a Ole464se 10 1h& 'Personnel: May I invite members of the command to join in an "all out" program of thrift, saving and contribution. We have a big job before us--the job of doing more than our part toward winning this war. The months ahead will be long and hard. We will have to make many personal sacrifices. As you know, there is an acute shortage in vital materials. With slight effort on our part, we can join others in our country in allaying to a certain degree, this shortage. Razor blades are made of the finest tooled steel, and can be used for many purposes if gathered in quantities. Tin-foil also has a great salvage value. Receptacles to receive old blades will be placed in the toilet rooms of all buildings, also boxes to receive tin-foil will be placed in each and every building on the post. It is urgently requested that everyone cooperate in the conservation of these critical materials for National Defense. Saturday is pay day. Usually there are a few odd pennies in each soldier's pay. These pennies will not mean a great deal to the individual, but if contributed to a good cause, will mean much. I would like to request that all odd pennies received in your pay during the coming months be contributed to the American Red Cross. This organization stands ready at all times to assist a soldier and his dependents in. cases of emergency. During a crisis, they are always on hand, and may always be counted upon to do a wonderful job in relieving pain and suffering in war zones. They never miss being present on the site of major disasters. This organization exists entirely upon contributions made by right thinking Americans. Let's do our part, bit by bit, toward helping them in their work. Squadron commanders will place a box on the pay table this pay day and all succeeding pay days to receive such contributions as you feel disposed to make. Our country, at this time, is in need of vast sums of money, and every effort is being put forth to enlarge the sale of defense stamps and bonds. In purchasing these stamps and bonds, we are making a good, sound investment, in addition to showing our patriotism. Let's form a big club, to include every member of the command, and start now putting our dimes to use by purchasing stamps. Accumulate these stamps until enough are obtained to turn in for a bond. Those who are finan cially able to purchase the bonds outright are urged to do so. Bonds cost $18.75, and are redeemable for $25.00 at the end of a ten year period. There is no better way to lay by for a rainy day than the purchase of these stamps and bonds. Stamps will be available in the Post Exchange, the Post Office, and in each Orderly Room. Bonds can be purchased at the Panama City Post Office only, at present. May I count upon the full cooperation of each and every one of you in these three objectives?

HEADQUARTERS AND HEADQUARTERS We unanimously elect the "boy torn between two loves," Baritone Vance M. Edwards, as the squadron Casanova, with Big John Vinson running a close second. While we are on the subject, who can tell us why Big John haunts St. Andrews every opportunity he gets? Corp. Darius "Dreamer" Hinshaw seems to be mathematically-minded lately, but he doesn't count any higher than four. Carry on, Darius. We know you are capable of training those recruits so "Keep 'Em Marching." We have been hearing that lst Sgt. D. s. Howell will make some woman a good 11wife11 when it comes to keeping house and cooking breakfast. What naboot" that, Sgt. Howell? Pvt. Leon 1J'T. Avera has rejoined the squadron after convalescing from an operation which he underwent at the station Hospital at Fort Barrancas. We are all glad to see you back, Leon. A volleyball court has been set up in back of the barracks and the squad ron is getting "athletic-minded.'' Bas squads, a bowling team and volleyball teams are being organized under the direction of Pvt. Dan Levinson, squadron athletic director.--w.B. What is Bay Bridge? tell us. 66TH MATERIEL so interesting about East Maybe George Bukota can Can a person trade in a couple c rings for a watch at the jewelry store if a girl decides to return them to him? We say, "Yes." Authorityz Pvt. Harold B. Walton, who did just that. Pfc. Harold Goldberger discovered a large group of friends he never knew he had whe,n he received a 25 lb. box of food from home recently. Pfc. Billy Bagwell has laid in a store of peanut butter and crackers to live on until his one pair of pants are sent from the cleaners so he can march to mess in proper uniform. Pfc. Robley Evans was happy to receive a visit from his parents of Cas ey, Ill., last Tuesday. Is it true that Earl Moye has the necessary qualifications to apply for separate rations? Seven of our men have decided that they wanted a change of scenery. They volunteered for the parachute battal-ion. Cpl. Couch should make a good turret man. He is so small he could fit into the smallest of planes. S/Sgt. Flowers has notions of sending his little "pebble" back to Jacksonville for a while. He says the rent here is too much and he is going to set an example for the rest .of the shack men. s/Sgt. Edwards has tried the same thing with his attractive but to no avail.--T.R.W. 69TH AIR BASE The 69th boys are having plenty of fun these days with the recruits: The corporals and sergeants report that the new men are learning fast and are taking their training seriously. Goodluck to Pfc. Walter F. Mayer,who is now Aviation Cadet Mayer, undergoing training at Maxwell Field. Girl trouble is popping up again Pfc. Mullins was all smiles when he was with his girl the other night--until Corp. Coffee walked in and pulled his rank on poor Mullins.--J.F.B. WANTED: Soldiers with some talent to participate in a radio show to be broadcast from the field. See Pfc. Italino in Day Room, Bldg. 310.

344TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Once again this squadron has done its part to "Keep 'Er.l Flying." Corp. c. v. Miller appeared before the Cadet Board and has qualified for training. Pvts. c. E. Porter and H. c. Gilmer have already gone to Maxwell Field for pre-flight training. Sgt. M. W. Culver, Cpls. M. L. Miller, V. z. Raines and I. L. Young and Pfc. E. H. Barber have been sent to Lowry Field to take the power turret course. A number of young ladies from Panama City were entertained last Thursday night in the Day Room. Refreshments were served and dancing and games were enjoyed by everyone. W e appreciated the girls coming out on those G. I. trucks and hope that another party will be forthcoming. S/Sgt. L. G. GaineY: was suddenly taken ill Monday morning. We all hope for a quick recovery, so that the sergeant can "middle-aisle" this coming Saturday as he had planned. Reveille is now a rugged formation since the First Sergeant has to stand it.--A. J. C. 348TH SCHOOL SQUADRON As much as we regret it, this week it's going to be dirt. So here goes: lst Sgt. Skelton is surely an early riser. He comes in to tickle our toes every morning (?) and does it in such a nice way that we can't refuse to get up. Say, Stitt, how does the new bride like this rise and shine bus -ness? Calloway, you've surely changed your tactics. You've been hawing right out of bed lately. I'll bet Sgt. Skelton just tickles you to death. What's this I hear about Pvt. Terry? Hear he spent his last penny for school books. Has he been dating a school teacher, too? Why does Corp. Priddis like guard duty at the Armory so much? And, say, Corporal, are you still sweating? And we don't mean sergeant. Sgt. Houston, are you straight with the world and your women now? And, Sgt. Reno, what kind of fish did you catch in the Gulf last Saturday?--H.M. 349TH SCHOOL SQUADRON e Corp. Schultze is now back in the fold. The squadron basketball team chalked up a second straight win by defeating the 66th Materiel Squadron after trailing by 12 points at the end of the first quarter. Sgt. liogers and Pvts. G. A. Bennett, Burnell, Hannnett, Parson, Gonzales, L. c. Bennett, Thompson, Szukiewicz, Berndt and Stanton left for Lowry Field in good old Colorado. Many of the fellows are braving the nice, cool Gulf to get their first taste of the salty brine. Pvt. Richey left for Kelly Field to begin training as a student pilot. 2nd Lt. Davis was assigned duties that require him to be at Maxwell Field. Pvt. Dean has left for home on an emergency furlough.--H. B. 350TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Supply Sergeant Suarez has started to work on our basketball team and here's hoping that he turns out as good a team as when he was in charge of our touch football team. However, he has a blond inspiration which should help to set his world on fire. A number of new men have joined the squadron from DS and we bid them wel come and hope that we will all get acquainted soon. 1st Sgt. Anderson still. has that far

D T 446TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Upon paying a visit to the 37 recruits recently assigned.to this outfit, Sgt. Boileau ran into a barre.ge of French from every. side. A pparently, the new 446'ers corne mostl y from Louisiana and are of French origin. Sgt. Boileau called to get sorne information fro:n the new men and ended up by spending the evening answering a thousand and one questions that recruits are always full of. Pvt. Levy will soon have "before" & 'after" pictures on display. His new body-building equipment promises to do g reat things for his physique. A NCO school has been started to give the squadron non-coms a chance to brush up on givine; orders. T h e recruits will serve as guinea pigs. Some of the boys think that Lt.

ORDNANCE When will Stabler and Hicks settle their feud? vVhat is the admission to see Pvt. Stanley perform his settingup exercise which he has scheduled every night? It seems that T/Sgt. Ratley has really decided to settle down to home life. He was seen carrying shrubbery by the arm-loads the other day. Some people just can't 'keep money. That's all right, Bell, there is always more at home. Who lets the air out of Toby Lamar's left front tire every day? How did Stabler get that shiner? Boy, is it a honey!! Who is it in San Antonio who so ,Per sistently corresponds with T/Sgt. Burnett? It seems that those -?1* store slips and memorandum receipts never check--might be a good idea for the "shop and office" force to work out a peaceful solution. Neither is ever willing to admit that it is at ''fault.'' The latest rumor circulating through Ordnance is: Due to the advancing cost of clay pigeons, the Ordnance Company has sent in a requisition for 12,000 Japs to be used for target practice at Tyndall Field, There is a great similarity between Japs and clay pigeons--both are yellow and crack very easily---that is all.--I.N. FINANCE It has been rumored that our detachment commander, Lt. Shofner, is the best politician on the post. It seems that the only way to keep T/Sgt. Underwood's spirits up is to arrange to have a letter delivered daily from Macon, Ga. What is the attraction? Pvt. Blazak seems to have some sort of an interest in Panama City, according to all the passes he seems to want. Explain yourself, John. Pfc. Carl Brandt visits James Laundry and Cleaners frequently. Is the reason Eleanor? Now, to revert to a serious vein. Pfc. Edward M. Morgan has left us for a short period to attend the Army Finance School at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Ind. We all wish Ed the best of luck.--c.B. QUARTERMASTER Yep, it surely looks as if spring is on the loose again. How do we know? Well, a sure sign that the cool weather is just about over is 11Biffy11 Ramey's new hair-do. Other more sure signs are the dull, stupid looks that come into our eyes when one of the lovely office wrens flutter by, leaving in their wake a cloud of exotic perfume as well as a collection of far away looks. Ah1 what is so rare, as a day in June. Then, if ever, come perfect days. Pvt. Paul vVheeler tells us of the gal he had out on a date the other evening who, after she had kissed him six or seven times, began getting sentimental. And then, we have the choice bit of dirt about Corp. Bob G. Stiles who was overheard to remark that his gal would make a swell soldier mainly because she bears everything without any complaining. The four fellows who are trying to effect a transfer to the parachute battalion are: Pvts. Lively, Angelier, Adams, and Kirby. Well, all we can say is that they are nice fellows, and we hope we never hear of them being picked up with a vacumn cleaner. Here the old adage 11If at first you don't succeed, try try again," DOES NOT APPLY. Did you know that the quartermaster has over 200 functions? If you don't believe it look it up in your manual. The mission of the Quartermaster Corps is to assure the successful operation of the Army of the United States. Well that will be all for this time. Will see you next week, and meanwhile "Keep 'Em Lying."--R.G.

1 I uch to .. Chaplain's surprise, a lVlsoldier asked him if he could spare a few minute$ in which to talk over a personal problem. The surprisewa:s not that the soldier had a problem. All men everywhere have problerris-:-problems that to them :A are big but which seem small to others. Too, all men at one time or an other feel the urge to talk over a problem with someone whom they can trust, and with someone whom they feel will not make ligh t of their particular problem. The surprise was not that this soldier sought out the Chaplain. This is what the Chaplain is for. The sur prise was that the soldier even entertained the thought that the Chaplain would not have time to talk with him. Your Chaplain thought that all of you understood that you were free to discuss anything with h im. Both Chaplain McClelland and myself are vitally interested in you We want to be o f help t o you and we stand ready at all times to be of service.

Spetts Athletics and other recreational activities are now being enjoyed by the majority of the men stationed at Tyndall Field. Under the supervision of Lt. Thompson, athletic and recreation officer, an assistant has been appointed for each squadron to activate interest in their organizations for all kinds of athletics and recreation that are available. At present, the following equipment is available for archery sets, volleyball and basketball. Shuffle boards are now being constructed on porch floors in several of the buildings. Work on a softball diamond is underway in the rear of Building 310 and will be ready for use in a few days. Basketball practice is going fulltilt. Squadron teams are practicing two nights a week and on Saturdays at the Bay County high school gym in Panama City. If our organization does not have a team, contact Lt. Thompson and arrangements will be made for your men to practice. Transportation will be furnished on these occasions. The following assistant athletic directors have been named to represent their squadrons, and if you are interested in any form of athletics, see your representative: Hq. & Hq. Pvt. Dan Levinson 66th Mat. Pvt. L. R. Brewer 69th A.B. -s/sgt. Patrick O'Neil 343rd SS Corp. Donald Uurphy 344th ss Corp. Clyde Higason 348th ss Sgt. Joseph Sadler 349th ss Corp.

It is equipped with three ping-pong tables, American and Chinese checkers and dominos. Writing tables with paper, pen and ink are available and the following publica-tions: Life, Collier's, Army & Navy Journal, Army & Navy Register, American Magazine, Liberty, Popular Mechanics, Saturday Evening Post, Radio Craft, Readers' Digest, Look, Adventure, Sports Afield, Western Story, Field & Stream. You can drop by at anytime to read the following daily papers: Montgomery Ad,ertiser, Pensacola Journal, Panama City NewsHerald. New York Times and Cleveland News.--Major w. F. Shipman. .U"a" Caqe A great many soldiers have been attending basketball games at Bay County high school and for your convenience, the following schedule of future cage tilts is given: February 6th -Chipley February lOth Malone February 16th -Pensacola February 20th -Marianna February 24th St. Joe I don't suppose that there will be half as many stamps sold at the PO now that Miss Alma Dykes has left to take another position at the St. Andrews 4IJ branch. We all wish her the best of luck. There is quite a humorous touch to the way some of the fellows have their mail addressed. A few of the many ways that Tyndall Field has been spelled are: Lyndall, Syndall, Kendall, Tindall, Tendell, and Eyndall. Some are addressed to the street that the barracks are on, some to the "34855th School Squadron." One of the recruits has his mail addressed as "Temporary Buck Private." May we make the suggestion that every man make sure to tell his girl and other correspondents his correct address. It will be a big help to us in the post office and your mail will reach you more quickly. Some of the fellows evidently like Florida sand for they're sending it back home to friends.
