The Pentagon assigned the citizen soldiers control of four provinces in northern Iraq. It was the first time since World War II that Librado Romero The New York Times the entire division was called to active duty. It was the first time in Army history that the division replaced an active- duty division. The Army is investigating the deaths a week ago of two 42nd Infantry Division soldiers in Tikrit. 'One can conclude that we're going to run out of soldiers' first of three parts Today: From interviews across the country with dozens of Guard soldiers and families, Pentagon officials, congressmen, governors, recruiters, military analysts and other experts, a picture of the Army National Guard emerges as one of hard work and honorable service against a backdrop of mounting difficulties. But the crushing personal and family demands of overseas deployments threaten a citizen-soldier tradition enshrined in the Constitution and rooted in 350 years of history. Tuesday: How the Guard has changed, already and permanently. Wednesday: How the Guard can be fixed, and why gridlock bars the way. By David Wood and Harry Estcvc Newtiouse News Service Thrown into a fast-paced new era of lighting insurgents abroad and pro- tecting neighbors from terrorists at home, the Army National Guard is hang- ing on by its fingertips. It provides half the Army's combat power and is the country's primary ter- rorism response team. But its battalions struggle to scrape up enough soldiers and hand-me-down equipment to meet over- seas deployment orders. Recruiting has fallen behind, and seasoned soldiers are quitting in frustration. Today the Guard is barely able to meet the Pentagon's demands for manpower overseas. Its unils arc exhausted. Internal Guard documents tell the story: All 10 of its Special Forces units, all 147 military police units, 97 of 101 infantry units, and 73 of 75 armor units cannot go to war without outside reinforcements. The Guard needs billion worth of equip- ment to sustain its operations, a bill Washington may balk at paying. Any new crisis a bloody escalation overseas or a series of massive terrorist attacks could find the Guard unable to respond and the United States at risk. The Guard is losing soldiers and can- not attract enough recruits to replace them. The normally dependable flow of soldiers moving from active duty into the National Guard has slowed dramatically. "One can said Brig. Gen. Bill Libby, commander of the Maine Na- tional Guard, "that we're going to run out of soldiers."

By Rebecca James Staff writer Scientists, including one at Cornell University, are using technology to peer into murky oceans and spy on the world's largest animal, which can weigh more than a dozen tractor-trailers but often remains hidden in deep ocean waters. Technological advances that penetrate the secret lives of whales also reveal the many ways human beings, with their ever-increasing amounts of noisy ships, coastal development and toxic pollution, threalen the sur- CHRISTOPHER CLARK, director of Cornell Uni- versity's Bioacoustics Research Program, shows an autonomous recording unit, which can be dropped to the bottom of the ocean to record John photographer whales singing and other sounds. Studies by Clark and others found that increasing noise pollution is hampering the ability of whales to communicate across thousands of square miles. vival of this animal that has lived 50 million years. Cornell researcher Christopher Clark uses the Navy's submarine monitoring system to follow whales underwater over entire oceans, finding out where they live and how they talk to each other. His discovery that some whales can easily communicate over thousands of square miles came with Uie realization that their environment rarely allows that opportunity.
