Cistern Twins Reunited
The "cistern twins"-Pvt. Wim.
Allen Hamilton blue-eyed blond
soldier stationed at a sub-base of
Drew Field, and Mrs. Bettie Jayne
Catron, blue-eyed, blonde, Twin
Falls, Ia., housewife-were reu-
nited last Friday after a separa-
tion of nearly 23 years.
With a conventional "I'm happy
to meet you" and an awkward,
simple handshake, they were in-
troduced in a Bradenton hotel
room by Lt. A. G. Thompson,
Drew Field assistant public rela-
Not since they were nursed to
health in an Omaha hospital near-
ly 23 years ago had they seen
each other. In fact, Hamilton did
not even know he had a sister
until Mrs. Catron's desire to find
her twin led her on a 3,000-mile
odyssey which ended in Braden-
The comely sister arrived in
Tampa with her foster mother,
Mrs. Arch Shurigar, Rockport,
Mo. Army officers, who waited
patiently for three hours until
the arrivel of their train, took
them in a staff car to Bradenton.
"We hope you don't think we're
here? toamake- trouble for you,"
Mrs. Shuriaar said in meeting
Tamilton. "We just had to come.

meeting you for 14 years and this
meeting is the biggest thing in
The shy soldier said he knew
they were "going to get along
First news of his sister upset
Hamilton and he refused to be-
lieve it because until that time
he thought he was the real son
of his foster parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Allen Hamilton, of Omaha.
Difficulty in arranging their
meeting continued even after i
Hamilton was convinced Mrs.
Catron was his sister. Mrs. Catron
wired her brother she was on her
way. The telegram was sent to
Drew Field instead of to Braden-
ton and in the meantime Hamil- i
ton had obtained a furlough and
wired his sister not to come since
he was on his way to Omaha to
meet her there.
Last Thursday the soldier left
Bradenton in an Army truck en
route to Tampa to catch a train.
His commanding officer, advised
that Mrs. Catron had left for
Florida already, overtook the
Army truck in a jeep driven by
an MP and convinced Hamilton
to return to await his sister's
Mrs. Catron had persuaded her
husband to let her take the fam-
ly savings and go to Omaha to
finr come trace of him. Contact-
ing his adopted parents, she traced
nim to Camp Crowder, Mo., then
to Drew Field and then to Camp
Bradenton. She and Mrs. Shuriger
borrowed money from the Rock-

General Arnold Cals For The
Destruction of Jap Air Force
In a message dispatched to every air base in this country and
throughout the combat area, Major General H. H. Arnold has called
upon the personnel of the Army Air Forces to redouble their efforts
in hastening the day when perpetrators of the crime of execution of
several of the airmen who participated in the bombing of Tokyo will
be brought to justice.
The text of General Arnold's, message is as follows:
"To All Personnel of the Army Air Forces:
"In violation of every rule of military procedure and every con-
cept of human decency the Japanese have executed several of your
brave comrades who took part in the first Tokyo raid. These men
died as heroes. We must not rest. We must redouble our efforts
until the inhuman warlords' who committed this crime have been
utterly destroyed. Remember those comrades when you get a Zero
in your. sight. Have their sacrifice before you when you line up
your bombsight on a Japanese base.
'You have demonstrated the Japanese cannot match you in
aerial combat or in bombardment. Let your answer to their treat-
of your comrades be the destruction of the Japanese air force, their
lines of communication, and the production centers which offer
them opportunity to continue such atrocities."

Jeffrey Lynn, Now
A Shaveail, Checks
In A! Drew Field
The tall, handsome blue-eyed
shavetail, not long out of the Of-
ficers Candidate School, Fort
Monmouth, N. J., did not vary
much in appearance from any of
the countless second lieutenants
who check in at Drew Field. The
new officer registered for assign-
ment in the Army's aircraft warn-
ing training units at the large
Army air base.
True, he was a bit older than
the average shavetail, being 34,
and the name that.he penned on
the personnel register .was a bit
uncommon, having a Swedish
sound about it-Second Lt. Rag-
nar G. Lind. However, the name
was not tagged with prominence.
In fact, there was- little that
stood out sharply on his personal
history record except- the part
where he stated his occupational
background. He was born in Au-
burn, Mass., went to school in
Worcester where a large Scan-
dinavian colony resides, he
was a graduate of Bates College,
he had been a half-miler on the
college track team. Even his oc-
cupational experience just after
graduating from college was not
out of the ordinary, for he spent
the first two years selling tele-
phone service. He wasn't particu-
larly fond of that job, so he gave
it up and on advice from his
former college professor of Eng-
lish, he accepted a job as an Eng-
lish teacher in a high school in
Did Not Like School Teaching
There was nothing glamorous
about school teaching, either, so
Lind gave it up for something that
he had had his heart set on for a
long time-the theater. During his
high school days the theater- bug
had bitten him and from then on
he took part in Little Theater ac-
tivities during his spare hours.
And so he penned in alongside
the space reserved for occupation
-"Contract player, motion pic-
That was the pay-off, and some-
body in the office who has seen
him in a number of films-"Four
Daughters" and "Four Wives,"
with the Lane Sisters and John
Garfield- recognized the former
film player, Jeffrey Lynn. Before
the day was far advanced, the
word spread like wildfire through-
out the field:
"Jeffrey Lynn, the movie star,
And so Lt. Lind, the former
Warner Bros. featured player,
Jeffrey Lynn, was introduced to
Drew Field, one of the largest
Army air bases in the Southeast.
Became Officer the Hard Way
The formereilm star was com-
missioned a second lieutenant in-
the Signal Corps after spending
more than a year in the Army as
an enlisted man. After induction
at Fort MacArthur, Calif., in Feb-
ruary, 1942, he was sent to Camp
Crowder, Missouri, where he re-
ceived his basic training.
From there he was sent to an
Army photography school, where
he learned to operate moving pic-
ture cameras such as are used by
"I found out what it's like to be
behind the camera as well as in
fi-ont of it," Lind said.
Several interesting assignments
followed the completion of his
school course. One was at the Ab-
erdeen Proving Grounds, Md.,
where he was a member of a unit
which filmed the testing of new
war weapons. Next he spent some
time at Fort Belvoir, Va. It was,
on the whole, an exciting experi-
ence and he learned to operate
the instruments of war from pho-
During his year as an enlisted
man, Lind did his share of dirty
details, particularly K.P. Because
he was a celebrity, the sergeants
singled him out in order to see if
he could take it. After a year he
got his chance to take officers'

Operating Equipment of the Air Base Bus Lines
Last week's article was concerned with the ownership of the
Air Base Bus Lines and helped dissipate spurious rumors to the
effect that some officers or enlisted men, or both, were profiting per-
scnally from the operation of this transportation system. This, of
course, is entirely false.
In an exclusive interview with Mr. A. Pickens Coles, president
of the company, a good picture of the equipment situation was se-
cured. According to Mr. Coles, the bus company is doing everything
possible to give good service, and will continue tc do this. There are
grave difficulties, however, as Mr. Coles pointed out-difficulties
concerned with a rapidly expanding military personnel and with a
practical impossibility of getting more equipment. However, he as-
sured the Echoes representative that everything possible would be
dcne-that as fast as more equipment could be obtained, it would
be put into service.
At the present time, serving both Drew and MacDill Fields, there
are 29 buses in operation, divided according to type, as follows:
Twelve "Cattle Cars," which are tractor-trailers (converted new
trailers), seating 50 men.
Eight "Dive Bombers," which are 33-passenger buses, which will
ultimately be equipped with air-doors.
Seven "Butt-Heads," which are regular city-type buses, seating
from 29 to 44 men.
Two "Pride of the Fleet" buses, which are rebuilt inter-city buses,
seating 44 men.
Of course, it is a military secret abaut how many men are a I
Drew and MacDill Fields, but it is no secret that there are plenty of
men. It is obvious that transporting thousands of men into town-
every night is a very definite problem. For example, in February of
this year, the company had 145,000 passengers, including civilian
riders to both fields. In February of 1942, the figure was only one-'
third that. Naturally, with this tremendous expansion, operating
problems are difficult.
In order to help solve this problem, on December 12th, the bus
line moved its terminal from the Union Bus Terminal to the present
location at the other end of the downtown district. Cutting down the
travel through the congested business area increased the number of
possible trips to Drew Field by 15 per cent, with the same amount
of equipment available. Speedier repair service has reduced the
length of time a truck is laid up-the average time now is less than
two days. The bus lines maintain their own repair shop to expedite
this angle of the situation. The number of buses out of service at'
any one time because bf repairs is very low.
Service schedules: To each gate every 30 minutes during the day,
every 15 minutes during the hours before and after the actual rush,
and as fast as the buses can be rushed back during the rush hours.
The company is now operating to absolutely full capacity, and run-
ning the buses as fast as possible consistent with safety regulations.
They have always been willing to get equipment as needed, when-
ever it is available. Unfortunately, at the present time, it is practi-
cally impossible to buy either buses, or old truck bodies on which
bus tops can be built. There are now two more buses in sight, but
that is all.
At any rate, in the face of terrific expansion, the Air Base Bus
Lines have rendered as good service as is possible, under the circum-
stances. They have bought all the equipment they could get, and
would like to buy more if it was available. They have speeded up;
their repair work to keep as many buses as possible in constant oper-
ation. They will continue to do as good a job as humanly possible.,
Next week we will discuss what the Army has done to alleviate
the transportation situation.

At the rate furloughs are being
given out in the 301st, it won't be
long until most everyone in the
squadron will have had one, or
do I hear some, "Oh, Yeah's?"
Well, anyway, everyone due a
furlough will have had one. The
latest furloughs start April 20 and
yours truly is one of the lucky
guys for that date. There are more
coming up, so don't feel too badly
as you may be in the next bunch.
Keep on trying.
Orders have come out recently
that all limited service men will
be taken out of the squadron, and
from what I hear the squadron
will be losing some good men.
one of the first men to be trans-
ferred is Cpl. Elmer Marshall of
the Engineering department, and
many of us will miss his enthu-
siastic dashing around the line,
di*pg his many jobs. Elmer is one
( .Ile old men in the squadron,
t. e started with the squadron
when it was first formed, and no
doubt he will miss his outfit, but
he is getting a break, in that he
is being transferred to his home
state Alabama, and to Marshall
there is no place like Alabama,
no place like home.
The Engineering department
has gained three new officers-
Lts. Ralph G. Young, Chester
Cooper, and Morton L. Levy.
Warrant Officer Staik is at-
tending a course of study at
Chanute Field, Illinois.
Engineering has gained and In-
telligence has lost an Officer, but
we are getting used to this cons-
tant change, as it is an everyday
occurence in all departments.
Cpl. William Barbieri has
completed his examinations for
OCS, and it shouldn't be long
before he will be leaving us for
training. Lots of luck, corporal.
What a time they are having to
get a good system for feeding the
men of the Group without too
much confusion and delay. Each
squadron marched to chow in
formation at a designated time,
and although it reminds us of our
basic training days will work out
satisfactorily if everyone co-
operates. From what is heard if
this system doesn't work, they
will start one that will really be
very bad so perhaps it will pay
us all to try and do our best to
work this one out.

Now that everyone seems to en-
joy riding rather than hoofing to

ing if all safety precautions were
considered in the construction of
our bus line. It seems some
thought should be given for safety

buses! IF one should turn over
on its right side when loaded with
soldiers thereby blocking exit on
that side, we question how many
could escape injury. How about
624th Bombardment Sq.
The question that very often
pops up in the course of conver-
sation amongst soldiers is whether
or not they intend to stay in this
Army after the war is over.
Ninety percent will give you a
very definite NO. In that 10 per-
cent that intends to stay, we have
one, Mike Elizondo. Sgt. Mike is
our propeller specialist and was
an instructor in the 84th for sev-
eral months. He has quite a me-
chanical background, h having
worked on automobile engines for
several years prior to becoming
attached to Uncle Sam. Mike al-
ways had a soft spot in his heart
for airplanes and would like to
follow along these lines after the
war ends. He believes that the
Army affords the best opportu-
nity. We think he will go a long
way. Mike is always studying
something in his spare time in an
effort to' acquire a thorough
knowledge of the flying machine.
His hobby is building model air-
planes and at the present moment
is' working on a miniature dive
bomber which he intends to pre-
sept to the Squadron.
Speaking of hobbies, several of
the boys here in the squadron
have them. Anytime you 'catch
Sgt. Bruce Shown and S:Sgt. Haqs
in deep conversation you can bet
your bottom dollar that they are
discussing pigeocs. Sgt. Vernon
can be seen going through all
sorts of queer exercises in an
effort to build up that physique
of his. Sgt. Beall, our sanitary
engineer spends his spare time
reading the best sellers. Sgt. Man-
ning would pass up a ten dollar
bill to work a cross word puzzle.
Sgts. Tankersley and Fream are
trying their darndest to become
golfers. Sgt. Grimm uses up his
spare time trying to think up a
good excuse why he should have
a three day pass.

race. Laying all jokes aside, he is
a meat specialist.
It rained here Sunday in case
you fellows forgot. We understand
that Cpl. Shoup got soaked to the
skin. Why should he be out in the
rain, one might ask?
We are sending our pill chaser,
Cpl. Gallops, home on a furlough
ihis week. We know that he will
have a good time because a cer-
tain somebody has been writing
to him quite often.
We are wondering who we
might see so that we could get
our chow hours changed. Six
o'clock in the evening is rather
late to eat. Until then we will
abide by the rule.

The "tall tales" our men are
telling as they return from fur-
lough are something for the book.
Sgt. "Casanova" Gilbert confi-
dentially telling of not. one but
several conquests on the train.
Ah, yes! Seems that fast as one
Damsel would reach her destina-
tion, another was eagerly waiting
for our hero to come forward.
(Editor, please send copy to Mrs.
Gilbert). Sgt. Ciesielski took his
Mrs. home to Wisconsin and re-
turned alone. He is strangely
quiet these days and it could be
that he is thinking up a plan of
attack to use on his next trip to
Tampa. Look out, gals, Barney is
on the prowl.

627th Bombardment Sq.
After a peaceful twelve day
soporific calm of the barracks was
shattered this week by the re-
turn of Cpl. Bill Derkacz, the
"Manchester Madman," from fur-
,lough. Built like a fire hydrant,
Bill "fears no man." One of his
more cute stunts is rolling this
correspondent out of the bunk
while said scribe .is trying to
collect a little "shut-eye." For-
sooth, we find no peace. Though
it's good to have him back. Red
blood, you know.
Carl Johnson, the whispers say,
will return from his three-day
pass no longer a Benedict. In
short, he'll be eligible for a Class
A allotment. Indirect, what?
CaSualty: It's a beautiful day
in Tampa-the clouds dot the blue
like puffs of cottonballs the
grass is green (as is the corn) and
the 627th is in the midst of a
terrific softball game-the score
is tied and one man is out-Sgt.
"Pappy" Pappalardo hits a bullet-
drive to right field. The second
baseman, an unreformed soccer
layer, kicks the "blooper" around
he infield as Pappy (sawed-off
edition of Babe Ruth) rolls down
to second base in low gear. As
the afternoon air tilled with
shouts of anguish (so terribly,
terribly sad), Pappy, cursed with
a sudden inspiration, starts to
slide. 0 sad day! The sun wept
and the trees drooped lower, for
when the dust cleared, there was
our valiant Pappy stretched out
6h the ground-with an injured
ankle. At the moment Pap is
roosting up in the hospital, a
"beatific smile" on his pleasant
face. Carry on, Pappy.

Drew Nine Downs
MacDill in Tight
Drew Field's Signal Corps base-
ball team was carried 10 innings
last Sunday by the MacDill Fliers
before they finally won out, 4-3,
on the MacDill Field diamond.
For nine innings Vito Tamulis
of Drew, former major league
pitcher, and Lefty Janieck, of
MacDill, hooked up in a heated
mound duel during which Tamulis
fanned 14 and Janieck 13.
In the fateful tenth, Morris of
Drew started the winning rally
with a single. Reedy followed
w'th another to right. And Joe
Sa ,ino sent what proved to be
the winning tally across the plat-
ter with a sharp single through
the center of the infield to score
Morris from second. MacDill
failed to score in their half of the
MacDill bunched their hits to
sco e all their runs in the fifth
inmng on a pair of doubles by
O'Brien and Kranenberg and sin-
gles by Murphy and Eiche.
The Signaleers picked up two
runs in the eighth to put the ball
game back on even terms after the
Fliers had gone out in front, 3-1,
in the fifth. Singles by Hogan
and Toomin, along with a two-
base error by the left fielder who
dropped Morris' long, looping
drive, sent two runs across the
Both pitchers kept the hits well
scattered as they bore down all
the way, with MacDill leaving 11
men stranded on the bases and
Petite, Morris and Reedy led
the attack for the Signaleer nine
with tw.o hits apiece, while Eiche,
Murphy and Kranenberg managed
a pair apiece for the Fliers.
Pitching his second game of the
season for the Signaleers. Vito
Tamulis increased his strikeout
total to 28 in two games: In his
first appearance of the season at
Lakeland he got 14 by the strike-
out route and added 14 more in
the -MacDill game. Tamulis
pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers
and the St. Louis Browns before
entering the Army.
Sunday's game was the second
straight win of the season for the
Drew nine, as it defeated the Food,
Machinery nine of Lakeland, 9-2
last week in Lakeland.
The Signaleer team will meet
the Inter-Social league All-Stars
