The large turnout for last Tuesday's dance by the men from Tyndall Field and the youn g ladies from P anama City has led to the announcement that similar jive sessions will .be held each Tuesday evening until further notice. Confident that the men of the Field a ppreciate the facilities of the center Mr. Olive r and Mrs. Le e are anxiously trying to p l an a s chedule of events that will be of interest to as many men as possible.

-The place was a chapel which was in the process of being built. It was nearly completed. A stranger was watching. He watched three laborers for about two hours. Walking around the building, he stopped one laborer and asked him what he was doing. The man replied, "I'm working on this job." "Yes, I can see you are," the man went on, "but what are you doing, and why?" The laborer answered curtly, "I'm doing labor work. Why am I doing I have to live. I have to have money to buy food and shelter." A second man was approached and asked the same question. "I 'rr, helping to build a building," he answered "I'm earning good money and it will be a good building when we are finished." The third man was met and asked the same question. The stranger was surprised at the answer. "I 1m helping God build a house for Himself. A chapel wherein mankind, all creeds and colors, can come and worship God. Wherein all mankind can come and find peace and rest for his soul; wherein mankind can meet his God." He was happy in his work, and his work was a joy to him. What a difference in the viewpoints of these three men. All were working, doing the same thing, but all working for a different reason. The first two laborers considered work a necessary evil to be endured if they wanted to live. But the third man believed his work to be a privilege, a joy. He had the higher viewpoint. If you want to make your mark in the world -in your work -cultivate the higher viewpoint. consider it as such are happy in their work. griping. be someone worthwhile -and happy work is a privilege. Those who Others are always discontent and Building with God. What a viewpoint! What could be better? What is hie;her? God needs helpers in all walks of life. How about helping Him?--Chaplain Wilson. A THOU6HT FOR THE (Editor's note: This is the second of a weekly series.) Of the traits most desired in a good soldier, LOYALTY is paramount. Guns, ships, and planes are necessary items of equipment, but they have never, and shall never win a war. Wars are won and Nations are built, homes are made and communities organized with Loyalty--the quality that binds one man to another. A soldier's loyalty to his superior should be absolutely unfettered and bound only by the rules of honesty. Tenacity of purpose is Loyalty put to test, and no one can gainsay that the historical background upon which we depend to guide us in these times is not builded upon Hon esty, Loyalty and Tenacity. If you are loyal to your fellows and your Country you are worthy of the uniform you wear. If you are not, your name is not publishable. ROAD SURFACING B 'EGINS Welcome news for the men of Tyndall Field is the announcement that all the streets here will be paved by the end of April, providing there is not an unusually large amount of rainy weath er between now and that date. Captain w. B. Strandberg, Chief Resident Engineer in charge of construction, stated that work would proceed continuously until the paving is completed. A prime of tar has already been laid on Sewanee Hoad, and Louisiana Avenue has been graded several times in preparation for paving;, but rain has interrupted the work each time. No appropriation has yet been made for the construction of sidewalks and walk-ways. Captain Strandberg declared on Wednesday that absolutely no vehicles would be permitted on the roads which have been blocked off for paving, and guards will enforce the prohibition to prevent possible damage.
Master Sergeant Liddon One of the most v a l u a ble and widely known noncommissione d officers at Tyndall Field is genial Master Serg e an t Harvey Liddon, Chief technical inspector here. Perhaps the most outstanding trait of the inspector is his rare knack for handling men and the ease with which he brings out the best in those who work for him. There is something about the sergeant that makes his men proud to be in his department and to have a _part in his work. His subordinates perform their ,duties without constant supervlSlOn, and WOrk all the more hard when he is absent. He has an unusual flair for story tel.ling and it is a. rare treat to gather around in spare moments and hear some of his "tall" ones. His twentytwo years of experience in the Army have provided him with ample material for his collection of yarns. Sergeant Liddon's job is one of the most important on the field, being that of making the final check on all planes and seeing that they are kept in top condition. He is an expert on airplane engines and air. craft maintenance, and in recognition of his ability he was recently commis sioned in the Army Reserve. He requested, however, that he not be called to active duty at this time. Favorite pastimes of the sergeant are quail hunting and fishing for trout and bass. Lt. Colonel Moore Undoubtedly, the most tedious job in the service i s that of the Quartermaster, whose r esponsibility it is to see that the Army is well supplie d and properly eq1,1ipped, and that these supplies and equipmen t are used in a.n authorized manne r At Tyndall Field, thi s great task rests u p on the s houldersof Lieutenant I Colonel Clii;ford J. Moore, whose most conspicuous, traits of character are frankness ; i n d ustriousness, and meticulous honesty--traits which are absol utely necessary for the making of a successful Quar termaster. Col. Moore, a native of Tennessee and a graduate of Union is a hard worker and a quick thinker. He has an astounding memory, even for small details, and he seldom has to look up information. The Tynd all QMa.rtermaster has a wide reputation for a bility to get, things done for the Army with the least possible expense. The story is often repeated of how he, while construction quartermaster at Maxwell Field, was responsible for the building of the swimmin g pool there for a comparatively trifHng sum of money. E:very officer and enlisted man on the post, including the then post coiniJU:i.nder, Major Walter R. Weaver, contributed a day's labor on the pool. Col. Moore's prir 1cipal hobbies are construction work and bowling; but he also enjoys fishing and hunting.

It seems as though Major Heilick can't on his own two d w feet On 11\iednesday evening around 8:00 -1 ) M., Lt. Hatcher called a certain Be
T HEADQUARTERS AND E}EADQUARTERS op honors for the week go to Tech Sergeant Seth P. Wood. Seth broke into the limelight when he was notified on Sunday morning of his acceptance as a candidate for the Quartermaster Of ficer Training School. Also in line for congratulations is "Uncle'' Harry C. Boone, who was elevated to the "Tech ranks. No one should complain about the lack of "soup" after the weather we've been having this past week The boys in the outfit have been t aking full advantage of the new USO building. Our squadron was w ell represented at that dance last Tuesday night. I ncidentally, we've been long overdue in mentioning the fact that our new s quadron clerk, Vernon Burdeshaw, has been doing a great job in the orderly room. --W.B. 66TH MATERIEL 0 rchids to Flowers on his appointment to the position of Assistant Sgt. Major of the Student Detachment. This reporter was quite lonesome in P.c. over the weekend all the men in the outfit were restricted to the Post for not "tidying up" properly for the Sat urday inspection. Seeing sergeants around Tyndall Field: Sergeant::. rHewtn, C2uch, Flowers, Hodges, Steger, liousseau and a few more, making up grocery lists for the new commissary Easy on the budget, men. Congratulations to Sergeant Todd on his recent acquisition of the second rocker stripe. Hope you get the final one soon, Todd but don't you think it's time to get someone to help you spend all of that m oney? The basketball team has been making a better showing in its last few so here's hoping that they keep up the good work. Welcome back to the squad ron, Sgt. Wilson. --A.R.E. 343RD SCHOOL squadron extends a most hearty welcome to our new Engineering Offirer, Lt. Howard Vfuitehurst. The lieutenant hails from Mobile, Alabama, where he made quite a name for himself as a basketball player on the Murphy High School quintet. Our newly-acquired pool table in the day room is operating on a full schedule. It looks like we'll have to get it water-cooled if some of the ''sharks" keep burning up the table. Between furloughs and Napier Field, it seem s as if the squadron is deserted On Monany night we lost another close basketball game, this time to the 69lst Ordnance. That makes the third straight game that we've dropped by one pointl It will probably be wedding bells for Sgt. New and Corporal White around Easter. --R.S.B. 349TH SCHOOL SQUADRON I f you see s orne of the boys with a big smile, look again and you will no doubt see a furlough paper. Two of our men have just returned from D.S. -Pvt. Haag from Lowery and Pvt. Bennet from Scott Field. Welcome back, fellows. Also, we extend a warm "hello" to our new Flying Officer, 2nd Lt. Raymond E Taylor. That was no earthquake in one of the rooms the other night--it was only Sn ead's new recording of Glenn Miller's "Keep 'Em Flying." Sergeant Brown is sweating out two things now--his "Staff" and June 11. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery to T/Sgt. "Slats" DeSimone who is in the hospital. The dart game was nice while it lasted, but S/Sgt. Rahm got too ambitious, and then there weren't any more darts. Pfc. Balsam provided a chuckle when he forgot to sign the payroll after receiving a money order. --M.A.H.
446TH SCHOOL SQUADRON A hearty handshake in printed form to 2nd Lt. William T Morrison who joined our squadron during the past week. S/Sgt. Pope and Corporal Altheide are now acting first sergeants of two of the s quadrons attached to this field to attend the gunnery school. Like a bolt of lightning came the announcement concerning furloughs and 1st Sgt. Scott found himself swamped with requests within an hour after the official order came through. If Pfc. Manson doesn't watch his step, he'll soon find himself taking the fatal one. An author is in our midst in the person of Pfc. Gruza. Last week he was discovered writing his autobiography since his enlistment in the Army. Our basketball team has started to roll along now we defeated the 343rd cagers the other night with Corporal Parks accounting for 18 of our pointst --K.M.M. 448TH SCHOOL SQUADRON l>erhapa they've been rushing the season a bit, but a few of the men in our outfit have been taking evening dips in the G ulf. They say that the water's fine if you like ice. William H. Moore is leaving for the Flying Cadet School at Maxwell Field next week. "Keep 'Em Flying," Willie. And Harry Vanwelsenaere wants to know if there is anyone on the Field with a longer monicker. There have been several promotions in the squadron recently. S/Sgt. Haffer is now acting lst Sgt Sgt. Kenda has been awarded the second rocker stripe and Sgt. Peterson has entered the "Master" ranks. We're glad to have Corporal Hunt back with us again. He had been confined to the hospital until this past week. Dr. West and Dr Finley claim they will soon put the dispensary out of business. --D. P.A. 447TH SCHOOL SQUADRON rousing cheers of welcome to 2nd Lt. Charles R. Rock who is the first Flying Officer to be assigned to the 447th. A step towards civilization can be noticed in the vicinity of our barracks as road paving progresses. Can the eagerness with which those fifteen new recruits were welcomed be due to thoughts of less K.P. and guard duty? It seems as though the boys have become matrimonially inclined of late and a new high is expected with the number of furloughs that are coming up. Sgt. Kester has submitted his 125th resignation Orchids to Pfc. Laffer who hasn't filled out an application in two weekst --J.T.L. 69TR AIR BASE Fighting 69th had quite a party the other Thursday night. In the way of refreshments, we welcomed the girls with punch and hot dogs. Corporal Dodd served the punch he seemed to have more fun than anyone else. lst Sgt. Bob Endsley announced that any of the men who wanted to transfer out of the s quadron could do so only four men in the entire squadron voiced an affirmative desire. I guess the fellows like the combat outfit and want to continue with their rifle and bayonet tactics. --J.F.B. II II 691ST ORDNANCE V for Victory! --The 69lst" scores again. With a squad of rugged athletes, we won three basketball games on the evening of March 16, 1942. Our first victory was easy a forfeit from the 344th, then came a 16-14 win over the 343rd and finally we downed the 350th cagers to the tune of l8-l3 not a bad day' s work. What sergeant made his first 2 points of the season? --S.J.R.
FINANCE It seems as though the practice of sweating out the mail isn't limited to enlisted men, hark our own Lt. M cKn ight who does a g ood job of it everyday at mail time. Why do Costigan and Clooney have to work on their day off, namely, raking up in front of the barracks? It seems as if s/Sgt. Farr has forgotten abou t his Georgia interest and has acquired a new one here in P. c. Also T/Sgt. Unde rwood doesn't do badly in P. c. either. Lt. Shofner is still waiting for a clear weeken d to try out his boat we hope the tryout is successful and that t his Flo rida "liquid" sunshine soon solidifys. CGB. SIGNAL SERVICE COMPANY Weather Detachment moved into our barracks last week and now there's a pretty rugged outfit down there by the water tower. Lt. Thorpe has made an addition to his staff a secretary to give our office th-at feminine tou:h. Her name is Miss Miller none of us has gotten around to asking her first name, but the hinges on the door leading into the office certainly got a work outt Our lieutenant is one of the busiest officers on the Field. Besides being Signal Officer, he is also the post's Weather Officer. You are apt to find him on top of a telephone pole, up in an attic shooting trouble, or down at Red Fish Point inspecting the submarine cable. Despite his many responsibilities, Lt. Thorpe still finds time to listen to our troubles and help us out whenever possible. The lieutenant has supervised the lation and directed tre temporary telephone system that is now being used on the Field. William Hines took a trip to Jacksonville last weekend and admits that h e did some oscu lating. --W.M.H. 350TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Jrirst Sergeant Anderson took a short furlough to Mobile on Thursday, but was back the same day it began wonder if a P.c. brunette had something to do with it? He's trying to get himself well established before departing for the officers' candidate school. Our congratulations to Sgt. Bruner on his acceptance into the same school. Sgt. Murray took a furlough to visit his folks in Charlotte, but had gone only as far as Columbia before being called back for cadet exam. What was he doing in Columbia? Captain Strobel visited in New Orle ans this past weekend. Incidentally, this is Anderson pinch-hitting for Twitchell, w h o is visiting the homefolks in Vero Beach, Fla. --H.C.A. QUARTERMASTEH Private King must be in rare form now that he takes those reveille dip s in the Gulf every morn o nce in a while, anyway. We all know that the success of our bowling team hasn't been due to the boys' a bility alone if it were not for the fact that Colonel Moore and his wife were right there on the scene of battle giving them agement and i nspiration they certainly would have fal tared in the closing stages of the league race. The Quartermaste r a n nounces the opening of its new Sales Commissary this week under the supervision of Lt. Ya tes Pfc. Hoffher was pleasantly surprised during the week by the unexpected visit of his mother and sister who stopped over at P. c. on the way down to Miami. Did you know that Dogget was a banker back horne? M cDonald pals around with a fellow who is an honest to goodness Count, formerly from Belgium, now here in the Army Is Sgt. Edwards happy with his l'il bundle from heavent Listen men, all c ontributions are welcome. -R.K.G.

11KUARTERMASTER KEGLERS KOP KROWN11 Despite the fact that they had dropped but one game in five weeksg until Thursday evening the best that the QMC keglers could. do was to climb into a tie for first place with the Finance pin men. That's how matters stood at the beginning of the last lap in the Tyndall bowling raceo H owever5 before the week was over, the QMC men not only found themselves resting on top of the league, but had to peer down into third place to catch a glimpse of the team that had led the league throughout the season! It was on Tuesday that the Quartermaster boys first breathed the rarified atmosphere that is the privilege of champions. On that eveningp due to an oversight or a precaution on the part of the Signal Corps, QMC broke away from their tie with the "Wizards" and took a three game lead through forfeituree With QMC in front by three games5 the stage was set for Thursday's match between the Finance and 448th keglers. A triumph in each of the three games would mean a tie with the leaders for the Wizards; to win one or two of the games5 would clinch the runner-up spot. On the other hand5 a complete of the trio would be necessary by the 448th pin men before the evening's toil w ould mean any change in their final league standihgo Definitely not overconfident, the Financiers discovered early in the match that a first place tie and pos. sible play-off with QMC was just a pipe dream. The initial game went to the 448th5 794-707o Trying desperate ly, but to no avail, the Wizards dropped the second contest, 714-797o Then like a prize-fighter sensing the kill, the 448th keglers, with 2nd place honors in their grasp, fell on their hap less victims and rolled up the evenings highest team score, 804 points against a disappointing 670 -BOWLING CO NT IN UEP -Bobby Costigan of the Financiers, provided the evening's only thrill when he cleared off a 4-7-10 split in the final gameo To the 448th, their final spurt meant not only runner u p honros, but also the highest three game team score of the season. Outstanding players on the various teams were numerous, each squadron had their own ace keglers, and to pick out the best would be a difficult task. A glance at the records reveal, however, that the consistent high scorers of the league were Walsh and Peterson o f the 448th Hynlka and Kamm for t h e Quartermasters, and Anderson and Cos t igan for the Finance Detachmento ,----FINAL S TANDINGS Won QM"CoGoo -r7' 448thoo 15 Financeoo 344thoo Hq & Hq Signalo 14 13 11 9 5 0 Lost -4-6 7 8 10 12 16 21 High Team Score, 448th---869 High Single Game: Woody 343rd---245 High 5-man 3 games: 448th--2395 High man 3 game total: Paul Walsh., 448th---606 BASKETBALL W L W L 349thooo 5 0 447thooooo 2 3 448thooo 4 0 446thooooo 2 3 69lst o 5 1 348th 1 4 69thoooo 3 1 343rdooooo 1 5 35Qthooo 4 2 344thooooo 0 4 66thoooo 2 2 Hq & Hqooo 0 4 349th vs. 448th 350th vs. 344th WEDNESDAY --446th vs. 66th 348th vs. 69lst --447th vs. 69th
