"NUTS TO THE AXIS!"- CONTEST THEME


Colonel Robert Robinson, (seated),
Finance Officer of the SEAAFTC, visit-
ed Tyndall Field last week to discuss
final plans for the opening of a Dis-
bursing Office here. Shown with the
Colonel areas Lt. Emory Shofner, Post
Finance Officer, (right); and Lt. Na-
than Howard, Assistant Post Finance
Officer.
It is believed that the new finance
unit will be opened early in November,
at which time Tyndall Field will be-
S come the fourth Post in the SEAAFTC to
have a Disbursing Office.

TYNDALL FIELD HIRE FIRST WOMAN DRIVE
Combating the manpower shortage with
hatrvr' mczns avvilbl"6, Tyndall Field
hired its first woman vehicle driver
and announced that they will accept
many more applications from women for
similar jobs.
Hired after passing the physical and
driving examinations required for qual-
ifying, was Mrs. Volma Savage Forehand,
a 28 year-old mother of an 11 year-old
son*


Hitting the Axis where it hurts----
that's the aim of the "Nuts to the Ax-
is" contest now being sponsored by
"YANI", the official Army Newspaper.
The contest, which is open to ser-
vicemen only, calls for short, hard-
hitting messages to Hitler, Mussolini
or Tojo. Winning messages will be
broadcast to all parts of the world
through the cooperation of the Office
of War Information.
To enter their "Nuts to the Axis"
messages, soldiers must use a coupon
printed in "YANK", and they must write
on one of six subjects as follows,
1. "I'll Be Seein' Your"
2. "Here's What I'm Fighting For"
3. "My Father Did It In 1918"
4. "Doolittle Was Only The Beginning"
5. "If I Had You in My Squad"
6. "I've Got a Better Idea Here It
Is" (The soldier's own subject)
Messages may be any length up to 200
words, and with the exception of ous-
sing or obscene language, no holds bar-
red. This is the average yardbird's
chance to tell the Axis big shots what
he thinks of them
Not only will the most original
blasts at Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo
be broadcast, but winners will receive
free, a six-month subscription to the
"YANK". Names of all winners and some
of the winning messages will be print-
ed in the Army Newspaper.
All entries must be postmarked on or
before midnight, December 10, 1942,
and winning messages will be broadcast
as soon after that date as possible.
Soldiers, sailors and marines all
over the world are urged to use this
opportunity to tell the Axis what Unc-
le Sam's men are thinking these days.











WERE YOU ROBBED?
In this generation of skepticism and cynicism it became a fashion to debunk
the great personalities of history. Many men imagined themselves to be of
superior intelligence if they,dragged someone down off the pedestal where previous
generations had placed them. They, in their childish way, considered themselves
better informed than the contemporaries---the men and women who witnessed the
greatness of venerated persons. And so books come out debunking George Washington,
Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin and many other men of outstanding achievements.
If this trend continues, you can be certain that some day General MacArthur's
greatness will also be debunked.

The personality of Christ was not left untouched by these arrogant minds.
They could not deny the nobility of His Teachings, because they are recorded; so
they denied His Divinity, and thereby denied Him authority to command.

They denied Christ the Divine authority to define the meaning of, and
authority to command all men to keep justice, honesty, decency, regard for the
rights of others, etc. in all human relationships. The result of this is a
horrible cGunlniQn in human relations. And now the Nazis, the Japs and their like
assumed the authority to define those vital human relationships as it suits them
best, and command others by force to accept them. Yes, these debunkers have
ROBBED THE WORLD of an inexpensive, unbloody and tearless way to attain and keep
peace in the world.

They attacked Christianity in the name of progress and freedom. But instead
of progress, we are retrogresing to old fashioned paganism; instead of freedom,
the world is becoming more and more dictatorial minded.

They robbed some men of their belief in eternal life. And what did they
give them in its place? ONLY DREADFUL UNCERTAINTY.

They robbed some men of the only intelligent goal of human existence--- 0
HEAVEN. And what did Lhey give them in its place? ONLY UNINTELLIGENT AIMLESSNESS.

TYHNTLL TOPICS


foday we take up the case of the Med-
ical Detachment. We suppose that, what
is true of our Medical Detach;st is
true of all Medical DetachmentsA but at
the moment we are only interested in
the pill-rollers who are nearest our
hearts. Our association with the Tyn-
dall Field Medicoes has been b thing
but formal, so you can imagine c-- sur-
prise whonwe learned last week .. ., i
was not contsntment over at :r. rtion
hospital,
It all bsga when we decide, akke
a trip down to the hospital ar~ to de-
termine the cause of the Medicoejs re-
porter's failure to turn in bi. '*es"
for the "zTA T". First we e',-, -..red
the report-r, Sgt. Bill Volk, -. -ry
discretely let it be known th,;: .h did
not appreci t" the honor of hY- Tosi-
tion- us the first h :. -"'at

didn't exactly passb he Duck, but he
felt th'1 -' wasn't quite ca.'ie of
fulfill-:i r ~ 'ponsibilitya :?. -. ther-
ed soraebody else took over.
Hoping to zet at the bottom of things
as sore as ;?ssible, we sought out Lt.
Bailey, e ~ament C.O. Lt. Eit.y did
not mince : cdsa and told us w6 i. -not
done right" by the outfit. I. seams
that on aSt,.al recent oce~;. the


"xAKUaiu" nas unavolaao.y omittea ene
bulk of the Medicoes' news. This sort
of treatment, the boys suspected, was
just another example of how the Medi-
cal Department in general, .s being
treated by the rest of the Army. (Lt.
Bailey then went on to explain how the
Medical Detachments were always the
last oner to receive any recognition,
help, etc.).
The crowning blow, hc~"Tsr, came last
week when the "TARGET", again acciden-
tally, headed their nxws column as
"MEDICOWSE- instead of "MEDICWOES".
Sgt. Laubly, who had volunteered to
take over the reporting job, had us on
the phone early Tuesday morning and
chewed our ears off good and proper.
His final words were, "I know we've
been "beefing" quite a bit lately, but
don't you think that's going too far?"
Yes, we have to admit, accidentally
or not, this was too dich, and wo wish
to publicly apologize for our careless-
ness. AL-s we want the boys at the
hospital and dispensary to know that,
despite those horrible "shots", blood
typing jabs, vaccinations, lengthy
ward "visits" and such, and despite
whatever treatment other Medical De-
tachments at other Fields are receiv-
ing, WE LOVE YOU, FELLAS!!












S "BROWNIES"
gt. Cafmeyer has discovered a new way
to waken the boys in the morning. First
he turns on the lights in each room, waits
about ten minutes until everyone is utter-
ly confused, and then blows the 1st whis-
tle. By this time everybody is so wide-
awake, it's a simple matter to get them
all out for roll call.
We welcome the boys who have just join-
ed the squadron. You fellows have become
a part of a darn good outfit, and it
will be up to you to carry on the swell
record the boys before you have made.
A few of the squadrons on the field are
forming pool, ping-pong, chess and basket-
ball teams. It would be a swell idea if
we followed suit. If we could work up
some sort of a league this winter, for
these various sports, it would be a lot
of fun. There are many fellows inter-
ested in participating in these games
and if they will hand in their names to
me, I will try and get these various teams
organized. Either hand them in to the
orderly room on paper, naming the sport
you are interested in, or give them to me
in person. As soon as all the names are
in, we will conduct a tournament amongst
ourselves to find out the best men in each
sport. These men will make up the back-
bone of the teams whichwill represent the
"Brownies" in outside competition. If
there are too many for one sport, we will
probably form "A" and "B" teams. We want
* as many men in the squadron on these teams
as possible.
We received a letter from Pfc. Joe Gl -
ickman, now at Ft. Myers. He's a member
of the 716th there. He says all of the
old gang want to be remembered to "Youse
Guys". Joe's on the staff of the "Flexi-
gun", their weekly paper, which, by the
way, is a darn good sheet. Salutations
right back at you, Joel -Cpl. J. Freeman

S"RED BIRDS"
Vrs. K.G. Stitt, wife of our former lst
sErgcanL, bnu an rde .roacer oZ i.3
"TARGET", pens us from Des Moines, Iowa,
that, since her husband left the Field to
attend OCS at Miami Beach, she misses re-
ceiving the news of the Field. We will
remedy the situation by mailing a copy of
the "TARGET" to her every week. We still
enjoy receiving the books that Mrs. Stitt
kindly sends for our boys to read. While
on the subject, word comes from the Ser-


geant himself, saying that his waist line
is decreasing rapidly.
Orchids to Pvt. Cavallero for the way
in which he handles our mail. He cer-
tainly gets those tongue-twisting names
out in great fashion. The wear and tear
doesn't seem to have any effect on the Ca-
vallero.
Supply Sergeant Carl P. Juneau has been
visiting Tyndall's famed "Wishing Bridge"
AND wished that the day will come when
just one of the boys will take what he
hands them without saying it's too big or
too small.
Due credit must be given the boys work-
ing on our squadron's "line". The hours
and the work they put in is only for one
purpose-- TO KEEP 'EM FLYING* -and they
can do itt -Pfc. Vincent Del Ponte

C "THE SIGNALIERS"
corporal Brozanski and Corporal Morse
are leaving for Cable splicer's School at
Camp Crowder, Missouri, in the very near
future. Brozanski, who comes from New
Jersey, is bemoaning the fact that he is
not going to Fort Monmouth. I can see his
point. The poor boy would only have been
a half-hour from his home. The USO dances
will be less colorful without him, but I
understand he has appointed S/Sgt. Blasak
of Finance to take over in his absence.
"K.P." has proved to be as popular as a
burp at a banquet with the men who have
had to put in a full week. Hugh Simns
came through a week of the stuff absolutely
unscarred, but not looking for any morel
The place where K.P. is taking its toll,
is with the C.Q. This business of rous-
ing someone at four A.M. is a most dis-
agreeable task for all parties concerned.
It has been fun watching the boys in
the outfit squirm in their O.D. uniforms.
S/Sgt. Foster, who was unlucky enough to
draw two pairs of the undesirable "Blank-
et Trousers", has been obviously uncom -
fortable for the past week. "Dick" Parell
suffers the saom fate, Pe d they weep to-
gether. Don't fret boyst Six more months
and you will be back in your very comfor-
table sun tans. -Cpl. William Hines

We "ORDNOTES"
we've gotten 17 new men in the company.
They are still in quarantine and we have-
n't seen them as yet, but we are glad to
know that they are around.
If anybody wants to bet on a football

date, "Russian"? "Shorty" Woods, the fence
painter, is known as Blue Boy" since that
can of paint fell on his head. The tune
from Appalachicola now-a-days is, "Praise
the Lord, and pass the ammunition" The
boys in the old day room insist that the
fellows will come in there to play pool.
Oh, well, at this time of the month ri-
ding back from town on the bus we can all
enjoy the full moon hanging low over the
paper mill. -S/Sgt. Kenneth L. Witham

T "MUSTANGS"
he A. & R. tournaments are finally get-
ting under way, and all the outfits will
be in there fighting for the trophy. Lt.
Mills has accepted our challenge to match
his "Rugged 69ers" against our "Mustangs".
Our famous "Damon and Pythias" duo, Ser-
geants Milton and Mankin, who were born
and raised across the street from one
another and who have lived most of their
lives together, enlisted on the same day
fourteen months ago. They went thru sch-
ool together, were always in the same or-
ganizations and have the same dates on th-
eir warrants. They share everything, ex-
cept girl friends.
Sgt. Alper is a veteran of 21 months
service in the Spanish Revolution, and a
darn good soldier. Speaking of veterans
what man in our outfit could pass for a
high-school boy, yet has served six years
in the navy? Clean living does itt

brought a bride back with him from his re-
cent furlough trip to Alabama.
Sgt. Grant is Finance OCS bound. Good
luck to him and to Sgt. Carter, who leaves
for Ordnance OCS shortly.
Why do so many of the boys call at
"Pop" Bender's office so often. Is it al-
lotments, or L.J.C.?
Our pool table is fixed up with a new
cloth, thanks to Sgt. Ackerman.

outfit, pinch-hitting for our Supply Ser-
geant, who is away on furlough.
How 'bout that deluxe omnibus service?
Right to our front door, thanks to Major
Carnahan and others. -Sgt. Win. L. Cramer


H "BLUEBIRDS"
ere's a hearty "Welcome" to the newest
arrivals to the squadron. They're from
the Recruit Detachment and we want themto
feel at home.
It is with regret that we bid fond fare-
well to the fellows who have left us for
Apalachicola.
"I was robbed", shouted our Sgt. Joseph
Maggioncalda. It seems he lost his SEAA-
FTC pin and is having his room searched
for fingerprints. The last we heard was
that he was getting in touch with the F.
B.I.
(Editor's note) We want to welcome back
our rugged "Ex-Recruit Terror", Albert J.
Snead, to the squadron. It seems during
his short stay with the recruits, they cut
down his sleeping hours from eleven (11)
o'clock to five, (5) o'clock in the morn-
ing. He also came back minus a voice.
-Cpl. A.J. Snead

T RAINMAKERSS"
hose of us who are left as Yardbirds
find ourselves overwhelmed these daysD
since warrants came through last week
which raised the prestige and rank of
erstwhile Pvts. Przygocki, Swope, Weigh-
ly, Farr, Duncan, Durkee, Dumas, and Get-
tinger to Corporal. This up in grade was
in recognition of the training that th-
ese gpn have undergone either at Chanute
FieLmaather Observers' School or in the
Station here at Tyndall.
Even with the unusual hours which our
work forces us to keep, we "Rainnakers"
wake with a start when our neighborly and
ever alert bandsmen begin with a banging
march at 5i30 A.M...We haven't yet been
able to figure out whether they camp out-
side all night or not.-Pvt. Morris Lasker

ergeant Childers and crew are becom-
ing convinced that the new large plane we
have is the easiest ship on the line to
work on.
"Greasy" Fair is debating whether or
not to see the Chaplain, or to write to
Dorothy Dix.
Private Stewart says there are a few
men in the outfit he'd like to see get

to remind Sgt. Desjardins that a short
circuit isn't a three-day pass.

R "THE GUARDIANS"
reports from some of our ex-Guardsmen
indicate that Pvts. Karl Boehmer and Fred
Wald are doing all right at Gunnery School.
Best of luck to them.
Pfc. Fred Young and Pvt. A. Lamparella
(the actor), have marched up the Matri-
monial Aisle.
They say that Pvt. Duvernoy thinks the
"wishing bridge" is where you go to wish
for a furlough.
Special Society Notes At Guard Mount
the boys are thinking of serving tea and
crumpets. The young men will be dressed
in a delightful shade of Olive Drab. The
Guards of course, will come at their con-
venience, after the gold plated whistle is
blown. They will stand at attention, --
that is, if they feel like it-- and above
all, they should not be ashamed to come
with their shoes unpolished. After Guard
Mount, a meeting will be held in the day
room with ice cream being served to all.
Then, to your postst Of course, if you o
desire, someone will relieve you if you
are indisposed. Last, but not least, you
will wake up and fall out of bed.

"MEDICWOES"
W e wonder if Sgts. G-ring and Timko ,
Cpl. Makowski and Pvt. Mazur found time
to see that Alabama-Tennessee game. Pvt.
Senkinc says that those Alabama games of-

Cincinnati when he week-ended there to see
his O.A.O.
Sgt. Mash and "Scooter" Terrell are be-

NEW AVIATION CADET RATING SET-UP TO BE
RELEASED BY WAR DEPARTMENT SHORTLY
If you are planning to be an aviation
cadet, it will be well for you to be-
come familiar with some recently dis-
closed facts about the new rating set-
up planned for future cadets.
Forty per cent of the men who enter
cadet training school do not make sat-
tisfactory grades, and are sent to
technical schools for which they seem
best suited. Of the remaining men,
more than half are qualified as pilots
and the others are trained as naviga-
tors and bombadiers.
Practically all future aviation cadet
graduates will be given the grade of
"Flight Officer". The pay and allow-
ances will be the same as that of a
warrant officer (j.g.), with uniforms
similar to that of a 2nd lieutenant
except for the bars. However, the out-
standing men in each class may be award-
ed 2nd lieutenant commissions.
