l AT HEADQUARTERS AND VV ith all due respects to Don "Ask ''I' me anything" Schultz, Fred "Great Day" Foster has taken over the Information desk at Post 'Headquarters and, along with Cecil "You name it, I've got it" Barr, you can bet that information is now being dispensed as it has been dispensed before. Tuesday, February 17, will not be forgotten too soon in this squadron. For on that day at about 1:30 P.M., with unprecedented suddenness, the announcement came from the orderly room that the entire squadron would be restricted for a period of three days! Even after the two match sticks were picked up off the floor, the only comment lst Sgt. Howell make was "You boys forced me to do it." The other sgts. in Sgt. Frank T. High's room wishes he'd stop talking to them in THEIR sleepi Don't worry Frank, Eddie Cantor wants to have a boy, tooi we never did get around to giving proper credit to all of the folks who made our recent squadron party the success it was orchids to Mrs. Thelma Martin, Chairman of the Panama City Social Recreation Committee, who rounded up all of those pert young ladies a bow to McClelland for his hand in the liquid refreshment and for the use of his record player and last but not least a generous vote of thanks to 1st Sgt. Howell and his arrangement committee which included S/Sgt.Boone, Cpl. Bar rios, and Pvt. Cecil Barr. The entire squadron, from Capt. Fox down, ,agree that it was a grand bit of work. 66TH MATERIEL Almost all of the men are now non-commissioned officers. And Gossett is almost married Sgt. Hodges had one of his sgts. on K.

The boys are sewing on their newly acquired chevrons Congratulations fellows, including a certain s/sgt. and T/Sgt. who are still "sweating." Guess Vfho? JBY CVH. Our newlywed sergeant, Don L. Murphy, has just acquired the name of Seabiscuit there's nothing slow about .the way Don gets off with that four o'clo.ck whistle! Remember Bay Harbor, Murphy? Can anyone guess whose Valentine the girl that works beside the Ritz Theatre is? The 343rd went down for the first time last M onday night could it be because the "little woman" kept our basketball coach at home? All the men in the organization appreciate the cooperation of its com manding officer and Lt. Corr for their aid in getting the day room off to its flying start. Now we can look forward to dances and other forms of entertainment, what about it, Day Roo m Committee? --R.J.B. 344TH SCHOOL it happened at lastt an explosion in our outfit in the form of ratings t There are now a lot of 11 stl' ipe happy" boys running around looking for some poor private to pick on, poor guys! You fellows that didn't make it this time, don't give up, but get in there and fight! You know good, so get busy and convince the first sergeant. Six of our men left for specialist's schools, good luck fellows! We also have several fellows that went out to the clerical school in Colorado. That country out there is mighty cold for some of these "rebels." How about it, Blackie? But g ood going Joe and Roy. Warning to all new men in the out fit! There are some very nice girls here in Panama City, BUT several of our men have middle aisled down here in the last few months, in fact, five, so watch out! The BUG might get you. There's a certain Corporal L. who seems to have fallen for a Greyhound Bus rider, (female). What's she like, Leggett? Say, Sgt. R.W. Austin, what's this I hear about a certain Lorraine, in South Bend, Ind. How do you stand, anyhow? and Sgt. Jackson, why so happy after that letter last Tuesday? She must have been nice, how about it, talk more? -A.J.C. 348TH SCHOOL SQUADRON ;BANG, BANG, that funny man, details everything in the 348th. He said, quote 110ne of you privates take eight corporals over to M/Sgt. Postlewaite for a detail" .. Welcome back to Sgt. Field--and we notice no reduction in "quantity" has resulted in his change of diet The "take off11 boy of last week's column took us seriously. He's really going out for it with all he's got! Don't we guard-happy rooks wish that it would quit raining? .. Wno's sweating out payday besides you, you and you--well, all right, all of ust? what guy has that gal at the Dixie Sherman walking around with nickelodian lights in her eyes? Who borrowed Ledbetter's new pair of shoes forK. P. duty, Terry? What gang made a mad dash for the supply room? OBJECT: Stripes. RESULT: A Shortage!


Don't you think that our dirt walks are the cutest things? Vifho put that green thumbtack on the bulletin board? Calloway is back runnin' instead of gunnin' ... casey passed out the cigars ... And, who is out looking for a pair of rimless glasses on a certain young lady? watch out, one of you might be married! --H.M. 349TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Jlwenty of the boys in the 349th were entertained at a Valentine party by the girls of the Methodist Church in St. Andrews Torn hearts were mended, and, as a result, there was at least one reconciliation .. ask Catozza. Our basketball team won its first game of the tournament by defeating the 343rd School Squadron The new time schedule will no doubt give us more time for recreation in the evening something we all enjoy And now that the gunnery school is open, many of the boys are hitting their stride, including Corporai Owings and Private Stubbs. A vote of thanks to Private Gershman, to whose ingenuity we owe the attractive sign that designates the number of our squadron Private Dufrane has decided to challenge Pvt. Barnes for the title of being Glamour Boy No. l He's just purchased a brand new brass whistle. Pfc. Paulin has left for school to become an Instrument Specialist. And here's wishing luck to Pfc. MacLaren in his efforts to pass the Cadet Exam. --H.H.B. 350TH SCHOOL SQUADRON two fellows of this outfit had the Log Cabin's radio advertisement Here's hoping that the manager won't lose more than twQ customers by the change Ragland's,folks visited him this week-end came down from North Birmingham walker 1 s new theme song is, "Wish I Was Single Again!" And Pharo sings, "It Wont Be Long Now" Dropped in at Headquarters Monday night and what do you know the personnel section was working overtime, wonder why? Saw Galloway with three up and one down, Sunday a previous, weren't you, Galloway? Murray is still singing about "This Love of Mine." What is H.c.

Q Hello, T/Sgts. Van Slyck and Barker, you'll be a big help to us out there on the line. Some of the "go getters" of the squadron have contracted for a fixed price for sewing on stripes seems that they've started a union just look at the prices! Glad to hear that we've got a g ood basketball terun, this outfit beat the 446th the other night. Well, how do you "yam danckies11 like this beautiful Florida sunshine? --J.D.T. L 446TH SCHOOL SQUADRON ife in the raw: Pvt. Van Weelden, late of New York, is now a member of this squadron. Before his enlistment in the Air Corps, he spent some of the most enjoyable years of his life in the very interesting profession of Funeral Director and Embalmer. Corporal Joseph H. Lassiter, the N. Carolina Playboy is now plying his old trade here in the squadron. He's a roug h man and really a cut up at heart. He proved it last Friday night by some of the haircuts he gave to a few of the boys. Life is all quiet on the western front now for Cor uoral Meehan. His one and only joined him last week The Man Who Came to Tyndall Field is


at last free to visit town once again. What say, Private Levy, let's it last. LOST: A toupee. If found, please return to Corp. J. H. Lassiter, the owner. A liberal reward is promised. FOUND: One pair of false teeth. Owner must present positive means of identification. 447TH SCHOOL SQUADRON (Jongratulations to our Commanding Officer, Samuel E. Williams, on his promotion from First Lieutenant to Captain. The squadron chalked up another win on the courts by defeating the 348th in a hotly-contested basketball 21-16. Nice going, fellows. We wish to welcome M/Sgt. Brown and T/Sgts. iVhittier and Davis, who were transferred to our outfit a few days ago. Lots of luck to Sgt. Wright, Cpl. Rabick and Pvts. Khachigan, Goodheart, Salak and Reynolds, who left for Chanute. Live and learn Pvt. R. Harrison has been trying to take out the trans-. mission from his 133 Chevvie for over a month without success. Perhaps if he would drop the rear end, it would be much easier. Orchids to Private Williard Jordan, who recently got up enough nerve to trek down the middle aisle and utter the sacred vow, "I do." And we're all only too those messy mess kits in our footlockers. Hurray happy to put the bottom of for a trayl 448TH SCHOOL SQUADRON 1lhe total height of our Commanding Officer and the Adjutant is only a bit more than ten feet, but they couldn't rate higher with the men of this outfit. All the boys in the squadron join in offering sympathy to Pvt. Gillespie whose father died last week. T/Sgts. Steve T. Umnisk i and Billy s. Powers have joined this outfit. Welcome, men, and we feel sure you are going to be an a-sset to the squadron. Pfc. Oliver, the dashing red-head, enjoyed a evening with his lady love in dreamland last week. From Taps until the c. Q.'s whistle, he talked in his sleep of his darling Betty and the pretty blond hair. The boys in his room lost a full night's sleep but thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It is rumored that Easter Tide will bring wedding bells for a bunch of the fellows, if Captain Hunter gives the 0. K T/Sgt. Peterson and his bowling team took another three games Tuesday night to keep a clean slate. Cpl. Weis and his girl were seen standing on a street corner last Saturday night presumably waitQng for a street The supply sergeant swears that he will hang the next man who stops him on the street and asks him when the laundry will be in Pvt. Whaley wields a wicked razor in his latrine barber shop. Pfc. Graham splurged Saturday night with a nut sundae and a coke. --L.H.T.


SIGNAL SERVICE COMPANY heavy rain of last Sunday was very popular with the wire lineman in this outfit. "Hank" Brozanski looked like a survivor from a ship wreck when he checked in Sunday night after spen ding all day in the rain "shooting" trouble. However, he hails from New Jersey and from what I've seen of the weather up there, he should be plenty familiar with rain and fog. Newton, Asaro and Corporal Stansberry have been patching up telephone lines all week. They've been taping, splicing, cursing and stringing wires from morning til night and deserve a lot of credit for the work they are doing on the temporary system now in W e are operating a Western Union Of fice in the Signal Building. (This is not intended as a commercial announcement, but we will take no offense if you pay us a visit and wire that girl or the folks back home. We're located on the north side of Post Headquarters building.) W e did a land office business onSt. Valentine's Day. "Slim" Foster and I were feeling so sentimental after watching all those touching wires come in on the tape, that we were going to send our First Sergeant Boylston a card asking him to be our Valentine, and t o spare us from detail for all time. --W.M.H. FINANCE T o start with, we're proud to announce that to date we are still holding our own at the top of the Tyndall Field bowling league. We're in there pitching for strikes every match, so competition look out. (Editor's we'll look out). Our "boss," Sgt. Underwood, seems to have an interest in the Bell Telephone Company in Panama City. Does one of the operators have his "number"? It seems that one of the most popular men in the Detachment is Private Frank Clooney. Perhaps it's because he is the only man in the outfit who can be fairly conservative and is always ready to help out a buddy who needs money. Costigan and Anderson are his shadows. --c.G.B. MEDICAL DETACHMENT announcement of ratings last week got confused; apparently we were not as "in the know" as we thought. So late but hearty con grats to Sgt. Cherney and Pfc. Dawson And welcome to our newest Officer, Lt. Fogel, who came here from Camp Blanding, Florida. Well, Groover finally made the grade with "52211 and now we have lost another source for news Lots of luck to the Mr. and Mrs Is it true that Sgt. Cherney has given up smoking because of the fear that he will put the wrong end in his mouth and run up his temperature? To the men who came in from Eglin last week--we're all glad to see you. It was certainly a long wait--fact is, we'd about decided you'd forgotten your proper station And remember, fellows, those yellow fever shots hurt us just as much as they do you. -R.L.M CHEMICAL WARFARE scribe doesn't have any rumors this week. It seems that Lt. Lynn, proprietor of our local rooming and boarding house, the 66th Materiel Sq uadron, has.been putting on his glasses while inspecting our room and consequently, has seen a bit too much dirt scattered here and there. The net result is that things have been rather "confined" this week. Panama City is fast becoming a pleasant memory in our minds. We've heard from some of the fellows that Lt. Corr's Sunday afternoon date is in the market for some "No-Doze'' pills to slip the g ood Lieutenant to keep him from cat-napping. --J.H.L.


QUARTERMASTER I>vt. Welche's jalopy can be put to music uopus in All Fla.t" Best of luck to the fellows from our Detachment who were sent to Holla.bird, Md., to take a. specialist course in the whys and wherefores of our Army trucks and jeeps Say, did you see that bomb shell that Sgt. McCoy was convoying down the main drag the other day? It was the real McCoy Our vote for the original Good Humor man---none other than (Boss) Lt. John H. Yates Then we overheard a couple of 1'1 girls in our office chirping about how much Captain Alcott resembles Ronald Coleman Hurricane Henderson, the local lover, sure is in demand in town--and we do mean in demand What ever became of our turtle, Myrtle Did you Hitler and the hear of the young 'un that Pvt. Ten Eyck dates nightly? Two girls of the same age would equal twenty-one. Ehrhardt can sleep for 30 hours with out waking, so help me What say we get up a softball team? And is it true that Johnny Sopher runs around with a woman wrestler? And that Tom Baldridge's brother has just arrived in the States after a crash in the Brazilian jungles while ferrying planes? rt seems that our bowling team is out for blood and any games available! So lookout, Keglers A few of the cooks have gone off to school to learn how to cook Harold Thompson, our postoffice, "carrying on" and holding hands with none other than a minister's daughter And did you see that pair of yellow drawers on one of the boys? Devil Hitler called the Devil on the telephone one day. The girl at Central listened to all they had to say. "Hello," she hears Hitler say, "Is old man Satan home? Just tell him it's Hitler the Dictator who wants him on the phone. The Devil said, "Howdy," and Hitler said, "How are you? I'm running a Hell here on earth, so tell me what to do. "What can I do?" the Devil said, "Dear old pal of mine, It seems you don't need any help, you are doing mighty fine." "Yes, I was doing mighty fine until a little while ago, When a man named Uncle Sam wired me to go slow.u ''He said to me, 'Dear Hitler, we don't want t o be unkind, But you have raised enough so you had better change your ml.nd. I thought the Lend Lease Bill was bluff, and they would never get it through, But he soon put me on the spot when he showed me what he'd do.

. Under the capable guidance of Major Shipman and Lt. L. R Thompson athletic activities are shaping up in grand style. Basketball and volleyball c ourts and baseball diamonds have set up at various spots around the Post. A.ll squadrons have been issued equipment to take care of almost any sport in which the boys wish to participate. And to make sure that every soldier takes advantage of the facilities offered, a half day during the training week has been set aside for athletics. As the sporting spotligh t swings around the field, basketball seems to be flashing out in front. Plenty of top-notch forwards and guards have been discovered in all the squadrons. Due to such enthusiastic response from the boys, a round robin tournament has been organized among the outfits. Games are played in the Panama City gym on Monday and Wednesday nights and Saturday afternoons. Spectators are more than welcome. With the approach of warmer weather, softball and volleyball will soon have their share of the enthusiasts. Each squadron should be able to field an expert aggregation of pat-ball artists as well as a slugging ''tensome" in softball. Bowling, the fastest-growing sport in America, is finding no trouble in being represented by the boys at Tyndall Field. A league was formed several weeks ago and each Tuesday and 'fhursday night you' 11 find the competition growing hotter and hotter. As soon as most of the day rooms have been equipped with ping-pong tables, intra-squadron contests will be run off to decide squadron champs, who will in turn compete with the padd,le aces of the other outfits for the Tyndall Field title.

/iiiJf tJF Til IAif't'sf fut /"MtLGATE N -f "Blues in the Night" didn't quite make the No. one position of the Hit Parade last Saturday as we predicted, but its failure to do so serves as a stirring tribute to the song that still rates tops in the hearts of all of America-"The White Cliffs of Dover." While passing out the posies, it's about time we mentioned that popular reveille program that each A M brightens those darkest hours before dawn. You know which one we're talking about: Henry Duprez and his gang of "Dawn Bus ters" over WWL, New Orleans. Many a chill caused by that whistle-tooting c. Q. has been thawed out by the warm notes of Sally O'Dare's songs. Freddy Martin takes over the CBS network at 9:00 PM on Mondays in place of Orson Welles, who leaves for a "Good Neighqor" tour of the other Americas. For a few extra chuckles and some tips of "wolf" technique, we suggest you tune in on Charley McCarthy tomorrow night. Two irresistable forces will meet when Hedy Lamarr's charm parries with Charley's amorous advances.
