New War Bond Systent Cuts Waiting TLrne Banking Facilities Made Available for Personnel of Drew b ew Men Now Billy Keen and His Rodeo B . W B d To Ride Here On Sunday uy1ng ar en s Af a Steady Pace :Drew Field officials have put into operation the War Department's new streamlined method of issuing War Bonds through the Class "A" Reservation Plan. Under the new system, bonds will be in the hands of Drew Field buyers much quicker than in the past. Red tape has been slashed, short cuts taken, and civilians working on the post have had thei r bond-buying m ethod divorced from that o f the Army personneL 1 Military personnel who hold Class "A" pay reservations will continue to receive bonds from the Treasury Department in Washington. However, civilians will get their bonds direct from the Finance Officer at the Finance Office of Drew Field. This will save time b ecause it will relieve the congestion at the Washington end where formerly all such pay reservation purchases were cleared. ECHOES TO GET FACE LIFT Next week the Drew Field Echoes will .come out with a orand-new mast head. The original mast head, originally designed for a single-page edition, has not progressed with the growth of the rest of the paper. The drawing, made by Pvt. Ed Solomon, staff artist, will be more i-n keeping with the size and quality of the paper.

It all came about after a recent inspection. In keeping with a squadron order, this soldier laid out all his GI equipment in neat display on his bunk. It looked strictly regulation to him, toothpaste, soap, toothbrush, socks, raincoat, everyhting there in good shape. So that same afternoon, when he discovered, his name on the "gig list," he was baffled. True, he explained, he hadn't laid out his comb with the rest of the. articles .
