The Big Bands Can Come Back Ever since the Navy band was reassigned and removed from Keflavik, the combos have had full reign as far as "live" music is concerned. Here now is a chance for all those who don't play elec- tric guitars to show their talents on saxophone, trumpet and trom- bone. Swing Era Bands No one can dispute the fantastic popularity of the great bands of the "Swing Era," those of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw, just to name a few. Would you like to be a part of bringing this type of exciting music to Iceland? Easy to Learn The music isn't difficult enough to scare anybody off, and the kicks of playing side by side with twelve other men is an experience any musician values greatly. Two hundred big-band arrangements are here, arranged just as the great names of the past twenty- five years played them. All they need are twelve brass and reed men to bring them to life. Twelve Musicians Wanted If you'd like to have a lot of fun in your spare time, and perhaps receive more than just applause for your efforts, call Ensign Bren- neman at Armed Forces Radio- Television, 4168. Help bring back the bands. Keflavik Births Sonya Lann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George E. Whitmer, was born Oct. 5.

Zimmerman, radar officer of the 57th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, has designed and devel- oped a training device to help his men in their work. Built like a game in a penny arcade, the training aid is a glass enclosed board with a map of Iceland drawn on it. In the Northeast corner of Iceland, there is a "Bear" with NO, IT'S THIS ONE—First Lieute- nant Jon C. Zimmerman, radar of- ficer for the 57th FIS, offers a dif- ferent view than TSgt. Milton Wright, radar technician in the Maintenance Department of the 57th FIS. They are giving dif- ferent views on questions which are on the training device which Lieutenant Zimmerman designed and built for the men in his department. a series of arrows leading to it. A box with 35 multiple choice questions pertaining to mainten- ance work sits in the Southwest corner of the map. The idea is to answer 16 questions without a mistake and the arrows which lead to the "Bear" cover it and the game is won. Lieutenant Zimmerman worked for two months on his brainstorm before completing it in January of 1965. With the help of volunte- ers from the Maintenance Division and the use of scrap parts, the project was a huge success. Lieutenant Zimmerman is from Waukegan, 111. and attended col- lege at the Institute of Technology in Chicago where he obtained a de- gree in Electrical Engineering. He joined the Air Force in June of 1962 and has been the radar officer at the 57th since he ar- rived at Keflavik in August of 1964. Lieutenant Zimmerman is opti- mistic about his invention and says it helps the men's interest in their work and improves their general knowledge of mainten- ance. The training aid can be used for all types of work and can make learning fun. 8 500 Housing Units To be Built in FY 66 A total of 8,500 military family housing units are scheduled for construction following the passage of the Military Construction Ap- propriation Act for FY 66 by Con- gress. Priority on the new housing was given to projects intended to improve the morale and welfare of military families which are in- voluntarily separated, living in substandard housing, or paying excessive rents. The Navy will get the bulk of the new housing, with 3,430 units. The Air Force will get 3,390 new units and the Army is to receive 1,680. The housing will cost approxim- ately $160,000,000.
