327. Service Squadron
By Pfc. T. G. Meo
Now that the 327th Service
Squadron has a new dayroom, it
looks as if a new pool feud has
been started between Buttercup
and Daisy. Daisy, a Greenleaf with
a cue stick, is now holding the
upper hand in games won, winning
seven out of seven, but don't think
Buttercup is discouraged. He
spends all his leisure hours in the
pool room hoping that some day
he will be victorious over his
master.

We often heard the expression,
"girl leaves boy," but when you
hear that "boy leaves girl," it's
news. Pvt. Dombraski and Pvt.
Coyle, better known as "The Fly-
ing Butcher," met up with two
beautiful Tampa belles. Before the
courtship was over, the two pri-
vates were known as "The Drips
from Drew." Here is how.they got
the nickname. The two belles spent
two days trying to buy the best-
hand lotion so as to soften their
hands to an irresistible touch. But
it was all in vain. The two drips
sat throughout the evening with
their hands in their pockets. (A
correction should be made. They
took their hands out once to go
for a bicycle ride, leaving the two
girls alone to sip their cokes.)
Perhaps we should apologize for
the two drips, as we soldiers are
taught never to hold a girl's hand.

Could it be that a ghost is
haunting Barracks T-413? Every
night the boys are awakened by a
sudden crash and find themselves
sleeping on the floor. Looks more
like a skeleton to us. Hey,
Deacon!

Congratulations are in place!
Sgt. Bernard F. Wallace walked
down the aisle to say "I do" to
Miss Mae Vaglica, a native -of
Tampa. After a whirlwind court-
ship of two months, Wallace final-
ly persuaded her to take the vows.
If being a good soldier makes a
good husband, the marriage
should be successful. By the way,
S/Sgt. McGee was best man. We
wonder if he was also cupid?


Tater Tale
If we ever meet our paternal
great-grandfather in the Great Be-
yond, we are going to have some-
thing to say to him on the subject
of the Potato.
From what we can unearth of
the family history, it appears that
Great Grandpop left the Ould Sod
in the Furious Forties of the last
century because there was a short-
age of the lowly spud. Lots of
shamrocks, but no potatoes.
Well, brother, he came to the
right place!
He must have been picking out
for his descendants a land of plen-
tiful Murphs and we even suspect
he forsaw this Selective Service
business.
We have learned more aloutThe
Potato in a few short months than
we'll bet Great-Grandpa Jack knew
in all his years.
He only grew 'em and ate 'em.
We peel 'em. Hundreds of 'em. Big
ones. Little ones. Cooked ones.
"Believe-It-Or-Not" Ripley ones.
Ones with a dozen eyes. Ones that
have started to sprout.
We've got the crinkles in our
right forefinger so definitely po-
tato-scarred now that even-Wood-
bury's won't help.
When the war's all over, wt
going to follow the advice t n
Army offered in its peacetime re-
cruiting publicity-"Join the Army
and Learn a Trade."
We're gonna buy a restaurant.
Everything in the kitchen will be
automatic except one process. For
that we're going to hire a lot of
guys we know.
And stand around watching them
peel potatoes.

DREW SERGEANT
WRITES STORIES
IN SPARE TIME

Robert Ross quit a job as an
electrician in Chicago to volun-
teer as a private in the first
World War. Nearly 25 years later,
Master Sergeant Ross is still in
the army he's the non-comis-
sioned officer in charge of the
base intelligence office at Drew
Field-and he has a 'brand new
trade, developed in the years he
served in the army-short story
writing.
Dark and short (he stands 5
feet, 3% inches), Ross has served
in three arms of the United States
army-the infantry, the coast
artillery and the air corps. During
his months in France, he took part
in three batles-in the Meuse Ar-
gonne, Aisne-Marne and Vesle
sectors, and also served in the
Army of Occupation in Germany
after the armistice.
The machine-gun wound he re-
ceived in the Aisne-Marne offen-
sive did not dampen Ross's en-
thusiasm for the army, for a few
months after receiving his dis-
charge he signed up for another
enlistment. With the exception of
five months, he has been in the
service continuously ever since.
Ross came to Drew Field two
years ago from Langley Field,
Va., where he had been stationed
ten years.
"You wouldn't have recognized
Drew Field then," he says.
"When I arrived in May, 1940,
there was only one city hangar on
the field and only about 100
troops were stationed here."
Ross later transferred to the
Third Air Corps in Tampa, but


last October came back to Drew.
He evidently likes Ta~npa, for he
has bought a home in the city
where he lives with his wife and
9-year old daughter and where he
plans to live on retiring from the
army.
When that day comes, Ross
hopes to spend much of his time
writing short stories, a hobby he
picked up in the army and which
he developed into a profession.
He is especially interested in the
short stories of H. B. Jones and
Steve Fisher. Like everything
else, Ross's writing time has been
limited by the war, so Drew Field
men probably won't be reading
many stories under the by-line of
"Robert Ross" until after the
duration.

We wish those fellows who are
wondering about the lack of so-
cial activities would bring their
suggestions to us. At the present
time the shortage of rubber and
gas is hampering our means of
transportation. But if anything at
all can be done to carry out an
activity, it will be done. For your
information, there are several
functions which will be held in
the very near future.






By Frank Focht
It is not our purpose or place
to editorialize. But we would like
to drop a hint to the civilians on
the field. To us in the army Re-
treat is perhaps the most impres-
sive ceremony we have. In those
brief minutes at 5:30 we more
than ever become fully conscious
of the tremendous task we are
preparing ourselves for and as the
bugle blows we individually re-
new our pledge to our country.
Consequently, indifference at this
time irks us. Trucks double their
speed, tractors roar louder and
workmen plow over the lawns
with little regard for the colors or
formations. We appreciate the
fact that production is all-import-
ant and we laud you but, please
fellows, slow up. And if you're not
in too much of a hurry-salute
with us.

The three rarest things in exis-
tenc'e are radium, real meat in
lhamburger, and a native of
Brooklyn who can speak English.
Pvt. Arnold Piellucci is well-vers-
ed in army vernacular but the
buoyant shrimp is occasionally
squelched by the fair sex. He
.donned his fanciest manners at the
dance and with considerable effort
asked debonairly, "May I have this
dance?" "Surely," smiled the
sweet young thing, "if you can
find someone to dance it with."
To which our hero retorted icily,
"Don't let it go to your head I'm
just practisin'."

Pvt. Pemelton Bowers is leav-
ing soon for cooking school, con-
sequently his romantic approach
has been altered a little:
For you I'd Grab the Stars,
And set them In a Ring,
A simple stew with You
Would taste good like everything.
For You I'd get the Moon
They say it is a cheese,
And slice it up for sandwiches,
Your appetite to tease.

Note to advertising salesmen:
Recently promoted Corp. John
Ashe ,"Little Atlas" to his wife,
is thinking about opening a school
for the development of the body
beautiful.

Tech Sergeant John Malone is
the new addition to the Flight
Surgeon's Staff. With vast ex-
perience in that type of work he
should have the office working its
smoothest shortly.

Pvt. Joe Filas insisted the
dance was so crowded someone


tapped him on the shoulder and
asked, "Pardon'me, have you seen
the girl I'm dancing with?"

While Pvt. Bill Nugent turns
philosopher with his famous line,
"She was only a lumberman's
daughter but she always would."

A Drew Field soldier reports
that his brother fainted on the
street back in his home town and
it took eight policemen to hold
back the first-aiders.

1st Rept. Co.


503rd Bn.


By Pvt. Arno Justman
Your raving reporter came upon
a scoop the other day that is far
too good to withhold from the pu-
blic. In fact the person himself is
too rare to keep out of the lime-
light any longer. Men, 1st Sgt.
Scott is in the market for some
merchandise and I don't mean
material. Can you imagine a 1st
Sgt. who rarely swears, who
neither smokes nor chews, who is
moderate to a minimum in his
drinking, who does not have clan-
destine nocturnal cavortings, who
writes home regularly and who
runs this company in a way that
would bring a glint to General
Marshall's eye? Yes, sir, that is
just a few of the many things that
could be written about him. And
men, believe me when I say that
this Sgt. has no girl. That is, no
girl we know about. So right here
and flow, we of the company are in
the business. We want a girl, not
just any girl, but The Girl. Any
cooperation will 'be appreciated.


A short spot about a corporal
who is long on friends. This cor-
poral has been assigned to another
company which is their gain and
our loss, as he is tops. We regret
losing .Corporal Webb. I have a
hunch the corporal will go a long
way in a short time and I'm not
talking about miles.

Like a group of Volga boatmen,
a group of men trudged down the
road, their shoulders slunk, their
heads lolling, their eyes mere slits
peeking out of dejected, haggard
faces, their gait slow and falter-
ing as if on that Last Mile. Oc-
casionally one would lift his head
as if trying to get a glimpse of
some Shangri-La and then, fail-
ing, drop it in weariness. The en-
tourage was the personification of
despondency. You've guessed it.
They have just completed their
furloughs.

Speaking of sergeants, me-
thinks a word or two about a few
would now be in order. First, there
is 4gt. Vest. If at any time you
have a tune in your mind and
want someone to try and recognize
it, for heaven's sake, don't go to
Sgt. Vest, because) if you do not


done. That man makes Sherlock
Holmes appear as a rank amateur.

Then there is Sgt. Doxen. If at
any time you hear a cry that starts
with "Hey, have you seen ser-
geant?" That is all you will have
to hear because as you have now
guessed the last will be Sergeant
Doxen. Half of the men haven't
even seen him yet and they have
been here at least two months.

Then there is Sgt. Schooler, the
thinker. When said sergeant is in
the throes of writing, just forget
about trying to get his attention.
It is quite impossible. There is a
story, just a story, mind you, that
once Sgt. Schooler was writing
when the company received orders
to move immediately which it car-
ried out lock, stock and barrel.
When the Sgt. finished, he walked
outside and wondered who had re-
made the street. Tsk! Tsk!

This column is being written on
the eve of pay day, and what a
pay day! For weeks the boys have
been planning ways and means of
spending those extra shekels and
by the time you read this the cele
bration should be in full swing.
Don't forget, boys, the end of the
month is just as far away as it
always has been.

The boys were a little sour
when they found no sugar to
sweeten their morning disposi-
tions on Sunday. You know who's
to blame. No not the brow-beaten
Mess Sergeant, but the Axis.

Sig. Hdqrs. and Hdqrs. Co.

Third Fighters Command
By Pvt. Larry Ralston
The company made an outing
last Monday and Tuesday to Rocky
Point for a fishing party in the
Gulf. Except for a few medium size
ones caught by us, there are still
lots of fish left over there, so
don't any of you soldiers hesitate
to try your luck. The men took
some good snapshorts, and the
yelling back and forth between the
men in the two boats was a riot.
Although only a few fish were
caught, a good time was had by all.

Have you noticed the men wear-
ing green fatigue uniforms on the
lawn at Signal Hdqr lately? Or
heard the shouts, "Ready on the
right, ready on the left, ready on
the firing line." Followed by the
steady click of empty rifles? It's
only recruit drill for the new men
recently adopted by the company.
American soldiers are capable of
picking things up quickly, so it
shouldn't be long before Signal
Hdqrs turns out a well-rounded
outfit.

A new park is in progress just
east of the East and West cement
runway. Signal Hdqrs. has deci-
ded, in view of the war effort and
the shortage of gasoline and
trucks, to construct a ball dia-
mond. Part of the company works
on it daily and things are now well
under way. Of course, this Florida
dirt (sand to you) is not suited
for baseball diamond, but the army
makes the best of everything. The
boys call it Paradise Park. I don't
know where they got the name.
Hope the C.O., Capt. Emmett A.
Parrish, will think it's all right.

Well, your lamplight reporter
is going to close for now as he is
on KP tomorrow. Need he say
more?

Yoh have all the rights and priv-
ileges shared by the non-coms who
don't bear the weight of the "T".
By wearing your new stripes you
also assume the responsibilities
and extra duties which come with
your rank.
And, then, how about the non-
coms chow line and mess tent?
They are pretty much congested
'now and it looks as if some -ex-
pansion will have to take place.

Pvt. Turner seems to be doing
a snappy job of his new duty as


mail orderly. Oh yaarr! Sgt. Guth-
rie seems to be standing up pretty
well after a week of married life.
A bit pale, though. It seems that
a certain sergeant in the 564th
metl Mrs. Guthrie, who then was
still a bride-to-be, on a Tampa
bound train which was bearing
him back from a furlough, his
cheeks pinked up some when he
found out that "Julia" married
our First Sergeant. We welcome
home Sergeant Jarrett who has
spent several enlightening weeks
in Atlanta; some babes there, he
tells us. We also bid welcome to
the boys who returned from Athens
after several months absence, Sgt.
Baucum, T/5ths Fisher, Fritz and
Weigandt.

The morale of the men in com
munication company was raised
immeasurably Monday when, after
several weeks of laxity, a .detail
was sent to Clearwater on the Con-
voy with promises that they will be
given such breaks whenever op-
portunity provides in the future.
A further lifting of morale came
from seat number fourteen (a very
reliable source) with news that a
day off each week is to be given.
Better put the ropes back on the
tents!

The prize boner came at 2 a.m.
one morning last week when Sgt.
"Bucko" Barron dreamt he heard
a whistle blow. He jumped out of
bed, turned on the light and start-
ed dressing. calling meanwhile to
his fellow tent-dwellers to "get on
the ball." He was promptly in-
formed of the time in very certain
terms and returned sheepishly to
his slumbers.

not to lose their self-control and
greet the young ladies on the way
with expressions of affection, etc.,
some of the boys to keep from
violating this order ,are thinking
about wearing gas masks on the
next hike.
Three dogs have attached them-
selves to our Regiment and never
fail to join in our hikes. On the
way back from Carrool Lake, the
dogs fell out and were treated for
blisters and exhaustion.

The 501st welcomes to its staff
a newly assigned officer, Captain
A. E. Kaliker.

Sgt. James Wynes of the Medics
was married last week. "Congra-
tulations to you and your wife,
Jimmy and Good Luck!"

Corporal Bill Malone of the
Medics is a happy Corporal these
days. Reason: His wife arrived
from Hackensack, N. J., .and will
live in Tampa for awhile. "Keep
Smiling, Bill!"

One of the most popular men in
our Regiment is the famous Char-
les "Angel" Nassaney. Reason for
popularity-well, ask the boys. He
is known as the one-man army.

THINGS WE DIDN'T KNOW
TIL' NOW
In civilian life ,Pvt. Raymond
Ericson was a music critic for the
Chicago Tribune. During his 3%~
years with the Tribune, he wrote
reviews of concerts given by many
of the World Famous Artists. Pvt.
Ericson attended University of
Chicago and the American Con-
,servatory of Music.
SIn 1926 S/Sergeant Nathan
Holland was the anchor man of
the 4 man relay track team that
represented Stuyvesant H i g h
School in New York City and est-
ablished an Interscholastic and
also Intercollegiate record for the
%1/ mile sprint.

Pfc. Francis E. Norvicki, for the
3rd Reporting Co. reports: Pfc.
Ottieri who has two t's in his
name wil add another "T" very
shortly when he receives his new
technical rating.
Last week was a happy one
for a number of privates who be-
came Pfc's with Specialists Rat-
ings. Congratulations to them.
Pfc Filips said that its great to
get home on a furlough but get-
ting back--well, that's a different
story. He still insists that there
isn't another post like "Toffene-
tes" on Times Square in the heart
of New York City.
Sgt. Nicola wants a telephone
booth installed near his bunk so
that he doesn't have to run around
when that certain Miss calls.
The five happy soldier who
left on their furloughs this week
are Pfc. Quarles, Pfc. Rande, Pvt.
Martin, Pvt. Fleming and Pvt.
Goss.
Pvt. Glasser saw service iith
the French Army.
A hard and sturdy worker in
our Company is Sgt. Simnonson
who will be appointed acting 1st

to you, Sgt. Simmonson."

ed himself an able entertainer and
a friend. Only one bad mark has
defiled his record. When he pulled
C. Q. last week, he was supposed
to arouse all those who were
going on the 25-mile hike at 4
a. 'm. Instead he woke the whole
camp. Many a soldier of this orga-
nization would like to "Snuff"
him out for that.

I wonder if there is anything
possible that we could compare
the chow line to? So help me, if
I have to stand at the Pearly Gates
that way to get in, I never will
make it. Anybody with me?

By the time that this column
appears many a full pocket will
have been emptied. Some fellows
just can't hold on to their cash.
Got a dime, Joe?

Starkle, Starkle, little twink!
Who the hell you are I think?
I'm not under the alcolfluence
incohol,
Altho some thinkle peep I am.
I fool so feelish
I don't know who is me.
The drunker I sit
The longer I think I be.
This little bit of whimsical non-
sense was sent to our 1st Sgt.
Dray by -one of the many fair
maidens he has chosen to enrap-
ture. What does it mean? Was it
"love at first sight" or "luck of
the Irish?"

The whole column this week
seem to be given over to poetry,
but I can't pass this one up.
We're filling the gaps,
And setting the traps,
For coming scraps,
That will change the maps,
Of those yellow saps,
The treacherous Japs.

503rd Plotting Co.


PLUNKS

By Johnny Rebel
The Plotting Company in true
tradition has its roomers and ru-
mors; primarily we are most con-
cerned in offering our sincerest
congratulations to a keen top-
kick, First Sgt. Charles R. Norrish
Jr. He has taken unto himself a
swell girl; unto death do them
part. The best to you both, Sarge.

Hidden talent was exposed Sun-
day afternoon when Pvt. Henry O.
Edwins accepted the challenge of
the pride of the Medics and fought
him to a three-round draw at the
local boxing arena. It is whisper-
ed he will be one the mainstays
of the about-to-be organized Base
Boxing team. Speaking of boxing,
we noticed Sgt. Branson sporting
a patched lip, but he insists it was
the proverbial door.

Have you signed up for your
purchase of Defense Saving
Bonds? The new raise will readily
afford the opportunity to practice
the old axiom of saving for that
rainy day.

Many of our men were caught
drifting down to the 505th area
Friday night. That was their old
outfit .and the prospect of renew-
ing acquaintances was too much
to keep them around.

Have you heard about the Nazi
moron who upon seeking citizen-
ship studied for the Wesserman
Test?

Staff Sgt. Bess: "What did the
alf say to the silo?"
Sgt. Dean: "Dunno. What?"
Bess: "Is my fodder in there?"

CHEWING THE BUGLE
CALL RAG OR HOW
DO YOU, DREW?

By Corporal Mike Dodd
Before saying "I do" to Uncle
Sam several months ago, this
scribbler used to trip a light fan-
tastic over the typewriter keys
for a paper in his home town. Al-
though he feels quite at home
marching through a column, he
must confess that this being his
initial step in an army newspaper
tends to sort of give rise to goose
pimples. But let's dispense with
sticky introductions, and get in
the groove.

He was only a draftsman, but
the draft blew on the nape of his
nedk, and look at him now. All day


finished at taps, what has he got?
A slap stick cartoon depicting
some of his buddies in situations
which, for their own good, would
be better left in the dark. Ah!
but that is life. No kidding, tho,
Don turns out cartoons of merit,
spiced with a unique brand of
humor found only in Hoppe crea-
tions. Pretty soon, you may 'be
seeing some of Don's stuff in this
paper.

Do you have difficulty in ex-
pressing yourself on paper? Can
you always think of the right
word to give the proper shade of
meaning to your thoughts? Then,
the gent you want to see is Pfc.

from his fingers. It was a note
from his One and Only. He wanted
Bill to write a reply. Man, you
should've seen the masterpiece
Holle turned out for the swan. It
fairly oozed and dripped with
sticky sentiment. Such glowing
terms of affection! I'll always re-
gret that I wasn't there looking
over the girl's shoulder when she
read that torrid missive. Betcha
I'd've caught her when she swoon-
ed over backwards, I betcha. By
means of Holle's letters, you, too,
can be popular with the girls. For
a nominal fee, he will do a note-
worthy job for you.

Corporal George Kern, hand-
some redhead, by his own admis-
sion, is the best man in the U.S.A.
Why does he bestow this distinc-

tion upon himself? Well, you see,
it's like this: George is an emi-
nent authority on goats, and when
this company was in New Orleans,
Kern took a fancy to a stray goat
that used to hang around his mess
tent. It was love at first sight. A
fast friendship between the man
and animal blossomed forth with
the rapidity of a recruit dashing
to the orderly room for his first
pass home. Some of the fellows
vowed that there was a striking
resemblence between the corporal
and the beast. Came time for this
outfit to leave New Orleans, and
Kern lost no time having a crate
constructed in which to ship his
twin horned friend. He wanted to
make Billy mascot of the company.
But, sad to relate, Kern's dream
never materialized. Seems a major
got wind of the idea, and Kern
had to depart minus his beloved
friend. "He was one of the best
friends I ever had," sighed the
corporal, brushing a tear from
his cheek.

An essential part of every orga-
nization is a good laundry service.
Our laundry is very capably
handled by an expert in the
business; namely, one Sing Lo
Mann. Sing Lo has won for him-
self an enviable reputation in the
cleaning field. Sing Lo is aware
that khakis must be cleaned and
pressed in a military manner
And that's the way he has 'em
done. Recently, however, there
was a ripple in Sing Lo's long
line of smooth service. A pair of
pants, with a rusty stripe across
the seat, bounced back. "What's
the reason for this?"' barked the
irked soldier, slapping the soiled
trousers on the counter. At first,
Sing Lo was at a loss as to what
sort of explanation to give. But
suddenly, he was seized with an
inspiration. Smiling sweetly, Sing
Lo confided in the soldier: "Oh,
haven't you heard? When a soldier
receives pants from the laundry
"with a stripe on them such as
yours, it's a sure sign that he is
going to make sergeant before the
next new moon. I've never known
it to fail."

So long for now, fellows, and
may your slumber be filled with
furlough-studded dreams.

ARMY TO USE TWO
NEW TYPES OF GLIDERS
FOR TRAINING

Two new training gliders have
been accepted for production by
the Army Air Forces, it was an-
nounced by the War Department
today.
These gliders, 'the XTG-3
(Schweizer) and the XTG-4
(Laister-Kauffmann), are de-
signed to meet the special re-
quirements of the Army Air For-
cess' expanding glider pilot train-
ing program and will be used in
the advanced training schools.
Both are two-place tandem gli-
ders. The wings, fixed and mova-
ble control surfaces, are of wood
construction, fabric covered. The
fuselages are of welded steel tube
construction, also fabric covered.


July 4th, 1942

A different sort of Fourth this year? It's different
all right, but it really means something. Americans
at war celebrate Independence Day ... only instead
of taking a holiday we're fighting all the harder. We
KNOW what we're fighting for. And we know there
can be only one ending-Independence.

CHAT
503rd REGIMENT

By Corporal Morgan

Julius Nappi had quite a pro-
blem last week. After sweating
out a furlough for almost two
weeks it finally came thru but so
did his application for naturaliza-
tion. After careful consideration,
Julie decided to wait until he be-
came a citizen before going home.
Nice work, Julie. That's the stuff
that makes winning teams.

The hard way to see Florida:
Battalion hikes twice a week.

F/Sgt. Bromberg is looking for
contributions 'for their home he is
planning. Either that or twenty-
five cents a man will do very
nicely. Now all he has to do is
get the little chick to say yes.

Overheard in town one night:
A sweet young thing asked her
military companion what the lit-
tle "T" was for under the new
chevrons. The soldiers replied
that it designated touchy non-
coms and all should beware.

Why can't we have more of
those nights such as we had last
Friday?

Many of the men in this com-
pany are worrying about the
chances of paying income taxes,
now that they are high salary
men.

The idea of these early morning
exercises has its good points dur-
ing a deep breathing exercise. I
could hear one lung 'say to the


Greetings, Gates, let's palpitate.
This is Harvey-Samething-New-
Has-Been-Added-Frost saying it's
a wonderful time to be alive and
hoping everybody "out there" feels
the same.
Well, this time we intend to tell
you all that Jackie Searle the kid
movie star is here in Tampa and
will appear in our Friday night
entertainment over WFLA at
nine.

We passed our time up last week
so everybody could hear Kay Ky-
ser at MacDill Field. Hope every-
body enjoyed the 01' Professor's
capers and we're sure they did.
All reports indicate a hearty re-
ception. and except for cases of
acute "cushion consciousness,"
everything was lovely.

Our First Citizen, Corporal O.
Z. Whitehead We wonder
what that Z stands for is to
appear on the Friday at Nine show
this week. The Corporal has been
greatly missed on recent shows and
by extremely popular request O.Z.
is "booked" for this week. We
still wonder what that Z is for

Chaplain O'Brien takes the
Orchid this week for his splendid
work as a "Minute Man" on the
daily Presents program. The Cha-
plain says a mass at 6:15 a. m.
and beats the clock on his way
into town to appear on our devo-
tional every morning. We are
generally on the air when he gets
there and it generally is near his
time to go on. Yes indeedy we
present with pleasure our Orchid
of the week to the Chaplain.

Next Friday we are going to at-
tempt something a little different.
We hope to have some real-life
stories to tell of the horrors and
hardships folks suffer in Axis oc-J
cupied countries, And we hope to
bring to our microphone these
stories from the lips of, refugees
from these countries.

That's all for now fellahs. Take
it easy and listen in Friday next
at Nine. Adios amigos.

soon as he gets paid he is going
to town to get a steak smothered
with pork chops.

Band Notes..

By Pvt. John F. Suszynski

The Air. Force Band is a newly
activated unit at Drew Field and
we have not yet had the chance
to serenade you with notes, but
we can give you some brief notes
about our personnel.

T/Sgt. Lester G. Baker, saxo-
phonist, a native of Kalamazoo,
Mich., came here from MacDill
Field to start the ball rolling. At
present he is in Detached Service,
attending Warrant Officers' Train-
ing School at Fort Myers, Va. We
shall hear more from him, and,
about him, when he comes back a
"Mister."

Sgt. Glenn E. Bitner, trumpeter,
comes from Wilkinsburg, Pa. He
was Chaplain Clark's right hand
man when we got him, and, as
such, he has had the opportunity
to listen to all types of complaints.
So, if you have any complaints
(about the band), just bring them
to the Sarg; he won't mind, (he's
much too happy right now to
mind; you see, his wife just mov-
ed to Tampa from that suburban
Pittsburgh town).

Corp. Elwood F. Eaton, trom-
bonist, is our Actg 1st Sgt. His
home-town is Broadalbin, N. Y.,
and he has a Bachelor of Music
degree from the University of Sy-
racuse where he.played with the
University orchestra and band. He
has been connected with military
bands since joining the armed
forces-first, with the 96th Coast
Artillery Band, Camp Davis, N.
C., and more recently, with the
MacDill Field Band where he was
an important cog in the adminis-
trative as well as the musical .de-
tails of the band. Our fate is in
your hands Corp. GOOD LUCK
TO YOU.

Dots and Dashes

Pvt. Walter Hensen, one of the
most popular soldiers in the Plot-
ting company, is nursing a sore
right hand. After 18 days in the
confines of MacDill hospital, Hen-
sen returned to active duty this
week and his pals literally shook


The American


Soldier's Always


On The Ball



Considerable praise has been
betowed upon our fighting men,
but little has been said about their
foresight. Coming from all walks
of life and endowed with native
intelligence and good schooling,
he American soldier thinks clear-
ly and uses sound judgment.
After retreat he sits down on
his bunk for a few minutes and
figures out the particular problem
confronting him. Invariably he
considers the security of his dear
ones back home as well as what is
in store for him when he returns
to civilian life.
For some time he knew that
War Savings Bonds are sound in-
vestments, but he didn't have
sufficient income to purchase
them. Now that the pay raise is a
reality, he will undoubtedly in-
vest a small sum each month in a
Bond.
The other day two husky buck
privates of the Plotting Company,
564th A. W. Sig. Bn. Sep., who
entered the ranks of the benedicts
prior to their induction in the
Army, were quietly discussing the
Bond situation.
The taller of the two, who hails


nis rignt nana of. from Texas, said: "A good por-
ition of my increase will go to the

Gregory O'Connor had tears in works out the way I've planned,

well. The little Irishman was trans-
ferred to the 503rd Battalion. On
numerous occasions, O'Connor was
oh the blunt end of various jokes,
but the diminutive fellow took
them like a real soldier. The boys
will. really miss O'Connor.

After spending ten days in Dan-.
ville, Ill., Acting Corporal John
Griner is glad to be back in the
harness. He says all ,his friends
are helping Uncle Sam to slap the
Japs.


Private Russell C. Hoier, trumpe-
ters, the former from North
Adams, Mass. (he reads the North
Adams Transcript religiously),
and the latter from Fon du Lac,
Wisconsin. These are the only
two men of our organization you
have had a chance to hear so far.
They are Drew Field's official
buglers (which, according to
Hoier, is the lowest rank of en-
listed man).

The shorter soldier said, "Pal,
how right you are. I'm going to
invest in those bonds, too. I'm
not going to buy as many as you
are, but I'll buy as many as my
pocket permits me."
Just then 'Sergeant Clinton
Preston, who is the big Bond man
of the 564th, marched along. The
tall lad said, "Here's the man who
knows all about those bonds."
Sergeant Preston replied, "I
know the Bonds are the safest in-
vestment on the market today.
You just can't go wrong by pur-
chasing good old U. S. War Sav-
ings Bonds. I hope the boys in the
564th will lead the parade in the

564th Medicos

By Pvt. Motlow

The 564th Medical Detachment
put on its weekly Litter Drill de-
monstration for the members of
the Tampa American Red Cross
Motor Corps. The drill was ably
presented under the direction of
First Lieutenant E. F. Harris and
S/Sgt. W. Simcox.

Pvt. Bever was a near casualty,
