al for the past six weeks, is reported
to be one of the finest productions
ever to be staged in this vicinity.
Among the prominent professionals
appearing in the "olio" are Major Car-
nahan and his wife, veterans of the
stage and screen, and Bud Davis, mana-
ger of the local theatres, who also is
an ex-trouper. The music for the show
will be furnished by Tyndall's band,
Sighs of relief echoed throughout
the nation last Tuesday as millions of
men in the armed forces relaxed for
the first time in months. The occa-
sion of course, was the passing of the
famed pay bill by C'-'r.'3as, providing
for a minimum wage of '50 for privates

THOUGHTS FROM HERE AND THERE
"The worst turns the best to the brave."
"There is a peace which cometh after sorrow not the peace which over Eden
brooded but that which triumphed in Gethsemane."
"As a flower is known by its fragrance, we are known by the deeds we do."
"There is a flower that blooms in the desert (the night-blooming cereus) so
fragrant that one blossom perfumes a considerable area. When this flower, which
for months has been a bundle of nondescript-looking sticks growing in the sand,
begins to unfold its petals, the reverent Indians believe that a Great Spirit
walks the sands, and they regard the exquisite flowering with something of the awe
reserved for the mystery of birth and death."
"I held it truth, with him who sings
To one clear harp in divers tones,
That men may rise on stepping stones
Of their dead selves to higher things."
"The strongest characters are those which have been haimered out of mistakes
and failures; those hio, like the oyster, have turned the irritating grain of sand
into a pearl."
Chaplain Herbert T. Wilson

4 MASTER SERGEANT I .. T.U
A key member of the all-important
ground crew which makes possible the
keeping aloft of Tyndall Field's air-
craft and the successful prosecution
of its training program is Master Ser-
geant Walter E. Peterson, line chief
for one of the school squadrons.
Sergeant Peterson enlisted in Sept.,
1920 and spent one year in the Cavalry.
He has had 15 years of service in the
Hawaiian Islands, where he was a mech-
anic in the Infantry, Coast Artillery,
and the Air Corps from 1924 to 1939.
The line chief grew up and was edu-
* cated in Philadelphia, Pa.
Sergeant Peterson came to Tyndall
Field in December, 1941, from Maxwell
Field, Ala., where he was a post in-
spector from January 1939 until he
came to Tyndall.
The Sergeant is married and lives at
the Cove Gardens Apartments.
NEWMAN PROMOTED TO MAJOR
The promotion of Captain Walter D.
Newman, supervisor of the ground ran-
ges at Tyndall Field, to the rank of
major was announced here Wednesday.
Captain Newman came to Tyndall on
Dec. 8, 1941, from Camp Blanding, Fla.,
where he was stationed from the time
he was called to active duty (Nov. 25,
1940) until transferred here.
The range officer's home is in Gunt-
orsville, Ala., and he was a member of
the Alabama Legislature at the time he
was called to active duty in the Army.
FIRST LIEUTENANT BURKHART
First Lieutenant John A. Burkhart,
Personnel Officer here since January,
1942, is a veteran of more than 19
years of service in the Army, a for-
mer enlisted man, and a top-notch of-
Enlisting in the Army in 1917, Lt.
Burkhart served throughout the war and
re-enlisted in ~'May, 1919. Since that
time he has been in the Cavalry, In-
fantry, .rine Corps, Field Artillery,
and Air Corps. In fact, he has been
in every branch of our armed forces-
except the Navy and Coast Guard.
He was a member of the original sq-
uadron at Ft. Knox, Ky., which later
formeai the nucleus of our Armored For-
ces. Fro&-' 1935 to 1941, the Personnel
Officer w'as a sergeant instructor in
the Fiel Artillery. He was commis-
sioned in Jan., 1941, and six months
later was sent to the Adjutant Gener-
al's School, Washington, D. C.
It is the responsibility of Lt. BUrk-
hart to straighten out the many tan-
gles that are constantly arising in
the life of "John Baloney," as he
terms the "average soldier."
Passing on requests for transfers,
selecting men to go to various schools
and securing personnel with which to
activate new squadrons, are only a few
of the multitude of jobs performed by
ihen off duty, the lieutenant can be
found making out personnel records for
his latest catch of fish.

Miss Ellen Brodnax
arrived on Thursday
from "Deep in the
9 Y Heart of Texas" ,
(Mexia, Texas, to
j be exact) and be-
S'scamee the bride of
SLt. Wilford L. St-
Sj/ app, (also a true
Texan) at a ceremony in the Post Cha-
pel at High Noon, Friday, June 12,
1942. Lt. Stapp said that Lt. Russo,
(Lt. Stapp's "boss") has never done
him a greater favor than when he gave
his bride away.
Both Lt. Stapp and his wife attended
the University of---- (yep, you guessed
it) Texas ...Here's wishing Stapp and
Ellen just lots of happiness and we
hope that "Sunny Florida" will not
prove too poor a substitute for the
Lone Star State....Now that Lt. Stapp
has deserted the bachelor fold, we ex-
pects Lt. Hutchison to soon followit
his footsteps...Lt. Tannen boasts that
he is the proud possessor of the most
beautiful moustache on the Field--won-
der if he's seen the one being sported
by one of the Dutch Officers, which
* reminds me of the "Bicycle Built for
Two" days...'Tis a race between Chap-
lain McClelland and Chaplain Wilson to
see who can do the most marrying...Lt.
Kopach haunts our local Post Office,
"sweating out", I suppose, a letter
from the one who counts...Post Head-
quarters is glad to see Col. Hyndman
back at his old desk...and, vat the
same time, the Air Base Group should
consider themselves fortunate that Ma-
jor "Slick" Clarvoe is with them again.
...The entire Post is proud of former
Master Sergeant Norval Rhodes who has
been commissioned asrSecond Lieutenant
...Congratulations to Captain Nelson
and 1st Lt. Slater, two of our Sub-
Depot Officers recently promoted, it
should be a rather pleasant surprise
for Lt. Slater when he returns from
his leave...Heartiest congratulations
also go to Major Newman, of the Dept.
of Training, on his promotion.
One of the most puzzling questions
in recent months has been the way in
which T/Sgt. Busby always seems to
have his yellow roadster full of beau-
tiful gals!...Sgt. Cabbage defines Pvt.
Van Dan as being a type of Bird that
doesn't fly...We're glad to see Sgt.
Sauls with those "Top Kick" stripes,
incidentally, have you ever noticed
how this boy gets around...he seems to
be all over the Field...Sgt. Harris
seems to have found what he wants out
at the Long Beach Casino...How about a
'' .ai' You" letter to the Atlanta,
Chamber of Commerce, Sgt.?...M/Sgt.
Postlewait has announced that he is
in the market for a shack-mate now
that the 11:00 P.M. curfew is on...He
requests that all applications be sub-
mitted to him immediately...Don't kid
"Kid" Truchan about his picture on the
Sports Page, he can still pack a mean
wallop...Incidentally, it's too bad
that Truchan, after passing all re-
quirements for O.C.S., was rejected
because of his youth...Why is it that
everyone tries to steal the paper-
weights on S/Sgt. Ted Williams' desk?
...Sgt. Payne is certainly having dif-
ficulty trying to keep a secretary on
his knee...Glad to see Francis Chur-
chill hack from furlough, but judging
from his looks, he must have had a
terrific time'....One of tthe -sdddest
stories tV ever come out of Tyndall
Field can be obtained from Cpl. Trom-
bitas or yours truly...(Anybody got a
"crying towel"?)...Then there's the
one about Pvt. Harold Strangman, Post
Office Clerk, who is so used to look-
ing up unknown addressees, that when
the cast of characters was shown on
the screen of the
Post Theatre the oth-
er night, he leaped
up with a cry of joy
and shouted, "I know
him, he's .in the
reports on Wednesday
night's Minstrel Show
rate it as "Topsl"

In order to avoid the awkward neces-
sity of using a squadron commander's
name to designate a squadron, each
organization's reporter is asked to
canvass his outfit to determine the
most popular nickname, which hence-
forth will be used in the "Target"
in lieu of the commanding officer's
name. The nickname must be approved
by either the First Sergeant or the
C.O. The squadron reporters will turn
in their nicknames along with the
original squadron numbers for use in
the next issue of the "Target".
Th 907th QUARTERMASTER
he QM welcomes Captain Melville E.
Noble, formerly of the N.Y.C. police
Force, who has recently been assigned
as rail transportation officer.
Now that we have our daily dozen in
the footwork dept., we see that Ole
Lee has developed foot trouble, hmmm,
could be...Is it really true that ter-
mites got the best of Kimberg's mus-
tache? Sgt. Lee is now like the old
woman who lived in a shoe, he's got so
many non-coms, he doesn't know what to
do. Lt. Samuels says there's not an
outfit on the Field that looks as good
as ours. Did you know that the com-
missary is soon to have a new large
butcher shop? And, we did win that
ball game the other night. See the
sports page for the retraction. --RKG.
first Sergeant Sam Ridulph is con-
fined to the hospital with a ,bad
throat. Here's hoping he has a speedy
recovery. Orchids to Cpl. Miller and
Pvt. Fisher for their efforts in mak-
ing the Ordnance ball team a success.
Items at Random: Tech. "Straw Boss"
Klenk and his Skeet Rangers. Best bi-
cycle rider on the Field is Lt. Hutch-
inson. Wonder why Tedh.Parks and Pvt.
Davis smile so much these days? And
ditto for our Lt. Campbell it must
be that funny little man with the bow
and arrow. --RLS.
LT. G. R. SCHROOK
The squadron wishes to extend a
hearty welcome to ist Lt. George R.
Schrock, our new commanding officer,
and to 2nd Lt. Ross Fryer, our new ad-
jutant, both of whom arrived here re-
cently from the RCAF. Also, a warm
"hello" to the new men who have joined
the outfit in the past few days.
The boys enjoyed their party last
Friday and are already looking forward
to the next one. It has been recom-
mended that Sgt. Harper take up the
more peaceful sport of boxing. Sgt.
Holman and Cpl. Higgison have suddenly
become interested in the grocery busi-
ness, can it be the stock or the
*TAT LT. G. F. BLACKWELL
VV ell, now that he has his stripes,
it must be official, so, congratula-
tions, First Sergeant Rahm. A very
hearty welcome to Lt. Blackwell, we
hope he'll be with us for a long time.
Wonder which Walter Chope prefers,
his title or his job? --WRD.
AWT LT. JOHN L. MOORES
welcome to your new command, Lt.
Moores! Our War Bond sales are really
booming and it's swell to see all of
the boys pitching in, doing their bit.
Something ought to be done about our
softball team, since we lost our star
pitcher they haven't been doing so
well. Meanwhile, much interest has
been shown in the coming Pool Tourna-
Lots of luck to Cpl. Gupton, who has
left for the Officer's Candidate Sch-
ool at Ft. Belvoir, Va. --SS
A PENCIL PUSHERS
although our outfit may differ from
the other squadrons in many respects,
this past week we experienced along
with most of the units on the Field a
change inC.Os. We certainly wish Lt.
Watson lots of luck on his new assign-
ment and at the same time, a warm wel-
come to Lt. Wesley H. Parks. --X

There were eleven knitters and six sewers at the Red Cross Monday. (Youcan
do better than that, girls.) Mrs. Maxwell is now distributing Army and Navy yarn
for not only sweaters, but scarfs, socks and wristlets---lots of fun and easy.
The sewers are busily working on layettes. Many more sewers are needed. Let's
have a bigger turnout next Monday. Last week a pair of scissors was reported
missing from the Red Cross sewing rooms, and a pair of Wiss scissors left in
their place. We would appreciate the return of the missing pair on Monday.

The boys on the 846th Q.M. baseball

Sunday, but experience and superior
batting power finally downed them as
the Panama City Giants won by a 10-4

of spirit and when these teams meet
again it may be a different story.

There is a much amazed yardbird walk-

It seems that one nite last week he
went up to the cashier of the Post Th-
eatre with two of his buddies and at
the instant that he handed over his
theatre coupon book, three exchange
tickets shot out of the ticket machine.
Much bewildered, he asked, "Suppose I
came up here with 12 buddies, would 13
tickets "pop" out automatically?"

A thing as beautiful as thee,
To me you are a thing divine,
I can't believe you're really mine.

You really take my breath away.

vWho is it sets my heart on fire--
It's Gwendolyn, my brand new tire!
They parted at the doorstep,
She whispered with a sigh--
"I'll be home tomorrow night,"
He answered, "So will I."

TYNDALL'S GUNNERY SCHOOL
Men who have been stationed at Tyn-
dall for only two or three months find
it difficult to believe that, had they
been here in February they would have
seen nothing but empty buildings where
today they find the busy, college-like
atmosphere of the Gunnery School.
At the time that Tyndall Field's
Gunnery School was being planned and
organized, there was very little that
could be used as a guide, for the two
other similar schools in the i.S. were
also in the embryonic stage. iHowever,
the best methods and ideas of the two
U. S. Schools were combined with the
training data obtained from the Bri-
tish Gunnery Schools and ;i's
first class of future gunners began
training in mid-February.
It was planned by the Director of
Training that tne men who showed the
most aptitude in this first class,
would be selected a,'i bc used as the
nucleus for an instructors group for
the classes that followed.
The instructors for the first class
were chosen from men on the Field who
had completed courses in armam.int sch-
ools and could be depended opon to
convey their knowledge in az intelli-
gent manner to their students.
The men who demonstrated tiat they
were capable of instri acting classes
were retained along with tnose men of
the first two classes wfo s.iowed in-
usual ability, and these men form th.e
present instructors staff.
The story behind the actual prepara-
tion for these courses is one of crea-
tive effort on the part of individual
officers and enlisted mor, who planned
and devised methods and devices for
training that could be easily grasped
and yet highly instructive. Practic-
ally all of the present written mater-
ial being used has been compounded by
the members of Tyndall Field's Depart-
ment of Training.
These men, who, under the command of
Colonel Maxwell and under the supervi-
sion of Lt. Col. Daniel Jenkins, have
contributed to the success of the
training program, can be justly proud
of their part in establishing Tyndall
Field's reputation as the nation's
leading gunnery school.
