COLIN KELLY VISITS TYNDALL FIELD An agile 81-year-old lady climbed a wing of one of Tyndall's planes last Saturday but couldn't quite decide to go flying. She was Mrs. Parkhill Hays, of Monticello, Fla., the grandmother of Captain Col in Kelly of that west Florida Town. He was a hero of the early days of the war in the Philippine when he sank a Japanese battleship, giving his I ife to aCCOIIp I ish it, TO lnSUI\..E Tyndall Field was transformed into a veritable miniature Hollywood for the past two days with ace news cameramen plus the Air Force's new traveling laboratory busy cover ing the story of the training of an aerial gunner. The newsreel cameramen were John P. Muller of MGM's "News of the Oayr and John Hermann of Paramount News, with Captain Elwood H. Neener of Rochester, N.Y. in charge of the Army crew. An estimated aud i encP of "/'!. 0')0 000 in this c;our,trv, and Australia wi 11 see the MGM and Paramount rea I eases; and inasmuch as the Army film is for general consumption, it is possible that many more than this number may see it. A miniature dummy plane, painted with Nazi Swastikas was torn to shreds by fast machine gun fire for the filming of scenes on the jeep range. Scenes of practice were taken on the skeet and air ranges, along with a number of shots of formation flying. Hermann; the Paramount man, is holder of a Congressional medal awarded for his work as a member of Admiral Richard E. Byrd's second expedition to the South Pole from 1933-35. LT.

' ; ,, The CHAPLAIN'S PAGE The Question Is Asked: "Why Doesn't GOD Stop WAR?" Somebody ought to stop war o Last Decemb e r9 the cost of this present war was $639000.000 a day according to "Newsweek". And9 the money cost is the least cost. Poverty. resentments. and fears will come and follow after war 9 which may take centuries to overcomeo Truth9 fair-play. generosity. good =will. culture. and civilization all have to be set aside while wars are fought. Yes surely somebody ought to stop war with its ferocity, treachery. and hatredo But. who? God could do that. The love of God in our hearts. God doesn't stop war because He doesn' t want to stop human freedomo He puts the responsibility for war upon us. We are fortunate here in America. Today on the birthday of our nat ion, we can think of those nation al assets which are not mentioned in the "stock market finals". Life liberty. and the pursuit of hap piness" and the freedom to worship God. These are values we should prize anew in a world bowed under the tyranny of dictators, and are the greater r iches for which we may give God hearty thanks on this 4th of July. They constitute America 1 s true weal tho Let us humbly rejoice in them and g ive thankso Let us worship God, and thus preserve th= ese as heritagesfar our children. Chaplain Herbert T Wilson You and I would do it if we could. wou l dn 1 t we? Just give us the pow= e r and see. Then why doesn't God stop war? But9 wait a minute. If you had the power of God put in your hands to use9 just how would you e;o about stopping war? By some gigantic miracle you could take the know ledge of the making of ents of war away from man.

{;,lim fff First Lieutenant Walter F Silva, assistant post adjutant is an officer with whom every Tyndall Field soldier is acquainted, as it is his signature that makes official all special orders and bulle-tins issued from post headquarters, which affect the service man's life in a multi tude of ways. However, he is far from being the grim and hardboiled officer such as one might b e led to picture. He greets everyone with a cheerful smile and like his superior, Captain Howell, rarely ever l ets the pressure of his many official duties get the better of his good disp9sition. Having served as commanding officer of nine of the eleven original Panama City squadrons, Lt. Silva understands the prob lems of Army administration from the standW point of the squadro n as well as from tAat of Headquarters. A graduate of New York University, where FIRST LIEUTENANT SILVA he received a degree in mechanical engin eering in 1935, the assistant adjutant was for more than five years a machine design er for the United States Rubbe r Co. Called to active duty in the Army in Feb ruary, 1941, Lt. Silva was sent t o Maxwell Field, assigned to the Panama City units, and made adjutant of the Air Base Group. He attended tb3 Adjutant General's School, Washington, D. c., from March until May of this year. As assistant to the Supply Officer (S4), Technical Sergeant Harry Boone is charged with the responsibility. of insuring that the severely limited amount of office TECHNICAL SERGEANT BOONE e quipment and other supplies are distributed over the field in such a way that from them. the greatest possible benefit is derived Sergeant Boo n e i s a native of Hazlehurst, Ga., and grew up at Webster, Florida. Be graduated from h i gh school in 1936 and won a scholarship to Rollins College, which he attended for a year. The sergeant then became a salesman in Baltimore, Maryland where he remained until he enlisted in the Army at Ft. Benning, Ga., in 1938. After serving in the Field Artillery at Ft. Benning for eleven months, Sergeant Boone transferred to the Air Corps at Maxwell Field, Ala. At that station he served first as an airpl ane mechanic and later as a clerk in the message center, Southeast Air Corps Training Center. Entering supply work in 1940, Sergeant Boone transferred in May 1941, to the Panama City unit shortly after it was a c tivated at Maxwell Field. As assistant S4, he was transferred to Eglin Field, Fla., in September, 1941, and came to Tyndall the following December.

846th QUARTERMASTER Apparently our Big Nin e could have beaten the best of Ball teams Sunday with the zeal and zest they displayed when the team smashed Port St. Joe in the initial contest. The team was highly geared up for the encounter. The score was 15-8. This was a nip and tuck affair to the fourth ending, when Port St. Joe was movin g at a pretty hot pace and they were chilled by the pitching of Pvt. Glover, the ace of our outfit. The remarks made by the local fans in that section was that they hadn't seen a better amateur ball club for a 1 ong time. A great deal of this credit is due our First Sergeant Allen, who has been keeping the men in tip top .. ;:r LT. SMITH It looks like the pride of our outfit will be leaving us for a while .. Sgt.
