The face of this tight lit-
tle ball has undergone consid-
erable change. The far away
places are no longer at the
ends of the earth. Tibet,
Capetown, and the birds nest
of South Sea Islands are no
more than a hop, skip, and a
junp away. The war has uncov-
ered the dim and shadowy out-
lines of these distant places
and the air machine has parked
them on our front door steps.
War at its best is but a
savage entry in the peaceful
tournaments of the world. Yet
oddly enough this present en-
terprise of Mars is responsi-
ble for a definite advance in

"Over an English beach, everyone bailed out of a
Flying Fortress which internal explosions had turned

pilot, Lieutenant Nathew Vinson. As he broug.Rt her
down, machine gun ammunition exploded, and"~the entire
bomb load of oo000 pounds went up in single explosion
from the heat after Vinson crash-landed a few feet
from a heavily mined area. That's the account as
carried in one of our daily papers of a combat mis-
sion. Sounds like a conspiracy against Vinson. If
anyone ever could cry, "Everything happens to me, it
seems to me that itshould be Vinson. He didn't
though. Because that isn't the finish of the news
item. It continues, "Said Lieutenant Vinson: 'There
is only one explanation. The Man Upstairs brought me
down safely. I talked to Him. I talked to Him
plenty an.d He must have heard me.' Vinson escaped
with minor burns. "

"Amazing!" we would have said a few years ago. But
exhibitions of deep trust and confidence in God are
everyday occurrences in these days of peril.

In every plea to God for help and protection there
is a recognition of His loving care for us His crea-
tures. The point that I'd like to make is this. The
recognition of dependence by Vinson upon God should
make us think of the fact that we in the training
command should frequently acknowledge our dependence
upon God. Perhaps you need a general inspection.
How long is it since you publicly acknowledged God's
dominion over you?

similar groups now identified as
"Arms and Services with the Army
Air Forces" will no longer be
known as such after a new direc-
tive authorized by the Sectetary
of War has been put into effect.
The directive is explained in
)jhe following letter from General
L.H. Arnold, commanding general
of the AAF:
"To all personnel of the Army
Air Forces:
"The Chief of Staff has author-
ized by direction of the Secretary
of War the elimination of arms
and services branch distinctions
within the Army Air Forces. This
authorization marks a most impor-
tant milestone for the Army Air
Forces and was given In order that
we can build a more completely
integrated, more efficiently
functioning, harder hitting
team a team wherein the members
have but one loyalty, one purpose,
one distinguishing insignia.
You are all members of this
rceam whether you pilot the planes,
repair the guns, build the air-
fields, maintain the radios,
drive the trucks, handle the sup-
plies. or care for the sick and
wounded. Your teamwork in the
past has been the basic reason
for our outstanding success a-
gainst the enemy. Your efforts
toward greater teamwork in the
future will hasten the enemy's
defeat and 'unconditional sur-
Those of you who are presently
identified as "Arms and Services
with the Army Air Forces" have my
personal assurance that the job
of converting all personnel to
Air Corps and integratihg the arms
and services organizations into
functionalized Army Air Forces
organizations will bedone most
carefully and thoroughly over a
period of time, that all of your
special skills will be utilized
to the utmost, and that your op-
portunities for service and ad-
vancement will be broadened and.
enhanced, limited only by your
own abilities.
Because the effects of this
change are so far reaching and
important to the Army Air Forces,
the conversion must be orderly.
Commanding officers will receive
in the near future from this head-
quarters specific instructions on
steps to be taken in accomplish-
ing this conversion."

As I P. .c.


A 54 year old German workman,
Friederlch Schwarz of the city of
Daren, has been executed "for
spreading alarming lies about the
war situation" among his fellow
workmen on the heels of the It-
alian armistice and' the Allied
invasion of Italy. Specifically,
this latest victim of frazzled
Nazi nerves was charged with mak-
ing base remarks about German
troops in Italy. Slowly, perhaps,
but Lt. Gen. Mark Clark's men are
doing a little debasing them-
selves as part of a push that
will one day carry them to the
gates of the Eternal City. One
cannot, even as a Nazi, afford to
villify the master, for while the
number one man may be behind the
eight ball-it still adds up to

Last Monday, a Navy Catalina
flying boat registered a direct
hit on a 9000 ton Jap cargo ship
forcing it to be beached on the
coast of New Ireland, South Pa-
cific. The commanders of the two
escorting Jap corvettes will
probably have quite a bit of ex-
plaining to do. Altho unable to
knife their way thru the Navy's
tradition of 'setting them down
on the nose,' the Nip skippers
will have no trouble knifing thru
in the best Japanese tradition of
hara-kiri, only this time they
will not emerge with whole skins.
Near Athens, is Eleusis air-
field, scene of a daring escape
made by Yugoslav fliers when the
Nazi wave of conquest swept over
Greece in 1941. On Monday, near-
ly two years later, the fliers
came back to settle the score.

November 20. 1943 THE TYNDALL TARGET Page 5

Two events in which servicemen
are invited to participate have
been added to the weekly program
at the U'0 club in Panama City.
One is a mixed community chorus,
which meets every Monday night
at 7:30 P.M. Mrs. Hercules Pet-
tis, wife of a T/F officer, a
graduate of Peabody in Baltimore
and the Conservatory of Music in
Athens, Greece, is in charge.
GI's who like to sing are wanted.
The other is a class In ball-
room dancing, taught by Cooke
Freeman every Thursday night at
8 P.M. The dancing class is
followed by a social hour.


Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 20.-A double-
geared program being carried out
by the Ordnance Branch, Fourth Ser-
vice Command, is giving synthetic
rubber tires the works to determine
the actual value of synthetic retreads
on natural rubber tires and the re-
treading of synthetic rubber tires
with the same material, it is disclosed
by Captain Hugh M. Lokey, Jr., offi-
cer in charge of rubber conservation.
For some months the synthetic
tires used on Army vehicles have
been returned to the factories when
in need of repair, Captain Lokey ex-
plained. The factories, using synthe-
tic rubber, experimented on various
methods and shop practices in re-
treading these tires, then returned
to the Army for rigid driving tests,
under the critical observance of fac-
tory engineers. Results are checked
periodically during the tests which
are driven in all kinds of weather,
over various types of roads and un-
der varying conditions.
Another part of the program is the
retreading, by commercial tire re-
pair contractors, of natural rubber
tires using synthetic rubber for re-
treads. and applying the best methods
determined by the factories in their
experiments with synthetic retread-
ing. This class of retreads is also
undergoing severe test driving, with
the results expected to provide the
answer to the problem of keeping
American transportation rolling on
rubber made at home.

were milking the peasants of just
about everything they had, the
prevots, or agents, of the mare-

from the monarch, did the dirty

the chief trouble-shooter was
known as the Prevot Marechal.

Squadron A

Squadron A has just finished the
third week of school, which was
mostly range work, and the stud-
ents are really beginning to get the
old Tyndall swing. It seems as
though their main objection is the
obstacle course, but they'll learn to
love it if they live that long.

will write more tomorrow. Love .."
Squadron A seems to have trouble
winning an inspection but the day
is coming when we'll win one.
Pvt. Mario Londra is really a pop-

The gals really go mad about this
young lad whose voice could be com-
pared with Swoonatra.
We have all types of personalities
in this Squadron. Take Joe Stern,
for instance. Now this little fellow
has been in every branch of the ser-
vice imaginable. He has been a Ca-
det, an M.. P. and almost anything
you can possibly think of. Another

also- have the innocent type such as
Vincent Manno or Richard Fried-

missing a roll call or a formation is:
"I didn't know about it" or "Why
doesn't somebody tell me these
.things." We also have the lover type,

This past week we were honored
by having first hand information
from Lt. Rocco Astrologo who has
just returned from combat to enter
pilot training. Lt. Astrologo is the"
cousin of Pfc. Joe Monaco and stop-
ped at Tyndall for a visit before re--
porting for duty at his next post. The
lieutenant is a bombardier having re-
turned from the European theatre of
war after completing 25 missions'ov-
er enemy territory. He recounted
the mission that resulted in his be-
ing awarded the, Purple Heart and
-told how "flak" had got him in the

We're beginning to sweat out dur
furloughs that will be coming to us
next week. The itinerary is all
mapped out for us and all we gotta
do is to get on the train. We have-
had six pretty tough weeks here at
Tyndall and don't think that the next
phase of OTU won't be just as tough
but with the basic knowledge of gun-
nery that we' have had here at Tyn-
dall we should carry on commend-
ably. Where do wo go from here?
Who cares as long as it helps to-
ward ending the war.
We didn't get to see Aapalachicola.
Our flying field was done on the
line here and it saved a lot of head-
aches as far as getting the payroll
doled out. Between flying in the
mornings for half the class and go-
ing to school in the afternoon and
getting our quota of Military Disci-
pline and Close Order Drill on the
Blackstrop we certainly knew we
were in the Army. As one of the
students aptly put it: "You need a
furlough to wash your face."

The war at week's end shaped

forces in White Russia and the

Korosten is an important
rail junction on the railway
between Leningrad and Odessa.
That railway is the only north-
south line available for the
Germans. Yesterday, Korosten
fell to Soviet troops, thus
ending the rail line's use-
fulness to Hitler.
At Gomel, the Russians have
almost encircled the Nazi for-
ces. The Germans' escape cor-
ridor from that imperilled
city has been slashed to less
than 25 miles as a result of
the fall of the protective
stronghold of Rechitsa af-

Earlier in the week, Moscow
had admitted that Soviet
troops had been forced to
abandon several positions in
the Zhitomir region west of
Kiev in the face of furious

The Japs kept up their wild
claims of heavy losses inflict-

Jap reports have claimed ex-

has been denied by puzzled
Navy men.
American officials have been
trying to figure out the reas-

Perhaps, they think, it is to
bolster Japanese home morale.
But the American officials

Soldiers No Want
To 'Play Ball' at 6 AM
Ft. Custer, Mich. (CNS)-Miffed
because some of his charges failed
to turn out for pre-breakfast drill,
Sgt. Bill Rowe posted this notice:
"All members of this organiza-
tion will fall out for morning
drill at 6 AM. Cooperation is
necessary. If you men will play
ball with me I will play ball with
Later in the day someone
scribbled this appendix to the

is one 'hell of a time to play ball."

"sweating it out" but it was worth
it, as they had a 7 pound 4 ounce
baby boy. Sgt. Mueller hasn't got-
ten back to normal yet. Cigars were-
passed out and whiskey and ice
cream will be served for the next ad-
dition to the- family.
Several- of the boys are leaving on
furloughs and they are all adither.
Specially a certain Sgt. by the name-
of Strong. He plans to go ic skat-

organized and this week we bowl

Seems that S/Sgt. Gayla is always
making the headlines but then if he
behaved himself it wouldn't have
happened. The place was the Em-
bassy Club and he was giving moral
support to a luscious civilian damsel
surrounded by the Navy. I guess he

Kadet Kapers

Speaking for all the boys of the
Cadet Detachment, we wish to take
this opportunity to cordially welcome
our new commandant of cadets, Lt.
Glasser, and to wish Lt. Harrington
success at his new position with the
headquarters staff.
Well, our upper-class cadets took
to the "wild blue yonder" this week
a welcome change after four weeks
of ground school. Of course the 4:30
a. m. rise and shine stuff is a bit or
the rough side for the boys flying ii
the morning, but as they say ir
French, "It's a great life-if you
don't weaken."
A/C John Brown is seriously con-
sidering changing his name-seems
every time he tries to register at a
hotel with his wife he is met with icy
stares of stern apprehension And
A/C Sandy Bogart, one of our stal-
wart underclassmen, wants to know
if the PX will cash a phase check.
Oh, brother!
The opening of the cadet barber
shown in the near future appears as a
aerious threat to those "barber shop
details" so conveniently formed dur-
ing the time for PT. Think fast,
men, there must be another way out.

The newly commissioned second
lieutenant entered the Pullman
painfully proud of his shiny
gold bars. With the prospect of
a fat tip in view, the porter
proceeded to effect a liaison.
'Mo'nin', Captain.' In a short
time he volunteered, 'We'.s a
speck late today, Kunnel.' Then,
as the lieutenant made ready to
go: 'Brush yo' coat for yo',
Two minutes later he was in-
specting a ten cent tip. With a
bellow that could be heard
throughout the station, he shout-
ed at the disappearing officer:
'Goodbye, CORPORAL.'

Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 12.-Lend-lease
is working in reverse in England
where British workers are repairing
shoes and boots of American soldiers
in the European theatre at no cost
to the United States.
Records reaching Headquarters,
Fourth Service Command here, show
that not only shoes but thousands
of other items used by the American
soldiers are being repaired in Eng-
land and the British government is
paying the bill, including the salaries
of the employee. In the case of foot-
wear, a shoe factory in a small West
Country town is repairing 25 per cent
of the worn shoes of United States
troops in that area.
This factory, taken as an example
of other repair operations, is in
charge of an American officer of the
Quartermaster Corps, but it employes
British workers. The rebuilding of
American Army shoes is done on the
original lasts which have been sup-
plied for that purpose. The full
range of these lasts runs from size
4 to size 15 and the widths from AA
to EEE-138 different combinations
of sizes. In the rebuilding process,
the shoes are stripped down to the
quarters and revamped before being
made up with .-"-n-'y new bottom
Because the uppers have- been
broken in and are mole flexible than
is the case of new footwear, the
Doughboys usually ask for'"Class B
Issue" shoes meaning rebuilts-if
they are available, according to the
records received.

Hollywood: Jirny Durante says:
'It takes all kinds of people to
make a world--guys like me--and
the homely ones. Of course, I
ain' t braggin', you understand,
but you've gotta admit there's
something' about me that really
stands out. Dames know that like
nobody else, and nobody else mat-
ters. Now just today, for in-
stance, a swell-lookin' dame
comes up to me out at AMG where
I'm making' the pitcher, 'Two Sis-
ters and a Sailor,' and right
away I sees what she's got on her
mind--so I plays hard to get. I
admit it's tough resistin' her as
she stands there, her lips all
puckered qp, waiting' for the Great
Lover to give her a thrill--but I
holdsny ground. 'Please, Jimmy!'
she says. I shakes my head,i
'Just one,' she pleads. I shakes
my head again. (I'm a beast!)
'You just got to!' she says. So
then when I see she's suffered
enough, I gives in--and buys a
War Bond.'

Warmin' the Bench

- Stop He If You've Heard This Song Before -
CNS Sports Correspondent
Frankie Frisch never shaved a man in his life and he doesn't
know an olive oil massage from a Lucky Tiger rubdown, but he's
a barber just the same. In baseball par-lay, a barber is a
bench jockey, a talk-boy, a guy who's forever getting a grip
on somebody's cork--usually an umpire's.
The old Fordham Flash is one of the better umpire baiters in
the game. He's not quite as loud as Leo Durocher, nor as
apoplectic as Jimmy Dykes, but he's pretty good at the game
and he's kind of funny, too.
Arthur Daley, in the New York Times, tells one about how
Frisch once innocently walked up to an umpire in St. Louis
and asked him if he had a cigar in his pocket.
"Why should I have a cigar?" said the umpire, who had just
made a sad decision and was expecting something little more
warming from Frisch.
"I just thought you might," the Flash explained. "Because
you certainly looked like a cigar store Indian on that play."

Once in a while the customers write. A recent correspondent
is G.F. Kane, a guard at the AAF Intransit Depot, Natick,
Mass., who wrote complaining of this department's neglect of
one of his idols. Correspondent Kane is disappointed because
the name of Eddie Mahan wasn't included in this column's list
of all-time football greats.
Mahan, fullback on three of the late, great Percy Haughton's
powerhouse'Harvard elevens, was named to Walter Camp's All-
American team three years in a row. Correspondent Kane says
he was the all-around superior to Charley Brickley, or any
other back who ever wore the Crimson. 'He could kick, run,
and throw,' says Kane, 'and he was a wildcat at rarchesi.'

One dry while sports writing S/Sgt. Ray Schwartz was incar-
cerated at the station hospital at Camp Kohler, Colo., he was
approached by a cocky little Pfc. wearing an apron.
"Say," began the Pfc., "aren't you a staff sergeant?"
Schwartz nodded sourly.
"That's nice," said the other, whipping out a note book.
"It'll add a little class to the KP list."
Here's one we got from Pvt. Louis Chapman, of Jefferson
Barracks, Mo.:
Taking his post-induction eye examination, a rookie was
asked if he could read the 20-20 line.
'Sure,' he said. 'KZCYSYSQRZMNK. I knew the guy well.
Used to play guard for Notre Dame.


Last Thursday night the officers
and men of the Det. 2062nd Ord-
nance Company held another work
party at the Magazine Area.
Object: To consolidate all ammu-
nition stored at present in the
magazine warehouses by removing
it to other warehouses designated
for the purpose. Wow! What a
Members of the work party in-
cluded: Major Kenneth G. Emery,
post ordnance officer; 1st Lt.
Burt Applebaum, 2nd Lts. James R.
Glisson, James W. Langley, Jr.,
Rober. T. Birney, Robert K. Vick-
ery and W/O jg Merrill L. Yates,
a score of bucks and staffs with
a light sprinkling of techs and
masters and the rank and flle of
the ordnance company. It was no
night for goldbricks. After a
hard day's work the officers and
men assembled again at 6:15 P.M.
and at 7 the "party" was In full
In their fatigues, it was hard
to distinguish an officer from an
enlisted man, for there were no
"directors," and the officers
proved as adept at tossing the
boxes of calls. 30, 45 and 50s and

shotgun shells and links as any of
the enlisted men.
At 1:15 A.M., under a brilliant
Florida sky and the challenging
floodlights of the magazine area,
a cease and desist order was is-
sued...the job was done'. Offi-
cers and men piled into the wait-
ing trucks and headed for bed and
It was a rare sight and the men
of ordnance got a great kick out
of it. Major Emery and Lt. Bir-
ney had elected themselves as
chow-line KP's and how they did
tneir stuff! Expertly ladling
out the scrambled offerings of
war-minded hens to his hungry men
was broadly-smiling Major Emery,
while with equal dispatch at dish-
ing out the "'taters" was his
armament officer and fellow KP,
Lt. Birney. And. there were large
juicy pears for each and all,
bread and butter and jam, hot
coffee, and a word of commenda-
tion for a job well done. Ed
note: Greater love hath no man
than that as Major oro Lieutenant
he pulleth KP for his men.
Just another instance of the
fine cooperation existing between
the Ordnance Company's officers
and men, and acknowledging the
genuine contribution in work that
Ordnance is making daily to the
splendid record of Tyndall Field's
Flexible Gunnery School. A swell
job, fellast
-Pfc. E.T. Delbyck

Special Christmas music is be-
ing rehearsed by the Tyndall
Field Protestant choir, S/Sgt.
Dwight Boileau, director, an-
nounced this week.
The music will be sung at Yule
chapel services. The choir also
Is rehearsing carols which the
group will sing at different po-
ints on the field as was done
last year.
Sergeant Bolleau extended an
invitation to singers to join the
choir, which meets for rehearsals
in the post chapel every Wednes-
day at 7 P.M.

"Wanted: One skunk, of either
sex and definitely without odor. "
That advertisement appears in
the "Skunk Hollower," weekly
mimeographed paper which is pub-
lished by aerial gunnery students
in the receiving squadron.
The "wanted" advertisement
"As the Hollow's fame spreads,
we feel that the presence of a
live representative of our name-
sake is a definite necessity. To
be perfectly plain: we want a
pet skunk! If the public ever
learns that there are no skunks
in Skunk Hollow, we will find
ourselves knee deep in shame.
So, dear reader, send us your
skunk. We promise you he will be
Nell cared for and cannot fall to
be completely at home."

"What's Cookin'," a USO show
with an all-colored cast, will
make two appearances at Tyndall
Field Monday night.
One show will be at the Post
Theater at 6:30 P.M. The other
will be at the colored Rec Hall
at about 8:30.

A call for players for two Tyn-
dall Field basketball teams was
issued this week by M/Sgt. Wood-
row Busby, in charge of organiz-
ing the teams.
Busby said that anyone interes-
ted in playing should contact him
either at the 69th or at the Base
Photo &_Reproduction Department.
The two teams planned have been
tentatively designated as team
"A" and team "B."
