In two years, since the Air Ser vice Command was formed on Oct. 17, 1941, it has grown from a provisional air corps maintenance command, headed by Maj. Gen. Henry J P.

New depots sprang up all over the cootinental area of the United States, and service units were trained quickly and sent into theaters of operation in all parts of the world.

They also studied the way to blow up stum!Bs. The battalion and the company commanders are very well pleased with the fine scores made on the range last week. The highest scores will be published next week. Welcome back Sgt. Lewis Holmes. We know you had a grand time on your 10-day fur lough, and we give you our congratulation. s.

Oh boy, only four days to Eagle Day. By PVT. EDWARD J. CARLIN Jr. Ripley said the word for the iricident of the Saturday afternoon softball game in Swamp Thirteen when the Fourth Training Cadre met the Fourth Headquarters Complement in the regular enlisted men'S game. Several years ago Petey Dype, hurler for the Fighting Fourths EM club was a chum and schoolmafe of Joe Pinkcava, hurler for the opponent of the day. OLD PALS This happened back in Detroit, .and when they met here at Drew, chums and mate business took a back seat as Petey' s boys slammed out a 12-1 win over the radar boys. The score is no indication of the type of game as the losers hit safely five times, topped by the. victors by one lone hit. Freepasses due to the wildness of the lilsing tosser gave the Fourth boys their edge in the third and fifth inni.ngs as they scored 3 and 7 runs on 1 and 2 hits respectively. In the strikeout department Pin kava was supreme with eight fanouts to one for Dype. This was the first meeting between the two teams, and a retum game is scheduled this coming Bathday afternoon. The Cooks from Kitchen No. 24 and the Pillrollers from Dispen-sary No. 7 are tied up with one win apiece in their bloody tussle to see which is the "goodest'.' in softball in Swamp 'Thirteen. This series is being conducted by the Physical Training Department of the Fourth Signal A W Training Battalion, and a spirited rivalry now exists between the two outfits. The first game resulted in a runaway for the Medics by an 18-4 score, while the second game went to the Hash-dispensers by a 7-3 tally. The third game is scheduled for Wednesday. Both teams will be watching the results of the other in its game with the Training Cadre Team as the Cooks will face the Cadre club Monday, and the Medics will take the Cadre on the following day on the Swamp Thirteen diamond

PAGE EIGHT DREW FIELD ECHOES, TH WAC Warriors After Strenuous WOrk f WACs, too, despite their arduous duties of war work, take time off for needed recreation. The photographer along with this pair of Drew Field women warriors and his results are pictured below. Soldiers of Drew have found the WACs efficient, capable, and determined, to do their best in winning the war; Clearwater, popular to all soldiers, is the locale of these pictures. Featured are Sgt. Mary Pedron and Pfc. Blanche McPeek, both cooks at the Drew Field WAC messhall. Sgt. Pedron believes in taking advantage of a Cook's tour while Pfc. McPeek agrees with the pleasures of sight-seeing. "That's one of the reasons we like the Army," they said. "It gives one an opportunity to see new and unique places." Recently the WACs of Drew have expanded and many jobs now handled by these efficient workers have relieved soldiers. WACs are accepted now, after the initial indoctrination from soldiers, as a vital part of the war The work they do is as important as that of an old timer, and they know the harder they work the sooner the war will end victoriously. "WHOA THERE!" BeHer carry a rear view mirror on that tandem from now on. Two WACs on a bicycle was the shot the photographer wanted, but the Gls descended like Orson Welles' Men-From-Mars and the photographer says they were 12 feet tall.

DREW FIELD ECHOESk> THURSDAY,.OCTOBER 28, 1943 PAGE THIRTEEN 4th Training the members of the Finance Detachment are now being formulated by a committee consisting of Chairman (Sgt.) Joseph Falconer, Staff Sgt. Heriry A. Hevia and Sgt. David B. Frye. Details of the affair now are being whipped into shape, and the outing has been approved by Lieut. Col. Nye and his staff. With the introduction of affairs of this nature, it is hoped a closer relationship will result among the Has Fun entire personnel of the office. Long awaited promotions for enlisted personnel were finally released by Col. Nye on October 19. Appointments follow: to T j4th, John F. Scanlon, William Q. Rhodes; to T /5th, Frederick C. Ault, Joseph J. Madej, William R. Pollen, Willis B. Sloan, Ben E. Rubrecht; to Pfc. Howard L Graham, Joseph H Kuebel, Sumner M Smitlh, John J Urann. Deciding to make her residence in Tampa is Mrs. W F. Nye, F ife of Col. Nye, .'Commanding officer. Both Col. and Mrs. Nye are natives of Vermont, where Col. Nye was engaged in auditing and accounting work. At present they are residing at 701 .Swann Avenue. NEW PQSITIONS Numerous changes in the Qffice have been made recently. The changes find M I S Albert 0. Meyer in charge of enlisted pay section, Sgt. William Rhodes in charge of accounting and check section branches. Congratulations to the men on Ds from the 50 1st SAW Co. Hqs., Cpl. Warren Hubbard, Pfc. Albert Mixon, Pvts. Louis Weisman and Edwin Harris. These men are working in the. enlisted pay section, becoming schooled in the computation of payrolls. Many thanks are in order to the 87th Bomb Sq (L) for supplying the men who did such an excellent job of policing around the area of the Finance barracks. Work was done without our knowledge and we hope our mention of it expresses our appreciation. Now that the Detachment is with the 87th Bomb Sq., a part of the. 84th Bomb Group, it. is easy to see why all the men are wearing happy smiles. Seems that th' e Sgt. in charge of "messing," T/Sgt. Richard Kiuper has put on the finest chow that has been our good fortune to get. Good cooking in the Army is the surest way to a service man's heart, and Sgt. Kiuper is doing all possible to hold to this idea. Leaving on furlough for the cold zone up Niagara Falls wa:v is our little big man of the detachment, Cpl: Joe Madej. Joe, despite his size, has an unusually capacity for work and i s one grand little fellow. Here's hoping that he runs into some snowy weather. KNOWLES IS TOP KICK The responsibilities and woes of a first sergeant ;were turned over to S /Sgt. Eugene Kn"Owles replacing S /Sgt. Frank Hilbert, who has held the position since last January. That "Man About Tampa," S /Sgt . Leonard Kessinger, has stopped, for the present, those nightly excursions to town, where he has been a regular commuter. These trips have a habit of terminating at the Madison St. entrance of the local Post Office. Transfer of M/Sgt. Weldon R. Devoe to the Veterans' Hospital 1t West Hartford, Conn., for ..:urther convalescing was effected last Thursday, when orders came through releasing him from duty with the Finance Office. Ser geant Devoe started as a corporal in the old base Finance Office in 1941. His departure is regretted by many of his fellow workers and throughout the base where he made numerous friends. Returning from furlough: Sgt. Murray Slater, locally known as "Porky," just down from good old Boston. Slater, down to a mere shadow, looks like he will go to town. on the workings of the new mess sergeant we were fortunate to get. Private John Urann, also from Boston and who spent many a cool night up North, expected to find some of the well-known Florida sunshine, but instead arrived just in time to see the weather man and the Chamber of Commerce get their signals crossed. Private First Class Frank Gantz, lower bay Romeo, made the most of a good situation at his stay in the city by the Potomac. Seems to be a shortage of men up there, and you can bet that Gantz offered little resistance to the fair sex that all but smothered him from his ar rival to departure. Latest to join the happy souls living with their better halves off the post are: -sgt. Dan Kelty, Cpls. Pete Reviglio, Bob Aldrich, William Pollen, Pfc. Joe Kuebel. We welcome WO (j.g.)
