"TtliDALL TALEB'1' TYPHOOB" OPEBS TUESDAY This Tuesday night will mark the be ginning of a weekly series of talent shows that will eventually give every man on the field who possesses any special entertainment ability to "show his stuff". The purpose of the "Talent Typhoon" is to bring the men on the Field together so that they may enjoy themselves in a strictly "GI" fashion. The shaw will be held at the "Rec" Ball at 7aSO P.M. Sgt. of '42-41, nipt club entertainer, will "Emcee" the dopn or so special feature a scheduled tor the evening. CER!JIOIJIES OF CLASS '42-40 TO BE BEARD OVER "GENE AU!RY" PROGRAM ON OCT. 4JH. I Tyndall Field will really be on the air next Sunday. The one hundred and fifteen stations of the Columbia Broadcasting Systemwill carry the graduation ceremonies of Gunnery Class '42" 40 as a part of the "Sgt. Gene Autry" Program. In addition to being heard over C.B.S., the program will also be short-waved to foreign lands where American soldiers are stationed. Although the program -will not be picked up on the national hook-up until Sa30 P.M. on Sunday, Panama City's WDLP is planning to broadcast the preliminary ceremonies which include a parade bythe graduating class from the Armory to the u.s.o. Building. The march will be reviewed by Colonel Max well and other dignitaries from a box in front of the Ritz Theatre. Due to the limited seating capacity of the u.s.o. Building, where the pro gram will be broadcast, admission to the exercises will be by invitation only A loud speaker system and extra benches will be installed at the waterfront :.,plrk to accommodate the expected overflow of spectators. Music by the Tyndall Field Band, short addresses by the officers of the graduating gunnery class and several other special features will comprise the radio presentation. Plans and arrangements for this momentous occasion are being handled by Captain Ammon McClellan, himself a member or the graduating class, and Lt. Walter J. McKinsey. Corporals Robert Paquin and Dale Barton are preparing-the script and I

PRAYER OF A SOLDIER IN FRANCE My shoulders ache beneath my pack; (Lie easier, Cross, upon His back.) I march with feet that burn and smart; (Tread, Holy Feet, upon my heart.) Men shout at me that may not speak; (They scourged Thy back and smote Thy cheek.) I may not lift a hand to clear My eyes of salty drops that sear. (Then shall my guilty soul forget Thy agony 'or Bloody Sweat?) Lord, Thou didst suffer more for me Than all the hosts of land and sea. So let me render back again This millionth of Thy gift. Amen Joyce Kilmer "There has never been anything exactly like this in the history of the world. The conqueror wants his conquered people to think like him, not merely act as he desires. More than that, they must repudiate their past. With an almost diabol ical knowledge or human psychology, he has actually appealed to the most fundamental things in human nature-the love of order and the love of security. He has promised them both---on condition that they accept them willingly from his hands. Or else---of course dare not let Fascism conquer us from within, all the time that we are getting ready to beat down its physical arms on the field of battle. The next world peace conference will take place in the city of ffashington, D. c. It will be presided over either by Adolf Hitler or by the President of the United States. Which it shall be determined by who wins the revolution more than by who wins the mere war. We must not forget that the revolution is taking place in people's minds and wills." !/n 11zem@riam SGT.

William Castle Pfc. Silas G. Upchurch Pvt. Everett Tackett TOPICS We bow our heads in Shame. The sec ond fatal accident in the histor,y ot the Field occurred this week, and, &I if this were not enough, a group ot Tyndall men took it upon themselve1 to add insult to the tragedy. Somewhere on the Field there are ten or fifteen men who no doubt, are quite proud of themselves. They were ver,y They made up a parody on the song, "Show Me The Way To Go Home". We would like to print that parody, word for word, but we haven't got the guts -we haven't got the guts that those men had, who, as they passed the bar racks of the Royal Netherlands Detach ment the other night, lustily sang their parody. To Lt. C .L. de Vries and to the men under his command, Colonel llaxwell ex tends his deepest regrets for an act beyond apology. As soldiers, we have been betrayed from within our ranks. As Americans, we have been disgraced. The Army Emergency Relief Fund was $25.00 richer this week. Donations from two Tyndall Officers, one for $10 and the other for $15 made up the to tal. Captain Ammon McClellan, who authored the story "The Gunner's the Man1" in this month's u. s. Air Servi-+.n n check that was forwarded from that magazine. The tl5 contribution was received trom Lt. C.L. de Vries of the Royal Netherlands Detacpaent. Several months ago, Lt. de Vries attended a party at a local hotel. During the course of the evening, someone out an irreplaceable insignia from his cap, presumably it was a souvenir hunter who didn't know where souvenir hunting ended and vandalism began. In the hopes that the valuable emblem would be returned, Lt. de Vries posted a reward of tl5.00 and "no questions asked". Two months have passed without any word concerning the insignia, so on Monday, the Lieutenant phoned this office, which was holding'the reward, and asked that the money be turned over to the A.E.R. U, Kynhur We don't suspect any ulterior motive behind the innovation of having the Field Band play at the evening meals, but we hope that one is not an excuse tor the o"t;her. However, the band can well stand on its own merits. In tact, it's high time we tossed our musical organization a few well earned bou quets. The performances by the "Rhythm Pilots" on the Friday night radio pro Q"rama itre a treat or the ears.

' "HEADQUARTERS HEADLINES" t's been a week o f goodbyes for us. First of all, we lost a member of our royal family when M/Sgt Wilton Hodges left ua for OCS North Dakota. His presence will be missed, but we know that he has the ability to make a good officer and has something definite to contribute. to his country's war effort, so we wish him the best of luck and a brisk salute to the new officer candidate. As for the other "goodbyes", well, we're saying 'em to the rest of the men on the field. The time has come when this group must l e ave this Post and move on elsewhere to write another chapter in the history of the AAF It's been a long road t ogether, guys, and it's been swell, but n o w duty calls and it's a farewell salute to all of you, from Colonel Maxwell down to the lowest Private--"So long -Sgt.

JACK SNODDY: It probably won't be "Pfc." much longer, for Jack is at present going through Tyndall's Gunnery Course for the third time, and his diploma this time coupled with the fact that he has attended the Armorer's school at Lowry Field, Colorado, will probably bring him several more stripes. Jack's claim to fame is that back in 1936 he spent several months as a vocalist with Jan Garber's band, and has been exercising his vocals ever since. As an instructor of Ballistics at the Gunnery School, Jack confines his crooning to the classrooms, using bullets instead of ballads.

FIGHTING GREEK" THRILLS FIGHT FANS AS HE SCORES T.J:.O. IN 1ST BOUT (By Pfc. Wm. Pratt) Before a crowd of some one thousand Tyndall men, the weekly boxing card was held last Thursday at the Field Are na$ The first fight brought together two 145 pounders, D.J. Wissner of and Pvt. George Triantafillas, ( "The Fighting Greek") o f Wash., D.C. At the sound of the bell, the "Greek rushed to his opponent and let loose with a volley of lefts and rights that had the Brooklyn boy staggering before the 1st round was over. He also won the 2nd round and finally, after two minutes of the 3rd round had passed, he exploded a right cross on the chin that f in ished off Wissner. The second contest went to Pat O' Brien, for.mer stabfemate of Bill y Conn and not to be confused with the cinema star. O'Brien, of Pittsburgh, at 155 pounds, displayed some fancy footwork and proved he had had gloves on before for reasons other than to keep his. hands warm. His victim was J.t. !liyo, 165 lbs., from Roebling N.J. O'Brien is scheduled to meet Lt. Don Williams in the bouts tonite at P.c. sponsored by the American Legion. Lt. Williams is a former Univers.ity of Florida star. Lee Shirley, 130 lbs.,from Evansvil le, Ind., found himself without an opponent and asked tor a volunteer. For tunately for the fans present, "4ce" Barrette, Tyndall's "Mike Jacobs":was ready with a replacement from his stable ot fighters and Tommie Se eman, or Java, proceeded to show Shirley a few things about boxing. !twas agreed that "Ace" Barrette "handled" his man very w ell.
