A.E.R. F U D


Warrant Officer Robert N. Lankford,
Chief Clerk of Tyndall Field, left here
on Thursday to assume similar duties
at an AAF Glider Schoolin Mississippi.
Mr. Lankford was transferred to this
Field on June 10, 1941, from Maxwell
Field, Alabama, where he served for a
time as first sergeantof the Headquar-
ters Squadron and in many other capa-
cities.
The former Chief Clerk was Tyndall's
first sergeant-major, holdingthat pos-
ition at the time of the Field's acti-
vation in the grade of a tech sergeant.
He was promoted to the grade of master
sergeant on February 23, 1942, and
appointed warrant officer on May 13,
1942.
Here at Tyndall Field, Mr. Lankford
will be long remembered for his repu-
tation as a superbly skilled adminis-
trator who thrived on efficiency and
the dissemination of interesting facts
and figures. He gave the impression
that he had everything at his finger
tips and it was conceded that very lit-
tle went on at Tyndall Field that Mr.
Lankford didn't know about.

THE NATION'S N0.1 "YARDBIRD" LEAVES
TYNDALL FIELD TO WIN HIS SILVER WINGS
Corporal William Grout, Tyndall's own
and the nation's No.l "Yardbird" left
us last Tuesday for Cadet Training. It
was mentioned last week that Billy was
far from being a "yardbird" in real
life, and the following short sketch
of his career thus far gives a fairly
good picture of his versatile abilit-
ies. (Please turn to "YARDBIRD SEZ")











WHY DO IT THE HARD WAY?


An airplane ad recently pictured a man trudging through the snow, carrying
heavy bags, and finding the going tough. He is looking up enviously at a plane
making its smooth way across the sky. It is not hard to see what was meant by
the captions "Why do it the Hard Way?"

There is a hard way too, in life meeting the difficulties of existence
without the help of God. That help is secured normally through prayer. Prayer
performs spiritual functions which closely parallel the task performed by the
airplane motor. Like the high-powered engines in a plane, prayers

1. SUSTAINS us, giving us the necessary lift to keep us from sinking into
discouragement.
2. PROPELS us, giving us the energy to keep going in the midst of difficul-
ties.
3. CARRIES us over life's problems, not removing them, but giving us the
strength to conquer them.

When we live without God, we live the HARD WAY. And that's just not common
sense. Prayer is the most practical force in human life.
Chaplain Edward G. Finnerty


AND LAUGH!
"Go build of your worries a strong-box,
Have every part strengthened with care;
When as strong as your efforts can make it,
Corral all your troubles right there.
Store in it all thoughts of failure
And each bitter cup that you quaff,
Lock all your heartaches within it,
Then---
sit on the lid---
and---LAUGH!"

TYNDALL TOPICS


You can still look into the sergeant-
major's office at Post Headquarters
and see a thinning crop of hair on the
head of the sergeant-major, and there
is still a pretty husky guy sitting
behind his desk- and he too, is a na-
tive of Virginia -but the man who first
sat behind that desk has left Tyndall
Field.
Enlisted men and officers were asked
to express an opinion- "...a real sol-
dier, a gentleman...his memory for de-
tails and Army Regulations is remark-
able...he must be well read because he
has a workir:g knowledge of almost every
subject under the sun...he made few
friends and lost less...his consistent
efficiency ranked above his amazing
memory..."
"His part in the organization and
administration of Tyndall Field cannot
be overestimated or overemphasized....
a crackerjack man, a man whose ability
will ever command the admiration and
respect of those fortunate enough to
work for him." -that's how we feel
about the man who left Tyndall Field.

To those who are slow in recognizing
the benefits of married life, we point
out that Pfc. Charles Vickers, a for-
mer cut-up, has, since his recent mar-
riage, settled down to hard work.


Sports activities here at Tyndall
have been practically non-existent for
the past few weeks due to the various
changes in personnel that took place.
Of course this doesn't refer to the
physical training program of the Stu-
dent Detachment, which daily puts the
student gunners through their limber-
ing up and toughening exercises.
However, with the announcement that
Lt. H. B. Lawson has been appointed
Post A & R Officer, we expect a comp-
lete athletic and recreation program
to get under way very shortly.
We discovered that Lt. Lawson has
been professionally trained for this
type of work and he has already given
us a hint as to what he plans to do.
Blank forms are on their way for dis-
tribution to every man on the Field to
fill out, listing his abilities and
desires in the way of athletics and
recreation. With the proper coopera-
tion from the men, we know that Lt.
Lawson will be able to initiate and
maintain the extensive program that he
has planned.

Panama City's WDLP has scheduled an
evening program for the observance of
Labor Day. The Army will be represent-
ed on this program by Captain Ammon
McClellan, who will speak at 8s05 P.M.







TALK ABOUT TOUQI L It
Colonel Maxwell received a letter
from Lt. Harrison M. Harp, Jr., our
former Assistant Poet Exchange Officer,
after his arrival at Fort Myers. He
first tells of having a blowout near
Apalachicola. He then goes on to says
"I seem to have been the close com-
panion of hard luck on this trip, any-
way, I had only gone about twenty
miles from Tallahassee when the wheel
on which I had had the blowout, ran
off. Then, about ten miles farther, a
wheel ran off of my trailer.
In jacking up the trailer, the jack
broke and the block I had placed under
the frame wasn't set right and it went
up through the floor of my trailer.
Other than the few above mentioned in-
cidents, the trip was unzOentfulS"

"Brownie" now stationed at Buckingham

"Well, this is a large plmce and
no fooling. They say this will be the
second largest gunnery school in the
country? All the barracks are com-
pleted. They sleep from thirtyto for-

first Sergeant Stitt came back from
furlough and is looking better than
ever. He and the Mrs. had a most en-
joyable time while back in Chicago.
Thanks from the entire squadron go
to Pfc. Warren Johnson and Pvts. Rum-
ble and Reents for the swell job they
did in painting our day room. The new
chrome furniture and the AAF insignia
painted on the floor give the day room
a very attractive appearance.
Pvts. Joe Fishbain and Francis Gar-
ceau send regards from Fort Myers to
all the boys. Also from that station
* comes word that Joe Berberian is still
haunting the gang with his "gitar".
Mrs. Bruno came down from New Jersey
to see her son lastweek. Unfortunate-
ly Pvt. Jalard Bruno had left for Fort
Myers the day before her arrival. How-
ever, Mrs. Bruno didn't let that stop
her from accomplishing her mission and
she immediately left here for Fort My-
ers where Pvt. Bruno welcomed her with
open arms.
Pvt. Walter Grombacher, Tyndall's

W "FINANCE FANFARE"
T hen some of the Finance men awoke
Sunday morning after counting that gre-
en stuff for the payroll the night be-
fore, they thought they had money
blindness. Our front yard was covered
with green. It turned out to be Pfc.
Joe Angeletti's grass seed sprouting
up.
T/Sgt. Johnny Farr, Sgt. Joe Hanak
and Pvt. Tom Astle are shakingthe Tyn-
dall Field sand from their shoes, and
are preparing to step around in that
good old Maxwell Field red clay for
several weeks.
"Master carpentersI", snorted Sgt.
Herb Anderson after reading our column
last week, "they ain't nothing but
wood butchers."
-Pvt. Felix Leon


"MEDICWOES"
Sgt. Walter Kulas is the staunch sup-
porter of the title bestowed on our
column. He is firmly convinced that
the unit supply requires the aid of a
chaplain because he has more troubles
than business.
We feel like recent G.I. brides as
we prepare to move into a new office.
The invisible wall between the 1st Ser-
geant's Office and the medical supply
has become a reality.
The comment has been made that the
food is so good at our mess that "Joe's
Place" across the street has gone out
of business. -Sgt. Wm. Volk

A"THE CHAMPIONS"
ter sweating since early January,
Pfc. Ashley Bean's hopes finally came
true. We're all sorry to lose him but
we know that he'll make good in the-
"Flying Cadets".
Sgt. McNeil's elation over the girls
from S.C. certainly was obvious last
week, and rightly so, judging from the
information I have.
A good example of all out effort for
the War is being set by Sgt. Roberts,
who, after working all night as dispat-
cher, drives a load of gunnery students
out to the range in the A.M.
Many of the men on the Post recog-
nize a QM man by our familiar "Buddy".
A little of that same spirit in other
squadrons would be a good thing.

"REDBIRDS'" FLEET MESSENGER SERVICE
OPERATED BY FORMER 6-DAY BICYCLE RIDER
We first met Vincent Del Ponte in
the Post Hospital where, we understand,
he was recuperating from nervousness
due to riding his squadron's bicycle.
Of course this may not have been true,
but when we discovered that Vincent
was a former professional bike rider,
it was easy to believe that pedalling
one of our "greased lightning" G.I.
bicycles had proven too much for him.
His commanding officer, Lt. Francis
Keim, then called our attention to him
by hinting that Pvt. Del Ponte was the
reason why the "REDBIRDS'" messages
got around so quickly. (Vincent is.the
squadron orderly and also their "TAR-
GFT" reporter).
Anyhow, we finally caught up with
the "Providence Flash" and slowed him
down long enough to get a few pertinent
facts about him. Pvt. Del Ponte is a
native of Providence, Rhode Island and
first entered the field of bike racing
at the age of 16.
In 1928 he forsook amateur competi-
tion and came down to New York City's
then famous Veledrome to take part in
the American Motor Pace Championships.
Previous to this, Vincent had won the
New England Sprint Championship for
five consecutive years and the New Eng-
land All Around Championship in 1926
and 1927.
After his first appearance at the
Veledrome, Vincent was offered chance
to go on to Detroit and ride there as
a member of a six-day bike team. From
then on he was in "big time" racing
until 1936 when the gate receipts fail-
ed to cover expenses.
Incidentally, those gate receipts
sometimes totalled slightly more than
hay- and although the average was much
less, Vincent once received $1800 as
his cut for one night of racing.
He saved quite a bit of his earnings
and invested them in a wholesale fruit
and vegetable business in Providence.
He was inducted into the service on
May 4th of this year.
