cookingg and Baking

(ontest of AW UT C

The fourth annual Cooking and
Baking contest of the Aircraft
Warning Unit command's 12 kit-
chens was held last Thursday
afternoon at three o'clock, in kit-
chen number six. Under the spon-
sorship of its mess officer, Lt. P
E. McLaughlin, who inaugurated
the contest, the present one was
said to be the greatest success of
all.
Each kitchen had five items to
prepare: a pan of beans, apple
pie, lemon pie, two-layer cake
and a pan of rolls. All ingredients
were of Army issue, except the
coloring used in the cakes, which
were in all cases beautifully de-
corated and iced. One kitchen at-
tained a charming floral effect,
using colored paper flowers. Al-
together, 60 items were submit-
ted.
The contest was attended -'
Brig. Gen. Stephen H. Sherrill,
commander of ite AWUTC. He
remarked that, in all his time in
the army, he had never seen a
more elaborate affair.
Officer's wives were the judges.
They were: Mrs. Sherrill, wife of
Gen. Sherrill; Mrs. McNamee,
wife of Col. R. W. McNamee, who
was guest of honor; Mrs. Moore,
wife of Lt. Hugh C. Moore; Mrs.
Chamberlain, wife of Major H. R.
Chamberlain; Mrs. Parrish, wife
of Capt. Emmet A. Parrish; and
Mrs. Jay, wife of Major Mack C.
Jay.
Kitchen number nine, while
capturing no firsts on the indi-
vidual dishes, was adjudged best,
winning on points. Its mess of-
ficer is Lt. M. J. Paul. and mess
sergeant, Kenneth Halstead.
First place for the best pan of
beans, cooked by Sgt. Louis
Bondi, went to kitchen 28. Kit-
chen 27 was first with apple pie
baked by Pfc. J. K. Papigian. In
the lemon pie competition, kit-
chen 23 won, with Sgt. Henry
Binder, the baker. A delicately
textured and highly ornamented
two-layer cake won for kitchen
20, Sgt. Arthur J. Seymour being
the baker and decorator, while
Joseph Altmour won for kitchen
21, with a pan of light rolls. A
3-day pass, signed by Gen. Sher-
rill, was given to each man.
Results of the judging for all-
around cooking and baking were
'First, kitchen No. 9; second, kit-
.chen No. 26; third, kitchen No
23: and fourth, kitchen No. 27.
In addition to General Sherril

Drew to Meet
Orlando Nine
Drew Signal baseball team
will try for their 10th win of
the season when they meet the
Army Air Forces School of Ap-
plied. Ta-ics at, Orlando to-
night in the second meeting of
the two nines.
Orlando handed Drew their
only setback several weeks ago
in a 14-inning thriller, 2-1. An
error in the 14th by Drew's
shortstop lost the game. It was
the first defeat suffered by Vito
Tamulis, leading hurler for the
SSinalmen, who now has six
wins against the single defeat.
Coach Chot Thomas will'nom-
inate either Tamulis or Doc
Harden as his mound choice in
the night game.
The Drew nine has a record
of nine victories, one defeat
and a tia game in 11 games this
season.


Camera Crew Arives

M Drew For Filming

Of New M-G-M Movie

A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cam-
era crew, filming the Spencer
Tracy-Irene Dunne picture, "A
Guy Named Joe," arrived at
- Drew Field to begin actual shoot-
ing on the saga of American fight-
Sing men.
Heading the unit is Jay Mar-
s chant, business manager, who
has been in films for 25 years,
and who built the first movie stu-
dio in Japan 15 years ago.
At first it appeared that Miss
Dunne and Mr. Tracy would not
come to Tampa for the picture,
but Dolph M. Zimmer, assistant
Director of the film, said they
would come here for a few days
at the end of the shooting sched-
Sule.
"It begins to look as if they will
have to be here in order to get
the picture out on time." Zimmer
said. "We're 30 days behind sched-
ule because of a lot of bad breaks.
"They say the more trouble you
Shave with a picture, the better it
turns out to be. Boy, this one
ought to be colossal."
Weather Delays Filming
Bad weather delayed filming of
other parts in the Carolines, and
an accident to one of the featured
players. Van Johnson, delayed
production.
The first few days after the ar-
rival of the crew will be devoted
to filming aerial scenes. Dogfights
entailing more than 20 planes-
will be enacted.
Army planes will be fixed up to
resemble Zeros in the New
Guinea scenes, while others were

On the floor of the United

Seortended, on May 17, 1943, some re-
nmarks of a statement later insert-
ed in the Appendix of the Con-

Meet
"Army Angel". Herbert
First Lieutenant Edna P. Her-
;bert, head nurse of Drew Field,
this week recalled her experiences
at the Field when she was the
first nurse to arrive at the newly
.built station hospital in mid-No-
vember, 1942. There was but one
.chair and no other office furni-
ture and no patients, the
:blonde, smiling nurse said. The
patients, however, came in droves
by December 1 and ten nurses
were sent to Drew Field from
MacDill Field on detached service.
Lt. Herbert was enthusiastic in
her praise of the work done by
the MacDill nurses.
Now there are 84 nurses, 14 of
whom arrived this week from Ft.
Meade, Md., for duty in the 1000-
bed hospital which already cove's
an area of more than one square
mile.
Lt. Herbert, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Joe Herbert, Dublin,
Texas, was graduated from the
Corpus Christi School for Nurses
in 1937 and attended Peabody
College, Nashville, Tenn., where
she specialized in public health
nursing, after which she spent
three years in that field in Corpus
Christi.
SLt. Herbert, the only woman
first lieutenant at the Drew Field
Hospital, heads the nursing staff
as principal. One brother, Sgt.
-Joe D. Herbert, 45th Bomb squad-
ron, is somewhere overseas. The
'lieutenant spends what spare time
she has in collecting recordings of
'good. music which she hopes to
'share with the other nurses in the
hospital recreation hall when it is
completed.
Additional duties will be added
to Lt. Herbert's calendar when the
proposed wards, to be opened for
the members of the 756th WAAC
Post Headquarters Company, are
in operation. A clinic, under the
direction of the staff officers and
Lt. Herbert, is held daily for the
WAACs who are cared for in the
rooms off the wards at the pr:i-
ent time.
Questioned as to why she joir,.: I
SArmy Nurses Corps, Lt. H..-
rt said that the married nur---
could fill the needs of the nursi'!
profession on the home front ai':
that it is the duty of unmarri:.:
nurses to make themselves avail-
able for overseas dity for whi:h
she hopes. "Of course. I'll stay i,
after the war," Lt. Herbert sai:-
with emphasis. "Nurcss will h-
needed even more after the v 1
than now. I'll be doing my bit s
long as there is a need for m.

Features
WAACs in
June 4th Issue


Drew Field soldiers and WAACs
should not fail to obtain a copy
of the June 4th YANK.
The Enlisted Man's Weekly
bows to the enlisted woman in
this issue, with a cover and;
feature article devoted to the
WAACs. Cpl. E. M. Halliday, an
enlisted man of Fort Sill, Okla-
homa, gives us a summary of
WAAC training and accomplish-
ments at his post, complete with
photo illustrations. Cover of this
issue, depicting "a WAAC first
sergeant, -ties in with the article. I
"What the WAAC's Think of
the Army" is first in a series of
YANK articles on the Women's
Auxiliary Corps.
Another outstanding feature of
the June 4th is an item entitled
"What Do Enemy Prisoners Think
About the War?" Of this article,
YANK's editor says:."When Sgt.
Lehman returned from the Tuni-
sian front to write a dispatch, he
found in his pocket 10 pages of
scribbling he had jotted down
about Italian and German priso-
ners. The notes made such good
reading, that he decided to radio
them to YANK."
John Scarne's latest advice to
servicemen comes in a new gam-
bling article, "It's In The Cards."
Giving another inside story of
how card sharks operate and how
to spot the crooked gambler's
universal sign language, the arti-
cle is well illustrated with close-
ups of the various signals.
The June 4th issue of YANK,
The Army Weekly, goes on sale

"Of Mice and Men" is a down-to-e6!.th realistic story of the
friendship of iwo men-two ranch-hands who have wandered from
one job to another because of necessity rather than shiftlessness,
the shiftlessness stemming from Lennie; a powerful man with a
child-like simplicity.

GROUP HEADQUARTERS
M/Sgt. Robert A. Traylor, group
sergeant major, Headquarters, has
been doing a very efficient job.
M/Sgt. Will Young, sergeant
major in training with the Group,
is doing his job very well while
our own sergeant major is on fur-
lough.
T/Sgt. Edward R. Williams, per-
sonnel sergeant major, in his own
quiet little way gets a lot of work
done. His assistant, S/Sgt. Joseph
P. Braswell, if he would do some
of his own work instead of trying
to have the other fellows do it,
WELL???
S/Sgt. Bernard G. Brinker is a
very efficient worker who joined
us a short time ago and will go
a long way-up, we hope.

301st Bomb. Sq.
A swell time was had by all at
the recent beer party and song-
fest held in the mess hall. An es-
timated 500 men attended, and a
more jovial and well-behaved
group you've never seen. The
best group singing we've heard
in a long time reverberated in the
hall.
Lt. Hire, Sq. S-2, is on a much-
deserved three-day pass. Our
guess is he is Savannah bound.
Sgt. Horton is one of the lucky
ones who is spending a much-de-
served furlough back in old Ken-
tucky. S/Sgt. Bacon has taken
over as acting first sergeant, and
is doing a fine job.
"Right Answer or Else" is the
name of a very popular quiz pro-
gram, in which the four squad-
rons of the 84th Group are com-
peting for honors. Each squadron
picks five of their best quiz kids
to represent them, with the adju-
tant of each squadron as one of
contestants. We've been wonder-

contest was between the 302nd
and 304th, with much interest
shown by each one. The 301st will
meet the 303rd very shortly, and
we expect a large turnout of the
squadron to support their team.
Watch the bulletin board for par-
ticulars.

302nd Bomb. Sq.
If anyone knows the ins and
outs of the life and death of a
gunner, it's Sgt. Roy, who recent-
ly returned from Africa. The ser-
geant expressed some opinions in
a recent interview. I quote, "Some
fellows get the impression that
becoming a gunner will help them
get out of work and get them an
easy rating. Anyone with that
idea in his head should check up
on the gunners and see if they
don't deserve those ratings fully.
After a stiff course at a technical
school, they are assigned to a
squadron, and there they go to
school six days a week to perfect
that training. In addition to this,
they pull KP, guard duty, charge
of quarters, and qualify on the
range with a rifle. All this is done
in hours when they are not flying.
Why not give the gunners the
credit they deserve instead of go-

Our squadron is certainly get-
ting tough these days, especially
on calisthenics. Those restrictions
are being handed out right and
left lately. Since this started, at-
tendance has picked up tremen-
dously and this is the way it
should be always. Why, among
the "Charles Atlases" was M. Sgt.
Mullens. You must admit that ex-
ercises are compulsory if we are
to get anywhere during these
times.
A certain figure carl be seen in
the Engineering office. Why, of
course, it's "Mickey Rooney." I
don't mean Mickey Rooney, the
movie star, but M/Sgt. Lajeun-
nesse is the man. If anybody ever
resembled the great star, Lajeun-
nesse is that fellow. That milky-
white complexion, soft blond hair,
and especially those great big
blue eyes. Don't take it too hard,
Sergeant.
Congratulations are extended to
Kopp, Hickox, Walker, Hoeflich,
Hinzman, Heiman on their rise to
staff sergeants. Good luck, boys,
and remember not to linger, but
to keep 'em flying, always.

S/Sgt. Boehm is contemplating
going home on furlough. The boys
in the squadron are sure going
to miss his hillbilly music and
we all wonder just how Pfc. La
Sart will manage the nightly con-
certs without his partner.
Cpl. Farley returned from his
furlough looking as though he
would need another one to rest
up. Who had T/Sgt. Stump
worried about his motor vehicle?
In this hot weather, the excite-
ment and worry really brought
the color in Sgt. Stump's nose to
a brilliant red.
Sgt. Comarnisky has finally re-
ceived his furlough and this cor-
respondent will bet that he still
doesn't believe it. "By golley!!"
The outing held by this Group
last Saturday was a great suc-

of them to suit this outfit. How-
ever, we did notice a few of the
fellows were battered and bruised
from the water football game.
Other than that, there were no
casualties.
T/Sgt. Oehke quietly slipped
out and is now blissfully married.
Congratulations, Sergeant.

THE ECHOED S'

starring in this production before
it is over.
There's one 'thing about it:
these mess sergeants have really
shown their mettle since the
Group has moved. These tasty
meals have proven almost too
much for the boys. "Seconds" is
getting to be a very popular per-
formance around here. Too bad a
siesta can't be provided also. No,
that isn't a part of the Special
Services' job. Anything resem-
bling a siesta around here is
purely coincidental-except may-
be "Hefty" Oringer, quite deftly
amusing himself with his files
section. No hard feelings, Cor-
poral, we just haven't acquired
the art yet; give us time. Who
said that?

624th Bomb. Sq.
The comments the 22nd Wing
had in last week's edition of The
Echoes caused quite a bit of
laughter in the squadron. We are
wondering on what they are bas-
ing their claims of having a soft-
ball team. We would like to play
them another game, but there is
nothing so engaging in a sport
where the opposition.is unable to
%prnish even a little competition.
e would suggest that the Wing
'.-ild up their club, get a reputa-
tion, and then contact us again.
The 624th and Sgt. Duff are
really a good volleyball club.
They won a close series from
Headquarters this past week and
appreciate the keen competition
offered by a club with such a lim-
ited number of available men. We
look forward, not too confidently,
to the day when Sgts. Burke and
Fream will be in the opposing
line-up.
Kid "Blondie" McCoy is on his
way to Texas. The "buxom" arma-
ment sergeant was on pins and
needles until the furlough paper
was handed.to him. We wonder if
he will see any of Savannah on.
this trip.
The entire squadron bows to the
superb cooking of our mess per-'
sonnel. Since moving to the ne'.'
area and having a separate Tmicis,
the boys are going around vilh a
satisfied look. We salute.. Sgts,
Raines, Hendrickon, Rickabaiugh
and our new cooks, Pfcs. Herzogr
King, and Fussell, for the chow
they are putting out. They even
make a frankfurter taste good.
Ask Cpl. Oringer about the food.
He's a living example of what
food can do to a man. Anyway,
three cheers for the cooks!

M/Sgt. Fricks has been a big

When there is work to be done'
you will find him out in th,- shade.
We understand S/Sgt. Gunn-.ha

cations tent for him. In cast he is
needed, you will find him over-
there asleep in his bunk. After-
all, a man has to have his rest.

you don't, just follow S/Sgt FE. L

evenings. We are anxious to know
if Eddie has met her Papa yet.
Be careful, Eddie, you know it is
much cheaper to live single dur-
ing war times.
Cpl. George A. Bruens is now
taking swimming lessons. It is ru-
mored he will teach us some of
the latest strokes in the near fu-
ture.
We received our squadron pic-
tures yesterday. They were really
swell and I am sure that all of us
in later years will look at these
pictures and say, "What a grand
old outfit we were." ,

By SGT. C. PAPPALARDO
The last few days the Ordnance
Department has been on the beam.
Sgt. Frank Scheaffer has been
very busy. However, he seems to
enjoy his duties, going to the mag-
azine area 15 or 20 times a day.
You see, boys, the WAACs area
is close at hand. You better watch
it, Frank.
"Ronnie, oh Ronnie." That's
S/Sgt. Frank J. Lorman, Jr., call-
ing his wife in his sleep. He is in
a flutter over h'is approaching
"furlough. Also he is very anxious
-not only to see his Ronnie, but to
sh.:.' his recently acquired stripes.
NNo doubt that wife of his will be
pl:..'-i of that "big bad" husband
of her';. We wish we could be
pres -nt at that eventful meeting
ot ihuband and wife. Isn't mar-
r1ifd ilfe wonderful, boys?
Labriola has just written to the
hbo.s rt o the 627th. He says, "Justa
one time every thing looks grand,"
Expect to see Mrs. Labriola when
hlt gets back. Good luck, Labri-
ola, not that you'll need it.
Ole Curly S/Sgt. Bellam, that's
the 627th supply sergeant, can get
you needles, pins, salvage and all,
.but never the right size. His ex-
cuses: "The Quartermaster doesn't
have your size or they just ran
out." Besides being our supply
sergeant, Curly is a wizard with
the damsels fair, especially with
the 'Tampa gals." His technique
is a lock of his curly black hair.
Wottaman, eh, boys?
The 627th immortal artist of
the kitchen surely knows how to
cut up a meal in a hurry, espe-
cially cold cuts. We've heard sto-
ries about Sgt. Puckett and his
continual search into the woods
for food for his "Pappy." What
about that, Sergeant? Sgt. Sing
seems to live up to his name,
only the boys are still wondering
why a Chinese cook doesn't cook
chop suey. Aha! this is it: he ran
a laundry. Farganis, always smil-
ing (especially when be burns the
stew), says eat, boys, eat between
smiles. With new additions to the
kitchen, T/Sgt. Beck is sure dish-
ing some mighty good food which

Right on the heels of the de-
parture of Sgt. Ralph Sudjian's
*quartet (now at Laurel, Miss.),
'Cpl. Hal Richman, with Pfcs. Ros-
'coe Lamb and Alvin Wagner in
tow, hied off to Waycross, Ga.,
as the nucleus for the 464th AAF
Band. If general orders call for
any more cadres from our outfit,
the 69-ers will have to put in for
a cadre of their own.
The transfer of Pvt. Bob Bud-
nik, saxist and clarinetist of De-
troit, Mich., to- our organization,
was a shot in the arm for our at-
tack of "cadre-itis." If we
could only get some trombone
men now.
T. Sgt. Ellie Eaton's announcing
of last Thursday's band concert
at RB No. 1 turned out to be a
"magnificent" job of slander, li-
bel and defamation of character.
'Spurious wedding announcements
'ought to be punishable under the
Articles of War. Oh, well, your
BN-er may settle for another fur-
lough SOON.
Pfc. Woolkie Woodke hopes to
'share some of Pfc. Harry Wil-
liams' string-bass chores. Now
:that Richman is gone, Woodke has
begun the study of the "dog-
house" in earnest-wotta guy!
Pfc. Sam Schiavone has decided
'to give up umpiring. No one
talked to him for two days after
the last ball game. Howja get in
the Army with your bad glim-
mers, Sam?
Pvt. Frank Zecchino, formerly
with the Boston Symphony, is
'brushing up on his fiddling, with
:Sgt. Jack Hartman (organist and
assistant to the Base Chaplain) as
'his accompanist. Frank is ready-
ing for a wedding (not his own)
recital.
Pfc. Gus DeRidder finally
"'took off" with his hot chorus of
"Confessin' at the Officers' Club
last Saturday. Now he's gotta loin
a new number-or else ... or else
he'll play "Confessin' AGAIN.
Wonder if Sgt. Bud Estes will
notice his name on the CQ list
when he gets back from furlough
this week? Just a little present
for you, Bud. ,
It looks as though Sgt. Woody
Harwick has displaced Sgt.'Gor-
don Booth as the Band's social
lion. And it all started at that
boat launching a couple of Sun-
days ago. What have you got to
say for yourself, Boothsie?

Song-writers' success has come
;to Pvt. Emmett Mozley and Pfc.
:Aaron Spelling of Tarrant Field,
Tex. Their first composition to be
:played by a name band is "I'll

Dporsey on his regular broadcast.

The Japanese Mitsubishi Mitsu 95 seaplane bomber is shown here as the
twenty-first in the enemy plane silhouette series by the Aeronautical Chambcr
of Commerce of America. Powered by three aircooled engines, this biplane
has a maximum speed of less than 160 miles an hour and a range of under
2500 miles. Its lower wing has much shorter span than the upper and has
wing-tip floats. The wing tips are square and the horizontal elements of
its tail are nearly rectangular. The top of the rudder rides high, being only
sightly lower than the top wing. The plane carries about a ton of bombs.

.ito Tamulis, ex-Dodger from
the big show, won his seventh
game of the season in giving up
fou' hits for a 4-1 win over an
all-star team from the Cuban
Club-Loyal Knights, while in the
second game the Signalmen took
on the Italian Club-Centro Asturi-
ano stars for a 1 to 1 tie.
The second game of the double-
--header -turned in a beautiful
aching duel between Al Bentz of
Jew and M. Hernandez of the
jtars. Both pitchers mowed the
hitters' down through 12 torrid in-
nings before the 6 o'clock Sunday
law halted the game.
-'amulis gave up but four hits
and did not allow a safe blow
after the fourth inning in winning
the opening game. He struck out
six. Drew nicked three hurlers
for seven hits.
Homer Johnson, the hoy who'
can't miss them at first and,
proved this by fielding balls all
over the lot, led off with a triple

game and scored on Thomas' in-

Drew scored twice in the fifth
.on hits by McAtee, Rushing and'
Genovese, with the aid of infield
outs from Tamulis, and Johnson.
lThe Signalmen's other tally came
in the fourth on hits by Harriman
and Thomas, along with a stolen
base and error by the-catcher.
In the second game the Stars
led the Drew team, 1 to 0. until
the ninth inning when Benkowski
walked, was sacrificed to second
and scored on Bentz' long double
to left-center to send the game
into extra innings..
Bentz has now worked 26 and

worked 14 1-3 innings against
Food Machinery of Lakeland sev-
eral weeks ago and today-'s game
puts him on the list with the

SThe fielding of Shortstop Geno-i
vese was outstanding in going for
to his right and left to field balls
and get hi.' man. He handled 16
chances flawlessly. His pay-off
play came in the 11th inning of
the second game. when he went
deep in behind the bag to scoon

his gloved hand and throw the
