Major General Barton K. Yount, comr-
manding general of the AAF Training
Command, visited Tyndall Field Monday,
and was accompanied by Colonel Wo .o
Welsh, commanding officer, SEAAFTCo
The band, a guard of honor, and mem-
bers of Col. Mlaxwell's staff were on
hand to greet the General, and he was
honored at a noon luncheon at the Of-
ficers' Club.
General Yount spent the afternoon
touring the field and visiting the
ranges with Colonel .a::'ello

To Staff Sergeant Charles V. Kolt,
of the Post Signal Corps, goes credit
for a highly practical plan which may
prove to be a boon to all service men,
and at the same time, aTd the nation
in solving its perplexing passenger
transportation problem. S/Sgt. Kolt's
plan calls for the establishment of a
nation-wide system of civilian car
owners giving rides to soldiers under
the sponsorship of the USO.
The planwon quick approval from Col-
onel Maxwell, and with the aid of the
local USO Director, Thomas Oliver,
preliminary action on the scheme got
under way last Thursday.
Briefly, the plan calls for setting
up a travel bureau at each USO Service
Center throughout the nation. Civil-
ians planning cross-country auto hops
would list their destinations and time
of departure, and the USO then would
contact service men planning trips
Benefits of the plan were summarized
ast (1) Elimination of hitch-hiking ;
(2) It would greatly relieve the con-
gestion of all passenger transporta-
tion facilities; (3) It would save
time and money for soldiers, allowing
them to go home more often and to send
more money to dependents; and (4) It
would serve to better acquaint the
civilian population and ve military
personnel with each others' problems
It is doubtful whether the plan can
be put into effect before the fall9
but the local USO is now accepting ap-
plications for, and offers of, rides,
carrying out the scheme on their own
initiative as a special service.


"I am one of the richest men who ever lived. I travel a good deal and I
have a home wherever I happen to stop. All are kept immaculate and ready for
me. Hundreds of servants maintain these shelters for me even when I am far away.
Hundreds of chefs are preparing menus for me, no matter where I am; for I might
drop by at any time.
Dozens and dozens of designers, buyers, tailors, and fitters work night and
day to fashion the clothes I wear.
I own thousands of acres that have been turned into parks and golf courses
and playgrounds and hunting and fishing preserves. Wide sandy beaches I own in
Maine and New York and Jersey and Florida and California. Most of them I have
never seen but I know they will be ready for me when I arrive.
I own a baseball team, and fight for it, and defend it against all hostile
fans. I own a university, and a great little football eleven, and the finest
coach in athletics.
I hire the greatest comedians in the world. The big names of Broadway and
Hollywood are on my payroll.
I own libraries, one in every city and town. Millions of books are mine.
I own hospitals and clinics and laboratories. I own dozens of great orchestras
and bands. Miles and miles of picture galleries are mine. I have an interest
in chemical workrooms, in munitions factories, in engineering projects to create
cheap electric power, in transportation, in streamlined trains, the fastest and
most comfortable trains on earth. I have an interest in the silver fleets that
cross American skies.
No man was ever so blessed by God with material abundance or wealth of
spirit. No man was ever so surrounded with tangible and intangible comforts,
opportunities, and benedictions.
And, despite my wealth it costs me little to live.
You don't have to be a financial genius to be as rich as I am. You don't
need a lot of money to live as fully as I live. You have only to work a few
hours a day, as I do, to enjoy riches. In this wonderful country of God's mak-
ing, any average American can call himself the prince of millionaires. He has
only to take inventory of his possessions as I have done.
Money? I haven't much of it. Yet still because I am the average American,
I am as rich as any man who ever lived."

intimate Glimpses r Porks

Major Andrew P. Lerche, youthful Post Operations Officer at Tyndall Field, is a
native of Albany, N.Y., and a graduate of Rennsselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy,
N.Y., from which institution he received a degree in mechanical engineering in the
class of 1931. Following his graduation, Major Lerche enlisted in the Engineering
SCorps and served as a private in the Pan-
ama Canal Zone for a year.
Early in 1933, the Operations Officer
S was sent to Randolph Field, Texas, for
flight training. At that time two years
Sof training was required before a cadet
received his wings, and Major Lerche was
commissioned in March, 1935.
Upon completing his flight training, the
Major left the Army for a year and worked
as a mechanical engineer at Langley Field,
Va. In July of 1933, he returned to Ran-
dolph Field as a basic flying instructor.
After taking a very stringent competi-
tive examination, Major Lerche won a com-
mission in the Corps of Engineers in 1938,
/ and served nine months on troop duty on
the Mexican border near Laredo, Texas.
In March, 1939, the Major returned to
SRandolph Field as instructor and remained
there in that capacity until transferred
to the Basic Flying School, Maxwell Field,
Ala., in 1940 as Assistant Training Squad-
ron Commander.

Tyndall Field has a private among its
personnel who is entitled to wear seven
,--- ,- stars on his service stripe in recognition
Sfor his having participated in seven major
: battles of the first World War.
N He is Private William H. Newsom, who was
a member of a machine gun battalion in the
I 5th Division during the War. He partici-
--" pated in seven, or practically all, of the
major battles of that conflict in which the United States took part in. Private
Newsom was seriously wounded in battle and was awarded the purple heart for merit-
orious service. There are very few veterans in the United States who saw as much of
the struggle that unseated the Kaiser as did Newsom; and a man who can wear a seven-
star service bar is almost as scarce as a four-star general. He was discharged.at
the end of the war as a first sergeant, but preferred to re-enter the service re-
cently as a private.
Private Newsom probably saw as many German soldiers in action as any other man who
participated in the war, and he definitely does not believe that the modern German
soldier is a superman. On the contrary, he js firmly convinced that with proper
preparation the United States Army can defeat the Nazi legions. However, he does
not believe that the war will be a short one and is of the opinion that a hard
struggle lies ahead for the American people.
An instructor on the skeet range, Pvt. Newsom is an expert rifleman and operated
an athletic club at Hillsboro, Ohio, before he enlisted in the Army recently.

remarked that she seen her duty to her country and she done it. At Mrs. Samuel's

Mrs. Waugh says that frankly she wouldn't care to have an enlargement. Mrs. Max-

forced to the conclusion that she must look like that. Mrs. McClelland's verdict
was that her picture was good! -much better than hMr pass pictures Mrs. Howell
just thought it was too hot to think, but finally added, "It was awful". Mrs.

Soldiers Suspect Sabofaoe as Seclusion Ceases

Local F.B.I. agents have quietly dropped the investigation of charges of
sabotage in the Post Hospital despite the protestations of the fifteen Tyndall
men who were recently "victimized" by a case of German Measles. Details of the.
charges have not as yet been made public and reliable sources believe that the
true facts may never be disclosed because the chief culprit, Pvt. Owen Ernest,
has sworn that he will never reveal how he "broke out" with a case of the German
The "TARGET", which has specialized in "spot news" reporting now claims La-
other great scoop on all other leading newspapers of the country with a first
< hand account of what went on behind the scenes of Ward #4 during the 21 days of
quarantine. The "TARGET" which up to now has had to remain silent on the sit-
uation in deference to the investigation by the various authorities, can now
reveal that it was prepared for just such an emergency as this and had dispatched
one of its reporters to Ward #4 where he was admitted just a few seconds before
the twenty-one day quarantine was declared. Reporter Kore Porral naow .is ex-
actly what happened in his own words:
"It was at 2:00 P.M. on July 1st when it was discovered that Pvt. Owen Er-
nest had contracted the German Measles. Word spread like wildfire all around the
ward--for thirty minutes confusion reigned. Words are incapable of describing the
scene Men rushed around in G.I. pajamas questioning one another about the
length of a Measle quarantine. Some just sat up in their beds with a far away
look in their eyes....already scheming on what books to read during the ensuing
three weeks. When order was restored by the authorities (Major Medof and Lt.
Markowitz), and it was officially announced that the men were under quarantine,
the only voices heard were those of the three or four man who were to be released
Lne following morning. Because of the distance, it was impossible to tell whether
th, .en were happy or sad...but naturally no one would admit that they were
,.y.oning but burnt up over the situation. Eventually the excitement ebbed and
like good soldiers, the boys went back to their magazines, radios and crossword
The days passed slowly, but not too slowly, with the chief diversions being
"bull sessions", radio programs, chinese checkers, letter writing, and Pinochle.
The future .generations of America are going to be the losers because a stenogra-
* pher was not present to jot down the contents of the fierce discussions that
took place daily. A faint idea of just how profound these debates were, may be
obtained from the fact that the subjects discussed ranged from "The value of know-
ing Latin in the 20th Century" to "How short shall skirts be worn in 1945".
The hours between "lights out" and slumbertime were spent in quizzing the
guy three beds down to your left. This after-dark quizzing was quite popular un-
til one of the boys fell asleep and was just about to answer the $64.00 question
in his dreams, when he was awakened by a heated discussion astowho is the great-
er second baseman, Joe Gordon of the Yanks or Bobby Doerr of the Boston Red Sox.
After that incident, and the complimentary names that were exchanged were forgot-
ten, th! quizzing was left to Phil Baker and his "not for a year, not for a life-
time, etc.".
This little interlude in the tedious task of winning a war will probably be
long remembered by those fortunates who had the presence of mind to stay in the
ward long enough to become subject to the quarantine. And in all probability,
the most pleasant memory that these men will take with them are those precious
hand-holding moments with Miss Curry at pulse-taking time. (Twice daily) -.
Curry, as nurse of ward 4, is given an even chance of surviving the ordeal.
"ry so often she had to be relieved by Miss Skinner, who would very tpt' ,
jull her rank on the boys when they started to get out of hand.

The Tyndall Tornadoes teed off with
a mighty blast last Thursday against
the E1gin Field nine. Before three
men were out in the first inning, the
Tornadoes had pushed across four run
on four hits to take a lead that was
never relinquished as the Tyndall men
went on to win by a score of 7-6.
This victory brought the Tornadoes'
average upto the .500 mark. Previoue-
ly, they had split a set of games with
the Blountatown nine and bowed to a
superior Napier Field team.
In Thursday's game, after the Torna-
does scored their four runs in the
first, the Eglineers oame close to
tying up matters as they came through
with 3 runs in their half of the inn-
The Tyndall men collected a total of
11 hits, with Edwards, iF, banging out
two triples and Looke, IB polling out
a pair of doubles. Donaway turned in
a well pitched ball game, allowing the
Eglin men 9 scattered hits and strik-
ing out 6.

This past week saw the Medical men
take on the boys from Lt. Schrook's
outfit and the Ordnance boys battle it
out with the 907 Quartermaster's team.
The Q.M. sluggers are intent on an-
nexing the title so that they can
share the spotlight with their bowling
team which captured the league crown
last fall. That they aren't kidding'
around is obvious after observing that
they handed the Ordnance men a 14-0
In the other battle, Lt. Sohrock's
softballers kept in the running when
they nosed out a scrappy Medico squad
by the score of 3-1.
Beginning Wednesday evening, these
two outfits will play a "best out of
three" series with the winners being
officially designated as Post Champs.
It's quite fitting that these two
teams should be fighting it out for
