Page Eight T H E E C H 0 E S July 9. 1943 ---------------'--'----------:---------;--------------------'-----.,-Original WAA( PHOTOQUIZ 9llih O.M. ON THE BALL Guaranteed Walch Repairin g By Sgt. Raymond R. Simmons The changes instituted in the Also Did Her Pari 1 In World War I! Prepared by the Editors of LOOK. Magazine various organizations in the Camp DeSota area are to be highly commended. The most praiseworthy is the laying of the foundation of the combination theater and chapei. Perhaps some of us are a little mentally hazy regard ing the assets to be derived from these acts, so I am passing my opinion to you,. with the hope that they will be accepted for what they are worth. Over 40: Years in-Tampa Servic. e Men's Watches Repaired in Less Than One Week If the present-day WAAC is inclined to excuse her shortcomings or those of her outfit "because we are so new an or ganization," she'd better pin her ears back for a rebuke. T .he original W AAC did her part in World War I and the cos-I tume she wore appeared no more I strange to the civilian seeing her for the first time, than the ones worn by the W AACs on the stre:;t:; of Tampa today. The hat the first WAAC wore was similar to the! "campaign" hats worn by the Americansoldiers until a few ye-01rs ago and for which the wellI dre-ss-ed paid p!enty out of his own pocket v ;hen he "bucked" for inspection. lt'or :;ome reason the Amcric:om Army. ir. the first vVorlcl War, failed tu enlist femmine aid for clerical and other assi.srilncc i i:1t women give in this wal'. How ever. a crved as operaturs witu the A .E.F. Even before the fir:= t World 'Vat, WJmen active: in units very si.mifar. tci the militai-y organizations in which they serve today. A school, much like our basic trpining ;:;chools, was es ;,s tlie National Service School, Chevy. Chase. Maryland, At the end of May, 1916 more than. 1000 women had been trained to do their bit should their. country neerl them. Time was limited. and the women were given settitig up ex ercises, squad and company drill, first aid. of all types, ;md sighal work. The Red Cross had charge of one section of the camp and the women were taJ.tght to make band:ages, sew, and administer first aid. Because women wore so many "gadgets" in those days, physical training called for many adjust ments. They suffered from the same blistered feet at sick call, probably griped about the chow as much as the present day WAAC. Competition \vas as keen among the companies as it is todayThey learned all the tricks of the! trade from the. r-egular soldier9 with whom they came in co. n.tact ... they even A.W. O.L. and suffered courts\.martial for certain offenses. Many r efused to use the shower s (un-heat-. ed) that were an innovation in those days. The first WAAC organization rat-ed an-inspection by President Wilson and other dignitaries. WeU, .tQ.e present WAAC. knows what that meant !?tanding fcir hours ar parade rest, waiting for the presidential party to show up. ', Much of the unrest and con flicts. that exist in this area are ": ., ,the dire.ct results of the limited social and recreatienal facilities available to the men, and.the arrant neglect of the personnel as a whol e, which may be partly due to the numerical weaknesses of the several organizations. On numerous occasions the men as a group commented on these factors and expressed a wish that .some interested party would in tei:cede in their behalf. Prior to .the activation of new companies in this area, it was financially impractical to build a theater. Now with enlisted personnel swelling the rosters, not only is it finan-' cially practical, but a gesture which will .give a greater incenc tive to. enlisted men fcir staying in camp .. during the evenings without fear of boredom. With parts of Tampa restricted 'to military personnel, this new : I area actiyity cqmes at an .oppor-tune moment: Inother areas on I the field -where .the personnel i s large enough to warrant provi sions for large-scale recreational facilities, delinquent reports are virtually at a minimum. Hence, with similar facilities being in, troduced in this area, the hope for less emotional outbursts and minimized delinquencies are looked forward to with no little anticipation. A.few lines from the poem "Ex. celsior'' can be used as an ade quate warning to men of Camp DeSota: Beware the M.P.s' awful branch; Beware terrible avalanche; And watch the off-limit zones, Or else you'll return with broken bones.
