BALLOT IN "TARGET" SPONSORED CONTEST
There'll be no taxis waiting to
take you to the polls, fellas, but
every effort will be made to facilitate
the voting in the "Miss Tyndall Field"
contest which begins today. For the
men who will find it inconvenient to
reach the ballot boxes, the first ser-
geants of each squadron have been asked
to appoint either their squadron re-
porter or their mail clerk to receive
all ballots and turn them in to the
Ballot boxes will be found at both
the Main and Line Exchanges, at the
Post Theatre and at Post Headquarters.
Extra ballots will be distributed to
the squadrons, but the men are again
reminded to vote only once each week.
Signatures on ballots will be careful-
ly checked against squadron rosters.
Voters are also cautioned against
"persuasion" by first sergeants to
vote for certain candidates. All that
is asked is that you vote for the girl
whom you think most deserves the title
"Miss Tyndall Field".
In addition to their photographs in
the *TARGET", 4"x6" portraits of each
week's candidates will be displayed
near the ballot box in the soda foun-
tain department of the Main Exchange.
Candidates entered thus far are:
Misses Kitty Safar, Gertrude Spradley,
Pauline McLain, Ruby Carswell, Evaa
Atkinson, Josephine Grimsley, Dorothy
Stutts, Polly Wyant, Alma Cathrall,
Jeanne McKelvin, Lois Carlos, Anita

MR. BEANS KICK-ITIS
Some people get tonsilitis, some get appendicitis, and some "queer eggs" get
Kick-itis. If you have tonsilitis, it will give you a pain in the throat. If
you have appendicitis, it will give you a pain in the abdomen. If you have Kick-
itis, YOU will give everybody else a pain in the neck.
"There is a crack in everything that God made," said Emerson, and we know
another fact to be equally true -some people see only the cracks and nothing else.
When Mr. Beans Kick-itis finds a fault in something or in somebody it makes
him happy. If he had to admit that something is just right, he wouldbe dis-
appointed, and feel very unhappy because then he would have nothing to criticize,
nothing to complain about -- and nothing to talk about.
Let a group of enthusiastic men try to do something constructive -- Beans
Kick-itis will throw cold water on it by dragging out suspicion, doubts and pes-
simism, It gives him joy, some queer kind of pleasure, and a sense of importance
to do it. He will not "pitch in" with you, but pitch at you and your ideas.
"So-and-so's a swell guy, isn't he? He's got lots on the ball. Swell char-
acter. Fine personality."
"Aw nuts," croaks Bean Kick-itis. "Guys like that may look good from a dis-
tance but look at him closely -- he's only a hand-shaker and a back-slapper."

Cure for Kick-itis
1) Constant cheerfulness don't be afraid to smile and make others smile.

many of them. Remember, only one Person was perfect, and He died on the Cross.

Lt. Walter J. McKinsey, one of our
leading "desk pilots", went out for tar-
get practice last week and helped some-
one else get a high score. He was shoot-
ing at the wrong "target"...Lt. Col.
Jack Randolph came to Tyndall on Wednes-
day, and since we're not sure which po-
sition will be his upon the return of
Col. Maxwell-we can't tell you any more,
except that he became the acting-Field
C.O. on his arrival...And then there was
the sergeant who called us and asked,
"who is the Commanding Officer today?...
Lt. Berg strolled downthe line the other
day to take up a plane on a routine fir-
ing mission. He saw two "G.I.'s in the
rear of his plane, waved to them, got in
the front cock-pit and took off. Ap-
proaching the target, he gave the signal
to commence firing. No action. He turn-
ed to his passengers and pointed to the
target. His passengers waved back at
him quite pleasantly. Once more he ap-
proached the target and waved his hand
in that direction, and once more he was
greeted with a courteous wave on the
partof his passengers. Lt. Berg brought
his plane down and angrily turned to the
two "G.I.'s" and demanded an explanation.
"No ammunition," said one, and when Lt.
Berg politely informed them that gunners
took care of their own ammunition, the
other replied, "but we're only recruits
and someone said that if we came down
here we'd be able to get a ride"...And
who is it that Lt. "My nerve!" Fargos is
always imagining himself engaged to?....
Mr. Howell intends to leave soon on one
of his many leaves. Incidentally, now
that his "kid" brother was recently com-
missioned a Lt. down at Miami, Mr. How-
ell is the lowest ranking member of the
Howell family. (Which includes one Col-
onel that we know of)...Fourth Communi-
cations welcomes its new C.O., Lt. Wim.
H. Stephans...The non-coma over at Mess
#1 were non-plussed when they saw three
of the Field's four Lt. Colonels dining
there the other noon...And what's this
about the B.O.Q. going to the dogs in a
bigger than ever wayl...Lil Nell Smith
told us the one about the colored Mammy
who, when asked where her son in the ser-
vice was, replied, "He's at Hallelujah,
30 miles from the Pearly Gates...We know
when to stop.
S/Sgt. Bagwell took Personnel's Louise
Solomons out on a date and he returned
to the Field minus his "silver wings".
"Routine flight" must have been Bagwell's
comment...Then there's the member of the
"Buzz Bugs" (4th Communications to you
furriners) who, after listening all af-
ternoon to an instructor's advice about
"It's always an empty gun that kills a
person, never a loaded one," visited one
of P.C.'s shooting galleries. When his
firearm refused to go off, he placed his
finger across the muzzle of the gun in
an attempt to set the trigger off; he
was successful, but it almost cost him a
finger- which goes to show you that an
instructor should be listened to, for he
may be right...And Sgt. "Hair-Trigger"
Dugan of the "cloud Hoppers" has taken
to shooting tommy-guns instead of the
well-known bull...Pfc. Mabel and Pvt.
Himmelfarb went "dined out" at one of
the P.C.'s drug stores the other night.
They used the occasion to try out their
"lines" on the junior-misses who are em-
ployed as waitresses. "We're a hit!"
they exclaimed, as they received their
orders in record time...Sgt. Sam Schun,
able "Zebras" reporter and D.T. ins-
tructor, has left us for a course at the
new Ft. Myers school...The P. C. News
Herald carried a story in its "Our Town"
column concerning the difficulties that
the civilian population has in obtaining
food. It hinted that week-end chow at
Tyndall would be the thing. Needless to
say, the item raised several eyebrows...
S/Sgt. Foster of Signal, after twenty
months of service, has finally taken off
on his first furlough. Someone should
have gone along with him- things have
changed these past twenty months...Ken
Stitt, former Ist/Sgt. of the "Redbirds"
just received his gold bars...Somewhere,
a Tyndall man is wearing a halo. This
particular fugitive from Diogenes recei-
ved $5.00 too much in change after a PX
purchase- and returned it. All of it...
The Yardbird writes that he will be
ready for his first "solo" shortly...And
the Personnel Section is planning on
having its own Christmas party. S/Sgt.
Reginald McKaig will have the leading
role...H.Q.'s "Ace" Barrette is back from
furlough- married. You could almost feel
him "take over". 4e. 7Z/t^

A corporal whom we consider a very
good friend of ours approached us the
other day and asked if we wrote the
"editorials" in the "TARGET". Ready
for anything, we replied, "yes". Well,
instead of giving us an "eating out",
it seems that he wanted us to share in
the pleasure of a recent discovery of
He had just returned from the second
of two trips to the Field's Dental
Clinic, where he haa some very in-
tricate work done on his "molars". He
couldn't quite contain his enthusiasm
as he related how, on both occasions,
from two different dental officers, he
received expert and painless attention.
From what we could gather, the cor-
poral's greatest amazement was at the
discovery that such service was avail-
able on the Field. If uuch is the
case, then there mustbe many more Tyn-
dall G.I.'s who probably don't know
that they have, within "walking" dis-
tance, the best there is in dental
service- and all for free.
We didn't learn the "hard way" about
our "drillers"- but we did let one at
Eglin work on us last year. He gave
us the most painless yanking we've
ever had, and since then we've always
had a warm spot in our hearts for Army
We're almost looking forward to our

We've been receiving quite a few
letters for our "Suggestion Box" but
the sudden increase in the quantity of

past few issues, and we've been unable
to print as many as we'd like to. The
last two issues of the "TARGET" con-
tained sixteen pages, which is the
largest we've ever put out- and we
still had morb material that merited
This increase in size, and the fact
that one of our staff of three was away
on furlough has been responsible for
the "TARGET" reaching you several days
late during the past month. From now
on, we see no reason why it shouldn't
"reach the newsstands" on Saturdays.
Occasionally, of course, the Repro-
duction Dept. may find itself filled
up with "rush" orders, and this may
delay the "TARGET"--- But remember,

Everyone appeared to have enjoyed him-

the men to take part in the many sports
activities on the Field.

Welcome to Mrs. Powell, Mrs. Barrow,
Mrs. Symons, andMrs. Lasker, newcomers
to our Monday afternoon meetings. A
cordial invitation is extended to all
Army wives to come in and knit, or
learn to knit from one of several in-
structors. There are still plenty of
Navy scarfs to be completed for the
present quota, and they're lots of fun
and very easy to work on.
The Surgical Dressings class, under
the competent instruction of Mrs. Hin-
chman, is proud of their record this
past week. At the Monday morning meet-
ing, 500 dressings were completed by
this group. This is the highest num-
ber made at one meeting to date. But
that record should be increased, and
can be, easily, if more people will
contribute a small part of their time.
The work is easy and gives everyone an
opportunity for meeting old friends
and new. We want to urge everyone to
come to the Red Cross Headquarters on
Monday mornings from 9 to 12, and give
what time you can to a very valuable
part of the Red Cross program.
The climax of the bowling tournament

TYNDALL SPORT SLANTS
The enlisted men still seem to rule
the roost at Tyndall as far as sports
activities are concerned. Down at the
hospital softball diamond last Satur-
day, the E.M.'s batted their way to a
7-4 victory over the Officers. While
Cpl. Maxwell (no relation) pitched a
good game, Capt. Dee of the losers
claimed that if the Officers had only
bunted through Senkinc, they would have
had a better score.
Ordnance reports that the Medics
didn't quite make the same showing on
the basketball court as they did on
the diamond. The Ordmen took their
measure last week by a score of 18-12.
"The game was quiet and no arguments
ensued, although the referee quit at
the half. The last half was refereed
by a representative of each team, and
from the score, the Ordnance man was
the bigger of the two."
How the mighty have fallen! The
once haughty Finance bowling "Wizards"
received their second consecutive set-
back of the season on Wednesday when
a groupof curve artists from the "Gun-
ner Makers" took a two out of three.
lst/Sgt. Taylor tells us that M/Sgt.
Dick Underwood dropped out at the
third game and the Finance men put in
Mrs. (S/Sgt.) Bobby Costigan in his
place. (The Finance boys won that ga-
me). Pfc. Louis Kottke turned in the
best scores of the evening for the
"Gunner Makers", with Bresler, Laudis,
Adamec and Craumer also doing well.

"BROWNIES" VARY USUAL MESS HALL PARTY
Last night, the "Brownies" staged
their first mess hall party since their
arrival at Tyndall. Having observed
the successes of the parties given by
other squadrons, the "Brownies" deter-
minedto give their boys the same, with
a little extra added.
The chief purpose of the party was
to get all the boys together at one
time, and for a few hours forget their
routine duties and relax- with enter-
tainment, brew and steaks.
Under the supervision of Lt. Lyman,
the Squadron Adjutant, the members of
the arrangement committee, headed by
let/Sgt. Barbier and Cpl. Jimmy Free-
man, really cooked up a grand affair.
In addition to the foodstuffs, there
were the lilting hill-billy songs as
only Pfc. Coveleski and Pvt. Semonkos-
ki (harmonic and guitar, respectively)
could render them.
The boys were extremely grateful to
Captain Hinchman and his staff, (es-
pecially the mess hall staff) for their
important part in the party's success.
Guests of honor were Captain and
Mrs. Burkhart, Captain Hinchman, Lt.
and Mrs. Reid, Lt. Lasker, Lt. Blair,
Lt. and Mrs. Boulduc, Lt. Mdcinsey and
Lt. Tracey. Lt. Lyman was the Master
of Ceremonies for the evening.

Possibly my few words may never reach

tion that, in my opinion would improve
the appearance of the Field.
That is, to discontinue the practice
of carelessly tossing cigarette butts
and matches over the grounds. After
all it's so very easy upon finishing a
cigarette to simply rip same down the
middle, scatter the shreds and roll the
paper between the thumb and index fin-
ger- all in about two seconds.
As for matches, when a match is
struck the box is always closer to the
person who struck it than is the ground.
At Fort Bragg (unless the new Army
has changed things around) the above
is compulsary. They seemed to have an
unwritten rule, "A place for every-
thing and everything in it's place.
That included trash as well as uniforms
and equipment. -Pfc. J. M. MacLaren
