John Garfield, George Tobias



Star In USO Show at Drew


John Garfield (at left) shakes hands with George Tobias (at
right) on Drew stage.


Tuesday night brought the first
successful USO show to Drew
Field. "All in Fun" was definitely
a hit. And as though the show
itself wasn't enough, John Gar-
field and George Tobias appeared
as guests.
An act burlesquing the soldiers
really brought down the house;
only two other acts surpassed it in
applause--the torch sfhger and
the girl tap-dancer (naturally).
The show was sponsored by Cap-
tain Delano of the Special Services
office and introduced by Corporal
0. Z. Whitehead.
Playing in front of Theater No.
1, the show was witnessed by
4,000. men. Every available seat
was taken and before the show
started it was "Standing Room
Only." The soldiers agreed to a
man that vaudeville was here to
stay.
John Garfield's recitation of
Gene Fowler's dramatic soliloquy,
"The Javis Bay Goes Down,"
moved the soldiers deeply. High-
light of his appearance was a story
about his daughter,. aged four. She
recently queried Papa Garfield:
"Are you a movie actor?" Papa G.
naturally replied, "Yes," where-
upon she inquired, "Are you a
famous movie actor?" Again, yes.
"Then maybe you can get Errol
Flynn's autograph for me."
George Tobias in his best Brook-
lynese related miscellaneous anec-
dotes concerning his travels while
making movies. When a soldier
asked him to do a scene from
"Sergeant York," he replied in
exasperation, "How can you expect
me to remember any lines from
that movie when I don't even
know my lines in "Air Force?"
A soldier's review of the Tues-
day USO show might read, "'All
in Fun' was real fun."


Meet Mr. Bodo
Master Sergeant George Bodo,
former Base Sergeant Major, is
now Mr. Bodo-Warrant officer.
Mr. Bodo has been signing pay-
rolls in the army for the past 23
years. He participated in that
grand performance called "World
War I," and saw 23 months of
active service in France. Having
served in the Air Corps since its
inception as the Aviation Section
of the Signal Corps, Mr. Bodo is
temporarily assigned to the 314th
Hq. Squadron.
Mr. Bodo has earned his pro-
motion by hard work, loyalty, ef-
ficiently performing his duties. He
has proven that it pays to deliver
the goods. We can all profit by
his fine example. He is well liked
by his fellow soldiers and held in
high esteem by his superiors.
Hailing from Salem, Ohio, Mr.
Bodo answered President Wilson's
.call for volunteers in August,
1917.
Lots of luck, Sergeant-excuse
me, Mr. Bodo is the name!

Pictorial Story of Drew Field
A 12-page pictorial story of
life at Drew Field will appear
in the magazine supplement of
The St. Petersburg Times on
Sunday, August 30. The Drew
Field public relations staff co-
operated with The Times in
making the story possible. The
Base Photo Lab. took most of
the picturVes, receiving *assis-
tance from Lt. Clare G. Sharkey
and Corporal Radford C. Wil-
liams of the Third Fighter
Command. Don't fail to get a
copy of this issue.

Squadron; Mr. Starling was a
Tech Sergeant in the 327th Ser-
vice Squadron; Mr. McCormick
was a Tech Sergeant in the Base
Technical Inspection office; Mr.
Jones was head of the Tech Sup-
ply, 327th Service Squadron; and
Mr. Bodo was Sergeant-Major of
Drew Field.


Pinch-hitting as "engineer" on
the first train to run into Drew
Field Wednesday, August 19th,
was quite a thrill for Colonel Mel-
vin B. Asp, Drew Commandant.
For more than a year Colonel Asp
has advocated a "siding" at Drew.
Until now, men and material
have come into the Field by truck.
The new railroad spur will carry
troops, supplies, and equipment
to the center of the Field-thus
conserving tires and gasoline.
Involving more than four miles
of track, the siding connects with
the main line of the Seaboard Air
Line Railway. The time for con-
struction neats a record. Approval
being obtained July 7, Major A. C.
Reado, Area Engineer, started
plans immediately and expedited
construction.
All materials for the construc-
tion and tremendous expansion of
the new air base will be handled
by these railroad tracks. The vol-
ume of traffic is expected to pay
for the cost of the railroad in a
limited time.
Wednesday's ceremony marked
another chapter in the life of
Col. Melvin Asp and the history
of Drew Field. Colonel Asp's name
has been closely connected with
Drew Field since he helped dedi-
cate it as a city airport thirteen
years ago.
As an Army Air Corps flyer,
Colonel Asp landed at Drew Field
many times. In 1940, he was trans-
ferred from Langley Field, Va., to
Tampa. In May, 1941, Colonel Asp
was named commanding officer of
Drew Field, shortly after it had
been designated as an Army Air
Base. Later, in August, the new
commanding officer was master of
ceremonies at the concrete pouring
ceremony for the new runways.
It was at this August ceremony
that Colonel Asp remarked, "This
is a momentous occasion for both
myself and Drew Field. Having
flown in and out of Drew Field
since its birth over 13 years ago
I have seen nearly all of its phases
and changes."

DREW FIELD ECHOES


PARTIES FOR
SERVICE MEN

Hatton-Gillett Post No. 121,
Veterans of Foreign Wars of the
United States, and its Auxiliary
will entertain the service men in I
the Tampa area at two parties in w
their clubrooms, 806 Zack street, th
in Tampa, on Friday and Satur- P
day, August 21st and 22nd. Each Sh
party will start at 8:30 P. M. and to
will signal the dedication of these A
clubrooms to the use of the mem- B
bers of the armed forces in this so
vicinity. C
The Clubrooms have long been m
the scene of many pleasant parties H
of these veterans of former wars lo
of the United States. Now, as O
part of their contribution to the w
winning of the present war and in m
keeping with their practices, these bu
same veterans and the members of g
heir auxiliary will entertain the ti
present service men and their th


friends.


For the past several weeks, s


members of these two organiza-
tions have been engaged in re-
modeling and redecorating their
Clubrooms for this purpose. The
completed Clubrooms provide a
ballroom, a lounge, a canteen and
other facilities. Starting with
these first parties, the Clubrooms
will be the scene of many forms
of entertainment during the com-
ing months. Various committees
from both organizations are now
engaged in making arrangements
for succeeding events.
Both the members of the Post
and the Auxiliary extend a most
hearty invitation to all persons
associated with the Army, Navy,
Marine Corps; and Coast Guard,
to attend these events. The invi-
tation includes civilian employees
of military and naval bases, and
the mothers, wives and girl-friends
of service men. Members of the
Post and the Auxiliary will serve
as hosts and hostesses at all
events conducted at the Club-
rooms.
Starting with these two parties,
the Clubrooms will be open daily
for the convenience and entertain-
ment of those engaged in winning
the present conflict.

503d MEDICAL

SHOTS and PHYSICS

By PFC. JAMES L. WHITE
A moment of silence while we
all shed a tear for Pvt. William
J. Fischer, who, on the morning
of August 17, while on his way
across the drainage ditch to fall
in for reveille, made a misstep.
For. some time, Pvt. Fischer was
shunned by one and all, but a
shower soon fixed things up, and
now he has friends again.
Not that the Medics are unused
to moving, having changed areas
several times, but this last time
we took up residence in Smella-
trina Heights (correct), it took
a bit of engineering and some
sweat and a great deal of shout-
ing and loud talk to move eleven
tents from the old area to The
Heights.
The first night in our new home
was a trial because electric lights
had yet to be installed. Man who
let a small fortune slip through
his fingers was Pvt. William C.
Reardon, who had the only two
candles in the outfit, and refused
to part with either of them, al-
though he might have named his
own price.

By CPL. JOHN F. SUSZYNSKI

AT LAST, the mark of "Suc-
cess" THREATS. None other
than the Prophet Kane, erstwhile
columnist, threatens to sabotage
this column "when his day comes"
.that will be when Pfc. Jess
Zimmerman goes on his furlough
shortly, and Pvt. Bob Kane may
move in to take over his editorial
duties on the ECHOES-and all
because your Scribe differs with
him on the matter of a tentative
date for the AIR FORCE BAND'S
debut. Bob still insists that the
Band will make its debut three
years hence. Ho, Hum! Fire
when ready, Bob.
I'm told that the gang of femi-
nine nifties at the Quartermas-
ter's Office isn't at all sympa-
thetic with our treatment of Bob
-can it be that this has anything
to do with "you know what" (NO
G. I. INSTRUMENTS, YET)????
Of course, this is only hearsay;
and since I'm not admitting the
source, you gals can't sue for
slander.
Pfc. Mojmir J. Sedlak, Chica-
goan, recently joined our Band
via Mitchell Field, New York.
His flute lends a distinctly sym-
phonic air to our group .and

DEBUT.
I wonder how our tenants (the
828th Guard Squadron-sharing
the lower bay of our Barracks)
feel about those morning and
afternoon rehearsals which
started last week? Sgt. Elwood
Eaton wanted to forego his fur-
lough, just so he would not miss
these regular concerts .Poor
Sarge!
Mr. Baker is on hand daily at
our Orderly Room, upper bay,
Barracks T-272, to interview and
audition prospective musicians
for our Band. You can phone Ex-
tension 388-F 1 for an appoint-
ment.
Gotta go now-the folks just
came in from Pittsburgh, Penn.
If the Quartermaster had come
through with our .instruments, I
could be "showing-off" with my
Bell Lyre Oh well, such is Fate.
So long, for now.

ON THE BALL

By CPL. JOE GAUDIELLO
Although we are very much ac-
quainted with our C. O.'s cheeri-
ness and conviviality, last week
the young lieutenant was far
'above par. Together with this, he
went on leave over the week-end.
Lt. ,G. W. Noyes called for his
heart throb and is now sailing
aboard the ship of matrimony.
Congratulations and best wishes,
sir.
Belated congratulations to
T/Sgt. Manson Van B. Jennings.
Two more stripes were added on
his sleeves recently and what's
next, Van?
We are pleased to have with us
Lt. T. C. Youngman and Lt. H. A.
Trenner, two new young officers
who were recently assigned to our
organization.
The administrative staff wishes
to thank the very limited number
of men we have for their fine co-
operation in carrying out this com-
pany's share of details. Nice work,


Four Out of 10 In Army



Are High School Grads


The 1942 edition of the American soldier is the most educated
fighting man in the world today.
With 4,000,000 citizens now being brought to the peak of their
training, the educational level of the United States Army of World


War II is higher than that of an:
notably higher than its own coun-
terpart of World War I.
-This one fact, above all others,
tells the story: Forty-one per cent
of all white selectees inducted
into the Army during the past
two years are either high school
graduates or have had some col-
lege training. Twenty-five years
ago the soldier of comparable edu-
cational attainment constituted
only 9 per cent of the American
Army.
The American soldier's qualifi-
cations stand out notably in com-
parison with World War I.
Today 11 per cent of the white
selectees have had a college edu-
cation. In World War I only 5
per cent had a college education.
Today 30 per cent of the citizen
Army are high school graduates.
In World War I only 4 per cent
were high school graduates.
Today 28 per cent have one or
more years of high school train-
ing. In the last war only 12 per
cent were high school nongradu-
ates.
The phenomenal improvement
in the educational level of selec-
tees in World War II as compared
with the Army of 1917 is by no
means the result of simply higher
educational standards. It is due
largely to a spectacular increase
in educational opportuni t i e s
throughout the United States in
less than a generation.
According to statistics of the
United States Office of Education
in 19.40, on the eve of America's
entry into the war, almost as
many men were attending college
as were in high school less than
a quarter century ago.' The high
school enrollment in 1940 was
seven times greater than in 1916.


Signal Hq. Wins

Over U.S.P.P., 4-3

Signal Headquarters and Head-
quarters of Drew knocked over the
U.S.P.P. nine, 4-3, in a West Coast
league game Sunday. This was the,
first defeat for the Phosphoric

Fourst went the distance for the
Signal team in giving up five hits
and striking out five. He also man-
aged two of his team's nine hits.

All Drew Field programs came off
as scheduled last week, and they
were well presented. Several new
program plans loom in the near
future, as Drew Field's writers,
producers and announcers' strive
to ever improve the grade of our
programs.
Speaking of the grade of our
programs, they must be pretty
good. Two of Tampa's largest sta-
tions, WFLA and DWAE, are both
trying to install a permanent
broadcasting unit out at ofr air
base.
WFLA now has a studio ,at
MacDill Field, and is anxious to
have one at Drew. At present we
run our daily show from 7:05
A. M. to 7:25 A. M. from their
studio, and our large Friday night
variety show is also broadcast
from there. However, that will
have no bearing on the final
choice.
Happy birthday to Bob Kane,
who is now one year older. (He
doesn't look it.) Corporal Jack
Hartman played a lovely piece for
Bob's birthday program Saturday
morning.
Your Drew Field presenters
have been receiving some widely
varied. types of fan mail. In one
day they were invited up to a
meal "on the house." That same
day's mail brought a request from
a young lady listener who wanted
the program director to invite her
to a day at Drew Field, including
the meals, so she couv see real,
live soldiers live, work, play and
eat. What won't they ask for next?
Until next week, we'll sign off
with a word to the wise keep
your dials tuned to the Drew Field
programs for real entertainment
and good shows.

"Calling Mr. Linn"


Newly Appointed

Warrant Officer


Calling the orderly room of the
314th Air Base Squadron, the
writer spoke into the transmitter,
saying, "I would like to speak to
Mr. Linn, please."
On the other end of the tele-
phone there was a momentary lull,
a silence of bewilderment. Finally
the corporal in the orderly room
asked in a puzzled tone of voice,
"Mr. Linn?"
"Sure. Mr. Linn." I realized
that the non-com I was talking to
didn't quite get the drift, so I
added, "Formerly Sergeant Linn,"
you know."
"Oh!" There was an amused
chuckle., Sergeant Linn! Well,
that was different. I said that I
was trying to reach Mr. Kenyon
E. Linn and that I wanted him to
pose for a collective picture of the
soldiers just appointed as warrant
officers.
I ,finally located Mr. Linn. He
was proudly wearing his new uni-
form, with the special brown offi-
cer-type shoulder bar with gold
stripe. He was no longer an en-
listed man, but a warrant officer.
Until three months ago, a war-
rant officer was neither a com-
missioned nor a non-commissioned
officer, but sort of in-between,
wearing an officer's clothing but
rating no salute. Since hten, how-
ever, a warrant officer ranks with
a commissioned junior officer.
Mr. Linn, aged 32, a native of
,ouisiana, came into the army with
over 12 years' experience in he
radio field, having been connected
with both the N.B.C. and C.B.S.
national networks.
He enlisted in the army on Dec.
4, 1940, at Tulsa, Okla., and has
risen rapidly through the ranks.
Before his appointment as war-
rant officer, he was a Tech Ser-
geant serving as the Sergeant-
Major of the 314 Air Base Squad-
ron. And shortly before that he
was Sergeant-Major of Plant Field.

Sam Anderson, who is foreman,
was in Uncle Sam's Navy for ten
years, where he held the rating of
Painter, 1st Class. After leaving
the Navy in 1936 he had some
pretty big contracts in Alabama.
Hy Collier worked in many
places with Paul Smith Corp. be-
fore coming to us. He was in the

tor, Meuse Argonne and did 2%
months at Chateau Thierry where
he really got in some good fight-
ing.
Walt Longworth is the baby of

hind his efforts to make this com-

The company welcomes Lt.

Sgt. Primavera is a lover de-

cute southern belle from six sailors
who were escorting the young

an accomplished poet.
Lots of luck tp Corporal Hall,
who has gone home on an emer-

home to complete his case which
he worked on prior to his induc-
tion into the service. (Corp. Hall
is a darn good lawyer and we
know that he will be successful
in winning this case.)
Well, it really looks like the
2nd Reporting is getting on the
ball. It is very rare.that a Private
would walk over to a non-com

With an eye on the calendar we
go to Press. The eye on the cal-

furlough. While on furlough we
will not pursue the normal course
and have a guest columnist, but
will send it direct from Pitts-
burgh. It will undoubtedly be
smoke heavy but, then, it will be
neutralized by all of 'the hot air
normally dispensed in our squad-
ron anyhow.
We were scooped this week by
the announcement of Pvt. John
Poitevant's wedding, but at least
we can offer our congratulations.
Just a cavorting Casanova and a

three field phones (EE8A), two
throw switches, and some wire,
and put in a system whereby the
Dispensary was connected with
the orderly room ,supply room,
Battalion Surgeon's office, and
the outside. All went well (for
two hours) until an electrical
storm came up and the system
was hit by lightning, almost kill-
ing Capt. Shapley. Needless to say
that Capt. Shapley didn't care so
much for the arrangement, and
demanded that the system be re-
duced in intensity.. However, a
more or less satisfactory arrange-
ment was made by the installation
of a lightning arrestor which
worked under a trial run. How-
ever, the Captain's extension be-
gan to annoy him, for he'd hear
strange noises in his office even
when his phone wasn't in use,
such as, "Waiting, waiting, wait-
ing, number plee-uz," and plenty
of clicks. So another" throw switch
removed that technicality, and
peace now reigns. Of course, there
were plenty of remarks flying
around about Medical Department
non-coms who transfer from the
Signal Corps, with this writer
bearing the brunt of them.

invited to enter the competition.
The soldiers entered and did all

NEWS

By P. F. C. MURRAY M.
ROSENTHAL

Special News Item Corporal
Jack Loughney has been writing
to a "BUNNY-DUCK" back home,
which gave all us guys a titter.
But don't let the name fool you,
fellers; it belongs to a Kathleen
Fitzgerald who hails from good
fighting Irish stock, and any name
of endearment that the Corporal
has for her suits her swell.
Private James C. Woolley, "The
Old Pumpkin Duster," has been
trying to convince the boys that
he's a native of Connecticut, but
'bist can't make us believe it,
cause he has that certain Ten-
nessee drawl! S/Sgt. Joseph Gol-
den got back from his furlough in
New Orleans; he seems to be a
changed man.... Can it be LOVE,
Sergeant???
P. F. C. Fred C. Stout has ap-
peared before the examination
board for the Officers Candidate
School. Seems to this writer
that he has the makings of a fine
Officer.
P. F. C. George Safko can ai-
ways be seen around the field with
a big cigar in his mouth .... Last
week "The Mob From Thoity-
Thoid Street" sent him a box to
"KEEP HIM SMOKING." Private
Henry (HANK) Miller hasn't been
receiving packages from home like
he used to. What's the matter,
buddy? Doesn't your girl love you
any more??? Please send her an
S. O. S. as we can't and don't in-
tend to be over friendly with you
if you don't. get back on the beam
in the package department. Pri-
vate Melvin answers roll, call each
morning by saying Coming
"Upp-p." So! The last few morn-
ings the fellers have been open-
ing ranks, hoping for him to step
up front, but he never does. Less
talk and more action, private.
Private Huth called this office
for a correction in his name. So
for our information the full name
is .. Edward (LYSANDER BOS-
CO1 BREAKDOWN UPLIFT)
Huth. HO! Hum! ... such goings
on. .
Your author's dear wife Helen
sent a line to this column .
to wit. "BY BUYING BONDS

DOTS AND DASHES


By CPL. S. C. KATZENELL
This fellow Aarhus-we should
say Corporal Aarhus-is a real
soldier. He's got what it takes.
Although in pain, Cpl. Guilford
Aarhus was smiling when he left
for MacDill Hospital where he will
undergo a spinal operation.
Suffering for weeks, Aarhus
fought off attack after attack in
order to continue his important
position as Company Gas Noncom.
Only on the orders of the medical
department did Aarhus finally
consent to be hospitalized. We of
the 564th wish you a speedy re-
covery, Corporal.

With a cheer in his heart and
a smile on his face, PFC Al.bert P.
Hensley is busily entering the facts
and figures in the Plotting Com-
pany Journal. Back home, Hen-
sley maneuvered a street car up
and down the streets of the indus-
trial city of Cincinnati.

Sgt. Robert W. Ludwig and Cpl.
Jules Feinberg are wondering
when they will see the White
Cliffs of Dover. Pvt. George
Mumaw is today laboring over his
,home work he left Sunday
for Orlando where he is taking an
advanced course in his' particular
field. .... Mumaw is a one man
chamber of commerce from Koko-
mo, Ind The little fellow will
talk you deaf, dumb and blind
about his home town, revealing
the places of interest, etc.
Four prominent figures of the
Plotting Company are enjoying
leisure today. They left Monday
on their furloughs. They are Pvts.
William Watson Anderson, Dal-
ton, Ga.; William E. Henning,
Eau Claire, Wis.; Larry Fogerty,
Minoequa; and P. F. C. Thomas
Mager, Chicago.
We reluctantly said goodbye to
our friend, Sgt. Dewitt Dearborn,
charter member of the 564th. The
Sarge took off for Ft. Monmouth,
N. J., where he will prepare him-
self to be an officer in the Signal
Corps. Possessing an alert mind
and good common sense, Dear-
born should pass all examinations
with flying colors. Recently
elevated to a Corporal, Robert
Butts is considered one of the best
ditty singers on the post he
and his pal, Pvt. C. A. Baseler,
who is an accomplished guitar
player and a singer from way
back, entertain the boys nightly
with their catchy tunes .
The new Don Juan of the 564th
answers to the name of John
Chaga. Five days ago, Chaga
was promoted to a Tech Corporal.
. Pvt. Robert Fite, subbing for
the Plotting Company's regular
runner, Pvt. Earl Burton, has held
the fort down pretty good in spite
of his inexperience. Corporal
Ed Perry's favorite song is Cali-
fornia, Here I Come his home
is San Diego, Cal.

Private Jack believed that he was
an ace,
So he drove GI cars at a very
fast pace,
And the wreck that resulted-
'twas long overdue,
Should warn all drivers and es-
pecially you.


564th 1st Rept. Co. Chats
By PVT. LLOYS E. CRAMER
The company has moved from
the tents to the new hutments.
Everyone is just about settled
now, and like the new hutments
better. Even those guys who toil
and sweat at the Orderly Room,
they too seem satisfied. They have
a lot more room in which to do
their work.
We are very fortunate in hav-
ing two first-class carpenters in
our company, Pvt. Harvey Blanks
and Pvt. Roy Zion. They keep us
well supplied with all types of
their handiwork. This week Pvt.
Blanks turned out an excellent fil-
ing cabinet for the orderly room.
Nice work, men.
Sgt. Goland was seen carrying
a saw and hammer around the
orderly room the other day. Some
of the fellows are wondering just
what he could do with those tools.
Pvt. David H. Kellog and Pvt.
Chester L. Kinder are claiming to
be the company's "chow hands."
Pvt. David H. "Hook-nose" Kel-
logg says he will take on all com-
ers in a contest, any place at any
time, to determine who can eat
the most, loser pays all. Come on,
chow hounds, someone accept his
challenge.
Pfc. Lowell F. Brush has been
noticed wearing a great big smile
these days. He was seen in Tampa
with his Indiana sweetheart. Is
she a blonde, Brush?
S/Sgt. James P. Wallace is no
longer connected :with our com-
pany. He is now attending OCS.
He did a swell job in this com-
pany. We hated to lose him.
Every man in this company wishes
him the very best of luck in per-
forming the duties of the job that
he has chosen. Hang right in
there, Sarge; I am sure you will
amount to something some day.
Also from our company attending
'OCS are S/Sgt. Robert Clyde,
Corporal Wedgwood, and Corporal
Zimmerle. The whole company
joins me in wishing you fellows

Corporal Kaplowitz was just re-

word, fellows, married life is fine.
He enjoyed a three-day honey-
moon in sunny Florida, and now
he doesn't lose any time getting
to town every evening.

to you, Sarge, and we hope you
can get all the cake you wvant.
And say, Sarge, what kind do you

DREW NINE TRIMS MacDILL AGAIN, 6-1


On Saturday the Drew Inter-
ceptors downed their cousins, the
MacDill Flyers, 6-1, in a West
Coast league game played at Mac-
farlane park. The victory was the
31st for the Interceptors against
16 defeats.
Drew's win over MacDill was
the sixth out of eight games
the two teams have played.
Sgt. Fred Swindells hung up his
16th victory of the season in lim-
iting the Flyers to four hits and
walking two.
The Interceptors blitzed across
two runs in the first frame on a
single by Klimczak and a double
by Todd, plus two free passes to
take the lead. Singles by Klim-
czak, Todd and a double play by
Bekeza sent two more tallies
across the platter in the third.
MacDill scored their only run
on a base on balls, infield out and
an error .by the third baseman
who let the ball get away from
him in a pick-off. play from the
catcher.
Todd and Klimczak accounted
for six of Drew's hits with three
apiece.
Bonelli, of Drew, made a long
diving catch of Lazaro's short line
drive into centerfield in the fifth
for the feature play of the day.
Russ Crider chalked up 11
strikeouts during the afternoon,
but his mates did not produce the
runs to go with his pitching per-
formance.

3rd Air Force To

Hold Swim Meet

On September 13

The Third Air Force will hold
its annual swimming meet for the
Tampa Area air 'bases on Septem-
ber 15 at the Davis Island swim-
ming pool. The first Third Air
Force swimming meet was held
last year, September 30, at he
same pool, with the 530th Signal
Aircraft Warning Company of
Drew Field winning it by a half-
point margin over the 66th Bom-
bardment Squadron from MacDill.
The Headquarters, of the Third
Air Force, finished in third place,
with only one point of difference
between them and the second
place winner.
Last year we only had a week's
notice before the meet was held,
and at that time a Signal Com-
pany that was only two months old
came up with the winning team.
This year we will have a month
of preparation for the meet, and
it is hoped that every unit on the
field will enter a team.
Each 'Special Service Assistant
should get busy and line up his
team and start practicing so that
Drew Field will still carry on with
its winnings on the athletic field.

mand, 4-3. The 327th Service
Squadron took the 903rd Ordnance
Company by the margin of 4-1.
The same afternoon the Base
Medics got in the race by taking
the 309th Headquarters Squadron,
4-3. Previously, in a playoff game
for the first round championship,
the 309th gave the "Docs" a hard
going over. The "Medics" say they
are going to be back in the race
this time in a big way.
On Thursday, August 13, two
more games were played. The
327th Service Squadron won an
endurance contest as well as a
slugfest in a 12-inning marathon
with the Signal Hq., Third Fighter
Command, by 14-11. The 314th
Air Base Sq. played the 309th Hq.
& Hq. Sq. to a 3-3 tie at the end
of the sixth inning when the game
was called due to darkness. It
looks like a tough race is in the
offing.
