Metcalf came upon the phantom horse (she always disappeared at night). as she eluded Pvt. Leo Thomas, an MP who was riding another horse, along the Columbus Drive section of the field. Thomas had been chasing : the wandering horse, and about all he was was working up a good sweat on his own mount. Kitchen 24 Wins Award. But Flag Flies in Night Kitchen No 24 has won the.

The standard disappeared Halloween night, the victim, -no doubt, of GI pranksters. Mess Officer Lieut.

"You are all memb'ers of this team whether you pilot the planes, repair the guns, built the airfields, maintain the radios, drive the trucks, handle the supplies, or care for the sick and wounded. Your teamwork in the past has been the basic reason for our outstanding success against the enemy. Your efforts toward greater .team work in the future will hasten the enemy's defeat and 'unconditional surrender.' Drew Driv-ers Improving On Sharing Rides The percentage of free rides offered to soldiers on Drew Field has increased during the past week! The recent eresrtion five "Share-Ride-Booths" strategic locations on Drew Field has added impetus to Lieutenant Colonel William H. Fillmore's campaign to ease the enlisted man's transportation problem. ECHOES SURVEY A second survey made by the ECHOES to determine what percentage of city-bound car operators are stopping to give a soldier a lift shows-in comparison with the first check-a 5 per cent increase in rides offered.

Venuti Metcalf planted himself in a cor'ner of the Field, while Thomas and another MP, Pvt. Nick Snyder, nudged 'the nomadic mare into the trap. Metcalf walked to th mare slowly, and when he was close enough he started murmuring into her left ear. The horse listened and sniffed Met calf intently. One of the MPs handed the lieutenant a rope. Metcalf kept up his .smooth horse 'talk, at the same time noosing the rope around her neck. Compensation, however, was realized when Actress Laraine Day ate the noon meal at the kitchen yesterday. But Laraine Day or not, A WUTC wants its Best Kitchen flag back. "Those of you who are presently identified s 'Arms and Services with the Army Air Forces' have my personal assurance that the job of converting all personnel to Air Corps and integrating the arms and services organiza-tions into functionalized Army Watch Repalf.lftCJ Air Forces organizations will be done most carefully and thorS and his band perf<)l'med at the Officers' Club last night. Venuti has earned the reputation of presenting one of the finest stage shaw, orchestr'l. in the world, according to the General Amusement Corporation. Not only will Venuti be starred at the bandshell tonight, but his entire cast also will make solo appearances for Drew troops and their dates. When she was led away, Thomas and Snyder tried to ride her. She bolted and reared. But Thomas and Snyder, who have been around horses a lot, were too quick for her. They jumped off before she tossed them into the air. By late Saturday afternoon Drew Field's ghost horse was pretty quiet. Thomas and Snyder have saddle-broken her. All that remains now is to train her. Metcalf refused to divulge just what he said that was so inter esting to the mare. There is no truth in the rumor that some private sent the flag home to his mother to hang in her kitchen. oughly over a period of time, that hop Planned all of your special skills will be utilized to the utmost, and that your opportunities for service and ill be broad---------------lened and enhanced, limited only Three Soldiers by your own abilities." lniured in Crash Free Mending for Enlisted Men Three privates of the 828th All enlisted men who have Guard Squadron were injured clothing in need of mending or h . minor alterations, or who need w en Jeep m which chevrons or insignia sewed on, were ndmg rammed a standmg may avail themselves of free bus on the Base at 11 P.M., Mon-sewing service rendered by the day Officers Wives' Sewing Club.

Venuti was a featured performer with the old Paul Whiteman Orches tia, and has made records with Bing Crosby, Whiteman, and the Andrews Sisters. V en uti was with the Whiteman crew when Bix Beiderbecke was knocking out his inviolate choruses. He also was half of the famous Venuti-Eddie Lang violin-guitar combo, which to connoisseurs of jazz was out of this world.

(Photos by Base Photo Lab. ) [Printed by The St. Petersburg Times] VOL illliE 2-NUMBER 37 RECREATION AND WAR MORA-LE (Excerpts from a speech d elhered Tuesday by Major Chester K. D e l ano, Base Specia l Service Officer, who talked at a Florida Defense Recreation Council convention in Tampa.) It happened during the early stages of our. invasion of Sicily. A young lieutenant, recently assigned to a combat unit :;J.nd under fire for the first time, was directing his men toward a_ machine-gun emplacement. The Americans were crawling under cover of darkness up a hill to ward a rocky formation which protected the enemy. Our troops had orders to take protection of boulders and set up defensive positions when ever the enemy became aware of their approach. Some fifty yards from the emplacement, the enemy opened fire. The men dug in behind boulders and set up heavy weapons whichalong with grenades-obliterated the machine-. gun nest after several minutes of Cautiously the officer and his men scrambled toward the silenced gun. As the Americans jumped into the pit, a bullet seared the arm of the lieutenant, knocking his automatic from his hand. A soldier, on his left, fired at the crouched form and a Ger ]llan fell forward, his face a crim-son patch. : The soldier who had killed the German stood holding the empty cartridge which was warm like Major Delano the body its metal had His face was strained with emotion and the lieutenant grasped his arm silently. "Here, sir," the soldier said, handing him the empty cartridge. "This is yours. It was made somewhere back in the states to save your life. It did its job." . The lieutenant is now in the United States. The cartridge from the soldier's rifle is his prized possession and the story seems a good illustration when talking on the co-operation between the community and the armed forces in meeting the needs of the service men. The parable fits the occasion because a community can easily be compared to a bullet filled with life-saving powder, or an empty bullet spent of powder and of worthless value to our service men. There are both types of communities in the United States. Some cities have spent their ammunition during early stages of the war and are now refilling the metal casing-not with powder to win the war-but with personal interests which are detrimental to the soldier and the community as a .:whole. It is the duty of every community to aid the Army in keeping morale high. Morale is another term for victory because without morale an Army ceases to be an effective fighting unit. The community of tomorrow will be com posed of the military men of today. The Army Special Service Branch has the task of supervising the soldier's recreational program on the post. This is comparable to directing entertainment in its numerous phases in a city of identical size. There are numerous definitions of recreation but I prefer Webster's term: "An act of recreat ing." For recreation does recreate. When a soldier goes to a movie; when he attends a USO social; when he joins a group at the YMCA swimming pool-he is recreating himself. He forgets for a few hours the grim of war. He relives the thrill of social intercourse . And, we must consider the various types of individuals, who desire a specific . type of recreation and are not satisfied without it. There is need for larger numbers of girls for dances and social affairs at the Base. Church services and religious aff;iirs are highly important . religion is a powerful force . we would have a stronger Army if religion were a dominant force in every soldier. The American soldier is the most deadly fighter in the w _orld . he has been taught since childhood to compete against his school mates . he has learned to appreciate com petition in sports which is so highly adaptable in this war. We are now constructing five large night sports centers. We should have luncheons and discussions between civilian and soldier members of iden tical nationality. We should bring together men who were of the same profession or trade before the emergency. We are in need of professors of mathematics or languages to devote a few hours each week to instruction at Drew. Two years ago there was little recreation either at a new camp or a city. Now., we have progressed to a high point, but we cannot relax.

RUMOR: Is it true that the arms and services now operating as a part of the Air Forces will be taken into the Air Corps, and that AW soldiers will no longer be in the Signal Corps? FACT: According to Capt. Sidney Kessler, assistant adjutant of A WUTC, all personnel of A WUTC will become part of the Air Corps. A recent letter announces that "in the near future"-the date is no more definite than that-all arms and services serving with the Air Forces will become Air Corps personnel. While there is no specific mention of officers in the letter, it is assumed from the use of the words "all personnel" that officers of all branches and services of the Air Ji'orces will be transferred to the Air Corps at the same time. Communications to \this eolurun must bear, for publication, the correct name and organization of the writer. Short letters are most interesting, and the right is reserved to c1:1t letters when space limitations require. Wants Own Pinups :Dear Sir: In the ECHOES of Nov. 4, there. appeared a very nice and very interesting article about pinup girls. Ah! That's something we .Gis should have more often and more of! Let's tell and show the boys on the field that we don't need Hedy Lamarr, Rita Hayworth, or Lana Turner. to pin up beside our bunks. Let' s show the guys we have some very lovely pinup girls of our own, waiting for us. Thanks to our editors, we can say that this our camp paper. We can send home a paper to which we ourselves have contributed. Boys, let's all send in more "billfold girls" to the ECHOES. The girls back home will be proud and happy .to see that we are thinking of them. I'd like to start the parade by sending in a photo of a swell girl friend of mine. Her name is Miss Gloria Cooper. I'd be awfully happy, if she were to see her picture in our newspaper. PFC. MARIO BODILLO e Mari o, your "billfold girl" meets with our approval-and how! You will find her photo just a few pages further on. Thanks.-Ed. Misses Drew and Echoes Dear Sir: Several weeks ago, I left Drew Field for Camp Kilmer, New Due to circumstances. beyond my control, I arh now a patient in the hospital, and will be here for some time. To tell you the truth,-r miss Drew Field, and everything in it-especially the ECHOES. This camp doesn't have any form of newspaper whatsoever . It gets awfully boring during the day, hardly doing anything at all. Therefore, I would consider it a great favor if you would be -so kind as to send me several. back issues of your paper. I'm .very anxious to know what has been going on at Drew since I left. It's an up-and-coming field. Thank you very kindly. PVT. ELI BRODWIN, Camp Kilmer, New Jersey. e Thanks for your continued interest, Brod win. Your back copies of the ECHOES are on their way to you, and we've placed your name on our mailing list. Hope you'll be very well soon.-Ed. Patient-Gardeners? Dear Sir: I am a patient at the station hospital. Re cently, all ambulatory were requested, under a new program, to report for lectures and calisthenics. I've been thinking it might be. a good idea for the same men to be allowed to start a victory garden, or a flower garden, in the vacant area ad]oining the individual wards. The benefits derived would be many fold. Not only fresh air and sunshine, but a lesson in horticulture, too, would be fprnished the men. Sincerely yours, PVT. I. J MARANZ. Editor,. The Drew Field Echoes Dear Sir: We guys in Company A, 588th Battalion, want to know what has happened to Sergeant Friendly' s interesting orientation lectures. Have !they been cancelled? We enjoyed them, and miss them much. SGT. JOHN ANDERSON According to the schedule laid out for Sergeant Friendly, only lectures one and two., both of which you have already heard, are delivered to 588th. However; any fellows in your outfit, or any other outfit, are welcome to attend any of Sergeant Friendly's evening lectures. By calling 497, y.ou may at any time obtain a listing of Sergeant Frie.ndly's lectures, including dates and places.-Ed. Donnahue Again Editor: Thank you very much for publishing the poem I submitted to you. It does any "poet's" heart good to see his name published with his efforts. I'm taking another chance, .and sending this nostalgic piece to you. Hope you'll like it. CPL. OLGAV. DONNAHUE DAD'S OLD PIPE Just a oorn cob pipe That lies on the stand. A little bit smelly, But Dad thought it grand. Dad never 'spent money On such trifles as pipes; But always was contented VVith necessities of life. Just a corn cob pipe Dad whittled one day That he always smoked Until he went away. That old corn cob pipe I will always treasure It wasn't much, but It was Dad's only pleasure.

He's spending his evenings reposing upon his bunk in B-4 doing fancy embroidery -and needlework on pillowcases. Another shakeup in jobs. Sgt. "Frankhouse" Shields is new KP Pusher at the Chow House. John _Calitri replaced him as Bull gang bossman. Assistant bossman is John V. (Slavedriver) Eaton. A tip to Capt. Sharkey. When you can't locate Sgt. Abe (MeFix-Urn) Sancton at the Flight Section, likely he'll be climbing around on some roof repairing the chimney or fixing something.

"I;Io'\V' toes it look now?" he asked, 4.'1(isting the gleaming instrument 'in the sun. "I used the same just now, that I used on my shoes this morning. Theystililook nice, don' t they?" The WAC-agreed enthusiastically. Purta hails from Schenectady, N. Y., where he has been sadly missed at the school of music .since Uncle Sam whistled at him., Just in from Washington, Corporal Airgood expressed many compliments on the best-dressed contest. "Of course," he assured the mystery girl, "I didn't ever expcet to have you pick me. I don't look -any better today than I ever do. A shave and a shine and a clean outfit is an everyday occurence with me." The Pitcairn, Pa., boy hasn't had a cha,nce to look over Drew Field WACs and Tampa glamor girls, as yet. An electric welder in civilian life, Airgood is a mechanic in the 396th. "Aw, you're kiddin' me!" exclaimed Pfc. Komula, .. when the WAC asked for his photograph. "Imagine--callin' me a smooth guy, just 'cause I shaveJ this morning! I shave every morning, and not because I want to look like a pretty boy, either. Looking like a tramp never did anything for anybody's morale, so I do my best to please my little wife, by dolling all up. Silly, but she loves it." An Ontenagon, Michigan man, Hanlt doesn't find that a career with Uncle Sam has altered his life very much. A a little extra effort will turn you out, attired as these model soldiers are. Your company is counting on you. Do you measure up? ASTP, Cadets Beckon ld FC Signal Soldiers By PFC. GILBERT JOHNSON This week we extend our best wishes to Al Kazary, former writer for this column, and also to Sgt. Hanisee, who left recently for ASTP and Aviation Cadet, respectively. ,We should hear some tall stories soon when Corporals McGee and Hogenson return from their three day pass, these two popular lads make quite a pair. Our company has a very fine artist in the person of Corporal Willard Lunte, his pencil sketches adorning the walls of our radio room have caught the eye of all. Lunte can sketch accurate likenesses of anyone from the Sad Sack to the most well known public figures. He is now working on one pf General Marshall. Corporal Kremin and Private Hecht are now on the well known wagon. Hecht says his trouble is the boys from the motor pool and Kremin has a weakness for picking on undersized MPs. Has anyone noticed the smile on the face of Private Kause lately' ? The reason is his pal, AI Oeltjen, has come back from detached service. We notice that well liked Serg eant Big Stud Pittman, is getting that middle aged bulge. Maybe a few of those burpies that Senor Bogue advocates would help. It is rumored that Corporal Williams can carry 200 pounds easily. If you don't believe it, just ask Pernosky. 'l'he regular writer of this column will soon be back from spending a fu!.'lough in good old Philly so Yours Truly will sign off till then. Among the notables out in the calesthenics progr.am recently have been: T/Sgt. Allen, T/Sgt. Crump, S/Sgt. Stepp, Sgt. Gold and some others. Looks like Cpl. Fognano is really getting the 314th boys on the Ball. The Base Statistical Office seems to be the most unpopular place on Drew Field these days, since the new ration change has come into effect. Lt. Scott, however, is still holding up his head, and hopes to come through the victor. SAVING CASH! S /Sgt. William M. Miller, of the Base Stat Office, is a stay-athome boy these days. The reason is that he intends to take a furlough soon and wants to be in good shape. All enlisted men who plan to eat Thanksgiving Day Dinner on the Base, and with the 314th Mess Hall especially, will probably have the following menu before them: Roast Turkey with dressing and gravy; cranberry sauce; mashed potatoes; corn, buttered peas; tomatoes and lettuce; crisp celery; assorted pickles; hot rolls; butter; pumpkin pie; ice cream; coffee; apples, grapes; candy and nuts. The added attraction of cigarettes to each and every man will also be featured. It has been learned from reliable sources that very nice brealtfast a.nd supper menus are planned. All men on duty Thanksgiving Day, and those off duty, are urged to attend. At the request of Sgt. Carter, our Mail Clerk, the following announcement is m ade: "If you want your mail, fellows, for the love of Pete, come to the mail room and pick it .up! This includes p apers, magazines, Yanks and anything else." Can it be that our very own S g t. DeFelice is going. to be a groom? Rumor has it that he is buying things for a civilian employee in Base Personnel. Ser geant Gold has been designated Ring Bearer with T/Sgt. Allen as Flower Girl. More developments will be published as soon as available. About the post-war education plan ... great to see a 2d Training soldier, a Brooklyn man at that, Pvt. Frank W.

The fina l score was 6-3. The winners got off to an early lead in the first inning, scoring four runs in a fat rally that featured a round of timely blows, including left fielder Snow's double with a man on. The other two tallies came in the last inning, as Noltner, the 584th' s curve artist, showed signs of weakening. The 584th' s big stanza was the fourth when they combined a Texas-league safety, an error at second, an overthrow at first, and an infield single to produce a couple of runs. For rest of the time, Dype had the situation well in hand. Besides the two pitchers, who both performed creditably, special commendation goes to Sgt. Kaish of the 4th and Pillilierre of the 584th. The former turned in a fine defensive game back of the plate and the 584th third baseman came up with two or three stops and throws which were lulus. Morale Booster In Rescue Work Keeps 'Em Flying One of the best morale builders among the American fighting forces is the effort with which each soldier, sailor or marine tries to assure the personal safety of his buddies. This morale factor is also a strong point with our Allies, as evidenced by the following incident reported by the British: A fighter pilo t returning from the target had engine trouble over the English C1annel, and had to bail out. The sea was rough and the weather bad, yet before he was finally picked up, 173 flights were sent out to look for him, Though an additional plane a n d pilot were lost in the rescue efforts, authorities considered it worthwhile-not because the one pilot was saved, but because of the morale factor.

Listed by Seer Running true to the form of her dizzy predecessorsYogi and Yogo, Seerel'!s Yoga has been bounced as a football p r e d i c to r for the ECHOES after only chance. 'fhe ninth cousin once removed from Y ogo and sister-in-law of Yogi and related vaguely on the distaff side to John Fut de Boomstaff, made her debut and exit in one issue. Yoga pulled the biggest pi&>kin faux pas of the century. She had listed Duke. as tangling with the Ja-ck sonville Air Base team; when the Blue Devils really took on and defeated Virginia, 49-0 . If the female dope c an't everi get the right teams playing each other, how can we expect her to predict the winner? We can't, so she's ousted. She also was off the beam on the Penn-North Carolina. game. A dame who's supposed to have all the mystic powers as Yoga should have foreseen that result. So it is with dubious pleasure that we hire a new prognosticator-a real flesh-and-blood human who 's supposed to know his stuff about all sports. He is Lt. Cha.rles W. Ly{)ns, Base physical training officer. Lyons' predictions for this week-end's contests are: Dartmouth 28, Princeton 0; Duke 21, North Carolina 6 ; Pur due 27, Indiana 7; Nebraska 13, Iowa 0; LSU 20, Tulane 0; Michigan 20, Ohio State 0; Notre Dame 21, Iowa Seahawks 7; Villanova 35, Temple 0; Texas Christian 13, Rice 6; New York 28, Chicago Cards 13. You don't have to ag.ree with the lieutenant, especially on the Villanova-Temple s qua b b I e. That's a grudge game., with the outcome generally being unde dded until the final whistle. If the lieutenant flops on the predictions, he, too, will be bounced-but solidly. So complete the contest blank and mail it to the Contest Editor. The envelope must be postmarked 2 p m Saturday.
