Gold Star Mothers


Invited To Drew


For Memorial Day


On the first Memorial Day o.
World War II, Drew Field men will
be hosts to about 150 Gold Star
mothers from Tampa. Services will
be held at 11 A. M. on Sunday in
the big Assembly Tent north o.
the old Base Headquarters. Chap
lain William L. Clark, Base Chap.
lain, will deliver the sermon.
There is, indeed, much to com-
memorate on this Memorial Day.
The superhuman sacrifices made by
the valiant defenders of Corregidor
and Bataa'n, the hardships endured
by American soldiers in Australia,
Europe, the Pacific Isles and Asia
under adverse conditions are
worthy of remembrance. Memorial
Day this year is a rallying point
for the struggles to come,, the bat-
Ste to blot barbaric Hitlerism and
Japanese imperialism from the face
of the earth.
Following the services, the Gold
Star mothers have been invited by
Captain Walter F. Joyce, Base Mess
Officer, to be guests 'of the Base
Mess Halls for dinner.


Clearwater Yatch Club

Plans Hop Saturday Eve

Drew Field soldiers will be en,
tertained at a dance in Clearwater
Saturday night. Provisions have
been made to take 100 soldiers, so
if you're interested, contact Ser-
geant Reeves or Pvt. Whitehead in
the Morale Tent, located in tent 2,
row 5, tent area.
The dance will be held at the
Clearwater Yacht Club and is be-
ing sponsored by the Recreation
Committee of the Clearwater De-
fense Council.
Convoy will be furnished and
will leave from P. V. No. 2 at 7

Swimmers Wanted

Men interested in competitive
swimming are requested to contact
the Morale Tent in the tent area
of Lt. R. H. R. Risley, at the Base

Plans are being made for a swim-
ming team to be selected to reprc-
sent Drew at swimming meets
throughout the summer months.

OK for Shirts


New shoulder patches began to
blossom out like the flowers of May
on Drew Field last week-end.
New regulations allow the patch
to be worn on the shoulders of
shirts. All outer garments should
have the patch on the left shoulder
one-half inch below the seam. Pre-
vious regulations had limited the
wearing of shoulder patches to
jackets and blouses.
New Air Force patches will be
available in quantity as soon as th.e
Service of Supply can issue them.
Until that time it is necessary for
men to buy their own insignia.


Charge of the Light Brigade Has

Nothing On 314th Chow Rush


The avalanche of sound, the
thunderous noise of hundreds of
pounding feet heard nightly, im-
mediately after retreat, does not
signal the approach of the Japs or
a herd of loose elephants. It's just
the 314th in their mad dash to the
mess hall.
The men risk disaster, mayhem
and murder, but to date no casual-
ties have been recorded. It's all in
good clean fun, but the palms


planted between the street and
mess hall quiver with fear as each
mess call nears. Organizations liv-
ing nearby have learned-the harl
way-to take cover and give the
314th a clear road.
An officer, after witnessing the
mad scramble one day last week,
was heard to remark, "If they'd
just give those men sling-shots,
tell 'em they could be fed in Tokio,
and turn 'em loose, the war would
be over in less than a week."


fliers skimmed over the house-
tops of Tokio and dropped bombs
on Japanese docks, ships and mu-
nition plants the first installment
was paid in avenging the treach-
erous attack on Pearl Harbor.
For two days the fires from Doo-
little's bombs devastated Tokio's
war industrial plants and those
of other Nipponese cities. Tojo's
propagandists attempted in vain
to stem the panic of the people
by trying to belittle the impor-
tance of the attack. But the war
lords of Tokio know that attack
will be repeated-that American
bombers will return again and
again and the day of vengeance
for Pearl Harbor is in sight.'
The Medal of Honor for Gen-
eral Doolittle and the Distin-
guished Service Cross for each of
his intrepid aviators, bestowed by
President Roosevelt, represent
every loyal American citizen's
gratitude for this most brilliant,
exploit in aviation history.


STOLEN BULBS


PUT SERGEANT


ON THE SPOI

Shades of DeMaupassnt! What
will soldiers think of next?
Sergeant Edward Sunderman, of
Kitchen No. 1, Drew Field, was hav-
ing trouble keeping light bulbs in
his kitchen. His company comman-
der was getting a little fed up with
the kitchen forever requesting new
bulbs. And the sergeant was
stumped. He couldn't catch the
culprit.
Finally the sergeant decided to
mark every bulb in the kitchen.
He filed a small mark on each bulb
base and asked his officer to hold
a monthly inspection of all bulbs
in the company. The officer agreed
to the plan and both men looked.l
forward to inspection time when
the thief would be brought to light.
Came inspection day. Every light
bulb in the company was laid out
on bunks. Not a marked bulb was
discovered until the commanding
officer came to the tent of Sergeant
Sunderman. And there, so help us,
was a marked bulb.
The sergeant and his tent mates
denied any knowledge of the stolen
bulb. The officer decided to confine
the men to camp until one of them
confessed to the crime.
A week passed before a cook,
who also lived in the tent, returned
from a furlough. He confessed he
had 'borrowed' the bulb one even-
ing and had forgotten to return it.
Sergeant Sunderman has decided
to leave detecting to the detectives.

We like the descriptive phrase
Lt. Merrill uses in describing the
WEEP driven by Colonel Gimbel.
He calls it a "motorized foot
locker."


Enlisted Men at Drew Have



Opportunity for Commissions


Monday's Show

One of the Best


Soldiers agreed that Monday's
outdoor show was the best they
have seen in the outdoor arena.
Produced by Private O. Z. White-
head, under the direction of Col.
Richard Gimbel, the show ran over
two hours. The
The seating capacity of the arena
has been more than doubled re-
cently but only half of the audience
were seated. The remainder stood
throughout the show without 's
grumble, for the entertainment was
fast and good.
Pvt. 0: Z. Whitehead introduced
Col. Gimbel, Base Special Services
Officer, who informed us of the
show MacDill Field is bringing to
Drew tonight. The following Fri-
day night we will give a return
show at MacDill Field. Master of
ceremonies, Sgt. Seab Reeves, in-
troduced the following program:

Drew Field enlisted mek desiring
to become officers may greatly en-
hance their opportunities for mak-
ing the grade by a thorough pre-
paration. Any man who possesses
the qualities of leadership, who is
intelligent and alert and who A
within the maximum age limits for
commissions in the Army of the
United States, is excellent material
for Officer Candidate Schools. Such
a man who has a firm foundation
of information and general knowl-
edge prepared by study will find
the way literally paved for him.
Courses Greatly Condensed
Intensive study is necessary a'i
evidenced in the decreased time ah
officer candidate is processed in
the school. Normally four years
are required, to qualify. Now the
course is condensed into three
months. Such a condensation re-
quires that the individual be in-
telligent, well-informed, with an
excellent background of informa-
tion, and capable of assiduous:
study. In brief, he must be pre-
pared before he enters.
Manuals Necessary
All unit commanders can make
available to prospective candi-
dates Army manuals on tech-
nical subjects. Two very helpful
manuals for prospective officer-
candidates to study are TM 12-250
and TM 11-455. Men may also im-
prove their technical knowledge by
borrowing available books at the.
Base Library.
In addition to such studies the-
soldier should be alert as to the-
present world situation and as toa
the troops involved.
Qualified Men Urged to Apply
Qualified men are urged to take-
the steps necessary and to file in
application for training which will
lead on a commission.


New Bugle Call Answer


To A Soldier's Prayer


Miss Esther Howarth


There will be a brand new bugle
call heard at Drew Field starting
Monday. It won't be the one blow-
ing you out of bed at six A. M.
The new bugle call will be a pro-
gram of hot dance music originat-
ing from the studies of WTSP, St.
Petersburg, and will be on the air
from 6:45 to 7 every morning.
Miss Estner Howarth, announcer
and military editor of the St. Pet-
ersburg Times, (she's lovely, see
photo at lef) will be emcee. And
if you want your favorite tune
played especially for you just drop
by the Public Relations office for
a stamped, self-addressed "request
card."

The recreation center with thea-
tre buildings, service clubs, etc.,
that is taking form, is a delight to
Drew soldiers. No more will we
have to hold up a lamp post in
Tampa for recreation.

NEWS

By Pvt. Christ Behm
At the age of eighteen Vernon
Mimms left his home in Chatta-
nooga, Tenn., and entered the ser-
vice of the United States Army.
Starting from New York City, Pvt.
Mimms was shipped to Honolulu
for two years with the infantry,
where he attained his valuable
knowledge of guns and general
army work that he is now drilling
into our thick skulls.
Obtaining an honorable discharge
at the age of twenty-one, Citizen
Mimms once again sought the
peace and tranquillity of civilian
life. But after three months the
old urge overcame him and once
again he entered the service of his


Mi M BEli. country.

Twosome in the Year's Biggest Jubilee
of Mirth and Music


where he gained the rank of Cor-
poral. But he was destined to see
very little of MacDill Field, for he
was soon boarding a troop ship
headed for Newfoundland. The dis-
tinction of being one of the first
American soldiers to set foot on
this island is his. And if you should
care to hear tales of hardships, as
well as amusement, ask him about
his experience at this frigid out-
post.
Coming back to Florida some five
months later, a hardened corporal,
Mimms was assigned to his present
station-Drew Field, where he rap-
idly attained the rank of sergeant,
and later staff sergeant.
The men who have worked and
drilled under Sgt. Mimms will read-
ily attest to the thoroughness of
his teachings, and to the willing
manner with which he goes out of
his way to help those that seek his
aid.
One thing is very noticeabile
in his manner is that when he is
on duty it's strictly duty and noth-
ing else. And when he relaxes from
his work, a good time is surely
scheduled.
All of this sums up a swell fel-
low and an excellent leader. And,
borrowing his favorite expression,
"I ain't woofin."
Congratulations to Sgt. Jeff Rob-
bins. We hear the Sgt. is taking
the fatal step around the first of
the month. Rumor has it that the
will put an end to a much delayed
occasion.
Merely watching Corp Mumma
work makes you feel tired. Don't
you ever.rest, Bill? Watch out, or
you'll have us all feeling ambitious.
Benny says:-Under Major Kaep-
pel's skillful handling of the huge
bomber, the flight we took last
week was truly enjoyable. Not one
case of air-sickness was. recorded.
Are you reading this, 327th?
Some one is going to be trampled
on one of these evenings by that
mad rush for mess after Retreat.
Some of the boys seem actually to
fly away at the command to fall
out.
Come on you tenors, baritones,
etc. Report to me in tent No. 3 at
once. There is good work to be
done. And how about you fellows
with instruments? Let's hear from
you.


REPORTS

Hq. Co. Rept. Bn. 503rd

Congratulations to these men on
their promotion: Charles C. Alex-
ander and Leo S. Taylor, to T/Sgt.;
John R. Barron and Kenneth W.

ke, toSgt., and Edgar R. Park an_'
Herbert Morgan, to Corporals.
Also conratulaticns to those

Pvt. Giust'zia of Coney Island:
That's a pretty boid, isn't it, Ser-
geant?
Sgt. Miller: That's not a boid,
that's a bird.
Pvt. G. again: It must be a boil,
it choips.

tered a lacing tc the 503rd Third

ternoon. Our athletic non-com.,
T/Sgt. Alexander, hit two homers
that proved to be the undoing of
our competitors.

IF EXPERIENCE COUNTS
A few weeks back the Reception
Center of Camp Walters, Texas,
got a pair of new enlistees-one
used to train chimpanzees and the
other was a lion tamer. Discover-
ing this, one bright private ob-
served: "Now, those guys are born
sergeants if ever there was one!"


3rd Interceptor

SHORT-SHOTS

By T. G. Carlton
It is rumored that Sgt. Cecil
Myers is still trying to sweat out
that fourth stripe. It seems that he
is doing so for the express purpos.-
of marrying a little gal. It all de-
pends, of course, on whether or not
he can possibly find one that wiii
consent to take that final plans.
Anyhow, the men wish the sergeant
the best of luck.
Hq Squadron, 3rd I. C., has one
distinction- four men with the
same last name, Williams. There
is a small Williams, Tech. Sgt.
Clyde F.; a medium sized Wil-
liams, Pfc R. C.; a slim Williams,
Sgt. George; and last, but far from
least, a big Williams, Pfe Lewis T.
Top that if you can, you other
squadrons.
The Third Interceptor Command
is now regarded as the Third
Fighter Command.
This coming Sunday will be a
happy one for the men in down-
stairs Barrack B-1. They were re-
stricted for seven days. Restriction
is up on, Sunday.
Many of the men are wondering
why Cpl. Sam Palmer patronizes
Madison's Drug Store so frequent-
ly. Could it be the food?
One of the privates asked a cor-
poral the best time to take a nap.
"When the flies are not so bad,"
was the prompt reply.
"And when is that?"
"About chow time," the corporal
answered.
The private was persistent. "And
why is that?"
"Because they are all in the mess
hall then."

That cherry smile, the jaunty
air, and puffed-out chest worn by
Staff Sergeant Hunter around the
base lately is caused by his recent
marriage to Miss Ruth Bowden of
Charlotte, N. C.
Sergeant Hunter took the fateful
step while on furlough recently.
The missus is expected to move
to Tampa in June. The couple plan
to start house-keeping and live in
the city while the sergeant is sta-
tioned at Drew.
Congrats from all of us to the

533 Sig. A. W. Regiment

We are a little late with our con-
gratulations to our newly-weds:
Pvt. and Mrs. Joseph S. McLeon,
and Pfc. and Mrs. Lee V. Teller.
We enlisted men also want to
extend our congratulations to our
recently promoted officers, Major
L. Kingsford, Capt. Mack C. Jay,
1st Lt. John R. Henderson, and Ist
Lt. George L. Wilson.
Our Regimental Kitchen is really
looking swell these days. We are
very proud of it, but would be a
lot more proud if the food came
out more suitable. Lt. Knox is do-
ing a fine job, and we take our hats
off to him.
The double-decking of bunks is
easing the housing situation, but
increasing the sleepless nights of
the guy upstairs. What we need
now are ladders like those found
in the Pullman coaches. Just a
note to those guys upstairs-make
sure not to throw those G. I. shoes
down; the occupant. downstairs
may not be completely in bed.
What with the seven day week
'id the gasoline rationing, the con-
xoyg out of camp are getting very
,.)pular. Just one point on that
.; object if you sign up for a convoy
o. one kind or another, make every
ssible effort to be there and go.
Who were the two corporals and
.ie one pfc who were swimming
Saturdayy night and had their shirts
borrowed? After all that Basic
Training, they didn't know enough
to post a guard over the clothes.

Your Fun Is Our Fun
1210 Franklin Street Tampa


HQ and HQ Squadron
By Pfc Andrew Paterson
Our loss was MacDill's gain. It
was with much regret that we
learned we were losing our "Doc."
Capt. Malins, our Group Surgeon,
has been transferred to MacDill
Hospital. We enjoyed working with
the captain and are going to miss
him. We wish him the best of luck
in his new assignment.
That great sigh of relief heard
in the tent area the other day was
traced at last to Captain Turner.
We wonder if it could have been
the receipt of the long awaited
safe? Looks now as if those bulg-
ing money bags are finally secure
under lock and key. The sight of
those money bags brought to mind
the good old stage coach days, and
we don't blame the C. 0. one bit
for that sigh of relief.
If you have wondered who are
those men you've seen walking
around the tent area with what
looks like yellow jaundice, don't
worry about them. They are what
we affectionately call our "Camma-
floogers," the little men wiho spray
the tents.
The boys are doing a swell job,
but one of the men who has been
on guard almost broke their hearts
the other day. He had not been in
the tent area for quite some time
and evidenced his surprise when he
asked, "Say, how come those tents
faded so soon." The gnashing o&
teeth was plainly 1eard throughout
the area.
That dense cloud of smoke seen
hanging over the air in recent days
was not a rubbish fire, but just
some of the boys enjoying the
"promotion cigars." We were all
glad to see the Leys step up anoth-
er rung in the ladder from Sgt. to
S/Sgt., John Gedderella, Joseph
Kiefer, William Maple, and Walter
Reeve; from Cpl. to Sgt., Henmy
Duda and Novel C. Melton; from
privates to cpls., James Smith, Al-
vin Vaughn, Clarence Stephen, andl
Edward Thompson.
We can just as well forget that
old song, "Ma, I miss your apple
pie," because we've got the bet
darn baker in camp. Private Ray
D'Cello, of this squadron, puts out
pies that-well, you just can't beat
them. That boy ought to make
some woman a darn good cooK.
Just let him keep on baking them,
and we'll eat them.
You just have to hand it lo
S/Sgt. Gennerella; he certainly is
doing a fine job, acting as 1st Sgt.
while 1st! Sgt. Miller is taking that
long-earned furlough. "Genny" has
only been on the verge of six ner-
vous breakdowns, but we think he
will be able to hold out until "Iron
Man" Miller returns. The boys are
all wondering if "Iron Man" will
take the step while he is home.
We know that there are at lea,;t
two of the home-town girls just
waiting for him. Only time will
tell, but you just can't blame us
for wondering.


American Soldier

Is Larger Today

An increase in both weight and
stature distinguish the modern
American soldier from the average
citizen-soldier who entered tihe
Army in 1917, it is revealed by the


327 Material Squadron
By T. G. Meo
Sergeant Richard Burke, who
comes from South Carolina, has just
received his appointment for Offi-
cers Training School. Sergeant
Burke joined the army Jan. 13, 1941.
Before coming to Drew Field he
completed an armament course at
Lowry Field, then landed in the
37th Material at MacDill Field. It
will be a hard and tough course,
but we know that he will make the
grade and we wish him the best of
luck on his new venture. We are
sorry to lose him because of his
fine work with the 327th. But our
loss will be the army's gain.
We are glad to see that Clarence
Templin has recovered from his ill-
ness and has returned from the
MacDill Hospital, ready to swing
into things again.
Private Earl Miller and Private
Joseph Habor have just been con-
fined to the MacDill Hospital. We
hope that their stay. won't be a
long one. (You can't keep a good
soldier down).
Our sympathies' lie with Private
Frances Devine for the recent
death of his auA, Miss Lindsey, of
Clifton Heights, Pennsylvania. We
want to acknowledge the fact that
the flowers sent to Miss Liadsey
from the boys of the 327th were re-
ceived with gratefulness from the
rest of the family.
If any of you recruits are out for
a walk with your love and you smell
the sweet essence of iresh cut hay
in the air, it is no time to get rom-
antic as it may be Phosgene Gas.
So run ;or ;our gas mask, remem-
bering to bring t';e girl friend
along.
If )ou pass kitchen number 5 and
hear a noise that sounds like busy
bees, don't think that they are
making honey. It's our K. P's busi.
at work on the pots and pans, mak-
ing sure that everything is kept
spotless. Keep up the good work,
boys; some day a K. P. will receive
recognit on.
Attention, Hollywood. Private,
Edmond McGuire has just been
picked as having the best photo-
graphic face by Tampa Studios.
Oh, for a Barrymore profile!
Private "Muscles" Cummings has
just received his questionnaire from
his local board in Norwood, Penn-
sylvania. I wonder if they know
that we are at war. "Muscles"
ought to inform his local board we
are.
Who was the lovely Southern
Belle that Private Bill Cummins
was talking to in Childs' restaurant
last Friday night. How about :an
introduction, Bill, or must we see'
the "Deacon."
Who was the good looking girl
we saw Private Benjamin Wein-
raub walking with the other night?
Shhh-it's his wife.

In 1917 the average man entering
the Army was 67.49 inches in

This constitutes an increase of .7

The average weight of the 1917

the man entering the Army today
tips the scales at an average of

JINX IS BROKEN AS DREW WINS


11-5


Interceptors Wallop


Tasco After 6 Loses


The Drew Interceptors after los
ing six straight games, finally
broke into the winning column
when they soundly thumped Tascc
in an exhibition game at Regan
Park. The real feature of the game
was that for the first time in a long
while the Drew Field team hit
when hits were needed.
Using their twelve hits to good
advantage the soldiers scored ele-
ven runs. The final score read
Drew Field 11, Tasco 5. Bekeza
with three hits led the attack but
he was ably assisted by Burch,
Forkiser and Klimczak with twe
apiece.
Charles Moore was the winning
pitcher and the team played heads
up ball even though errors are still
being made much too often. The
infield composed of Ferkiser, Ib,
Klimczak, 2b, Howell, ss, and
Burch, 3b, played their best game
since they were recently thrown
together as a unit.
Weak fielding has been the
down-fall of the Drew Field team
and if the team can overcome their
faults in the field the fans can look
for an increase in victories as the
hitting has been of the highest
quality.
Batteries for the Tasco game
were: Whitman, Wood and Con-
trera for Tasco. Moore and Bekeza
for Drew Field.

It doesn't pay to have a sweet

NEWS


By Pfc. John Dmitrzak
Sgt. Foster would like to know
how he can go to visit his girl ev-
ery night on his allotment of 3 gal-
lons of gas a week. I'd say-buy
a horse. (She lives on the outskirts
of town.)
The boys in the 30th would like
to know when they will rate a ride
in a bomber. What does the 350th
Material have that we haven't?
Nothing. So what do you say, Ser-
geant? How about fixing it up?
If anyone is interested, Sergeant
Barbour has a horse he wants to
sell. He claims it has plenty of
horse sense.
Pvt. Robinette is still bouncing
from the ride he got into Tampa
on the rear end of a truck. What a
ride? I ought to know. I was there
with him.
Pvt. Boxheimer's parents were
down to visit him last week. I hope
they liked Florida as much as we
do.
Congratulations, to all the boys
in the 30th who received promo-
tions.
Sgt. Barbour led his Squadron
softball team to victory against the
32nd Squadron by the score of 8 to
7. This is the second time we have
beaten them.
We believe that one of these
days Sgt. Foster is going to take
off, doing the side-straddle hop, in
those loose blue overalls he wears.

In their half of the inning, the

off with a triple to deep right and
scored a moment later on Klim-
