VOL. 1. NO. 20. Published Every Friday Drew Field, Tampa, Florida Friday, July 17, 1942'


SALUTE WITH THE HAND-A good soldier makes it
snappy. Assume the position of attention. Raise your right hand
smartly until the tip of your forefinger touches the brim of your
headdress, above and slightly to the right of your right eye. Keep
your thumbs extended and joined, palm to the left, hand and wrist
straight. Upper arm horizontal and forearm inclined at an angle
of 45 degrees. At the same time turn your head and eyes toward
the person saluted. The second part of this movement consists in
dropping your arm to your side and turning your head and eyes to
the front.


"Necktiesless" Order Inspires

Writing of Drew Field Parable


And so it came to pass that an
order went out of headquarters,
saying that all neckties could be
removed. And verily there was
great rejoicing among the warriors
in the tents and hutments of Drew
Field, and in the barracks too, for
the time of severe heat was upon
them and they were in dire dis-
tress.
But some of the men were wor-
ried and they consulted among
themselves, asking: "Can it be real-
ly thus or is it merely another la-
trinogram?" And they hied them-
selves to the company commander
and said worideringly: "Is it true
what they say about neckties, sir?"
And the company commander as-
sured them it was so, and he quiet-
ed their fears by reading unto them
from the bulletin:
"All officers except staff officers
on duty with troops, and all en-
listed men, except those working
in Base Headquarters, are permit-
ted to dispense with the wearing of
neckties and leave the collar of
their shirts unbuttoned while on
the base. When officers and men
leave the base, except when simu-
lating field conditions on marches,
neckties will be worn."
And the men went away, rejoic-
ing, to spread the word to the fur-
therest reaches of Drew Field. And
they were glad of heart, except one
young man who lay back on his
bunk and complained: "You are
happy, and you have cause, for
the order applieth to yot. But to
me it applieth not, for I work at
Base Headquarters."
And he lamented at great length,
but his comrades paid him little
heed; for their hearts were full.
And presently there could be
seen soldiers of every description
.-privates and corporals, techni-
cians and sergeants, yea, and of-
ficers, too- walking the roads of
the encampment, marching off to
school-all of them without a tie
and with their collars open at the
neck. And they laughed at the
noon-day sun and rejoiceth in their
hearts. "Truly," the y said unto
themselves, "the new dispensation
has arrived."


WHERE, OH, WHERE
ARE MISSING TOOLS?
IN GARBAGE DUMP!

The next time you lose any-
thing, try looking for it at the
garbage dump first. You might
save time. That's what several
soldiers at the Motor Pool de-
cided last week after a frantic
hunt for a box of missing tools
ended successfully at the garbage
dump.
The soldiers had been helping
Dale Jackson, assistant store-
keeper at the motor pool, un-
pack four or five boxes of tools.
They had unpacked and checked
most of them when chow time ar-
rived, so they loaded everything
on a truck and went to mess.
A few minutes after returning
to work, it started to rain and
the men dashed for cover. One
box of tools, partly unpacked,
they left lying beside the truck.
When the rain was over and the
three men returned to finish the
job, this last box was missing,
and with it the tools.
Then followed a frantic hunt
for the missing box, spurred on
by the discovery that the tools
were worth nearly $1,000. Jack-
son and the two soldiers looked
under the truck, in the truck, and
around the truck. They looked
every possible place where the
tools might have been misplaced.
No luck.
Finally, one of the men no-
ticed a garbage can a few feet
from where the box had last been
seen. It was the last remaining
hope. He dashed to the can,
raised the lid hopefully. It was
empty.
The garbage can gave Jackson
a clue however. The garbage de-
tail must have been by recently.
Perhaps, thought Jackson, they
might have mistaken the tools for
. But the two enlisted men
didn't stop to conjecture. They
dashed out in search of the de-
tail. Several hours later, they re-
turned triumphantly to the Motor


THE SHOW IS ON;


MOVIE THEATRE


OPENS TONIGHT


An important addition to the
Base recreational facilities, long
awaited by soldier flicker fans, is
now an accomplished fact. From
now on, thanks to the tireless ef-
forts of Lt. R. H. R. Risley, Base
Theatre Officer, and his staff,
Drew Field soldiers will be able
to enjoy the best of cinematic
fare without journeying into
town.
Lt. Risley has announced that
the doors of Theatre No. 1 will
open for the first time tonight,
July 17, showing on its screen the
feature film, "Lost In the
Pacific."
The theatre will present two
shows nightly, the first at 6 p. m.
and the second at 8 p .m. On
Sunday afternoons a matinee will
be added to the regular showings.
On Saturday the theatre is fea-
turing "Private Buckaroo."

First Wedding in
Lower Chapel Led
By Chaplain Hewlett

Chaplain Carl W. Hewlett,
553rd Regiment Chaplain, was all
smiles on Tuesday. Yes, you
guessed it. It was after conduct-
ing the first wedding ceremony
held in the lower chapel since its
opening, that he beamed all over
Tent City.
The chaplain married Sergeant
Donald D. McDiarmid to the girl
of his dreams, Virginia J. Collins.
Both bride and bridegroom come
from the state of Virginia. After
the wedding the chaplain, the ser-
geant and the bride-well, every-
body's happy.

Base School Officer


MAJOR FORREST H. MUNGER
Experience gained in the prac-
tice of law is applied in a practical
way in military life. Here Major
Munger is shown delivering one
of his interesting lectures which
have proved of benefit to Drew
Field soldiers in the army orienta-
tion course.



Obstacle Course


Taken In Stride


,By Drew Men

During the week the men of
Drew Field have given their ob-
stacle course a terrific beating.
Groups and men of all sizes have
tested their skill and endurance
on the course.
Lt. M. L. McBride, Base Physi-
cal Training Officer, has been sup-
plying the various groups with
the necessary instruction on how
to use the course. After complet-
ing the school of instruction, and


MANY SOLDIERS


WILL BE ABLE TO


VOTE THIS FALL


Since all but four or five states
permit absentee voting both within
and without the borders of the
United States, most Drew Field sol-
diers should be able to record their
choices in the forthcoming elec-
tions if.they can overcome the va-
rious handicaps imposed by the
length of time it takes for a ballot
to'go from their state to the field
and then back again.
In a recent summary of voting
conditions, The Army Times points
out that absentee laws are steadily
becoming more uniform, although
wide divergencies still exist. Some
states do not specify how voting
may be done, others have legislated
special provisions for voting, while
others require ballots to be collect-
ed on the spot.
Massachusetts and North Dakota
have laws requiring that ballots be
mailed to those outside the state
on military duty. Florida, Ken-
tucky, Louisiana and New Mexico
have not approved provisions for
absentee balloting, a nd there is
some disagreement as to whether
or not Indiana's law permits mem-
bers of the armed forces not sta-
tioned on federal soil to vote. Mis-
sissippi and South Carolina have
recently adopted absentee voting
statutes while Louisiana adopted a
constitutional amendment in 1936
providing for absentee voting by
mail.
Service men are allowed to vote
under ordinary absentee privileges
in these states: Alabama, Arizona,
California, Colorado, Georgia,
Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Okla-
homa, Oregon, Rhode Island, Ten-
nessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Vir-
ginia, Washington, West .Virginia,
Wisconsin and Wyoming.
States in which specific provision
is made for voting by mail are
Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Mis-
sissippi, Missouri, Montana, Neb-
raska, New Jersey, New York,
North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania
and South Carolina. States which
will attempt to collect ballots on
the spot are Arkansas, Delaware,
Illinois, and South Dakota. New Hampshire
permits absentee voting only for
presidential candidates.
At the annual governor's confer-
ence at Asheville, N. C., recently,
Undersecretary of War Robert P.
Patterson promised that. the army

Pool with the missing tools. Jack-
son had guessed right. The box
and tools had been picked up
by the garbage detail by mistake,
carried to the garbage dump and
was on the point of joining a
great heap of refuse when the
men on the detail discovered the
mistake.


Me COUFue, W n a a
the various obstacles certainly
test their strength, endurance,
balance, skill, and agility.
Three of the most interesting
and challenging obstacles on the
course are the parallel bars, the
rope climb, and the high wall.
There has been a great deal of
spirited competition between the
men in testing their skill on these
three obstacles.
It will be interesting to see
which organization on the field
will produce the individual rec-
ord for the obstacle course; which
organization will have the fastest
average time; which organiza-
tion will have the fastest six man
relay team, etc. The course will
produce competition between men
and companies, besides aiding
tremendously to condition and
develop the endurance of all
personnel.


to assist voting in fall elections by
soldiers who would ordinarily vote
at home. He said that through the
cooperation of the secretaries of
state of the various states, lists
would be supplied to local election
boards which will send ballots to
the troops.
Meanwhile soldiers are being in-
formed they can obtain all voting
information by writing to the secre-
taries of state of their respective
states.

AN ARMY CHIEF SPEAKS
Army Chief of Orditance, Gen.
Campbell, stated in a speech at
Salisbury, N. C.: "The so-called
'New German 88 MM gun' is
about as secret as a Daisy water
pistol. It has been known to us
and our Allies for at least 10
years. We outmatch this gun with
several of our field and antitank
guns."

Congratulations to all the men


9th Fighters

By CPL. MIKE DODD
Greetings and salutations! This
week, your corporal (not a T
Model) is blissfully enjoying a va-
cation in the tranquil mountains
of Tennessee. It's going to be a
pleasure to shed my G. I. shoes
and trot about the countryside in
my barefootsies. No use trying;
I'll never get used to wearing
shoes. They're a bit out of my
line.

Many soldiers regard M.P.'s as
hard and stern men who often
reprimand in a not too light man-
ner. Personally, I've always hit it
off smoothly with our military
policemen, and think they're
swell fellows, but there are some
whose relations with these fellows:
have been none too pleasant. To
get to my point, if you don't like
M.P.'s now, however, you'll prob-
bably change your mind if you
happen to meet a certain one at
the east gate. This courteous M.P.


on their new ratings! mounts the incoming and outgo-
I owe an apology to Mike and ing buses with a cheerful greeting


Max Dut for calling them privates
last week. My mistake. It's Pfc.!
As Capt. Bond is our C. O., I
think we should be known as the
Bond boys. Which' reminds me,
you fellows can get bonds from
S/Sgt. Bloom.
I want to thank Capt. Bond on
behalf of the whole company for
allowing us to have a P.X. during
our confinement-or haven't you
heard the story about those mad
two weeks?
Some of you guys have spurs
that jingle jangle jingle and with
the new jingle the Army now
pays, you had better watch out.
The first night out you would
think that a bunch of normal,
healthy men would seek the com-
pany of the ever-adorning female.
But the answer is no. Instead all
the men we've talked to spent the
evening eating steaks.
We wish Sgt. Luther success in
OCS. We know you can make it,
Sgt.
Pfc. Pixley, our engaging
welterweight, invited S/Sgt.
O'Malley and Pfc. Cristani over
for supper the other night. On
the way Mike had "eight beers
with the wrong kinda man" and
never showed up at Pixley's
House. 'So this week Max is in-
viting Mike and the other guy to
make sure that Mike gets there.
SThe best story ever in our esti-
mation is the one about our two
personnel clerks who are 'respon-
sible for making up the month-
ly pay-roll. It seems that last
month, Pfc. Mardian had himself
red-lined because he was a spe-
cialist. Then just to show that
Mardian wasn't the only`man who
could pull that stunt, Pvt.
Schultz, the other personnel
clerk, red-lined himself on the
supplemental pay-roll this month.
How 'bout that red-line?
Second best story is about one
Pvt. Smith who went on sick call
one morning. His complaint? He
was seeing spots before his eyes.
The 1st Sgt., hearing this, remem-
bered that Smith spent the
morning after pay-day in bed, so
he advised him to change his
brand. And we don't mean
cigarettes!

and thanks the soldiers indi-
vidually when he checks their
passes. That duty completed, he
thanks the soldiers collectively.
And upon leaving the bus, he also
thanks the driver. Recently, I
overheard this friendly M.P. say
he was trying his best to make a
good M.P. We salute hit for
achieving marvellous success.
May he reach the top.

I'm sort of partial when it
comes to Tennessee, because it is
where I hang my hat when not
soldiering. Some of the finest
soldiers have come from Tennes-
see. The most handsome soldier
in Drew Field hails from the
beautiful mountain country of
Tennessee. He is Sgt. Roscoe
Stovall and, boys, let me tell you,
don't ever invite your girl to
visit Tampa. One look at him and
you are on the loose again. Every-
body likes Roscoe, especially
when they are low on cash, for
a few hands of cards with him and
they are back in the money again.
Roscoe was) a school teacher and
he bemoans the fact he had to
come to the Army so soon, as
there was one particular girl in
his class he was sweet on. She
had been in his clasq five years
and he said they expected to an-
nounce their marriage as soon as
she passed to the fourth grade.

By LARRY RALSTON
The boys of Sig. Hqs. have fin-
ished a tennis court. Some work
still remains to be done on the
ball diamond as left field is still
a little "beat up." The boys are
also planning a badminton course
for those who like miniature
tennis.

The Sig. Hqs. & Hqs. Co. has
recently been added to the West
Coast League. The team will play
such teams as the MacDill Flyers,
Lakeland, Drew Interceptors, etc.

Our team won a nice ball game
from the 564th Sig. Bn. from
Tent City recently by the score of
6 to 5. The game was played at
Plant Park and a good crowd
made up the cheering section.
The boys from the Base started
off in the first with a run and
came back with a pair of runs in
the third and three in the fourth.
The 564th scored in the third
when they pushed a single run
across the plate. It was not until

686 Spec. Rept.

By A/SGT. ARNO JUSTMAN
We have one soldier in our out-
fit who is a most versatile man.
If at any time a handy man is
needed, just give us a buzz.and we
shall send up acting Sgt. Erwin-
Major-Domo to you.
Your raving reporter wishes to
state at this time that he has
transferred; he also wishes to
state that for one swell company
to be in the one he left is allright
as far as he is concerned. A swell
outfit and one nice bunch of
fellows.
"Pvt. Sihirtzer, paging Pvt.
Shirtzer." That is getting to be a
slogan in this company. And,
brother, when you think you are
capable of making new alibis just
get together with this Pvt. The
last time, he was having a picture
made early in the morning on the
post. Where, oh, where could
that be?
Like the old cry of timber, the
cry of water rang out on the fetid
air here late this afternoon. This
was really a red letter day as we
got both water and lights on the
same day and shortly after the
S.R.O. sign was out as all the
men in the barracks were waiting
for that glorious tingle of water
on hot and sweaty skin. It was a
good thing we got the water, too,
because we found out we were
harboring a 'couple of Carusos.
By this time you men will be
getting the idea we are kind of
cocky. Well, we are, as we think
we have one neat outfit here. We
have a man who sort of ambled
around the obstacle course in the
sweet time of one-and-one-half
minutes. Yeah, he did!
Man of the week is none other
than Pvt. Green and not only is
he the man of the week 'but also
the most envied man in this com-
pany .Yessir, riding around in a
new Lincoln with a very comely
girl is not to be laughed off in
this man's town.
Hats off to the man who did
away with the ties. Sure would
be nice if we were able to roll
up our sleeves now and really hit
the ball.
After hearing all sorts of talk,
and all very flattering, I decided
that the subject should be invest.
gated, and, brother, was that a
pleasure! Yes, it concerned that
very lovely and most charming
personality who works in the
P.X. near Green Gables. Who is
she, what is she like, what is her
name? Well, men, the next time
you should by chance be in the
near vicinity drop in and ask for
Dorothy. Tell her that he raving
reporter sent you. That's the way
I met her.
Well, thanks for the chat and
we shall get together next week.
Remember, 686 is open for the
duration, so how about hearing
from youse guys in the way of
some 'ball games or what have
you?

One of our higher ranking ser-
geants pulled this one on us:
Question: What is a keybird?
Answer: A keybird is a bird
that perches at the North Pole
each day and chirps key, key, key-
ripes, it's cold.
Corny isn't it?
One of our ambitious reporters,
Pvt. Milton Cronbaugh, brought
in this item. During a crash land-
ing in preparation for the emerg-
ency, an ambulance drove through
the field with siren blaring and
T/5th J. T. Thompson and Cpl.
T. F. Kelly dispatched all the
trucks in the motor pool to their
alert stations. Boy, are they on
the ball.
At about this point of prepara-
tion for the deadline that old
debbil lightning' struck and
blacked out he camp; we couldn't
even see to sweep the water out of
the tents. S/Sgt. Williams hap-
pened to be holding on to his bed
at the time and, I'm told, he
jumped at least six feet into the
air.
Have you seen the new ping-
pong table that was built for us
by our company carpenter, T/4th
Arnold Muller? It's a slick job
and is set up in the alert tent.
T/4th Douglas Moses is now in
charge of athletic activities and
is going to start tournaments in
ping pong, softball and horse-
shoe pitching. Get your practice
in now and sign up on Monday.
We hear that Pvt. Louie Calcat-
terra received a rabbit as a pres-
ent from .his girl friend. What
are you feeding him now, Louie,
G. I. chow? Pvt. John Patrick
leads quite a band in tent 14
every evening. Come over and
have your requests played, but
please throw your butts in the
can. How about Pv. John Cannon
coming over to render his version
of "The Old Age Pension Blues."

NOTES


By PVT. ROBERT M. HENNING
We are fortunate to have as
1st Sgt., Barnett Kessler, who al-
ways makes the boys happy with
his inspiring words of comfort.
To hear him talk we would think
the future holds nothing but hap-
piness for us.

Talent has no limit for the
685th boys. Most any of us are
experts when it comes to KP, but
Pvts. Charles Aby and Elbert
Cummings are experts at playing
poker. But they limit their money
to 35c each.

Our supply department is very
large, especially with Pvt. Clar-
ence Kus in it. Gosh, he's the big-
gest chow-hound you ever saw.

The entire company wishes a
speedy recovery for Lt. Nyberg,
who is suffering an attack of ap-
pendicitis. Here's hoping we see
you soon, Lt!

Pvt. Joseph Rudnicki is cur-
rently beaming with joy and we
know why. You'd be too, if your
one and only-. Say Joe, how
about showing her all those other
pictures you carry in your wallet?

Hats off to Cpl. Earl Prue who

NEWS
miimiI i lIi[llIII mllhlI i li. ImIiiE liiiii ii llrr iii EII minlli
By PVT. J. D. SANDIFER
We appreciate the opportunity
for this first contribution to The
Echoes. We have been reading the
paper with interest and enjoy-
ment since our arrival at the post.
Like The Echoes the 1st Report-
ing Company is a live-wire or-
ganization, and we hope to be
mutually helpful.
Heartiest congratulations go to
Tech. 4th grade Flavil C. Elrod
who recently received the thrill-
ing news that he and Mrs. Elrod
are the parents of a lovely little
daughter. Some of us are wonder-
ing if this automatically makes
our grand old man, the captain,
grandpapa.
Tech. 5th grade Signey Zang's
spirits were boosted by the visit
of his brother who is in the air
corps and stationed at Maxwell
Field. A good looking brother
you have, Sid. Now we know
where the family good looks
went.
Quite a few of us attended di-
vine worship on the post Sunday
morning. We were particularly
delighted to see and' welcome to
the 505th its own chaplain, Chap-
lain W. A. Thompson. We were
also inspired by the beautiful solo
brought by his very attractive
wife.
Envy of the company these
days are Sgt. Raymond T. Vallely,
Cpl. David L. Ross, and Pvt. Eu-
gene C. Sparks, who are vaca-
tioning-or do we have to be
military and say furloughing -
in New York, South Carolina,
and North Carolina, respectively.
It's a long, man-size stride
from the grade of private to
lieutenant, but it has happened in
this, the 1st Reporting Company,
which is noted for its "on the
ball" method of doing things. Our


congratulations and best wishes
are yours, Pvt. (but not for long)
George W. Hightower.
The source of Sgt Morton H.
Zucker's happiness lies in the
visit of the dear little woman,
Mrs. Zucker, who came south
from New York.
Staff Sgt. Raymond Brumback
obviously believes in the old law,
"an eye for an eye." Ye olde
scribe found him Sunday evening
sitting by the bedside of a fellow
soldier and holding a brightly
burning flashlight in the face of
the unhappy victim, who was
guilty of a previous misdemeanor
on Sgt. Brumback. Being so
robbed of one's precious sleep
and rest is nothing short of vil-
lanous, but remember, Tech. 5th
Joe Burns, crime never pays!
These practice marches aren't
half bad, are they fellows? With
a lake, a picnic lunch, and all the
fun we have going and coming,
they're almost like those glorious
4th of July escapades back home.
Or did I hear a loud, long "boo?"
So long, 'til next week, soldiers.
In the meantime don't forget to
let your reporter have any news
items of interest.

The one-ring circus was visit-
ing among the hills. The folks
recognized a1ll the instruments of
the band except the slide trom-
bone.
One old settler watched the
player for quite some time, then,
turning to his son, said: "Don't
let on that you're watching him.
There's a trick to it; he ain't
really swallerin' it."

Some of these soldiers on the
Post have found out that the lo-
cal civilian girls are well schooled
in defense, too.
"You look good enough to
eat," said he.
"I do eat," said she. "Let's go."

Guest: "Well, good night. I
hope I haven't kept you up too
late."
Host (yawning): "Not at all.
I'd be getting up soon anyway."

CPL. ANDREW PATERSON
Five defeats out of 16 games!
That's what anyone would call
good ball playing. We now enter
the new league at the field with
six consecutive wins to our credit,
and tonight we tangle again with
the Base Medics. Tuesday night
we journeyed to Palm River Park,
where again we defeated the local
team by the score of 12-4. It was
the consensus of the team that
this was the best game played
this season. There Vas no indi-
vidual star; credit goes to the
team as a whole. Watching them
play reminded us of a West Point
dress parade-precision, snap, an
errorless unit.

Suffice to say, the Obstacle
Course was met and conquered.
Instead of dreading the thought
of our weekly tilt, the men are
looking forward with keen antici-
pation in proving "man over
man-made 'obstacles." The course
is a perfect example of man beat-
ing his own invention. First he
invents obstacles, then does his
utmost to conquer them, and, by
doing so, personally gains in one
form or another. He either beats
his own invention, or he is smart
enough to conceive something
that he himself cannot lick. After
such deep thinking, you tell me-
just where do we stand?

Lucky, lucky Thais. Pvt. John
N. Thais was one of the happiest
bucks on the field this week.
The reason-a visit from Mrs.
Thais, and a three day pass. What
else could ai man ask for? They
visited St. Pete, and Mrs. Thais is
scheduled to leave for Baltimore
Saturday. Pfc. Atwell also landed
a coveted three day pass to spend
with "the girl from home,"
but we understand he was well
chaperoned.

Congratulations to the follow-
ing men who have just completed
their respective courses at the
Motor School: Pvts. Mancini,
Di'Angelo, Pasternak, Marshall,
Plummer, Petrilak, Toner and
Pfc. Taylor. The men showed
their willingness to learn and all
emerged with excellent records.
Don't forget to frame the
diplomas!

Our men are sure gunning for
OCS and passing the board exams
without much difficulty. If they
are all accepted, as they deserve
to -be, we'll be lucky to have
enough men left for a good soft-
ball team. Here's hoping for all
those that are waiting and hoping.

327 Service Squadron
By PFC. T. G. MEO
If any of our soldiers are seen
around camp wearing shoes that
are sizes too big, don't blame it
on the quartermaster of his in-
duction center. He is one of the
boys who sleep in Barracks No.
413. It seems that every night
their shoes have an outing and
don't get back to their rightful
owner. Why does "Muscles" Cum-
mings blush when we talk about
these things?

Sgt. Ward, first cook in Kitch-
en No. 5, has just come back from
his furlough in North Carolina.
What a break the girls got upon
his arrival. He told us he gained
much knowledge from his visit.
He didn't tell us though how he
went home with dollars and came
back with cents.

Now that we have started our
group soft-ball league, the old
327th Service Sq. will be in there
pitching all the way for the
championship.

There is no place like home,
but there is a good substitute if
you stop in at the Servicemen's
Recreation Center, 3051/2 Water,
and see for yourself. There you
will find all the comforts of
home-lounge room, game room
and dancing and if you are bash-
ful about your dancing, they have
instructors. Also for you photo
fans. You now have a dark room
to develop your own pictures.
The club is open from 10 a. m.
until? We'll be looking for you.

564th Medicos

By Pvt. DAN E. MOTLOW
The 564th Medical Detachment
has been endeavoring to put on a
tent demonstration for the officers
of the Medical Detachment for the
last week, but up to the present
has had to issue "rain checks"
daily.
T/Sgt Katz is putting on train-
ing films for the officers in the
new theater building. You can now
see the shows without the addi-
tional "steam bath" which was a
sideline in the mess tent shows.
After seeing the following head-
line in the Echoes, "Drew men can
take ladies to Honeymoon Isle,"
Pvt. Landry says he is ready to
catch the boat just as soon as he
finds a girl.
Pvts Rider, Robertson and Ma-
roney have received their PFC rat-

REPORTS

By PFC. HARRY J. ZIGUN
The Navy Mother's Club of
Tampa was a place of great ex-
citement Saturday night when
soldiers, sailors and marines
crowded the place for the usual
Saturday night dance. At 9 p. m.,
the boys and their girl friends
witnessed the marriage of Sgt.
Michael Donnelly, of Hqs. Plot-
ting Co., and Kareen Lee Averett.
Chaplain Amos L. Boren offi-
ciated. The bride was given away
by Lt. Comm. R. M. Chambers,
U.S.N., and Pvt. Leland Maker
was best man. Congratulations to
you both, Sgt. and Mrs. Donnelly.

The men of the 501st acknowl-
edge the efficiency of the air mail
clerks. Sgt. Anthony C. Triscari,
Sgt. Angelo Del Quadro, Cpl. Don
Coccoza, and Pvt. Orville Wied-
man are doing .a good job. Keep
up the good work, fellows, and
bring us lots and lots of letters.

The Regt. welcomes Colonel
Stanford of the 504th, who re-
places Major J. C. Hardwick as
Commandant of Plant Field.

A busy and hard-working group
is that of the message center with
S/Sgt. Maurice Simon in charge,
aided by Sgt. Frank Waczinski,
Cpl. John Marycz, Cpl. Leo, Car-
rara, Cpl. Isadore Deshefsky, Cpl.
William Popp and Pvt. Bernard
Theigs.

Sgt. Hubbel, of Hqs. Co., is
back with us after a brief illness
at the hospital.

Our Sunday services have a
new and interesting feature. The
services are preceded by 30 min-
utes of Sunday school class with
a Biblical story, lesson and dis-
cussion. The large attendance at
the chapel indicates the interest
of the men in these religious
programs.

THINGS WE DIDN'T KNOW
TILL NOW: When the 501st was
formed at Fort Dix, N. J., T/Sgt.
Walter Lantz became its first re-
gimental clerk. Before his induc-
tion Sept. 22, 1941, he served as
junior officer in the CCC camps.
He was associated with the C's for
several years. At present, Sgt.
Lantz is awaiting further notice
from his OCS application sub-
mitted for the Air Force Admin-
istrative School. He has been ac-
cepted by the board.

By PVT. CHARLES KAISER
A stranger walking down tent
row 875 would think, "Here is a
veteran company."
Sgt. Israel conducted a detail
on a tour of the base. All places
of interest were visited. Of course,
the fact they were sent out to
bring certain items back, and
couldn't find the right building
shouldn't be mentioned in this
item.
Why is it that whenever you
see Pvt. Cohen walking around
you are reminded of that old
song, "Did You Ever See .A
Dream Walking?" We haven't
found out yet what the culinary
specialty of Mess Sgt. Bongio-
vanni is, but we hope it's apple
pie. Inquiring around when
the boys came off the range, we
decided we must have some re-
markable shooters in this outfit.
We couldn't find anybody with a
score under 90. .. Do Supply Ser-
geants Welsko and McCann have
to mend all those socks that are
turned in for salvage? We
wonder when Privates Klempa
and Inkrot will find out that it
isn't possible to drink all the beer
in Tampa? .. Sgt. Chapter, take
notice! You are missing a good
bet in not having Pvt. Joseph R.
Giustizia lead the company in
calisthenics. If he leads us the
way he leads a girl around in a
jitterbug dance at the U.S.O., we
would get enough exercise in five
minutes to last us for a week.

The Communications Company
is pleased with the appointment
of another of its members to at-
tend Officers' Candidate School
at Fort Monmouth, N. J. We
know Cpl. Doyle D. Stickel will
make a very good officer. Cpl.
Stickel is our sixth candidate to
date; not 'bad, eh!
Sgt. Hubert A. Barton reported
back to our outfit today, much
wiser in more than one way. He
is a confirmed Rebel who got wise
at Monmouth and married a Yan-
kee girl. We hope that she has
changed Lefty's mind about
northerners.
S/Sgt. McCormick is planning
to take that final leap into the pit
of matrimony next month. If he
leaps, the boys are all looking for-
ward to that barrel of beer he
is going to buy for us. He has
even gone so far as to try and get
Sgt. Homer Henderson to leap at
the same time. What's the matter
with you, Sgt. "Joe?"

,DREW FIELD ECHOES


To America's heroes .
Those who fought for our nation when it was
only the vague idea of a promised land, those who bat-
tled to keep it whole when internal strife threatened its
unity, those who shed their blood in the first great
bloody conflict for the preservation of democracy,
those who gallantly gave their best on all the battlefields
where their nation was threatened.
To the men and women of Valley Forge and
Bunker Hill, those of Antietem and Gettysburg, the men
of the Alamo, those of San Juan. To all who went


through the hell of Argonne, Sedan, Belleau Woods, and
Chateau Thierry.
And especially now that America fights in the
war of survival, to her battle-fallen of Pearl Harbor,
Bataan, Corregidor and Wake. To her sea and airmen
of the Coral Sea and Midway. To Chennault's Flying
Tigers and the men who celebrated the 4th of July with
a daylight raid on Germany-
A toast to their loyalty, their courage and brav-
ery. A promise of support from their homeland and a
pledge for America's certain victory.

By CPL. JOHN F. SUSZYNSKI
La-di-da; hi-de-ho; raz-a-ma-
taz; and all that stuff-Band
Notes turns out to be Society
Notes this week.
Mr. and Mrs. James Booth, par-
ents of our newly-acquired Pvt.
Gordon 0. sooth, hosted our
gang last Saturday at an outing
on their St. Pete estate. The boys
lost no time going native. Some
of the furrinerss" from up north
tried to shake the oranges off the
trees (like they do apples back
home). Pvt. John Hession was
finally persuaded to climb the
ladder and show us how oranges
should be picked.
Badminton, archery, and dart
games followed. No one was hurt
during the dart .games, but the
garage doors took an awful beat-
ing. At badminton, Pfc. Plante
turned out to be the endurance
champ (I'm not saying anything
about his playing form) but, the
next day well, he is still tired.
All was calm and serene until
the archers started demonstrat-
ing some long distance marks-
manship ( ), shooting at cross
angles over the badminton court
The objective seemed to change
from the target to anyone or any-
thing that dared come in sight.
Though there was no ALERT
sounded, suddenly everyone start-
ed to run for cover-everyone,
except Sgt. Bitner (yep, he was
playing Robin Hood).
There was some "informal"
dancing-211-pound Pvt. Costello
and 120-pounder Pvt. Krewson
made up a formidable jitter-bug
team tch, tch, tch.
While all this was going on,
there was something cooking in
another corner of the area-Food
(Ha! Ha!-joke's over). Your
scribe started out as the cook, but
had to doff his chef's cap to Pfc.
Regis, and then proceeded to
drown his sorrow with hamburg-
ers and orange juice-modesty
forbids that the title of "Wimpy"
repose where it rightly belongs,
and so it goes to Pfc. Hoier (don't
get too chesty, Russ; you only
got it by forfeit). Some of us
were scarred and bruised in the
skirmishes that accompanied the
feasting, but Pvt. Schiavone was
the only one to be branded; Pfc.
Regis did it with the poker that
was used to keep the charcoal
fire burning in the outdoors' fire-
place (Joe insists thatit was an
accident-I'm not so certain that
it was).
Sgt. Eaton was crowned the
watermelon-eatin'est guy. Lucky
for the rest of us that the Sarge
had a splitting headache that day';
otherwise, none of us would have
gotten any watermelon.
I nearly forgot;. we took Pvt.
Booth along with us too.
THANK YOU, MR. and MRS.
BOOTH; we certainly enjoyed
your hospitality.

Prescriptions

By Cpl. ARTHUR A. GISMONDI

After several weeks of work at
the old dispensary where we have
been handling sick call, everything
is working out fine and we have
had a number of compliments for
the way things are handled. Sgt.
McGraw, late of the Base Dispens-
ary and just recently back from
school in Washington, D. C., is now
in charge. Under his capable guid-
ance and with the full cooperation


Sub-Depot Subs

All the Sub-Depot anxiously
awaited the "Drew Echoes" last
week and were pleased to become
a part of the newsy end.
Delicious smells zoom into our
offices, when the wind's right,
from the 314th Air Base Sq.
kitchen, especially when Lt. Bost-
wick has roast beef.
Sub-Depot is equipped with a
Teletalk System now. It's won-
derful. Everyone hears every-
thing so no one has any secrets.
We all wear the same uniforms,
so what is left to do but work;
one can't swap tales or admire the
other's clothes.
Never yet found anything
Marsha Beach couldn't do in re-
gards to supply and the mysteries
of any machine. And she always
has a smile along with it.
You won't find many offices
equipped with personalities with
sharp sturdy brains as Mr. Ander-
son, Mr. Nippert, Mr. Hackney
and Mr. O'Brien-all supervising
our Stock Record Section.
Mr. Griffith, Supervisor of the
OEL and MR Section, is the man
to see if you have lost a horse
or found a rope. We'll bet he
knows who belongs to it.
Charlie Spaduzzi is doing O. K.
for himself. Very shortly he is
moving up front to become one
of our bosses.
Evidently Mr. Ashton must be
a pretty big stockholder in the
Wrigley Gum Co., as he likes his
female helpers to be gum chewers.
Ladies, stop being "goils."
James C. Brady took a trip to
Selma, Ala., and came back with
a spanking new wife. Are all the
girls chagrined?
Bob Porton left his orchestra
boys for the daytime and is toot-
ing his horn as Supervisor of
Unit No. 1, Stock Record Section.
Lorraine Meador.'s symptoms
had symptoms, so she has really
been ill for days.
Lieut. Coward of "Soth Colina"
sure has an engaging smile, but,
alas, he is married. He is our new
Base Tech. Supply Inspector and
he really doesn't make a noise
like a Second Lieut.


of the 309th Medics, things should
run even better.
By the time this is published our
Medical Officer, Lt. Richard Rice,
should be back from a five-day
leave. He went home to attend the
marriage of his brother and to
spend a few days at his home in
Rhode Island.
Pvt. Mitchell Skorupa, who came
throu gh his operation in fine
shape, stopped long enough at
Drew Field to pick up a 20-day
convalescent and hop a train for
his home in Chicago. He should
come back fit to lick his weight in
Japs.
Congratulations are in order for
Pfc. Joe Kozloski who got his sur-
prises in a bunch. First he was
promoted to 5th Grade Technician
the 9th of this month; then two
days later he was notified to get
ready to attend O.C.S. Medical Ad-
ministrative. Good Luck, Joe!
Congratulations are also in order
for Pvts. Casey, Jones and Schultz
who climbed the first step up the
ladder. How does it feel to have


your first stripe, men?

Sterba. The score was 10-6. Um-
pires: Capt. Welling, balls and
strikes; Capt. Walsh, bases.

The 501st soft ball team in
their first time out suffered an
8-0 shut-out at the hands of the
MP Corps. Cpl. Holmes is confi-
dent that with a few minor
changes and a few more practice
sessions, his 501st men will put
up a good battle next Sunday.

saw a certain P V T out on the

trying to roll up the white line in
the road. Add tidbit of advice ....
Don't tech that stuff. So long for

ment is in the motion picture

films for the new Medical Officers
of Drew Field. At least we try
to, for each time we got started,

Brown limited the Craters to

Cochrane and Klimczak led
the Interceptors' attack with two

The Craters scored a single
tally in the third on a hit by
Turner, an error and a fielder's
choice. Drew came back in the
sixth inning with singles by
Firkser, Cochrane and Klimczak
knotting the count. The Inter-
ceptors went ahead in the seventh
on a hit by McMennan, a base on
balls to Grabosky and an outfield
fly.
The game with the Craters
was the fourth meeting of the two
teams, with the Craters losing all
four, three by the shut-out route.
McMennan of Drew attempted to
steal home in the seventh and
was called out on a close play

Winning Streak

DREW NINE HAD WON 11
STRAIGHT GAMES

The Interceptors' winning
streak was brought o a halt
Thursday after 11 straight wins
by the U.S.P.P. nine in a close
3-2 game on the East Tampa
diamond.
.Captain DeForest's hustling
team had rolled up 11 straight
victories before this game, and
could have made it an even dozen
with a couple of well-placed hits.
They outhit the winners, 10 to 6,
but couldn't get their base-
knocks with runners on the paths.
Lefty Brown hurled for the
Interceptors, and did a good job
of stopping the powerful Coast
league outfit. But his mates
couldn't back up his six-hit
mound job.
Drew sent a tally across in
their half of the first on hits by
Howell and Klimczak, along with
an error and a wild pitch. The
Phosphates came right back with
two runs in their half of the in-
ning to take the lead.
The Phosphates increased their
lead in the fourth by adding a
single run on two hits.
In the ninth the Interceptors
put on a last inning rally that
fell one run short of tying the
score. Singles by Bekeza, Mc-
Mennan and Firkser accounted
for one run in the final frame.
Todd, Klimczak, McMannan,
and Cochrane banged out two hits
each.

Saturday where they lost a close
game to the Food Machinery nine
of Lakeland by a score of 2 to 0.
Food Machinery is the leading
team in the West Coast league
and semi-pro ball in this section
of the state. *
Sgt. Fred Swindells, of Drew,
and .Foots Norris, of Lakeland,
hooked up in a mound duel for
six innings without either side
able to dent the rubber.
Food Machinery broke the ice
in the seventh by shoving across
two runs on four hits, to win the
ball game. Swindells gave up one
other hit in the fourth for Lake-
land's five hits.
Firkser banged a double for the
Interceptors in the seventh but
died on the base. Cochrane and
Klimczak got the other two
knocks for the soldiers.
Swindells pitched a good game
all the way with the exception of
the seventh when Food Machinery
bunched all their hits for the two
runs.
The score:
R H E
Drew ......000 000 000-0 3 3
