12 Years' Faithful

Service Rewarded

With A Commission

It's no longer Master Sergeant
H. Bell, but Lieutenant Bell.
,tall, lean-limbed, genial, asce-
Iic-featured South Carolinian was
commissioned a second lieutenant
yesterday.
Lt. Bell's commission culminates
a career of 12-years' service as an
enlisted man. Only 34 years old
now, he entered the Army on No-
vember 21, 1929, at Columbia, S.
C., after leaving his job in a tex-
tile mill in his home town of Ab-
beville, S. C. Since then he has
soldiered for three years in the
Hawaiian Islands, seven years at
Barksdale Field, La., two years at
MacDill Field (where he was
among the first men who set foot
on it), and since February at Drew
Field.
Since March, 1930, he has work-
ed in Air Corps Supply and is thor-
oughly trained in this phase of air
corps materiel. For that reason,
in March of this year, he was
placed in charge of the Tech Sup-
ply department of the 327th Serv-
ice Squadron. He is leaving a
smooth-functioning department be-
hiid him, the result of training
and efficient handling of men.

Soldiers May 4

College

If your college education was
blighted by the long arm of the
Selective Service or you would
like to take some college work
while you are in the Army-here's
your chance.
Under the provisions of a recent
Army regulation, enlisted men
with not less than four months
active service, may pursue college
courses by correspondence while
in the Army. The Army Institute,
at Madison, Wisconsin, offers 65
courses that will contribute to a
soldier's military efficiency. Sgt.
Wilber D. Somers, recently trans-
ferred to OCS from the 690th
Signal AW, Frontier Co., was the
first soldier to send in a complete
lesson from Drew Field.
This opportunity for academic
endeavor is offered to soldiers un-

Noted Orchestra

Arranger Now In

Air Force Band

Although "Bud" Estes, noted
orchestra arranger for Jimmy
Dorsey, Alvino Rey, Charlie Bar-
rett, and other name bands, has
been known as Private Lewis
Estes since his induction into the
Army, his occupation still remains
the same.
From such best-seller arrange-
ments as "Deep In The Heart Of
Texas" and "Me And My Melinda,"
Estes has shifted his interest to
the composition of Drew Field
anthems and blues. The arrange-
ment that Private Estes made for
Alvino Rey of "Deep In The Heart
Of Texas" outsold every record of
that tune on the market. In the
year that Estes was with Alvino
Rey, the orchestra made over 60
records, all of which were ar-
ranged by Estes.
Estes comes from Boston, but
has done most of his arranging in
and around New York. Inducted
in March, 1942, he was sent to
Mitchell Field, L. I., where he
played in the band. At Drew Field,
Private Estes is attached to the
Air Force Band.


"BAD BOY" OF

MOVIES LEAVES

FOR O. C. SCHOOL

He's off to an Officers' Candi-
date School, is Sergeant John
Searl, of Plant Field. Sgt. Searl is
better known as Jackie Searl, the
boy movie actor who was typed as
a brat during most of his screen ca-
reer, appearing as such in all but
one p i c t u r e, "The Unwelcome
Stranger," in which he was cast as
a jockey.
"That part came easy," Jackie
said. "I've loved and ridden horses
ever since I can remember. I got
to be a good guy in that picture
for the first time." He grinned.
As for horses, he spent most of
his time between movies with his
animals. He owned a champion
jumper, with which he appeared
in fashionable Hollywood horse
shows until he grew too heavy to
ride it. Next he bought a brace
of pacing horses and devoted his
spare time to training and caring
for them, but he and the horses
had to part company-when he join-
ed the Army on December 17, 1941.
The tall, brown-haired, blue-eyed
soldier, who recently turned his
21st birthday, used to be a brat.
But he plays a straight part in the
current feature, that of soldiering,
and so far he has played it well
as his promotions testify. Now he's
crowned his promotions with the
right to go to the officers candi-
date school.

Weds Couple In

Drew Chapel

503d MEDICS

SHOTS and PHYSICS

An occasional and very welcome
visitor to the 503d Dispensary is
Captain David F. Stevenson, of the
687th Reporting Company special.
He makes it a point to remember
the medics and quite often sur-
prises them by calling them by
name. One of the most active of-
ficers on the post, Captain Steven-
son frequently may be seen at the
head of a long, tired column re-
turning from one of those -hikes.
He sets a brisk pace, too.
Pfc. A. V. Armstrong and Pvt.
0. C. Crawford, Jr., were named
just that at birth. Guess nobody
ever thought enough of them to
give them a front name. Pfc. Arm-
strong is from Alabama, and Pvt.
Crawford is a Texan cowboy.
Sunday afternoon the medics
gave the 503d 1st Reporting Co.
a thorough trouncing at softball,
5-2, with Pvt. Arthur Melchert
knocking out two beautiful triples.
Congratulations to Pfc. James W.
Hundley, Jr., who took himself a
wife while on furlough at his home
in Danville, Va.
The "Colonel," who is Staff
Sergeant Barrie D. Bryant's pet
coach whip snake, is home again,
after having run away numerous
times. Last week Corporal Charles
W. Wilson found him in the drain-
age ditch near the boxing arena
just in time to rescue him from
some soldiers who were preparing
"to kill him dead."

686th SPEC. REPT. CO.

By A/Sgt. ARNO JUSTMAN

Talking of men and the various
things they will do to save trouble,
we have a Pvt. here who bought
an officer's shirt and was told to
take the straps off the shoulders.
Now he has enlisted in O.C.S. to
save the trouble of removing said
straps.
Two mosquitoes flew into 1st Sgt.
Angelletti's room the other night
while he was trying to sleep and
this is what he overheard the first
mosquito say: "Shall we eat him
here or take him outside?"- The
second replied: "No, we better eat
him here. That other one outside
might take him away from us."
If at any time you approach a
mob making a terrific noise, it will
not be necessary for you to see
who the fellow is. It will be Pvt.
Wallister and that's for sure.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Those
names have always suggested to
me a dual personality, so it came
as a great surprise when I found
out that the very mild mannered,
soft-spoken Pvt. Green is one bomb-
shell when he gets to town. I even
heard he took a drink the other
night. Tsk! Tsk!
Sgt. Murphy, Moifhy to you, is
another fellow who operates on the
sly. To hear him talk you would
think most of his time is spent at
the U. S. O. writing letters, but
who should pick me up the other
night but Moifhy and one very
charming personality. As the talk
went along, I mentioned the fact
it sure would be nice to have din-
ner at a home. Of course I never
had any intentions of staying with
the happy couple and evidently
they were of the same opinion, be-
cause I had dinner at a cafe. You
never know who your friends are,
believe me.

Hay, Skinnay-:
You should'a been with us last
Thursday night. Boy, did we ever
have fun. Our company decided to
have one of those swell parties with
lots of fried chicken 'n all that goes
with it. (Even a keg or two of
beer.) A group of girls from the
Y. W. C. A. were invited to be our
guests at the Police firing range
clubhouse and they sure must of
made a hit, for the next morning
all the fellows had a phone num-
ber to use for future reference.
Well, as I was saying, that chick-
en was really good. The fellows
had a lot of fun taking the girls
through the chow line. The only
trouble was that when a cook saw
a girl that looked nice, he'd just
heap her plate with olives. Later
I saw Sgt. Bernard engaged in a
serious conversation, telling one
lovely lass just how to prepare
spaghetti and meat balls. Anything
for a'line as long as it isn't a mili-
tary secret.
Then a bunch of the fellows from
Drew Field combined to form an
orchestra and we spent the rest
of the evening on and around the
dance floor. Sgt. Louis Massing-
ham (since appointed 1st Sgt. of
this company) took over the drum

how he can tickle a drum is really
something. (Those drums earned
him the price of many a meal be-
fore he enlisted in the service.)
Lt. Cecil presented Corpora
Dwight Bones with two loaves of

when we can do it again.

they are the more I hate 'em."
What is he saying?

Private 1st Class John January
has proven his ability as a carpen-
ter in our company area. He even
built a first-class desk for the C. 0.
But little did he think that he
would be the first one to catch
H- over that self-same desk.
That's a record for you.

What a man! On the detail list
for the 12th Pvt. Reno Ravaioli
found himself to be listed as super-
man inasmuch as he was on two
guard details and on regimental
supply. Wonder how he came out?
It's a cinch if he had his choice
he would not take either guard.

That's all for this week, fellows,
so we will see you all next week.

ON THE BALL



To the boys: After a bit of eaves-
dropping and chiseling here and
there, your special service repre-
sentative came to the conclusion
y'all would like to see your organ-
ization represented in our field pa-
per. So, from now on, men, we will
be "on the ball" again ....
S/Sgt. Ray Huglin acquired a
"Mrs." last week and everything is
hearts and flowers. Congrats and
best wishes: Sgt. J. G. White
and T/5 (Model T Corporal) P. J.
Weidner could not be stopped last
week. Their better halfs blew into
town. No! No! Fellows, those
men you saw pacing the frontage
of our orderly room, nervously
lighting cigarettes and stuttering
while trying to speak last Tuesday
night, were not expectant. This is
furlough time once more; they
were merely sweating one out ....
Congratulations to all the new
"T" striped men .... For the per-
fect stay-at-home-drink, ask Sgt. J.
R. Moreland for the ingredients of
a LIN-ZA-GIL-YEN....
Lt. Allen Benz, formerly T/Sgt.
Allen Benz, of our organization is
back at Drew. Eyes' right O. C. S.
applicants and with a bit of optim-
ism you too will soon be sporting
those gold bars ....
Men, now that y'all have enough
experience to apply for a job at
any moving and storage concern
and are finally settled, how do you
like your new quarters? Ain't they
cute. ..
To the majority of officers and
7nen it was just another mail-call,
but as Lt. Noyes opened this cer-
tain message, a big broad smile
from ear to ear flashed upon his
countenance. Wondering how any-
one could smile amid this Florida
heat, the query nook was formed.
"Men," said our young Command-
ing Officer, "I've been promoted."
Best wishes to you sir! Those silver
bars sure are becoming and by
the way, sir! the Tampa Tribune
photographer is not an acquaint-
ance. ....
Tarpon Springs might be the
sponge center of the world, but to
a couple of Drew Field soldiers the
sponges don't count. Brother, God
bless those crackers; they certainly
are sweet Johnson & John-
son ..


505th Reg. 1st Rept'g

Company

By R. & J. D.-SANDIFER
There is a decided evidence of
romance in our outfit these days,
and it's a bit late to blame it on
the Spring. Since we're here, we're
wondering if we may attribute the
inclinations of some of the fellows
to the tropical atmosphere. Never-
theless, one has to be with us only
a brief time to hear talk of fur-
loughs, wedding bells, and honey-
moons. To our knowledge there are

three soldiers in our company
whose plans are taking definite
shape. Who said "All the world
loves a lover"?
We regret very much that the
death of an aunt took Cpl. Paul L.
Wiley to his home in Falmouth,
Ind., on an emergency furlough.
Hasn't everyone observed the
sudden transformation in the spir-
its of Pvt. Dudley J. Hewitt since
1 P. M. Sunday afternoon? That's
the hour of the arrival of the lovely
little miss whose photograph so
beautifully adorns tent No. 11.
Welcome to Tampa and to the
505th, Lorraine, and we trust that
you left all well in Florence, S. C.
Our congratulations for their pro-
motions and best wishes go to the
following men who have recently


left our company: Sgt. Morton H.
Zucker, Cpl. Henry G. Hamrick, Jr., 564th PLOTT. CO.
Cpl. Robert Coffer, Tech 5th Shel-
by R. Culpepper, and Tech 5th Le- DOTS AND DASHES
Royatch this guy, CplChare
Watch this guy, Cpl."Charles F.


Antrup! Quite a few of us would
like to know how he makes these
interesting contacts and the tech-
nique which he must use.
T/Sgt. Dow L. Stephens tells of
the wonderful time he had in Or-
lando while there recently on pass.
Do you need to be told about burn-
ing your candle at both ends,
Steve?


350th SERVICE SQUADRON

NEWS

By Cpl. C. BEHM
Our best customer, 'the amazing
corporal of barrack No. 1,' hits the
news again with the astounding
discovery of his daily powder-bath.
Oh, man! Talk about material for
the 'jockeys'!
Sports: So far, our softball team
has dropped all three of the games
played. But don't underestimate
our boys. We do have an excellent
team, with plenty of speed and
power at the plate. Our main trou-
ble has been the lack of sufficient
practice. So watch us from now on.
Sure, we're looking for outside.
games. iContact Cpl. Behm at the
orderly room.
Nice work if you can do it. And
Pvt. Ruff is doing just that, by re-
ceiving a package just about every
other day. Rumor has it that he is
having his automobile shipped to
him in sections; thus the steady
stream of parcels. But, then, you
really don't know what to believe
these days.
Say, talk about your morale-
how do the other squadrons meas-
ure up against the 350th? We can
honestly say that we have never
had so much as a fistfight in our
group. And that is unusual. When
you have a Certain number of men
living together for any length of
time, friction will always result. I
believe the feelings are governed
by the fact that the men realize
their representatives are doing
everything possible to furnish them
with a sport schedule, recreation,
and any other small service that
may in any way aid them. A few
seem dissatisfied at times, but then
they don't fully realize the diffi-
culties encountered on some of
these projects. 'On the whole the
men are satisfied and willing to
do their part in preserving unity
and good-fellowship.
Skin you love to touch: that part
around the neck of the guy who
repeatedly reads over your shoul-
der while you are writing that spe-
cial letter.
Benny says: That hard-working
go-between, back in Robesonia, Pa.,
should be decorated for his diligent
work in slipping those letters and
parcels of the 'corporal's room-
mate' to the sweet little thing.
Wonder how Vera liked the pin.
It's a shame the picture had to be
dragged into the matter. End of
gossip.
Hobbies: Those soap carvings of
Pvt. Salkovitz are really clever. It
so happens that 'Salk.' hails from
our old Alma Mammy, back in the
Smokey City, where he acquired
the knack of sculpturing the
'cleansing cake.'
Coming attractions: Could be a
feud in the making with the 9th
F. C.? We were asked to remind
two of their conniving Cassanovas
that they are visiting Nebraska
Ave. through the courtesy and tol-
erance of the 350th. Hello, O'Hara!
Good news! Lessons in boxing,
jiu-jitsu, and hand-to-hand fighting,
will be given every Wednesday and
Friday from 2:30 to 4:00 on the
calisthenics ground, starting July
29. Each and every one is urged
to attend if at all possible. See
yours truly for arrangements.


By Cpl. S. C. KATZENELL
We traveled far and wide and
covered some of the greatest sports
and civic spectacles this nation has
to offer during our 102 years of
reporting for the Washington
Times-Herald, but never did an
event impress us as the presenta-
tion on Sunday of the Bond Flag,
symbolic of a 100 percent subscrip-
tion in the Bond Drive, to the Plot-
ting Company by our likeable Bat-
talion commander, Major Rex Le
Fevre.
Dressed in their military best,
the Plotting Company men stood
proudly in their ranks as the Major
praised them for their wonderful
showing in the Bond campaign.
For some reason we felt prouder
than any time in our lives when
the Major threw orchids at us.
It must be some reason for this
unusual feeling, and we believe we
have discovered it. We know we
are engaged in a war in which
everything that America stands for
is at stake and the least little thing
we do to aid this grand and glori-
ous country of ours makes us feel
like throwing out our chest.
One of our sports inclined sol-
diers was carefully reading the
race entries the other day when
one of our youthful warriors glanc-
ed over his shoulder and said:
"Hey, bud! That jockey 'No Boy'
certainly rides a lot of horses. I
see where he's going to ride 14
horses in one race."
Being a conscientious young man,
Corporal James Wyatt very seldom
takes time out from his duties.
Even while he's sleeping he's di-
recting the physical education of
the Plotting Company. Just step
in his tent any night when the
Corporal is asleep and you can
hear him say:
"What's the matter with you,
soldier, are your legs broken? Bend
those knees. Hep, two, three, four."-

The 504th SAWR, led by Colonel
Stanford, made its first public ap-

the Heroes' Day Parade. With
plenty of fair ladies on the side-

all, especially the Motor Pool men.

501st Regiment-Plant Field

REPORTS

By PFC HARRY J. ZIGUN
News here and there: Last Wed-
nesday night at the Hyde Park
Methodist church' Chaplain Boren
tied the knot for Cpl. Noble Hard-
ing of HQ Co., Plotting, and Miss
Mayne SWartz, both of Indiana. Sgt.
Lawrence Cutting was best man.

Plans are being made for a gala
musical show with a mock marriage
as a feature. The participants of
the marriage will be made up of
men of Plant Field. The bride's
vegetable bouquet is already in the
state of preparation.

Cpl. Seymour R. Kaplan of the
-munications Co. reports that
.and time was had at the party
ast Friday night. Barrels of beer,
eaps of fried chicken and deli-
cious gravy made up the bill of
fare, while the hearty good-fellow-
ship that the ol' gang is famous
for moulded the shindig into a
roaring success. Thanks are due to
Cpl. Paul Zenobia and to Ballauch
and Welch for arranging the de-
tails for the party. The affair was
held at the beautiful Hellenic club,
and music was provided by a hot
colored band. The most eloquent
testimonial to the success of the
party was the heap of well-picked
bones and bare plates which alone
remained.

Cpl. Francis E. Novicki for the
3rd Reporting Co. reports his com-
pany is gradually reaching 100%
co-operation in the sale of war
bonds. Acting First Sgt. Simonson
feels sure their goal of 100% sub-
scription will be attained very soon.
Last week this company enjoyed
a delightful and entertaining social
event at the Tampa Recreational
Center. Among the guests were
Major Chamberlin, Capt. Conley
and Lt. Wade. The men express
their appreciation to Lt. Lawrence
and those whose efforts made the
affair possible.
Sgt. Proto and Pvt. Simak are
now the PM's. Go easy on us, fel-
lows. Remember that you were
young once.
Famous saying by Cpl. Berlinski:
"Isn't that right, fellows?" By PFC
Palmer: "Boys, won't you please
get-up!" By Pvt. McMennan: "I'm
still an Irishman."
Cpls. Campbell, Hipkins and Pvt.
Wozniak are three happy fellows.
They expect their wives to arrive
in Tampa this coming week.
Congratulations to S/Sgt. Ste-
phens who has been accepted for
OCS.
The third Reporting baseball
team call invincibility with stellar
players, like Sgt. Ottieri, Sgt. Todd,
Pvt. McMennan and Mvt Skutinsky,
and PFC Palmer.
Things we didn't know till now:
"gt Chester Samson started in
h-6 Department of Justice in Wash-
ington as a messenger boy. He be-
come a typist, clerk, stenographer,
Law clerk, Librarian and then ad-
ministrative assistant. He also
worked in the OPM Priorities di-
vision. "Chet" typed 100 words a
minute and then took short hand
at the rate of 150 words per min-
ute. They say Chet takes dictation
on a typewriter and skips the note
books as a waste of time.


1st Reporting Co.
505th Sig. AW Regiment

We are happy to have the fol-
lowing men returned to the com-
pany: Cpl. Henry Brooks, Techs.
4th John J. Cruz, Harry C. Euler,
Charles K. Flitton, Techs 5th Jack
J. Chiparo, Francis M. Gannon,
Pfc. William L. Hall, and Pvts.
Tom Charno, Marvin L. Rickerson,
and Henry L. Hartman. They have
been on detached service and have
been, we feel sure, upholding the


traditions of the 1st Reporting Co.
Seeing Sgt. John W. Hayes look-
ing particularly down-hearted one
morning this week, we hastened to
inquire concerning his feelings,
and--if advisable--to offer our
sympathy. Sgt. Hayes confided in
us that he was practically ruined
financially as the result of inviting
two hungry soldiers to dinner. It
seems that the fellows ordered
everything on the menu from soup
to nuts, including caviar. Sgt.
Hayes will gladly furnish any in-
terested soldiers the names of two
guys whom one should not ask to
dinner.
Cpl. William H. Connors deserves
our sympathy because of the con-
dition of his lips, which he ascribes
to a severe sunburn. While we
don't discredit his story, we were
constrained to believe at first that
he had been out with the bearded
lady.
We wish for you, James J.
Poulos, a speedy convalescence,
and we hope that your ailment is
not so serious as to necessitate an
operation.

2nd REPORTING COMPANY
564th


"BLITZ"


By Pfc. JOE MAGGIORE
The 2nd Reporting Company has
really been on the "ball," due to
the hard work of our C. 0., Lt. J.
R. Crumplar and his Non-Coms.
Did you fellows notice that swell
layout we have out front. It's the
most attractive front in camp (so
we think). You can thank Sgt.
Hanlin and Leigh for the supervi-
sion of this layout and that detail:
"Nice work, fellows."
Not mentioning anyone, but
Who's that certain non-com with
that good morning cheer "all right
fall out or you'll be gigged."
Speaking of funny incidents,
here is the funniest yet! One night
Sgt. Caruso, Sherlock and your
Correspondent returned from an
outing and awoke their pride and
joy, Cpl. Jake Weir, or better
known as "General" Weir, the pad
and pencil man, at 1:30 A. M. The
Little "General" was up like a
flash and greatly dismayed over
the fact that he was awakened from
a sound sleep. Emulating the feats
of "Superman," he was in his "fa-
tigues" in a flash and immediately
commenced his search for his pad
and pencil. Just to make it look
like the real McCoy, Sgt. Caruso
rounded up 12 men and after he
put them wise to the gag gave them
their morning exercise. The little
"General's" pupils popped out and
almost fell on the spot that he
stood. He was terrifically shocked.
Fetching his whistle and flashlight
he stumbled into the blackness of
early dawn and not until then did
he realize the gag pulled on him.
P. S.-He still can't get over it!
Here's wishing T/Sgt. Young
loads of luck in his new job as
school instructor. He gave up his
-Ist/Sgt.'s job to serve in this ca-
pacity.
The fellows felt that they gained
another swell guy when Corporal
Maddox took over the Ist/Sgt. job.
He is going great guns! Keep it
up, Sarge.
To you men who wanted to know
what became of your money do-
pated to the Bn. Athletic Recrea-
tion Fund, here's the dope. We
purchased baseball gloves, a foot-
ball, dart sets, checkers, dominoes,
cards, and shirts and caps for the
baseball team. We are trying to
set up a day room so that the Bat-
talion can make good use of it.
It's something we should have and
its erection is being considered.
Speaking of baseball, since the
Bn. baseball team has had those
flashy shirts and caps presented
to them, they have won three con-
secutive games after losing the
first four games rilayed. They beat
the American Legion team of Clear-
water, 10 to 7, after losing to them,
5-2, with Jack Russell, former star
relief pitcher of the Chicago Cubs,
toeing the rubber against our boys.
The 501st Reg. and Sig. Hq. and
Hq. Co., 3rd Fighter Command
teams also went down to defeat
Sunday at Plant Park. The splen-

Incidentally, we have the top-

They have won 14 consecutive

564th MEDICOS

By Pvt. DAN E. MOTLOW
The officers and enlisted men of
the 564th Medics had a very enjoy-
able outing at Lake Ellen last
Thursday afternoon. Sandwiches
and drinks were the order of the
day.
A new mascot was added to the
Detachment, a pupby the name of
"Furlough."
Pvts. Smith, Simeone, Romeo,
and Pfc. Rider returned Saturday
from an enjoyable 10 days at home.
"Jim Brady" Simeone sa y s that
there was nothing in Providence,
but women, women, and women,
and not a soldier in sight.
The Bond Campaign ended with
the Medics having a subscription of
100%. The Plotting Company also
attained 100%, with the result that
the Plotting was awarded the Bat-
talion Flag for the first week, and
the Medical Detachment taking it
over during the second week.
T/Sgt. Katz left Monday on fur-
lough. He will be among the dim-
med-out lights of Broadway. S/Sgt.
Simcox is pinch-hitting in his ab-
sence.
Pvts. Kelly, Tarpley, Thomas and
Morris left Saturday morning for
Illinois, Kentucky, and North Caro-
lina respectively.
The weekly litter drill demon-
stration for the ladies of the Amer-
ican Red Cross Motor Corps was
held near Camp DeSoto Saturday
afternoon. The boys will have to
look to their laurels, as the ladies
are putting them in the shade when
it comes to Close Order Drill.
Pfc. Robertson leaves Tuesday
for the mountains of Colorado.
With the thermometer in the high
nineties, he couldn't have picked a
more opportune time to go to the
mountains.

SQUADRON
By Pfc. TULY A. UNGER

We want to welcome to our
squadron all those new men who
were transferred from other outfits
on the field. Welcome, fellows.
On June 19 Pvt. James Kay (Sar-
gent now and those cigars he has
been passing out are really good)
was sent to the MacDill Hospital.
On his return he was honored by
having his mother, Mrs. B. F. Kay,
and the love of his life, Miss Cath-
erine Jones, Greenville, S. C., visit
him. They certainly enjoyed our
chow and church services at the
field. In fact that little threesome
was the envy and delight of every-
one on the field. Come back and
visit us again, Mrs. Kay and Miss
Jones.
Among those fortunate ones who
had visitors last week was Private,
you know the actor, McGarry and
we understand there was a good
time had by all concerned. But
knowing Irish, I can certainly ap-
preciate that. Of course, I didn't
meet her but then I might just as
well have from all those ethereal
descriptive terms he was throwing
around.
Our sincerest congratulations to
all those new rating men. Ours
seems to be a non-com's delight,
-But th e n our Major certainly
does take care of his boys.
While on the passing parade we
would like to make note of the
Base Personnel Fest in Tampa the
other night. If you're "Able," you'll
gather what I mean. Strangely en-
ough, though, the evening ended
up one short so that the quad be-
came a triumvirate. I wonder who

In conclusion, speaking for the
entire outfit, I want to thank Lt.
Bostick and the kitchen staff for
the swell chow that has been com-
ing forth lately. As long as it con-
tinues and with new barracks with
lights we are truly the Super-Squad
of the field.

HQ & HQ SQUADRON
By Cpl. ANDREW PATERSON
Unlike the Ancient Mariner
"who stoppeth ONE of three,"
the Hq & Hq Sq. softball team
went him one better and stoppeth
all three. First to fall under the
axe by a score of 7-4, was the
Base Medics, our first league
game. Next victim was the Palm
River team, humbled by a 11-6
score, then last and the most
troublesome was the 350th Serv-
ice Squadron in a tight game 9-8.
The 350th threw everything they
..had at us; for a time we were
wondering g why they forgot to
throw in the barracks and supply
room along with their band of
professional wailers. In passing,
let us remind them, that even dur-
ing these trying times when 259
is overburdened with calls, we
are sure the Chaplain can spare
them a few moments.
Look out for our so-called B
team. The infants are coming up
fast, witness the fact of their 5-4
victory over the 327th Materiel
Sq. A team Monday.
We wonder why S/Sgt. Robert
Hale has kept his recent marriage
a secret. All we can find out is
that the couple were married here
a short time ago, and the bride is
now residing in Kansas. Let us in
on the full details, Bob; you might
as well get those quarters and
rations.
Will wonders never cease? Who
ever heard of anyone volunteering
for a week's K. P.? "Farmer" Trott
must have thought it the best way
to beat the "Chow" line, because
he's the man who stepped out and
said, "I, take me." Needless to
say they did.
SDue to the intensive heat the
Infirmary has been taking a beat-
ing on that Violet Genitian, and
many of the boys are looking like
painted Easter eggs with spotches
of deep blue showing on the var-
ious parts of the body beautiful.
Take hope, men; the summer is
advancing, and every time we
think of the heat here, remember
the boys in the real hot climates,
Then consider ourselves lucky.
Best wishes for a speedy rec-
overy to Pvt. Duffy, who has just
left us for another sojurn at Mac-
Dill hospital. We hope to see him
back on the job shortly. Duf is
getting to be quite a regular visi-
tor to MacDill, but we hope he is
able to find out definitely just
what the heck is the matter.
We hope PFC's Horton and
Wolf have a wonderful time on
furlough. We understand Horton
Wpects to bring the missus back
) th him. This means no more
nightly hikes out the East gate,
Howard. We often wondered why
you were so fond of night walking.

327 Service Squadron
By T. G. MEO
If Mark Hedge reads this col-
umn, or any of his friends, please
get in touch with Pvt. Merkins of
the 327th Service Squadron. He has
been trying to meet or locate his
friend since he came to Drew
Field. Let's hope this article brings
them together.
We wonder what has made the
sudden change in Pvt. Coleman,
could it be his new heart-beat that
he met in Tampa? What strange
power does she possess over him?
He is now satisfied with a coke
and sweet music for a nite's enter-
tainment. Oh! how you have
changed, Coleman.
With priorities the way they are
on rubber and gasoline, Tech Sgt.
Morgan figured his automobile was
using too much of these much
needed materials that could help
win this war. As we know Sgt.
Morgan is a happily married man.
Every morning you will see him
puff-puffinug along on his new bi-
cycle, which he bought to meet his
demands for transportation to and
from Drew Field. If every one was
as conservative as you, Sergeant,
there would be no need of prior-
ities in this wonderful country.
Last week Private Wasilco re-
ceived a telegram from his mother
stating that she was going to visit
him for a few days. She arrived
last Wednesday from McKees
Rocks, Pa. After spending a few
days in and about Tampa, plus St.
Pete and Clearwater, she departed
from Florida a happy mother,
knowing how well her son, Willie,
is being taken care of in the United
States Army Air Corps.
We wish to extend wishes for a
speedy recovery to Sgt. Bell from
his recent accident that he received
while working on one of our crash
trucks. I visited him at MacDill
Hospital and found him to be in
the best of health and highest of
spirit, telling us to keep 'em fly-
ing. It, won't be long before he is
with us once again on the line.
The B Team of the Hq. & Hq. Sq.
pulled a surprise act and defeated
our A Team by a score of five to
four. Our failure to win this game
was due to too much loafing on
the bases. This might have been
a league game, so buckle down,
boys.

Did you hear the joke about the
soldier stationed at Alaska who
wrote his sweetie pie a long letter,
which, of course, had to be passed
by the Censor's Office? Well it
seems that all said girl friend re-
ceived was a short note that read
something like this: "Dear Mabel,
Jim is well, happy and still loves
you very much, but he talks too
damn much. Signed, the Censors."
That's what happens to this col-
umn when I try to bid bon voyage
or welcome to our buddies so, per-
haps, you can understand when
you don't see some of your friends'
names in print..
Last week we announced the
start of several tournaments. I am
glad to announce that they are go-
ing under full steam guided ably
by Sgt. Moses. Our baseball team
won their first game from Hq.
Regt. by default but came back
this week to demonstrate their
playing ability by coming up from
the rear to beat Hq, Co. Rpt. Btn.
by a score of 14-10. The horse shoe
pitching has gotten off to a spirited
start and the competition is going
to prove keen; I'll have the results
in the next issue. The ping pong
schedule is set up and ready to go
and should be completed by the
end of the week.
Have you heard that Pvt. Barney
Massa dashed through the first
running test of the obstacle course
in 1:05 setting the record for the
day? There seems to be a funny
whirring sound over Corp. E. J.
Thomas' home these days and we
suspect that it might be the stork.
Good luck to you and the little
woman and we hope it's a boy be-
cause you said you won't hand out

_ Sub Depot Subs Drew Field Theater


By Cpl. JOHN F. SUSZYNSKI
In that strange outer realm
known as "Civilian Life," this
might be called the "Hats Off" De-
partment, but with us, it's "HAND
SALUTE"-and our first nominee
is Capt. Harvey G. Turner, Jr.,
Commanding Officer of the Air
Force Band. Capt. Turner hails
from Morrisville, Vt., and attended
the Massachusetts State College at
Amherst, Mass. A personable young
man of 26, schooled in military, tac-
tics and regulations, Capt. Turner
has the uncanny faculty of remem-
bering not only faces but the cor-
rect names that go with them (a
feat so much mor remarkable
when you consider some of the
names with which he has to deal),
and he holds the respect and con-
fidence of the men under his com-
mand. He willingly assumed the
responsibility of fostering our new-
ly activated unit, in addition to.his
regular duties as Commanding Of-
ficer of the Hq. and Hq. Sqdn,
309th. Service Group, and, going out
of his way in the interests of our
organization, he has been largely
instrumental in elevating the Air
Force Band from its rather non-
descript beginning to proportions
which are rapidly approaching res-
pectability and dignity- we now
have official quarters under the
Captain's wings, and Barracks T-
272 (with the adjoining orange
grove) has just been "deeded" over
to the Band for its exclusive use.
We appreciate your efforts in our
behalf, and from all fifteen of us
-it's HAND SALUTE, Captain
Turner.

Pvt. Will Krewson changed his
address recently to the 314th Base
Hq. and Air Base Sqdn, where he
is waiting his call to Glider Pilots'
School. We shall miss you, and
Elaine's packages-GOOD LUCK!
Sgt. Elwood Eaton will be glad
to hear that WARRANT OFFICER
Lester G. Baker has been assigned
to us as Bandleader and will be
on hand next week to share the
burden of some of the Sarge's re-
cent worries. Mr. Baker did short
work of the prescribed course of
study, and graduated with high
honors. COME ON, QUARTER-
MASTER, BRING ON THOSE G. I.
INSTRUMENTS!!!
The Band acquired four other
new members during the past
week, Pvt. Lewis A. "Bud" Estes,
sax and clarinet player, as well as
arranger of note, transferred from
Mitchell Field, New York. He was
chief arranger for Jimmy .Dorsey
just before enlisting in the army;
other name bands with which he
has been associated include Alvino
Rey, Ruby Newman, Teddy Powell,
Jimmy Lunceford and Count Basie.
Get Bud to tell you about his
"Deep Sleep Seven" sometime.
Pvt. Michael R. Vitale, trombon-
ist from Keene, N. H., moved in
with us from the 564th Sig. A. W.
Bn, and Pvt. Doodrow E. Harwick
came on down from Zion City, Pa.,
via MacDill Field, to play drums
with us.,
We had to justify our use of the
name AIR FORCE BAND, and so
we took in a flyer, Pvt. Adelbert
E. Woodke. He learned to fly back
home in Shaler, Iowa, and holds
a C. A. A. pilot's license. He'll be
playing the tuba with us.
Pvt. "Lucky" Kowalski spent his
recent furlough deep sea fishing
(in his own 32 foot cabin cruiser)
off Long Island, chatting with
Mayor La Guardia, and watching
New York's Great White Way
blackout--but his biggest adven-
ture came when he got back to

This week we lost one of our
captains, Captain Arthur McLean,
to the 675 Rept. Co. The men sure
hated to see him go for we were
looking forward to soldering under
him very much. He and Captain
George have been together for sev-
eral months now, and they hated
to part ways.
Last Thursday evening the com-
pany fund was put to a very good
use in form of a beer party. You
can be sure a good time was had by
all. Three kegs of beer and about
15 pounds of meat sandwiches
quickly disappeared.

Drew Field late at night and tried
to oust a supposed intruder from
his bunk in T-506. When the "in-

beauties who, he thought, were
fellow bandsmen-they all turned
out to be Signal Hq. Men with

Hiya, fellahs and gals. This is
Joe Blow from Kokomo greeting
you in the usual fashion with a
hearty Hello. As leads go, this one
is kind of stinko, huh?
Well, anyway, here we are again
and this time it's to sing the praises
of Privates Henry Tousend, Charlie
Crain and Mickey Michaloff for
fine performances on last week's
All-Star Parade. Henry acquitted
himself admirably for an NBC art-
ist, and as a song-and-dance-man
Chuck turned out to be a fine ac-
tor. And much to the delight of
everyone, but principally our dra-
matic actor superbus elegantus, O.
Z. Whitehead, we got Merton of the
Movies off our chests.

This Friday we have with us one
fine fellah and one fine pianist.
His name is Pompeo. Simply that,
because he is that good. He was
a concert artist before. "jinin' up."

Things are all ironed out now
and the radio schedule is all set
up, thanks to Captains H, M. Dos-
ter, Chester Delano and G. E. Tully.
These officers have cleared all the
unnecessary obstacles out of the
way and the Drew Field radio.

there ain't no more. We'll see you
all again next Friday. Meantime,
