36. GENERAL. The librarian should be thoroughly familiar
with all of the oversea facilities and services of the Information
Branch and the Education Branch of the Morale Services
Division, and should make use of these in servicing
troops. The commanding officer of the Special Service Company
should retain close liaison with the Special Service
Branch in the theater of operations headquarters.
37. INFORMATION. a. Newsmap. As soon as the Special
Service Company reaches its oversea destination or reaches a
new destination after change of location, the company commander
should contact the Special Service Branch in theater
of operations headquarters, for copies of the weekly Newsmap
which are sent upon request to the commanding general of
the theater of operations by the Morale Services Division,
Army Service Forces, War Department.
(1) Circulation of the Newsmap is extremely difficult and
delivery to theaters of operation uncertain. The company
commander of the Special Service Company should take
steps to keep himself informed as to when and where copies
of the Newsmap may be secured.
(2) The librarian should check the weekly Newsmap as
soon as it is made available and should post it in a conspicuous
place. He should take steps to see that the place where
the Newsmap is posted is made known to all troops of the
area in which the company or platoon is operating. This can
be done effectively through notices in soldier newspapers,
verbal announcements by those directly in charge of troops,
and by posting announcements on bulletin boards.
