TYNDALL GUNNERY PILOT RECEIVES SILVER
STAR FOR HEROIC ACTION WHEN CRPPPLED
'FORT' DOWNS ENEMY FIGHTER
Fighting their way through a deadly maze of enemy fighter
planes and heavy anti-aircraft fire, a crew of a crippled Fly-
ing Fortress reached its objective over enemy territory, bombed
Its target and then, with the plane afire, all motors Inopera-
tive, and the cockpit instruments demolished, managed to shoot
down an enemy fighter before "hitting the silk."
This heroic action recently
won for 1st Lt. William A.
Slaughter. of Augusta, Ga.,
aow an aerial gunnery pilot at
Tyndall, the Silver Star, 'for
gallantry in action at great
risk of life and against over-
whelming odds." The medal was
presented to Lt. Slaughter at
a review parade by Col. John
W. Person, commanding.
Lt. Slaughter and his crew,
although suffering from in-
juries received in the air
battle, made good their escape
from enemy occupied territory
sometimes passing "right under
the noses of the enemy, and
were highly praised in the
citation for the teamwork that
made it possible.
The citation for the crew
reads in part as follows:
'This gallant crew of a B-17
type aircraft was heavily at-
tacked as they were nearing
the target by a large forma-
tion of enemy fighter air-

DWIGHT BOILEAU, THE MIGHTY MITE
Several months ago there appeared in
The Target an editorial entitled "Why??"'
In it reference was made to the "indi-
viduals who, despite the lack of cooper-
ation and appreciation by the men on the
field, consistently volunteered their
talent for the field's entertainment
activities." One of the men we had in
mind whenwe wrote those lines was S/Sgt.
Boileau left us on the recent shipment
of men to Maine. For two and a half
years his fine tenor voice was the high-
light of the leading field social func-
tions, including many wedding cere-
monies. He could always be depended
upon to lend his cooperation to any
project where it was felt his talents
were needed. He was one of the leaders
of the group which put on the first T/F
radio show over WDLP back in February of
1942. He shied away from publicity,
whether it was praise for a performance
on the stage or a boost to his reputa-
tion as one of the field's top-notch
clerks. He arrived on the field a buck
sergeant, and left here one grade higher.
We never once heard him gripe about it.
That's the Tyndall background on Dwight
In last Sunday's Dothan, Ala., "Eagle"
there was a full column devoted to the
most recent deed of the former Tyndall
soldier. Dwight's home is in California,
but he decided that instead of spending
his delay enroute on a train between
Maine and California, he would spend
his free time near Dothan. His first
stop upon arriving there was to seek out
the county employment agent. The agent
referred him to a farmer in the vicinity
who was desperately in need of help.
Dwight went out to see the farmer and
immediately went to work. His first two
days were spent guiding an unruly trac-
tor through the rich Alabama soil. The
farmer and his wife practically adopted
him. It astounded the farmer's neigh-
bors that a soldier would voluntarily
seek such labor, particularly while
on a furlough.
The feature writer of the Dothan
Eagle omitted few adjectives in extoll-
ing Boileau's act of doing his part to
overcome the manpower shortage on the
farm. Put we weren't surprised when we
read about it. For those of us who
know Dwight, know that he will discount
his c ores on the farm with a shrug of
the shoulders and laugh it off as a
lark. Helping people out was an every-
day affair for him.
Boileau often was called "the mighty
mite," because he could do so much in
spite of his lack of height. It seems
as though he inesn't intend to slacken
his pace. But then, no real soldier
ever does--and Dwight is one of the
Remember the days, the days

BASIC FIELD MANUAL
For All Allies Attached to the Armed
PREPARED UNDER DIRECTION OF HIS MAJESTY
1. General Information: Soldiers should
be easy meat for temptation at this time
They are somewhat lonesome for hom
They are living on their own for the
first time. They like to have their com-
panions think of them as bad apples.
Their work is hard-and when they get
tired, they are easy prey for us. They
have no women in their life, and are
suckers for dirty stories. All the
restraints are off, which is just per-
fect for our business.
2. Arms and Equipment: (a) SEX. The
two great helps to our business in this
matter are dirty language and filthy
pictures. Let all the allies keep sug-
gesting dirty stories to the servicemen,
and when the GI hears a dirty story keep
pushing it home in his mind. Dirty
language, swearing, etc., will also be
a big help in winning these men for hell
Keep telling them that it doesn't m
any difference what they say...becaus
everyone else is saying the same things.
They will also be very lonesome for
their wives or sweethearts. ALL ALLIES
MUST CAMPAIGN FOR PIN-UPS! They are
first rate passports to hell.
(b) RELIGIOUS EXERCISES. Keep telling
them how tired they are on Sunday morn-
ing. This should be very easy, and a
little suggestion will keep them in bed
on Sunday morning. This is important
because when they go to church they get
great strength to resist us. Don't ever
let them go to Holy Communion, for that
is pure poison to our best work. Keep
telling them how hard it is to get food
after Communion, how the other men will
think they are panty-waists.
(c) CHAPLAINS. Make fun of the Chap-
lains. Chaplains are very dangerous to
our war-effort-and the best way to im-
mobilize their work is to make fun
it. Get your best workers to ride al
the GI's who go to see the Chaplain.
And particularly ride the ears off the
few zealots who help the Chaplains sab-
otage our work.
3. Safety Precautions: Occasionally you
will find a GI who says a prayer during
the day, that horrible thing that causes
us so much trouble and puts out so many
fires in hell. Work on him immediately.
One man who says prayers can ruin a
whole squad-even a division-for our
work. As soon as you find a praying
soldier, get your best workers to boob
the life out of him. Nothing is more
dangerous to our work than a praying
4. Security and Protection:. Above ev-
erything else, make fun of the zealo
who claim that the Devil has any infl
ence on men. This is a well-known fifth
column procedure that worked in all
countries in Europe, and will work with
dumb Americans too.
5. Reports: Full and detailed reports
should be turned in each week, and ad-
vice sought from Headquarters for indi-
vidual problems. If everyone will give
his whole attention to the problems com-
mitted to his change, we should be able
to increase the population of Hell con-
siderably and win many victories against
our Great Enemy, God.
Chief of Staff
Chaplain Taft A. Franklin, a Presbyterian
minister in civilian life and dow spiritual
advisor to the men of Triggertown, recently
decided to turn half of his office into a
chapel where the Catholic boys in the ship-
ping and receiving pool could say a prayer.
He received the enthusiastic support of
Father Dorney for his project, and when it
was nearly completed, Chaplain Franklin ap-
proached Father Dorney about a mural for
the little chapel. Father Dorney recalled
that a young Jewish boy, an incoming stu-
dent, had come to him several days pre-
viously with a problem, and while waiting
this lad had made several excellent pencil
sketches. Perhaps this boy could help.

he didn't know.
However, as luck would have it, Pvt. Leon-
ard Dworkins remembered Father Dorney and
stepped out from a waiting chow line to
introduce himself. When he heard what'
Father Dorney had sought him out for he
could hardly conceal his enthusiasm and
wanted to get to work on the mural immedi-
ately. Of course there was the little mat-
ter of getting relieved from K.P. and other
details, but headquarters readily gave con-
sent and Dworkins went to work.
Above is a photograph of the finished
mural, with the artist on the left and
Father Dorney and Chaplain Franklin on the
right. In the center of the mural is Christ
with outstretched arms. On the right panel

gunner kneeling before her. On the left

TYNDALL GUNNER, SHOT
DOWN, FINDS REFUGE
An aeria gunner who was gradu-
ated from Tyndall early in 1943
was one of 19 Allied fliers shot
down over Italy who found refuge
in the Vatican and were freed
when Rome was captured from the
Germans, according to press dis-
The Tyndall Field gunner was
Sgt. Bernard Louis Scallsi, of
The gunner was shot down over
Viterbo, Italy, and descended by
parachute. He was forced to
spend three months "in the wilds
of Italy," he said, hiding from
the Germans as he slowly made his
way to Rome, where he slipped
into the city and climbed the
Vatican walls at night.
A knowledge of Italian helped
him to obtain aid from the na-
tives in evading capture by the
His main worry while in the
Vatican, he told his parents in
a letter, was that a $100 check
he had written to meet his ex-
penses would bounce. "Make sure
there is over $100 in the bank,
as I don't want to be put in jail
for writing false checks," he
advised his parents. "Be sure
the money is in the right bank. "
While in the Vatican Sgt. Scal-
isi had tea with the American
minister and his family. "It sure
was good to talk nothing but Eng-
lish after being in the wilds of
Italy for almost three months and
speaking nothing but Italian."
The sergeant said that in the
Vatican "we lead the lives of
Italians stood guard around
Vatican City and it was hard for
the Allied soldiers to make their
way to the refuge which awaited
them there. But once they were
inside, the Vatican offered them
asylum in accordance with inter-
national law. They were well fed
and were not required to work,
but some volunteered as garden-

Youngest student gunner to be
selected as top man in his class
is Pvt. Charles M. Burton, 18-
year-old native of Paris, Tenn.
The ranking gunner of class 44-26
named his camera missions as the
most interesting phase of his
training here, "especially be-
cause of the excellent instruc-
tors on my missions."
"I used to hunt quite often at
home and therefore I had quite a
time on the skeet ranges," said
the young gunner.

Q. How much did my GI cloth-
A. Your complete uniform, in-
cluding your $15.50 wool overcoat
and your 5-cent cotton hanker-
chiefs, cost the government $114.86
at the outset. It also costs the
Army $75.37 a year to maintain
these duds for you.
Q. Look. I'm the member of the
ground crew of an air combat
squadron stationed in England.
The flying members of this squad-
ron are permitted to wear service
stars to show they have been in
combat. But my orderly room
tells me that ground crew mem-
bers are not permitted to wear
these stars because we have not
seen combat in the air. Ts this
A. No, your Orderly Room is
mistaken. The War Department
says that all members of a unit
credited with battle participation
may wear a bronze service star
on the appropriate service ribbon.
As a member of a ground crew
you come under this category.
Q. Will I be permitted to wear
my uniform after my discharge
from the Army.
A. You can wear it from the
place where you get your dis-
charge to your home, provided
that you go there within three
months of the discharge date. You
may also wear it at military cer-
emonies in peacetime.
Q. Is there anyone outside the
Army who is permitted to wear
Army officers' uniforms?
A. Yes. Officers of Allied Na-
tions on duty in the U. S. are auz
thorized to purchase and wear
U. S. Army officers' uniforms. No
U. S. Army insignia nor identifi-
cation will be worn with the uni-
forms, of course, as the co-bellig-
erent officers will wear their own
insignia. Press correspondents
also are permitted to wear offi-
cers' uniforms without insignia.

Charles Bennett of Boston and
Herb Kaufman of New York, battl-
ing in the 140 pound class, step-
ped into the ring In the opener
and set the pace for the bouts
that followed. The pair put on a
fast and scrappy performance,
with Kaufman gaining the edge by
virtue of several hard punches
landed in the third round.
In the second fight, Herb Crock-
er of Massachusetts and Joe Bor-
der of Missouri went through two
rounds without much contact and
it wasn't until late in the third
canto that Crocker opened up with
a flurry of blows which drove
Borden to the corner and kept him
there as the bell sounded to end
the contest, with Crocker earning
George Carbin of Boston, ap-
pearing on the card for the fifth
straight time, was matched with
John Anderson, Idaho, in the
third bout. The men traded
punches on even terms in the
first but Carbin was awarded a
TKO as Anderson failed to answer
the bell for the start of the
second round. He was stricken
with stomach cramps and forced to
leave the ring.
A pair of 160-pounders donned
the gloves in the evening's fourth
go, Dave Benson of Massachusetts
anm Amando Landlolinda of New
York. Both boys left little
doubt of their boxing skill from
the start and in the first round
several hard blows were ex,
changed, with the huskier and
shorter Benson apparently gaining
the edge in the initial frame.
However, in the second round,
Landiollnda opened up and caught
Benson with sharp lefts and
rights to the face which sent the
latter to the canvas for the
count of nine. As soon as Benson
was on his feet, Amando pressed
his advantage and resumed his
merciless attack, again driving
Benson to the floor with savage
rights, this time for the full
An exhibition match was on the
menu In the fifth spot, with
veteran Charles Blankenship and
Dick McDonough as the exhibitors.
Blankenship, fighting one of his
cleanest fights in months, traded
blows on even terms with the wily

its approval of the well-fought
exhibition at its close.
Nick Ranieri, former student
gunner and now an instructor, and
Charles Davey, aviation cadet
from Detroit, were the gladiators
in the TeatCre bout of the eve-
ning. Ranieri, a favorite with
the patrons, was making his first
ring appearance In more than a
month. Davey, on the other hand,
was fresh from his easy win over
Dinty Moore in the preceding
week's fights. They were well-
matched and most of the first two
rounds was spent feeling each
other out. In the third, the
boys again opened up cautiously
but there were several hard ex-

sounded. The contest was de-
clared a drw.

THREE HOMERS FEATURE TORNADO ATTACK AS
DICKERMAN AND SOUTHARD EACH HURL 6-HIT
BALL; LIVINGSTON'S RELIEF EXCELLENT
BRONSON, WITH WILLIAMS, HERE TOMORROW
There was enough satisfaction and glory in the Tornadoes' twin
victory over Ellyson this past weekend to be passed around in large
chunks to each member of the squad. First of all, it was the sixth
straight win, and Saturday's 6-0 triumph was the first shutout reg-
istered by the Tyndall team this year. Joe Dickerman hurled six of
the seven innings, giving up a half dozen hits. Only one Ellyson
runner reached third base. Dale Livingston took the mound in the
seventh and last inning and re-
tired the side without a hit.
In the field, the Tornadoes set
some kind of record by executing
a double play In each of the
first three innings. At bat, the
boys from Tyndall swung for extra
bases and connected. Shortstop
Billy Hines and Centerflelder Les
Tarr blasted out the first pair
of T/F homers in many a game,
while Second Baseman Hub Freeman
continued his distance slugging
with two triples in three trips
to the plate.
Sunday saw the Tornadoes com-
pletely avenge their two-game
setback by Ellyson in May, as the
Tyndall nine collected 15 hits
off two Navy hurlers and won the
ballgame 12-3. Lefty Southard
chalked up his fourth win of the
year, striking out 11 and walking
none. Dale Livingston relieved
Lefty In the seventh and contin-
ued the remarkable pitching by
fanning six of the nine batters
who faced him, giving up no hits
and also walking none.
Jack Polcynski, Tornado utility
outfielder, replaced Leftfielder
Orange in the sixth and followed
up his single in that inning with
a tremendous homer In the eighth.
Jack tagged the ball well and
many believe his drive eclipsed
that of Ted Williams when the
former American League batting
champ tripled in the Bronson game
here several weeks ago.
Tyndall scored its first run in
Saturday's seven inning contest
in the second inning on two hits.
They added another in the third
on the same number of bingles and
repeated in the fourth by virtue
of Red Tarr's booming four-bagger
into center field. The Tornadoes
concluded their scoring in the
sixth with three runs to bring
their total to six while the El-
lyson nine was being blanked by
hurlers Dickerman and Livingston.
Billy Hines' homer was the big
blow in that sixth, with two men
on base at the time.
In Sunday's tussle, Tyndall got
off to a flying start by bunching
three hits oh top of an Ellyson
error to score four runs. The
visitors almost closed the gap in
the second on Ramsey's triple
which scored Duffy and a field-
er's choice which permitted Ram-
sey to tally and bring the count
The Tornadoes added one in
their half of the third and
another in the fifth for a 6-2
lead, and then put the game on
ice in the sixth with another
quartet of runs. Polcynski's
round-tripper in the eighth with
one on scored the final pair of
Tyndall runs. Ellyson pushed
across its third marker in the
sixth on two hits.
This afternoon, on home grounds,
the Tornadoes will play the Fort
Barrancas r.ine, with Bronson
Field as the T/F opposition In
tomorrow's contest, also to be
played on the post diamond. The
T/F squad holds a 2-0 count over
the Barrancas players, while the
Bronson-Tyndall series stands at
1-1. Ted Williams, -Bob Kennedy,

former major leaguers, are ex-

the veteran Beau Dawkins donning

Last Sunday's game was strictly
a cne-man story--Jenkins. The
little right-hander who has not
lost a game this season was in
top-notch form, and dazzled the
Napier batsmen with a variety of
curves and fast balls. He fanned
15 men in seven Innings, and is-
sued only one free pass. He was
given sparkling support by his
teammates, especially Willie Ran-
dall at third base and Tom Adams
in left field. It looked like a
no-hit, no-run game for Jenkins,
but with one out in the last inn-
ing, Second Baseman Grimes tripled
to left center and Left Fielder
Williams singled to score the
losers' only run. In addition,
Jenkins led his teammates at bat,
bashing out three solid singles
in as many trips to the plate.
Tyndall tallied Its first run
when Shortstop Harrison, leadoff
man, belted the Initial pitch far
over the left fielder's head for
a home run. He circled the bases
before the ball could be re-
trieved and returned to the in-
field. Singles by Brown, Phil-
lips and Dawklns accounted for
another Tyndall tally in the
opening frame. The opening blast

walk, fielder's choice and single
by Jenkins. The Bombers were
held n check for theory te rest of the
game by Owen, who proceeded to
turn in a neat performance.
