Drew Field, Tampa, Florida
'Share Your Car'
Movement Helps '
Traffic Problem ,I
Due to the transportation snarl
growing out of the expansion 6f
Drew Field and the shortage of
bus facilities, a share your car
movement has developed on the
base. Officers and enlisted men
who have automobiles are carry-
ing additional passengers, using
all available space in their vehi-
cles for transportation of fellow
officers and soldiers.
The -overcrowding of buses go-
ing to Drew was brought to Mayor
Chance's attention by Cpl. Leon-
ard G. Rubin, a contributor to the
Drew Field Echoes, and Mayor
.Chancey promised to investigate.
"We will attempt to improve
the bus service to the camps if it
is at all possible under the present
conditions," the mayor told Cpl.
Rubin. "We want to cooperate in
every. way, and any suggestions
as to how we can help the boys
will always be welcome."
Cpl. Rubin had asked relief for
his fellow soldiers from the two-
block waiting line to crowd into
the buses. He had pointed out
that the line was exceptionally
long on Saturday nights, 'when
men waited by the hour.
In response to Cpl. Rubin's dis-
closure. Mayor" Chancey got in
touch with Mr. A. Pickens Coles,
vice-president of the -Air Base
Bus Lines, who informed the
mayor that the company has made
arrangements to lease a portion
of the Allied Building as a bus
terminal and to put on seven new
tractor and trailer buses. .
"As you know, it is almost im-
nossible to purchase city type
buses at this time and that con-
dition has existed for many
months," Mr.'Coles wrote. "When
the Drew Field service was first
inaugurated, we operated for
many months at a great loss. At'
the inception of the service, we
were given to understand from
reliable sources the personnel of
of the field would approximate
2,000. The original estimate was
only a drop in the bucket. In the
past year our fleet has increased
300 per cent."
The new terminal is scheduled
to oven by Nov. 1. One of the new
vehicles has already arrived, and
the rate of one a week until all
the others will be brought in at

x units will accommodate 50

The G6s Have
a Name For if
By CPL. LEONARD G. RUBIN
The Army and other branches
of the armed services have and
are developing a lingo all their
own. The following is a partial
list of some of the expressions and
words used today. -
G.I. is number one on the word
parade. Originally used by the
Q.M.C. to refer to items issued
by them, it has come to describe
any item used by the Army and
even the boys themselves, to-wit:
"G.I. Sam," a popular song.
On the Beam is an Air Forces
expression derived from planes
using the radio -beam to guide
them on flights. This exclamation
has come to mean doing a job
well. When one does so, he is "on
Take Off, used at first in refer-
ring to departing planes, is now
used by the fellows when they
depart from a place. They say,
* "'Let's take off." The Navy boys
borrow an expression from their
service and u'se "shove off."
Snafu means Situation Normal,
All Fouled Up.
Goof-off means to do something
you shouldn't when you shouldn't
be doing it.
Cbvzer the Hill is an old one for
Chow Line is not a row of Chi-
nese dogs, but the queue for mess.
Sweat it Out means to wait for
something to go through official
channels, such as a promotion,
Hup, twop, three, fourp is sim-
ply a drill sergeant's way of say-
ing "one, two, three, four."
Carry On means do what you
Eagles, though found on a col-
onel's shoulders, means American
* money to the boys.
Blow If Out means to get it off
Blow Your Top means shoot off
Roll Out means get out of bed.
SIn the Navy it's "hit the deck."
Pull your stripes means to show
authority of rank among non-
comm:ssioned, officers. "Pull rank"
is the same thing applied to com-
Gold Bricks is an Army expres-
sion for a soldier who doesn't do
his job. As a verb it is used as
synonym for doing nothing.

Shingles are pieces of toast.
Slum is stew. Soldiers are sons

Grass is salad.
Sand is sugar.
Mud is coffee.
SOS is save our ship ...- ... to
the Navy, save our souls to the
Salvation Army, but to the dough-
boy, it is "Slop on Shingles," or
"Same Old Stuff." .
These are only a feiwr of the
hundreds of expressions used to-
day. Many are profane. Every at-
tempt should be made to elimi-
nate this latter group from our
language even though it is often
said that it is tke soldier's pre-
rogative to swear a blue streak.

What You Think
Hitting the Axis where it hurts
the most-that's the aim of the
"Nuts to the Axis" contest now
.being sponsored by YANK, the
official Army newspaper. The
contest opened Oct. 21 and ends
at midnight, Dec. 10.
Staged in cooperation with the
Office of War Information, the
contest sponsors want short, hard-
hitting messages, limited to .200
words, to broadcast to Hitler,
Mussolini and Tojo. -
Soldiers who enter must use a
coupon printed in YANK, and
must write on six subjects: (1)
I'll be seeing' you; (2) Here's what
I'm fighting for; 3) My father.did
it in 191.8; .(4) Doolittle was only
the beginning; (5) If I had you in

By SGT. JOHN F. SUSZYNSKI
Once there. was an illustrious
group know as the "41'ers" who
blazed a trail that was destined
-to make .history; Drew Field has
a group of contemporary trail
.blazers "knowed as the 69'ers'!
(AA:F Band), who, last week,
started the trek that will' lead
to .... ???
Following an informal debut at
the 309th Service Group's Party,
.the demand .fr the Band's serv-
ices skyrocketed; and the former
"Five Minute Stands" have grown
to noble proportions. The Big
:Break came when Cpl. 0. 7
Whitehead offered to spot us
one of his Soldiers'" Shows at t-,
Arena; of course, the Band could
not just open "cold," and so we
hied off to the hinterlands .(much
in the manner of Broadway
Shows, :before the Graiid' Preii-
iere) to serenade Capt. Parrish's
.Signalmen at Hillsborough State
'Park. Our men wore their dog
tags, in case anything unforeseen
should happen, but there were
.no casualties during the "concert."
The fact that we returned to Drew
Field intact, served, in some
strange manner, to satisfy Cpl
Whitehead that we were readyfdor
the following night's performance
at the Arena. Bolstered by talent
.from Tampa, as well as some of
Drew Field's Regulars, the Band
again came through without los-
ing a man. Our reward for this
creditable showing was.ta return
engagement .. this time, for a
full hour's show .. AH! Success
An integral part of our Military
Band is the Dance Orchestra .
the "Little 69'ers" bounced right
into the limelight by playing for
the Officers' Dance last Saturday.
Corporals Estes and Hoier con-
tributed no little to the success
of this unit, with their special, ar-
'-angements for the combo. Some-
one must have heard Cpl. Sedlak
sing before, and when he got all
set'to do his stuff at the Officers'
Club, the microphone was sud-
denly and mysteriously put out

dismayed; he threatens to carry
his own public address system
after this. WO Baker 'and S. Sgt.
Eaton were on hand to give the
boys their moral support in the
event that an attempt at mayheti

was the only maior casualty of
the evening. The Officers seemed
to enjoy the music well enough
that there are faint whispers
about a return engagement.

away on a slow start, Lt. Emory's
ball team is clicking now like a
Browning machine gun in the
Solomon Islands. Paced by the
superb pitching of Pfc. Bernie
Giller, the "Fighting Ninth"
knocked off the 308th Signal Co.
by a score of 7 to 2. Besides doing
a consistently good catching job,
Pvt. Leon Wexier was a big help
to our Boys when he banged out
a homer with the bases loaded.
Sgt. Darbonne turned in his usual
fine performance at short. In case
you don't know it that guy has
got medals for ball playing. .

inspection last Saturday. We were
also commended on our -progress
during the last month. The last
paragraph said in effect that our

the'finest Wing in the Air Force.

WHAT MAKES :
It isn't the bars on his shoulder.
It isn't the way he walks or
It's not the way he dresses, nor
his snappy salute. No, it's none
of these. It's the little things he
does that makes or breaks an of-
ficer in the eyes of his men. Take
that night on a four-day maneu-
ver, for instance. A truck driver

He's a crack driver, among the
best, but even the best of them
get tired sometimes, and an offi-
cer who was riding in that truck
knew this. He nudged the sleepy-
eyed driver, motioned him to the
back, and then slipped behind the
wheel himself. The tired soldier
slept the sleep of a contented baby

Did He Send It Back?
The most surprised man in
Northern Ireland was Cpl. Jack
McNamara of the armored forces
when he received a package from
his wife in Chicago at a recent
mail call. The contents were all
ladies' unmentionables, sent him
by mistake by a department store
which got the orders mixed. Now
what should a man do? It costs so
much to send them back, and with
the shortage of such garments
over there and all, and all... .It
has Cpl. McNamara puzzled.
Your job may not seem impor-
tant now-but your work is vital
to the efficient operation of your
unit. Remember, the cook in your
kitchen is just as important and
necessary as the bombardier in the

BUSIEST RENDEZVOUS dui-
ing the week has been the Palnr
Room of the Tampa Terrace. Ad-
miral Kaufman, U. S. Navy, was
host at a Navy Day dinner or
Tuesday night. More than 50C
persons crowded the beautiful
place. Three was nothing but
standing room when your reporter
arrived. After shaking hands with
Wilson and the rest of his boys,
I dashed off to the Hi-Hat Club,
where I learned that "Tiny" Jim-
my Licate, the singing bartender,
will enter the Army next week.
Sgt. Don Flynn and two other
boys in the Service are wondering
how Jimmy, who scales over 340
pounds in his socks, and the Mess
Sgt. will get along at Camp

SDanny Brown, co-proprietor of

Rudy Vallee has nothing on
Sgt. Jeiry DeBonis, Plant Field,
who has been entertaining his
guests by singing Irish numbers.
The PADDOCK BAR threw a

Nelson, of MacDill. Happy
birthday said Pvt. and Mrs. J.
F. Sherman, Corp. E. W. Thech-
berry, Pvt. Alex Snyder, and
Pvt. and Mrs. George Usend, of
New Jersey. More happy birth-
days to you, Pvt. Nelson. .
Spotted Sgt. and Mrs. W. L..Mc-
Carty on the dance floor. They
'must hail from Hollywood--
what a dance team!
Pvt. David McMahan, a hillbilly
from Kansas, who doesn't ride a
horse but sings like Gene Autry,
was at the Seabreeze, Victor Lica-
ta's spot on the bay. ... Have seen
a lot of the boys with roller skates
under their arms. Is it because
the taxis have quit running out
to the'fields-or do the gals have
the mechanized vehicles these
days? Or, mebbe, they were head-
ing for the Coliseum Skating Rink
who knows -who knows! .
Does any one know that cutie
that Staff Sgt..Joe Meyer, editor
of the Flyleaf, paraded through
the Floridan Cocktail Lounge last
Thursday night? Is she from Cle-
veland, too, Sgt.?...
Noticed a few girls in tears last
week. The 118 pound Casaiova
of MacDill field, Sgt. John G.
Swannson, was advised to move
on to greener pastures, meaning
another field. And did he move!

Pvt. John Grochi, of MacDill,
believes in doing his Xmas shop-
ping early. Eyed him at Bryn-
Alan Studios getting swell photos
of himself to mail to his best two
girls--his mother and his wife
bdck in Springfield, N. J. .
Heard Pvt. Duffy say something
about a ring-what kind, Joe-
phone or wedding? ... Staff Sgt.
Harry (Jockey) Webb, of MacDill,
is going to ride again-this time
it looks like down the middle-
aisle stretch-with plenty of wed-
ding bells. You're a winner again,
Sgt. Webb. She's a sweet gal.
Lots of happiness and good luck.
Sgt. Joe Kolasinski of MacDill
is doing okay, thank you. He
sports two girls while making the
rounds before the midnight cur-
few. Why? You should hear him
sing. I bet they miss him in
Ed Warner gave the men
who flock to his Davis Island

the other night. Lt. Hugh
O'Laine, Drew Field, holder
of the silver medal for free
style and figure skating and
runner-up" in 1939 for the
United States championship,
performed for the edification
of hundreds who attended.

THE MEDICAL DEPT. of Mac-
Dill Field held a big dinner at
the nationally known Columbia
Restaurant in Ybor City Tuesday
night, at which Col. Craigo was
guest of honor. More than 100
medical. officers of the field pre-
sented Col. Craigo with a beauti-
ful gift-a token of friendship
ald, 'as Winchell would say, com-
radeship. Casimiro and Lawrence
Heriandez, genial hosts of: the
Columbia, gave the all-out sign to
their chef, Pijuan, who prepared
one of the dishes he once con-
cocted for the late King of Spain.
"Let's go to Rubin's" seems to
be the slogan of many of the offi-
cers and men of Tampa's Army
fields. They.claim that the Rubin
brothers-Manuel and Jose are
really excellent when it comes to
preparing a Victory-dish.
P. S.-The gals' band at the
Hi-Hat must not like your re-
porter. They won't, or cannot,
play the "Bacin" Street Blues.
Will you request it for me?
Thanks-and until next week!

New Yorker Invents,
New Radio Control
For Blind Landing
A New York inventor, Andrew
Alford, claims that he has invent-
ed a new radio control of blind
landing. It has two advantages
over previous systems, he be-
Under his invention, the plane
is guided along -an easy curve
which at no place is too steep,-and
the wheels touch the ground when
the plane is flying horizontally
along the bottom of this curve.
The second advantage is that
the radio antenna is placed to one
side of the runway, where it is
completely out of the way.
The radiation from the antenna
is shaped like a funnel. A slice
down one side of this funnel-
shaped-radiation makes a curve
called a hyperbola that looks like
a U with the prongs forced apart.
According to Alford, this is the
best possible landing curve. It is
not too steep high in the air as
are present parabolic landing
curves nor does it meet the
Qetobe 3D0. 3%I
ground at an angle as have some
of the previous landing.beams.
However,. pilots must come in
on. the. regular beam which,will
-guide them to a position centrally:
over the runway. When.'they
strike the conical radiation, they
will know it is time to descend.
