ORGAlliZATION FORMED The first step towards the organiza tion of a Non-Commissioned Officers' Club took place on W edne s day with a meeting of NCOs of the first three gr ades in the Pos t Theatre.

UBUSU.AL STORY FOR "RULERS OF THE SKY" With three fairly successful prog rams under their belts, the producers of Tyndall's Radio Series, "Rulers of the Sky", have an unusual story for their fourth edition of the drama. On Wednesday night the group, under the supervision of Lt. W.J. McKinsey, will tell the story of an Aerial Gun ner's escapade with Americans who haven't awakened to the war. It will tell about Nazi spies and how they dupe well-meaning Americans into giving them information. Pvt. Louis Stepanian, who wrote the story especially for this series, made the statement that,"Although incidents and characters are fictitious, reference to living persons is intendedl
Some day if you visit Mount Vernon, Washington's home, you will see his sword. Look at the blade. On one side is engraved "Recte facies"; on the other, "Neminem Timeas". There you have Washington's philosophya "Do right. Fear no one". Washington engraved that glorious motto on his sword bepause it was ten deep in his heart, deep in his soul. Because he lived thosefwords, because he couldn't consciously betray ideals in the presence of riend f e, because he was never a "yes" man to anything cheap or seurv,y, be ausq r he never feared enemy bullets or bullying friends, o is/ oul and nevor did he have to hand over his proud sword in 'in ngueror, not even to human respect. Today that gword rests in his home. It is a lesson, an inspiration, a challenge. our own soul -to do right and fear no one. "" \ \ \ Jewish twl --

The newly arrived Tyndall Chaplain and Mrs. Wester are now the proud parents of a new Chaplette. It will probably be several years before the men on the Post will be able to avail themselves of the services of young Chaplain Wester, but we'll bet that he's already begun to preach some very loud sermons. Good news to the Post's movie goers is., that in addition to the recently installed water fountain, the Post Theatre management announces that much more comfortable theatre seats have not only been ordered, but are expect ed to arrive any day nowl Sgt. Jack Sikes, one of "Target's" able reporters in its infant days came through the other day with a couple of interesting stories from the Post Of fice. Jack called us last Wednesday and reported that some sixty letters had arrived for a Pvt. Edgar Van Val kenburg. It seems that Pvt. Valkenburg was due to arrive from to become an Aerial Gunner. We were all hopped up about it and were awaiting Edgar to find out who all the letters were from. Unfortunately, we never found out, for Pvt. Valkenburg either has missed his bus, or preferred Miamito Panama City. At any rate, he hasn't arrived here, and besides losing out on the public ity we planned to give him, he's going to have to do some tall explaining to somebody I Jack also told us that a letter had been received from an "S. F Germany, 117 So. Gadsen, Tallahassee, Fla."-the letter was addressed to "Pfc. Charlie (no last name., just a photo), Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Panama City, Florida." In case "Pfc. Charlie" is still on the Post, he can claim the letter at the Post Office, but remember you told her you were born in Lybia, because that's what she has written on the envelope"Born in Lybia." Most of the men probably know by now that the Post Library is located in Building #343, the Divisional School Group Headquarterswe mention this because we can remember when therewas n't any library., and if you wanted to study up on something, you were just out of luck. There are plenty of fic tion and non-fiction volumes to borrow in addition to technical books.

W "BLUEBIRDS" e want to welcome Lt. Howard W. Berg, our new Engineering Officer. The excitement for the week is being furnished by the "A" and "B" lists that everybody is sweating out. The best way to figure it out is that those that want to go will stay and viceversa. The other day we had a surprise phy sical examination and no one knew what it was all about until the last minute but it was rumored that they were try ing to find a girl who was posing as a G.I. in the squadron and quite a tew of the boys searched for the fictitious stowaway in vain. Pfc. A.J. Snead A .''WHIRLING WINGERS" hearty welcome to our new batch of men, may your stay with us be nothing but pleasant. Congratulations to lst Sgt.

Amadae Rose back on duty so soon after his operation Our rec ,hall is being fil led with Polka beats emanating from a newly acquired Phono-Radio console. That new building in front of the hospital is going to hold the key to the analysis of our flying men-it will be the home of Tyndall's new low-pres sure chamber. We wonder if there is any truth in Sgt Ed Mullins' statement he i s going to install a soda fountain at the pharma cy so that he will feel at home? Sgt. w.m.

Oh for the life of a farmer, especially in New JerseyS Hank is now looking forward to getting in the corn toward the end of September The business combination of Blazac and Angelletti is prospering. Their laundry concession in our barracks is the envy of everyone-well, almost everyone Angelletti is acting as the "contact'' man, and, as is expected. Blazac, of Finance fame, is taking care of the bookkeeping. Need any more be said? Captain Thorpe finally missed a day at the office. Previously he hadn't missed since his arrival at Tyndall way back when snakes were still boss out where airplanes rule now. A typhoid shot was supposedly the cause of his absence. He probably took some one's phone .out down there in the Medical Department, and they doubled u p on that injection. Pfc. Wm. M. Hines T LT. C. L. NEWTON he best of luck and success t o S/ Sgt.

COOPIRA!IOB OF liD liDDED 'fO IWSURI ll'P'IC IIIIT !ILIPHOBB SIRVICI John Thorpe or the Post Signal Oit'ice has asked that the following hints be observed tor more efficient telephone aervicea For calls between service men and their families, the service men themselves can place the call more quickly than the folks at home. Civilians making calls to military posts should keep the telephone addree sea ot their friends and relatives in the service close at hand eo as to be able to give the operator back home the fullest possible information as to how to reach them by telephone. The men can assist in this by sending home as much information u military secrecy wi 11 permit. Service men should inform the folks back home at what time it would be moat convenient tor them to receive the call, avoiding the rush hours. SBBLL!D BY JA.P SUBS AS A WOW-oOJIBl!.&n', ftlll4LL GUBlER IOW RI&DT POR RBVDOI Fred w. Ahrens, recent graduate ot the Gunnery School and now a sergeant, is one of the few men at tyndall who have "seen action" in the present st.ruggle. Sgt. Ahren's biggest gripe is that at the time, he was a non-combat ant and couldn't do a thing about -the submarines that shelled him and hie fellow workers. Ahrens was a cook tor defense work ers on Johnston Island last winter and since the illand is located between the Hawaiian and Wake Islands it was constantly being dhelled by lurking Jap subs. The subs didn't do much dam age, but the idea or just standing there and "taking it" without hitting back was too much tor Ahrens. The Sergeant returned to st. Louis in April and enlisted in the Air Forces at Jefferson Barracks.
