Wednesday, June 8, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Sabrina Mumma2The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944.

Seriously, it was only (gasp) 40 years ago that the principal said if I promised to never come back they would graduate me. What young people in school today take for granted was only the stuff of the comics, science ction books and B-grade movies. Space travel and going to the moon is what our hero Flash Gordon did at the Saturday afternoon matinees we kids would go to. It would cost a whole quarter to get in! For most of my years in school, we never heard the word computer. We worked out problems with a slide rule. Well, some did. I pretty much slept though math class and history and chemistry and English too. I was tired, okay? In the 40 years since I graduated, the knowledge that man has gained, the inventions, the medical breakthroughs that have occured and the exploration of space have been nothing short of amazing. The Kwajalein seniors who graduated Friday evening have an even more promising future ahead of them. They also have a challenging one. They face a new world of terrorism and uncertainty. But I believe that they and others like them are capable of rising to the challenges. It may be their generation that achieves the peace that has eluded man for so long. It's a new dawn for the graduates and that glow they see is the brightness of the future that awaits them.

The music also varies slightly each year as she nds new things that are appropriate. Students’ two-cents are also considered in planning the year’s ‘Wacky Olympics.’ Second grade, for instance, chooses to do a short cheer. “Classes have input into colors, and also work with teachers at their grade level,” she said. “Each year turns out a little bit different as we get new teachers with new ideas, which is great. In that respect, I am just here as a resource and mediator for those students and teachers. It is de nitely a team effort from every class, teacher, parent and community member involved in the event.” Halfway through the ‘Wacky Olympics,’ second-grader Krystal Phu, wearing class colors and “war paint,” said her favorite event was the three-legged race. “It’s really fun and it’s kind of hard, but it’s OK,” she said. Phu explained that she was looking forward to the wheelbarrow race, because she said, “I’m really good at walking on two hands.”By Mig Owens Assistant editorA classic “Ready, set, go!” set a stampede of elementary students across the Corlett Recreation Center gym oor last week to sit on balloons, drive human wheelbarrows, and fan Wif e golf balls, among other unconventional activities, at the school’s annual ‘Wacky Olympics.’ The games took place Friday for George Seitz Elementary School for grades one and two and Saturday for grades three through six. Students participated in as many as 16 events over the course of two hours. According to Sharon Greenbaum, physical education teacher, the events are wacky, but simple. “We only make subtle changes from year to year as most people like to know what to expect. Last year we added the three-legged race, the potato sack relay and a wheelbarrow race to our long-lasting favorite events. That went over well, so this year we are keeping those events,” she explained. Greenbaum said when she gets an idea or suggestion, she’s willing to try several new events, but feels


Wednesday, June 8, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Mig Owens Assistant editorRebekah Ladd took a deep breath before entering the Dayve Davis Multi-Purpose Room and smiled. Beyond the threshold, a proud community waited to greet the senior, one of 16 graduating from Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School Friday night. Walking barefoot on a ‘red carpet’ of woven palm frawns, the students approached the stage, candles in hand, for their nal act as a class. “They are a small class but have always turned out a quality product in everything they have done,” Steve Howell, high school principal, said of the graduating class in an interview. “They are truly an outstanding group of people and will be missed.” Valedictorian Stephanie Berlind spoke of what she learned from the determination and perseverance of the Boston Red Sox, who after years of struggle, won the World Series. To the Class of 2005, she said, “With teamwork, greatness will come.” Entertainment was offered during the commencement program to the standing-room-only crowd by Jessie Brown, who did the hula to Maunaleo and Lindsay Davis, who sang I Hope You Dance Brown and Ian Taylor narrated class history, recalling plays, projects, musical instruments, dances, and “fun lled days in the sun, sand and surf.” In doing so, they marked the time not only by grade in school, but by arrival and departure of classmates. “We were seniors at last,” Taylor concluded, “facing senioritis, painting the street and barbecues. With new respect for the island, we are ready to embrace our futures. Goodbye Kwaj. Good times, good times.” Images of the seniors’ ‘family’ history were shared by way of an Album of Memories slideshow, featuring snapshots highlighting trips to Bigej, Halloween costumes and days at the beach. Class representatives Chris Desmarais, Ladd and Marcy Peterson then offered thanks to Susan Davis, Becky Ladd, AnnElise Peterson and Linda Berlind for their support of the class. They also thanked Jamie Bowers, school counselor and Barbara Bicanich, senior class advisor. Turning to the parents in the audience, Peterson said, “I know you'll be sad to see us leave, but 'Oh the Places We Will Go'...We have brains in our head and feet in our shoes. We will steer ourselves in the direction we choose. We only hope that direction will make you proud." As Howell read the seniors’ names and future plans, COL Beverly Stipe, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site commander, handed each their diploma. Derick deBrum then led the class in the traditional turning of the tassels. In the courtyard, graduates were congratulated by friends and family with leis, returning to the MP Room for a reception. “As always we turn out an excellent product and this group of graduates are headed for success at the higher education level,” Howell said in an interview. “They are well prepared academically and socially for whatever awaits them.” S c h o l a r s h i p s Scholarships Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club: Marcy Peterson, $1,000, Lindsay Davis, $1,250; Rebekah Ladd, $1,500 American Legion Women’s Auxiliary: Jessie Brown, Melissa Razook, $500 each Filipino Civic Club: Rebekah Ladd Fiesta Hispanic Club: Lindsay Davis, LeslieAna Curtiss, $1,000 each Kwajalein Art Guild: Leslie-Ana Curtiss Kwajalein Scuba Club: Maria Geeslin, $1,000 Jine Tip Tip: Derick deBrum, Shem Livai, Marcy Peterson Jiron Drik Drik: Stephanie Berlind Student Government Association: Leslie-Ana Curtiss, Marcy Peterson, Jessie Brown, Stephanie Berlind, $1,100 total for all four Kwajalein Range Services: Lindsay Davis, $3,000; Leslie-Ana Curtiss, Shem Livai, $5,000 each; Marcy Peterson, Jessie Brown, Rebekah Ladd, Stepanie Berlind, $7,500 each Class of 2005 takes barefoot steps toward future

Wednesday, June 8, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Hazards found behind adult pool evidence of wartime on Kwajalein By Mig Owens Assistant editorErosion near the adult pool in the past few weeks has exposed and spilled out onto the sand more than 1,000 small arms rounds, a mortar round and a grenade, according to Tom Eisele, Kwajalein Range Services Explosive Ordnance Disposal team leader. Concerned citizens walking the beach were the rst to encounter the rounds and to notify EOD. A fence has been erected prohibiting public access until the approximate 50-foot area is deemed safe. “Due to the cultural sensitivity of the site, EOD has not responded to rounds which have not yet washed out of the sandy wall,” Eisele said. “We have been working with Leslie Mead of the Archeological of ce with KRS on this issue. KRS ES&H [Environmental Safety and Health] is currently working the erosion issue.” “Shoreline protection and erosion prevention methods could include back lling and revegitation,” Jim Rugg, Environmental manager, said. Eisele said that operations are ongoing and that unexploded ordnance presents no immediate hazard. They are safe to store and are held in the bunker area until a large-scale demolition operation is set up on Illiginni. “UXOs that are sensitive and not safe to store are disposed of immediately either on site or at another location away from personnel and property with USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] commander approval,” he said. The area where the munitions are washing out is considered signi cant and highly sensitive for archaeological resources, according to Mead, archeologist. This particular area of the island, she said, has eroded before, at which time human remains were found on the beach. “We know that this area was heavily contested during the Battle of Kwajalein and we also know that at least one Japanese coastal defense pillbox was located in the immediate vicinity,” she said. “By the time the battle reached this part of the island, the Americans in this area were passing along the northeastern side of what was referred to as the Admiralty area.Mead said the Admiralty area was heavily built up by the Japanese with administrative buildings and warehouses.“The Japanese resistance was erce as by this point the Americans had made comparatively short work of assaulting the xed defensive positions (pillboxes, ri e pits, machine gun emplacements and spider holes) south and west of this area,” she explained. “Combat more closely resembled the house-to-house ghting of urban warfare with the Japanese utilizing the structures that had been demolished during the pre-invasion and invasion naval gun re and air raids for cover to launch attacks.” The UXO found was not outside the norm for Kwajalein, said Eisele. He added that the small arms rounds found are British .303 ammunition, which he said must have been taken from the British in Hong Kong or Singapore and then brought here for the use of the Japanese soldiers on the island. Mead said that perhaps more important is what the rounds tell about the ghting in the area between what is now the Kwaj Lodge and adult pool. “The Japanese used the 7.7 mm cartridge speci cally for the Ri e Type 99, the HMG (Heavy Machine Gun Type 92) or the LMG (Heavy Machine Gun) Type 99…Tom and Darryl (Satko) at EOD have told me that the rounds appear to be being found in groups of 50 and some have paper adhering to them,” she said. Given this information, Mead speculates that the gun these rounds were packaged for is the Type 99 ri e. “The Type 99 was a bolt-action ri e, which was designed to replace the more familiar Arisaka Type 30/38 ri e. The gun was a signi cant innovation and had considerably greater re power than the Arisaka,” Mead explained. “However, the higher recoil caused by its use of the heavier 7.7 mm cartridge made it more dif cult for the average Japanese soldier to handle.” A critical question still to be answered, Mead said, is how many of the rounds have been red and what is the ratio of Japanese to American rounds. “If the vast majority of these rounds are the 303 (7.7 mm) rounds (i.e., Japanese) and they have not been red, it is likely that what is eroding out is a munitions’ cache, probably associated with a ri e pit or other type of emplacement. What we might be seeing would be the remains of a group of munitions that had been brought forward for use by a speci c gun but were never red.” Mead said this leaves the tantalizing picture of a gun emplacement that was either never able to be manned as it was initially intended or was overrun so rapidly that the individual never had the opportunity to re. According to Mike Moore, USAKA Installation Safety of cer, this particular UXO situation is an interesting one because it also involves non-safety of ces. “The environmental folks are working with DPW [Directorate of Public Works] to try and stop the soil and beach erosion at the fenced-in beach site,” he said. “The UXO is being ‘washed out’ from the land and being discovered. Additionally, the archaeologist is involved to ensure historical site integrity and adherence to host nation guidance.” Moore and Eisele ask the public to use caution and remember the three ‘Rs’ when it comes to UXO: recognize, retreat and report. “The situation is stable and residents should not be alarmed,” Moore said. “We ask all Kwajalein, RoiNamur and host nation personnel to look out for UXO or suspicious items. Because of the WWII battles here, UXO is sometimes found on the surface, sub-surface and underwater within the Kwajalein Atoll.”Eisele said, “If you do not know what you are about to pick up then maybe you should just let it be where it is. If you think it may be a UXO, explosives or explosive-related, then give us a call at 51433.” EOD can also be reached through the 911 system or the police department.

Greenbaum’s hope is that students nd ‘Wacky Olympics’ fun and that they demonstrate what has been taught throughout the year, such as being willing and exible to work with their peers, being safe and listening well despite being excited and demonstrating good sportsmanship.She said, “It gives the students a fun, team-building, energy-burning event to look forward to at the end of the year, when something like this is very appropriate given the kiddos (and staff!) have ‘summer fever.’”WACKY, from Page 3 THREE SHOWS! 6:30 p.m., FRIDAYAT THE RICHARDSON 9:30 p.m., SATURDAY, AT THE YUK CLUB 8 p.m., SUNDAY, AT ROI OUTRIGGER Sun Moon Tides Sun rise/set Moon rise/set High Tide Low Tide Thursday 0630/1907 0806/2109 0520, 5.4' 1150, 1.1' June 9 1740, 4.1' 2330, 1.3' Friday 0630/1907 0858/2158 0550, 5.3' 1220, 1.2' June 10 1820, 4.0' 2400, 1.3' Saturday 0630/1907 0949/2243 0630, 5.1' 1300, 1.4' June 11 1900, 3.8'
