Drew Soldiers Help

Make Navy Relief

Ball Huge Success

They danced, they sang, they
made the welkin ring-more than
700 soldiers, sailors and civilians
-at a dance and entertainment
held at the Tampa Terrace Hotel
for the benefit of Navy Relief on
Saturday, May 9. This affair,
sponsored by Colonel Gimbel, Spe-
cial Services Oficer, Drew Field,
was one occasion when "the Army
was the clover for the Navy which
takes us over."
The affair was not only well at-
tended, but the well-balanced pro-
gram was keenly received by those
present. Private O. Z. Whitehead,
of the Drew Field special services
office, was master of ceremonies,
and his duties were shared by an
associate, Mr. Howells.
The program included songs
rendered very well by Private
John Hessions of the 565th Signal
Regiment, ragtime tunes ripped
off by banjoist Private Thomas
Beckett, several solos by operatic
Private Theophilus Stevens, and a
stirring monologue called "Vale-
dictory" by Private Whitehead.


to the limits, and soldiers stood
in deep ranks on all sides of the
canopy, wearing red and white
flowers as symbols of a living or
deceased mother. Many ranking
officers were also present at the
services.
Chaplain Amos L. Boren de-
livered the invocation and led the
singing of the hymn, "Faith of
Our Fathers," the congregation
substituting the word "Mother"
wherever "Father" appears in the
text.
Col. Melvin B. Asp, Base Com-
manding Officer, made the wel-
coming speech to the mothers.
"This Mother's Day," he began,
"is a great day for soldiers, and
particularly for those on the eve
of their departure for overseas
duty." He pointed out the im-
portant role that mothers are
playing in the present conflict,
and concluded by telling the
mothers that "your boy is the
healthiest, best-fed and best-
cared-for soldier in the best army
in the world."
A highlight of the services was
the sermon preached by Chaplain
Clark who used as his text, "She

Skating Act

Scores Hit

Before an overflow crowd of
2,000 soldiers, squeezed tightly
together in the Drew Field out-
door boxing arena, Anz' famous
skating act headed a well-balanc-
ed variety show on Monday,
May 11th.
Captain E. W. DeForest, Base
Chemical Warfare Officer, was
master of ceremonies. Other per-
formers on the program included
Al Evans, comedian, famous head-
liner of yesterday; Private John
Hessions, of the 553rd Signal
Regiment, singer; Corp. John Du-
chain, guitarist and singer; and

Mail-Away Edition

To Folks At Home

Most of you men here at Drew
come from homes that are a far
cry from sunny Florida shores. In
this edition of the ECHOES we
have tried to print news features
of Tampa and vicinity that will
give the folks back home an idea
of the country in which you are
stationed.
After you have read the edition
why not wrap it up and mail it
home? Your people will probably
appreciate it. They are interested
in you and where you are so let
the ECHOES help you tell them
about Florida.

Cooperation Needed To Maintain

Training Schedule


The closing from Saturday noon
until Monday morning of grbcer-
ies, hardware, and general stores
which do .a wholesale business
often works a hardship on U. S.
Army air fields and camps in the
area served by those establish-
ments where thousands of men are
in training and where emergency
needs arising daily must be sup-
plied, according to Col. Melvin B.
Asp, commanding officer, Army
Air Base, Drew Field.
"The U. S. Army recognizes the
fact that 'there must be periods
of relaxation," stated Col. Asp.
"In every military camp," he con-
tinued, "officers are assigned to
the particular problem of provid-
ing all possible recreation for sol-
diers, even when these soldiers
are engaged in their grim duties
in combat zones.


"However," continued Col. Asp,
"the War Department, realizing
the seriousness of the situation
confronting our Nation, has or-
dered a seven-day week training
schedule. In keeping with this
policy, personnel of Drew Field
engages every day, including
Saturday and Sunday, in long
hours of training activities.
The Colonel, who spends long
hours at his desk in the Drew
Field headquarters, and who is,
himself, an indefatigable worker,
referred to the remarks of Lieut.
Gen. Brehon Somervell, chief of
the supply service of the Army,
on a recent visit to the Field, in
the following words: "Gen. Somer-
vell stated that this war 'isn't

Slams Nazis

In Lecture


Konrad Bercovici, noted writer
and lecturer, spoke in the big As-
sembly tent north of the Base
Headquarters before the entire
Base enlisted personnel. A num-
ber of ranking officers were also
present. Mr. Bercovici repeated
his lecture before two groups,
divided because of the limitation
of space. The men stood in the
open space facing the tent and
listened earnestly to the well-in-
formed lecturer, who is the author
of more than forty books, includ-
ing many novels, travel books and
commentaries on world events.
Mr. Bercovici, a sturdy looking
man in his early sixties, built up
a convincing case against the pre-
sent Nazi regime. About fourteen
years ago he was sent by his
publisher to Germany. His pri-
mary purpose was to interview
the Nazi leaders and find out what
made them tick .
As a result of the interviews
and his travels through Germany
he came to the conclusion that the
Nazi leaders could not be disso-
ciated from the German people,
but were a true reflection of the
German state of mind. In his ana-
lysis of the Nazi chieftains he
passed over Hitler on the pre-
sumption that his listeners were
Well aware of the type of mons-
trous degenerate that he is.
Bercovici's chief concern was
with the four men whom he con-
siders Hitler's peers: namely,
Goering, Rosenberg, Goebbels and
Hess. Goering, he pointed out, be-
longs to the Junker class. A Prus-
sian flyer who was injured se-

BULL-oney


By Pvt. Harold Ovis
Ah shame, Oh ignoble and in-
glorious defeat. After a trying and
tiring farce of softball, the Hq &
Hq Sqdrn allowed the 30 Trans-
port Sqdrn. to garner 2 runs so
that they might go, home happy.
Hq & Hq got tired of hitting and
running so they only settled for
38 runs. It gets so discouraging
sometimes to just hit and run,
with no one around to put you out
occasionally. Better luck next
time, 30 Transports.

This Sqdrn is going to get a
complaint shortly about Pvt. Po-
weirza, a first class Liggett Liz-
ard. Poweirza has been haunting
the soft drink emporium of said
Liggett's to keep his eye on his
girl friend who works there. The
manager there thinks Poweirza is
a spy from the, home office and
keeps quiet about it, but there'll
come a day.

Pvt. Healey of Hq & Hq Sqdrn.
Healey, a re-enlisted man, is 44,
but asks no favors from the
younger men. He does all the hik-
ing and drilling the younger men
do and always tries to encourage
the babes of the outfit to further
endeavors.

Shouldn't happen to a dog, the
things happening to Pvt. Levin of
the 30 Transports. That little man
is always trying to argue against
given facts and winds up putting
his foot in that cavity in his face.
Won't you ever learn, little man.
By the way, Levin is a N. Y.
justice of the peace.

Does that cavity in Pvt. Fitz-
patrick's face belong to him or is
he trying to spit it out. He shoots
it off so much lately, it seems as if
he is trying to get rid of it.

Pvt. Garand of Hq & Hq prides
himself on the fact that he can
imitate a banjo. We're wondering
if that's all that keeps him to-
gether, a few strings.

Oo-oo-oo-oo, those groans ema-
nating from the bruised lips of
Pvt. Poweirza were caused by
little Pvt. Nelson. The boys put
the gloves on the other night with
Poweirza thinking he had an easy
touch. His easy touch hit him with
every thing but the tent poles, and
the only reason he didn't use
them were his fists were big
enough. Look out Poweirza, here
comes NELSON.

How come Pvt. Jacoby doesn't
pay any rent on that apartment in
town? What is he concealing from
his buddies?

Hard Luck

Hits 327th


On May 1st Private David Poe,
a guard stationed at the East
Gate, pushed off for Chattanooga.
But it was not with any degree of
pleasure that Poe, attached to the
327th Maeriel Squadron, hopped
on the Chattanooga Cho-Choo,
homeward bound.
Granted an emergency furlough
after receiving a Itelegram notify-
ing him that his 19-year old bro-
ther had sustained serious in-
juries in an automobile accident,
Poe was shaken badly by the news.
His brother's injuries, which were
critical enough to hospitalize him,
included the loss of an eye.
Poe's 'brother was on the eve of
joining the Navy, and before be-
coming one of Uncle Sam's sailor
boys he had decided to do his
favorite brother David a good
service by bringing his automo-
bile to him for his use at Drew
Field.
It is unfortunate that his good
intentions miscarried, and mem-
bers of the 327th extend their
sympathies to Poe en masse, sin-
cerely hopeful that his brother
recovers from his other injuries.


Another member of the 327th,
Private Benjamin Weinraub, one
of the new recruits from Balti-
more, lost his favorite uncle a
week ago. It was with deep sor-
row that Private Weinraub, an in-
surance company official in civi-
lian life, received this news.

The 501st Plotting Company
lost two men from the single
ranks with Sergeant Osborne and
Corporal Winston getting married
on their furlough.
Sgt. Osborne lives in Great
Falls, Montana, and his bride
comes from Natchitoches, La.
Corp. Winston lives in Alabama
and his bride also comes from
good old Alabam'.
Smooth sailing, boys.

Gas Rationing

Hits Drew Field

In keeping with the new gas
rationing regulations, Colonel Mel-
vin B. Asp, Commanding Officer
at Drew Field, ordered the use of
official vehicles cut to a minimum.
The number of trucks in convoys
will be decreased by virtue of an
increase in the number of men al-
lotted to trucks.
Officers already are doubling up
on their driving to and from work,
rotating the use of their vehicles.
The speed of Army cars had pre-
viously been reduced to a maxi-
mum of 35 miles.
The rationing program makes
no distinction between Army per-
sonnel who use their own cars and
civilians.

Consider the Poor Company Clerk
The only bright spot in his life
in the seat of his pants.

The two Louisiana twins are

Sgt. Fred Swindells pitched the
Drew Interceptors to a 14 to 0
win over the Manatee Craters at
Bradenton last Saturday. Swin-
dells limited the Craters to three
hits.
Leading the slugging parade for
the Interceptors were Ruggles
with two for four, with one going
through for a double. Bakeza,
Birch and Todd secured two hits
apiece.
The Interceptors started the .run
parade early by picking up three
in the first inning. McNulty
opened the 1st stanza by walking
and taking 2nd on a pass ball.
Ruggles whiffed out. Todd hit a
sharp single to center to score
McNulty and moved on to second
on the throw in. Boone flew out
to left. Bekeza shot a one-timer
to right to score the second run
of the inning and went to second
on an error by the centerfielder.
Birch produced the third hit of
the frame to score Bekeza, Meyer
ending the inning by flying'out to
the shortstop.
The Manatee Craters produced
their three hits in third, sixth and
seventh innings. Swindells was
poison to the Craters all afternoon
in limiting the losers to three
bingles.
Scoring in every inning but the
seventh, the interceptors picked
up three runs in the first, one in
the second,.three in the third, two
in the fourth, three in the fifth
and two in the sixth.

Lakeland Wins

Tough Game, 2-1

Lefty Brown threw a four-
hitter at the Food Machinery nine
of Lakeland to lose a heart-
breaker, 2 to 1, in a West Coast
League game Sunday. Two costly
errors by the Interceptors along
with two hits in the sixth inning
for two runs were good enough
to win the game.
Drew shoved across their only
tally in the eighth inning on a
double, base on balls and a
grounder. Swinney, first man up
in the inning, drew a base on
balls. Brown slapped a hard dou-
ble to left-center to move the run-
ner around to third. McNulty hit
to the infield to score Swinney
from third with Brown taking
third. Steib struck out and Todd
hoisted to the left fielder to end
the uprising.
Three of the Interceptors hits
were good for extra bases. Birch,
Meyer and Brown collecting two-
base blows from the offering of
Norris. Boone secured a single
in the second frame for the fourth
hit of the day for the Drewmen.
Todd made a long running
catch into left-center in the sev-
enth inning to pull down a ball
hit deep in this territory. Second
baseman Swinney went far to his
right in the second inning to make
a beautiful pick-up of a grounder.
and get his man at first by a step.
Brown pitched a beautiful game
for the Interceptors but the ill
fate of luck was against him. He
limited the Food Machinery team
to four hits, all singles and collec-
ted a double for his part.

blessed ." He put the congrega-
tion in good humor with quips
about soldiers.
"Training camps are filled with
the flower of the youth of our
land," he said. "The American
heritage of justice and freedom is
in good hands. Their mothers
will be proud of them when they
return."
After benediction, mothers
paired off with soldiers and went
together to the various mess halls
in pairs of fifteens. At the mess
halls they were fed a nourishing,
well-prepared meal, including
fried chicken, ice cream and pine-
apple pie.
Highlights of the ceremonies
for Catholic servicemen included
a Solemn High Mass at 9 a. m. at
Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
Among the column of 2,000 sol-
diers nearly two blocks long, lined
four abreast, who marched to the
church were 1,100 Drew Field
men who journeyed to Tampa in a
convoy of 46 trucks. After parad-
ing downtown they crowded into
the Sacred Heart church.

the middle of one of the most
scenic areas in the country. Auto-
mobile, rail and air travelers-seem
to like the idea of making Tampa
their home away from home while
visiting the world-famous attrac-
tions adjacent to Tampa Bay from
Silver Springs to the north and
Fort Myers to the south.
Tampa is a city of great charm
in addition to its interesting in-
dustrial life. The city fathers are
continuing their beautifying cam-
paign which had as its 1939 high-
light the completion of the out-
standing Bayshore Drive. Tampa
has a permanent population of
well over 100,000 and this num-
ber is being added to every month.
In July of 1941, there were 177
more families taking up perma-
nent homes above the number
during the corresponding period
in 1940.


Not "What A Mess"

Why are meals in the Army
known by so forbidding a term as
"mess"? Well, one explanation
is the word "mess" is simply the
English form of the highly re-
spectable French word "mets,"
m-e-t-s, pronounced "meh," which
placed on the table; all the food
served at a meal."

Now the famous Sulphur

sport of queens, which attracts
thousands of Floridians and
visitors.


their purchasing power is to move
out of the high cost areas and set-
tle down in such civic-proud cities
as Tampa where living conditions
are far from exorbitant.
"People who are able to settle
permanently in Tampa form a
class that provide a year-round
benefit to our city and Hills-
borough County. In addition to
the inflation angle, we have the
world's best climate ahd are the
heart of the lower west coast of
Florida. Tampa 'nestles on the
warm Gulf coast with an average
yearly temperature of 71.8 de-
grees, warm in winter and cool in
summer. For diversion we have
golf, tennis, shuffleboard, horse-
back riding, fresh water and deep
sea fishing, skeet ,shooting, hunt-
ing, sailing, boating, dog racing,,
and swimming."
Among the famous annual
events taking place in Tampa and
Hillsborough County is the world-
renowned Gasparilla Carnival in
February which is the climax of
the Florida Fair. Last year three
quarters of a million visitors at-
tended these festivities ,the larg-
est mid-winter fair held in North
America. Then there are the ga-
therihg of the Tin Can Tourists,
the Outdoor Horse Show, La Ver-
bena del Tabaco (Latin Cigar Fes-
tival), the National Midwinter
Pistol Tournament, the Tampa
Tribune Tarpon Tournament and
the Annual Dixie Tennis Tourna-
ment. Many other events are
planned, details of which will be
announced later.
Included in Tampa's imposing
list of chief industries are citrus
fruit, ship building, phosphate
mining, cigar manufacturing and
cement manufacturing. Hillsbo-
rough County, rich in agricultural
products and significant for its
Strawberry Festival in March, is
America's winter market. Tampa
is the greatest citrus canning area
in the world, during the past year
producing more than 316,000 cans
of citrus fruit, 380,000,000 hand
made and machine made cigars
and over a million and one hIalf
tons of phosphate.
Playing its part in the defense
program, Tampa is training men
and building ships. MacDill Field,
completed at a cost of approxi-
mately $25,000,000, quarters
about 6,000 men and officers.
Tampa's shipyards employing.
about 2,000 employees are work-
ing night and day under a $16,-
000,000 Government contract.
Tampa is also the home of the
Third Air Force, United States
Army Air Corps, the Third Wing
Bombardment squad, and the
Third Wing Interceptor Com-
mand.
Lying south of Ocala, which is
100 miles distant, there is found
more than two thirds of the popu-
lation of Florida. Due to this
fact and the geographical loca-
tion of Tampa, it is considered by
business in general as the finest
distributing center in the State
and for this reason has developed
many warehouses and branch est-
ablishments serving this rich
trade area. During the past 12
months Tampa has been cited by
Forbes Magazine ten times as one
of the best locations in the United
States for sales, collections, and
business promotion.
So, for the retired pensioner,
Tampa and Hillsborough County
have a great deal to offer for play,
restful relaxation and for those
who still have a desire to interest

40 MUNICIPALLY OWNF
OFFER REST, SPORTS, N/

A system of some 40 municipally
owned parks, covering more than
300 acres in St. Petersburg, offers
rest and recreation to young and
old.

The oldest park is Williams
Park, which covers an entire city
block. Shaded by large oaks, it is
situated at First Avenue and 4th
Street North,- opposite the Post
Office. In the center is a fountain.
There is a band shell at the north
end. Green benches accommodate
approximately 5000 persons.
Park Cost $300,000

Bartlett Park, at Fourth Street
South between Eighteenth and
Twenty-second Avenues, recently
was built at a cost of about $300,-
000. Located there are the St.

acts, substantiated by the U.S.
weather Bureau, prove this state-
lent. 'The highest temperature
ever recorded was 97 degrees in
_32, and the lowest, 28, was re-
corded once in 1917 and once in

,s 52 inches, most of which comes
m the summer in periodic showers
-.hich never last more than five or
ten minutes. These showers cool
the hot summer sun and make the
climate ideal at all times.
The old rumor about Gulf Hurri-
canes is largely dispelled by the
fact that New York, Chicago and
other northern cities have re-

Look at a map of Florida. No-

just about halfway down the coast,
and St. Petersburg on the tip of
the peninsula is three-quarters sur-
rounded by water. The Gulf

ibbean.
Tampa Bay is deep, retaining the
heat of the sun far into the winter.
These large bodies of water help
to temper the climate of St. Peters-

system, keeping it warm in winter
and cool in summer.

There are still a few people who
have never seen oranges and

this sight also always thrills the
habitual Florida visitor. In the
Tampa area is grove after grove
of orange and grapefruit trees.
About 20 years ago a few far-see-
ing people began to put grapefruit
in cans and started an industry
which is one of the largest in the
United States.

YBOR CITY
ATTRACTS VISITORS

Most visitors to Tampa, Florida,
are well aware of the marvelous
restaurants in Ybor City, the Span-
ish section of the city; but few
know that there are several Latin
Clubs, ,each of which has a tre-
mendous membership.
These Clubs have their own
buildings which are equipped with
dance floors, bars, libraries, read-
ing rooms, gymnasiums, and out-
side ratios for entertainments.
The Centro Espanol is the oldest
Latin Club in Tampa. It was or-
ganized in 1891 .by a few Spanish
settlers who pooled their resources
for mutual benefit and today 6,000
Tampans are afforded medical
care, hospitalization, and recrea-
tion through this Club. The Cen-
tro Espanol also has a beautiful
hospital overlooking Tampa Bay on
Bayshore Boulvard. The Centro's
facilities are now valued at $400,-
000, all made possible through vol-
untary effort of its members who
consider the Club a necessity of

Centro Austuriano, like all Latin
Clubs, closely links Tampa with
Latin America. The membership
of Centro Asturiano is 8,000 and is
an outgrowth of the famed Centro
Asturiano of Havana, Cuba. One
of the most interesting features of
this great society is its library
which has many extremely rare
books dating back to the 17th cen-
tury. Five big dances comprise the
principal social functions of the
Club during the year. They are
the New Year's Eve dance, the
Masquerade Ball in February, the
Flower Dance and' Dinner Dance in
May, and the Social Dance in Sept-
ember. Other dances attended oy
members and tourists are held
about every two weeks.
Centro members have offered to
the government the use of all its
property, including the hospital,
for the duration of the emergency.

209 DIFFERENT BIRDS
IN TAMPA AREA

It is surprising how many tour-
ists in Tampa are interested in
birds. A visitor from the Middle
West said yesterday that he had
counted 209 different birds in the
Tampa area.
The fastest bird noted was the
bluewing teal. This small bird can
speed' through the air at 70 miles
an hour. The white egret, reaching
a height of five feet, has the long-
est neck. The funniest bird is the
bluejay, which chatters and scolds
all day long and makes more noise
than all the other birds put to-
gether. The smallest two birds are
the humming bird and the bluegray
gnat-catcher. The kingbird, or "bee
martin," is the bravest. Spectators
have seen the kingbird chase
hawks seven or eight times
as large as they are. The hawks
know better than to fight the king-
bird which is about the size of a
mocking bird.
Most of these birds are in Hills-
borough State Park, a few miles
from Tampa. Hundred of visitors

The now famed P-39 Bell Airacobra is the first plane in the world to ever
carry a cannon in its snout. This purely American innovation has given our

Cross is awarded to person-t whyo,

the Army of the United StLtes,
distinguished themselves by ex-
traordinary heroism in connec-
tion with military operations
against an armed enemy. This
decoration was instituted by exec:
utive order in January, 1918, and
confirmed by Congress July 9,
1918.
It is a cross of bronze with an
eagle in the center and a scroll
below the eagle bearing the in-
r.:ription "For Valor." On the
reverse is space for the recipient's
name. The cross is suspended by a
ring from a watered-silk ribbon,
composed of a band of red, white,
blue, white, and red. (Blue, an
inch in width, predominates.)

THE CAMERA EYE



In the eyes of the average civ-
ilian the camera is nothing more
than an instrument used to snap
the "family portrait" or record pic-
turally events in the making.
To the soldier it has a different,
more mlinilus meaning-the differ-
ence between life and death.
The fate of thousands of men is
determined by the effectiveness ol
the multi-lensed eye, which is cap-
able of picking out camouflage in-
visible to the human eye. And
what's morei record it permanently
for others to see and study, therr-
by eliminating the possibility of
human errer.
Aerial photography was first used
effectively in Word War 1. With
this new. weapon ordinary camou-
flage was rendered practically use-
less. This brought about radical
changes in camouflage technique.
To counteract the improvement in
camouflage color photography was
introduced in aerial work.


CONGRESSIONAL
MEDAL OF HONOR
This, the highest decoration
awarded by the U. S. Govern-
ment, can be given to any officer
or enlisted man of the United
States Army who shall "in action
involving actual conflict with an
enemy distinguish himself con-
spicuously. by his gallantry and
intrepedity at the risk of his life,
above and beyond the call to
duty." It was first authorized by
act of Congress in 1862, and pre-
sented "in the name of Con-
gress"; hence the frequent allu.
sion to it as the "Congressional
Medal."
The present design was adopted
in 1904. A bronze five-pointed
star, surrounded by a laurel
wreath in green enamel, sus-
pended by two links from a
bronze bar bearing the inscription
"Valor," and surmounted by an
eagle. In the center of the star
is the head of Minerva surrounded
by the inscription "United States
of America." Each ray of the
star bears an oak leaf in green
enamel. On the reverse of the
medal is engraved the name of the
recipient. It may be worn with
a neck band. The ribbon is of
light blue watered silk. Midway


between the neckoand and on the
ribbon supporting the medal are_
13 white stars arranged in'the
form )f a triple chevron.

well, Mass., and the Army's first
jumping chaplain.
Chaplain Hall is a quiet, husky
young man inclined to regard his
present assignment as the happy
working of fate. When he was
first assigned to Benning, there
was no regulation requiring chap-
lains to jump. Chaplain Hall soon
fixed that. After a week of talk-
ing to the men 'he applied for
permission to take the gruelling


five-week training course. He
found it rough going. It had been
more than ten years since Chap-
lain Hall was captain of Brown
University swimming team and a
member of the All-American
swimmers, and life in the rectory
had not prepared him for the en-
thusiastic body-bending a para-
chutist must perform in training.
Today, as a qualified parachut-
ist, he looks forward to each jump
with zest. He also speaks with
modest satisfaction of the men's
reaction to his jumping. "It in-
creased attendance at church,"
he says.

door sports, games and amusements are here for your enjoyment the
year round.


SUNSHINE COMMUNITY
OFFERS NUMEROUS
OUTDOOR GAMES

St Petersburg likes to play! The
majority of its winter populace are
sports enthusiasts and an abund-
ance of convenient facilities for
recreation have made the city fa-
mous. Mirror Lake Park is probab-
ly the most noted sports center of
its-kind-in the world. Within four
.blocks of the heart of the city, this
rrecntion area is easily accessible.
Shuffleboard:---St. Petersburg
Shuffleboard Club, largest in the
world, is located at Mirror Lake
Park with more than 103 courts for
day or night play. Many national
and international championship
tournaments are held here. At
Sunshine Pleasure Club there are
30 courts and at Bartlett Park, 22.
Roque: St. Petersburg Roque
Club is host to many national
championship games played on
both open and indoor courts
which are plentiful, with 8 open
lanes and 4 covered lanes at Mir-
ror Lake Park.
Lawn Bowling: Brought to St.
Petersburg by Canadian visitors,
Lawn Bowling is now a favorite
sport and the largest and finest
rinks in the South have been pro-
vided for the local club. National
tournaments and competition for
international honors have been
held. There are 21 men's lanes
and 6 ladies' lanes at Mirror Lake.
Ten Pin Bowling has grown in
popularity with both men and w(.
men players and there are numer-
ous kegler leagues here.
Tennis: St. Petersburg Tenris
club has its home at Bartlett Park
with 10 clay courts suitable for darY
or night play. Some of the nation's
top ranking amateurs play here
during the season.
Horseshoe Pitching: Facilities

first tourist pastimes, include a
grandstand and 11 lanes at Water-
front Park No. 1.
Horseback Riding: St. .Peters-
burg Riding Club, open both to lo-
cal and visiting riders, meets at
the various stables the first
Wednesday of each month.

OUTDOOR BRIDGE

Bridge, the national indoor sport,
is also an outdoor game here.
Bridge players from all states and
Canada pass away many hours en-
joying this pastime.
Both social games and duplicate
games requiring high skill are


played at various clubs, hotels,
lodges and the Tourist Center.
The St. Petersburg Bridge
League' is a member of the Amer-
ican Contract Bridge League and
it allows master points. Non-bridge
players are entertained by the pop-
ular penuchle bingo, 500 and other
card games.



Nine Movies

In St. Pete

There are nine motion picture
theaters in St. Petersburg. The
latest productions may be seen at
the downtown theaters, and sec-
ond showings are made at reduced
prices at some of the smaller
houses.
They are the Florida, La Plaza,
Roxy, Cameo, Ninth Street, Capi-
tal, the Playhouse, Park and the
newest theater in town, the Drive-
In.

ST. PETE WATER

St. Petersburg's supply of water
is one of the purest, softest and
most palatable in the state.
Through large sealed pipes it
come from the Cosme- Owessa
watershed, one of the largest un-
derground fountains in Florida,
which is thirty miles northeast of
the city. It is forced into the city
mains by large, electrically driven
pumps which are capable of de-
livering twenty million gallons a
day.

GANDY BRIDGE

The Candy Bridge, a seven-mile
structure of concrete and steel,
spans Tampa Bay to connect St.
Petersburg and Tampa. It shortens
the automobile route between the
two cities by 25 miles. The ap-
proaches on either side were built
on land dredged out of the bay and
are lined with Australian pine trees
set out on either side of the road.

MANY AMUSEMENTS
OFFERED VISITORS

From morning until night recre-
ational activities are daily enjoyed
by visitors and Tampans alike.
People are playing tennis, golf, and
fishing, and everyone seems to be
enjoying themselves in this area
which is one of the least affected
by war.
Dances, card parties, shuffle-
board tournaments, and basketball
games are, and will be, staged at
the recreation center throughout
the spring and summer.
Because of its three great air
fields, Tampa is host. to parents
and relatives of the soldiers who
have been sent here from all sec-
tions of the United States.
The Tampa Chamber of Com-
merce is backing a plan to have
regular bus trips between Tampa
and near-by beaches so as to con-
serve civilians' tires.
Year-round mild weather is one
of the chief factors that makes
Tampa the "year-round city" for
economical and comfortable living.
Because of the city's comparative
nearness to the equator, winter
days here are longer than in sec-
tions farther north and summer
days are shorter. While hosts of
tourists follow the sun to Tampa
for winter comfort, many spring
and summer visitors are learning
that comfortable nights, cool-
ing sea breezes, and afternoon air,
as well as conditioning showers
make vacations here very enjoy-
able. Unlike many northern cities
that have frequent summertime
readings of more than 100, the
highest temperature ever exper-
ienced by Tampa was 97.

Tarpon Tournament Underway


The tenth annual Tribune Tar-
pon Tournament is now under way
and will continue through Aug. 31.
Officials expect a record field
with competition inceasi ng
throughout the summer. The first
school of tarpon has been sighted
in Tampa Bay and anglers from all
over Florida are planning to. try
their luck and ability to win this
famous Tournament.
The winner last year was Robert
Lassing of St. Petersburg who
nabbed a 160 pound tarpon. In
second place was Miss Ruth Steph-
ens of Punta Gorda and her 159
pound tarpon. Any amateur angler
is eligible. Professionals are barred
from the Tournament. Tarpon must
be landed in Florida West Coast
waters and by rod and reel. Com-
petitors must land their tarpon un-
aided and the fish must be weighed
and its weight attested by a Tour-
nament official, or public notary,
or by three reliable witnesses.
No angler must possess or kill
more than two tarpon in one day.
The Tribune Tournament is not
held in competition with any other
Tournament and entry in it does
not bar the fisherman from win-
ning a prize in any other contest.

public. His gardens have proved
so popular that every year he is
planting additional flowers and
making the estate more beautiful.
Although many thousands of trees
and plants from all over the Unit-
ed States have been planted there,
none of the natural charm of sub-
tropical Florida has been lost in
the masterful landscaping.
Approximately 15,000 azaleas,
many of them more than half a
century old, waxy camellias, snowy
gardenias by the thousands, great
beds of spring flowers, rose gar-
dens, magnolias, holly, dogwood,
and orchid trees are here for the
visitor to see and rave over.
The electric boats take the tour-
ists along a mystic river of floe _sr,-
and through a typical Florida cy-
press swamp. From singing bird
houses the music of the old mas-
ters follows the visitor softly
through the gardens.

RECREATION IS A

NECESSITY


Florida will be the training
ground for civilian population from
nlow on according to Tampa Cham-
ber of Commerce officials who be-
lieve that due to the proximity of
the state to all sections of the
country more and more people will
spend from one week to a mon.h
in the "land of sunshine."

People can work so hard that
there is a limit to everyone's en-
durance and the Tampa area at-
iords a splendid retreat for thor.e
seeking rest, relaxation, and play.
This Old World city is noted for
it facilities for sport. The Davis
Islands tennis club, operated by
the city of Tampa, has some of the
finest courts in the South, while
Tampa's nine golf courses are not-
ed for their beautiful surroundings
and sporty play. Sulphur Springs
swimming pool, beautiful bridle
paths, sail-boating and shuffleboard
will keep people in trim for the
defense program.

Tampa is an economical place to
spend one's vacation. It is also
the hub of an area reaching from
Silver Springs on the north to Fort
Myers on the south. The splendid
beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are
also but a few minutes away from
Tampa. Spanish restaurants and
other cafes offer appetizing food
at reasonable prices.

Tampa is very optimistic about
the part-it is playing in helping
the nation maintain a sober mien
during the present wartime days.
The focal point for recreation of
Tampa visitors is an attractive
club house on the bank of the Hills-
borough River. This is the tourist
center in Plant Park where thou-
sands of visitors gather each year
to play games, pass the time of
day, dance, have picnics and
parties.
The very modern shuffleboard
club with more than 2,500 mem-
bers, holds tournaments each week
and keeps competition alive among
the expert and less expert guests
of Tampa from all parts of the
United States.

(Courtesy of R. E. McCarthy Adv. Agency)
Dupree Gardens, Blossom Center of Florida, is a magnificent 900
acre estate, a few miles North of Tampa on L. S. No. 41. The electric
boats take tourists along a mystic river of beautiful flowers and
trough a typical cypress swamp.


LEARN SPANISH FREE
What will probably prove to be
one of the greatest drawing cards
for Tampa this fall and winter are
the free Spanish classes for tour-
ists. These classes, under the di-
rection of competent teachers are
now under way and any tourist
can have an opportunity to learn
conversational Spanish without
charge. At the present time the
classes are being held at the Semi-
nole Garden Center every Thurs-
day evening, sponsored by the
Tampa branch of the Pan Ameri-
can League. Later on the Tampa
Chamber of Commerce will also
offer free classes in Spanish.
Travelers from the North who are
attending these classes all agree
that Spanish is a language worth
knowing. This great interest in
the language..is possibly due to
America's friendship for our good
neighbors in Latin America.

At the National Convention in
Chicago three Florida photogra-
phers were chosen to give demon-
strations because of their out-
standing accomplishment.
Newspapers and national maga-
zines are crying for more pictures
and Florida material is extremely
popular.
In view of this fact the Flor-
ida Photographers Association
plans to stage a contest in Tampa
next month as a feature of their
tenth annual convention for the
selection of Florida's most photo-
genic girl. Chambers of Com-
merce throughout the state have


been asked to aid by sending con- ANYTIME IS
testants and it is expected that FISHING TIME
the utmost in charming girls will


participate.
The state's outstanding artists
and photographers will pose them
and take plenty of pictures, and
news agencies and picture serv-
ices are looking forward to se-
curing. a wealth of material as a
result.
The convention is scheduled for
June 4-5 in Tampa. A jury of
five foremost Florida photogra-
phers will select the winners.
Contestants will be garbed in
sports clothes and evening wear.
A complete and comprehensive
program has been arranged with
a special conference for news
photographers, Burgert said.

Tampa has fishing as one of its
greatest attractions. Black bass
are to be caught throughout the
year except during the closed sea-
son from March 15 through May
19. Perch can be caught at any
time, while tarpon are at their
best from May through August.
The biggest mackerel runs are
in the spring and fall, while the
sporty kingfish follow the mack-
erel runs, usually arriving about
two weeks after the mackerel
have been reported.
Cool weather is best for chan-
nel bass or red fish, but they are
caught throughout the year. Am-
berjack strike best in the winter
and spring, usually some distance
off the shore. Snook, cobia,
salt water trout, grouper, barra-
cuda, jewfish, flounder, bluefish,
sheepshead, mangrove snapper,
drum, ladyfish, and yellowtail are
caught throughout the entire year
in Tampa waters.
SA resident fishing license in
Florida costs $1.25 a year, while
a non-resident may obtain a ten
day continuous fishing license for
$2.00. No license is required to
fish in salt water.
Perspective anglers for salt
water should beware of fishing
tackle that lacks "give." Accord-
ing to fishing authorities, the best
tackle for salt water is a good
reel mounted on a Burma pole
with plenty of spring or a good


boats, motor, and tackle may be
had at any time.
Inland salt water can be fished
with a light casting rod or fly
rod. The best lures for the in-
land salt water are the Coiniet
Dillinger and similar types of
floating and sinking baits.

St. Petersburg Has Many Parks

Major League Teams Use Two


The green benches for which
St. Petersburg is famous have a
very interesting history.
Back in 1908, when the corners
of Second and Third Streets were
the principal gathering places on
Central Avenue, Noel A. Mitchell,
who had a real estate business on
the corner of Fourth and Central,
where the Walgreen building now
stands, decided that he must fur-
.ish some inducement to get the
people to come to his corner.
He built fifty large benches,
painted them a brilliant orange,
covered their backs with advertis-
ing and placed them. on the street
in front of his office. The crowd
soon began to make his corner
the main gathering place of the
city.
Other merchants soon saw the


value of this scheme and began
furnishing benches in front of
their places of business. Soon
Central Avenue, while having
plenty of places for visitors and
residents to sit and chat and bask
in the sun, was far from attrac-
tive, since the benches were of all
sizes, shapes and colors.
The city, seeing a chance to im-
prove the appearance of the street
without detracting from the hos-
pitality the benches offered,
passed an ordinance making all
benches green and of a standard
size.
City Owns Benches
At present there are 3,500
green benches in St. Petersburg,
of which 1,500 belong to the city
and are placed in city parks. The
others are owned by merchants.


At Eighteenth Avenue North,
just east of-Fourth Street, is Tur-
ner's Sunken Gardens, a tract cov-
ering four acres and planted with
all the trees, flowers and shrubs
popular in Florida, and many
others which are rare to this
state..
One is amazed to find such
large plantings of azaleas, camel-
lias, gardenias, roses and tropical
vines, such jungles of tropical
trees, such beautiful streams and
lily covered pools within the city
limits of St. Petersburg.
Much Natural Beauty
Over artistically winding con-
crete walks and arched bridges,
visitors walk through this ever
changing panorama of natural
beauty. Features are a 150-foot
bank of gardenias eight feet high,
several avenues of palms includ-
ing some of Florida's finest Royal
Palms and several beautiful speci-
mens of the Traveler Palm.
George Turner knows the his-
tory of every plant in his gardens
and is glad to answer questions
about them.
Animals, Birds, Reptiles
At 48th Avenue and 4th Street
North is one of St. Petersburg's
outstanding attractions. All speci-
mens are exhibited in spacious
outdoor cages and may be photo-
graphed at will.


More than 1000 animals, birds
and reptiles are on exhibit, in-
cluding herds of alligators and
crocodiles as well as a complete
collection of native animals.
"Great Horned Bird"
Here- may be seen the casso-
warp, or "Great Horned Bird."
Standing nearly six feet tall this
monarch of all jungle birds com-
mands the attention of all visit-
ors. Scores of funny monkeys
and interesting animals, from all
parts of the world, combine to
make this Florida's' greatest out-
door show.

LARGEST SHORE LINE
Florida has a longer shore line
than any other State. St. Peters-
burg alone has 38 miles of water-
front.

DUE SOUTH
St. Petersburg is almost
straight south of Cleveland.

SERGEANT SABOTAGED
DURING DRILLS

A drill sergeant at the air
corps training school in Texas
was sabotaged during cadence-
drill for rookie mechanics.
While teaching them orders in
their basic drilling course he
shouted: "Count cadence;
Count!"
"Eins, swei, drei, vier," an-
swered a devilish voice in Ger-
man.
Swiveling around with his
hands spread fan-wise on his hips
the irritated sergeant cocked his
right eyebrow, unleased a wither-
ing glance at the rookie, and ex-
ploded with:
"Who's the guy counting' in
Latin?"

HQ & HQ SQUADRON

POP OFFS
309th AIR BASE GROUP
I
By Pvt. Jesse Zimmerman
Cigar manufacturers are having
a field day in our outfit. Every-
where one turns, one is apt to
bump into a soldier puffing spirals
of smoke into the air from a fat,
juicy cigar atilt in a corner of his
mouth. It did not take me very
long to solve the mystery of the
cigar brigade. I discovered that
Brigadier General Going-Up has
been very active in Hq & Hq Squa-
dron of late, and the men who
were promoted didn't mind at all
passing cigars around.

Among the promoted was
Private Edwards. Learning that
he had won his corporal stripes,-I
accosted him as he walked past me
and asked him his first name for
the Going-Up column in the
Echoes.
Private Edwards, whose first
name I learned is Louis, replied
unwittingly, "Corporal." Evident-
ly Corporal Edwards has" let the
title of his new stripes become his
first name. At any rate Corporal
Edwards deserve'l the promotion,
working plenty hard with the new
recruits who have come to Drew
Field during the past month or so,
Good luck, Corporal Edwards!

Paging Byron Nelson: Men on
the Base who believe they are the
cat's miaou on a golf course should
get in touch with Pvt. Eddie
Forbes of Hqs. & Hqs Squadron if
they want to meet their match.
The other day Pvt. Forbes, a for-
mer Philadelphia pro, exhibited his
mastery while playing golf with
Pvts. Bill Wolf and Sam Lazisky
by sinking a 50-foot approach shot
on the ninth hole, using a No. 7
iron. Golfers know the unusual-
ness of the success of such a shot
without putting.

One of the Hq men working in
Base Headquarters stepped out of
line on Saturday night. Because
he is usually a sober, sedate indi-
vidual, it is best that he remain
anonymous.
At any rate this soldier went to
Tampa with some' of his buddies
and got pie-eyed drunk. He found
himself a sweet mama and wan-
dered off with her while his bud-
dies proceeded to a USO club
where the motion picture, Alex-
ander's Bagtime Band, was being
screened.
In the course of time his sweet
mama's company began to pall
upon him, so he left her and re-
turned to the USO club in search
of his buddies. In the darkness of
the auditorium, in the middle of
the showing of the film, he couldn't
find his buddies. Stepping over to
the motion picture operator, he
explained his predicament to him.
Would the operator kindly run a
slide on the screen, notifying his
friends to meet him after the
show?
The operator, being an obliging
soul, said that he wasn't in a posi-
tion to run a slide, but he would
be willing to stop the film and
turn on the lights. And so he did,
with our sinning soldier present-
ing' quite a spectacle as he stag-
gered up and down the aisle until
he found his buddies.
It would take a non-habitual
drunk to stop the show!

to win. The war can't be won
without the complete, unselfish
cooperation of every American
back home. All of them must
help to the uttermost of their en-
durance."
"Gen. Somervell also stated to
a press conference the past week:
'I'd like to say a word about the
officials of the big companies who
are out playing golf when we try
to get them on the phone. We've
got to have the same devotion to
duty from these men as manage-
ment expects from their employes
if we expect to put this thing
over'."
"We are not suggesting that
the wholesalers supplying the re-
quirements of Drew Field remain
open to serve ithe general public
on Saturday afternoons and Sun-
days," concluded Col. Asp, "but
we do feel that those places of
business should maintain suffi-
cient personnel on duty every day,
including Sunday, to supply emer-
gency requirement of our mili-
tary forces."



501st Regiment

We want to go on record and
state that Hq and Hq Company
Plotting Battalion is on' the way
to the outstanding company in
501st. Under the capable leader-
ship of Lt. Jamison, our splendid
Commanding Officer and his ex-
cellent personnel, Lt. Kitain, Lt.
Abbit, and 1st Sgt. Pratt, we will
accomplish our task. It can be
done. Just a little more effort
and we will reach our goal.


Many of the soldiers would like
to know who is the "Atlantic City
Hipster." 1st Sgt. Godfrey, can
you help us out? ...By the way, a
certain Sgt. Chapter in this com-
pany leaves his heart at the Alamo
most of the time Pvt. Tony
Cuva can't understand why he
must go to motor school when he
has driven a truck for 10 months.


Most of the fellows are attend-
ing the various A. W. schools and
here is a bit of advice. The tradi-
tional spring fever has already
gotten some of the soldiers' in the
school classes. But there's some-
thing new in this war-time spring.
It doesn't creep in. It confronts us
all dynamically. It's the spring
offensive, demanding that we an-
nihilate the ancient for the
achievement. We are preparing
now so that we can be confident
of victory on the future field of
battle. Exams are scheduled each
week in your school. Prepare by
daily maneuvers in the library and
at your tent. Be confident of vic-
tory on your major battlefield.

War Bond Sales Meet

Success At Drew


On the whole the personnel of
Drew Field has responded well to
the pay-reservation plan for the
purchase of War Savings Bonds,
having become the center of a
huge drive designed to enable
avery private, non-commissioned
officer, warrant officer, and com-
missioned officer on the field to
participate financially in our na-
tion's war effort.
Many of the men in the base
squadrons and regiments report
that they have arranged already
for the purchase of the bonds
through pay reservation. The im-
portant feature of the plan, of-
fered alike to civilian and mili-
tary personnel of the post, is the
arrangement by which purchases
may be completed in small
monthly installments of $1.25
multiples deducted from the pur-
chaser's pay. A $25 bond, for ex-
ample, may be obtained by ar-
ranging for 15 deductions of
$1.25 each at a total cost of
$18.75.
There are a few men, however,
Who are always beefing about one
thing or another, and at this time
one of them is the War Savings
Bond drive.

Hq. and Hqs. Battalion, 503d Sig-
nal Regiment, while eating in a
signal corps mess hall, overheard
one disgruntled recruit beefing
about the Bond drive. His com-
ment was exceptionally acidulous.
"That's some more of the old
Army baloney, that stuff about
buck privates buyin' War Bonds,"
he growled. "How the hell can
they expect a guy who's making'
only 21 bucks a month put out for
a Bond, too?" The rest of his
remarks were unprintable.
For such individuals it is our
intention to indicate just as
Sgt. Bromberg, disgusted by the
rookie's attitude, pointed out .
that the purchase of a Bond is not
compulsory, but voluntary. At the
same time the buying of a bond
is a gilt-edged investment in the
safest bond on the market, and
not a gamble.
It should be considered a priv-
ilege to buy bonds after reading
day after day of the almost super-
human efforts which were made
by the valiant defenders of Corre-
gidor and Bataan, and when we
think of the hardships endured by
American soldiers in Australia,
Europe, the Pacific Isles and Asia
under adverse conditions, of the
three members of a bomber's crew
who spent days on a rubber raft,
most of the time without food or
water, not knowing whether or
not they would be rescued.
Heartened by General MacAr-
thur's announcement of a few
days ago about the hurling back
of the Japs in the war's greatest
sea and air battle at "relatively
slight" cost to the victorious de-
fending forces, chiefly American,
in the battle of the Coral Sea, it
should be considered a privilege
to help our nation's war effort in
dollars and cents as well as serv-
ice. It was a roaring, flashing,
swirling combat spread over six
days and great reaches of the
waters just northeast of Austra-
lia, and it is up to us to see to it
that we can keep the roaring,
flashing combat going until the
war is brought to a victorious
conclusion. -

TIPS FROM THE


13th0


By Pvt. Samuel Levin
Although no league has been
formed, rivalry among the soft-
ball players of the Hqs.
and Hqs., 30th, 31st and 32nd
Squadrons is such that the forma-
tion of a loop would not be amiss.
Actual playing by these squadrons
only started last week, but inter-
est among the men is such that it
all appears like mid-season. It all
started Wednesday of last week
when the 30th trounced the 31st
to the tune of 21 to 5. Came last
Friday when the Hqs. and Hqs.
team trimmed the 30th by the one-
sided score of 38-2. On Saturday
the 32nd bumped the 30th, 10-5,
On the same day the Hqs. and
Hqs. aggregation administered a
9-3 defeat to 31st.

But the real fracas, and believe
you us, it was a fracas, was played
Monday afternoon between Hqs.
& Hqs. and the 31st. This game
was dead-locked at 0-0 until the
last frame when S/Sgt. McCauslin
broke it up with a circuit clout
into deep right field. He brought
in Pvt. Novak ahead of him. The
losers tried desperately to even
matters in their half of the inning
and almost succeeded but for the
fine fielding of the victors. A
short rally netted the 31st. a run
brought in by Pvt. Zekas but the
outburst was quickly squelched.
Members of the other two squa-
drons were interested spectators.
Some lost some money on the out-
come.

Pvt. Frank B. Ticknor, the
31st's poet and philosopher,
penned the following, shortly
after waking up one day last
week:
A MORNING THOUGHT
Each man a home and fireside seat
Each man a mother living there
Each mother's son enough to eat
And all somewhere held dear.
What more can man then better
ask
Than this and hopes of future
peace
So to your well-directed task
Until the warring nations cease to
quarrel.

Monday was a happy day for
those men who arrived at Drew
last month. They received their
first pay. All were happy, that is,
all those who received money for
the days they served the latter
part of last month. One fellow had
no pay and was told he owes the
government about 40 cents. He
enlisted April 20 but having taken
out $10,000 worth of insurance,
the money he earned in April went
for paying the first month's pre-
mium. Tough luck, soldier!


Where's Your


Plane Soldier


Civilians have some strange ideas
about soldiers and soldier's equip-
ment. Last week a member of the
ECHOES staff walked into a

Wedding Bells

Again In 309th


Although the date is tentative
the plans are not for Pvt. Vincent
dePaul McGarry, Hq. & Hq.
Squadron, 309th Air Base Group.
Pvt. Vincent tells all who will
listen that he is to be married
soon to the most lovely girl in
the world. She is Miss Eleanor
Anne McCullough, and they are
both from the same home town,
Norristown, Pa.
This Hq. & Hq. Squadron must
have something. The men are all
falling for the old gag that two
can live as cheap as one. And
the girls are all falling for the
men in the Squadron. What's the
secret, men?

350th Materiel


NEWS


By C. Behm
Personal:
We hate to contradict the 327th.
But their column lays claim to the
youngest member in the army.
Gentlemen the 350th has beyond
doubt, the youngest member, in
the whole Drew Field Roster, in
the person of Pvt. (Short Pants)
Hall, who is but sweet fifteen.

Will someone please write a
letter to Pvt. Pete Szeman, he is
wearing out the ones he has by
reading them over and over at
every opportunity.

Benny Says:
Laugh boys, but the 350th will
be in barracks when you're pick-
ing sand out of your mess kits.

Does anybody have a corny
joke that refuses to draw a laugh?
Take it to Pvt. (Old Bean) Lo-
pachansky. He will tickle your
ears with his appreciative laugh-
ter. Perhaps poor Mike was drop-
ped on an old joke book when he
was a child.

We don't get it. Sgt. Sacra gets
a two sentence letter from his girl
asking why he hasn't written late-
ly. Immediately obtaining a fur-
lough, he rushes out of camp and
marries the girl. Oh well. Best of
luck old top. You might have let
us know, at least.

Silly Ditty:
Mary has a great big boil
Where boils should never be

The camp loud speaker blasted
thunderously, "Attention! Atten-

and-one-half feet, has been lost.
If found, will the finder please re-
turn to Pvt. I. Losteet (or maybe
John Doe)."
This announcement attracted
numerous comments, chiefly of a
wisecracking nature, until the
loudspeaker sounded off with
blast number two: "Correction!
Correction! Box is twenty inches
by two-and-one-half feet."
Who, after all, other than a
signal corps soldier, could lose a
box that size?

Former Councilman

In Drew Field Band


From the halls of the borough
council in McKees Rocks, Pa., to
the band platform of the new
Drew Field band, such was the
jump made by Private John
Suszynski in a matter of a scant
few weeks.
Now a member of the Hq. &
Hq. Squadron of the 309th Air
Base Group, Private Suszynski
was starting his second term as a
borough councilman in the small
steel city when called to the col-
ors. Among the achievements of
this dignified, graying, 32-year-
old veteran, of the political arena
was the starting of housing and
sewer projects which added much
to his constituents.
The possessor of an unusual
dispositioni for a politician, the
former councilman does more lis-
tening than talking. When he
speaks about a dozen words, it
amounts practically to a long
speech-for him. A man of few
words, what little howling he re-


I nlllllng LsLaUt, .cve op
competitive spirit in your athletics. sorted to was always restricted to
Get that old college football feel- the benefit of his constituents,
ing. Get them on that fighting who showed their appreciation of
edge. And get that team work his efforts in their behalf by re-
clicking." Well, in an effort to electing him to the borough
follow these instructions, teams council..


were formed and the 553rd Me-
dicoes challenged all comers. We
licked some of our rivals, we also
got licked, and reports in the
Echoes ran into some rather tall
propaganda on both sides. In fact,
this writer's life was threatened
and the 503rd pill-rollers kicked
the stuffin's out of our crew after
our little Echoes' item of last
week. We can report, at any rate,
that the 553rd Medicoes and the
503rd Pill-rollers have definitely
got that called-for competitive
spirit.

Men, be prepared when you
come in and ask the captain for
that three-day pass. The other day
Pfc. Gossett had convinced the
captain that he had been a good
boy and was just about to get his
pass signed when the captain
noticed that there wasn't any ad-
dress on it as to where he was
going.
"What's the address?" he asked.
"What's the telephone number?"
The Pfc. looked bewildered. "I
dunno, sir," he mumbled.
"What's the name of the people
who you're going to visit."
At the moment all that Pvt.
Gossett could recall was that she
was a brunette who lived in Largo.
At length he produced the address
and as a reward received the pass.
For a while, however, he was
really in a sweat.
A brunette living in Largo?
Tsh, tsh, such a business!

From the Bragging Department:
Cpl. Zeigler reports that our vol-
ley ball crew didn't even have to
apply pressure to trim the 664th
Signal outfit a couple of days ago.
The scores were 21-7 and 21-5.
"Wasn't even a good workout,"
the boys say.
For those volley ball teams who
want the boys to give them a few
lessons in volleyball playing, just
call Tent City Ext. 118.

In addition to his public duties
he earned his living in the Regis-
try of Wills office in Allegheny
county, and also as marriage
license clerk he witnessed many
soldiers buying the legal right to
wedlock ceremonies.
Originally Private Suszynski
was placed in charge of the in-
dices and files of the 309th Air
Base Group headquarters, but
since the formation of the Drew
Field band his services as a
pianist were considered more es-
sential. It is said that the former
councilman is quite adept at the
tickling of the ivories.

In Lecture


(Continued from Page 1)
riously in the First World
War, he became a dope fiend
and developed other degenerate
habits. He was imprisoned for his
crimes, and was later released
with a dilapidated bowel system.
In plain words, he has no control
over his excretory system and that
is why he changes his uniforms
so frequently. When Bercovici
approached Goering for an inter-
view, he felt as if he was nearing
a hundred latrines that had been
stopped up.
The gist of his interview ran
along such lines as:
Goering: You are an American?
Bercovici: Yes, I am.
Goering: I love America, too.
Bercovici: How can you say
that? You have never been there.
Goering: Of course I love it.
And I have a habit of taking what
I love. I hate American architec-
ture and what I hate I usually
burn and destroy.
Goering went on' to say that he
would have no difficulty in con-
quering the United States. When
asked how that was, he replied
that twenty-five million Germans
are in America.
"But those Germans helped to i
lick you in the last war."
Goering smiled, saying, "The 1

CAPT. EARL SMITH

CHANGES STATION


Capt. Earle R. Smith, who, for
the past several months, has
served as Special Services Officer
of Drew Field, has received
another assignment and is now
serving at another post.
Capt. Smith came to Drew Field
from Headquarters of the Third
Air Force during July of last
year. During his period of service
as Special Services Officer he won
many friends among both the of-
ficers and enlisted men, all of
whom regretted to see him leave.

next war will be different. We
have propagandized them about
the German people being the mas-
ter race." It was Goering who
put together the German war
machine, an it is Goering who is
the real master of Germany, in
Bercovici's opinion.
The lecturer described Dr. Al-
fred Rosenberg as the theoreti-
cian of the Nazis who advanced
the theory of German race supre-
macy; Paul Goebbels as a small,
clubfooted degenerate with the
face of a monkey, an intelligent
man and a great speaker; and Ru-
dolph Hess as a sadist, known
throughout Germany as Fraulein
Hess because there was no secret
as to his relation to Hitler and
with Hitler.
The German people, Bercovici
stated further, were ruined by the*
Prussians who took control in the
nineteenth century not only of the
military, but the educational sys-
tem as well. Since 1870 the Ger-
man people have been dehuman-
ized, according to the lecturer,
and the whole nation follows the
Hitler regime. There is, however,
no trace of the barbarism that has
transformed the German people
into savages, in the German-Am-
erican people because they were
sensible enough to break loose
from the yoke of Prussian rule.
Any intelligent German knows,
in Bercovici's opinion, that the
war is lost, that it is only a mat-
ter of a year, maybe two, maybe
only six months of fighting, but
his pride in the myth of Nordic
supremacy keeps him going.
"We made a mistake," Berco-
vici said, "at the end of the last
war. Hitler and his Nazi gang
were permitted loose rein and
they told the German people that
the war wasn't lost on the battle-
field, but that they were betrayed
by the Jews and international
bankers."
"We should send an army of
education into Germany after this
war is over," he concluded, "in-
stead of an army of occupation
that we might re-educate the Ger-
man people to become human
beings, to no longer remain
beasts."

By Pvt. Robert Marinaro
As you stroll by Kitchen No. 3
you'll notice a flag in two deli-
cious flavors, red with blue letter-
ing. Inscribed thereon are the let-
ters "BEST KITCHEN," and
therein lies a tale.
Ah! The blood and tears it took
to get that flag. Think of the
K.P.' awakened at the gruesome
hour of 5:30 still dark yet .
then make their way to the kit-
chen to be greeted at the door by
the cook, asking what the H 1'
took them-so long to get there.
Then it really starts, sweep the
place, get the food on the tables,
