Vol. 1 No. 44 Army Air Forces Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Fla., Nov. 28, 1942


1ST. U.S.O. CAMP SHOW DUE HERE DEC.7


DEPT. SAFETY AWARD


CAPTAIN JASPER R. HENDRICK, Tyndall's
Area Engineer and CHARLES W. DENNIS,
the Field's Resident Safety Engineer.

The Southeastern District of the Uni-
ted States Engineering Department an-
nounced that Tyndall Field's amazing
September record of 165,728 man-hours
of work without any accidents resulting
in lost time, was the best record made
within its jurisdiction during that
month.
S Tacked up on the wall of the Post En-
gineer's Office is the gray and maroon
banner which goes to the Army post with
the best safety record each month.
Captain Hendrick, who came to Tyndall
late in April of this year, has, in
these past seven months, done an excel-
lent job in his capacity as Area Engi-
neer. It was with regret that we heard
that the Captain left the Field today
for a new assignment.

"HULLABALOO!" is the name. It's the
first USO-Camp Show to reach Tyndall
Field. And it's only the beginning,
boys, for the Special Services Officer
has announced that before the month of
December runs out, three more similar
shows will have appeared here! It
looks like they've finally found our
address up there in New York.
Getting back to "HULLABALOO", it's a
streamlined musical revue spotlighting
talented performers from the Broadway
and Hollywood bigtime. It's a fast
paced revue filled with plenty of com-
edy, dancing and rhythm.
The famed comedians Stone and Lee
are one of the major attractions, and
from a recent tour with Chico Marx,
come Smith, Rogers and Eddy, whose
comedy dancing and funny antics have
scored hits in all theatres.
Paul Nolan, the Juggling Jester, is
another smash feature of the show with
wizardry which has kept his name in
lights for over two decades.
The Six Brucettes, lovely and talen-
ted acrobats and dancers, round out
"HULLABALOO". These amazing young la-
dies do everything that has ever been
done in acrobatics.
The beauteous brown-eyed thrush,
Anne Crosby, handles the show's song
department. Anne is not only lovely
to look at but is doubly blessed with
the famous Crosby talent which stood
her cousins, Bing and Bob, in pretty
good stead.
The show will be staged in the Post
Theatre and will probably be presented
twice during the evening. For the ex-
act time of the shows, watch the daily
bulletins.











Having expressed our gratitu e to God publicly on Thank ng Day, we should
not call it quits. It is well for all of us to make each day a private Thanks-
giving day. For too many people when praying have the spiritual "gimmies" ---
"Please God give me this, please God give me that". The purposes of prayer are
fours first, to adore God, expressing to Him our love and loyalty; second, to
obtain from Him pardon for our sins; third, to ask for graces and blessings f-
ourselves and others; fourth, to thank Him for His favors. Thanksgiving while
last is not least important. We despise an ungrateful person-- should we suppose
that God thinks otherwise of an ingrate. It takes very little time to say, "thank
you" -- only a little thought.

The Chaplains wish to call the attention of the personnel of this Post to three
week-day features of our schedule of services. On Wednesdays at 12(30 P.M. there
is amid-week Protestant Worship Service intended mainly for civilian employees
-- needless to say everyone is welcome. For Catholics there is an afternoon Mass
at 5:00 P.M. on Thursdays for those whose hours of duty keep them from Mass on
Sunday. On Wednesdays at 6:30 P.M. there is a Novena to our Lady of Victory con-
sisting of prayers appropriate for our times and Benediction of the Most Blessed
Sacrement.

IT CAN'T BE DONE

The man who misses all the fun
Is he who says, "It can't be done."
In solemn pride he stands aloof
And greets each venture with reproof
Had he the power he'd efface
The history of the human race;
We'd have no radio or trolley cars,
No streets lit by electric stars:
No telegraph nor telephone,
We'd linger in the age of stone.
The world would sleep if things were run
By men who say "It can't be done."

We hate to "pun" Kipling, but "The
Flight that Failed" is the reason being
offered for the missing Thanksgiving
Menus. After months of planning, weeks
of work, these super-duper menus, con-
taining everything from a picture of CoL
Maxwell to a course by course descript-
ion of the sumptious meal, were left
waiting at the Field in Atlanta, to-
gether with Captain Hinchman and the can-
dy. We don't think that they would have
made the meal more enjoyable, but we
would like to have them to refresh our
minds, if not our stomachs, in the dark
days that we know must lie ahead.....Miss
Louise Rollins, who deserted Col. Hynd-
* man for the railroad (Bay Line), will be
married to Sgt. Bob Mintner of the 69th
come Christmas Day. Congratulations....
For the information of those inter *:'-
that pall of smoke over Tyndall Field
on Wednesday last, was not from the pa-
per mill, altho the odor may have been
reminiscent it was from those Cremos
that Lt. Broome passed out to officially
announce the arrival of Miss Broome.....
Mr. Howell also takes pleasure in an-
nouncing the birth of four puppies to
the present occupant of his dog house...
Lt. Roberts, newly arrived, claims that
he asked to be sent to Combat Duty at
his previous station, and wanted to know
if we had a little war of our own going
on. Well we had never : o... L of
things here in that particular light....
SLts. Jennings and Patteson joined the
Caterpillar Club this week, when they
took to their parachutes, and left their
gasless AT-6 to fend for itself....The
Operations Bulletin Board is becoming
very popular with the pilots these days,
especially between the hours of 1130 and
1300 there's a good reason.... And Lt.
Stewart made a RON trip to New York this
week and they called it "leave"...Lt.
Goode is the newly appointed Asst. En.
gineering Officer of the .- Timers".
We wish him luck he'll need it...Capt.
John Thorpe, who came to this Field when
the only means of communication was 'Wig
Wag" is leaving for a new assignment in
the north...And Captain Jasper Hendrick,
Area Engineer, has also received travel
orders....Lt. "Air Corps" Miller took a
leave of absence and came back "united".
...And with all of these palm trees a-
round, this place is beginning to look
more like Florida every day.


That party "'Taler'mentioned" as being
on a milk diet last month, has completed
the "Atlas" Course and has written one
last request to Mr. Charles,- "Have fi-
nished your course. Please remit the
muscles immediately. People are askir
questions."....Then there is the sadder,
but wiser recruit in the Ordn-nce outfit
who entered his barracks room with a box
of cookies and said, "Help yourself"....
Cpl. Ponzio, pinch-hitting for furlough-
ing Ken Witham, also writes that Pfc.
Pappas, once called "Baldy", almost went
into a faint when he misunderstood the
short haircut orders to mean that it all
had to come off....The Q.M. boys wish
Sgt. Paul Hemsoth a happy birthday- and
many more, birthdays that is, not morn-
ings after....Finance reports that one
bright lad, who shall have to go down in
hiitor;- as anonymous, got the bright
idea o putting a ":.I." tie on the
white collar of his bunk. (P.S. he got
the job)....? Schun tells us that in
the Turret Instructors' roota in Building
#207, is a wailing wall knrrm as "Chap-
lain's Annex No. i". Any man can avail
himself of its use with the following
qualifications. His "T.S." slip must be

TYNDALI
We first heard about it several days
ago. As soon as we heard the news, we
began to think of the phrases we'd
use- we tried to recollect things that
have been said of him. We dusted the
cobwebs from our memory and recalled
incidents that ocoured back in the in-
fant days of the Field.
We knew what we wanted to say- but
after all he's an officer and this is
the Army, and, well, "G.I.'s" like us
aren't supposed to be too familiar
with the officers. But darn it all,
it's "G.I.'s" like us that've known
him best, guys like Foster and Panasuk
and Hines, and the rest of the Signal
Corps bunch...
Hell, men, Captain Thorpe's leaving,
but none of us who knew him will ever
forget how he rated- they just don't
come any higher.
Mrs. Thorpe, too, won't be forgotten,
Her initiative and enthusiasm in Red
Cross work and other activities of the
Officers' wives' organization, especi-
ally as one of the first editors of
the "TARGETTE" page, is something we
won't soon forget.
The men of Tyndall salute the depar-
ture of two of its best soldiers.


L TOPICS
At this writing, Captain Hinchman,
Post Mess Officer, has not as yet re-
turned from Atlanta with the elaborate
menus that were prepared for Tyndall's
Thanksgiving Day dinner. The fact
that the menus were not distributed at
the dinner as originally planned will
not alter their value when they finally
are passed out.
Those menus represent many hours of
labor on the part of the Post Mess st-
aff, the Reproduction, Photo and Draf-
ting Departments, and the unfortunate
circumstances surrounding their delay
are one of those things that comes un-
der the heading of "Tough luck".
We see no reason why the sincere ef-
forts of Captain Hinchman and the mem-
bers of the various departments should
be less appreciated because of the
delay.
In this space, last week, we called
upon the men of Tyndall Field to sub-
mit for publication, any suggestions
that they might have on how to improve
the Field. Several letters were re-
ceived and two of them appear in other
pages in this issue. Letters received
without signatures will not be printed.







Q0 0 i ~~aU(


"THE BOILERMAKERS"
ell, well, -meet Little Nellt Jim
Davis was judged the "Best Looking Boy",
or should I say, the "handsomest" Lad on
Tyndall Field last Friday night at the
"Rec" Hall Dance. We're mighty proud of
our boy and we're considering entering
him in the "Finals" at Atlantic City.
Congratulations to Lt. Zemo on the
fine work he is doing here. The Band is
behind you 100%, sir.
Bridge is still in first place down
here at the Band Barracks. Sam Thomas
hasn't yet found a successful partner
but we have to give him a lot of credit
because he is certainly trying.
-Cpl. W. Higbee

"APALA CHATTER"
Five of our crew chiefs are going back
to Tyndall, much to our regret. They
are; S/Sgts. Butler and Manning; Sgts.
Brooks, Sinclair and Wilhoit.
Gentleman Jim Carpenter put on an ex-
hibition that would have done credit to
Fred Astaire, ably supported by Miss
Margie Austin, local debutante. They
copped all honors that night. (Editor's
Note: Don't ask us which night, 'cause
we don't know).
Our Physical Trainer (Pinion) tells us
that by keeping a sound body, we too can
succeed as he has done in setting the
feminine hearts a-beating in this locale.
Van Russell has at last found the ap-
ple of his eye. She happens to be in
the graduating class at the Florida State
College for Women. Love has by no means
hampered his appetite. Now, more than
ever, he eats twice the normal amount.
We are thinking of building a dirt
track for racing purposes. The "open
road" has proven disastrous-- hasn't it?
Lt. Cheety is doing a grand job at
our mess hall, changing it to almost like
the one back home. The hanging of cur-
tains, the paint job, and the fixtures
with Air Corps patterns certainly make
things look cozy.
M/Sgt. Wright has abandoned the search
for the missing stork. "Where there's
life, there's hope", Joe!.....Belle-shy
Elliott has a knack for telling the most
interesting jokes. He keeps the fellows
at the barracks in stitches....Mo, and I
do mean "Mo-hair" Trombitas, is looking
for a tonic for his falling hair. Any-


one know of a good
bitas is willing
fellow, aren't you,


prescription? Trom-
to reward the lucky
Sarge?
-Sgt. W. J. Murphy


P "STATIC CHASERS"
Svt. Smith is greatly interested in
the recent "38,000 WAAC Contract". We
hear that they are "75% Cotton and won't
scratch".
Private Bryan thinks "Roger" gets aw-
fully tired working seven days a week.
Your reporter is grounded for a week.
The moral is: Don't trust the clock on
the wall.
We hear that the long cross countries
at times are better than three-day passes.
...Why are "cokes" so much better in the
branch PX than elsewhere?
Congratulations are in order for our
NCOIC on his recent promotion to Techni-
cal Sergeant. Thanks for the soft-drinks
T/Sgt. MacLaren.
Attention new "Chasers"s Be sure to
ask any questions that may come up from
time to time. All radio men are more
than glad to go into anything pertaining
to radio. There's one, however, that
usually gets a detoured answer- "What
makes it work?".
Popular songs Our choice this week
is "Dearly Beloved" instead of "White
Christmas", because, with "Dearly Belov-
ed" who cares whether it's a snowy X-mas
or a hot 4th of July? -Pfo. J. MacLaren

"REDBIRDS"
Cpl. W.P. Grissom, while acting as CQ,
was called upon to act as a nurse-maid
to a newly born baby, (newly born)...And
even if we must say so ourselves, he
looked swell as the mother.
Pfc. Casey is back from furlough and
looking as rolly polly as ever. He has
already started to chalk the days off
the calender. With 176 more chalk marks
he will be able to leave on his next
little trip home.
S/Sgt. Nogulich, better known as the
"Mad Russian", made his Florida debut on
Monday night. He sang part one and two
from the opera "Potato" by Faust, and
when he hit the high notes, many a pota-
to must have sprouted eyes. And speak-
of the "Mad Russian", it looks like wed-
ding bells for him and his pianist, Miss
Virginia Scarborough.











We welcome back.Cpl. Kinney, a pioneer
of the squadron who has been on D.S. for
a period of eight months.
It won't be long now boys, and we'll
have S/Sgt. Donald "Duck" Nixon back
from furlough. During his absence, Miss
Betty Clark has been doing a swell job
at keeping things going.
S/Sgt. Barney Duda enjoys every minute
while on business at Post Personnel.
Bhat's the big attraction, Sergeant?
It's just a question, but we wonder
now much hunting and fishing T/Sgt. Mills
does on a three day pass.
Remembers "It's a double saving when
you purchase WAR BONDS!" -Pfc. Del Ponte

T"FINANCE FANFARE"
he Finance pup, "Redline" has gotten
him a new friend- a nice young cat. The
tentative name- "Feline".
Pvt. Ed O'Hearn resumes his duties in
the travel section after a tough week of
K.P. Ed reports a net gain for the week
of 5; pounds.
And who would think that Pvt. Orla
Harris used to be a cowpuncher out in
Colorado.
"Personally," says our Model T Corporal
Joe Capiello, "I find it hard to believe.
The guy ain't even bow-legged."
What Cpl. in Weather with the intials
Al Dirkee, paid $8.75 for a pair of used
G. I. type shoes. -Cpl. F. Leon

D "SIGNALIERS"
anny Blumer returned from teletype
school last week, and is now capable of
as much speed on the printer as Miss
Monk, the Signal Corps civilian operator-
or at least that is what he says. Bell
left for the same school at Maxwell
Field last week. The Western Union of-
fice will be loaded with speed demons
when all the operators have taken this
course.
Sgt. Stansberry and "Russ" Cannon came
back from furlough. The latter is al-
ready planning on his next furlough.
Stansberryis talking about saving money,
and looking around for vacant apartments
in town- and that means just one thing.
These furloughs certainly are conducive
to matrimony!
Simms came through a week of K.P. with
flying colors and is enjoying watching
his good friend Cannon roll out at the


wee hours of the morning to take up where
he left off. We certainly feel sorry
for you "Russ", and if you wish, we will
oblige you with a chorus of "Hearts and
Flowers" every morning to cheer you on
your merryway to number one Mess- won't
we, Simms?
I understand that there are a great
many disappointed men on the Post due to
the outcome of the Georgia-Auburn game.
Oh well, it happens to the best of them.
I don't know whether or not that will be
of much consolation to T/Sgt. Johnny
Farr, but John, that's nothing compared
to what would happen to Georgia if they
had the misfortune to play Boston Col-
lege. -Sgt. William M. Hines

"Q.M. QUIPS"
Sgt. Bill McNeil has been making him-
self awfully scarce for the past two
weeks. We wonder if he is mad at the
world, or if he is really crazy about
his job at the boat docks. Or is it the
beach?
We all held our breath the first time
one of the new female drivers tried out
one of the 2- ton jobs. "But," Sgt. Ro-
berts said; "Why shouldn't she make it,
look who taught her." Incidentally, we
notice that Sgt. Roberts has started
crooning again, after a lay-off of se-
veral months. Wonder why?
We're all glad to see Sgt. Johnnie
Jones back from his furlough and rarin'
to go. We hope that the new gas ration-
ing won't slow him down any, even tho we
know that it will impair his speech for
the next few days.
News was scarce this week, but let's
see what next week will bring.
-Pfc. A.S. Rubin

Th "ZEBRAS"
She "Mustangs" are dead. Long live
the "Zebras", which henceforth is our
official nickname, and you know why.
Tyndall Field executives in our outfit
include such names as Sgt. Fleshman,
Student Hq. Chief Clerk and Sergeant-Ma-
jor "Brilliant" Ballantine.
SQUADRON ROMANCESs
Sgt. Albert has a beauty in Brooklyn
Sgt. Baseman has a belle in Tallahassee

Tr ""MDI OWOES
The editor of the STARGET" gently in-
formed us through last week's issue that'
we had neglected to offer news concern-
ing our officers he seemed so well in-
formed -that he forgot to mention the
promotion of former Lt. Vincent Handy to
the rank of Oaptain. Congratulations,
Captain! The same editor hinted that we
are not keeping tab on the officers'
athletic activities. We try our best to
get most of the news, but it is almost
impossible to keep up to date when as
far away as Chicago.
(Editor's note: To Sgt. Charles Laubly
the "TARGET" extends a warm welcome back
from an emergency furlough. We hope
that matters in Chicago have taken a
turn for the better. To Captain Vincent
Handy, we offer regrets for the over-
sight-- had you been seen at the PX with
your new set of bars, which was where we
sighted Captain Gaston, there would have
been no omission.)
Sgt. Mullins did a fine job of report-
ing. to my way of thinking...Pfc. McMur-
trie was seen in a very happy state
after talking to that number in College
Park. Georgia....Sgt. Seagle, of the low
pressure unit, was seen trying high
pressure methods on the local belles.
That isn't an inner spring mattress on


Pvt. Pellerin's bed....That .

ed something about all the weight that
Pvt. Wa. Ganda has been adding to his

At one time there was one of those in-
separable Army friendships- the 4 D's,
Dolan, Doyle, Doris and DiStefano. If
one was restricted, they all were, Then
shipment and marriage broke up the com-
bination. But I'm sure the bond of fri-
endship will never die, and in the dsys
to come, perhaps the 4 D's will meet a-
gain and relive their Army days.

clude him, too.) -Pfc. Maurice Gould

"CANARIES"
Congratulations to S/Sgts. Fisbaugh,
Fewell, Bruner and Pesnell on their re-
cent promotion to the grade of T/Sgts.
We understand that chicken dinners will
be "on the house" as soon as the added
"arm weight" becomes weight somewhere
else. Line forms to the right, men!
Sgt. Cofer has suddenly taken a great
interest in "country life", andwe under-
stand that he has been spending all his
leisure time "previewing" through the
rural districts of P.C. How 'boot it,
"Toffer"?
With the new radio and reading lamps,
the old day room has taken on a very
"homey* atmosphere. We'll lay odds that
there isn't a nicer day room on the Post.
Let's keep it that way, fellows.
Sgt. Bradbury was seen entering one of
the furniture stores "uptown" in the
company of a young lady. Planin' on
somepin', Brad? Perhaps lst/Sgt. Twit-
chell can give you a little advice?
The men on the line have been trying
to find out who, or what, is the "bottle-
neck" that is causing the delay in our
boys receiving their leather "mech" uni-
forms. We understand that there is a
reward being offered to the "trouble-
shooter who can find it and eliminate
it. -Sgt. D.T. Rountree

"ORDNOTES"
ur regular reporter, Sgt. (Bojangles)
Witham has taken off on furlough to the
wide open spaces of Vermont where, by
this time, he is madly skiing up and
down the streets of Montpieller, scream-
ing like a wild Indian on the loose- all
because he'll be able to do some old-
fashioned New England "bundling" with
'his little red-headed Pocahontas. No
wonder he waited until the wintertime.
Upon his return, Sgt. Witham will touch
upon the finer points of "bundling" and
give lessons to all interested.
The Inspector General paid us a visit
and found the Ordnance "right on the
ball!" Not only were we complimented on
having the best looking Magazine Area in
the Southeast, but a surprise visit to
our barracks drew high praise. Take a
bow. Take a bow...The warehouse gate is
the mystery spot of the Post. the most
peculiar, or shall we say, romantic, th-
ings happen there...Sgt. Lamuraglia got
his gas ration card. Is it true, Toby,
that that coffee grinder of yours works?

A LETTER TO THE EDITOR
FROM "THE GUARDIANS"
Dear Editor:
Having just finished my regular Mon-
day morning perusal of my favorite news-
paper, "THE TARGET", I note a very seri-
ous omission. On your front page it
stated that General Royce was welcomed
by our C.O. and his Staff, and also by
the Field Band. Could it be that your
correspondent didn't see all those white
gloves, or did he think we were part of
the Band?
We were two platoons strong, ably com-
manded by our C.O. and Provost Marshall,
Major John Wilkins, with ourselves as
Platoon Sergeants. We aren't looking
for undeserved credit, but those boys in
the ranks turned out as fine a piece of
work as I have ever had the pleasure of
witnessing, much less take part in- and
you can bet than I have witnessed and
taken part in quite a few during the
past few years.
I am reasonably sure this was due to
some circumstance beyond your control,
but thought it my duty to look out for
the boys and growl about it anyway.
Sincerely,
Sgt. Charles E. Bernard, Growler
Sgt. Clarence T. Dodd, Co-Growler

(Although our "correspondent" was on the
line to witness General Royce's ar-
rival, the story in the "TARGET" had al-
ready beenwritten in an unsuccessfulat-
tempt to get the paper out that evening.
Yes, the "Gt 'dians" were there, and
their presence certainly added to the
impressive occasion.)

C "THE GUARDIANS"
Jome of our informants have told us
that two "ex-Guardians" at Ft. Myers, C.
Hammonds and P. Davis, have been promot-
ed to Staff Sergeant and "Buck" Sergeant
respectively. Good work, boys!.....And
now Pfc. Meola has come back from his
Brooklyn furlough and all he does is
rant and rave about the "Big Town".
One thing we admire is Cpl. Schieber's
prowess and ability at public speaking,
especially when there is no public!....
Incidentally, why are Cpls. Leto, Mash-
burn and Wilkinson called "chow hounds"?
....And who is giving those El Ropo ci-
gars to Sgt. Hamilton?..Add Coincidentss

Pvt. Sasso; also, between Pvts. Lambert

"RHYTHM REVIEW" NEW TYNDALL RADIO SHOW
TO BE SPONSORED BY P.R.O. AND FIELD BAND
On Tuesday night, December 1, the
Tyndall Field Band and the Public Re-
lations Office will present their first
of a new weekly series of radio broad-
casts entitled "Rhythm Review". The
program will originate at the U.S.O.
Building on Harrison Avenue and will be
heard locally over WDLP.
Scripts for the show are being pre-
pared by Sgt. Dale Barton and Opl. Ro-
bert Paquin under the supervision of Lt.
Jesse Bigbee, P.R.O. Barton and Paquin
will also share the announcing chores.
In addition to the scintillating mu-
sical scores of the Field's own "Rhythm
Pilots", Tuesday evening's program will
feature specialty numbers by Cpl. Wn.
Rubin in a cello solo of Gabriel-Marie's
"La Cinquataine", and the heart-throb
vocals of Pvt. Jim Coniff. Mrs. Norman
Price has kindly consented to appear on
the program and is scheduled to "send"
listeners with "Do You Miss Your Sweet-
heart?".
A true-to-life dramatization of an
actual rescue by Tyndall's fleet of
crash boats will be heard in script en-
titled "It Happened At Sea". S/Sgt.
Alfred Nelson, Sgt. Barton and Cpl. Pa-
quin will be "starred" in the opus.


POST ADMINISTRATIVE INSPECTOR AND STAFF
PRAISED BY INSPECTOR GENERAL OF AAFSETC
Before leaving Tyndall Field last week,
the Inspector General told a "TARGET"
reporter that this was the first Post in
the AAFSETC to receive a negative report
so far this year. And, drawing the line
finer, they stated, "There was not a
single discrepancy noted in the reports
of unit and similar funds." This last
statement was only part of the praise
heaped upon the work of Captain Harold
Shipmaker and his staff.
In checking on the enlisted members of
the Captain's staff, we found that two
of his crack accountants havu an unusu-
ally paralleled career. Cpls. Charles
Grady and Ben Hagan both come from the
same town, Kinston, North Carolina. They
were inducted into the Army on the same
day, January 13, '42, and were both sent
to Ft. Bragg where they remained for two
weeks before being shipped to Tyndall.
In February, both men were selected to
attend the Army Clerical School at Ft.
Logan, returning here in April. Then,
for the first time in their Army career,
they were separated, but only for a few
weeks. Cpl. Grady was assigned to the
Post Administrative Inspector's Office
and Hagan joined him in June. Needless
to say, both belong to the same squadron.


POST LIBRARY OFFERS DIVERSION, KNOWLEDGE TO MILITARY AND CIVILIAN PERSONNEL
(By Pvt. P. Nickles)


Tyndall men who sometimes complain
about the lack of "extra-curricular" ac-
tivities are once more reminded that
the Post Library offers a solution to
their problem.
Are you looking for a "nail-biting"
adventure story as an appetizer before
"hitting the hay"? Have you forgotten
the formula for determining the specific
gravity of an object? Is there some
principle of radio operation that you
don't understand? Are you seeking in-
formation concerning the political back-
ground of the peoples involved in the
present struggle for freedom?
Whether it's fiction, non-fiction or
text books, the Post Library in the
building at Georgia and Suwannee Roads
is ready and able to answer your ques-
tions and satisfy your wants- if it's in
a book.
Cpl. John Chapman, the chief librarian,
has had previous experience in the field
and has established a commendable repu-
tation for "service with a smile" to the
"customers" that enter his work-shop.
Well worth hours may be spent leisure-


ly with literature by Thackery, Hardy,
Woolcott, Pearl Buck, Katheleen Norris,
Sinclair Lewis, Zane Grey and many more
of the world's famed yarn-spinners.
Technicians and mechanics will find a
quantity of material available in their
respective fields, such as "Radio", "En-
gineering", "Navigation", etc.
Linguists may begin or review their
Spanish, French, and German, and Scien-
tists their Math, Chemistry, Physics,
and Aeronautics. Magazines range from
"Aero-Digest" to "Pic" -with the latest
copies of each being available.
Approximately 2500 books are on hand
at the library, which is still in the
building that formerly housed the Red
Cross office and also served as head-
quarters for the old 80th A.B. Group.
How about dropping in and taking ad-
vantage of this free offer of entertain-
ment and knowledge?
SUGGESTED READING--
"They Were Expendable"
"Physics & Aviation"
"Woolcott Reader"
"Your Wings"






DO YOU KNOW WHAT A "PFFINITINEE" ARE?
Do any of you know what a "pffiniti-
nee" are? Well, a "pffinitinee" are
Plural, the souls of departed weathermen,
devoured by isobars, digested by a low-
pressure cell. Their natural habitat are
thunder clouds, and as far as we know,
their main article of diet consists of
weathermen who are not yet departed.
They get inside one and in addition to
drawing strength and nourishment from
him, develop same peculiar antics. They
actually are closely related to the R.A.
F.'s famed gremlin, except that they
are web-footed, duck-downed, and attack
only weathermen.
The main reason for the foregoing de-
scription ofa "pffinitinee" is that they
have at last discovered Tyndall Field,
and are beginning to make inroads on the
staff of Fourth Weather.
For example; A certain Cpl. whose ini-
tials are Al Durkee, bought a pair of
nice new shoes the other night, for which
he paid the tidy sum of $8.95. He de-
posited them carefully in the local USO,
after which he went off in search of an
ancient Greek God named Dionysius, ap-
parently with some success. On return-
ing to the barracks he proudly opened
his package to display his new foot fine-
ry, only to find that a "pffinitinee"
had been at work and had swapped his
brand new shoes for a pair of shrunken,
second-hand G. I. barges, that didn't
even fit. You see what can happen to
the incautious weatherman?
Or take the case of a certain Tech.
Sgt. at the station, who, with the aid
of shaving-soap and a brush, worked his
face up into a lather, and started shav-
ing. After working industriously for a
flw seconds, muttering sounds, usually
represented in polite literature by a
series of asterisks, became audible, be-
ing mainly a profane description of the
cutting qualities of his razor. This
gave way shortly to the now classic
plaints "No wonder it won't cut my beard
off-------there's no blade in the bloody
thing". A "pffinitinee" were at work
once more.
There's no telling how far this will
go; with the aid of the weatherman' wet
finger, we'll keep you posted on the ha-
voc wrought in Fourth Weather by the
gremlins little cousins-a "pffinitinee".

AMERICAN LEGION POST SENDS LETTER OF
THANKS FOR FIELD'S PARTICIPATION IN FAIR

"Col. Maxwell, Commander
Tyndall Field, Fla.

Dear Col. Maxwell:-
Itis the desire of James McKnight #66,
American Legion of Panama City, that a
letter of thanks be written you for your
splendid and willing cooperation given
our Post by your organization in the
conduct-of our annual fair.
Especially do we want to thank you for
the concert given our Post by the Tyn-
dall Field band; for the Air Plane you
placed on the Fair Grounds which was
viewed by many thousands; for your re-
cruiting booth and all personnel assign-
ed to these exhibits.
We appreciate the high moral tone main-
tained thru the assistance of your Mili-
tary Police and the fine services of Sgt.
Marshall in charge of Military Police.

Youl.
Yours very truly,
John A. Stringer, Adjutant"

The above letter was received by Col-
onel Warren A. Maxwell early last week.
The Colonel turned the letter over to
the "TARGET" with the statement- "I was
highly pleased with the manner in which
the men of Tyndall Field lent their co-
operation and assistance to making the
recent Bay County Fair a successful
event. Although the letter was address-
ed to me, credit and thanks should go to
the men who participated".

TYNDALL FIELD "SUGGESTION BOX"

Dear Editor,
Have read your article in the "TARGET"
on suggestions and want to comment on
the subject of K.P. duty.
Everyone will agree that a full week
of K.P. at any mess hall is too much.
Being a private, I am "eligible" for
K.P. duty. As a member of the Band,
however, I am "limited" to three days
at a time. So, if the Week of K.P.
were reduced to three-day stretches,
it would not affect me, but it would

RED CROSS
The needles were clicking furiously
at the knitting group on Monday, and
the end of the quota will be reached
soon, with EVERYONE contributing their
efforts. We're still working on the
Navy watch caps, scarves, and sweat-
ers, with lots of beginners s*;:in p
on small knitted squares for afghans.
When the quota is turned in, we hope
very much to receive more Army yarn
so that there will be lots of quick
and easy garments to make for those
girls who are knitting for the first
time. We're gratefulfor every newcom-
er to our group and hope that each one
will tell her friends to come, too.
The sewing group has started work on
the children's pinafores. The print
is pink and white, and they are comp-
lete with ruffles, and lots of fun to
make. The need is still urgent for
more sewers, for machine stiV '*I' ,
basting, and cutting out patterns. We
want to repeat our appeal to each and
everyone of our readers to come to
the Red Cross Headquarters in the old
bank building, on Mondays, from 1 to 4
P.M. Come and give as much time as you
can spare. All the Red Cross work is
an important contribution which every
one can make. Our meetings are also
an ideal means of getting acquainted.


BOWLING NEWS
This is the last week of the tourna-
ment, and excitementis running rampant
through the teams. Everyone still has
a chance to come out on top, so every
little extra pin knocked down raises

FIELD BASKETBALL TOURNEY BEGINS MON.


Opening guns of Tyndall's '42-'43
basketball season will boom on Monday,
November 30th, when the "Guardians" and
Finance cagers exchange "set" shots on
Court #1 at 4:00 P.M. Also scheduled to
meet on Monday are the "Signaliers" and
the "Canaries". These two frays will

play at the designated time.
Plans for this tournament were comolet-
ed last Thursday night at the A. & R.
meeting. A committee composed of S/Sgt.
Hash, S/Sgt. Olson, Sgt. Moran, Pfc. Gow-
land and Pvt. Aydellotte, was appointed
to take charge of all basketball arrange-
ments, including the designation of the
time at which all games will be played.
All squadrons are asked to begin form-
ing teams for the other sports of the
second quarter of the year-'round sports
program.

the rugged physical training course in
stride. He says that this statement is
in no way a reflection on the "desk"
pilots, who are also taking their train-
ing seriously.***
M/Sgt. Dick Underwood has marked off
Nov. 30th on his desk calender as "69th
Funeral date". However, before the Fi-
nance men can call the hearse, they've
got to down five "good men and true" in

have challenged the "Wizards" (strictly
a set'-up) for their first game of the
season. Times 7s30 P.M., Monday evening.

Editor, Tyndall, "TARGET"
I would like to suggest that you
submit the idea of selling morning
newspapers in the PX. It is usually
impossible to get some from the news-
boy. Any man that is seen with the
"MOBILE REGISTER" is usually mobbed by
appeals to pass it on.
There is no better morale builder
than the following of the War and the

steps in the right direction, I still
believe that newspapers should be made
available to the entire field,
