. ... ... .... 161 GUNNERS GIVE $10122 TO A.E.R. MElT TB! POST WIATRER FORECASTERs Maste r Sergeant Sam Gacesa, of New Brighton, Pa., came to Tyndall Field ib mid-Feb r uary to set up the Post Weather Station. At the time of the cenlal weatherman's arrival here, he poueued the rank of "buck" sergeant. Today, five and one half months later, Sam Gacesa p roudly wear s h i s master aergeant etri pes. At t h e age of 24, Sergeant Gaoesa ranks among the young eat Matter Sergeants on the Post, sharinc honor s with U/Sgt. Dick Underwood ot the Finance Detachment f1'IDALL Jill BARMOIIU OVBR WDLP The mellow voices and native songs of the ten stud ent gunners of the Roy al Netherlands Flyi'ng School, who performed aver WDL P last night, were a rare treat. A c c ording to Pvt. Charlea Stepanion, pro gram director, arraDceaenta are being made to have theae boys aing a g ain very soon. Tyndall Field was honored last week, hon ored by a group of men it had grad uated from its Gunnery School. It is doubtful if Class #31, 1942, will ever be f orgotten here and it is quite pos s ible that the men or this class will, i n the near future, give the world good cause to remember it. The members of 142 (men and boys) quietly and without fanfare, contribu t e d tlOl.OO towards the Army Emergency Relief Fund on pay day. The fact that these men were mature enough to re alize the risk of their chosen duty i n the service of their country and to fully appreciate the responsibility they owe to their wives, children and p a rents, leads but to the COnclusion that the s e men will perform with the same clear headed, accurate thinking when they meet the enemy in the sky. SUET SBOOTBRS oo:rwo GOOD JOB According to the latest telegram received from Lt. G. D. Hubbard by Cap tain H. o Avery, the Tyndall Skeet Shooters are "doing a good job" in the Nat i onal O pen Skeet Championship mat che s now bei'ng conducted at Syracuse, N. y I n the first telegram, received on Wednesday, it was learned that Lt. H. B Joy, Jr. was first in the Class "A'' 410 Gauge e vent and Lt. Hubbard 3rd. Lt. Hubbard placed 2nd in the Class "A" 28 Gauge event,wbieh the Army won. Later information reveals that in the 12 Gauge event, the Army #1 team was defe ated by Navy, 491-493. However, the Army # 2 team downed the Navy 481-478 i n the same event.


GOD AND DEIIOCRACY wls God neoeasary1 Yeal Without Him, there can be no real American democracy." That was the unanimous conclusion of a symposium of Catholic, Protestant and Jewish law students. Their reasons followr 1-The founders of Aaerican democracy officially declared that the justification for their work was to be found in the wLawa ot na-ture and of nature's God." 2The whole philoaophy of American democracy is contained in this quotations -we hold these truths to be self-evidentJ that all men are created equalJ that th-.y are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rightsJ that amongthese are lite, libertyand the purauit or happiness, thatto secure these rights, gov erDmenta are instituted amOJlf; men, deri Ting their juat powers trom the consent or the governed..... 3-Our right, therefore, come frO. G.od and not from the government. Our Federal and State Constitutions, Bille of Rights, and all la1r1, are not the source of our rights but aimply a recognition of and protection for righta that God has given to each man. 4The fact that our rights come from God rather than tram the state or gov ernment ia the main reason that dictatorship is inconsistent with Americanism. 5-The fact that "all men are created equal", that il, equal in the sight ot God, ia the reason why all persons, regardless of race, color, or coadition, are equals before the constitution and laws of the United States. 6-The American Declaration of Independehce was an act ot faith in God. Its principles are acknowledged to be self-evident truths by men ot all religious beliefs who fought to make America free and independent. 7-Because God is the Author ot Liberty, faith in Him is an indispensable requisite tor the life of America and American democracy. To do your own job is not enough, that is no virtue, democracy is not a gift, it' a responaibility. ---Thomas Jefferson.

. e Intimate Gllmf2ses The s o ldiers of Tyndall Field are indebted to the efficient work of Captain Ray L. McCullough, Post Employment Off icer, for the presence on the field.of so pretty and capable girls. The men believe he .is doing a swell job, and hope that he will b e able to c o n t i nue the good work until every lad has his lassie. Capt &in McCullough's home is in Burlington, Kansas, where he has lived all his life except for the time he has served in the Army. He enlisted in 1916 and was sta tioned for a year on the Mexican border, near Eagle Pass, Texas. At that timethe United States had quite a large on the border as a protection against and in pursuit of Villa. It was while at Eagle Pass that the Captain took part in the first motor convoy ever held by the Army. It was an experimental trip from his station t o San Antonio. On August 5, 1917, "Bugler" McCullough's outfit was called to duty and stationed at .....,. _.camp Doniphan, (Ft. Sill) Oklahoma, until April, 1918, when he went overseas with the 137th Inf., 35th Div., participating i n three major battlesaf the War. In 1922 he joined the Kansas Nat'l Guard as a 1st Lt. in the Field Artillery. He was promo t ed to Captain in Sept. 1940, and was called to active duty on Dec. 23, 1940, with the 1 s t Bn., 16lst F.A. and stationed at Camp Robinson, Arkansas. Previous to his transfer t o Tyndall on Dec. 8 1941, Captain McCullough served as a F.A. Bn. Umpire during the swmner maneuv ers i n Tenn., Ark., La. and the Carolinas. STAFF SERGEANT LSDBETTER An o utstanding record has been made by Staf f Sergeant Oral Ledbetter, chief of the Drafting Department at Tyndall Field sinoe he came to t h e Gunnery School on D ecember 25, 1941, and established the de partment whi c h is now recognized as o n e ot the beat on the Field. Evidence of his ability wi l l be foun d in the fact that during the past six months he has been promoted, up on recommendation of the D e partment ot Training, from private to his pre sent grade o f staff sergeant. Sergeant Ledbetter has received a number of commendations from his superiors. On Kay 1, 1 942, the Public Relations Division of the Army Air Forces described as "noteworthy" a drawi ng by the Sergeant which was used on the front page of the Panama City News-Herald on Day T he letter, which was addressed to the com manding officer, recommended that Ledbetter be commended for an "outstandingjob". A graduate of the Ameri c an Aoad.ay of Art in Chicago, Sergeant Ledbetter was connected wi t h a commercial adv ertising firm in La Porte, Indiana, before he en listed in the Air Corps. His home i s in Muskegon, Michigan. During the pastfew weeks, the Sergeant has been working on illustrations to promote flying safety.

. e RED + CROSS For ou r las t meeting at t he Yacht Club not many knitters were present but several new garments were turned in. We're glad to know that knitting goes on a t home even though t he ladies can't get out to the Monday meetings. Special. attent i on for all knitters-no more meet i ngs at the Yacht Club. Beginning next M onday, both sewing and knitting g r o ups will meet at the, old Red Cross head quarters, the b ank building at the c o r ne r of First and Harrison. Please d on't forget or get lost next Monday, same hour, new place. Again new y a r n can be secured and completed w ork turned in to Mrs. Al during the w eek. Only thr e e seamstresses w e r e p resent at the s ewing group. All the night shirts are finished and now women's dresses are being turned out. These are attrac tive and fun to work on. A great deal of outside sewi ng work is being done by volunteers under Mrs. Alcott. This is to help fill the quota that must be turned in by 1 HOUSEHOLD HINTS Never pull awnings up or leave them up while wet. Rolled damp they will mildew or rot. .Be careful not to spill foods or liquids on the kitchen radio. It may start a fire. Did you know that make sugarless tea by adding 3 or 4 oldfashioned lemon drops to your hot or iced tea? This is a handy picnic idea, too. Did you know that you can avoid those white water marks if you slip a piece of wax paper under your flower vases? Did you know that the juice left from sweet or sour pickles, makes an excellent .base for aspic, when combin ed with gelatin and tomato? Did you know that pressing trousers with a newspaper, rather than a damp cloth, gives them a more lasting crease? If you have any household hints you would like to share, call any one of the editors.

Everyone F to be having a fine time at the new Of Club last Saturday night.We're all glad to know that its now in operation. Too bad Mrs. Bane had to start her home nursing on a Saturday night. More Aircraft Observers a r e needed at the u.s.o. building. The work's not hard nor the hours long. I f you can help' in this work call M rs. Alcott or Mrs. Wentworth. Mrs. Morton, a co-editor of this page is spending this week at her home i n Montgomery. What's happened to the welcoming committee!? For tips on trailer trends call Mrs. Wilson.

Q.M. SOrTBALLERS P1aah1Dg champiaaabip torm afield, and behind the five-hit pitching ot Jobzmy Downq, the Qu.arterater aott'ballera defeated Lt. Schrock' Brownie laat Tuesday to capture the !.Jndal l Sottba11 Crown. T he defeat waa the aecond in a row auttered bJ the Br ownies at the hands ot the Q.K. teaa and gave the Q.K.a the majority ot the two-out-three aeries needed to win the Post championship. fhe acore was fairly indicative ot the comparative strength ot the two with the margin ot dittere. noe accounted tor JDOatly b7 the eight walks allowed by Brownie pitcher Hoth. Downey, the Q.K. flinger, was not quite a s spectacular as in the first tussle in which he walked none, tor three B rownies reached base via this route on Tuesday, however, D own.y added ten more strike-out victims to his list. the B r ownies played good ball, but not quite good enough. They probably could well have used their first string pitcher am catcher, Stephana and Belk, who were away on turlough. An unusual tact about the two games in which these two teams ha ve met is, that n e ither the Q. M.e nor the Brown lea. oODIIlitted an error in the 14 innings o t play& QUARTERMASTER Gregory lB lolan CP' Jones SS Kitch 11 2B Albr en Lenaeua RF LentlieSF Maxwell LF Buxton C Down8)' P AB R H """! 1 0 0 2 0 0 1 2 2 0 1 0 0 2 1 1 2 0 1 1 1 2 0 0 BROWNIES DR H Kanlcin 2B -s' 'n" T Elliot C 0 0 West l B 3 0 1 Gafford SS 1 0 0 Cata1er 1 0 Kani u 1JI' a o 1 Fitz1ck CF 2 0 1 Ackern RF 0 0 Byera SF 0 0 Hoth P 2 0 1 R H B BRODIES 0000100 QUARTERMASTER 0 2 0 0 1 0 X t 6 0 DOUBLES a 111 tchell, Al britten, Do!rney. 8.0. bJ Hoth-2.

The Clowns had to give way to better ball playing. The final score wasa close squeeze, 18-21. Believe you me, it was an exciting game for everyone. Some very fAncy plays were made by both teams. :gt. Pruitt, manager of the Motor Pool boys gave Port St. Joe something to remember him by when he hit two home runs. Pvt. Glover pitched an exciting game for six innings, at which time he was relieved by Pvt. c Davis, who hurled them down the line with terrific speed. He also connected with a smaah that sailed over the fence f o r a home run. We're proud of our team for the gal lant showing they made. Their spirit symbolizes the fighting spirit of our boys in the armed forces of our United States of America. --Wilson J. It was announced this week that Lt. s. J. Kopach would succeed Lt. L. R.
