VOL. 1 No. 43 Published Every Week D ,rew Field, Tampa, Florida December 30, 194Z Money-Back Patriots Add to the Final Cost of V i c t o r y Drew Post Offices Handle Big Volume Of Christmas MaH The Christmas spirit was evid ent at Drew Field throughout ro weeks preceding the holi _judging from the volume o f mail-and parcels handle d by the Base post offices: During those two weeks most ;soldiers had bundles and boxes cra.mme d underneath bunks: .in ba1'racks bags, in foot lock ers,ready.to be opened onChrist day. Others who could not W _Cj.it until Yuletide opened the pac]{ages and showed what the :fqlks back home had sent. :.so tremendous was the volume .of -imiil and parcels that two .triicks wer e used four times daily fQr transporting the mail to and f.t:om the Tampa post office dur i:pg that period in contrast to the ?'se of one truck three times daily lh a normal period .. Additional spldiers were detailed to handle the maiL Some of the incoming mail went through the Army Di r'ectory Service (transfers and overseas shipments), n e c essitating rebilling of registered and insured mail. Two problem types among the purchasers of War Bonds have arisen: First, the type that wants its money back "right now'' because War Bonds are not deliv ered whe n 90 day s have elapsed since the bonds were fully paid for. This (ype may be heard to remark along this line, "I'm used to getting what I pay for I put out the price," or something this: I m cancelling my res-! ervation and demanding my money back use I'm getting tired I of "' iaiting. for my b01ids." Sec ondly, the one who, with a great flourish, demonstrates the patriotism or financiering sagacity by loaning Uncle Sam the price of a honcl for 60 davs to win this war, and then decides to call the loan off. This latter type someon e has aptly termed the "Money-Back Patriot." Captured German Plane Is On Exhibit In Tampa This Wee-k Almost all mail was delivered b y Christmas day, excepting late arrivals and transfers which, of :course, will still be coming in fo 1 a week or ten days, Below is a list of the postal business done in the two Drew 'Field post offices during the peri 'bd of December 15 to 24 : .incoming . ;Insured parcels delivered, '(count) ____ _ __________ 12 .842 'Ordinaryparcels delivered, (estimate) __________ ___ 5,000 .Greeting cards delivered, :(e;;timate) ________ ______ 28,500 Rf>cr'stered mail delivered, unt) . __ ------_____ _ 1,686 t\... m.ail delivered, (count) ----------------10 5 :Outgoing Insured parcels for mailing, (count) --------------___ 596 Ordinary parcels for mailing, (count) _ -------------1,472 Greeting cards for mailing, (eshmate) _________ _: ___ 12 000 A slight increase in the amount of bonds redeemed this month is shown over last month.

The stage of 1 the new Recreation Building was s e t for a ttouring USO revue called the CRAZY SHOW. It ,was to start a t 8 P.M. The audience came, but there was no CRAZY SHOW. Instead, talented soldiers, led by Harry Evans and John Mader, filled in with an hour and a half of entertainment, keeping the thousand or more soldiers laughing and cheerful, while the Special Services Office tried fran tically to get in touch with the touring players. They arrived. Twelve of them. Tired, hungry and fourteen hours late The trafn had been delayed, but the show had come. Finally, at 10 o 'clock. the USO CRAZY SHOW opened with a bang. The players may have been tired, but they didn' t show it. Vivian Francis did acrobatic tap dancing with a verve and vigor that brought the house down. Lee Bartell, a torch singer, not only sang well, but added her note of dark beauty-to the entertainment. T ecJ Arkin and Dorothy Roberts, d i r ect from the New York run of "Meet the P eople, brought their n e w brand of humor to the sketches. The show was brought to .a rousing finish by the Two H alls, Wilbur Hall playing several instruments at the same time-violin and trombone; two French horns simultaneously, and songs played on a tire pump adde d to Wilbur Hall's strange icry, a new note in entertainment. Altogether, the men voted the show a fine Christmas present f rom Uncle Sam.

Gordon $eethe next contributed a finely played solo on his trumpet. When he had finished, Pvt. Maurice Feder and Pvt. John Mader enacted a clever sketch of their own writing. Versatile Harry Evans .concluded the program with several dances of a humorous nature. This comedian is at his best when the material is subtle and has for its foundation a natural source.
