," he said.the time as Rindt tried to bring itaround."Tlie Lotus was demolished.(Eyewitnesses could not agreeon whether a wheel came off be-fore the accident.

People opposed to safetymeasures simply have sickminds.
