MESS!! -69th Musician fetes Birthday . 2 Different Days By S/SGT. JOHN F. SUSZYNSKI It is not uncommon for twins to celebrate separate birthdays, but the 69th AAF Band has a member who celebrates the occasion of his birth, without the aid of a twin, on two different days. This remarkable individual is Pvt. Ernesto P. Giuliano Jr., with Sgt. Gordon Booth's Dance Orchestra. Erny hosted his many friends on Wedi1esday and Friday of last week; the facilities and staff of the Service Club had to be engaged to accommodate all the guests. During the Wednesday festivities, Erny graciously shared the spotlight with his favorite pin-up girl, movie actress Laraine Day-he modestly explained that the "preview" was arranged because Laraine, in her anxiety to help celebrate the occasion, arrived at Drew Field tw.o days early. Erny was too busy making music for his -GI pals to dance' with the star, or speak to her, or even get her autograph . but he can go on dreaming about her, can't he? A most touching scene occurred on Friday, that was the real birthday, when songstress Mimi (or is it "Minnie") Ferlita presented Erny with a big homemade chocolate birthday cake, while the band sloughed off a couple of hot choruses of "Happy Birthday." It took six of Sergeant Booth's dance banders to keep Erny from making a speech at this stage of the party . To enable the 69'ers to participate in this happy event, fiddling Joe Venuti and his well-known radio, stage and movie jazz ba.nd took over the chores at the Officers' Club. Thanks a lot, Joe; the gang will do the sa.me for you some day. Joe also worked the radio show and broadcast the following night so that the 69'ers could play a return engagement at the Medics Dance, Red Cross Auditorium. Great guy, Venuti! Too bad that Cpl. Sam Schiavone_and Pvt. Jock Giacomucci missed the big doings-they'll know better than to take another furlough. Sam' s return, later in the week, made Cpl. Mike Gal dine very happy-Mike restored the cumbersome duties of "Upper Bay Chief" to Sam's weary shoulders. "Jock" took time off his leave to visit the Giuliano' s at South Ardmore, Pa., and to assure Papa Giuliano that Junior would win the war single-handedly. TURNABOUT Another unusual treat which the Band enjoyed last week was the "hppy" privilege of marching, instead of playing, in a review. The 69'els were among several units by Third Air Force Headquarters for their achievement in curbing venereal diseases within their ranks. Warrant Officer Lester G. Baker received the Merit Award Certificate for the Band. The "Signal" Band (465th AAF Band) provided music for the ceremonies. Pvt. Eddy Munk, ,iust back from his Pittsburgh furlough, reported that his flat feet weic considerably flatter after the three-hour parade. General Has Right Name, Wrong City SPRINGFIELD, Mo.(INS) -The reception committee and the band finally went home after scanning the skies in vain. But they gracefully accepted the excuse and apologies of Maj. Gen. Frederick E. Uhl, head of the Seventh Service command, last night. The plane carrying General Uhl from his headquarters at Omaha, flew him ro Springfield, Ill., instead of Spring field, Mo. where he was to inspect an Army hospital.

DREW FIELD ECHOES1 THURSDAY1 NOVEMBER251 1943 PAGE THREE COURSE OF THE WAR European Fortress Is Bluff By MAX WERNER There can be no more discussion as to what constitutes the second front, or as to where it should be deployed. The main blow by the AngloAmerican forces will be delivered in western "Europe. Thus strategy in the surges into the foreground to show the direction of the decisive attack. Confronted with military real-ities the German concept of an impregnable Atlantic wall is reyealed as a bluff. What t h e Anglo -American forces and the wehr' mach.t. respectiv'ely face in their coming clash is already predetermined by general condi-. tions and the relationship of forces in the west. First of all,. space conditions are unfavorable for German defense. The wehrmacht must defend not only the channel zone but the entire coast from .the Bay of Biscay to the tip of the Jutland peninsula. This is not a limited area which could be walled in ffild converted into a single fortress for defense; it is a line approximately 1,500 miles long, 10 times as long as the Maginot Line was. Strategically. most. important is the middle sector of this coast, the sea front between Havre and Rotterdam, the area that lies between the mouths of the Seine and the Rhme. This configuration of the western war theater offers the Anglo-American forces the chance to outflank the Germans while it remains impossible for the wehrmacht to -::oncentrate its forces. No fortress warfare can be waged in the west. The coastline of western Europe is a front, and not a fort. Germany has assets as well as liabilities for the western campaign. Her defense technique is good in every field; she has mine fields, coast defenses, fortifications in depth along the main, r elatively narrow 'sector, good organization of her rear and of her transportation .

Nor are her reserves adequate for continued defense;. nor sufficient mobile reserves for counter blows, especially where tanks are indicated. Her air power is insufficient in strength to meet the enemy. tion will then be to smash the Anglo -American Luftwaffe In defense, to prevent will be in sea power, a1r power, the transportation of German remobile weapons and general re-serves, to crush enemy communiserves.

[Printed bY The St. P etersburg Times ] VOJ_, UME 2-NUMBER 38 Women Not Slackers The writer of a nationally-syndicated column recently charged the women of the country were showing themselves to be "slackers"-he used the word-because they had failed to enlist in sufficient numbers in the feminine branches of the armed forces. The Army Air Forces, now in an intensive campaign to recruit thousands of WACs for important jobs, has other' ideas on the subject. Here is the way AAF officials tell their side of the story: The Women's Army Corps has proved itself despite a combination of distressing circumstances. During its period o.f organization cartoonists, comedians,and skeptics had a field day on the subject of women soldiers. They established an attitude on the part of the public which persists in many quarters toda_y. These people forgot completely that their grandfathers had said similar things about women army nurses-and had been proved 100 per cent wrong. DOUBTERS NOW REJOICE Army men themselves were not by any means in their acceptance of the WACs. Commanders of many. posts were pessimistic when told a WAC ietach ment was being assigned to them. They anticipated "problems" which never oc-curred. Now those same commanders are the loudest boosters of the WAC. In questioning women's patriotism, the columnist also overlooked one highly sig nificant point-that many women have been dissuaded from joining the .wAC by their brothers, husbands or fathers who were unfamiliar with the facts. Some of this can be attributed to male arrogance sneering at the idea that women. can do men's work. More of it cari be traced to gossip, rumor, whispering campaigns and distortion. WACS BIG SUCCESS Being a small, easily identified and much-discussed group, the WACs were subject to the same process which under_... lies all prejudice. When a member of such a group performs any questionable act, his fault is attributed to others of his kind. Any soldier knows that many a "good army town" has been ruined because a few men in uniform made nuisances of them-' selves-and so the townsfolk decided all soldiers were bums. This condition has been even more true in the case of the Y.l ACs, who have been constantly under public scrutiny. The slightest instance or report of misconduct on the part of one WAC was distorted into condemnation of the entire corps. What has been the actual conduct of the WACs? This can pest be answered by the statement of the executive officer of one of the largest. posts of the country: "We were mighty dubious when the WACs came to our camp. After six months we're asking for more. We're delighted. They've done excellent work. The women are of a generally high type. A lot of them are college graduates. Their conduct has been generally above reproach. They're just like any other group of women you would come across in business, educational, or school life-except that I think. they're better than most." "Dammit! We forgot carbon paper."

Drew Field Soldier Is Thankful For U. S. "I have more at stake this war than the average American soldier. I'm hapPY to be in the Army, for America tock me in when I needed help, and now I have a chance to show my appr .ciation by helping America. I'd like to go back to Germany, but ONLY as a member of the American fighting forces." These words tell briefly the story of T/5 Fred Heyman, whose father died in a Nazi concentration camp, whose mother is now in a German camp and wltose brother is iil the hands of tlie Hitlerites. Heyman, who is 27, is a clerk in the communications company of the 50 3d SAW Regiment. Of Jewish ex. traction, he lived his first 20 years at Hof, Bavaria. There, while working as a dry goods clerk, he became interested in America, "the land of opportunity," after hearing from relatives and friends who !tad left Germany for this country. The anti Semitic cam paign of the Nazis hadn't blossomed forth in its full fury, but Heyman was con fident that, as long as he remained in Germany, he would be denied normal opportunities. So in October, 1936 he started the voyage to his adopted land. Relatives met him at New York, and he then went' to Brooklyn, going into the radio sales and repair business. In February, 1941, he was drafted and sent to Fort Bragg, N. C., in a medical unit. While there he was transferred to the Signal T/5 Fred Heyman Corps and sent to Georgia Tech as an assistant instructor for ROTC units. While at Atlanta, he realized one of his chief ambitions, when, on Jan. 11 1942, he was granted his citizenship. The wa1 has brought tragedy and grief to his family. Last. August, he received a communication from the Red Cross telling him that his father had died in a German concentration camp in France. The letter also stated that his mother was in a camp in France, and that his only brother was taken by the Nazis, probably to a work camp. Heyman has one big hope fo1 the future, after the war ends-to bring his mother and brother to this country. He hopes some day to have a home and wife, and he is a firm believer in the American way of life. ... l Communications to this eoiumn must bear, for publication, the correct name and organization of the writer.

"Dear Sir: "Do you think that you can find the owner of the gloves inclosed, which were left in my car by a soldier from Drew Field who rode with me from Tallahassee to Newberry Friday morning, November 27?

"I regret his loss of these gloves, and if you have a way to locate him, I will appreciate your .co-operation., Also, you might like to hear that this young man reflected credit on his uniform and Drew Field by his appearance and general courtesy, as well as his attitude toward the job he had to do. I enjoyed giving him a lift. Very truly yours, MARY E. KE_QWN," State Home DemonstratiOn Agent. Likes Pages 8 and 9 When I came to Drew a month ago,. I knew no one here, and had no idea of the recreational facilities offered on the field and in Tampa. On my first free evening, I went into Tampa with no plans and no companions. I came home early very discouraged. The next morning, the ECHOES was delivered to my mess hall. Scanning through it, I turried to the middle section. There, spread before me, was a complete schedule of events in town and on the post. I note d that there was a symphony orchestra for service men at a local service center, and a Spanish class at another. Now, my evenings are full and very enjoyable. I attend orchestra practice and Spanish class, catch my favorite movie stars at the Post theaters and go to free dances on and off the Base. On my days off, I have tried St. Petersburg and Clearwater activities, at your. suggestion. It was swell: Thank you, sir, for making your middle section of real value to a fun-seeking soldier! SGT. AL PEARRINWALD. Thank you, sergeant. We like to hear people like the paper which, after all, is published for the infoTmation an'9entertainment of soldiers.-Ed Wants Better Entrance Dear Sir: Some weeks ago an interested party wrote to the ECHOES demanding that something be done about the unsightly entrance to Drew Field. An attractive gate has been erected yet, in order to pass in or out of the field, Drew personnel must wade through a dusty gulley. , As my contemporary mentioned, the shoeshine which we spend ten minutes on before leaving the barracks disappears as we trek to the bus. The large silver wings which greet the visitor entering Drew Field somehow lose their grandeur, as his shoes sink deep into the dirt. Can't something be done about the gulley at the gate? PFC. GILBERT BENSON Don' t worry, Pfc. Benson, your shoes won t lose their shine much longer. Big things ar e planned for the entrance to the field which, we are sure, will restore for you the grandeur of the wings.-Ed.

Congratulations! a nee with Victor McLaglen in ease Control Officer, Drew Field. Keep up the good work. "The Informer." ANYWAY, some new things have come up that deserve mention. Have you seen the new theaters on the Base? They are really some thing. We now have eight of the things (That's a Jot of celluloid) and there is no excuse for the men saying, "We ain't got no place to go." SOMEONE gave that "smooth Lt." a lot of fronf page stuff regarding the capture of a horse. By the law of find and grab the nag is his. He claims that when he hit on that dea l ... someone got his goat. SLIPS THAT PASS in the night: The fellow (we all kno\v. hiin) who has always been in the habit (and a good one) of loosening his belt and his waist band when driving on a long trip ... arrives at destination and forgetting the condition of his raiment . steps out of the ea!' and . (gosh, it' s cold). WHY DO ALL the Gis in the new shade of OD have to mix uniforms and then holler like hell when the ticket taker at the theater says, "Sorry, chum, no soap?" Come to think of it .. who wants soap anyhow? IN THE NETHERLANDS East Indies, American soldiers ar e warned not to touch a woman in public-not even to help her across the street. (Who wants to be public anyway?) HAVE YOU EVER been pestered (another term for embarrassed) by the knowing few who ask you how you liked such and such an opera or classical concerto (what concerto isn't classical?) Here is what I do ... it may help, if it does, use it ... when asked .. I merely say, "Ye-e-sss" (knowingly) "I thought it was excellent, but doesn't, in my estimation come up to the voluble Sinigaglia overture to 'Le Baruffe Chiozotte'." Try it ... (if you can pronotJnee it). It stops 'em cold ... Peace ... it's wonderful. (Adam, stop plagiarizing .the Advice to the Yardbirds column, another ECHOES feature. Ed.) I am sorta dissappointed in the nice weather lately. The local Chamber of Commerce used to furnish me with a 'good bit of copy, but since they have taken my tip and have decided to co-operate so far as the weather is concerned I don' t have nothing to holler about. (Please Jet it rain ... just onc. e ) .. LARAINE DAY .... GOLLIE! I HAVE BEEN looking around the office and I suddenly realize that we have all the lovely WACs right here in this office. They: are really terrific. JUST HEARD that the latest steer for the WACs to get their hair done is as follows: One WAC decides that the stuff on the scalp needs some of the finer art (the touch and behold system used by some). Sooo ... she goes on sick call. The Beauty Shop is up in the Hasp. area, and the only time off . stores closed. Result? Big sick book ... pretty WACs. HERE IS ONE for the lads who think the Army is rough (here at Drew). Yugo-Slav guerrillas are the lads who have the stuff on the inside where it counts. Listen to this one ... The lads (even as you and I) "Am I Kiddin'?" swim into the waters of the Adriatic coast line with knives in their mouths. These boys are not aut fishing. They are out to cut the mines that Putzi has placed in suc)1 precision all along the waterway. Here is how they do it. They swim up to the mine ... cut it l-oose . float it into shore ... remove the detonators ... take the explosives out . use it in hand grenades and then throw these same grenades at the Nazis. The result is one helluva noise and usually the loss of several arms and legs (Nazi arms and legs.) "It's cheaper, too." THE BASE MOTOR Pool has undergon e a change: Mr. Myers is no longer there. H e was one swell gent and we all hate to see him leave. S. B. Wilkinson has taken over ... and he is the bird that can do it. Mr. Winters ,down there still b elieves in saving paper bring in a trip ticket and he'll send the next trip out on the same paper. (At least h e will try.) Mr. Davis is still fishing off the C auseway at 4 a. m ( i t says here). Mrs. B., the lovely lady with all the smiles in her voice, hasn't found the pape r she was looking for. (Understand that some deep intrigue lurks behind the finding of same.) Kitchen 24 Wins Best Mess Flag two straight weeks, which they broke last week.

A lieutenant colonel stationed in a large city had access to information involving troop movements and other matters vital to national security. One evening he told a woman over a public telephone that he was flying overseas the next day and named his destination and p1obable time of arrival. A high 1 anking officer was mentioned as being a passenger on the same plane. The lieutenant colonel was relieved from active duty and reverted to inactive status.

To offset .the lack of sufficient rolling stock in Tampa to handle the huge -rush of bulk mail just before Christmas, trucks from Drew Field's motor pool will again deliver packages from house to house for a period of ten d ays or more, Capt. Janda said. No provision has been made for military drivers, he says, but their use is not an impossibility, Experienced. personneJ to assist in the handling of military mail also will be lent. "This depends," Capt. Janda said, "on how large the city's mail traffic is."

PAGE TEN DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSitAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1943 Gonorrhea Germ After Infection, Is Class Subject Swinging into the third weekly Noncom course, Capt. A. E. Abraham, Base venereal control officer, last Wednesday spoke before a large class on the effect of gonorrhea after the germ has entered the body. The Noncoms attending the,.....----------------. weekly. instruction s have been selected by commanders as potential company instructors. After completing the course, an examination will be given each man. Those passing will be awarded a diploma and return prepared to teach soldiers venereal disease control. MORE ABOUT-THANKSGIVING (COJ)tinued from P:1ge 1) TALK Camouflage Unit Of 5th A W Brings 'Mountain' Here SGT. MERLE E. FRIZZELE Mohamet couldn't go to the mountain so the mountain came to Mohamet. In effect that is what is happening in the 5th Training Battalion Camouflage school. Using a blackboard to il_lus trate, Capt. Abraham drew a hke ness of the male and female organs which are most susceptible to infiltration by the gonorrhea germ. With this illustration the Captain further traced the course of the. germ after its entrance into the body. H'e showed why disability and sterility is the inevitable result of unchecked venereal disease and pointed out the urgency of immediate action to halt the diseases' growth. He discussed in detail what heedless action would eventually bring to anyone so afflicted-namely: mental depression, disability, one's home and, in some cases, sterility. Drew men handing the Weatherford Raiders a 14-6 whipping. It was expected the 465th AAF band will be present to play between the halves. AWUTC men will have only a half day's work, with training activity ceasing at 11:30 a.m. SpeCial services will be held at chapels and the turkeys will be devoured at 1 p.m. Both Service Clubs will be ablaze with holiday spirit. Service Club No. 1 started the Thanksgiving spirit with a formal dance last night. Music was played by the 69th AAF Band. CHRISTMAS SEAL SALES begin at Drew Field Post Exchanges today and will continue throughout the holidays, it was announced yesterday. Above, Miss Pauline Jameson of PX Number l pins upa poster. These attractive posters are displayed at all Drew PXs. Profit from the sales goes to victims of tuberculosis, and soldiers are urged to purchase tflem when sending Xmas packages to friends and relatives. As new wrinkles appear in the training schedule of the school and the problems of the grad-'" in the field come to light anq formation trickles back from battle zones on the knowledge needs of camfoufleurs in the field, it becomes thE self appointed task of the school authorities to disseminate the information to those in training in whatever locality they may be . When the GI vehicle goes by loaded to overflowing with gras s mats, grass ropes, vine ropes, braided weeds, garnished nets and makeshift garnishing something new has been added. HIGH SPEED PLAN Although the school is now working at top speed with the best classes in its brief colorful history there is always time for someone to go into the field and make inspections and answer the problem questions. The nucleus of a laboratory is being set up as p;.rt of the school. It doesn't consist entirely of bottles and test tubes, although that may some day be an integral part. Right now the big question being answered by the school is, "How do we do when we have nothing to do with?" SING, DANCE 569th Party Set For Next Monday .J Tonight the highlight at Service Club No. 1 will be a community sing. with Miss Mary Climaxing the lecture, Capt. Newkirk at the piano. By CPL. HANK GOODMAN Abraham had present four volunteers from the hospital's ward who were formerly infected. The gesture on the part of the volunteers was two-fold, the captain STRONG P"OINT Their plight brought home more forcibly than any other means the dire results of those who failed to heed. the recommendations of the Army health officers and an honest effort on their part to help other soldiers. After answering questions {rom class members, the session ended with th"'e showing of a motion picture. The picture titled "Know For Sure," brought out the symptoms of syphilis how it may enter the body; methods of determining its activities, treatment and how vital is the need of an occasional blood test by all.

Creamed corn will be manner. substituted for string beans, while hard, GI candy will be sidetracked for fruitcake .

Happy Thanksgiving. Pass the Bromo, please. Answer to BOB HAWK'S YANKWIZ There's a touch of "Air Cadet Fever" in the battalion. M/Sgt. Earl F. Foulk, S/Sgt. Arthur B .. Cook and Pfc. Patrick G. Waddell have been transferred to the Air Corps to be appointed in the future as aviation cadets. In the mean. time, T/4 Carlo Silvesti awaits the decision that will put him on a similar order. Coming down to earth briefly, Dominick is presently busy with allotments, letters to live off the post, etc. Time out for a sigh. And thEm there is T /5 Steve Bernath who is; the proud pop of 'an eight-pound boy. We express our congratulations to Steve and admiration for Headquarters and Plotting Company whose T. 0. is rapidly being filled with eightpound boys. And while we're on the subject of Headquarters and Plotting Company we'd like to wish speedy recovery to the company commander, Lt. Robert B. Langan, now in the hospital. We now have a man Friday in the person of Pfc. Jerome Weissman, who does a little reporting from 1st Reporting Company. The rest of the space is his. Friday says: Lt.

(Sometimes called horse real co-operative spirit of a U S. mackerel.) soldier. Downtown in Tampa, t'other day, we spoke with an old fellow who sent us on our way with our head high and our heart happier. "Yes sir," he stated, "Every time I pass a WAC on the street, I salute her. Sometimes they think I'm fresh, and that sorta hurts my feelings. Lots of the girls salute. back. That makes an old man feel pretty chipper. I salute the WACs just as I salute our flag. Believe me, I'm proud of our girls in uniform!" Wasn't that nice? That's a verbal salute to a group of gals who really deserve it. Pfc. Grace Zilka, who has the dubious honor, as part of Captain Screck's department, of inspecting WAC shoe soles every Saturday morn, isn' t above using the same inspection tricks used by the rest of the gals. At least, Grace, we'd like to know where your little brogues were last Sat urday. Don't try to get out of it, we saw you put 'em in your barracks bag! That lucky guy who roamed 'round the WAC area with legitimate reason, MP Joe Nigro, won' t be around there any more. After making pals with all of the girls who wandered in, he's gonna relax a bit in a nice, quiet desk job. Says the job was fun, and he' s sorry he has to leave it. We're sorry, too, Joe. Says he'll be glad to step in 'n' help us with any little thing at any time. though. Corporal Molly Adams seems to make a habit of coming in at the same late hour with the same tall. good-looking fellow, night after night. And then she's always so engrossed in conversation with him that she just can' t seem to remember to introduce him to her friends. Ever see more pep exhibited by one person than that shown by Pvt. :rv):cManus, recent arrival. Sun up to sun down, she dashed around the Line and the WAC area, while her anxious officers shake, their heads and try to slow her down. Just the old Northern "git up and go," we s'pose. The smudge of black on an instructor's face may have been by accident or design. Perhaps he was experimenting with the carbon deposit from the exhaust pipe of a GI truck. He has already found charcoal and soot do a nifty job and that chap standing over a simmering kettle like the witch of folklore, hasn't gotten so tired of GI cooking that he is on his own in the food department. The concoction he brews may go down in the notes of the school as a field expedient paint; or another batch may be an adhesive; or still as adding an infrared quality to an artificial garland. He doesn't gather red clay, yellow clay, or powdered sand just to be putting in time. COLOR TECHNIQUE First he dries the clay, powders it, covers the surface with an" adhesive and then thinly coats the adhesive with the powdered clay. When the drying occurs the colors are not unlike those from real paint. Rain, of course, does things to the painted surface; but then, camouflage is work and the camoufluer expects to work. His fbt top sags from heat like his girl friend's underskirt when a shoulder strap is broken. Just as he must diplomatically tell he.r, he must also in a like man ner tell his buddies that the task of maintenance must done. The grass he weaves into LU.!Jt:. changes color with age-even the texture changes. He must constantly be on the pob to improvise ways of acquiring the texture and color he needs to do the job of deception. The portion of the staff going into the field to hold critiques on the camouflaging of installations must be diplomatic, too. Their foremost problem is to teach; and telling isn't enough. Learning to do by doing is the best method yet devised in the teaching of camouflage. Razor Blades Used Against Nips Private Mary Lois Haight and her smooth Sergeant thought t'was just their dancing, when they saw everyone watching them, down at Larry Ford's. As the space about them cleared a little, Mary swayed graceful1y to the music, tilting her head and giving the boys a stagey smile. Suddenly smile froze, as she realized that it wasn' t her dancing, but a broken garter, which had stolen the stage. Sgt. Bob, blushing to the roots of his blond hair, led her quickly away, muttering things about priorities and such. GUADALCANAL.
