A PLEASANT HOUR
To the rear of the Post
Library lays a little alcove
housing a combination radio
and record player.

recorded old and new world
loveliness of the great mas-
ters of music.
Usually the corner is filled
with the faithful, for it is
here that the lovers of good
things come to spend a pleas-
ant interlude surrounded by
the influences they enjoy -
books and music.
True, the musical library
is not comprehensive but it
does include many of the
world's greatest symphonic
masterpieces and several popu-
lar music albums.
There are also a number of
enlisted men who regularly
bring their own records with
them, providing an enjoyable
supplement to the library's
Many of the G.I.'s who nor-
mally shun anything that
smacks of the classics would
be agreeably surprised if they
would but come to the music
comer and just listen.
They would there discover
their old friend popular music
but in the more discreet guise
of classical tempo, and would
find that given half a chance,
Schunan and Beethoven are as
easy to get along wit) as Al
"Pistol Packin' Mama' Dexter
and the late Fats Waller.
Someday, far removed from
the pleasures we now have at
hand we may find ourselves
longing for the songs and
music we left behind. We'll
be thinking then, of the wast-
ed hours--the hours aimlessly
frittered away in pursuit of
Snatches of song will come
back to haunt us freighted
with the memories of home and
America..of pleasant hours
out of reach.
So if it's an easy chair and
an easy hour you are looking
for soldier -- you'll find
both in the music corner of
the Post Library.
Some of the brightest pages of military history are oj
noble characters whose lives and deeds are set forth in
brilliant light on the pages of the Bible. 2Tue military
glory and moral power here go hand in hand.
i. In Joshua (Joshua 1:24) we have the brilliant successes
of a valiant general whose every order was a carrying out of
commands from on High. Joshua's God fought for him and Joshua
fought for his God. The "turns" and "tides" of battle were
always in his favor because he and his armies did the will
2. Naaman (II Kings 5), a brilliant, kindly Syrian Captain,
received healing of the leprosy of his own life through
.simple obedience and faith in the God of Israel, an example
of one in high command yet taking a humble position before
his Creator and Lord, and being eternally blessed for it.
3. The Centurian of Capernaum (Hatt.8), whose public godly
faith brought healing to his servant, illustrates that kind
of commanding officer whose life and religion is an inspir-
ation and blessing to all his men, influencing them strongly
in the way of righteousness. God knows we need more of such
today; more General Dobbes, more General Montgomerys, more
men who unflinchingly stand for decency, sobriety, and god-
liness, men who are not ashamed to be known as Bible readers
4. The Roman Guard (Matt. 27) who, when Jesus cried out
on the Cross and bowed his head in death, openly declared,
"Truly, this was the Son of God, thus shed forever upon the
military the unestimable honor of having one of its calling
be the first to bear a mighty testimony to faith in a cruci-
5. Cornelius (Acts lo), the Italian Commander, not only
attended worship regularly and gave freely of his income to
the church, but also held meetings in his own home that his
soldiers and relatives might be converted to Christ.
In this day when so many soldiers and officers of rank
have succumbed to the grosser temptations of Army life, it
is good to remind ourselves of these and other soldiers of
the past and to pray that we, too, may not only be "good
soldiers," but "good soldiers of Jesus Christ" as well,

SHARP AS A (GILLETTE) RAZOR
As I P.f. c.
NOW AND FOREVER
Last Friday, the RAF's snooker
experts had a day of it over
Brunswick, in central Germany.
Bombs fell, Brunswick balked, and
another successful mission was
chalked up on the RAF calendar.
The high run was made close to
midnight at 12,000 feet by the
lead plane and the others took
their cue accordingly. When the
bombs hit, there was enough Eng-
lish on them to carry the veriest
fragments smack-dab into the
city's shelter pockets. In all,
it was a racking experience for
Brunswick, as the 2,000 tons of
bombs dropped by the boys from
Britain just about cleared every-
thing off Brunswick's big air-
plane production table.
Although Nazi Germany has been
using its pawns unsparingly in
the ancient chess game of war,
most of the blinding brilliance
is gone from its moves and in the
clear Italian sunlight its chess-
men appear to be of blood and
bone construction. The Nazis
held certain natural advantages
in the brutal battle for the for-
mer land of the Caesars and they
were further assisted by the foul
Italian weather and terrain that
helped slow the Allied advance
down to a walk. Yet, the Germans
have paid dearly for their pos-
session of salient peaks and tors
and we with them. Now that Amer-
ican troops have' dislodged the
last Nazi defenders from the
heights of Mt. Trocchio, the re-
maining mountainibarrier before
Cassino, the rate of the Allied
advance toward Rome should quick-
en. But whether or not the Allies
ever breach the Tiberian strong-
hold--the Nazis, while they have
no king, cannot escape the check-
mate in the offing.
On New Britain, American Marines
have taken Hill 660, strategic
height in the Borgen Bay area of
the Cape Gloucester, invasion
beachhead. Not to be outdone,
the Aussies took another nip at
the Jap flank in New Guinea the
other day and captured Sio, enemy
supply and barge point on the
northeast coast of the Huon Pen-
insula. While the acquisition of
Hill 660 does not promise the
quick fall of New Britain, the
marines, who are the current
darlings of Hollywood, are assured

REPORTER REVEALS FINER POINTS
bOF ALTITUDE TRAINING MI
For weeks we've dug up and
dished out dirt about the various
men in the outfit, and exploir.d
their weaker moments to the le-
light of others. Little is ever
said here about the finer points.
For instance Pvt. Hall's
eagerness in his work, not to
mention his War Bond sales...Pvt.
Art Stevens' stellar account of
himself as a member of the Post

ability in keeping his crew happy
and on the ball at the same time

Dugan and Checchi, all coopera-
tive and willing to learn...First
Sergeant Hill's ability to keep
his friends and influence them,
)too...Sgt. Howard's conscientious
attitude as a crew chief...Pvt.
Lines' efforts to get any assigi-
ed job done...Cpl. Chandler's
quiet efficlency...pvt. Lerner's
ability to take so much kidding...
Pvt. Torra's microphone person-
ality...and many more too numer-
ous to mention.
THOUGHTS IN PASSING: Pfc.
Alexander can say more in one
minute than you can understand in
five...Wonder if Pvt. Neilsen was
as overworked in civilian life as
he is now...One extreme Hill, the
other extreme Martin, on an over-
night together; um-m-m...Pvt.
Goldstein would make an excellent
racketeer when this is over...
Pvt. Smith, our Wac, has in-
fluenced the verbal tempo of the
office; a few slips last week...
Pvt. Charlie Smith suffered quite
a loss; bet he's still way ahead
though...Pfc. Dowling must have
missed his calling, whatever it
was...Miss Draper would make a
fine top-kick...Sgt. Blakely,
never a serious moment; wait a

iams, since he married, is notice-
able, better guy.

WHAT IS TYNDALLIZATION ?
The Amazing Story of America's Best-Kept
Secret of the War
Tyndallization as defined by Funk & Wagnalls New Standard
Dictionary of the English Language, is; sterilization by
heating repeatedly, giving time between for maturation of
bacteria; intermittent or partial sterilization.
This different method of sterilization was introduced by
John Tyndall a 19th century English physicist, born in Ire-
It is hard to say just when the Tyndall method of sterili-
zation was incorporated in the Flexible gunnery Training
Course but it's presence here as an integral phase of the
course removes any doubts which may linger in the technical
Upon their arrival at Tyndall bacteria (embryo gunners)
fall into two natural great divisions; amoeba and paramecium.
Viewed socially, the amoeba appears to be a sober inmate of
a single cell, the paramecium alas, is much cilia.
It now remains to develop these insignificant motes to a
point where after being subjected to six weeks of intense
Tyndallization, they may be permitted to emerge from their
training cocoons and like the much maligned caterpillar,
literally take wings and fly.
To the instructors is entrusted the delicate task of Tyn-
dallizing the fresh batches of bacteria.
To assure the complete success of the method, instructors
are given careful grounding in epithets and invectives to
rid them of any overlooked germ of courtesy.
Initial steps call for careful sterilization of the bacteria
and is intended to expunge all existing impressions and in-
fluences. Heat being necessary, blistering adjectives ex-
pressing personal opinions are favored by the instructors,
altho any utterance which raises the heat temperature of the
bacterial collar is acceptable.
When the bacteria have been exposed to heating repeatedly
and time has been given between for their maturation, some
evidence of dawning intelligence will be observed in the
brighter motions of the subjects, usually this phenomena
occurs after about four weeks.
Under no circumstance however are the maturated bacteria
to be assigned to air to air firing at high altitudes, for
-bacteria however intelligent, cannot survive rarefied at-
In the matter of bacteria who have failed to respond to
sterillaatlon, producing no new spores on Tyndall's existing
culture, the influence of Tyndallization must be immediately
withdrawn and the subject bacteria submitted to the casual
scrutiny of reclassification.
It must be remembered too, that hasty administration of
the method may lead to intermittent or partial sterilization
which is tantamount to a half-baked gunner; and great care
must therefore be exercised to avoid this dire result.
Note: After a month of Tyndailization properly maturated
bacteria will usually reveal these known characteristics.
a. Form colonies of their own, shunning the more permanent
forms of existence.
b. Descend in great armies on places of entertainment.
c. Evidence marked preference for Shakespearean characters,
to wit; Falstaff.
d. Swarm to the WAC contonment area and creep all over the
place, uttering strange, half-strangled cries. Up to the pre-
sent little else is known about these atoms of unrest.
Thus we enter the final phase of John Tyndall's method of
sterilization by heating repeatedly. The two week period
of air to air firing at undetermined altitudes well below
Distinctly apart from aeroembolism, is the existing danger
of indiscriminate allocation of colors and their effect on
the bacteria. Recommending red for an ultra-conservative

course we must mention that the

than S/Sgt. Lickey S. Marx's.
This week we see ist/Sgt. Thomp-
son and S/Sgt. Marx leave on fur-
lough. Of course we don't know
who is going to miss who on fur-
lough, but It is believed that a
certain Ist/Sgt. of a certain or-
ganization and a Panama City
school teacher are going to be
very disappointed when they leave.
I think now is a very good
time to hall our basketball hero,
S/Sgt. Finis F. Snowden. While
playing on the Tyndall Field post
basketball team S/Sgt. Snowden
has shown that the Army does pro-
duce some very good basketball
players. I believe S/Sgt. Snow-
den's average for six games is
somewhere around 14 points per
game, and that my friends, is
nothing to sneeze about.
Things are beginning to shape
up on our signs for the different
flights and we can thank our Com-
manding Officer and Ist/Sgt. for
the work that has been put on
them. Just wait fellows, an-
other day or so and you'll be
able to see a fine bunch of mas-
Pfc. Quickis taking over S/Sgt.
Marx's job with flight I and we
all know that we have nothing to
worry about concerning the flight
when he's on the job, but with
women, that's another story. How
about that Smitty? And then we
have the short silent type like
Cpl. H.S. Reed. He never says
very much but his eyes give him
away. Oh well, things can't be
good all over. I see where T/Sgt.
Stewart has gotten himself a
dictionary, so he can make out
the writing that the Ist/Sgt.
hands him, also the writing of
the squadron clerk.

ashes of London fell there, glowing again with British anger. The dead lamps of
Prague and Paris spilled flaming oil. Broken swords from Greece; bloody bayo-
nets from Serbia; rusty chains from Poland fell upon Hamburg. All the shatter-

stones of Europe pelted down.
Our bombs burst red--red as the blood of murdered Dutch children. The smoke
bloomed white--pallid as the starved faces of Norwegian women. Were there cries

from where the Allied Forces

pect from the French and other
secret undergrounds when the in-

How many boys from
won't come back ?
NOBODY knows the exact number. Nobody. But-
The number who do come back-on their own two
feet instead of in a flag-draped box-will be in exact
proportion to the job we do here at home.
For every minute that we can help shorten the war will
mean more lives saved. (213 Americans were killed
in the final day of the last war, and 1,114 were wounded
before the 11:00 o'clock Armistice took effect.)
*Now one way all of us can help shorten the war is to
tighten our belts and buy more War Bonds. Yes, still
more. And -. .

are able to, imagine-for a minute-that it's after the

"Catherine, I don't know how to tell you how sorry I
am it's such a shame about Joe it makes
me sick all over when I think how he'd be here today
if the war had only ended a week sooner."
Think it over. Can't you buy a few more War Bonds
to help end the war that week or month sooner? Sure,
it may mean giving up something, but what's that
compared to what they're giving up? And remember,

THOUGHTS OF A SOLDIER
ABOUT HIS SON
His little tripping feet are
songs sweeping across my vision.
His brown eyes 'dip perilously
close to mine and his lips cone
sweetly after, father and son
we walk together the dim passage-
way that leads to an almost for-
gotten boyhood. We have gained
the air and upon our left the
smells of the sea are sweet.
Here is a winding road eager for4
our feet and in the wave of nos-
talgia that intrudes upon the
moment, another comes to join
us--the boy that was I..how much
like my son...A boy's heart is
the world's heart and it stretches
far and away. With every delight
its being sucks in, its feet find
another crag, another hillock
for its body flung. Sun, wind,
the rain, are the finer languages
it employs when speaking to God.
Are these small brown legs of
earth? Yet do I see them kick-
ing up little cloud puffs as they
tip-toe across the distant star
lands on their way back to my
waiting heart. There is an im-
perious insistency in the close-
ness of my son's hand. So near
to God walks he that much of His
radiance and terrestrial splendor
attends his movements. His dear
face when -cupped in my hands is
all the world I would behold.
Bis eyes are my religion and I
worship at the golden temples of
his curling hair. His lips of
blurting innocence are gyves when
sweetly held to mine, and fast in
the steadiness of his gaze, my
soul thrills in the amazing glow
of our great love. This is my
son to me, his father..For he is
warm and wonderful when I am
chilled by close despair; wine
and water when my thirst is
risen; rest and haven, when of
this world I weary and am as-
sai led. -ETD

THE TYNDALL TARGET
Pge 12 THE TYNDALL TARGET
Warmin' the Bench
By SGT. FRANK DE BLOI8
CNS Sports Correspondent
---All About Bobo---
If you've ever seen Pete go tweet-tweet-tweet on his piccolo,
then you won' t want to miss it when old Bobo goes oh-oh-oh on his
oboe; or, in other words -- when Mr. Bobo Newsom starts blowing his
This bazoo blowing is due to take place any day now, for old Bobo
is due to hold a salary conference with his new employer, Mr. Connie
Mack, of the Philadelphia Athletics, an elderly gentleman usually
disinclinedlto pay the kind of money old Bobo likes to play for.
Old Bobo, who is the most well-traveled as well as the most com-
municative man in his trade, was sent recently to the Athletics
from Washington in exchange for Roger Wolff, a relief artiste, whom
Clark Griffith hopes will be a welcome relief from the garrulous
The day after Bobo was traded to the Athletics, he was reclassi-
fied from 3A to 1A by his Hartsville (S.C.) draft board and the day
after that he obtained a divorce from his wife in Las Vegas, Nev.
Then he came down with a toothache, which transferred with his talk-
ing. And when Bobo can't talk he's very seriously handicapped.
It is to be hoped, therefore, that Bobo will be meshing on all
incisors when he comes to grips with Mr. Connie Mack. If he is,
then neither the high lama of Shibe Park, the threats of his draft
board, nor his ex-wife's attorney will be able to talk Bobo out of
the fattest contract Mr. Mack has given any of his chattel in years.
Bobo likes the big dough. He's always got it: in St. Louis,
Washington, Detroit, Boston, Chicago and Brooklyn. In 1941, his
salary at Detroit was $40,000. He won ten games that year.
But whatever he's paid, he'll be worth it, for Bobo is one of the
greatest characters in baseball. He drives a Cadillac car that
bears his name in neon lights. He wears checkerboard suits and has
a set of chins that hangs down to his knees. He's the last great
ham tragedian of his time. And he can pitch.
Once he pitched a no-hitter for nine innings, only to lose on an
error and a fluke hit in the tenth. In 1933 he won 30 games and
fanned 212 for Los Angeles. In 1938, he won 20 and fanned 226 for
the Browns and in 1940 he won 21 and lost only 5 for Detroit. In
the World Series that year, he won two games from Cincinnati, one
of them on the day his father died. That's how he earned that
But the piece-de-resistance of Bobo's career occurred when he was
pitching for Washington against Cleveland one day. Earl Averill
broke his kneecap with a line drive in the third inning. Bobo
couldn't see anything funny about his getting knocked flat like
that, but everyone else in the park thought it was a riot. So Bobo
kept on pitching. He lost in the ninth on a cheap hit, went to
the hospital for three weeks, left on a Friday and pitched against
the Yankees on the following Sunday.
Bobo will show you the scars on his left leg at the drop of a
"Four times I broke that," he says sadly. "Once I was driving
to Chicago to sign with the Cubs and my car fell down a mountain-
side. I broke me leg. The second day I was out of bed I was kicked
by a mule. I broke me leg. The fourth time -- it was really the
first time -- I broke me leg sliding into second.
"Got two hits that day, too, Bobo recalls, "a single to left and
a double off the center field wall."

POST COLORED FIVE
WINS FIRST GAME
OF SEASON, 20-19
In a thrill packed game played
Wednesday night, the post colored
team at Tyndall Field nosed out a
fighting Rosenwald High School
quintet, 20-19. A capacity crowd
was treated to an excellent brand
It was the first game of the
season for both teams, and numer-
ous substitutes were used. The
high school team held a slight
lead at the end of the first
period, but the winners grabbed
the lead in the second quarter
and held it throughout.
Dwight Duncan, chunky right
forward, of the Tyndall team, was
outstanding. Besides leading his
mates in the scoring column with
eight points, he played a strong
defensive game, and was a con-
stant thron to the high school' s
plans. His running mate at the
other forward position, Irons,
gave a fine exhibition of ball
handling and passing, but was way
off in his scoring attempts.
For the losers, Right Forward
McCullan was outstanding. He
dropped 12 points through the
hoop to keep his team in the run-
ning, and Left Forward Byrd was
next in line with six points.
The Rosenwald team scored most of
its points on lay-up shots, as
the forwards feinted the Tyndall
guards out of position time after
time to score with ease.
Tyndall will play its second
game of the season next week,
