PAGE TWO DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1943 Apprentice WACs Lecirn Artof Greasing Planes Out on the Line, seasoned masculine technicians are scratching their heads, as 23 new mechanics grasp wrenches and go to work. No toughened "grease monkeys," these new apprentice mechanics fill the pockets of their coveralls with lipstick, powder compacts, and an occasional lace-edged handkerchief. Once more, the WACs have "taken over" at Drew Field. Doing a man-sized job is not a new practice. to this attractive group of WACs recently imported from Fort Myers, Va. For the eight months prior to their short. stay at Fort Myers; these girls have lived in dugouts, operated' anti-aircraft instruments, and lived the rugged existence of hardbitten soldiers. Shortly after the first enlisted personnel's classes were inducted into the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps at Fort Des Moines, !a., 212 young women w e r e singled out of the busy hum of training girls, to become a part of a vastly import a n t experiment. Only WAACs with 1st Sgt. BettY: unusually high Baker mechanical ap-titude, intelligence, and personality were considered as candidates for tf!is, the only WAC "combat" group ever to be formed. By the time they departed for Washington, D. C they had learned to think and to act as one person.

During the eight-month training period, the girls underwent 162 "brass hat" inspections. WAC Director Hobby made three surprise inspections. At one time, the company was rev.iewed by 165 officers of the United States Navy Although the experiment of training women as instrumental experts for comabt duty proved to be very successful, it was necessary to dispense with the group. At the present time, there are not enough women 'enrolled in the service of the United States to warrant the singling out of me chanically talented girls for work which ,still requires the use of masculine crew members to lift heavy equipment. The other. -day, Sergeant Baker proudly marched her group over to the Line. "They're the finest girls in the country," she informed the waiting officers anct curious soldiers. "Sometimes, I suppose, the girls have thought me a pretty tough top-kick. But, today, seeing them march on to this field, knowing the kind of performance they are capable of turning out-well, you'll just have to excuse me,. if I shed a few tears!" Betty, whose ambition up until a short while ago was to receive orders for foreign duty, now would "rather have the war end, but quickly." TwG weeks ago she became the wife of one of the soldiers stationed at the Arboretum. When asked why .she joined the WAC, she said; "Oh, that was simple. I wasn't doing enough. I ran a bowling alley nights, and a shipping department days. And, oh yes, I drove, out at a nearby Army Air Base, every Saturday and Sunday. I had to get into uniform. I wanted to do some thing!" iOOKS PI?E:T1Y GOOD, U? T'$ ErG I <;QME r= tT'5 G(1/N& C>ARK (Author's note: Due to the fact that Pvt. Pazzbelch. has wired desperately urging further directions as to how to get to Shangri La we have omitted the question and answer department this week.) And now to further advise our friend, Pvt. Mustygoolp Vitfit el Pazzbelch along the. road to Shangri La! Now, Pazzbelch, after you have left the Ouch people selling snatchfrong sandwiches you will turn. both left and right at the same time on the road made out of pudding. This. pudding was left there by a Greek who failed in the resta rant business on the yonder side of Mongaria. Then y<. will come to two strange varlets who will try to set you on fire. Just for fun, they will say. Do not let them. They mean business. They burn up more guys every year along about this time "just for fun." Keep turning to the left until you off the pudding road and then stop for a snack at Homely Harry's Horrend.ous Bullburger stand. H you don't stop at Homely Harry's he will throw you in a well. But beware of Homely Harry's. The joint is full of Booby Traps and when you sit in a booth and begin to order he will crawl under the next booth, sneak up behind you and try to saw off your right leg, quick like. You see, you are getting closer to Shangri La now and you will be meeting desperate characters.. Do not take Homely Harry lightly. He bas sawed off many a leg at .his joint, especially after customers drank two or three of his Lifter" cocktails. These Stump Lifters are made of three parts of Squoop Acid (acid used to dissolve glaciers), floor scrapings from a slaughter house and a dash of gooseberry juice. Do not drink more than one, even if Homely Harry offers you more for free. But you must drink one. Then Homely Harry also sells, besides Bullburgers, a squeelnang sandwich, whic. h is made out of halitosis, one glove and brown sugar. Eat just one and get the hell out of there. Once up the road you will run into John Fut de Bpomstaff's niece, by name of Miss Rat Hair de Boomstaff. She will have just escaped from a Mongarian reform school to which she was sent for making m >on shine out of tar paper. Miss Rat Hair will want to go juking, but have no truck with her because she has a plot for a short story which she will try to sell you and if you don't buy it sh.e will pour some of her tar paper moonshine on you and you will have to bury your clothes to get the aroma off. Miss Rat Hair's plot for a short story is rather involved and she has been thrown out of every publish.ing office this side of Mongaria while. trying to sell it. This plot is for what she calls an unsolvable mystery story. She defies the reader, or anyone else, to name the real killer. Here's the catch. She has exactly nine seven thousand characters in her story and they all have the name of Randolph Glockenspiel. Randolph Glockenspiel is the name of the victim, the killer, the detective, etc., etc., etc., and a couple of more etcs. Don't. let her get a chance to tell you this story. It takes about three weeks to tell it all the time she swigs on her tar paper moonshine and occasionally branches out into singing "Clementine" in three-part harmony to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw. Your only possible reward for this ordeal is to get poured with foul-smelling tar paper moonshine. So when Miss Rat Hair asks you to go juking tell her "excuse me but I have wea. k kidneys" and start to run like anything in all directions like you were in a panic. After you have eluded this odd character y>Ou will come_ to a strange old man who will be biting the road. N.u one seems to know why this old fellow bites the road all day long, but it is said some 90 years previous he stubbed his toe at this point and is trying to get even. Now you are getting into dangerous territory. There will be a cluck coming alongwildly playing a caliope and he will try to sell you the month of July. He insists that he inherited this month and will try tQ palm it off on you for forty cents. But all he wants that forty cents for is to buy a barrel of Miss Rat Hail's tar paper moonshine. Elude him Turn the next corner and if a purple house with a hole in the backyard is not there pay no attention. You will now begin to he'ar a strange, high pitched sound and you will know you will be coming to the land of the Squealing People. These people were born under ice cold showers. By the way, have you met Professor Neatball van Sayforgoonessake? He is a graduate of the Institute for How to Mend a Lame Camel. He will. be a t Silly Solly's tonight and will tell you how :n boil lumber in yo 1r own kitchen. Bring my fee. Fire College Conclave Ends Capt.

DREW FIELD ECHOES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1943 PAGE THREE UNCLE SAM DISCOVERS Alcan Highway Blazed ENEMY WEAPON TO USE (Prepared by S-2 Section, AWUTC Headquarters) There's weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth Berlin and Tokyo these days-and for obvious reasons. Uncle Sam's children have done picked themselves up otf the floor where the sneak punches at Pearl put them. In fact, we now are stomping the Axis into the ground. To make matters worse for Adolph and Tojo we've stolen a page from their favorite book and we're using it against them. Not only are we outslugging them on all fronts, but we're outsmarting them too. VICTORY ESS_ENTIAL We have learned that our armed forces. weapon more devastating, more demoralizing, other when their movements are veiled in secrecy. The war has shown us that with secrecy comes surprise and with surprise comes victory. WE LEARN WELL The proof that we have learned .the lesson well, in our successful surprise landings in North Afr. ica, Guadalcanal, Sicily, Italy, Attu, Kiska and other points scattered all over the globe. Gone are the days when the Axis hordes were overrunning the world. Gone are the days when we never knew when or where the enemy was going to strike us next-or whether we could withstand the blow. Gone are the days when we actually feared invasion. Here is the rood as it begins to resemble impressions. This is the work of the for ward echelon which sometimes w9rked ahead scores of miles from the bose outfit, often stranded without prOVISions for weeks or months at a time. The rood is now finished and is carrying vital war goods to Alaska, thanks to the effort of the United States Army. Stretching for approximately 1,500 miles through hitherto unconquered land, the Alaska-Canada highway stands today a proud symbpl of Yankee daring and guts. The above picture shows a strip of comparatively good terrain which soon will feel the bite of bulldozers and other modern equipment as workers finger their way northward toward the Yukon. Today the tables are reversed-with a vengeance. The Axis is bewildered, tired, on the verge of panic. It screams that we don't fight fair, meaning that we don't telegraph our punches and that we manage to get there "fustest with the mostest." Today we stand ori a point from which all roads lead to Berlin and Tokyo. The enemy is stretching his forces and his nerves dangerously thin trying to patrol all the roads. -.We have but to choose the road he isn't watching and he'll get the surprise .of his life, or rather the ,surprise that will end his life. ROAD AHEAD Our blueprint for victory is logical and. clear. Anyone can understand it. Certainly the enemy does, and isn't happy in the knowledge. Now that we possess the upper Major George V.

And through it all Van Fossen sat with the neck of the bottle in his hand, as innocent as a newborn babe.
