VOL. 2, NO.1 Published Every Friday Drew Field, Tampa, Florida Friday, March 12, 1943 ECHOES HAS FI ST BIRTHDAY! ECHOES OF DREW These Men Bring You The Echoes Or-1 Remember When <.---.,. \ < S Told to Pvt. H. M. Peterson t As Drew Field nears its second a busy, bustling camp sprawled out of what was once swamp land, two of the first officers to be stationed here began reminiscing the other 'day. recalled some interesting and little known facts about the field's development. The officers, Majors Frederick K. Bull and Glover E. Tully, came here from MacDill Field on August 25, 1941, to find the place rather primitive as a military establishment. The personnel had under handicapping con ditions, and as they think back now, they wonder how they did It. At one time, Major Tully had to be the permanent Officer of the Day for a solid month. There I was no PX, no theater or Service 1 Club, and the only Chapel Serv ice was administered by Chaplain William Clark in a tent. There was no Officer' s Club, and the officers had to live in a building that might be called a "shack." There were no .lights or water. Further, there was no guard house, and Major Tully recalls a humorous slant about the first prisoner. He was a member of a prominent college fraternity; the first prisoner chaser turned out to be a member of the same outfit. It has not been revealed how they got along. Putting out a newspaper is not a one-ma11 jcb. I takes a s:taff putting ccpy and ideas ino print. These are' the men hat make he Echoes heard: Seated at the desk is ihe edi:lor, Cpl. Jesse S.

At one time the Base Headquarters "offices" were located in the airplane hangar. It was cold and damp, .and every time the doors were opened, every piece of paper :which was not battened down was blown to th.e rafters.

Maiors Bull and Tullv also reIn DeSoto Area call that the only officers who were at the base when they came in August, 1941 were Col. onel AsP. Major Forrest Munger, Maior Thomas Hogan. Chaplain Clark, and Captain Earl Smith. The:v are proud of the record of the Base in carrying on its work with an absolute minimum of personnel. It was in August of 1941 that the first apron of concrete for the runways was laid, and the first plane to land on the fi'eld came December 17, 1941. Among those who were there to greet it was Genera l Clarence Tinker, who later died at the Battle of Midway. December 7th and Pearl Harbor brought vivid recollections. Most of the men were on passes downtown, or on furlough. There was some confusion at first: but telegrams were sent recalling those on furlough, and an extra detail of MP's was sent to Tar.pa to A wholehearted r eception was given the new Post Exchange No. 5 which was formally opened this week and indicates what will be Camp DeSoto's most popular retreat. Present at the opening were Major Alfred B Strickler, Cornmanding Officer of th.e 59th Avn. ; Capt. A. W. Lewis, Base Adjutant; Capt. Edwin P. Jones and his assistants, Capts. Morris I. Porler and Donald S. Evans, and several hundred e lated soldiers. As part of the ceremony, Major Strickler gave a short address to the men asking for their cooperation in keeping the place clean and orderly. He then presented the m e n present with a ticket valued at 25 cents for their first purchases. The men are all behind the major and will no doubt see that all hls vYishes are cheerfully By Pvt. Jackson K. Stewart The Special Services Office, started in December, 1941, with three men, has now grown to a staff of thirteen officers and enlisted men, in addition to a large number of volunteer entertainers and workers from the soldiers at large. When organized, Captain Earl Smith was directing officer, assisted by 1st Lt. Earl DeForest and S/Sgt. William Abbott, who is now the oldest man in point of service. Sporsored Base Arena Many .soldiers at Drew will remember the shows held at the Base Arena, which was begun in December of 1941, and completed soon after. Defense recreation committees in Tampa and nearby cities were called upon for entertainments. They responded generously by working with other organizations and the Special ices Office. Transportations arrangements were made, and soldiers were taken to dances in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and other cities. Shows were put on every Monday night at the Arena. Later, two weekly shows were put on the schedule. Early in 1942, Spe cial Services started regular broadcasts from neighboring radio stations, with the Staff writing own continuity, in cooperation with the Public Relations Office. In March, 1942, Pvt. 0 "Z. Whitehead was added to the Staff -h.e has been on the job continuously, and is now sergeant. Transportatio n for outside entertainment for soldiers was increased, and more effort was put into the radio broadcasts. More soldiers began to participate actively in the pcograms. Lt. DeForest, shortly after his promotion to Captain, Speci!J-1 Services for a CWS umt. Captam Smith left in the same month for overseas services. Toward the end of May, Colonel Richard Gimbel became head of the office.

Johnson, Tayer and Williams having returned from OTU S:hool at lV!acDill Field, filled with the knowledge of how to become b elter and more capable non-commissione d officers in the future. It has been rumored that Pfc. John H Braynon is leading the T yping Class, ev en if h e has been slightly over powered with joy since learning through recent communication that his little daughter, Gladys, has four pegs now. Odds and Er!ds During the past week the reserve d Sgt. James C. Gray was conversing with the C.O. about our r egular Sunday m orning chanel exercis es and the C.O. asked, "How many different de nominations do we have in our squadron?" The good sei g 2anl seriousl y r eplied, "Sir, we have a few Catholics, a mass of Prot lestants ;:md th-ree or four Presby lterians." The organist for our chape l exercises was none other than Mnjor ALFRED B. STRICK LER last Sunday morning .... L t. lVIoore, our new chaplain, is in his office twice every week to help you bear your troubles.

Fellows, this is one of the finest buildings of this type on Drew Field, if not the finest, so let's try to keep it so. To help the sales of this new project we have two of those lovely Tampa maidens as salesgirls. When the whistle is blown for a formation, don't let the "personality-plus" of these two ladies delay you. SIGNAL HQ. & HO. CO. IU Command ""' By PFC.

Over St. Petersburg way, there is a diamond that's glittering in the bright svnshine and the cause of it is reticent Sgt. John Shuey.

}>age 8 ,->-; On Drew Field Becomes Citizen A refugee from Germany, an emigre froi:n Palestine, a soldier in the Army of the United States -that, in short, is the story of Private Schulin Barth, 28, newly made American citizen. He is a member of a signal corps air warning service unit a t Drew Field, Tampa, Florida, one of the largest army: -air' base$. in the Southeast. Private .Barth entered the army at Fort Hayes. Columbus, Ohio, on July 7, 1942 He was assigned to the Signal Corps and sent to Ca.mp his basic training. He stayed there 2.! moriths and came to Drew Field in tember, 1942, serving as a clerk in the orderly room of his organ ization. He studied at a Rabbinical school in Frankfurt, Germany, and when Hitler began his bloody regime in Germany in 1933 he left school and went to Palestine. There he spent four years, work ing most of the time on an orange grove collective farm in Petach, Ticquah which, translated liter-. ally, means "the beginning of hope." In Palestine he found the ex istence of considerable ill feeling between the Arabs and Jews. Before the first World War, he 1 pointed out, the Arabs were mostly under Turkish domination and held Pan -Moslem political views-namely, that all Moslems should unite against Christians and Jews. Nonetheless, due to -the, influence of the famous explorer I and author, T. H. Lawrence, many Arabians leaders were convinced that they should unite as Pan Arabian rather than Pan-Moslem. However. after the war it was impossible to unite the Arabs, and the 'Pan-Arabian viewpoint as a result of Palestine being placed under the home rule of the Jews. Again the Arabs their DREW FIELD ECHOES the Miss Air force Contest Pictured are four of the eight contestants in the Miss Air Fo:rce contest which was held yesterday af:teirnoon in Plant Park.
