VOL. 1 No. 20 "The Battle of Midway," an 1800-foot film of the great battle in the Pacific, will be shown at Drew Field Theaters 1 and 2, Octo b e r 7 and 8, in connection with the regularly schedul e d program. Filmed under fire, the movie is the actual photographic record made by the Navy Department and tells the story of this great b .attle much more vividly than the reports given out by th e newspapers and the radio. It depicts not only the activities of the Navy, but aJso the Army and the Marines, all cooperating toward the final victory. Arrangements have been concluded between the Navy Department and the War Activities Committee of the motion picture industry for the distribution of "The Battle of i\Iidway" to all theaters in the United States. One Meets the Most Interesting People By CPL. LEONARD G. RUBI:\' The civilians in this part of the country are most obliging and give soldiers rides whenever they are going their way. Incidentally, you fellows who accept rides-remember to be polite and courteous and be careful what you discuss in or d e r that information that should not be disclosed is kept within the army family. Here are some of the interest-. ing people who have given me rides:-A member of the Brftish Con sulate service, whom I wish many of you could have met in order that many misconceptions about our English allies be righted. An expert on reptiles and snakes who explained that while there are dangerous snakes most peopl e would do well to know more about them and what to do w .hen confronted with the poisonous variety. A civilian defense p lane spotter, who gives quite -a few of his hours each week, watching from his tower station and reporting all planes that pass within three miles. A plain clothes policeman with a two-way communication system in his car. He told me that soldiers don't give police much trouble, but that it would be a good idea if those who liked liquid refreshment consumed only as much as they can handle. A flying officer's charming wife, who made me realize that in these times many are the unsung heroes and heroines. This young lady realized full well her responsibility for her .husband's moral e and has learned to hide the disappointments and fears t'hat naturally arise from her ,husband's occupation. A Tampa matron who had as a pest an 11-year-old child, the Fl.ughter of friends in the north. ..laving no children of her own, she told me w .hat a "problem a child t'hat age can be." A member of the United States Department .of Agriculture, Bureau of Plant Quarantine and Entomology. He explained that as Tampa is a port all plants which are imported must be inspected in order that no dangerous insec-ts be imported into this country. An old Cracker" who was an expert fishennan. ''It looks as if this is the spot for you fellows who lil{e to fis h. First, however, check on the season and habits of the fish you are going after to make sure that :the time and place is right for the fish that you are going after.". In addition to t'hese mentioned above there were salesmen, insurance men and northern refugees. All in all, you can say with assu rance-"One meets the most interesting people." "High Flighf' Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of Eartl1 And danced the skies on laughtersilver wings; Sunward I've climbe d, and joined the tumbling mirth Or sun-split clouds -and done a hundred th[ngs You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence; hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting winds J along, and flung My eager craft through ?ootless halls of air. /LlfOT.

Gallons of printers' ink have spilled over miles of type discussing the morale of the American soldier. It has been admired, praised, fretted over' criticized and cheered, but never. have we seen it defined. A lot of us .have often wondered about this morale of ours that is so fine. so poor and so much the subject of ever one's concern. We cannot define it, but we would like to make an attempt. at w hat we think the word refers to. Morale is a soldier strutting down the avenue with his chest out, his chin up .and that "! can lick the world" glint in his eye. It is his absolute confidence in the ability of the American forces to clean up the whole mess as soon as he can get there. It is his readiness to fight any marine or sailor who claims their outfits are better than his, and his even greater readiness to fight anyon03 who claims that any other marines or sailors are better than ours. It is his grumbling abeut mop ping the flo'or, shining his shoes and straightening things up, yet his indignation at even the s 'ug-1 gestion that his tent is not the neatest one in the squadron. It is the proud feeling of smartness he experiences as he gives a military salti.te to an officer on the streets in town. It is his uncontrollable rage as he sees newsreel shots or reads newspaper reports of American defeats or trage.dies due to "superior numbers of enemy forces." Finally, it is his unshakable opinion that h e is the best soldier in the finest squadron in the highest branch of the service in the greatest country in the world. -Richard Dann, Private, A. C., Brockley Field, Ala. NEW COMMANDANT AT PLANT FIELD Lt. Col. Julian M. Andrus, the officers and enlisted men of the 50 1st SA WR, welcome Col. Willard R Matheny as the newly assigned regimental commander and commandant of Plant Field. Colonel Matheny is from Chicago, Ill., and in civilian life was an e lectrical engineer and lawyer. In the last 'ear, the colonel was a lieutenant in an Engineer Corps and then executive officer in the Signal Corps at Bordeaux, France. Prior to his assignment to this regiment, h e was the assistant executive officer at Ft. Monmouth. His hobby-motor boats 2nd. Lt. Chester F. Thomas is the newly appointed Special Serv ice Officer. Lieutenant Thomas was a baseball player and is an all-round athlete. His pleasing personality and interest in sports should gain the respect and co -operation of the men of t11e regiment.

I hear the M.P.s have orders to stop petting on the field. How long have the M P s been petting on the field? When Pvt. NEESON was asked if he had changed his linen, he replied it wasn't worn out yet. Sgt. FREEMAN says when a pair of deaf mutes are out joy-riding the young man is certainly in tough luck. He's got to keep one hand on the wheel and talk with the other. Sgt. SURRAUT says the modern girl Is weak in the nays. Pfc.

SMITH told his girl friend he would like her for his wife, she replied, what would your wife do with me? Pfc. McLAUGHLIN says a woman Is like a player piano, you can't play them without a roll. I asked Sgt. BURT who was that peach he was with, and he says she was a fruit salad acted sour as a lemon, slippery a banana, and when he ignored her she hit .him in the eye like a grapefruit. Cpl. DEVINE thinks you are master of the woman you don't desire and a slave of the one you do. Pvt. LTCKMAN says his idea of a soft job is that of the detective who was hired to trail a hula dancer and instructed to watch every move she made. Pvt. SENYKO says he never took a drink in his life. No doubt he is right-he paid for every one of r.hem. The Squadron made a very good showing on the range with the Thompson machine guns.
