"War Backgrounds of Africa" is to be
the subject of a lecture by Mr. A. Re
Dayton when he speaks at Tyndall Field
on Friday. Mr. Dayton's lecture is
part of the Army's Orientation Course
and all military personnel are request-
ed to attend the talk.
Pending fair weather, the lecture
will be held at the Boxing Ring area
in the rear of Mess Hall #1. Further
details will appear in the daily bul-
Mr. Dayton is a native-born American
citizen (third generation). Prior to
1921, when as a mere youngster he work-
ed his way around the world through
forty-two countries, he served with
the American Army of Occupation in
During the next eighteen years, Mr.
Dayton devoted his time to foreign tra-
de and world travel. He became pr-esi-
dent of "The Export Corporation" in
New York and Los Angeles. He lived
abroad for nine years and has come to
be recognized as an authority on the
economic and political conditions, tbe
habits, customs, business interests,
folk-lore, languages, life and peoples
of South America, British and Portugese
Bast Africa, the Congo, Uganda, the
Sudan, Egypt, Palestine, India and the
U.8. ABM AIR FORCES NEEDS SPECIALISTS
An estimated 100,000 skilled men are
urgently needed by the Army Air Forces
for immediate duty. Tyndall Field will
accept enlistments of qualified men who
desire to be stationed in this area.
A MARINE TELLS YOU
"Tell it to the Marines"---that derisive saying is being turned around and a
Marine is telling you, soldier. Private Thomas Sudden, U.S. Marine Corps, in a
letter to a San Diego paper, comments, "The man who is too dumb to give a thought
to God is too dumb to be a good soldier."
To those who say that "men without religion make the best soldiers", Private
Sudden retorts with an irreverent "Phooey"! They advance as the reason for their
opinion that "irreligious men pack a 'don't care' spirit which turns out to be a
valuable asset under fire." "On the contrary", the Marine exclaims, "that atti-
tude has more of the sneak-earmarks of the "Rising Sun" than it does of the
glorious traditions of "The Star Spangled Banner."
"When I go into battle I'd rather be alongside a buddy who has more fear of
God and less of men and bullets. The man who is too dumb to give a thought to
God is too dumb to be a good soldier. At least, the American kind of soldier."
Private Sudden goes on to tell of those heroes of World War I who were not
afraid, either of the enemy of afraid to be Christians. They fought gloriously,
giving up or risking their lives at every moment. We need not remind you further
of their deeds. The pages of history are alive with them---of Joyce Kilmer and
Father Duffy of the "Fighting 69th", of Sergeant York---brave, fearless before
danger, but humble before God.
"OUR NATION'S PRAYER" by Reverend Francis C. Young
"Oh, Lord, a sacred peace we craves For this, with all our leaders brave we
pray that Thy Almighty Hand will guard and guide our wondrous land. We'll melt
with love the swords of men to make of them the noblest pen. With this, Dear God,
our hope and aid, let us enshrine Old Glory's fame. For us our Fathers died by
sword, and loved one's spent their lives, Oh Lord. Give us unselfish hearts like
theirs to prove our worth as loyal heirs. Direct our thoughts to holy deeds, let
love abide among the creeds. Pray, keep us in Thy watchful care. We seek, dear
Lord, Thy help in prayer. Amen."

With the Jewish Holidays approaching,
the following takes its place as the

conversation was overheard by one of
our officers while awaiting his turn at
the telephone booth at the Marie Hotels

"King's Row" is scheduled to be shown
at the Post Theatre on Thursday. Most
of you are well acquainted with the
fact thaL this is quite a lengthy pic-
ture- but have no fear, fellas, you
can leave the pillows on your cots for
this performance- Captain Wiseman has
promised free midnite shows to all
ranks above Master Sergeant and Colonel
if the Post Theatre doesn't have new
comfortable seats installed by Thurs-
And while on the subject of improve-
ments, we've been keeping mum on the
activity dowi at the old cafeteria,
but the time has come now and all can
be told. Supply sergeants will no
longer accept your gripes about the
dry cleaning job on your clothes. The
"middle man" has finally been elimina-
tedt From now on your dry cleaning
gripes will be taken directly to those
who clean your clothes. We suspect
that there are hundreds of us on the
field who have been waiting for just
such an opportunity, and it is rumored
that the new dry cleaning plant which
opens Monday has been constructed for
those two reasons- to give us quicker
and better service, and to handle our
The Aircraft Recognition staff of the

We thought we might be able to get
away without mentioning anything about
the transfer of officer insignias from
the shoulder to the collar, but I guess
we aren't. The whole affair has been
shrouded in mystery, and we're still
not convinced that someone in Washing-
ton isn't playing a practical joke.
Even the circumstances under which
the transfer was initiated on this post
is cause for wonderment. We have it
on good authority that Captain Thomas
Howell, the Post Adjutant, walked into
Colonel Maxwell's office one morning
and was greeted with a few "choice
words" about being "out of uniform"--
after that, if you were an officer, it
was only a question of how soon you
met Captain Howell before you too, wore
your insignia on your collar. Speak-
ing for the enlisted men, it has only
made us more conscious of the starch
content of an officer's collar.
IT HAPPENED IN THE ARMY
If you ever have been inclined to
pity the soldier who has to hike long
stretches, you can save your sympathy.
For these men in khaki can take it. A
field artillery outfit at a camp in
the Northeast went on a fourteen mile
hike, ran the obstacle course, prac-
ticed throwing hand grenades, had bay-
onet practice, went swimming, practiced
Ju-Jitsu, cleaned rifles and stood
rifle inspection, allin one day. That
night Private Louis Longval requested
a pass. The energetic soldier walked
six miles to a nearby town, spent the
evening dancing and walked six miles
back to camp. What a mant
Camp Callan, California, boasts the
most contented soldier in the Army.
As proof they offer his record. This
month Sergeant Graham W. Greer reques-
ted and received his first furlough
WIN OR LOSE
The men at Scott Field, Illinois,
are so determined to win the big fight
they have on their hands that the
spirit of fight-to-the-finish carries
over even into their inter-squadron
athletics. In one of the weekly box-
ing bouts, Privates Charles Shaffer
and Ted Cuellar fought for two rounds
on even terms. Each one answered the
third bell with the idea of a quick KO
in mind. They both let loose with
simultaneous haymakers and sent each
other sprawling. They each scored a
knockout. But the question remains
At Camp Shelby, Mississippi, the
kitchen police keep the mess hall ring-
ing with phrases like "Let me peel the
potatoes, Sarge" and "Oh, I'll see
that the dishes are washed." No, it
is not a dream. But there is a reason.
The Quartermaster Detachment at Shelby
has just acquired an electric potato
peeler and an electric dishwasher.
It's a K.P.'s picture of heaven
SMOOTH AS GLASS
Armored Division officers at Fort
Benning, Georgia, found a new way to
keep things running smoothly. They
offered a 24-hour pass for the highest
efficiency in care and maintenance of
vehicles. And the soldiers really
went to town. The inspection officer
reports that in one case the engine
purred so quietly he had to lift the
hood to make sure it was runningI
When the movie star, Carole Landis,
visited Fort Bliss, Texas, she took
the camp by storm. On a tour of the
camp Miss Landis saw a bsrgeant carry-
ing his newly acquired pet a tiny
puppy, not yet named. The star was
delighted with the little dog and
stopped to admire it. "What is that
adorable little things name?" she
asked. The sergeant hadn't been in
the Army six months for nothing. He
gave Miss Landis his most diplomatic
smile and replied, "Carole, of course'."
Under cover of darkness on a recent
night watch, an officer at Camp Bark-
eley, Texas, decided to test the re-
action of the guard. He surprised him
from the rear and made a pass at the
guard's rifle. A split second later,
the officer had his shoulder blades
against the side of the sentry box and
the point of a detached bayonet uncom-
fortably pressed to his midsection.
It was a breath-taking experience.
But now that officer knows he is well
NARY A WRINKLE
We are all aware that many soldiers
wear their uniforms like a million
dollars. But there is one fighting
man at Fort Meade, Maryland, who really
carries this idea to an extreme. Cor-
poral Gene Kelner saw this certain
soldier call for his laundry. The
Corporal couldn't believe his eyes.
The uniform the soldier received was
his blue denims. He had just had his
fatigues dry cleaned!
GENERAL (MESS HALL) "ORDERS"
