WE INTEND ^ULL CDVERAGE J?N EACH ISSUE Volume XI, Number 3 Headquarters, Air Forces Iceland, Keflavik Airport, Iceland—A MATS Unit Saturday, January 21, 1961 USO Show To Stage 2 Comedies The USO show "Rhythm Be- vels", originally scheduled to play here on Jan. 17 and 18, will play at Rockville on Jan. 24 and at the Viking Service club on Jan. 25. The Rockville show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and the Viking per- formance will begin at 8 p.m. The Rhythm Revels troupe will leave on the morning of the 26th for Rhein Main to perform on the Continent. They will be on an 11-week- tour of bases and the Mediter- ranean area for five more weeks of performances. The fast-paced music and com- edy revue features Ventriloquist Hank Sieman, who was featured on an Eddie Cantor tour as the only man in the world who can carry on four conversations at once. Billboard had this to say about him: "Hank Sieman and wooden-headed stooge Archie present some difficult ventrilo- quism tricks. Best feat is a four- way conversation with the help of two members of the audience." Hank's wife Dorothy, although definitely not wooden-headed, serves as a foil for his comedy talents. Musical background for the show is provided by Gene Rush, piano; Danny Mastri, string bass and William Price, drums. Maryetta Evans heads the show's dance department and (Continued on Page U.) Drive to Begin Colonel Myron F. Barlow, Chairman of the AFI Fund Raising Committee, announced this week that plans have been made to participate in the forthcoming National Health Agencies Campaign. The drive will be conducted here between Jan. 31 and Feb. 16. Details will appear in the next issr.e of the Falcon. Project Money Tree Gets Underway Soon One of the oldest problems in the military—money and equipment waste—has been tapped by the MATS commander as "high priority" for 1961. At Keflavik Airport, Don Romig of the Logistic Plans section of the Air Forces Iceland (AFI) Deputy ¦ ¦- - ^Commander for Support office, is^ KEFLAVIK'S MR. 1961—It wasn't until 1:45 a.m. that Keflavik Air- port introduced its first baby of the new year. Mr. 1861 was 19'/2 inches long and weighed in at 5 lbs., 14'/2 oz. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert M. Griffin will name him Robert Maurice Griffin Jr. But he'll respond more often to "Bobby" according to his mother. Bobby is the Griffin's second child, but the first surviving. Griffin Senior, says Mr. 1961's mother, is "crazy" about 'Mr. 1961', born Jan. 16. project chairman for "Project Money Tree." This week an endorsement to a letter from Lt. Gen. Joe W. Kelly, commander of MATS, was distributed to the AFI subordin- ate units. General Kelly in his letter to the field, in conjunction with an Air Force-wide effort, directed that a continuing program be in- stituted by all commanders and Materiel officers to monitor and improve management of money and materiel by all military and civilian personnel assigned to MATS. The General emphasized that each individual airman, officer and civilian in every organization is obligated to practice supply discipline. When negligence is found in this area—which is one object of "Project Money Tree"— the individual responsible should be made to pay for the resulting loss straight from his own pocket. This is not a threat, he added, but an accepted means of stres- sing professional responsibility and sound management; and the lack of use of this technique in the past has undoubtedly con- tributed to deterioration in sup- ply discipline. Specific areas to be explored in the program will include: hoard- ing and misuse of government property; accuracy of reports and source data; property records that account for each item pos- sessed; proper authorization for an individual's obtaining equip- ment; measures against theft, and repair of damaged property to usable condition. "We must stop buying what we don't really need and repair more of what we do need," Gen. Kelly said. A COMMUNITY RELATION FIRST—The Keflavik International Airport Airman and Seaman of the Month this week enjoyed a day on Reykjavik, courtesy of restaurant owner, Brynjolfur Brynjolfsson. He entertained the winners at his restaurant and afterward, Gisli Gudmundsson, right foreground at table, conducted a tour of Reykjavik's historic spots. After the tour, the "best" of Keflavik Airport enjoyed a free-time shopping period before returning to the base. (See story Page 4.)
