Gef Furlough Gas
Beginning May 14th soldiers on
leave for. three days or more, can
get from one to five gallons of
gasoline by presenting their fur-
lough papers to their HOME ra-
tioning board, and explaining
their needs for gasoline.
This is a countrywide proposi-
tion, just announced by the OPA,
which recognizes'that a soldier on
.leave has a lot of things to attend
to and very little time to take
care of them. On the other hand,
the OPA states that there is still
an urgent need for being very
;careful about the way gas is
The procedure is simple-the
soldier on leave should appear
before his local (his home town)
ration board with his furlough
papers, and make a statement of
how many miles he expects to
travel on PERSONAL ERRANDS
while he is home. At the board's
discretion, he will receive from
one to five gallons of gasoline
for his entire leave.
Drew soldiers are not to request
furlough gasoline from the Drew
Field Ration Board. Get your
gasoline in your own home town
while you are there.

Flash! It was sensational, gi-
gantic, and supercollosal, the
formal dance given on May 8,
and will long be remembered in
the minds of the 59th Avn. Sqn.
and the 1018th and 911 Q.M. The
atmosphere of the hall was pa-
triotic with beautiful red, white,
and blue decorations suspended
in all types of architectural de-
.signs. Behind the orchestra were
the Stars and Stripes and a "V"
The very deep glow of the vari-
colored lights displayed harmoni-
ously the traits of a natural rain-
bow, and seemed to cast a spell
of love. The gorgeous creatures
of the feminine world, each dis-
played the simplicity of fashion
so that each individual could have
been choose unanimously as
winner of any fashion show. The
beautiful evening gowns with low
cut backs, the last word in per-
fect formal dress. All the men
were dressed in khaki uniforms,
you know. Of course they were
proud of their dress, because they
are the best dressed soldiers in
During the intermission refresh-
ments were served, and souvenirs
given to all. The magnetic charms
paid individual compliment, say-
ing (quote) "This occasion was'
the best of its kind, and we en-
joyed ourselves immensely." The
dance closed at midnight with.
the singing of "God Bless Amer-

Soldiers Urged to Eat Meals at Drew Field;
Civilian Restaurants Are Too Congested
Drew Field soldiers are urged
to patronize civilian restaurants
in Tamnpa and surrounding towns,
only when there is no possible
way for them to eat in camp.
otong lines of both soldiers and
civilians waiting for meals at all
downtown eating places, are mute
evidence that an overcrowded
condition exists. This can be al-
leviated considerably if Drew sol-
diers will eat supper on the Field
before going to'town in the eve-
These are hard times, and Tam-
pa restaurants are now being
taxed to the limit of their capa-
city. Help is hard to get. Food al-
lowa.ces for each restaurant are
based on food consumption of over
a year ago-before the military
population of Tampa rose consi-
derably. Civilian population has
increased considerably during that
time, too, due to increased pro-
duction at the Shipyards and
other defense industries.
So we have two factors--re-
duced food allowances and greatly
increased soldier and civilian pop-
ulations who patronize the res-
taurants. Between the two
squeezes, the restaurants are in a
They hesitate very much to re-
fuse to sell meals to soldiers. On
the other hand, their regular pa-
trons,, who work in the defense
industries, find it hard, t get ade-
quate food, arid'have .to stand in
line a long while before being
served. The Commanding Officer
of Drew Field does not want to
order aoldietsgout of civilian res-
taurants, because, he appreciates
the fact that every soldier appre-
ciates, an occasional outside meal
as a threat.
But some soldiers are overdoing
.a good thing. In order that con-
gestion may be reduced, and that
the restaurants may have ade-
quate food to serve all customers,
we, urge every Drew soldier to
eat in town only when absolutely
necessary. No one is unduly con-
cerned about snacks and sandwi-
ches in .the late evening-but eat-

28th, 1917. He was assigned to the
Rainbow Division and participat-
ed in many famous battles of
World War I, including the Battle
of Champiegne, Aisne, Marne and
St. Mihiel. After the Armistice.
Sgt. Grimes served in the Army
of Occupation at Cornsdorf, Ger-
many, until April, 1919, when he
returned to the United States.
After his return to this coun-
try, Sgt. Grimes decided to make
soldiering his career. Having had
an opportunity to see the part,
even though a small one, that
aviation played in World War I,
he applied for a transfer to that
His first assignment was with
the Aviation Supply department
at Montgomery, Ala., and since
that time in 1919 Sgt. Grimes has
seen service at Selfridge Field,
Honolulu, Hawaii; Fort Crockett,
Texas; Chanute Field, Ill.; Ran-
dolph Field, Texas; Wheeler Field,
Hawaii; Barksdale Field, La.;
Hunter Field, Savannah, Ga., and
finally to Drew Field.

It was a sad day for Mrs. Kenneth Gibson (above) when she
arrived from Logansport, Indiana, to visit her soldier husband here
at Drew Field, only to learn that he was confined in a 10-day quar-
antine. Although it was against regulations, Army officers of Gib-
son's signal corps Air warning unit let down ihe bars and permitted
her to talk to him over the signal corps telephone system. Each day,
during the entire period, she visited the field and made her call.
The long wait finally ended, and Mrs. Gibson was happily united

302nd Bomb. Sq.
By G.K. and A.G.
This week found the 302nd back
at its usual grind of work, sweat,
play and calisthenics. Last week's
vacation at Belleair Beach is now
but a memory-one that is s-oon
not to be forgotten.
The physical training program
has been revised. The men may
now take their daily exercises on
the line at 10:00 a. m. or at 4:00
p. m. at the squadron area. While
we're on the subject of exercises,
the Armament shop wants every-
body to know that they defeated
the Radio shop 12 to 1 Saturday
at softball. The Radio department
claims Armament used 26 men
on its team, while the Armorers
say the Communication men
cheated by having the umpire on
their side. Somebody isn't telling
We're sorry to hear that Cpl.
Lopeman of Communications has
transferred to detached service.
We hope he comes back to the
302nd as soon as he's through
with his present work.
.The privates are now having
the laugh ,on the noncoms. For
weeks the backbone of the army
has been doing more than its
share of K.P. and guard duty.
Now it does their heart good to
see men of two or three stripes
working side-by-side with them.
No longer do the privates have
to take all the garbage thrown
at them-the corporals and ser-
geants are now getting a taste of
their own medicine. How come?
A new ruling makes the noncoms
