. f 4 I Vol. I No. 11 Air Corps Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Florida March 28, 1942 GUNNERS GRADUATE MONDAY CHAPEL SET FOR DEDICATION APRIL 5 tiJ. Tyndall Field's beautiful new chapel is rapidly nearing completion and the date of its dedication has been set for April 5, according to an announcement this week by Chaplain H. T. Wilson. Final touches on interior are now being made and a new $ 1500 Hammond organ has been installed. Until permanent pews are received chairs will be used for seating. Station in Panama City is making arrangements to install a direct wire to t he Field and in the near future church services and a program of organ melodies will be broadcast. Final plans for the dedication ceremony have not yet been completed, but will be announced in next week's edition of the TARGET. DIAL TELEPHONE SYSTEM READY FOR SERVICE. SOON Installation of a dial telephone system for the Post by the Signal Corps is almost completed and the 200phone unit will be ready for service within the next two weeks. All wiring for the unit will be lay:.. ed underground and approximately 150-000 feet of cable will be used. Lt. John Thorpe, Signal Corps Offi cer, is supervising the intricate work of putting the automatic system into operation. Housed in the Signal Building, the unit will greatly facilitate communication on the Post and to Panama City. Tyndall Field's first class of enlisted aerial gunners will receive diplomas Monday morning in ceremonies beginning at 8:30 o'clock. The exercises will mark the completion by Class 42-13 of a five-week course of instruction in flexible gun nery and intensive physical training. The men were sent here from all parts of the country and will be return e d to their home stations. It is expected that the diplomas will be presented by Lt. Col. Daniel W Jenkins, following a dress parade in which the undergraduates will pass in review before the graduating class. The parade wi l l be led by tbe Drum and Bugle Corps. The outgoing class is being replaced by a new squadron or class, w hich will immediately begin its pro gram of tr al.m.ng. The training schedule calls for the presence here at all times of five squadrons and the replacing of each graduating class with a new one. Lt. Garrett Rush, personnel officer of the Student Detachment, declared Friday that the first class had made a commendable record and that encouraging results had been obtained. Physical training for the gunnery students will consist of a two-hour period of instruction six days a week. A full-time instructor is superv1.s1.ng the program and, in addition to gymnastic equipment already installed, two football two baseball diamonds and basketball courts, and a quarter-mile track are now under con atruction. An inter-squadron track meert has also been planned.


Here's a little conversation in which I believe you rill be interested. "What are you worrying about'! "The draft." "That'e nothing to worry aboutl Either you're called or you're not called. If you're not called, you've got nothing to worry about." "Yes, but if I am called ?" "Then you've got only two things to worry about: either you're accepted or you're not. If you're not, then you've got nothing to worry about.!! "Yes, but if I am '!" 11'fhen you've got only two things to worry about: ei ther you go overseas or you don't. If you don't, then you've got nothing to worry about." "But if I do '!" "Then you've got only two things to worry about: either you go to the front or you don't. If you don't, you've got nothing to worry about." "But if I do 1 "Then you've got only two things to worry about: either you die or you don't. If you don't you've got nothing to worry about." 1 1But if I do ?11 "Then you've got only two things to worry about: either you go to Heaven or you don't." (From the booklet, "For Your Own Defense.'') This sounds like hard-headed reasoning, but it's false. Worry about Heaven and Hell first, and the rest will take care of itself. --Chaplain Finnerty. LOOK AT YOUR UNIFORM The Uniform of the United States Army is the most honorable dress that can clothe a man. It is the duty of every soldier to conduct himself at all times in a manner that will bring credit to the Ser vice and himself. The Uniform should be worn with pride and every effort should be made to present a personal appearance that will impress the civilian component with the Army's thoroughness, reliability and training The ill-fitting and slouchy uniform is a disgrace to the wearer and a trademark of a ne'r-do-well. Admittedly, the whole Army should not be judged by a single soldier, but we in the Ser vice know this to be the case and so long as this condition exists, remember that the man that you permit to present an unfavorable appearance in his uniform is detracting from your social standing and is bringing disgrace to you. Look at your Uniform -others do. ANNOUNCEMENTS Again Tuesday night the USO will sponsor an informal dance for service men and this week's dance will honor members of the second gunnery class to be graduated from Tyndall Field. Roy W ood and his band will furnish music for the two-hour shuffle session and the graduating class will lead the grand march. Because of the crowded conditions last week only 15 men from each organization will be able to attend the dance Tuesday. "Sadie of the U.S.A.," a short play by members of the Bay County High Sch ool dramatic club, will be given for Tyndall Field soldiers Saturday night at 8 o'clock at the building. Free Admission. Christian Science Services are being held every Sunday morning at 11 A. M. in the Masonic Temple auditorium above 565 Harrison Avenue. All men of this faith are cordially invited to attend.


Master Sergeant Hathaway Probably the most familiar and typical scene to be witnessed down on the line is that of Master Sergeant Will iam Hathaway riding up and down on his bicycle, supervising and assisting with the work on Tyndall's aircraft. The Post line chief has been in the Army for 21 years and probably has been stationed at more posts, has met more people, and has traveled more widely than any other man on the Post. He has flown from coast to coast and border to border. He was stationed 1n the Panama Canal Zone from 1922 to 1925, and in the Philippine Islands from 1937 to 1940. While in the Philippines, the sergeant went into the country of the Moros, the land of the now well-known bolo swingers who recently made such effective inroads on the invading Japanese forces; and he takes pride in the distinction of having personally met the Sultan of Sulu, their ruler. A native of southern Alabama, Serge ant Hathaway has an amazing memory for people and rarely forgets anyone he meets. He has a lively wit and a keen sense of humor, and is a man of an unusually pleasant disposition. He is a 100 percent Army man, and can convince anybody that a person is better off in the service than in civilian life. Sergeant Hathaway came to Tyndall Field on September 13, 1941, from Max well Field, where he was an aerial engineer. ill JACK ;PARKS Lt. Colonel Jenkins In the days immediately ahead, Tyndall Field will play a vital part in the national war effort in that it is the largest and only one of three Air Corps Gunnery Schools in the United States. The immediate supervision and execution of Tyndall's training program is in the hands of Lieutenant Colonel Daniel W. Jenkins, director of training here. His native ability, his background of experience and his qualities as a man fit him admirably for this task. One of the most notable traits of the training director is the very methodical manner in which he works. He always does a job at the time it should be done and never lays a piece of work aside until it is completed. He is extremely fair minded and impartial in his relations with everyone. His qualities have earned for him the complete devotion and respect of his acquaintances and co-workers. Colonel Jenkins graduated from the Advanced Flying School at Kelly Field in 1929 and was assigned to the Third Attack Group at Galveston, Texas. He later attended the Air Corps Tech Sch ool at Chanute Field, Rantoul, Illinois. He served as executive officer at Eglin Field in 1940 and to Tyndall on Oot. 24, 1941, following his return from a special mission to England where he made a study of British gunnery schools.

This week all Tyndall Field and, especially, Post Headquarters is mourning the loss of Assistant Adjutant Walter F. Silva, who just a few days ago passed on to Washington. for the purpose of attending The Adjutant General's School. 'lYe shall miss Lt. Silva, fam ous for his smiling count enance throughout this section of the woods. remember the lieutenant first when he joined us at the Old Mill at Maxwell Field. And how every Saturday morning he inspected his troops and for discrepancies had us wash windows all Saturday afternoon. Yes, we shall miss Lt. Silva; however, we are proud that he has the opportunity of attending school in the nation's capital city and we know that when he comes back to us, reincarnated or otherwise, he will be a new and a one hundred percent Assistant Adjutant. Good luck, sir, we're behind you We remember when Lt. Carr could hardly wait for the BOQ. to open We are seeking backers for the race featuring Lieut. Bean and Lieut. Witort. Place your bets early Saw Lt. Clayton at Matties last Saturday night While we're on the subject of Mattie's, I might mention that Tyndall Field seemed to have taken over last week-end. I thought perhaps that the BOQ had moved its location Lt.

Said check was returned by the Department of Revenue since the officer had forgotten to sign it We welcome L't. Brantley as Assistant Post Adjutant Congratulations to Lt. Gunlach on his recent promotion to First Lieutenant Just heard that Lt. Mathis is leaving us. Gossett's Gossip will certainly mourn his leaving. He's one of our top-notch officers who b.as done a swell job and made a world of friends, The biggest event of the week has been the big visit to Ed ?odson by his Mother and Dad and Marian. Davy, Herb and yours truly are grateful for a most Saturday evening. Wonder if Ed will acquire a "stripe" during this visit Sgt. Bennett of Director of Training Office should become ed with Corp. M ahon of Post Headquart. ers. Both fellows seem very fond o i' mud baths It is rumored that Sgt. Wood gave Sue a radio-phonograph to keep her co mpany while he is away at Officers' C andidate School. Now, I hear that he is going to make her a pcesent of a canary. Wonder what sig nificance that has? The only person Don Schultz, Personnel Section, is fooling about '!'HAT phone call is himself Sgt. Wadsworth and his co-work er will be found working late on Retreat days Herman Murray of the 66th Materiel says at last his dream may come true. He is really sweating the first of April Sgt. Ralph Edwards says if he doesn't make Tech soon, he will consider attending Officers' Candidate School Harold Walton will b e homeward-bound on the first, and I hear "altar-bound" too What strange fences has Bill Odom been jumping to cause him to tear his O.D.'s?

"Porky" McDonald has organized an evening school in the day room for pool "sharks." He specializes in sinking the # 16 ball. We want to welcome the new fellows from Keesler Field. They are: Privates Seaman, Sievers, Strong, Sughure, Tauris and Stuilton. A salute to one of the hardest working men in the squadron, Cpl. Larid Bourique, our clerk.

Keep at it, Corporal, some day you may have a chance to use it. Blaine Quirl is so lonesome for those days out on the range that he practices with his lariat on his friends, but they hardly take the place of an old cayuse. --IG 348T H SCHOOL SQUADRON don't want to brag, but we understand that the P.C. gals are still talking about our party last Thursday.

Hearty welcomes, fellows, we hope you like us; We're pro ud t o know that some of our boys helped in getting the control tower into operation this week. Sgt. Schultze says the Student Detachment Outfits are rugged. Wonder where he was before going over there? S/Sgt.

Doesn't he k now that Vodvil is a thing of the past? Take care of that hand, Bender, you may need it.


448TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Lloyd Taylor is not observing his weeks restriction in vain. He has impr ove d his literary status by reading the entire works of Edgar Allen Poe, Taylor claims that the restriction brings but one regret-that he will miss his first dance in many a moon. Spring is sprung; the grass is 'riz' and I wonder where M cKenna is? That Mabel fable will be released in June. In other words, "local yokel hooks the pride of Swarthmore, Pa." Look out, fellows, it's catching! Master Sergeant Peterson and his family of mechani c s spent last Sunday morning going over the new plane that has been assigned to the squadron. Just don't wear it out, men. The bowling team wound up in second place in the Tyndall bowling tournament and has challenged the Quartermaster keglers to an u nofficial contest.

J>rize boner of the week: a lady called the and asked where number 43 was. Wit" Ostrenko immediately replied that it c ould be found between 4,2 and 44. (If it was intended to be humorous, his efforts were not at all appreciated.) That big grin on Powell's face means ''furlough." With a lockerfull of bus and train schedules, he guards his furlough papers closer than the Air C orps guards the bombsight. His only concern is the fastest and shortest route to New Jersey. I don't blame you, 'Dick, I'm getting the urge to see a hill and some trees myself. As you boys have noticed, outside lines at. night s1re a luxury. Your mes-sages to town will hav e to be delivered by carrier pigeon until t h e local pay phones are installed. It will be tough on the girl friend s but they will become accustomed to not hearing sweet nothings o ver the phone and will appreciate y o u more when you drop in to see them. Brozanski, Blumer, Angeletti and Pa nasuk took Ostrenko' s boat on her maid en voyage Sun d ay. Results: several blisters, sun burns and a brand new leak. Anyway, the air was good. Charlie Beran goes on the ''graveyard shift" o n the s witchboard well equipped. His tools are a radio, writing paper and a good magazine. This Army life sure is strenuous. Carrying radios to and from work is a that cannot be laughed off. --WMH FINA..."'JCE It seems as if go od weather has set in a t last and the entire post personnel has come down with spring fever. It's even hard work to write this news .(?) colwnn After waiting so long for good weekend weather, Lt.

:MEDICAL DETACIDitENT first nurse, lst Lieutenant Ethel M. Wunderle, reported for duty from Camp Barkeley, Texas, last week. She is scheduled to be our Chief Nurse. Miss Wunderle is a graduate of Hermann Hospital in her home town of Houston, Texas. During her fourteen months of active duty she has been stationed at Camp Bowie and at Fort Sam Houston's large Station Hospital and finally at Camp Barkeley. She was promoted to the rank of 1st Lieutenant on last December 15. Incidentally, our ranking officer, Major Pluenneke, our ranking nurse and our ranking enlisted man, Master Serg eant Peavy, are all Texans. P1rhaps the popular western song; "Deep In The Heart should become the Medico. therne song. With the USO dances proving so popular, this organization guarantees to furnish its full quota at each and every one. --HL M tAT QUARTERMASTER flell, it looks like the old mouse trapp Hermanson is in a rut since la5t Friday's bridge game put "Biffy" Ramey up as high scorer again to take the prize. We are sending a bunch of scallions to the bub that broke off the clothes hangers in the latrine. Scenes on a Sunday morning: A couple of our boys who sort of forgot and walked across the new lawn found themselves raking u p a fine crop of blisters. We hear that we will soon be wearing our sun tans, but I think a few of the boys are trying to rush the season. Sgt. Lee wants to know if it's true what they say about "Dixie"? and Pvt. Vavracan is the v ery proud pappy of a bouncing boy, born on St. Patrick Day. Isn't there a rumor that B.B. is learning some table manners before taking his furlough? "Hemsoth eats onions," complained one of his bunkies the other night. As a result, the whole bay was kept awake. Did you know that Private Podson's mother and sooo pretty girl-friend droppe d in to visit us last week from New York? The new sales commissary is soon to boast of a complete butcher shop. W e have heard that the truck driver' s exam given by the motor transportation department is as tough as the cadet exam ,which means better drivers and fewer accidents, --RG CHEMICAL WA..W ARE ()ne of the Hammonds brothers has M P. fever. It looks as thoug h we may lose him. Cyrus H ammonds managed to get a weekend off recently to visit his folks in Montg omery, We understand that he has the same trouble with Mont gomery cuties as he has with the Bay Harbor belles, He returned to the outfit looking sad and shaky over the whole thing. The rest of the boys were just sad, due to the unfortunate fact that Lt. Lynn again dusted off his glasses for inspection. Oh well, it wasn't a fitin' weekend to be off the Post, anyway, 350TH SCHOOL SQUADRON Bill Murray made another attempt at taking his furlough this week but we're sure that some little thing will bring him back soon. The squadron suffered the loss of their adjutant, Lt. Joseph R Brantley, this week. Lt. Brantley is now Assistant Post Adjutant. Congratulations on your promotion, Lieutenant. The squadron has just welcomed seven new fellows into the squadron. They are Pvts. S D Weeks, W F. Wil liams, J. Wilson, F. H Slade, R. L. St. Clair, J. W Statum, and M Stein man. Too bad about 1st Sgt. Anderson's troubles with an ex-blonde. --TAR

NG BRIEFS About a month ago the word was passed around that anyone interested in bowling should round the bowling alley come Tuesday morning. A large group did come down, enough for four teams of four members each. Since no one admitted much knowledge about rules, we just started in with a vim. The tournament has now rolled into its fourth week with just two weeks left for Team C to catch up. Spilling pins for the two tied teams are Mrs. Pluenneke, Mrs. Silva, Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Mitchell for Team B, and for Team D are Mrs. Thorpe, Mrs. Nimocks, Mrs. Bristle and Mrs. Shofner. Team A, made up of ?vlrs. Moore, Mrs. Maxwell, Mrs o Carnahan and Mrs. Clay ton, is the runner-up, leaving Team C, Mrs o Kevan, Mrs. Blomquist, Mrs. Bryan and Mrs. Morton, as the anchor team. The stakes in the game aren't high, but $8.00 in defense stamps ain't hay. The gals were very much edified last Tuesday to learn that "Pappa." Teague, of local fame, had very generously contributed a Birdseye turkey. Without much bickering, it was agreed that at the close of the series we should eat said bird at a bowlers' luncheon. Mrs. Morton has offered to eat the bones. Any Tuesday or Thursday morning at 10:30 some of youse gals who've been reneging on us come on down and root, root, root, or substitute until the next series starts. be waiting. RED+ CROSS The Tyndall Field Auxiliary of the Bay County Chapter of the American Red Cross got underway with the arrival of some yarn, sewing machines and shirt material on March 2nd.

"All right. now take a letter and take it the way I tell you." And so the next morning Mr. 0. J. Squizz of the Squizz Soap Company, received the following letter: "Mr. 0. K. or A. Jo or something, look it up, Squizz, what a name, Soap Detroit, that's in Michigan, isn't it? Dear Mr. Squizz, Hmmm. You're a hell of a business man. No, start over. He's a crook but I can't insult him or the bum'll sue me. The last shipment of soap you sent us was of inferior quality and I want you to understand -Hmmm unless you crul ship -er furnish -ship, no, furnish us with your regular soap, you needn't ship us no more period or what ever the grammar is, and pull down your skir-t;. This damn cigar is out again. was I? Paragraph. Your soap wasn't what you said--I should say it wasn't. Them bums tried to put over a lot of hooey on us. Whadda you flappers want to paint yer faces up for like Indians on the warpath? We're sending back your last shipment of soap tomorrow. I'd like to feed it to 'em with a spoon and make him eat it. Now read the letter over -no, don't read it over, we've already spent too much time with those crooks. Fix it up and sign my name. What do you say we go out to lunch?


QMC TOPS CHALLENGER Those pins that you heard falling last Tuesday n ight were being knocked out f rom underneath the 448th's keglers a s t h e y tried to bowl over the champio n ship Quartermaster team in a challenge match. Paced by their ace, Hnylka, the c h amps t ook two out of three game s fro m the 448th and rolled up an unofficial h i gh team score in doing so. The 448th pin-men challenged the QMC b owlers a fter t h e latter had won the league crown i n the hopes that they might wi n a "moral" victory. However, the Quar t e r master men proved themselves champs i n a very convincing manner. On the b a s ketball front this week, activity was restricted to a single game on M on day night. Headquarters Sq uadron defaulted to the 343rd and the 344th forfeited to the 350th. The o n e game that was played was a contest between two h i t herto undefeated teams. The 349th cagers couldn't quite catch up to the 448th hoop-men and lost a fiercel y fou gh t for game b y t h e score of 21-24. The victory raise s the 448th quintet into the l e ag ue lead with a record of five wins against no losses and drops the 349th into t hird place. Wednesday's games were not played because of the unexpected use of the high school gym by t h e local Red Cross organizatio n Due to the sudden illness of Lt. L B. Thompson, the A. & R Officer, a schedule for t h e coming week has not as yet bee n arra n ged.

In the American League the Yankees are planning to keep the same team that brough t t h e m t h e world championship in '4l The only possible exception will be the appearance of Buddy Hassett, Dodger and more recently of the Boston Braves, holding down base. Spring training reports show that Buddy has what it takes to m ake the grade with the champs. The BOSTON RED SOX are pinning t heir pennant hopes the arms of their staff of youn g twirlers and many insiders concede the Red Sox a chance if the pitching staff can keep pace with the always powerful Sox slugging. MIKE KREEVICH a former WHITE SOX star has been sold by Manager Dykes t o the Philadelphia ATHLE TICS Mike is still a great ball-player but the deal should have little e f f ect on either team's pennant chances. In DETROIT, t h e TIGERS announce that BOBO NEWSOM is still a holdout Under the new Tiger policy of cutting down excessive salaries, Newsom can hope for very few co ncessions from the club on the basis of last year's disappoint ing record CLE V E LAND will a gain figure in the pennant race, and whether youthful LOU BOUDREAU can keep those from falterin g i n the closing days of t h e r ace is something we won t know 'til September. BROOKLYN has probably added to its strength by the acquisition of ARKY VAUGHAN Arky is still a power at bat and has always been a better than av erag e fielder. O n the other hand, the PITTSBURGH PIRATES may severely feel the loss of the veteran now that Lee Handley's arm has gone dead after hav ing injured it in an automobile ant last December.

THII$T OF rHE WTtiST Almost completely overshadowed by the war itself, the expert reporting by the overseas correspondents deserves more than a passing thought. In fact, the entire manner in which the developments of World War II are being handled by newspaper and radio reporters is worthy of notice. Perhaps when the echoes of conflict have faded away into the valley of peace we will remember and appreciate the spectacular job that these radio and newspaper "leg-men" are doing. For t he present, let us keep in mind that the voices you hear short-waved from Burma. and Australia are the voices of the men you heard from Singapore and Batavia. They are soldiers without arms, fighting at the front, combating the enemy's vicious weapon of propaganda with truth. HERE THERE ON THE AIR: Mishel Pi-astre, concert-master of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, niay be heard playing a solo part when that orchestra broadcasts over CBS on Sun. at 2:00 P. M "What's My Name" launched its 5th year in radio last week. Arlene F .rancis, one of radio's first female emcees, is still holding down the job. (MBS, Tues. 7 P. M.) Lum and Abner will soon tap out for the Blue Network their 2,000th script (written by themselves) in over a decade of broadcastingo They estimate that they have written over 5,000,000 words during that time. And speaking of figures in the millions, Jimmy Dorsey recordings have sold over the 5 million mark for the past year Radio s long-reigning king of singers and the program of the nation's choice popular songs will meet tonite as Bing Crosby and his maestro, John Scott Trotter, appear as the guest artists on the "Hit Parade." Tomorrow ni te at8, CBS's nimble-wited Fred Allen will act as host to the Blue Network's juvenile geniuses, the Quiz Kids." Tyndall Field's own "Review" over WDLP on Mono eves is improving in quality. A salute to Boileau, Troutman and Von Kannon for their efforts.
