Vol. 1 No. 41 Army Air Forces Gunnery School, Tyndall FiMr, Fla., Nov. 7, 1942
PLANES LEAVE FIELD IN EMERGENCY TEST
A generation has slipped away since
Fort Pierce, Florida, bade good-bye to
Frank B. Tyndall, whose marksmanship
in the skies over St. Mihiel won him
a commission in 1918, and for whom
this Field was named.
Now, twenty-four years later, Fort
Pierce is again sending her native
S sons into world conflict- this time to
win a lasting peace. Fittingly, many
of the sturdy Florida town's younger
sons have come to Tyndall Field to en-
list in the service of their country.
Above are pictured three of the most
recent to volunteers (L. to R.) Billy
Richardson, 19; Pvt. Richard Black, of
the Recruiting Office; J. W. Hucks,
Jr., 18; and Joseph Turner, 18.
TYDALL FIELD OPENS RADIO SCHOOL
The Post Communications Office was
turned into a school room last week as
Lt. Russo and his staff began to trein
twenty Tyndall men in the science of
radio operation and maintenance. These
men are being put through a stiff six-
week course, after which they will re-
lieve the short-handed staff now need-
ed to operate our larger planes.
"Batten down the hatches and take
offt" This was the phrase that echoed
up and down Tyndall's flying line yes-
terday as Colonel Maxwell ordered all
ships in flying commission to leave
the Field for points north. The order
was the result of reports that bad
weather might be heading this way.
The Colonel issued the order at ap-
proximately 3s30 P.M. and within seven-
ty minutes, all but three of the planes
commissioned for flying were on their
way. All pilots were previously re-
quested to be on the alert and when
the call came, were ready for immediate
take-off. Details and assignments were
smoothly handled by Majors Bades and
Wilson and Lt. Richards.
Meanwhile, the ground crews were
stripping the "line" of all movable
equipment, and at 500 P.M., Tyndall's
flight line was ready for "action".
It was shortly after 9s00 P.M. that
Colonel Maxwell relaxed his vigilance
at Post Operations. The last unreport-
ed ship radioed its safe arrival, and
the Field's first mass plane evacuation
was completed successfully.
YOUR MOTHER'S PRAYING
A priest once met an old Spanish mother who asked him to pray for her bull-
fighter son. And when the priest met the bullfighter himself, leaning against a
tree, dressed in silver and black, smoking his cigarette, the priest wondered and
asked himif he were not excited, were he not afraid about the morrow and the bull.
"Why, no," said the bullfighter, "why should I be afraid?"
"But the bull might gore you. That should scare you enough."
"Oh,nol" said the bullfighter. He stamped out his cigarette and grinned,
"Amigo. Padre, my friend. That bull, he has no mother to pray for him, yes?"
A horse can't pull while kicking.
This fact I merely mention.
And he can't kick while pulling,
Which is my chief contention.
Let's imitate the good old horse
And lead a life that's fitting;
Just pull an honest load, and then
There'll be no time for kicking.
"Most of our failures can be traced to the superstition that other people
are not so smart as we are."
"A self-made man is usually a horrible example of unskilled labor."
"I refuse to be an atheist. There's no future in it." -St. Thomas Moore

It seems to us that the folks of Pana-
ma City greatly underestimate the appre-
ciation of beauty possessed by the men
of Tyndall Field. To back up this state-
ment we present the following incident:
Miss Mildred Penton, a member of the
senior class at the Bay County High
School, was a candidate for the title of
"Senior Queen"- and following a natural
course for the procurement of votes, had
a portrait photograph of herself placed
in various Panama City eateries. One
such photograph was placed on the count-
er of the Splendid Cafe on Harrison-
Avenue, near Fifth Street.
It would follow, in the natural course
of events, that a photograph of such a
comely subject would not remain station-
ary unless nailed down or bolted. And,
just such a thing happened. The framed
portrait of Miss Penton disappeared from
the Splendid Cafe one day last week.
Employees of the cafe are prone to be-
lieve that the "lifting" was done by a
member of this Field- percentages lead
us to the same conclusion.
So, in all probability, a Tyndall man
now has a picture of the "Senior Queen",
for Miss Penton won the honor in the
final voting. BUT, the photograph that
is missing belongs to her mother- it was
an especially good portrait -and her
mother has asked us to aid her in obtain-
ing its return.
As far as we know, there hasn't been
any reward offered, and we don't think
that there ought to be- however, if the
photograph is turned in to this office,-
we might be able to arrange for an intro-
duction to Miss Penton -what more could
Of late, there has been much comment
on the Field concerning the improvement
of the food at Mess Hall #1. Credit for
the "New Deal" has gone mostly to Lt. C.
Broome, who, no doubt, is greatly res-
We are inclined to believe, however,-
that Lt. Broome, if given the opportunity
to publicly say so, would give ample
credit to his staff of mess sergeants,
cooks and K.P.s for their part in the
"mess hall metamorphisis".
Pvt. Ben Johnson was recently inducted
into the service and was stationed at Ft.
Bliss, Texas. He had applied for a com-
mission in the Signal Corps, and was
"sweating it out". He was on K.P. duty
when notified of its approval.
Was there ever a neater example of the
proverbial jump from the "frying pan in-
to the fire"?
The entire squadron extends a belated
welcome to Lt. Lyman, our ntsw Adjutant.
Not mentioning any naeaa, but a cer-
tain supply "sergeant" ': certain
squadron, nicknamed the ?':-ownies" had
the whole bunch of us -a 6dgs until the
slt "':aant finally dl- ,i-'n and gave
him his furlough papers----- here's hop-
ing he has a good time -- he sure did
sweat it out!

BSRGEANT HARRY MULLINS is the first
member of Tyndall's Guard Squadron to
have his picture in the "TARGET". We
can't figure out how come these original
"69ers" have been keeping out of the
range of our cameras, because they have
a host of good men in their ranks, and
Sergeant Mullins is one of them.
Harry hails from Crossett, Arkansas,
and has been in the service since Jan-
uary 24, 1941. He came to Tyndall on
December 24, 1941, and his present as-
signment bears the impressive title of
"Sergeant of the Sentry Boxes".
Miss Elma Weller came down to Panama
City from Ohio this summer, for a short
visit. She didn't know she would meet
Harry Mullins, but she did, on her second
day here- and she hasn't returned to
Ohio yet, for she's been Mrs. Harry Mul-
lins since October 10th.

Good Buddies, all the news I get from Tyndall is usually a week old. I don't
feel like writing at present because I just learned that one of my best friends

A REPORTER'S NOTES ON AN A. & R. MEETING
We read in Wednesday's Daily Bulletin
that there would be a meeting of all A.
& R. Representatives on Thursday night
at 6s30 P.M. at the "Rec" Hall. We made
a mental note at the time that we would
take time off and attend the meeting....
We almost forgot about it, and got
down there twenty minutes late...We ex-
pected to find at least fifteen or twenty
men present, andwere rather disappointed
upon discovering that only five organi-
zations were represented... We were disap-
pointed for several reasons. First of
all, we're one of those guys whose work
involves a lot of "desk fatigue" and
we're looking forward to "throwing" a
few elbows on thebasketball court; also,
we're one of the few who know how much
Lt. Lawson has put into his A. & R. pro-
gram and how desperately anxious he is
to make it successful; and lastly, but
not leastly, we know that the fellows on
the Field who might have the free time
to participate won't get a chance to
because no one in their outfit had enough
interest to see to it that an A. & R.
non-com was sent to the meeting.
At the meeting we saw the "Red Birds'"
Pfc. Madden and Cpl. Clark; the Finance's
Cpl. Leon; "Brownies" Cpl. Belk; Medic's
Cpl. Tarr; the "Old Timers'" Pvt. Lam-
bert; and, we were told, the "White Fla-
shes'" Cpl. Olsen had phoned to let them
know he couldn't make it.
Each of these men impressed us as be-
ing capable and eager to get things star-
ted in their squLdrons- but nothing could
be done because all the representatives
weren't there to arrange for the best
time that the teams could meet...
We left the meeting thinking that in
each of the outfits not represented,
someone was not "on the ball"...and every
man on the Field was the loser for it...
The A. & R. Office announces that fif-
teen sets of bows (45 lbs.) and arrows
are available for use to the men on the
Field. Instruction will be provided upon
request. Call at the "Rec" Hall.
Mr. Bob Ford, Golf Pro at the Panama
Country Club, announces that a one day
golf tourney will be held on Sun., Nov-
ember 8th. Match play, flights of eight.
Drawing at 10s30 A.M., entrance fee of
$2.00, dinner included.

ARMY SPECIALIST CORPS ABOLISHED NEW
ALASKAN HIGHWAY TO OPEN NOVEMBER 15TH
The Army Specialist Corps, which had
inducted approximately 1,300 men was
abolished, the War Department announced,
and all future commissions directly
from civilian life will be given in the
Specialist Reserve until the men com-
missioned have completed a course of
military training. The change was made,
the War Department said, because it was
found inadvisable in the interest of
efficiency, uniformity of operations,
discipline and the avoidance of dupli-
cation of effort to have two uniformed
War Secretary Stimson reported the
Alcan Highway is now open to trucks car-
rying munitions and materials to troops
in Alaska for its entire length of 1,671
miles. Formal opening will probably
take place November 15, he said.
