NO ATHEISTS IN FOX HOLES Did you read that unforgettable story of Bataan's last days by Lieut. Col. Warre n J. Clear, u.s.A.? He's the man who, by federal order, rescued Corregidor's most archives and stacks of gold, fleeing by night in a submarine at the risk of his own life leaving behind him doomed men without hope, yet keep ing the faith even as death neared by the minute. It's both gallant and horrible beyond all that story. they do it? What sustained those starved, wracked bodies, many of them they waited? Yet there they stayed, disdaining all chance of escape, laughing as they waited. How did dying as actually There's one paragr,aph in Lieut. Col. Warren Clear's recital that seems to explain it all. He said, and we make the excerpt from the Reader's Digests "In this fighting, many a soldier came to realize that self-confidence alone was not enoughtosustain the human spirit. I remember jumping into a hole during a particularly heavy bombing attack. A sergeant crouched lower to make room for me. Then all hell broke loose and I wasn't surprised to find myself p 'raying out loud. I heard the sergeant praying, too. When the attack was over, I saids "Sergeant, I noticed you were praying." "Yes sir," he answered, without batting an eye, "there are no atheists in fox holes "No atheists in fox holes." Sometimes, these days, sneering letters come, asking me why I believed there is something greater than human greed and cruelty in t,bis conflict, something that will emerge victoriously iri the end, no matter what prioe we pay in suffering or sacrifice. Well, there's the answer. "There are no atheists in fox holesl" SfRmAY A.M. --Mass ... Chaplain Finnerty 9:00 A. M.--Protestant Sunda y School 10:00 A.M. --Morning Worship ....

It has everything any soldier could ask for-coverage, style and humor, with a capital "H"l The latest feature of this &Well tale teller is a department called "Post Exchan ge." "YANK" wants material from Joe Yard bird. "Post Exchange"will publish a smattering of everything-humor, art, poetry, photographs, news. Anything goes whichthe editor, ffc. Byron B. Evans, fancies, material from camp newspapers included. To get his name in "YANK", a soldier need not be famous. Editor Evans says it's the idea that counts. To top it off, something new in rejection slips will be offered by "Post Exchange". As the editor puts it, "If no spot can be found for a soldier's contribution, hewins anyway. In the first mail, he'll receive the most handsome rej ection slip ever sent out by any heartless publication, suitable for pasting up be sica that picture of Jane Russell." Contributions should be e .dcfressed to "Post Exchange,'' c/o !'YANK", 205 E. 42nd st., New York City, N.Y. "YANK's" is one PX which never closes for inventoryl O f course there is a motive behind our requ est that everybody get busy and send "Post Exchange" some of your stuff, -you see, we've got a nice blank space next to our picture of Jane Russell and we'll gle.d ly. make a trade with the first Tyndall man w h o receives one of those handsome rejection slips-his picture gets in the "TAR GET" if he gives us his 11slip111 We were kind of raked over the coals by Captain Hinchman, Post Mess Officer, this week. The Captain claimed that some of our recent remarks concerning the mess halls and the food were unjust and uncalled for. Whatever these remarks were, they were in no way intended to be personal, and we hope that the Captain did not take them as such. However, we decided to look into the mess situation from a yardbird's point of view and find out whether or not our allusions were justified. Of the fifty soldiers that we questioned,; half said that the quality of the food had improved. All fift y agreed that there was 100% improvement in the cleanliness and .service. Upon t h e invitation of Lt. A. c. Miller, we inspected !Jess Hall No. 1 behind the scenes. W e left there convinced that every possibl e effort was being made to keep the trays, silverware, dishes, floors and mess hall in genere.l, spotlessly clean. As for the quality of the food, if it seems to fall below par occasionally, we've got to realize that the mess officers can not be held to blame, as foodstuffs and their transportation present a serious problem in this section of the country. When told about complaints bylate comers of finding substitutes for the original fare, Lt. Mille r admitted that sudden changes in perso nnel and the failure of the men to eat i n their assigned mess halls made it difficult to j u dg e closely and correctly. So, gripe if you v,rant to, men, but remember the.t the mess officers are doing their bes t at a thankless task, and keep in mind that thousands of our boys are wishing they had a mess h a l l to gripe aboutl


THE RUGGED "69111" Song To Tyndall Field Oh, Tyndall Field vast and great, You are our home in this gran d old State. I love your buildings, noble, sublime, That stand the weather and w ear of time. I love to live beside the sea And have the breezes bring to me A message from the great unknownWhere Crusoe dwe t o n his i sle, alone.

Oh happy, golden, Tyndall Land, Stretch out thy cheerful hand-From far and near draw to thee All airmen who would happy be--That here may dwell, by God's own grace, The stalwart men of freedom's race.

If there is one man on t he Field who is in love with his work, it 1 s Sergeant Boyes. He lives and breathes "Aircraft Recognition''. In fact, if you ever want to talk to him about any-thing, you can be sure that the conversation is going to end up with Ralph tel ling you about the relative merits of the Jap Zero and the Republic's new P-47. If Ralph could have his way, he would probably line the ceilings of all the barracks on the Field with silhouettes of Allied and enemy aircraft. BROWNIES' REPORTER GREETS NEW RECRUITS WITH ADVICE WHICH ALL SHOULD FOLLOW To you new men we say ''Welcome111 You have finally arrived at your "permanent" station, your new home. Most of you fellows wonder why you were sent here, and now that you're here, what you are going to do. B,y now you have no doubt learned that Tyndall Field is a Gunnery School. Each squadron on the Field has a definite duty to perform to keep the school running as smoothly as possible. This squadron has been assigned ten planes and it is our primary function to see that these planes are constantly serviced and kept in the best condition possible. Along with this work there is the very important task of keeping the machine-guns on these planes in perfect order. Keeping these planes flying is a big job, and this squadron has a swell record in this category. It is up to you new men to help us maintain this record. In time most of you fellows will be given an opportunity to work on the "line", either as a mechanic or as an armorer. This in itself is a break, for there are thousands of fellows who would give plenty to have such an opportunity, so don't muff it. All we ask is that you pitch in and do a good job, and we'll help you along wherever we can. There i s one thing that doesn't go i n the Army Air Forces, and that is a "mistake". When dealing with planes, we are dealing the lives of men who will fly in those planes, and there is only one way of doing things-the right wayl Working around planes is darn interesting. Give it everything you've got, and you can't help doing a good job. As for our squadron, we're one big hap PY family, and we want you to feel as tho you're one of us. Just remember that we are all working for one cause and that the better we work together, the better job we're going to do. -Pfc. J. Freeman

Neil Pooaer) A pair of twin brothers tram Weat Virginia, Emory and Ernest Leeson, atole the show last Thursday night in one of the best of the weekly tight cards to be presented at Tyndall Field by the A. & R. Office. They were both wi l l i ng fighter and in addition they scrapped with a comic zeal which had the crowd in stitches. Emory, who weighed lSO lba., took a judges' decision over his brother, who tipped the soales at 145. Othe r results werea PYt. larl Fiebelkon et Wisconsin, 160 lbs. vs. Sgt. Sam Oakley 162 lba., of Tennessee. A well-earned decision was awarded PYt. Fiebelkon. Earl Fynum of New Jersey and Edward Kovalchik of Pennsylvania, both 145 pounders, slugged it out in fine fashion until the middle of the second round. Then Fynum suffered a nose injury and the referee gave the tight to the blonde Pennsylvanian on a T.I.O. Arthur Kerber, of Ohio, who had the advantage of both reach and seven lbs. of weight, jabbed out an easy decision over Royal Dutch Navy Representative Douwesdekker of Holland, who weighed 130 lba. Tommy Seaman of Java, 1S7 lbs., and Frank Granese, New York, 145 lbs., fought a dull draw. Two PX boys, BCNa ton Parrish 110 lbs., and Robert St.v ens, 150 lbs., asked to don the Stevena won by a T.I.O. in the first.
