Drew field Units
In the first wartime observ-
ance of Armistice Day, Drew Field
soldiers joined units from neigh-
boring camps and marched
through the streets of Tampa and
Sarasota. Although there was no
cheering among the thousands
who: thronged the streets to view
the growing strength of America,
a pattering of hands greeted the
passing of troop units.
Led by the MacDill Band, the
parade sung into Tampa, march-
ing with precision. The men of
the Drew Field Signal Corps units
drew vociferous applause as they
passed before the reviewing stand
in Plant Park.
At Sarasota, Drew Field was.
represented by the 69th AAF
Band and' the 59th Aviation
Squadron, colored troops from
Camp DeSoto. White troops from
the Sarasota Air Base participated
in the Sarasota parade.

Ne ar Drew Field
Contrary to reports that West
Columbus Drive had been closed
by the Army, Capt. Guy Potter,
provost marshal at Drew Field,
revealed that it is open to through
traffic to Davis Causeway.
Capt. Potter said that a tempo-
rary sign had been put up, warn-
ing persons without official busi-
ness not to loiter along the road
by the field or stop, but that
through traffic was going along
"We don't blame Tampans for
wanting to look at the planes on
the field from the road," he stat-
ed, "but we can't have loitering
or stopping along the road by the
field. If one car stops it won't be
long before 30 or 40 will be
parked along the field.
"To begin with, it's dangerous
-' the planes are taking off or
ending across the road, and then,
also, there are certain regulations
about that sort of thing and we
must caution the public."

The Signal Headquarters Com-

after a six-week stay in Hills-

arrived back Monday, Nov. 2,
after an all-day hike.
During their stay among the
pine trees the company had their
working hours, and also plenty of
swimming, fishing and rowing
after duty hours were over. Foot-
ball games, volley ball and stren-
uous exercises were in store dur-
ing the calisthenics hour.
All sections were intact and,
while there, instructed another
company in the principles of A.

the company claim the record for
putting up a P.I.C. unit. The time
was a good bit under the time set
by another outfit which formerly
claimed the record.
Shelter halves were pitched as
the company simulated an actual
bivouac, and gas attacks came at
different times to keep the boys
constantly on the alert. A guard
was maintained twenty-four hours

Laff of The Week
While taking his daily walk,
the Commanding Officer of the
Post observed a couple seated on
a bench. The soldier and his girl
companion were so engrossed in
each other's company, that they
did not notice the C.O's approach.
Finally, with him standing beside
them, the girl looked up, startled,
while her companion was too
dumbfounded to move.
"Lady, is your boy-friend a sol-
dier?" asked the C.O.
"No, sir," came the answer-

THE THREE LITTLE RATS
Here is a new version
Of three little rats,
Hitler, Musso and Tojo,
Rodents in high hats.
Their stealthy attack
On a world at rest
Was the super blunder
Of one rodent pest.
Another rat joined,
And then a third pest,
And three little rats
Were all in one nest.
Hitler called great Musso,
"Come, come, my dear!"
But bald Musso was left
Far back in the rear.
Then Tojo decided to
Come to the front,
And cover poor Musso,
His people's affront.
Their 'days are counted,
They never shall win;
We have them running
For cover and more vim.
The United Nations
Are now on the prowl,
To hound these rats
And their ways so foul.
The story will finish.
The end will be swell,
When these little rats
Find themselves in' H-- L

Army Emergency Relief
The principal object of the A.
E. R. is to collect and .disburse
funds for the purpose of .meeting
emergencies and special cases
arising from exigencies due to the
war and which require prompt
The nature of the emergency
cases with which the A.E.R. is
primarily concerned are those
arising among dependents of ca-
sualties between the time when
allotment of pay is discontinued
and insurance is received; of cases
where pay is expected but not
received; of cases arising from
hardships caused dependents by
the hidden transfer or movement
of t:-- soldier from his camp or
station; and other temporary
emergency financial distress
which arises from causes incident
to military service.
Assistance from the A.E.R. may
be in the form of a loan or in
justifiable cases, by outright
grant. In some cases it will take
the form of relief in kind. Loans
made by A.E.R. are considered to
be moral obligations of the bor-
rowers and no interest is charged.
"Relief in Kind" may be in the
form of medical or surgical care,
hositaliZaipn, the furnishing of
vital necessities such as fuel, food,
clothing, etc., or of assistance in
securing allotments of pay, ar-
rears in pay, death gratuties, pen-
sions, and insurance.
If your families are in need tell
them to go to the nearest Army

DRIEW FIELD ECHOES
November 13, 1942
THE ITALIAN CLUB (L'Unione Italiana) was established on April
4th, 1894 under the name of L'Unione, Societa Italiana di Mutuo Soccorso
(Union Society of Mutual Help).
It was organized by a group of fifty families with the purpose of
receiving mutual benefits through the payment of a small monthly fee,
the members receiving medical assistance and an allowance of seven dollars
a week as sick benefits for medicines and hospitalization in case of illness
and inability to work. This organization was formed due to the need of
cooperation brought about by circumstances produced by difference in
language, in cussoms and other causes among the then few members of
the Italian colony in Tampa. In this manner they were assured of being
taken care of in case of need and they evaded the danger of perhaps be-'
coming public charges when out of employment. The advantages of this
organization were soon apparent not only for its members but also for
the community at large. ffiffl( _
As the City grew and prospered and the Colony increased, the Society
increased proportionately in membership and it extended its scope and
-ctivities. Besides the medical benefits there were sablished sections in
te Society dedicated to social, civic and educational matters. The medical
division was improved and extended branchng out into all the necessary
aspects of that work, adopting the most modern and improved methods
and supplying the members with all the facilities necessary not only for
attention in their illness and cure, but also for the prevention of diseases:
and the safeguard of their health.
Social affairs were organized, constant intercourse with other clubs
and institutions were established, schools were opened both for children
and adults in which not only was given edu-
cation in the regular school courses for the
children but also, in the case of adults, night .
classes were established for the learning of the
language and of the principles of democracy \
and citizenship contained in the precepts of
the Constitution of the United States, thereby
encouraging them to acquire American citizen-
Later the name of the Society was changed
to L'Unione Italiana. The membership in-
creased from the few that organized it to 3,450
members which if has today. These members
are men, women and children. Of course, it can
safely be stated that the great majority are
workers, the income of which is not over eight
hundred dollars a year, and ninety-five percent
of them are American citizens, the majority
native born. -.
For a small monthly payment the members :
receive the following services and benefits: .
medical assistance, medicines, hospitalization, f,
X-Ray service, bacteriology service, laboratory ...
service, electro-thermic treatments, dntal atten-. \
lion and surgery, and in case of death, funeral. \ <
and burial services in the magnificent and up- .. ..
to-date cemetery that the Society owns, with- ," '.
out cost to the family. The Hospialization that
the Society pays for its members that need it
is at a cost of no less than four dollars a day per person, apart from the
surgery costs which include operations with all their incidentals and ac-
cessories. This surgery service could not be obtained otherwise by some
of the members on account of the cost of operating and also that of hospi-
talization for lack of the necessary funds for their payment.
The members also receive social benefits, recreation advantages, edu-
cation and library srvic. They have ample halls for meeting and social
affairs and amusements and club cafes for their pastime and card-parties.
The Library of the Society has in conjunction with it a branch of the
Tampa Public Library which is opened to the general public.
Relatives to the schools it is well to mention that the Society has con-
venient locations in its buildings, (with all necessary accessories at its own
expense) for the Educational Division of the Works Project Administration.
This is an Adult Education School of the W.P.A. and is attended at night
by a large number of persons, some of a very advanced age, who are
learning English, the Constitution, Democracy and Citizenship. This
school is a center of preparation for those that are to apply or have applied
for citizenship of.the United States, and is attended not only by members
but by many who are not members of the Society.
If any member, due to lack of work, cannot pay the dues of the Society,
the Society carries him or her ninety days without payment, giving them
the medical care and medical care and medicines that may be required
and other necessary benefits. In case of longer unemployment and inability
to pay, special committees are established to raise extra funds for the
payment of the dues of those that cannot pay them in order that they can
continue to enjoy the advantages of membership. These funds are raised
by means of collections among the members, entertainments, picnics,
L'Unione has two very handsome buildings with all modern appliances
and improvements which are a real credit and ornament to the city. The
principal building or headquarters of the Society is located at 1725-31 E.
Broadway, and the other at the corner of Howard and Spruce Streets.
These buildings represent an investment of over one hundred and forty
thousand dollars. The Cemetery and other assets of the Society can be
estimated at a value of over twenty thousand dollars.
The Society has in the lower floors of the two buildings well equipped
and modern theatres the rental and income of which, together with the
proceeds of the social club cafes, are dedicated to cover the difference
between the expenses of all departments and the total dues collectd from
the members which are not large enough to cover all the expenses that
are required to supply all the benefits and services enjoyed by the members.
The Society is administered by a President, Vice-President, Treasurer,
Secretary and a Board of Directors of thirty members, who are elected
yearly by a general election of the whole membership called for the pur-
p se in January. None of the officers or the
members of the Board receive pay or emolu-
,s ment for their services, with the exception of
,7. the Secretary who acts as administrator of the
., '. '.' Society and its buildings and must dedicate all
Shis time to its activities and interests.
S / The Society has a splendid staff of physi-
S' cians and dentists who recognizing the neces-
S. sity and advantages of these institutions to the
S community, serve loyally and with enthusiasm
"^ ';. and are ready at all times to answer the call
of those in need. They dedicate special hours
for consultation in the clinics of the Society
S and pay constant visits to sick members at their
.homes. Their work and assistance and their
sincere cooperation has made it possible to
establish and build up this institution which

'' r t. themselves and to the community in general.
'-. -The Italian Club of Tampa has for the past
;': twenty years fought consistently against fas-
cism and its agents who have tried, time and
S again, to infiltrate the Mussolini philosophy
among the democracy loving Americans of our
colony. To date, and since the advent of fas-
S''cism in Italy, no official representative of the
Italian Government has been allowed to put
foot in our Club building. Today, with America at war, we are more
determined than ever to see that Fascism is completely crushed.
Since Pearl Harbor the Italian Club has bought $10,000 worth of
United States War Bonds and the members, along with thousands of
Americans of Italian descent, have bought many more thousands through'
the Club and other Bond selling agencies. One hundred thrity-eight mem-
bers of our Club are serving in the armed forces of Uncle Sam, and every'
day many others are enlisting in all branches of the military service as
are many thousands of Americans of Italian descent in the Tampa area.
The statesmanlike decision of President Roosevelt and Attorney Gen-
ral Biddle in lifting the stigma of "Enemy Aliens" to over 600,000 Italians
in the United States has filled the hearts of all with joy and gratitude,
because it removes from them a hateful and unjust blot. Such a gesture
will have a very healthy reprcussion in the hearts of millions all over the
word, and will incite them to fight more and to work harder to achieve
sooner the victory for liberty and democracy.

Inspector, or does he tell that to

We welcome with pride First
Lt. Marshall Waller. our new
company commander. He is a
gentleman from West Point. We
are pi-oud and fortunate in hav-
ing such leadership. Every man
in the company, toughs and all,
are for the "Iron Man."
Many men of the company are
acquiring knowledge in radio
schools at Athens, Atlanta and
Port Arthur, as well as others go-
in to Post school. With techni-
cians of their type, we will soon
be the outstanding company of
the 3rd Fi"hter Command.
It's a sad sight to see "Tommy"
Karns during the baseball games.
It breaks his heart that he is con-
sidered too old to get in there and

a member of the Denver Old-
Timers Baseball Club.

THINK IF YOU DRINK
-(Inspired by a Saturday night
after pay day.)
It costs you most of your monthly
It makes you know not what you
It leaves you bleary-eyed, with
aching head ...
So you only want to stay in bed.
Often it makes you sick as hell,
Sometimes MPs pick you up
where you fell,
At times it causes AWOL ..
What else it does, time alone will
Sure, it's O.K. to take a drink,
But for God's sake, stop and think!
Drink only as much as you can
Not as much as can be sold.
Then you will-be a better man-
To lick Italy, Germany and Japan.

SOME ADVICE -
IT'S ALL YOURS
FOR THE ASKING
There's nothing like following
good advice for a soldier to get
along in the Army. No doubt
thousands of letters reach Drew
Field daily from homes in all
parts of the country which con-
tain plenty of suggestions, some
"good," on military behavior.
One of the best examples, if
interpreted correctly, is this letter
allegedly received by a Drew
Field soldier. And just in case
anyone wants to follow any of
the suggestions contained, it
might be suggested that a sort of
reverse twist would not be amiss.
"I want to make your stay in
the army real pleasant, dear. And
in camp as in civilian life I'm
sure you'll find good manners
essential. If you haven't done so
already, go and get acquainted
with your general. As a private
you should make the first move.
"Be cordial and friendly, dear,
and don't let his rank frighten
vou. After all, he is a man, too;
rod as your commander he has
o look after your welfare. Being
friendly is the least you can do.
"Walk up to him and say, 'Well,
pal, here I am. How's tricks?' If
he appears a bit embarrassed, clap
him on the back and make him
see that you are his friend. That'll
Take him notice you. After that,
he'll take an interest- in your acti-
"I've been reading an army
manuel on courtesy and I must
say that it could stand a few re-
finements. It doesn't give much
chance for the soldier to express
himself and use his originality.
"I'm sure a colonel must get
awfully bored by getting the'same
sort of salute from every man in
-our uniform. Impress him some-
time with your individuality.
Every now and then salute him
With both hands. See if that does
not get results of some kind.
"'You should be thoughtful, too.
If, by any chance, you should be
called down by an officer, the
next time you meet be careful
not to salute him. He might still
be mad at you and not want to
"Show that you have a mind of
your own. Whenever you are
given an order for which you can
see no reason, demand an expla-
nation for it. It may develop that
there was no good reason for the
Also try to break the monotony
of all this marching you do. It
must bore the officers as well as,
the men. Make little humorous'
comments on various commands.
For example, if the drill sergeant
ays, 'Right face!', point out tb
him that it is your right face but
you can't help it. He will be sure
to mention you to the higherups.
"Follow my advice,' dear and I
am sure all of the officers will
hear about you. Before long you'll
find they're using you as an ex-
ample for the good of the rest
of the men."

fornia Aggie fullback, scored both
touchdowns for the soldiers as he
ripped through the Spartans' line
consistently all afternoon. Drew
scored its first six points late in
the second period, when Pane
shot off tackle for 28 yards and
the score. He converted the extra
point from placement. Drew
scored again in the fourth quar-
ter with Pane going wide around
end and needle-threading his way
down the sidelines for the final
Little U. G. Matherly, 150-
pound tailback, accounted for all
three Tampa touchdowns in the
first half when he raced for 55,
53 and 50 yards for scores.
Tampa scored in the first min-
ute of play, when Matherly took
the ball on his own 45 and raced
off tackle to score the initial
touchdown. Straub's conversion
Late in the first period, Drew
made their first threat when S.
Sgt. Tom Caruso recovered a
Tampa fumble on the 50. Pane
picked up a first down over left
guard. Again Pane tucked the ball
under his arm in a 17-yard jaunt
to his opponents' 16. At this
function Pane took to the air and
flipped a 15-yard pass to right
end Mueller, who went high in
the air to bring the ball down on
the one-yard stripe. Two line
thrusts brought the ball within
inches of the goal, but on third
down Pane fumbled and Gillett
recovered for Tampa. Matherly
ran the ball out of the danger
After a series of plays failed to
gain a first down, Drew kicked
and Matherly returned the ball to
his own 47-yard line where he
was met by a host of Drew tack-
lers. Again Matherly broke loose
and raced 53 yards for the touch-
down. Straub's kick for the extra
point was good.
Drew received the kickoff, but
failed to gain and punted to Tam-
pa's 30. Clarke CcCullough ran it
back to midfield. For the third
time, Matherly took the ball and
raced through left tackle for 50
yards and the score.
The soldiers managed their
touchdown late in the second half
when they took advantage of the
breaks and took the ball on Tam-
pa's 28-yard line. The hard-driv-
ing Pane shook off would-be tack-
lers as he raced 28 yards through
right tackle for the score.
In the second. half a spirited
Drew team took the field and bot-
tled up the opposition and man-
aged a touchdown of their own.
Early in the fourth quarter Danny
Lennon intercepted Matherly's
pass and was off for a touchdown
but lost balance and tripped on
his 45. Pane's pass, intended for
Caruso, was incomplete. Tampa
was penalized 15 yards for hold-
ing. Failing to make yardage for
a necessary first down, Arm-
strong booted the ball into the
end zone. On the'kick Tampa was
off side and penalized five-yards,
placing the ball on the 25. On the
next play Pane ran wide around
end for 25 yards to score. His
kick was wide. This ended the
scoring for the day.
The two lines played a nice
game, with Pane and Matherly
stealing the show in the backfield.
