Air Corps Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Florida Jan. 23, 1942


Acting First Sergeant Forrest L. Boyl-
ston, Signal Corps, received more than
his rightful share of good news this
week. In fact, it is seldom that any
soldier gets as much exciting and wel-
come news in a single day as came to
Sgt. Boylston last Monday.

In Monday morning's mail the Sergeant
received an order to appear before an
examining board at Maxwell Field for
Officer Candidate School and later that
day he was informed that he had been
* promoted from corporal to sergeant.

Rfcurif s Arrive *

More than 300 recruits have arrived at
Tyndall Field and have already begun an
intensive three-week period of training.
The men were sent to this station from
various posts in the southeast, but the
majority came from Camp Beauregard, La.

All have been assigned to squadrons
and after the training period will be
turned over to their respective squad-
rons. Detachment Commander is Capt.
John M. Wilkins with Lts. J.E. Adkins,
Joseph R. Brantley and Samuel W. Bright

Playing an important role in rec-
ruit training are a large number of non-
commissioned officers.

As a result of President Roosevelt's
announcement in his message to Congress
calling for a greatly expanded defense
program and the production of 185,000
planes by 1943, the War Department has
drastically revised Aviation Cadet re-
The most important changes were those
setting age limits at 18 and 26, and the
dropping of college credit requirements.
Formerly, candidates had to be 20 years
old and had to have two years of college
in an accredited institution, or else
pass a stringent test.
Under the new requirements, all appli-
cants for aircrew training will take a
uniform, simplified test which is design-
ed more to determine the applicant's
ability to absorb the course of instruct-
ion than it is to measure his formal ed-
ucation. The new test is of the type in
which the applicant chooses the correct
answer from five possible answers to each
question. Passing mark is 70.
Another important and recent modifi-
cation is that which permits the nearest
Cadet Examining Board to give both phys-
ical and educational tests and to grant
immediate appointment as aviation cadet.
Under old requirements the appointment
had to come from Washington.
The successful candidate will receive
approximately seven and a half months of
flight training; $75 per month plus $1.00
per day for subsistence; lodging, neces-
sary clothing, equipment; medical care;
and a $10,000 life insurance policy dur-
ing the training period. Upon graduation
the cadet receives a clothing allowance
of $150 cash.

"For the Lord hath driven out from bef-
ore you great nations and strong; no man
hath been able to stand before you unto
this day.. One man of you shall chase a
thousand; for the Lord your God He it is
that fighteth for you, as He hath promis-
ed you."
Men of the Air Corps--what a promise!
What assurance we have of victory! Why
are we granted such assurance? It is be-
cause we are fighting for freedom of spe-
ech, of press, and most of all, freedom
of religion. Our enemies now are so ruth-
less that Christians are now being put to
death if they attempt to meet together
for Worship; and to possess a Bible is
still certain death in those countries.
How many of you are now taking advan-
tage of the great privilege to assemble
yourselves for Worship?
In this connection all members of the
Post are invited to attend services each
Sunday at 9:30 AM in building 310 (engi-
neer's marker 38 c/4, near steel water
tank at south end of field) regardless of
your faith or denomination. Come! Let's
surprise the Chaplain next Sunday. After
all if our liberty and freedom of relig-
ion is worth fighting for, it is worth
enjoying by taking a part in it.
After all a man's morale is just as
high or low as his spiritual condition.
Regardless of other entertainment, good
food, etc., there are hours of unfilled
time, and that is when his morale is
either high or low and it is judged by
his inner soul. If you do not have
the Peace which passeth all understanding
begin going to Church next Sunday.

Your TYNDALL TARGET goes on the air
over Station WDLP, Panama City, every
Friday night from 6:15 to 6:30. Tune
in for news about the men stationed at
Tyndall Field and for the soldier's fav-
orite popular songs as played by the
nation's leading dance orchestras. Send
your requests to TYNDALL TARGET, care of
Station WDLP by Thursday of each week.


Most of you, no doubt, are aware that a
Red Cross, Field Director has been assig-
ned to your station. A lot of you are
probably saying, so what, or what does
that mean to me personally? For your in-
formation, the American Red Cross conduc-
ts a program of Home Service for the able
bodied and hospital and social service
for patients. This service by the Red
Cross is based upon three facts. First,
that morale underlies all aspects of mil-
itary life. Second, that anxiety, worry,
and fear are productive of poor morale.
Third, that anxiety, worry, and fear rj
tard the recovery of the sick and injurW
The military man is not different
emotionally from his civilian broth-
In order that you may be more fully in-
formed regarding the various activities
of the Red Cross, we list herewith a few
of the many services rendered:
a. To arrange for furnishing relief in
distress among families of service men.
b. To assist in locating families of
service men.
c. To arrange helpful advice on Welfare
matters for families of service men.
d. To assist in securing employment for
members of service men's families.
e. To locate men in the service for i(
quiring families.
f. To make loans to service men to re-
turn home on account of distress, sick-
ness, or death in the immediate family
when a man or his family is without
sufficient funds.
g. To assist in solving business problems
of service men and their families.
h. To arrange helpful advice to discharg-
ed disabled service men returning home
and to assist them in reestablishing
themselves in civilian life.
i. To investigate home conditions at the
request of Commanding Officers for
confidential information needed in
considering questions of discharge and
Please feel free to call on your Red
Cross for any of the above services.

In spite of the fact that Spring is not
here yet, it seems that a young man's fan-
cy has already turned to thoughts of love.
That young man is Cpl. Frank T. High.
It is a known fact that Corp. High made
a romantic proposal one night not long
ago, so we are all wishing him the best
of luck and are crossing fingers that he
was not rejected. However, in all prob-
ability, we'll soon be hearing the fam-
iliar strains of "Here Comes the Bride."
St was taken for granted that "Smil-
g Jack" Sikes and Will Barrios were the
best of friends but evidently the tide has
turned. Sikes was seen uptown Tuesday
night, sporting Will's girl on his arm.
Give us an explanation, Jack. Did you fel-
lows have harsh words?
Looks as though Reginald "Flunkie" Mc-
Kaig will be in the market for a new girl
friend soon. Everyone in the Squadron is
writing to "Flunkie's" girl except Flunk-
ie himself.
Three new men were assigned last week,
having been sent to this station from Jef-
ferson Barracks. Arnold Milgaten was an
administrative clerk at JB, Tony Janucevic
an amateur instructor in photography,
Daniel Levinson back in the good old
civilian days worked with Woody Herman's
top-notch band. He also has a "Tony Pas-
tor" set of vocal cords.
Pvt. Walter F. Parker, Jr., has rejoin-
ed the squadron after having successfully
completed a specialized course at the Sp-
erry Co. in New York. - -W. B.


A rumor in last week's TARGET brought
forth the truth from Pvt. Lonnie C. Brew-
er. He announces that Mrs. Brewer will
join him soon.
Pvts. Basham, Allen, Kannaly, and Mil-
ler joined the squadron this week after
graduating from the AM course at Chanute.
Ne nominate Lt. Lynn, squadron adjutant,
as the officer with the snappiest salute.

Sgt. Gossett, of GOSSETT'S GOSSIP fame,
made a whirlwind tour of Tyndall Field
this week, trying to make amends for some
digs in his column last week. Sweatin'
Staff Sergeant?
Who is the private still sweating out
learning his General Orders so he can get
a pass?
The bulging athletes of the squadron
can now demonstrate their abilities on
the new volleyball court and horseshoe
boxes constructed this week, while the
more genial and cultured members of the
organization, i. e., Goldberger, Reitman,
Diamond and Hetherington, stick to their
nightly game of bridge in the Day Room.
We welcome our new recruits from Camp
Blanding and we are confident that they
will all make good soldiers. Sgt. Ver-
rett is in charge of their training.-T.W.


"Something New Has Been Added"----The
343rd has a new commander, Capt. Gardner.
and a new adjutant, Lt. Corr. We want to
welcome the new officers and want them to
know that we are with them 100 per cent.
Congratulations to the newly appointed
sergeants: John Carder, Robert Kelly,
We also want to welcome S/Sgt. Ernest
W. Stone to our fold. Glad to have you
with us.
Haps and Mishaps: New basketball cap-
tain is that Florida flash, Gerald (Dead-
Shot) Merritt...We want to send our deep-
est regrets to the "400" of Boston. Sor-
ry that Pvt. Eberly is not with them and
that they have to contend with Vanderbilt,
Morgentheau and a few others.
Congrats: Sgts. Jenkins and Hubbard.
$64 Questions:
Why does Pfc. (Available) Jones long
for Mississippi?
Why is Pvt. Merritt so slow? Is it beer
on the knee?
Why do Sergeants get bald sooner than
other folks?
Why does Pfc. Boyes buy so much shoe
polish? J. C.


Congrats to Sgt. Lonnie C. Gainey, who
made Staff Sergeant January 1st, and to
R.Wi. Austin, J.H. Wannin, J.D. Hash, 'N.i.
Culver and G.A.R. Willstrop, who now sup-
port the added weight of a third stripe.
Pvts. First Class who made Corporal the
first of the year were A.C. Barker, C.D.
Co.inr7, W.H. East, W.R. Greenwood, B. D.
Owen, C.V. Miller, and W. L. Regan.
Unconfirmed rumor has it that 1st Sgt.
Littel is trying to get White's Cafe (or,
at least, the employees of the same) mov-
ed into the Day Room. We're sure that
such a move would eliminate passes to
Panama City.
Why such frequent letters to the Univ-
ersity, C.D.C.? Wacky over a slaphappy
lassie from Tallahassee? More power to
you, Chuck. She's a very charming lass.
Wonder why a certain Hollywood Corporal
has developed such a strong set of lungs?
'e can see the stripes, "Red."
Then there was the soldier who was of-
fered a commission but his mother insist-
ed he stay on a straight salary.
Vhat happened to the squadron's promis-
ing basketball team? Let's get it going,
fellows, and maybe the "Rugged 344th"
will live up to its name. ---A.C.


Corp. Williams recently returned from
the Sperry Gyroscope Plant in New York.
Watch him, boys, he puts that power tur-
rot in "Gallopin' Dominoes" every pay day.
Do you fellows remember Uncle Sam's
gift to the 348th? He just won't stay put.
Welcome back to the outfit, McCormick.
Things we'd like to see and hear about:
"Chester" walking down the street with his
best girl friend......1st Sgt. "Cowboy"
Skelton telling us about his hitch in the
Phillipines and that rugged "two gun"
guard duty there...T/Sgt. Houston getting
straight with all those girl friends.
Commendation letters for Dec. went to
Sgt. Murphy, Corp. Nogulich & Pfc. Gaddis.

The stripe-happy boys of the Fighting
69th found themselves snowed under last
week when a number of recruits joined the
squadron and started shooting questions
at the recently-appointed NCO's.....even
Sgt. Price of the personnel Section felt
the effects of the boom.
For the information of the inquisitive
fellows from other squadrons: The new fe-
nce in front of our barracks (and we're
proud of it) is to prevent the new
"John's" from going over the hill.


Many of the boys are finishing school
and are coming to this organization for
the first time. The last was Pvt. Green-
"Jar the concrete" and "Hit the deck"
are some of the encouraging calls for all
to roll out.


Pvt. Hancock had an accident last week
and we hope he recovers in a hurry.
Who is "Peanuts?"
Pvt. MacLaren seems to take his new du-
ties as Day Room orderly quite seriously.
The entertainment sponsored by the Bap-
tist Church is appreciated by all of us.
At least 25 from this outfit attended the
little party following the Sunday night
And who is the proud "Papa?"---H.B.


S/Sgt Stewart, better known to the boys
of the 446th as "Uncle Stewart," has our
appreciation for his excellent work as
A & R Director. Under his supervision a
volleyball court has been set up behind
the barracks, and the fellows are finding
a great deal of fun in playing and devel-
oping teamwork.
Wives of S/Sgts. Lax and Pope recently
were assigned and joined while the "Bet-
ter Halves" of Corp. Rowley and Pvt. Mee-
han are reported DS en route.
Pvt. Gruza, who has been ill in the Pa-
nama City Hospital, is reported improving.
SRecently issued gas masks are being
ld in readiness for the next gas attack
from the paper mill. ---D.B.


Members of this outfit have been won-
dering if perhaps they haven't establish-
ed a record of some kind. In just two
S short weeks four soldiers have held down
the job of "top-kick." Can any squadron
beat that one?
We are fortunate in having two officers
like Capt. Henry H. Hunter and Lt. Ken-
neth P. Miller. Capt. Hunter has been
with us but three weeks but already he
has proved himself to be a swell Command-
ing Officer and a fine leader.
Because the squadron has had so few men
available for details in the past, we
have had little time for organized sports,
but under the new training program we ex-

pect to offer more than enough competition
in the various sports.
We would like to take this opportunity
to commend Major W.F. Shipman on the good
job he is doing in providing entertain-
ment for large number of men. How about
another of those dances, Major? The last
one was a big success.
Congratulations to all the men who were
promoted the first of the year. To list
them would take a page of TYNDALL TARGET,
but we'll add nice going, men. --L.T.


Our Finance Department at Tyndall Field
was activated January 6th. Lt. Emory M.
Shofner, formerly stationed at Maxwell Fi-
eld, Ala., was appointed Finance Officer
and Detachment Commander.
T/Sgt. Luther R. Underwood, Pfc. Edward
M. Morgan and Pfc. Carl G. Brandt report-
ed for duty January 2nd, joining Pfc.
John E. Farr, who had come here from Fin-
ance School at Holabird, Md., early in Dec.
On January 7th, the following ratings
were announced: Pfc. Morgan was rerated
specialist first class, Pfc. Farr was ap-
pointed specialist first class also, and
Pfc. Brandt was rated specialist second
Six new men joined us on the 6th from
Fort Bragg, N.C.: Pvts. Anderson, Hanak,.
Beegle, Blazak, Clooney and Costigan.
And last, but not least, the Finance
Detachment of Tyndall Field has adopted
the slogan of "Keep 'Em Paid." --C.B.


The men of the 447th give three rousing
cheers of welcome to their new CO, 1st Lt.
Samuel E. Williams. In the short time he
has been in command he has gained the re-
spect and cooperation from all of us. And
another hearty welcome to 1st Lt. Joseph
H. Pittenger, who joined us again after
an absence of;a few weeks.
Orchids to Pvts. Harry V. Howard and
Henry M. Gooden, who have left to take up

training for Flying Cadet. Lots of luck,
fellows. We'll all work together to "Keep
'Em Flying."
It looks as though our supply sergeant
has acquired a new theme song: "Daddy."
We extend our sympathies to the new re-
cruits of Tyndall Field,who are receiving
their training under Sgt. Mills and Corp.
Mattocks. Lucky boys, you!! When better
soldiers are made, Mills will make 'em.
From KP to Corporal in one hour. Con-
gratulations, Corp. Keith. We also wish
to compliment Corps. Rabick and Edwards
for acquiring that "double stripe."
An unsolved mystery is where Pfc. Bend-
er and Hirsch spend their evenings.
By the way, what happened to Pvts. Laf-
fer, Stinky, and Lampros Monday morning?
Sweat it out, fellows.
F-L-A-S-H....For the 48th straight week
the "booby" prize was awarded Pvt. Wein-
The 447th again claims top honors in
winning the basketball game with 446th.
Final score: 21-16. Nice going.---J.L.


I understand Sgt. Boylston went before
a Board of Officers Monday. Did you see
him when he returned? We believe he will
survive. He is hoping to attend Officer
Candidate School at Fort Monmouth, N. J.
If he passes the course we'll call him Se-
cond Lieut. Boylston." And after he's
gone perhaps the First Sergeant will be
able to have quiet after "Lights Out."
When it comes to moving, you can't beat
the Signal Corps, at least, we've had e-
nough experience after packing up at
least once a week for the past month.
Caution-all drivers! "Slim" is driving
a truck for us now. Corp. Stansberry says
he does pretty good--BUT.
And, by the way, you'd better be good
to the Signal Corps boys. We're operat-
ing the switchboard for all Tyndall Field
calls. And be careful what you say.
Sometimes we can't help but listen to you
whispering "sweet nothings."---D.P.


Banker Herb Ruess, who was formerly
with the Chase National Bank in N. Y.
City, is in a quandary over the meaning
of the letters "S-M-R-L-H" which he no-
ticed on some of the letters the boys re-
It seems that Pvt. M. D. Vernell has
been catching "K P" consistently for the
past month. 'Tis rumored that it is due
to sun-spots....."stew bad."
Why Dept: Why does Pvt. Fulton shi*
his shoes like mad, slick down his hair
and dress, oh so carefully? Does he
have a heart-beat at the field?
Don't ever ask Pvt. William J. Sousa
to go over to the PX for a coke. Rumor
has it that after a few hours of waiting
a couple of the boys sent out a St. Ber-
nard with a flask and a map of the field.
Yes Sir, we surely do have the "bar"
represented here in the QMC. Pvt. Sam
Schenker was an attorney at Annapolis,
Md., before entering the service and is
a graduate from the Univ. of Maryland,
Class of 1941.
Things we'd love to see: Tyndall Field
complete with paved roads.....Bill McNe|
without his many bottles of tonics, etW
A bus line right to our company street...
The day when we're issued khaki shorts-
for summer wear and those cute kneelength
stockings. Woopl!... No hoops to roll,
my deah?
Scoop: Berkey, the QM Det. Cook, de-
cided to take a dip in the briny deep
during the wee, small hours the other
morning. Far be it from us to tattle,
as you may know, but Berkey's "keel" was
scraped and scratched as he hurriedly
tried to climb up one of those pilings,
forgetting barnacles in his mad rush to
get out of the icy water.
And then there's the one about Pvt.
Engles, who hails from Indiana, whenhe
took a walk down by the Gulf. Forgett-
ing that "Time and tide wait for no man,"
he strayed out to the end of the pier, on-
ly to be marooned. 'Nuff said.---R.G.

Two negro girls were discussing
war on the streets of Homer, Ga.,
the other day. One girl said,
"You know, with dis heah wah on,
I think we ought to have some
air raid shelters built. One of
des days we guine be bombed into
maternity." The other negro re-
plied, "Dat's right, and if day

A Twist of the rist I IMOVIES for the rel

Man's best friend may still be his dog
but you can bet that the radio isn't far
behind. Rover's antics may be funny, but
you'd look awfully silly laughing at the
last joke he told you. Perhaps that's why
the radio will never replace the canine
pet in man's affections, either that,or
because dog food is still cheaper than
radio tubes.
Kidding aside, though, since radio with-
out a doubt has become one of the greatest
mediums of education and entertainment in
the country, we owe it to ourselves to get
the most out of it. So, keeping in mind
that moment in the soldier's daily life
when he stretches himself out on the bunk
and gives his "Marconi" a twist of the
wrist, we want this column to aid him in
determining which way to turn the dial.
Here are some tips, day by day:
SUNDAY Almost any program is worth
listening to, and among the better ones is
the Family Hour (4:00 PM CBS). Music, pop-
ular and classic, by accomplished artists
and featuring Gladys Swarthout.
MONDAY Relax to 15 minutes of varied
music by Fred Waring's crew (6:00 PM NBC).
They always satisfy.
TUESDAY You have two aces here: the
Treasury Hour (7:00 PM NBC Blue) and one
of radio's greatest comedians, Bob Hope
(9:00 PM NBC Red).
WEDNESDAY Top combination of mystery
and comedy is the Thin Man series (7:00
PM NBC Red). The Quiz Kids hold forth at
the same time over NBC Blue. Of course
Fred Allen (8:00 PM CBS) and Eddie Cantor
(8:00 PM NBC Red) make it tough in decid-
ing whether you want to laugh with gas or
