Gen. Sherrill Opens Drive for Safety FOLLOW RULES Those who violate this rule and who walk along the righthand side of the road in the be lief they will more likely be picked up by passing motorists are reminded by officials that an increasing number of motorists will not stop to pick ilp pedes-trians who are violating the rules of safety by walking on the righthand side. There is a particular danger in walking on the highways at night. The dark color of the OD uniform makes it difficult for drivers to see soldiers on the highway. When it is necessary to be on the highway at night, the pedestrian should secure a flashlight which he. can turn on as a motorist ap proaches. In the absence of a flashlight, he can use a handkerchief or some other white object which ,will stand out against the dark 'color of his uniform. An accident last Saturday night, in which a soldier was seriously in jured, might not have occurred if these precautions had been followe. d AF Camouflage Caravans Here Camouflage Caravans Nos. 4 and 5 from the Third Air Force Camouflage School, Walterboro, S.

Real Flying Safety ... "He's a little bashful, but he grows on you." By CHAPLAIN JOHN A; DOUGLAS Just a few weeks ago I saw an movie entitled, "Heaven Can Wait." The very title suggestive of an attitude or trend in the world today. Humanitarian-minded people are encouraged by the formulation of post-war plans. Under this heading we have the "four freedoms" of President Roosevelt and Prime Min ister Churchill; the newly established world relief organi:_ zation headed by the former governor of New York, Herbert Lehman; and various senatorial committees. But we are impressed by one fact. These things are not for today. They are.for tomorrow. "Heaven Can Wait." That heaven must wait seems inevitable. We have a war to win. You just can' t mix war and heaven. But heaven is coming. We all believe that, or do we? The hungry people of Belgium believe it; the persecuted Jews of Poland hope for it; the freedom-loving French are confident of it; the industrially -minded Czechs dream of it; 'the peace loving Norwegians pray for it; and the pleasure-bound Americans know that it is coming. While we carry through the grim business of today we do well: to have the heaven of to morrow in our hearts. In a very real sense of world order heaven must wait, and can wait, for a limited time; but in the individual's heart it can never wait, for in the final analysis the reality of God's tomorrow will be built. upon the attributes his spirit which reflected in man are good character, integrity, un selfishness, righteousness, love of fr,eedom, charity, and love for God and fellowman. The practice of these virtues today assure the heaven of to morrow. They challenge e'{ery one of us, leaders and followers alike. Our international statesmen with the confused world picture clearly comprehended have laid out before them the blueprints of tomorrow's world. These blue prints have come into being through the travail of many gen erations of common folk; from .the mistakes of yesteryear; the dead of Flanders Field and of the bat-Those qig four-motored babies hover-tlefields of this wai:; the hopes Heaven can wait, but it can't wait forever.

The Third Air Force is the largest air unit in the world. Its record in safety proves to us how efficiently the big boys are being operated. When war first became an actuality our training officials were often criticized by public offiCials for the number of accidents. The reason, of course, for accidents was that the pilots, instructors and planes were not battle-tested. Now we have instructors who have been overseas and exchanged blows with the enemy. Our planes have also been tested in combat. The fledgling today is given the profit of past experience and past I)listakes, which are inevitable. We're proud of the safety record and know the rest of the ground solc;liers look skyward. with even greater confidence in the power and skill of those overhead.

We like digging bands like Fletcher Henderson, Joe Venuti, Mal F!al-: lett, and also seein' the stars. Another good feature would be a soldier dramatic club.

On Oct. 15, the Group Engineering Office inaugurated an inter-Squadron competitive system for the rating of Squadron Engineering Sections. The basis for the f!wards was under a point system, whoever had amassed the largest number of points for one week would get the pennant. POINT SYSTEM The points would be accumulated under these two conditions: One-half point for each percentage point for percentage of aircraft in commission, plus the points awarded for the first two Squadron airplanes inspected by the Group Inspectors during. a one hundred and fifty hour inspecQUARTERS-Just between us girls it's rip time for tion.

The two differences are the first eight planes inspected by the Group Inspectors during the month are counted in the monthly award, and there are points awarded for the condition of the Engineering maintenance area. If the maintenance area is in first class condition, ten points are given, whereas a second class area receives pnly five points. NO PUSHOVER All men in the Engineering Section know that the winning of the Award entails much hard work. A flying schedule of 18 hours a day leaves little time for maintenance. The crew chief who keeps his plane on a flying status, the maintenance man who gets the plane into first class condition for inspection and keeps the area clean, along with the air plane specialists, all do their part toward keeping the points piling up, and the pennant waving. Award was based on total number of points received by each Squadron as indicated below: One-half point for each point of percentage of aircraft in commission: 592nd, 38; 593rd, 37; 594th, 29; 595th, 39. l Points for condition of first two airplanes judged for the week: 592nd, 6; 593rd, o; 594th, 3; 595th, 6 Total: 592nd, 44; 593rd, 37; 594th, 32; 595th, 45.

JOHN F. The old 69th AAF Band was redesignated and began the New Year as the 569th Arniy Band, but there was plenty doing before the 69'ers bowed out. New Year's Eve saw Sgt. Gordon Booth and his dance orchestra at the Officers' Club, with, newcomer Cpl. John A. Van Patten augmenting the trombone section. Pfc. Jerry Becker's Musickers did their chores at the Service Club with Pvt. Art Carchedi back at his old jub on piano. Sgt. Woody Harwick, drummer, staged an impromptu floor show by falling off the bafld stand during the course of the evening (very,. very melodramatic scene). Cpl. Sam J. Schiavone also turned maestro to usher in Father Time's newest baby-Sam spread some good cheer among the guests at the Mac!!son Street USO Club . Sgt. Jerry Sedlak assisted nobly with his magic flute. Corporal Schiavone caused considerable commotion at the hospital one day during his recent stay there when he mistook a bit of wintergreen oil for cough medicine and gulped it down . castor oil relieved the situationin time. Pvt. First Class Norman N Nailor hurried back from his Troy, N. Y., furlough to cele brate the New Year with his old cronies here. Bet Pfc. Gus DeRidder was having quite a time in Dolgeville, N. Y., that night. Ditto, Sgt. Bud Estes, in Media; Penn. Privates Bill Goodall and Marvin Walker celebrated by joining the Avon Park Detachment Band, that day. If you want any inf01;mation on "Lost and Found" business, just see Sgt. Gordon 0. Booth . Gordon grew to be an expert after all the research he conducted in trying to recover a trumpet he left on a bus following a recent "tour" of DeLand. Maybe G. 0. B. can make money with his own L & F Bureau to replace the lost instrument-if it isn't found soon. It was like old-home week when Cpl. Mike Galdino took a small combo to play for the Headquarters and Headquarters Company of the Third Fighter Command-that was Mike's outfit before he joined the Band. Sergeant Willie Krewson is buying stealf.l, dinners for Cpl. Joe "Pancho" Wright and Pvt. Erny Giuliano-Willie was the first to give up in a three-way mustache growing contest. Pancho has developed quite a "brush" on his upper Iii>; Erny is having trouble trying to decide whether he should tint his newly acquired blonde mustache or bleach the brown, curly locks that grace his dome -he may take the easy way out, a Ia Willie Krewson. MERY NEW YERE! I JUST DOFFED my hat to the dishwasher, but he will not tell anybody. Anyhow, I have no more apples left, so nobody could expect me to dunk my head any longer. I almost drowned once that way. I think I better finish this colyum tomorrrrrrrr. AFTER A WELL-EARNED v acation I am back again at the desk ready fo go to work. (No, I didn't take a vacation, bnt the lad next door did and it did me a lot of good). NEW YEAR'S resolutions always seem to hit the paper each year just about this time. Me, I'm riot going to make any more this year. I can't strangle Hitler myself, and so resolve to do it. I am already one. of the finest soldiers in the world. (So are you, brother), so -won't resolve to be "the" finest. I say I won't make any more .resolutions this year, but I am gonna continue workin' like Hell on the ones that I made last year, and if the gods are willing, they will fit into this year's picture very nicely. (Can you hear me Tojo?) AND THEN THERE is the guy who invited "her" up for a Scotch and soda. "She" found out that he was the type of man with. whom t9 eat; drink and be wary. All of which leads me. to say "if you can't be. a 'private,' be a 'corpuscle'. (the Red Cross Blood Donors can tell you what it means). SUGGESTION FOR PX No. 1: A Juke Box in a bar in New York City contains one item billed, "Fiye Minutes of Silence for a Nickel." The one blank item pays fo,r the machine each week. A SOLDmR who had a five-.day pass extended him wired his Commanding Officer as follows: "Will not arrive today as scheduled. Am not home yesterday yet." MAYOR LaGUARDIA is still laughing. Eighteen dogs in the Metropolitan area eating their own license tags. Dog tags used to be made of hard rubber, but now they are made of soy beans. The dogs have just caught on. Might not be a bad idea for the Arrhy. Think of a long hike ... three hours to chow time ... reach down and a dog tag sandwich. Could be. LISTEN TO THIS: An Indian wrote in answering two pictures he saw of farming in the west. The pictures showed the waste of dust storms and dilapidated homes. "White man heap crazy. Make big tepee. Plow hill. Water wash. Wind blow soil, grass aU gone. Squaw gone; papoose too. No chuckaway. No pig, no corn, no bay, no cow, no pony. Indian no plow land. Keep grass. Buffalo eat. Indian eat buffalo. Hide make tepee, moccasins too. Indian make no terrace. No build dam. No give a damn. All time eat. No hunt job. No hitchhike. No ask relief. Great Spirit make grass. Indian no waste anything . White man much crazy." (Read ,it again .. ) WHEN A BRITISH sailor at the Hollywood Canteen complained about a sore throat, a solicitous hostess asked, "Have you ever tried gargling with salt water?" "You're asking me," he said, "who has been torpedoed three times!" ONE DAY LATER: N-ow I yam much better and wish to apologize for yesterday' s screed. This is the year One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty-four. I feel much older. It is a thing of importance that I am learnin g to drink more and more, which says much. for civilization, progress, and all that. NOW I GIVE you a letter from a thrilled reader: "DEAR ADAMN," it reads, "wear hav U bin all mye life? Eye luv you. You are mye ideal?? Eye yam a whack from the whack detoxx-dera.:...* * detachment here at Drool Field. Eye never pay atenshun to enybody who is not intellijent, butt wen EYe cum acrost guys like you I wood like to meet him. Will you meet me next Lundi (my mother is French, what Eye mean!) and -we can tawk abowt poetree, ligature, artt and sighince?,. and it is signed, "Sincerely. (I will meet you. ) NEXT TIME your lot sounds a little tough, think of this excerpt from a letter from Sgt. George Reilly, Marine in the Southwest Pacific: "It's 10 p.m. now. My candle is burning low. After a hard day's work chow and a cold shower, it's time to hit the hay. We'll be up again at 4 in the morning to start another day." FATE PLAYS ITS NIMBLE game in many sad ways and a sergeant we know had this bitter web spun by the dismal damsels: New Year's. Eve found him celebrating with a crowd at one of the local rookeries. Along about 11 p.m.-according to his watch-the noise became deafening and he entered with the spirit and spirits of the place, outdoing them in hilarity. "By golly," he shouted . ''Two more hours to go This is one night we can stay out past midnight!" He continued his hilarity, occasionally looking at his watch with satisfaction as it moved toward the midnight hour. "When his watch registered 12 a.m. an MP touched him gently on the shoulder. "Time to get moving," the holstered soldier told "the sergeant. "Get going my eye," the sergeant said, "We get to stay until 1 a.m. He pointed to his watch. "Sure I know," the MP said, looking at the watch. "Only trouble is your watch is an hour slow." Our friend and disillusioned hero left. GETTIN' NEAR the end of the sheet. The editor and his scheming pals (who had me married this afternoon) can relax: their vigilance and let me go my innocent (I am, too) way. The editor is feelin' right pert these days. llis trouble (you remem ber) is all cleared up and he can swear again. I have never ia m:r life heard such language. (All in Latin. too).

Watson has been appointed execut_ive officer of the Sixth SAW Battalion at Camp Weatherford. A native of Ironwood, Mich., :1e went to public schools there. Later he attended Michigan 'I;ech and received his commission in the Signal Corps Reserve at the University of Mimiesota as lieutenant in 1936. Major Watson married Miss Dorothy Wilson of Spirit Lake, Ia., and they have two children, Jane Ann, 2, and John Charles, nine months. They live in Bradenton. GOOD CONDUCT AWARDS CO Is Promoted By CPL. HANK GOODMAN Tuesday the 569th SAW Battalion passed its first anniversary. To the bulk of the organization, Tuesday was probably just another day, but there were 19 officers and enlisted men to whom that day had significance; it was a day which these men had become identi,fied with a fine, hard-working organization that is determined to go places. And appropriately enough, just last week came the promotion to Lieutenant Colonel of Battalion Commander Joseph H. Dunlap. Colonel Dunlap joined the outfit in May, 1. 943, prior to the organization's successful venture of operational training. The colthis. battalion has come as a result of the newly formed provisionals, and th.e reorganization and activation of other .outfits.

He attended public schools in Baltimore and later, King College in Tennessee, where he played football, lacrosse and water polo. After serving as party chief for an electric. company .for five years, Schumacher decided to turn "Tom Tucker," and instead of singing for his supper, he talke' d clients into buying. motor cars from his employer. It was from this employment that Schu macher was drafted in March, 1943 when the President of the United States wrote his familiar greetings to him.

PAGE DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1944 Mental Section Rehabilitates MALAI)JUSTMENT NOW GETS CAREFUL STUDY Transition from civilian to military life is an indefinite job for some types of indivduals and Drew Feld's Mental Hygiene Unit has the task of aiding and adjusting the un usual personality to the soldier's life. Since its inception here in ---------------. April the unit under the direc tion Captain Lewis L. Robbins has demonstrated its value in meeting complex problems created by the presence of mal adjusted soldiers. EXPERIENCED DOCTOR Captain Robbins is a neuro psychiatrist who practiced. in Chi-. cago and Topeka before entering the Army. He is a graduate of the Rush Medical College. The unit provides facilities to all. Drew organizations for deal ing with soldiers presenting forms of maladjustment such as inapti tude, unusual behavior, gold bricking, recalcitrance, alcohol ism, being AWOL, and inadequate performance of duties. They also provide psychiatric, physiological and social data, and make recommenda-. tioons to courts-martial and dis-charge boards. and was acted upon primarily on a suggestion by staff member Capt. Paul A. Banfield. The plan was presented to Brig. Gen. Stephen H. Sherrill, Commanding G e n e r a I of AWUTC, and Major Jesse L. Grace, 'AWUTC Surgeon. Soldiers who visit the Mental Hygiene Unit, aside from those who call there voluntarily, are referred by the chaplains, ad jutants, the l1ospital, dispensaries, training school directors, the provost marshal, the per sonnel and classification offi.. cers, the Red Cross director, and unit corimialiders. At -the putset,. each case is as signed to case worker, who studies all available service and school records, interviews the soldier and talks with him about his particular problems. Where found necessary, the soldier is then referred to the psychologist, who administers intelligence, per sonality and aptitude tests. FINAL. WORD.

PAGE FOURTEEN DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1944 NEWLY NAMED 588T' H Fun,Frolic,Food REVIEWS '43 SPORT' S By PVT. GEORGE S. AMSBARY The good old "588th" is now no more, but at least insofar as sports are concerned, its memory will never fade! is now the 2nd Battalion, 1st Training Regiment-a new name, which in the future, as in the past, will designate the most formidable athletic teams on Drew Field. But before we ring in the new, l e t s look a t some of the things these sportsmen accomplished this past year. SOFTBALL CHAMPS Back in the baseball season it all started. Eight teams were o rganized w ithin the Battalion, and one of those teams-that of "C" Company-closed the season by winninr: the A WUTC play-of f and being pr.esented with the softball championship cup. Members of this snappy, championship t eam were: M /Sgt. Abe Toller; S /Sgts. James McCabe and Helmer Winaa s ; Sgts. Pat Conway, Curtis Mortimer, Burgess Parli:'s and Jack Roach; Cpls. No. 3 It should b e the co ntes t of the season! And thus the sports para d e of the old 588th B attalio n has come abreast of us. Whether it b e in softball, obsta cl e c ourses, football, or basketballw hether it be the 588th or the 2nd B attalionwe can be sure tha t their athletic prowess will b e as it has been this past y e a r something to shoot at! Miss Dee Kisses 569th Obstacle 503dMen Got Thrill From Stars John Harms, Wes Larabee, and R d B k Ray Long; Pfc. Willie Kent; and eCOf rea er By CPL. WILLIAM SWARTZ It has been a very glamorous and exciting week for 2d Reporting Company, 503d P v t. Vernon Uren. Then in September came the next great victory. Everyone in the. old 588th didn't g.ripe (as most of us do) about the obstacle course. The A WUTC .. put on an obstacle course meet a.t this time, and four. of the more intrepid strongmen of the Battalion entered-and naturally they won! Sergeant Petzold crossed the line as the clock clicked 2 minutes, 12 seconds. Technician Fourth Howard Stitt was right behind him with 2:15; Sgt. Homer Henderson and Cpl. Weber White followed with 2:30 and 2:50 respectively. The team average for the rugged course was 2 minutes, 28 seconds, and thus another victory was chalked up! And then a look at the calendar said the football season was at hand-and the old 588th shirked neither its duty nor its reputation. Five h .ardy gridders immediately signed up for the Drew Field varsity football team; namely, 1st/Sgt. Ray Armstrong, Sgt. Frank Miseta, Cpl. Tom Brown, and T / 5s Joe Brogger and Gino Petitti. The rest of the gridiron fanciers got together and organized six of the trickiest touch-football teams ever seen. They engaged in intra-battalion tournaments and are still battling it out to find tQ.e victor.

Among the others on the program were Holly wood starlets Neila Hart and Ruth Brody (See torial on page 4 ) HOLLYWOOD STARS DINE WITH 2ND BN., JST AW With the coming of winter and the basketball season occurs the most interesting phase of all the 588th Battalion's sport activities. It is especially interesting at the present time because the season is at its most exciting climax! The story begins Dec. 14, when a group of ex-college and high school cage stars organized a team. They were: 1st Sgts. R a y Armstrong and R Scott; S /Sgt. Bob McAtee; Sgts. Gordon Smith and Bob C arper; Cpls. Bob Ackman, Houston Schlosser, Lyle Crow, Tom Brown, and Bill Noll; Pfc. Ned Mitchell, and Pvt. Paul TewelL Following the two main field events (and Miss Dee' s kiss), the units gave a demonstration of the various types of physical training activities. T h e 765th SAW Company took the Physical Fitness Test. The 563d SAW Battalion' s Hqs. andPlotting Company ran the obstacle course as a unit. The 57 6th SAW Battalion demonstrated the use of the track in doubletiming andl wind-conditioning. The 575th, 569th, and the commando detachment of the 576th gave an exhibition o f the routine in debarkin g from a ship using the net, to complete a full program in which over 700 men participated. shave lotion, but soon realized When "Lowly" GI' s get to eat in a mess hall with Ius-that no enlisted man could af-ford such luxury and there' s an cious-looking movie queens, it's something to talk about! The first game was with the Tampa University cadets. Our boys won On Dec. 21, they played Hq. and Hq. Squad ron of the 3d Fighter Command. Again they won, 32-22. The next night they played a much vaunted Jesuit High School quintet. And they again won, 58-43. By this time they began to realize they were "hot." Three more games followed and in each of them they were victorious. They took Plant Park to the tune of 41-28; the Navy Recruiting team 33-22; and on After the events, Mis s Dee and Miss Brinkle y signe d their autographs for the Gis participating in the program. 2dAWTeam Led by 756th Basketball league competition in the 2d Training Regiment has produced several hard fought ball games.
