Nothing in the Act relieves the soldier of actual payment of .debts or other obligations which he may have incurred before entering the. military service. Relief is ed only when the soldier' s ability to n1eet the. obligations are paired by bei'ng iii the Army. This relief is prindipally from all alties that would be imposed for non-payment of such obligations. Th e questions of the extent of the relief generally are left to the dis cretion of the courts of ju!ltice. When a ma:n in military service i s unable to appear. in .court in a case a gainst him, the Act provide!! for the court to supply an attor ney, and if necessary the court is allowed to stay the proceedings 90 days after :his release from ac tive service, so that he may ap pear.

Universal vaccination has vir tually eliminated smallpox. Rigid sanitary control and vaccin.ation has made typhoid fever almost non-existent in the Army. Inci dence of scarlet fever is now ex-tremely Thus far 1942 has experienced no true epidemics of infectious diseases i n -the Army. These nor mally account for a majority of all admissions to hospitals and con finements to quarter' s. While the health of the Army in training at home is better than in 19 41 nexertheless last year's Army health record was unusu ally good. This experience is the more remarkable considering the Army's rapid expansion.

To SGT. JOHN SUSZYNSKI From PFC. JOE REGIS Howdy John: Although I know you hate the idea of returning to spend a few more months with the boys at Drew Field, I know one lad who will be happy to have you back; that is I. I am enclosing an article that appeared in. last week's ECHOES entitled, "Lost, Strayed or Hidden Somewhere: One Air Force B and." You will note that it refers to your recent comments with the Base Quartermaster's office, regarding arrival of our instruments. Now that they have ar.rived, the question is asked, "What other alibi, then, can they offer?" Of course, the question pertains to our initial public appearance. You have answered that question more than once with the words, "lack of personnel," but somehow this needs further ex planation. You should .have stated. that the band is authorized 28 men for a fuil band. That is, if the proper presentation of a music score is to be given the full quota of men required. However, IF cer train key instruments should be present, the music could be rendered. Now, here is the answer to the' question asked: The band does not have the musicians at the present time to fill all these key positions. It. might also nave been a good idea, John, to add that musicians to fill some of these positions happen to be on the field, but, due to regulations or some other reason, cannot be transferred from their outfits to help solve Warrant Officer Baker's problem and help out. the morale of the field by rendering concerts for the personnel. Wefi, John, I hope that this will clear up that matter. However, 'it looks like an almost impossible task to secure new men. Here is hoping we have a couple by the time you arrive from your fur-lough. It might be of interest for you to know that Sgt. Eaton has taken over the French horn and is practicing with us every day. Also that Sgt. Ferris is now rolling away mile aftet' mi'le toward North Adams, Mass., and wedding bells. Are you lucky? Somethi.ng has gone wrong with our water system and we have to depend on sodas (and other beverages), and water from other parts of the field. It goes ldnd of tough on the boys. When you come back I have a little personal matter to take up. with you, and it is my hope that you have a darn good excuse for an answer. Too bad we can' t take the band down to the termi.Jolal to you back, but you '!!!'now how it is. I only hope the boys on the field will bear with us until a few more m e n join our organization, then w e will give them music, hot and hea vy. DREW FIELD ECHOES A. W. T. U.

Friday 2 1942 DREW FIELD ECHOES. 1j Under the 8th Wing By CPL. L. E. BLOCH Las t week, in a softball with our n e i ghbors, "The Fightin' 9th Infantry," we had 'em 4-2 in the first of the fourth when the game had to be called on account of condensation on an extremely hu mid day. (Never let it be said that it rains in Florida.) Hostilities will be resumed at an early date. Pvt. Donald MacBrian will rep resent the 8th in the Obstacle Course Championship Meet, to be' held on October 8. The winner of the event will. be the guest of the Tampa Terrace Hotel for a super deluxe week-end. Can see Mac now sitting up in the Palm Room with all the brass hats .... We are happy to welcome the latest addition to the Wing's staff, of of ficers, Capt. James R. Cox, chap lain, who will furn.ish our spihtual guidance. Chaplain Cox held his first services for :the organization out under the trees in the Wing area last Sunday. "Who was that lady I saw you outwit last night?" was a question asked Herbert Hurwitz, the pres idigitating private of the 8th, who gave a standing room performance in the phone booth at the main PX one night last wek. Pvt. Charles Berin stein, an ex-accountant, spent last week as "latrine mechanic," look ing after the "assets" of the Wing. ... Much to the surprise cif everyone, the Wing's collie mascot became the mother of eight. pups of unkliown lineage a few days ago. Have you JlOticed how Pfc. Carl Russin haS"'been following the straight and n arrow lately'! Couldn't be he's expecting the wife on a visit soon-or could it? T /Sgt. Donald Gilliland has gone up to Portsmouth, Ohio, for a first look at his daughter, who was born on September 23. And, come to think of it, we didn't get a cigar on that deal! ... Certainly did hate to see Sgt. Eddie East wick leave us last wek. He was transferred to the 314th Air Base Squadron to await his call to ocs. Pfc. Salph Jones' maps are sad ly neglected each time a feminine footstep is heard on the sidewalk ne;u the Situations Room. We fear that one of these days he's going to snap a vertebra turning his head so quickly. At ease; Jones! Wonder who this "Mary" is up at Keesler that we are told Pvt. William Booth misses so? Here's a little poem we came across re cently: If he parks his little flivver Down beside the river, And. you feel him all a-quiver, Baby. he's a wolf. If he says you're gorgeous looki:il' And your eyes set him a-cookin', But your eyes ain't where he's lookin', Baby a woU. W .hen he says that you're an eyeful, Bilt his hands begin to trifle, And his heart pumps like a rifle, Baby, he's a wolf. If by chance while you are kissin', You can feel his heart a-missin', And you talk, but he won't listen, Baby, he's a wolf. If his ani\S are strong as sinew; And he stirs the gypsy in you, And you want him close ag'in you, Baby, he's a wolf. -'.1\.nonymous. PHOTOGRAPHS ,Roy N.'
