TECHNICAL SERGEANT VALENTINE
SOne of the oldest landmarks at Tyn-
dall Field, which is not quite a year
old, is Technical Sergeant William L.
Balentine, who was one of the first
fifteen men sent to Tyndall Field last
summer from Maxwell Field, Ala.
Upon cominrgto 7 deill, Sergeant Bal-
entine was made chief message center
clerk. On February 1, 1942, he was
promoted from staff to technical ser-
geant and shortly thereafter was made
assistant post sergeant major. Last
Friday he was assigned to the office
of the Director of Training.
The Sergeant grew up and was edu-
cated at Florence, Ala. Following his
S graduation from high school in 1935,
he was a salesman for four years. He
enlisted at Maxwell Field in 1939 and
was made a clerk in the Air Corps Tac-
tical School. He later attended the
Air Corps Technical School,Lowry Field,
Colo., and returned to Montgomery as
publications distribution clerk for
SEACTC. He also did squadron personnel
work at the Alabama training center.
During the time Sgt. Balentine ser-
ved here as/chief message center clerk
\and as assistant sergeant major, he
proved to be/one of themost efficient
clerical workers on the Post. He is
SmarrLetd 'an lives ear East Bay Bridge.
The staff officer in charge of plans
and training at Tyndall Field is Major
Thomas B. Carnahan, who began at the
tender age of four his long civilian
career as a stage, screen, and radio
The Major has had a large amount of
active duty in the Army and has served
in many capacities. Although very
fond of military life, he intends to
return to the stage when the present
national emergency is over.
As S-3 of Colonel Maxwell's general
staff, he is responsible for the plans
and training activities of the Post
other than those that come under the
direction of the Department of Train-
ing. He worked out the original sche-
dule of training for the Air Base Group.
Having soldiered with the Cavalry,
Field Artillery, and Infantry both as
an officer and an enlisted man, the
Major has a sound foundation for his
Before coming to Tyndall Field on
Dec. 11, 1942, Major Carnahan was as-
sistant commandant of the Army Aerial
Navigation School, Coral Gables, Fla.
He is married and has an eleven month
old son, whom the Major expects some
day to become a candidate for pilot

Note to 1st Sgt. Asbury: We know of
several fellows who would be willing
to put grass on our lawns...if someone
would give us the go-ahead signal.

sary so close to us...We certainly

Pvt. Olden Smith thought that he had

tainly aren't in Sgt. Allen's class.WW

It' all right to be late if you can
do as Mrs. Pluenneke and Mrs. Mooor id last Thursday.
Both were penalized 10 pins for tardiness and both
rolled a strike on their first balls. All was for-
given. Tuesday's tussle was quite congenial, with
all teams marking a won one, lost one. On Thursday,
however, two teams won two and two teams lost two.
While a certain captain was vacationing, her team
finally crashed through. Looking at the present
scores it seems unlikely that we'll have a repetition

only a week left in our tournament, the excitement is
running high, so come down and bowl or cheer. Any of you who would like to cel-
ebrate with the victors and mourn with the losers at our picnic immediately fol-
lowing the last day of play, are invited. The only credential is a twentyfive
cent piece paid to Mrs. Pluenneke, the Treasurer. The picnic particulars will

The sudden drop in rubber stocks
S Will soon result in falling socks,
For in this land of trade and barter,
Where will a fellow find a garter?
And what's a far more serious hurdle,
Where will a girlie get a girdle?
How can she ever hope to fetch
A man when minus her two-way stretch.
To warm cold feet, please tell me
Replace the old hot water bottle?
And there are several serious slants
On babies robbed of rubber pants.
It also seems, that since this drastic
Lessening of things elastic,
It takes a great deal more of skill
To try to stretch a dollar bill.
It has been considered impractical,
economically and otherwise, to print a
copy of the "TARGET" for every man on
the Field. The present method has
been to distribute approximately one
copy for every three men in a squadron.
However, we realize that quite a few
of the boys have been in the habit of
sending their copies of the "TARGET"
to the folks back home, and in order
to take care of any shortage that may
arise because of this or any other
situation, we wish to announce that
extra copies of the "TARGET" may be
obtained FREE OF CHARGE by calling for
same at the Public Relations Office.

A novel means of keeping himself

Quiz games are all right, but there
is not much place for them in the
serious business of training aviators
for Uncle Sam. So thinks Major Tr.i'-r', 3
Wildes, of the Army Flying School at
Lubbock, Texas--although he'd rather
forget the whole idea. The other day
he picked up the radiophone mike in
the control tower at the Field and
asked the name of a cadet leading a
formation overhead. "Guess," came the
reply. The Major was plenty hot--
until he learned he was really, talking
to Aviation Cadet Roy Guess:
Private Wong was in wrong. Citizens
of Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania, were
having their troubles. Several weeks
ago George Wong, Turtle Creek's favor-
ite laundryman, had enlisted--and he'd
been whisked off to camp before he had
a chance to clear his shelves. Nobody
else was able to decipher his laundry
markings, and his customers' appeal
through the Red Cross and USO to his
commanding officer at Fort TMcClellan,
Alabama, finally got him back in Turtle
Creek on furlough--so he could get
their laundry back to them!
