Some don’t guess I’ll get mine tomorrow. It usually strikes the second day— groan, groan. Mister Hermon picks a swell night to pull a dive from the top bunk to the floor. Seems one night last week Harmon, Haskins and Hancock had a visitor from Squad ron Four to bunk with them, and his sack was spread right beside Harmon’s second story boudoir. In the still of the night, Mister Har mon dreams he has the stick in hand. Well, he can’t fly all night so he decides to shoot a landing. Unfortunately, for the visitor, he lands right in his back. Still sleep ing, Harmon apoligizes and climbs aboard again; the next day he for gets the incident. It’s still a touchy subject to him. What’s the matter, fellow, can’t you ride that sack? Comes the time to congratulate everyone on last Saturday morn ing's performance for dear Mac. Did you notice that his average pulls of the sailcloth dropped con siderably? And just as I was go ing to take a count on him. Mister Larsh must have gotten out of the wrong side of the bed last Saturday morning, for he real ly gave Mr. Dow a good laugh. Re covering from a spill on the first hurdle, he does another tailspin on the second hurdle. He just grew along with his feet. That was a nice looking Guidon we carried before us in the last re view, don’t you think? But let us add some more ribbons on to it, s.nd then it will really be something worthwhile looking at. We hate to ride our officers, but Mr. Bates at 8 o’clock we have mess, and not reveille. The schedule had been changed last Wednesday, remember ? Mister Rousseau has a new mot to: Be wise, live and learn. Exper ience does teach you a lot. “Pete” Trembesky says one thing and does another. You shouldn’t have played that game. We’ll admit it is a rough deal to pack all those clothes just for a couple hours. Consolation will like ly be in the form of a punched and signed card, good for a week or so—he hopes. This is your local correspondent, signing off—asking you to remem ber, there are only thirty-three more shopping days till Christmas. Mr. Droegemeier would make a very poor Santa Claus. He buys presents and then they look so good to him that he keeps them for himself. Contact Squadron II Gentlemen, the time has come for a reckoning. Much has been said in this and other columns about being on the bal, and it’s about being on the ball, and it'^ about not being on that proverbial ball. There are certain members of this squadron who must have come into cadets thinking it was a soft touch. To these persons we say, “Didn’t anyone tell you that this was the toughest racket there is, requiring men—real men — with the guts to take it on the chin and men who are willing to give up nearly anything to be the top men that the Army Air Forces flying officers are.” The pilots, bombardiers and navigators are the heros of the day and are look ed up to by all the woidd as the men who are delivering the blows to those dogs, where it hurts. Most of, us here have been in the army long enough to know that those in command will do their utmost in appreciation of genuine soldiering and are hand-tied to exei’t any ef forts for a group who can not live up to standards. But, and we do say it with regret, there is a cer- tain small minority who will not conform and who aren’t doing their best to prepare for the hard er works to come. We know that fai’ther along the line the reckon- Wesley Foundation Meets Every Wed. Night at 7:00 P. M. The Wesley Foundation, the Methodist Student organization at A. & M., will begin regular Wed nesday night Fellowship meetings. The first such gathering will be Wednesday, November 17, at 7:00 1 p.m., at the Methodist Church, ac cording to Harry Sims, Foundation president. These midweek affairs will include games and recreation, refreshments, business, and devo tion. All Aggies and servicemen on the campus will be welcomed at the Methodist Church Wednesday at 7:00 p. m. ACID James L. AJ Lama -BdRor-m-Chiaf F. W.

IV Editor Aviation students of the 308th College V Editor | Training Detachment. CoHego Station. Spotlight on Sports On Saturday morning a group of squadron I boys were dismissed from P. E. for a certain detail. This so called detail was a football game with squadron II. The squad ron I boys carried out their as signment by defeating squadron II by a score of 26 to 19. The score indicates a close game and it was. Squadron II passers sure pass a hot pas, ask some of their receiv ers. It seems the “Big game,” between Squadron I and V was again canceled. Lets get together and play this game, it’s for the championship. In a little scrimmage Saturday afternoon Squadron I defeated a few of the A. S. T. P. boys. The A. S. T. P. boys had never played Air Corp rule, and were beaten before they caught on to the com bination basketball and football game. They did run up the score in the last quarter but it was too late. Squadrons III and IV have not participated i any Fotoball games. Get your teams together and get a few games cheduled. Sqaudron I and II had a little basketball scrimmage Sunday night, which turned out to be quite a game the score was 33 to 32 in favor of squadron I. Neither squad ron had all their players present. The Turkey Day game to be played here between Texas Uni versity and the Aggie will no doubt take the spot light as one of the nations important games. The Air Corps are backing you up Aggies, you have done a swell job this season and we wish you luck against your rivals. A bit of national news on foot ball teams—he so called “Fighting Irish”, of Notre Dame did it again to prove their undisputed tit le of the Nations No. 1 team, by defeating Northwestern by a score 25 to 6. The Irish were led by 18 year old Lujack and Miller. Otto Graham starred for North western. faavy smeared Columbia by a score of 61 to 0. ing shall come, but in the mean time those men who are here to take advantage of the greatest op portunity for present accomplish ment and future security, deeply resent any reflections that might be cast on them as a group. In representation of them, we say, “Come on fellows lets sit down for an accounting and get up the right guy and aviation cadet you can be. Think this over fellow, there is no greater accomplishment than to be considered by the boys as a ‘Good Joe. ’” ‘Nuff said—on the lighter side: Beavers, you don’t stand a chance at our big affair next week end. The low down is you’re going to have competition from two plat inum blondes Messrs. Yeutte and Weeks have taken to peroxide as a hair dressing in a vain effort to make the hearts of those lassies go pit-pat. It is with two-fold regret, that we say goodbye to our over-bril liant Mr. Levine. Not only shall we miss seeing his smiling face in our ranks, but it leaves your scribes short handed. We call for volunteers. “You, you, and you.” Reports from the gala affair at the country club say that our band wgs strictly all-reet and have been asked for a return engagement. Also at the country club Satur day evening, could be seen our man of the hour, Mr. James I. King, relieved of his nuptial obli gations, and gaily tripping the light fantastic. Reports have it that said gentlemen went to bed with a bucket the same night. The gentlemen of ramp 9, Pur- year Hall, noted with interest that our genial gent, Mr. James took no less than 20 showers and 15 shaves over the weekend. We understand a visiting WAC of his very good acquaintance was the reason for this strange behavior. Well Gentlemen, until we get together next inking time, remem ber this: “A woman begins by re sisting your advances, and finish es by cutting off your retreat.” Wing News Eager Beavers take note: There are only five more shopping days until time for our November, 20th Wing Ball; hence, it means that hurry up last minute telephone calls must be made to complete that uncertain date you are trying to get. The name of the winner of the Sweetheart Contest is out and from all descriptions Miss Mary Patricia Travis is above even the committee’s enthusiastic expecta tions. It just goes to prove that the students taste for women is pretty good. To quell all rumors students are asking about who is who, we print an extract from a past daily bul letin. The question has been ask ed numerous times “who is who about our student officers?” Here it is. A/S Ronald Robson, Wing Com mander A/S Robert Sheldon, Wing Ad jutant A/S Hubert J. Iffrig, Jr., Wing Supply Officer A/S Homer L. Stanart, Group II Commander A/S Robert W. Picard, Group II Adjutant A/S James L. Anderson, Group II Officer A/S Paul R. Bard, Group I Sup ply Officer. The Air Corps Dance Orchestra from' this detachment kept the patrons of the Country Club in Bryan swaying with, cheek to cheek waltz’s this past Saturday night. Features of the orchestra is the trio, the sweet sex, and the hot trumpet. More of each, Mr. Bosert. The pictures submitted for the contest will be returned as quick ly as possible. You can get them either by waiting until they are distributed or by calling for them from the Contest Committee from the individual squadrons. Lt. Jack G. Norris, our adjutant, is back with the detachment again after a short illness. We are glad you are back and that it was only a short illness. -APPEARANCES- make under the direction of their leader, “Pop” Jenkins, who has been director for the past two years. Jenkins will leave for Arlington to become Associate Professor of Music at the North Texas Agri cultural College November 22. Euell Porter of Bryan, who will take Jenkins’ place was heard to make a remark concerning the ‘difficult’ ask confronting him, for “it is not hard to replace one who had done very little, but it is very difficult to replace one who has made such outstanding accomplish ments with the Singing Cadets of Aggieland.” LISTEN TO WTAW 1150 k.c.

Grover, who has been receiving special training for the last month. We see the color of the bar . as changed to silver. We want to con- giatulate you on the new advance ment. Mr. Resnick sure got a big sur prise when he ordered a steak at one of the cafe’s in Bryan. The steak was big enough to feed three or four men. But what did our friend do but losen his belt and eat the whole thing. You must remember there is a shortage of meat. Father Clanagan takes care of his boys at Boy’s Town. So we have “POP” A/S Carson to look after us and try and keep us out of trouble. It seems as though we had a good record this week, so let’s keep on the ball. We are work ing for the same thing so their is no use in losing out during our last few days while here. Friday night was a busy night for the Squadron V members, the broom were swishing, the mops’ a splashing, the brass a-shining, so that on Saturday morning the rcoms would be in the best of or der. All the members were stand ing in their rooms for personal and room inspection. We were really surprised to see the lovely Miss, Mr. Dixon escort ed to the Bryan Country Club. He seemed to be having a grand time, and who wouldn’t with a lovelie like her. Congratulations and Happy Birthday to A/S Castelluccio and A/S Persy the November birthday boys.

So until the next time when the full staff is present we will bid you goodnight. Another of those solicitous lad ies was strolling down a street and came upon a soldier who had lost his leg in active service. She stop ped, and clucked sympathetically. “You poor man,” she said, “You’ve lost your leg.” The man looked down politely and said, “Well I’ll be damned- so I have.” An American flier stuck a flask of brandy in his boot just before he took off on a raid over the con tinent of Europe. Forced to bail out into the Channel, he kept nipping on the flash while floating around in the water. When rescuers found him he was a bit rocky, and as suming that he was suffering from exhaustion the captain suggested to be below. With offended dignity the Yank replied.” I’ve never yet stayed where I wasn’t wanted,” and dived overboard. They finally fished him out again. Apologies were made so he stayed. God made the world—and rested, God made man—and rested, Then God made women, Since then neither God nor man has rested. Monticello College, Alton, 111., is starting its 106th year this fall. NAVY MEN Let Us Do Your Altering LAUTERSTEIN’S LOUPOT’S Trade Wtih Lou — He’s Right With You! Hangar Flying Sqaadroa III Following are a few quips taken out of Log Magazine for Naviga tors: Extract from a combat report: “Saw JU-88 above clouds. I dived and closed to about 1,000 feet, fired from line astern as it enter ed into the sun. In desperation I fired a long burst into the sun and a ME-109 fell out in flames. Among prisoners taken in North Africa was a Polish soldier who had been captured by the Russians in 1939, released by them after the German invasion of Russia to serve in the Russian army in 1940, taken prisoner by the Ger mans in 1941, drafted into the German army in 1942, transferred to North African duty and finally captured by the American troops in Tunisia in 1943. An interview with Lt. Drieseszum as taken from the Log Magazine. Lt Drieseszum took part in many combat missions' and took part in the first large scale bombing raids over Europe. Did you ever use small scale Cercators, such as Astropraghs mercators ? No, we always had the usual VP’s. What can you tell us about your duties in the air, other than navi gation duties, for instance as an observer, gunner, photographer, etc. Photography is done automat ically by switch in the nose, ope rated by the navigator. All I had to do was push a switch when the bombs were dropped. The naviga tor must know as much as he can about meterology to aid the pilot. He must also know about the dut ies of the radio operator and be come familiar with his work. I had to learn how to to get “QM’s and the basic fundamentals of radio procedure. As far as the bombardier is con cerned I worked with him to in crease his ability at piloting, to help him in knowing where he was and to assist him with his interrogation after a mission. A navigator should get as much pil oting as pbssing- Piloting was not stressed enough when I was a cadet. One cannot get too much piloting or become too proficient in it. Thumbs Up Sqaadroa IV Gather around men and hear the latest dirt coming straight from one who can dish it out—can you take it? There’s a fellow roaming around Ramp I who has some priceless candid camera shots. If you’re in terested in photography—or should I say a laugh—look up one Mr. Johnson. This gentleman is espec ially fond of the picture of John son and Virginia. Mr. Johnson seems to be saying, quote (with variations) Charles Boyer, “Let me run through your hair bare footed, Virginia,” Another espec ially sharp shot was taken of Mr. Fairchild and Mr. Edwards on the floor—well I won’t say what they .were doing, but it wasn’t ty ing shoe strings. Aviation Student Dwight O. Barnes, a six foot four specimen of Kansas Manhood, has reported his shower (out of order) for the tenth time to our C. O. When ask ed what was wrong, Mr. Barnes replied—“Sir, I turn it on and the hot water has to hit the ceiling be fore it hits me and its cold by that time. Since I am alergic to cold water, I have missed my Saturday night bath which I usually take once a month.” Squadron Four has something new on its way. From all reports, Mister Harold Dale not only sings well, but he also carries on quite an interesting conversation in his sleep. We are looking forward to the first time one combines these' features. We wonder what those strange noises over in Ramp G could be that Mr. Vande Venter and Mr. Werner, have taken such a dislike to. (Take it easy on the poor guy —maybe he likes to sleep too, could be!) Hit Parade of the Week Man Be Good, Mr. Riesenmy. Stormy Weather, And Look at My Hair. Sweet Madness, Crap Shooting. Are You Spoken Of?, Mr. Mur- Phy. I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire, I Just Want to Smoke in Physics Lab. Sweet and Lovely, Mr. Howell and Irene. Can’t Help Lovin’ That Girl, Mr. Carr. And so I am wracking by stead ily weakening brain and prepare to sign off. As I leave you I throw you this short witticism on Squad ron IV’s men: If most of them were twice the men they are they still couldn’t be half the men they think they are. While you’re figur ing that one out. I’ll conspicuous ly slink out. See yal —KYLE FIELD— (Continued From Page 3) fensive club the Aggies played early in the season. Arkansas came through with its first conference win in two years by taking the S.M.U. Mustangs 14-12. The Porkers were outplayed but managed to come out on the top side of the score. The Texas Tech Red Raiders put up a stiff resistance but were beaten by an N.T-A.C. squad that regained most of its team since its loss to Ran dolph Field. The score: N.T.A.C. 34-Texas Tech 14. Both the Longhorns and the Ag gies will not play this week, but that does not mean they will be taking it easy. On the contrary, the hardest days of training for both teams lie ahead. The Cadets have by far the most work to do, for their playing must be close to perfect if they are to win next week. There is no doubt that the Aggies will be trying to achieve just that. At present there are no bad casualties on either team, and both coaches have hopes of keep ing the boys in top condition for the melee. We should <say more, but we won’t, about Vic Emanuel’s little —DISTRACTIONS— (Continued From Page 2) Czechoslovakian patriots near the town of Lidice. The taking of the hostages, the machine-gunning of all the men in the village, and the separation of mothers from their children by the truckload, the de struction of the community by the torch and artillery are all shown. At the close, shadowy ghosts of the murdered men march in front of the camera reciting verses from Edna St- Vincent Millay’s poem, “The Murder of Lidice.” This picture should please audiences who like horror films. John Car- radine, as Heydrich, and Edgar Kennedy, as a burly recluse who lives in a cave, are the standout characterizations. Also in the pic ture are Patricia Morrison and Alan Curtis. The Lowdown: It’s gruesome, story about Coach Norton’s chal lenge which appeared in Monday morning’s Houston Post. Mr. Emanuel may have a number of followers among Post readers, but we seriously doubt that he rates very highly with College Station readers, which fact probably does not bother Mr. Emanuel very much.
