The Tyndall Target receives material supplied by Camp News-
paper Service, War Dept., 205 E. 42nd St., N.Y.C. The credited
material may not be republished without permission from C.N.S.


THE NEW TARGET
This, as you must have noticed, is a new and dif-
ferent Target. We hope you like it.
We've added a lot of new features. We're trying
to get more news in the paper. We're going to use
more pictures henceforth. And we've enlarged the pa-
per size.
This, being the first new-style issue, was put out
only after a lot of perspiration had poured over the
staff's collective brow. There were numerous mechan-
ical problems which had to be solved. And so if you
find a few boners please bear with us until things are
running smoothly, which we believe will be soon.
We want to record the births and marriages and
deaths, the squadron parties, the promotions, the
sports events. And we hope to give you information
on what Tyndall Field graduates are doing in the war
theatres. We intend to print authoritative dope on
how new laws and regulations affect the G.I.
Some of the stuff that we will print, we'll con-
fess right now, will be swiped from other publica-
tions. We'll give the other publications full cred-
it, of course, but if we see a cartoon, a joke, or
something else that we think you'd like in another
camp paper we intend to "borrow" it for the Target.
As for our own stuff, we have several new, to the
Target, features to entertain you.
The long-popular "Taler" will continue with the
latest "dirt" about you and your fellow man, or woman
as the case may be.
Speaking of women, as who doesn't, we hope to toss
in a picture of a nice-looking one now and then.
If you're just a Pfc., we have given you an oppor-
tunity to raise hell with somebody. We have on our
staff P.M. Nickles, a nice guy who is just a private
and can't talk back to anybody. Nick will be on hand
bright and early Monday morning to receive all com-
plaints in his new job as whipping boy.
Seriously though, we earnestly invite your com-
ments, pro or con. If you don't like the new Target
or some particular feature of it, tell the editorial
staff about it. And if you do like it---we won't ob-
ject if you tell everybody about it.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: "Do
YOU OBJECT TO YOUR GIRL BACK
HOME GOING OUT WITH OTHER
MEN?"
THE ANSWERS:





ri" "




SGT. WILL-IM f. IlNFES, Signal
Corps Office: "I don't have
girl back home. But he said
if he did have one he wouldn't
object to her going out once
in a while.
... ...... --- ---


SGT. JAMES M. O'GRADY, Person-
nel Office: "No, I wouldn't
object. I don't think she ex-
pects me to sit around the
barracks all the time nor that
she would want me to sit at
home. "


S'SGT. FRANK HORN, Drafting De-
partment: "No! Wouldn't it
make a lot of difference if I
did? Besides I'd consider it
a compliment. "











S/SGT. GEORGE H. FOSTER, Signal
Office: "I wouldn't object to
her going out now and then to
a dance or accepting an invita-
tion to a party. "


This week's cover comes from
the voluminous scrapbook of
Sgt. Si lpchurch_ of the Tyn-
dall Field Base Photo Section.
The photogenic model is Miss
Jo Ellen Vickers, of the Pers-
onnel department. Miss Vick-
ers is a native of Panama City
and has been a civilian atta-
che at the post since June of
last year.

Antes

By BIIL PINNEY
Well, we've been through the
induction center, have comple-
ted our basic training and
have been given an assignment
by the Army. After 30 years
service we plan to retire if
they have made a soldier of us.
Our basic training sergeant
says it will take considerably
longer.
"If," the sarge told us at
Fort Eustis, "the Army had
just 1,000 guys like you we'd
lose this war."
'If,' we told the sarge at
Fort Eustis, 'the enemy didn't
have one man like you we would-
n't he at war.'
For that we done the manual
of arms with a mop for 3 days.
We started out in the artil-
lery and trained to fight as
infantrymen by day and anti-
aircraftmen at night. They
called us the "Moonlight Cav-
alry."
Now we are at Tyndall Field
and they tell us it's a Flex-
ible Gunnery School. Up at
Fort Eustis they took the at-
titude that only the men were
flexible.
To prove it, they strapped a
pack across our back and took
a window off our front. They
cut our gross tonnage from 188
to 156 and reduced our circum-
ference from 38 to 32. They
even had us touching the floor
with our hands without bending
our knees. They put corns in
our hands and took creaks out
of our joints.
And it is sure nice not to
have to wait for someone else
to tell you you need a shoe-
shine.

Girls to Be Soldier Guests at

Newly Improved Swim Spot

Plans for a gala formal opening on Sunday, May 2,
of Tyndall Field's bathingbeach, newly equipped with
bath houses, showers, athletic facilities, beach um-
brellas and other improvements, were announced today
by the Special Services Officer.
Under the direction of Lt. R.E. Hunn, the beach has
been made into a bathing spot which the SS Office swears is


-/ -. .. ";

This is an example of the
oulchritude that you'll see if
you visit the bathing beach
at its summer opening a week
from tomorrow. (The girl, in-
cidentally, is Miss Mary Helen
Monk, Signal Office).


USO Show at Post Theater May I


Six shapely, comely chorus
girls are one of the seven acts
of "The Fun Parade," ISO Camp
Show unit which will play at
the Post Theatre at 6:30 and
8:30 next Saturday. Admission
will be free.
"The Six Starlets," the sex-
tet of dancing lovelies, will
be spotted throughout the show.
They do acrobatic, toe precis-
ion and tap work.
There are 15 persons in the
show, touted as one of the
best the USO ever has put on
the road.
Freddie Stritt, famous for
his numerous changes of hats,
is the master of ceremonies.


Al Verdi and Dolorez are a
comedy team, Verdi actually a
fine cellist who appears in
ridiculous costumes, assisted
by glamour-girl Dolorez.
"Toys in Technicolor" is the
name of a clever puppet get,
with a routine charming and
riotous. Carroll & Dietrich,
the operators, are a couple of
Sjtterbugs.
Mary Ann Russell, an attrac-
tive brunette, is a singer.
Emmett Oldfield and Company,
who have just finished tours
with Bob Crosby and Charlie
Barnett, are a couple of acro-
bats who astonish with their

as good as the strip of sand
in front of 'Miami Beach's $35
a day Roney Plaza Hotel.
Bath houses with showers
have been built for men and
women. Diving facilities
are being constructed, and
beach umbrellas will be a-
vnilable.
There will be facilities for
volleyball, deck tennis, soft-
ball, vcal-hi, paddle tennis,
basketball, boxing and horse-
shoes. Footballs, a punching
bag, medicine balls and other
equipment will be available.
Lifeguards will have charge
of the equipment.
A week from tomorrow, a
few busloads of Victorettes
and Tyndallettes will leave
the USO Club in PC and come
to the field as guests of
the soldiers.
"Whether they like the visit
is up to you," the SS Office
said. "If they do like it,
they will return under their
own steam to lend their charm
to what might otherwise be a
comparatively dull Sunday.
"If anybody has an ideas to
produce more fun from our big
natural asset, tell it to Spe-
cial Service. A little enthu-
siasm, well-timed and planned,
should produce a beach right
in our backyard that will be
the nrlde of the Southeast.
"Special Service knows that
plenty of ideas have been miss-
ed in improving the beach. If
you're the guy that's got one,
drop over to Special Service
and talk it over. That's what
the government pays us for."

Canaries
If you've wondered why our
outfits called the "Canaries"
just attend next Friday's Rec
Hall dance. We'll be hosts,
with our most stunning boys as
lovely Earl Carroll Beauties.
If anyone wonders how such a
bevy of performers was accumu-
lated, here's how. At induct-
ion stations the men were un-
wise enough to give their hob-
bies such as singing, dancing,


"^/-f COLUMN--
"4ndon the first day of the week, Yary Magdelen cometh early,
when it was yet dark unto the sepulchre: and she saw the stone
taken away from the sepulchre. She ran therefore, and cometh
to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and
saith to them: they have taken away the Lord out of the sepul-
chre, and we know not where they have laid him.
"Peter therefore went out, and that other disciple, and they
came to the sepulchre. 4nd they both ran together, and that
other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepul-
chre. And when he stepped down, he saw the linen cloths lying:
but yet he went not in. Then cometh Simon Peter, following him,
and went into the sepulchre and saw the linen cloths lying. And
the napkin that had been about his head, not lying with the
linen cloths, but apart, wrapt up into one place. Then that
other disciple also went in, who came first to the sepulchre:
and he saw and believed. For as yet they knew not the script-
ure, that he must rise again from.the dead. The disciples
therefore departed again to their home.
"But Mary stood at the sepulchre without, weeping. Now as
she was weeping, she stepped down, and looked into the sepul-
chre: and she saw the two angels in white, sitting, one at the
head, and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been
laid. They say to her: Woman, why weepest thou? She saith to
them: Recause they have taken away my Lord; and I know not
where they have laid him.
"When she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Je-
sus standing; and she knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith
to her: Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? She
thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: Sir if thou hast
taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him: and I will
take him away. Jesus saith to her: Vary. She, turning, saith
to him: Pabboni (which is to say, Master). Jesus saith-to her:
do not touch me, for I am not yet ascended to my Father: But
go to my brethren, and say to them: I ascend to my Father and
to your Father, to my God and your God. Mary Magdalen cometh
and telleth the disciples: I have seen the Lord, and these
things he said to me. "

Major Miller spoke to the

the new dependents' ward and
the part that we as members of
the Women's Club will play.
When the training classes
for ward duty begin there will
be a special bulletin with all

Captain enjoyed the $40 fish

Mrs. Silva in the eye?..Wonde
why Major Miller's speech mad
Mrs. Tucker blush? Could be
Capt. Tucker knows...Mrs. Las-
ker certainly sports goodlook-
ing clothes now that she's re-
turned from New York...Anybody
can step on Mrs. DeTreville's
toes now. She won't minda bit,
they're Just stuffed with pa-
ger...We re glad to welcome
s. Shields &Mrs. Burgess in-
to the bowl league...We wish
to make a special welcome to
Mrs. Nimocks who was one of
the Targette originators..Mrs.
Nelson is back with us again
after getting a beautiful tan
in Miami...Anniversaries should
come around more often if they
were all celebrated as Lt. and
Mrs. Bailey did theirs.





Now that the Target's changed appearance, and the editors
promise no interference, the rhyming Taler has joined the staff.
We hope that we can stand the gaff of writing a column every
week so please forgive if they sometimes reek.
First, to erstwhile Lt. HILL, DON K., there's just one thing
we'd like to say. All the gang can hardly wait for you to set
the wedding date. Don't let her position make you afraid, you
can use the salary she gets paid.
Captain SINGLETON of volley ball fame will never again be
quite the same. He plays the game with all he's gpt, and be(
lieve me, brother, he's got a lot. But soon he won't be able
to play at all if they keep mistaking his head for a ball.
Captain 'GARDENER' BRUNNER has done it again by offering a
successful prayer for rain. We think that now he should tour
the land, since rainmakers are in great demand.
Mr. HOWEIL complains the PX is without a model he calls a
"Stylish Stout." Lt. AYIR
complains they can't get him
a model known as "Thoroughly
Thin." To Captain KEISER we 43
give a suggestion, one that
will also improve the two of-
ficers' digestion. Convince
the food ration board that
it's only fair to give Lt. AYLOR Mr. HOWELL'S share!
A parting shot before we go: A lot of our readers think they
know the name of the author of this sonnet. If you think it's
me, you're wrong, doggonit. The rumor is really quite unfoundl
ed, and was spitefully started by a gremlin we grounded.
*
The "Great One", S/Sgt. WILLIAM HAKEM of the Venturas, con-
tinued his bid for headline monopolization by inaugurating the
tipping system in the PX. His "friends" claim he ordered a
hamburger and coke and told the PXette to keep the change from
the dollar bill. (Or, service at any price!)
Two veteran squadron reporters for the Target are enjoying a
respite from their typewriters. Sgt. ED STRONG of the Cloud
Hoppers has taken off on furlough to Providence, R.I., and Cpl.
A.J. SNEAD, Bluebird live-wire, said goodbye to pals with
'traveling papers' in his hand.
Cpl. RICHARD PANASUK of Signal
says "tain't so," pointing to the
lone chevron that still adorns ,
his sleeve...And now that we have
both a laundry and a dry cleaner
on the post, the G.I.'s have
their choice of sliding into a T"t v
pair of khaki trousers with, or
without a shoe-horn.

after the War is ended is to
take a trip around the world.
JOE claims such a journey would
be educational. (Get a trans-
fer to the Navy, JOE, it'll be
cheaper.)
Whenever the fellows on the
line become tired, irritable,
or just generally disgusted,
they trip over to Air Corps
Supply where there are three
little "wrens" who do much to
,boost the morale...And it is
common belief around these here
parts that VAN BIAINE RUSSELL,
better known as "VAN BIUTO",
missed his vocation by a coun-
try mile in not establishing;
himself in the publicity de-
partment of the Air Corps ra-
ther than in the ground crew.

NEW HANGAR The hangar that
the Post Engineers
are now constructing is sched-
uled to be completed by the
first of June. Signs of activ-
ity during the past few weeks
have been most encouraging as
`the foundation is almost fin-
,ished and perhaps the hangar
itself will be completed ahead
of schedule.
The new hangar will relieve
the congestion at night line
inspections and also give the
boys protection from the cli-
matic conditions. (Beautiful
Florida!)

probably just Sgt. SIAUGHTER
trying to get some flying time
in on the squadron's new motor-
cycle.
It was a quiet night on the
fuel storage dump and the G.I.
guarding it was lost in dreams
of days in Brooklyn. When the
O.D. approached, he was chal-
lenged and advanced in the
proper manner, as has been done
hundreds of times before. After
the usual question of "How's
everything going?", the O.D.
asked, "Suppose you saw a bat-
tleship coming through the
woods over there, what would
you do?" "Change my brand of
liquor, Sir!", was the prompt
reply. The O.D. gulped "Car-
ry on," and beat a hasty re-
treat.

HEADQUARTERS Favorite pastime
of would-be hus-
bands here is house hunting.
Trying to find a room in this


locality .is iixe trying to
squeeze blood from a turnip.
And should you ever by some
mishap find a room it's equiv-
elant to finding four good
tires on your Christmas tree.

the subject 'check with ROBLEY

BARS? Master Sergeant PASS-
WATERS is a very busy
man these days. He's getting
all his papers in order before
sending them n with his appli-
cation for a commission. We
on the line feel that if anyone
can make it, he will. PASSWATERS

with the same branch of ser-
vice, and few are the parts of
the world he has not touched.

Congratulations from the boys,

believe it when
they were informed that calis-

(Even a respectable rooster
wouldn't crow that early in

haven't been any serious cas-

marked: "Boy, do I feel good!",
and then fainted.

ORDNOTES


T/3 Ja n B t St. A y
T/3 Jackson Bennett Sgt. Anthony Blimzik


Pictured above are the sergeants in charge of linking the
cal. .30 and .50 ammunition used in training the aerial gunners
at this Post. These men have under their supervision the ca).
.30 and .50 automatic linking machines that considerably lessen
the work now being done by the twenty men in this section of
the ammunition department.
The ammunition is brought from storage in sealed metal boxes.
The boxes are opened and the cartridges are removed from their
paper cases. As the cartridges are fed into the automatic or
hand operated linking machines, a tracer is injected with every
fifth round. In these linking machines,': the cartridges are
forced into metal links to form the 100 round, 50 round, or
other type belts desired by the Department pf Training. These
belts are then conveyed to the painting section for painting in
any or all of the eight possible colors.
The only relief these ammunition section boys get is when
notice arrives that a carload of ammunition already linked is
on the way. Sgt. "Blitz" Bliznik hails from Chicago and has
been with the Ordnance Company since May, 1942. "Blitz" is
also the big gun of the outfit's bowling team. T/3 Bennett is
a Charleston, South Carolina, boy, but at the present is resid-
ing in Panama City with Mrs. Bennett.
Among the other men in the ammunition section who are doing
exceptional work are T/4 Cappiello, and T/5's Leffel, Djubenski


-Sgts. Witham and Ponzio and Butzloff.

Hip, Hin, Hurrah! We final-
ly won the "E" Flag fellows,
now how about keeping it in
the squadron? Lt. HOGAN, ROB-
ERT J., extends congratulations
to the personnel for their fine
showing. Ever since these in-
spections have taken place
we've always scored over 905?
and what we've done once we
can always do again.
Sgt. GOIDWATER soloed nicely
for the officer's stag party
last week. His number was re-
ceived with great applause.
We're taking his word for it
because we weren't there.
Sgt. 'VOODY I.EIIER and T/Sgt.
RAY JESKE are "infanticinat-
ing"...Cpl. NOLAN was sweating
out his tugs at the last tech-
nical inspection. Keep worry-
ing like that, NOLAN, and yrl-
'll have to be screwing your
hat on...Ask T/Sgt. CHIIDFRS
about the scenery at the Peli-
can Park Ball Field...We have-
n't decided whether we should
call S/Sgt. SANFILIPPO "Blotto"
or "Josle". Anyhoo, he pulled
the swan act again last Satur-
day night. Wonder who got the
goose.
Sgt. SHAW reminds us that
Bond allotments have taken a


rise.


Nice going, men.
-Sgt. Ed Strong


White Flashes

A hearty welcome is extended
to ournew Engineering Officer,
Lt. L. HOOVER. Although he
hasn't made anyRepublican pro-
mises of two planes to every
crew chief, he did express his
desire to do everything possi-
ble to keep the boys happy as
heretofore, and the boys dis-
played their eagerness to co-
operate to the fullest.
Though Lt. FARGO is no long-
er connected with the squadron
in any official capacity, the
warm ties of friendship have
not been severed by any Special
Orders. His daily visits to
the outfit is the proof.
The social events in our out-
fit are worthy of front page
news in any morale builder pub-
lication. The affair at the
Dixie Sherman recently seemed to
be one of the things referred
to in "Why Don't We Do This
More Often?"
A vote of thanks is due to
Captain WTSEMAN and Lt. LUGO
for their wholehearted cooper-
ation, and to the arrangement
committee for their fruitful
efforts in making the affair a
success. -S/Sgt. Wm. Solomon

EM ARE WARNED NOT

TO WEAR G.C. MEDAL,

UNLESS AUTHORIZED
New Regulations for
Wearing Ribbon ,ot
In Effect Yet
Enlisted men are reminded
that they must not wear the
Good Conduct Medal unless it
has been awarded to them by
their CO's.
President Roosevelt's recent
order to revise the rules for
awarding the medal has not yet
been acted upon by the Army,
and until appropriate military
orders are issued its wearing
is unauthorized except under
the existing regulations.
When the new regulations are
issued, they will provide for
the medal to be awarded to en-
listed men "who on or after 27
August 1940 had or shall have
honorably completed 3 year's
active Federal military serv-
ice, or who after 7 December
1941 had or shall have honor-
ably served one year of active
Federal military service while
the U.S. is at war."
The information is from the
Army & Navy Journal.


Guardians
Our best wishes this week go
to Pfc. B. BREIAND who recently
acquired a deendendt-- a wife.
If this trend towards matri-
mony continues much longer the
bachelors in the squadron will
soon form a "Self Preservation
Club."
Felicitations to Sgt. EIMER
MORRIS, who became the papa of
a future WAVE or WAAC several
weeks ago...Cpl. KELIER seems
destined to be crowned the Tyn-

OUR MAN OF THE *EEK Is none
other than Sgt. HARRY BEIDEL
of the Gun Shop. Sgt. BEIDEL
knows his guns like MacArthur
knows his Japs. He's been In
the Army for a little over two
years, sharing that time be-

Panama City's new naval base
is scheduled to open some time
this month, but Panama City
has nothing on Tyndall Field.
Here at Tyndall, there is a
naval base that is all Army.
Ever since the flat sandy
wastes along Highway 98 mush-
roomed into an ultra-modern
busy air base, a small group
of G.I. sailors have manned a
fleet of crash boats, prepared
day and night to answer any
emergency on the waves invol-
ving aircraft. Only in the
last few weeks, however, has
the Tyndall Navy come of age.
With a new home, a new org-
anization, new equipment, and
added personnel, Tyndall's own
Navy now sails a salty fleet
of 20 craft; a far cry from
the original one. Its new
home, seen from the West Gate,
is a modernbarracks with built-
in mess hall and a three-slip
boat house alongside the 100
foot dock. This is the lair
of the QM boat company.
The Boat Company was activ-
ated on March 1st of this year,
with Colonel C.J. Moore as its
spiritual navigator, and Cap-
tain Herman Gundlach, Jr., as
Company Commander. Assisting
Captain Gundlach is First Ser-
geant R.L. Mills, who was trans-


matte r


ferred from Eglin Field in
the days when Tyndallwas still
in its infancy.
Sgt. Mills' original cadre
of nine men, most of whom ser-
ved on the docks and boats
since January of 1942, has been
joined by new personnel chosen
by the War Department for their
nautical experience. Along
with these soldiers, there are
several civilians, familiar
with the coastal and local wa-
terways, who man several of
the craft.
Many of the enlisted men of
the Company are former sea-
farers. Pvt. Sam Burns sailed
the waters of Boston Harbor,
Cpl. Harry Remmert operated
small craft in the naval ser-
vice, and Pvt. Ancona went to
sea for the Coast Guard's Geo-
detic Survey.
The Company's equipment, from
a 104 foot rescue yacht to
speedy swamp gliders, is of
the most modern and efficient
obtainable. Its men have the
experience or are being train-
ed in capacities that would be
the envy of any true sailor.
The wary pilots who fly the
waters of St. Andrews Bay and
the Gulf may rest at ease with
a life-buoy like Tyndall's Boat
Company on guard.


0 HAPPY DAY!
Pfc. William C. Norris, who
has been with the Public Re-
lations Office for six months,
received an "age-limit" dis-
charge this week and left for
New York city to. resume his
advertising and publicity pro-
fession.
Norris will work in the pub-
licity division of the Treas-
ury Dept. War Savings Staff in
New York.

Very satisfactory progress
is being made on the Squadron

men are needed to help out.
So far, the work has been done

There is still much to be done

hour or so of their time are
asked to report daily, except
Saturday and Sunday, to Sgt.

Officers
Despite lack of practice, the
Officers baseball team showed
definite promise last Wednesday
night as it easily trounced
the highly touted PC Pelicans,
7-4, at Pelican Park.
After building up a 6-0 lead
in the first four frames, the
Officers took things easy, with
the result the Pels managed to
tally four un-important runs
in the closing innings.
Lt. Stan Drongowski is busy
arranging an attractive sched-
ule for his team and announced
that the starting lineup is
far from settled. Any Officer
on the field possessing base-
