However, Billy's brain is every bit as sharp as the wit he has often shown in his week ly column. As Tyndall's most popular character, "The Yardbird" has amused the readers of his column tor the past seven months through twenty-seven issues or the "TARGET". During this time he watched his column become the leading feature of the paper and saw nUJUroua imi.ta tiona of his brainchild in other camp periodicals. One of the most amusing that occured during association with the "TARGET" happened during the early days ot )(arch, when excerpts from hi's column were used in a small town nel'(spaper. The editor did not credit "Gud Buddy" for the material and he immediately dispatched this ejitor a scathing letter, signing it as Yardbird, I!" I In the following issue or that newspaper appeared humble apol ogies and further "Yard}:)ird" witticisms signed, "The Yardbird, #1". Jl.ore pictures and facta about Billy will appear in next week's issue.


The following are excerpts from a letter from Lt. Henry G. Lee to his mother and dad and sister while on duty with Lt. Gen. Jonathan M. Wainright, dated Feb. 12, l942a "I am proud to be a pa1t or the fight that is being made here and would not, even if it were possible, leave here until it is over and we have won, as we inevitably will. By "we" I mean my country in general. Bat a an may fall, but the eventual outcome or the war is fore-ordained." "I have seen some horrible things happen and have had my share or narrow escapes. but I have also seen some wonderful acts of courage, self-sacrifice and loyalty. At last I have found what I have searched for all my causeand a job in which I can lose myself completely and to which I can give every ounce or my strength and my mind." "And I have mentally and spiritually conquered my fear or death. Pure animal terror---(a protective emotion cannot be entirely subdued by the mentality but it can, and has been controlled.'' "My prayer each night is that God will send you, who are suffering so much more than I am, His strength and peace. During the first days or war I also prayed for personal protection from physical harm but now that I may be given. strength to bear whatever I must bear and do so that those men under .me will have every reasonable chance." "Life and my family have been very good to me and have givenme everything! have ever really wanted, and should anything happen to me here, .it will not be like closing a book in the middle as it would have been had I been killed in the first few days or the war. For in the last two months I have done a life-time or living and have been a part or one or the most unslefish, coQperative efforts that has ever been made by_any group or individuals." &miD AI 8:00 A.K. --Mass Chaplain Jinnerty 9:00 A.M. --Protestant Sunda7 School 10:00 A.M.

Intimate GllmQses SERGEAIIT JACK H. PARJ[S left for Fort lf;yera on llonday. Thie waa hia col'UDID. Origiaa ted by him, it has appeared in twenty-ons issues of the "TARGET". This apace ia purposely short, because volumes can be written about Jack Parka. Jack not only originated this column, but the "TARGET" itself was his brainchild, and it was he who thought up its very apropos name. Jack is not a soldier in the military sense of the word, but this would be a very sad place without a few men like him. The absence of his familiar figure,. with its warmth and humanness, is already great ly missed. He has left nothing but friends here at T,yndall Field, of which he was as much a part as is the P.X or Suwanee Road. No, he is not a military soldier, as Colonel Maxwell admitted when he told Jack that he had "the wQrst right hand salute of any man on the post"--and perhaps we are prejudiced, but anyone who knew Parks won't deny that we have bean privileged.

Pvts. Gus Johnson, Carroll J ames and Ed Kirschner, awaiting appointments as Aviation Cadets, have turned out a totnl of 65 model planes in their work shop next to the dispensary. These m odels are essential to the teaching of Aircraft Recognition in the Gunnery School. These men are due to leave the field shortly and experienced builders ore needed to take their place.

,. 7\. 66TH "STUFF" 1'ln old saying, "the grass grows greener on the other side of the fence", has been forcibly brought.home to the 66th. The spacious lawns of Headquart ers Service and the 66th have no fence dividing them (as yet). Sgt. Hinshaw's grass planting detail fired the imagination of Headquarters Squadron and soon they too had a detail out. A friendly spirit of rivalry sprang up, but we were happy and content knowing that our yard would theirs. Days pas sed however, and when the other side became greener, we were filled with apprehension. The story broke when Headquarters inadvertently reported in the "Target" last week that they had had grass pl anters outas early as 4:00 A.v., under cover of darkness, you might say. Our only comment is that it is a sad state of affairs when you have to get up in the middle of the night to uproot your neighbor's grass and transplant it on your side. One result of this horticultural ban ditry is that Private Roulo has now posted a 24 hour guard around the watermelons on the south side of his barracks. We're gladtosee Pfc. Weiss back and S/Sgt. Galloway looks much happiersince the young lady from GeorGia arrived in these parts. -Pvt. Thomas_Verry l A THE SIGNALlERS 1'1.t long last our Barracks Chief has a method of keeping the porch clean. It is a very simple contrivance, and furnishes amusement for the boys. A shuf fle board court has been painted on the porch floor and we have to keep the floor clean to enable the discs to slide. We also have a brand new football and other "toys" so necessary to keep the boys happy while on the post. Our thanks to M/Sgt. Dick Underwood of Finance, who made it possible for our Barracks to get some of this equipment. (This of course does not include the doghouse). w.u. Hines YOUR BESf BET T "WHITE FLASHES" he week-end found every man in the squadron strictly "on the beam"---and howl However, Monday was really blue, in two ways. A lot of our 'buddies left for Fort Myers and then the over blues are always. a little rugged. It seems as if Cupid is still taking its toll from the White Flashes. In fact, one could say that Cupid is taking the "flash" out of the "Flashes". Since love waits for no man, not even Adolph, best of luck to all individuals concerned. The big question here is, why can't the squadron technical inspectors be as nice as the ones in the Sub-Depot? -Sgt. M.E. Gibson Our large moved "CANARIES" squadron seems lonely now that a percentage of our best men have southward. We extend heartie1st congratulations to Cpls. Curtiss and Veazey on their recent acceptance to Officer's Candi date School at Camp Davis, North Carl olina. Our squadron "Romeo" has at last de cided to take the final step, so the rumor goes. When will it be, Harry? Could it be that Pfc. Waters Has fli nally run across sonething interesting in the 5 & 10 Stores? He went into town two nights in succession last week Pvt. Fishman is still determined to be a member of a "big time" band. He is now doing his best to learn how to blow a bugle. -Pre. Pete Hernandez W "BLUEBIRDS" ith Pvt.

Orders have been received which will send Sgt. Henry Barlow and Pvt. John Eadie on their way to Chanute Weath er Forecaster School in the near future. We'll miss the fire-eating zeal that these two men have put into their jobs at Tyndall. To fill the gap caused by these recent successes of the Detachment, three new arrivals have appeared at Tyndall from Valdosta, Ga. The new, and most welcome Rainmakers are Sgt. rlalter De Milly, Sgt. Lawrence MacDonald and Pfc. Elliott Wahlstrand. -Pvt. Jtorris Lasker 6 "HEADQUARTF:RS HEADLINES" roup Headquarters doesn't seem quite so morgue-like now that the personnel section has moved in. Has anyone ever thought of having a debating team on this post? There are a couple of fellows over here that would take top honors. They practice every night.
