"They said the 'Gremlins' al-
most got me," explained Major
Robert L. Coffey, aide to Brig.
Gen. A. H. Gilkeson, command-
ing officer, III Fighter Command,
as the cause of his recent mishap.

nosed up, causing Major Coffey
to sustain minor scalp lacerations
and a shaking up.
Born in Chattanooga, Tenn.,
the major's family later moved to
Johnstown. He and Col. Wagner
were boyhood chums there and
attended public school and Penn
State College together. During
their summers they worked in the
local mines. After leaving college,
he was a mining engineer for
three and one-half years. In the
meantime, Wagner had become
an Army flyer and finally in-
duced Major Coffey to follow
He received his basic flying
training at Randolph Field and
graduated from Kelly Field in
June, 1940, as a second lieutenant.
Coffey's first seven months of
service were at Langley Field
with the 36th Pursuit Group.
Then the major was transferred
to Puerto Rico and served there
all of 1941. At the outbreak of
the war he was moved to Panama
and saw duty there until Septem-
ber, 1942. He was promoted to
captain in Panama.
While awaiting transportation
at Miami to join a squadron now
in India, Coffey was transferred
instead of the 305th Fighter
Squadron. On Nov. 28, Coffey was
transferred to the III Fighter
Command as Gen. Gilkeson's aide.
One week ago today he was pro-
moted to major.

Amphibian Widgeon, which will
operate with equal ease on land

gers, but under emergency con-
ditions it can handle even more.
It is equipped with collapsed
"Mae Wests," or life belts which
can be inflated on the spot and
thrown to people in the water.
There also is a compact' rolled,
inflatable life raft, big enough to
support a swimmer indefinitely
in any kind of water, and com-
plete first aid equipment.
The "Quack" can land easily
in the water beside the distressed
pilot, take him into the plane, and
take off for home. The crew can
administer first aid en route, if
needed, and then turn the flier
over to the flight surgeon at the
base for a thorough checkup
when they get there.

Recently promoted to lieuten-
ant colonel, the 28-year-old com-
manding officer of the 53rd Fight-
er Group now stationed at Drew
Field, stared thoughtfully at some
of his flyers climbing into the
cockpits of some P-39s.
"Our fighter group has some
mighty good men in it," he said,
puffing on his pipe. Lt. Col. Don
H. Wilhelm is a collector of pipes.
"It was the first organization of
our nation's armed forces to be
sent out of the country after
Pearl Harbor. For almost a year
we operated in the Canal Zone
and the Republic of Panama.'"
-Not only does Col. Wilhelm ex-
press satisfaction with his com-
mand as a whole, but speaks with
glowing pride of achievements
of individual members of the
group's several squadrons, .some
of whom have wiped out Jap and
German fighters in dogfights.

Col. Wilhelm is a native of Bry-

versity of Dayton (Ohio). At the
age of 21 he joined the Army
Air Corps and spent the better
part of four years at Selfridge
Field, Michigan. Later he was
sent as a member of a flying eche-
lon from Selfridge Field to Dale
Mabry Field, Tallahassee, Florida.
One of the most spectacular
events in Col. Wilhelm's career
was his parachute jump, the first
at Dale Mabry Field, out of an
old P-35 from an altitude of 16,-
000 to 19,000 feet. While at a
height of 25,000 feet, he lost the
tail of the plane he was flying
and he couldn't get -its nose up.
With the tail gone, he plane began
to skid. He lost control of the
ship and had to bail out.
Col. Wilhelm is a member of
the Caterpillar Club. He has par-

Masonry Work on
Drew Band Shell
Most of the masonry work for
the new Drew Field band shell
has been completed under the di-
rection of Captain Chester K.
Delano, Special Services Officer.
The band shell is being financed
entirely by contributions from
the various organizations and
men on the base, and from money
expected to be .raised by the-. all-
soldier show, '1Hullaballoo From
Drew." So far, $4500 has already
gone into the building project,
which will assure completion of
the band shell, a modern broad-
casting booth, and a terrazza
dancing floor in front .of the band
shell. Later, dressing rooms will
be added to ,the band shell build-
ing, and bleachers to seat thou-
sands of soldiers will be built in
an amphitheater in front of the
The stage will be shaped as a
semi-circle, with 30 feet front-
age, and 15 feet deep. It is so de-
signed as to afford the best ac-
coustics possible, to do justice to
the fine music of Drew Field tal-
ent and various big name bands
and shows which will ultimately
use the band shell. The terrazza
dance floor is large, 90 feet by
70 feet, and will give plenty of
room for those who wish to trip
the light fantastic.
Proceeds from "Hullaballoo
From Drew," an all-soldier show,
will make possible the final com-
pletion of the band shell. Re-
hearsals are under the direction
of Lieutenant Charles W. Thorn-

New Basket Ball
In Drew Field's younger days,
sports were on a catch-as-catch-
can basis. But with the advent of
our new gym buildings, sports
and recreation finally have come
into their own. And as an out-
standing example of the initiative
of the boys in the Signal Corps,
three Drew Field basket ball
leagues have been formed.
All teams are from different or-
ganizations in the AWUTC. There
are a total of eight teams in each
league and they meet every Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday in
gyms Number 2 and 3. There is
no admission charge and the
gyms are open to all spectators.
Three basket ball games are
played in each gym each night
and the players are strictly "on
