I had, what seemed to me then, two terribly large bulls. It took ca lot of encour- i gemcn't: from father before I would in tlho corral wdtli them. Pitting isi.d bulk -wore new to my family. Every- one offered from feed- ing rations.....to bleaching their tails." So reports Deanne Fcs-r, Big P.ney 4-H'tr, in the t'cry of her 10-year 4-H career. Deanne's 4-H his.ory shews a long string of projcot successes with .these "two terribly large Lulls." They iock blue araS red lib- Ions at the county fair and later solO for bcjuinlns Deanne's ca.ik recount. Tliere wx occasional failures 'ilie she baked her first muffins.

But persistence won cut and soon the family was asking for Decline's Okcs, hot rclLs, and tipeohlty bruids, too. Hor caving otoiy is similar.

These new junior leaders of the Guard are comparable in number to five graduating classes of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point. Every Amer- ican knows i about the famed West Point on the Hudson that venerable institution that has turned out so many of our nation's m i 1 i- tary leaders but few are aware of the 47 Gen. Kerr w e s t Points" now turning out tomor- row's leaders for the Army National Guard. These are State-operated Of- ficer Candidate Schools, de- signed to meet the Army Guard's (r r o w i n p need for qualified junior officers. "The World War II officer is .moving into field grade and senior officer says Mftj. Gen. Clayton P. Kcrr, Assistant Chief for Army of the National Guard Bureau, "and our Korea veterans, too, are ready to move up. We have now a pood, vigorous program that will provide a steady stream of new platoon leaders and com- pany commanders." This program represents a brand new concept in officer training for the civilian soldiers of the Guard. In 1950 only one State Massachusetts had mich a school in operation. To- day the figure has mushroomed to include 48 States plus the District of Columbia and the ultimate goal to get 50 States And Puerto Rico into the program. Gone are the day young National could earn a commission simply by taking a series of U. S. Army extension courses. Today he must first undergo six months of active duty basic training- before he can be con- sidered for a commission. Then, if he meets the rigid screening requirements, he may attend Officer Candidate School. Although the schools vary slightly from State to State, the average length of an OCS course is one year, running from the beginning of one two- week summer field training period to the end of the next, and encompassing about five week-end sessions in between a total of 38 to 40 days of in- tensive school training. All 47 schools arc fully ac- credited by the U. S. Army Infantry School at Fort Ben- m'ng, Ga., and all follow the same course of instruction. The rigid screening which CHIN IN! Cttfet at a National Guard Oftcer Candidate Selwo! is "braced" by M upper profnw U iftdenraj im precedes selection continues. throughout the course. While "hazing" is not practiced, can- didates soon learn that they are engaged in a serious busi- ness and that only the best among them will finish the course. Spit and polish, disci- pline, character development, and brain-power are the by- words of the system, the sole purpose of which fs to produce officers who are well-rounded. Officers Go To School Graduation is always a proud moment for candidates, for it means not only a commission in the Army National Guard, but in the Reserve of the United Slates Army as well. Gold bars, however, do not mark an end to the education of a new sec- ond lieutenant in the Guard. Most States require officers to attend their active Army branch schools within two years after I commissioning, and National Guard Bureau regulations re- quire such schooling as a pre- requisite for promotion on up through the ranks. For those Guardsmen who can take enough time away from civilian pursuits, active Army OCS still presents an excellent opportunity to earn a commis- sion. Most Guardsmen espe- cially those who have just com- pleted a long period of active duty basic training simply do not have this much time to spare, however, and this is why the State OCS program came into being in the first place: it was designed to provide first- rate officer training to Guards- men in their spare time. "This year more than a thou- sand young Army National Guardsmen will earn their com- missions through this State- operated OCS says Gen. Kerr. "Their training has been excellent and, just as im- portant, their future is almost unlimited. Current promotion policies present better promo- tion opportunities to young offi- cers than at any time in the past ten yean."
