VOL. L No. 42 Published Weekly Drew Field, Tampa, Florida Chrisimas. 1942 CHRISTMAS WILL BE FULLY OBSERVED Drew Station Hospital Opened; Most r1f1edical Facilities In the Station Hospital at Drew Field, which is now nearing completion, the Army medical department is utilizing all of its numerous medical and surgical facilities to keep healthy the sol-I' diers stationed there. The fact that the American Army is the healthiest in the world is not the result of chance. It is due to careful planning. "Sound mind in sound body" was the Greek ideal during its golden age and that is the ideal of our United States Army, too. When a soldier is in good health, he can do his job better, he can think more clearly, he is Bes:l: Healih Reco:rd --------=== The first patient in the new hospital was Pvt. William H. Fisher, of an air warnmg unit stationed at Drew Field. The nurse is Lt. Alice Lehto, and the doctor in attendance i s Capt. Harry R. Newman. Ward Officer. The hefllth of our Army is exceptional. Our new soldierg have a better health record tl1an any in our military history. On the average, they are far healthier than the men at Valley Forge and hardier than the men at Gettysburg; they are better protected from disease than the men in the Argonne. Their lungs are better than those of the 1917-18 recruits, the rates for respiratory diseases being unusually low. Their hearts are 1 s d stronger.

Washington's men crossed the Delaware on 24-hour rations of a pint of milk, 16 ounces of beef, I ounces of dried peas, and a quart of spruce beer. I In the war of 1812, regulations stipulated that mess should. be i prepared by squads of p r i':ates J and the G.I. Cook Book advised: I "Bread ought not to be burnt!' The Civil War introduced yeast' and pepper to the groceries but you'd never recognize the chow of that time as ''balanced diet.". The Spanish-An1erican War introduced the K.P. potato-peeling; and by World War I butter was allowed on bread. Fn-1its, cocoa, cheese, bacon, macaroni, and tea became part of the regular issue in 1927.

Miss Holloway's interpretation of compositions by Liszt, Bee thoven, Glinka, Chopin, and Chaminade proved her versatility and ability as a concert pianist. This was Miss Holloway's first recital here at Drew, but we hope that she will return again and again to thrill her soldier audiences with her radiating. presence and delightful renditions. A Letter From Home Dear Editor: The front page of the Nov. 20th issue of your camp paper was sent to me recently. My husband, who is stationed at Drew Field, sent it to me so I could read all about the Coca-Cola s):row. I found the paper so very in teresting that I read both sides of that page completely. One article in particular caught my at tention-the one about Pfc. Faires' lucky numbers being 1 3 and 5. After thinking about it for a while, I decided to tell you about Sgt. Russell L. Geary's nu merous 13's this year. Perhaps you will find them even more of a joke than the other-combinations. First of all, Sgt. Geary's birthday was Friday, the 13th of No vember. H e was 26 years old (2 x13), and furthermore he had completed exactly 13 months in the army on that date. All that seems to b e jinx enough for one sergeant, but not for this one. You see, he was married August 31 (turn it around and you have 13 ) Then, too, his postoffice box number at home is 3 13 and -his bank deposit is 13. In spite of all the superstitions, we are laughing at all these 13's and I hope the rest of the boys will get a kick out of them, too. What I saw of your camp paper was really good. I will have to try and get a complete i ssue next time. Sincerely, o -Mrs. R. L. Geary P S I remember that the other fellow ended his article with a 13-day furlough. I just hope that my husband can do as well-and soon! f I d th Through the courtesy of station The Army Forces has reChristmas Eve.

It is a low-wing monoplane, the wings tapering more on the leading than on the traili11g edge,and with the fuselage projecting slightly ahead of the Pratt & Whitney airc_ooled engi11es. The latter are almost i11 line with the nose. The wing have a moderate dihedral and the elevators are slightly shorter than the tailplane. The cross sectiotJ of the fuselage appears roughly rectangular in hope. OUR TROOPS live pretty _primitively in their scactered camps. They're on American rations now and the food is really wonderful. But there i s very little water. There is no room for little niceties and homey touche s as in the bigger tents in England. And there are no lights. Military police patrol the streets in the cities.
