Rucker, Ala. Cadet Captain James K. Lagarde, company commander, was presented the commander's award for being the most outstanding member of the Pershing Rifles in the nation. It is the highest award thatf is given to any member of the Pershing Rifles. The award is given annually to the cadet who in his performance and general way of life influences the organization's history for a long period of time. The unit copped the second highest award at the meet, following only the commanders award, that of being named the best company at the meet. The company staff received first place votes in five of the six staff positions. They amassed a total of 81 points, some 21 ahead of their closest rival, LSU, who received a total of 60. In the drill competition the unit took home the trophy for second place. They garnered a total of 905.6 points. This was just 1.25 points behind the two teams that tied for first place, LSU and Florida State university. The individual ratings, which composed the 905.5 points were acquired as follows: Bob Friedrichs, third place in advanced individual drill; William Barnes, third place in best basic individual drill, second place in squad competition, squad commanded by Michael Lobrano; in platoon competition, the P-R's were thii-d under the command of Jack Dardis, and in fancy drill, they were fourth. Regimental commander Col. H. Moore said in designating the company as the best company, "This company has come from the bottom to the very top in one short year." Due credit should be given to adet First Lt. Michael Zeldon, who has worked diligently throughout the year to get the unit in shape for the meet, and was unable to attend due to his law school exams.At the meet itself, the unit received a letter from Baton Rouge stating that the company color guard, under the command of Richard Kelly had won first place in the recent Southern Invitational Drill meet held in Baton Rouge. The reason for the delay was that another company had claimed the color guard was guilty of a violation, but the claim was disallowed. ROTC takes two trophies. . . Lt. Col.
