It does seem strange, nonetheless, to find buried in obscurity a military band that l1as so many fine potentialities-with accomplished bandleader Warrant Officer Lester Baker at the head of a capable aggregation of musi cions which includes Bud :tr:stes, Leo L.uukkonen, Mojmir Sedlac, John Susihinski arid others.

As a result of his excellent soldiering and leadership, Bill was soon made private. first class. Not long after that, he was promoted to CQrporal. He performed his duties so well that he was soon made a sergeant. His congenial nature, his friendliness and genuine interest hi his fellow soldiers, whether private or non-com, made him one of the best liked and. most popu lar !!oldiers of this organization. His rapid promotions never went to his head. He remained the same. Bill, alway s smiling, always eager to l end a helping hand, and make the going easi.olr for those' about him. Well, several weeks ago, Bill was transferred out of this comI},any, a _nd was soon on his way ove r there. For obvious reasons, ;rno information a s to where he is, what he's doing and the like can b'e divulged. But one thing is certain. Ire is quite capable of taking care of wherever he may be, whatever he may be doing. Ire will be equal to any situation th'at may arise. His friends, and he has them by the score, miss him keenly, but find solace in the well founded beljef that eventually he will come marching triumphantly home, intact and with an enviable recor d of outstanding service that will never b e forgotten by the folks of Brooklyn and his friends All his buddies here and elsewhere join in wishing him Godspeed and a safe and quick r eturn home.

Frida.Y. :'r ptemh e r 25, 1942 What's In A Name? Drew Field Roster Answers Questions By CPL. LEONARD G RUBIN. It is obvious, after scanning the rosters of officers and enliste d men at Drew Field, that this is a .war of all peoples, races and r e li gions against barbaric enemies. Though most of the following per sons are, of course, not r elated to the famous men whose names they bear, it is an indication of the peoples, races and religions repre sente d by the men on this post. Below are a few of the many in teresting names which appear on tlie rolls of Drew Field: For Presidents there are Wash ington, Lincoln, Adams, Monroe, Madison, Jackson, Harrison, Polk, Taylor, Johnson, Arthur, Buchan an, Cleveland, Taft, Harding and Hoover. In addition to these are the folJ.Qwing famous public figures: inklin, Hamilton, Hull, Han :k, Hughes, Byrne, Black, Stone, Reid, Murphy, Knox, Per kins and Donald Nelson. Being in the Army may interest you in Generals: we have Robert E. Lee, Pershing, Grant, Sheridan, Sherman, Houston, MacArthur, Doolittle, Marshall and Billy .Mitchell. For inventors and indtistriaists our roster discloses the following: Henry Ford for autos, McCormick for harvesters, DeForest for ra dio, Fulton for the steamboat, Wright for the airplane, Sperry for the pombsight, and DuPont for chemicals. For contrast we have a Crosby for "Bing" and. a Dean for "Dizzy." Other famous names include authors and statesmen, Gicero, Chamberlain, Churchill, Eugene O'Neill, Conrad, Locke, Ludwig, Scott, Paine, Dumas, 'stephenson, Newton and Robert Owen. Here are some "Believe It or Nots": We have.an East, West. South and North! We have a Metro, a Gould, a Wynn, a Mayer, making MetroGoldwyn-Mayer! We have 132 Smiths and a Doe! Appropriate for the Air Forces, we find a Props! Finally, with no offense meant, we ask il' you would like to be a first sergeant calling THIS rQll on a dismal. dark morning: Przyrylowski, Stratigopolos, Czar obski, Czuprynski, Worontoff, Ig nacio Chavarria, Alphonse Dlugo sielski, Dom browiak, Dominguez, Vanlandingham, Zitzelberger; Zu bizareta, Cosme Espanoza, Pat rzyk, Olesiewicz, Nosuchinsky and Novakovitc]l!!! HABIT On to the grinder marched the B.C. He gave a look at the men, rubbed his glasses and had an other look. "Hang it all!" he barked to the lieutenant.
