No longer do Drew soldiers ask the question, "When are the WAACs coming to Drew Field?" Now the question is, "When are the rest of the W AACs coming? And what are they going to do?" For months the Base prepared for their arrival. Four b'lrracks, similar to those quartermg soldiers (and, in addition, bathtubs), a headquarters building, and a PX with a .beauty parlbr were built. I At long last, after months replete with rumors that the vVAACs were coming he:e, they began to trickle in on May 14, when two dfficers and five enlisted personnel regi:tered at Drew. The fol Jowing day 14 more vvomen soldiers arrivE'd and s-et tled down in the restricted areas reserved fo r them on Hocky Point. Under the direction of the contingent's commanding officer, j Second Officer Barbam H Small, 'of Beverly, Massachusetts, and her j officer, Third Officer Neva H. Barnes, of Cheyenne, \Wyoming, they got their orderly i room in shape and s tarted to funcltion as a unit. First Sergeant Marion Junod, of Detrc it, Mich1gan, heads the enlisted personne l of 19 WAACs, most of vvhom are classified as cooks and quartermasters. One other non-commissioned officer is included among them, Snpply Sgt. Eugeni a Jurgens, of New York City. Dov.rn io Business The administrative machinery has already been set in action, with the orderly room personnel handling the diverse memoranda, forms, circulars, bulletins and requisitions of a headquarters unit. Tall, charming F/Sgt. Junod and her pretty company clerk, Auxiliary First Class Ch!istina Conner, of Denver, Colorado, are handling the office details at present. When asked how soon the remainder of the expected 250 WAACs would join them, ht. Small said with a charming sm\le, "I'm not sure. I understand tha t 26 more are due h ere Friday from one of the schools. They are not going to come here all in one group. Rathe they are going t o trickle in. They are going to come here from different schools." For the time being they are eating at the mess hall of the 314th Air Base Hq. and Air Base Sq. pending the opening of their own mess hall. Their PX and beauty parlor are being decorated with murals painted by Pvt. Edward H. Solomon, art editor o f The Echoes. Their physical training program will include an arc hery team and a softball team that w ill play the MacDill W AACs. What jobs are they going to perform? They don't know yet. All they know is that they have been trained to relie.ve officers and men of desk and other for overseas and combat duty. The WAACs have been trair.e:J. ror 2 5 highlv techmcal jobs with the Army Air F01:ces. The enthusiasm of the women for their ser vice is infectio u s and they have proved so satisfa.:tNy elsewhere that the Army Air Forces has been talking' P.l:out needing more than 3 00.\:0:J WAACs.

May 21, 1943 Advice lo Pilots .., Lost in Jungles Pilots force d down in jungle or d esert will no longer find themselves facing disaster because tney lack the "know-how" of survival in these regions. "Jungle and Desert Emergen cies," prepared by the Flight Comtrol Command, is now being placed in the B-2 Emergency kits of all parachutes to be used by pilots operating in desert and jungle areas. A bright red cover 'to make it easily distinguishable in any ter rain, and chemical treatment of cover and inside pages to guard them against effects of water and insects are features of the guide. Compact and pocket-size, it offers sound information on practically any phase of a "Robinson Crusoe" existence. For instance it points out that food is plentiful in most jungles jj you can distinguish between and poisonous plants. In a Lighter Vein An American soldier, attached to one of the American Tank Units fighting in tl)e Libyan campaign, had been taken many miles into the desert with his comrades. This outpost had been quiet for a day and one afternoon he found himself with a few hours leave. His C.O saw him striding across the sands clad in bathing trunks. "Murphy," he shouted, "where are you going?" "Swimming, sir," "Are you crazy? The ocean is 500 miles away." "Beautiful bier beach isn't -it?" replied the soldler. i< i< i< A fellow walked up to a bar and ordered a drink. He poured out the liquor and nibbled the edge. He ordered another and did the same thing. The bartender looked at him and said, "Are you crazy?" "No," was the reply, "I like the rim of the glass." "But," said the bartender, "the stem is the best part." i< iot i< A man walked into a barbe1 shop, handed the ?arbel a coi_n, and then clnnbed mto the chair. "Why, sir, thank yo u ," said the astonished barber, "never before have I been tipped in advance. "That is not a tip," snarled the sustomer, "It's hush money."

Purification procedures are also described. Where no natural water source is available, stems of lianas, jungle grapevines and rattans contain good water substitutes, the book adds. Twenty common edible jungle plants are illustrated, and methods for their preparation or cook-. ing discussed. Various animals and insects suitable for sustaining life in an emergency are listed. Among .these are termites, which can _be eaten raw after the wings I have .been removed, and beetle gr!lbs which must be cooked or I dned. A section on jungle health stresses the frequent use of quinine as a malaria preventive I and cautions protection against the mosquitos, most dangerous of jungle insects. Dangers from natives and jungle animals have been much exaggerated according to the guide.
