ATTENTION TO


DETAILS GETS


REAL RESULTS

In addition to the distinction
Major F. L. Ebersole, Jr., has
gained while serving as Adjutant,
Army Air Base, Drew Field, the
Major enjoys another worthwhile
distinction-that of being one of
the Field's best dressed officers.
Distinction in both of these
lines of endeavor, so we are told,
is attained only through close at-
tention to details.
Take Saturday morning, for in-
stance, when the officers of Drew
Field were formed on the hanger
apron for inspection by no less
a personage than the Inspector
General himself.
Creases were no unusual, sight
that morning. Quite a few of the
officers could be seen casting last
minute glances at their freshly
laundered cotton-khaki, faces re-
flecting a measure of satisfaction
over appearances for the inspect-
ion formation.
However, when Major Ebersole
appeared on the field, expressions
on the countenances of many of
the officers denoted amazement at
the razor-edge creases adorneing
the spotless trousers and shirt
worn by the Major that morning.
Every crease in place! Not a
wrinkle from the snug-fitting
shirt collar to the hem. of the
trouser legs, hanging just the right
distance above the top of the bril-,
liantly shined low quarter shoes!
Every soldier who has exper-
ienced the difficulty of keeping
cotton-khaki free of wrinkles for
any length of time realize the re-
markableness of this achievement.
We have it on good authority,
however, that the sartorial ele-
gance of the Major on the oc-
casion was achieved merely
through attention to details--such
details as dressing after breakfast,
and remaining more or less mo-
tionless in a standing position un-
til the inspection formation at
ten o'clock.
We are still wondering whether
the sigh of relief said to have
been heard 'as the Major entered
his office following the formation
was occasioned by the fact that
inspection was over, or by the fact
that, at long last, he was able
to enjoy the comforts of his of-
fice chair and cigarette.


Col. Asp Swears In Captain's


Son


Col. Melvin P. Asp, Commanding Officer at Drew, swears in Walter F. Joyce Jr., as an aviation

here at-Drew.


Medicos Do Their Stuff

Out Drew Field Way


The 503rd Medical Detachment
had treated many a dog face, but
it wasn't until a short time ago
that they ran into the real thing.
His name: Rover Dog, Army ser-
ial number 0000000%. His injury:
Hemaoma of right hind leg at
ankle joint, or a busted leg to
you guys.
Accustomed to handling any and
all emergencies without batting
an eye, the 503rd medicos went
right into action when one of their
men reported that one of Drew
Field's favorite dogs had been run
over by a truck. Rover was im-
mediately rushed to the dispens-
ary, treatment for shock was ad-
ministered and the extent of his
injuries was ascertained.
Not a ba-rk or a yip did good
soldier Rover emit when his brok-


Lieutenant Colonel Gimbel

Is Now Base Inspector


Lieutenant Colonel Gimbel this
week was named ,Drew Field Air
Base Inspector. Formerly a mem-
ber of the Army reserve, Colonel
Gimbal was called to active duty
June 15, 1941, and since then has .' .
been successively a member of the
staff of the Third Air Force and
the Third Interceptor Command,
and Commanding Officer of all
Drew Field signal units.
A veteran of the first World
War, Colonel Gimbel joined the k. A
Field Artillery in 1916. A member
of the R.O.T.C., he received his ....
commission as a Second Lieuten-
ant in 1918. After the Armistice
he remained in the Army reserve,
receiving repeated promotions un-
til he reached his present rank, --
Lieutenant Colonel.
Before returning to active duty
in 1941, Colonel Gimbel was Presi- .
dent of the Gimbel Brothers De-
partment stores in New York. His LIEUT. COL. GIMBEL
home is in Philadelphia. New Base Inspector


en leg was set and the splint ap-
plied. Then for two weeks he re-
ported for active duty around the
various mess halls in spite of the
fact that the medical report con-
fined him to quarters. On April
2' the splint was removed and
Rover 'is bounding about as spry
as ever.
The full medical report has been
filed away for reference by future
doctors faced with a like prob-
lem and reads 'as follows: Name
Rover Dog; ASN, 00000001/2; Grade,
Bow Wow 1st Class; Regiment,
Doghouse; Age 5 years; Race,
Brown; Nativity, Texas; Injury,
Hematoma of right hind leg at
ankle joint; Injury suffered in
line of duty while soldier was run-
ning across street; Splints admini-
stered and patient ordered con-
fined to quarters.

BILTMORE CAFETERIA
Men in Hq. & Hq. Squadron,
309th Air Base Group, refer to
their new mess hall as the "Bilt-
more Cafeteria". For good reason
too. They claim they are getting
the best chow in the whole Army.
Trie usual custom is for soldiers
c:* ripe about chow when they
ri'ie nothing else to bother them.
w\i hen an entire squadron starts
rai.n-ig about the good chow be-
an, :.erved then it MUST be good.
TaKe a bow, Mess Sergeant Mc-
cG:e you've earned it!

ORCHESTRA
Our orchestra is coming along
fine. The band even at this point
sijnds very promising. The ad last
week for sax players brought a
violin player (which we can also
use 1. The men we have now are
ve~y dependable and enthusiastic,
bur we need the encouragement
of more sax players. Rehearsals as
u:-ual every Monday and Thurs-
day evenings at 7:00 P.M. in the
Hangar.

HUGE YELLOW TRIPOD
In case you're wondering what
that huge yellow -tripod standing
in front of the guardhouse is for
we are here to make with some
inside dope. The device, painted
a lovely Easter egg yellow, may
play an important part in your life
if and when the Kraufs or Japan-
zies pay us a call, so bend an ear.
The apparatus is a warning de-
vice for gas attack. The operation
is very simple. All you do if you're
the nearest man to do it and you
smell gas, is take the long spike
furnished and beat upon the metal
flang lining with great gusto. You,
of course, should have your mask
properly adjusted before you start
beating, because the warning
should continue until everyone is
hep to what is going on. Then
when your tongue is hanging out
you'll know you've done your
duty and the day is saved.

Ammonia gas, containing nitro-
gen, is used to harden and streng-
then steel crankshafts for many
airplane engines.


WILL SALUTE


DREW APR. 18

The salute to Drew Field by
'Glenn Miller and his orchestra
has now been set for Saturday,
April 18, according to an an-
nouncement from Special Serv-
ices Officer.
The salute, originally scheduled
for April 4th was cancelled by
Miller as published in last week's
edition of the ECHOES.
The letter addressed to Special
Service Officer says in part, "Con-
ditions which forced cancellation
of the last two programs have
-been cleared up. Sorry that we
had to change the date of the
salute to Drew Field but please
notify the men at your commend
of this special salute to your Field
on Saturday, April 18, at which
time your most popular selection,
"I Don't Want To Walk Without
You, Baby," will be played."
Should the tune selected by men
at Drew be chosen as the most
popular tune of the week by the
general radio audience the Field
will be presented with a combina-
tion radio 'and phonograph con-
sole by the Miller orchestra.

Of Drew Field Soldiers


When you're down in the
dumps, when you have a prob-
lem that has you licked, when
you feel that you really need. a
friend-don't worry fellow-you've
got one right here on the field.
He's Chaplain Clark at the Base
chapel. Take your troubles to
Ihim. Tell him all about it. He's
on your side and you'll leave feel-
ing a lot better about the whole
thing.
The Chaplain is a pretty busy
officer but he'll always find time
to talk to you and help you in
any way he can. The Chaplain
conducts services throughout the
week and on Sundays. Frequently
Ihe receives invitations, which ha
always accepts, to preach in
churches in Tampa and vicinity.
He is also called upon to address
civic clubs, luncheons and many
other affairs off the post.
When he is called off the Field
his first thought is for the men
stationed at Drew. He arranges
introductions of soldiers and civil-
ians. He is responsible for many
iof the invitations we receive for
dinners with' families in Tampa.
Hs visits and gifts to you when
you've been slapped into the guard
house or when you're lying on your
back in the hospital are visible
proof that he never forgets his
men. The religious pictures shown
here at Drew come to us through
his efforts.
Naturally, his first duty is to
see that the men are morally and
spiritually fit. His thoughts, how-
ever, do not stop there. Always
on the 'alert for anything which
will help to make life easier and
a bit happier for his men, the
Chaplain is in direct contact with
persons interested in the welfare
of the armed forces.
The next time you feel that the
world is against you take a walk
up to see Chaplain Clark. Unload
your troubles, he's your friend and
he'll listen and advise. You'll sal-
ute him when you leave, but you'll
feel more like shaking his hand
and calling him 'buddy'.

Save Veteran

A former world war veteran
probably owes his life to the
prompt medical aid received from
men of the 553rd Signal Company
at Drew Field. The veteran, Earl
J. Martin, '209 N. Armenia Ave.,
Tampa, was stricken with a heart
attack early one morning of this
week while making a delivery to
a Base mess -hall.
Quick to see the stricken man's
need of medical attention Sergeant
Ostroff gathered Martin into his
arms and rushed him to the 553rd
dispensary. Through the efficiency
and alertness of Captain Mullins
and his staff the former veteran
was quickly restored.
Martin -expressed lhis apprecia-
tion to the officer and men in a
letter written to Col. Melvin P.
Asp, Commanding Officer at Drew.

Love In Bloom

"Orange blossoms and Romance"
might be the title of this little
saga, or perhaps "Cupid's Orange

rate there's a good story below the
surface of the following letter re-
ceived iby Private Kubin of Drew
Field:
"Private Kubin

Dear Private:
Some few days ago you gave
my daughter (who is at the jewel-
ry counter in Newberry's) $4.35
to ship a box of oranges to your
Mother. It seems that both you
and my daughter forgot to get
together on just who your Mother
is, and just what town in Penn-
sylvania she lives in. I have the

Our vote goes to Mr. Stofer for
his masterful 'stroke of irony, and
we. eagerly await further develop-
ments.
--Keep 'Em Flying-


Says the Wife?

This story can be attributed to
no particular camp. It's just been
going the rounds in Army circles.
A soldier stepped up, to his com-
manding officer and requested
leave to go home and help his
wife move into new quarters. The
captain responded that he was
very sorry, but he had just re-
ceived a letter from the soldier's
wife in which she said flatly she
didn't need him at home for the
moving. "She said you'd be more
of a bother than a help, so I
'guess you can't have the pass",
the captain concluded. The sol-
dier saluted and stepped forward
toward the door. Pausing there,
he .turned *and said: "Captain,
there are two fellows in this
company that handle the truth
very loosely. I am one of them.
You see, I'm not married."
---Keep 'Em Flying-
"Keep your eyes open."
"Why?"
"Folks'll think you're a damn
fool if you walk around with them
shut."

'Spectators didn't have to bi

pants at regulation levels.

Things we will always remember
department: The expression or
Hank Greenterg's face when hi

the sixth inning.

Wonder which outfit is missing
a G. I. broom? Umpires used the
article to sweep the plate clean

What became of the bleachers

Inside story of the swell game
pitched by Swindells: Freddie bet

'before he knew he was to pitch
If he had lost it would have been
roll-your-own-Freddie for the bal-
ance of 'the month.

The game would have been as
quiet as the inside of a tomb had
it not been for the rabid fans
from Drew.

MacDill had one very excited
fan.... he was the small colored
boy on top of the dugout.'...he
darn near fell off several times.

Drew, U.S.P.P. Game


Ends in Deadlock, 1-1

Behind the five hit pitching of
Brown and Epps, Drew and USPP
battled. to a 1-1 deadlock in the
second meeting of the two teams
on the USPP diamond. Drew won
the first game 4 to 1.
In the seventh inning the Drew-
men shoved across a run to tie
up the ball game after the Phos-
phate had scored a singleton in
the sixth.
Frachitty open the seventh with
a grounder to the shortstop who
threw wild at first and the run-
ner took second. Jones dhot a
single threw the center to score
Frachitty from second with the
tieing run.
Mike Ruggles was the big noise
for the Drewmen, pounding out
two bingles in three trips to the
plate. Swinney, Koumrian and
Jones each secured singles.
Southpaw Brown gave up three
hits in ;his five innings of Work
on the mound and did not allow
a run. Peyton Epps followed him
to the hillock and was touched
foS, two hits and a run. Both
pitchers kept the hits well scat-
tered and did a fine job on the
mound.
The infield and outfield played
fine defensive ball with several
nice stops.

MUM'S THE WORD HERE
The Medical Detachment of the
553rd spanked their brother medi-
cos of the 503rd in a volley ball
game this week.
Using their second teams as their
first string was in school, the 553rd
trounced their opponents so bad
that Captain Mullan remarked
that we must make certain that
we get the scores in the Echoes-
But Master Sergeant Horton of
the 503rd had a different idea
and quoting the sergeant, "I rather
keep them to myself."
We wonder if the sergeant was
trying to censor' our news.

FIRST LOSS IS TO

S. & F. GROCERY 6-3

Despite the 10 strike-out hurl-
ing of three Drew pitchers the
S. & F. Grocery nine of Tampa
managed to top the local club
Friday, 6 to 3. The game was play-
ed on the McFarland diamond.
Costly errors and too many men
left on bases were the key factors
in the Drewmen's defeat. Each
team garnered six hits, but the
Grocery team capitalized on
bunched Mdows to score their men.
McNulty banged out two hits
for the Drew nine with Burch,
Jones, Swinney and Koumrian
each getting singles.

visitors. The opening feature of
the get-together was a dance. At,
the start of the function all the'
girls took off one of their shoes,
threw the loose footwear into a
stack in the middle of 4he dance
floor. Then the men were given
the go-ahead signal rand rushed
out to grab one shoe apiece. Each

was the girl whose foot fit the
