'Just for Laughs,'

USO-Camp Show,

Here on July 9

USO-Camp Shows will present
their rollicking revue, "Just for
Laughs," at Rec. Hall No. 1 on
July 9th at 8 P. M.
Peopled by a group of young
ut veteran supper club and vau-
deville stars, it is a counterpart
of the screamingly -funny "Hell-
zapoppin," which broke all rec-
ords during its exceptional run
on Broadway and the road.
The versatile comedian, Bobby
Pincus, is the featured' player.
Bobby has been a headliner at
Leon & Eddie's and the Hurri-
cane in New York, the Palladium;
London, and has also played at
the Montmartre Cafe in Paris.
Master of ceremonies and
straight man of the show is Jack
Munn. who has played similar
roles opposite Phil Silvers, Joey
Faye and Ben Blue.
There are pretty girls with the
fast-tapping dancer, Ruth Foster;
attractive June Lloyd, acrobatic
dancer, and Ginger Dulo, charm-
ing chanteuse, who also work in
the comedy sketches.
Nelson & Marsh, dance team,
offer a series of modern dance
routines done with grace and
style.
Rounding out the show is Jed
Dooley, assisted by Audree Ev-
ans. Dooley's "Remarks Befitting
the Occasion," a running patter of
rapid-fire comment on things in
general, are delivered while he
is performing astounding feats of
balance and skill with ropes
while riding a unicycle. Jed Doo-
ley and his partner have just con-
cluded a tour of the chief vaude-
ville theaters in the northeast.

Drew Net Team Defeats
Tampa Shipbuilders, 3-2

Exceptional play on the part
of the Drew net team Wednesday
afternoon resulted in the nosing
out of the Tampa Shipbuilders
in a match preliminary to the
opening of the city tennis league,
at the Davis Islands Tennis Club.
Lt. Fisher and Sgt. Dunn played
Alvarez and Doll. winning one;
set each, the score 2-all.
Singles resulted in Lt. Roland
Lubin, Drew, defeating Russell
Tarr, 6-0, 6-2. Lt. Bob Weller,
Drew, lost to Sandy Paniello, 0-6,
4-6.. Lt. Irving Fisher was defeat-
ed by Bobby Doll, 3-6, 2-6, while
Lt. Roland. Segal defeated Jack
Alvarez, 6-2, 6-3.

Military Review To

Be Held Saturday

After Work Hours

Drew Field will have no par-
ticular fanfare, no pyrotechnic
display, on this Fourth of July.
War is a serious business and
for that reason this national holi-
day, symbolic of our Declaration
of Independence, will not be cele-
brated as a holiday in the accept-
ed sense of the word. We are too
busy fighting a war to retain the
four freedoms for which the war
of independence was fought to
take out too much time for cele-
brating.
So on July 4 Drew Field offi-
cers and enlisted men, WAACs
and civilians, will work as usual
on the job of preparing to meet
and beat the enemy.
Pilots will slide behind the
controls of big bombing planes
to help write in the sky Ameri-
can determination to exterminate
the enemies of democracy. Me-
chanics will oil and repair jeeps
and trucks, planes and trailers.
The administrative machinery
that it takes to run a big air base
like Drew will carry on at nornial
strength.
Time will be taken, however,
after working hours for a mili-
tary review. It will be held on
the airdrome ranp on Saturday,
July 3, from 5:00 to 5:15 p.m.
Brig. Gen. Stephen H. Sherrill,
commanding general of the
AWUTC, will review it.
More than 10,000 soldiers are
expected to participate. The re-
view will not be open to the pub-
lic.
JULY 4, 1776
All day, from early morning,
the streets of quiet old Philadel-
phia were filled with a throng of
people. Earnestly they talked in
little groups, but ever their eyes
swept back to the door of the
State House. There the Continen-
tal Congress was meeting. It was
July 4, 1776.
The waiting people knew that
debate on Mr. Jefferson's resolu-
tion was coming to a head. It was
a declaration of complete inde-
pendence, no less! Some were not
ready to go so far. Many had
doubts. The very foundations of
the world they knew seemed
slipping away.
It was hot. The hours passed.
The sun swept through the zenith.
At about two in the afternoon
the door opened, and a voice
was heard *o cry excitedly, "It
has passed!"
The old bellman, waiting de-
iectedly in the belfry. caught a
signal from a boy sentinel shout-
ing, "Ring! Ring!" He threw the
iron clapper of the bell against
its side. Its metalic voice was the
song of a new world to be. It
spoke aloud the words propheti-
cally graven around its rim:
"Proclaim Liberty throughout
all the lard unto all the inhabi-
tants thereof."

To 2nd Officer Doris E. Wara, who arrived recently to take com-
mand of the 756th WAAC Post Headquarters Company, military
discipline is nothing new. Lt. Ward was a member of the High
School Farmerettes, a volunteer organization composed of high
school girls from 16 to 18 years of age during World War I.
From June to November, 1917, the girls in the Somerville (Mass.)
High School donned blue bibbed overalls, middy blouses and huge
straw hats, and went to work in the fields at neighboring farms to
relieve the shortage of manpower due to the war. The .organization
was comparable to the "Land Corps" being recruited now in this
country.
"The life of this volunteer*
group was not a great deal differ- portant factor in post-war recon-
ent from that of the WAAC," said zation because she wants to go

The percentage averaged 40
percent, according to Lt. Charles

Classes were instituted under the
direction of certified Red Cross
instructors. Over a period of two
weeks, more than 200 soldiers
have completed a course enabling
them to swim 200 yards.
The program calls for three les-
sons a week at Cuscaden Park

to and from the pool.
Lt. Van Sistine, AWUTC Phy-

the direction of Lt. Friedland.
Pvt. Kane is instructor for the
group.


This is a service well worth

Why Did You Join the WAllA

JUANITA WILKINSON. ELGIN, ILLINOIS
"I was a secretary for 17 years. i bought war bonds and stamps,
but it didn't seem to be enough. I was also in air-raid warning serv-
ice and it still didn't make me feel that I was doing all I could for
the war effort. My brother was given a medical discharge the day
I was enrolled, so I feel now that I am taking his' place. As under-
study to the sergeant major, I feel for the first time that I'm doing
what I came into the WAAC for."
NORA KING, WILLIAMSBURG, KENTUCKY
"There was no one in my family in the service. I was teaching
school and it seemed our family ought to be represented in the serv-
ice, so I joined up. As file *- erk in the sergeant major's office, I feel
closer to the war .. as if I'm really doing something. I wouldn't
get out if I could!"
FRIEDA CHURCH, BARNEVELD, WISCONSIN
"My brother-in-law was in the service, and my sister worked
with the Red Cross. I stayed home and kept house for the family
after Mother's death. I wanted to do something, so here I am. Since
the Women's Army also moves on its stomach, I feel that I'm doing
a real job in supervising and inspecting the mess halls to see that
the soldiers are well and scientifically fed."
ALFREDA HOAGLAND, OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA
"Going to school at the University of Oklahoma didn't seem to be
of much value to the service. After all, there is a war on! My boy
friend, my brother and all my cousins were in there fighting. The
least I could do was to relieve some soldier, so I joined the WAAC.
As mail clerk in the records, section, I feel I'm really helping out.
The daily mail is as important to the morale of the WAAC as it is
to the soldier. I'm helping the .men and women in the service to get
it over."
MAY GEORGE, HASTINGS, WEST VIRGINIA
"One of my brothers is in England with the American Army. An-
other brother failed to pass the physical examination. He was heart-
broken. I felt that I could replace him by enrolling in the WAAC.
Working in a drug store as clerk and bookkeeper couldn't satisfy me
when I know there was a more important job to be done. I'm happy
now with my work in the Publications Office. I'm really doing my
job."
LOIS PHILLIPS, RYAN. OKLAHOMA
"I was a deputy in the county clerk's office. My husband had been
in the Army for more than two years. I felt I had to do something
that would make me feel I was helping to get the war over so my
husband could come home and we could live a normal life again. I'm
very happy with my work. Typing and filing doesn't sound so ex-
citing, but I will replace a man who can carry a gun beside my hus-
band. That's why I joined the WAAC."
r -r r -r
MATILDA CELIK, PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA
"I wanted to get this war over as fast as possible- Working as a
clerk in a general store was too far removed from the war work I
felt I could do. I have a brother in the service. I feel nearer to him
as I work over military files in the records section. I wouldn't get
out if I could not until the war is over and my brother is home
again safe and well."
PATRICIA ULRICH, SOUTH BEND, INDIANA
"Everyone at home was gone. With my two brothers in the Navy
Air Corps, it wasn't like home. I worked in a defense plant, but
I felt that wasn't enough. Now, in charge of the Base Message Cen-
ter, I feel that I'm in there pitching with my brothers. I like it."
HELEN RIMINI, VIRDEN, ILLINOIS
"Working as receiving and mail clerk in a hospital was too peace-
ful in times like these. I wanted to be in this thing wholeheartedly.
There was no one in my immediate family in the service, so my girl
friend and I signed up together. Now she is in California and I am
here, but neither of us would get out. I'm distribution clerk in the
message center and it's a real job."
ADELAIDE B. LOCKHART, BROCKTON, MASS.
"I wanted a share in this war beyond buying war bonds and
stamps that some seemed to feel was enough. My work as a libra-
rian in civil life has helped me here in the classification and file sec-
tion. In my own way I'm helping to get it over and establish peace.
I'm going to stay in for the finish."
BESSIE SIEGEL, INDIANA HARBOR, INDIANA
"My brother is in the Air Corps and my sister is a WAVE. I felt
like a slacker in a nice-paying cashier-bookkeeper job. I joined the
WAAC to maintain my own self-respect and to help get this over
so the family can be together again. I'm working in the classified
files in the Base Adjutant's office. It's great!"
KATHRYN JACK, LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA
"I worked for a defense plant that was vital to the war effort.
They displayed the Navy E, but that wasn't enough. As file super-
visor here in the Adjutant's office, I'm going to be able to release a
man for active duty. That's more valuable to me than remaining in
a well-paid job that someone else can fill. I'm going to see it through
to the end."
SYLVIA STONE, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
"I was a dressmaker. I couldn't see that the work I was doing
was of any value to the war effort. With two brothers and a nephew
really in the center of things, I wanted to do my part as well. Here,
in the Message Center, I feel that I'm accomplishing the thing 1'
joined for-releasing a man who can carry a gun."

Page Six THE ECHOES July 2, 1945


By S/Sgt. Eve Simmons
The WAACs favorite soldier is
Ed Kolikof, driver of the WAAC
Hack. Pvt. Kolikof expects to be
discharged from the army very
soon. He has a son serving over-
seas. Pvt. Kolikof is, perhaps, the
only soldier at Drew Field who
can call each WAAC by name .
and does. Every WAAC in the
756th will miss Pvt. Kolikof when
he leaves for his home at Brigh-
ton, Mass.
Speaking of drivers, wonder
what one of the WAACs will do
with her spare time now that her
particular driver is homeward
bound for a furlough. How about
it, Mabel?
We're told that male readers
of The Echoes read this column
first at least one soldier read
it last week before frantically
phoning one brunette WAAC to
learn if she was embarrassed by
one of the squibs. She wasn't. He
was! She is still in the market
for a bell to wear about her neck!
From Curacao, Dutch Nether-
lands, comes a suggestion that we
all read a very good article about
the WAAC in the May issue of
Readers Digest. Everything we
do is, apparently, of keen interest
to the soldiers who have seen but
a few WAAC officers assigned at
that base. From Honolulu came
two pages of a magazine telling
the story of the WAAC at Day-
tona Beach. Some of the faces
are familiar. The article, written
by Octacus Roy Cohen. is accom-
panied by beautiful color photog-
raphy by Collier's Bob Leavitt.
Sorry, the date is missing.
Rocky Point was broken out
with a musical rash as the WAACs
prepared for Thursday's enter-
tainment. Shower curtains vibrat-
ed as the songsters practised their
numbers. The less musically in-
clined are drawing deep breaths
of relief that that's over for a
while.
It's lucky you're an American
WAAC if you place Xs on your
letters to the BF (meaning you
know what). British censors cut
them out for fear Nazis may use
the kiss code for their own pur-
poses. Shy GIs will have to say
it in so many letter words now
if your letters come from Eng-
land.
-------------
Shows To Be
Presented in Bandshell
During Summer Months
The shows in Rec. Hall No. 1
become increasingly popular. This
is evidenced by the large attend-
ance at them, and also by the
bitter disappointment of the men
when a show is cancelled occa-
sionally.
As some know, the intention of
the Spec. Service Office is to pre-
sent a show every night of the
week in this building. The few
dark nights have been the result
of last minute concellations that
came too late for adequate sub-
stitutes.
This office, of course, does all
that is possible to entertain the
soldiers. Drew soldier audiences
have proved themselves to be
the most appreciative that any
performer can have.
The last time that a show was
presented out-of-doors, it was on
wooden, dimly lit stage. Shows
will-be given out-of-doors again
in July, in the bandshell. Recrea-
tion Buildng No. 1 will remain
open all summer, however, be-
cause" whenever it rains, the
shows will be moved from the
Bandshell to this building.
"Honey, I'm going to kiss you
to death."
"Go no further. I'm in Seventh
Heaven now."

E VERY woman in the new Marine
Corps Women's Reserve releases a
trained Marine for combat duty. But be-
fore they do that, they must, themselves,
undergo training so rigorous that regular
rest periods are allowed them. That's
when the call goes up for ice-cold
Coca-Cola .. for the pause that
refreshes. ..

Ice-cold Coca-Cola does more than
just quench thirst. It brings a pleas-
ant after-sense of refreshment. You feel it and
welcome it. Made with a finished art, Coca-Cola
has a taste all its own. Delicious! Satisfying!
There's an extra something of goodness about
it. You know from experience that the only
thing like Coca-Cola is Coca-Cola, itself.


A couple of Cokes! That's the way to make a friendly moment
[refreshment time.


It's natural for popular names to acquire
' friendly abbreviations. That's why you hear
Coca-Cola called Coke. Both mean the same
thing ."coming from a single source, and
S well known to the community". The best is always the better ukV /

Staging Area "Open
Sesame" For WAAC
(Continued from Page 1)
matter that yesterday you griped
because they didn't fit. Now the
dreases are in the proper places
S. you worked late last night
in the-laundry, waiting your turn
on the' ironing boards to make
sure. Your shoes gleam like a
new dollar. Your shoulders go
back, eyes front, and you are
proud at "parade rest."
As the first platoon swings
into the line of march, you watch
the ripple of skirts and you are
determined you will oblique on
those turns at the right moment.
It is a matter of extreme import-
ance that you cover down exactly
and that your head snaps simul-
taneously with those of the girls
next to you when "eyes right" is
given. Once past the reviewing
stand, you draw a deep breath of
satisfaction because it is almost
over and your company has ac-
quitted itself beautifully- Tears
stp~ your eyes when your C.O.
c6 endS you before dismissal.
It' .. akes no difference if you
were good-looking out there or
hot; if she says so, you must
have been. Right then you decide
that next time you'll break a leg
if you have to, but you'll look
'even better. It is your first reali-
zati.:n .of company coordination
SIt is wonderful!
SLooking ahead during your ba-
sic training, it seems a long time.
The days are endless until you
can fall into your bunk, taking
care not to mess the blankets too
much so you can't make the bunk
in jig time in the morning. Then
suddenly, it is over and you are
marching in your last, formation
as -a basic. You are waiting im-
patiently for the assignment
memnoirandum that Will tell you
'where and what-'kind of work
you will do. Now you are a part
of the Army and ready for the
'job you joined up to do. You are
ready for a place in the training
center or for that magical place,
"the Staging Area," and THE
FIELD.
In the beginning, the majority
of WAACs were assigned to
training centers. They learned to
replace the male cadre who had
trained the first WAACS. Lessons
taught in basic days, half-learned
because of the constant physical
fatigue, become clarifed with ac-
tual contact. Service records,
requisitions, pay rolls, reports of
change mean something instead
of a hazy impression gathered
through a mental daze. The
WAAC marvels that the hun-
d!re':i of papers she must handle
:suddenly make sen.e, and she
,has pride in herself that she does
.recognize them and knows what
Jto do with them now they. are her
responsibility. She is a WAAC, a
member of the armed forces, and
is doing her part.
With actual experience in the
training center, she is ready for
THE FIELD. Overnight she is
saying goodbye to envious friends
She is in the Staging Area to be
processed, to be examined physi-
cally, to have her service record
and allied papers completed.
Then she is piling into a truck,
on her way to the new station
land the new job. Her trip may be
repeated several times, but there
is always the thrill of that first
adventure into the field the
first actual replacement of a
fighting man instead of merely
filling in to train other WAACs
'-n aining center. It is then
'.i )e "Staging Area" becomes
"'Op-.Y Sesame" to fulfillment of
our part in the fight 'for victory.

The fun the men in communi-

The quick results from com-

The office is sure feeling the
effects of "Global War." The fol-
lowing officers and enlisted men
have departed to "Where do we
go from here" places.
Lieutenants:
James M. Crofwell who came
here from Sunny California, but
did not stay here long enough to
get acquainted.
Arthur F. Evans, who had the
distinction of working in the same
office first as an enlisted man
and later as an officer.
Enlisted men: Cpls.
Samuel J. Burrow, Jr., who was
better known to his many friends
as "Sam." His good nature as
well as that North Carolina
"drawl" will be hard to match.
William A. Reed, who also
came from California. Though he
seemed serious in speech and
action, he was a very nice fellow.
Pfc. Nicholas R- Duffy was no
newcomer to Drew Field, having
been stationed here ten mnoths.
He was never seen without a
smile on his face.
Lots of luck, boys.
Meanwhile, introducing t wo
new faces in this office:
Pvt. L. J. Zuiker, from the

ANY FRONT, Today-This is the tail
of a bomber-the kind that is turning
broad daylight into twilight for the Axis.
The history-making details are in your
newspaper nearly every day.
One of the reasons why our planes can
successfully attack the most heavily
fortified areas in the world in daylight
is because they can go "upstairs." They
can operate thousands of feet above the
range of the best Axis anti-aircraft fire-
where the cold reaches 60 below zero
and the air is so thin that ordinary
engines lose four-fifths of their power.
But American planes can reach these
heights and maneuver and fight there
because they are equipped with General
Ele.itric turbo-superchargers.
The turb:o-superchsrger is a ire-
eating machine that takes i:t pov. er
f:rm the red-hot exhaust, and uses that
poc.'er to cram fresh air do:v.n a big
engine's v.indpipe Last enough to give it
"full military po.'.er" at alrnmst any
altitude. Because' one part must operate
in an arctic 6,)-bel:''.-: ero, v. while the
other end spins at a blist-rring 1500
degrees, and bt'ecaue the r,.tatirn pa-rts
have to travel t'el'e times as 35 iL as


." l o
^


the plane's engine-the turbo-super-
charger is one of the toughest of all
machines to design and build.
General Electric designed and built
the first turbo-supercharger for a plane
in 1918 and in the intervening 25 years
has been working continually with
engineers of the Army Air Forces and
plane manufacturers to perfect it.
When the demand came for more
high-flying planes, G.E. greatly in-
creased its facilities to manufacture
turbo-superchargers and turned over
its designs and know-how to other
manufacturers chosen by the Army.
Development of the turbo-supercharger
is another example of the engineering
and research that are today developing
better war weapons and will tomorrow
provide products for better living in
the peacetime world to follow. General
Electric Company, Schenectady, N. Y.
31,256 G-E empblees are no serving in the
armed for.es. G-E employees at home are
b-yiug more than s1,0o0,000 worth of War
Bonds a week.





THINGS TO REMEMBER:
If it's an American-built high-altitude bomber or fighter, it's turbo-supercharged.
The turbo-supercharger is an outstanding example of the co-operation of American industry
and the armed forces, each working in its own sphere.
