KNOW HOW Is Taught Soldiers at Third Fighter Command Engine and Fuselage School Here. its Graduates Are Topnotch From all over the southeastern U. S. mechanics come to Drew Field to get a thorough working knowledge in the maintenance and service of Allison liquid cooled engines and Bell aircraft at the Third Fighter Command's school. Opened in October, 1942, the school has trained and graduated hundreds of mechanics now serving on World War D's many battlefronts. Uncle Sam's repair and maintenance men 'are shown how by instructors sent here by the Allison and manufacturers. In each LT. COL. Ernest F Williams, superintend ent of school, congratulates S /Sgt.

Proof of the effectiveness of close work between teacher and pupil is the fact that only 16 students (13 soldiers, three civilians) have flunked the course. The other day S/Sgt. Ray H. Hollyson of Waycross, Ga., a graduate of the 17th class, hung up the highest mark in the school's history-97.5 per cent. Super visor of the smooth-clicking institution is Lieut. Col. Ernest F. Williams. The 150-hour course is divided into halves: two weels for instruction in maintenance of the engine, two weeks for the fuselage. Men work on actual engines and fuselages, which have been cut away to show what makes them tick. Efficient operation of classrooms and laboratory carries down the line to the school's administrative department, conducted by Sgt. l;lerman Cohn, enlisted supervisor, and Cpl. James H. Selby. The school has the most complete set of records ever seen by A. C Hazen, director of Allison Service Schools.

(Photos by Base Photo Lab. ) [Printed by The St. Petersburg Times] VOLUME 2-NUMBER 36 (Excerpts from a speech to be delivered today at the Clearwater Kiwanis club by Lt. Col. H. C. Floyd.) SECOND FURLOUGH OR PERMANENT PEACE? Twenty-five years ago today the armies of the world were given a furlough. They dropped their gtins and their packs. They patched their bodies and their minds. They marched down main streets and forgot the horrors of war and reared their children and talked of cooties and of mud anQ. of mademoiselles and they visualized their children living happily-ever-after in a world made safe for democracy and free for mankind. Theirs was a dream world somewhat like a schizophrenic who sits in his chair ,with a perennial grin on his face believing he is a Napoleon or an industrial tycoon. We of this generation have the advantage of time. The mistakes made quring the Post-War Number One world should indelibly upon our of reason. For time is the great teacher, and twenty-five years have taught us accept war as an influence too strong to ignore despite the peace currents seemingly dominate during the armistice period. We must school ourselves in a basic principle; wars are not the result of one overt act. Wars do not develop simply with tne invasion of a country or the assassination of an arch-duke. Wars are bred during years of peace when nations. and peoples of those .nations refuse to accept or fight the early stagnazi germs. Science does not turn its .,:,:>''". back .. on a patient when t .he .::: early development of a deadly germ is noticed. It begiris at once to fight and its chances of winning are greater than should it wait until the entire body is afflicted. We were too firmly convinced that the First World War was the last of the great wars. We sat in our chairs and COL. H. C. FLOYI pondered national problems of unemployment, prohibition, taxation while Japan invaded China; Italy crushed Ethiopia; Spain was bathed in revolution. We tolerated the. spread of Fascism in Italy because a man with a chest and a chin made the trains run on time., We accepted Hitler because that nation was facing revolution and we could not comprehend the

A WUTC' s S-4 section h;Is furnished two men, an officer and an enlisted man, for the new Moss Hart show, "Winged Victory," the Army Air Forces' new stage attraction. Lieutenant Gilbert 0. Hermann left several weeks ago on special duty as property -officer for the show; as well as one of the featured actors. In the past, he participated in a number of Broadway and Hollywood hits. YANKWIZ By BOB HAWK. WELL HERE WE GO again. This week things are going to be different. We are going to the same thing in the same way, and to my way of thinking, anything that happens the same way twice, in the Army, is new and different ONE OF THE STRANGEST things that ever happened to me was to have the same incident happen twice. The Army is a wonderful institution (now, I'm not going to pull that old chestnut here) but it does have so many different ways to do the same thing! There is a reason for it though, and they tell us. that it is to keep the boys on their toes! (On their toes? I've seen 'em take three steps and fall flat on their. faces). THE WEATHER is getting cooler all the time, and it doesn't feel bap! Football in the air .. football players in the ground .. crowds in a dither .. me in the Guard House again Ab yes. Fall .. F ootball . Fun ... (Yes, Doctor.) SO MANY OF THE LOVLIES are marryin' up with the brutes these days that the chaplain and the civilian clergy are kept pretty busy. I wonder what it is in the Army that prompts a man and a woman to decide to do it? IN THE SUMMER all of the northerners here in Florida don't swim ... too hot ... In the winter all the southerners stay away . too cold ... Some of us do some don' t . (its easier than the GI shower summer or winter) TAMPA IS ON the mat again! The men have been paid again . So has ':fampa! The old saying (whatever it is) still applies!! Why don't the men just get smart and stay away? Have you been in the Army long? The solid citizens know that a soldier looks to getting to town merely because it is a little association with the memories of home that he holds dear. So ... the merchant says "here come the suckers ... boost it!" The plight of a soldier is a sorry one .. no kiddin'. OH, OH ... SEE HERE on the desk that you all are not co-operating to help the boys with this "lift" proposition. What can we suggest to make you car owners realize just how tough it is for a fellow to get a ride these days? We plead . we cajole ... we kid you into it ... no soap! So few are doing so much to help so many . (that statement can become a byword). w ELCOM&"BIG STUFP." Our new friends ... and we mean the big ones sure looked fine coming in the other day. How anything that big can be so beautiful ... Hope you gentlemen have a pleasant stay and lots of luck. WATCH YOUR LETTERS fellers . Check up on them and see that yours are getting where they are supposed to be getting. Thet e has been a lot buy a jeep. Bottom picture shows nursery students and teacher, who also got a ride. 3d .fC Signal Men Give Opinions On Post-War By CPL. ALBERT R. KAZARY The best laid schemes o' mice an' men Goes oft agley, And leaves us nought b,. grief an' pain For promised joy! So wrote Robert Burns-and we are all inclined to believe that Fate does weave an unthought-of .web around the of idealistic dreams. Perhaps it adds to Life's Pvt. .James Nicholson: the best I can get. T/4 .John Baldwin: I'd like to get in radio with the Merchant Marine. Boy! That'd be a racket. T/5 Norma.

Dole, Base Adjutant, acted as best man. call blows)' you are permitted entrance .. only to sit another twenty or thirty minutes while the person behind the desk makes all sorts of phone calls? It happens all the time. The answer? Either conduct all business by phone or refuse to see anyone. Time saved hfips the war effort. Phone calls are important . but if a personal contact is arranged that usually is rather important too! HAVE JUST HEARD from Rodney von Gackle's office at the Bullburger factory. He is plugging Turkal dinner for Thanksgiving. It is something different ... has something ... Turkal dinners they are more than Turkey (just what we don't know . but that's all the more fun). Style note: That' s your exit! Tied up tO the WAC radio show ... tie that together and you can get a job most everywhere . It's gonna be good! (yo' just wait and see .. there I did it again . and I'm glad). OUR NEW FRIENDS, the officers and men of the 396th, created some furore on the Base when they came in. One of the prettiest sights these tired old eyes have ever seen was the landing of these big ships. So many and so fast . and yet so darned beautiful. How a thing like that could be so deadly is one of the. amazing things that make a war what it is. The men are a swell bunch and we sincerely hope that their stay here will be a happy one. .. Sllii'CE WE HAVE.NOT been permitted the wearing of Field Jackets on and off the Base, a lot of colds have cropped up. The answer? Wear a sweater under your shirt. When you get to the Base .. or office ... or where, you simply remove tie, shirt and sweater ... replace shirt and tie ... the whole operation shouldn't take more .than 20 minutes and it will help you to divert illness. More WACs have arrived and we understand that the kids are really getting close to each other. One lady stated the other day that every time )a)u rolled over in your sleep, you landed in the next bed. Each time someone turned a door knob the furniture was rearranged ... Glad to see the kids here. They must like the place ... they are always arriving and no one has left yet. CORN: That which is yellow and grows in great quantities right here in the office. Ever sit and listen to a flock of newspaper men? They don't believe what they say, themselves, and yet they expect (or do they) others to assimilate their jargon. Oh unhappy day that I let myself be led from my straight and narrow (and it was narrow) path onto the dirty ... dirty road of news. I wish that I had become a fruit salesman or some other sane self-respecting individual rather than the morbid, broken individual that I am. The lot of an ink man is a sorry one. "Nobody loves me" (the trouble is, that I know why). FAST TALKING and self-styled lady killer, Pvt. E Ralph Emmett of the Base PRO, got a fast one thrown back at him in a Tampa restaurant the other night. "Hello, babe," he greeted a pretty waitress who floated up to wait on him. "Are you married?" "No," she answered, smiling. "Good," snapped Emmett, his eyes beamiing. "What are you doing Saturday night?" "Getting married!" she snapped.

SERGEANT QUIZ and h i s all-soldier show are still going great guns with the A WUTC units on Drew Field and outlying sub-bases. A recent night program staged outdoors for the 4th Training Battalion furnished the scenes for these pictures.

The question which recurs is, "Can I CARRY my field jacket home from the post?" FACT: According to A WUTC Bulletin No. 173 field jackets may not be worn off the base under any circumstances, except when authorized for an assigned mission outside of the post, camp or station. This means that for most officers and enlisted men, field jackets will be worn on the base only.

No. sports department can tolerate a seer like that. YOGA IS OCCULT Golf Tourney Is Postponed Because of the shift of personnel, competition for the Drew Field golf championship has been postponed. Several golfers who turned in medal scores for the opening qualifying round have been transferred. Lt. Charles Lyons, Base physical training offic.er, said the tourney will be resumed shortly. Men newly arrived on the field will be given the opportunity to enter. Yoga has condescended to come out. of retirement, after much pleading by the ECHOES editorial staff, and to use her occult powers to forecast this week's scores: But we're no dopes, either. Yoga is strictly on a trial basis. She's got to make good this week or. she will be tossed out on her can,too. Coming out of her wor'ld famous trance, Yoga has come up with these predictions for this week-end' s pigskin contests: Notre Dame will whip Northwestern to the -tune of 28-7.

Of course, soldiers who enter the ECHOES contest in the hope .of winning a free carton of cigarettes may predict their own scores . If Yogi and Yogo had .been guessing for free smokes, they wouldn't have had a cigarette between them since the start of the season. Lastweek's winners of free cartons of smokes were: Lt.
