PARADE,


uniforms to Be

Worn by Hostesses

S nd Librarians

Tt is quite fashionable for wom-
'n to be in uniform nowadays.
Witb the new library already open
3nd the doors of the Service Club
soon to swing open, it is interest-
ing to-note that Drew Field libra-
-ians and hostesses-together with
1k1 Army hostesses and librarians
in continental United States-will
wear regulation uniforms when
they are available.
It won't be long before we'll be
seeing Miss Narcissa Leland, of
St. Petersburg, junior hostess, and
Miiss Eulah Mae Snider, of Tampa,
librarian, in uniforms of light blue
material with a distinctive insig-
hia on the left coat sleeve. The
uniform is a coat suit, with gored
skirt and slightly fitted jacket,
ind a long overcoat made from
fleece-faced overcoating. The ;n-
Oignia is fan-shaped and com-
posed of nine colors-maroon, or-
ange, red, green, white, dark blue,
yeik:.-, buff and crimson-radiat-
ing from an open center. Each col-
or represents a different branch
bf the Army, and massed in the
insignia signifies that the hostess-
es and librarians work for all
bfa'nches.
', Accessories for the uniform in-
clude a chapeau, modeled along
overseas cap design, a white
blbuse of poplin or broadcloth, a
blue coat-style sweater, neutral
colored hose and shoes of dark
6lue or black leather. Army regu-
lation- suggest that the gloves, of.
a commercial pattern, be of a 1
eolor to correspond with the ox-
f6rd-type 'shoes.
^.The prescribed uniform is to be
Worn by' ll members- of the 'Host-'
esS and Librarian Service at all

3141h FLUNK-UPS
By CPL. LEONARD RUBIN
(In Absence of John O'Gara)
M Sgt. Hatcher, Tampa's big-
gest if not gayest Lothario, is
quite a boy about town these
days. Most patrons of the Jewel
Box feel that he furnishes the
floor show even though he gets
no pay for it.
Many of the fellows in the
314th feel that Pvt. Polsky of
the Classification office talks just
like Charles Boyer. But the im-
portant thing is, do the Tampa
chicks think so?
Sgt. Liner of the Schools office
is just what his name sounds
like, for he dishes out the lines
as fast as the local pulchritude
can take it in.
Your star reporter and corres-
pondent John O'Gara is now a
pfc-hurray now he can join
the sweat box club by sweating
out corporal. The .kid from. Bos-
ton, JO'G, started for the "hoi-e
town with a look of Boston beans
and things to come in his eye.
Cpl. Herman is living oh the
post with his wife-almost, for
early and late his little chickadee
is seen walking with the young
corporal right here at Drew.
S Sgt. Scheffer, the missing
Link (trainer), promises to be
one of the best read men on the
post for he has started a virtual
campaign to read every book in
Tampa's library.
Pfc. De Felice was a simple
lad until caught between that
comedy team of Cook and Snow,
the latter, just promoted to
Sergeant. It will take a lot of
stripes to cover that fat arm of
Snow's, jut as it takes a lot of
hat to cover his-head.


Sgt. Ozie Whitehead walks
around with his head in the
clouds and lives in a different
world. We'd like to know where
it is, for the expression on his
face would indicate that it is a
swell place to. be.
Cpl. Stumpe of the orderly
room is the lad who hates the
mornings not because he has to
get up but because it reminds
him of the morning report of the
314th which some day will be
regarded by historians as the
classic mystery story whose
hc-re and v'whre are they, who
done it and where did they go?
These and hundreds of other
questions will .be found andr may-
be answered. in Stumpe's book.

'564th Signal AW- Btalioni-S'eS.

STABLE GOSSIP
By. SGT. J. B. HARRIS
To get down to business, we
want to know who this MARGY
is! Speaking of fashion, and not
'.shows, who is this fashion plate
S(Godey's) Corporal (Grandmaw)
Branfield is going to dinner with
now,? .Wll, it's Ritenclif's anyway,
isn't it, :Corpbral?
SWe all know why John So-
chacki and everyone else gave our
three new privates such a hearty
<'welcome. Wonder what'they think
.now? What with K.P. one day and
guard the next and latrine duty
the third day.
: Everyone wonders why Pvt.
Felix Reyna gets away with per-
.petual sleep. He's been on night
.guard for three weeks and likes it.
:Pfc. McCord, better known as
the Kansas Plowjockey, tottered
:around after hours the other
'morning. Anyway, he didn't start
braying, and that is some conso-
lation.
'We've never seen anyone enjoy
recuperating as much as Cpl. Mc-
.DrI&I. Of course, there's another
: n-1::.r- it.
Sgis Lewis and Barkeley are
due credit for the chow improve-
ment lately.
Corporal Hetzel is no farmer,
jbut he sure plows through the turf
,often enough.
Pvt. Majewski is a whiz when it
comes to producing tangerines di-
rect from the grove. We think
-he's had previous experience.
Why is Sgt. Mattice such a good
boy now? Yeah, his boss is in
'town. That's the reason for that
-million dollar smile hes been
,sporting lately:
Pfc. Loker, getting city wise and
sending lovely gifts these days.
and where, Sgt. (military
courtesy)Ciegler, did you pick up
that Scotch dialect? And, Sgt.
'Siegler, we, too, think three is a
crowd .... T. 5th Kivisto just
,poured in from furlough saying
he bagged a deer. T. 4th
Freund just in from furlough say-
ing he just bagged a dear. Con-
gratulations, Sergeant.
There is a very interesting
story behind the fact that keeps
Sgt. Krause on his toes at all
times. You see, Sgt. Krause does
not like toadmit it, but he remem-
bers the l7st war. He was ummm
,years old when the German Army
marched through the province of
:Galicia in Austria, and camped
near the large ranch of his par-
ents. His father was captured and
sent to the salt mines of Siberia,
leaving Sgt. Krause and his moth-
er to provide food for the rest of
the family and many of the other
Villagers. So if you've wondered
why Sgt. Krause takes this Army
life seriously and puts forth every
effort to do his best, it's because
he knows what it's like to have
your house looted of everything
of value, and knows what it's like
to have just enough left to make
the trip to America. However, in
-spite of this background, we've
never seen Sgt. Krause when he
didn't have the biggest smile in
the company, and so another bou-
quet to Sgt. Krause.
Did everyone give Sgt. Kester
the razzberries when he so nobly
qualified for the bunch of rag-
weed recently. He was the only
"what you may callit" in the 'com-
pany who was gigged; and, as Lt.
Lowery says, its better to be on
the ball than behind the ball.

SDReWFILD


I Mr

Thanks, fellas, for the fine re-
sponse last Friday evening. You
were a fine audience and by your
reception of our guests of the eve-
ning I know we can count on a
return engagement as well as
many more "Big-Time" produc-
tions.
Richard Himber and his fine
show was the first of what we
hope to be a full schedule at this
field in the future. And I know
I speak for all the soldier talent
who appeared on the radio broad-
cast last week when I say that
every man on that program got
the biggest thrill of his life when
his performance was put on the
air with the famous Himber or-
chestra.... It's a moment every
young artist waits for and few
seldom realize.
To every man connected with
this past productino-piano mov-
ers, the detail of men assigned
to clean up the hangar, the men
who wired the sound speakers to
the overhead beams, and the sol-
dier talent who appeared on-the
broadcast-this reporter wishes to
thank you all for a very- swell
job. A job well done. One that
spoke for itself simply by the
smooth presentation which took
place between 8 o'clock and 10:30.
p. m. Friday last. .
We're going to have quite a job
beating .last week's radio show
this week but you can rest assured
every man concerned will be in
there trying. Join in on this pop-
ular entertainment feature .
Audition on Wednesday evening
and go on the Air on Friday-it's
a- natural for any one who has
talent and wants to entertain
his fellow soldier ...
Here's your radio week in
schedule from:
WFLA, daily 7:05 to 7:25 a.m.
-Drew Field Presents.
WFLA, Tuesday 6:30 to 6:45
p. m.-This is Our Army.
WFLA, Friday 9:00 to 9:30 p. m.
-Drew Field Star Parade.
WTSP, Tuesday, 6:45 to 7:00 p.
m.-Life in Khaki.
WDAE, Thursday 8:35 to 8:50
p.m.-On the Air with the Army.

Millionth Application
For Family Allowance
The Office of Dependency Be-
nefits passed a major milestone
on November 13, 1942, when it re-
ceived-its millionth application
under the Servicemen's 'Depen-
dents -Allowance Act of 1942, the
War Department announced to-
day.
The millionth application was
received from Private First Class
Goodloe Combs, OPO 251, in care
of postmaster, New York, New
York, for the family allowance
for his wife and two children
who reside in Louisville, Kentuc-
ky. Immediate authorization for
payment was made.


THE YANKS ARE
ON THE MARCH
Yes, the Yanks are on the
march. They're storming North
Africa and soon will be storming
Europe.
But this is no time to rest on
our oars.
We know that a new front has
been opened, that the NIazis are
worried, worried plenty. We know
*that getting control of NortIl
Africa wasn't too tough. But this
war isn't over. Not by a long
shot. It's just beginning-to go
in our favor.
There'll be months of blood and
sweat. There'll be rain and cold.
There'll be mud and slush. This
is just the beginning. We're on
the march but we're not going
to end it tomorrow.
Why? The Germans didn't put
on their uniforms yesterday.
They're not babes in the woods
gaping open-mouthed at our sur-
prise invasion. No, they're simply
impressed at our sudden move.
But they're not licked, not by a
long. shot..
We're in it for sure, soldier.
Yes, we're on the march. But
we're on the march to a lot of
fighting, a lot of hell. No, we're
not over-cautious. We just say-
don't get cocky and rest on your
oars. There's a long ride ahead
of us, plenty of work to do, and
we've just begun.

Soldiers Hospitably
Treated By USO
W while Traveling
Sgt. Edward M. Stephan, on a-
recent furlough to Toledo, Ohio,
was a passenger on the New
York Central railroad line. Be-
tween Cincinnati and Toledo, at
an out-of-the-way place, the
train stopped and all soldiers and
sailors were told to get off the
train, officers and enlisted men
included.
They were led to a USO can-
teen and were given all they
could eat. The women in charge
were highly insulted if the men
didn't take along a bag of food
that they had prepared for them.
This incident was not unusual,
the sergeant reported. Not only
on this train, but all trains of
that line stop over so that the
service men can be treated.

'What are you wearing that

"Oh, that's my class pin. I

AT LAST!
The two dogfaces were walking
down-the street and met a major.
Instead of saluting, .one of the
lads hauled off and let the major
have it on the chin. It was a tar-
rific' wallop.
The major staggered to his feet
and just as he straightened up the
other doggie let go. Whammo!
Down went the major again.
Of course, the two mischievous
youngsters were shown the way
to the stockade. Then they were
brought before the major.
"Why did you hit me?" the ma-
jor asked.
"Well," said the first soldier,
"when you passed me you
stepped on my bunion. I saw red.
I forgot who you were. I swatted
you."

he's expecting just in time for
Xmas), and the versatile "Sudjy".1

horners (how do you like that
corny jive?)
Pvt. David Kuttner, well known,
around New York City for his
association with several ina me!
bands, and who fronted his own
band (under the name of "Don
Davis") before finding himself in
khaki, also joined us from Daniel

they both celebrate the same r1at3 l

Some of our Banismen have,

his trumpet; Pvt. Galdino, tenor
saxman; and Ffc. Sam Schiavone,
with his G.I. Baritone Saxophone
A regular feature of these shows
is a very fine comedian, Pvt.

to work up a sweat if it will make'
the boys laugh-and he hasn't"

It's too bad that Sgt. Luukko-

DREVI FTELD ECHOES


Plotting Co. 564th SAW Bn.

DOTS AND DASHES
By SGT. E. S. PERRY
Getting back to the poinsettias,
royal palms and palmettos of
Drew Field means getting back
to the old routine-cleaning up.
piling up, digging up, straighten-
ing up, but never giving up.
Most of the men learned botany
and forestry the hard way, chop-
ping up the million roots of each
pine tree and whacking at pal-
Smettos with machetes. Yes, it was
.a tough job, all right, but when
it's all over there's something to
.look forward to: MOVING.
One moving job everybody is
in favor of is to move that mess
hall a mile closer to our area.
Under the present layout we're
using shoe leather up at three
times the normal rate. It's all
temporary, which is some conso-
lation.
A communique from the Indi-
ana rear states that a girl is fall-
ing fast for Cpl. Dickerson, and
should be taken on his next fur-
lough. According to scouts, the
same situation holds for Cpl.
Lovelace, Sgt. Ludwig, Pvt. M.
Hengle, Pvt. Geiser, and Cpl.
Farnsworth. Xmas bells and wed-
ding bells will ring close togeth-
er. And there are a lot of others
that swing from treg to tree if
that letter doesn't get there on
the dot.
Non-coms cooled off last week
--or rather were cooled off -
twice by the fast privates' foot-
ball team who showed that team
play gets the best results. Basket
ball season has begun according
to Cpl. Talarek, who says we have
a great team that bars no comers.
Plotting team challenges any
team in or around Tampa-just
call and ask for Cpl. Talarek, who
will fix up dates to suit anyone.
Jabs and Hooks: More men
now hear first call and as a re-
sult get blown out earlier. The
Sea Breeze is getting very popu-
lar with a bunch of our men.
Cpl. McIntyre has something
steady besides work: The school
men are back now and if knowl-
edge is power, we sure have it.
Furloughs going along right on
schedule. So's the weather, and
the stoves will soon be in order-
or doesn't the Florida Chamber
of Commerce like to admit it?
Pfc. Seder should write home and
tell them we like soft chocolates
best. Mail Clerks Hawkins and
Pupo have both hands full now-
adays. The new men who joined
our company recently are right
on the ball-which fact was no-
ticed at once. Welcome. Pfc. Ru-
pert gets letters in French and
Latin that would take three pro-
fessors to translate. But Pvt.
Davis writes the longest letters
(they look like books). Oh-oh,
here comes pay day. Amen!

"SIGNALS"
By CPL. LARRY RALSTON
Well, here it is, time to get
down to brass tacks, and get this
week's column on. its way to
press. The boys are doing their
house cleaning a little early for
spring, but they do want a clean
place to live, and they want it
before winter sets in. Scrubbing
floors, ceilings, sidewalks, polic-
ing up on all their equipment, a
little repairing of this and that,
washing windows and screens are
in store.
Cap. Parrish. our commanding
officer, has returned from his
leave. Reports have it that he
had a very good time. ("'Course
-who don't have a good time on
leave or furlough?")
Sgt. Polk was the lad who took
fourth place in the obstacle
course meet, held at Benjamin
Field last week. His time was
1:105 over a course he had never
seen. The winning time .was 1:75
so the first four places were real
close.
Sgt. Holsomeback reports the-
basketball team has been work-
ing out each afternoon and a lot
of interest is being shown. The
expectations are good for a suc-
cessful season.

WELL, MEN, this is Thanksgiving
week, and believe me, we all have
something to be thankful for. To give
'em to you briefly, or in one capsule:
'(1) We are thankful because our men
and buddies all over the world are
giving those Nazis and 'Japs hll-with
an extra dose of that thing commonly
known as hot lead; (2) because we are
within a few thousand miles of our
loved ones, who know we are still in
God's country; (3) and -we must be
thankful, too, that all our men in
military service can preach to the
world: "We had turkey on Thanksgiv-
ing Day"-something soldiers under
Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito cannot
say. Yes, men, think and be thankful,
because I know a lot of the boys on
the home front who had to do without
turkey-and, again, think a little hard-
er about those homeless, orphans and
underprivileged kids who had nothing
to eat on Thanksgiving Day, but who,
like good Americans, can still hold
their tiny chins up and display their
cheerfulness as they "kill time" press-
ing their red noses against the 'toy
windows at Maas' and 'Sears'.
Most interesting sight of the week:
Watching William H. Day, formerly
with Esquire magazine, and now at
Drew, drawing a pencil sketch of a
love-sick soldier as he looks and looks
and looks- at the cashier at the Jewel
Box. Talking about the Jewel- Box,
don't miss the floor show this week-
Long Nose (Durante) King will lay
you down. He's nertz,.or is just that
good. He and his partner. Kitty, put
on one of the best shows of the season.
Despite the war, the clowns-
as big as ever and full of new
gags-will be here Monday with
the Ringling Brothers Barnum
and Bailey circus. An array of
wild animals, icnluding Gargan-
tua, 'the Geat, and Toto, his Cu-
ban 'bride of a few months, are
also included in the greatest show
on earth. It's a "Must." Don't
miss it!
Ohio and Iowa were well represent-
ed at the Hi-Hat Club this week-end.
Pvt. R. H. Holis. an old friend of mine
and former keeper o a Cleveland bar;
Pvt. Glenn Miller, Pvt. K. J. Behan,
Pvt. E. F. McGreal, who was very
lonesome because his bride of six
months is far, far away. and Pvt. Ar-
thur Maugle, who was all eyes for the
alllgal band, threw a party that lasted
until-the curfew, of course.
Does anyone know if Lt. George
O'Lerry., Chicago, is satisfied wthil
what the fortune teller at one of our
night spots told him?
DON'T ASK ME-ask Clara Proctor
why all the M.P.s make the rounds at
the Paddock Bar, now that she's back
after a visit home with her sick
mother.... Yes, and who is that tail,
blond, curly-haired lieutenant who
peeks in about midnight? No, no,
that's not all. What's Fred Jiminez
car doing outside the place every
night at closing time? It seems to me
that the owners ought to give him an
interest in the place.

Talking about romance, Charlotte
Barnes isn't doing so bad. It used to
be a sergeant, but now it's small,
bashful lieutenants-one at 6 feet
2, the other 5 feet 2. Which one will
it be, Charlotte. The CHATTERBOX
is a nice place for romance, isn't it,
Charlotte?
C.P.O. Meekers, leader of the Coast
Guard .band here, played to a swell
crowd at Sulphur Springs last week.
'It was so-o-o-o good that the manage-
ment will ask the Navy for permis-
sion to let Meekers repeat his per-
formance. i
THE SARATOGA BAR was the sp t
for a farewell party given Seaman
Bert Watkins, who's shoving off Fri-
day. The hosts were Seamen Tom Na-
deau and Cobby Mathews, of the
Davis D. C. G. Station.
Caught T. Sgt. George D. Landes,
Drew, snapping flashlight pictures of ,
night spots. Said he would give me
a few.
Why does Sgt. C. Harrison, Page
Field, Fort Myers, come to Tampa
Very week-end? Is it to meet one of
the members of the fair sex at the
Seabreeze Restaurant for a midnigiit
snack, or is it a smack, Sarge?
Pvt. Tommy Papudis, Plant Field
M.P., knows that a 'war is going on
and that there's a gasoline rationing,
but he also knows that Santa travels
on a gasless sled. He's expecting a big,
big Xmas gift from Knoxville--his
wife will drop in during the holidays.
.- Somethin' to be thankful for,
Private.
