Ham! in, creator of the Oop, comes to talk to soldiers. The popular cartoonist whose comic strip is seen in about 700 newspapers will speak at Service Club No. 1 today at 8 p.m. A perpetual clown in the ring, Max Baer mugged his way through a couple of motion pictures and was in a position to make a fortune in Hollywood and on the radio if he could have retained his crown. The Baer that knocked out Max Schmeling in 10 rounds was a killer. The Baer who won the title from Carnera in 11 rounds was a murderer, but the Baer who lost the crown to aging Jimmy Braddock and froze before the punches of Joe Louis SGT.

TALKS HERE TONIGHT By..Camp Newspaper Service The United States Army and Navy have developed a series of deadly new "se cret weapons" that equal and even far surpass anything the Nazis are known to have. One of them is the 75mm. plane cannon now carried by Mitchell bombers. It already has destroyed a Jap destroyer with a single mighty volley, according to reports. Another is a new anti-aircraft gun which will shoot higher than any plane can fly. A third is the new 57-ton tank, a huge monster built at a locomotive plant which is big enough and tough enough to knock out any known tank the enemy can put on the field. The Navy ha:t augmented its great warship building program with the development of some ordnance sen-. sations so amazing that they have astounded the world of science.

' The meanest man of the week is Sgt. Wilburn Brown. Why? He borrowed 10 dollars to go out and enjoy life. (No, not in the sense the "Green Light" speaks of). Cpl. Sam Perry accompanied him, too. They visited a fine Tampa restau rant(?); The steak dinner and liquid nourishment a c c u m u l;d e d to around 'nine bucks. We pause here to inention that, somehow, a beautiful and mysterious girl ate with them. While the waiter stood near the table giving the fish eye, honest Sam could Iiot stand the pressure, so he laid a ten dollar bill on the proper plate. Of course, the others at the table didn't notice this, only when 15 cents worth of clinking change returned. Then two people muttered something unintelligible about helping out on the expense. But the worst rub -of the deal .came when Wilburn flatly told Sam to cle:ar the deck, suggesting the cinema. Soft Sam obeyed. Wilburn had a _lovely time holding with the sweet young thing somewhere in a USO, and came home with 10 dollars he never used. J Pvt. Miozza continues to beautify the barracks of Platoon Two.

It so happened that a rookie KP was sent down to the lake for a bucket of water, and seeing her pink clothes on the bank, sat down to watch. The beautiful Army hostess remained submerged up to her neck until she could no longer stand the chilling water, whereupon she scampered up the bank and found an old dishpan half buried in the mud. Hurriedly digging the pan out, she held it in front of her like a shield and came ashore. "You wouldn't have such a smirk on your face if you knew what I'm thinking," she said. "Oh, I know what you're thinking, all right," said the KP. "You're thinking that pan's got a bottom in it."-Arizona Contact, Phoenix, Ariz.

It's ye o'J.e De Soto Scribe back again with the ultra modern antiques and more idle, gold. brigging chatter. We sho missed y'all chillen while on that fine furlough to the Big City. We maintain that New York city is still the most tasty dish on the dainty menu, to satisfy anyone' s furlough appetite. How ever, we do wish you. and you, and especially you did have one vety, very Merry Xmas. FINDS BUDDY We ran into Pfc. Theodore (Steve) Robinson and we in turn ran into our old "sob sister" Frau Brudder on 86th street on the East side. She is an ace war correspondent at present. She informed us that she had just returned from Hungary and after sam pling several outstanding Hungaria n Dishes she is still hungry. The old Goulash doesn't live there any more. A few things new: Major Alfred B Strickler, former CO of the59th and of our De Soto Area, now CO of Drew Field Base De-. tachment. Lt. Kenneth E. Harrison, former adjutant of the 59th and personnel officer of the Area's Unit Personnel, now Asst. Base Adjutant, .and promoted to First Lieutenant; and Lt. Harold W.

Miss Lor.etta Clarke of New York city became Mrs. Reilly at the marriage ceremony performed at Chapel No. 4 on January 4 Mrs . James J. Hickey and S iSgt., Hickey were the witnesses. Mrs. Reilly is staying temporarily with Mrs. Hickey in Tampa. We expect Reilly to come out of his daze any day now. Our thanks to lVIarine Cpl. Paul R. Lee for the fine talk he gave us on his ex}Jeriences in the islands. He gave us an excellent picture of what A W is doing in the war. He has seen service at Pearl Haibor, Guadalcanal and Tulagi. The other day when alert was sounded, T / 5 Buffe almost didn't make it to his fox hole, It seems that a couple of vines tangled around his neck somewhat slow ing UP his progress. Hehas the scars to prove it, too. BUSINESS AS USUAL Stressed In Mess Talks -Captain Joseph 0. Schreck, Air Inspector, agrees with Napoleon that an army travels on its stomach. Because of this corroboration hf is determined that Drew F ield messhalls serve the best chow in the Army. As the first step in this direction he called a two .md a halfhour conference 'of all mess of ficers and sergeants last Saturday. and serving of all foo. d items was the main topic of the meeting. Stressed particularly was serving hot :::oods while it's hot cold foods before they sag into palate-repelling masses of warm, wilted lettuce, beat-up tomatoes and tepid mayonnaise.

Patterson's Absolutely Right Dear Editor: My idea of a really sad sack is the class of soldier (and I've seen quite a few) who runs like hell to the nearest barracks or covered shelter when he realizes the 5:30 p m retreat about to blow. I believe that any soldier who willfully hustles out of his way NOT to salute the flag of our country is a pretty low class individual and should be disciplined. I believe all officers should be instructed to get the names and ASNs of any men thus caught and that they should be properly punished. Maybe I'm all wet, fellows. What do you think? 1 PVT.

This hat marks him as a man from the wide blue yonder. It is also known as the wash-board model; the galloping crud, or the palpitating skull. BROKEN-HEARTED HAT POPULAR AF FEATURE to Mr. Nathan Hale, manager of Drew Field Cleaners. The dry cleaning establishment, located at. 2d St. and Ave. G right next to the Main PX-is the GI's junction for clothing to be sent out for cleaning and pressing. Because men fail to pick up uniforms that have been ready for delivery for weeks, it has become necessary for the Drew cleaning concern to send many uniforms back forwant of a place to store them. Stating, that officers and enlisted men are cutting service from four to possibly six days by not calling for their garments, Mr. Hale urged everyone who has a u nifo:m at the cleaners to call for it as soon as possible. "Through lack of storage space in which to place cleaned. and pressed garments that have been brought from St. Petersburg," Mr. Hale said, "the truck must carry them back to that city. Ordi narily, the truck would take a load of soiled clothing. As you can see, this is bound to hurt the fellow who wants four-day serv-ice on his uniform." Furlough Rationers Get More Furlough ration money h;i's been upped from 61 cents to 67 cents per day, according to Sgt. Joseph Falconer, ECHOES Base Finance Office correspondent. Soldiers returning from furlough can now receive their ration money within 24 hours. After furlough papers have been duly signed by his commanding officer, the GI has only to present them at the Casual Pay Sec tion of the Base Finance Office for payment in full. In the event that shipment makes it impossible for the soldier to r eceive monetary adjustment at one post, he has only to present his credentials at his next post for immediate payment. Inspects 553d Brig. Gen. Stephen H. Sherrill; Commaning General of A WUTC, inspected the 553d SAW Bat-. talion, now on operational training. With General Sherrill was Major Smithson.

Crossword Answer MORE ABOUT-ALLEY OOP (Continued from Page 1) job . He must have the correct outfit for an ancient warrior of Sicily down to the number of straps on his sandal. "If I don' t have it correct you'd be surprised how many hundreds of letters come pouring in," Hamlin said. Young artists who have aspirations of some time drawing a big-time comic strip will get the inside facts from Hamlin tonight. Hamlin is a veteran of the first world war. He now lives in Sar asota where "plenty of hard work" is spent concocting his Oop adventures. The show's at 8 p .m. in Service Club No. 1. IT IS UNFORTUNATE that the "ax" has to be used at all, but when it does fall, I for one am darned glad that it falls hard on the neck of people who today are breaking the morale, and yes, even the heart of the soldier. A certain "hi hat" place in town recently received the official "spanking" to the tune of $2,500, which ain't hay, but which could have bought War Bonds if the individual had complied with such a simple thing as a price rule. It' s not hard to obey the law. The Army proves that . LET'S CONTINUE with the situation in town. I called a certain address in Tampa. M:;1tter of fact it was on River Cove Avenue in Tampa, and the person who answered the phone (this was in quest of living quarters for a soldier) started eating the Army out for having soldiers who needed to live in town. It IS unfortunate that we have human beings in the Army I suppose, people who have lived normal lives all their time on earth. It is just a little too bad that we have families in America. It would be so much simpler for the apartment owner to rent only to "individuals." You see, in this way, they would not be "bothered" by "soldiers" moving every so often. They wouldn't have the "worry" of changing the linens, and the other things that they do when tenants change. This particular individual, I am referring to, by the way, is an employe of one of the larger Air Bases ... in Tampa. The Army is the reason she is working today. The Army is affording her a living. She likes the Army to afford her a living . BUT SHE DOESN'T WANT TO CO-OPERATE TO THE EXTENT OF HOUSING SOME OF THE ARMY BECAUSE THEY "UPSET" HER ROUTINE I ask ya ... whataya gonna do? HEY, HOW ABOUT you Gls taking your laundry and your cleaning out of the shop here on the Base? Gee whiz, the place is the best you have found, and why do you have to spoil the service by using the place as a closet? Look, it's simple. You bring your stuff in they tell you when it will be ready. Okeh; let's assurrie that it is a day late (Lord knows that ain't bad these days) and so you figure "well I don' t really need it for a few days ... I'll leave it there." What happens? All the other stuff that comes in while yours waits there for you, has to be taken back all the way to St. Pete just because you have the space all taken with storage. Here's what's gonna happen, and you can blame only yourselves. The _place is gonna keep your stuff for week (maybe) then if you don't claim it, it goes back to the plant, and you'll just have to take your chances on getting it back when they can get it to you. Gollies, we try to make things easier for you guys, so that you won't get robbed in town, and so that you get decent service, and you take advantage of it to the extent that you try to walk all over the very people who are attempting to give you a break. It's up to you. IF THE COMIC BOOKS have invaded your home, these statistics may be revealing: Me'mbers of three of every four American families read comic books, a nation-wide survey states. And 95 per cent of boys and girls under 18 go for them. Half of all me, n and women between 18 and 30 are comic magazine readers. An average of 57 per cent of our armed forces read seven comic books a month. Sig nificantly, 82 per .cent of adults surveyed believed comics provide good, clean fun for everybody. S\xty-one per cent found them edu cational. Eighty-nine per cenf of our service men pass their books along. X PUBLISHING-CO. EDITOR'S OlfiCE _ ....,. ._...... : f]ll1 : WE CAN'T,.USE;.YOUR DRIVE 2-'

PAGE FOURTEEN DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 20, 1944 AWS, Signal Men Card 3 Tilts for Week-End MARINES TO PLAY SpotSIJols By PVT. PETE PETERSON Rolling still undefeated with eleven straight wins, the great AWUTC varsity basketball team will tackle the tough Marine team from Dunedin at eight o'clock in Rec. Hall No. 3 tonight. Little is known of the Leathernecks' record but their backers contend that it would not surprise them if the Dunedin five should turn out to SANDS GET KICK out of ECHOES Forum which last week presented-big-league professionals in a "Battle Of The Diamond." Above a few soldiers are seen watching the dugout stars perform at the Bandshell. DUGOUT WHO DUN ITS AIRED IN PRO SHOW ECHOES Cage Team Witty Sensational Fowler; Duncan Good A W Guards Start Mullens. Sitarz Sub By PVT . G. A. OSCHMAN Basketball enthusiasts of Drew F.._ield have begun to .rip the teams apart in quest of the most outstanding individual basketeer on the Base. The 'ECHOES in covering all cage games of teams of this ; comes out boldly and unpr. dicely to state that Lt. . Witty is the most outstandn'i g basketeer on Drew Field. Lieutenant Witty of the '396th Bomb Group Officers' team, has been tagged with all sorts of descriptions and nothing short of sensational can be written about his play. He captained the '37-'38 NYU cage team. There were quite a few re(l faces when Witty dribbled through the A W man for man defense to cut straight down the middle and zip a layup shot off the backboard, a feat duplicated several times in the second game between the two teams. Loose wristed on passes and flips at the basket, Witty can be likened to a tiger awaiting its prey .. when he cuts loose By PVT. G. A. OSCHMAN he's dynamite! How can five strike s be called on a battet in one official time at bat?. Who claimed While Witty is acclaimed the most outstanding eager, the run"Northern Spring training would ruin ball players?"

Coach Lt. Vincent Lusardi believes these Marines (specifically called the U. S. Marine Corps Amphibian TraCtor Detachment) do not pack enough power to take his men. BUSY WEEK-END The A WUTC five is in for a busy week-end, playing three nights in a row. On Friday they will contribute their entire first team to the Drew Field all-stars which play at MacDill against the MacDill Fliers. And on Saturday they will journey to St. Petersburg to tackle the U. S. Maritime Service team in a re' turn game. In their last meeting the A WUTC gang had to come from far behind to finally win by 58 to 48 In tonight' s game, Coach Lusardi hopes to get his men out of the habit of trailing in the first half, with the result that they have had to go all-out in the second to overtake the opposition and go ahead. In three games this season the boys have been behind from 10 to 16 points, only to put on steam in the final period to win by a comfortable margin. BEHfND THREE TIMES These three were once against this same sailor team they play Saturday and twice against the flashy 396th Bombardment Group. Lt Lusardi has pointed out that the boys might meet a team one of these days who will stay ahead once they get such a lead as run up by the sailors and bombers. It is hoped that the first team of Lt. John (The Cat) Fowler, Lt. Aldo (Tiger) Molinari, Pvt. John (Leaning Tower of Pisa) Toomasian, Cpl. Sol (The Fox) Schechter and Lt. "Blockbuster" Lusardi can roll up a big enough lead tonight in order to sit out most of the game and gef some rest for the game with MacDill tomorrow.

Big League l568th Five Hockey News1Leading 5th Bill Cowley, Boston Bruins ace playmaker was injured recently in a Toronto game and is not expected to play for three weeks because of a shoulder separation. Art Ross, Bruins manager claims that C-owley was intentionally "ganged" in back of the Toronto net. In a recent swap Pat Egan of Detroit was sent to Boston in exchange for "Flash" Hollet and so far the deal has worked to the benefit of Dettoit. Eddie Shore the "Babe Ruth" -of Hockey showed Egan all the fine P Oints of the game when Pat broke in at Springfield a few years back. During the playoffs Egan and Shore played for both Springfield and New York Amerks. The Chicago Blackhawks purchased Mike Karakas from the Pr-ovidence Reds for the reported price of $10,000 and two players in order to bolster their defense. Montreal Canadians have a good lead on the rest of the league and the New York Rangers are stiJI in last place. With other teams in the Fifth Training Regiment's league apparently afraid of their strength, the hoopsters of the 568th are seeking outside games. They have already toppled the Headquarters team of the Fourth Training Regiment and last Tuesday night defeated a team from the 751st, 23 to 19. Cpl. Joe Fanning was high scorer for the 568th in this game, taking six points. Safely 'leading the league in the Fifth Training Regiment, the 568th would now like to take on the Headquarters, A WUTC team or any other basketball aggregation on Drew Field. The 568th Commandos have a wealth of basketball stars. The first team is made up of Cpl. Joseph Fanning, Cpl. Joseph De Marco, Cpl. Stephen J. Guman, Pfc. Leonard Hines and Pfc. Paul Reyn.olds. Other topnotch players include 1st Sgt. Richard Bowman, Pvt. Simon Gimbel, Pfc. Norman Herrman, Cpl. Henry Germain and Cpl. John Bateman.
