The Drew Field Special Serv-
ice Department has sent your re-
porter some items you'll be glad
to know about. Their aim is new
and different soldier entertain-
me nt every night of the week.
The vociferous audiences attest
their success. So far. But in order
to keep up the good work, they
have asked for you men to send
in suggestions. These programs
are for the men, by the men. So
send along a few ideas of your
own as to what you'd like to see
We understand also that they're
on. the lookout for talent. If you
sing, dance, act, or entertain in
any way, why not get in touch
with the Special Services Depart-
ment, either at the Base Library
or at the AWUTC. There's some-
one there all day. Just tell the
department what you can do and
what you'd like to do in the way
of entertainment, ahd they'll find
the spot for you, either in one
,of the soldier shows, or on one
of the many radio programs that
Drew Field presents.
As usual, this Sunday night,
there will be another bang up
Sunday sing in the Base Arena
at seven-thirty. 'Besides giving
you a chance to exercise those
vocal chords on some old time
numbers of your own choosing
(and a few not so old-time), there
is a Quiz Program that is good
for some sure-fire laughs, besides
some prizes you'll appreciate. If
you haven't been out to the Arena
to sing on Sunday, try it this
week. If you've been out before,
then you don't need us to urge
you to go again.
Monday is the always popular
show the civilians bring out from
town. Features dancing and sing-
ing acts that can't be beat.
Brought right into your own back-
yard at Drew. Better come early
if you want a seat, because they
start to fill the Arena long before
the show starts.
Tuesday nights the Band pre-
sents its pop concerts featuring
numbers that you've asked for,
and a few you may not (have
heard before, but will sure want
to hear again. Incidentally, the
Band will be there in full force
tomorrow at the Football game
with Tampa University, so you'll
get a chance .to hear them twice
in one week.
A new series of shows has start-
ed for Wednesday nights.. From
now on, Special Service will pre-
sent a corking soldier show every
Wednesday night at eight o'clock
at the Base Arena. This will be
Talent Opportunity night, featur-
ing the best of the Soldier Ama-
teur Talent, with prizes offered
for those who draw the most ap-
plause. So come on out and root
for your favorite. Meanwhile, if
you yourself can do anything to
entertain, or if you know of some-
one who would like to try out in
one of these Wednesday shows,
send around the name.
Thursday night is a big night
at Drew Field. The Defense Re-
creation Committee sends each
week the cream of the Tampa ta-
lent crop to entertain the men
at the Field. If you've never at-
tended one of these shows, now's
the time to start. Ask your friends
if you don't believe you've been
missing something. See you on
Thursday at the Base Arena.
While we're talking about spe-
cial events, don't forget to listen
to the special broadcast tonight.
It will feature a pre-football game
interview with some surprise cele-
brities. A real event for all you
football fans. And, incidentally,
don't forget that game tomorrow
with Tampa University.
With a full entertainment
schedule ahead at Drew Field,
you'd better tune in mornings to
your Drew Field Reporter, who
aims to keep you posted from
day to day on the recreation
events at the Base. From time to
time.he brings you some surprise
guests you'll be glad to hear. So
don't forget to listen every morn-
ing along about seven.
And now it's time for your re-
porter to sing off and hunt up
some- material for tomorrow's
broadcast. So long!
A Jap spy was sent over to this
country to investigate internal
conditions and report particularly
on national morale. He reported
back, "Conditions are very bad in
the United States. People are ap-
parently about to starve, for every
time two people meet, one says
to the other, 'What's cooking? "

Sgt. Lampert, creator of the

You can start calling us a "salon

Wednesday, when we were called.
on to play a dinner engagement-
for the Stage "A" boys of the:
5'lst SAWR (Area F). The band
set up just outside the windows
of the mess hall as chow was be-
ing served, and then went into
some refined stuff like chamber
music and the light classics (in-
cluding "Tiger Rag, with Pfc. Mi-
chael Vitale taking the bows) so
as not to disturb any of the epi-
cures. The gastric and the musical
repast seemed to blend satisfac-
torily, and we were allowed to
continue playing after mess, until
darkness called a halt to the pro-
gram. (Note to typesetter: Don't
you go playing around with that
"Salon" like you did with my ref-
erence to the "49'ers" in last
week's BAND NOTES-how did
you expect anyone to associate the
"41'ers" with the gold rush? Be a
good fellow, and I won't say any-
thing to ye editor, Pfc. Jess Zim-
The past week has swelled our
ranks with the addition of three
new members to the band: Pfc.
Ralph Sudjian, of Somerville,
Mass.; Pvt. Michael J. Galdino,
Sr., of Harrisburg,' Pa., and Pvt.
Joseph V. Owings, of New York
Pfc. Sudjian is holding down

We have been looking forward
to Pvt. Galdino's transfer to our
organization, for several months;
his old pals of the Signal Head-
quarters will miss his tenor sax
jam sessions in their Day Room.
Pvt. Owings comes to our or-
ganization with a wealth of musi-
cal training and background. He
taught music at the Academy of
Allied Arts, and at the Manhat-
tan Conservatory of Music, as well
as his own studios in New York
City, and has had several musical
compositions published. Pvt. Ow-
ings is playing solo clarinet, along
with Cpl. Luukkonen, in our band.
The Tuesday evening concerts
at the boxing arena appear to be
a regular weekly feature. How did
you like S. Sgt. Eaton's job as
master of ceremonies during this
week's program? Maybe we can
get him to do the next act in
blackface (if the "dear public"
clamors for it).

318th SIGNAL WING
."T IP S"
By PVT. E. C. KENNEDY
Some of the men of the 318th
had their first taste of firing on
the range the other day, and for
many it was their first time at
firing the sub-machine gun. A
few good scores were made, espe-
cially'with the machine gun. The
lieutenants gave us a smart dem-
onstration in firing the "Tommy"
gun by riddling the "Bull's Eye."
Men learned more about rifle
marksmanship as each man placed
his target, took up the comfort-
able G.I. firing positions, then
nervously squeezed his shot. Men
marked their own score, but the
firing was not for record.
Some of the boys attended the
Navy Day observance at the Mu-
nicipal Auditorium, T u e s d a y.

tional salute of the fighting fnen

-DREW FIELD ECHOES
By CPL. JAMES C. GRAY
Here's that man again! Say,
fellows, did I not tell you last
week that pay day made a great
difference in the soldier's life ....
Or did I? Well, it does .... Do you
know any other day that will have
any greater effect on the "sick
call?" It was an event for the 59th
and the 911th .... Not one per-
son-from either organization -
was on "sick call" Saturday. Even
the medical officer was astounded.
What miracles this money can
perform. Kinda worked in
your favor, eh, Cpl. Vincent Tut-
son? (He's the first aid man, fel-
lows-the person you wake up
"all through the night.")
Pvt. Henry Fenderson goes to
town dirty and stays; Pfc. Jack
Fearington goes to town clean and
stays. What's the difference,
Fellows? You tell me! I want to,
ask Pvt. Fenderson who swings
the awful fist that makes the aw-
ful g-a-s-h on the nose, but I'll
wait until another day.
I can't understand why the fel-
lows wisecracked Cpl. Emery Car-
riere Monday morning inci-
dentally, that was the day after
Sunday night. They tell me he
double-timed away from a certain
young lady up seeing a certain
corporal. Yea, both were from the
same camp-I mean the soldiers.
They have no WAACs out here.
At least, I'm not aware of
them.... You know, a little dou-
ble-timing wouldn't hurt the per-
sonnel in the office, but not 'with
such "stress" behind it as was put
behind the good "corporal's."
Pvt. Ernest Ware, how did you
lose all of that money? Quite a
large sum, wasn't it? There are
many reported reasons as to its
disappearance. If it's what I think
it is, we'll get in touch 'with Mr.
Leon Henderson on the "ceiling
of prices." If it isn't that, we'll
call the FBI.
One thing about Sgt. Adams, he
has the entire Army behind him.
Nevertheless, it costs like h-- to
go out to Culvert's place and
back, doesn't it, Sarge? Of course,
the efforts you exerted under
"such-was-the-load carried, along
with the telephoning, the running
up and down the stairs at the
M.P. station-and the running of
your mouth got the refund from
the healthy cab fare paid to the
would-be-rich cab driver. It was
not the money that mattered; it
was the principle of the incident,
wasn't it, Sarge? Two dollars and
forty cents is a mere bit of change
for the Pers. Sgt.
Pvt. Oscar Blue, are you trying
to be a private for the duration?
Tables are hard things. Why not
try a nice soft bed for the sleep-
Now, fellows, here is a bit of
philosophy-take it or leave it.
Here it goes. The C.O. is one of
the finest soldiers you have ever
come in contact with. Therefore,
he wants his organization to be'
the finest, or one of the finest sol-
diering outfits. That means every-
body must be a soldier-and I do
mean "soldier." To do wrong takes
very little effort, but it encour-
ages hardships for you and your
buddies. To do right-takes much
effort, but encourages the kind of
reward that 3you and the folks at
home would be proud of. Which
would you rather have on record?
"Will power"-the power to con-
trol yourself-has a great deal to
do with your actions. It takes a
lot of control to hold yourself to-
gether under certain circum-
stances if you are accustomed to
laxity in "will power." And it
takes a lot of thought to produce
the control needed to hold your-
self in check. Don't be lazy-put
forth some effort-THINK!
'Pvt. Eddie Lizzmore, when
you're trying to take a girl away
from Cpl. Elzie Howard, you've
got to use a better method than
the: one you did use.-He'll' ou't-
drink you every time -and I
don't mean water-"Give Me One
Dozen Roses-- ,"
We are glad to have attached to
our official staff Lt. H. C. Don-
eghay. I know the fellows will
like him, too.

tended the UTO school completed

Our "Sidewalk Superintend-

do that excellent remodeling job.

Joe Hresko and Earl Whobrey
finished a workout at the YMCA
one evening when some young
wenches took them to a Hallow-

until Earl had to perform the love
scene from Romeo and Juliet.
Was it torture! That's nothing-
Joe had to imitate dogs barking.
Poor Ray Joffrion. Ray spent
the better part of twd hours pre-
paring' a detailed report for Maj.
Strecker. He laid it among some
papers to be destroyed. While he
was doing some other work he
tore up his unwanted papers. You
guessed it, he inadvertently tore
up the report. Tough.
Alex "Crackerjack" Kaspraszak
and Zoltan "Horizontal" Lucas
(how did they get such good nick-
names?) made the acquaintance
of a very nice young thing the
other evening. Since three's a

see who would spend the time

A discussion was going on be-
tween Ruth Belcastro, Dick Wahl,

with his, "All I'm interested in is
getting home to see my dog."

Here's the sleep talkers' list (in-
complete): Buckner, Whitley, Kol-
lar, Gowan, LaCount, Gladue,
Guidry, Emerick, Perry and
Lou Perry one night decided to
walk in his sleep. His walk was
interrupted when he tripped over
some footlockers. Muttered Lou,
squaring off with his fists, "Gang-
ing up on me, eh?" Stan Rubin is
another sleepwalker. He was dis-
covered hugging and squeezing
the post by his bed the other eve-
ning about midnight. When he
was fully awakened he claimed
he dreamt that he was home with
his lady friend.

Staff Sgt. Louis H. Arnold, of
Stigler, Okla., got a pass from
Fort Devens and headed for Bos-
ton on a holiday. Fun was had at
all hodus until Sgt. Arnold decid-
ed to give up and go home with-
out bothering to get a hotel room.
He could sleep when he got back
to camp, Arnold reasoned.
But it didn't work out that way.
When the sergeant felt the west-
bound train conductor's hand on
his shoulder, he squinted out the
window to find himself being
hauled into Troy, N. Y. So he got
off and waited for another train,
Then it was the stationmaster's
hand on his shoulder that awak-
ened Sgt. Arnold. After that, Ar-
nold walked around until a 'train
arrived. Better luck attended this
effort. Arnold awoke all by him-
self, this time, only half way be-
tween the station at Ayer, Mass.,
which has a bus to Fort Devens,
and Boston again.
So Arnold got a cab. When the
driver work him up, back at
camp, it was four in the morning
and the sergeant had been travel-
ing thirteen hours. He couldn't
sleep the rest of the night, he says,
"for worrying about the fare."
Or could 13 hours be enough
sleep even for Sgt. Arnold?
Two shots rang out.
"Oh, just the captain. He al-
ways takes a couple of shots be-
fore turning in."
"Waiter, there's a fly in my ice

Something tells me that when
they get back, we won't be where
