-, 1 \ Vol. I ) No. 13 Ai r Corps Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Florida, April 18, 1942 LT. GENERAL ARNOLD VISITS TYNDAlL LEFT TO RIGHT: Col. Maxwell, Lt. Gen. Arnold and Gen. Stratemeyer. NEW PROMOTIONS ANNOUNCED Colonel Maxwell announced the promotion of three officers in addition to those mentioned last week.. They are: Major John E. Pluenneke to Lt. Colonel; Captain Thomas B. Carnahan to Major; and lst Lt. Loren A. Bryan to Captain. Lt. Colonel Pluenneke, Post Surgeon, is in command of the Field's hospital. The Colonel has served as an officer in the Army Medical Corps since 1929. Major Carnahan, Plans and Training Officer, is a . member of Colonel Maxwell's staff. Captain Bryan is the Commander of the Tyndall Sub-Depot. Accidentally omitted from the promotion list of last week were: 2nd Lts. A .G. Casey and G.C Rush to lst Lieutenant. Lt. Casey is an assistant Mess Officer Lt. Rush is the Personnel Officer for the student detachment. The Chief of the Army Air Forces, Lt. General Henry H Arnold, inspected Tyndall Field last Thursday, and before leaving stated tha t he was well pleased with .the progress made in building up the gunnery school to i t s im portant position in the country's war effort. However, the nation's ranking Air Force General stressed the fact that it is in the fina l results that he and the people of America are interested. Present for the occasion was the Co m:rhanding General of the Southeast Air 'Corps Training Center, Major General George E Stratemeyer and his staff. Both generals, escorted by Colonel Maxwell, gave the Field a thorough inspection and examined every phase of the gunnery school training program. General Arnold was particularly interested in the various e:;unnery ranges, where he found that Tynda .ll was definitely not lacking in sharpshooters. In fact, some of the boys m ade it look so easy that the Generals themselves took over the machine-guns on the jeep range. The Army Air Force Chief was impressed with the usefulness and in the ingenuity of the construction of the jeep range. Another member of the inspecting part;y was Wing Commander Charles Beam ish of the R A. F. Commander Beamish will remain on the Field for'five or six weeks in the capacity of liason adviser on flexible cunnery. He has 'served in a similar capacity in other U. s. gunnery schools but is now anxious to be returned to co mbat duty o f which he has had extensive experience in the present war.

A (!UWITH T#ff As you trave l along the roads of Wes Virgini a you will see, what a t first appears to you to be a m a n a State Trooper, standing in the middl e of the road. H e has his righ t arm up -raised as a signal of caution. In front of him, there is a sig n that reads: "Caution, School Zone s low dovm to 1 5 miles p e r hour. This man is not alive. H e i s mer ely a sign, but so life-like. He is so lifelik e that many think he is flesh and blood, when they see hi::n for the first time. Tha t s i g n stands there silently carrying a vivid messag e that n o one can i gnore. It speaks safety all the time. I t warns drivers they are to be careful, and thus protect human life. It warns of dan[;ers to come It warns of d anger s ahead; hidden dangers; d angers that you c annot see ; dan gers tha t mie;ht be. God is like that. He ever s tands i n the we.y, warning u s of dang ers that lurk ahead. He wa rns u s t h r .)ug h friends. He warn s u s t h r ough o u r conscience. He warns us throu g h small tre> ubles. He permits us to have small troubles, that w e -rna y heed the warning and thus uvoid the s erious ones. Like the p r ophet of old, if' we are wise, we t oo will say tha t w e are turninr; ''ack into the obedience road, back into the Master' s Road. God is always watching our lives. If bad luck comes to us, i t is because we hnve not heeded the warninr,, b u t have tol d (;oct that He does not k no w what He is t alking about, and we rtave gone recklessly past the sig n Then whe n trouble comes, we blame it on bud luck, and not on o u r own foolish self. Or, we b lame God. --The P rophet said, 11I have sinned; for J k new not that thou stoodest in the way against me: N o w t he r efore, i f it p leases thee, I will get me back a gain. Numbers 22:34. --Chap lain Tillson. ANNOUNCEMENT: There will be an Episcopal Holy C ommunio n ::;unday at 7:30 /1.. M. in the Cha pel. CENTE OPENSDespite a torrential rainstorm which was enough to discourage any rug-cut ting soldier and his lassie, Tyndall' s new Buildint was officially opened 1'hursday ni te with a dance that set a new hig h for attendance and enjoyment. An estimated 500 jive fans spent an evening keepinp; time to H o y Wood's orchestra. Major w F Shipmar). wa s responsible for the arrangements and h e was assisted by Mrs. Anne Livingston of the F l a State Recreation Projects. Apprecia t i on is also extended to Marjorie P Doty who wa s responsible for the larg e of young ladies. U.S.O. activities for the wee k include: a pu rty to-nite for Tyndall's student gunners; the r er;ular Tuesday evening dance ; and the for mation of dancing instruction classes on Friday evening These events will be held in the P anama City building. ARMY EMERGENCY WORK TO SUPPLEMENT RED CROSS ACTI VI Tr ES Under the direction of Lt. Colonel Hyn d man the l o c a l chapter of the new ly formed Army Emergency Relief Society will soon be organized and begin its campa ir;n for funds. Whil e i t is t rue that the work of the Army Emergency Relief is sunilar to that of the American Red Cross, Col. Hynd.r.1an wishes to stress the f nc t that the two ore;anizations will no t overlap treir activities, but rather, will wor k hand in hand. P o s s i bly the only difference between the two units is tha t the E mergency Relief Society will carry on where the Red Cros s cannot continue in the relief o f personnel emer g encies. Pay-day contributions by the men at Tyndall Field which hither-t o went to the Red Cross w ill now be directed to the A rmy Emergency Relief Fund In ad dition to thi s source, numerous r e v enue-raising activities a r e p lanned.

. -Technical Serg;eant Howell Combining ef'ficiency with a smile that is both genuine and c h aracteris tic, Tech Sergeant Daniel S HoweH has built himself up a reputation as being about the most jovial man on the .Field. He is one of those rare persons who can exercise authority mo.intain discipline and at the sarae time keep the r;ood-wlll ar.d r e s pect of his subordinat_es and superiors. As Sergeant-Major of the 80 t h Air .Base Group, Sergeant Howell fills an important position in Tyndall i''ield' s administration. H e enlisted in the in 1935, serving first in the coast artillery, then in t h e infantry and in May of 1939 he was transferred to the Southeast Air Corps Training Center, Maxwell F'ield, Alabama. At M axw ell Howell, previously from a coast artillery clerical school, w a s appointed as First Serg e ant of Headqu arters and Headquarteri Squadron o n M 'arch 15, 1941. H e served as. First Sergeant until last February when h e was appointed Tech and promoted to his present position. A native of Virginia, Sergeant Howell's favorite pastime is to boast that State's virtues. When not ex-. tolling the "Old Dominion", Dan like s to spend his reading a g ood book. Of course, the standing joke about Dan is his Chevrolet, which each day developes a new a ilillent. 'l'he latest story is that anyone w ho wants to ride 'in it mus t firs t bring water f(.)r -the l eaking Lt. Colonel Hyndman With the excepti o n of Lt. Colonel Clifford J. Moore, the officer at Tyn .. d all w h o has s erve d longest in the armed f o rces of his countriis Lt. C olonel Floy d M H:yn d man, Of ficer o f 8 0th Ai r Base Group. Col.

Durinr; the e arly part of his Army career, the 8 0 t h Air Base Con uuander served a considerable length of tim e in the P hilippine Islands and was com .. missioned t here in 1917. He spent m os t o f the p eriod between 1918 nnd his reti r e ment at Ft. Riley, Kunsaa, a s a r eg imenta l offi cer and instruct o r in cha r ge o f wea pons. Th0 people of Panama City claim. Col.

We wish to go on record as stating that if there is any other outfit that has any designs on the Post softball crown, it can forget about it here and now. Happy returns to the boys from Cha nute Lowry Fields who have just come back into the fold.

You know that you have our best wishes. For stories tingling with a bit of Munchausen, see "Capt." Bernard. Did you know that Staff Sergeant O'Neal used to be a first class catcher in the Georgia-Alabama League? And in two or three weeks at the most, we should have a good ball team since most of the fellows have had previous experience. Corporal Morris seems to be the busiest man in the squadron, he's always in such a hurry. Add peculiararities: Sgt. Ryan worries when he receives maill We miss Pfc. Lauve and his "tr umpet."

SIGNAL CORPS Thorpe was recently promoted to Captain, and we all extend our rather belated best wishes. In the not too distant future, we expect to see gold leaves replacing those silver bars. The dial system has been in operation for more than a week, and seems to be working quite satisfactorily. It is especially popular with the switch board operators. As a matter of fact, it is their salvation. Miss Dauphin lives a life of' comparative ease now that she doesn't have to operate the old switchboard. Anyone having trouble getting his party cannot exhibit his impatience to the operator, but has to suffer in silence. Yes, those dials are real pals of the operators. How about a Post baseball team? Sp ring is here and there are lots of talented men that are getting the urge to play ball. Softball is fun, but .it can't take the place of baseball. The Field should be able to have a ball team that could hold its own in the Southeastern Area. Nearby camps, towns, and Air Bases are likely opponents. Competition wi ll be keen and it wi 11 give the boys something to do on Sunday afternoons and on evenings throughout the week. Most .of the fellows enjoy a good ball game. There is plenty of open space around Tyndall to build up a suitable field. Perhaps if enough of you fellows send in your opinions we'll have a team formed in several weeks. "Danny"" Blummer's love life is looking up. He hasn't been stood up in the past two weeks, and that is some sort of a record for him. Congratu lations, D:anny, we knew that your persistence would be rewarded "Hank" Brozanski was asked by an admirer how he developed his physique. The inquirer wanted to know if it was done by weight lifting, wrestling or what. He replied that he was "just healthy."

'1 BO\IVLI:-.JG BRIEFS Team "A" bowled itself into first place in the play-off last week a f ter a strenuous session which resulted in an impasse between all four competing teams. It happened thusly: with the score standing Team A 11-ll, and Team "B" 10-12, Team "C" 11-ll and Team "D" 12-10 it seemed certain that the last two games would resolve the tournament, but it turned out to b e not quite so simple. Team "D" lost two games, Team B'' won two, and Teams "C" and "A" each won one and lost one, giving each team a record of 12-12. It had previously agreed that should there be a tie, the tying teams would bowl one line and the team with the hie;hest pinfall would be the "winnah." Nerves were wracked and sinews strained in that final line and tension ran high. Team "A", composed of Mrs Moore, Maxwell, Mrs. Bane and Mrs Clay ton, calmly and confidently knocked down 479 pins to garner the k e gling crown. Teams :'B", 11C", and "D" definitely weren't in the groove. As for vital statistics for t h e tournament, Team "A" had the highest team score for one game with 505 pins, and Team A"'s Mrs. Moore the best individual score with a total of 155 p ins. So it is not surprising that the "A's" e mer ged victorious. The ''Targette11 deems it sui table to offer orchids to Tea m "A". BOWL I NG-Cont.

I BASKETBALL SEASON CLOSES The Tyndall Field basketball tournament wound up with the Ordnance Detachment taking top honors. The original schedule was cut short due to the fact that the local Red Cross Chapter required the use of the gymnasium to carry on their work. The Ordnance cage m en finished the season with a record of 7 wins against 1 loss. The teams of Lts. Engelbrecht and Taylor tied f .or runner-up honors. While he wasn't. born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Private John H. Williams was practically brought up with a golf club in his hands. Pvt. Williams of the Ordnance Detachment has been playing golf since he was ten years old and now has twelve years of amateur competition to his credit4 Williams hails from Tuscaloosa, Ala., where his father is the proprietor of a popular nine hole golf course. His ability with the irons never quite reached that of the "master" but for the past four years John has been a member of a man team that has competed in the Southern 4-Dall Champ ionship' Tourney which is dedicated to Bobby Jones. Young Williams' best game was scored during the Montgomery Invitation Match when he turned in a score of 65 on a par 72 course in the qualifying round. John attended the University of Ala bama where he won the golfing championship four consecutive semesters. Also, in 1940, he won the city champ-ionship of Tuscaloosa. Pvt. Williams spends his Sundays teeing off at the Lynn Haven cour&e gi ving pointers to some of our amateur golfing officers. During the week you'll find him in the A. & R. office as assistant to Lts. Thompson and Kopeck. In answer to the inevitable question, John can proudly reply that he has made not one, but two, holesPLAY BALL./ The big time performers of the baseball world opened up h.ostili ties last Tuesday and up to the moment that this paper went to press, showed severalunexpected occure:hces.

.. ... -;:--From Camden, N.J., has come the an-R IT Z nouncement that the huge RCA plant had ceased the manufacture of radio sets, and had within one week transformed its vast facilities and had begun production on vital war tools! The rapidity with which the plant was converted is typical of the speed with which America's artists have offered their services to'the nation's war effort. Characteristic of this the action of Vick Knight, producer of many of radio's outstanding hits, such as the "March of Dimes" and the Hed Cross programs, who has relinquished a $600-per-week position to volunteer his services as producer for the now famed "Command Performance" broadcasts that are short-waved to u.s. fighting men at home and abroad. * HERE AND THERE ON THE AIR: Radio' s "Oscars", .or awards for merit, were announced last week and top honors for the year went to ace CBS writer-producer Norman Corwin for his history making "Bill of Rights'' program last Dec. 15. Also awarded the blue ribbon was foreign correspondent Cecil Brown for his eye-witness account of the sinking of the ''Repulse11 and "Prince of Wales." Alfred Wallenstein, Mutual's distinguished maestro, garnered honors for his accomplishments in the field of music. Eddie Cantor will make his first broadcast from an army unit when he airs his "Time to Smile" show from Ft. Monmouth on Wed. nite . Lanny Ross leaves CBS on May lst Frank Fay discontinues his variety show at the same time. And due to war priorities, "Spotlight Bands" bids goodbye next week.
