steel muscles of war- planes,
guns, tanks, ships, and shells-
salavage officers at Drew Field
worked like beavers, opening a
salvage depot at Fourth avenue
and 26th street, Tampa, under the
direction of Lt. Arnold M. Proctor,
assistant salvage officer.
Last Saturday they went into
the salvage business in a big way
and turned over 170,000 pounds
of scrap-iron from Camp De Soto,
the NYA camp taken over recent-
ly by Drew Field.
Col. Melvin B. Asp, Drew Field
Commanding Officer, put Lieute-
nant Archie S. Stokes, base salv-
age officer, in charge and helped
him to load the first pieces on a
truck. Most of the scrap was old
machinery used to instruct NYA
students.
Between 165,000 and 175,000
pounds of miscellaneous scrap
were shipped out by the salvage
office last month. This included
40,000 pounds of aluminum, 1,100
pounds of brass, 22,310 pounds of
crushed tin cans, 25,000 pounds
of cast iron, 38,000 pounds of
spikes, 1,000 pounds of copper.
In addition, 400 pounds of scrap
rubber and 6,500 pounds of rubber
heels were salvaged.

Girls will be girls just as soldiers
will be soldiers. Two WAAC's;
displaying feminine individuality,
went AWOL from Fort Des Moi-
les, Iowa, and were picked up in
Leavenworth, Kansas, by civil
police.
They probably were the first
women to indulge in the ancient
pastime. Ft. Leavenworth MP's
took over the job of returning
them to Ft. Des Moines. Dis-
patches did not make clear
whether or not the girls were
"cute."


Nurses May Marry

And Stay In Service

SSince October 1, members of
the Army Nurse Corps who marry
can, at the discretion of the Sur-
geon General, be continued in
active service for the duration of
the war and for six months there-
after. Heretofore nurses were dis-
charged from service on marry-
ing.
Nurses now on duty will not
be permitted to resign unless re-
placements are available, and
nurses appointed and ordered to
active duty after December 27,
'1941, will not be permitted to
resign during the present emer-
gency.
Those of the latter group will
be released only for physical dis-
ability or incompetency.

Office Moved

The office'of the Base Ad-
minsitrative Inspector has been
moved into Base Headquarters,

From Truck Driver to

Chemical Warfare

Service Instructor

An incendiary bomb was flar-
ing up. It was a two-pound train-
ing magnesium bomb. One soldier
was demonstrating to several oth-
ers the proper method to douse it.
The soldier was Pvt. Edward A.
Mitchell, aged 24, of Clarksdale,
Miss.
Although attached to the Base
Chemical Warfare Service unit as
a warehouse clerk and an instruc-
tor, Pvt. Mitchell had no chemi-
cal experience before entering
the Army on April 23, 1942, at
Camp Shelby, Miss. His main ex-
perience as a civilian had been
that of a truck driver.
Little did'he dream that after
nine weeks of basic training at
Fort McClellan, Ala., he would be
transferred to the chemical war-
fare service of the Army Air
Corps at MacDill Field. In July
he was transferred to Drew Field
to perform the duties of ware-
house clerk and instructor.

684th SIGNAL REP. CO.

SPECIAL
By SGT. D. L. HYLAND
In addition to keeping up the
usual work, we have been doing
some specialized work along the
lines of telephone practice, radio
code study and a complete study
of'anti-aircraft guns. On the lat-
ter, Sgts. Daehne, Zackmeyer,
Madsen and Hyland have groups
that insure all of the company
personnel learning to assemble,
operate and dismantle these
weapons. Woodell should volun-
teer to get us a slant-eyed lady
spy for target practice. The local
telephone company has been an-
gling to get Cuva for an emer-
gency operator, but "Short Stuff"
is still jumpy when he encounters
a charge from the magneto that
tingles through his body. The code
group is quite well fixed now,
with automatic tape sending com-
parable to Drew Field school
equipment, and Lt. Taylor's teach-
ing is producing results faster
than the established schools.
SWe have a "wrong-way" Cor-
rigan in the company; ours is
named Bates. One night last week,
according to his story, he claims
he got on a southbound street car
instead of a northbound car and
found himself at a nursery. He
hasn't explained what sort of a
nursery it was-well you figure
it out. Oh, yes, Bates wanted to
return to camp.
The Sarasota situation is im-
proving. Sgt. Hyland spent the
week-end' there and did not go to
the hospital this Monday. That
suggests this one: While at sea,
the first mate was continually
drunk, so the captain repeatedly
entered in the log, "First mate

WHEN SOLDIERS APPLY FOR

ALLOTMENTS, IT HELPS THE ARMY

Now, weeks ahead of schedule, payments are being made to
soldiers' families under the provisions of the Service Men's Depend-
ents' Allowance Act. That's good news to many Drew Field soldiers
and their families.
Official application blanks have been sent to all Army posts,
camps and recruiting stations in the United States and to all over-
seas stations. Soldiers of the four lower grades who are eligible for
the family allowance may obtain official blanks from their com-
manding officers. And in order to facilitate payments, men in the
service are urged to file the application themselves. Don't leave it
up to the family.
S When the soldier files the application himself, he knows that the
business has been attended to properly. His officers will help him to
fill out the application correctly and completely. And they can tell
him what documentary proof is required.
The family allowance can be approved more quickly if the soldier
files the application. His officers will already have made the proper
military pay adjustments and have seen to it that all the necessary
records are in good order and ready for processing. The soldier is
also permitted to submit documentary proof to support his applica-
tion any time within six months after the date he files his applica-
tion. During that time payments can be on their way. On the other
hand, if a wife or other civilian relative files the application, all
proof required must be submitted with the application.
Applications filed by the soldiers themselves are apt to be more
accurate than one filed by relatives. The soldier knows many facts
required in the application that members of his family may not
know: his serial number, the exact designation of his organization
and so forth. A mistake in these facts will delay action.
Men in the Army who are eligible for family allowances know
what a burden has been lifted from their minds. The knowledge that
their dependents at home are not in want means that they can con-
centrate their energies on the task ahead to fight their way to victory.
Remember: It will speed the family allowance to LET THE SOL-
DIER APPLY. IT WILL HELP THE ARMY GET 'EM PAID.

By4Lt. James F. Brown
(Special Service Officer, AWUTC)
In our column this week I can-
not stress the importance of furn-
ishing entertainment for the men
here at Drew Field. Your Special
Services Officers urge all men
with musical or dramatic ability
to call at the Special Services Of-
fices located on the base, concern-
ing their appearance in further
performances on the field and on
the air.
* The best way to keep informed
of daily activities is to listen to
your programs broadcasted every
morning at 7:05 over station
WFLA.
Thursday and Friday evening
programs are cast entirely from
men at the field with the excep-
tion of an occasional guest artist.
All programs presented by the
field are for your enjoyment.
We of the Special Services Of-
fire are striving to present the
best to you in entertainment. The
Defense Recreational Committee
has been more than efficient in
its cooperation with this office in
presenting shows to you.
"Sorry we can't 'have any fun
tonight, honey. It's the end of the
month and I've only got some'
small change left."
"Well, for Pete's sake, soldier,
what do you think it takes to send
my kid brother to the movies, a
five dollar bill?"

boys seem to be sitting at desks
helping the general, or maybe
only the colonel. It would seem
too that they are practically in-
dispensible in their jobs for the
entire organization or even the
post seems dependent upon their
particular assignment.
There are those who seem to
be ashamed of any duty except
foreign combat service, even
though there is vital work which
must be done that is here in this
country and is classified as non-
combatant. They write to their
darling that they are practicing
with tommy guns every day and
expect to be in Australia any
moment, when in reality their
weapons are typewriters or ra-
dios.
The moral of the story is that
the truth is best after all, for
sooner or later the bubble will
burst and the truth will out.
Many are the lads who wished
they hadn't let their imagination
run away with them when they
wrote to honey chile, "for the
embarrassment of trying to cover
up or live up to those terrific
truth. Take it easy, boys-your
one and only loves you in spite
letters was worse than the simple
of your rank or duties. She knows
and we know you can't fight a
war with only generals.


How to Save Gas ..


Two Drew Field officers have
found a way to counteract the ra-
tioning of gas and tires. At the
same time they manage to get
their morning exercise. Captain
Charles Holland and Lt. Clare G.
Sharkey, of the Third Fighter
Command, now pedal their way
from home to the Air Base every
morning.
Astraddle their English-type
speeder bikes, the officers claim
that this new mode of transporta-
tion is faster and more fun. And
they don't have to worry about
the parking situation either.
-K
HEY, SOLDIER, ARE
YOU A "SKOOF?"

Dear. Joey Dogface:
You may not be a skoof. But
skoofs have been seen and you
may be one of them.
What is a skoof? A skoof is a
goof bearing some resemblance
to a soldier. How can you tell a
skoof when you meet him?
He lounges around at a shambl-
ing pace, with his shoulders bent
over. He leans against anything
that looks as if it might hold him
up.
He hates to take five minutes
to change to 'Class A uniform, and
would never wear anything but
a shapeless, dirty old set of cover-
alls if he could possibly avoid it.
If permitted, he would even go
to a dance in clothes designed for
the machine shop.
His slacks are innocent of
crease, his shirt and tie look as
though he slept in them. His shoes
look as though he had been
stamping out a brush fire.
His idea of dressing up is to
put on a civilian watch chain, a
winter cap, fancy sockg, and leave
three fountain pens sticking out
of his shirt pocket.
SHow do you know the skoof is
a soldier at all? To merely look
at him, one might conclude that
he is a Boy Scout from Balu-
chistan. But he claims he is a sol-
dier, so he must be.
In the foxholes of Bataan, on
the scorching beaches of the Solo-
mons, soldiers don't dress up.
They don't shave, and they wear
whatever uniform will give them
comfort and effectiveness. That
is as it should be.
But to us is given the easy task
of soldiering minus discomfort,
minus hardships, minus peril. Yet
we are permitted to wear the
uniform of the same army which
is fighting across the flaming
world. The least we can do is to
look like soldiers until such time
as we are baked in the furnace
of action into the real article.
Yours,
Private Spruce


By Sgt. John F. Suszynski
Last week turned out to be
pretty much of a "Home-Coming
Week." Pfc. Costello started it off
by paying us a brief visit after
a two-weeks sojourn at the Mac-
Dill Hospital he stayed just
long enough to make arrange-
ments for a furlough and to pack
his bag for a bit of convalescing
up North, in Philadelphia (the
Florida Chamber of Commerce
won't like that, "Mahoney"; what
will you do if they shouldn't per-
mit you to rejoin us?).
The following day, Sgt. Ferr' T
arrived in Tampa with his bra
new Mrs., just as he said he woui
when he left on his furlough....
Now he is in the throes of house-
hunting, and Cpl. Luukonen re-
fuses to be sympathetic because
he just finished going through the
ordeal for Mrs. "Luke," and he
does not care- to expose himself
to a relapse.
The day after that, our front
office dressed up our "new" Old-
Timer, Krewson, in chevrons (2
stripes-1 for each arm) and
there stood PFC Krewson, all
dressed up and no place to go.
The 309th Service Group heard of
this dilemna and came to the res-
cue with a shindig worthy of full-
page comment in any Society
News Feature.
Cpls. W. T. Wolf and Al Horton
of the 309th arranged to have us
all present at the party-Krewson
was somewhat timid about stray-
ing too far from Barracks T-272
alone-and our instructions were
to bring our instruments and can-
teef cups; the latter got more
,play than our musical instruments
("Budweiser" did it).
Sgt. "Atlas" Paterson, Master of
Ceremonies for the occasion, re-
viewed our past attachment to
the Hq & Hq Squadron of the
309th SG, and our association
with Major H. G. Turner as the
Band's first Commanding Officer.
Following a most flattering intro-
duction, Warrant Officer. Baker
led the Band through its musical
paces-which effort, incidentally,
was well received. Plenty of food,
a well balanced show, some jitter-
bugging with soldiers pairing off
in dainty couples, and DeSanto's
Commandos made the evening a
full one. Cpls. Estes and Luuk-
konen, ably assisted by Pfc. Vitale
(the inimitable), gave out with
some extemporaneous and extra-
neous entertainment.... I haven't
been able to find out who writes
their script, but a Court Martial
will be hurriedly convened as
soon as the hunt is over.

Young Officer

An Expert At

Gas Defense

As the Base Chemical Officer,
Lt. Arlie J. Ullrich, Jr., of Indian-
apolis, Ind., is responsible for the
instruction of officers and soldiers
on. Drew Field in gas defense.
Either in classroom or on the
field, whether it is a matter of in-
struction in the use of the differ-
ent types of gas masks dia-
phragm, service, optical or train-
ing--or whether it is in the de-
contamination of a building, or
whether it is the chemical compo-
sition of a four-pound thermite
bomb and its properties, Lt. Ull-
rich knows how to put it across
to his students.
With the Army-s accent on
vouth in order to build hard-hit-
ing offensive -units, Lt. Ullrich
fits right in, being in his early
twenties. He is a chemical engi-
neer, having graduated from Rose
Polytechnic Institute, Terre
Haute, Ind., in the spring of 1942.
He entered the Army on May
10, 1942, at Indianapolis, Ind.,
and from there he was sent to
Edgewood Arsenal, Md., for an
advanced course in chemical war-
fare service. On July 6 he was
sent to MacDill Field. On August
14 he was assigned to Drew Field.

309th Service Group
Hq. & Hq Sq.

INFO
The Squadron party is now
something to just talk about.
That everybody had a grand time
goes without saying. It remains
for us to extend our sincere
thanks to all the men who,
through their untiring efforts,
made the whole idea a colossal
success.
To W. 0. Baker and his band
the whole outfit sends its appre-
ciation.' You did a -mighty fine job
for us, Mister, one which contrib-
uted mightily to the evening's
festivities.
SSgt. Paterson as master of cere-
monies carried out his job in a
masterful manner. Nice going,
Pat, and thanks.
The food, prepared under the
very capable fingers of Sgts. Ro-
sengreen a'nd Di Cello, was to
everyone's liking.
The li g h ting installations
around the stage and guest tables
were contributed by Cpl. Joos,
one of the best all-round mechan-
ics on the field.
Decoration of the stage and
preparation of the program of en-
tertainment was handled by Cpl.
Wolf, and I think we all agree
that he carried out the job to per-
fection.
In connection with the enter-
tainment, we mustn't forget to
thank Cpl, Whitehead for his help
in arranging to procure the talent
for-us.
The men who acted as guards
to see that nobody got out of
hand were in charge of Cpl.
Brayer, and we think they did a
swell job.
Next in line is Cpl. DeSanto's
Commandos. You boys did a fine
job and contributed a great deal
to make the evening a real suc-
7 ss.
To all the other men who had
their fingers in the pie, but whose
names do not come to me at this
writing, thanks a million.
1st Sgt. Miller and T. Sgt. Park-
er maintained an envious posi-
tion with all the other fellows.
They detailed themselves to take
care of the lady entertainers.
From where we were sitting they
did a very good job of it, too. Sgt.
DiCello and Sgt. Stringer tried to
break in on the set-up, but the
groundwork had been too well
laid and they met with rebuff at
every turn. (Much to the pleasure
of the other fellows.)
Cpl. Jimmy McKinney wasn't
part of the entertainment. Those
gymnastics he was performing on
the stage were the result of too
much orange juice.
After the entertainers had left,
the boys got down to some real
serious jitterbugging. Never sus-

pected that men could dance so
well together.
The fellows were all glad to
see the wives of our officers in
attendance. Their pretty dresses
and smiling faces lent a real touch
of femininity to the occasion. We
hope they enjoyed themselves.
The party knocked all other
happenings of the week into an
eclipse. There is very little to re-
port.
Cpl. Wolf has managed to get
himself out of athletics once
again. Trying to drive his finger
through a volley ball did the
trick. He says the finger is broken
-the dispensary never talks.
Pvt. Dvinoff, a self claimed ex-
ponent of.military courtesy, when
asked why he didn't get up off
his bed when the C.O. entered the
barracks the other day answered
that this was his day off. I think
that this philosophy gives us all
something to shoot at.

Dots and Dashes
By SGT. E. S. PERRY
Trying to write a column today
with all the men away on a
march and nobody around to spill
the dope is like trying to solve a
Chinese crossword puzzle, but
here's a crack at it. First, a lot of
stripes went out last zebra day
so Louey Herzy now sports a
rocker, Britton, Roumeliote and
Whitaker climbed up to bucks,
and Crain, Norton, Knott, Griner,
Hawkins, Goodson, Mayo, Hughes
and Conrad made corporal or T.
5th, and our stripers now are Ne-
grotto, Griffin, Goss, Conn and
Rupert.' Pretty nice, eh? ,
Campioni, who left for O.C.S.
for training to become an officer,
made technical sergeant, which
his excellent record proves he
earned. Good 'luck, John, but.be
sure and keep in touch with us
because there are still a lot of
things we may need to ask you.
That move put Pool in the supply
room and we get everything now
from blankets .to the latest ru-
mors right on time. Big bouquets

put on such swell shows over the
air-we really enjoy them: Crain,
Butts, Baseler and Chandler.
Although the baseball team got
beaten Sunday-one of those rare
occasions-a new hitting star was
uncovered in the person of 1st
Sgt. O'Brien. No wonder' Cincin-
nati finished third; they over-
looked the home talent.
Last week's paper left out the
name of our Air Force visitor-
it was Lee Jarrett.'Is it just a ru-
mor that Sgt. Ludwig is going to
take vows some time in Decem-
ber? Well, he can start right now
to learn house-cleaning. That last
crack goes for a few others, too-
did. somebody point a finger at
me or was it just my imagination?
And when you have money in
your pockets, gigs aren't gags.
And a last reminder: The na-
tives around here tell me that
high school game tomorrow across

swell crowd. It's worth going over
to see-the swell crowd, Some of

DISHIN' DIRT

Here we are fellows--more
news. Two soft ball teams meet-
ing on common ground makes a
very interesting .fight when both
teams know what to do with the
ball, the gloves, and the bat ....
And, incidentally, the use of the
head plays an important part, too.
Although the pitcher, catcher,
first baseman, and the shortstop
claim the spoils, the scores were
9-6, in the MacDill boys' favor.
Oh yes, the tie-up was between
MacDill and Drew Field last Sun-
day. I say, Sgt. Willie Smith,
Drew Field must not lose again.
S. I repeat; "We must be tops-
in everything," so on the ball,
fellows.
The football season is on the
beam-What's that? O.K., I won't
let it be known that we have al-
most given up the idea. Or maybe
the boys have gotten so good the
need for practice is a secondary
matter. You can get too good.
By the way, before it slips the
pen ... .The name of the quartet-
te is-as suggested by our C.O.
-"The 59th Squadronaires." Not
a bad name, eh, fellows? So, it'll
be "The 59th Squadronaires" over
WTSP on Monday evenings at
6:30 P. M.
Monday morning-early-wait-
ing for the bis to Drew Field,
there, coming down the street
(side walk), was a huge soldier
swinging a handbag in his right
hand. His dress was the winter
uniform with the garrison cap ...
as he approached the would-be-
bus-riders a soldier at my left
came to attention and very smart-
ly saluted-there was a howl of
laughter The soldier saluted
was wearing two stripes-and
they were not service stripes. No,
:the saluting soldier was not from
Drew Field-in fact, I have never
seen him before. Of course he
could have been in doubt. .. .
Nevertheless, it 'was a treat for
"the morning after the night be-
fore.
Here is a better one still. Pvt.

Dosy L. Perry ("Jodie" to all the
fellows) was walking his post
when an officer (the fellows said
it was the Major) approached
apparently to test Pvt. Perry
(Jodie) on his challenging. Pvt.
Perry called out, "Halt, who goes
there?" The officer replied, "It is
the Major." There was an awk-
ward pause, so awkward the of-
ficer spoke up and told the sentry
to tell him what to do. Pvt. Perry
said, "You'd better stand damn
still until I think of something to
tell you."
We are missing a certain visitor
around camp lately, Sgt. Adams.
It is because you have broken
some glasses, or has some one
taken your place? We prefer be-
lieving the latter. You're not
broke, are you, "Sarge"? See. Sgt
Calvin Spinner, he'll let you have
a few bucks until pay-day.
Who is the little woman that
knocked big Lonnie Bonds down?
Humph, humph, such weak men.
EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL
ABOUT IT! SAM HARRELL and
ALEX HARRIS PROMOTED TO

money, eh, Sammie? Speaking of

Dixon walking guard Monday
night challenged a big dog. The
dog ignored Pvt. Dixon challenge
-BANG! Off went the dog's
tail. What a lad. I wonder if he
thought it was a "ghost."
A soldier walked into barracks
No. 3 of the 314th and he called
out, "I'll give a dollar to the lazi-
est man here."
Came a retort from Hodge's
nearby bunk, "Roll me over, bud-
dy, an' stick it in my back pock-

Tourist (in, village store): What

I TRIED to enlist in
the Intelligence Service, but they
didn't have what I wanted, and I
didn't have what they wanted. So
the Air Corps told me to see what
I could do with a beautiful little
stream-lined job. I did ... but she
slapped me. I asked the pilot how
come he was wearing a parachute
and I wasn't. He said, "They NEED
ME!" When the plane took off, I
clutched the pilot so tight, they
thought I was plastered there. I
LOOKED plastered, too. He yelled,
"Are you afraid of fogs?" I yelled
back, "Naw! that's why I'm cov-
ered with warts!" He yelled, "I
said 'FOGS,' not FROGS'!" But
I've always been afraid up in the
air. In fact, when I was born I
made the stork deliver me in a
wheelbarrow. As the apple of the
Air Corps' eye, I was rotten to the
Corps. Well, anyhow, we at home
are buying bonds so our
heroes can bring down their
Zeroes. I'm goin' back to .
the wagon. These shoes are
killing' me!. .

9th Fighter Wing
Hq. and Hq. Sq.

"The Fighting Ninth"
By Cpl. Walter Werner
Hi-ho, Brother Rats! After
a little lay-off, the 01' Fighting
Ninth is back on the beam (we
hope!)
If you think this is a pushover
... .writing a column you're
crazy. It's tough to get news. Now
don't get the idea that the "Fight-
ing Ninth" is a dopey outfit.
Plenty happens around here all
right but the best stuff just
isn't for general publication.
For example, "ahem"-have
you heard how "Our, Boys" took
the Turf Club storm last Satur-
day night? They muscled in on
all the best looking gals in tht
place and had a helluva time.
Hold everything (especially your
date) when a backfield of guys
like "King-Kong" Beaulieu, "Con-
voy" Straub, "Gunner" Wilson,
and "Ripper" Keefe take over.
The only thing lacking to make
that Goon Squad complete was
"George Raft" Anastasia .. Too
bad they had to leave him home
to get a haircut!
At another table we saw Sgt.
Frank Masi having a good time
with a couple of Queens. How do
you get to meet all those show.
girls, Frank?
Speaking of Saturday night-
Pvt. Fred Wild, one of our good
eggs from Ohio, and his buddy
"Casanova" Beck have a system
all of their own to beat that gosh-
awful bus line. They rode the
trolley to the end of the line.
And then, Believe It Or Not, a
glamour girl comes rolling along
in a half-ton truck and offers to
ride them in to Camp. (Yeah man,
she was ok).
SQUADRON NEWS NOTES:
Well, we may not have the
world's best ball players (for gory
details see some of the lads from
the 8th Wing)-but by gosh be-
fore our training on the rifle
range is over I'll bet we'll have
more sharpshooters than any
other outfit in the Air Corps.
High men on the range last
week were T-Sgt. Frank Masi,
Pvt. Bernard Giller, and "my pal"
Sgt. Harold Specter. Fourth high
man was T-Sgt. George Posner.
Our roster of crack riflemen
also includes T-Sgts. William
Jenkins, L. I. Stephens, and Clyde
Quesnel; Sgts. Adam Darbonne
and James Askins; Cpl. Leon
Weatherford, and Pvts. Frank
Blackard and Fred Wild. And
there are many other good shots,
and many boys who were lacking
in a little experience are now
bringing their scores up every
week. When we go across, Oh
boy! It's" gonna be just too
bad for those filthy Squareheads
and those little Yellow B's!
It's been pretty quiet around
here this week. And no wonder.
Pvt. Gannon went off on an as-
signment with S-Sgt. Allen, our
transportation Chief, and Pvts.
Pence and Quigley are also on
this job. Pvt. Tom Riley is away
most of the day now that he goes
to Radio Operator School. Yeap,
it sure is quiet!
Welcome back to the furlough
boys: Pvts.. Joe Uczitko, Ernie
Plaskunyak, Johnnie Gara, Bill
Forte, Tom Poggi, and Al Henry
from our Transportation Division;
and to Cpl. Ewen Thomas and
Pvt. 1st cl. Ben Haviland from
the A-2 Section.
Best Gag of the Week: When
it rained one night last week
"Little Chum" Pfc. Wally Haskell
remarked: "Jeez," if I wuz back
in Noo York, dis is just da kind
of a night I'd like to jump in bed
with a good book or somebody!"
Waitress: And how did you find
your steak, sir?
Customer: I lifted up a potato
and there it was.

MAIL BAG
By PVT. J. J. O'GARA
Dear Doc:
The M.P.s caught me taking
towels out of the Hillsboro Ho-
tel. What will I tell the court?
Pvt. Sam Singer.
ANS.-You didn't mean to
swipe those towels from the
Hillsboro you just needed
something to wrap the ash
trays in.
-Dear Doc:
The soldiers don't give me a
nod because I'm freckled. Can
you help me? PX Gertie.
ANS.-I always thought I
had freckles, too, until one day
I washed the mirrors in the la-
trine.
Dear Doc:
I took one of the PX cuties
to a.chicken supper, Dutch
treat; of course, and she called
me a heel. What is the defini-
tion of a heel?
Sgt. Scotty McDuff.
ANS.-A heel is a guy who
would marry Hedy Lamarr for
her money.
Dear Doc:
I am going to have an opera-
tion and ether makes me sick
as a dog. Is there any other
way they could put me to
sleep? Pfc. Needham Snipe.
ANS.-Yes. They could read
you the Articles of War.
Dear Doc:
I have been drafted and
ready to be shipped overseas
and I'm afraid there's been a
mistake-I merely signed up
as an air-raid warden. What
will I do? Perplexed.
ANS.-Ha! Ha! I guess the
joke is on ,your Draft Board.
Dear Doc:
One of those handsome clerks
at Base Headquarters keeps on
telling me over and over again
that he'll love me till the cows
;ome home. Should I believe
rim? Sub-Depot Susie.
ANS.-That's what he tells
every girl that has a nice calf.

You'll find it here and you'll find it there, but without going any distance you'll find
it all in this column, "Around the Town."
Starting next week a new feature will be inaugurated in the Tampa Army newspapers
-MacDill Fly Leaf and Drew Field Echoes.
Bill Bacin, who, like Ernie Pyle, is known as a "Roving Reporter," will be at all the
abs, all the restaurants, hotels, night spots and what-have-you. Look at the picture closely.
ii you spot him just say "hello, Bill," and you'll find him easy to get along with.
"Around the Town" will be a column worth your reading-no scandal, no dirt-and,
best of all, no politics! Just fun for everyone.
You can always check on your buddy where he was before that "morning after" if you
just read "Around the Town" every week in Tampa's Army Newspapers.
If you don't see Bill, he'll see you!


Client: Has this dog a good
pedigree?
Salesman: Tch! If he could talk
he wouldn't speak to either of us.
