Baker saw their possibilities, encouraged them and makes their special arrangements of lively, late tunes. Sally had been modeling in New York before she came to the attention of Baker. Doris had been on radio, was a choir director and appeared in "Naughty Marietta," "No, No Nanette" and "Robin Hood." Phyllis studied music four years and took dramatics at Westport Summer Theater. Rose studied voice in New York and had been a singer in clubs. Arlene, a graduate of Rochester university, was soloist with the glee club. She came to New York as a secretary, but took up popular singing for clubs. BLACKBOARD MARVEL Johnny Hyman is a vaudeville headliner known as "the blackboard marvel," and one of the original of the marvel mentalist performers. His mind works at break-neck speed, doing lightning fast calculations and amazing things with words, which he flashes on his blackboard from current and topical items suggested to him by the audience. He makes the blackboard a veritable board of magic. Tommy Trent, programmed as one of the best puppeteers in show business, combines a remarkable skill of manipulation with a k een comedy sense.

(Photos by Base Photo L a b ) [Printed by The St. Petersburg Times] VOLUME 2-NUMBER 3 5 LETTER FOR'YOU AND FAMILY This is a utumn 1943, the beginning of the fifth year of the European phase of the. war.. Through long and horrible years the people of Europe have been in contact with enemy. The Army of the United States,. according to General George C. Marshall, Chief of Staff, is veloping the existing military machines "to the highest degree of efficiency in preparation of the great battles to come." But the great battles are still to be fought and are still to be won. For over one year and during a period in which the armies_ of the United States have met some reverses, a recruiting cam-, paign has been. in full swing to obtain women for service with the Army. However, during that. year only a fraction of the assigned quota has been filled. I believe that the women of America do not. know of the necessity for their services in the military and naval forces of our country. I believe they do not want the men of America to carry the full bur-den of lhe war alone: I believe that the women not been told precisely why it is that their contribution can in many cases be. made only in the armed service. I do not disparage the magnificent work which is being done by the civil service workers now with. the war department, but the job of training an army air force is primarily a military job. We cannot train soldiers in a civilian atmosphere. Therefore; inasmuch as we have reached the bottom of the manpower barrel, we must have military woman power. I say we mu.st have because the war department has sent out now a call for 600,000 WACs to be recruited within the next 12 months. At the rate of last year's recruitment, the job of obtaining the war department quota will be a sixyear job. Can it possibly be that men now iri Englal)d awaiting the day of invasion will be forced to wait six years for the women of America to decide to do their duty? I know that here hi this country,. protected by strong arms which we have sent abroad, it is easy to forget the time it is -war time. But out upon the battle front. s, time is ticking .away and every second counts and all men know that at any moment death is ready to seize them. It must be remembered now that America is not just what we see liere at home. We have millions of men face to face with the enemy, and face to face with disaster, and it has been a principle in this country that wherever our men are, there too is America. All we are ssking of our women is that they give of their Their labor lJlay prevent a lot of bloodshed. As General "Stonewall" Jackson put it when he was taken to task once for the rigorous methods by which he trained his army, "I sweat them the more tonight that I bleed them the less tomorrow."

Absolutely not! Salute only the passengers, if any. sad Sack Contest Nears Deadline, Soldiers Seek Win Sick men can't fight. Venereal disease, combatable with sound knowledge, took a larger toll of lives during World War I than did actual combat. brew Field's program of candid instruction in the means of combating venereal disease has been very successful. Saturday, Capt. A E Abraham, Venereal Disease Control Officer, announced that the third .Noncommissioned Officers' Venereal Disease Control course will begin Wednesday, November 10 It will continue each consecutive Wednesday from 8 : 10 a.m. to 10 a.1n The program will include lectures, movies, lantern slides, discussions, conferences and instruction on the use of printed materials. Noncommissioned officers chosen or given permission by their commanding offiCers to attend the course will, in turn, instruct the men in their unit after they have :received their own diplomas as noncommissioned venereal disease control officers. When the contraction of syphilis or gonorrhea results in hospitalization, your unit will time, lo'se efficiency and be forced to break up trained teams. Morale will suffer with the loss of men to your organization.

Those of you who have saluted officers who were driving note that your salutes were usually returned. But this was chiefly a matter of courtesy, and two wrongs don't make a right. Yank Cavalrymen Fight Nazis in Hills ITALY. (CNS) -American volunteer cavalrymen-most of them cowboys or ex-farmersare operating on the Italian front, the Allied command has announced. The cavalrymen, known as the Provisional Moun ted Reconnaissance Troops, are the American answer to the tough terrain. Most of the horses were captured but a few were shipped from the Unite d States. WELL, HERE WE GO AGAIN, only this time the time is really. the thing to write about. I have had some close calls writing this mess and getting it in on time, but this is the first time that I have written it from a blimp out over the Gulf. I have been trying to get b ack to earth .for the last .. two days, and so far am still caught_ between two clouds. SEE WHERE THE "RIDE" situation is really beginning to show some results. We see cars stopping every day to give the lads a lift. Don' t let it be treated as a fad. Keep up the good work, and keep 'em happy. EVER NOTICE THE WAY some of the fellows live? Wonder what their home life was. This is no Slam remark, but no kid ding the way some of the birds walk around and talk around, and slouch. around ... well, even a dog keeps clean! SPEAKING OF KEEPING CLEAN, noticed that the word regarding the appearance of the men has hit home. Don't know whether it is the advent of the 'WACs or what ... but the men are beginning to learn that a shoe will take a polish. And they will, too (I tried it once). 0 THAT OLD "CHESTNUT" about "Heaven help a sailor on a night like this" is true enough, but ... what about the, poor soldier? Any night following pay day at Drew is "a night 1ike this" so far as some of the local merchants are concerned. If something can' t be. clone to help the sdld-i.er in Tampa instead of fleecing the guy that i s bringing the business in . this column is going to name some names and name some places that are doing just this. There will come a day when the fighting man is really going to fight and I don' t mean for the people who are running some business in the country today. I know that I for one would verv much like to see the bird who is trying to get ricl1 in a hurry of{ of the Arll}Y, run right out of business. (They say that the only way to let a bloom' ing flower die is to igriore it ... don't feed it . don' t tend to it.) This could be done. HUMAN INTEREST: A flier recently returned from overseas, and landed at an eastern base. Prior to his leaving for F. D. he had borrowed a ten from a bunk chum at his school. The plane landed ... the officer dism{)unted ... the crew chief walled over to the ship . the .officer dltg in his pocket . took out (yep, you guessed it) a ten, and said, "Hello, George, here 'tis." The chief took 'it and said "Thanks, Captain." They shook hands. Hadn't seen each other in almost a year. P: S.-Understand that the "ten" went to work that same night. THE FEMALE WOLF: (Yes, we have 'em)" is being watched. (Are we kidding?) LET'S GET TOGETHER on this business of uniform. The Base bulletin says one thing and everybody d oes the opposite. (Is that nice?) Either all disregard the thing, or let's all do what we are told to do. I AT LAST WE HEAR from the man of the woods (he says he likes it out there) that the Golf Course is really a thing of beauty. (Ask the Editor ... he spends all of his time there.) A couple of lads. have volunteered to work out there at the Rocky Point show place and as soon as their names are learned they will be in print .. and I mean BIG print. A rose to them this week. SPEAKING OF THE GOLF COURSE: So many have asked the paper about the place that they (the paper) has asked me to put facts in print so that even you can learn. Do you know that over 80 tons of hay (and we mean hay that is hay) was toted away? There are 100 (count 'em) acres out there. It is an 18-hole defilade and for this who saw it when it had growing pains ... please be a d vised that the "baby" is doing right fine. SINCE JOHN FUT DE BOOMSTAFF has stopped off on the road to that place ... life isn't worth iiving. Wonder if he'll ever find his way back? SALUTE: THIS WEEK let's give a salute to a man who has helped the men at Drew. His name is Vansistine and he is a captain in the Signal Corps. Behind his back he is known as Captain Van ... one swell guy. (Not GI but it's the truth.) So remember-if you are walking, and a car driven by an officer passes, you should not salute the driver. However, if there are others in the car and you recognize any of them as superior officers, you should salute, and they should return your salute. That's the rule: a driver does not salute; others in the car or pedest.rians are expected to follow the usual rules on saluting. Captain Van ... this week's salute. 'Grasshopper' 8 And now, to get back to the contest, to give an appropriate 1 name to the unmilitary character who does everything wrong. Yol! have until Nov. 7-just three more days-to submit your name suggestions, and the winner. will appear in the Nov. 11 issue of the ECHOES. Among the more recent batch of entries are such "handles" as "Drewpy," "Giggy," Pvt. G. F Yough," "Pvt. Eeza Mess," "Pvt. I. M Wrong," and "Pvt. Justa Jerk." Do you have a better suggestion? If so, mail the accompariyi.ng blank to Lt. Samuel Cooper, in care of the ECHOES, Base Special Service Office, 8th St. near Ave. B and perhaps your entry will win the $2 book of War Department Theater tickets.

They say that beside eggs and bacon and all of the usual things, he slips in little requests he hears the lads ask for. A lad from Boston h a d a big plate of the beans from Boston just because he happened to mention it once. Rank means nothing there. The brass gets just as hungry as the OD, a.nd everybody not only enjoys the fellowship and the food, but the thought behind Father Elslander' s gesture. (It is nice to hear of things like this). THE DIMJ:\IIED OUT TOWNS of the west coast are no longe r S O dim. It' s a funny sensation to drive along a road a ll lighted up like a tree of the Christmas variety. One has to readjust the optics to receive such blazon glory. I saw Cleanv-ater for the first time last night. (Maybe that S ong "When The Lights Go On Again" could be sung at this point.) At least we can all wotk just that muc h harder to make sure that the lights all over the world will pe blazing again soon. THE BIRDS THAT HAVE NOTHING to do but tear doors dow n and break windows, ( oh yes, it happens) will soon have a c hance to break other things. (Little pieces of granite from large ones). I THINK that I hear the soft beating of wings which means that m y carrier pigeon has at las t come home to daddy. I go now. The sun i s just beginning to set, and the breeze is wafting the ethereal scent of food (that rationed stuff, too) to these tired old nostrils. (Well, if you had to smell this stuff as you wrote, yours would, too). 'Til later, stay happy, and remember if we all stick together instead of trying to stick each other, the war will be a memory much sooner.

PAGE SIX DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1943 . FIGHTER BOMBER CREW listens intently as 1st. Lieut. Everett van Metre, 51 9th Squadron intelligence officer, briefs them prior to takeoff from Drew Field on simu lated attack against the enemy. . S-2 Gives TheiR Lo"ftldo"ftln "Watch for the strength of aircraft, status of air fields and other military installations along this flightline. Your course is 314 degrees. Prirp.ary target for today will be Ersatz ville." A ring of fighter pilots encircles the squadron in telligence officer, their minds concentrated on the map in front of them and the words of S-2. The scene might well be a briefing room at a USAAF headquarters in North Africa, or England, or Guadalcanal. It is, practically, as simulated by First Lieut. Everett van Matre and personnel of the 519th Fighter Bomber Squadron Intelligence; This is all part of an intensive training program to ready the squadron for combat operations against the enemy. THE TARGET. The "briefing" stressed in this training means outlining to the pilots the essential elements of a combat m1sswn. This includes information concerning the target-where it is, what it looks like, how best to approach on the attack. Then there is information even more vital to the pilots -that of where enemy antiaircraft is located,. its range and field of fire, and where enemy fighter opposition will be encountered. The combat intelligence section of an Air Force unit mu.st constantly know the en e m y situation, his strength and weaknesses, his vital.points and his potentialities, and this information he must pass on to the fighter-bomber pilots in the briefing session before an attack mission. Today. the scene is Drew Field and the enemy simulated. Tomorrow or the next day the enemy will be very real and the scene any one of a thousand places where the Army Air Forces are hitting the enemy. S-2 TELLS 'EM 'But when the pilots of the 519th, or any Air F()rce squadron, go into action, the way will be clearer because of the preparation given them by rntelligence. For every day finds the pilots of the 519th squadron flying simulated combat missions, planned and briefed by S-2. From Drew they fly their deadly fighter bombers to airfields in the southern United States, make mock attacks, and fly evasive routes home. Thus, Intelligence gets the pilot into an offensive and combat state of mind and training long before he goes overseas. High standards of training like this are today making the Army Air Forces highly successful in their world-wide operations against the Axis. 46TH GOES FOR ECHOES THE ECHOES is top reading for 46th Bomb Group officers and men.

In announcing the sharp decline in accidents, Third Air Force Headquarters, at Tampa, cited the work of the Office of Flying Safety, established in September, 1942, to cope with problems arising from the need for an accel/ training program at Drew SHARE rr WITH A SOLDIER . SHARP DECLINE In the year the office has been in operation, the accident rate has dropped from 3.12 per thousand .hours of flying to L3 per thousand hours.

We are constantly trying to out-guess the enemy and to deceive him of our intentions, thereby mak ing our attack more potent. The usual methods used for camouflage, which includes using paint, flat tops, drapes and natural cover, are excellent means for confusing the enemy; and at the same time, we . must _realize that he is also clever and will use similar methods, and will not fal for the same ruse many times. HERE'S -DIFFERENCE The difference between a dummy and a decoy is difficult to define. A decoy might be anything or any group of things to confuse the enemy by indicating greater strength of planes or installations than actually exists. The dummy might be anything or group of things to confuse the enemy by augmenting the concealment of the stationary object it represents. A dummy air field and the use of -an airdrome decoy have already proven a most effective means to deceive the enemy. A false airdrome creates an pressed with the destruction that he is doing.

Penkake was co!nmended by a real installation. To establish large-scale dummy installations, such as an airdrome, it is necessary to use a number of, or a combination of dummies and decoys-dummy buildings to represent hangars and housing for personnel; duinJ;pY roads, runways and taxiways; dummy planes, guns, and all other items which are necessary for the operation of an airdrome. Such installations, properly laid out and operated, afford excellent deception through camouflage.

To achieve a reduction of nearly 60 percent in the accident rate in the face of these obstacles, the Third Air Force has employed a scientific plan to prompt flying safety. EXPERTS.

LELAND H. MAKER Some 30 soldiers crowded around Chaplain Cordell out in the open, for it was Sunday and time for worship to begin. He took for his Scripture Lesson, "Forgive them, er, for they know not what they do." In his sermon he tried to bring out the same idea. "We must not hate our ene mies," he cried, while his eyes were filled with tears, "we must hate and stamp out what they stand for." One eyed him all through the sermon. He fidgeted, and several times seemed on the verge of saying something. When the sermon was ended, he could contain himself no longer. "It's all very well for the chaplain to speak that way," he cried, jumping up from his seat and facing his comrades seated on the ground. "He hasn't someone out there fighting for him, someone who may never come back. He hasn't seen his own brother riddled with machine-gun bullets as he floated toward earth in a parachute. He hasn't heard of some of his kin being mercilessly bombed while they lay wounded in a hospital. He hasn't heard of them being strafed from the sky while they were evacuating a city. If he could. know just one of these things I mention, I bet he would hate them with all the intensity that I hate them. A profound silence fell upon the group. The Chaplain of the 50lst stood for a moment dumbfounded, as if he didn't know what steps to take next. Perhaps for that one fleeting instant, he felt the same way as the young excited soldier. Then he suddenly shook himself and said, "Come into my office for a moment, soldier, will you?" There was no anger in his voice; just a simple statement. The soldier hesitated, looked at the group, glanced at the chaplain, then followed him confidently into a tent, set up as an office. "Sit down," said Chaplain Cordell, "let me tell you a story. "In a small country town lived a young lad, one of the finest. He joined the Air Corps soon after Pearl Harbor. He fought for several n;tonths, with credit to himself. At one time he was forced down into the ocean. He managed to keep himself afloat by hanging on to a piece of wreckage. But the pilot who had shot him down wasn't satisfied. He dived several times, his machinegun blazing, but each time the one in the water managed. to duck under the water and avoid the bullets. So the pilot dropped a bomb. That's a true story; I saw i.t." "Yes," said the soldier, but he wasn't so sure of his ground now, "that' s just what I mean ... The chaplain handed him a picture of a handsome young pilot. The inscription, "To Dad, with all my love," was written across the bottom. The soldier looked up, and his eyes met the chaplain' s a 9-uestion .ing look. Chaplain C?rdell nodded silently. The soldier laid the picture on the desk and quietly left the tent.

PAGE TWELVE DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 46th Group Picks as BOY SCOUT HAROLD BEASLEY, 13, has been adopted by the 46th Bomb croup as its mascot, and he is as happy as an East Side kid just selected batboy for the New York Yankees. Like most boys, Beasley is airplane-happy. His brother, (j. g.) W. C. Beasley, a pilot, has been reported missing in ac tion in the Southwest Pacific. LIEUTENANT COLONEL Robert V DeShazo, group commander, explains to Beasley the meaning of the 46th's Beasley became mascot cifter he had written a letter to Third Air Force Headquarters, which referred him to Drew Field. A BOY'S DREAM comes true. Beasley gets the coveted opportunity of sitting at the controls of a real warplane. E x plaining the controls of the A-20 is Captain Georg e C. McEihoe, commanding officer of the 50t h Fighter Bomber Sq., who saw much action in Africa. Beasley's brother-in-law, Captain B B. Johnson, is a B-26 pilot formerly stationed at MacDill Field. Drew Field Quiz Show National Mag What goes on at these "Sergeant Quiz" programs you've been hearing so much about? Many Drew Field soldiers have attended one or more [;) sessions o f this interesting new feature, spon '=H sored by the War Orientation Department of :.;=_: A WUTC, and have agreed that the program is both entertaining and instructive. ,,:,: This week's issue of Collier's carried an ;') illustrated feature written by Sgt. Innis Brom \'; field, describing the "Sergeant Quiz" program "'-'' as it was formerly conducted at Camp Kohler, Calif., where it originated, and as it is now new ':) here. The program has been transferred to. Drew .' Field, where Lt. Fred Babbin and T /Sgt. Fred Friendly conduct it under the direction of Brig. '\ Gen. Stephen H. Sherrill, Commanding General of A WUTC. Because the program here is the same one which was formerly held at Camp \'[ Kohler, with a few innovations, such as cartons [:} of cigarettes for members of the winning team, and a door prize for the nearest correct answer to a question asked everyone in. the audience, the ECHOES has received permission from Collier's to reprint the article. 3 PROGRAMS THIS WEEK The "Sergeant Quiz" stage shows began here last week, and the schedule for the remainder of this week, liste d with units which will partici ) pate, follows: .. Today, 1 p .m., Rec. Hall _No. l-2d Train-ing Bn. Friday, 8:30 a .m., Rec. Hall N o 1-5th Training Bn., Hq. & Sig. Co., 9th Fighter Command, 552d, 59 1st, and Det. 27 Friday, 7:30 p .m., Hall No. 2-Co. A and Hq. & Hq., 4th Training Bn., 576th, 584th, 553d, 569th and 765th. The article taken from Collier' s follows: "VOT iss your serial number?" growls Tech Sergeant ;Friendly, putting on a thick, menacing .. German accent. "How many machine guns in ; ; :::; your company? Vot iss your rank?" Private Bill ;::''[ Jones, up to bat on the Sergeant Quiz program, ; knows that if he' s taken prisoner in battle, he is allowed to tell his name, rank, and serial number only. Any other questions Sergeant Friendly .. asks him he regretfully declines to answer. Basic training in the Army isn' t all foxholes and ::( rifle marksmanship. or KP and calisthenics. For besides turning out the best-equipped and [ ;\ best-trained human weapon in the world, the / U S. A. Army of 1943 is sporting the world's ii best-informed soldier. The Army Orientation [:';: Course helps do it. Today, when Private Jones r: of Yankton, South Dakota, gets an A P .O. ad dress, his brains are as ready to "go across" as his reflexes. :.,:, Bill knows, for instance, that China was first to go to war with the Axis, and that Czechoslo vakia fell to Hitler because of "appeasement." ')[ The orientation lectures Bill heard during === gave him the background of the war he' s goi.ng to win.. He admits he wasn't sure six months ago j'ust when or why Grea t Britain declared .. ,:.: war on Germany. Now he has a good grasp of ({ World War II chronology, and a pretty well f; rounded notion of what the democracies are up (i to. And up against. Bill also knows a lot about l[) the Four Freedoms. [/[KEEPING TAB ON ENEMY I.Q.s was this idealful noncom who gave birth to the "Sergeant Quiz" program, pet product of the Orientation Branch. Here's how the show works. Every Saturday morning at 9 o'clock, a com,,,., pany of Signal Corps trainees double-times ')j into the post's War Department theater and {! seats itself in four sections-according to platoons. The boys have just completed their basic (; Army training and are ready to be tested on:=) what they know. Instead of a long written exii amination, the men battle for honor and glory :fl on a fast-moving quiz program. This is cut :,) neatly from the pattern of radio I.Q. contests; '''''i to fit the subjects .:t Sergeant Friendly (now of AWUTC Special Service-Ed) takes the meaty part of Sergeant1 Quiz. He picks a tea m of ten men at random from each platoon and gathers them around him on the stage. ANSWERS ARE GRADED One at a time the contestants stand up be fore the mike and the footlights to do or die for the old platoon. Sergeant Quiz fires a hundred and twenty questions at them in rotationthirty questions per team, three questions per man. A jury of three officers keeps score, awarding five points for a perfect answer, down to a goose egg for a miss. At the end of the show there's loud applause .for the platoon whose quiz kids knock down high score. One contestant is alwq.ys delegated to perform as a sentry on night guard duty. He has to challenge Sergeant Quiz, who impersonates anyone from a saboteur caught red-handed to a rookie who can' t locate his barracks. The encounter doesn' t always result in .five points for the contestant p l a;ying guard. He'll be graded off if ye yells "Halt!" in a bashful whimper, of if he lets the sergeant "pull his rank" on him. "Who do you think you are, telling me to halt?" Sergeant Quiz sometimes barks. "I'm a sergeant. You're nothing but a private." The poor sentry is apt to be snowed under by this kind of talk, and as many as three or four contestants may go down to defeat before one steps up who' s ready to shoot first and be intimidated afterward. Another regular feature is making "blanket rolls." Men from each do this simultaneously. They have to work fast and in close quarters, each man rolling up his blanket and tent pegs inside his "shelter half" (half the canvas for a two-man Army pup tent), turning out a tight, compact roll. The judges then toss these in the air to see what will happen when they hit the deck. A badly made roll will spill open at once, causing untold embarrassment. The platoon whose man flubs his "blanket roll" is a disgruntled platoon. WHEN FOUR-BITS BOUNCES Perhaps the most ambitious stunt of all on the Sergeant Quiz show is m aking up an Army bed G I. style. In preparation for this, the company brings to the theater a regular Army cot, plus sheets, blankets, comforter, pillow and pillow case. And at stage center, before the eyes of all, a man from one of the teams is detailed by Se1 'geant Friendly to make up the bed in Out at Camp Kohler, California-the West-the traditional highly involved Army manner. ern Signal Corps Replacement Training Cen-When the job is done, the judges come forward ,.,:.: ter-Army Orientation is going great guns.
