MEMO FROM THE T/F HOSPITAL TO THE ENLISTED
MEN OF TYNDALL FIELD:
Just 24 months ago Christmas day, Tyndall Field
was formally "occupied" by the men who had been
temporarily stationed at Beacon Beach. Possibly
half a hundred out of that original group of GI's
are still here at Tyndall.
These 50 men witnessed the transformation of
stretches of sand, empty barracks and vacant runways
to bays j am-packed with double-decker beds, flour-
ishing lawns and hundreds of aircraft lined along
well-worn aprons bounded by hangars and busy machine
Sixteen days after that first Christmas on Tyndall
Field, the Tyndall Target made its initial appaPr-
ance. Cpl. Buck Timberlake, Pfc. Jack Parks and
Civilian Typist Roberta Gammon were the brains and
brawn behind this six-page mimeographed 8" by 10"
entry into the camp newspaper circle, which at that
time was comparatively small and select,
Today, Caot. Joseph W. Timberlake is in England
awaiting the "big push'" following active service
with the AAFIn Africa and Sicily. S/Sgt. Jack Parks
is at Buckingham Field, Fla., NCOIC of that field's
"Flexigun," and Miss Gammonis now lending her steno-
graphic skill to S-2 at the Marianna Air Base,
We who remained here to continue publishing the.
Target have kept in mind the purpose for which the
Target was founded: "To build morale through enter-
tainment via articles, pictures and cartoons, and
to disseminate news of interest to the G.I."
The Target, even in its infancy, held its place
among the better camp periodicals. In 1943, the
original 8" by 10" form was discarded and it liter-
ally "grew up" to.fts present 9" by 14" format. With
this increase in size the paper was able to include
many new features.
Not the least popular of these new features has
been the "Pin-Up Gal" series. An old favorite was
able to blossom out in enlarged form with the in-
creased size of the paper: Sgt. Marshall Goodman,
creator of our back page cartoons, is encored for
his popular contribution to the paper.
However, there is more to printing a paper than
just gathering and pasting the material on a make-up
page. Bows must be taken by the squadron reporters,
Post Photo and Reproduction staff, Special Service
Office, Public Relations Office, and the men of
Skunk Hollow who fold the some 9,000 pages every
So you see, the Target depends upon the cooper-
ation of many individuals of different departments,
and each issue is only as good as the effort put
forth by the men behind it.
Improvements in the printing process of the Target.
have in recent months outstripped the journalistic'
content because, we believe, the EM's have begun to
take the paper for granted. Although the Target
still ranks with the nation's best camp newspapers
in its own class, to boost it clear to the top we
need the backing of every G.I. on the field.
In 1944, in order to make the paper more interest-
ing to you, we want more and more of your sugges-
tions, contributions and honest criticisms. It's
your paper and your advice and guidance will deter-
mine its success.

A MATTER OF CONSCIENCE
The Christian is a foe to ignorance; he fights it on ever)
front. To get in touch with Christ is to have a mental awak-
It was certainly no mere chance that 95 percent of the high-
er educational institutions of Anerica came out of the Christ-
ian church. Jesus said, "Thou shalt love the lord thy God
with all thy mind.." That phrase "with all thy mind" was not
in the original.Old Testament command; Jesus put it in. Sci-
entists tell us that most of us use only one half of our
brains.- Jesus would awaken that other dormant half and help
ys t9 love God with "all "our minds.:
An ignorantly trained conscience is a danger to the world.-
The onsiplECe g is not pa infallible guide unless properly
trained. It is a capacity within us which decides whether a
thing is right or wrong, but wat it decides as right or wrong
is 4a8mfinfs by the training we give it. Paul killed Peole
in all good aons.ienge un. his conscience began to be train-
ed under the tutelage of ehrist. Then, and then only, was it
a safe guide.
We make our C60ou ciences, and then our consciences make us,
Many people have their conscisnges trained to be sensitive to
very marginal sins and short-comings, and net be at all acute
to central and fundamental sins. They have Picayunish con-
sciences which load them with a sense'pf gilt over trivial-
ities. A truly Christian conscience is a'great achievement,
as well as a great gift of God
Not only does conscience approve or disapprove within the
framework of what it is taught, but guidape also is thin
the framework of our intellectual conceptions., To give the
safest and highest guidance, our minds must be Christianly
informed and trained.

Former Tyndall Flier Is
Wounded While Fighting
Japs; Gets Two Medals
Lt. Howard T. Whitehurst, a
flying officer formerly sta-
tioned at Tyndall Field, has
received "a couple of medals"
and been wounded slightly
while fighting the Japs in
China, according to a letter
received by a friend, Miss
Ruth Brock of Panama City.
Here are some excerpts from
"As you will notice, this is
not my handwriting, reason be-
ing I'm now in the hospital,
"Here's the story: Got in a
fight with the Japs, one very
good Jap sharpshooter put one
in the cockpit with me. Was
injured but not seriously.
Lost left forefinger and end
of right thumb; O.K. otherwise
and will be out of the hospit-
"Incidentally, I got one of
the 'yellowrats' along with a
couple of medals and maybe a
promotion. I don' t think I
will be home too soon as I'm
not that badly injured. "

from February until August in
1942. Since that time he has
been in South America, Africa

CO WAKES UP WRONG
Squadron C will never know how
near it came to losing its rev-
eille whistle-blower last Sunday
morning. Promptly at 5:30 A.M.
he came charging Into the 25th
barracks, blowing his whistle and
turning on lights; seems he was
a little on the sleepy side him-
self and got our domicile mixed
with his. How he escaped in one
piece we'll never know. P.S.:
We'll know next time!
No one was more delighted than
Pvt. Jobson over the recent crew
shake-up. Now he has the same
duty hour as a certain Wac. Anne
is probably tickled too.

Movies of 1943 .. Compare them
with your favorites, and see how
Our number one shot for 1943
was Random Harvest. Maybe it was
because we were on our honeymoon
when we saw it, and maybe because
it was a fine film. But we liked
it best in 1943. Our number 2
choice was Claudia, for its pure
simplicity and true-to-life mean-
ing, ?laudia rates high with us.
Number 3 comes Action in the North
Atlantic, a fast-moving, well-
acted, wepl-photographed show.
Thousands Cheer our choice for
number 4, followed with This is
the Army as fifth. Six was Flesh
and Fantasy, for its sheer in-
difference to ordinary movie
technique. The 7 spot was that
thirst-maker Sahara. Victory
Thru Air Power comes eighth, with
the number 9 spot filled with
Bataan. Number 10 is Mr. Lucky,
a great picture with Cary Grant. -
Other shows considered in com-
piling our ten best include Human
Comedy, Best Foot Forward, Prin-
cess O'Rourke, Watch on the Rhine,
So Proudly We Hail, and Stage
If Destination Tokyo were re-
leased in '43 instead of early in
'44, it would certainly be in-
cluded in our listing. We saw
none of the following three, so

a sentimentally beautiful show
'To My Unborn Son,' the yarn
about a Slav guerilla who, as he
he was dying, wrote a letter to
his son, as yet unborn. Number
two is 'That's Why I Left You.'
It's about a guy who writes a
letter to his wife, explaining
why he left her and actually,
he doesn't go at-all.
Maybe we're. sentimental. We
don't know. Anyhow, those are
Best acting? We'd pick Ronald
Colman in 'Random Harvest' and
Dorothy McGuire in 'Claudia,'
with Cary Grant in 'Mr. Lucky' in
the show position.

We're back again! Friday night
we had another squadron meeting.
This time it was conducted by our
C.O., Capt. Hill. It was a war
orientation lecture. It's really
surprising how little we really
know about this War.

running around the field we're
almost like an old ladies sewing
8/Sgt. Munroe moved back into'
town this week so we were blessed
with another new barracks chief.
This time it's S/Sgt. Mills who
takes over the job. That makes
two new jobs for Mills. He and
Sgt. Hansellman were made squadron
bond salesmen. Let's help them
out, men. I hope that they sell
enough bonds to win the war.

SQUADRON C'S MARCHING
SHOULD BE PERFECT
IF RANK COUNTS
There certainly is plenty of
high rank among our students, 3.
M/Sgts., 5 T/Sgts., 18 S/Sgts.,
30 Sgts., and 50 Cpls. Our march-
ing to classes and from classes
should be perfect. With all the
rank in this outfit, we sure can
be "tops" in all we undertake.
Let's keep on the "balls men, and
make this class be the best that
has left this squadron yet.
Sgt. Samuel Fulton our Supply
man is now Delaware bound. He
will hit plenty of cold weather,
but he has been "sweating" out
that furlough ever since the last
one he had. Hurry back, Sam, as
we all will miss you, especially
the students. We extend a hearty
welcome to two more additions to
our permanent personnel, namely
T/Sgt. Welch, and Pvt. Fischer.
Pfc. Greenmun, to you we give
the title of "Questionable Ike.
You sure can think them up fast,
and you certainly keep the ist/Sgt.
in a dither.
Squadron C placed in a tie for
second in the Inspection Saturday;
nice work fellas, and let's go to
the top this week.
This squadron was honored with
a visit Sunday, by Master Roger
Willcut, ,and he made the men jump
at chow call, by his voice say-
ing, "fall out, time for chow.
His daddy who Is top-kick of this
outfit, said, "Roger had to see

that there were tents here.

SKEET CAUSES SORE

This past week saw the com-
pletion of our second week of
school and with it the intro-
duction of the skeet range. We
were the usual victims of sore
shoulders but the fun of the sport
made it worth while. We had our
pictures taken at Post Operations
and at that time got first hand
information about B-17's, B-26's
and saw the Flight Line for the
first time. All we have to do
now is graduate and get our class-
books with the pictures that were
Somebo-dy said that this was
Florida but from the frigid weath-
er we have been having it seems
more like Alaska. Most of the
class got passes for town for the
first time but with the wind and

racks was a more welcome place.
And speaking of the town, we won-

We will have you know that our
S/Sgt. Faye Snowden is fast be-

with the Post Team is to know why.
He is averaging 10 points a game
and only playing part of the full
game. We are waiting for the Post
Gym to open and to see some home
games there to watch old Silver-
king in action.

Seems that only those in the in-

there will be "those wedding bells

CADETS WONDER IF
TO GO TO CHURCH
Sunday is a busy day for the
cadets here at Tyndall. What
with movies n- the morning, chang-
ing barracks at noon, and a speech
in the afternoon, the day is
pretty well taken care of. There
seems to be no time for open post
or for relaxation on that seventh
day. Are cadets still allowed to
go to church?
We've got a new regime now, and
It looks as though there are go-
ing to be some changes made. Our
new C.O. certainly has a large
enough staff of Cadet Officers to
help him "keep us on the ball."
Let's hope there's more cooper-
ation and less tours.
Here's a warning to all motor-
ists on the post. When driving
through areas where cadets might
be encountered be sure to wear
coloredor glare-reducing glasses,
because the high glass shine on
the cadet shoes will surely re-
flect too much light for the naked
eye to stand. This warning is
purely in the interests of public
Bombardiers to the rescue again!
With bare hands and G.I. shoes
these brave boys put out the
roaring flames'of a fire which
threatened to spread through the
entire tower range. Inciden-
tally, these were the same boys
who saved the State of Georgia
Class 44-5 was host to the
graduating class of 44-2 at its
stag party on the llth. This is
the first time that the lower
class has been given the oppor-
tunity to be present at a grad-
uation stag party, but this pol-
icy will be followed hereafter.
What's this rumor that the low-
er class is having special meet-
ings at night to pray for cold
or stormy weather so they won't
have to take PT? Can it be that
they don't like our obstacle
course? We (44-6) had intended
to dedicate it to them with our
best wishes upon our graduation.
It seems almost as though Class
44-5 has taken up pilot training
on the side. At least the way
schedules, etc., are changing has
put us into a series of dizzy
spins. We've been in a daze for
days and days.
Why should there be such bitter
feeling between us cadets and the
enlisted men? After all, they
are our allies just like the Chi-

\WE THINK OF TWO CITIES
As we fight, as we bury our dead, as we re-form our squadrons for new battles,
we think of two cities--Berlin and Tokio. In the first World War, 20 million
men, women and children died. Cities fell in ruins, nations were decimated and
empires crashed. But Berlin stood unscathed and Kaiser Wilhelm died in bed.
Even as he passed, a second German madman was plotting another world war in
Berlin. From that city went forth, the goose-stepping legions who destroyed
Rotterdam in three hours'and Warsaw in a week. They snuffed out the lights of
Prague, Brussels, Belgrade and Athens; they pounded London and Stalingrad merc-
Cheered by four mi Illion residents of Berlin, Hitler boasted that the swastika
on his chancellory would glow for a thousand years and that not one stone would
be chipped from the Brandenburger Gate. What do you say to that, Men of the
Army Air Forces? Shall sentimental fools preserve Berlin this time? The Rus-
sians and the RAF will have something to say about that--and so will you.
But do not forget that other city--Tokio.
There a bespectacled monkey-god lives in his sacred palace. In Tokio, the
Ginza is bright with stolen goods and the Yoshiwara is crowded with girls sold
for a sack of rice. In Tokio, the proud architects of a new culture met to
plot the infamy of Pearl Harbor. From Tokio they sallied forth to lay a hun-
dred Chinese cities in ashes; to rape and pillage Singapore, Surabaya and Ma-
nila. And the people of Tokio shouted "Banzai Nipponl" which means a thousand
years of life to Japan.
A thousand years for Tokio? The clock ticks. The sand trickles. The brag-
ging toasts are proposed and drunk. Berlin stands. Tokio stands. And so did
Sodom and so did Gomorrah. But on a wall the flaming letters read: "Mene, mene,
Germans and Japanese, it will not be a thousand years. You are going to get
it sooner than that. Tokio and Berlin are going to get such punishment that
the next leader who cries "Warl Warl" in those towns will be stoned by a mob
and choke of his own blood.

MAJOR ADAMS IS
It was with deep regret that
the boys said goodbye to Major
Miller when he left last week
on orders from Maxwell Field.
From what your correspondent can
gather, the sorriest one to see
him leave was Major Adams who
succeeded Major Miller as acting
post surgeon. We sincerely hope
that before very long MajorMiller
will be back with us but feel
highly confident that the hospital
administration is in as capable
a state as heretofore.
Those of us who ever doubted in
what high esteem the medical De-
tachment is held by the men cur-
rently returning from overseas
had better take a lesson from our
own Butch Pellerin. He was al-
most maimed the other day when he
admitted sheepishly that he was a
member of the Pill Roller outfit.
That smile-you saw on Lt. Koen-
ig's face was the result of a re-
prieve he obtained from the' Great
White Father at Maxwell Field.
I don't think any one was as glad
to hear of that reprieve as much
as Sgt. Luke and his boys.

Fearful of a sudden shift in

Matthew Arnold's classic poem,
'Dover Beach.' 'On the French
coast the light gleams and is
gone,' wrote the 19th century
English essayist and critic more
than 60 years ago. For several
weeks now, lights along the
French coast have been carefully
dimmed by the Nazis in expecta-
tion of continuing air attacks,
and evacuation of some channel
districts already has been order-
ed. It requires only a blend of
the imagination to stir up a
picture of French patriots steal-
ing past the guards, to light
driftwood fires on the beaches,
that will guide Allied fliers on
the invasion night.

grim game of hide and seek as-
played by the Japs and our own
forces goes on. Ever since Aug-
ust 7, 1942, when the Marines
landed on Guadalcanal in the Sol-

progress. With the rare cunning
of animals, the Japs have employ-
ed to fullest advantage their
knowledge of the islands and the
many natural places of conceal-
ment to screen their activities.

Nazism is an ideology for the
reconciliation of impoasibles.
Undismayed by uncharacteristic
losses and the increasing peril
of the German divisions fighting
in the Dnieper bend, the Nazis
are rushing fresh words to the
front lines of their newspapers
to relieve the tremendous pres-
sure on their verbs. In language
so brilliant that it blocks the
imagination, the wholesale rout
in Russia is thus described. 'Our
eastern front from Vitebak to the
Bthck Sea is moving westward.'
Westward indeed, and being moved

nothing, or nobody, including the

907TH GETS EFFICIENCY FLAG
'Dear Aunt Lulu:
.I'm always getting into trouble
with cops and M.P.'s. My car
won't go over 80 .. I tried only
last week .. but they're always
abbing me for something. Can
u suggest how I might snow cops
and .P. s under?
One way, of course, is to step
on the gas as soon as the cop
heads for you. However, this
method is no good unless your
license plates are equipped with
little window-shades that drop
when you press a button...other-
wise, he's sure to take your
number and catch up with you
Another method is to equip
your car with a collapsing run-
ning-board. Thus, when the cop
comes up and puts his foot on the
unning-board, it collapses...
ils throws him off balance, both
physically and mentally. It
ruins his appraoch, and from
there on you can brow-beat him
into letting you go free.
Another method of keeping the
cop from getting out the old pad
and writing you a ticket is the
corny excuse, "I was just rushing
down to the station to buy a
ticket to the policeman's ball."
However, the new, modern approach
to this is a complete reversal...
und-er the new method, YOU sell
him a ticket to the policeman's
ball. This is not recommended
unless you're a fast-talking
Method number four...or is this
five? Oh, well, it doesn't mat-
ter...this method you get in the
op'ss good graces by pretending
co be an ex-cop yourself. Or
else, pretend to be the Chief of
Police. If you're a woman, this
won't work...but then, if you're
a woman, you shouldn't need all
this advice on how to get in a
