VOL. l. NO. 6. Published Ecery Friday Drew Field, Tampa, Florida APRIL 10, 1942 I ATTENTION TO DETAILS GETS REAL RESULTS Col. Asp Swears In Captain's As Cadet GLENN MILLER In addition to the distinction Major F L. El>ersole, Jr., has gained while serving as Adjutant, Army Air Base, Drew Field, the Major enjoys another wortihwhile distinction-that of :being one of the F ield's best dressed officers. Distinction in both of these lines of endeavor, so we are told, is aJttained only close attention to details. Take Saturday morning, for instance when the officers of Drew Field were formed on the hanger apron for inspection by no less a personage than the Inspector General lhimself. Creases were no unusual. sight that moming. Quite a few of the off.icers could be seen casting last minute glances at their freshly laundered cotton-khaki, faces reflecting a measure of satisfaction over appearances for the inspection formation. However, when Major Ebersole appeared on the field, expressions on the countenances of many of the officers denoted =azement at Col. Melvin P. Asp, Commanding Officer at s wears in Walte r F.

The device, painted a lovely Easter egg yellow, may p lay a n important part in your life if and when the Kraufs or Japanzies pay us a caJll, so .J:>end an ear. The apparatus is a warning device for gas attack. The operation i s very simple. All you do if you're the nearest man to do it and you s mell gas, is take the long spike furnished and beat upon the metal flang lining with great gusto. You, of course, should have yom mask properly adjusted before you start beating, because tJh. e warn in g should continue until everyone is hep to what is going on. Then when yom tongue is hanging out you'll k no w you've done yom duty and the day is saved. ---Reep 'Em Flying---Ammonia gas, containing nitrogen, is u sed to harden and strengthen steel crankshafts for many airplane engines. WILL SALUTE DREW APR. 18 The salute to Drew Field by Glenn Miller and his orchestra has now been set for Saturday, April 18, according to an announcement from Special Sery ices Officer. The salute, originally scheduled for April 4th was cancelled by Miller as published in last week's edition of tJhe ECHOES. The letter addressed to Special Service Officer says in part, "Con ditions which forced cancellation of the last two programs have been cleared up. Sorry that we had to change the date of ;the salute to Drew Field !but notify the men at your commend of this special salute to your Field on Saturday, April 18, at whiclh time your most popular selection "I Don't Want To Walk Without You, Baby," will be played." Should the tune selected by men at Drew be chosen as the m:ost popular tune of the week by the general radio audience the Field will l>e presented with a combination radio 'and phonograph console by the Miller ordhestra. ---Reep 'E m Flyi.ng---Drew Field Soldier Flies to Charlotte Pv.t. Richard Lyford, Drew soldier and a Disney artist, was flown to .the Charlotte Air Base last Friday to plan murals for the officer 's club at the Field. Lyford, who will work with Cpl. John C&bore, MacDill Field artist, and other Disney men stationed at Drew, on the murals, returned to Drew Sunday. The mmals will be done in the Disney manner featuring 1Jhe ifan characters for which the cartJoon genius is noted. Flying elephants and dive bombing bugs will r be painted to resemble the la;test model planes in the Air C orps. The artist will present preliminary sketches to Colon e l c. w. Howard, Chie f of Staff, 3rd Air Force, under whose direction the work is being done this week. Lieutenant Colonel Gimbel Is Now Base Inspector BILTMORE CAFETERIA Men in Hq & Hq.
