Vol. I No. 4 Air Corps Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Florida February 6, 1942


The new grading and promotion system
* recently announced by the War Depart-
ment will be put into effect immedi-
ately at Tyndall Field, it was announ-
ced here Thursday.
The main feature of the new system
is the elimination of all specialist
ratings and the substitution of non-
commissioned officer and technician
ratings. Also, the number of grades
allotted to each squadron has been
considerably increased.
None of the squadrons will be allot-
ted technician ratings, for these have
been restricted to the various arms of
the Service on duty with the Air Corps,
which include the Signal Corps, Quart-
ermaster Corps, Ordnance, Chemical
SWarfare, Medical Corps and Finance.
All promotions in the school, materi-
el, air base and headquarters squad-
rons will be in the non-commissioned
officer grades.
S Another angle of the new system is
that a soldier may now be reduced any
I number of grades that may be thought
desirable, without reducing him to
private. Heretofore, '" a man was
reduced at all, he had to be reduced
to the grade of private. Too, a man
may skip any number of grades if his
work and qualifications are thought to
merit such.
Efficiency, regardless of length of
service, will be the main consider-
ation in all future promotions. In
the past, seniority carried more wei-
ght than actual qualifications. This
policy has now been completely revers-
ed under the system.

The fact that a man now holds a spe-
cialist rating does not necessarily
mean that he will receive a non-com-
missioned officer rating. However, no
well qualified and competent special-
ist need have any fear of suffering a
reduction in pay.
Those organizations on duty here
with the Air Corps have had their num-
ber of NCO grades reduced approximate-
ly one third, but the new technician
grades allotted them compensate for
the loss. In order for a man to receive
the rating of technician, he must pass
an examination comparable to the A. M.


Miss Lavonne Lindquiste arrived here
Wednesday to take over her new job as
permanent dietitian for Tyndall's mess
The dietetic expert comes from lonia,
Michigan, where until recently she was
a nutritionist for the Farm Security
Administration. A graduate of Iowa
State College at Ames, Iowa, she took
her degree in home economics and did
extensive work in nutrition. After
graduation, she served her dietetic
interneship at the University of Min-
nes; Hospitals.
At Tyndall Field, Miss Lindquiste
will a- that the soldiers are served
well balanced meals and that the food
is properly prepared and well season-

It wuz a mity rough day on e Yard-
birds today. Got stuck last night on
bedcheck--got restricted. Reckon it
wuz woth it; a civilian twisted my
arm and made me drink his whisky for
him; the bartender kept giving me dir-
ty looks, too, and I didn't figger it
ud be neyborly to runn off and leave
This morning the ole man reamed me
ot for not getting up for the c. q.;
shoes wuznt shined neether.
Went on down to chow. Got reccom-
mended for K. P. by the mess sgt. i
tried to hook a extry botle of milk.
He's eying the same little hash sl-
inger down to the oystre bar as me.
that's how come. Went on down the
chow line and got me some S. 0. S.
(they calls it creamed beef on toast
on the menu). they made me go down on
the runaways and aprons for a gasmast
drill. Ever time the looey got out of
step he blamed me***insurt at bottom.
Made me police the area this afternoon.
Had a whale of a headache frum last
nite, & tole the sgt. I wouldn't be
much good for the job, we had a hart
to hart talk and I grabbed onto that
ole rake like it wuz a fore bit piece.
ever time i lent over, the horizon
line on my right raised up a cuple of
notches--unaccounted for like.
Saw my good buddy at chow. He's
happy. Restricted to. Started out
liquidizing with him yesterday; left
him at the shamrock with a gorjus bl-
onde. Good body but a bad paint job.
Went on back ot the barracks and
locked up with the supply sgt. on ac-
count of the statement of charges i

signed for my blse. it wuz found at
the Bloody Bucket, which is off limits.
He done made a date for me with the

happy on account of i'll get off a

frum them fast walking plow mules, but
iffen the recrutin man had a tole me

When they axed me iffen i knew the
manuel of arms i tole em sure i knowed
how to salute, and i got another ream-
ing. they got maddern that when i
wanted to show them my cross body draw

said remember Pearl Harbor. Must be
a sister to Minnie. i never met the
whole family so i just sent Minnie a
i'd better close now cause i reckon
i'd beterr be going.--a yardbird.

It would surely be a big help to the
soldiers' pocketbooks, if and when the
law is passed allowing soldiers free
postage on out-going mail. There is
nothing definite about it yet, so we
don't know whether or not it's just
another rumor.
The states receiving the most outgo-
ing mail from Tyndall Field are North
Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida, South
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Texas, and
Tennessee, in that order.
Your correspondent would like to
start a rumor column, so if anyone has
heard any worthwhile rumors, shoot 'em
to us by your mail orderly.

Sgt. Gossett was in high spirits at

One of them may be a millionaire. An-
other one of the boys joined hands in

Hafely?....Pvt. Lott just can't remem-

More "news" next week.--A. R. E.


New NCO's of the squadron are: Pfc.
Weber, Pfc. Sanderson, Pfc. Dodd and
Pvt. Morris. They all seem mighty
happy to be sporting their new corpor-
al stripes.
The basketball team is shaping into
a swell quintet. S/Sgt. O'Neil is the

coach and is doing a good job, since
he's only a "playboy" himself.
New squadron adjutant is 2nd Lt. An-
drew J. Russo. We're all glad to have
you with us, Lieutenant.
We're known as the "Fighting 69th"
and we've assumed our new duties as a
combat squadron with a lot of enthusi-
asm.--J. F. B.


Well, the squadron is gaining all
the time. We are right at the back of
the mess hall now and are expecting to
push right in before long (on K. P.).
We like our new "home" a lot and hope
to improve the grounds in front soon.
This early-morning rising is surely
getting most of our men, especially
our mailman, Copenhauer. He sleeps
even while standing roll call. And we
wonder why he's so sleepy.
What's this about Sgt. Carder and a
certain girl from Blountstown, Fla.?
We're sorry to have lost some of our
men, but our loss is the 446th's gain.
Goodluck, fellows, in the new squad-
Pvt. Dearing will have someone to
spar with now since Pvt. Baaba is
back. Look out, Baaba, Dearing has a
mighty hard right.
And what's this about Misaney, Bro-
ton and Tkachik coming in during the
wee hours of the night, singing at the
top of their voices?--J. F. B.


The boys are certainly glad to get
settled in their permanent barracks.
Moving so often got to be a boresome
T/Sgt. Burton and a number of the
other fellows have started working on
the line.
T/Sgt. Dawson, a new member of the
squadron, has taken over duties as
line chief. We bid you welcome, Sgt.


It wa well proved the other day
that Lt. arkstrom hasn't been spend-
ing the greater part of his time with
the boys for nil when he, with the
capable assistance of Sgt. Austin and
Corp. "Red" Hamilton, outmaneuvered
and took by surprise the boys of the
349th in miniature "war games" down on
the beach.
Twenty men were transferred to the
447th. Sorry to see you leave us,
Why does Hitler sleep with his boots
on?...Because he smells "defeat"--AJC.


Pvt. Raydine Smith left on an emer-
gency furlough this week.
Who is it that Pvt. Chope is so in-
terested in? Not everyone is so for-
Corp. Allen is one of the first to
work on the line from this outfit as a
radio operator.
Pvt. Chope is in supply again after
having done similar work at Jefferson
Barracks, Missouri.
We want to welcome the recruits.
It seems that Pvt. J. W. Barnes now
enjoys thqpopularity of being Glamour
Boy No. One.
Pvt. Walthall really has something
on the rest of us, and that is beating
the C. Q. to his job by being up be-
fore the first whistle.
Corp. Propes and Pvt. Leimer are now
waiting on the rest of the boys in the
outfit--in the Post Exchange.--HHB.


Here's a good one for
you. Corp. Talley bou-
ght Sgt. Farley's din-
ner Wednesday. Talley,
that's good of you to
put your money into
Circulation like that.
1 It will help to "Keep
'Em Flying...For a 220-

man, and by that we mean pounds, to be
light on his feet, Mouton really takes
the cake. When he goes tip-toeing
through the tulips with a song on his
lips, he'd better be careful what he
promises young ladies. They say that
an elephant never forgets...Suratt has
recently added his name to the list of
men drawing separate rations. It is
wondered just what the "shack" pri-
vates will do without their specialist
pay from now on....The 350th now has
some airplanes, so, Corp. Geboy, show
us just how hard you can work and just
how much you know about the great fly-
ing machine......Some of the boys have
been going down town and practicing
up on their bowling. It would be a
great thing if the squadron had a
bowling team, don't you think?...In
all the trading of personnel this week
this outfit lost M/Sgt. Hathaway and
took on T/Sgt. Rhodes. Welcome to the
outfit, Sergeant.....The Squadron Com-
mander stood reveille Saturday morn-
ing....In coming to the field lately,
we've noticed a few cars running on
the rims. Wonder why? Maybe we all
had better start "sweating it out"-JDT


Everyone who went to Blountstown
last week for the President's Birthday
Ball had a swell time, and one fellow
really made a hit. He has gotten a
couple of letters already and she
tells him that "Golly, Daddy, I'm
nearly 16."
Who is the fellow who made Acting
Corporal last week, after having his
girl friend talk to the
First Sergeant in the
Cafeteria? "Larry," the
First Sergeant has as-
sured me that he is go-
ing to be sweet to you,
'cause the girl friend
told him to.
Corp. L., in a few
more days you're going


~c ~c

to get your bicycle
From the QM. They told
Sme this morning that
they have a new ship-
I ment of seats, built
especially for the
l "expansion."
Sgt. Houston, I hear
you have found an ex-
ceptional girl in Panama City. How
many does that make?
* Sam "Caught In The Draft" Landes,
lacked only Dorothy Lamour to emulate
Bob Hope the other morning at reveille.
The air raid precaution training has
had telling effect on at least one man
in the outfit. He must have mistaken
the Sergeant's voice for an air raid
siren and "hit the dirt" at reveille
the other day. Nice work, Thompson.
What are the First Sergeant and the
Lieutenant doing to make their voices
change while they're counting cadence
during the daily drills?--H. C. M.


What sergeant is keeping the boys in
* his room awake at night by talking in
his sleep? Barbara, whoever you are,
please do something, so the boys in
the room can get some rest.
Sgt. Smith claims it to be the real
thing this time. He was blessed with
S the arrival of his little heartbeat
this past week-end. We wonder if they
have set the date?
It appears to be a race against time
between Pvts. Meehan and Lassiter.
Pvt. Meehan says it's a pleasure to go
out with Pvt. Lassiter, as the members
of the fairer sex don't notice his
lack of hair when he and Lassiter are
together. We don't want to mention
names now, but we think that any per-
son who has been combing his hair with
a towel should think twice before he
passes any remarks.
Sgt. Stewart is going great with the
squadron basketball team. The boys
have been practicing in the high sch-

ool gym and are improv-
ing rapidly. Keep up
the good work, Sergeant.
Congratulations are in
order for S/Sgt. Pope
and Corp. Altheide for
their good work in tak-
ing the raw recruits and
making soldiers of them.
Lost and Found Dept: Found--one ho-
ley pair of socks in the latrine. Will
the pious soul who either lost or just
misplaced same please claim his prop-
erty in the squadron supply room.-MMK.


The men of this organization join
wholeheartedly it welcoming the fel-
lows recently trawgferred to the out-
fit. We hope your stay with the 447th
will be a pleasant and happy one.
Congratulations to Sgt. Mills in his
promotion to First Sergeant.
The 447th accepts the challenge of
the 448th to a basketball game at its
earliest convenience.
It has been sort of quiet around the
barracks lately, so an investigation
was ordered immediately. Result: It
was discovered that Sgt. Savko had
been sent over to take care of the re-
Extral It has been reported that
Pvt. O'Neil bought a clarinet and is
practicing daily. "Gabriel," blow
your horn!
Wanted: A violinist to play "Hearts
and Flowers" for a certain Pfc.
Flash! Pvt. Laffer was seen in the
woods, plucking the petals off a daisy.
Incidentally, fellows, he hasn't re-
ceived any mail from Brooklyn lately.
By the way, Pvts. Kamp and Laffer,
what happened to those Coca-Colas?
"Remember Kings Highway"--J. T. L.


Introducing the Chemical Warfare
Service: For the information of all

concerned, we are not stationed here
as an investigating committee for the
odors issuing forth from the local pa-
per mill. However, those gas masks do
come in handy.
We wish there would be more cooper-
ation among the CWS boys. Hammonds,
the elder, has Bay Harbor tied up,
Hammonds, the younger, having been on
MP duty for some time, has Panama City
well in hand. This leaves out the
rest of the boys.
Judging by the moving we've been do-
ing lately, we should be wearing QM
It's not that our beloved recruits
are homesick or are addicted to crying
jags; it's just a bit of tear gas they
encountered Wednesday afternoon.


It was learned the other day that
Pvt, Charles H. Vickers is going to
resign his member-ship in the V-8 Club.
We are inclined to believe this is
true. Ask Vickers about it.
We'd like to take this opportunity
to congratulate Corp. Ben Northrop on
his recent marriage. Best of luck and
happiness to you and the "Missus,"
Ben. When are we coming out for a duck
dinner? We'll bring the ducks.
Pvt. Donald F. Schultz has just re-
turned from New Orleans where he had
the usual tough time of explaining to
the home folks that he wasn't flying

Pfc. Arlick Young was the "perfect
host" to several of the fellows at

had a most enjoyable time and, to top
things off, "Frenchie" disclosed sev-
eral of his best card tricks.--W.L.B.

Review: The expectant looks
into the eyes of the boys
opening of the new USO is

mentioned is something terrific. You
should see our four beavers, oops! I
meant seamen, working frantically to
complete the mooring for their new
boat....Ah, yes, and the beer that
comes to the eyes of Tom Baldridgd
when a certain young tomato's name is
mentioned. It seems that once upon a
time "Tommie" was her mani1....Don't
look now but Clifford J. Crador, who
was once a very good commercial artist
is now a motor pool artist...Oceans of
respect to S/Sgt. Elmer C. Suter, who
has been doing such a swell job for
the QM Commissary for 15 years. Did
you see the expression of sheer joy on
the faces of the boys when they were
told that finally they'll get the jobs
they were trained to do? THEY DRIVE

transport who do all the cvoyUoprk:.
Let's tell "em that we've got .iem down
in our little red book. Stinkapat-
ions: The gentle wafted smellow bre-
eze from the paper mill.
Things I Never Knew Before: That
whiskey is good for snakebite--if it
is poured into the wound, instead of
the mouth...That the word "dump" means
temporary stocks of supplies, low sp-
irits, to let fall, deposit, a thud,
a whoozy beer joint. That Pvt. Gene
Hayden used to be a seaman on ships to
all points on the globe...That a manu-
facturer of some of our "G. I." winter
undies also makes scanties, undikins,
frillikins, sissikins, and yoohookins.
Ohh! My Goodness!!
Seein' Scenes: Soon with the warm
weather will come new stripes on the
bulging arms of newly-appointed NCO's.
Yep, the new recreation center is tak-
ing shape rapidly....gobs of guys tak-
ing sun baths on our peachy beach.....
The Private in the 93rd.Bat. who is
reluctant and just wants to sit under
a tree and smell flowers...the rise in
the amount of fan mail this guy Rorick
is getting? AND--who's the man who put
sand in ye olde reporter's tooth pow-
der? 'Fess up!--R. G.

Although this column has listed quite
a few of the better radio programs,
there are still a number of the top-
notchers that have eluded our mention,
programs such as:
"The Cavalcade of America" (NBC-Red
9:30 Mon.) Tune in and we'll guarantee
you a four-star performance by Raymond
Massey as he portrays Abraham Lincoln
in Carl Sandburg's latest masterpiece,
"The War Years."
Despite the numerous stories of ec-
centricity published about him, all Am-
erica respects the genius of Orson Wel-
les. He ranks among the top-flight ar-
tists in the entertainment world and if
you want to hear one of the finest sp-
eaking voices in the country, twist
your wrist to Mr. Welles' "Mercury The-
atre" presentations on Monday evenings
(9:00 CBS).
For some reason or other, this column
has always omitted one of your favorite
programs. But not intentionally, for
Bing Crosby's Music Hall variety show
certainly deserves the popularity it
enjoys. Bing, Mary Martin and a versa-
tile group give you an hour of music
and fun each Thursday (8:00 NBC-Red).
And for the benefit of those bathroom
baritones who never seem to sing our
favorite melodies exactly right, we're
going to pass on to them from week to
week the words of the Hit Parade's No.
One song. So, the next time your show-
er buddy is warbling the wrong words,
put him wise and then join in with him.


There'll be bluebirds over
The White Cliffs of Dover tomorrow,
Just you wait and see.
There'll be love and laughter
And peace ever after tomorrow
When the world is free.
The shepherd will tend his sheep
The valley will bloom again
And Jimmy will go to sleep
In his own little room again.
There'll be bluebirds over
The White Cliffs of Dover tomorrow,
Just you wait and see.
