A simple house nestling at
the foot of the snow-capped
peaks of the Elburz Mountains
Iran, was recently the scene
of an epochal first meeting
between the Messrs. Roosevelt,
Stalin and Churchill.
These three, representing
the greatness of the Allied
Nations at war, arrived In
Teheran on November 28, for
the opening of the historic
Ah amazing amiability fea-
tured the talks of the 'Big
Three' and when on November
30, the British Legation gave
a dinner party in honor of
Churchill's 69th birthday, Pre-
mier Stalin had himself a
fine time ambling genially
around the table clinking
glasses with each man, and
himself raising his glass to:

Prime purpose of the Teheran
conference was to fix the time
for the full scale invasion of
Hitler's sagging Fortress
Biropa. With the 'Big Three'
acting in concert with their
military advisers complete
agreement was reached, to
quote from the original text
of the declaration, "as to the
scope and timing of operations
which will be underneath from
the East, West and South. "

cluded also plans for an en-

In the first verse of the fourth chapter of Ephe-
sians, the Apostle Paul indicates that he is writing
this letter from a prison camp. He speaks of him-
self as "The Prisoner of the Lord." This statement
would' appear rather contradictory when we consider
his many discourses on Christain liberty. It seems
even more so when we consider the many inestimable
joys and blessings which he declares will come from
one's relationship to Christ.
This story coming out of the African Campaign will
perhaps help clear the seeming difficulty. Upon one
occasion, it is said, a British officer was captured
by the Italians. He registered a strong protest at
the very inpalitable plate of macaroni which they
served him for supper. All the Italians readily
agreed with the officer that such a dish was not
even.fit for hogs, but it was the only thing which
they had between themselves and starvation. Then
the British officer began to reminisce in their pre-
sence of all the choice foods he had partaken of in
the British camp. The Italians went into a huddle
and returned to announce. "We have decided to be
your prisoners instead. Will you take us to your
To be a prisoner of the Lord and partake of the
divine blessings in His camp is infinitely more de-
sirable than to remain in our own veritable prison
camp of sinfulness and spiritual starvation.

Lt. Col. Jack L. Randolph pre-
sented the emblems at a ceremony
on the ramp in front of the old
hangar. He declared that the
Army's civilian employes "have
rendered your best to your coun-
try....something of which you mAy
justly be proud."
Miss Florence Canter, of Civil-

the civilian employes accepted
the ribbons by saying the emblems

soldiers because they are so much

Randolph said, "is no stronger
than the will and determination
of the people at home. By their
will and determination an Army or
a Navy is supplied with the weap-
ons to carry on successfully at
the fronts. Such team work calls
for sacrifices at home and at the
fronts. Absenteeism is more than
hindrance to the war effort. It
is aid and comfort--even assis-
tance-to the enemy.
"Today, two years after our
declaration of war, it is evident
to ourselves and our allies and
our enemies that American indus-
try met the test. On every bat-
tlefront American-made tools of
war are dealing blows which are
shaping the war which we all hope
will be rushed to an early con-
,clusion. That goal was not
reached without sacrifice on the
part of civilian workers."
Major Loren A. Bryan, command-
ing officer of the Air Service

troducing Colonel Randolph said
that "we all know that the suc-

Something Hitler would have
given Goebbel's right eye for,
would have been a seat at the
Teheran conference table while
the talks between the 'Big Three'
were at their height. Or again,
this column may be mistaken, since
it is one thing to hear about
your death warrant being draft-
ed -- but still another to have
to be present at the signatorlal

Bougainville in the South Pacific,
and the open waters that surround

tide the luckless Zero or surface
craft that ventures forth, for
Allied bombs are exhibiting a rare
affinity for Rising Sun targets

lesson of Pearl Harbor. And our

really one for the books. Which
is the American way of saying that
we are out to get all the Japanese
royalties on that limited edition
of a man Tojo.
It appears as tho "neither rain
nor snow nor sleet" can keep the.
Russian males from making their
appointed rounds. Day after
weary day, the Reds are giving
the Nazis something to write home
about as the Russian buck con-
tinues to plough forward through
softening German resistance. Last
week, Stalin's stalwarts captured
22 hamlets and routed thousands
of the followers of the man who
would be king. Like most bad
actors the Nazis excel in muffing
their cues, this time however,
they are in grave danger of dis-
covering all too late, that most
of their lines are either missing
or lie buried beneath te season's
final curtain in the deep Dnieper
From the Swiss-Italian frontier
comes an unconfirmed report of
the firing squad execution of
Count Galeazzo Ciano, former Fas-
cist foreign minister of Italy,
and son-in-law to the deposed II
Duce. Repudiated by the German
news agency DNB which broadcast a
denial, it remains to be seen
whether it is the story or Ciano
that is full of holes. Notorious
for his greed and affaires amour,
and sponsored by his Premier
father-in-law, Ciano rose high in
the Fascist council before his
falling out with Mussolini. In-
formed circles incline to the
theory that his death was a direct
result of in-law trouble.

One of the most collectingest guys on Tyndall Field is
Ist/Sgt. Clare Willcut of Squadron C. Now, some people go in
for coins, collecting stamps, or, even blondes -- but Willcut
decided against being a numismatist, philatelist or wolf, in
order to concentrate on the intricate and painstaking task of
collecting Army shoulder patches and insignias. Although
specializing in U.S. Army emblems, Willcut has added the in-
signias of several of our Allies to his collection, including
Dutch and French regimental badges.
In his favorite photo (above) the sergeant is pictured with
his collection. He is shown pointing to the U.S. Army's 2nd
Division insignia. He claims he has.been trying for that
emblem for more than three years and now that he has at last
obtained one, considers it among his most valuable additions.
Queried as to why the 2nd Division insignia was so hard to
acquire, Willcut explained that no one whom he had ever met
that had one was willing to surrender it. Upon further ques-
tioning we learned that he finally obtained it through the
efforts of one of his "agents" (a friend) up in Chicago.
The sergeant started his. collection back in 1935, when he
first-entered the service. He transferred to the AAF in
December, 1941. To date his collection includes 124 shoulder
patches and 104 metal regimental insignias.
Willcut comes from Souix City, South Dakota, is married and
has three children. He and his family reside in Panama City.
In closing the conversation, Willcut hurriedly added, "I'm 28
years old and like Calverts whiskey!"
There will be a Public Speaking
Contest held at Tyndall Field in
the near future, it was announced
today, and all persons interested
are invited to contact S/Sgt.
Steve Libby at 3137 for further
and more complete information.
Enlisted men and Wacs will par-
ticipate In the contest, which
will be held in about six weeks.
The contest, sponsored jointly
by the Special Services and Pub-
lic Relations Offices, will pre-
sent several weeks of intensive
study by the participants, and
should be the source of much en-
joyment for the attending audi-
ence of officers, enlisted per-
sonnel, and wives.

will be in mid-January at either

Hall. Suitable prizes will be

I've been a private in the Army

you help me?

no. Mine is a new and exclusive
Approach your first sergeant,
and say, "You know Bill" (always
call him by his first name), "You
know, Bill, I been hearing it
sort noised around the squadron
that some of your GI's is dis-
satisfied with the dough their
getting. You know, Bill, that' s
a terrible way for a soldier to
be. If I were you, I'd do some-
thing about it." Then, of course,
the sarge asks you who's dis-
satisfied, and you say, "Me. '
Naturally, he'll get a great
kick out of this .. he'll slap
you on the back, offer you a
cigar, and the next thing you
know, you'll be making more money,
You'll be a corporal.
If you don't like this method,
private, I suggest that you use
the Blitzkrieg Method. Prepare
about 100 little notes, each one
saying: "I want a raise,* or
"Chum, I.need bucks," or words to

notes all over the orderly room.
Tack a few on the wall over your

Just so's he'll see one every

So You Want to Come Home, Soldier?
Everybody else wants you to-but it won't be day after tomorrow
By JOHN GUNTHER
Reprinted from Look Magazine
Listen, soldier. Listen, sailor.
You want to get home again just as soon
as possible, don't you? Of course you
do. So does everybody else want you
to everybody including Adniral King
and General Marshall.
But probably you aren't going to get
home again for quite some time. You
might as well get used to that idea
The aim of American strategy is to
bring you home, but to bring you home
in one piece. We are out to win, but
with the minimum of losses. It's a
case of the longest way around being
the shortest way home-for those who
would rather NOT come home in a pine-
People complain that our strategy is
hesitant, that we are too deliberate,
too slow. They ask why we are not more
aggressive, why we haven't invaded
France, for instance, long since.
Maybe you've been asking these ques-
tions yourself. You're squatting in
camp, champing at the bit, eager for
action. You're restless.
Well, one reason things are so slow
is solicitude for your welfare. Amer-
ica wants to save YOUR life. That's
why you can afford to be restless a
little longer. Time can save lives.
In Malta last July, I had the good
luck to have a long talk with Gen. Sir
Bernard L. Montgomery, commander of
the British 8th Army. He told me he
had two rules for combat.
First, never to be rushed.
Second, never to undertake a campaign
unless he was certain that it would be
Consequently, Montgomery's men's.
morale is probably the best of any army
in the world, because they feel certain
he will never be reckless and that they
will never have to fight a losing
American commanders, by and large,
take a prudent, cautious view of war
for two reasons.
First, an innate American desire for
perfection in accomplishment. For ex-
ample, no American bombing crew is sent
over a target without a briefing so
extraordinarily detailed and elaborate
that sometimes it seems excessive.
Second, a desire to save lives. For
instance, it is now accepted as a tru-
ism that our Army will never make a
major amphibious landing without com-
plete cover from fighter airplanes.-
Salerno, some 200 miles from Sicily,
represented abaut as broad a jump as
we are likely to take this year. Most
fighter airplanes are restricted to a
range of about 200 miles, if they are
to have a reserve of gasoline for
cruising or fighting over the target
This, soldier, may mean that our
advance is slow. But be grateful. It
may severely restrict our choice of
invasion points when the-Western Front
-is opened. But be glad of it.
Our strategy is wholly antipathetic
to the use of great masses of men on a
broad, lateral front, as in Russia.
Why? Because this costs far too many
lives. What we favor instead are
thrusts whereby small but intensely
powerful columns of men can pierce to
the heart of the enemy and deliver a
killing knife blow.
Our most valuable leaders try to save
lives by scrupulous concern for three
First, adequate training of troops.
Second, giving our troops the very
best possible in food, equipment, sup-
plies and weapons.
Third, furnishing the finest medical
One basic reason for America's fine
stinginess in spending lives--your
,life, soldier-is the experience of the
last great war, the bloodiest in his-
tory. The colossal losses in human
life that the European nations under-
went cardinally affected almost every
one of then.
France was destroyed, not so much by
Hitler in 1943, as by the blood-letting
of 19i4-i8--the loss of 1,363,000 men
of reproductive age. England became a
quasi-pacifist state-with Oxford boys
swearing they would NOT fight for king
and country-largely because the Brit-
ish respected any opinion bought with a
million lives. German casualties alone
reached the almost inconceivable total
of 7,C00,000, with 1,800,000 killed.
Ludendorff's great offensives in the
spring of 1918-which so drained the
Germans of blood that they lost the
war-cost us and our allies more than a
full million of casualties in five short
Our policy also has been conditioned
in other than purely military respects
by this desire not to repeat the hor-
rors of the last war. For instance, in
politics: Why did we deal with Darlan
in North Africa? Because--rightly or
wrongly--it was thought it would make
invasion less costly. Why did we link
up with the king and Badoglio in Italy?
Because we thought--perhaps mistakenly-
that it would speed up the Italian
campaign and end the war sooner.
In tne military field, more and more
our essential strategy is based on air
power. By bombing, we achieve results
that would cost multiple thousands of
casualties on land. A big raid on a
Nazi target may engage SCO bombers and,
roughly, 50=0 men. But these 5000 men
may wreak, in 20 minutes, destruction
that 50,000 troops could not achieve
in 20 months.
Probably the United States and Great
Britain.could, if necessary, stage a
cross-channel invasion of Europe to-
morrow. But the risk would be great
and the cost might be frightful.
No, this war won't be won in a hurry.
We are not going to attempt a crash-
through victory next week. For which
you, soldier, may thank your stars.

THE TYNDALL TARGET

ALTITUDE UNIT MEMBERS COMPLETE THEIR
THOUSANDTH "FLIGHT" TO 38,000 FEET;
MORE THAN 3,200 HOURS FLYING TIME
Unit's Function Is to Teach Gunners How to Use All
Types of Oxygen Equipment; High Altitude
Causes Many Amusing Reactions
Braving "bends," anoxia and
other rigors of high altitudes,
members of the 25th Altitude
Training Unit recently completed
their thousandth "flight" to 38,-
000 feet. This figure represents
roughly 3,200 hours of simulated
flying time in the pressure cham-
The Altitude Training Unit's
chief function is to teach pros-
pective gunners how to use all
types of oxygen equipment, and to
give them actual experience by'
taking them on two "flights" in
Shortly after arriving at Skunk
Hollow, the gunners are given a
brief lecture on oxygen equipment
and its necessity at high alti-
tudes. Then they are placed In
the pressure chamber for their
first flight, to 28 D00 feet, and
an introduction to oxygen-lack,
which fliers begin to experience
above 10,000 feet.
Regulations state that oxygen
must be used from 10,000 feet up,
but on this trip the men are car-
ried above this level so they may
get a vivid realization of the
necessity for using oxygen. Many
humorous incidents have occurred
while the men were suffering oxy-
gen lack anoxiaa) before donning
their masks. There are many reac-
ttons; some cases become morose
and droopy, others exhilarated
and "slap-happy." Turning on the
oxygen Is the cure for all.
An unhappy victim once, while
in the throes of anoxia, wrote
several uncompl'imentalry state-
ments about Skunk Hollow; enbar-
rassment followed when he regain-
ed control of his faculties after
One unreasonable fellow refused
to put his mask on unless he was
allowed to remove his shoes; the
deal was made--he took off his
shoes and put on his mask. He
was considerably chagrined on re-
Another, on the verge of pass-
ing out, insisted he needed no
oxygen. He had to be physically
overcome by three others who held
his mask in place until he recov-
Several days later the men are
returned to the chamber for a
higher altitude, 38,000 feet.
Once again they are placed in
the huge steel chambers, and
taken up to experience the ex-
ceedingly low pressure of simu-
lated high altitude. Here they
come in contact with "bends"
aeroembolismm), gas pains, and
other miseries that sometimes
accompany low pressure. On most
flights to 38,000 feet It be-
comes necessary to "bring down"
one or more who cannot endure
,some high altitude symptom.
Such men are returned later for
a second flight, and if the sym-
ptoms reappear they are reconm-
mended for a lower altitude than
those who complete the run.
The unit was activated October
20 of last year with Lt. H. W.
Cummings in .charge. Lt. Louis
Kleinholz and Lt. Stephen W.
Gray completed the official
staff. Lt. Gray is the present
commanding officer, while the
former two are no longer with
the Unit. Seagle, McGraw and
Kirkland were the first enlisted
men assigned to the outfit, with
Hill, Mason, Howard, Boggs, Cox
and Sveum following shortly. The
latter is the only one not in
the Unit at the present time.
The present officer personnel,
in addition to Lt. Gray, includ-
es Lt. Edgar G.S. Baker., adju-
tant, and Lt. Emanuel Marcus and
Newest addition to the Alti-
tude Training .Unit's program
for gunners is the Night -Vision
Tester, operated as a separate
unit to test the men's ability
to see at night. Instruction
is also given in the correct
method of looking at lighted
objects in the dark.
The 25th acts as its own
weather station, and daily
clearance must be obtained be-
fore taking off for the first
flight. This is done in order
that altitude barometers and
altimeters may read correctly

Stripped of my former tremendous reserve and sick at heart of our

My luckless companion on pots
and pans was a former paratrooper
from Fort Benning, Georgia, with
the handle of "Whizzby" Richard-

bags and a thoroughly disreputable

Whizzby turned out to' be a gar-

after several hours of enforced
listening I found it a positive

steaming walls of the Cauldron
were lined with used kitchen
ware. These were of all shapes
and sizes, greasy and blackened,

forth. Sulphur! I snorted, and

that nice? "To the men of Tyndall Field...."
Well, some seven years ago, when Deanna was being tested for her first picture (Three Smart
Girls), she gave director Henry Koster plenty of trouble. Terrified by the camera, she wept
copious tears. When Kester asked her if she didn't want to be a movie star, she answered,
simply, "No. I just want to sing."
Well, since that first picture, she's been completely at ease before the cameras. Her act-
ing is secondary only to her singing, according to her press releases, and everyone knows a
press agent wouldn't tell a lie.
Anyhow, fellows, here's Deanna...as lovely a dish as you'll often find. And she makes her

OM BOAT COMPANY
HAS CLASSES IN
Through the efforts of Capt.
Herman Gundlach Jr., C.O., en-
listed men of the 1003rd QM Boat
Co. are now attending classes in
marine navigation being given on
the post by Jack Manson, civilian
member of Transportation Corps-
Enrollment in the course, which
is open only to the personnel of
the 1003rd Boat Co., is not com-
pulsory. The present course in
dead reckoning and celestial
navigation, covers all phases of
nautical navigation as well as
allied subjects such as the com-
pass, pelorus, the sextant, chart
reading and coast-wise navigation.
Satisfactory completion of the
course, which requires 9 hours of
classroom work per week for eight
weeks in addition to an equal
number of study hours outside the
classroom, in other than regular
duty hours, will usually qualify
the student as a marine navi-
The opening class was held
November 17 in a room of the
partially completed oil and parts
building near the Boat Company's
mess hall and is the first in a
series of practical courses to be
offered in seamanship. Other
courses will follow, including
signalling, marlln-spike and deck
Although the course of in-
struction has been tried at other
fields, the 1003rd QM Boat Co. is
the only boat company that is
successfully completing it.
Capt. Hanson, the instructor,
is a graduate of the Ackerman
School of Navigation, and like
his father a ship's captain for
40 years, has been a yacht cap-
tain since 1929 for William B.
Leeds, the Tin Plate heir and
husband of Princess Xenia of
Greece, and Cornelius and W.J.
Vanderbilt, among others.
Born within sound of the tugs
in New York City's harbor, Capt.
Manson, who is married, has been
in the service of the Transporta-
tion Corps-Water, since August,
1942. Originally stationed at
New Orleans and then later at
Fort Barrancas, Capt. Manson be-
fore his transfer to Tyndall
Field, his first permanent as-
signment, was transfently occu-
pied with delivering boats to
other army bases and in so doing,
has put more than 20,000 nautical
miles behind him since the first
of the year.
