A Chat with the Chaplain We are approaching the time of the year wherein we stop to remember the "Risen Christ." All the world seems to join us. It is Easter. Christ is risen. Yes, He died. He was dead when they placed His body in the grave. But, the grave could not hold Hint. Out of the grave He came on Easter morn. We sing and shout that He is risen. Goodt But, what of the days before Easter? Before Easter, the Christ took stock of Himself. Those were dark days for Him. Should not we take stock of ourselves before Easter, as did Christ? Those were sad days for the Christ. Days full of disappointment and sorrow. Friends turned their backs upon Him and walked with Him no more. His enemies became strong against Him. Surely, they were dark days. But, out of the darkness came glorious Easter Morn. Victory is always sweeter after the struggle. Here, in America, we have a custom. A beautiful custom. We call it Lent. It consists of e period of time prior to Easter wherein we stop our worldly living, and take time to think of the Christ, and the better things of Life. We think of what He has done for us. We take stock of ourselves. To help us appreciate Easter more, we observe this period or' self-denial and meditation. It is Lent now. Is it too much to ask? Too much after all the Christ has done for us? Shall we not bene efit by thinking of the Christ these next few days! Thinking and trying to honest-ly examine ourself' and then ask God to help us rid ourself of some sin, some bad habit. If we do, will we not appreciate Easter more? --Chaplain Wilson. Rabbi Wolf will be at the Panama City Armory Monday night at 8 o'clock to conduct a service for Tyndall Field men and Panama City friends of the Jewish faith. uso OPENS 'SOON' Keep hoping, fellows.

HEADQUARTERS AND HEADQUARTERS l>ledging him their cooperation, the boys in the squadron congratulate former Staff Sergea.."lt Don J. Asbury on his recent appointment as Acting First Sergeant. The week was highlighted by a "Pr9motion Party on Monday night. Cpl. R. s. Smith was in charge of arrangements and refreshments. Cliques were broken up and bosom pals were separated as the new room assignments were carried out last Friday. Despite the temporary inconveniences that might arise under this new set-up, you've got to admit that it has resulted in cleaner barracks and wider acquaintances. Within the last three weeks, twenty one men of the squadron have been sent off to school. The list includes: Sergeants J. Waller, D. Hinshaw and B. Northrup; Corporal H. Barnes; Privates L. Manser, W.D. Wiley, H. D. Wiley, I. D. Levinson, c. Vickers, R. Timanus, A. Janucevic, E. Roach, S. Upchurch, V. Edwards. J. F. Close, C .M. Cochran, R.R. Slatko, B. R. Anderson, \V.J. Anders, H.

And speaking of "Mrs."S", we are glad to see Sgt. Flowers and his one and only back with us again. Sergeant Williams ,announces that he is short on "Bull Durham" already, and the month just starting toot All of the boys in the squadron appreciate tha.t thoughtful "brother'' of Sergeant Brewster who sends him candy. The basketball team is doing okay so far They should increase their .500 percentage, though, now that Sergeant Rousseau and Corp oral Monroe are back. Relax, Sgt. Gossett, you don't have to give 1st Sgt. Hodges a "snow job" anymore you have your "staff" stripe. The married men in the squadron have all been very cordial abou t inviting other members of the outfit to dine with them and so far no one has forgotten to bring along a chicken or duck. For the first time since its formation, the squadron has reached its full strength now we can settle down and get to know each other. Turn in your news to S/Sgt. E dward s at Post Headquarters. --A.R.E. 69TH AIR BASE Sergeant O'Neil reports that the "Fighting 69th" boys are doing exceptionally well on the basketball courts. Our team has only played in two games thus far, but they've won both of them. The men have also been hiking a bit this week. Lt. Russo, who has been in charge, says that most of the men would rather be on the range Private Gerald w. Bishop announced his plunge into matrimony last week Good luck to the newlyweds from all the boys! Corporal Harry W. Beidel was 11 going steady" with a Bay Harbor lass until one of his "friends" stepped in and took the miss to the movies while Harry was back at the Field pulling "patrol.'' Harry says he's lost a friend! 343RD SCHOOL SQUADRON lost two good men to the Cadet Training School this week, Sergeant Billie Van Pepering and Corporal James A. Thomps on. Our l oss is the Cadet's gain. On the basketball front the 343rd came through with flying colors again. The boys won a close one from the 348th


School Squadron; the score was 28-26. It was a nip and tuck affair with the margin of victory being scored in the last minute of play! England has nothing on the 343rd. We have a "Churchill11 too. He is none other than Paul Churchill, who just arrived from Chanute Field. Also returning from school this week was Sgt. Earl Buchwald. The Sergeant has just finished a course of instruction in Power Turrets at the Bendix School. Some sort of an endurance prize is rated by Private W.A. McLeod. He had a 'phone call from his "heart throb" inN. c. the other night, and spoke to her for 48 minutes! --R.J.B. 344TH SCHOOL SQUADRON the boys finally received an opportunity to demonstrate their skill with a pistol. Among the good and bad scores, Corporal Geick stoodout as an expert with 13 hits out of a possible 10! Amazing marksmanship, to say the least. It seems Snodgrass has been kidding the recruits about guard duty. Whether or not the rookies will ever take a shot at their own shadow in the moonlight as he once did, remains to be seen1 Perhaps the squadron basketball team could make a better showing if some of the boys who are old hands at the game would only condescend to offer their skill in future games. Do we have to mention names, Sgt. Austin and Private Stevens? --A.J.C. 349TH SCHOOL S QUADRON 13est wishes to Master Sergeant Harrelson on his recent promotion to that rank. Our fast-breaking and sharp-shooting basketball team scored its third straight triumph by defeating the 446th School Squadron. The score was 33-18. Pfc. Dufrane was the top man in the points-scored column, accounting for a total of 25 points. We want to say "hello and welcome" to Tech Sergeant Callender who very recently joined the organization. Private Crawford left on Sunday for Milan, Michigan, he had been granted an emergency furlough Private Alphin is learning the trials and tribu 1 ations connected with a typewriter as he begins work behind a machine at the Personnel Office. Among the new tstripe" happy boys are: Acosta, Alderate, Balsam, Barrick, Barnes, Beason, Belford, Blossom, Brewer, Camp, Chope, Dufrane, Funkhauser, Greenwald, Haddock, Hancock, Houston, Huinker, Jernigan, Kennedy, Kress, Lagrone, Lucas, Moore, Morin, Saunders, Stubbs, Williams, R.D. Young, J. Young and Barkdull. Sew 'em on men! --ll.H.B. 446TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Mo"uday morning's mail call saw a new man handing out those "Sugar Reports." Enter, Private Manson, exit Corporal Kendall. A hearty welcome to Staff Sergeant Stanley N. Piechocki who us a fter a period of Detached Service at South Bend, Indiana Seven more members of our squadron have enrolled as students in the Gunnery School That brings the total of men from our outfit in the school up to thirteen. Corporal Rowley seems to be entering his second childhood. He is the proud owner of a cut-out doll book! And Corporal Glass is better known as "The Boy with the Wistful Eyes." THINGS WE'D LIKE TO SEE: Our basketball team win a game Private Berry not finding some new piece of nonsense to add to his rapidly growing collection Any member of the squadron with money left on or about the 25th of the monthl Getting back to basketball, how about some of you former cage stars coming out for our next game? --M .M.K.


lf) 448TH SCHOOL SQUADRON H. N. Haar threw together a makeshift bowling team to represent this squadron last Thursday night. He finally got five men that wanted to bowl after he explained that they did not have to be experts. Imagin e his surprise when one of the b oys that "came along" sported a ring which was given to him for bowling a perfect game in a national tournament! The makeshift team took three in a row! Deepest sympathy to J. c Miller, whose father passed away a t S t Petersburg, Florida, last week A group of Panama City's fairest y o ung ladies entertained the b oys o f this squadron Thursday night and every one had a swell time. Why don't we do this more often? Congratulations to Tech. Sergeant Galling who added the second r ocker stri?e on the 1st of March. T/Sgt. Walter E. Peterson is in the market for a good bicycle that will fit long legs. He figures that he has walked some 344 miles in two months just travelling from the squadron to the line! DETACHMENT I t has finally become a reality!. On M onday, all Medical men moved from the temporary quarters on Sewannee Road to their permanent quarters in the new Hospital Area. "Home" at last! It's a blessing to Sergeant Mathews that the hospital was activated so soon. He wont have to pass the Q.M. Barracks anymore. It seems that o n one occasion the Q.M. Barracks and the Medical Barracks looked identically the same to the sergeant! Now that Sgt. Barnhart has his car, date promotions to be easy Lots of l uck to Corporal Marsh who may soon be entering the Med. Administrative O f ficer School. Best the B ottoms up for the Jap Navy! --A. K. T FINANCE he entire squadron welcomes 2nd Lt. Louis McKnig h t who joins us as Assistant Finance Officer. Previous to his arrival at Tyndall Field, Lt. McKnight was stationed at Barksdale Field, La. He was a Master Sergeant in the finance depart ment before being ordered to active d u t y as a 2nd Lt., Finance Reserve. Our heartiest congratulations to 'I'echni cians Johnny E. Farr and Edward M. Morgan. Both of these boys were pro moted to rank of Staff S/Sgt. Morgan is away on D. S. Rumor has it that wedding bells may soon ring for s/sgt. Farr, with T/Sgt. Underwo od a l so giving thought to the same matter. The l atest bowling results show that we still lead the league. There' s no reas on why we shouldn't keep that lead right o n down to the last roatch1 --CGB l!T QUARTERMASTER lYhile our s tar reporter, Ray Gross, is ailing with an infected leg, the undersigned will risk his life with a few casual c omments The bowling team is still in the groove, or perhaps our opponen t s a r e just in a rut1 Either way, the b oy s are doing a swell job!

SIGNAL SERVICE COMPANY First Sergeant, Forest L. B oylston, has left for the Officer Candidate School at Fort Monmouth, N. J. We're going to miss him very much. He was a great first sergeant and a swell fellow. We all wish him the very best of luck. Five other men left us last week. Asaro, Giannini, Stelling and Dorazio were transferred to Napier Field. The boys had a farewell party for Sergeant Boylston Saturday night and it was a howling success. I wasn't able to attend, but if the racket the fellows made when they returne d was any indication of the spirit of the party, I missed a good one! "Hank" Brozanski came back in a playful m ood, but couldn't find a playmate. He threw a comforter in the general direction of my bunk and went off disgusted wi t h the lack of spirit shovm by his 11pals.11 Sergeant Kolt is our new Acting 1st Sergeant. He has just recently joined us and appears to be quite capable of handling the job. Incidentally, Sgt. Kolt was associated with the Gulf Oil Company in South America previous to his induction into the Army. He is a whiz at Spanish, and is going to conduct a class for the Officers. Can you picture some of our Officers being asked to stay after school for not studying their lessons'? May we suggest K.P. for the ones that fail to keep up their averages'? We have a weather man working in the Signal Office in the person of Sgt. Sam Gacessa. It is n o longer a secret that this fellow is directly responsible for all of the bad weathert He claims that he is powerless to cope with the situation because of the lack of proper equipment. However, Sgt. Gacessa does promise summer on or before July Fourth, this year. That i n itself is quite a concessio n for a We ather Forecaster to make! Rain is o.k. but this is ridiculoust --W.M.H. 350TH SCHOOL SQUADRON championship form, the 350th basketball quintet chalked up a well earned victory over the 447th cagers. The score was 29-23 and the win marks the first time that the 447th has been defeated in the inter-squadron competition. Nice going, ment We welcome Sergeant Lance M orrison back to the squadron. He has been taking a specialist course in turrets at South Bend, Indiana. It was noticed that Bruner and Pal mer were out walking and riding ly, but is was also noticed that they were in good hands--good and YOUNG hands, it might be added Bruner is supposedly ''sweating out" a lovely lass in Lynn Haven What does Sgt. Anderson have on his mind besides a certain brunette and Officers Candi date School? Suarez gave away a diamon d the other night and has a second one on hand. The teething ring is yet to be bough t however That makes three staffs down and only Galloway to go Dillard is going steady with a local girl Henderson's one and only was down last weekend from Charleston. In memory of the mess kits we say "May We Never Meet Again.11 --J.D.T. w. CHE:MI CAL WARFARE e all heave a sigh of relief as the Sims' family again makes its way back up to the Northland. Honestly, it w a s lonely around the Detachment without Sims with us. A flash just came in that Lescher's proud (?) parents are arriving on Wednesday His heartbeat isn 1 t coming with them so we can expect to see him in a little earlier in the evenings. What is this about Hammond being off at school at present--at least that is what we have heard from some of female companions down in the City Vfuy not let us in on it, Jimmy? --J.H.L.

Better be er goin. --The Yardbird. ?H# dJHd ,f' I had twelve bottles of whiskey in my cellar, and my wife told me to empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink "or else." I said I would and proceeded with the unpleasant task. I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink, the exception of one glass which I drank. I extracted the cork from the second bottle and did likewise, with the exception of one glass which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the third bottle and emptied the good old booze down the sink, except a glass which I drank. I pulled the cork from the fourth sink, and poured the bottle down the glass, which I drank. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank poured the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink out of the cork down the bottle. I pulled the next cork out of sink down the bottle and drank the glass. Then I corked bottled the drink and drank the pour. one sink out the 11-ext glass my glass and the sink with of it, and and poured poured the the glass, When I had everything emptied I steadied the house with one hand, counted the bottles and corks and glasses with the other, which were twenty-nine. To make sure, I counted them again when they came by and I had seventy-four. And as the house came by, I counted them again, and finally had the hous.es. and bottles and corks and glasses counted, except one house and one bottle, which I drank. {JI/tJTEA sgt. is a man what didn't let small handycaps like and lack of soshability git him down. --The Yardbird. --''Author" Unknown. ignurance, low-mentallity,


f/Ait' P/191/E$ FI!YA#t'E Close observers of the bowling situation will notice that what 'last week looked like a runaway for the Finance Wizards, has now developed into a two and, possibly, three team scramble. With methodical precision, the Quar termaster keglers have been bowling over their opponents and the latest standings reveal that they are but one game behind the league leaders. The 344th pin men, who were tied for 2nd place with the QMC boys last week, were the victims of the Quartermaster team as they dropped three games and thereby fell out of the 2nd place tie into the 3rd slot. -flETT/Nu /IEI(#(JIIALEver hear of "Olson and Dufrane'!" No, they're not a comedy team, but whenever they put on their show called "Goals A Poppin'" on the basketball courts, they invariably bring joy to the men of the 349tht Privates First Class Harris Olson and William Dufrane have been the important cogs in the 349th's cage machine which has yet to be defeated in the Tyndall Field Basketball Tourney. This talented combination works on a "feed and shoot" basis. Olson, from a guard's position, passes the ball to Dufrane whose deadly accuracy with the leather sphere recently accounted for 24 points in one gamel However, both boys claim that their smoothe performances are only' possible because of the complete cooperation by the other men on the 349th quintet.

Twist of the Wrist-Radio listeners who had their dial turned to Elmer Davis' 10 P. M. news analysis lnst Monday evening had the privilege of being earwitnesses to a rare display of one of our mo3t vital possessions -freedom of thought and speech!
