''Necktiesless" Order Inspires Writing of Drew Field Parable WHERE, OH, WHERE ARE MISSING TOOLS? THE SHOW IS ON; MOVIE THEATRE OPENS TONIGHT An important addition to the Base recreational facilities, long awaited by soldier flicker fans, is now an accomplished fact. From now on, thanks to the tireless efforts of Lt. R H R. Risley, Base Theatre Officer, and his staff, Drew Field soldiers will be able to enjoy the best of cinematic fare without journeying into town. Lt. Risley has announced that the doors of Theatre No. 1 will open for the first time tonight, July 17, showing on its s<;:reen the feature film, "Lost In the Pacific." The theatre will present two shows nightly, the first at 6 p. m. and the' second at 8 p .m. On afternoons a matinee will be added to the regular showings. On Saturday the theatre is featuring "Private Buckaroo." First Wedding in Lower Chapel Led By Chaplain Hewlett Chaplain Carl yY. Hewlett, 553rd R egiment Chaplain, was -all -smiles on guessed it.

And the men went away, rejoic ing, to spread the word to the fur therest reaches of Drew Field.

Obstacle Course Taken In Stride ,By .Drew Men During the week the men of Drew Field have given their obstacle course a terrific beating Groups and m e n of a ll sizes have tested their .skill and endurance on the course Lt. M. L McBride, Base P h ysical Training Officer, has been supplying the various groups with the necessary instruction on how to u se the course. After completing the school of instruction, and after personally going through the course, the m e n realiz e that t h e various obstacle s certainly test their streng th, endurance, bal ance, skill, and agility. Three of the most interesting and chall e nging obstacles on the course are the parallel bars, the rop e climb, and the high wall. There has been a great deal of spirited competition between the And he lamented at great length, but. his comrades paid him little heed ; for their hearts were full.

Friday, July 17, 1942' MANY SOLDIERS WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE THIS FALL Since all but four or five states permit absentee voting both within ,and without the borders of the United States, most Drew Field sol diers should be able to record their choices in the forthcoming elecc tions if. they can overcome the va rious handicaps imposed by the length of time it takes for a ballot to go from their state to the field and then back again. In a recent summary of voting conditions, The Army Times points out that absentee laws (/.re steadily becoming more uniform, although wide divergencies still exist. Some states do not specify how voting may be done, have legislated .special provisions for voting, while others require ballots to be collect-ed on the spot. / Massachusetts and No 'rth Dakota have laws requiring that" ballots be mailed to those outside the state on military duty. Florida, Ken tucky, Louisiana and New Mexico have not approved provisions for absentee balloting, and there is some disagreement as to whether or not Indiana's law permits mem bers of the armed forces not sta tioned on federal soil to vote. Mis Sissippi and South Carolina have recently adopted absentee voting statutes while Louisiana adopted a constitutional amendment in 1936 providing for absentee voting by mail. Service men are allowed to vote under ordinary absentee privileges in these states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, G e or g i a Idaho, Michigan, Minnesota, Okla homa, Oregon, Rhode Island, Ten nessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Vir ginia, Washington, West. Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. States in which specific provision is made for voting by mail are Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Mis sissippi, Missouri, Montana, Neb raska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina. States which will attempt to collect ballots on the spot are Arkansas, Delawa re, Illinois l{{ansas, Maine Nevada and South Dakota. New Hampshire permits absentee voting only for presidential candidates. A t the annua l governor's confer enc e at Asheville, N C., recently, Undersecretary of War Robert P. Patterson promised that. the army would do everything in its power to assist voting in fall elections by soldiers who would ordinarily vote at home. He said that through the cooperation of the secretaries of state of the various states, lists would be supplied to local election boards which will send ballots to the troops. Meanwhile soldiers are being in formed they can obtain all voting information by writing to the secre taries of .state of their respective states. AN ARMY GRIEF SPEAJ\:S Army Chief o f Ordtl ance, G e n. Campbell stated in a speech at Salisbury, N. C.: "The so -call e d 'New German 88 MM gun' is about as secret as a Daisy water pistol. It has b ee n known to us and our Allies for at least 10 years. W e outmatc h this gun with several of our fi eld and antitank guns."
