Tuesday Sheppard Field news Over this writer had occasion to Fly to los Angeles a few Days Back. Some observations might be of interest to Sheppard Field personnel. Amarillo is a soldiers Paradise. M till no army Camp of size nearby the City is hospitality personified As far As members of the armed f orces Are concerned. I in o soldiers of artillery just Hack from duty in Iceland said they had been in Amarillo two weeks enjoying the dinners dances and so Forth which the civilians bestowed upon them. I hey just could t bring it upon themselves to depart for their respective Homes and enjoy their thirty Day furloughs. Of course they were staff sergeants which May explain it All. Sis if the West coast is Well aware that a War is in Progress. Any doubt in a visitors mind is instantly dispelled at Nightfall when a stray plane overhead Calls Forth the instant illumination of half a Hundred antiaircraft lights. Once a Friendly plane is identified by its markings the lights Are switched off again but it is an impressive sight. Los Angeles likewise bristles with anti aircraft guns which Are placed in All strategic positions. The citizens themselves go about their daily tasks with aplomb but they have a distaste for the japs which is much stronger than that found in More Remote localities. There is very Little night life and few soldiers Are found in town most of them being restricted to their various Camps. Latest Story going the rounds which the angeleno Tell with relish is that which appeared recently in a nationally distributed Magazine about the wire some of Macarthur men were supposed to have sent to the general heading the ninth corps area after the Jap submarine shelled the California Oil Center of Goleta a few weeks Back. The wire read a sorry to hear of your disaster. If you can hold out for thirty Days Well Send help no a % a Sheppard Field is As Well known on the West coast As it is Here in Texas. W Inch is explained perhaps by the fact that so Many Fellows from that area have been sent Here. The elevator operator for instance in one l. Building said when Sheppard Field was mentioned that he had a Nephew in the to 1th technical school Squadron. Passengers on commercial planes these Days Are very indicative by the Way of the War the country is waging. On the return trip there were two ferry pilots on Board a colonel of air corps an infantry Captain and two Young in corps second lieutenants on their Way to their first assignments. In a much ado the last week about the new curfew which is scheduled to go into effect soon in the 8th corps area. When it becomes Law All soldiers will have to be off the streets at 11 30 p. Rn., which Means in essence that have to be Back at Sheppard Field if that a their base. However the measure is not effective yet so there a still a few Days of Grace. Biggest sweating out Job in a Long time was that performed by the air corps officer candidate school applicants who took the competitive examination the other Day. In View of the fact that Only Twenty will be elected the Strain was and is telling on these hundreds who took the exam. Latest unfounded Story was to the effect that Jeffery Lynn the Hollywood actor was on the Field. An exhaustive Cheek by first endorsement has proved the Rumor to be unfounded.

Biggest thing on the horizon of the radio division of Public relations is the new hour radio show which is to he started soon.
