A TRIBUTE
A recent issue of the Target contained a descrip-
tion of the generosity and cooperativeness of two
sergeants who donated and installed an excellent
public address system in the Recreation Hall. That
such an unusual gesture is worthy of commendation
obvious. The contribution of those two men may
serve as a concrete example of fine spirit.
There are, on this field, several other men whose
contributions' toward providing more recreation for
their fellow soldiers has been of equal value.
Their work has been in the abstract but its worth
to the field is of great importance.
We mention but five men today, but we feel that
additional names will be newsworthy in the near
future.
Sgts. Boileau, Leon, Pullman, Reinitz and Pvt.
Paquin have been doing a real job for Tyndall Field
for the past few months. They appear in the Special
Service Office during their free time, daily, seek-
ing jobs to do so that the entire field may benefit.
No job seems too small or too big for them. These
men are constantly ready to step into any job that
is requested of them. Regardless of the type of
the task, their enthusiastic willingness to comply
is most gratifying.
These five men appear to have the interest of the
field constantly in mind, as is shown by the many
worthwhile suggestions they have presented to the
Special Service Office. Perhaps they will never be
able to point to an article and state that they do-
nated or built it, but they have given and built a
lot in general morale that has been of inestimable
value to the men of the field.
A PILTP' S REPLY TO THE "GUNNER'S VCW"
(The following poem, answering the famous
'Gunner's Vow' printed in small type, was
written by Mrs. R.M. Smith, Jr., wife of a
Tyndall Field pilot.)
I wished to De a pilo.
You may call me just a chauffeur,
And you along with me
But let me make this clear:
B ut if we all were pilots
Your life depends upon "James'" hands,
Where would the Air Force be?
A flier without fear.
It takes GUTS to be a gunner,
It takes BRAINS to be a pilot,
To sit out in the tail,
Ready judgment, steady hand.
When the Messerschmits are coin'
The plane keeps humming through the sky,
And the slugs begin to wail.
The pilot's in command,
The pilot's just a chauffeur,
The gunner's just a watchdog,
It's his job to fly the plane,
Though that's important too.
But it's we who do the fighting
Let no man mock the other's job,
Though we may not get the fame.
We all have work to do.
If we all must be gunners,
The crew must work together
Then let us make this bet,
And we'll win through never doubt--
We'll be the best damn' gunners
But don't call me just a chauffeur,
That have left this station yet!
Or, I swear, I'll "wring you outi"


PRAYER IN TIME OF WAR
God our Father, all-merciful, and almighty, look down on
this strife-torn world to grant us and all nations a true,
righteous peace! Because of our multiplied sins we are not
worthy to ask Thee for this blessing; yet we come before Thee,
our Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, our only Savior,
and, trusting in His blood-bought pardon, beseech victory,
according to Thy will, peace according to Thy love.

We therefore ask Thee to destroy the evil plans of selfish,
unbelieving men who promote aggression and seek personal or
national profit through bloodshed. Restrain all fleshly
hatreds and evil passions. Direct our thoughts along the path
of love!

Particularly do we entreat Thee: Protect all Christian
young men called to the colors, who daily meet dangeron land,
in the air, on the sea! Keep them in Christ! Show them that
they fight not only against powerful enemies from without,
but also against treacherous foes from within, andteach them
that with Jesus as their Savior they have His assurance, "Lo,
I am with you always, even unto the end of the world!" If it
be Thy gracious purpose, preserve their dear ones at home, and
when the conflict is over, bring these defenders of the nation
back to their families, safe in body and sound in soul!

Hear us, andin the name of our Savior, "the Lamb of God
which taketh away the sin of the world, have mercy upon us!
.Grant us Thy peace!. Amen.

STRICT UNIFORM
REGULATIONS

ISSUED

But Low-Cut Shoes to Be
Allowed at Bowling
Alleys, Post Dances

New directives pertaining
to the correct dress and con-
duct of enlisted personnel and
setting forth regulations now
being enforced by military po-
lice, who are inspecting men
leaving and arriving at the
Post, were issued last week.
Directives were received by
the Commanding Officer fram both
the Flying Training Command and
the AAF Southeast Training Cent-
er, and the information contain-
ed in them was relayed on to unit
co landers and department heads
who were told to see that the men
under them complied with the
rules.
The regulations said in part:
'Enlisted personnel will be per-
mitted to wear only items of
t uniforms 'as issued' or identical
in material and design to those
issued....No deviation from these
requirements is authorized.'
The directive listed 11 de-
ficiences which have been noticed
among the men and cited them for
correction.
One was the wearing of low-cut
or other non-issue shoes. An
official source implied that such
shoes may be worn at the Post
bowling alleys, where rubber
soles are prohibited, or at
dances on the post. But no pro-
visions were made for downtown
wear by enlisted men who may at-
tend a dance there and have only
rubber-soled GI footwear. Low-
cut shoes which were issued by
the Quartermaster also may be
worn until they are no longer
serviceable, but the PX has been
instructed to discontinue the
sale of low-cut shoes to enlist-
ed men.
r The directives spelled "moth-
balls" for the "zoot suits" made
of gabardine and other light-
weight, non-regulation material
which many enlisted men had pur-
chased.


Suggestion Box is

New Addition

At Rec Hall

Captain Owen Freeman, Special
Service Officer, announced that
the little used mail box on the
front porch of the Rec Hall will
be turned into a suggestion box
for improvement or additions to
Special Service activities on
the post.
The captain believes that
through this new source many
suggestions will be forthcoming,
and he particularly stressed
that the Special Service Office
has a large fund and is ready
and anxious to spend money for
any facility or activity which
will be of recreational value to
a large number of men. However,
the captain added that this fund
cannot be used to the advantage
of any particular group: what-
ever is provided through this
source must be available to
every man on the field.

mer director of flying, has been
appointed station Air Inspector,

nounced Wednesday. Major Kevan
succeeds Captain Charles Shearn

ivities which are inspected.

"The primary objective of all
air inspectors is to improve
training and technical effi-
ciency. "

Lanesville, Ohio, and Gooding,
Idaho, is listed as the home of
Lt. Finney.

ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION

fire" by the S.S. Office is a
proposed round table discussion
to be held at the Rec Hall in
the near future. principal par-
ticipants in the discussion will
be Sgts. Wright and Coburn, be-
medaled gunners who recently re-
turned from combat.

TWO SQUADRONS AT TOP
IN TWO DIVISIONS OF

SALE STANDINGS

98 Pct. of Canaries Hold
Policies; Average Gun-
nermaker's $8,145

A report showing the Can-
aries and the Gunnermakers
leading the GI insurance pa-
rade as of June 1 was released
this week by Lt. George Iasker,
Bond and Insurance Officer.
In the Canaries, 98 percent
of the men have taken out a
GI policy to lead the field in
the percentage of policies is-
sued.
The Gunnermakers top the list
in the amount of the average
policy. The average Gunnermak-
ers' policy amounts to $8,145.
A graph showing the standings
of the squadrons is reproduced
on this page.
Compared to the previous fig-
ures, announced as of May 1, the
Canaries leaped from seventh
place to first in the percentage
of men holding policies, the GM's
advanced from 19th place to sixth
and the Bluebirds from 15th to
seventh.

department, the Gunnermakers
rose from sixth place to first,
the Bluebirds from 11th place
to second--with an average of
$7,696--and the Canaries from
seventh place to third with an
average of $7,638.


WAR DEFT. SEEKS TO
STAMP OUT "ROUND-
ROBIN" LETTERS
Warns They May Give Vital
Military Information
To the Enemy

A concerted effort to stamp out
the circulation of "round robin,"
cr group "newsletters," among
Army personnel is currently being
made by the War Department to
prevent vital military Informa-
tion from reaching enemy agents.
The "round-robin" might be
termed a third cousin of the
once-popular chain letter.
It usually is originated by the
"office gang" back home, sent to
a former employee, now in service,
who reads its'several communica-
tions, adds one of his own, then
forwards the letter to the ser-
viceman whose name appears next
on the accompanying list.
Before the mailing cycle Is
.completed, a complete file of
vital military information will
have been compiled.
War Department studies of such
letters reveal that the techni-
calities of training of multiple
units, specific duties of indi-
viduals, future movements, exact
locations of individuals and un-
its, and the technical aspects of
our own and enemy weapons are
freely discussed.
The War Department pointed out
that If one of these letters
should reach the hands of an en-
emy agent, it would give him, in
one single convenient volume the
complete outline of a large-scale
troop movement, or details of the
development of new and secret
combat techniques.

Gone are the days when we
could look at the signature of a
Gunnermaker squadron scribbling
and come across "Blankenship, "
"Budway," or "Taylor." The pres-
ent GM reporter is an anonymous.
"Greely" for all practical pur-
poses. However, never in the
short history of the Target has
its staff been exposed to such a
barrage of abuse as is now being
directed at it by the GM's Peek-:
er, the name he hau chdsen to
guard against recognition and to
insure anonymity.
Most of his tirades have been
as the result of editing his
material by us, including de-
letion of some items. While
some of his complaints are justi-
-iable, especially when we acci-
dentally omitted his entire col-
umn several weeks ago, we must
amit that his efforts thus far
have not equalled those of the
better scribes from other squad-
rons.
However, if for nothing else,
we admire the Peeker for his per-
severence. He still keeps on
writing--both his scribblings
and vituperative letters to the
"management." We hope that some
day soon his literary efforts
will take a turn for the better
because such perseverence should
not be denied and neither should
the hope and confidence being


placed in him by fellow Gunner-
makers.

Among the many fishing parties.
that must have been enjoyed this
past week end, we are particular-
ly regretful of having missed the
one which Captain McCullough
took. We don't want to spoil a
detailed description of this trip
which appears elsewhere in this
week's issue, but we understand
that the Captain turned around in
his boat to reach for a sandwich
and when next seen was holding
said sandwich four inches above.
the water. (The only part of the
captain that was visible, how-
ever, was the hand that was hold-
ing the sandwich--the rest was
under water.

And under the heading of "Once
in a Lifetime!" must certainly be
listed Sunday's Rec Hall reopen-
ing. It was a combination of a
GI's dream and a PXette's night-
mare.
The only untoward incident to
reach our ears was the report
on tne private who was forced to
take three bottles of beer and
two cigars, and when he found'he
couldn't give them away, finish-
ed the brews, smoked the cigars
and left the Rec Hall just be-
fore the explosion.
We went back again Monday night


to look at the hall under less
crowded conditions and we are
convinced that empty seats on
buses headed for town will be
more common now that the white
elephant on the Gulf has been
transformed into a busy bee.
*
Lt. Col. Eades and Lt. McKin-
sey recently returned from a.
flight to Fort Worth and on their
way back, we understand, their
theme song, 'Deep in the Heart
of Texas,' almost became a real-
ity.

As indisputable proof that the-
age of miracles isn't over, we
point out that the 69th won the
E flag for last Saturday's in-
spection.
*
Cpl. Ray Barrette is back from
his somewhat extended furlough.
He refuses to commit himself as
to whether EVERYHING is still
under control.
The only matter that causes us
to lift our eyebrow is that let-
ters are beginning to arrive ad-
dressed to 'SGT. Ray Barrette'--
and that not only takes the cake,
but also permits the cockroaches
on the table to eat the crumbs.

A Waac auxil iary was $2

they would give a dollar bill

The honors fell to Auxiliary

in Tyndall's WAAC detachment,
who gave a snappy salute to the
two officers as they drove by
her in a car.
The two officers stopped the
car and handed the surprised

SHAW FIELD RECORD MEANS
NOTHING TO MAJ. KEVAN
Major William P. Kevan, Tyndall
Field Air Inspector, has his
fighting gloves on as the result
of a headline in the May 29 issue
of the Training News reading
"SHAW FIELD SHIP ACHIEVES RECORD
2003 HOURS;"
The headline appeared above a
story originating at Sumter, S.
C., and related how basic trainer
S-40 was credited unofficially
with that many hours in the air.
"We feel like they're just get-
ting 'broken in' at 2,000 hours",
Major Kevan said. "Virtually
every AT-6 on Tyndall Field has
flown more than the renowned re-
cord set by Shaw Field."

no time in seeking out talent
for his proposed swing stand.
Already organized is a drum,
and bugle corps which made its
first public appearance at re-
treat Friday night. The members
of the corps have been training
under Sgts. Wilson, Henderson
and Brandenburg of the Post
Band.
Construction work on the new
combination Chapel and Rec Hall
for the colored boys is almost
completed and Mr. Missal be-

INSTRUCTORS' COURSE IN AUTOMOTIVE CARE,

OPERATION STARTED BY ORDNANCE DEPT,


In an attempt to correlate in-
struction In automotive mainten-
ance and operation, Maj. Sam
Mitchell, Ordnance Officer, has
activated a course for instruct-
ors at Tyndall Field. With R.L.
Booth as chief instructor, the
school this week graduated 10
instructors from the week-long
course that included instruct-
ions in concise and effective
teaching methods and training.
In the graduating class were
S/Sgt. John Harrlngton, of the
Department of Training; Sgt.
Carmen C. LaSalvia, of the Medi-
cal Detachment; T/4th Leo pe-
chik, Guard Squadron; and Pvts.
John Griesman and I. Miezen,
from the ordnance Department;
Pvt. Wiggins, of the Department
of Training; Fred Hentschke,
truchmaster of the Quartermaster
Motor Pool. Tobe Gay, employee
of the Sub-Depot and Mr. Tharp,
of post Engineers, also com-
lDeted the class and were among


those receiving certificates of
proficiency.
Aiding Booth as assistant in-
structor is pfc. Paul Zall, of
the Quartermaster Motor Pool.
Booth has based his course on
that offered at the Ordnance
Base School, San Antonio, Texas,
from which he has recently re-
turned. He is the automotive
technical advisor of the Ord-
nance Garage, with more than 25
years of experience in automotive
work behind him. A resident of
Palm Beach, Booth before being
appointed to Tyndall was super-
intendent of one of the largest
maintenance shops in southwest-
ern Florida.
The instructors course, held
inaspecially constructed class-
room near the magazine area, em-
phasized job plan and teaching
methods, including the various
aspects of instruction problems;
especially those applying to the
instruction of drivers in auto-
motive preventative maintenance.


Plans End Trainirg Officer, dis-
cloed this week.
A n3w AAF regulation requires
that tests be given periodically
to determine the physical fit-
ness of AAF personnel.
The tests to be given are des-
cribed in the regulation, and
consist of a battery of three
items--sit-ups, pull-ups and a
300-yard shuttle run. The test
is applicable to all age groups.
Designed to measure the physi-
cal fitness of individuals and
to measure the effectiveness of
the physical training program,
the tests are to be given to
students sometime during the last
two weeks of their training and
to permanent party personnel 'on
or about the following dates:
February 15, May 15, August 15
and November 15.'
Cards will be kept for each
individual, recording his scores
in the tests and showing his im-
provement from one date to the
next.
For the "sit-up* tests, the
individual will lie on the grmnd,
hands behind his head with fin-
gers interlaced, and with a part-
ner holding his legs at the
ankles. "The subject then lifts
his trunk upward touching his
right elbow to the left knee and
then lowers the trunk so that the
head touches the ground. He con-
tinues without rest.... alternat-
ing the left elbow to the right
knee and the right elbow to the
left knee." He scores one point
for each sit-up.
"Pull-ups" require the subject
to chin himself on a horizontal
bar, receiving one point for each
pull-up. "He is not permitted to
kick, to swing or to rest," the
regulation states.
The shuttle run involves run-
ning back and forth over a lane
60 yards long and six feet wide,
rounding stakes at each end of
the lane. The runner, the regu-
lation states, 'should pace the
race to finish in an 'all-out'
state.*
The regulation states that "if
satisfactory results are not ac-
complished, as shown by test re-
sults, the physical fitness pro-
gram will be re-evaluated with
respect to time, physical activ-
ities program, facilities, equip-
ment, health conditions
and health practices."


MARKER BEING BUILT

AT FIELD ENTRANCE
A 30 foot long marker which
will display the Air Forces in-
signia with the words Tyndall
Field is being erected just in-
side the main entrance of the
gunnery school.
The work is in charge of Capt.
Charles F. Brunner, landscape
engineer. It has not been de-
cided whether sea shells will be
used or just what the type of
the marker will be. The ins'g-
nia, similar to the sleeve patch,
will be to feet in diameter,

NEWS FROM THE
D~~~ A-H-TNAL AO


Squadron D

Six men who have been stationed
in Dutch Giana on the coast of
South America for the last 18
months have reported to this squad-
ron for aerial gunnery training.
The men, all of whom have had
three years service in the AAF, are
Sgts. W. Mortimer of Dayton, Ohio;
F. Lundstrom and J. Vaughn of
Gaiy. Ind.. and Pvts. L. McAllister of
SMonsen. Pa., F. Knight of Endicott,
N. Y., and L. Dillow.
Their composite story of life in
their former base follows:
"Our base was a small island, noth-
ing but sand surrounded on all sides
by the dense jungle. The tempera-
ture on the runways averaged 135
degrees, and 'there ain't no shade.'
Wander into the jungles for 100 y.rds
and a searching party would have to
go out for you. The food was all
dehydrated, and the water strongly
chlorinated. For entertainment, we
had a post theatre and when we
left the USO was just about finding
us with their traveling shows. We
had a nice non-corn club and a fair
PX. A swimming pool and new
theatre were on the way when we
left."
"For feminine companionship, one
couldn't be choosy. The white wom-
en were practically non-existant, al-
though those who wore bars were
sometimes fortunate: The rest of the
outfit had to rely on the friendliness
of the natives."
Asked how Tyndall looked to them,
without hesitation they replied:
"Brother, if you didn't have any milk
or fresh vegetables for 18 months
you'd sure like the chow. And bar-
acks! Man, what privacy after
sleeping with 40 other GI's in a pre-
fabricated hut, and latrines with hot
water right in the building."
What they like best, though, is
that after successful completion of
the gunnery course, they will have
the opportunity to get their long-
awaited furloughs and then a crack
at the D N B.



Squadron C


For the last week, Sgt. L. H.
eorge-better known as "Grandpa"
-has been waddling around like a
duck that has hit high center. Grand-
pa will tell you that the heat rash
doesn't hesitate to throw a low
punch. Moral: Eat your salt tab-
lets.
A man who sweats should, normal-
ly take one salt pill per meal-so the
authorities say-but the boys in the
squadron have been taking two pills
per dose in order to compensate for
the extra sweating in the chow lines.
Fiery-eyed little Sgt.'T. J. Allan.
who has a short head of hair as red
as a rookie's sunburned nose, had a
little difficulty in turret maintenance
this week. Desiring that the instruc-
tor repeat a phrase, he blurted out;
"Hey, bud, come again, will you?"
What's the definition for fixing a
crack ?" Upon being straightened
out on the question, Allan scratched
his head. "Aw, hell!" he said, "I've
known that since 10 B. C. I didn't
get what you was driving at." He
started to chew his ever present
chewing gum contentedly. "Well,
what the blazes do you mean B. C.?"
the instructor queried. "Oh, that?
That's Before Conscription!"


BETTER BUCKLE DOWN, BOYS
This little written dissertation is directed solely
to the aerial gunnery students now at Tyndall Field,
and it's a bit of sage advice that all of you had
better heed if you ever want to kiss your sweetheart
again.
Reports have reached the Target that most of you
students seem to think you're at Tyndall for a lark--
and that, as a whole, you're just a great big bunch
of lazy loafers.
Now that may sound cute but actually it is anything
but cute. It's a downright shame and downright is a
much milder adjective than properly should be used.
You men are American citizens. You are a part of
America's armed forces. As members of the Army Air
Forces it has become your duty to undergo aerial gun-
nery training, and you should realize your responsi-
bility and assume your task as any good soldier
should obey an order.
It is common knowledge that a lot of horse-play--
too much of it--goes on in the classrooms of Tyndall
Field.
It costs thousands of dollars to give each of you
the training course you are now taking. It is a
properly constructed training course as has been
proved by the merit of the gunners it has produced.
Many Tyndall graduates have flamed to glory shooting
down Axis planes.
Your training here is the first phase of the edu-
cation the Army Air Forces are striving to give you
so that you will be a worthwhile gunner. If you
don't get those rudiments here then you'll have
trouble assimilating the later advanced features of
the training.
When your advanced training is completed, you will
be assigned--in all likelihood--as a member of a
bomber crew. You will man one of its .50 calibre.
machine guns. The safety of the lives of other
members of the crew as well as your own life will
depend upon your knowledge and skill.
A mechanic whose mind isn't on his job isn't much
good as a mechanic. You men won't be such hot gun-
ners if you don't buckle down and make a more serious
effort to absorb what is being offered to you here.
Frankly, the worry about those of you who are try-
ing to fool your way through the course here isn't so
much for your own safety.. We're thinking about those
other lives you will endanger--maybe murder--if you
fail to know what to do and how to do it in the emer-
gencies you certainly will face sometime in the not
too far future.
It is quoted from high authorities that aerial gun-
ners will win the war, for without them our bombers


could never accomplish their missions.
Yes, you'd better buckle down, boys.


Squadron F


Squadron F men already are sweat-
ing out air-to-air firing, the para-
mount test before graduation. Some
of the boys have had some close
calls, but they're in the groove now.
The rumor of a squadron party has
kept them plugging, too. By the
way, that party is not a rumor any
longer. Plans are already laid for a-
big "toot." Several of the more
"rusty" members were seen at the
Rec Hall Sunday limbering up their
elbows, so it is expected that every-
one will be in fine fettle by the big
night.


while he was on his way home on
furlough, he set his hair on fire try-
ing to light a cigarette. Then he prac-
tically gave himself a concussion

The uncertainties of life are many
-however, we at "F" are always
sure of one thing. Every day that
telephone is going to ring (it's usual-
ly about 5:30) and a sweet feminine
voice is going to ask, "Is Sgt. Foster

Kadet Kapers


The first session on the skeet range
was dominated by sore shoulders. I,
for one, had a big six out of 25 blasts
from that infernal cannon. Alibi .
raised in Brooklyn, where a gun is'a
concealed weapon.
As a result of a purge of the ar-
tists, 10 of our boys are enjoying
their leisure time in the vicinity of
their barracks. (Plus one week of
latrine policing.) Think of the mon-
ey they'd' save. (What money?)
Cadet Gardner, although in his
home state is still 650 miles from
his home in Key West.
A/C Hafer, formerly of the 104th
Cavalry of Pennsylvania, who re-
turned from furlough with a four-
inch gash in his cranium, claimed he
fell off a horse. From the comments
on his saxophone playing, his scalp is
again in imminent danger of being
c eased. Either his sax must go or
his roommate A/C Hall will go .
to section 8.
I nominate A/C "Shorty" H. under
son to sit in on the "Inforrnatior
Please" 'program. He received 100
per cent on the first week's exalmina-
tion. He missed out on his second
with only a 99. What's the matter,
Henderson? Got a blonde on your
mind?

Squadron B

Squadron B dood it again. For the
second time in four weeks. Yes, we
won the inspection Saturday with a
new high of 97 per cent, thanks to
the cooperation of Ist/Sgt. A. J. Nel-
son, barracks chiefs Sgts. Bob Steele,
Marty Tobolsky, Bron Tuzin and Vi-
Domieka and, of course, our potential
gunners without whom this would
not have been possible. In fact, Sat-
urday was a big day all around for
us. Lt. Bert A. Steen, who has been
attached to squadron B for quite
some time in various capacities, was
Made our new CO. He already has
done much for the squadron and its
instructors and we are really looking
forward' to a successful career under
his guidance.
Cpl. Bob Allard at this time would
like it made known that he stands
ready and willing to advise any mem-
bers of this squadron in matters con-
cerning romance and such stuff. Of-
ficially he will be known as the "Miss
Beatrice Fairfax of squadron B." As
soon as he chooses one of the three
damsels that have been chasing him
of late (so he claims) he will start
editing his "Advice to the Lovelorn."
. "Be kind to your four-bearing
friends for a dog may be somebody's
mother," or "love me, love my dog,"
is the battle cry of our first sergeant.
As soon as "Muggsy" learns to blow
a whistle he will be promoted from
CQ checker-upper to chief clerk .
What now, Sgt. Benz? The new or-
der is here. Zoot suits with real
pleats are definitely out for the du-
ration.

Boss: 'No, I'm afraid you won't
do.'
Stenographer: 'Did I say I

A PERSONALITY: Our top-kick,
Ist/Sgt. Willcut, is an army man
from way back. He's in his eighth
year. He's served from Tyndall to
Honolulu and has at times shown
preference for the hoss cavalry. He
rules with an iron hand, but the boys
write him back after they leave and
thank him for setting them straight.
He'll give you a scare with his gruff
voice when he answers the phone, but
he really doesn't mean it. Of one
hing he is convinced-uniforms were
'fiever made for women. (He's real-
ly sweating out that Waac in the or-
derly room!). He likes to hunt asnd
fish, but usually doesn't have time'
for it takes his job too seriously.
He lives in PC with Mrs. Willcut and
two little Willcuts. The future? He's
an army man-he'll stay in the ser-,

Squadron I


i this week ends up a swell
course for all of our future
combat crewmen from this 8quad-
ron which gives us all a little
more pride In ourselves and our
branch of the service. However,
the six weeks course is only
another small item in the Army
careers of several of the boys.
T/Sgt. Errico had lots of fly-
ing time, on flying patrols in
South America and the Carribean
sector, before coming here for
gunnery prior to his assignment
with a bombardment group. T/Sgt.
Letus Smith entered the Army a
few years ago via the radio way,
spending a couple of years at
Ellington Field, Tex., teaching
cadets the mystery of radio.
Our two Boston boys, Sgt. Fer-
retti and Cpl. Newell, were with
the Armored Forces upon start-
ing their Army life three years
ago at Fort Devens. Of course
no one could forget the In-'
'fantry with Sgt. Stuart around
as it still is his first love,
just as it was three years ago.
(By the way, Stuart thinks they
should add the AT-6A to the Air-
craft Recognition course or may-
be it was the two tow target
pilots who suggested it.)
Some of the fellows still
prefer to talk about their civ-
ilian life instead of Army car-
eers and we sort of envy the ex-
periences of---Jimmy Byrnes dir-

When the pilot of a plane needs a radio he usually
needs it badly and only when it doesn't work does he
realize just how vital such a piece of equipment is.
Airplane radios must be kept in perfect condition
at all times. And keeping them in that condition is
only one of many vital jobs of the Post Communica-
tions Office.
In addition to maintaining radios in planes the
communications office maintains equipment in crash
boats operated by the Quartermaster Department, in
the range estimation range, in crash trucks and even
keeps up a two way set in the crash ambulance.
The present efficient organization which is post
Communications began back in March of 1942. At that
time, Lt. Andrew J. Russo reported here as post com-
munications officer. That same day a master ser-
geant, oneMaurice Berthaume, also reported for duty.
Then Sgt. Berthaume is now a captain and recently
left Tyndall Field for another station.
At the time Lt. Russo reported here there were on-
ly three planes on the field. Since then the com-
munications office has kept abreast of the growth of
Tyndall Field.
When Lt. Russo reported there was no radio shop on
the post and little equipment. Sgt. Berthaume was
made non-commissioned officer in charge. He and Lt.
Russo and a skeleton force went to work. They set
up a radio shop, installed equipment in the flight
tower and transmitters three miles away, and in-
stalled remote control equipment which permits cut-
ting on and off the transmitters from the tower.
In addition the communications staff installed a
radio school with Lt. Wilford Stapp as officer in
charge. The school was opened in March of 1942 and
continued for one year, turning out four classes.
practical radio maintainance, operating and code was
taught. (Lt. Stapp is now post communications off-
icer at Buckingham Field, Ft. Myers, Fla.)
When it was organized the communications section
was divided into squadrons but now operates more ef-
ficiently under two group communication sections.
The organization works with the Line Maintainance
Hangar and Signal sub-section of the 86th Sub-Depot,
which also maintains radio equipment. The organiza-
tions maintain a joint radio shop. The combined
shop was a project by Lt. Russo, Capt. Noble and
Major Bryan to conserve equipment, and during the
eight months it has been in operation has worked very
satisfactorily.
There have been cases in which radio played a vital
part, in fact was responsible for the saving of lives
at Tyndall Field. Instructions were given to men in
disabled airplanes which saved them from a crash
landing. And in the case of accident it is respon-
sible for dispatching aid to the scene and in making
reports from the scene of accidents which assist in
treatment of victims.
An almost unsung outfit has been the radio communi-
cations department. gut it is vital to operations
of the field and to the safety of the flying per-
sonnel.

get dated May 29, 1943, there is a
picture of an AT-6A and a very nice
looking "chick"-but the Target
made a boner. How? Take a look
at the airplane-now tell me, did you
ever see an AT-6A with the step, the
carburetor air scoop or the stencil of
the type, model and series ON THE
RIGHT SIDE OF THE AIRPLANE?
Here at Apalach all our AT-....A's
have the markings on the left side,
as are the steps. Perhaps the photo
section made the boner. Anyhow, the
photograph was made from the right
side facing the airplane, but they
couldn't get it to fit the cover right
so they had to switch it around. Get
on the ball, boys!
(Editor's note: Several phone
calls have been received concerning
the apparent error committed by the
staff on the cover of the May 29th
Target, to say nothing of the numer-.
ous oral criticisms-and as a full ex-
planation we offer the following
facts: The photograph was taken by
able Sgt. Si Upchurch, who was in
all probability too busy concentrating
on getting a good picture to keep in
mind which corner of the page Miss
Temple's face would be in.
(When the time came to line up
the photograph with the front page
titles, the titles covered Miss Tem-
ple's visage. However, the "on the
ball" reproduction staff reversed the
negative so the desired results could
be obtained and the figure of Miss
Temple would not be denied to the
men of Tyndall and Apalach.)

Our squadron had a pretty good
turnout at the Recreation Hall Sun-
day. Even Sgt. Michael was there
so it must have been a good time
had by all.
I see where Sgt. Thurman is back'
from school and in full swing again.
Give them a little time and he and
Sgt. Thomas will take over Pvt. Mc-
Carty's job in the day room. That's
where most of their time is spent.
Sgt. Nick Russo isn't doing so bad
'with his bowling. Just keep that
up, Nick, and we'll take that league
like nothing.

Knock down his planes in

The limitless skies my border,
The ocean deep I rorn,
The mountain tops and the

Of these I have made my home.

And I ride aloft in my chariot
Deep into the enemy's lands,
And I guard its precious cargo'
From the guns of their roving
bands.

I'll see the ship home safely,
Let the foe strike if he dare,
For I know my guns and their
power,
I've earned the "wings" that

ed out the QM athletes to take
top honors in Sunday's track and

Alderette, who was the winner
of the recent cross-country run,
placed first in the 220 yard
dash and running broad jump and
second in the mile run.
Curtis, with a "first" in the
50 yard dash and a "second" in
the 100 yard dash, along with
Faulkner and Worden also con-
tributed greatly to the Cloud
Hopper victory.
Cpl. Charles Ames, a gunner
from Squadron A, gave a good ac-
count of himself by taking the
100 yard dash, placing second in
the 50 yard run, fourth in the
running broad jump event and
fifth In the high jump.
Over forty-five GI's were en-
tered in the various events, re-
presenting ten different squad-
rons.

509ers KEEP SLATE CLEAN

IN OFFICERS' LEAGUE

By taking three in a row from
the Quartermaster pin men the
509'ers kept their slate clean
and cohtlnued to lead the six
team league with a record of 6
wins and no losses.
Also tied for top honors are
the 508 bowlers who won three
by forfeit from the Post Ex-
change keglers.
A triple victory over Ordnance
enabled the 502 team to remain
in third place. Lt. Lugo of the
502'ers took the evening's scor-
ing honors with a high of 225 for
a single game and 614 for the
series.


GUNNERMAKER BOWLING

TEAM SWEEPS SERIES

TO REMAIN ON TOP
paced by Al Loudis, the Gun-
nermaker keglers swept their
three-game series with Squadron
C to remain in first place by a
1 game margin. The Quartermaster
pin men kept the race close with
a triple win over a mediocre Can-
ary squad. The latter team has
lost most of its stars through
transfers and D. S.
Meanwhile, close behind the
QM's are the Cloud Hoppers and
69th keglers with records of 9
wins against 3 defeats each.
The C.H.'s kept their position
by virtue of a two out of three
victory over the faltering Me-
dics. A clean sweep of their
series with the Bluebirds boost-
ed the 69th from fifth to a third
place tie.
What might be classed as the
upset of the week was the Ord-
nance uprising which resulted in
a double win over the highly rat-
ed Zebra keglers. Aurigemma was
the big gun for the Ordmen with
scores of 165, 212, and 205 for
a total of 582 pins.
A glance at the schedule re-
veals that the pins should fly
on Monday night when the QM and
69th bowlers, traditional enem-
ies, meet for the first time in
this league. A triple triumph
for the Rugged men would boost
them above the champs, who are
in second place.
High scorer of the week was the
GM' s Al Loudis, who not only had
the high single game, but also
the three-game high.

victory.

TWO COLORED TEAMS CONTINUE WINNING WAYS

BY DEFEATING NAPIER AND JINKS NINES


By CPL. MARVIN CARTER
Both the post colored team and
the Aviation All-Stars continued
their winning ways with triumphs
over the Napier Field and Jinks
Tiger nines last Sunday.
Playing before a near capacity
crowd here on the field, the
post team eked out an 8-7 win
over the Dothan team when short-
stop Harrison connected for a
resounding triple with two men
on base in the last of the sixth.
Weaks was again on the mound for
Tyndall and seemed to have diff-
iculty settling down until the
fifth, when he regained his form
and held the visitors in check
for the remainder of the game.
Rightfielder Mayo began the
scoring for T/F in the second
when he doubled to left field
and came home minutes later on
hits by teammates.


Weaks allowed sixteen hits
but with the aid of good field-
ing was able to hold the enemy
to seven runs while the Tyndall
men combed a pair of Napier
moundsmen for the same number
of base knocks.
Meanwhile, in Panama City, the
rampaging All-Stars were tussl-
ing with the Jinks Tigers whom
they finally succumbed by a 7-5
score. -Gorham and White shared
the pitching chores, allowing,
six hits. However, loose play-
ing by teammates permitted the
Jinks to make the score close.
A triple by Sanders in the last
of the eighth was the winning
blow for the Aviation men.
Tomorrow, the post team trav-
els to Dothan to meet the Napier
team in a return game while the
All-Stars take on the Bay Harbor
aggregation here on the field.

Tyndall Lefthander
Allows One Run
On Three Hits

Behind the three-hit pitching
of Norman Southard, Tyndall's
Tornadoes batted out a 6-1 vic-
tory over the Panama City Naval
Section teem last Sunday.
Southard was never in trouble,
allowing but one hit, a triple,
until the last inning when the
tars managed to get one run on
a walk and two singles. That
the portsider was in excellent
form is demonstrated by the box
score which shows a to-al of 14
strike-outs to his credit. He,
was at his best in the second,
third and fifth innings when he
retired the opposition None-two-
three" via the "K" route.
Edwards again paced the Tyn-
dall batsmen with two hits in
four trips to tie plate, but
the biggest blow of the game was
lidier's two run homer in the
sixth.

Redbirds
Well, the Redbirds ride again. After
a prolonged absence of several weeks,
this outfit finally makes the dead-
line. We will endeavor in the near
future to continue our literary right
as long as the "Hays office" ap-
proves.
This squadron, as you know, is re-
sponsible for keeping those red-nosed
jobs that roost on the group one end
of the ramp in the blue as much as
possible. The organization also con-
tains a number of two-target opera-
tors, those automatons who sojourn
into that wild blue yonder daily. In!
addition, we have quite a few boys
sporting that hange- nnllo- working
the swing shift, you know where:
Some-,of the things that aie puzzl-
ing us are, "Why are the boys in
barracks 348 so intent in keeping
their rear windows spotless?" Could
it be that they are going a little
Waccy?
What is the secret to "Atlas Maid-
enswoon" Baldwin's success? Per-
haps it's his build.

H SELF GORDON SAYS...


THE SECRET NOBODY TOLD
...Today a man is studying...tiny 'bits and pieces,' those
seemingly harmless scraps of information from all parts of
the country:
The wife of a shipping clerk to a friend on a bus: 'We're
staying home. Al's tired. He shipped 80 cases of quinine to
the Army today.'
(Quinine for the Army...the tropics, eh? And 80 cases
means a lot of men. Interesting.)
'Paratroopers inoculated...'
(Must've been inoculated once before--why again? Expecting
to encounter...tropical diseases perhaps?)
A man in a movie lobby talking about neighbor's son...being
trained in coast invasion tactics in Texas...neighbor hasn't
heard from son lately.
(Hasn't heard lately...maybe one's sailed)
A woman said her nephew John Wycowski had sailed.
A girl asked a friend, Stella Wycowski, if she'd heard from
her brother lately. Stella W. replied, 'Yes, he's in Texas
with the 29th Infantry.'
(So the 29th of Texas has sailed and another soldier in
Texas with special invasion training seems to have sailed,
too. Looks like one and the same thing. One di;,ision of
troops sailing...quinine shipped..paratroopers inoculated..
.could they be going to one of our tropical islands per-
haps?...Must be soon...can't tell which one...but it has to
be one of these six.)
And so the word goes out. And in that carefully planned
attack--about which nobody talked...very much--many of our
ships are sunk...our men are thrown back into the sea by
numerically superior forces...our paratroopers and planes are
caught by enemy fighters.
THAT'S HOW ENEMY AGENTS WORK IN THIS WAR.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO KNOW A BIG SECRET TO GIVE A BIG SECRET AWAY

REMEMBER THIS RULE:
If you HEAR it from someone, don't repeat it.
If you SEE it yourself, don't repeat it.
But--if you READ it in a newspaper or magazine or HEAR
it on the radio, then it's public property and you may
talk about it.

Saturday, C B S


1. On a bright sunny day when
you walk into a dark movie the-
atre, do the pupils of your eyes
become larger or smaller?

2. "Trust" can be used either
as a noun or a verb. For in-
stance, you can say: "I'm going
to put my funds in trust," and
you can also say, "I trust you
implicitly. You might say to a
girl "You are my valentine. Is
it also correct to say, "I val-
entine you"?

beef steak, do you exert nearer

hands with their left paw?

6. If you had your choice of a
sable, a chinchilla and a mink
coat, which would you choose, if
you wanted the least expensive?

7. A fog is different from a
cloud because it is near the
ground. Is there any other dif-
ference between a fog and a
cloud?

8. Did a polecat get its name
because it is harnessed to a
pole, because it originated in'
Poland, or because it preys on
poultry?

9. A boy and a girl were rid-
ing on a train dos a dos. Does
that mean that he was sitting
beside her, across the aisle

to back or was he dozing on her
shoulder?

stance in the human head?
