This little recipe came over the radio the other
day. Unfortunately another sitting up exercise program
from another station cut in. You know how those things
are We thought it was a good recipe so we are pas
ing it on to you. It will clarify itself, we are surv
if you put a little thought to it.
Stand errect with shoulders back, place a large
can of grated pineapple on left shoulder and inhale it
deeply. Extend arms straight forward holding one half
cup of water and two tablespoons of gelatine respect-
ively. Shake well, careful not to break egg yolks. By
this time water should be warm enough to soak head for
five minutes. Now remove skin, which should by now slip
off easily. Exhale with arms extended at sides on level
with shoulders, bend at hips and add milk slowly. Bend
head back and allow to simmer for fifteen minutes at
200 degrees Fahrenheit. This concludes today exercise
and makes either six hot servings or six cold servings
on crisp lettuce.
intimate Glimpses JackParks-
Captain Thomas B. Fowler, recently appointed Post Supply Officer (84) on Colonel
Maxwell's staff, is a native of Warm Springs, Ga., and holds a Bachelor of Science
degree from North Georgia College, Dahlonega, Ga., which at the time of his grad-
uation in 1924 was one of the nine class A military schools in the United States.
Following the completion of his college
course, Captain Fowler was for one year
principal of the Fairmont (Ga.) High Sch-
SEool, where he taught English and Latin.
i The Captain then took a position with
the Postal Telegraph Co., in Atlanta, Ga.,
'1 where he served from 1925 to 1933 first
in the Engineering Department and later
Sas Commercial Representative. From 1953
S' until called to active duty in the Army
on July 22, 1941, Captain Fowler was a
I F Commercial agent and public relations man
for Western Union in Atlanta and Birming-
Before assuming his present position on
the Headquarters Staff, the Captain was
supply officer for the Air Base Group and
I.iST, --- -commanding officer of the Materiel Squad-
During the time that he was squadron-
commander, Captain Fowler was noted for
the way in which he inspired his men with
complete confidence in his leadership.
He treated the soldier just as the ideal
father would treat his son----indulgent
when it was not harmful to the soldier,
and firm when firmness was demanded.
The Supply Officer is married aid has
S5 One of the key men in the communications
Office at Tyndall Field is Staff Sergeant
and chief operator Charles R. Allen, who
Sin civilian life was assistant manager of
the Broadway Theatre, Charlotte, N.C.
The duty of this office is to keep in
touch with transient aircraft and to send
times of departure and arrival to other stations. The Airways communications offices
also exchange information with themselves and transient aircraft as to any conditions
that may exist at particular airdromes.
Sgt. Allen is a native of Atlanta, Ga., and was educated at Tech High School and at
Harding High in Charlotte, N.C. He graduated in 1939 and served as assistant theatre
manager until he enlisted in the Army in February, 1941.
Upon enlisting in the Army, Allen was sent to Radio School at Scott Field, Ill.,
from which he graduated on September 21, 1941. He was then sent to Eglin Field where
he remained until transferred to Tyndall Field in December, 1941. Upon coming to
Tyndall he worked on the line until the communications office was set up.
Sergeant Allen's ability is demonstrated by the fact that he has risen from private
first class to staff sergeant since December.
