Bell, but Lieutenant Bell. ,.:tall lean-limbed, genial, asce (i\!featured South Carolinian was a second lieutenant yesterday. Lt. Bell s commission culminates a career of l2-years' service as an enlisted man. Only 34 years old now, he entered the Army on No vember 21, 1929, at Columbia, S. C., after leaving his job in a tex tile mill in his home town of Ab beville S C. Since then he has soldiered for three years in the Hawaiian Islands, seven years at Barksdale Field, La. two years at MacDill Field (where he. was among the first men who s.et foot on it), and since February at Drew Field. Since March, 1930, he has work ed in Air Corps Supply and is thor oughly trained in this phase of air corps materiel. For that reason, in March of this year, h e w a s placed in charge of the Tech Sup ply department of the 327th Serv ice Squadron. He is I e a v i n g a smooth-functioning qepartment be hiVd him, the result of training and efficient handling of men. 14 Drew Non-Coms Take Exams For Warrant Officer P1tbli s h ed Every Friday Drew Fie ld Tampa, Florida DREW VICTORY SQUAD Here are the members of the Drew Field baseball team which has a great record of 26 games won and 12 lost for the sea son. of them straight and 17 out of the last 19.

Under the provisions of a recent Army regulation, enlisted men with not less than four months active service, may pursue college courses by correspondence while in the Army. The Army Institute, at Madison Wisconsin, offers 65 courses that will contribute to a soldier's military efficiency. Sgt. Wilber D. Somers, recently trans ferred to OCS from the 690th Signal A W, Frontier Co., was the first soldier to send in a complete lesson from Drew Field. This opportunity for academic endeavor is offered to soldiers un der two plans-(a) soldiers may take correspondence sources di rectly from the Army Institute with an enrollment fee of $2 for each course, (b) they may enroll in certain courses in any one of 80 cooperating colleges and the government will pay half of the tuition cost (not to exceed $20 for any one course). College credit is obtained upon completion of courses under the latter plan. Under both plans the soldier students must study in their leis ure time and the government will share the cost of text books. The approved courses ; numerous and varied, include everything from English literature t_o water works and sewage plant operation. Anyone intei'ested in ta_king ad vantage of these correspondence courses can obtain application blanks at the Special Service of_ fice in the Base Library.

MEMBER FLORIDA PRESS ASSOCIATION NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASSOCIATION 1942 503d MEDICS SHOTS and PHYSICS An occasional and very welcome visitor to the 503d Dispensary is Captain David F Stevenson, of the 687th Reporting Company special. He makes it a point to remember the medics and quite often surprises them by calling them by name. One of the most active of ficers on the post, Captain Steven son frequently may be seen at the head of a long, tired column re turning from one of those -hikes. He sets a brisk pace, too Pfc. A V. Armstrong and Pvt. 0. C. Crawford, Jr., were named just that at birth. Guess nobody ever thought enough of them to give them a front name. Pfc. Arm strong is from Alabama, and Pvt. Crawford is a Texan cowboy. Sunday afternoon the medics gave the 503d 1st Reporting Co. a thorough trouncing at softball, 5-2, with Pvt. Arthur Melchert knocking out two beautiful triples. Congratulations to Pfc. James W Hundley, Jr. who took himself a wife while on furlough at his home in Danville, Va The "Colonel," who is Staff Sergeant Barrie D Bryant's pet coach whip snake, is home again, after having run away numerous times. Last week Corporal Charles W. Wilson found him in the drain age ditch near the boxing arena just in time to rescue him from some soldiers who were "to kill him dead." SHI.RTS for the .Army Man!

OPEN TUESDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHTS 'J'ILL 9 :00 "Smart Mi}ita-ry Olothes" .,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.,,.,I HOT COPY 686th SPEC. REPT. CO. By A/Sgt. ARNO JUSTMAN Talking of men and the various things they will do to save trouble, we have a Pvt. here who bought an officer's shirt and was told to take the straps off the shoulders. Now he has enlisted in O.C.S. to save the trouble of removing said straps. Two mosquitoes flew into 1st Sgt. Angelletti' s room the other night while he was trying to sleep and this is what he overheard the first mosquito say: "Shall we eat him here or take him outside?"The second replied:: "No, we better eat him here. That other one outside might take him away from us." If at any time you approach a mob making a terrific noise, it will not be necessary for you to see who the fellow is. It will be Pvt. Wallister and that's for sure. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Those names have always suggested to me a dual personality, so it came as a great surprise when I found out that the very mild mannered, soft-spoken Pvt. Green is one bomb shell when he gets to town. I even heard he took a drink the other night. Tsk! Tsk! Sgt. Murphy, Moifhy to you, is another fellow who operates on the sly. To hear him talk you would think most of his time is spent at the U. S. 0. writing letters, but who should pick me up the other night but Moifhy and one v e r y charming personality. As the talk went along I mentioned the fact it sure would be nice to have din ner at a home. Of course I never had any intentions of staying with the happy couple and evidently they were of the same opinion, be cause I had dinner at a cafe You never know who your friends are, believe me.

Our company decided to have one of those swell parties with lots of fried chicken 'n all that goes with it. (Even. a keg or two of beer.) A group of girls from the Y. W. C. A were invited to be our guests at the Police firing range clubhouse and they sure must of made a hit, for the next morning all the fellows had a phone num ber to use for future reference. Well, as I was saying, that chick en was really good The fellows had a lot of fun taking the girls through the chow line. The only trouble was that when a cook saw a girl that looked nice, he'd just heap her plate with olives. Later I saw Sgt. Bernard engaged in a serious conversation, telling one lovely lass just h o w to prepare spaghetti and meat balls. Anything for a line as long as it isn't a mili tary secret. Then a bunch of the fellows from Drew Field combined to form an orchestra and we spent the rest of the evening on and around the dance floor. Sgt. Louis Massing ham (since appointed 1st Sgt. of this c ompany) took over the drum Phone Y'-3741 1512 7th Ave. $1.00 and $1.50 7 5c WATCH BAi\'DS --Army PEN and 3 95 PENCIJ.J SETS ----- St.Ietch ... ...... 4.95 Identification 2 95 BRACELETS -- Watch Repairing 20% Off To All :'3crvicc M e n AReal Help Now! freshen 11p, Soldier! Chew Wrigley's Spearmint Gum Yes, you've got to be in the armed forces to really appreciate how much a little stick of chewing gum can mean. Man, how it helps to chew gum when you're tense, tired or thirsty! Cools your mouth -moistens your throat-seems to give you a refreshing lift. Aids digestion, too. Enjoy chewing delidous Wrigley's Spear mint Gum during strenuous flights-after hard work-when you're off duty-at other times, too. It does things for you. ; W-175 and cymbal department and boy, how he can tickle a drum is really something. (Those drums earned him the price of many a meal be fore he enlisted in the service.) Lt. Cecil presented C o r p o r a I Dwight Bones with two loaves of Cuban bread, (a yard long style), and the gleam in Corporal Bones' eye made me shudder as to the fu ture of those loaves. Ya see, he likes to eat-especially bread. I'm sure that everyone present had a swell time and is wondering when we can do it again. tt PALMA CEIA a THEATRE !tlcDILL AVE. AT SAN CARLOS Open 3 P. M.

SERVICEMEN Alfredo Y Familia Fancy Groc'eries -Free Delivery 1601 N. HOWARD AVE. DIAL B 25-564 Gen. Tinker is the third Amer ican air general to die thus far in the war, but the first to be lost in action. Maj Gen Herbert Dargue, the first choice after Pearl Harbor for the Hawaii air command, was killed in December while flying to the west coast. Brig. Gen Harold H. George, who was with Gen. MacArthur in the Philippines, was killed in an air crash after reaching Australia These all were flying officers who flew. They thought of their jobs as being in the air, not behind a desk. Gen Tinker is not the only American air general who took risks with his men. Maj. Gen. Lewis H. Brereton of the bomber command in India has participated 'in raids on the Japs in Burma. Nothing could be better from the I standpoint of morale than that 1 generals go along with their men on hazardous missions. As Lieut. Gen. Delos C. Emmons, Hawaiian army commander, said; "General Tinker would not ask his subordi nates to undertake 1;isks he would not take." Subordinates will follow such anywhere and we have no doubt that when the squadrons the general commanded take off in future it will be with the in tention to "get one for Tinker."
