hot pilots or do we feel an empty
place in our stomachs? Some don’t

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

everyone on last Saturday morn

Did you notice that his average
pulls of the sailcloth dropped con
siderably? And just as I was go

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.

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

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

and play this game, it’s for the
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
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.

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.”

Eager Beavers take note: There
are only five more shopping days

to get.

To quell all rumors students are
asking about who is who, we print
an extract from a past daily bul

for the Squadron V members, the

that on Saturday morning the

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 man—and rested,
Then God made women,
Since then neither God nor man

Following are a few quips taken
out of Log Magazine for Naviga
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

duties in the air, other than navi
gation duties, for instance as an
observer, gunner, photographer,
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.

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.”

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.

won’t, about Vic Emanuel’s little

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

who like horror films. John Car-
