SUNDAY AMERICA They would knock out MacArthur, And wipe out his men. They'd sign peac e in the White House, And they'd tell us when. They surprised at Pearl Harbor, And struck a hard blow They went to the P hilippines, And put on a s how. They would conquer the world And disfigure the maps. They would replace Old Glor y With the flag of the Japs. L ike small specks of vermin, All over a hen. They were spreading like wild fire, And suddenly t hens They found AMERICA, Had something to say. Ammunition and men Would be soo n on the way. The hearts of our Allies became filled with glee, When our stuff began rolling way over the sea, Guns by the ship load, airplanes and tanks, supplies by the train load---Then came the Yanks. War Stamps and Bondsall on the job, Behind every soldier, marine and gob. Yes, we'll sign peace in the White House, And the time will be--When MacArthur returns, Marching back with his menl Pfc.

Everett Tackett TOPICS In case you hear the phrase at the hospital area, don't dig down in your pocket and get ready to fade a "fiver", they're probably(?) only referring to the opening hours of Tyn dall's new dental clinic. Recently opened, the new tooth-pulling house is the first of the two brown shingled buildings. Captain Rigberg, head of the Field's dental staff, has announced that the move to new and larger quarters was made in order to properly handle the dental work required by the student gunners and the "permanent" personnel. The hours of 7a00 A.J4. to llaOO P.M. will be covered by two shifts of dental officers. An emergency clinic will be open on at 9a00 A.M. Pending written confirmation from Washington, Sunday, October 4th, ought to be a great day in Tyndall's history. Arrangements are being made to carry the graduating excercises of Gunnery Class '42-40 over a radio hook-up of one hundred and fifteen stations on that dayl The exact time that this special broadcast will go on the air and further details will be announced by the Public Relations Office in the future. Those responsible for the Gunnery School program here agree that the life of the student gunner is not a very easy one, and since this is so, we wonder why a little matter of pro viding cool drinking water for the men on the ranges couldn't be taken care of. As long as the effort is be ing made to provide a barrel of watez, why can't some method be devised for keeping that water cool? The proprietors of the new post dry cleaners called us up the other day to thank us for the "plug" we gave them last Saturday. They told us that one of their first customers must have been a member of the Guard Squadron, for the fellow came in with a khaki suit to be cleaned, in one hand, and a rifle in the other. The cleaners asked us if we wouldn't let it be known around the field that s show of arms wouldn't be necessary to insure good service. Chaplain Wester walked in on us just now and told us a story that's worth repeating. It seems that someone new to the field remarked to the Chaplain that every place he went he saw nothing but officers. The Chaplain replied, "You've never been to Chapell" Score a direct hit for the Chaplain

"SIGNALlERS" _;)ignal Finance aDd Weather were ushered out of their happy home last Sun day. It is a mystery as to who tailed to keep up the payments on the "Apart ment", but that cannot be undone now, and we all in different barracks. Men could be seen tor miles around staggering through the woods with beds, footlockers, barracks bags and copies of the "TARGET". We looked like a bunc h of refugees barely managing to stay ahead of the Panzer outfit at our rear. Our new "home" gives us a better view of the Gulf, but that is about all that can be said tor it. Reports from the hospital indicate that Mason is recuperating from his very nioely. Hurry back Mase, there is a pile of work to be done in our new barracks 1 By the way, I think we picked up a dog in the transaction. We have one hanging around.

"RAINMAKERS" VVhat with new personnel, new barracks and new station equipment, this would hardly be recognizable even to those who left us as short a time as two weeks ago. Our assets are high now, with a rich assortment of men who have had the gospel of our subject straight from the mouths of the saints a.t Chanut e Field, as well as a group who qualified in in-stationtraining at nearby Moody Field. The result is that you can now get any opinion you may want on weather becau s e there are so many views. Another result is that it has given some of us time to catch up on the fundamentals, so that eventually there will be even mor e men here who can bet each other that it is or isn't going to rain. Change of barracks sees us grouped with the Ordnance gang, and, tho it wi 11 take a couple of days for readjustment from the hectic days in which we lived with the snappy signalmen and the figuring financiers, we're already en the nearness of the beach, the atraggling"lawn in front of our new home and the lusty squeals of the clar inets end trumpets from the bandsmen across the way. The financiers and signalmen are in a nearby building and we expect to borrow a cup of sugar from them now and then. Sgt. Don de Kraker left last week for Nashville where he'll be the first o f our squadron to be an ordinary guy who wears a pair of silver wings." -Pvt. Morris Lasker C "RED BIRDS" ongratulations to M/Sgts. Frank Bilozur, D.I. Smith and Fred Fields on their new promotions.. Sgt. John "Dan dy" Hamil ton also can add on that other stripe after a long hard sweat. Flying Sergeants Kenneth Sullivan and a few of the others are strutting around like English counts with their newly raised Van Dykes. Some of the remaining sergeants are beginning to let their beards grow too. We all regret losing First Sergeant Kenneth Stitt who left us for OCS at Miami. Sgt. Stitt enlisted on January 1, 1932 in the u.s. Infantry. During his first hitch he was stationed at Shanghai at the time that the Japanese first began their aggression there. Between enlistments, the sergeant worked with the Chicago Steel Company as 1-tead expediter. We all wish him the best of luck and hope that after he gets his bars he'll be sent back here to receive our salutes. Del Ponte NAPIER FIELD SOLDIER BECOMES MR. "X" \VHEN HE MISSES OVERSEAS SHIPMENT One of the saddest stories in many a moon was released from Napier Field, Ala., last week A soldier left there for foreign service recently. He got to the embarkation point, where he flunked his physical and thereby missed the boat he was supposed to have sailed on. He missed the boat, BUT, his entire clothing issue and Army records made it. Without any records, he became the mysteri01ls Mr. "X" of the Army. He didn't know what to do the Army prob ably figures he's on the boat and seasick as hell. but he's just sick. Ev entually he wandered back to Napier, but they sent him back. Now the question is, is he AWOL, a deserter, lost or, can he go home and forget the whole thing??? "5-B" CLASSIFICATION DEFINED BY DALE MABRY FIELD OFFICER Major Claude B. Black, Personnel Officer at Dale Mabry Field, Tallahassee, received a letter advising him that his brother had been inducted into the service. The Major was inclined to believe that the Army needs men very desperately if they are summoni ng men in the "5-B" group. Whsn asked by an inquisitive as to the condition ofche men in the "6-B" class, the Major, surprised at the ignorance of the questioner, replied. "Bald-headed. Big bellied. Bi foculs, Bridge-work and Bunionst" That' I how "5-B" originated.

THOUGHTS OF AN AERIAL GUNNER ......... I'm just a lad who got fighting mad When the Axis got treating folks mean; So I fiGured IVm one To be handling a gun From the tail of a B-17. Th6n I wondered again at the strange ways of And the teachings of one Nazarene That men of good will Have no reason to kill From the tail of a B-17. But this method of killing was rtot of our willing, But a product of minds so obscene That the only solution Is their siddolution From the tail of a B-17. Oh, it's a far cry from the earth to the sky, Where the blue of the sea looks serene; And I sometimes wish I were sta.rti ng to fish From the tail of my B-17. But it doesn't take long to prove I was wrong For having such thoughts in my bean; For I'm soon spitting lead At a Jap Zero's head From the tail of my B-17. And r've heard it said that a gunner is dead In a minute or somewhere between; But the only death rattle I've heard is the battle In the tail of my B-17. A miscarriage of culture created a vulture From a wonderful flying machine; But I've heard men tell They'd fly straight thru hell In the tail of a B-17. And if it's my place to fall out of the race And fade somewhere back of the scene, I'd rather expire In the heavens or In the tail of my B-17. Corporal Fred R.

SERGEANT GREGORY KANGIN, one of the most outstanding tennis players of the u.s. in the past decade, is about to graduate from Tyndall's Gunnery School. The veteran net man was four times the national indoor tennis champion and from 1930-35 he was a top ranking member of our Davis Cup team. Also, in the 1932-34 and 35 campaigns, Man gin shared the National Indoor Doubles Crown. "Foot faults" and "love sets" are no doubt forgotten for the duration and the former net star has probably adapted his viscous serve to machine-guns and plans to serve nothing but "aces" at the enemy planes. muRSDAY NIGHT'S BOXING RESULTS 1.
