FORT BENNING PIGSKINNERS WILL INVADE DREW ON SUNDAY
Service Club Offers Many Comforts
Drew's star studded Signal
Corps football team will trot out
on Phillips field Sunday after-
noon to meet the Third Armored
Regiment eleven from Ft. Ben-
ning in a football classic between
the two service teams.
In its first game of the season
several weeks ago, Drew dropped
a close 21 to 13 game to the Uni-
versity of Tampa. Drew missed
several scoring chances that
would have changed the picture
with the collegians.
Under the direction of the Phy-
sical Training Department, Drew
has been working out daily at
Plant Field and have rounded
into fine physical shape for the
game Sunday. Under the watch-

team has reached a fine edge and

Captain Chester K. Delano,
Base Special Service Officer re-
quests the Unit Special Services
Officers and the Unit Command-
ing Officers to make their Special
Services arrangements off the
Base through his office. It has
been brought to his attention that
various officers and enlisted men
have been approaching radio sta-
tions in town, theatre managers,
and recreational organizations for
help with their individual pro-
grams. This has made for a great
deal of confusion and a general
diffusion of effort, all of which
could be avoided by working with
and through the Special Services
For information and sugges-
tions about duties of and sugges-
tions for Special Services acti-
vities in individual outfits, Cap-
tain Delano would like to call
attention to TM 21-205. This is a
complete setup of games, sug-
gested shows, and activities to be
carried on en route to duty
abroad and in the field. For other
suggestions get in touch, with the
Base Special Services Office.
They are so organized that they
can help with all headaches with
games, entertainments and the
like. Give them a ring, or drop in
and see what they have to offer.
The Special Services Office has
encouraged the Unit Special
Services Officers to arrange pro-
grams of games, parties and en-
tertainments for the individual
outfits within the company areas.
Several of the companies and
battalions have held some inter-
esting events within the week.
The 704th Sig. AW. Co. held a
series of Obstacle Course Races,
with prizes for the three leading
contestants. The prizes were sure
welcome since they were tickets
for the home games of the Drew
Field football team. There, was
plenty of excitement and lots of
fun at some of the spills. Inciden-
tally, this same outfit is working
in its area, building a couple of
Volleyball, Courts, a Football
Field for Touch Football, and
they are now busy erecting hori-
zontal bars and digging jumping
pits. Their bowling team is about
ready for action, too.
On the subject of bowling
teams, the Hq. Co. of the 566th.
has something to say on the sub-
ject. They say they're pretty good.
The outfit has been making quite
a few hikes lately, ending with
campfire entertainment. For real
entertainment, there's n o t h i ng
like the open air with a couple
of good songs, a guitar, and a
few jokes. It might be worthwhile
for the other outfits to look into
this form of fun.

and two to go that is for the
year 1942. From what I have seen
and heard around the nite spots,
every one, including his uncle,
has been having a good time.' A
lot of the boys have many things
to be thankful for, too. Some,
probably, have more reasons than
others. For instance, Chauncey
Cromwell of the Tampa Terrace
is very much so because of his
new. singer-also that sweet look-
ing blonde, who appears to have
eyes only for the well known
Lt. R. M. Caid, Drew, has
been nursing sore feet or sim-
ply applying corn salve. He en-
gaged in a rumba dance bare-
footed. Yep, Doris Pocock took
her shoes off to dance with him
at the CHATTERBOX. Lt.
Walter Dzeuba, Lt. W. (Bill)
Steger, Dallas, Tex., and Drew,
and his charming dnacing part-
ner, Martha Rogers, and Mr.
and Mrs. James Austin were
all in Lt. Caid's party. I'm hap-
py to report that all enjoyed
the shoeless affair. ..
The Yacht Club was the scene
of a party given in honor of Col.
R. L. Strickland, MacDill. Capt.
H. A. Wilson and 75 medical of-
ficers attended. Everybody had
a swell time. Thanks to Danny
Brown of the Jewel Box, who
moved his entire floor show to
the luxurious club to entertain
these distinguished medical men.
Pvt. Ed Solomon, Drew field
cartoonist, sometimes spends his
spare moments -drawing pictures
of girls pretty girls. This
week he delighted both a blonde
and a brunette. The blonde,
Sharon Lee Flynn, is seven; the
brunette, her sister, Jeanne, is 11.
The pictures were shipped to
