Base Chaplain Goes



To New Assignment


Chaplain William L. Clark,
Base Chaplain at Drew Field since
August 1, 1941, has been trans-
ferred to Mitchell, Field, N. Y.,
and has left Drew for his new as-
signment. He recently received a
promotion to captain.
chaplainn Clark was the first
plainn assigned to Drew Field
after it was activated as an Army
Air Base. Two men attended the
first service he conducted at the
Field and for many months all
services were held in tents. Now
the chapels are filled for the eight
services conducted each Sunday
at Drew.
Besides his work in ministering
to the men at Drew, many of
whom were older than Chaplain
Clark himself, he filled a number
of pulpits in Tampa churches and
was a popular speaker at civic
clubs and church organizations.
Formerly pastor of the Mc-
Laurin Baptist Church, Hatties-
burg, Miss., Chaplain Clark at-
tended Mississippi College and
the Southwestern Baptist Theo-
logical Seminary at Fort Worth,
Tex. He was commissioned in
March, 1941, and called to duty
in June. Before coming to Drew,
he was stationed at MacDill Field.
TOP KICKS IN FIRST GRADE
The War Department has an-
nounced advancement of all first
Sergeants to the first pay grade
sergeants to the first pay grade
and advancement of certain sup-
ply sergeants to the third pay
grade, effective September 1.
First sergeants now receiving a
base pay of $114 a month-in
itself an increase from the old
base pay of $86-will advance to
$138 a month.
Also to be advanced on the
same date from grade four to
grade three are supply sergeants
of companies, batteries or troops,
technical supply sergeants of simi-
lar units in the Air Force, and as-
sistant sergeants of separate bat-
talions.
DARN THESE MOSQUITOES
The tall tales of mosquitoes
heard around Drew Field can't
.compare with the tale of a ser-
geant of the Camp Polk Armored
Division regarding the size and
intelligence of mosquitoes found
there.
"You know," relates the ser-
geant, "one of the soldiers lay in
the hospital, almost dying for
lack of blood. There was a man
in camp who had the proper type
of blood for a transfusion. A mos-
quito, zipping around the room,
overheard the sad news and took
off for a nearby town. He stung
a man with the right type of
'ood, then flew back and gave
I transfusion. Today that sol-
er is alive and healthy. How-
ever, when he talks, he makes a
buzzing, sound!"

Aymond Sergeant


Major at Base Hqs.


In case you are wondering who
that new sergeant major is at
Base Headquarters, it's Sgt. Louis
Aymond. Replacing Warrant Of-
ficer Bodo August 16, Sergeant
Aymond is nowV well intrenched
in his new office.
Heading a department with 22
employees is no easy job, ,but
Sergeant Aymond has taken over
the task with comparative ease.
His department handles all in-
coming military correspondence
and official papers, files all Head-
quarters correspondence, and su-
pervises the building and person-
nel.
Hailing from New Orleans, La.,
the affable Aymond entered the
Army in October, 1941. Prior to
his entry into the service, our
Tech-Sergeant Major was assis-
tant credit manager of a lumber
company in New Orleans.
Patient: "Doctor, how are my
chances?"
Doctor: "Oh, pretty good, but
I wouldn't start reading any con-
tinued stories."

OFFICER'S PARTY
Drew Field officers are in-
vited to attend a stag party at
the Officers Club this Friday
evening beginning at 8:30 p.m.


When Staff Sergeant Douglas
Dickerson of Drew Field's 55th
Fighter Squadion saved two peo-
ple from drowning several months
ago, he wasn't thinking of any
honors-he didn't have time. But
when the orders for citations in
his squadron came out recently
Sgt. Dickerson was duly recog-
nized for his heroism.
It happened while Sgt. Dicker-
son was based at Myrtle Beach,
S. C., last June. A corporal then,
Dickerson was enjoying a good
swim when he noticed a woman
floundering, about a hundred
yards offshore. She was helpless
aTd was being taken out by the
undertow. An expert swimmer,
the well-tanned Dickerson went
to the rescue.
Reaching the woman in record
time he towed her to shore.
Weary from the 100-yard tow
through a heavy sea, he sprawled
on the beach to rest. The weary
corporal had no more than
sprawled out when someone shout-
ed that a soldier was drowning.
With utter disregard for his state
of exhaustion from the first res-
cue and his own safety, he
plunged into the surf, swam to
the drowning soldier and pulled
him ashore.
Artificial respiration was- ap-
plied for 30 minutes before the
soldier was revived-Dickerson's
afternoon had been well spent.
According to the 20th Fighter
Group order citing Sgt. Dickerson
for heroism, "Corporal Dicker-
son's deed of rescuing a fellow
soldier from drowning under such
adverse conditions is a demonstra-
tion.of bravery above and beyond
the call of duty."
Promoted to staff sergeant
since this incident, Diclkerson
came to Drew a month ago, but
hasn't had a chance to show his
swimming ability yet.
MAJOR REYNOLDS NOW
DREW QUARTERMASTER
With the recent transfer of
Colonel J. F. Greene, the new
Base Quartermaster for Drew
Field is Major Harry T. Reynolds.
Major Reynolds was supply offi-
cer at Headquarters, Third Air
Force, before being appointed
quartermasetr at Drew.
A graduate of De Pauw and
Northwestern *Universities, Major
Reynolds was called to the serv-
ice in March, 1941, at Selfridge
Field.
Prior to military service, the
new quartermaster was a chain
store manager and school teacher
in Racine, Wisconsin.

... Ink Spots


By SGT. ROSENTHAL AND
CPL. DUGAN
1st Sgt. A. F. Miller was strick-
en with appendicitis while on fur-
lough. Good luck, Freddie, we're
all cheering for a quick recovery.
S/Sgt. Ray Armstrong is filling
in as this company's 1st sergeant
and is doing a splendid and re-
markable job, and, as always, is
on the ball. Keep it up, Ray, for
our Army needs men with your
character and capabilities to fill
responsible jobs.
We have a number of disheart-
ened soldiers who were to go on
a furlough but fate intervened.
That's why you see so many sol-
diers walking in town with their
heads bowed. If you don't believe
so, see Sgt. Chester or T/Sgt.
Taylor. Sgt. Willie Johnston,
pianist and composer, is doing a
swell job with the Drew Field or-
chestra .... T/4 Joe Weinbren,
the little Atlas, is teaching his
'low soldiers the art of weight-
,ing. Keep up the good work,
Joe, for it will be easy for your
students to lift the Japs off the
map. Sgt. Perry has returned
from a furlough and he looks very
blue. According to remarks,
rather we should say marks
(black eye) we understand he had
an unfortunate time Congrat-
ulations to Cpl. Gruskin, Sgt. Gil-
looly and Sgt. Lindebaugh for
their acceptance in OCS. .Army
routine brings about many trans-
fers and changes. The important
recent one concerned Capt. Lew-
man. He had been our company
commander and several times act-
ing battalion commander. To say
he is a fine soldier is not enough.
He was not a mechanized instru-
ment of the Army, but truly a
fine officer, an understanding
man, and highly esteemed friend
of the whole regiment. His word
was law and the enforcing of rules
was one of his principles. His
kind and understanding ways
made him outstanding in his of-
fice. We are sorry to come to the
parting of the ways, but perhaps
some time some of us may meet
him again, either at the battle
frontor in civilian life. Don't for-
get, if in civilian life, offer him
a snappy salute, for we all know
he deserves it. Best of luck, sir.
We are very glad 'to welcome
Lt. Robert B. Knox, Jr., as our
new company commander. Most of
the regiment is acquainted with
him from his previous military
and regimental duties. Good luck
to you, too, sir.
Wedding bells rang loud and
long at 6:45 p.m. Sept. 5, when
the rope was tied for Sgt. and
Mrs. Wiley Dunken. The cere-
mony was performed at the First
Methodist church in Tampa. Cpl.
Hunel M. Jones served as best
man. Before the marriage, Mrs.
Dunken was Miss Pauline Hunt,
of Waco, Texas. The newly mar-
ried couple are established for a
week at the Floridan.
Did you know Cpl. Arnold has
a brother in the Air Force who
was recently promoted to a Lt.
Colonel?
Speaking of the Floridan brings
another of life's little episodes
into the limelight. Sgt. Dick
Dray, who always seems to make
this column, is involved. Who was
that tall, sandy-haired Tallahas-
see girl who stared daggers with
our tall, dark, steady Tampa lady
-iend? My, what a triangle. Be-
(en the devil and the deep blue
Seems appropriate. What a
spot for a guy with a good line
of gab.
"Holy Joe's little helper," Pfc.
Lou Roeller, sure has the sweet
letters and lip marks from his
wife( Mary Helen, in Cincinnati.
He calls her his "Spi4 aby."
Some pet name, I'd say, and she
calls him "Pugy." That fits
though.
Cpl. Hubert McGrath is pacing
the floor harder and faster by the
hour, as he is to be a pap. He has
the cigars all ready. Wonder
what will happen if it happened
to be twins? I think McGrath
would be a flying corporal. May
he grow to be like his old man.


DREW FIELD ECHOES


"GODFREY TAKES THIS 'FLYING
PROGRAM SERIOUSLY."


Best of luck to the little Irish-
man.
It seems all the boys in the
Army don't want to get married.
In this we have a case of a pri-
vate who is looking for a divorce.
(By the way, this private's wife
joined the WAACs. Guess who.)
Pvt. Lapp has sent in a request
for permanent guard duty. Good
luck if you can get it.
Sgt. Mullen has been going to
town frequently. Can it be a gal
you're visiting ,Lester? .Pvt.
Wynn, who has been on K.P. six
days a week has been given his
promotion as a cook.
MOORE FIELD, Tex.-Little by
little, Pvts. J. Little and J. Tittle
of Moore Field are causing no
end of confusion. At roll call Lit-
tle answers for Tittle and Tittle
for Little. At mail call Tittle gets
Little's mail and Little Tittle's.
The mixup even reached the G.
I. laundry. Private Tittle was last
seen wearing a uniform two sizes
too large. It later developed that
Little's clothes had been issued to
Tittle who happens to be a littleA
littler than Little.
We saw it in ,The Fighting
Ninth of Fort Sill, Okla. You
might have got it elsewhere. A
noncommissioned officer is sup-
posed to have written this in an
essay:
"It is commonly supposed that
the first duty of a good soldier is
to die for his country. This is a
mistake. The first duty of a sol-
dier is to make his enemies die
for theirs."

By SGT. JOHN F. SUSZYNSKI
THE QUARTERMASTER IS A
GREAT GUY-everyone on his
staff is a grand person.
Pfc. Bob Kane is O.K., too....
By the way, did you know that
-the BAND INSTRUMENTS CAME
IN LAST SATURDAY (not that
that has anything to do with our
jubilation not much)? T he
Quartermaster certainly outdid
himself in making the boys hap-
py-thank you, QM. Now all we
need is the manpower to tote and
toot the stuff. There are capa-
ble musicians right here at IDrew
Field who would fit in very nicely
with our organization, if they
could be spared by the units to
which they are attached or as-
signed at present. Our field of
selection is much more limited
.than that of most organizations
on the Base, and we shall need a
lot of cooperation to effect the
transfer of personnel qualifying
for the Band. Any musicians in-
terested in joining our group, call
on WarrantOfficer Baker at the
Band's Orderly Room, upper bay,
Barracks T-272, or phone 388 F 1.
I just found out that Pfc. "Ma-
honey" Costello got himself mar-
ried a couple of days ago. I
wonder if that will cut off the
supply of supplementary rations
the gang has been enjoying by
virtue of Costello's parcel post
packages?
A most enlightening discussion
took place in our barracks when
Bandsmen Luukkonen and Estes,
totally oblivious of everybody else
in the room, aired their own rela-
tive merits and qualifications, and
all-round superiority to the gen-
eral run of corporals (the promo-
tions came their way last week).
No one disputed the neophytes'
claims. you see, last week's
corporals moved up a notch, and
it is now Sergeant Ferris; and,
in case you haven't noticed it,
there has also been a slight alter-
ation on this column's by-line.
S/Sgt. Eaton has been a very busy
fellow since he got back from his
furlough he absolutely refuses
to sit down and rest can it be
that pesky boil nesting on his glu-
teus maximus?
Cpl. Estes used to be called
"Alden" by the boys who knew
him when he was a rookie; now
he is threatening to "pull his
rank" if they persist in hailing
him with that affectionate tone
of voice.
Pfc. Booth is conducting indi-
vidual classes on how to be a so-
cial lion. Pfcs. Regis and Kowal-
ski have taken the course and are
now displaying the' wares at the
Main PX. I Xnder who the
object of their newly acquired
personal magnetism ca.n be?
I would like to tell you more
about our menagerie, but you'll
get to know each of us when we
start making our rounds of the
place... HERE'S HOPING THAT
WILL BE SOON.J
"TREES"
I think that I shall never see
A girl refuse a meal that's free;
A girl with hungry eyes not fixed
Upon the drink that's being
mixed;
A girl who doesn't like to wear
A lot of junk to match her hair;
Girls are loved by guys like me-
'Cause we don't like to kiss a tree.
-Anon, Walla Walla Eagle.


A Soldier's Life

By CPL. LARRY RALSTON
They say a soldier's life is dull,
And he gets knocked around;
And when he's blue, he's really
blue,
Just like a clock-unwound.

He isn't good for anything,
And he just comes and gos;
And from his bunk his buddies
hear
About his private woes.

He's sometimes sad, and lonesome
like,
Then other times he's glad;
But as a rule, the happy times
Are better than the bad.

He knows he fights for freedom's
light,
Although sometimes it seems
The light will dim, perhaps go out
And contradict his dreams.

So with God's help, he hopes and
prays
The day will soon draw near,
When all the hostile enemies
Will turn and run with fear.

So in the future he may see
His family live in peace,
And live a long and happy life
Before he must decease.



9th FIGHTERS


By CPL. MIKE DODD
Writing this column is a lot of
fun, but it has its drawbacks.
After reading last week's fantasia
story on promotion, two fellows
whom we absent-mindedly and
unintentionally forgot to include
among those upon whom Lady
Luck smiled, pounced on us and
wanted to know the why. My
head bumps the floor with apolo-
gies, boys. You, too, had a date
with the fair one that night. Be-
fore that rendezvous with Lady
Luck, Walter Blair was a Pfc.
Now he's a full-fledged corporal.
Likewise, Cpl. Dick Brennan add-
ed another stripe to his collection.
,S/Sgt. Bill Wilson, of our per-
sonnel office, decided he needed
a typewriter with an extra-length
carriage. Shortly after making
known that need to the supply
department, the sergeant's re-
quest was complied with. Upon
first glimpse of the machine,
Bill's eyes did a pop out. Great
guns! What was this? He got a
little more than he asked for.
The typewriter had a long car-
riage, all right. Twenty-six inches
long, to be exact. One of Bill's
typists sat down to try out the
big job. As he typed, the carriage
moved along out over the edge
of the desk across the passage
way, blocking the aisle. Sgt. Wil-
son returned the big typewriter
to the supply department, with a
note that it was too large for use
in his office. So what happened?
I batted out newspaper copy on
it. What a typewriter!
After a few weeks of fooling
around in school, Cpl. Don Hoppe
has settled back down to the
serious business of turning out
those slapstick cartoons, f o r
which he has received such wide
acclaim. Keep your schnozzle to
the drawing board, Don; you've
got Smoky Stover on the run, and
no foolin'. *
Furloughing this week are Sgt.
Mike O'Hara, Sgt. Dick Bren-
nan, Sgt. Bill Hudgins, Pfc. Mar-
cus Lochbaum, Cpl. John T.
Mann, Emile Muhs, Floyd Brent,
John Bruce, Alton Buchanan,
Huel Burgin, Ferdinand Cornibe,
Harold Davis, Milton Gammage,
Samuel Levinson, George Meier,
Floyd Rhodes, Louis Simoneaux,
George Thomas, Luke Tucci and
James Wright. May these gents
have a pip of a. good time at
home.


Air Transport Command Offers Chance


For Technicians To Advance Rapidly


The Army Air 'Forces Air
Transport Command, which is fly-
ing more miles and carrying more
freight and passengers than did
all of the nation's commercial air-
lines prior to the war, needs
skilled radiomen and other spe-
cialists to keep its fleet of trans-
port (cargo) planes at peak per-
formance to supply the fighting
forces of the United Nations with
vitally needed material, the War
Department points out.
While the men will be enlisted
as privates, it is expected that be-
cause of their technical training
many of them will receive techni-
cian and non-commissioned offi-
cer ratings.
Non-commissioned officers un-
der the present pay rates receive
as high as $138 pe" month as a
master sergeant with proportion-
ate pay for all lower grades. In
addition, free food, quarters,
clothing and medical care are pro-
vided.
Some of these men will be as-
signed to foreign service and re-
ceive an additional 10 per cent of
their base pay; some will be on
flying duty and receive an extra
50 per cent of base pay; all will
have a chance for rapid advance-
ment.

Under the 8th Wing


By PFC. L. E. BLOCH
M/Sgt. James Thompson, the
Wing's sergeant major, will re-
port for Officer Candidate Class
at Miami which begins September
16. Another fine potential officer
coming up from the ranks .
The Wing officers, who started
their program of organized ath-
letics last week, are setting a won-
derful example for the men by the
zestful way in which they partici-
pate, not to mention their keen
anticipation of the daily event.
Lt. Buttacavoli was certainly
taken by surprise when Major
Bachelder ,evidently recalling his
football days, threw a tackle at
him during PT period that would.
have stopped a Notre Dame left'
halfback dead in his tracks .
Pvt. John Lowney was out cele-
brating his birthday (so he
claimed) Saturday night when an
extremely heavy Florida dew
badly dampened his ardor .
Nomination for the-Wing's No. 1
shack rat: S/Sgt. Wilfred Hering.
Where does he go? We are
sure you have noticed the signs
on the various buildings since wb
moved into the new area. Well,
they were made by our own Pvt.
Peter Hartes. Quite an artist! .
Pvt. Ray Schwarzhman has evi-
denced much interest in music of
late-especially percussion instru-
ments. If this war lasts very
long, some young lady up in
Michigan is going to have to hire
a hall in which to store the vari-
ous and sundry souvenirs sent her
by a certain Pfc. in the medics.
. What's cooking Luca? .
Pvt. John Grant had visitors from
way up in Rhode Island (you've
heard of it even if you haven't
seen it) this week-his mother
and sister. ... Lucky devil! .
Pvt. Merle ("Kentucky") Win-
burn took a trip down to the Mac-
Dill Hospital last week to undergo
an operation. Hope he'll soon be
back with us. One need only
hear the command "About Face!"
from Lt. Fontaine to realize he's
an officer and a. gentleman from
Virginia, .Suh. Pvt. Charles
Coco asked the writer to snap his
picture last Sunday. After that
first shot the camera refused to
work any more. Anyway he was
warned.


Hd. and Hq. Squadron
3rd Fighter Command

Sea Breezes

By PVT. ALVIN M. AMSTER
At writing time the promotions
have not been revealed but we
can congratulate John Gosselin
and Phil Burke for their ad-
vancements to buck sergeants.
More dope next week.
The girls at Third Fighter
Headquarters, as did others last
Monday, blossomed out in their
new uniforms and the-comments
heard were most favorable. Mean-
while Major Catlette who had
charge of the order had a big
headache removed with the de-
livery of the garments.
Sgt. John I. Goodwin of the
carpenter shop really can turn out
nice work. We saw some of his
attractive little cabinets.
Tech. 5th Gr. Paul Ashe of
Med. Det. recently decided to
catch 40 winks after breakfast.
He dropped off to sleep quickly
and must have been dreaming
about his wife back home because
one of the boys gave him a hot-
foot, using three matches, and
Paul slept on calmly.
Compliments to Mess Hall for
having the tables wiped off after
a group finishes eating. Also
those donuts last Sunday were
plenty OK.
HOT DOTS .. Amendment to
our column two weeks ago: The
name "Sam Wilson" should have
read ".SAM PALMER." How's
this, Sammy boy? NORM ZIN-
SER threatens that if he doesn't
get his name in this week's col-
umn we don't get passes to town.
Can't have that, Norm, so does
this fix it? And how come
"Tootsie" Groves calls S/Sgt.
George Jones "Buttercup"? .
We still can't get it straight
whether it's S/Sgt. (NMI) Kosor,
.S/Sgt. Frankie Antonucci, or Sgt.
Pete Washe who boins for Penn-
sylvania Evelyn. By the way,
,Ray Joffrion, how's Clearwater
'"Windy" these days? And
Ray (KP Kid) Cely insists KP
develops your muskles (ask Pop-
eye).
Sgt. Lee McGuire, who works
at Hq., Third Fighter, one after-
noon walked around with some
kind of home-made sign pasted
on the back of his shirt by a joke-
ster. He would still be wearing it
if Miss Peggy Perrin hadn't told
him.
Well, Lt. Bateman, has Major
Conklin finally convinced you
that the AC has it all over the
Infantry like a parachute? (Argu-
ment continues,)
Some ex-teachers who are not
worrying about teaching school
this year are Lt. Lane of Supply,
Ed Knippers, Jim Reid, and
yours truly (oh, yes, we had many
cute gals in our classes).
Bill Jones, John Sweeney, and
Carl Kehr are available at the
P.X. every night from 5:30 until
9 if you boys need them. Wonder
why?
If your ash tray needs fixing,
call Doug Flott. Apples sure help
a guy get acquainted with beauti-
ful blondes, don't they Walt Dor-
wart?
"Jingle, Jangle" Genkle likes
to pull guard at Hq., Third Fight-
er, because he claims he usually
wins flips for cokes. We know.
Tom Willoughby says he is com-
ing down with bug bites. What
kind, pal?
Did you know Col. George P.
Tourtellot is a song composer and
has several to his credit? It's a
fact. We saw one of his composi-


Sub Depot Subs


Greetings from the employees
of the Drew Sub-Depot Headquar-
ters. To begin with, we would
like to introduce you to the baby
of the office force.
Doris Hartman, who is only 18,
already has two years of col-
lege (Stetson), and in two weeks
intends to go back and finish law
school. She is a member of Pi
Kappa Delta, a National Debate
Fraternity. Doris has been typing
since she was 12. She went to a
business college in Pittsburgh' at
that age, where she objected to
being babied by her classmates,
all over high school age.
Mary Rose Gallagher, red-
headed glamour-girl file clerk,
used to be bashful. Canyamagine!
"Red" is always running over to
the MacDill Field Hospital. Is
that why you want to be an army
nurse? Still, we've noticed a cer-
tain someone at Base Headquar-
ters who holds a prominent place
in her affections. Now who could
that be?
Horace F. Ashton was born,
he can't prove it. He has no bi
certificate. He says he lived to
grow up and regret it. Mr. Ash-
ton is fair, forty, but not tat. He
claims that he still has his girlish
figure. He .has done a great deal
of travel in Central and .South
America, a nd brought many
things back with him. However,
only one is worth mentioning-
his wife. While in Santo Domingo,
he was accused of espionage, and
thrown in jail the same one
Columbus occupied on his third
voyage. They soon discovered it
was a case of mistaken identity.
Jeannette Murrill, pronounced
Janet, please, hails from the
Strawberry City. She likes bru-
nettes, cooking (she can cook,
too, boys)- and Spencer Tracy. She
finds life in Tampa most exciting.
What do you mean, Jeannette?
Florence Moore, messenger, has
a brother who is an ensign in the
Navy, but she is partial to the
Army. Her favorite hobby is writ-
ing letters to men in service and
illustrating them with her own
cartoons. Her one ambition is to
ride in an Army ambulance with
the siren wailing. She will talk
for hours on her favorite subject
-her little brother, Sonny.
Betty Lou Casey is Flo's oppo-
site. She has a brother in the
Army, but prefers sailors. Her
only interests in life are skating,
aviation and sailors. The deep,
dark secret of her life is the rea-
son for her dislike for Tampa.
What is it, Casey.
Mrs. Tate, Gladys for short, is
our most versatile office worker.
She has in her lifetime managed
a life insurance company, written,
and acted in a radio program
broadcast from Cincinnati, been
the adviser in an advice for the
lovelorn program, won several
golf trophies in the Woman's
Southern Golf Tournament, been
a model, a spotter in a detective
agency, and works at the Filter
Center every fourth night, six
hours at a stretch. She claims
she has never been an opera sing-
er, but 'we wonder.

tions while Herm Bartels of Hq.
was trying to hum the music.
Quite a few months ago while
he was still a civilian, Joe
Hresko and his weightlifting pals
from a Joisey YMCA had their
picture taken doing their stuff.
The next thing he knew w"a
when a copy of the pic caught
with him last week. It had (
all the way from China where it
had been published in one of the
leading physical training journals
there. How's that for fame?
A pome to conclude this week's
issue: "Hey, jerk, you're wanted
for night work."

DREW FIELD ECHOES


Serving the Service

Squadron .. 327th

By LOUIS O'MALLEY
It is being said that when Pfc.
MONAHAN went home to greet
the new arrival, he immediately
borrowed his neighbor's victrola
with the automatic changer. .
Pvt. HEAD called his girl friend
and asked her about some old-
fashioned love making and she
got him a date with her grand-
mother .... When Cpl. HAYES
asked Pfc. CROWLEY why it
took so long to fill the pepper-
shakers, he replied it was a tough
job getting the stuff in those tiny
holes.
Sgt. MARTINO was asked if he
had any stage experience and he
said he had his leg in a cast once.
Pfc. TRACY tells me he
likes those miniature cocktails-
one drink and in a miniature out.
.. When Pfc. GRIFFITH was
examined for appendicitis, the
medicos said it was a sight to be
holed. Pvt. MERKIN'S girl
friend thinks he is on a secret
mission, as he wrote her he is on
K.P. Pfc. YOCINA says the
S'nd storms last week lifted ev-
thing on his farm except the
mortgage. That teamore pink
towel and those sky-blue slippers
of a certain private in Barracks
413 are just too ducky. Cpl.
VOIGHT was heard singing, "She
was only a second-hand furniture
dealer's daughter but she wouldn't
allow much on the old davenport."
Sgt. GRANT MOSES calls his
girl "Tonsils" because so many
doctors take her out. ... Cpl.
BURNS seems to think that those
three balls in front of a pawn
shop mean two to one you won't
get the watch out. Pvt. MON-
ZO was in a big train robbery
when he went home on furlough.
He went into the dining car and
had dinner. When Pfc.
STUMPO went home on furlough
the mayor gave him the keys to
the city, then changed all the
locks. ... C. pl. GORGEOUS Mc-
ELWAINE calls his pay "Cold
Cash," for it never stays with him
long enough to get warm .
During running exercises the
other morning, when Sgt. HAM-
MOCK was told that the early
bird gets the worm, he said,
"Look what happened to the
worm for being out early." .
Pvt. NORBUT says when you are
out with a flat tire, a little jack
will help.
Cpl. SAUNDERS' favorite song
is "She's only a Pullman.conduc-
tor's daughter, but she gave me a
wide berth." Is it true that
Pfc. MILEFSKY on seeing a lady
drowning off shore at St. Peters-
burg, threw her cake of soap to
wash her back? When JOE
RETZ registered at the Y in St.
Petersburg, the clerk asked if he
wanted an inside or outside room,
Retz replied, "An inside room, it
looks too much like rain." .
NATHAN and BORGEOUS are
having a struggle operating the
crash truck without the capable
aid of CRASH BEHRENS, who is
serving as corporal of the guard.
Who was the guard on duty at
the North Gate when Mrs. Berry
and her daughter pulled up in
their car? On being halted, she
immediately replied, "We are the
Berries." To which the guard re-
plied, "I don't care if you're the
cat's meow, you don't get in here
without a pass." MIKE BI-
SICK says the mosquitoes are so
numerous out at the Motor Pool
where he is on guard that they are
black and blue from bumping into
each other.
- Pfc. PIEKUT says that was af-
fctionate pie we had for chow the
other day, the top crust was stuck
to the bottom one. .... Cpl.
FRANKENFIELD thinks a west-

HQ and HQ Squadron

By CPL. H. A. HORTON
Our Group Athletic Field is
taking on pretentious dimensions.
The plans call for two softball
diamonds, two football gridirons,
five basket ball courts, three vol-
ley ball courts and a quarter-mile
track. Keep in mind these plans
aren't just on paper, but the work
is actually under construction and
it is hoped that within a couple
of weeks all of these facilities
will be available for our use. The
group as a whole owes a deep
sense of appreciation to the offi-
cers who initiated this project
and particularly to the enlisted
men who are doing the actual
construction work.
Hq. & Hq. Sq. extends its best
wishes to Major Kaeppel who has
relinquished command of the
Group to take over other duties
in another state. We know that
under the able- hands of Captain
Turner who is now in command
of the Group and Lt. Rice, the
new C. O. of this squadron, we
will continue to go forward in
our desire to become the finest
outfit on the field.
At this time, too, we welcome
to our midst Lt. Henry G. Patter-
son as Group Adjutant and Lt.
Vernon D. Bunce as our new sup-
ply officer.
Congratulations are in order
for Cpl. O'Donnell, Group postal
clerk, who is about to take unto
himself a wife while home on fur-
lough. Best of everything, Jack.
Pfc. Trott once again strikes
his chest with both fists and pro-
claims himself master of his art.
His challenge goes to the entire
army. He wants competition in
field-stripping the M-1 rifle. Our
money is on you, Prof.'
What was Pfc. Anderson doing
out on the runway with his am-
bulance the other day? Looking
for something to happen?
September 2nd was zebra day
again, and caught in the middle
were Pfcs. DeSanto, Ernst, Galla-
tin, Horton, O'Donnell, Plummer,
Rosengreen, Shields, Wolf, Avery,
Casey, Kane, Praznoskia and
Schultz, who moved up to non-
com status, while Bloyer and Mc-
Glade picked up sergeant chev-
rons. At the same time, Pvts.
D'Angelo, Mancini, Brayer, Filip-
poni, Middleton, Daws, Anderson,
Rollins and Pasternak stepped
into the realm of Pfcs. These
moves up the line stand as mute
testimony to the caliber of men
we have in our squadron. Keep
up the good work, fellows.

Resnik, all offers are "out" in the

Latest episode in the LIFE OF
LEVY centers around a little in-
cident in the husky Levy's hut the
other night. "Mess Manager" Jack
Finley was searching in vain for
his tie, he was late for a date
with a chaplain. Finally, he threw
up his hands'in disgust, "Levy,
have you seen my tie?" he quer-
ied. Levy, absorbed in a letter to
his draft board, aimed a sub-con-
scious look at Finley and blandly
replied, "Dunno, pal. What color
was it?"
Bud Thomas, EX- sSrgeant
Ramey's latest protege in the
shady recesses of the battalion
kitchen, bitterly claims he has
gained 27 pounds on G.I. food
since he was drafted four months
ago. In this claim, Thomas com-
pletely ignores the fact that beer
is notoriously fattening.
It was almost with tear-filled
eyes that the 2nd Reporting boys
said goodbye to their eTstwhile
buddies, Jones, Tierney, Radigan,
et al.

Impressions of

PX Girls...
From Interviews by
CPL. LEONARD G. RUBIN
The first thing I was told was,
"Why can't the boys be more po-
lite?" It made me feel kind of
ashamed, for after all the girls
work hard to please us, and it
seems that the least we could do
is to be polite. The boys who
shout, "Hey, Sis," and "Hey,
you," with the attitude that "she
is only a P.X. gal," should take
this criticism to heart. These girls
feel that they are just as impor-
tant and hard working as any
young ladies on the post and
should be treated accordingly.
-K-K-K
Many are the lines given to
these girls. Here are some of the
most common, ones: "You remind
me so much of a girl back home,"
or "You could be the sister of a
girl I know." "Do you know that
you look like Dorothy Lamour (or
some other actress) ?" "Do you
know any nice places in town, be-
cause I'd like to have you show
me some of them?"
-K-K-K
In spite of all our shortcom-
ings, men, the girls say they much
prefer us to civilian boys. They
say that most of the soldiers are
swell fellows, but a small minori-
ty are classified as follows: The
pesty type, the snooty type, the
romantic type, the know-it-all
type, the wise-guy type, the com-
manding type and the lonesome
type. If you are one of these
types, the girls advise that you be
a regular fellow and treat them
just like any girl you respect.
-K-(-K
The girls think that smart duty
uniforms would add to the appear-
ance of the Post Exchange, and in
addition would like to wear on
their off duty hours the smart
new blue uniforms worn by the
other girls on the post. They also
feel that a big new soda bar
would be popular and a good
thing to have.

Let's try to follow the girls'
suggestions as to our manners and
they'll reciprocate with service
with a smile. Also let's try to
keep the Post Exchange and the
grounds around it as clean as
possible for it's our P.X. and the
best way to get a new, bigger, and
better one is to show that we can
take care of the ones we have.
DID YOU KNOW
. That you can use a watch to
determine direction? Direct the
hour hand toward the sun, then
a bearing half way between the
hour hand and the 12 o'clock
mark on your watch is true south.

.That in judging distance you
can clearly see a person's mouth
and eyes a hundred yards away
the face is indistinct at three
hundred yards the head and
hat can be seen and colors can
be distinguished at five hundred
yards it is difficult to dis-
tinguish the head at seven hun-
dred yards?

S. That you can identify infan-
try on the march from a distance
by the low, thick cloud of dust
that is raised cavalry on the
march by a high, thin cloud of
dust motor trucks by a heavy,
rapidly moving cloud of dust .
tanks by a heavy, moving cloud
of dust?

SCOTT FIELD, 11.-Did they
win or did they lose?
Here's the story. You decide.
Two S c o t t Field privates,
Charles Shaffer and Ted Cuellar,
were slugging at each other in
one of the weekly intersquadron
boxing Ibouts.
For two rounds they fought on
even terms, but in the third both
men answered the bell set for a
quick KO in mind.
Both let loose with simultane-
ous haymakers and sent each
other sprawling on the canvas.
The referee counted them both
out. Did they both win? Or did
they both lose?
A sergeant at Fort Bliss is
"sweating out" a staff sergeant's
rating-he's afraid he's going to
get it.
He has it all figured out that
if he is promoted he will stand to
lose $54. Even if he happens to
be advanced to master sergeant

he will lose $10, he says, and it
will pay him more to be busted

It's all due to the dependents'

lowances to dependents of enlist-
ed men of the fourth, fifth, sixth,
or seventh grades, but not of the'
first three. The sergeant has a
wife and five children.

564th PLOTT. CO.


DOTS AND DASHES

By CPL. S. C. KATZENELL
This column is not intended to
be an obituary but friends, there's
a fellow soldier of yours, Pvt. Ev-
erett W. McElwee, confined at
MacDill Hospital and he's very
lonesome. A'visit from some of
his friends in the 564th would be
appreciated 'by Soldier McElwee
yond words.
iHailing from Kokomo, Ind., Mc-
"wee has been in the service for
six months, and three of the six
months he has been located with
the Plotting Company. Besides be-
ing a good drill man, McElwee is
one of the neatest looking privates
in the Plotting Company. We
don't know whether his clothes
are tailor-made or he just has a
knack of wearing clothes. When
Everett dresses for inspection he
looks like the soldier that you see
in magazines and in the movies
dressed to perfection.
Well, boys, we know you won't
disappoint McElwee.

Now that Sgt. Jukes Feinberg
has left us we can tell this one
about him.
One bright August morning
back in Atlantic City, the ser-
geant was strolling nonchalantly
down the board walk when all of
a sudden he heard a cry from the
ocean, "Help, help!" Without
hesitation, Feinberg threw off his
neatly tailored white coat and
dove into the ocean. When he
reached the spot where the cry
was coming from, to his amazze-
ment, he saw a stout man in a
row boat smoking away on a ci-
gar and listening to a portable
radio. The radio was going full

blast. When the stout man saw
Feinberg, he shut off the radio
and helped the future sergeant
into the boat. After he regained
his wind, Feinberg asked where's
the woman who was crying for
help. The man said, "What wom-
an? Oh, I know what what you
mean. That was the radio. I was
listening to a gangster story. A
woman was being held up and she
was yelling for help." Feinberg
almost passed out.

Pfc. John Griner encountered
Cpl. Stanley Roark on the Com-
pany street the other day. A gen-
eral conversation about various
cities of the United States came
about, for no reason at all. Roark
said: "I'm from Danville."
Griner snapped: "Boy, we're
fellow citizens., I'm from Dan-
ville, too."
- Roark answered: "Where's
your southern accent?"
Griner retorted: "Where's your
eastern accent gone?"
Roark came back: "I'm from
Danville, Va."
Griner explained: "I'm from
Danville, Ill."

503d MEDICAL

SHOTS and PHYSICS

By T/5TH GR. ROBERT E.
BEACH
This correspondent's b o d y
beautiful is badly battered, what
with moving and nice long walks
in the moonlight from Tampa!
Moving seems to be peculiarly en-
demic to Drew Field. I'm begin-
ning to be of the opinion that the
turtle-snail family have some-
thing.
That glaze over S/Sgt. Robert
E. Brown's eyes is not myopia. A
little stardust got in them when
the angels were visiting wife Ora
to announce the impending arri-
val of a little bundle from heaven.
Really, Bob, you needn't be so
shy about it.
Did you know T/Sgt.'Barrie D.
Bryant is a graduate nurse and
was the night superintendent of
one of the south's largest hospi-
tals? By the way, Sgt. Bryant,
just how did you manage to fall
from a bicycle while deep sea fish-
ing from a rowboat?
.Speaking of deep sea fishing,
our nice, shiny, brand-new com-
pany commander, 1st Lt. Francis
J. Kelly, landed a 96-pound 5 foot
10 inch tarpon and we're justly
proud of him. Also we are just
that pleased with our new com-
pany commander.
We have had a very interesting
contest between our tents, the best
tent of day received afternoon
passes. Needless to say, it has
been running hot and heavy.
That digging you have been
watching us do is not a Victory
garden, although we'd like to
have one. The digging has been
on our new baseball field. We
like it. Incidentally, we have some
crackerjack horseshoe players.
Would anyone care to take us on?
Nyaaah, we dare you!!
------^-------
TO CHARLEY
Dear God, always keep him safely,
Be with him both day and night-
Give him strength to face the
enemy,
Keep his pathway shinihg bright,
Let Thy spirit always linger,
Let him, know that You are there.
Tell him that I love him dearly,
And for him I send this prayer-
Father, drive away his sadness,
Cause his troubles all to flee,
And when this bitter war is over,
Please, God, send him home to
ME. Eva Vernon,
Hickan Field Highlights.


505th 3rd Reporting Company

NOTES
By NOEL WILKINS
Revenge is so sweet, especially
when the challenger is so humili-
atingly vanquished. Isn't it, Sgt.
Bryant? To think that you had
courage enough to even play the
3rd Reporting Company! We will
be only too glad to teach you
bush league amateurs the funda-
mentals of softball at any time.

The wondering sons of the 3rd
Rptg. Co. are rapidly returning to
their parent organization. For
three months Pvts. Carter, Light-
foot, Byrd, Clement, Maglares and
Pettit lived in the most luxurious
grandeur that only Chicago can
provide.

Pvts. Fisher, Read, Bloskovich
and Cacioppo have promised to
warm our hearts with Moon-laden
stories about the dreamy-eyed co-
eds at the University of Georgia.

Orchids to T/Sgt. Donald P.
Zwirlein for the splendid lecture
he delivered on the fundamentals
of radio to the Radar Dept.

Scallions to the company re-
porter for not getting the news in
on time.

Gloom reigns in the local Flat
Bush again. Reason: the Regimen-
tal Pill Rollers; rolled better pills
down Broadway last Sunday.
Cupid discharged another bun-
de of darts in the last forntight.
Pvt. Ignazio Morello returned
from a 10-day furlough with a
little bit of heaven with him.
The fluid functioning of the
3rd Reporting Company was ren-
dered a severe blow with its cur-
rent loss of 1st Sgt. John P. Bry-
ant to the Communications Com-
pany. Your humble reporter now
predicts great achievements for
them in view of their recent gain.
The 3rd Reporting Company
welcomes the return of Tech. Sgt.
Donald P. Zwirlien from school.
The company "grease pool" was
surprised with the recent promo-
tion of Sgt. DiBerardinis to a
staff sergeantcy.
Patient: "Doctor, I must tell
you that this is my first 'operation
and that I'm nearly scared to
death."
Youthful Surgeon: "Yes, I
know just how you feel. It's also
my first one."

Drew Team Drops

Three Games Over

Last Week-End

The Drew Interceptors dropped
all three games away from home
over the past week-end. Losing to
Orlando Air Base on Saturday and
Sunday by the scores of 4-0, 4-3,
and 7-0 to Lakeland on Monday.
Big Carlos Moore limited the
Orlando nine to two hits on Satur-
day in pitching superb ball for
the Interceptors, but his mates
failed to back up his fine mound
performance. Errickson allowed
the Drew team two blows to
match the pitching of Moore. The
big right-hander for Drew struck
out five of the first six men to
face him. A wild streak by Moore
in the fourth and fifth innings
gave the Orlando team their runs.
Lefty Brown toed the rubber
for the Interceptors on .Sunday
and was shaded by Jess Plummer
in a hot mound duel, 4-3. Drew
knotted the count at three-all
midway of the game, but the lo-
cals forged ahead in the late in-
nings to cop the game.
The two-game series ended a
series of eight games played be-
tween the two nines with Drew
winning only two.
The Interceptors moved over to
Lakela'nd on Labor Day, where
they were defeated by the Food
Machinery nine, 7-0. An erratic
outfield proved the downfall of
the Drew team as the gardeners
kicked the ball over the lot. Bros-
nan went the distance for the In-
terceptors, but did not get the
support afield. Drew could not
solve the offerings of Lefty Gart-
rell as they were shut out for the
second time oyer the week-end.
With these three games, Drew
probably ended a very successful
baseball season with 37 wins
against 20 defeats.
SIG. HQ. AND HQ. CO.
DEFEATS MULBERRY, 6-2
By LARRY RALSTON
Signal Hq. and Hq baseball team
turned in a Labor Day victory
over the Mulberry team by trim-
ming them, 6-2, on the Pierce dia-
mond in Mulberry.
Wajouchowski started on the
mound for Hq Co., and was re-
lieved by Foust in the fifth. Mul-
berry raked the two hurlers for
nine hits, while the visitors col-
lected 11 hits. Parrish was the
losing pitcher for Mulberry.
The soldiers scored a single run
in the first frame, three in the
eighth and twice in the ninth.
Mulberry scored all their runs in
the fifth and six innings on timely
hitting.
After the game, the Hq. Co.
was invited to a community gath-
ering, where a chicken supper was
served, followed by a dance.

Former Pitt Star

On Drew Team

Cpl. Ernest Bonelli, former
football and baseball player for
the University of Pittsburgh is
now stationed with the Signal
Corps at Drew Field.
The former athlete was a mem-
ber of the great Pitt football team,
where he operated in the back-
field at right halfback with All-
American Marshall Goldberg. Cpl.
Bonelli was mentioned on several
All-America selections.
Besides being an outstanding
football player, Bonelli' played
two years of varsity baseball at
the hot corner, where he hit over
.400. Cpl. Bonelli now roams the
outfield for the Drew Field Inter-
ceptors baseball team, where he
is an outstanding fielder and hit-
ter for the team.
Cpl. Bonelli says" his toughest
football game was against Duke
University in 1940, when two
passes were completed over his
head with Duke whining, 10-7.
(Quote: "He didn't lose the
game.")
To a fine athlete, we salute you,
Cpl. Bonelli.

Hq. and Hq. Sq. 9th Fighter Wing

The Fighting 9th
By CPL. WALTER WERNER
"Good evening, friends,'' (both
of you), how you-all making' out?
01' Fightin' Ninth didn't appear
last week, but now we are ready
for business again at the same old
stand. Irma, see what the boys
in the :back room will have.
Seems that the men and offi-
cers of the Fightin' Ninth had a
little ol' volley (ball game last
Monday, but we ain't a saying
much about that game. No, suh.
But when we play 'em next time,
and if we win-boys, you'll hear
about it. But loud. So help me.
Meet the boys: Pvt. Louis
Beaulieu, our boy from Beverly,
Mass., is cooking' with gas on his
new job. He has charge of the
Ordnance tent. Want a few point-
ers o n automatics, tommies,
Springfields, machine guns or
what have you?-just see Lou.
He's the man.
S/Sgt. Otto Kratochvil, our ver-
satile A.M. man from Cicero, Ill.,
is on the line now, and they say
he really knows his stuff. Some
more of our boys who are keep-
ing 'emh flying are Pvts. William

FEMMES


Our ear-to-the-ground operator
wasn't on her toes this week, and
when time came for the assem-
blage of tidbits they were lacking,
so again we ask you girls in the
various sections to hand in your
news-also any of you fellas who
know anything on the gals (that
can be printed) and who would be
interested in becoming secret
members of our espionage com-
mittee, for goo'ness sake (and
the sake of the column) GIVE....
While on the subject of espionage,
ears-to-the-ground, etc., it inter-
ested us to know that the long
distance telephone girls, in put-
ting in calls for various inhabi-
tants of the BOQ, have become
so familiar with the parties con-
cerned that all they need to know
is who's calling and the town to
finish the call-f'rinstance, "This
is Lt. Casanova, and I want to
make a call ot Atlanta" then
chirps the operator, "'Tuff said,
Lieutenant, I'll have 'er on the
line in a minute." Keen, huh? :..
The Quartermaster personnel
really gave a super going-away
party for Col. Greene. They pre-
sented him with a wristwatch,
properly inscribed, to remember
them by. We heard they took lots
of pictures but that Mrs. Greene,
who was also present, censored
the poses before the shots were
taken. We've been asked if
'tis true what the Tribune said
about the Drew gals (also Mac-
Dill) on the front page of their
society section giving up their
date-books for the duration in fa-
vor of more seriofis activities, and'
think we can safely shout, "Tain't
true!" We've been look-alikes
for a week now, so howd'ye like it,
gals, and howd'ya like us, guys?
Thought I'd get the opinion of a
staff officer, and when the ques-
tion was put to him the answer
was-quote- Ahhhhhhhh! -un-
quote-which might mean most
anything .... Inter-office to Sgt.
Caruso: Lissen, Sergeant, I'm a
columnist, not a one-woman USO,
however, mabbe you've got some-
thing there, so I'll take it up at
the next Board meeting.

"You know," relates the ser geant, "one of the soldiers lay in the hospital, almost dying for lack of blood. There was a man in camp who had the proper type of blood for a transfusion.
