Acting First Sergeant Forrest L. stan, Signal Corps, received more than his rightful share of good news this week. In fact, it is seldom that any soldier gets as much exciting and welcome news in a single day as came to Sgt. Boylston las t Monday. In Monday morning's mail the Sergeant received an orde r to a ppear before an examining boar d at Maxwell Field for Officer Candidate School and later that day he was informed that he had been from corporal to sergeant. The most important changes were those aEe limits at 18 and 26, and the of college credit requirements. Formerly, candidates had to be 20 years old and had to have two years of college i n an accredited institution, or else pass a stringent test. Under the new requirements, all applicants for aircrew training will take a uniform simplified test wt1ich is designed more to determine the applicant's ability to absorb the course of instruction than it is to measure his formal education. The new test is of the typ e in which the a pplicant chooses the correct More than 300 recruits h ave arrived at answer frorn f'ive possible answers to each Tyndall Field and have already begun an question.

Detachment Commander is Capt. John M. Wilkins with Lts. J.E. Joseph R. Brantley and Samuel w Bright assisting. Playing an important role in recruit training are a large number of noncommissioned officers. immediate appointment as aviation cadet. Under old requirements the appointment had to come from Washington. The successful candidate will receive approximately seven and a half months of flight training; $ 75 per month plus $1.00 per day for subsistence; lodging, necessary clothing, equipment; medical care; and a $10,000 life insurance policy dur-ing the training period. Upon graduation the cadet receives a clothing allowance of $ 150 cash.


"For the Lord hath driven out from before you great n ations and strong; no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day .. One man of you shall chase a thousand; for the Lord your God He it is that fighteth for you, as He hath promised you." Men of the Air Corps--what a promise! What assurance we have of victory! Why are we granted such assurance? It is because we are fighting for freedom of speech, of press, and most of all, freedom ""O"f'"religion. Our enemies now are so ruthless that Christians.are now being put to death if' they attempt to meet together for and to possess a Bible is still certain death in those countries. How many of you are now taking advantage of the great privilege to assemble yourselves for Worship? In this connection all members of the Post are invited to attend services each Sunday at 9:30 AM i n building 310 ( enp;i neer's marker 38 c/4, near steel water tank at south end of field) regardless of your faith or denomjnation. Come! Let's surprise the Chaplain next Sunday. After all if our liberty and freedom of religion is worth fighting for, it i s worth enjoying by taking a part in it. After all a man's morale is just as high or low as his spiritual condition. Regardless of other entertainment, good food, etc., there are hours of unfilled time, and that is when his morale is either high or low and it is judged by his inne r s oul. If' you do not have the Peace which passeth all understanding begin going to Church next Sunday. Your TYNDALL TAtl.GET goes on the air ove r Station WDLP, Panama City, every Friday night from 6:15 to 6:30. Tune in for news about the men stationed at Tyndall F'ield and for the soldier's f avorite p o pu lar songs as p layed by the nation's leading dance orchestras. Send :rour requests to TYNDALL TARGET, care of Station 'NDLP by Thursday of each week.

HEADQUARTERS AND HEADQUARTERS In spite of the fact that Spring is not here yet, it seems that a young man's fan. cy has already turned to thoughts of love. That young man is Cpl. Frank T. High. It is a known fact that Corp. High made a romantic proposal one night not long ago, so we are all wishing him the best of luck and are crossing fingers that he was not rejected. However, in all probability, we '11 soon be hearing the familiar strains of Comes the Bride." Al:t was taken for granted that nsmil Jack" Sikes and Will Barrios were the best of friends but evidently the tide has turned. Sikes was seen uptown Tuesday night, sporting Will's girl on his arm. Give us an explanation, Jack. Did you fellows have harsh words? Looks as though Reginald 11Flunkie'' Mc Kaig will be in the market for a new girl friend soon. Everyone in the Squadron is writing to "I<'lunkie's11 girl except Flunkie himself. Three new men were assigned last week, having been sent to this station from Jefferson Barracks. Arnold Milgaten was an administrative clerk at JB, Tony Janucevic an amateur instructor in photography, D aniel Levinson back in the good old civilian days worked with Woody Herman's top-notch band. He also has a "Tony Pas tor" set of vocal cords. Pvt. Walter F. Parker, Jr., has reJ01ned the squadron after having successfully completed a specialized course at the Sperry Co. in New York. ------w.

Sgt. Gossett, of GOSSETT'S GOSSIP fame, made a whirlwind tour of Tyndall Field this week, trying to make amends for some digs in his column last week. Sweatin' Staff Sergeant? Who is the private still sweating out learning his General Orders so he can get a pass? The bulging athletes of the squadron can now demonstrate their abilities on the new volleyball court and horseshoe boxes constructed this week, while the more genial and cultured members of the organization, i. e., Goldberger, Reitman, Diamond and Hetherington, stick to their nightly game of bridge in the Day W e welcome our new recruits from Camp Blanding and we are confident that they will all make good soldiers. Sgt. Ver rett is in charge of their training.-T.W 343RD SCHOOL SQUADRON "Something New Has Been Added"----The 343rtl has a new commander, Capt. Gardner. and a new adjutant, Lt. Carr. We want to welcome the new officers and want them to know that we are with them 100 per cent. Congratulations to the newly appointed sergeants: John Carder, Robert Kelly, W e also want to welcome sjsgt. Ernest w Stone to our fold. Glad to have you with us. Haps and Mishaps: New basketball captain is that Florida flash, Gerald (Dead Shot) Merritt We want to send our deepest regrets to the "400" of Boston. Sor ry that Pvt. Eberly is not with them and that they have to contend wi.th Vanderbilt, Morgentheau and a fmv others. Congrats: Sgts. Jenkins and Hubbard. $ 64 Questions: Why does Pfc. (Available) Jones long for Mississippi? Why is Pvt. Merritt so slow? Is it beer on the knee? iVhy do Sergeants get bald sooner than other folks? Wny does Pfc.

Owen, C.V. 1 liller, aild Vi. L. Regan. Unconfirmed rumor has it that 1st Sgt. Littel is trying to ge t White's C afe (or, at least, the employees of the same) move d into the Day Room. We're sure that such a move would eliminate passes to Panama City. Wny such frequent letters to the Univ ersity, C,.D.C.? Wacky over a .slaphappy lassie from T allahassee? More power to you, Chuck She'. s a very charming lass Wonder why a certain Hollywood Corporal has developed such a strong set of lungs? cari see the stripes, "Red."

Murphy, Corp. Nogulich & Pfc. Gaddis. 69TH AIR BASE SQUADRON 1'he stripe-.happy boy.s of the Fighting 69th found themselves snowed under last week when a number of rec.ruits j.oined t h e squadron and started shooting questions at the recently-appGinted NCO' s .. even S gt. Price of the personn-el Section felt t he -effects of the boom. Fo r the information .of the inquisitive fellows from other squadrons: The new fenee in front of our barracks (and we're proud of it) is to pr.event the new e "John s" fr.om e:,oing over the hill .. 1la lf U1f 349TH SCHOOL .SQUADIWN M any of the boys are finishing schoo l and are comin g to this organization for the first time. The last was Pvt. Greenwald. "Jar the concrete" and "Hit the deck" are some of the encouraging calls for all to roll out. t


Pvt. Hancock had an accident last week and we hope he recovers in a hurry. Who is "Peanuts?" Pvt. MacLaren seems to take his new duties as Day Room orderly quite seriously. The entertainment sponsored by the Baptist Church is appreciated by all of us. At least 25 from this outfit attended the little party following the Sunday night service. And who is the proud "Papa?"---H.B. 446TH SCHOOL SQUADRON S/Sgt Stewart, better known to the boys of the 446th as "Uncle Stewart," has our appreciation for his excellent work as A & R Director. Under his supervision a volleyball court has been set up behind the barracks, and the fellows are finding a great deal of fun in playing and developing teamwork. Wives of S/Sgts. Lax and Pope were assigned and joined while ter Halves" of Corp. Rowley and han are reported DS en route. recently the "Bet Pvt. Mee-Pvt. Gruza, who has been ill in the Panama City Hospital, is reported improving. issued gas masks are being in readiness for the next gas attack from the paper mill. ---D.B. 448TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Members of this outfit have been wondering if perhaps they haven't established a record of some kind. In just two short weeks four soldiers have held down the job of "top-kick." Can any squadron beat that one? We are fortunate in having two officers like Capt. Henry H. Hunter and Lt. Kenneth P. Miller. Capt. Hunter has been with us but three weeks but already he has proved himself to be a swell Command ing Officer and a fine leader. Because the squadron has had so few men available for details in the past, we have had little time for organized sports, but under the new training program we ex-pect to offer more than enough competi tim in the various sports. We would like to take this opportunity to commend Major W.F. Shipman on the good job he is_ ,doing in providing entertainment for i large number of men. How about another of those dances, Major? The last one was a big success. to all the men who were promoted the first of the year. To list them would take a page of TYNDALL TARGET, but we'll add nice going, men. --L.T. FINANCE DETACHMENT Our Finance Department at Tyndall Field was activated January 6th. Lt. Emory M. Shofner, formerly stationed at Maxwell eld, Ala., was appointed Finance Officer and Detachment Commander. T/Sgt. Luther R. Underwood, Pfc. Edward M. Morgan and Pfc. Carl G. Brandt reported for duty January 2nd, joining Pfc. John E. who had come here from Fin ance School at Holabird, Md., early in Dec. On January 7th, the following ratings were announced: Pfc. Morgan was rerated specialist first class, Pfc. Farr was appointed specialist first class also, and Pfc. Brandt was rated specialist second class. Six new men joined us on the 6th from Fort Bragg, N.C.: Pvts. Anderson, Hanak,. Beegle, Blazak, Clooney and Costigan. And last, but not least, the Finance Detachment of Tyndall Field has adopted the slogan of "Keep 'Em Paid.": --C.B. 447TH SCHOOL SQUADRON The men of the 447th give three rousing cheers of welcome to their new CO, 1st Lt. Samuel E. Williams. In the short time he has been in command he has gained the respect and cooperation from all of us. And another hearty welcome to 1st Lt. Joseph H. Pittenger, who joined us again after an absence or : a few weeks. Orchids to Pvts. Harry v. Howard and Henry M. Gooden, who have left to take up


training for Flying Cadet. Lots of luck, fellows. We '11 all work together to "Keep 'Em Flying." It looks as though our supply sergeant has acquired a new theme song: "Daddy." We extend our sympathies to the new recruits of Tyndall are receiving their training under Sgt. Mills and Mattocks. Lucky boys, you 11 When better soldiers are made, Mills will make 'em. From KP to Corporal in one hour. Con gratulations, Corp. Keith. We also wish to compliment Corps. Rabick and Edwards for acquiring that "double stripe." An unsolved mystery is where Pfc. Bender and Hirsch spend their eveninbs. By the way, what happened to Pvts. Laffer, Stinky, and Lampros Monday morning? Sweat it out, fellows. F-1-A-S-H For the 48th straight week the "booby" prize was awarded Pvt. Wein stein. The 447th again claims top honors in winning the basketball game with 446th. Final score: 21-16. Nice going.---J.L. 856TH SIGNAL SERVICE COMPANY I understand Sgt. Boylston went before a Board of Officers Monday. Did you see him when he returned'! We believe he will survive. He is hoping to attend Officer Candidate School at Fort Monmouth, N. J. If he passes the course we'll call him Se cond Lieut. Boylston." And after he's gone perhaps the First Sergeant will be able to have quiet after "Lights Out." When it comes to moving, you can't beat the Signal Corps, at least, we've had e-nough experience after packing up at least once a week for the past month. Caution-all drivers! "Slim" is driving a truck for us now. Corp. Stansberry says he does pretty good--BUT. And, by the way, you'd better be good to the Signal Corps boys. We're operat ing the switchboard for all Tyndall Field calls. And be careful what you say. Sometimes we can't help but listen to you whispering "sweet nothings."---D.P. QUARTERMASTER Banker Herb Ruess, who was with the Chase National Bank formerly inN. Y. City, is in a quandary over the meaning of the letters "S-M-R-L-H" which he noticed on some of the letters the boys te ceived. It seems that Pvt. M. D. Varnell has been catching "K P" consistently for the past month. 'Tis rumored that it is due to sun-spots "stew bad." Dept: does Pvt. Fulton his shoes like mad, slick down his hair and dress, oh so carefully? Does he have a heart-beat at the field? Don't ever ask Pvt. William J. Sousa _to g o over to the PX for a coke. Rumor has it that after a few hours of waiting a couple of the boys sent out a St. Bernard with a flask and a map of the field. Yes Sir, we surely do -have the "bar" represented here in the QMC. Pvt. Sam Schenker was an attorney at Annapolis, Md., before entering the service and is a graduate from the Univ. of Maryland, Class of 1941. Things we'd love to see: Tyndall Field complete with paved roads Bill McNe. without his many bottles of tonics, etli'' A bus line right to our company street The day when we're issued khaki shortsfor summer wear and those cute kneeleng;th stockings. Woop!1 No hoops to roll, my deah? Scoop: Berkey, the QM Det. Cook, decided to take a dip in the briny deep during the wee, small hours the other morning. Far be it from us to tattle, as you may know, but Berkey's "keel" was scraped and scratched as he hurriedly tried to climb up one of those pilings forgetting barnacles in his mad rush to get out of the icy water. And then there's the one about Pvt. Engles, who hails from Indiana, when he took a walk down by the Gulf. Forr,ett ing that "'rime and tide wait for no man," he strayed out to the end of the pier, on ly to be marooned. 'Nuff said.---R.G.

I A Twist of tile Jfn'st II MOVI.BS fir t.ltP N'PPJj best friend may still be his dog but you can bet that the radio .isn't far behind. Rover's antics may be funny, but you'd look awfully silly laughing at the last joke he told you. Perhaps that's wrw the radio will never replace the canine pet in man's affections, either that,or because dog food is still cheaper than radio tubes. Kidding aside, though, since radio without a doubt has become one of the greatest mediums of education and entertainment in the country, we owe it to ourselves to get the most out of it. So, keeping in mind that moment in the soldier's daily life when he stretches himself out on the bunk and gives his "Marconi" a twist of the wrist, we want this column to aid him in determining which way to turn the dial. Here are some tips, day by day: SUNDAY Almost any _program is worth listening to, and among the better ones is the Family Hour (4:00PM CBS). Music, popular and classic, by accomplished artists and featuring Gladys Swarthout. MONDAY -Relax to 15 minutes of varied music by Fred Waring's crew ( 6:00 PM NBC) .. They always satisfy. TUESDAY -You have two aces here: the Treasury Hour (7:00 PM NBC Blue) and one of radio's greatest comedians, Bob Hope (9:00PM NBC Red). WEDNESDAY Top combination of mystery and comedy is the Thin Man series (7:00 PM NBC Red). The Quiz Kids hold forth at the same time over NBC Blue. Of course Fred Allen (8:00 PM CBS) and Eddie Cantor (8:00 PM NBC Red) make it tough in deciding whether you want to laugh with gas or toothpaste. THURSDAY -Frank Morgan, Fannie Brice, and a swell gang make this coffee program one of radio's most "listenable" halfhours (7:00PM NBC Red). FRIDAY -That grand veteran of the air, Kate Smith, scores another direct hit with her 60 minutes of variety via CBS at 7:00. SATURDAY Your Hit Parade still rates No. One billing for this night. Tune in CBS at 8:00 PM. However, for those of you who want a real treat in music dial Arturo Toscanini on NBC's Blue at the same hour. Keep Tuning Pvt. Arnold Milgaten.
