VOL 1 NO. 25 Publi she d Every Dre w Fie ld, Tampa, Florida Friday, August 21, 1942 John Garfield, I George Tobias Star In USO Show at Drew l Col. Asp At Throttle former Base Sergeant Major, is now lii r. Bodo-Warrant officer. Mr. Bodo has been signing payOf Drew's First Train rolls in the army for the past 2 3 years. He participated in that grand performance called "World War I," and saw 23 months of active service in France. Having served in the Air Corps since its inception as the Aviation Section 9f the Signal Corps, Mr. Bodo is temporarily assigned to the 314th Hq. Squadron. Mr. Bodo has earned his pro motion by hard work, loyalty, efficiently performing his duties. He has proven that it pays to deliver the goods. We can all profit by his fine example. He is well liked by his fellow soldiers and held in high esteem by his superiors. from Salem, Ohio, Mr. J3odo answered President Wilson's : .call for volunteers in August, 19 .17. Lots of luck, Sergeant-excuse me, Mr. Bodo is the name!

In broadening the recreational program for Drew Field soldiers, the Base Special Services office (at has set up a hobby shop. It is supervised lby Chaplain Carl W. Hewlett. A 12-page pictorial story of life at Drew Field will appear in the magazine supplement of The St. Petersburg Times on Sunday, August 30 The Drew Field public relations staff co-Tuesday night brought the first successful USO show to Drew Field. "All in Fun" was definitely a hit. And as though the show itself wasn't enough, John Garfield and George Tobias appeared as guests. An act burlesquing the soldiers real.ly brought down the house; only two other acts surpassed it in applause -the torch sftlger and the girl tap-dancer (naturally). The show was sponsored by Captain Delano of the Special Services office and introduced by Corporal 0 Z. Whitehead. Playing in front of Theater No. 1, the show was witnessed by 4,00{); men. Every available seat was taken and before the show started it was "Standing Room Only." The soldiers agreed to a man that vaudeville was here to stay. John Garfield's recitation of Gene Fowler's dramatic soliloquy, "The Javis Bay Goes Down," moved the soldiers deeply. High light c;>f his appearance was a story about his daughter, aged four. She recently queried Papa Garfield: "Are,you a movie actor?" Papa G. naturally replied, "Yes," whereupon she inquired, "Are you a famous movie actor?" Again, yes. "Then maybe you can get Errol Flynn's autograph for me." Geo 'rge Tobias in his best Brooklynese related miscellaneous anecdotes concerning his travefs while making movies. When a soldie r asked him to do a scene from "Sergeant York," he replied in exasperation, "How can you expect me to remember any lines from that movie when I don't even know my lines in "Air Force?" A soldier's review of the Tuesday USO show might rea d, "'All in Fun' was r eal fun." Drew Soldier Buys $500 Bond, Opens Up Second Front Corporal Julian 0. Langford, of the Base Inspector's Office, purchased a $500 war bond on August 18, calling it the opening of his second front. I "Since Uncle Sam is in the process of helping to open a second front in Europe," he says, "I would like to contribute what I can to help equip that front by buying bonds with what money I have: In doing that, I not only help Uncle Sam to buy guns! tanks and planes. I also help myself by getting my money back with interest. "After the war is over, I will have a stake to start back in business or build a home. If nothing else, I certainly w.on't be broke as a lot of soldiers were at the end of the las t war. As soon as I can, I would like to open up a third front. After awhile we ought to have those Germans and Japs be hind the eight ball." Corporal Langford has set an example for other Drew Field men to shoot at! If he can invest in a Equipped wit:h. a wood lathe, band saw, circular saw, jigsaw, sander, and drill press-all of which are motor driven-the hobby shop offers Drew men an excellent opportunity to dabble during their off-hours in the jntricacies of practically all the handicrafts kx, 10wn to man. operated with The Times in making the story possible.

Asp, Drew Commandant. For more than a year Colonel Asp has advocated a "siding" at Drew Until now, men and material have come into the Field by truck. The new railroad spur will carry troops, supplies, and equipment to the center. of the Field-thus conserving tires and gasoline. Involving more than four miles of track, the siding connects with the main line of the Seaboard Air Line Railway. The. time for construction neat\ a record. Approval being qbtained July 7, Major A C. Reado, Area Engmeer, started plans immediately and expedited construction. All materials for the construction and tremendous expansion of the new air base will be handled by these railroad tracks. The volume of traffic is expected to pay for the cost of the railroad in a limited time. Wednesday' s ceremony marked another chapter in the life of Col. Melvin Asp and the history of Drew Field. Colonel Asp's name has been closely connected with Drew Field since he helped dedicate it as a city airport thirteen years ago. As an Army Air Corps flyer, Colonel Asp landed at Drew Field many times. In 1940, he was transferred from Langley Field, Va., to Tampa. In May, 1941, Colonel Asp was named commanding officer ot Drew Field, shortly after it bad been designated as an A7-my Air Base. Later, in August, the new commanding officer was i:naster of ceremonies at the concrete pouring ceremony for the new runways. It was at this August ce'l'emony that Colonel Asp remarked, "This is a momentous occasion for both myself and Drew Field. Having flown in and out of Drew Field since its birth over 13 years ago I have seen nearly all of its phases and changes.
