What is it that soldiers do outside of the ordinary during their off-hours? American soldiers are
tough in the field, but off duty one finds them pursuing all kinds of hobbies, odd and otherwise.
Some follow such quiet pastimes as needlework and soap carving. Likb Sgt. Technician H. B. Ful-
ford, of the Consolidated Mess Hall (at left), for instance. In the above picture he displays his latest
hook needlework product, a hook rug with the army air force insignia. Or like Pvt. Sidney Salkovitz, of
the 350th Service Squadron, who is shown at the right doing a bit of soap sculpture.
Others, like the'Echoes artist, Pfc. Harry Lampert, of the 564th Signal Battalion, draw cartoons in
their spare time. Still others fashion model sailboats or concentrate on modeling airplanes.
The point is, many soldiers continue to pursue their civilian occupations or avocations during their
spare time while in the Army and the public is interested in what they do. So are the local newspapers.
And so is the staff of the Echoes.
Whoever has an odd hobby, or whoever knows somebody who has, should call at the Public Rela-
tions Office, Base Headquarters, or telephone 218. If the hobby is unusual enough, we will publicize it.

For three years Private Larry
Dannenberg tried to trash the
movies in Hollywood. But he
never got past' the guard at the
studio gate.
A year ago Dannenberg desert
ed the film capital for the armed
forces. Six months ago he was
sent to Drew Field where he has
been since.
Last week a Warner Brothers
company arrived at Drew to shoot
some realistic air scenes for "Ai,


Force." Director Howard Hawks
wanted a number of privates to
furnish some atmosphere.
The first lad Hawks picked was
Private Larry, who thus finally
got into the movies 3,000 miles
from Hollywood. He will appeal
in key scenes with John Garfield,
Harry Carey, George Tobias and
Gig Young. Hawks says that
there'll be some good parts for
Private Dannenberg when he's
mustered out.


The first time that Tech Sgt.
Harold Qualey and Private James
Hamilton were at a battlefront,
they were both disappointed in
not being able to come to grips
with the enemy. They were eager
enough, but a tropical disease
laid them low. Now they are at
Drew Field.
Tech Sgt. Qualey, aged 23, of
Lanesboro, Minn., has been in the
Army for two years. While at
Geider Field, Spokane, Wash., he
was picked with a group of men
from his squadron by the Ferry
Command. They took a B-17 to
Khartoun, in the Anglo-Egyptian
Sudan, a desert town located on
'he unper Nile. Qualey was sta-
tioned at Fort Lamy. a French air
base which had been bombed by
Axis aircraft.
He was anxious to get at the
enemy from the very day he

has a bandmaster, Warrant Officer .
Lester G. Baker, who arrived at
Drew recently. He came direct
from the Army Music School.
Washington, D. C., from which he
was graduated and made warrant
officer.
Mr. Baker is well qualified to
serve as a band director and or

eral symphony orchestras, include
ing the Michigan Symphony. IHe ':

public schools of Kalamazoo (his ,'. si

The warrant officer is not new
to Drew Field. In May he came
to Drew from MacDill Field where
he had been the band's assistant
director. He was a sergeant then
He had been transferred to Mac
Dill last October in a cadre for
organizing the field band, com
ing there from Camp Davis, N. C.,
where he was co-organizer of the
96th Coast Artillery Band.
He came to Drew to organize
the band and had to start from

While in Khartoun, Sgt. Qualey
met Private Hamilton and they
became fast friends. Private Ham-

Army almost as long as the ser-
geant.
Hamilton was stationed at Wadi

The Man With

The Shovel
PVT JBOB TOURING,
It was once upon a Tuesday, in
the merry month of June
There was born a little boy, and
in his mouth a silver spoon.
He had a thousand silken diapers,
and an air-conditioned crib,
His milk was bought from pure-
breds in a diamond-crusted bib.

As he grew his life was sheltered,
and his pants were valet-
pressed,
But he wasn't left to venture from
his little golden nest.
Soon his beard proclaimed his
manhood and his father kicked
the bucket,
Saying, "Son, life's just a lolli-
pop; just sit you. back and sue. .
it."

So the guy became a playboy, and
le had a lot of fun,
Until there came the fatal day
when we took up our gun;
And he opened up the mailbox:
and he thought that he was
balmy
When a little card informed him
of his entrance to the Army.

Now his diamond-crusted bib has
been transformed into fatigues,
And his dapper little slippers'are
the boots of seven leagues;
He digs the deepest ditches and
he scrubs the cleanest floors
And he does his private laundry
back of most un-private doors.

With his jaw unhinged and open,
he proclaimed, "This cannot be!
They- can do this thing to others,
but they CAN'T do this to me!"
Now he's digging DEEPER


few Sundays back; but I'll bet
we'll beat them the next time
we play them.
We read through last week's
columns of the Echoes and
couldn't help but notice all the
outfits that had already been
touched by Warner Bros.' epic and
how many of their men had met
the actors, etc. Well, we don'%
want to brag, but we know a girl
whose sister went out with John
Garfield, so there!
Most of the fighting Irish
moved into one hutment here last
week and now Reirdon, Freder
icks, Jones, Thomas, Tierney,
Hartnett and company have a new
coat of. paint on their little home-
the color, of course, is Shamrock
green.

Mayors, Sgt. Kaish, and yours

to get away from. all the G. I.'s

about how they enjoyed thci

mand in a B-17E. While stationed
at Wadi Seidna, doing mainten-
ance work, he became the victim
of malaria fever and was hos-
pitalized in the British military
hospital at Kharkoun. While in
the hospital, the ship in which he
had come over, crashed.
Upon release from the hospi-
tal, he was returned to the States.
He came to Miami, then to MacDill,
and from there he was transferred
to Drew Field. At Drew he works
as a radio operator for the 327th
Service Squadron.

reminisce about their days in the
desert on the upper Nile. Their
buddies sit around and listen
eagerly. Both Qualey and Hamil-

Field, but always uppermost in
their minds is the hope that they
won't be disappointed the next
time they're sent over .They want
to come to grips with the enemy!

numerous consultations the vic-

and I might add, well deserved.
This now puts Hq & Hq at the

go into the second half there is
little doubt in our minds that the
pennant will be hanging in the

the season is over.

If we keep on sending more

Sgt. Reminisces

On Anniversary

At Drew Field

By T/SGT. HENRY J, KATZ.
A year ago today the 530th
Signal Aircraft Warning Com-
pany rolled into Drew Field after
12 hours on a troop train from
Maxwell Field, Montgomery, Ala.
Drew Field was a lot different
one year ago. There were no
runways on the field, and the
hangar didn't have a plane in it.
Nine or ten barracks were stand-
ing in the middle of a sea of
sand, for concrete walks had not
yet been laid, and the grass
wasn't yet planted.
The Post Exchange (now PX
No. 1) had been taken over
the government, having form
been operated by civilians.
would open and close at various
times during the day. You could
never be quite sure whether or
not you'd find it open if you
went over to it.
Colonel Asp was commanding
the post, and General Frank was
the head of the 3rd Interceptor
Command. Commanding Drew
Field wasn't as difficult a year
ago as it must be today, for there
were only several hundred sol-
diers stationed here.
Buses ran every two or two-
and-one-half hours, and you rare-
ly had to stand. There was only
one entrance to Drew Field, and
that was at the site of the old
Guard House.
Diagonally across the street
from the old Guard House was
the "Air Pocket," where soldiers
would go after working hours for
soft drinks, beer, sandwiches,
hamburgers, and the juke box.
The 530th went "pioneering"
and, where the boxing ring is now
located, just west of the 503rd
Regiment area, set up its equip-
ment for training purposes. It
wasn't too pleasant out there, for
most of the ground consisted of
high grass and water, not to forget
an ample supply of mosquitoes.
Right near that site was a small
hangar, which had been used for
civilian planes. That hangar can
now be found at the Peter 0.
Knight Airport at the southern
tip of Davis Islands.
Yes, Drew Field certainly has
changed. And for the better,
too! Wonder what it'll be like a
year from today?

Col. Householder

Sjmmands Center

In St. Petersburg

Under the command of Col. Eu-
gene R. Householder, the St.
Petersburg Army Air Forces
Technical Training Center is now
operating a complete unit, with
hundreds of "rookies' from all
parts of the country pouring into
the Sunshine City week after
week. The flow will continue for
the duration.
They come here to receive their
basic training. Officers and party
men attached to the center have
been here for several weeks ad-
ministering the affairs of the sol-
diers who are to be trained as
technicians and mechanics for the
warplanes Uncle Sam will send
swooming over Germany and Ja-
pan.
In a minimum amount of time
the Army must train a maximum
number of ground and flight crew
members. They're the boys who'll
"keep 'em flying." So to facili-
tate the program, hotels and busi-
ness buildings- have been taken
over as quarters.
The recruits will be given 30
days' military training and exten-
sive aptitude tests to determine
for which of the highly technical
courses they are best fitted. In-
struction will include marching,
drilling, first-aid lectures, gas
mask drill and orientation ses-
sions.
This unit is one of seven Army
Air Forces Replacement Training
centers established in various
parts of the country under com-
mand of Maj. Gen. Walter R.
Weaver. The others are at Keesler
Field, Miss.: Sheppard Field, Tex.:
Jefferson Barracks, Mo.; Miami

A Father's Farewell


To His Soldier Son


(Bill is 1VH'nam H. lPurcell, Jr.,
SOn of "W. Iiens.oi Purcell. manag-
inl editor of the DI ily Amernic an,
VWest Frankfort, Ill. This article
is reprinted fr om thle Daily Amedi-
vatn of Marclh 9, 1942.)
DEAR SON:
Well, Bill, your number is up.
You are going to the army. There
is a job of serious, nasty, un-
civilized business to be taken care
of and you have been assigned
a part in it.
The task is unpleasant, repul-
sive. The assignment is different
to anything that you had planned.
Yet, it is a privilege as well as a
responsibility. For only Ameri-
cans-the finest of the nation's
manhood-are eligible to march


with Uncle Sam's armed citizenry
and to participate in this grim
game of war.
There is, now, but one thing
to do. Make the most of it. Be a
soldier in every sense of the word.
I told you, as a little curly-
headed boy, when you started to
school, that I wanted you to en-
deavor always to be the best in
your classes. I had no idea that
you would achieve that distinc-
tion. I had not been that calibre
.of student before you. But that
kind of aiming never has a bad
effect on the score.
Then, when you grew up and
was thinking of your first job, I
told you that, even though you
were employed at nothing more
important than ditch-digging, I
wanted you to try to be the best
ditch-digger on the job. I had
no idea that you would achieve
such top rank in your chosen


vocation. I had not. But ambi-
tion and the will to get ahead
never kept anybody down.
Now, as you march with mil-
lions of other sons from millions
of other American homes, I want
you to put all that you have into
this business of soldiering. It
matters not whether you ever wear
bars or stars if you are man

Soldiers Pleased

With Hospitality

In St. Petersburg

By Public Relations Office
(U. S. Army Air Forces Center)
Year after year St. Petersburg
has entertained scores of visitors
from every part of the United
States. This year guests arc the
men of the army air forces sent
here to train recruits fresh from
civilian life.
The army air forces' job in St.
Petersburg is a serious tasi and
one not to be undertaken lightly.
The men housed in St. Peters-
burg's expensive hotels re-.alize
that they have a job to do, but
being only human they help but marvel at their' sur-
roundings.
Many had lived in barracks and
tents in fields near cities already
overcrowded with soldiers. Some
,came from the North and the
sight of palm trees with blue wa-
ter was a new thrill.
All were impressed by St. Pe-
tersburg's hospitality which wnas
sincere and unsolicited, her wide
streets and white buildings.
Although the hotel rooms were
stripped of much of their ihnery
which was carefully stored away,
enough of it was left to provide
air force men with spacious quar-
ters.
But more important than the
personal enjoyment and comfort
of the newly converted quarters
was the saving of more than eight
months' time necessary to build
new quarters.
Maj. Gen. Walter R. Weaver,
commanding officer of the Army
Air Forces Technical Training
command, who championed the
system of quick training though
use of hotels and other existing
facilities, says of this method:
"The average soldier has good
sense. He knows we are in a war
and that he iq part of it. You are
not fooling him on these facts
when you house him in a $10-a-day
hotel room. He realizes the con-
ditions he might later be called
upon to face and this initial treat-
ment will not tend to make him
soft.
"There is nothing too good for
these men at this period of their
training for they are offering all
they have, even their lives if

Pier Has Appeal

For Soldiers;

Built In 1927

St. Petersburg's large and fine
recreation pier, which extends far
out into Tampa bay, has special
appeal for the soldiers of the
Army Air Forces Replacement
Training Center, many of whom
have come from inland towns and
have never before seen salt wa-
ter. Every day scores of soldiers
can be seen on the pier watching
boats of many kinds that cruise
the nearby waters and the birds
that fly over the sea. The pier
is one of the main attractions of
St. Petersburg and is thronged
many times each week. It is the
largest pier in the country that
accommodates automobiles as well
as pedestrians and every visitor
to the city visits the pier at some
time or another.
The pier was built in 1927 at a
cost of more than a million dol-
lars and extends out over Tampa
bay for more than 2,400 feet.
Its approach, an extension of
Second avenue north, starts at
Beach drive, separating the north
and central yacht basins. One side
of the approach is used for dock-
ing facilities and the MacDill
Field Beach club. The other side is
occupied by municipal -tennis
courts, solarium, museum, spa
pool, children's playground and
beach. On the pier there are
wide sidewalks and sufficient
light for night fishing.
The head of the pier, 400 by
300 feet, is a double deck casino
of modified Mediterranean archi-
tecture. The lower floor con-
tains an auditorium, offices and
lunch room. The upper floors
house a glass-in dance floor and
the studios of radio station WSUN.
The street railway system extends
to the end of the pier and there
are parking facilities for hundreds
of cars. No charge is made for the
use of the pier.
The municipal solarium was the
first municipally owned solarium
and is believed to be the largest
institution of its kind in the world.
It is situated on the approach to
the pier and adjoins the spa beach.
There are facilities for both men
and women sunbathers. Registered
nurses attend the patrons to see
that they get the most benefit from
the sun without painful results.
Visitors from every state in the
Union and Canada have come to
the.solarium, suffering with arth-
ritis, neuritis, cutaneous ailments,
sinus trouble, rheumatism and
respiratory diseases, for helio-
therapic treatments. Many others
come just to get a tan by scien-
tific methods. The two separate
sections of the solarium are en-
closed by highways and a small
charge is made for the use of
the solarium, its lockers, showers,
etc.
The Municip'al Spa pool is lo-
cated on the approach to the pier
and is approved by the Florida
State Board of Health. The salt
water for the pool -is purified
and kept at a temperature of 80
degrees during the winter when
swimming meets and diving ex-
hibitions are held.

Government Built Coast Guard
Air Base In St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is also the loca-
tion of the U. S. Coast Guard Air


Base, situated at the eastern point
of Bayboro Harbor and the Al-
bert Whitted Airport. In addition,
certain patrol boats of the Coast
Guard are stationed here.
During the past year the United
States Government has establish-
ed at St. Petersburg a U. S. Mar.,
time Training School.


THE FAMOUS RECREATION PIER


D'"


.- *.~l -


This is St. Petersburg's famous recreation pier, known through-
out the country as a beauty spot. It is small wonder that St. Peters-
burg, in only half a century, has grown to be a city of more than sixty
thousand residents, entertaining annually about 300,000 visitors from
all parts of the United States. At this famous recreation pier, scores
of soldiers enjoy themselves daily.


Big Opportunity Offered "Rookie"

Who Joins Technical Training Center


The St. Petersburg Army Air
Forces Technical Training cen-
ter, one of seven established in
various parts of the country, of-
fers the recruit of today a big
opportunity.
Once the "rookie" has success-
fully completed his basic training
here and has been classified, he
is sent to one of a dozen or so
technical schools for which he
was qualified.
The recruit may also be sent
to one of the numerous privately-
owned civilian mechanic schools
that have been incorporated into
the training school chain as aux-
iliary units. Graduates of the ad-
vanced mechanics courses have an
opportunity to study the latest
technical developments in the fac-
tories of some 20 leading aircraft
manufacturers who have been pro-
ducing combat planes and engines
for the air forces.
Course's for which the St. Peters-
burg trainee may qualify include
some that he may convert to cash
after the victory. He may become
a trained and experienced radio
operator, radio mechanic, aircraft
machinist, metal worker, welder,
Link trainer instructor, parachute
rigger, teletype operator, power
plant, instrument or propeller ex-
pert, electrician, weather fore-
caster, aircraft armorer, pho-
tographer, power turret mechanic,
or either an administrative or sup-
ply clerk.
But do not think that the tech-
nically trained air forces soldier
functions only on the ground.
Everywhere the big bombers fly,
these men are also members of the
flight crew-radio experts, aerial
photographers, gunners and flight
engineers.
The air forces principal tech-
nical schools which train the en-
listed men for active "line duty"
are at Chanute Fieild, Ill., Scott
Field, Ill., Sheppard Field, Tex.,
Lowry Field, Colo., and Keesler
Field, Miss. Plans for about seven
other schools in various sections
of the nation are being rushed to
completion.
The recruits in St. Petersburg
are drawn from new army per-
sonnell making "above average"
on the general classification tests
given them at the reception cen-
ters from which they are sent. A
large percentage of the men as-
signed to the technical training


command here are from the group
of soldiers that have made 100 or
better on this first and most im-
portant examination given sol-
diers upon induction into the
army. An inductee who wishes to
eventually become an airplane
mechanic is urged to redouble his
efforts on the classification tests


TRAINING CENTER OFFERS
SOLDIERS SPORTS MENU

In 'its vast technical training
program, the army has by no
means overlooked the health,
athletic and recreational side of
the soldier's life.
Under the supervision of Sec-
ond Lieutenant ,Chester J. Na-
dolski, athletic and recreation
officer, a varied program of
sports and other activities has
been planned to meet the assort-
ed tastes of the men stationed
at the Army Air Forces Replace-
ment Training Center here.
"Soldiers with all kinds of
backgrounds are pouring in,
here steadily and our aim is
to please is many of them as
is possible," Lieutenant Nadol-
ski said. "We will try to ar-
range, as time goes along, a
program which will utilize every
available facility in St. Peters-
burg."

4,937,377 CARS PASS
GANDY BRIDGE GATES

Figures recently released by
Gandy bridge officials revealed
that nearly 5,000,000 automo-
biles headed toward St. Peters-
burg, have passed over'the city's
connecting link -with Tampa
since it was officially opened
Nov. 20, 1924. The exact fig-
ures show that 4,937,377 St.
Petersburg bound cars have
crossed the span since it was
opened.

ST. PETERSBURG IS
A CITY OF HOMES

St. Petersburg's population takes
a tremendous jump during. the
winter months and for that rea-
son its. facilities and accommo-
dations for visitors are far in ex-
cess of those found in an aver-
age city of 60,000 persons.
As the second largest resort city
of the south, St. Petersburg's main
business is entertaining tourists
and winter residents. It has more
than 150 hotels, more than 1,000;
apartment houses and several
thousand homes which are built
to be rented to winter residents.
In addition ft has many rooming
houses, cottage colonies and other
accommodations.
St. Petersburg's population ac-
cording to the 1940 federal census
figures is 60,812. This is merely
for the city proper and does not
include the many thousands more
in the outlying districts.

Army's 50-Man Swimming Team Will

Compete In Silver Springs Meet, Sunday


S SILVER SPRINGS, FLA.-A A
50-man swimming team represent-
ing the U. S. Army Air Forces
Technical Command from Miami
Beach will present a free 75-min-I
ute exhibition at this resort Sun-
day afternoon, August 16 at 31
o'clock.
The team arrived at Silver
Springs earlier this week to make
official Army Air Forces water
safety movies under the general
direction of Lt. Col. C. L. Brown-
ell, director of Physical Fitness
of the TTC, and with Captain Fred
Fordham, veteran newsreel execu-
tive, as technical advisor.
When the pictures are comple-
ted, the members of this detach-
ment will be assigned to various
fields, posts, and stations thruout
the TTC where they will teach
thousands of Air Force soldiers
how to care for themselves in
water under war conditions. The
pictures will be used to assist the
men in instructing their classes.
The team includes such sports
notables as Wes McAfee, Duke
University football star; Carmine
Orsini, Ohio State swim ace; Hy-
man Swartz, Eastern inter-col-
legiate diving champion; Stewart
Scott, Yale end and member of
Eli swimming teams, and Ed
Jorgensen, Springfield College
swimmer and New England indi-
vidual 300-yard medley champ.
Major D. J. Duval also is with
the group of nearly 65 men as
public relations representative of
Maj. Gen. Walter R. Weaver, com-
manding the TTC. Captain Al Bag-
gett, former West Texas State Col-
lege basketball coach, Lieut.
Charles Grayson, Lieut. M. E.
Potter, and Lieut. C. A. Hunger-
ford also are on hand.
The free exhibition will dem-
onstrate water safety as it is
taught the men by Ben Stanton
of the American Red.,Cr-oss staff
at Miami Beach. Cal Bryant, as-
sistant director of the Red Cross
water safety program at-Washing-
ton will probably, act as master
of ceremonies.
Because the Air Forces swim
team has so thoroughly mastered
its work, Silver Springs has in-
vited commanding officers of
nearby Army, Navy, Marine, Air
Forces, and Coast Guard bases
and stations to be guests of the
management along with their rec-
reation directors .and physical
training instructors.
The Air Forces unit is one of
three service groups at Silver
Springs this week filming water
safety movies, the other units rep-
resenting the Coast Guard, with
Lieutenant Pat Murphy in charge,
and the Navy, with Lieut. Charles
Duncan heading a crew of eight.

SERVICE PROVIDED
BY TWO RAILROADS

Two railroads, the Atlantic
Coast Line and the Seaboard Air
Line, have terminals in St. Peters-
burg. During the winter season
both lines double their passenger
service to the city with through
pullman service to and from all
principal cities of the North and
East.
The passenger station of the At-
lantic Coast Line is located at First
avenue and Third street south and'
that of the Seaboard Air Line is
at Ninth street and Second ave-
nue south.

,HERE'S LOCATION OF
ST. PETERSBURG

About 'half way d'wn the west
coast of Florida a little sub-
peninsula extends out into the
waters of the Gulf of Mexico and
Tampa Bay. It is called Pinellas
County, and on the southern end
of this peninsula, almost sur-
rounded by the waters of Tampa
Bay and the Gulf, is located St.
Petersburg. Many years ago a
group of eminent scientists, seek-
ing a location for a health city,
had selected this piece of land
as "the healthiest spot on earth."
St. Petersburg has thirty-three
miles of waterfront, including
many bayous and inlets, and with-
in the city are several lakes to
add to the beauty of the commun-
ity. To the west of St. Petersburg
stretches a long chain of beau-
tiful islands along which are
many miles of white sand beaches.
These islands are connected with
the mainland by- several cause-
ways and bridges. Within the city
limits are 52.5 square miles of land
area, wisely brought under the
direction of the city government
so that its future, development may
be controlled in the proper man-
ner. For industry, commerce or
good living the location of St.
Petersburg is unexcelled.

Homesick Boys

Get Entertainment

At Service Club

Boys who are hundreds of miles
away from home-soldiers, sail-
ors and marines-"feel at home"
when they visit the Service Men's
center, 256 Beach drive north.
They are all members of the
St. Petersburg Army Air Forces
Replacement Training center, and
they are training right here for
a future meeting with the Axis.
In the homelike atmosphere of
the Service Center, day after day
soldiers -and sailors are striking
up friendships that no doubt will
endure through their lifetime.
The weekly visits from soldiers and
sailors have totaled well over the
6,000 mark.
Horseshoe courts, ping-pong ta-
bles, home-cooked meals at cost.
invigorating baths in homelike
bathrooms, dancing lessons, read-
ing and writing rooms-those' are
just a few of the things that at-
tract the soldiers and sailors to
the friendly Service Men's cen-
ter. Then, too, there are hun-
dreds of attractive young women,
who are on the approved list of
junior hostesses. These members
are on hand nightly to assist in
providing wholesome entertain-
ment for the visiting soldiers and
sailors.
The Service Men's center is a
basic community project, directed
by the civilian defense office, and
more than 500 women already are
working in the recreation division
to provide the homelike type of
entertainment which is being of-
fered nightly to the boys during
their leisure hours.
Various organizations are co-
operating with the recreation di-
vision and Service Men's center
committee in providing entertain-
ment programs. One night each
week is sponsored by the Junior
college, Avi-Aides, the Panhellenic
association and the Y. W. C. 4.
In addition, other organizations
assume occasional responsibility
for many gay parties.

Farewell

(Continued from Page 5)
enough to be a good soldier. And
being a good soldier means more
than drilling and marching and
fighting-and dying.
It means living-in a man's
world-as a man should live.
There is an inclination on the
part of too many men, once they
are in the army-away from the
influences of home and family
and reputation-to cut loose, go
the gaits. There is in the army,
as in civilian life, every type of
manhood and of every social
strata. The choice is yours.
Men, like water, ultimately seek
their own level-in the army as
elsewhere. Don't lower your
standards, Bill.
Then, there is the matter of
soldiering. The fellows who have
difficulty with army life are those
who refuse to adjust themselves
to the rigid discipline that, al-
though quite stern and harsh, is
as necessary as are guns and
tanks and planes. The "yes, sir"
men are those who get along in
the army.
To attempt to buck the game is
folly. The army is bigger than
any man in it. Failure to become
a working part of it is the worst
mistake any soldier can make.
Army life is not easy. To culti-
vate a mental feeling of resent-
ment and self pity can only make
it more difficult. That is true of
any station in life.
So, I hope, Bill, that you will
be able to accept your lot in this
grim business as- just another
chapter in life's exacting school
of experience and endeavor to get
out of it something worth while;
something that will help in the
years ahead.
You can always find that some-
thing if you search diligently for
it. Never cease searching.
I am saying these things to you
-not because you are different
to the millions of other young
men who have gone and are go-
ing out to engage in this world
contest in death-but because you
are of my own flesh and blood.
Because, man though you are,
you will ever be that little boy
of mine.
The uniform that will shortly
be issued to you stands for the
high and noble principles upon
which this nation was founded
and has since existed-principles
that, to much of the rest of the
world, are unknown. It stands
for freedom among men and na-
tions; the right to live and the
will to let live. It stands for
humanity, civilization, Christian-
ity.
It has never gone to war except
in defense of the principles for
which it stands. It has never
gone on a rampage of conquest
or oppression. That uniform,
Bill, is the hope of Old Glory and
130 million Americans. It is the
hope of civilization. Wear it
proudly.
I remember well that day, al-
most twenty-four years ago, when,
while sitting in a lecture period at
at Camp Gordon, I was handed a
telegram that announced that you
had made me a father. I was the
soldier, then. You were the war
baby.
I remember the day, four
months later, when I gazed for
the first time upon your face. I
remember every day of your life
since that time. I shall watch-
and pray-every anxious day for
your safe return.
When you have a son of your
own some day, as I hope you
shall, you will know what I mean.
I hope your going to the army will
be more successful in freeing


your sons from the scourge ol
war than mine was for you.
There are two things that I
want to give you, Bill, as you go
to join other fathers' sons in this
business of killing, from which
God alone knows whether you
will return.
Both went with me into the
army twenty-five years ago.
One is a khaki-covered textbook
on military methods and soldiery.
Peruse its pages and endeavor to
master the art of being a good
soldier. It may not bring you
promotions and hign honors foi
there are in the army, after all
more mere men than anything
alse. But it will bring to you the
satisfaction of doing well what.
ever you do. It will help you to
learn more quickly what is ex
pected of a good soldier.
The other, also khaki-covered,
is a Bible. Don't feel that to take
it is being sissy. There will no
doubt be times when just to hold
it in your hand will bring a mys-
terious comfort.. I confess that I
read it but little while I was in
uniform. Yet there were times
when its nearness-the knowledge
that it had stood the test of all
time and countless other wars-
seemed to sort of satisfy my long-
ing for you and Mom-lull my
homesickness for all the peaceful
ways of life that had been dis-
rupted by war.
Take them, Bill, and use them.
Make 'the most of the army and
come back a better man than
when you left. There is, you know,
a personal as well as a national
victory to be won.
It seems a bit silly, doesn't it,
to send you away with a gun in
one hand and a Bible in the other?
The gun to kill. The Bible: "Thou
Shalt Not." There is no explana-
tion except that the gun appears
for the present to be necessary
to our national security. The
Bible has ever been our hope of
eternal security.'
Learn to use the gun, Bill, but
to rely finally, upon the Bible.
And may the Good Lord-al
though I confess it a big assign-
ment-watch over and keep you,


the guardians of American free- and those who go with you as

The salutes are really snappy
these days. The classes in Mili-

the little things we get careless
about. Let's stay on the ball, men,
and not have to be reminded
again.
Pvt. i.:urran is on the disabled
list these days. His broken finger
is being used to advantage. There
are so many things that he can't
do. It is a shame that it isn't his
toe, so he would have an excuse
for NOT taking hikes.
Pvt. Gray slid for third base

505th Reg. Ist Reptg 685th Sig. A.W. Bept.
I __--


iL company
i:- '


By PVT. Ji Di SANDIFER.
Admitting our journalistic tal-
ent, if any, is decidedly weak, we
confess that our ego is completely
deflated, our pride seriously
wounded, and our honest efforts
made to seem futile when we are
quite pungently reminded that as
a newspaper man we should make
a wonderful dish-washer. As a
result of this caustic opinion
frankly given, the usual fun which
accompanies the preparation of
the column is missing. However,
the show must go on; or-more
appropriately--the story must be
written.
Tech 5th James J. Poulos is in
the company again and looking
quite well after his operation
and hospitalization. You're a lucky
boy, Jim, to be able to. spend the
remainder of your convalescence
at home.
Sgt. Tech. John J. Hatala gave
us a very stunning modeling of
his brand new fatigue hat, show-
ing the variety of styles in which
the hat can be worn.
We wondered about the per-
sistence of Tech 5th Joseph A.
Wisniewski's efforts to get to
town recently. A little investing,
tion revealed Joe's little girl back
home is having a birthday, and
he wanted to say "many happy
returns."
The company extends a hearty
welcome to three newcomers.
They're T/5th George C. Garner,
Pvts. James J. Cunningham, and
Philip J. Kocienski, and they'll
help make an even better com-
pany, we're sure.
T!4th Flavil J. Elrod is quite
proud of the little daughter back
home whom he has never seen
but whose picture hw, grinningly
exhibits.
T/5th Brady Carpenter is eljoy-
ing "them thar hills" of West Vir-
ginia, going by way of the fur-
lough route.
Sgt. Raymond T. Vallely had the
occasion several nights ago to
demottitrate his medical abilities.
Ask him how to cure hiccoughs
or a severe cold.

Specials


By PVT. ROBERT M1. HENNING
This week's stars go to the boys
wearing the new stripes around
the 685th. Well deserved, fel-
lows, and congratulations!
Of a private nature to Pvt. Kap-
lan And T/5th King: We hear you
were joy riding in Sarasota and
had a few embarrassing moments.
What are the details? Let us
in on it.
Presumably, Pvt. Bill Seals must
be lazy or perhaps he's just sav-
ing paper. Anyway, he wrote ONE
letter to TWO girls.
Perhaps this outfit should be
tagged the "Bachelors," instead
of "Specials." As far as your cor-
respondent knows, there has not
been a single marriage in the
company since it was activated.
Being of a curious nature, we
would like to know when Mias-
ter Sergeant Webb (Chattanooga
Variety) sleeps. He works all
night and most of the day and
still finds time to get into town.
Another Edison, perhaps.
We don't mind acting as mes-
senger boy, Sergeant Chase, but
has she got a sister?
Glad to see the smiling faces
of Corporals Thornhill and Rob-
inson around after a brief respite
in the hospital.
.The girls of Sarasota have hung
the monicker of "Rabbit" on one
of our fair lads. It seems the
whole community has taken to the
name. What's the reason for this,
Jerry- Not yotr ears?
Picture of an impatient sol-
dier: Staff Sergeant Applequist,
the other night, when his wife's
train was delayed eight hours.
Pet Peeves: Pvts. Sherwood and
John Prince sitting up half the
night arguing the respective
merits of blondes and brunettes.
Which reminds us, we've got
a date with a blonde.

To me it seems a hundred years.

Technical Sergeant Clinton
Preston bids farewell to his bud-
dies of the 564th SAW Bn. Sep.
and his numerous friends at Drew
Field. The energetic and likeable
sergeant leaves for Ft. Belvoir,
Va., to prepare himself for a sec-
ond lieutenant in the Engineering
Corps on August 19.
Preston was born in 1917, the
year the United States entered the
-first World War, at Dover, N. H.
Clinton graduated from Dover
High, where he starred in foot-
ball and track. The Sarge covered
the 100-yard dash in 9.8 and pole
vaulted 13 feet five inches while
wearing the colors of Dover High
School.
Following his graduation from
high school in 1935, Preston en-
listed in the Army at-Portland, .
Maine. He was assigned to the
Schofield : Barracks, in Hawaii, -
serving with 11th SignalCompany.
He was later transferred to 9th
Signal Service Company at Ft.
Shafter, Hawaii. From there, Pres-
ton traveled to 15th Service Com-
pany at Ft. Monmouth, N. J. When
the Air Craft Warning Companies o
were organized, the Sergeant was
assigned to the First AWS Com-
pany at Ft. Monmouth, N. J. After
a complete schooling in Air Craft
Warning, Preston was shipped to
the 2nd Operations Company, ,
Mitchell Field, Long Island.
His next assignment was Head- a
quarters and Headquarters Com-
pany of the 3rd Interceptor Com-
mand at Drew Field, Fla, Clinton's C
next stop was the Plotting Com- V
pany of the 503rd Air Craft Warn- i
ing Battalion, where he instructed u
in various courses of Air Craft a
Warning. h
When the 564th Battalion was
organized, Preston was assigned o
to the Plotting Company where h
he stayed for the past three
months. At present he is with d
the 2nd Reporting Company of t
the 564th.

Head Cutters

By SGT. WILLIAM H. WALKER.
The company usually bustling
with activity passed a quiet and
uneventful week, leaving its cor-
respondent with precious little
material for this issue.
As might be expected, the State
of Texas again grabs the lime-
light. S/Sgt. Frank H. Orr, Motor
Sgt., has returned from a fur-
lough spentin Sweeney. While it
has been rumored that Sweeney
is way out in the arid part of
the state, there have been re-
ports that Sweeney has been sub-
jected to "high water" that has
at times impeded the return of fur-
loughing soldiers.
We lost four men this week
to the 21st Bomb. Group at Mac
Dill Field. T/5Gr. Oran E. Cook,
better known as "Crook the
Cook," Pvt. E. L. Evans, Pvt. Dia-
mond H. Harrison, another Texas
Ranger, and Pvt. Royal A. Gobel,
also a Texan, left us to become
Gunners. We wish them all luck.
We'll miss the West Texas songs
and stories as put out by Goebel.
He claimed that his home town
of Kaufman was no gas-station-in-
-the-middle-of-nowhere. He aug-
mented his claim by stating that
a certain fast coast-to-coast rattler
roared thru the town every nite
and that if the natives weren't'
quick to shut the windows, the
swish of the train sucked the
sheets right off the beds.

In addition to the outfit's normal
activity, we had a very pleasant
surprise this past week-end when
'pl. Smiljanich wedded our Miss
Warren. I say "ours" because
liss Warren has been one of
s in the Base Personnel office,
nd a sweller person would be
ard to find. As for Smiljanich,
yell, we don't have to say an-
ther word. Congratulations and
oads of luck, Corporal and Mrs.!
After just missing last week's
deadline with the biggest news
hat hit the squadron for a long
ime, we think it only proper
o report that Major Hardwick is
ow at Myrtle Beach, S. C. Our
ew C.O. is Captain Schneider,
formerly the Base PX Officer.
Congratulations, Captain Schnei-
er, and best of luck.
While on a congratulatory
lane, may I congratulate Lt.

Little Dan Cupid certainly had'

onnel Office.

Congrats to Bob Ralston on

Superman Artist

Draws Cartoons

For Drew Echoes

At one time or another every
moviegoer has seen the animated
movie cartoons produced by Max
Fleischer. One of the men who
helped to create the Fleischer
"movietoons," Pfc. Harry Lampert,
25, of New York City, is now sta-
tioned at Drew Field.
He started with Fleischer when
only 16!/ years old, and worked
as an animator in' the planning
department of Fleischer's New
York studios for five and one-half
years. Although Pfc. Lampert did
not obtain any formal art instruc-
tion, he studied under Raphael
Soyer, the wellknown painter, for
three and one-half years while
working at Fleischer's.
In 1938 Fleischer moved his
studios from New York and from
then until Feb. 12 of this year,
the date of his induction inTo the
Army at Fort Dix, N. J., Lampert
worked for the Superman (comic
strip) publications-Flash Comics,
All-American Comics, and the
World's Best Comics-completing
about 1,000 pages of his comic
relations the King, dealing with
a master of the skies, and the
Red, White and Blue, dealing with
the Army, Navy and Marines.
PEc. Lampert was stationed at
Camp Crowder, Mo., from March
of this year until he came to Drew
in May, and while at Camp Crow-
der he produced cartoons for the
camp paper. At present he is
working for his signal corps out-
fit as well as contributing to The
Drew Field Echoes.

Drew Nine
Strengthened
Drew Interceptors resumed
action on Thursday against the
Tasco Shipbuilders in a West
Coast .league game after a
week's layoff. The game will
not appear in this issue of the
Echoes but will be in next
week's copy.
Up to the present date the
Interceptors have won 30 games
while losing 16.
Several new players have
been added to the team and
will give the club more
strength at the plate and in
the field for the remaining
games in the West Coast league.
Two of Drew's regulars, Sgt.
Fre-d Swindells, pitcher, and
Eddie Klimczak, second base-
nman, will be back with the
Leub after a furlough at home
and will put the club to full
strength.

After an absence of one week
in the Drew Field Echoes, the
Medical Detachment of the 564th
returns to announce the loss of
six of its men to the Bombardiers
-three to MacDill Field, and
three to the Columbia, S. C., Army
Air Base. Good luck to all of
tlim!
Announced herewith the death
of Looey Turtle and the mercy
killing of Blitzkrieg, the cat. The
latter came into contact with a
truck and it seems the truck won.
That isn't the only Blitzkrieg
that was killed, though. There
was one, .we believe, across the
ocean, and its sponsors certainly
are not happy these days.
About our officers: Captain
Shapley is back after an absence
of about two weeks; Lt. Harris is
planning to continue the weekly
classes in Ambulance Loading
and Litter Drill for the Red Cross
Women's Ambulance Corps this
Saturday; Lt. Alden leaves on the
20th for ten days without sick
call; Lt. Abbott is attending a gas
course this week, and it's pretty
sure that from now on he'll have
his frankfurters WITHOUT mus-
tard; Lt. Morse is very busy these
days trying to get the soldiers of
Drew Field in good chewing or-
der, and is working overtime at
the Dental Clinic with his drill.
Pvts. Moses and Tharp have
their wives in' Tampa now; no
wonder they go around in a daze
these days.
Strictly off the record, but one
private came into the Dispensary
the other day complaining about
"Syphilitic Feet." Has anyone a
cure for it?
Major LeFevre is expected back

Sunday. Welcome home, Major!
But don't-get startled by the rail-
road tracks behind your head-
quarters. Just another of the many
face-liftings Drew- Field is 'under-
going these days.
Pfc. Lumpe is back from his
special duty at the runway. It
seems he made all the pilots
nervous watching them from the
driver's seat of his ambulance.
It's amazing what Pfc. Eichorn
can do with a piece of wood and
a hammer. Any day now we -ex-
pect to see him build a perfect
two-story barrack with' nothing
but three two-by-fours, four nails,
and an excellent ability for appro-
priation.
Incidentally, today is August
14th. One year ago today the 530th
Signal Aircraft Warning Company
arrived at Drew Field from Max-
well Field, Montgomery, Alabama.
Quite a change in our field since
that date, when the entire new
area was nothing but trees, grass,
and swamps.

OUR INCH

By SGT. JAY F. CAREY.
About the first thing of im-
portance that came off this week
is the death of our little black
pup, "Half Track." I guess he
was run over by a truck or some-
thing. Anyway you-all can't real-

ize how it hurt. all of us to find
him lying out there on the road.
He's been buried now for about
a week, but he won't be forgot-
tefrby any of us. We salute you,
"Half-Track," old- boy, and believe
us, you were as good a soldier as
the best of us.
Something a little brighter
happened, though ,this week.
T/5Gr Lloyd Alliston took off in
a mad rush for Metropolis, Ile;
seems as though the stork was
racing with him from the other
end. At any rate Lloyd should be
a three-time father within the
next few days and we're hopin'
that it's another Superman. We're
poundin' the carpets for you, Dad.
Another important item in our
lives has cropped up this past
week. Captain Louis H. Klaer got
here a couple of days ago and
he is goin' to be CO for us. We
sort of think he's tops from our
short acquaintance and we're<
hopin' he likes Drew as much as
we do. Anyway, we'll be at your
service, Captain, and thanks for
joining' up with the best outfit on
the whole darn base.
