, I Vol. I No. 18 Army Air Forces Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Fla., May 23, 1942. PROMINE.NT P.C. CITIZENS VISIT TYNDALL Colonel w. A. Maxwell observes his guests partake of a 11G.I.11 meal as Panama City's leading citizens get a first hand taste of Army life. A.E.R. FUNDS DRIVE CONTINUES Colonel Floyd M. Hyndman, Officer in Charge of the local Army Emergency Relief Society, announces that the recent appeal for funds in the Panama City theatres netted very close to $500.00. While this sum will aid the AER to begin its important work, the men on the Field are urged to continue personal contributions to their own cause. SERVICE MEN INVITED TO DANCE All Service. men and their friends are invited to attend a dance at the Panama City Armory on Thursday, May 28 at 9:00 P. M The dance is sponsored by the BaY. Hig h School Band. The ad mission to men in the Service is 55 per couple. "I want to take this opportunity to thank you, not only for myself, but also on behalf o f the citizens of Panama City, for the most enjoyable and interesting outing which you, and the personnel o f Tyndall Field, gave us yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality." The above letter was receivedqy Col onel Maxwell from Mayor H.G. Fannin, as an expression of gratitude for the tour o f Tyndall Field that was provided for the city's leading citizens on Wednesday. It was a gala day for the one hundred and fifty members of the leading civic organizations and officials w ho accepted the to get a personal view of Tyndall's activities. The group was picked up in "G.I." trucks at the armory in town and taken t o Pos t lleadquarters, where they were greeted by Colonel Maxwell and the exexutive staff. The Colonel then took charge and personally hosted his guests as they inspected the Chapel, the mess hall, (where they were treated ma typical G.I. meal), a barracks, the newly built Recreation Hall on the Gulf, and finally, the gunnery ranges. Tyndall's sharpshooters performed with their usual skill at the skeet ranges, but the visitors were most impressed with the "jeep" range. It was on this rang e that Mayor Fannin's desire to fire a machine-gun was fulfilled. The Mayor showed amazing skill with the .22 calibre machine-gun as he consistently scored direct hits on the moving target.

"Tis rathe r G od w ho s eeks f o r us, Than we w h o seek for Him. 'Coventry Patmo r e 1 s wife died, l eavi n g him a baby boy. It was a serious task to carry o n for both f a t he r and mother but he undertook it. One day the s mal l son transgressed and it was the father's judgment that he s hould b e p unished. He shrank f rom it, yet h e did it tenderly but honestly. The child went u pstairs t o bed weeping bitterly, and Patmore sat alone and miser!ble. Later, loo king into the boy's room, he saw him asleep, tears still on his f a c e a n d beside him his toys--six or seven s hells, a piece of broken glass, a b ottle with bluebells. That night Patmore wrote; Ah, when at l a s t we lie with tranced breath N o t vexing Thee in death, And Thou rememberest o f what toys We made our joys, How weakly understo od Thy great commanded g ood T hen, fatherly n'ot less Than I whom Thou hast moul d ed f rom the clay Thou'lt leave Thy w rath, and say, 'I will be sorry for their childishness .'" Horace Mann, speaking at the opening of a reformatory f o r b oys, said that if only o n e b oy were saved from r uin, it woul d justify all the cost and labor of establishing the ,institution. Afterwards, a friend a s k e d the eminent educator if h e had not exaggerated a little. 'Not if that boy were my son', was the solemn a n d c onvincing reply.

TECHNICAL SERGEANT GREEN To many o f the older Air Corps men stationed her e at Tyndall Field and at all other p osts in the Training Center, Technical S e r geant Charles F. Green, assistant to the Chief Clerk, is known as one of "Fry's bicycle boys." The reason for this designation is that in the old days at Field, Sergeant Maj o r Fry would start all of his new men off as bicycle messenger boys, which marked the beginning of a very rig orous progra;n of training. This training proved to be so effective t hat a t practically every post in the Training Center either the sergeant major o r the personnel sergeant major received thei r training under Sf:.,-t. F'ry. These men have been referred to as the "Army eli te." After finishing high school at Knoxville, T e nn., Sgt. Green worked for more than a y e a r as an apprentice mechanic. He enlisted in the Air Corps in J a nuary, 1 937, and was sent to Eglin Field, F l a for his recruit training. At t h a t time Eglin consisted of only o n e wooden barrack s and four sets of tents and was a gunnery range for the Tactical Sc h ool at M axwell Field. Af t e r three mont h s at Eglin, he returned to Maxwell a s clerk in the sergeant major's office. He remained there u ntil sent to Tynda l l in Nov., 1941, whe r e he serve d as personnel sergeant m a jor until his recent advancement t o the Chief Clerk's Office. LIEUTEN A N T COLONEL WAUGH The promotion l ast week of Major Richard R Waugh to t h e rank of lieutenant colonel mark ed a hig h point in a career that has been characterized by unusually rapid advancement and outstanding achievement. Colonel W a u gh w ho i s only 31 years of age, has set some wha t of a record in that he has risen, i n the course of ten years from th e grade of private to the rank of lieutenant colonel. Exactly ten years a g o he was a privat e first class and battery cler k in the 13th Coast Artillery F ort Barrancas, Fla. The colonel was reared and educated in Missis sippi. He attended Millsaps College Jackson Hiss., from 1928 to 1930 and then enlist e d in the Coast Artillery H e s e r v e d for, two years at Barrancas as a private. In 19 3 2 he won, t hroug h a very toug h competitive system. an.appointment to .!:'oint, from whi ch he graduated in 1936. He was company o fficer in the 1st f rom 1 936 t o 1938, whe n he became company c o mmander in the 21st Engineers. H e attended Cornell University in 1939, from which institution he received a Maste r of Science degree in engine ering Entering t he Air Corps in 1 940 for pilot t r aining Colone l Wau g h received his wings in May 1 941.

Mrs. Singleton is on the way to winning the award for making the most improvement since the tournament began. We also .want to mention Mrs. Wiseman, who certainly has a wicked wallop. Her pins scatter to the four winds. It's fun to watch Mrs. Brant ley's ball. Thou g h slow, it raises havoc with the tenpins. Although Mrs. Morrell didn't bowl in our first tournament, we'll wager this isn't her first tournament. Picnic plans are progressing peculiarly. -rre 1 re going to have trouble in deciding who wlll be the losers in time to prepare the feast. Watch this colunm next week for the results.
