Army Air Forces Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Fla., May 9, 1942


COnTEST won ev P.F.C.WILLIS


Captain Ammon McClellan, Tyndall's
new Public Relations Officer, former
Florida State Housing Co-ordinator,
and Area Manager of the Bureau of Cen-
sus for North Carolina in 1940. He
has been an outstanding figure in
Florida public housing.

AFR GOCICTY aeGinS ACTIVITIES
The Army Emergency Relief Society in
this vicinity has already started its
first great money raising project.
The local chapter, headed by a com-
mittee of prominent citizens of Panama
City, has held its initial rehearsal
for those men who volunteered their
talent for the gala Minstrel Show to
be presented in the Ritz Theatre on
Wednesday evening, May 27th. Tickets
for the blackface musical show are pr-
iced at $1, with all receipts going to
the AER Fund. Meanwhile, contributions
by the men on the Field have begun to
reach Col. Hyndman's office.


There is at least one very proud mo-
ther in Pensacola, Florida, today, for
last evening, Mrs. J.S. Willis receiv-
ed the following telegram from Colonel
Warren A. Maxwell:
"WISH TO ADVISE YOU THAT YOUR SON,
PRIVATE FIRST CLASS JAMES WILLIS, HAS
BEEN AWARDED FIRST PLACE IN TYNDALL
FIELD'S MOTHER'S DAY POETRY CONTEST.
IN RECOGNITION OF THIS HONOR HE IS BE-
ING GIVEN A FREE TELEPHONE CALL TO YOU
AT 10;15 A.M. SUNDAY, MAY 10TH.
MY CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU, AN AMERI-
CAN 1OThER, WHOSE SON FOUND TIME
BPT7E: I DUTY HOURS -TO EXPRESS SUCH
WORTHY THOUGHTS OF DEVOTION AND REV-
ERENCE."'
Pfc. Willis, Tyndall's newly crowned
"Poet Laureate", left no doubt in the
minds of the Contest officials as to
whether or not he merited the First
Prize, a free telephone call home.
This Hq. & Hq. Squadron soldier, who
is a clerk in the Post File Room, sub-
mitted not one, but six, meritable
Mother's Day verses. Three of these
verses appear on the following page.
Director Thomas Oliver of the local
USO Club has already completed arrange-
ments for the telephone call and also
the recorded messages that will be
made by the two Tyndall men that tied
for second place in the contest.
The Second Place winners were Pfc.
Abraham Kinberg of the Quartermaster
Detachment, and Pfc. Michael Kurec of
Lt. Eugene Englebrecht's Squadron.
Oddly enough, all three winners are
privates first class.

POETRY


- -


----;-










-"BA


No word could do you justice, or tell what you've been
through,
I know no words of reverence that are worthy enough for
you.
God grant this prayer and I'll need not make another:
Help me to be what I want to be-- "A glowing tribute
to MOTHER."

With a kind and gentle touch she smoothed my tousled
hair
And brushed away the teardrops that childish woe left
there.
She taught us to laugh and forsake the tears --to be
kind to one another.
So let me pause today and reverently pray "Thank God
for my dear MOTHER."

The fust time I remember Maw, was 'way, 'way back there
when--
I used to keep my trousers up with one big safety pin.
Fum then on we been buddies, through thick and through
the thin,
I guess that Maws are the bept thing that could happen
to us men.

(The above are three of six poems submitted by the
FIRST PRIZE WINNER, Pfc. JAMES WILLIS.)


Seyand te-Wpowna.
There's no other than my Mother, She's
quite beyond compare,
She's simple, sweet, and loving, She's
someone I wouldn't share,
She's my Mother, and no other
could ever take her place.
How I long to once again be near her,
--to kiss her lovely face.

(The above poem was submitted by Pfc.
A. Kinberg of the Quartermaster Det.
Award: Second Place Tie.)


Wln o b R< s 4V
Being a U.S. Soldier
on this Mother's Day,
I'll send my Ma a card,
and this is what I'll sayl
"We'll win our fight--
for our cause is true,
And when my job is done,
I'll come back to you.

(The above poem was submitted by Pfa.
Michael M. Kurec of Lt. Engelbrechtts
outfit. Award: Second Place Tie.)

[ ADJUTANT
CAPTAIN HOWELL


With Technical Sergeant George Lee,
now acting first sergeant of Det. 907
Q. M. Co., the Army is very decidedly
a family institution since six members
of his immediate family are now in the
service, leaving only one brother who
is expected to be inducted soon.
The Sergeant grew up at Ft. Sill,
Oklahoma, where his father is station-
ed. He has three sisters who are mar-
ried to Army men, and has a brother
in the Q. M. C. at Abilene, Texas.
At one time all members of the fam-
* ily except one brother-in-law in the
Coast Artillery were stationed at Ft.
Sill. Now they are scattered through-
out the states of Texas, Illinois,
Florida, California, and Oklahoma.
Sergeant Lee enlisted in 1935 at Ft.
Sill, where he remained during his
first enlistment. He then left the
Army for one year but reenlisted at
Barksdale Field in 1939. He was sta-
tioned there until transferred to Tyn-
dall Field as one of the first group
of approximately fifty men sent here
last September. He was promoted to
staff sergeant on Feb. 8, 1942,and to
technical sergeant on April 1, 1942.
Sgt. Lee has served in many phases
of Quartermaster work; and the effi-
ciency and personal qualities he dem-
onstrated in these activities earned
for him his rapid promotion and his
responsible position as one of the
most valuable men in his organization.


Commonly known as the "Goodwill Am-
bassador of the Army", Captain Thomas
A.,Howell, Post Adjutant here, is a
very highly regarded and widely liked
figure on the Field.
Knomw to his intimates simply as
"Tom" Howell, the Adjutant has a large
number of friends, not only among Army
personnel but also among the civilian
population of this community.
It is the mission of the Adjutant to
see that the orders and wishes of the
Commanding Officer are carried out,
and that administrative details are
properly handled. This is a big as-
signment; but throughout all the per-
plexities of his position the Captain
will rarely be found without his char-
acteristically good disposition.
Although naturally a jovial and fun-
loving personality, the Adjutant can
get tough when the interests of the
Army demand it.
Captain Howell is a native of Marion,
Ala., and was educated at Marion Ins-
titute and at Presbyterian College,
Clinton, S. C. He was called to act-
ive duty with the Air Corps on August
15, 1940, at Maxwell Field, Ala., and
was immediately placed on special duty
at Eglin Field, Fla., where he was at
first Acting Quartermaster and Supply
Officer and later Post Adjutant. He
came to Tyndall Field on May 15, 1941.
The Captain's favorite pastimes are
fishing and golfing.

" HE DOWNS ANDO'SC"
OF AERIAL 6UNNEXY














SWe suggest that a
suitable medal be
Awarded Captain How-
ell, who kept Major
Clarvoe from "fall-
ing" into our local
.waters while on a
Recent fishing trip.
...If it's a bit of
humor ou wan every day, just look up
Lt. Horace Hester. He always has a
new one...Do you know where Lt. Will-
iams spends his lunch hour? Stroll
over to Mess Hall #1 and I shouldn't
be at all surprised if you didn't find
the Lt. there keeping his usual date.
...Wonder how Lt. Dee is progressing
with his hog farm?...Did you know that
Lt. Class is quite an accomplished
pianist...Lt. Dickerman is now the
Post's Photographic Officer...The main
attraction on the Field the other nite
was Lt. Slater running around on his
bike...and speaking of bikes, I hear-
Lt. Powers tried to resume diplomatic
relations with a two-wheeled veloci-
pede recently and found that the years
of arduous legal practice had taken
their toll...'Tis a good excuse, Lt.
Lynn's having one of his men in the
hospital so he can go calling...Lt.
Corr, I hear, is looking forward to
the next officers' party so that he
can come decked in his newly-acquired
"whites".....For an interesting study
of one of Tyndall's officers, look
through Captain McClellan's Scrap Book.
Captain Williams says he could tell me
some dope on Major Carnahan, but he's
afraid it would come under the heading
of "RESTRICTED"...Major Shipman seems
to be having all sorts of trouble with
his "Sugar Reports"...Hope Lt. Shofner
gets rid of his sunburn before time
for payday arrives...Lt. Burkhart is
going to make the Baccalaureate Add-
ress to a local school. Could it pos-
sibly be a "political" speech in view
of the forthcoming election?...TYPICAL
TYNDALL SCENE: One officer pursuing
another to exchange his "tropical" hat.


Sgt. McGee, of the Air Base, is always
happy to pay a visit to Personnel in
Post Headquarters...Sgt. Ralph Edwards
is surely the efficient house-keeper.
..Glad to see Davy Savino back from
Furlough. How did you leave the New
York beauties, Davy?...Corporal Edge,
Post Office, is away for a few days.
From what they tell me, he has gone
home to make it a twosome...FLASH...
FLASH...Hear ye, hear ye, that pride
of the Quartermaster, Tyndall's one
and only ED POSDEN, was restricted for
three days. And why was he restricted?
It all came about as the result of a
cake he received from Marian...Vihy
can't John Christiana find his chair
when he starts to sit down? Those
late hours aren't good for anyone,
John...Pete Catalano says while he was
home on furlough, he automatically
walked guard...I'll betcha'one thing,
though, he wasn't walking alone.....
S/Sgt.Wilson, A.B. Squadron, will take
on a wife sometime in June...We are at
a loss to understand which is more im-
portant to T/Sgt. Underwood, Finance,
whether he'd rather spend his time
fishing or...Carl Thomas, Quarter-
master, says it's wonderful for one's
father to have a secretary...Pvt. Wal-
ler, Ordnance Dept., bought a diamond
while in Knoxville recently...can't
imagine what it's for...Is Sgt. Jack
Parks doing his duty by Nell?...Why
wont Sgt. Steger talk about his recent
trip to Miami?...Pfc. Mitchell, of the
Photo Section, handled his assignment
of the Pencil Pushers like a profes-
sional, which he was before joining
the Army...Sgt. Ben Alford is reputed-
ly the Post's "Pool Shark"...And judg-
ing from the reports
from his detachment,
First Sergeant Allen
is definitely not a
horticulturist.... .Red
Brewer and Fred Foster
are conspicuous by S
their absence, even
the S/cars are lonely.













T MEDICAL
She hospital staff welcomed the ar-
rival of 2nd Lt. Corrine Curry last
week, and with the new landscaping job,
it's getting to be pleasure to get
"sick" these days. (Not to mention the
female civilian employees, who are re-
sponsible for the unusually large num-
ber of neatly combed heads of hair and
sparkling eyes.)
Our softball teams as yet undefeat-
ed and we extend a challenge to any
outfit that thinks they can do the
trick. A vote of thanks to Max Senkinc
on his swell job of grading the in-
field. --AK

WA LT. KEATING
welcome to our four Flying Sergeants,
Armstrong, Benson, Boro and Bozzi.
And greetings to Cpls. Cain, Callahan
and Hill, and Pvts. Marrana and Pad-
gett, who have returned' from school.
Our new pool table is getting quite
a workout and some of the boys are
learning "the hard way." --JAC

O ORDNANCE
ur Day Room opened without any of
the traditional fanfare, but its fa-
cilities are certainly appreciated,
including the new pool table.
Sgt. Ridulph, along with some of the
other men, is heading north on fur-
lough...wonder if Sgt. Barr can handle
his social obligations while he's gone?
Sgt. Ratley is training our boxing
hopefuls for the tournament. Since
our basketball and softball teams are
"tops," we're hoping that the boxing
squad will rate the same. --MLY

lW LT. ENGELBRECHT
Welcome to Borghese, Hemila, Knoll,
Worely, Nunnally, and Kitzmiller, who
have returned to the out-fit after a
period of D.S. at various mechanical
schools. Sgt. Burke is back after
having been confined to the hospital
since last February...and congratula-
tions to the new "stripers." --DPA


K LT. WATSON
eesler Field gave us back some of
our veterans last weekend, and the men
also welcomed the return of one of
the most able word-phrasers in the
South, Pvt. Timanus, who, along with
Vickers, has taught the "Yankees" a
completely new language.
Sgts. McKaig and High, the Tennessee
Twins, are back and are sprouting
"rockers."...Sgt. Sauls has been doing
a capable job, but there's no doubt
that we all miss 1st Sgt. Asbury's
dawning "pep" talks...and Pvt. Living-
ston just dotes on "seeing red." --J

C LT. WHITEHURST
congratulations to Sgt. Blasingame
.who has taken unto himself a lovely
wife...and Sgt. Boudreaux is planning
to follow suit this weekend. Boud-
reaux will tie the knot with the "girl
back home" when she arrives here, the
ceremony will be held in P. C.
It's too bad that Churchill can't
have his bunk moved into the reproduc-
tion room, then we could bring him his
meals and mail and he would never have
to leave the building at all! --RSB

LT. TAYLOR
We finally got our pool table assem-
bled, and even the passersby can hear
the thud of the balls as they drop in-
to the leather pockets. A hearty wel-
come to the boys who just returned
from Keesler Field. Did you have a
"big time," fellows?
Cpl. Olson's "Seymour Island" seems
to have faded beyond the horizon.
Greetings to the new flying non-cans,
an addition of which we are very proud.

rT MATERIEL
Ao Lt. Adkins, who has left the out-
fit on a new assignment, we sincerely
wish the best of luck, and to our new
Commanding Officer, Captain Wilkins,
we extend a hearty welcome.
From reliable sources we hear that
Sgt. Hurst acquires that sleepy look

from Port St. Joe...and those cigars
represent blessed events in the form
of additional stripes...Pvt. Phil Da-
vis gets that droopy look whenever
Louise neglects the U. S. Mails.
We're planning a big shindig on May
15th down at the Recreation Center,
complete with music by the Tyndall
Field Band and girls through the cour-
tesy of Panama City.

F AIR BASE GROUP
firstt Sergeant Hodges is off on a
* furlough again...he has to plant a
garden. S/Sgt. Couch is "topkicking"
meanwhile, and is doing a commendable
job of it.
Morale was decidedly not static last
week...what with all the promotions
that were announced!...Sgt. Walton,
who was the S/Sgt. you were going to
invite out on the green when you made
sergeant?...Earl Moye passed out ci-
gars in celebration of his 13th pro-
motion in 15 months. --TRW
(Aside to TRW...please don't get ex-
cited during your first enlistment and
stop faking and get back to work.)

TAT LT. MARCHESI
W welcomee to our Flying Sergeants,
Smith and Stone, glad to have you, men.
Farewell, and good luck to Lt. Shields
on his new duties.
S/Sgt. Kester marches down the sac-
red aisle next week, 'way up thar in
New York...We're proud that so many of
our outfit answered Col. Hyndman's re-
quest for theatrical talent....Pvt.
Bowman is both Post Librarian and
Chapel Organist...S/Sgt. Bender was
welcomed back by his many friends
after a stay at the hospital, but now
Renfro, the squadron clown, is ailing.
Our bunch is completely furlough-
punchy-they're either coming or going.

QUARTERMASTER
ur congratulations to Pfc. Herpin
who was married in the Post Chapel on
Saturday afternoon. And to S/Sgt .
Gossett--good luck on your new job.


One of the boys waiting to go before
the O.T.S. examining board tried to
advance his cause by claiming a score
of "93" in last week's "Target" quiz.
Welcome back to Pvts. Savino, Cata-
lano, and O'Brien, who have returned
from furlough...Pfc. Henderson and
Pvts. Gross and Mitchell, merit thanks
for their part in making last Thurs-
day's dance the success it was.
No more Friday evening passes until
Saturday inspections show signs of im-
provement...sorry, girls. --HHR

Te 846th QUARTERMASTER
he men are having quite a bit of
fun these nights at the USO dances
held at the Pearl Harbor Club. Every-
body tries to win a permanent partner
for the evening...gracious, soldiers,
share your partners with your buddies.
The jitterbugs had a grand time last
Thursday evening, until it came time
for the contest, then there wasn't a
"jit" to be seen...were they afraid
that Pvt. Bernard Smith would walk
away with the prize?...Smitty really
put on an exhibition, but isn't it
strange that when it comes to morning
exercises, his muscles seem to tighten
up?
Pvt. Parrish, if you want some info
on the local debs, call by and have a
talk with Pfc. Grace. He has all the
dope and you can carry on from there.
You fellows who were surprised at
Pvt. Mingo's trips to P.C., must re-
menber that a rolling stone gathers
no moss. --'i

STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL: Was there any significance in the fact that Mrs. Morgan
wrapped Lt. Morgan's lunch in a road map the other day? *** Mrs. Pluenneke's idea
of knitting for the Red Cross is "Knit one row, Purl one row, Smoke one row." ***
Mrs. Thorpe is so delighted that her slight operation is behind her rather than
before. *** Six lessons from Mesdames Howell and Samuel will teach you all you
need to know about "Trucking down to iattie's" *** Mrs. Nimocks is said to be
compiling a volume on her travels. *** Be sure to take the paper bag off the pom-
pano this time, Ruth. *** Mrs. Maxwell says she has to go to Pensacola or get a
Seeing Eye Dog. It would be a scurvy trick to tell what we know on Mrs. Alcott.
** Mrs. Morton's knee closely resembles a nutmeg grater after her bicycle ride.

The Face in the Glass
When you get what you want, in your
struggle for pelf,
And the world makes you King for a Day;
Go to a mirror and look at yourself---
And see what that man has to say.

He's the one to please--
never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end.
And you've passed life's difficult
test
If the one in the glass is your friend.

You may be life's "Jack Horner" -
and chisel a plum,
And think you're a wonderful guy -
But the man in the glass says you're
only a bum,
If you can't look him straight in the
eye.

You can fool the whole world down the
pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass.
But your final reward will be heart-
aches and tears
If you've cheated the man in the glass.

MoralitQ
(Another in a weekly series of perti-
nent thoughts by a veteran soldier on
the Post.)

In reviewing the life of all of the
great men of America, past and present,
I find that above all things else,
they were moral men; men who had re-
spect for their fellows and a capacity
for doing good without looking for re-
ward.
Bravery seems to be an attribute of
the man who is moral and who possesses
fortitude and persevering virtue.
Your morals are your own, but the
results of immorality become a commu-
nity problem and physical rottenness
inevitably follows moral laxness and
therefore becomes a military problem.
The "Tough" guy; the soldier without
morals and reasonable standards of cn-
duct is a liability to the Service, a
bore to his associates and without
fail, a braggart. You know who I mean,
--you see his name on the Bulletin
Board often.
Morality is a basic quality of every
good soldier.















Tyndall's pressing problem of provid-
ing a playing field for its baseball
enthusiasts will soon be solved. Lt.
Thompson of the A & R Office states
that the softball field near the Air
Base Group Headquarters is being coat-
ed with a surface of clay which wil 1
make it suitable for baseball also.
Meanwhile softball hostilities are
continuing and last week's results in-
clude a 25-15 shellacking of Lt. Weis'
men by Lt. Fogel's team.

Although originally planned for last
Wednesday, the boxing tournament will
begin this i'dned:y evening at 7:45.
The boxing ring, which is located in
the rear of mess hall i1, is equipped
with lighting facilities for evening
bouts.
So far, twenty-three men are entered
in the tourney, ranging in weight div-
isions from 118 Ibs. to 200 lbs. Each

PARACHUTE SONG: "It Don't Mean A Thing
If You Don't Pull That String."

LAMENT OF A TYNDALL POET

My brain has gone plumb dizzy
And my eyes are seeing double
I know I love my Mother
But this rhyming gives me trouble
-James Willis

"My wife ran away with my best
friend."
"Was he good-looking?"
"I don't know. Never met the
fellow!"


Mrs. Jones: "T'wasn't more than
a minute after I got in bed last
night before I was asleep in the
arms of Morphine."
Mrs. Smith: "You mean Morpheus,
don't you? Morphine is a dope."
Mrs. Jones: "Well? Do you know
of a bigger one than my husband?"


"Waiter," said the fussy diner,
"I want some oysters. But they
mustn't be too large or too small,
too old or too tough, and they
mustn't be salty. I want them
cold and I want them at once."
"Yes, sir," bowed the waiter,
"with or without pearls?"

ODE TO LILLY DACHa, HAT DESIGNER

Ladies in the htig;t of fashion
Have a never ending passion
For hats that oft-times look peculiar
And whose appearance sometimes fool ya'

Some would look much more in place
Were they not put above the face
But in a case--at some museum
Where everyone could go and see 'emi

Some are high and some are wide,
And some have feathers on the side,
And some have been so cruelly bent--
You wonder if milady's coming--or went!

There's just one thing I'd like to do,
Before I leave, for parts anew,
Find out just what Dache is fed--
Each night before she's put to bed!


BUCK SERGEANT









Honesty is the best policy. Take it
from Private John Vetter, of Fort
Bragg, North Carolina. Recently he
received a letter addressed to John
Vetter at the reception center at Fort
Dix, New Jersey. In the envelope was
a crisp new five-dollar bill. A gl-
ance at the letter, however, showed
Vetter it certainly was not meant for
him. So he returned the whole works,
banknote and all, to the sender, a
young lady in Evansville, Indiana.
Impressed with his honesty, the girl
told her friends at the office about
it. They promptly started writing--
thirty girls--and in the first batch
of mail he received cash gifts total-
ing ten dollars!

A cadet, after transfer to another
field for advanced instruction, wrote
to his former tactical officer in this
vein: "At last, after weeks of silent
suffering, I am now far from the range
of your jurisdiction, and as far as I
am concerned, you and the whole of
your staff can go jump in the lake."
A few days later he received a com-
pletely official reply, running like
this: "All information as to troop
movements must be submitted on Form
345 B."

It's a smaller world than Private
Henry Cooper can tolerate. Before he
enlisted in the Army, Cooper's life
was miserable. Every morning he was
blasted out of bed by an early-rising
trumpeter who lived--and practiced--in
the apartment above his. Private Mor-
ton Appleton, who bunks next to Cooper
at Camp Wolters, Texas, happens to play
a mean trumpet. One night when he was
tooting away, Private Cooper interrup-
ted to tell him about the fellow on the
floor above back in Venice, California.
"He woke me up with the darned thing
every day," Cooper complained. Apple-
ton asked him where he lived in Venice.
"1432 Hill Road," Cooper answered.
The trumpeter grinned slyly as he
raised the trumpet to his lips again:
"That's where I lived."
