Henry W. Grady in "The few South" speaks of his first visit
to Washington, and his viewing the Army, the Treasury, the
Courts, and Congress: He was so impressed that he said, "Here
is the strength of the nation. Then after visiting in the
home of a friend, an humble but real Christian home, he said,
"Oh, surely, here in the hearts of the people at last are
lodged the strength and responsibilities of this government,
the hope and promise of this Republic. For in the heart of
that home he had found the open Book and the bended knee. No
nation has ever risen higher than its home life.
A clean-cut young officer, speaking to his chaplain about
some habits of his comrades about which he was distressed, said
"Sir, it is after all largely a matter of early training in the
home. The good things which any of us do we learned first to
do at home.
When farthest from home we realize most our love for it, and
our debt to it. Frequent thoughts of home, constant prayers
for those in it, and regular letters to those who still abide
there will make home for us not only a precious memory but a

MAXIMUM TAXI FARES
ARE SET UP
An extract from a Panama City
municipal ordinance which pres-
cribes maximum taxicab fares was
brought to the attention of Tyn-
dall Field personnel in a Daily
Bulletin this week.
The ordinance says that cab-
drivers may'charge only $2.50
for bringing one or two passeng-
ers from anywhere within Panama
City to Tyndall Field or vice
versa. The ordinance allows the
cab-drivers to charge 50 cents
additional for each passenger
A severe penalty is provided
for taxicab drivers for over-
charging. The bulletin said that
if an overcharge is attempted
military personnel should de-
ciTne to pay more thain' t '
amount stipulated above and also
should take the number of the ve-
hicle, the name of the driver,
and note the time of the attempt-
ed overcharge. He should then
give all this information to the
Post Legal Officer.
SThe same maximum fee is in ef-
:fect for transportation between
Panama City and panama City Beach

And now, if you can wrest your eyes off the photo for a few
minutes, we'll disclose some academic facts about Miss Cleary.
She has displayed her terpsichorean ability in the Empire Room
of the swank Palmer House in Chicago, and has appeared with
such top-notch bands as Eddie Duchin's, Skinny Ennis' and
In addition to performing personally, Miss Cleary has also
taught the finer points of dancing at the Muriel Abbott School;
and as a token of her versatality, she is rated as a highly
efficient private secretary, having graduated from the De Paul
University Secretarial College in Chicago.
However, entertaining supper club audiences or acting as a
private secretary to the law firm of a retired major general,
didn't strike Germaine as being associated closely enough with
the war effort, and last February she joined'the U.S. Marine
Corps Reserve. At present, with the rank of corporal, she is
staff adjutant of her company stationed at Camp Le Jeune, New
Lt. Cleary entered the Army in January, 1942, as a private.
After 10 months at Jefferson Barracks, where he was acting
first sergeant of a school squadron, he left for Miami Beach
0. C. S.
The lieutenant arrived at Tyndall last December, and after a
brief period as a flight instructor, became adjutant of squad-
ron D, of which outfit he is now the C.O. Much of his spare
time in the past few months has been spent holding down the
first sack on the TIF Officers' baseball team.

TAILOR REMEMBERS PROMISE
TO SEW STRIPES FREE
When Sgt. Holly Stewart of
Parlesburg, W. Va., section In-
structor with Squadron D, was
promoted to staff sergeant some
nine months ago, he brought his
shirts into a Panama City tailor
shop to have the chevrons sewed
on. Upon finishing the job, the
tailor told Stewart to bring his
shirts in when he made "Techw and
he would sew them on free.
Stewart, remembering the tailor's
promise, stopped by the same shop
last week to have his new tech-
nical sergeant stripes sewn on
and he was amazed to learn that
the tailor not only remembered
about the stripes, but even re-
called his name!

After a very enjoyable vacation
spent on the beach of Skunk Hol-
low we were all raring to get
started on the gunnery course. .I
can safely say that the men are
interested in their studies,.
after listening to their chatter
for the past week.
All fdur hundred and some odd
men are eagerly awaiting the
Saturday inspection. If you
think the premise of passes for
the flight having the cleanest
barracks is the main incentive
to their anticipation, you are
wrong. The uppermost incentive
put to the boys was the promise
that the best flight would eat
first not for one full day but
for a complete week, twenty-one
meals. Any soldier who has gone
through the Flexible Gunnery
School will understand why the
boys pick a visit to Panama City
as second choice.

THE TYNDALL TARGET
THE TYNDALL TARGET
PRAISE THE LORD!
WE PASS THE AMMUNITION
Ammunition! Tons of it! Cal. 30 ball and tracer; cal. 50 ball, armor
piercing and tracer; cal. 45 pistol ball; cal. 22 for long rifles; 7-i,
8, 9, Chs. for skeet; all expendable and ours for the passing.
The freight cars never arrive on cool days--they have an affinity for
heat that is almost touching. It is 7:30 in the morning when the trucks
begin rolling in from the garage. Sometimes there are 10, 20 of them, once
even 60, but that was a very hot day and the freight cars kept coming in
like the inductees did after December 7, 1941. We were hauling all the
ammunition in the world and kept wondering what our gunners in Europe.and
the Pacific were using since we had all of it here. "Must bd borrowing
the stuff from the Italians," we muttered and continued our perspiring.
It took Ordnance Sgt. Frank Aurigemma, his assistants, Cpl. Steckleberg
and pvt. Arciello and scores of men and trucks, five days to move the
mountain of ammunition away from Monammed in the freight yards. When the
last car had been emptied and the last truckload safely stored away,
someone started to whistle "praise the Lord and pass the Ammunition." Al-
though a neophyte in the service, that soldier is sporting six wound chev-
rons today and is wearing that colorful uniform of the Station Hospital's
Corp de Invalides, a red bathrobe.
"But what do you do on days when there are no cars.riding the rails at
the loading station?" "Well, soldier, here it is. Did you ever look
close at a gunner--see the hungry look in his eyes? He's waiting to be
fed and Ordnance does the ladling. In the Ordnance warehouse are three
cal. 30 and two cal. 50 linking machines, beating out a terrific tempo
from 7 in the morning to 4:30 in the afternoon. Those machines are as
insatiable as the gunners. It takes hundreds of boxes of ammunition a day
to keep them from griping and at the same time, fill the firing needs of
the student gunners at Tyndall and Apalachicola. Ever try opening a box
of .50's, soldier? Well, the lid's easy, it's the inner tin that raises
hob with your fingers. I'll bet there are more cuts and blisters in Ord-
nance, than bunions in the whole Air Corps. Got 26 myself, with 7 more
"So the stuffs linked as fast as T/4 Frank Cappiello's crew can turn it
out." Now it's ready for Sgt. Frank Strakal and his men. These are the
Ordnance artists. For the ammunition Ordnance issues a training field,
must have its nose painted, before it can be delivered to the ranges.
Red, green, purple, yellow, orange, and brown these are the colors of
Ordnance,'for each student is assigned a color which makes his firing
score identifiable, as the color splurges when a bullet finds the target.
When the ammunition is painted and boxed, the crew of Sgt. Leon Stephens,
assembles the individual range orders and turns them over to T/4 Vito
Ingargiola and his brawny truck drivers, who haul it away. So ends the
cycle of passing the ammunition at AAFFGS Tyndall Field, Florida.
Ordnance is essentially, a service organization with manifold duties.
The work is hard and you've got to stay with it. Fulfilling the ammuni-
tion requisites of one of the country's largest Flexible Gunnery Schools
is no sinecure and the capablelooking, hard muscled men of Ordnance who
take their orders from T/3 Jackson Bennett and his able assistant, Sgt.
Anthony Bliznik, are indeed worthy of their hire.
Abve: CAPTAIN KETETH G. EMERY, recently
assigned Post Ordnance Officer, arrived at
Tyndall last month from Harlingen, Tex., to
assume the duties vacated by Major Samuel
Captain Emery was called to active duty on
July 1, 1941, and was assigned as shop officer

THE TYNDALL TARGET
AN EDITORIAL FROM COLLIERS MAGAZINE
Two Tips to Servicemen
C OLLIER'S has many thousands of readers in
the Armed Forces, so we feel justified in ad-
dressing this editorial primarily to service-
men-though of course anybody else is welcome to
read it. Here are a couple of tips which we think
servicemen can profit by:
1. A good deal of talk goes around to the effect
that the returned warriors after this war are going
to run the country pretty much to suit their own
ideas of how it should be run. Probably that's true.
It happened after the Revolution and after the Civil
War, and to a considerable extent after the "junior
war," as a friend of ours calls World War I.
This doesn't mean, though, that every veteran
will come home and slide automatically into a well-
paid life-tenure job, political or private, with all his
Doubtless there will be veterans' preference laws
on civil service jobs, and doubtless many private
firms will give veterans the inside track when it
comes to hiring help. But, as always in this world,
the best educated and most active-minded veterans
will get and hold most of the best jobs, and the less
well-equipped the second and third best.
So our first tip is: Why not look into the edu-
cational opportunities offered by the United States
Armed Forces Institute?
This is a sort of glorified correspondence school
set up for the use of servicemen, and operated by
the extension division of the University of Wisconsin
with assistance from various other colleges. It offers
instruction in everything from simple arithmetic to
postgraduate philosophy, and is reported especially
strong in the fields of mechanics and science. Costs
are low, and the government pays half a man's tui-
tion up to and including $20.
Maybe this is what you've been looking for. Its
practical value is obvious; but there also comes to
mind Lieutenant Colonel John Allison's (14th Air
Force, China) remark that "War is dull; there is
so much waiting in it." This looks like one in-
teresting and profitable way to fill in some of that
2. There is also a lot of talk about big bonuses
for returned fighters after this war; and that talk is
probably true, too. But such things always have a
pie-in-the-sky quality until you actually .collect them,
and then, often as not, they do the old easy-come-
The practical, sensible, businesslike thing to do
now about your personal finances 'is to get your war
life insurance lined up, if you haven't already done
so. Maximum policy is $10,000; premium is a little
under $7 a month for a fighting man of twenty-
eight (the average age).
In the rush of getting our Armed Forces ex-
panded and organized since Pearl Harbor, a sur-
prising number of men have neglected to take out
this insurance. Things are better under control now;
and if you haven't arranged this protection for your
wife, or any other member of your family, it would
be wise to make it an early order of business.

and naturally Keyes took up the
trade of "gentleman farmer." Sgt.

sergeant of the guard and is well
liked by all of the men on his relief.
Sam aims to go back to his Louisiana
farm and raise chickens and "corn"

In most cases, college football
will be a thing of the past this
year. In the southern part of
the country, a few colleges such
as Tulane, Georgia Tech and some
others will have teams, with the
help of Naval cadets. Alabama,
Boston: College, Harvard and most
other big name colleges definite-,
ly will not field teams. Fans in
the north and middle west will
get their football entertainment
by watching the semi-pros and

Satchel paige, famous negro
baseball pitcher, recently came
up with a prediction in an As-
sociated press story that colored
athletes will be found in major
league lineups within two or
three years, and even went so far
as to say that some of the negro
athletes will be given tryouts
next spring. This will not be a
surprise to fans in other sec-
tions of the country where they
have become accustomed to watch-
ing colored youths play on some
of the nation's foremost college
football teams. The colored ath-
letes hold a heavy percentage of
boxing championships at the pres-
ent time, rating from Sgt. Joe
Louis on down. In track, negro
representatives have more than
held their own, even establish-
ing records in various phases of
competition. Once they enter ma-
jor league baseball, they'll give

Well, Joe snapped out of his
slump the other day and smacked
out a triple and two singles.
Despite his efforts, however, his

Wilfred "Lefty" Lefebvre, foi-

he held the usually heavy-hitting
St. Louis Browns to five scatter-

win. Obtained two weeks ago from
Minneapolia where he had been
exiled by the Boston Red Sox,
Lefebvre is certain to grab him-
self some extra money as the Sen-
ators are a cinch to finish in
the first division. We'll always
remember Lefty's first big league
appearance. He hurled for the
Red Sox against Chicago, and in
his first time at bat in the maj-
ors, hammered the ball far and
wide over the left field fence at
Fenway Park. Incidentally, he's
a left hand hitter, so has
plenty of power.
