GRANDMOTHER OF CAPT. COLIN KELLY
VISITS TYNDALL FIELD
An agile 81-year-old lady climbed a wing
of one of Tyndall's planes last Saturday
but couldn't quite decide to go flying.
She was Mrs. Parkhill Mays, of Monti-
cello, Fla., the grandmother of Captain
Colin Kelly of that west Florida Town.
He was a hero of the early days of the
war in the Philippine area, when he sank
a Japanese battleship, giving his life to

the Army film is for general consumption, it
is possible that many more than this number

The Question Is Asked:
Somebody ought to stop waro Last
December, the cost of this present
war was $63,000,000 a day accord-
ing to "Newsweek". And, the money
cost is the least cost. Poverty,
reFentments, and fears will come
and follow after war, which may
rake centuries to overcome. Truth,
fair-play, generosity, good-will,.
S culture, and civilization all have
to be set aside while wars are
fo. 1'ht Yes, surely somebody ought
to stop war with its ferocity,
treachery,' and hatred. But, who?
You and I would do it if we could..
wouldn't we? Just give us the pow-
S er and see. Then why doesn't God
stop war? But- wait a minute. If
you had the power of God put in
,our hands to use. just how would
,you Co about stopping war? By some
S giantic miracle you could take the
knowledge of the making of implem=
ents of war away from man. But
would all this really stop war for
; very long? The obvious answer is
..- no. To stop war, you would have
to change human nature. And, only
"Why Doesn't GOD Stop WAR?"
God could do that. The love of
God in our hearts. God doesn't
stop war because He doesn't want
to stop human freedom He puts
the responsibility for war upon us.
We ar'- fortunate h-ere in America.
Today, on the birthday of ournat-
ion, -we c0n think of those nation-
al assets wihicr are not mentioned
in the "stock market finals". Life,
liberty, and the pursuit of hap-
piness", and the freedom to worship
God These are values we should
prize anew in a world bowed under
the tyranny of dictators, and are
the greater riches for whichwe may
give God hearty thanks on this 4th
of July. They constitute America's
true wealth: Let us hunbly rejoice
in them and ri-ve thanlk.s Let us
worship od and thus preserve th-
ese as heritav-es for our children.

First Lieutenant Walter F. Silva, assistant post adjutant is an
officer with whom every Tyndall Field soldier is acquainted, as it
is his signature that makes official all special orders and bulle-
tins issued from post headquarters, which
affect the service man's life in a multi-
tude of ways.
However, he is far from being the grim
and hardboiled officer such as one might
be led to picture. He greets everyone
with a cheerful smile and like his super-
r ior, Captain Howell, rarely ever lets the
j / pressure of his many official duties get
the better of his good disposition.
Having served as commanding officer of
nine of the eleven original Panama City
squadrons, Lt. Silva understands the prob-
lems of Army administration from the stand-
point of the squadron as well as from that
S 4 of Headquarters.
A graduate of New York University, where

S Called to active duty in the Army in Feb-
g ruary, 1941, Lt. Silva was sent to Maxwell
At Field, assigned to the Panama City units,
and made adjutant of the Air Base Group.

TECHNICAL SERGEANT BOONE equipment and other supplies are distri-

from them. the greatest possible benefit is derived
Sergeant Boone is a native of Hazlehurst, Ga., and grew up at Webster, Florida. He
graduated from high school in 1936 and won a scholarship to Rollins College, which
he attended for a year. The sergeant then became a salesman in Baltimore, Maryland,
where he remained until he enlisted in the Army at Ft. Benning, Ga., in 1938.
After serving in the Field Artillery at Ft. Benning for eleven months, Sergeant
Boone transferred to the Air Corps at Maxwell Field, Ala. At that station he served
first as an airplane mechanic and later as a clerk in the message center, Southeast
Air Corps Training Center.
Entering supply work in 1940, Sergeant Boone was transferred in May 1941, to the
Panama City unit shortly after it was activated at Maxwell Field. As assistant S4,
he was transferred to Eglin Field, Fla., in September, 1941, and came to Tyndall the
