Forty-Four Mile

Hike Proves 684th

Are Iron Men

Tough men are needed to win
wars, and Drew Field company
commanders are vying with one
other to make their men the
-aghest of all. Not only do all
"the units on the field participate
in a regular system of physical
training, which includes calis-
thenics and athletics, but some of
then undergo rigorous hikes of
18 to 20 miles.
Earlier this summer one outfit
hiked 22 miles to Clearwater.
Last week the 684th Signal A.W.
Co. went them one better. In
fact, they were twice as good,
marching to Clearwater and back.
SThe march, beginning at 4:30
- a.m., took 24 hours to complete.
Eight hours of the 24 were spent
in resting and recreation.
Starting the long trek fr' m
Drew Field, two sergeants acted
as scouts and guides, remaining
20? hundred yards in advance of
two guards, the C. O. and the
two platoons of soldiers march-
ing in single file on each side of
the road.
On the itinerary the company
halted 10 minutes out of each
hour and fell out for 30 minutes
for a light snack around 11:30
a.mn. At the start of the march the
weather was cool, but became
warm and humid as the sun rose
higher.
The men reached the Service
Men's Club, Clearwater, at 1:30
p.m. Dismissed for a well-earned
rest, they unburdened themselves
of their gas masks, leggins, belts,
canteens and other paraphernalia
and scattered to the beaches,
stores, Service Club and homes
of friends. A small percentage
went to sleep, others went for a
swim, -while still others rested at
the club or enjoyed bicycle rid-
ing.
At 6:30 p.m. they marched to
the Presbyterian Church for a
delicious Southern fried chicken
dinner prepared by the ladies of
the church. In banquet style, the
toastmaster of the occasion, Lt.
Doyle H; Waldron, introduced the
speakers and led them in popu-
lar songs Among the speakers,
all of whom expressed confi-
dence in the ability of the men
for the return march, were Lts.
Kinder, Dragoo, Crawley, Temple
and Basle; First Sgt. Dalmata,
I aster Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgts.
Buckley and Branson.
In excellent spirits and anxious
to be off, the company proces-
sional started on the road back at
9:00 p.m. After the usual rest
periods and halt for a midnight
JWach, the "iron men" of Drew
f d saw the long-awaited lights
., .he air base-at 4:30 a.m.
Medical treatment was con-
fined to a few foot blisters.

Matches LightiUp

Under Most Adverse

Weather conditionss

A new floating match box has
been adopted by the Army. It has
striking bars that will enable
Johnny Doughboy to get a light,
no matter how wet the box be-
comes.
In recent tests, these boxes were
soaked in water for more than a
month. When removed, the inte-
riors were entirely dry. The
matches burst into flame almost
at once when struck. And no mat-
ter how wet the box becomes, the
matches can be struck because of
the friction provided by the strik-
ing bars.
Made of a strong synthetic res-
in, the box is three inches long
by three-fourths of an inch in di-
ameter. It holds twenty matches.
At one end of the round box is
a small emergency compass.


It was an obstacle race, but these soldiers cleared the barriers to take the first three places in the
Third Air Force Obstacle. Course Meet. Cpl. Andy Fisher, ol Plant Field, won, beating Cpl. Ernest
Wilkerson, center, and Cpl. Phil Dionne. ...r..i. 8


Plant Field Non-Com

Wins 3rd Air Force

Obstacle Course Race

Cpl. Andrew N. Fischer, of
Plant Field copped the Third Air
Force championship obstacle
course meet last week in turning
the course in one minute, two
and eight-tenths seconds for the
grand prize of a week-end at the
Tampa Terrace Hotel with all ex-
penses paid.
The second, and third place
winners were Cpl. Ernest L. Wil-
kerson, of Headquarters, Third
Air Force, and Cpl. Philip Dionne,
of MacDill Field. The tiriie was
1:3.8 and 1:4.8 respectively. The
second and third prizes were a
sweat suit and a pair of basket
ball shoes.
There were in the neighbor-
hood of 60 entrants from the dif-
ferent fields in the Tampa area.
The winner of the meet exhib-
ited fine physical condition in go-
ing over the barriers and down
the home stretch as the winner.
All you men who didn't par-
ticipate in this meet will have a
chance in another meet over the
same course in about three weeks.
with the winner this time getting
a free week-end at the Floridan
Hotel. Watch the bulletin and the
Echoes for the exact date.


19-Year Old Sgt.

Type of Youth

The Army-Wanfs

Posts of responsibility are held
at Drew Field by soldiers 18 and
19 years old. Their stamina and
adaptability prove of the utmost
value in the Army.
One 19-year-old soldier at Drew
Field, Sgt. John H. Biddle, of
Chickamauga, Ga., was a drafts-
man in civilian life and Drew
Field authorities are capitalizing
on his skill, experience and ad-
iustability. A draftsman at the
Base Headquarters since March,
he helps to draft architectural
nlans used for the expansion of
the Air Base.
Sgt. Biddle joined the Army on
January 20, 1942, at Chattanooga,
Tenn. After Pearl Harbor he felt
that he wanted to do his bit for
Uncle Sam. On July 16 he was
promoted to corporal, and an Au-
gust 30 he was advanced to ser-
geant.
When asked what he thought of
the Army, Sgt. Biddle replied,
"The Army is the best place in
the world for men 18 to 20 years
old. You get auick advancement
and a regular life. It's a life every
young man should experience for
at least one enlistment."
Yardbird: Is this pumpkin pie,
Sergeant?
M. Set.: What does it taste like?
Yardbird: Glue.
M. Sgt.: Then it's apple. The
pumpkin tastes like soap.

On Monday night, Oct. 19, Gen-
eral Electric will present "House
of Magic" at Drew Field outdoor
arena. The "House of Magic" is
the same show that thrilled mil-

SIt is packed with electrical
thrills. Some of the highlights in-
clude the train that obeys spoken
commands; motionless motion; a
man who shakes hands with his
own shadow; an electric lamp lit
with a match; music sent across
the stage on a beam of light; and
many more.

stenographer in the base med:ral
administration office, presented.
Frank Focht, captain of the Base
Medics softball team, with certi-
ficates for winning the 1942 soft-
ball championship of Drew Field.
* The medics captured the cham-

off series.
Lanky Corp. Magcr Caldwell

against all other competition in
pitching his team to the cham-
pionship of the field. Corp. Frank
Focht did a splendid job in di-
recting the team to the title. 1st
Sgt. Harry Walters also had a
hand in the Medics' winning com-
bination.
A soldier got himself engaged
to one of a pair of beautiful twins
who looked exactly alike.
A friend inquired how he man-
aged to tell them apart.
"I don't try," the wag answered.

Alec Templeton

Wows Drew Men

In USO Concert

Representing the concert divi-
sion of USO Camp Shows, Alec
Templeton,' brilliant pianist-com-
poser and the world's best musi-
cal caricaturist, wowed a Drew
Field audience last Friday night
in the new Service Men's Club
(scheduled to open soon).
He regaled his audience with
the same brilliance of his piano
playing, his clever improvisations
and his keen sense of humor
which have charmed millions of
music lovers in concert halls,
theaters, open-air stadiums, and
from radios and victrolas in
homes all over the-world. The
tune which he improvised about
Drew Field was a catchy little
melody, and his audience re-
sponded appreciatively.
Templeton composed his. first
piece when he was four. At five
he took his first music lesson.
Though born blind, he attended
Worcester College, England, arid
the Royal Academy of Music. Be-
fore coming to the United States
he was already established as a
ranking artist both in England
and on the Continent.

A fetter of Thanks

For a Good Deed

Fer performing an act out of
the ordinary in downtown Tampa
recently, Tampa citizen expressed
his appreciation of Sgt. Henry
Hevia, of the Base Finance Of-
fice, in a letter to Captain S. E.
Burns, Base Finance Officer.
"I am writing you this letter to
inform you of an incident that
happened on a recent rainy after-
noon....
"An elderly gentleman with a
crippled foot and leg was trying
to cross the street at Franklin
and Tyler. The streets were very
slippery, and this man wore a
built-up shoe on his crippled foot.
He got stuck between the curb
and he fell, striking his head on
the curbstone and splitting open
a side of his head and face.
"A moment later Sgt. Hevia
came along and picked up the old
V.entleman from the streets, plac-
ing him on the sidewalk. Remov-
ing his raincoat, in spite of the
fact that it was still raining, the
sergeant placed it over the in-
jured man. He went into a store
and called an ambulance, then
came out, stood by the injured
man until the ambulance arrived,
and assisted the ambulance men
as they lifted the injured man
inside. Only after the old gen-
tleman was inside did Sgt. Hevia
remove his raincoat.
"Now. Capt. Burns, I'm writing
you as the sergeant's Command-
ing Officer, to say that if there
ever was a deed performed over
and above a man's regular duty,
this was it. I sincerely hope that
if there is any official recogni-
tion provided for such an act that
Sgt. Hevia receive same:
"Just felt that you would like
to hear of this incident."
Yours very truly.

Young Army

Lieutenant Once

In Naval Reserve

Although only 23 years old, Lt.
James P. West, an instructor in
the A.W.S.T.U.C., has led quite
an eventful life. In his home town
o. Sainateo, Calif., he had an
amateur radio station and also a
conmcrcial radio operator's li-
ce: se..
From 1938 to 1940 he was a ra-
dioman third class in the Naval
Communications Reserve. In July,
19.0, he was in the California
Ieuitrality Patrol, and later serv-
-ed on destroyers and heavy crui-
se'r of the North Atlantic Sea
Patrol.
He tried for a naval reserve
commission, biut was rejected for
ph,'sical reasons. Joining the Cali-
fornia National Guard as a priv-
ate in the 40th Division Signal
Company, hp went down to Camp
Sa;n Luis Obispo in February,
1941, with part of his outfit. There
he was chief code instructor in
the divisional radio school foi
about nine-months. Meantime, he
participated in the California and
Pacific Northwest maneuvers.
He was team chief in the radio
station when war was declared,
and he went with his detachment
to. San Diego. Promoted to staff
sergeant, he was placed,in charge
of operations and maintenance.
In April, 1942, he went to the
O}icers Candidate School at Fort
Monnouth, N. J., from which he
graduated in July. Commissioned
as a second lieutenant, he was ns-
signed to the aircraft warhiing
service by virtue of his advanced
k.. nwledge of electronics. The
new science of aircraft detection
is an entirely new realm of ap-
plied technology, and Lt. West's
knowledge and experience was
pJ: to work in the B Stage radio
department on August 19; he is
th- head of ils operators' section,
as well as an instructor.

The durability of G. I. shoes,
when properly taken care of, has
been shown by Master Sergeant
David W. Cannon, of a Drew
Field service squadron unit, who
wore the above pictured footwear
for over five years. The shoes are
now held by the salvage depart-
ment of the Quartermaster. Old
shoes are disposed of in several
ways. Those worthy of i'ehabilita-
tion are sent to the Army shoe
shop at Buford, Ga., where they
are sterilized and rebuilt. Others
are torn uo and the leather used
for other purposes. And the rub-
ter heels are sent to the nearest
rubber station.
"You look sweet enough to eat,"
the soldier told his girl.
'I do eat," she replied. "Let's

A Simple Matter
Changing a Light Bulb
By CPL. LEONARD G. RUBIN
It was a dark morning when
the light switch was pulled at
Base Headquarters. The light did
not come on for the. simple sea-
son that the bulb was burned out,
but it should have been a simple
affair to take care of the matter.
It would seem that every build-
ing should have a supply of-light
bulbs for just such an occasion,
so that as the old globe was re-
moved the new one could be in-

Dear Doc:
I've just accepted K.P. for

I'm half baked. Is there a
chance for promotions?
-Pvt. Twirp

INSTEAD OF THE OLD
"$60 in cash and a ticket home,"
President Roosevelt was urged
to consider a dismissal wage,
possibly to be paid in install-
ments over a period of time, and
an "educational" demobilization
of men in the armed forces at
the end of the war. One of the
President's principal post-war
planning groups, the National
Resources Planning Board, cited
these proposals as a "wise na-
tional safeguard." (Washington
Post)

You can hear anything around

you're eligible for a CDD, be-
cause something is certainly
wrong with your hearing apppa-
ratus, particularly any evening
between the hours of 10 p.m.
and 12 midnight while confront-
ed with an appalling transporta-
tion, problem.
SAD SACK DEPARTMENT
The case of the poor disillu-
sioned soul who waited for two
hours in what he thought was the
bus Tine, only to learn that he was
in the outer fringe of the stag
line at the Y.W.C.A. dance across
the street.
EXAGGERATION!
'ho doesn't know how the
felt who, with pardonable
erbole, said, "Why that name
e a name line was so long when
I located the end of it, I was
closer to the field than I was the
bus station, so I hoofed it all the
way in."
DEPOfABLE SHAPE!
Another of our weekly nomina-
tions for immortality is the sage
who moaned the other night as
he alighted from the bus, "I
danced two hours with a Mexi-
can jumping bean, stood in line
until my feet blossomed, rode
five miles in this 'cattle carrier.'
I'm all in but my shoestrings,
which are hanging out, and I'm
as starved as- a Tampa cab
driver."
BEER BRAWL
The squadron party has been
history for a week, but the melo-
dy lingers on, particularly several
of them which started by spon-
taneous combustion about the
10.thround and didn't abate until
darkness halted proceedings ....
Some of the boys composed a
spng as they went along about
the 9th Command which sound-
ed clever enough at the 'time, but
as Cpl. Stanley Shinn put it, "We
just couldn't remember the words
the next morning." ... Caught on
the Cuff: Cpl. Martin Simon, ad-
mitting with shocking frankness
that he would make, as he
termed it, "a lousy general." ...

FIRST FILIPINO
INFANTRY GETS
NEW INSIGNIA
WASHINGTON, D. C.- Mem-
bers of the First Filipino Infantry
may now display their new shoul-
der insignia authorized by the
Quartermaster General.
The symbol, a black erupting
volcano on a brilliant yellow
background, is explained in the
authorization. The Mayon volcano,
normally inactive but now seeth-
ing with rage of conquest, stands
against the golden opportunity of
restoring the country to its right-
ful owners. The three stars, taken
from the Philippine flag, repre-
sent Luzon, Visayas and Minda-
nao, the three principal islands.
To the Filipino Company now
iir training in California, the in-
signia means much more than a
cloth disk to be sewn on the sol-
diers' sleeves. It stands for their
loyal determination to be the first
troops to wrest their country back
from enemy hands.

Scotch Latrine
Rumors Before
They Do Damage
When Yellow Fever was killing
more soldiers than bullets were
during the Spanish American
War, the Army medical authori-
ties found a way to check it. They
discovered that the disease was
caused by a virus which was
transmitted to the human body by
the Aedes mosquito. Once that
fact was established, all they had
to do to check Yellow Fever was
to eliminate the mosquito-the
carrier of the virus.
Rumors are Yellow Fever to the
soldier's morale and they can
be checked the same way as the
tropical disease eliminate the
carrier, the transmitting agent,
and you've stopped the spread of
rumors. Who's the carrier in a
rumor epidemic?-YOU ARE!
By passing on snatches of an
overheard conversation in the PX,
by jumping to conclusions about
certain orders, by exaggerating a
story from your perch on hole
number three, you are viciously,
though sometimes unconsciously,
being the mosquito which helps
in the spread of the G.I. disease
we all have felt the effects of
during our Army careers.
Rumors are not only Army nus-
sances, but are known to be one
of Ratzi Hitlers most Dotent weap-
ons. In Belgium, in Holland, and
in France he started his propa-
ganda campaigns in their armies.
Let's not be parties to the con-
niving of The Rat of Berlin. Let's
not become mosquitos-carriers of
the G.I. disease. Let's eradicate
rumors.
THE AVERAGE JAPANESE
.-as his country's armed forces
today spread from the Siberian
border to the Bay of Bengal-
is convinced that .the war has
been won and that the defeat of
the U. S. is only a question of a
short time. (Christian Science
Monitor).


SERGEANT'S DILEMNA. Sgt.
Julian Headley, of Camp Grant,
Ill., is out-ranked by his own wife
and it's not a WAACy situation.
His wife is a colonel. She was ap-
pointed by Governor Ruby Laf-
foon of Kentucky when she was
the state's youngest trotting horse
driver. The Sarge, if he does ever
rise to the top in commissioned
Army ranks, realizes lie won't get
any ratings because of what lie
does vith trotting horses. So his
wife out-ranks him on all deci-
sions at home.
Private: I feel like telling that
sergeant where to get off again.
Second Private: What do you
mean, "again?"
Private: I felt like it yesterday.
Mess Sergeant: Who in hell put
those flowers on the table?
Orderly: The captain.
Mess Sergeant: Purty, ain't
thev?
----+
Corporal- Where did you get
that black eye?
Private: I went to a dance and
was struck by the beauty of the
place.

What We Want
For Christmas
New York headquarters of the
USO last week held a survey
among visitors to the club as to
what service men would like to
get for Christmas.
In the army, the majority (79.4
per cent) want cigarettes most of
all while this commodity rates
fifth in the navy. Briefly the pref-
erences run as follows: Army-
cigarettes, waterproof wrist
watch, portable radio, regulation
shirts and wallet. Navy-Water-
proof wrist watch, portable radio,
wallet, photos in unbreakable
frames, cigarettes and overnight
bags.
Time after time, the plea is for
small, non-bulky items that can
be carried about and easily
packed. So be certain they are
small gifts, especially for men
overseas.
Time is short for errands, so
75.4 per cent of the navy believe
that a quick working razor blade
sharpener is better than buying
new packs frequently and the
Army thinks it is useful, too.
The number of men who want
some religious article as a gift is
impressive. The Bible and New
Testament are most wanted.-But
the desire of the Navy for these
articles is 10 per cent higher than
in the Army.
Don't give a.manplaythings!,
-No cards, cribbage boards, check-


ers or chess sets. Those who are
interested have ample facilities
provided. And there is another
"no" for .diaries.
Keep up those packages of
good eats, the boys like them.
Cakes are favorites.
Windproof cigarette lighters are
liked... and pen and pencil sets.
Stationery is another preference
... .books and magazine subscrip-
tions are wanted. Books, unless
your soldier or sailor has a liter-
ary bent, should be of the lighter
variety. "See Here, Private Har-
grove," current best seller, is an
excellent choice. Life, Look and
Reader's Digest are sure bets for
magazine subscriptions.
Other high-rated items are
small sewing kits, polarized sun
glasses, first aid packs, pocket
knives, extra GI.I. cap with prop-
er insignia, extra regulation trou-
sers, metal mirrors, regulation
shirts and socks.
"Wishful thinking" gifts in-
clude blondes, 30-day furloughs,
cases of scotch, an end of KP and
guard duty, and, you guessed it,
a set of six-ply automobile tires.
"Lord help us" gifts, things-we-
wouldn't-want veer for free, are
knitting instructions, fancy um-
brellas, bugles, Adolf Hitler's Idea
of the New Order.
When attacked by low flying
planes, every soldier should fire
on them, unless orders have been
given to the contrary. This will,
cause. the Iplanes-to keep above
the range of small arms fire.

To The Dial Telephone


By SGT. NORMAN G. WOOLUMS
"Hello, hello, Operator," is a thing
of the past,
For Drew Field has dial phones
at last.
Now you have the latest, so you
call in style;
No fuss, no bother, no waiting--
just dial!
Remember, remember the days,
the days long past,
When the field was small and
-numbers came fast;
The Field then grew, and soon it
was. found
The old phone system had grown
out of bounds.
Operators were cursed, called
slow and no good,
And you would have sworn they
were made of wood;
No more cussing and begging the
operators at all,
Just use your finger and dial-
make your own call!
When business requires phoning
Tampa on time,
Don't forget to dial the prefix
nine; ,
You listen then, and hear no busy
tone,
So you finish by dialing the Tam-
pa phone!
And then on the base when you
want to talk,
And across the field it's too far
to 'walk,
(This usually happens when
you're all alone),
And what to do?-why, the tele-
phone!
Brother, you have no idea what
you're doing,
Not a notion about the parts
you're moving;
When you pick up the handset,
the movement starts,
For the action's begun of a mil-
lion or so parts!

Magnetic fluxes, lines and selec-
tors,
Relays, armatures, farats, con-
nectors,
Switchbank, wipers, and vertical
pawl,
Doubledogs,-test jacks, and that's
not all-
Parts and more parts, too many
to name, I
But enough tbo make your call
just the same!
But lines get busy, some calls
have to wait,
If a nickel's too much for some
cheap-skate;
If you're using the line to make
a date,
An emergency call may get
through too late!
.. .... a Gn-! 1 ii ,'a
So in case of an alert (you know
the sound),
Get rid of your call and put that
phone down!
And stop to think before making
your call,
That accuracy and speed will help
one and all!

And then, my friends, it's best to
remember
Of things that happened here last
December.
A phone is a weapon, and a strong
one, too,
So limit those calls out and in to
you!

309th Service Group
Hq. & Hq Sq.

IN F0
By CPL. H. A. HORTON
All who attended the Alex Tem-
pleton concert are in agreement
that it was one of the most en-
joyable evenings they have had
since coming to Drew. There
should be more personalities like
him brought here to entertain the
boys.
S. Sgt. Gennerella is doing a
fine job in leading the boys ini
calisthenics every afternoon in
the Group Area. Just one thing,
Johnny, is bothering the boys.
Some of them are afflicted with
heat rash and they are wonder-
ing if you might not work out
some exercise that will permit
them to scratch where it will do
the most good during those in-
tervals when you do the same.
Pfc. (The Timid) Mallick has
something very much on his mind
Sand if he doesn't watch out it
will put him very much on his
back. Watch your step, Tommy,
next time he might wake up.
Sgt. (Satchel) Jarvie and his
father, Cpl. Hutson, have patched
up their family differences, and
peace and quiet reigns once more.
Cpl. Forbes, back from furlough,
is walking around with a very
dreamy expression on his face.
Could it be that the love bug has
bitten or is it because she couldn't
fix up that income tax payment
that is so long overdue?
Who was that soldier who gave
the brush-off to one of the men
when questioned as to why he
hadn't been falling out for exer-
cises only to find out that his
questioner was none other than
Major Turner? Was his face rdd?
Cpl. Johnny Ernst says that
Pfc. (Here I Am'Down Here) De-
Rosa isn't taller than he is, but
gives that impression because he
walks around on his tiptoes and
lets his hair grow long on top of
his head.
It has been noticed that the
new men in the Squadron have
been very lax in making applica-
tion for insurance. What's the
matter, men-let's get on the ball.
If you will come into the Person-
nel section, the fellows there will
be glad to give you all the dope.
Now don't wait until tomorrow or
next week. Do it now-next week
you might be sorry.
At this time 1st Sgt. Miller and
S. Sgt. Coppedge are away on a
fishing trip. Of course we can't
tell you what success they are
having, but, before leaving, the
first sergeant said-that he was go-
ing to catch a fish so large that it
would put a stop to all fish
stories. We'll see.
Sgt. (Muscles) Paterson, a devo-
tee of the Atlas Body-Building
Course, says he will get the mus-
cles that go with the course as
soon as he makes the next pay-
ment.
Now that the Day Room has
been placed back on limits, it is
to be hoped that those responsible
for it being taken off will conduct
themselves in a manner that criti-
cism will not be directed at us
again. We certainly missed the
old place.
He was a woe-begone guard
that gave his gun to the Officer
of the Day to hold for him. But
his night in the guard house
taught him a very thorough les-
son.
Pfc. (Cracker) Jones and his
'enchman, Pvt. Pecsek, are toy-
lang with the patience of the men
in upper bay of 211. Hillbilly mu-
sic is allright in its place, but
you're playing it in the wrong
place.
Well, fellows, as you well know,
Saturday night spells big time for
the Squadron. Yes, at long last,
the party that we have been talk-
ing about is going to become a
reality. There will be lots to eat,
entertainment furnished by
squadron members, games, music,
furnished by members of the
band, beer and lots to talk
about on Sunday. It's to be hoped
that the entire squadron will turn

to remember..

day. Those moving into a higher

new assignments.


59th AVNSO. N.
By PVT. JAMES C. GRAY
Any news is plenty of news ....
But there is no news. The
fellows are like the three mon-
keys-see nothing, hear nothing,
and of all things, say nothing,
even if they do know. However,
they are a happy bunch, in spite
of their being broke. The cause
of their being so happy is worthy
of consideration. That's right,
passes are being signed permit-
ting them to go to town-yea,
"me," too.
Feels great, doesn't it? Let's
not cause any restrictions to be
placed on us regarding our going
to town. Be a good soldier
at all times-on the post, and off
the post. In fact, anywhere and
everywhere. Remember, YOU
are your organization, Always on
thealert, always courteous, al-
ways polite, and always UNDER
CONTROL. Oh, there are many
ways to mark a good soldier ...
and we know them all, so let's
observe them ALL. We want to
be the best all-round outfit .
I know it's hard getting to town
and back to the post; we hope that
will be worked out soon. A few
more buses would stop a few
"dogs" from barking so very
loudly.
Well, the quartette made the
air Monday night. Of course, you
are the judge as to the repre-
sentation they gave you and Drew
Field. We hope they rate those
15 minutes, beginning at 6:30
every Monday evening over
WTSP. These are the members of
the quartette: Pvt. Clarence Mc-
Dougald, second tenor; Pvt. Lar-
fette Brown, first tenor; Pvt.
John W. Alexander, baritone, and
Hubert Williams, bass. Oh, yes,
yours truly, director-pinch-hit-
ting here and there.
Who is it that "double times" in
his sleep or was he "wide
awake?" Yes, that was s-o-o-n
one morning. You 'could have
sworn a "ghost" was ,about.
When you're off duty," what
makes you "double time?" There
is one for you, fellows.
This arm-in-sling problem is
getting very serious rather
"acute." A few days ago, Sgt.
Calvin Spinner was "showing"
his "golden" crowns on the
front teeth. Suddenly, the show
was off and the'sling went on.
Of course we all know how -it
happened-or do you?

A Letter to Hitler...


Naturally you're one of the, t
chinfest, Mr. Hitler. And the other
ing about you. You don't know any
some day soon. Yes, we're the "p
Hitler, who flocked in 1,000,000 st:


Individual

Concealment ...
Concealment from both ground
and air observation .is necessary
for your own safety as well as
your comrades. When selecting a
position, choose it carefully and
consider it from the enemy's point
of view.
Be sure to make full use of. all
natural cover as concealment. If
the enemy can't see you he can't
fire at you.
Avoid all unnecessary move-
ments when in concealment. Your
slightest movement may attract at-
tention and fire.
When you have to move on-
pick out a concealed place to
which to go. Plan how you can get
there without attracting enemy at-
tention, and then scram silently
but quickly.
In moving from one spot to an-
other, take full advantage of the
protection offered by ditches,
hedges, edges of woods, and other
irregularities in the ground.
Avoid the "lime-light" and keep
in the shadows. They are good sub-
stitutes when other concealment
is lacking.
Your face may have been your
fortune in civilian life, but it can
be your misfortune in combat if
it is bright and shiny. Smear it
up with dust, mud or grease paint
to prevent reflection.
All equipment which reflects
sunlight should be removed or con-
cealed.
Remember that fatigue leads to
carelessness and carelessness leads
to disaster. Be especially careful
when you are tired. This "Life
Saver" is often repeated as ex-
tremely important to success and
longevity in all phases of combat.
You'll expose less of your body
if you shoot around the right side
of a concealed position such as a
tree, rock, house or similar ob-
jects.
If you must stay in a conceal-
ment for some time ahd can't
avoid making tracks, don't let
them end at your position. Make
them run by to a dummy position
or until they join some other
tracks.

topics of conversation in a barracks
night some of the boys got to talk-
of them, but you will hear of them
poor downtrodden Americans," Mr.
rong for voluntary enlistment after
your buddy Hirohito's fatal excur-
sion to Pearl Harbor. Yes, volun-
tary enlistments! Can you imagine
such a thing?
We don't believe you could call
us "pure- Aryans." No-you see,
one of us is from Florida and an-
other of us is from New York. He's
Jewish. His name might be Rosen-
velt. He's definitely not good for
us; if we take your word for it. But
he's a sergeant, and a damned good
one, Mr. Hitler. One of the boys
is Italian. He is ashamed of the
people who assist you in your cam-
paigns. Did you ever hear of such
a silly conviction?
These fellows aren't what you
might call "nice people" to know.
They won't assist you to take over
a new country to "protect," or
bomb helpless civilians. No, indeed.
They're very dumb. They're so
dumb that they believe America
will always continue to be free and
that the light of Liberty, kindled
here, will always serve as a beacon
to oppressed peoples. They even
believe that they should give their
very lives to keep that light of
Freedom burning. Isn't that a
laugh?
Well, they all would like to meet
you, Mr. Hitler. Most of them be-
lieve they may get the chance, too.
They have just o ne request to
make: will you wait for them?
That's an awful lot to ask of a busy
man like you. But they're only ig-
norant boys. They don't realize how
much of a job you have. They can't
understand that "freezing" coun-
tries and shooting children- must
be planned and supervised. No,
they don't know very much at all.
But they are so anxious to meet
you. You'll remember their names,
won't you? They're Americans,
Yanks-and they'll be seeing you
before too very long. They've got
a shooting message for you.
