Silva; Asst. Post Adjutant, with his new double bars, as Captain Thomas Howell looks on with amusement. GUNNERY GRADUATES GIVE tl?O TO A.E.R. The record high for a single contri bution to the A.E.R. Fund from one organization was broken last when a class or graduating gunners from Tyndall donated $170 tothe fund. Lt. Colonel F. )[. Hyndman, Officer in Charge of the Emergency Relief Organization in this vicinity, stated that this contribution was made by a smaller group of men than the class which recently contributed tlOl.OO. There was a contented smile on the face of the junkman as he left Tyndall yesterday. He had had one of the best collection days in the history of the Field, for his load was weighted down with fifteen bars of gold and eight strips of silver! However, the smiles were not confi ned to the junkman-twenty-three Tyndall Officers and their hundreds of well wishers were also wearing ear-to-ear grinso Yes, the promotions came this week fast and thick, and here they area From let Lieutenant to CaptainWal ter F.

intimate GllmQses Promotions being the order of the day last week, it was only to be expected that First Lieutenant William H. Wiseman, Special Ser vice and Theatre Officer here, should be promoted to the ra. nk of captain. The Captain has held his present position since April 1, 1942. Captain Wiseman was born in Adams, Tenn., near Clarkesville. He lived in Tennessee until he was seven years old, at which time his family moved to Greenville, Miss. The Theatre Officer lived there all of his life until called into the Army. Before he was called to active duty, Captnin Wiseman was in the electrical contra.cting and Neon sign business in his hometown of Greenville. The Captain enlisted in the National Guard in 1924. He rose through the ranks and re ceived his commission in Field Artillery in 1936. He was promoted to First Lieutenant in March, 1941. He was inducted Nov. 25, 1940 and was stationed at Camp Blanding, Fla., as reconnaissance officer with the 114th Field Artillery, 31st Division. During the 1941 Carolina and Louisiana maneuvers, Captain Wiseman was a Field Ar tillery umpire with the 4th Corps Umpire Group. He then returned to Blanding, where he remained until transferred to Tyndall Field on Dec. 15, 1941. MASTER SERGEANT HODGES Somewhat of a record in promotions at Tyn dall Field was .made a short time ago by Mas ter Sergeant Wilton Hodges, who in the course of three days was promoted from the grade of first sergeant to that of master sergeant. He was promoted to technical sergeant on July 30 and to his present grade on August 1. Sergeant Hodges, a native of Brooklyn, Alnbama, enlisted in the Army in 1931 and was asaigned to the 29th Infantry at Ft. Benning, Ga. He reenlisted in 1935 and went to the Panama Canal Zone for six months, and worked in the officer personnel section. The sergeant enlisted in the Air Corps at Maxwell Field in 1938. He graduated from the Air Corps Technical School at Lowry Field, Colo. in 1940 and returned to Maxwell Field as supply sergeant of his squadron. He was transferred to the Panama City units in March 1941, and came to Tyndall Field the following December as first sergeant of the old 66th Materiel Squadron. "your best bet-WAn BONDS''

Price Terry TYNDALL TOPICS Curiosity got the best ot us yester day and we dropped in to see Captain Avery to find out just how our skeet shooters made out in that tournament severa l weeks ago. Captain H.D. Avery is a Range Officer with the Department ot Training and knows his skeet and trap like Henderson knows his prices. He told us that our men that went up to Syr a cuse tor the National ney gave a good account of themselves, but the second team, which here on the field, turned in the best job when they placed second in the Telegraphic competition. They were nosed out by the Jacksonville bunch by a mere two points. It was this "Telegraphic" thing that really had us puzzled, but the Captain patiently explained it to this amateur, and we, in turn, feel that you might want to know about it too. The way a "Telegraphic" event is run is thisa All teams wishing to compete notify the officials of the tourney in advance and then it the team is unable to actually be present at the match, they shoot on their own grounds on the scheduled day and telegraph their scores in to the tournament headquarters. All scores are judged on an equal basis. This is one of the most practical plans we've heard of in years. That wasn't a conga line up at Post Headquarters last Monday, it was juat the line forming for tree ookee with which -to christen the launching ot the "Captain Burkhart", formerly a fishing smack, but now, a full fledged ship. -Sentiment and the grim business ot war probably never will mix too well, but we'll bet that few members were missing last week when the FLA-,_, SHES" staged a farewell party on the anniversary of their activation.

N "RED BIRDS" ow that a certain Pvt. has left us, it looks like the "Wheel Barrel" mystery is about to be solved. The only thing the boys have to do now is to find out where it is buried. Anothe r mystery which needs solving is the strange absence of the hearts of celery whenever celery is served in Kess Hall :/1:1. Thing s I didn't know until novo Before joining the Air Forces,. Pvt. Michae l Polites was in the fruit and vegetable business Pvt. Jack Snoddy was a vocalist with Jan Garber's band. Pvt. Dominic Cavallaro used to beat the drums with the late Joseph Tadduni and his Bluebirds One of our too mod est Pvts. was the leading contender for the light-weight title back in 1915 -he fought under the name of "Kid Pappy". To the boys who'll be breaking camp on Monday, we wish the best of luck and we're certainly going to miss you. -Pvt. Vincent Del Ponte "66TH STUFF" I h e c oke machine at the hangar has become a favorite rendezvous sinoe the boys from the 66th moved in and took over. They have discoveredacute lit tle gadget (?) over there and it seems that the coke the most stra tegic spot from which to observe operations. Pvt. Bell has the sup ply room for a pair of roller skates. He is a wing walker now and feels that if he doesn't get the skates soon, his feet will kill him. Sgt. Brinson was taking all bets on the furlou gh situation and came out on top Better luck next time, boys Pvt. Esposito contributed fifteen dol lars t o Tyndall's Hall of Justice the other day. He was flying a five ton gas trailer too close to the ground. He won't "dood" it again& The boys in room #4 and everybody in general, are glad to see that Sgt. So lak is out of the hospital and back with the gang. Too bad about those plans, tho, sarge. -Pvt. Thomas Verry T 846TH QUARTERMASTERS here has been a great improvement around the company area since Lt. H.C. Shelley has taken command of this or ganization. He is very keen on neat appearances both for the personnel and the area. Pvt. Elmo Berlack has done a commen d able job in painting and carpentry work around the grounds. It seems that he is capable of doing a go od job on ev erything you call on him for-and he puts all of his interest in the task that he undertakes. The fellows are wondering why the sudden change here of late in Pvt. Sh elton. Could a young damsel of P.C. be responsible for his cheerful atti tude? Pvt. Andrews went on furlough to Brooklyn and became engaged, Wed ding bells are expected soon. The Clowns' ball game with the Port St. Joe team last Sunday was cancelled, but Sgt. Pruitt is trying to arrange for a game this Sunday.-Pfc. W.J. W "BROWNIES" ell, the "list" finally came out. Many of the fellows hitting the trail were with the outfit since its activa tion and they have a lot of fond mem ories to take with them. The best of luck and God speed to those men and as for us here, let's see if we can't keep in touch with the gang. Perhaps someday, somewhere after we've won the fight, we c a n all get together and have a "Remember When" party. Squadron Mutteringss Wonder where "California" to roll his eyes? Cpl. Murphy feels positively naked these days, a window fell on his teeth and broke them beyond repair C ongrats to Cpl. Webster on the new paint j o b on his car It has been requeste d that Sgt.

T "WHITE FLASHES II lhe first anniversary of the tion of our squadron was celebrated with "Squadron Day'' last Friday. The men started the day off by doing a good day's work, and then promptly at 8s00 P. )4. all duties ceased and a Dutch luncheon with beer, cie;ars and cigaret tes was served in the mess hall. Sgt. Scott and Sgt. Clear rate a smart sa lute for arranging all the details. The party was a sort of farewell for the men that are leaving. We wish. all our old buddies lots of luck at their new station. S/Sgt. L. E. Smith ha. s procle.imed a new policy which wi 11 end all worries of a soldier. He says 11find a nice looking girl with a good personality, big brown eyes, a good coriversationslist and marry her for the duration and six months. She must also be able to cook. -Sgt. M.E. Gibson "BLACKBIRDS" \tongratulations are in order for Pvt. Bill McKenna who, as captain, led the Tyndall Field Skeet Team to second place in the Telegraphic Sk eet Championships. 'His perfect score was a typical example of his shooting ability. The squadron uses this medium to bid farewell to the boys that are pulling up stakes. Goodbye and good luck to a grand burich of fellows. Many thanks to the men who have done a swell job in landscaping the squadron area. Frank (you got everything) Mangan was so disappointed last week because his name didn't appear .in the' "TARGET" that we de .cided to include it this week and congratulate him on the fine work he is doing a s lst/Sgt. Taylor's assistant. -Pvt. James T. Jordan 0 "CANARIES" ur heartiest congratulations go to the men in the outfit who recently re eeive4: promotions. They certainly de. them. Sergeants Ragland, Owens and Bruner are now entitled to "ShackPay", that is if they decide to take,. thebig step. Welcome to the men who have just recently arrived from Lowry Field. Of much interest to the squadron was the marriage of our "Ace Runner and Reporter", Pfc. Pete c. Hernandez. The wedding was held at the Post Chapel. Best of luck, Pete. Pfc. John E. Lee is still all a fl utter. The stork finally arrived with a baby boy. Maybe that 1 s why he didn't get the right address on a recent letter that he wrote to his wife. Wonder why a certain fellow from Greer, S.C., still insists on growing a "cookie duster"? Pfc. Brown is the fellow. nothing like trying, is there Brawn? -Pre. P. C. Hernandez "ALUMNI NEViS" "we're busy from daylight (or rather, it's still dark) 5;15 A.M. until 9a00They have been drilling the heck out of us. Yes, it's plenty tough down here, but we111 make it O.K. I pulled guard Saturday night and Sunday and believe m,e, I was plenty stiff and tired when I got off." ''Vfe have to march at ATTENTION, and always stand at attention when addressing an upper classman. We have to regard aa COillllissioned officers.? Inspection is THE THING. Everything must be perfect. It*s all rugged, but it. makes an officer." The above are excerpts from a letter sent by Tyndall's former ace gossiper, S/Sgt. Dewey H. Gossett. Gossett is attending o.c.s.at Miami and his letter.gives one a fairly good picture of the rigid training given to the future Air Forces Officers Men from Tyndall seem to be holding their own down at Miami. S/Sgt. Ralph Edwards writes that Lt. Bob Endsley (formerly lst/Sgt. Bob Endsley) is now a supply instructor at the school, and a "damn good one, too" Ralph says. Ralph himself a corps adjutant on the staff of Commander M. J. Hotaling.

0 FINANCE FANFARE ur office statistician figured out that if the present marriage rate continues at the Finance Office, everyone will be married by the night of January 17th. Master Carpenter Joe Cappiello just completed two very fine bookcases for our dayroom. Joe is busy nOW" thinking up questions for "Information Please" so that we can get a set of Britannica& to fill the bookcase. Lt. McKnight's genial presence is missed by everyone at the office. The Lt. is ill and has been hospitalized. rhe best way to become a Pfc., Pvt. Fr&Dlc Leonard found out, was to kid everyone about "bucking" for Pfc. PTt. Lee Lovett received a one striper too. Cpl. Joe Hanak moved up to sergeant. Suggestion of the weeka Pvt. Kilton Levy suggests a club for "yardbirds". "It will be the most exclusive club on the field", says he. fJ nOW' we know what "sweating out" real ly means. It happened in the Post Theatre the other night when one tan was missing-the one that blows with bla des. The detachment had a taste of "Life 'Without' Father".for several days. C. o. Lt. Bailey went to Savannah to cat ch some pointers in a three day course in Medical Supply. Coincidental was the arrival of our former c.o., Lt. Fogel from Texas with an additional bar He is to aseume the duties of Flight Surgeon. S/Sgt. Rudy Cherney has quietly and ably taken over the job of sergeantmajor. Only it's difficult to convince him that it is a break. He claims it is more of a sentence. We'll bet that no other outfit has a mail orderly like our Pvt. Remo, who is affectionately called He brings letters that Sgt. Matonak even SMELLS. (--and somettmes kisses). The constant swish of Happy Harry Terrell has been tempered by having help again. Cpl. Groover Walker is back in full of Field. the laboratory, and is chock gathered at Maxwell -Sgt. William Volk B "ORANGEMEN" est wishes and lots of lucK to the boys are leaving us. Now that the transfers are official the fellows have quit "sweating". This squadron has talent of every description, but the latest find is a strip tease artist. He is none other than Ed (Glamour Pants) Farrior Has anyone noticed hoK much weight S/Sgt. Jones has lost? We were told that he is heartbroken. Could it be that SHE got married. Wanteda Suggestions for a new for our column; also,what Congression al action must be taken to get ratings released in our outfit. Things we would like to seea Pvt.

Colonel Luper at this field. Having indirectly served under his command at Maxwell Field, the Band remembers him well, where, as Commandant of the Ca dets, he introduced the Point System" with excellent results.

Kolt who is anxiously awaiting special orders to attend the Quar termaster Officer's Candidate School. Good Luck, "Sarge". Pfo. Panasuk (the guy what fixes 'em) is leaving us to take a co U'rse in Dial Maintenance at a civilian school in Chicago. That is a dream situation. Who could think of anything more pleas ing to a soldier {Don't take "soldier" too seriously, Pany) than three months association with real honest-to-good-ness folks in a town such as Chicago? Potts, who is on furlough, is going to take the same course, and upon their return all complaints about the 'phone system should be directed at these two men. "Wit" Ostrenko returned from furlough single, and ten pounds heavier. The extra poundage was acquired via the milk shake-banana split route. I'm surprised that one with such an interest in strength and health would have anything to do with those two bodywrecking items. -Pfc. Wm. Hines T "THE CHAMPIONS" I he presence of Cpl. Ray Gross is made yery conspicuous by his absence from the QM office. He is convales cing in the hospital. Y'all hurry back, Ray, y'heah? Speaking of recoveries, devotees of the USO Club's activities are pleased to see that Mrs. Ouida Lee is back on the job after her recent illness. We missed the genial hostess. Welcome back to Captain Ncwle, our c.o., who has been on leave visiting the folks back in New York. Incidentally, our former C .o. answers to "Cap tain" Samuels, nowcongratulations& Pvt. Johnny Sopher likes his work so well that he didn't leave until six o'clock one day P.S. He overslept. Has anyone counted the number of mes Pvt.

We wish them the best of luck and we're sure that they'll continue to do their best no matter where they go. Congratula tiona to the fellows who re-ceived promotions this past month. -Pfc. Albert Snead l "HEADQUARTERS' HEADLINES" ast week you read about Sgt. Wilton Hodges being promoted to the rank of technical sergeant, well, he went one better on us, and is now proudly wearing the trio" chevrons of a master sergeant. The forever smiling Simmons and John our chief supply sergeant were upped to the tech ranks And our new acting first sergeant, George Bukota is "sweating". We wonder why??? The entire squadron will be well rewarded by the sight when our newly planted grass turns green.
