By Col. and Mrs. Asp
Colonel and Mrs. Melvin P. Asp
formally opened the. new Post
Exchange No. 9, Wednesday, at
11 a. m. Mrs. Asp, escorted by
Captain Morris I. Porter, Assist-
ant Exchange Officer, formally
cut the jonquil and iris colored

thereby opening to business Drew
Field's newest and loveliest sol-
dier exchange. The jonquil and
iris colored ribbons signified the
colors of the 'Army Air Forces.
Mrs. Asp was presented with a
bouquet of iris and jonquils by
James Lynch, son of Captain J.
The new exchange is located
on "D" street in Building No. 10
of the Hospital area. Lt. Col. Jay
F. Gamel, Base Surgeon, express-
ed himself as being very pleased
with the new P.X. Said he: "This
new P.X. will be an excellent
morale builder for the boys in the
hospital, and for the men of the
medical detachment who are

to see this excellent P.X. located

Expert Rifle Shot
On Drew Range
"Another potato, please."
No, that wasn't heard in a mess
hall at Drew Field-at least Ken
Beegle didn't say it there.
He was on the Drew rifle range,
and was speaking to his wife. She
tossed up the potato, and as a
large gathering of soldiers
watched, he smashed it with a
single high-powered rifle shot.
He smashed cabbage, oranges,
grapefruit, squash, and what have
you, in a separate sequence with
different guns-just to give the
Drew soldiers an idea of how a
simple thing like a bullet works
when it has a man and a gun be-
Using 13 types of guns and a
.38-calibre revolver, Beegle, with
Mrs. Beegle, gave a special dem-
onstration of ammunition to
Drew soldiers Thursday, Friday
and Saturday of this week. Rep-
resenting DuPonts Remington
and Peters powder and projec-
tiles, his demonstration, both edu-
cational and entertaining, won
wide applause from the soldiers
Some Special Stunts
It's duck soup for Beegle to
burst three targets tossed up at
once by his wife, or to pop moth
balls or small washers hurled
high. He doesn't brag about shoot-
ing two targets at once, one sta-
tionary and another swinging.
And the mirror aiming isn't any-
thing, either, he says.
However, he admits that it took
some time to shape up this stunt.
He holds a shotgun shell in his
teeth. Mrs. Beegle holds the shot-
gun. Beegle tosses a target high,
his wife tosses the gun to him,
he whips the shell into the gun,
aims, and blasts the target before
it can hit the ground!
Another fast feat, an ace of co-
ordination of muscles, is the one
where he shoots a tossed target,
points the gun skyward to eject
an empty shell then turning his
gun downward again, blasts the
empty cartridge before it can
touch the ground. He does this
not only once, but five times, the
limit of the gun's magazine.
And with a .22-calibre rifle,

301st BOMBARDMENT SO. (D)
This past week has seen many
changes in the 301st Bomb Squa-
dron, not only in the personnel
but also in the attitude of the
men toward the Base and their
new environment. After two
weeks of adjustments and re-
adjusting, the squadron is getting
back "in the groove." From the
way the men are asking for
passes, it is evident that they like
the city of Tampa pretty well.
There are a lot of pretty girls in
Tampa. I believe the "Florida
Oranges" have the "Georgia
Peaches" beat a mile.

officer, has been assigned to this

Flying School, Williams Field,
Lt. William B. Haessig, arma-
ment officer, and Lt. William M.
Wood, medical officer, have de-
parted on a ten-day leave of ab-
sence for "rest and recreation."
Lt. Clifton L. Bray, flying of-
ficer, requested a three-day pass
for the purpose of getting mar-
ried. For some reason the request
couldn't be granted, but Lt. Bray
didn't let that 'stop him. He was
married on his day off. Congratu-

announced yesterday. Major Edge,
a Texan who ran a Venetian
Blind factory in conjunction with
his National Guard activities be-
fore the war, is a Senior Aircraft
Observer who held a Master
Sergeaht's rating prior to being
commissioned as 'a Reserve 2d
Lieutenant in 1925. Since then
he's climbed consistently. He was
called to active duty in June,
Enlisted men promotions for the
week were Cpl. Wayne John
Schwarz to Sgt; Cpl. Lou Stein
to Sgt; and Pvt. George R. Ma-.
chaca to Private First Class.
Personnel of the Wing will hold
a party on March 1, to celebrate
the birthdays of Sgt. Howard B.
Balch and Pfc. Ferdinand J. Ja-
cobsen, and to hail Cpl. Allen
Reid, selected for Army Adminis-
tration ,OCS, before his departure
for Gainesville, Fla., on March 11.
Prior to his departure for Gai-
nesville, Cpl. Reid plans to pay
several visits to Lake Wales,
home of Roger Babson,. of Bab-
son's Reports Inc. Cpl. Reid, a
former employee of Babson's, re-
cently visited his former boss and
reportedly is much impressed
with the manifestations of opul-
ence found therewith .. .Which
accounts for his decision to "sort

... and again and again."

from his furlough looking lean

he spent all of his money getting

I know it will be good news to
some of you that I am conducting
a rigid investigation of this so-
called 'Puppet Government' being
set up by a certain gent from
Brooklyn. I have a lot of brow-
beaten witnesses all lined up who
are willing to give names, dates
and places. There will be more
on this later.
: Speaking of names, dates and
places, how about this:~iittle bit
of jail bait called "Bodts"? She
seems to have dates to go places
with any nuiiber of names in our
organization. I wonder how'I can
get on her list?
In the "Aint What He Used To

one Pvt. Buster Wallace who ab-

his truck. All reverse driving is
done by one Pfc. Fields who has
been going backward all his life.

Sgt. Kneipp and Pfc. Tatum

Who was the soldier that went
to town on his day off at 8 a. m.
returned at 4 p.m., and thought
he had been out over night? We
are confused, too.
Early impressions of Florida:
(1) Maybe the Californians were
right. (2) God bless the raincoat,
(3) Did they say "sunshine" or
"some-shine"? (4) Big, isn't it?
The problem of getting between
places is one of the biggest prob-
lems facing us "rookies." The
ferry might solve this problem
if we only knew'where they were
going. Joe King boarded a ferry
the other day to go up to the PX.
He wasn't seen again for 48 hours.
