GENE.'RAL MacARTHUR SPEAKS: "Corregidor needs no conunent from me. sounded its own story at the mO'tlth< of its guns. It has scrolled its own on enemy tablets. But through the-bloody-haze of the last reverberation shall seem to see a visio n o f g r im, gaunt, ghastly men still unafraid." It has epitaph shot I Could it be that they are unafraid because they have found God vital, and real to their souls? These men, on the "front" do not "play" with religion. It is real, to them, as reports from various Chapl ains on Bataan and Corregidor demon strate; "Religion plays a vita l role in the lives of the beleagured troops. These troops, at the front, are finding God necessary." "Religious and Biblical literature was at a premiu m f rom the beginning of the Bataan front." "The Bible is bein& rea d her e by m e n a s I've never seen it read before." "A very genuine and great increase in religious interest ha.s been shown." "The spirit of sharing and cooperation among all personnel to the ad-vantage of all concerned will always be one of the memorable incidents from the Bataan campai gn ---if we come out of this alive we o ught to be bigger and broader men." "A staff sergeant's right arm was totally disabled from a car accident. The sergeant begged to be allowed to return to duty on the grounds that he could handle a side arm with his left hand and do guard duty, thus releasi n g some other guard for the front lines. Undaunted by refusals by several doctors, he kept pleading until he was returned t o duty with his unit." These men are fighting for us. Should we support them? Could we let them down? They do not "play" with religion, and neither should we. Shall we attend Chapel Services?

f/a/() TECHNICAL SERGEANT RATLEY Technical Sergeant John L. Ratley, chief clerk of the ordnance property office, 1 s unmistakably proud of two things: one is that h e is a part of the Army and the other is that he is a member of the local ordnance company. Evidence of the sergeants enthusiasm for his work will be found in the fact that he rose to his present grade in less than two years, and that he attained it when scarcely 21 years old. Sergeant Ratley grew up n oar Montgomery, Ala., and graduated f rom the Sydney Lanier High Schoo l there in 1939. Following his graduation, he did construction work for one year, and enlisted in the Army in 1940. The sergeant was stationed at Max well Field for a few months and was then sent to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., where he attended a special ordnance school for non-com's. Following his return from ordnance school Sgt. Ratley was promoted to the grade of staff sergeant and sent to Eglin Field, where he was stationed until transferred to Tyndall Field on October 18, 1941. His work at Eglin merited a promotion to technical sergeant on September 29, 1941 In his present position, Sgt. Ratley plays an important role in the requisition of ordnance property. He is an enthusiastic boxer and lists that as his chief hobby. He is married and has one child. ., PARKS I CAPTAIN THORPE Anyone at Tyndall Field may pick up the t el.Gphone receiver, dial four nu merals, and immediately g e t the party or numb e r desired. It all sounds very simple, and actually is simple in so far as the average user of the telephon e is concerned. However, few realize how great has been the amount o f hard work, skill and managerial ability required to build the system up to its present degree of perfection. Credit for Tyndall's efficient communications system goes to the Signal Service C o mpany which i s under the command of Captain J ohn Thorpe, former official o f t h e American Telephone and Telegraph Company. U pon co min g into the Army, a very large number of men have had to take up wor k i n which they had no training or experience in civilian life. This has no t been true in respect to Captain Thorpe, for his entire civilian career has prepared him specifically for the position he is now filling. The Signal Company c ommander is a native of Needham, Mass., and received his education atM I. T., from Which institution he graduated with S.B. and S.M. degrees in 1936. He had four years of ROTC. Since 1936, h e has s erved in various capacities with A. T. & T. in Louisville, Atlanta, Durham, and Charlotte. He came to Tyndall in August, 1941.

BOWLING RESULTS Won Morton 10 Bane 9 Nimocks 7 Vernocy 6 Lost 6 7 9 10 Highest Score of the Week: Mrs. Pluenneke 148 BOWLING BRIEFS Thursday saw the neck-and-neck finish of the second bowling tournament. The Morton team proved worth its sa.lt. .After the firat game they had it in the bag. They were lucky for in the second game Bane's team really outrolled the c hampi ons, undaunted by the knowledge that the tournament itself was lost. In f!l.ct the keynote of this tournament has been team spirit. On the last day, knowing they were. the losers, Vernocy' s and Nimocks' teams bowled just as hard as had had a chance, to the end that the Nimocks' team finally got off the bottom. The highest individual score for the entire tournament was Mrs. Pluenneke's 152. Those showin g marked improvement were Mrs. Wiseman, Mrs. Singleton, Mrs. Wilkins, Mrs. Alcott, Mrs. Morrell, and Mrs. Hester. It was decided to postpone our next tournament until cool weather, so we expect to see everyone at the beach. In anticipation of this, the party after the last day of bowling was at Panruua City Beach. The picnic was a success from cocktails to sunburn and was a gr&nd finale to the STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL: At a recent gatheringMrs. Class was seen to be taking lessons on how to "Put Your Little Foot". ***With all our present shortages Mrs. Bryan gets holes burned in her new silk hose-a horrible catastrophe. Mrs. Thompson says, "I'm married" is the proper response to "Is this an official call?11 ***We're glad to see Mrs. Blom all settled in her new home-too bad that she is going to be unsettled so soon. *** What is Mrs. Fox to do with her new bowling shoe. s now that the tournament is over? *** Another new comer to MacArthur--Mrs. Bristle.

The big event of the week was supposed to have been the boxing bouts scheduled for last Wednesday evening. Eight bouts were originally but allhad to be cancelled at the last moment because too many contestants found that they could not be relieved from their regular duties. However, the A&R Office a n nounces that a new fighting card will be drawn up and these bouts will be held on Friday night at 7:45 P.M. The switch to Friday night _is being made in order to parmi t the Camel Caravan Road Show to use the boxing ring as a stage for their perfor mance here on Wednesday evening at 8:00 P.M. BASEBALL So far, the turnout for the two previous baseball practice sessions were not quite as large as was expected. It was hoped that enough men would be interested so that two and possibly three separate teams could be formed to represent Tyndall Field in compet ition with other air base teams. All men interested and possessing ability are urged to attend the regular Saturday afternoon practice .sesions at 3:30 P.M. and also watch the bulletins for announc ements concerning mid-week practic e calls.

R.C.A.F.ro A.A.F. A circuit of Time was completed when S / Sgto John McClellan walked into Post eadquarters last Wednesday afternoon and discovered that Tyndall's P erson nel Sergeant-Major was T/Sgt. Robert Donan. Donan and McClellan were "bud dies" back in 1938 when they were students at Hind's Junior College in Ray mond, Miss. When they parted in '38, Donan joined the Army and since that time has been station. ed at four different Army units p (Me.xwell Field, Jackson A i r Base, Eglin Field and Tyndall Field). Meanwhile: j ohn ny McClellan went East to 1Jew York City where he obtained a position in one of the leading hotels. When hostilities began overseas, McClellan applied for appointment as 9n Aviation Cadet While waiting for his application to be accepted, he became impatient and decided to go up to Canada and join the Air Force trere. In Canada. McClellan completed h i s trainin as a sergeant pilot an d was looking forvmrd to being sent across the Atla.ntic for combat duty, when the Ameri can-Canadiail Commission announced that citizens who were serving with the R.C.A.I<'. would be given an opportunity to take an examination and transfer into the u.s Army Air Forces. Joh.nny, and hundreds of other American youths who' had w ith the Canadian Forces, took advantageaf the offer and have now been transf erred to various U.S. Air Bases. Many of the sergeant-pilots w ho arrived at Tyndall Field were a bit disappointed when they learned that their duties here would consist main l y of towing targets for aerial gunnery practice, but they all realize the importance of this phase of the student gunnery progrs..m and they feel that if this is the task the u.s. asksofthem, they will certainly do their best at it.
