GILREATH Same .Job, Same Desk . Not Same Pay Col. Fillmore Asks Drivers To 'PickUp' Let's Fill All Cars Is Advice of Officer Drew Field soldiers are agreed that what the transportation-seeking Gis need are more motorists like Lieut. Col. William H. Fillmo:J;'e, Base executive officer. The colonel is all-out for picking up soldiers and giving them lifts. And he wishes that more motorists-civilian and military-would open their car doors to soldiers. Hundreds of civilians, officers and enlisted men make it a point to load their automobiles before leaving the base. But there als9 are too many hundreds who skim by alone in their 5-passenger cars just as though this was still December 6, 1941. "Not an empty car leaves Drew Field," could well be the Base's motto, Col. Fillmore said. Fully aware that every drop of gasoline must do its utmost work, the colonel is so sold on the subject of giving lifts to soldiers that every night he packs his car with them. He drives a 3-passenger automobile, but he packs five into it: three in the front and two in the trunk. Mr. Albert M. Gilreath, 36, dropped from a civilian standing and a Civil Service job that paid approximately Let' s help beat the 5 o'clock $2,800 a year to Pvt. Albert M.

DREW FIELD ECHOE!, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1943 PAGE THREE Fire an Axis Friend Gets 'Ax' FLAMES AND SMOKE ENVELOPE A P-40 as Drew Field smoke-eaters give demonstration to show how to fight airplane fires. The plane, no longer fit for flying and stripped of virtually everything, was doused with gasoline, then set ablaze. Firemen, answering "alarm," sped to the scene, rescued the "pilot" and quelled the blaze within a few minutes. Demonstration was port of Fire Prevention Week and was attended by several hundred soldiers/ civilians and visiting fi,remen from towns in the Tampa area. FIRE LOSS EXCEEDS WAR DEAD Afire? IIIII IIIII Call 17 ONE SYMBOL EQUALS 1,000 DEAD ttttt ttt Ettinger Researc h SINCE Pearl Harbor the destruction caused by fire in the United States has been comparable to the damage caused by all the enen, ty bombing over England during the first two years of .the war, according to Presi dent Roosevelt's proclamation issued for the observance of Fire tion Week. Even more serious is the loss of life caused by fire. Annua death toll from fire approximates 10,000 lives This figure exceeds OUJ combat losses in the first year of the war when the Army and Navy re ported 8,000 combat dead. (International) GASOLINE AND OIL FikES should be fought w ith carbon dioxide or foam extinguisher/ which do a quick job. Gaso line and water do not mix1 so don! t try to put out gasoline and oil blazes with a water or soda acid extinguisher, the container with the red top. RUBBISH BLAZES can be quelled with any type extinguisher. Usually the water pump type or the soda acid extinguisher will do the job. The best way to fight fires, of course, is to prevent them. But no matter how careful you are fire might strike near you at any time. Because of the ever-present threat of fire, you should be familiar with what to do when flames are discovered. The first thing you should remember is not to get panicky. Act quickly and calmly. Hundreds of Drew Field civilians, military personnel and from towns in the Tampa area'witnessed the realistic fire fighting demonstrations given at various parts of the field. The demonstrations were not thrill shows to be enjoyed at the time, then promptly forgotten. They were hard, practical lessons on what to do when fire strikes. The lessons given by Drew Field firemen should be well learned. Remembering what to in case of fire would reduce considerably the shocking toll of lives taken by fire in the United States every year. Every twelve months fires at home in the United States take approximately 10, 000 lives, or 2 000 more than the Army and Navy lost in combat with the Axis! To help educate Drew Field civilian and military personnel in fire fighting Capt. R. W. Godfrey, Base fire marshal, has released the pictures in columns 1 and 2 and 4 and 5 with appropriate instructions. Clip them and post them where you'll always see them. They may be responsible for saving heavy fire damage or lives . Above all, remember the fire department's telephone number is 17. ELECTRICAL FIRES1 which ore so common in the home, should be fought with carbon tetrachloride or carbon diox ide NEVER use water, soda or foam. While fighting electrical fires make certain you don't m9ke physical contact with electrical equipment. If usrng carbon tetrachloride in a confined space you should wear a mask. GREASE FIRES should be fought with a foam exting.uisher, the container with the yellow type A steady stream should be directed at the opposite side of the pan or kettle, just a little above the flames. The foam should be allowed to form and float back over the fire. The job also con be done with carbon dioxide, but NEVER use soda and acid.

This war is being fought to protect___:. not produce-the humanities. The Allied primary purpose is to destroy a regime which believes in the burning of books; the' systematic control of thought and education. The War Department, however, areal izes that there are thousands of soldiers who cherish the thought of writing the great American novel, and instead of re stricting they are encouraging creative efforts during our spare time. Most J}Otable example is the current National Theater Conference' s drama contest which offers prizes totaling $10 000. Dramas must be submitted before Dec. 1, t' o the organization which has headquarters in Cleveland, 0 There's an old saying that everyone has q.t least one good story in his skull, and we can think of no better way to try yoUr skill and spend your spare time than by entering the contest. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN ECHOES Fiction By Pvt. Peter Brock The kid stopped talking. I watched him as he slowly chewed the sandwich. His eyes seemed to float around the room like a shifting camera taking a picture to be developed and filed away in the. human album. There was nothing new to 'be seen. The perennial line, the soldiers sprawled like question marks on chairs, the talk and laughter, the heavy cigarette smoke, the. iridescent juke box, the continual shift of khaki, all lost in individual thoughts or banded together in tiny tribes protected and governed by instinct and background, all still a bit frightened or forgotten or bold or gay or crude or angry or worried. The kid ;had come up to me a few minutes ago as I stood in line waiti,ng for a hamburger. I'm absent minded and when he held his hand out and called my name I couldn' t place him. It was only after he began talking about OT that I remembered him. He had been in our outfit. Worked as a clerk in the office I think. He was short and serious and his' hair was cut collegiate and his face. was maturing with a couple of wrinkles starting like small strands of string across his forehead. "Those were the good old day s ," he had said. I had almost laughed, but his face wasn' t ready for laughter. He actually meant it. Imagirie anyone calling fitJ. d training "good old days. His next remark had been just as odd. "Pretty good place, Drew," he said. "Yeah. That wasall I said. All I could say, because I'd been cussing it for some weeks now. "They say the last camp is the best;" he said apparently reading my pe_rplexity. After tha:t we just sat and ate our hambur-gers. "I got a .telegram today," he said after the hamburger was finished. "Makes one feel kinda good. He removed the yellow form from his notebook and handed it to me. It wa' s signed "mother and. dad" and came from Nebraska and said: "Sorry you can't come home. If you can telephone do so. Do you need any money. If so wire us collect. We are so proud of you and our prayers are living messages that cannot be severed by time or place. Love." "They're really swell," he said, and I nodded agreement. It was a decent telegram. Not the kind of mush you usually get, not too personal, yet intimate enough to fit indelibly among a select group of memories. "This is pretty swell too, he said nodding at the crowd. "Of course that's why we're in the Armyto go," he Said. "Sure. Only thing to do. Can' t win the war here," I said. We didn't say l!l.uch after that. I got up and wished him luck and elbowed through the crowd. Outside the air was cool and fresh. I turned Biound and looked at the place with its lights and smells and pistol pa,ckin' mamma blaring into the darkness. Then I turned around and walked quickly to my barracks feeling tired and restless. "Say Uncle Sam." 11An Aviator Teaches" By CHAPLAIN FRANCIS L; AUER Among the fliers who bombed Tokyo with Jimmy Doo little was a certain Lt. William Farrow. He established. quite a record as a pilot and is now still heroically enduring a session of torturous imprisonment as a J ap captive. Back in 1940, about the time he took up aviation, he wrote out a memorandum called: "My Fut}l:t;'e." We repeat some of his notations. They reveal a man of strong character built upon a conviction that he had a job to do that it was to be done with perfection, and according to God's Holy Will. "It' s going to be hard, but it's the only way. Work with a pur pose is the only practical means of achieving an end. "First: What are my weaknesses: ... 1st.

MMMMmm-That's ci ;..:;;.;gh shot, soldier Maybe you'd like to get in there and show him how it's done. Steady nerves and keen eyes, ga; ned through time-off practice at pool, may pay off ,...-later on I'M BEAT! Let's h .... _ -This milk bar is "hep" to just what a soldier believes a snack should be. Milk drinks, soft drinks, pie, sandwi c' ::s .. and ice cream, all priced for a soldier's pocket. Aft'r all, Legionnaires were soldiers, too, and the club is or_,_d to make Gls feel ot.home. We thought the much delayed tornado had struck Drew when suddenly the First Training barracks was shaken by gre:rt vibrations. Much to everybody's surprise we found it was the jitterbugging of 400 pounds of s o I i d manhood, Corporal Kahn and Sergeant Noble. It was a sight to behold. They can really shake some mean hips. Another interesting item was when Pfc. Tony Gonsalves was waiting to board a bus in town. He spied a very pretty girl sitting near a window on the bus. He knocked down three soldiers getting next to her but he made it, much to our surprise. He was a gentleman, and only gazed in rapture and was content. MAN OF WEEK Arkansas Traveler Cpl. Billy Corn was seen traveling heavy with a luscious creatnre in the heart of Tampa. Nice work corporal. Everybody' s choice for the man of the week is Tech Sergeant Syl vester Kleshinski. Syl is a good guy and doesn' t want to frighten anybody. He is a real sparkplug of the outfit and a big burden rests on his shoulders. Even with his responsibilities, the sergeant .always has a kind word for everybody. We salute you as our man of the week. We have several men of the hour (the hours that. have passed), but we'll wait until they grow into men of the week before we mention them. This week our mysterious soldier who unknowingly passes among us. and looks for the best dressed GI of the week has chosen Pfc. Earl (GI) Payne. He's neat as a pin at all times and m .odestly claims he owes all his success to the little woman. He' s so conscious about his dress, that he was only recently convinced he didn't have to wear a tie on the post. EX-HISTORY PROF We are proud to have with us a very distinguished man, our assistant Personnel Officer. he was formerly Dr. Clarence W. Thomas, Professor of History at the Uni versity of Illinois. You'd never guess it, because Lieutenant Thomas is really one of the boys. Corporal Wester had q_,t e a bit of excitement recen t .y. One night while attending tbe d aily performance at the H oward theater, much to his dismay, the cops raided the joint. He says it's disgraceful the way they treat the higher type o f l''lt .er tainment. To add to the growing r11enace to the Axis, Company D has produced lots of good shots with the Carbine. Lots of the boys 'in the company qualified and lots o f the boys are sharp-shooters and we haye experts too. Some of the boys who are experts are Cpls. Claude E Oliver and Charles F. Shea, both with a scorf' of 176 Much success is due those in structors such as Corporal John Geer and Sergeant Meyersick and not to mention the. first s ergeant who is a real shot ancl also a good soldier, F /Sgt. Miller. Accident Befalls SP LOS ANGELES, Cal.---(U .P.l Prof. C. I. Althouse, professional seer, crystal ball gazer anc l reader of the signs of the zodiac. in some way overlooked fact that was going to affec his life, and which must certainly have been indicated by some one of his many means for divining the fu ture. It was that he was going to fall down on the street and break his leg. However, the General hospital is up the best it ean for his oversight. FIFTH COLUMNISTS OFTEN IN UNIFORM The responsibility for the safe movement of our troops to destinations overseas or to training camps within the United States is the solemn responsibility of every soldier who has knowledge of the movement. The Private, the Lieute!'l.ant and the General, all share the responsibility equally. It is up to each one of us to protect our own weapons of surprise and insure that our buddies will reach their destinations safely. Upon our good sense and discretion depends their very lives. In addition to jeopardizing the lives of the troops who are being transported the disclosure of troop movements-even the apparently routine transfers within the United States-gives enemy agents the in formation they need to predict our war plans, measure our strength and counteract our blows. HUMAN WEAKNESSES In general the factors that contribute most to the disclosure of troop movements are our own Conceit, Faith, Enthusiasm. or Ignorance. We are all human imd have our weaknesses. Each one of us is vulnerable to a certain extent, in one of the apove ways. Some of us are conceited and our vanity compels us to let everyone know that we have inside informa tion. This kind of soldier is the fellow who impresses the girls with a dazzling line. The only thing wrong with his line is that it generally makes a noose that fits right around Uncle Sam's neck. Then there's the fellow who's a good soldier in every respect, he can always be depended upon in a pinch and he's in there trying all the time. His only fault is that he has too much faith in his friends and family. He never learned the truth of Benjamin Franklin's saying, "Three can keep a secret, two of them are dead. WATCH ENTHUSIASM The honest, praiseworthy enthusiasm of a soldier for his job and for the Army has been the cause of more than one secret leaking out to the enemy. This kind of man is at once a blessing and a curse to the Army. His enthusiasm when directed toward his everyqay duties is what makes our Army so strong to' day. Men of his type are the ones who get things done. Unfortunately, however, he doesn;t always know;vvhere to draw the line and when to stop talking. He is easy pickings for a clever enemy operative who simply winds him up like a phonograph and lets him run until there's nothing more to hear. Finally there's the soldier who knows just how the enemy operative works and would be able to spot one immediately. It would be a cinch and believe you me, he'd turn him over to the F. B. I. on the double. It's a funny thing about this fellow he s really serious when he says he could spot them a mile away. And he could, too-if they really looked the way he thinks they do. He pictures a spy as being a lean, dark, swarthy complexioned fellow, complete with a foreign ,..,.accent, waxed mustache and black cape. And of course, the female spy, is but a modern slinky looking MatiHari who lures soldiers into her boudoir where she coaxes them to tell all. It never occurs to this victim of the "moving pic age" that spies, saboteurs and fir.h columnists do not advertise their trade. Instead they are friendly, inconspicuous people who use every cunning, every wile, imd play on every weakness in our nature to obtain military information from us. KEEP FAITH All of us want to go overseas, but when we step on the gangplank we want to be sure that no one has talked. We won't be happy when we reach the deck, if we suspect that a U-boat may be waiting for us out there where the ocean is wide and deep and cold. Keep faith with your comrades who may today be leaving for an unknown destination. Keep faith with your buddies who will leave with you when your time comes. They trust you-but be sure that you can trust yourself. Don' t Be a Fifth Columnist In Uni form! "Dommit, Jones-you don't have to put your hand out every time your

But QM Officers surpassed this record on the follow ing Monday evening. Ten of them, from the colonel on down, unloaded 10,000 pounds of freight in 30 minutes.

He walked out on the line to look over the familiar sight of B-17' s and bagged a ride. Told to go and get a para chute, he returned to the plane carrying the chute by the rip cord. Not until Cpl. Ralph Cashman, who was along, vividly called attention to the fact, did Rohoton realize that he was dragging several feet of parachute behind him. With much embarrassment Rohoton piled the "silk" in his arms and obtaine d another. The boys enjoyed their ride. although the weather was rough. It may interest you to know that, back home Corporal Cashman flies a "Cub" and frightens the com munity with his antics ih the air. Our sympathy is with the com munity.

From a booth in the Spar tan drug store he telephoned so lengthily to his best girl that, when he finally emerged, he found the store had closed for the night. With military quick thinking he telephoned the police to come and release him and they, with police-trai'ned minds, ex plained to him how he could get out the b ack door which had a night latch.

Basic First Aid Classes for All If your buddy _dropped during a ten-mile hike would you know how to revive him? If that man on the telephone pole suddenly received a terrific_ electric current, could your knowledge be the means of saving him? In orde r to provide expedient treatment for every-da y accidents of all kinds, First Aid will be taught en mass e at Drew Field. The plans, announced recently by Mr. Dan M. Hartley, Drew Field Red Cross field director, will embrace every organization on the Field. LED BY HUFFMAN The First Aid program, under the able direction of Mr. A. F. Huffman, nationally known Red Cross special field representative, and Major Wilford J Fleming, Base S-3 Officer, will proceed throughout October and November. Right now, carefully selected commissioned and non-commis sioned officers of the Air_,Corps are receiving training as in structors in First Aid. They, in turn, will start enlisted men's First_ Aid classes immediately. 'on the twenty-fifth of October, immediately following the com pletion of Air Corps instruction classes, training will begin for those officers from the Third Fighter Command who show spe cial aptitude and teaching ability for First Aid classes. Enlisted personnel will receive their in-struction from their trained superior officers. Beginning November 8 A W officers and non-coms will be trained by the Drew Field Red Cross, in order to instruct mass A W classes in First Aid. By NQvember 22, all Drew Field personnel should be versed in First Aid practices. This program, developed as a result of the splendid reception by Drew Field of the water training program held recentlY, by the Red Cross, is expected to produce greater knowledge and efficiency among troops going into actual combat, or combat training. Both the water training and first aid training will carry over into a man's civil life, as well. Mr. Hartley announced proudly that the local Red Cross chapter has been informed by Area Red Cross Headquarters that the Drew Field water training program. was one of the best in the country. It is due to the efforts o f Lieutenant Charles W. Lyons, together with the Drew Field Red Cross, that swimming has been made compulsory throughout the Third Air Force.

DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1943 PAGE THIRTEI:N Chapel Hour to Present Saturday Radio Program Devotees of the weekly Chapel"Hour at Chapel No. 3 have a well-rounded program to look forward to this Sunday night. The program starts at 8:30 o'clock. On the program wil be Mabel Nicks, who needs no introduction to Drew Field lovers of song; Cpl. Carl Bartsch, concert cellist; the Singing Strings, Chapel Quartet and Organist Adrian Mikesell. 30 MINUTES ,.... On Saturday at 7:30 p.m. the ... Hour will go on the air '-t,:.O!or a 30-minute program, on Tam. -p station WFLA. The first broadcast will feature Corporal Mikesell, organist; Cpl. Llambi Turtulli, opera singer; Cpl. Samuef Gruzin, violinost; the Singing Strings, and the quartet. Last Sunday's program, which was given to a 'capacity audience, was highlighted by Donna McLeod, concert and radio singer of station WSUN, St. p .eters burg, and by Gruzin. Miss McLeod' s interpretation of "If I Could Tell-You" and "Smoke Gets in Yow-Eyes" won he audi.:. ence immediately, calling her back for an encore favorite of many artists, "A Little China Figure." POPULAR SONGS Later in the program Miss McLeod teamed with Pvt. Roy Glahn to .sing the two ever-popular love duets, "Why Do I Love You?" and "Sympathy Waltz." Corporal Gruzin has played many times for Drew Field audiences, but his presentation of Monti's was the most masterful "we'Ve heard.

Last week, I left you around the corner behind the Singing Monster and the burping-people. Well, now you will have to carry: a cave on your back for ten or eight miles in order to get by this man who has connections with the leaping people. These Leaping-people were born prematw-ely goosed. * :;: By turning over your cave to these people, they will lead you to the lake upstairs of Clancy's Hotel No. 2 until you come to a huge piece of mud. Have no truck with this mud, because farther down the road you will come to the Ouch people, those people who are born withboils on the bottom of their feet. You will find they are just opening up a roadside stand to sell snatchfrong sandwiches, which are made out of smoke, profanity and mongarian lettuce. Under no circumstances must you sing "On the I)oad to Mandalay" while eating a snatchfrong sandwich which is the pride of the Ouch people. This song will bring the Hair People. deadly enemies of the Ouch people, out of the hills in full cry. The Hair people are those people born bald-headed but with seven quarts of hair on their faces. .As a matter of fact, the Ouch people have bought the Road to Mandalay-the road, not the song-and pl;on to turn it over to the Singing Monster providing he will take it-take it to Mandalay, I mean. Do you follow me, Pazzbelch? Well, after you go down the stationary elevator to Ike's you will see a man with eight boulders strapped to his back. He will try to sell you one, but do not buy one because just up the road you can get four or five for free. But I see my time is up. More next week. * By the-way, have you met Prof. Milklegs van Groopsarp, for merly of the University of Hoopingup? He has invented a gadget which changes ordinary snow into mud. which is supposed to be good for people who throw rocks in their sleep. Meet me tonight at Silly Solly's and I will introduce you.

O'Rourke, Headquarters Third Fighter-. Command; ana. Private Thomas 0. Daniels, 314th Base Headquarters and Air Base Squadron, walked off proudly this week with well-dressed honors and two. War Department Theater tickets each. DOUBTFUL WINNER To Corporal Rice, the idea of being one of the most soldierly men on Drew came as a shock. "Why choose me?" he queried the WAC. "Doesn't everybody shine his shoes and shave every day? "Gosh, I wouldn't miss my morning shave. Fact is, I'm never really awake till I get that cool lather on my face." Rice, the pride of Elmira, New York, was a machine inspector there before the Army beckoned. He is a radio operator in the 4th Training Battalion, now, when he's not dreaming about that Pl'etty fiancee back in Elmira. Not to. be outdone by another training battalion, the second battalion barged through with a startled winner. T/5 Chasteen, scratching his newly-cut hair, grinned warily at the WAC. "I've only been at Drew Field for three weeks," he said, "but most of the guys here look pretty neat to me. It's really a scramble, trying to shave by a mirror in my barracks!" Chasteen was formerly a radio repairman, but Uncle Sam finds him an excellent I C maintenance man. Mrs. Chasteen, an admirer of neat khaki, still thinks he looks "much more handsome in civ vies." MORALE BUILDER The first member of the 564th to receive a designation, Schramm wasn't at all in favor of having his picture taken. "Why put my mug in as a smoothie?" he asked. "Who isn't proud enough of his own appearance, so that he takes time for a shave, a shine, and a press iob as often as possible? I'd hate to go around looking sloppy. Hurts my own morale, when I do!" After he 'was convinced that a print of his photo might go to that steady heart-beat, back in New York City, Private Schramm consented to a sitting. Schramm, a clerk in a civilian. office not so many months ago, now spends his days ground observer school. Corporal .()'Rourke, fingering his clean, starched cap, begged "Please don't take my picture! Just the other day, they called me right out of formation because my shirt-sleeves were so short!" The WAC, studying his spiek-and-span khaki, observed that the shirt must have been clean, at any rate, and that his shirt sleeves were a very nice length, this afternoon. It was a natural jump for St. Louis-bred O'Rourke, from his civilian job at Curtiss-Wright to his present operations job at Drew.
