Intimate GllmJ2ses Major Andrew P. Lerche, youthful Post Operations Officer at Tyndall Field, is a native of Albany, N.Y., and a graduate of Rennsselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, N.Y., from which institution he received a degree in mechanical engineering in the class of 1931. Foll his graduation, Major Lerche enlisted in the Engineering Corps and served as a private in the Panama Canal Zone for a year. Early in 1933, the Operations Officer was sent to Randolph Field, Texas, for flight training. At that time two yean'. of training was required before a cadet received his wings, and Major Lerche was commissioned in March, 1935. Upon completing his flight training, the Major left the Army for a year and worked as a mechanical engineer at Langley Field, Va. In July of 1933, he returned to Randolph Field as a basic flying instructor. After taking a very stringent competitive examination, Major Lerche won a commission in the Corps of Engineers in 1938, and served nine months on troop duty on the Mexican border near Laredo, Texas. In March, 1939, the Major returned to Randolph Field as instructor and remained there in that capacity until transferred to the Basic Flying School, Maxwell Field, Ala., in 1940 as Assistant Training Squad ron Commander. PRIVATE NEWSOM Tyndall Field has a private among its personnel who is entitled to wear seven stars on his service stripe in recognition for his having participated in seven major battles of the first World War. He is Private .villiam H. Newsom, who was a member of a machine gun battalion in the 5th Division during the War. He participated in or practically all, of the major battles of that conflict in which the United States took part in. Private Newsom was seriously wounded in battle and was awarded the purple heart for meritorious service. There are very few veterans in the United State$ who saw as much of the struggle that unseated the Kaiser as did Newsom; and a man who can wear a sevenstar service bar is almost as scarce as a four-star general. He was discharged.at the end of the war as a first sergeant, but preferred to re-enter the service recently as a private. Private Newsom probably saw as many German soldiers in action as any other man who participated in the war, and he definitely does not believe that the modern German soldier is a On the contrary, he firmly that with proper preparation the United States Army can defeat the Nazi legions. However, he does not believe that the war will b e a short one and is of the opinion thn t a hard struggle lies ahead for the American people. An instructor on the skeet range, Pvt. Newsom is an expert rifleman and operated an athletic club at Hillsboro, Ohio, before he enlisted in the Army recently.

The program, pre sented b y a group of Tyndall F'ield d ramatists, depicted the life of the average u.s. aerial gunner before and during his training period.

Due credit has been given to the men responsible for the excellent production, and we believe that if the same standard c an be m:,intained in future programs,the perseverance of the folks of Pariama City and the men at Tyndall will have bee n well rewarded.

RED. CROSS Red Cros s knitters are continuing to meet at the Club onJrlonday afternoon s as it is so nice and cool. At a recent Mrs. Maiwell gav e a report of the credit hours earned by Tyndal l Field women. It was surpris ing to learn that approximately 1600 hours are chalked up to our credit. As of July there are 55 knitters. If you have completed any work and desire new yarn before the next Red Cros s meeting, see Mrs. Alcott, as she has been appointed Assistant to Mrs. Maxwell. Mrs. Alcott lives at 203 MacArthur Street and her telephone numbe r is 1104-W. Another of information which Mrs. Maxwell has asked us to call to your attention concerns those who are transferred before completing an article. Please leave your unfinished wor k with Mrs. Alcott or Mrs. Maxwell and do not plan to take it with you. Someon e here can finish it for you and relieve you of .that much extra work while you are moving and getting set'tled. The sewing group is now meeting at the original Red Cross Headquarters, the old bank building on the corner of Harrison and First Streets. According to those who attended Monday's meeting, it was pleasant and cool. Gowns for the emergency hospital here in Panama City must be finished as soon as possible and there are a great many needed. This necessarily means more workers since the few faithful ones cannot carry the whole load.

REVERBERATIONS FROM THE TARGETTE ROTOGRAVURE SECTION: Mrs. Stapp thought it was lovely but recognized no one on the page. Mrs. Mitchell's comment was that ir any one was admitted to the Field on her pass, it would be an insult. Mrs. Alcott remar ked that she seen her duty t o her country and she don e it. At Mrs. Samuel's suggestion, we will award her the Oscar for the outstanding picture of the year. Mrs. Waugh says that frankly she wouldn't care to have an enlargement. Mrs. Max well commented--"Quote, You wouldn't want to print wha t I said, Unquote". Mrs. Carnahan had hoped that no one would recognize hera but 'since everyone did she is forced to the conclusion that she must look like that. Mrs. McClelland's verdict was that her picture was goodl -much better than pass picture! Mrs. Howell just thought it was too hot to think, but finally added. "It was awful". Mrs. Gaston. as a doctor's wife, feels that from the looks of her picture she needs a shot of something. Mrs. Moseley is of the op1n1on that on the whole the page re semble d a "Rogue's Gallery" but that her picture did her more justice than some of the others.

0 LT. JOHN L. IIOORES ur Commanding Officer is taking a well-earned rest and the very capable Lts. Efinger and Barbour are carrying on in a very efficient manner. Also, Neal, Primzback, Fredrikson and Malloy are doing a swell job in the front offices. All the boys send their love to J.T. Lee, Fisch, Forgette, and Ewha who are doing time in the hospital. OUTFIT OBSERVATIONS: Why does everybody refer to Postmaster Baker as the "F. B. I. Kid?" Willis, Pasvantis, Postiloff, Skelton and Carter take jitterbug honors at the U. S. o Coy Taylor plays pool the old fa.shioned way-a good strong right arm that fortunately needs nothing else to back it up Lawrie has come up the hard way, but fastl Goodhart has the hottest romance _in the outfit Mulcahy, our dart champ, will take on all comers Sisco and C.

I ORDNANCE COMPANY f Sgt. Christina appears haggard, and worn these days, don't blame it on the sun. His favorite ping-pong partner has departed for Macon, I wonder why Sgt. Ray is so popular with the men of his organization? It must be the "line" he hands the boys. Could it be that lst Sgt. Ridulph is substituting West Point, Ga., for De Kalb, Ill.? He and "The Cottondale Kid" (Sgt. Barr) seem to like it fine. -rw. T 846m QUARTERMASTER COMPANY he Motor Pool "Clowns" are greatly disappointed because of the postponement of the game which they were scheduled to play last Sunday. Toe men were in the best of shape and could have taken on the best of them. Could the improvements seen in Pvts. w.m. Hickok and Ralph Thomas be the re sults or their newly acquired corporal ratings? These men are the first to hit the line each and every morning. Cpl. Baker was all set to leave on his furlough when an order popped out for his return to school to complete an unfinished course. Can that be the reason for his downhearted look here of late? Sgt. Marquis really makes the Bay Harbor belles' heart flutter when he 'switches that persona.li ty smile on. Lighten up, Sarge, and give your fel low comrades a break. -WJB w: LT. G. A. SCHROCK e are glad to have Pfc. Joseph Quinn back with us.

The Brooklyn Dodgers won another un scheduled game the other night. Pvt. Milton Levy claims that the "Dream" game was ao exciting he to count the attendance.

c & So ldiers Suspect Sabotage a s Seclus1on Ceases Local F.B.I. agents quietly dropped the investigation of charges ot sabotage in the Post Hospital despite the protestations ot the fifteen Tyndall men who were recently "victimized" by a case of German Measles. Details ot th. charges have not as yet been made public and reliable sources believe that the true facts may never be disclosed because the chief culprit, Pvt. Owen Ernest, has sworn that he will never reveal how he "broke out" with a case of the German Measles. The "TARGET", which has specialized in "spot news" reporting now claims an other great scoop on all other leading newspapers of the country with a tiret hand account of what went on behind the scenes of Ward #4 during the 21 d a ya o t quarantine. The "TARGET" which up to now has had to remain silent on the dt. uation in deference to the investigation by the various authorities, can now reveal that it was prepared for just such an emergency as this and had diapatched one of its reporters to Ward #4 where he was admitted just a few seconds before the twenty-one day quarantine was .declared. Reporter Kore Porral ls ex actly what in his own wordss "It was at 2,00 P.M. on July 1st when it was discovered that Pvt. Owen Ernest had contracted the German Measles. Word spread like wildfire all around the ward --for thirty minutes confusion reigned. Words are i ncapable of describing the scenel Men rushed around in G.I. pajamas on e another about the length of a Measl e quarantine. Same just sat up in their beds a far away l ook in their eyes already scheming on what books to read during the ensuing three weeks. When order was restored by the authorities (Major Medof and Lt. Markowitz), and it was officially announced that the men were under quarantine, t he only voices heard were those of the three or four men who were to be released che following Because of the distance, it was impossible to tell whether th en wer e happy or sad but naturally no one would admit that they were but burnt up over the situation. Eventually the excitement ebbed and like good soldiers, the boys went back to their magazines, radios and crosgword puzzles. The day s passed slowly, but not too slowly, with the chief diversions being "bull sessions", radio programs, chinese checkers, letter writing, and Pinochle. The future g enerations o America are going to be the losers because a stenographe r was not present to jot down the contents of the fierce di.soussions that took place daily. A faint idea of just how profound these debates were, may be obtained from the fact that the subjects discussed ranged from "The value of knowing Latin in the 20th Century" to "How short shall skirts be worn in 194511 The hours between "lights out" and slumbertime were spent in quizzing the guy three beds down to your ieft. This after-dark quizzing was quite popular until one of the bo y s fell asleep and was just about to answer the $64.00 question in his dreams, when he was awakened by a heated discussion as to who is the great er second baseman, Joe Gordon of the Yanks or Bobby Doerr of the Boston Red Sox. After that incident, and the complimentary names that were exchanged forgotten, the quizzing was left to Phil Baker and his "not for a year, not for a lifetime, etc. This little interlude in the tedious task of wiru1ing a war will probably be long remembered by those fortunates who had the presence of mind to stay in the war d long enough to become subject to the quarantine. And in all probability, t h e most p leasant memory that these men will take with them are those precious hand holding moments with Miss Curry at pulse-taking t ime. (Twice daily) Miss Curry, as nurse of ward #4, is given an even chanc e of surviving the ordeal. so often she had to be relieved by Miss Skinner, who would very tacttully 1 ull her rank on the boys when they started to get out of hand.
