He WAS such a nice guy -
everybody loved him; they-dub-
bed him (affectionately, of
course) "HECTOR" from the first
day he joined our happy group.
In no time at all, Hector's pian-
isms won him a host of friends
at the Officers' and the Service
Men's Club Dances. His success
with the 69er's was complete; he
even had to buy himself a pair
of sun glasses to dodge the auto-
graph hounds... but, at the peak
of his success, he decided to in-
vade newer and loftier fields.
Having already mastered the in-
tricacies of the glockenspiel, the
matter of qualifying for the new
course Which he had mapped out
for himself was a relatively sim-
ple matter for Hector. He passed
all the ts (mental, as well as
physical), and now Hector is an
Aviation Cadet Candidate.

Since'the beginning of time,
out of door performances have
been held. Performances were
given in clearings, near native
villages, or in a shaded glen.
Centuries ago, huge edifices
were erected in the cultural cen-
ters of the world. The most not-
able ones being the Coliseum in
Rome and the Acropolis in
Athens. These, were the centers
of all social, political, religious,
and artistic life of the community.
They were also the sports arenas
and the place for all feats of
The Band Shell type of build-
ing in an outgrowth of the olden
times. These Band Shells have
been designed by specialists in
that particular medium of enter-
tainment. Of great importance is
the development of acoustics.
The Drew Field Band Shell,
located back of the main P.X.
and near the Enlisted Men's Serv-
ice Club, at 5th and "E" Streets,
has its first pre-view several
months ago, when the John Rin-
gling Circus people presented
some of their star acts there. Last
Friday evening, another pre-view
was given. A USO Camp Show
was -offered to an audience of
three thousand five hundred men
and .women. After the perform-
ance a dance was held on the
new Terazza floor, directly in
front of the stage. The music was
by the 69th AAF Dance Band.
Within a week, the shell will
be completed. The area around
the building will be landscaped
and planted to form a frame in
back of the stage. It is planned
to bring name bands, screen and
stage stars, USO Camp Shows,
and Units to the Shell. All radio
broadcasts, Soldier Shows and
the entertainments from Tampa,
now being presented by Lt. Geo.
Kluge and Sgt. 0. Z. Whitehead
at Recreation Building No. 1 will
be given at the Shell. During bad
weather these performances will
be held at Recreation Building

The Radio Division of the Spe-
cial Services Office, under Lt.
George W. Kluge, states that
Drew Field will shortly be equip-
ped to broadcast its programs
direct from the Band Shell. The
development is largely due to
Capt. Chester K. Delano, Base
Special Service Officer.
Formerly, only three of the
twelve weekly programs broad-
cast came direct from Drew Field.
The balance were broadcast from
WFLA in Tampa. Through the
generosity of WDAE, who lent
Drew Field the necessary profes-
sional equipment, a complete
small broadcasting station was
made available at Recreation
Building No. 1. The officers and
men express their thanks to Sta-
tion WDAE. The use of this
equipment has been an invaluable
aid to Drew Field's Radio Pro-
With the new Band Shell, and
the cooperation of WDAE and
WFLA, Drew Field will have two
complete broadcasting stations.
Station WFLA is lending a collec-
tion of transcriptions which can
be used not only in broadcasts
but also over the loud-speaker
system of the Field. According to
Capt. Delano, three advantages
are apparent in the new set-up.
First, all presentations are writ-
ten and produced by, and primar-
ily for, the soldiers, and the Band
Shell offers a spot where all can
see and take part; second, the
Band Shell is especially, con-
structed for the best acoustics
possible so that the full quality
of the performance can be trans-
mitted; and it makes Drew Field
independent with its own profes-
sional equipment purchased di-
rectly by the Army.
Marion Lohrig Brings
Fine Show to Drew
Marion Lohrig brought a parti-
cularly fine show to Recreation
Building No. 1 on Tuesday eve-
ning. It was opened by Mercedes
Thov who sang beautifully. This
distinguished artist sang a Span-
ins song, "Donde Esta el Amor,"
and "Kiss Me Again." She re-
ceived an ovation after her per-
Pianist Joel Travers played two
pieces of his own composition,
"The Florida Academy Military
March" and "Artist's Life;" which
the audience received with en-
thusiasm. Betty Ann Tillis sang
three popular numbers. Kiki Me-
nendez danced with grace and
effectiveness.-After she had taken
an encore, Mercedes Ybor ap-
peared again to sing Chili Bill
Bee, to close the show.
Soldier Prize Show
Is A Huge Succes
On Saturday, July 3, 1943, at
Rec. Hall No. 1, the Special Serv-
ices Office inaugurated the Sol-
dier Prize Show with cash prizes
for the leading competitors. The
house was well filled. First hon-
ors of four dollars each were
shared by Pvts. Henry Moriano,
a pleasing accordionist whose
repertoire ranges from Beethoven
to boogie-woogie, and clear-
voiced tenor Alexander Miller,
accompanied by Pvt. Herbert
Russell. The third prize of two
dollars was won by singer Pvt.
Charles Martin, who accompan-
ied himself on the piano.
Pvt. Ralph Stillman gave some
amusing imitations of animals,
varying from Broadway wolf to
newborn calf. Pvt. Peter Orrico

long formation of men in columns

All of a sudden, to their dismay,
down came one of those tropical
Florida rains. Pretty soon the
boys were soaked to the skin.
Gone were the sharp creases. The
zoot suit effect was all wet. So
they had to do an about-face and
return to the company, without
the glory they might have won
had it not rained.

Page Eight THE ECHOES July 9. 1943
Also Did Her Part
In World War I
If the present-day WAAC is
inclined to excuse her short-
comings or those of her outfit
"because we are so new an or-
ganization," she'd better pin her
ears back for a rebuke.
The original WAAC did her
part in World War I, and the cos-
tume she wore appeared no more
strange to the civilian seeing her
for the first time, than the ones
worn by the WAACs on the
streets of Tampa today. The hat
the fiist WAAC wore was similar
to the "campaign" hats worn by
the American -soldiers until a few
years ago and for which the well-
dressed soldier paid plenty out
of his own pocket 'v/hen he
"bucked" for inspection.
For some reason the American
Army. in the first World War,
failed to enlist feminine aid for
clerical and other assistance ih'at
women give in this war. How-
ever, a group of about 200 women
were Lttached to the S:gnal Corps
and served as telephone operatul s
with the A.E.F.
Even before the firs.. World
War. women were active in units-
very similar to the military or-
ganizations in which they serve
today. A school, much like our
basic training schools, was es-
lablishec as the National Service
School, Chevy Chase. Maryland.
At the end of May, 1916, more
than 1000 women had been
trained to do their bit should
their country need them.
Time was limited .and the
women were given setting up ex-
ercises, squad and company drill,
first aid of all types, and signal
work. The Red Cross had charge
'of one section of the camp and
the women were taught to make
bandages, sew, and administer
Because women wore so many
"gadgets" in those days, physical
training called for many adjust-
ments. They suffered from the
same blistered feet at sick call,
probably griped about the chow
as much as the present day
WAAC. Competition was as keen
among the companies as it is.
today. They learned all the tricks
of the trade from the regular sol-
diers -with whom they came in
contact they even went A.W.
O.L. and suffered courts'-martial
for certain offenses. Many re-
fused to use the showers (unheat-
ed) that were an innovation in
The first WAAC organization
rated an inspection by President
Wilson and other dignitaries.
Well, the present WAAC knows
what that meant standing for
hours at parade rest, waiting for
the presidential party to show up.
Many of the first WAACs are
mothers of the men and women
now in our uniform. They ended
they training Memorial Day, 1916.
Overseas they were stationed at
Milldam Barracks, England, in
1918. They, just as the 1943
WAACs are doing, replaced men
for active duty. They took over.
. :a-one of the principal jobs, the
food supply sergeant's .job and
issued food to thousands of men.
The 1943 WAAC does many
more types of wbrk than did the
WAAC of her mother's' era, but
they are alike in-that they were
volunteers in the service of their
country. Where the modern
WAAC is serving in England and
Africa, _her mother served in
France, Puerto Rico, Guam, the
Canal Zone and Hawaii. Ten
years from now, many of them
will stand side by. side as mem-

ON THE BALL
By Sgt. Raymond R. Simmons
The changes instituted in the
various organizations in the Camp
DeSota area are to be highly
commended. The most praise-
worthy is the laying of the foun-
dation of the combination theater
and chapel. Perhaps some of us
are a little mentally hazy regard-
ing the assets to be derived from
these acts, so I am passing my
opinion to you,. with the hope
that they will be accepted for
what they are worth.
Much of the unrest and con-
fl;ct;_ ftlha exist in this area are
:lih direct results of the limited
social and recreational facilities
available to the men, and the ar-
rant neglect of the personnel as
a whole, which may be partly
due to the numerical weaknesses
of the several organizations. On
numerous occasions the men as a
group commented on these fac-
tors and expressed a wish that
some interested party would in-
tercede in their behalf. Prior to
the activation of new companies
in this area, it was financially im-
practical to build a theater. Now
with enlisted personnel swelling
the rosters, not only is it finan-
cially practical, but a gesture
which will give a greater incen-
tive to enlisted men for staying
in camp during the evenings
without fear of boredom.
With parts of Tampa restricted
to military personnel, this new
area activity cqmes at an oppor-
tune moment. In- other areas on
the field .where the personnel is
large enough to warrant provi-
sions for large-scale recreational
facilities, delinquent reports are
virtually at a minimum. Hence,
with similar facilities being in-
troduced in this area, the hope
for less emotional outbursts and
minimized delinquencies are
looked forward to with no little
