New Quartermaster
Is Old-Time Soldier
Lt. Col. Roy T. McLamore, new
Quartermaster on the Base, is an
old time soldier, having enlisted
in 1917, when he was at Texas
A. & M. College. After completing
an Officer's Training Course, he
was commissioned April 1, 1918.
He served with the 331st Bat-
talion of the 334th Brigade in the

Captain in 1932, Major in 1938,
and Lieutenant Colonel in April,
1940.

Soldiers May Not
Ask for Overseas Duty
Soldier's according to a recent
War Department bulletin, are not
permitted to request military
service overseas because of the
.overburdening of communications-
.that is entailed.
"Due to the natural desire of
all personnel to serve overseas,"
the bulletin stated, "Many indi-
viduals are initiating request for
such assignment. This practice
adds an unnecessary load to al-
ready overburdened channels of
communications and will be dis-
continued immediately."

Drew Field Inaugurates Functional Swimming Program

Under the leadership of Howard
F. Moran, Assistant Field Director
of the Red Cross -at Drew Field,
a functional swimming program
has been begun which will event-
ually teach EVERY SOLDIER at
Drew Field how to handle him-
self in the water-any kind of
water.
"The aim of this program," said
Mr..Moran, "is to teach soldiers
to be able to handle themselves
in any kind of water or weather
--with or without clothing and
packs-and even with rifles. We
want to make men so strong in
their swimming that they could
jump into ice-cold water, if nec-
essary, fully equipped, swim to
shore with all necessary weapons,
and still be able to come up
fighting."
This type of .swimming training

Women Soldiers


Are Trickling hi


from Many Posts
The WAACs are here ..
No longer do Drew soldiers ask
the question, "When are the
WAACs coming to Drew Field?"
Now the question is, "When are
the rest of the WAACs coming?
And what are they going to do?"
For months the Base prepared
for their arrival. Four barracks,
similar to those quartering sol-
diers (and, in addition, bathtubs),
a headquarters building, and a PX
with a beauty parlor were built.
At long last, after months re-
plete with rumors that the
WAACs were coming here, they
began to trickle in on May 14,
when two officers and five en-
listed personnel registered at
Drew. The following day 14 more
women soldiers arrived and set-
tled down in the restricted areas
reserved for them on Rocky Point.
Under the direction of the con-
tingent's commanding officer,
Second Officer Barbara H. Small,
of Beverly, Massachusetts, and her
executive officer, Third Officer
Neva H. Barnes, of Cheyenne,
SWyoming, they got their orderly
room in shape and started to func-
tion as a unit. First Sergeant Mari-
on Junod, of Detroit, Michigan,
heads the enlisted personnel of
19 WAACs, most of whom are
classified as cooks and quarter-
masters. One other non-commis-
sioned officer is included among
them, Supply Sgt. Eugenia Jur-
gens, of New York City.
Down to Business
The administrative machinery
has already been set in action,
with the orderly room personnel
handling the diverse memoranda,
forms, circulars, bulletins and
requisitions of a headquarters
unit. Tall, charming F/Sgt. Junod
and her pretty company clerk,
Auxiliary First Class Christina
Conner, of Denver, Colorado, are
handling the office details at pres-
ent.
When asked how soon the re-
mainder of the expected 250
WAACs would join them, Lt.
Small said with a charming smile,
"I'm not sure. I understand that
26 more are due here Friday from
one of the schools. They are not
going to come here all in one
group. Rather they are going to
trickle in. They are going to come
here from different schools."
For the time being they are eat-
ing at the mess hall of the 314th
Air Base Hq. and Air Base Sq.
pending the opening of their own
mess hall. Their PX and beauty
parlor are being decorated with
murals painted by Pvt. Edward
H. Solomon, art editor of The
Echoes. Their physical training
program will include an archery
team and a softball team that will
play the MacDill WAACs.
What jobs are they going to
perform? They don't know yet.
All they know is that they have
been trained to relieve officers
and men of desk and other jobs
for overseas and combat duty.
The WAACs have been trained for
25 highly technical jobs with the
Army Air Forces.
The enthusiasm of the women
for their service is infectious, and
They have proved so satisfactory
elsewhere that the Army Air
Forces has been talking, about
needing more than 300,c03
WAACs.
Impressions of Drew
How do they like Drew Field?
"Swell," said one.
"Drew Field. it's wonderful!"
ejaculated another.
And it seems to be the co:sen-

M-.,.
Son of L.t
Sf l M


Mr. Jerome II. Drew, son of the
late John H. Drew, Tampa Real
Estate Pioneer who originally
developed what is now known as
Drew Field, visited the Base this
.week. Mr. Drew, who is a Ground
Test Specialist for the Glenn L.
Martin -Nebraska Company, in
Omaha, builders of the famous
Martin Marauder, was amazed at
the changes in the old homestead
since he was last here four years
ago.
The old Drew homestead is
still located on Tampa Bay Bou-
levard, across from the Walter
Tison home. The Drew home, a
large rambling house in the mid-
dle of a colorful grove of orange,
palm, and other flowering trees
was built in 1890, and built to
last. Some of the beams and
sleepers under the house were
made from oak trees that had
n kept 40 years under water
,eason them. Not a termite has
et attacked the sleepers, as evi-
denced by a recent inspection.
Mr. Drew, and his sister Mrs.
Melvin A. Myer, were born in the
old homestead, in 1915 and 1918,
respectively. In the early days,
they played among the trees in
what was then a secluded country
estate. With the coming of the
boom, however, things picked up
in this part of the countryside,
and traffic began to flow rapidly
by their door.
Mr. Drew, Senior, was a land-
owner and real estate' operator.
He owned an 1000 acre tract, in-
eluding the Rocky Point course,
which was intended for homes
and small forms. In 1927, Lind-
bergh's flight across the Atlantic
electrified the country. While
making a tour of the country,
Lindbergh didn't stop at Tampa.
showing to local people the neces-
sity of having an Airport here.
Mayor Perry G. Wall talked
things over with Mr. Drew, Sr.
Mr. Drew told him he had a piece
of property which could easily be
converted to an airport. As a con-
struction man, he undertook the
job at the request of the city,
using a tract of approximately
240 acres, bounded approximately
by what is now Tampa Bay Bou-
levard on the north, 10th Street
on the East, the street leading
to the present Sewage Disposal
on the West, and close to Colum-
bus Drive on the South.
An all steel fire-proof hangar
was erectedn'ear.what is now llth
street and F Street, and turf cov-
ered seeded runways served to
handle the planes. The only pave-
ment was the apron right around
the hangar. The runways were
rolled by a ten ton roller, and
seeded, and kept in excellent con-
dition. The airport, officially
named "Drew Field," was opened
'with a gigantic air meet on Wash-
ington's Birthday in 1928, with
approximately 100,000 visitors, de-
dicated to.the builder, and named
after him.
Marine flyers from Quantico
Base, Virginia, who had partici-
pated in the suppression of the
Nicaragua revolt, arrived here
for the Air Meet shortly after
their return. Air races, stunt fly-
ing for prizes, and other aerial
pageantry took place.
Mr. Jerome Drew, with Major
Alexis B. McMullen, made the
first landing on the new Airport,
in November, 1927, flying a OX5,
$,Fwallow Biplane. Major Mc-
Sullen, now on the General Staff
1 Washington, conducted a Fly-
ig School at Drew Field for an-
Iroximately 6 years afterwards,
turning out many of the landing
Airplanes and Military Pilots of
today.
Mr. Drew leased the Airport
Tract to the City of Tampa, in
1928, for a term of 5 years, with
the stimulation that the City could
purchase the Airport at any time
for a price set by the Tampa Real
Estate Board. The City acquired
the Airnort at the end of the 5
years term, and when the Army
took over in 1941, they leased the
original airport property from the
city, and acquired the remaining
property of the old homestead.
Flying from here during the
early thirties was quite prosper-
ous. Many Tampans had their own
private planes, and contributed
much to the aerial growth of the

city. When MacDill Field was
established, their planes were
originally based here, prior to the
completion of their own airbase.
Most of the present airfield,
running along Columbus Drive,
was then pasture land. Most of
the wooded area north of B Street,
was used as orange groves and
pasture land. The Drew Family
had several hundred cows, and
operated a joint farm and ranch
here.
Mr. Drew, a young man of 28,
graduated from Plant High School
in Tampa, and lived here till
1940. His mother, Mrs. Sylvia D.
Drew, resides at 213V2 Grand
Central Avenue, in Tampa.

skimming the waves to avoid
long-range German fighter planes.
Iceland at that time was sub-
ject to frequent enemy recon-
naissance and nuisance raids on
outlying installations, but beyond
that there was the little enemy
aerial activity, according to Col.
Williams.
His impressions of Iceland are
of high, rugged, volcanic moun-
tains, enormous glaciers, rich
grassy but treeless plains, ponies,
sheep and long summer days and
winter nights.
Colonel Williams confesses that
he once inadvertently ate a pony
steak. Reading a menu in the
leading Reykjavik hotel, he came
.upon an item called "Schmittzel-
hauer." Feeling in an experi-
mental mood, he ordered it and
was served a sweet-tasting, red
colored steak. Not until later did
he learn that he had eaten pony.
The Icelandic pony, small as the
Shetland pony, is almost the only
means of transportation on the
island. Ponies serve as draft ani-
mals as well as mounts.
"It was difficult," said Colonel
Williams, "to become accustomed
to the long hours of daylight in
the summer time and almost im-
possible to schedule time between
work and rest because of this un-
natural balance." He frequently
flew in bright sunlight at mid-
night.
When Col. Williams arrived in
Reykjavik there were two fairly
good motion picture theatres.
These served as the only enter-
tainment centers until sevd!al
military theatres were built.
Living conditions were not very
good at first,' but after a few
months the men were comfort-
ably settled in their Nissen huts.
As a result of leading numerous
combat patrols. over the Arctic
Circle, Col. Williams holds the
Blue Nose Certificate from Nep-
tunis Rex, Northland equivalent
of having crossed the Equator.
Ordered back from Iceland in
the summer of 1942, the Colonel
was appointed Engineering Offi-
cer and Technical Inspector at
the III Fighter Command. In De-
cember he received his promotion
to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Col. Williams was born in New
Bethlehem, Pa.

I'mr Proud of Drew Field --- How About You?
Im proud of Drew Field and I don't mind telling the world about
it, either. Whenever anybody asks me how I like it here, I always
say, I like it fine. It's a grand place, and we're really doing some-
thing big to help the war effort. I'm proud of Drew Field."
Every once in a while I hear a soldier grumble about some minor
grievance-about things that are not particularly important. Per-
onally, I think there are things here which are far more important
than petty troubles. We are living in luxury, compared to the diffi-
culties being experienced 24 hours a day .by our buddies over in the
South Pacific, in Iceland, in North Africa, .and on other fronts not yet
opened up. Some of those same men, now overseas, were once at
Drew Field, and like the rest of us, complained occasionally about
minor irritations which don't amount to a row of beans. I can hear
them saying now, "How swell things were at Drew Field."
I prefer to emphasize the splendid things .we are doing here at
Drew Field. I prefer to think of the mighty airplanes roaring through
the skies-and of the training these men are getting to help blast
4Hitler to hell. I prefer to think of the thousands of Signal Corps men
who are being trained to give warning of the approach of enemy air-
craft, in order that our air bases on the battle fronts may be relatively
safe. I prefer to think of the fine training our men are being given
on the range, to teach them to be completely self-sufficient as far
as defense against enemy ground troops is concerned. I prefer to
think of the fine organizations of combat men being welded together
here, which will lend-their united might against a common enemy.
I wonder how many of us realize the true magnitude of the oper-
ations at Drew Field. Its exact population, the specific details of our
program, and the ultimate destination of our combat teams, are
)MILITARY SECRETS. But it is no secret that Drew Field is huge
in size, and that its many square miles of area are filled with the
fighting activities of fighting men. And it is no secret that soldiers
irom. Drew Field are now fighting in almost every American war
heater. And it is no secret that Drew soldiers are doing a fine job
of it.
So when you write home, tell people how proud you are of
being a Drew Field soldier. You have a right to be.

Lions Sgt. Ralph Sudjian (it used
to be Cpl.), Sgt. Glenn (Bender)
Bitner,' Pvt. Dave (just call me
Don) Kuttner, and Pvt. Don Rig-
gle left the old 69th to carry on
way out in Mississippi. The boys
are going to help organize a Band
out that-a-way, and will be known
as the 382nd ER'S from now on.
Good luck, fellows, and don't
forget the "Deep Sleep" situation.
Am I kidding?
There is a happy, shining face
around the barracks these days,
and it belongs to none other than
Pfc. Bob Crow, sometimes known
as "Old Jim Crow." ioob has turn-
ed his French Horn in for bullets
and has now joined the trumpet
section alongside of Pfc. Bob
Ludwig. Pfc. Crow gave Sgt.
Gordon Booth his notice, but
"Bootsie" says he'll practice and
try to keep up to Crow. I don't
know, Booth; I heard "Old Jim"


going over "Carnival of Venice"
and I think he means business.
We wonder if Trudy knows how
Cpl. Russ grieves, now that she
has that new night job. Russ has
taken to reading poetry and love
stories, and goes around with that
hurt, pained look in his eyes. I
don't -know -if -he's rea.ly. in -love
or if it's something he ate, buth
-after ..: II, T ,.,- I can under-
stand why Cpl. Hoier is playing
a "soulful" horn these days.
With Sgt. Bud Estes home on
furlough and Sgt. Sudjian off to
Mississippi the Band Barracks
seems like a heaven on earth.
When these two got swinging at
each other with axes and baseball
bats, all in fun of course, it got
a bit noisy and even a little bloody
at times. All we have to do now
is get Pfc. Gus De Ridder to get
a new tune to practice, and the
setting will be complete.
T/Sgt. Ellie Eaton and S/Sgt.
John Suszynski still remain the
lady killers of the outfit. Ellie
gets a.phone call every five min-
utes from some gorgeous creature,
and is now trying to hire the
fellows in the Band to take care
of some of his- back numbers. As
for John, he still fights them off
at the USO in town where he
sits in now and then with the
jazz band.

Study of Sgt. Whitehead
All fields have popular soldiers,
and soldiers doing their best.' I'm
writing about one in particular
-a Sgt. who brings us superb
entertainment. Sgt. O. Z. White-
head is the soldier in mention,
and in the opinion of the writer
he deserves the plaudits of many
for his tireless and never ending
job.
On December 9, 1941, two days
after Pearl Harbor, a tall red-
headed gangling young man en-
tered a recruiting office and said,
"I want to enlist." Yes, it was
duty for Country before love for
the theatre, and the theatre was
O.Z.'s greatest love.
The Army's gain was the Thea-
tp, loss. Yes, they lost a coming
@\ e appeared in such Broadway
productions as Madam Bovary
with Constance Cummings; The
Sea Gull with the Lunts; The
Lake with Katherine Hepburn;
Jayhawker with Fred Stone; New
Faces with Henry Fonda; and
more recently, Life With Father
with Lillian Gish. If you didn't
patronize the legitimate theater,
possible you remember O.Z. in
The Grapes cf Wrath (No he was'
not a vine) and Shores of Tripoli
with John Payne.
After his induction at Fort Mc-
Arthur, California, he journeyed
to Camp Hahn, where he received
his basic training and then on to
Drew Field. To the boys at Drew
Field that remember the Base
Arena in Tent City, O. Z. White-
head will stand out for his soldier
shows when Drew Field was in
its infancy. Yes, Drew Field has
grown until now it is one of the
finest air bases, in America, and
O.Z.'s work has grown along with
it. His is a herculean task and to
the men directly connected with
him in the Special Service Office,
he gives his thanks for their ef-
forts and the men say, "A job
well done, O.Z."
Aside from his regular duties
in the Base Special Service Office,
O.Z. produces the soldier shows,
at Recreation Building number'
.one, directs the presentation -of
excerpts from Broadway plays,
also presented in Recreation.
Building number one. .plus his
appearance on Rookie Roy's Scrap
Bcok and the Drew Field Star
Parade over local radio stations
and direct from Drew Field.
Eight years in the theater has
*given O. Z. Whitehead a strong
understanding of men and their
likSs and dislikes, and applying
his knowledge and experience,.
the finished production is born.
After the war, the theater will
regain a star again because O.Z.
has acquired a freshness and a
more serious outlook on life that
will add flavor and freshness'to
any portrayed. It is the wishes of
all of us that his ambitions will
be realized. To a legitimate sol-
dier from the legitimate stage, we
offer legitimately our thanks for
a swell job to a swell guy.

Advice to Pilols

Lost in Jungles
Pilots forced down in jungle or
desert will no longer find them-
selves facing disaster because they
lack the "know-how" of survival
in these regions.
"Jungle and Desert Emergen-
cies," prepared by the Flight Com-
trol Command, is now being
placed in the B-2 Emergency kits
of all parachutes to be used by
pilots operating in desert and
jungle areas.
A bright red cover to make it
easily distinguishable in any ter-
rain, and chemical treatment of
cover and inside pages to guard
them against effects of water and
insects are features of the guide.
Compact and pocket-size, it offers
sound information on practically
any phase of a "Robinson Crusoe"
existence.
For instance it points out that
food is plentiful in most jungles
if you can distinguish between
.,ible and poisonous plants.
.._ ree general rules are: (1) Eat
nothing that has a bitter taste
unless you know what it is. (2)
Avoid all plants that have a milky
sap. (3) Anything that monkeys
eat, you can eat. (And you can
eat the monkeys, too).
As a clue for locating water, it
is stated that almost all animals
travel toward water at dawn and
dusk. Purification procedures are
also described. Where no natural
water source is available, stems
of lianas, jungle grapevines and
rattans contain good water sub-
stitutes, the book adds.
Twenty common edible jungle
plants are illustrated, and meth-
ods for their preparation or cook-
ing discussed. Various animals
and insects suitable for sustaining
life in an emergency are listed.
Among these are termites, which
can be eaten raw after the wings
have .been removed, and beetle
grubs which must be cooked or
dried.
A section on jungle health
stresses the frequent use of
quinine as a malaria preventive
and cautions protection against
the mosquitos, most dangerous of
jungle insects.
Dangers from natives and jun-
gle animals have been much ex-
aggerated according to the guide.
Most animals are harmless if left.

In a Lighter Vein
An American soldier, attached
to one of the American Tank
Units fighting in the Libyan cam-
paign, had been taken many miles
into the desert with his comrades.
This outpost had been quiet for
a day and one afternoon he found
himself with a few hours leave.
His C.O. saw him striding across
the sands clad in bathing trunks.
"Murphy," he shouted, "where are
you going?"
"Swimming, sir,"
"Are you crazy? The ocean is
500 miles away."
"Beautiful big beach, isn't -it?"
replied the soldier.
A fellow walked up to a bar
and ordered a drink. He poured
out the liquor and nibbled the
edge. He ordered another and did
the same thing. The bartender
looked at him and said, "Are you
crazy?"
"No," was the reply, "I like the
rim of the glass."
"But," said the bartender, "the
stem is the best part."
A man walked into a barber
shop, handed, the barber a coin,
and then climbed into the chair.
"Why, sir, thank you," said the
astonished barber, "never before
have I been tipped in advance."
"That is not a tip," snarled the
customer, "It's hush money."

Davis had all but three of his
teeth pulled by the GI dentist.
Now he is going to a civilian den-
tist to have two replaced. I over-
heard him telling one of the fel-
lows that he was going to have
one silver and the other gold.
Now the question arises, who's
gonna pay for them? The girl he
left at the "Dixie Laundry" or
the one for whom he is borrow-
ing money to buy fruit.
Our baseball team won the first
game of their series Sunday, by
beating the Pepsi Cola Juniors,

shutout after the first inning. How
about a little more support from

and let the fellows know that we
are one hundred percent behind
them.
The boys are now going around
singing that once popular dittie
"I don't wanna walk the bush
path, baby, because if I do my
fairy godmother is going to bust
me down to a civilian in the
.army.". Looking out of the win-
dow, I see that the Burma Road
is still very popular. The reason
the boys are out on the road is
because they used the wrong road
to town. You have my deepest
sympathies. The grass isn't tall
enough to hide you from Lily MP
anymore, you know.
There are so many irons in the
fire that I don't know which one
to tell you about or put the most
emphasis. The most important
item that has been brought to my
attention is the ball game sched-
uled for Sunday, May 23, with
the Drew Field All Stars vs. Tam-
pa Black Socks pt the park in
Port Tampa. If you don't want
to miss a swell game, see the one
mentioned above. I understand
that a picnic is also scheduled for
Sunday after the game for the
men in this area. If we continue
the 'extra activities, I am sure
everyone will agree that Drew

Among the several Fighter
Commands on the field is the
Fifteen, which has in its setup
the Sig. Hq. & Hq. Co. (That's US)
and carrying the ball (which all
good Fifteeners are on) is 1st Lt.
Jesse M. Whelan, the C.O.
Speaking of the Proverbial

which was born on the diamond
of the Fifteenth area, has whip-
ped into an all Drew threat in

And what other 3 and 2 will
soon sign up for life and eventu-
ally muster his own little army.
Ask Sgt. Crisp and Cpl. Carrano.
They'll "supply" those answers.
And since we are snapping a
salute to the Supply dept. lets
run over some of the 15th effi-
cient personnel:
Sgt. Sanders keeps the trucks
off the deadline (we hope), while
Sgts. Amsler and Foust and Cpls.
Page and Southwell drive them
like they were their own???
Sgt. Buri is the G.I. stew spe-
cialist with much "thumb-duck-
ing" help from Sgts. Wilson and
Kruk. Cpl. R., B. Smith is eating
so good, his chest has slipped
down around his waist line.
The ball team played the 730
SAW Co. and the game was call-
ed "On account of Darkness." The
final score was 2 to 2 at the end
of the ninth inning.

all of us join in wishing him
Godspeed and the best of luck.
Another loss befell us on the
18th, when Major Joe Edge, A-4,
was transferred to duty else-
where. The major, with his al-
ways friendly and helpful nature,
was extremely well-liked around

Mu'sc is very nice, and a snap-
py military march never fails to
stiffen my spine, but what most
r.f us around this office would
like to know is this: Is "National

able for playing over the Base
Public Address system? Granted
it is a very fine march, but it is
beginning to get just a bit mono-
tonous hearing it 4 times a day
(twice at 11:30 AM and twice at

be nice to hear something else

Now that our schedule is back
to normal, the boys are wonder-
ing what will be next on the
program after a 14-day quaran-
tine of one barracks and a 4-day
Bivouac of the whole squadron.
Life may be dull if something
new isn't injected in our program.
It's a cinch that the Bivouac
was not dull. From the time the
fellows began struggling to shoul-
der their field gear to the time
they dropped their packs after
returning, action and excitement
ran high. The greatest excitement,
and. action too, took place the
last evening there, just at chow
time. While everyone was peace-
fully nibbling on a very, good
meal, suddenly from a peaceful
sky came a gas attack. It was
heartbreaking to look at that good
food through the glass of a gas
mask. and not be able to eat, and
wonder if it would be fit to eat
when the attack was over. The
ipay off came when one of the
smoke bombs started a grass fire
right near a group of tents, caus-
ing everyone to drop everything.
and become a fre fighter. Fortu-
nately the fire was checked in a
short'time, and the gas cleared out
shortly after, so we all could go
back to eating the chow that was
not consumed by the ants. All
in all, Bivouac was a swell vaca-
tion, and a first class morale
builder, and a good time was had
by all.

off, to rest or us? it as an oppor-
tunity to do things work did not
permit. However, the new Chap-
lain, Lt. Opperman, seems to be
a swell fellow, deserving of all
the supportwe can give him, and
this scribe now intends to be at
chapel whenever he has the op-
portunity.
One hears quite a' few queries
as to when we are going to have
our next outing. It seems the boys
really enjoyed the lasi one and
are looking forward to going
again. The writer was in the life
insurance game once and got very
'fed up in the selling end so he
is not attempting any salesman-
ship now. But Uncle Sam is really
giving us more for 6ur dollar than
any outside independent company
will give. And, boy, we should
get full protection, because we'll
never get such a deal again unless
we're soldiers.
When the topkicks around this
area want to make a roll call or
a formation nowadays, they don't
go around the different depart-
ments and barracks. Of course, we
don't know exactly where they
do go, but there does seem to be
-Jot of soldiers hanging around
the vicinity of the barracks for
.A WAACs who arrived recently.

405th Bomb. Group
HEADQUARTERS -
These are busy days for the
405th Bomb. Group. Dirty faces,
but pleasing smiles, were seen
around noon today as men wan-
dered in and out of headquarters,
fully content with the results of
a beautiful noon meal prepared
by each squadron mess.
Yes, you guessed it-we are in
the process of moving. At last
the 405th has sat up on its
haunches and is getting ready to
do big things. You can't keep a
good organization down!-We want
to give away all our grand and
thrilling things about 405th and
its new area. We"ll let the squad-
rons put in a..word.

624th Bomb. Sq.
The squadron had a busy week
on the Rifle Range, where the
list of men who have not quali-
,fied is dwindling rapidly. Sgt.
Gelband led the group in scoring
on Thursday.
We are going to be busy when
we move into our new area. Our
days will be spent trying to find
a shady spot and our nights dodg-
ing mosquitoes. Col. Zipp has of-
.refed a three-day pass to the man
who figures out the best name
for our new home. Sgt. Gelband's
entry is "Mosquito Flats." Sgt.
'Hite will probably want to call
,it "Right :C,.:- '' We are looking
forward to eating in our own
squadron mess again. Under the
supervision of Sgt. Raines, with
Sgts. Hendrickson and Ricka-
baugh as his aides, you can bet
our kitchen will be the best of
the 405th.
Sgt. Fream is seldom seen these
days. Mrs. Fream and Leroy Jr.
are in from Long Island, New
York to spend a little time with
",'Pop."
The Squadron extends its con-
gratulations to the following men
'who advanced a grade during the
past week: T/Sgts. Moulder,
Grennon and Friend; S/Sgts.
Helder, Manning, Duncan, Grimm
Gardner, Gustafson and Motley;
to Sgts. Beasley,. Fouts and Culler;
to Cpls. Best Chizek and Fuller.
A little bit more and we won't
have a private in the outfit.
Our softball team is still look-
ing for victims. Like the Phila-

delphia team of old, I guess we
will have to break up our team
in order to bring it down to a
par with other outfits.

626th Bomb. Sq.
The marrying bug has really
taken over the squadron. This
week we want to extend our con-
gratulations to F/Sgt. Sibley.
The groans and grunts were
,loud this week; also the blisters
were many after a few of our
elite members finished digging
Ice Box and Latrine Pits in the
new area. To hear them talk,
they must have dug clear through
to China and started another
front.
I'm afraid that:we will have
to cut S/Sgt. Downey into sev-
eral pieces. He is so popular, he
is wanted in most every depart-
ment in the Squadron. Maybe it
is his dynamic personality.
We want to extend our luck
and best wishes to S/Sgt. Heldt
who is leaving us this week with
his discharge.
The happy and sad faces are
still showing up in the Barracks
-the former when the boys are
leaving on their furloughs, and
the latter when they return. Fun-
ny, but you never see the reverse
in the above situation.

627th Bomb. Sq.
By Sgt. C. Pappalardo
Cpl. Hannon, 627th columnist
and journalist, has left on his
furlough. In his haste, no sub
was left to fill in. The squadron
is now chancing on free lancers.
Who knows, Hannon may soon
be a roving reporter.
After a little shuffling around,
the 627th is finally commencing
to roll along. Four men have
arrived, Gunner Sgts. Gollozzi,
Strutz, Snyder, and Wallace.
They already are doing their part


in runnir~ the outfit as gunners,
policing the barracks area, etc.
Sgt. Labriola, Parachute Spe-
cialist, has left on furlough for
Scarsdale, New York, to see his
Josephine. Rumors are that she
may be Mrs. Labriola when he
comes back.
Any woman who is smart and
is in the field for matrimony
should see Cpl. Dinsmore, who is
constantly washing and ironing,
which would make any female
envious, especially of his ironing.
Eh, Cpl?
The wheels of this outfit are
T/Sgt. (yes, it's Tech Sgt. now)
Volpicelli and Sgt. Disdair, the
dashing young Idahoan from the
land of potatoes and wooly sheep.
Volpicelli is always proving his
statement to some poor staff, in
pulling guard or latrine duty, he
usually wins.
Sgt. Disdair just came back
from a pass. He dissapointed the
boys. No, no, Mrs. Disdair; pretty
soon he says. Give him time, boys!
In two weeks more, the 627th
will be a full fledged aquatic
squadron. Sgt. Kretchmer and
Cpl. Derckaz are now in strenuous
training with the life saving
school in Tampa. Let's hope they
can swim.

By PFC. DELWIN BAGGETT
Drew Field's Signal ball team
blasted out a 15-0 win over the
MacDill Fliers to open a new

got past second base.
It bvas the eighth victory in nine
games for the Signalmen, and the
fifth win of the season for Ta-
mulis, former major league hurler.
Drew counted once in the first
and continued the onslaught with
a single tally in the second, six
in the fourth, three in the fifth
one in the sixth and three in the
eighth.
Besides turning in a beautiful
mound performance, T a mul Ii s

three hits, including a double, and

Sgt. Vincent Harriman, pudgy
little shortstop with a powerful
wrist motion, hit for the circuit

pace the attack against three Mac-
Dill hurlerq
In the fourth. Drew sent six runs
pouring across the platter, when

Harriman drove a long home run
into deep left-center to score twc
more runs. Johnson drove in the
final run of the inning with a
single to center.

Drew Signalmen

To Meet All-Stars

In Double-Header
A double-header will be played
at Cuscaden Park Sunday af-
ternoon between Drew Field
Signal nine and the Inter. Social
league All Stars beginning at 1:30
p. r. for the benefit of the Drew
team.
Vito Tamulis, former-Brooklyn
Dodger and St. Louis Brown
hurler, will toe the mound in the
first game, with Al Bentz, of Ala-
bama State league, taking over
the pitching chores in the second
game of the bargain bill.
Tamulis has won five games
-and lost one in the six games he
has worked. His only loss came
at the hands of the Orlando Air
Base nine in a 14 inning game on
an error. The chubby southpaw
has averaged 10 strikeouts per
game. His mound partner, the
slender six footer, Al Bentz, has
one win charged to his credit and
also pitched 14 innings of one
game before he was relieved.
The Drew team has won eight
games and lost one in the current
season. The Signalmen hold wins
over MacDill, three times; Food
Machinery of Lakeland, twice;
Tampa U., Sarasota Air Base, In-
ter-Social league All-Stars, with
the only loss to Orlando.
The money derived from this
game will go to buy uniforms and
equipment for the team.
Come out and support your
team Sunday afternoon at Cus-
caden park.
