The patience of the men at Tyndall
Field has been well rewarded, for, to-
day marks the opening of one of the
finest Army Post Motion Picture Theat-
ers in the country. Tyndall's new
theater, constructedby Army Engineers,
will seat 650 persons and is equipped
with the latest "movie" facilities.
At the present time it is planned
that the theater will offer two com-
plete shows; at 6:00 and 8:00 P.M. on
Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday
and Friday. Matinees are planned for
Saturday and Sundays. The box-office
will be opened a half-hour in advance

has asked for the co-operation'of all
theater patrons in observing the es-
tablished rule of "No Smoking".

issued to the squadron commanders for
distribution, and for the time being,

GENERAL MacARTHUR SPEAKS: "Corregidor needs no comment from me. It has
sounded its own story at the month of its guns. It has scrolled its own epitaph
on enemy tablets. But through the bloody haze of the last reverberation shot I
shall seem to see a vision of grim, gaunt, ghastly men still unafraid."
Could it be that they are unafraid because they have found God vital, and real
to their souls? These men, on the "front" do not "play" with religion. It is
real, to them, as reports from various Chaplains on Bataan and Corregidor demon-
"Religion plays a vital role in the lives of the beleaguered troops.
These troops, at the front, are finding God necessary."
"Religious and Biblical literature was at a premium from the beginning
of the Bataan front."
"The Bible is being read here by men as I've never seen it read before."
"A very genuine and great increase in religious interest has been shown."
"The spirit of sharing and cooperation among all personnel to the ad-
vantage of all concerned will always be one of the memorable incidents from the
Bataan campaign --- if we come out of this alive, we ought to be bigger and
broader men."
"A staff sergeant's right arm was totally disabled from a car accident.
The sergeant begged to be allowed to return to duty on the grounds that he could
handle a side arm with his left hand and do guard duty, thus releasing some other
guard for the front lines. Undaunted by refusals by several doctors, he kept
pleading until he was returned to duty with his unit."
These men are fighting for us. Should we support them? Could we let them
down? They do not "play" with religion, and neither should we.

Shall we attend Chapel Services?

Tyndall Field will receive its first
visit by a group of professional enter-
tainers on Wednesday night when Unit
IIll of the Camel Caravan arrives with
its troupe of top-flight performers.
Headlining the shows versatile Herb
Shriner, radio, theatre and night-club
star, who is known as the "Hoosier
Harmonica Humorist." Also featured on
the show are petite Jo Andrews, tap
dance artist, Lee Norton, song stylist
in the Latin manner, Norma Krieger,
"Lady of Magic", and Schiff and Skin-
ner, world champs of table tennis, and
the free and easy rhythms of Art Poppe
and his Camel Cavaliers.
The show will be staged at the Box-
ing Ring Area located in the rear of
Mess Hall #1, and is scheduled to be-
gin at 8:00 P.M. The performance will
be free to the men of Tyndall Field
and cigarettes will be distributed to
the audience. Come one, come alli

great democracies to smash Hitler.

Technical Sergeant John L. Ratley,
chief clerk of the ordnance property
office, is unmistakably proud of two
things: one is that he is a part of
the Army and the other is that he is a
member of the local ordnance company.
Evidence of the sergeants enthusiasm
for his work will be found in the fact
that he rose to his present grade in
less than two years, and that he at-
tained it when scarcely 21 years old.
Sergeant Ratley grew up near Mont-
gomery, Ala., and graduated from the
Sydney Lanier High School there in
1939. Following his graduation, he
did construction work for one year,
and enlisted in the Army in 1940.
The sergeant was stationed at Max-
well Field for a few months and was
then sent to Aberdeen Proving Ground,
Md., where he attended a special ord-
nance school for non-com's.
Following his return from ordnance
school, Sgt. Ratley was promoted to
the grade of staff sergeant and sent
to Eglin Field, where he was stationed
until transferred to Tyndall Field on
October 18, 1941. His work at Eglin
merited a promotion to technical ser-
geant on September 29, 1941.
In his present position, Sgt. Ratley
plays an important role in the requi-
sition of ordnance property. He is an
enthusiastic boxer and lists that as
his chief hobby. He is married and
has one child.


Anyone at Tyndall Field may pick up
the telephone receiver, dial four nu-
merals, and immediately get the party
or number desired.
It all sounds very simple, and act-
ually is simple in so far as the aver-
age user of the telephone is concerned.
However, few realize how great has
been the amount of hard work, skill
and managerial ability required to
build the system up to its present de-
gree of perfection.
Credit for Tyndall's efficient com-
munications system goes to the Signal
Service Company, which is under the
command of Captain John Thorpe, former
official of the American Telephone and
Telegraph Company.
Upon coming into the Army, a very
large number of men have had to take
up work in which they had no training
or experience in civilian life. This
has not been true in respect to Cap-
tain Thorpe, for his entire civilian
career has prepared him specifically
for the position he is now filling.
The Signal Company commander is a
native of Needham, Mass., and received
his education at M. I. T., from which
institution he graduated with S.B. and
S.M. degrees in 1936. He had four
years of ROTC.
Since 1936, he has served in various
capacities with A. T. & T. in Louis-
ville, Atlanta, Durham, and Charlotte.
He came to Tyndall in August, 1941.

The proud possessor of that beautiful
voice which comes from the Chapel on
Sunday mornings is Corporal Robert Way
whom, they say, has all the girls cra-
zy about his voice....Hint to the Fi-
nance Department: If you are in need
of a good manager and financier, sug-

(Ed. note: Gossip's s
Gossett attempted to
liquidate his woes
the other night and
awoke between two
beds -on the floor)

gts. Bernard and Cartwright, and
Pvts. Scanio and Menendez are back
from furlough looking none the worse
for wear.
Pvt. Edwards won his first fight
last Wednesday .ight, but somehow Pvt.
Brinkley can't seem to find competi-
tion. Pvt. Leto is on edge, waiting
for his furlough, claims he's going to
get married.
OBSERVATIONS: Pvt. Medero doesn't
believe in losing any sleep...A typi-
cal "Yardbird" is Pvt. McArthur...Pvt.
Mashburn is reputed to walk in his
sleep...Pvt. Wilkinson always seems to
be smiling, no matter what.--SM

round of applause for our 'Skipper"
whose popularity with the boys is A-1.
Also, a salute to Whittier on his pro-
motion to the Master Sergeant ranks.
W.C. Harris got his honorable dis-
charge but promised to rejoin us as
soon as he clears up his business.
Let's see what we can do about put-
ting out a first rate boxing team,men.
Hicks, Corsey, Clifton, Sheets, Cra-
ven, Calson, Mendel, Renfro and Rit-
chie are dependable basic soldiers
whose consistent squadron duty merits
recognition. --SS

vt. John Eo Lee came through with
flying colors in his boxing bout the
other night, now how about some of our
other budding pugilists getting into
shape so that they can represent the
outfit in the ring?
The soft-ball tean will be organiz-
ed very soon and we should be able to
hold our own against all comers. --KS

e lost a few more good men this
week. It's goodbye to Red Brewer, W.
Thomas, Jim Crumley and "Rocky" Cal-
vert. Incidentally,"Rocky" was one of
Coach Livingston's leather slinging
prospects. However, Dick can depend

on his "little" men to come through.
He has four of the best in P. Guastel-
la, Sam Castellana, Armanda Gonzalez
and "Kid" Truchano
There are some nice rumors about Jim
Crowell and a pair of gold bars, we
hope it goes beyond a rumor.
"Old man""Harry Hice is going to be
taught what makes a Jeep tick, mean-
while, Tom Woods is going to take over
his Jeep jumping job.--JW

here is no question as to what is
cooking in the outfit, because base-
ball is going like wildfire. Quite a
bit of healthy competition has been
worked up and last week saw Pvt. San-
ders' motor Pool Clowns down the "Big
Nine" by a score of 9-2. It was a
close game until "Rock Arm" Willingham
went to the mound for the "Clowns",
after 'that it was just a question of
how many runs the "Clowns"would score.
Sgt. Marquis, how about giving the
boys an even break with the visiting
femmes of P.Co? You know that we are
handicapped by your stripes and that
"personality" smile.

taff Sergeant E.M. Morgan returned
from school and then left us the next
day on a fifteen day furlough to Bir-
mingham, Ala., for the purpose of ac-
quiring a better half. Lots of luck
to you, Morgan.
Gas rationing has eased the mind of
Sgt. Underwood, he doesn't have to
worry about his Georgis heart-throb
going out on too many joy-rides with
the home town boys.
Tech. Carl Brandt leaves Tyndall in
the near future for a course at the
Finance School. (Hurry back, Carl).
Tech. J.So Blazak left on his long
awaited furlough. --CB.

Pvt. Joe Gentilquoe was certainly
glad to see his room-mates back from
(Continued to "Yardbird Sez" page).

Won Lost

Bane 9 7
Nimocks 7 9
Vernocy 6 10
Highest Score of the
Week: Mrs. Pluenneke 148

Thursday saw the neck-and-neck finish
of the second bowling tournament. The
Morton team proved worth its salt.
After the first game they had it in the
bag. They were lucky for in the second
game Bane's team really outrolled the
champions, undaunted by the knowledge
that the tournament itself was lost.
In fact the keynote of this tournament
has been team spirit. On the last day,
knowing they were the losers, Vernocy's
and Nimocks' teams bowled just as hard
as if they had had a chance, to the end
that the Nimocks' team finally got off
the bottom.
The highest individual score for the
entire tournament was Mrs. Pluenneke's
152. Those showing marked improvement
were Mrs. Wiseman, Mrs. Singleton, Mrs.
Wilkins, Mrs. Alcott, Mrs. Morrell, and
Mrs. Hester.
It was decided to postpone our next
tournament until cool weather, so we
expect to see everyone at the beach.
In anticipation of this, the party
after the last day of bowling was at
Panama City Beach. The picnic was a
success from cocktails to sunburn and
was a grand finale to the tournament.

At a recent gathering Mrs.
Class was seen to be taking
lessons on how to "Put Your
Little Foot". *** With all
our present shortages Mrs.
Bryan gets holes burned in
her new silk hose-a horrible
catastrophe. Mrs. Thompson
says, "I'm married" is the
proper response to "Is this an official
call?" *** We're glad to see Mrs. Blom-
quist all settled in her new home-too
bad that she is going to be unsettled
so soon. *** What is Mrs. Fox to do
with her new bowling shoes now that the
tournament is over? *** Another new-
comer to MacArthur--Mrs. Bristle. 9




Nine completed sweaters were handed
in, in exchange for yarn to knit nine
new ones. This definitely accounts for
our stock of blue and green yarn. Mrs.
C. C. Moore promised to open the khaki
and navy yarn next Monday afternoon.
Here is the sequel to the first poem
for First Aiders by Amy Grief:

(Apologies to Everybody)

Lady, if I see you lying
On the ground and (maybe) dying,
Though your gore flow red, or blue,
I won't try to bandage you!
I'll remember to forget
How to use a tourniquet!
"Artificial Respiration"
Might cause Me a palpitation!
If "queer symptoms" you should show
You may lie "in status quo"!
And I hardly need to hint .
I won't tie you to a splint!
Do not fret I won't try "traction"-
If I feel I must show action
And you're lying, prone and white,
I will faint myself, from fright!

The Army and Navy WPA Service Center,
located at 210 Harrison Avenue, is
sponsored by the local Pilot Club and
is operated under the supervision of
the Florida Recreation Project, WPA.
The Center is open from 9:00 A.M.
until 10:00 P.M. each day. In addition
to reading and writing facilities, it

A bridge party is held every Thurs-
day evening with prizes and refresh-
ments being furnished by the young
women that attend. A community sing
is held every Saturday night followed
by social games, and a bingo party is
staged each Sunday afternoon.


The big event of the week was sup-
posed to have been the boxing bouts
scheduled for last Wednesday evening.
Eight bouts were originally Acheduled
but all had to be cancelled at the
last moment because too many contest-
ants found that they could not be re-
lieved from their regular duties.
However, the A&R Office announces
that a new fighting card will be drawn
up and these bouts will be held on
Friday night at 7:45 P.M. The switch
to Friday night is being made in order
to permit the Camel Caravan Road Show
to use the boxing ring as a stage for
their performance here on Wednesday
evening at 8:00 P.M.

So far, the turnout for the two pre-
vious baseball practice sessions were
not quite as large as was expected.
It was hoped that enough men would be
interested so that two and possibly
three separate teams could be formed
to represent Tyndall Field in compet-
ition with other air base teams.
All men interested and possessing
ability are urged to attend the regu-
lar Saturday afternoon practice se-
sions at 3:30 P.M. and also watch the
bulletins for announcements concerning
mid-week practice calls.

She: "Last night I dreamt that you
were chasing me all around my apart-
ment. Then suddenly the dream turned
into a nightmare."
He: "Why did that happen, I wonder?"
She: "You caught me!

Ashes to Ashes,
Dust to Dust.
If it weren't for paint,

Angry Motorist: "Some of you pedes-
trians walk as if you owned the street."
Pedestrian: "And some of you motor-

Shoe Clerk: "Do you know what causes
the modern girl to wear out so much
shoe leather?
Sheba: "No."
Shoe Clerk; "That's right."

The Cutie: "I dreamed about you last
The Gent: "You did!"

Nothing annoys a girl more than to be
hungry for love and then go out with a
motorist who wants to eat up the road.

I feel so sad I almost cry
Each time I think about the guy
Who bought himself a piece of land
And built a roadside hot-dog stand

And then again I know a gent
Whose every bit of time was spent
In wheedling dough from his relations
To build a chain of service stations

Another lad of high ambition
Bought a boat ideal for fishing
He thought his fortune would be made
By counting on the tourist trade

Now for the moral of this piece
Don't ever take a long-term lease
Since plans of mice and men, you see
Are duck soup for the'."i-

A circuit of Time was completed when
z/' gt. John McClellan walked into Post
Headquarters last Wednesday afternoon
and discovered that Tyndall's Person-
nel Sergeant-Major was T/Sgt. Robert
Donan. Donan and McClellan were "bud-
dies" back in 1938 when they were stu-
dents at Hind's Junior College in Ray-
mond, Miss.
When they parted in '38, Donan join-
ed the Army and since that time has
been stationed at four different Army
units, (Maxwell Field, Jackson Air
Base, Eglin Field and Tyndall Field).
Meanwhile, Jo? .--' McClellan went East
to New York City where he obtained a
position in one of the leading hotels.
When hostilities began overseas,
McClellan applied for appointment as
an Aviation Cadet. While waiting for
his application to be accepted, he
became impatient and decided to go up
to Canada and join the Air Force there.
In Canada, McClellan completed his
training as a sergeant pilot and was
looking forward to being sent across
the Atlantic for combat duty, when the
American-Canadian Commission announced
that American citizens who were ser-
ving with the R.C.A.F. would be given
an opportunity to take an examination
and transfer into the U.S. Army Air
Forces. Johnny, and hundreds of other
American youths who had enlisted with
the Canadian Forces, took advantageof
the offer and have now been transfer-
red to various U.S. Air Bases.
Many of the sergeant-pilots who ar-
rived at Tyndall Field were a bit dis-
appointed when they learned that their
duties here would consist mainly of
towing targets for aerial gunnery prac-
tice, but they all realize the impor-
tance of this phase of the student-
gunnery program and they feel that if
this is the task the U.S. asks of them,
they will certainly do their best at
McClellan, who hails from Louisville,
Miss., and several of his mates were
interviewed by a "Target" reporter and
when asked how it felt to be back in
the U. S. A., the answer came back in
unison: "Damn Goodl"
