In January he started his training to become an officer in the Army Air Corps. A recent communique lists Corporal Bladell as among the graduates at Foster Field, Sep tember 6. Major Ziska Promoted Major Clarence W. Ziska, Base Administrative Inspector, recently was elevated in rank from captain to his present position. In civ'ilian life, Major Ziska, who comes from Bedford, Ohio, was a construction superintendent in the local building trade circles. An office r iu the Ohio National Guard since 19 2 9, Major Ziska was called into service on Oct. 15, 1940. From that date until Jan., 19 4 2. he served as the regimental supply officer of the Il2th Engineering Regiment at Camp Shelby, Miss. In Jan., 1942, h e was trans ferred to Drew Field where h e has served as Base Administrative Inspector ever s inc e Drew soldiers show how to save automobile tires.

Allowances to Dependents Will Be Paid In September The War Department has announced that checks in payment of allowances to dependents of enlisted men of the Army, covering the first applications to be approved,. will go out shortly after September 1st. These checks will include all sums accrued up to that date in the individual cases covered. Thereafter payments will continue to be made shortly after the first of each month for sums accrued up to the end of the previous month on approved applications. Drew soldiers are right on the ball when it comes to conservation of rubber. Drivers of all army vehicles a:t Drew F:ield are instructed to avoid rubber waste resulting from excessive use of brakes, quick starts, sudden stops, taking curves too fast and bumping against curbs. They also check the air pressure in their tires every day, government records revealing that tires only 80 per cent inflated waste 30 per cent of their rubber. Vehicles not in use are jacked up and put on blocks to keep weight off idle tires. Dual tires are removed from trucks not loaded .heavily enough to need Inexpensive Gadget Replaces Very Costly Hydraulic J k them.

After the pieces are cut to the desired length, only a n hour or so is required to weld them together.

Quote: "Tonight we play a team that we have never met be fore-the 9th Fighter Nine, and we are looking forward to adding their scalps to our belt. So let' s have a good turnout, men, and see if this team will live up to their name: Fighter Nine." Un quote. Seems as though we did live up to our name. The outcome of the fray on the diamond was like .this: S'core-6 to 1, in our favor. So it's ha-ha-ha from us to them. Here' s a hearty welcome to Lt Jack J. Kooistra, who recently joined this organization. Lt Koo istra hails from up Michigan way, and he's the sort of person who wins hosts of friends wherever he goes. He's done just that in this company. As most Drew Field men lmow. especially those who live on the base, sidewalks are being pain ted _green 'Veil, Sgt. Ed Henderson, he of the mess, approaching the freshly painted walks for the first time, was dumfounded. "Where the heck have they moved the concrete sidewalks?" he asked himself. It was such a good job of camouflage that the sergeant thought the concrete walks .had actually been moved, and that green grass had grown in their place. I The othe r day the phone rang, as phones sometimes do and was answered by ye scribe. A feminine voice purred: "Is Pvt. Enrico Fostonosld there?" Upon being The Drew Interceptors made a clean sweep of all three games over the week-end in winning numbers 32, 33 and 34 for the current baseball season. Drew trounced Food Machinery of Lake land, 12-5, on Friday; Belleair Army nine, of Clearwater, 4-2, on Saturday, and U.S.P. P 5-4, on Sunday. Only one game was a West Coast league affair, that with the U.S.P.P. nine in which Drew won 5-4 to' move them up to second place in the league with a 3-2 standing. Drew staged a ninth-inning rally to come from behind and nip the Phosphoric nine with a two run rally for the ball game. Todd led off for the Interceptors b y walking, Klimczak singled and Bekeza walked to fill the bases. The ,hitting star of Friday's game, Second Baseman Riorden, slapped the_ first pitch for a long drive into right center to score the tying and winning runs. Peyton Epps went the route for the Interceptors in allowing the losers eight hits and no free passes, while .his mates were gar nering five blows off the deliv eries of Jackson. The Interceptors finally con quered the only team that has held a constant jinx over them all season. The Interceptors finally broke the jinx with Food Machinery nine of Lakeland by defeating them, 12-5, on Friday for the first time in the four games the two teams have played. Bronson held the h ard-hitting Food Machinery nine while the Interceptors were manufacturing 12 runs and the ball gam:e. Drew defeated the Belleair army nine, of 4-3, on Saturday in a hard-fought game. Fred Swindells hung up his 1 7t.. h win of the season in limiting the losers to six hits, while his mates were collecting the same amount off Wenzel. Second Baseman Riorden led the attack for the Interceptors with three singles in four tries, besides playing a sparkling game at the keystone sack.

Al\"'DREW PATERSON Opportunity is always knocking for the enlisted man in the Army. The other day the War Dept. came out with a list of technical training available to the enlisted man. Believe me, I don't think they missed a subject that won't benefit any man either while in the Army or on his return to civilian life. Here is your chance-stop in at the Orderly Room and we will be more than pleased to give you any help we can. -+c -+c -+c I believe we owe a vote of thanks to Sgt. Stephens and his Supply Room personnel for the service they have given most of us in obtaining our clothing shortages. Those natty, new-styled, open-at-the-neck shirts have most of the fully supplied older men envious, and they are just wondering how in the devil they, too, can be up-to-the-minute in style "just like the recruits." -+c -+c -+c Your scribe leaves on a furlough Tuesday and is leaving the c .hit-chat in the capable hands or Pfc.

"Genny" just finished a course in Fire Prevention, and it is like almost your life in your hands to lie:ht a match when he is around.

We are not the OJ;llY ones, either, for a certain officer walked up to her at E gypt Lake and said: "There are going to be a lot of soldiers here. You had better move on." She did, for she was merely bringing the Captain his swimming trunks. Pfc. Luthe r Curra n (the Funny Money Man) is displaying his reward for having his name published in the pape r today. He really believes in 'blowing his own horn, but h e can't keep up with Cpl. "Windy" Burleson. Cpl. Burleson has recently discovered the possibility of his being a brass band. Cpl. Goldberg is a supply man, but no one knew that h e knew medical supplies until last Thursday. He does, though, for h e took care of those in the ambulance while the rest of us walked. One can keep dry that way too. Furloughs being in season, the following men shined their shoes, packed their .bags and started for home: M/Sgt. Bromber, S/Sgt. Nelson, Sgt. Illingworth, Cpl.

As you have all noticed by now, the QMC has gone completely WAAC-y in their "zoot suits" (uniforms to you) with the "reep pleats," to say nothing of the "drape shapes." You know, when we first ordered uniforms, thfl girls took a couple of inches off their hair-dos so t hey would look well w.ith the uniforins, and now that they are .here, the girls are trying to take a couple of inches off their hips so that they can get into them. By the way, Corporal John F. Sysznski, about those band instruments you don't have, you certainly aren't keeping up with the news nowadays. Miss Page asks: "Haven't you heard about that nasty word, 'priorities'? It's putting a sour note in many a wouldbe army band now."
