Asp. who was the Commanding Officer of Drew Ann.y Air Base before it attained the status of an independent field, severed from MacDill on September 15; 1941, was relieved from command today. His new assignment has riot been announced. His successor will be announced within a few days. Colonel Asp, long time Tampa resident, having moved here in 1907 from Pueblo, Colo., took charge of the infant war bird n:est in its early days and dev.eloped it into one of the largest air force installations in the southeast. On Feb: 28, 1928, Colonel Asp helped dedicate the field which was at that time a small cow pasture with an old-time hangar as the main building. Op May 7, 1941, .he took command of the field .and the need for a fighter bastion for all year around training purposes, plus the of the European conflict, increased:. the importance of Drew Field." BORN;' jror WEST Asp :was born in .Pueb lo, Col< {;' on April 18, 1893, the son of a pioneer mechanic who took pint in the race for territory on the Oklahoma Cherokee Strip in 1891.

LOUIS HYTOWITZ I 2 HANGER QUEEN: 8/Sgt. Lowell "Red" Lueck of the 592d Bomb Squad, is complaining these days of slow trains. On his recent furlough, "Red" resented the snail-like pace of the dinky little train on which he found himself. He stamped up to the conductor and remarked with elaborate irony, "Will this r ailroad company allow a mere military man to give it some advice if it is done in a respectful manner?" The conductor allowed that he could speak his piece. "Well, growled Lueck, "why don' t you t ake the cow chaser off the front of that d amn engine of yours and h itch it to the rear of the train? It is obvious that we'll never overtake a c ow, and what is to prevent a cow strolling into this car and biting a passenger?"

DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 1944 PAGE THREE '' fi MAX WERNER ON THE COURSE OF THE WAR: : : { [!?d Wh y the Nazis Admit They're Beaten Russia }f: :"/. By MAX WERNER In the past weeks a German military expert has twice drawn the picture of the present military situation-presenting the darkest analysis ever heard from German '\ sources. These were the radio speeches of Kurt von Dittmar, Reduced to their bare substance, the assertions of :;;::: this representative of the German high command \: were that: {' The Red army has everything necessary fot vic:,:,; tory. The wehrmacht holds no military assets any more. The outlook for warfare is desperate. as ... His explanation ofGerman defeats _in the east is very. i_,_t_:i_,i,, simple: the Red army is stronge r than the wehrmacht in every respect. ... "In everything that can be expressed in numbers __ ,:_,!!! the Red army is far superior," said Von Dittmar, and he means numerical superiority as well as-superiority !i:ili in weapons. i'} The German analyst gave not only a c alcula.tion of !it general factors but also the concrete picture of the } present big battle. He is convinced that the Red army superiority, especially in shock troops, motorized corps and hdivisions,bisf even larger in this Rus-sian offenstve t an ever e ore. Hi Hespoke of "tremendous numbers of Russiancan-j):; power. to the Russian assault." And he said "the Red army is using tremendous fire power, and its mobility is well developed, technically as wen as organizationally." :lJ.' ."But all this was only introduction. Gen. Dittmar ; :.r,-:ii_::>._.',,;l_,,:_;:i .. more than adequately armed, superior force with unslackened -will for fighting" of the Red army. And speaking about the race of the two military strategies, he added: @ "In many respects we are surpassed here; too, by @ the Russian leadership." (i This means the recognition of the qualitative su_;_t_!.,_!_l_,! c::::e:: -:_: front-must be very gloomy for the wehrmacht 1f dur the course of this critical struggle the speaker for LONG fSLANO DRAWN TQ SAME 0 30u MiLES s. R, Kharkove the German army says bluntly that it is succumbing because of its weakness. "Too big is the disparity between' offensive and defensive power1 Too stressed is our inferiority the enemy's superiority can overflow us ... With this confession General Dittmar reveals a military crisis of unheard of dangers for the wehrmacht and opportunities for its O:pponents. But if the relationship of power is so desperate for the wehrmacht, what can its hopes be? The only odds General Dittmar evokes are the leadership and the national consciousness of the German people. and army: "Otherwise it would now be the beginning of t'i the end or even the end itself." ;::: ]':'his means thaththe wehrmacht can rely on no mi 1tary factors in t e exact sense any mo_re but only on the quality of leadership and on the morale of the ;::::= army and of the home front. General Dittmar's conf:: elusion is that there is only one strategy feasible for ,:{ Germany: to save the living force of the army at any price. His solution would be swift and deep retreat :::::: to preserve the fighting power of the army. ::::': But what the German high command is doing now is just the contrary. The' main German forces on the :::':: southern front are still left in two large. pockets, in the Dnieper bend and on the middle Dnieper. The envelopment of the eastern tip of the German army !!'!'! facing the Dnieper bend has now reached a depth of :-.': almost 400 miles. If the German army is too weak for ::::;: a counter-blow as General Dittmar convincingly stat.,.,, ed, then the German high command has placed the we'hrmacht in conditions most unfavorable for de-fense. mf The whole of the German defense system in Russia is actually based on two communication centers: Zhme1inka in the south and Dvinsk in the north. With their loss 'the entire German front from the I Balticf1to kthe s_ea1wtildl bfe unhtrhnged, tbothfGerman an s Wl e rso a e rom e cen raJ ront, the German northern army will be pressed against =t! the Baltic coasts and the southern army group against the Black sea coasts. \:: The German high command did not adapt its strategy to the limited forces of its eastern front, and :::;;: Hitler failed to regroup the wehrmacht there for the defense of vital objectives. General Dittmar's radio addresses were desperate cries for a purposeful de{i!. :i'ense strategy in the eleventh hour. ri He tried to present Gerri:tan military leadership :_,!_,'_,!_,:!_,!1_, determined. He did not even say that the wehrmacht is weaker than the anti-Hitler coalition. He said bluntly that the wehrmacht is weaker than the Red army al!Jlle But if this implies the issue of campatgn on the Russran front, so much more does it indicate the issue of the combined Anglo-AmericanRussian offensive. Dittmar' s speech proved that the wehrmacht in Russia is on the brink of strategic exhaustion, that is to say unable to fulfill the urgent tasks of defense. Allied strategy cannot-overlook the opportunities implied in this crisis of the enemy. 3d.

Weekly Religious Services Sunday, January 30 We have no way of knowing the cost to the enemy of that single day's work by our fliers over Germany. We can guess that it was tremendous. If the usually accurate bombardiers had clear weather and an unimpeded run over their targets, the Messerschmitt factory and other war plants marked on the aerial maps are now at least partially in ruins. Production is slowed or halted on vital war materials. As costly to the Germans, however, must have been the loss of 186 fighter planes which our Air Force says were positively destroyed by that flight of bombers. Hillsborough county's share in the Fourth War Loan Drive is $13 081,700 or more than $68 for each person in this county. If the call for buying additional War Bonds in January seems irksome to you, or if you think Uncle Sam does not need your money to win the war, reflect for a minute on the cost to us of a SINGLE DAY' S OPERATION, IN A CHAPEL LOCATIONS Chapel 1-A ve.

In other words, how come WACs can we.ar the OD skirt and khaki shirt outdoors, wh1le men must stick to OD trousers and shirt? It doesn'tqmake sense. ca.v you enlighten me? PFC. MORTON HOWARD. Secret Sud Sack Dear Rag: A few nights ago, some of the fellows were, as usual, down at the "Beer Garden." Suddenly they spied a "peeping Tom" gazing over the fence. What they would like to know is:Is it a visi tor? Could it be a saboteur? Or just another Drew Field soldier? (Of course, if he' s the latter he's definitely in the "sad sack" minority!) The boys give me any peace until I ask you to find out who it is. So won' t you drop everything, and get every member of your staff busy on this strange case? Maybe this sketch will help you to find the mystery man. The boys swear they won't back until they find out who the night-watcher 1s. "THE BAR B. 0. BOYS" The ECHOES is mighty interested in your letter and we have had six reporters lurking about said beer palace for several nights. Our -only answer to your worry is this: _Two days before your letter was received, the ECHOES Insect Editor was lounging about this place. Could it have been she?-Ed. Wants Honor Quintet Editor, The ECHOES, Sir: Before I entered the Army I was a devoted follower of collegiate basketball. I'm from the West Coast (California to you Crackers) and during my few years ot' so-called adulthood I've seen players like Hank Lusetti of Stanford and his gang, along with some of' the top Southern California fives. The big coast colleges always had some Mid-Western or Eastern quintet on their schedule and it was a pleasure to see them play. But here's my point: I believe that Drew Field has some of the classiest basketball teams ever put on the har.dwood. Of course, most of the. players .aren't at their peak becaues basketball, like any sport, requires perfect teamworlc with members, and this teamwork comes only through months of playing together. I'd like the ECHOES to nominate an All-Base Basketball five after the season ad I believe thees players should receive some kind of medal or trophy. The top five on this Base wot.jld be one sweet outfit and I'd like to see them play wtih a crack collegiate outfit. Florida For Him Sir: PFC. JAMES GRIFFIN Florida' has my vote for the finest all-weaiher state in the Union. We hear a lot about the weather arounp here not being like theChambers of Commerce say, but I'll doff my hat to the winter sun. I was in Ohio a few weeks ago and I should know. Didn't see the sun for six days and believe me it was COLD. More power to the local C of Cs. They have something to brag about. SGT. ANDREW GOLISKI To the Kcmsas Plains Dear Editor: Writing this letter from our "Gold Briekers Paradise" and locming around, I just happened to see some of the Third Air Force boys reading the camp news. Our camp news is similar to the ECHOES, but the ECHOES is a larger and more informative newspaper. We would greatly appreciate a few copies of the ECHOES with the news of our friends of Drew. Formerly of the 9th Fighter Command on Drew, I remain, PVT.'JOHN RAGO, 376th Base Hq. and Air Base Squadron, Smoky Hill Army Airfield, Salina, Kansas Read your smoke signals from the Kansas plains and the ECHOES is forthcoming.

Yet, there's something to that line in the natives' lingo, "sand in your shoes." Maybe they get a yearly rate from the Chamber of Com -nerce, but I doubt it. See you in Tampa, every winter after the war. (Well, who knows?) JUST BACK from a three-day pass. Feelin' great. and what a three-day pass? you ask. I dunno. Guess the only way to describe it is "a state of supreme bliss." Yeah, and it only took me four and a half years in the Army to rate one. (Well, it seems that long.) SPEAKING OF PASSES always reminds me of furloughs. (Well, so what? I can dream.) And furloughs remind me of the misfortune (?) of a buddy of mine. (We'll call him Bud.) Seems Bud had a furlough once. No kiddin'! He rushed to Pittsburgh the minute the papers were signed, to marry his girl. But no dice. Two days before he got there, she married the chaplain! Tell your troubles to ??????? WHEN YOU'RE IN TOWN (well, you can always hope-for what??) take a look at the north window of the Knight-Wall Hardware Co. It' s a Fourth War Loan Display, and a good one. That slick model plane with the dame on its nose is the work of a Drew Field man, Lt. Frank Willson. Damn good job, and very complete. (The dame is in bas relief. ) He did it in less than a week, too. HANGING RIGHT OVER MY HEAD is a hangman's noose. The editor says it'll fit my neck perfectly. All I have to do is slam him once in print .. or w ait until deadline day again next week. Oh, me. What a helluva way to make a living. (Yeah, but who said this was living, anyway?) GUESS THAT GUY, creator of Alley Oop, V. T. Hamlin, made quite a hit with the boys the other night. Me, I managed to edge in and get one of those autographed strips, myself. Had a nice talk with Hamlin, too. Quite a guy. Reminds you a lot of "Viii Rogers-same brand of humor, same half-cocky, nonchalant manner. Was a very good friend of Rogers', t()o. Maybe that's why. Hamlin will be back in a couple of months. Has some kind of a machine rigged up which will reflect his cartoons, life-size (even Oop), as he draws them. Has a pretty red-headed daughter he's promised to bring along, too. (Don't fellows. I put in my bid first. ) I'VE GOT A COUSIN in the Navy, somewhere down near the tip of New Guinea. Seems there were some Seabees there, too. Now, this cousin is a mere youngster, just nineteen (well, I'll be twenty in March) and his mother, a widow, is still a blo"omin' beauty. Her name before she was married was Alice Brown. ONE NIGHT Dick (my cousin) was day-dreaming in the corner while a bunch o Seabees buzzed a little way from him. One of 'em raised his voice to say: "Dreamed last night about a girl I haven't thought of in years. My first sweetheart, I guess. Dreamt I was kissing her. Girl by the name of Alice Brown. Married a chap named Jackowski." Well, Dick_ couldn't believe his ears. He sidled up to the Seabee, and told him HIS hame was Jackowski, and his mother's name had been Alice Brown. Sure enough, the story fitted\ together, and the Seabee, a bachelor, asked Dick for his mother' s address. The upshot of it all-well, you guess. Auntie hasn't said yes, but I'm betting on, a new uncle. JUST HEARD about the new cut rates at our PX. The exalted malted has finally come within reach. I'd cheer, if I thought my strength would hold out. Sounds damn good to guys in the $50-a month category. (Money-what is it? And to think I used to make $15 a week, too. ) MOST AMAZED PRIVATE I ever saw was the one who cocked his best military salute to greet an approaching colonel. The colonel snapped back a real smarty, stopped and said: "Isn't this is a grand day? Nice and warm for January, isn't it? In fact, it's to.o hot. I feel as though I were roasted turkey." to each of the officer's remarks the private answered, "Yes, Sir." (Both were sweating in ODs in Florida weather.) Juice for Health Of If HARD TO GET FRESH ORANGE JUICE isn't hard to get at Main PX's new juice bar-as is evidenced by Capt. Donald Evans, Post Exchange officer, who takes time out to join three enlisted men for a quick pick-up. With Capt. Evans is SjSgt. L. C. Pfluger, 592d Bomb Sq. (left), S/Sgt. Bruno H.

In May, 1918, he received his wings at Kelly Field and was commissioned a second lieutenant. He remained at Kelly Field where he served as an' instructor. cin 1919 he was promoted to first lieutenant. His genuine Interest in aviation was clearly manifested when in 1922 he perfected the "first successful small plane," the Asplane, which he flew from Ellington Field to Kelly Field, Tex., on its initial flight. BAD CRASH In 1924, while serving in Pan-' ama, the colonel (then a first lieutenant) was involved in a collision in midair about 75 feet off the ground and was declared dead officially for 15 minutes. His face was smashed to a pulp, his right eye was found in the mud, and he was taken to the morgue. Several hours. later a doctor discovered signs of life in him and he was rushed to surgery.

Showing increasing prowess withthe 30 caliber carbine, thus far this month the Deadeye Dans from 1st Ttaining Regiment have set up an amazing shoot-ing record. When the smoke cleared, 18 experts, 108 sharpshooters, 179 marksmen were ready for their medals, having compiled a near-90 per cent qualification record.

What used to be Company B, C, or Headquarters of' the 588th SAW Bn, became Company F, G, li, I or K of the 2d Bat. talion of the 1st T-raining Regiment. Aside from the early confusion of moving and the trouble with the new address, the new system is really working out very nicely. The greatest advantage of this new set-up is that both the officers and the enlisted men working together in the schools are assigned to the same companies. In this way any problems that arise can be dealt with quickly and decisively, without much of the red tape that was encountered in the past. COs NAMED. Sgt.
