NO 23 P ubli s h e d Priday Dre w Fie ld Tampa, Flo rida Swing Sax Player Toots Melodies For Air Force Band Another musician of established reputation j o i n e d the swelling ranks of the Air Force Band last when Private Leo 0 Luuk, ( 24, of Quincy Mass., arriyed a./ Drew Field. The new musician has tooted his alto sax and clarinet from one end of the nation to another, sounding off in some of the nation's big-time bands. On the road he played with Eddie De Lange Mal H a 11 e t t Sonny Dunham and Tony Reynolds. Luukkonen started playing pro fessionally in dance bands while still in high school. Later he stu died at the New England Conserva tory of Music in Boston, and after several years of conservatory in struction he played in the Bean town metropolis with Jack Marsh ard, Ruby Newman, and Andy Ja cobson. He also played with Arthur Fiedler and Fabian Sevitzky in their symphony orchestras. In keeping with the policy of'1he War Department, Col. Melvin B. Asp, commanding officer of Drew Field, is givng Director Howard Hawks and his party of actors, technicians, and property men every consideration possible during their stay at Drew Field where many thrilling scenes of Warner Brothers' new picture, "Air Force," are being made. Here the Base Commander is shown with Director Hawks viewing the filming of a scene in the picture. The. effect must have been very satisfactory, judg ing from the facial expressions. He entered the Army on Dec. 22, 1941 at Mitchell Field, N Y where he played in the Air Force Band. Recently he transferred to Drew Field to rejoin his buddy, Bud Estes, the noted orchestra arI ranger and saxophonist who is now TWO SHORT PARAGRAPHS YANK TO BE SOLD THROUGH konen of his association with Estes PACK LOTS OF MEANING that he beams with pride when he I ---DREW FIELD POST EXCHANGE mentions his charter membership For the benefit of the small per. in Bud's.

May this serve as an open letter to proponents and ex ponents of t11e mustache at Drew Field. Two ECHOES reporters, having embarked on a discussion of multi-mustachioed soldiers seen around the field last week, / decided to research the subject thoroughly. They travelled far and wide, querying entities and non-entities alike, spending hours /in every library and institution of higher learning from the East Gate to the North Gate. Their extensive research even dwarfed the READERS DIGEST cigarette probe. With the aid of cartoonist Harry Lampert, the ECHOES re porters present their fin dings: (1) If you are growing a mustache just for the fun of it, keep it up. It's fun-ny. (2) If you are just saving time on your daily shave-leav ing the hirsute on the upper lip cuts time by at least 48 seconds. (3) If you are looking forward to scaring your motherin law when she visits Tampa-you've got the right idea, brother. (4) BUT, if you're trying to impress the girls around Drew Field, you're rea lly missing the boat, soldier!!! In the illustration above, Harry Lampert has drawn the most prevalent brands of soup-strain ers. When the reporters displayed the illustration while querying Drew Field's feminine population they got the following reaction: Mrs. Scott, secretary to Base Commander, with a hearty l a ugh: ''They all look so cute, but I like the one on the far right-it l ool l' So l e s must.ach e." Mrs. Linn, bookkeeper, sub-(iepot: "The one on the far right loo ks like my husband 's, Tech Sgt. Linn of the 3 14th. He shaved his off one morning and I didn't speak to him for two weeks. adopt the "who's afraid of the big, bad wolf" attitude in brush!'ls with members of the Military Police, we quote two paragraphs from Bul letin No. 195, Hq. Army Air Base, Drew Field: "1. Military Police have unlimit ed police jurisdiction over all per sons subject to military law, not only at posts, camps, and stations, but also when outside those limits. A military policeman on duty is en titled to the respect of all persons subjeCt to military law. "2. Resistance to the orders of a military policeman by any officer, warrant officer, non-commissioned officer, or enlisted man is a serious military offense which may be pun ishable by general court-martial." Further quoting: "All instruc tions which may from time to time be given by the Military Police will be obeyed promptly and courteous ly. YANK, t he Army newspaper published for soldiers overseas, will also be available to military personnel at Drew Field, and throughout the United States. Copies of this popular publication are available for Drew Field sol diers at Post Exchanges on the Field. The publication was original ly limited to overseas distribution. Designed for and written by en listed men for enlisted men, Yank is to be sold only to military per sonnel through Army exchanges or through direct by mail subscrip tions. Soldiers desiring to receive Yank direct by mail may mail their sub scriptions to "YANK, The Army newspaper, 205 E. 42nd St., New York City". The price for a six months subscription is 75 cents. In mailin g subscription in, particular atttention should be given to cor rect spelling of name and address. DREW FIELD'S LOW DEATH RATE EXCITES FAVORABLE COMMENT America's army is the healthiest in existence. Keeping step with CHQ authorities, Drew Field authorities are stressing the prevention of sickness among soldier personnel in a1;1 effort to maintain the high health standards. That these efforts bear fruit is evidenced by the fac t that the mortality rate for the first six months of 1942 at Drew Field i s one of the lo west in the ei ght states embraced in the Fourth Serv ic e Command. The number of men stationed at Drew Field during the first h alf of 1942 is, of course, a military secret, though it may safely be sa id that the nulfber runs into the thousands. During that period, only s ix deaths have occurred among Drew Field personnel, according to figures release d by the Base Surgeon's offi ce Tuesday. Those deaths are attribute d to the fol lowin g causes: Two died in airplane crashes, two 'from strangula tion (self inflicted ), one from drowning ( accidental), and one from causes undetermined. Compa red to the r a t e of deaths among civilians, Drew Friday, Augu s t 7, 1942 I Veteran of Major Battles Stars In Drew Bull Session Near the end of any month at Dre w Field, you'll find most of the soldiers sticking close to home in the evenings. And that is when Private George Henwood .Plays a starring role in all Army bull sessions. You see, it is "just before pay da y" and the boys are broke. I With the entertaainment for the 1 evening consisting of a little vol1 leyball and a good gabfest, old "Pops" Henwood is sought after for his tales of the battle of the Marne, Chateau Thierry and of the Belleau Woods. You can hardly name a major battle in World War I that Amer ican soldiers participated in, but what Henwood can give a first hand acc ount. The 42-year-old veteran has three wound s tripes, the Croix de Guerre, and a campaign ribbon with f ive silver stars to his credit. Hailing from New York City, Private Henwood enlisted in the U. Si Army before this country entered World War I which put him in the first shipment over seas. He served in the First Division and saw 27 months of service landing in Europe June 26 1917. After the Armistice was signed "Pops" remained overseas as sergeant in the army of occu pation Finally h e was shipped back to the Unite d States as a casualty and honorably dis charged Most regrettable part of World War I for the old war do g was the Battle of Verdun-"Dawgonnit," h e mus es, "I missed that one, they h a d m e in the hos pital." Private Henwood doesn't have much hope that they'll send him overseas. But h e figures he'll ge t another crack at the e nemy by handin g down to younger men the Al ice Phillips Capt.

We welcome back to our organ ization Lt. Levi S. Haugland as our Commanding Officer, and an officer who needs no introduction to the company. Lt. Haugland command ed the company several months ago but left us for another assignment. We're glad to have you back with us, Sir. . Our genial Topkick, 1st Sgt John G. Mahan, followed the popular trend of Drew Field soldiers last week and center-aisled it in Clear water. Threatening to be a close second to the Topkick is that Nash ville Paper Weight Champ, Cpl.

Is everybody in Nashville named Johnson and are they all the dashing Lotharios that these two are? With the advent of the Warner Bros. delegation to Drew Field, the spirits of the Battalion Postmaster, Pvt. Harry (Jerry Colona) John son rose to new and highe' r levels, especially when he found a few of his former Hollywood pals in the group. Colona says it was like a letter from home seeing some _of the old gang. If we could only get Johnson a mailman's hat an d a snood for his mustache to wear during business hours we are sure he'd be very contented. And speak :ing of mustaches, the newly ap :pointed Tech 4th Grade Moon_ Mul lins whacked his off.

All the boys are waiting to wring your neck for the deception, Johnnie, but to con gratulate you and to wish you and Margaret a long life of supreme happiness.
