from other Air Bases in Florida,
in the final selection of "MISS
AIR FORCE." This will be done
just prior to the Tampa premiere
of Warner Brothers' "Air Force,"

over all the events in connection
with the premiere, and will get
notional publicity. Plant Park, in

program which will include the
final selection of Miss Air Force,
and a concert by the Drew Field
Band. A veteran of the battle of
Bataan will give an eye-witness
,account of the fighting there. An-
other outstanding event of the day


will be a floral display by mem-
bers of the Tampa Federation of
Garden Clubs, and the selection
of a flower to be known through-
out the United States as the
"Mary Ann," the name of the Fly-
ing Fortress which is the heroine
of the picture, "Air Force."

title of Miss Drew Field are
Madge Glenn, Mary Ann Place,
and Louisa Amaker -from the 26th

Dorothy Cleveland from the
Bachelor Officers' Billeting Of-
fice; Dorothy Geiselman of the
Service Club; Martha Blackston,

The liberal response of the
Drew Field personnel as in the
recent War Chest Fund drive, is
a source of gratification to Drew

Melvin B. Asp, and the War Chest
Fund committee, composed of
.Major Rex. W. LeFevre, Capt.
Harry M. Doster, and Lt. James
Brown.

Words of Wisdom
For Soldiers Who
Always Bellyache

So some of you don't like Flor-
ida, or Drew Field, eh? Why
not? Are you receiving harsh
treatment? Are the officers tyr-
ants? Can't you go into town at
the exact moment you so desire?
Are you working too hard?
Listen, soldier, I've been at this
field over a year and a half, and
I believe that there are places
much worse where a soldier can
be stationed.
Have you thought about the
soldiers, some of your own bud-
dies, who have been sent to
Guadalcanal? They CAN'T go to
town, they CAN'T take a day off,
they CAN'T take it easy work-
ing!
And your fellow soldiers in
North Africa-do you think they
are having a good time of it? If
you do, think again, and you'll
change your mind.
You men who complain because
you're "stuck" here at Drew Field,
instructing, or doing other neces-
sary work. Remember, if it were
not for the instructors and ad-
ministrative men on THIS side of
the ocean, we wouldn't be able
to send men across to beat back
the enemy. In order to fight, men
must know how. And that's why
you are here. The men can't be
sent across to fight unless there
is someone who knows how to
arrange for it. Administrative
men may sit at a desk, and in-
structors may stand in a class-
room all day, but their job is
just as important as the soldier
at the front.

FROM THE SPECIAL SERVICES OFFICE

Seen and Heard at
Recreation Bldg. No. 1


On Monday Evening, in Recrea-
tion Building Number One, Lt.
George Kluge presented not only
an entertaining and instructive
program of "The Right Answer
or Else," but also a vivid and
moving dramatic sketch, by Al-
fred Panetz, showing the fine
work of The Red Cross all over
the world, even to making it pos-
sible for parents to communicate
with their sons who are prisoners
of war.
,.4n Tuesday Evening, under the
h msorship of the Defense Recre-
-'d n Committee, Floyd Winters
presented a variety show that the
men enjoyed tremendously.
Patients View "H from D"
On Wednesday Evening, Lt.
Robert Earle took "Hullabaloo
from Drew" to the hospital's
nicely equipped Recreation Room.
The patients did not show sick-
ness in their response.
That evening, at Recreation
Building Number One, there was
a showing of Richard Barthelemes
in "Fighting Blood." Audiences
find old-fashioned films such as
this, a diversion and relief.
On Thursday Evening, there
was a concert and broadcast by
The Sixty-Ninth Army Air Force
Band. Their playing was as fine
as always. Lt. George Kluge fol-
lowed with a broadcast of "Rookie
Roy's Scrap Book." The script was
cleverly written and the actors
did it justice.
On Friday Evening, Danny
Sheehan brought to the field an-
other of his shows. This time, as
always, it was. entertaining.
Also Friday evening, Lt. George.
Kluge broadcast over Station
WFLA a dramatic sketch further
acquainting soldier and civilian
audiences with the fine activities
of The American Red Cross.

THE GUEST HOUSE


The guest house was built to
provide a place where enlisted
men's immediate families, rela-
tives, and close friends can stay
when they are desirous of visiting
the field. The price of a room is
seventy-five cents per night. A
guest is not normally allowed to
stay for more than three days
unless the soldier to whom the
guest may be attached is in the
hospital; then, of course, hte hos-
tess, Miss Leland, will give the
guest an extension of time.
The guest house contains nine
bedrooms, all of which are furn-
ished with comfortable army cots
and with bedroom necessities in
excellent taste. There is a lounge
in the front part of the house.
iSoldiers can visit there with
guests until eleven at night. After
that, the lounge is closed. Guests
staying out after half past eleven
I" Ild notify Miss Leland before
so that it will not be neces-
sK to wake her up when they
come in.
Guests can have lunch and din-
ner at the service club. Any serv-
ice man who has dined there
knows what good food Mrs. Mac-
Bath can prepare. Guests may
breakfast at the Officers' Club.
Any enlisted man wishing to
engage a room should contact
Miss Narcissa Leland, hostess of
The 'Service Club and Guest
House. Rooms must be paid for
in advance.

Laff of the Week
NEW YORK (CNS)-A group
of Naval cadets in training at
Columbia University here were
left standing outside one wintry
day while their leader entered a
building to find out exactly where
they should report. While he was
gone a group of small boys began


peppering the officers-to-be with
snowballs. The cadets were taking
it indulgently when the leader re-
turned. Grasping the situation at
a. glance he became a man of ac-
tion. "Left, FACE!" he snapped,
then "Fire at will!" The boys
withdrew in the face of a force
with superior fire power.

The Bloiting Board
.M/Sgt. Waterman, on DS, Wee-
hawken, N. J., says, via collect
Western Union, that his applica-
tion has been accepted and that
he leaves for Fort Monmouth to-
morrow. Will he make it? Tune
in next week and find out.
It's Master Sergeant Vidovidh
now, as we can see from the Neon
that has been flashed around for
the past week.
We await with eagerness the
'day when our Medics will start
to use and apply Calamine Lo-
tion. Why, it may even put them
"On the Ball"!
Sgt. Kneipp took the article
that appeared in last week's
Echoes home to his wife. It said
he got married because he didn't
like freedom. And besides, says
Kneipp, my "battleaxe" is not a
ball-and-,chain.
To date, this battalion has dis-
charged about, or at least, four
or five men so that they might
work in defense industries. Good
luck to them, and to any others
that might leave us in the near
future.
Sgt; Shoop came home sober the
other night. Sgt. Shoop, you know,
is a metal-salvage enthusiast. He
even gave his watch, which is
about 99 and 44/100 per cent tin.
It never kept time, anyway.
The remarks made in this col-


your light on and start eating some-
thing.
All the boys will bless you, and a
few might even rdck you to sleep, but
after all you can always get your eye
patched up, and this will help you
fall asleep much faster after your
buddy drops one or two or maybe
three good pokes on your jaw. Now
he does this for your own good, be-
cause many a guy that can't fall
asleep ought to be thankful when he
gets rocked to sleep.
3. Always brag what a killer you
are with the girls, and in this way
even though you're modest and only
wish to .talk for about four hours or
more about your little young Georgia
Peach (about forty-three years old or
more), the boys will all be glad to
listen to your tale even though half
of them don't believe you and the
other half figure you're well overdue
for section eight (the nut house to you
new boys-who have just entered the
Fighting 314th).
4. Never, under any circumstances,
volunteer for any special duty. As you
see, if you wait long enough something
is bound to turn up, and if you're
really stuck with a detail, then you
.can always rely on good old "sick
call," to straighten you out.
5. This is the last and most im-
portant of all. If a fellow Barracks
mate is a "right guy" maybe on the
ball and a "square shooter," you should
be proud of yourself for taking ad-
vantage of this lad, even though you
are wrong and he isn't being fooled by
you. But you see, perhaps you are just
too stupid to see through the whole
thing and you're the fool and not he.

There is a new thrill coming

Wing Activities
By SGT. LOU STEIN
The scope of activities of the
22d Bombardment Training Wing
increases daily.
1st Lt. William E. Garland has
been appointed Commanding Of-
ficer of the Headquarters Detach-
ment of the Wing, Acting First
Sergeant is Sgt. Howard B. Balch,
46 year old -veteran of thirteen
months of active service with the
Navy in the World War 1, and
erstwhile, Detroit branch manager
of a Minneapolis flour mill.
The story is told around this
office about the clerk who for 9
hours a day, 6 days a week, did
nothing but type correspondence:
letters, indorsements. and memo-
randums. The other night this
young fellow sat down to. write
his dad a note. Pounding out his
message, the soldier told pater
how much his typing had im-
proved as a result of his work in
the office. "I'm hitting 70 words
a minute now, Pop, and there's,
no. telling how high 'll go."
Closing with much love, he added
from force of habit, "By order of
Colonel VANCE."

Drew Fighters

Top Army Show

With Four Wins

Last Monday night, at the
Tampa Municipal Auditorium.
Drew Field's boxers upset the
applecart by winning four, losing
one and getting a draw in the
bouts i: which they participated.
The outstanding fight of the
evening was when Pvt. Mike
"Popeye" Holland, former light-
heavyv'eight champion of the Pa-
cific fleet, scored a second-round
KO o" Sgt. Joe Kaballo, of Mac-
Dill. "Popeye," who should have
retired from ring activities long
ago because of old age (38) showed
the boys a few tricks of his owr.
by ou:righting and outboxing his
younger opponent.
Othe- Drew winners were Pvt.
Paul Gastelum over Sgt. Neil Ab-
ernathy of Third Air Force by
KO; Pfc. Robert Bowles, who de-
cisioned Cpl. Larry Stoelker of
Third Air Force; and Cpl. Johnny
Sikes decisioned Cpl. Jason Ogil-
vie of Third Air Force.
Cpl.. Joe Balsamo, of Drew,
earned a draw with Sgt. Pat Pan-
gallo of 21st Bomb Gp., MacDill.
The only Drew loss was that of
Pvt. Milton Donals, .stopped by
S/Sgt. Pat Lucas, 21st Bomb Gp.
The 21st Bomb Gp. took three
bobts. while MacDill and Third
Air Force didn't break into the
win col-mn all evening.
The fight card was a crowd
pleaser from start to finish, and
future Army bouts are expected
to be held. The proceeds of these
bouts are to furnish athletic
equipment for the Army athletic
fields here.

Drew With Six
Wins Still Leads
Tampa League

Monday night, Drew Field con-
tinued to march on its way to-
ward an undefeated champion-
ship by trouncing Florida Beer to
the tune of 41-26. Drew, unde-
feated in the first half, has now
won six of the scheduled games
in the second half with no. losses.
The first quarter ended with
Drew trailing, 4-7, but in the sec-
ond quarter, the boys got warmed
up and with Bunnell setting the
pace, scored 13 points to lead at
half time, 17-10. The third quar-
ter was an even game, both teams
scoring six points each, to end the
quarter with a 23-16 score. Then
with a flourish, the Drew Inter-
ceptors, with Fowler running
Wild, scored 18 points to set the
game on ice. The final score: Drew
Field, 41; Florida Beer. 26.
The high scorer of the evening
was Fowler, who with, nine field
goals and one free throw, gar-
nered 19 points, with Horton, the
second high scorer of the evening
with 12 points.
