WERE YOU AT CHURCH LAST -SUNDAY? The worship of God is the first and last instinct of the soul of man. Two pictures move the heart more than all others, the picture a little child at its mothar'B knee, in an11rerto its mother's voice, lisping the name of God in worship, and the picture of the aged dying man, 1l'i th p.ll the experience of a long life be hind him, speaking the name of God in worship. In the beginning but also in the years between, suchaman's private duty trom which eve n God Himself cannot excuse him. We do worship Godl In the quiet of our rooml As we soar through the Heavens l tn a private moment of prayer in the Chapell In the great Cathedrall In the time of stern needl But so often alone. There is a need also for corporate worship. We are members of families, we have membership in the domestic society of the family circle, in the civic society of the nation, of the whole human race. There is need for common worship. In unity there is strength, especially in time of great crisis. Hundreds of voices raised together in prayer are powerful. And we in a time of crisis. An outstanding Christian leader of our time has saida "The present century has encountered notable disasters. The very times in which we live are warning us to seek remedies there where they alone are to be found, namely by reestablishing in the family circle and throughout the whole range of human society the doctrines and practices of Christian Religion." Our daily grind of work, the danger of discouragement, the pressure of temptation make it necessary that our souls be renewed by some Power of ourselves, and greater than ourselves, a Power that is above all circumstances and Divine, by God HiJnself. S11Dday is given to us as an important help in our spiritual life. Six days of the week may be called "man's days" tor they are to caring tor man's temporal affairs; at least one should be for the affairs ot eternity "An optimist is one who figures that when his shoes wear out he will be back on his feet."

We doubt if ever in his former theatrical days, or Thomas B. Carnahan received such an ovation as hewas accorded upon "a:rrivinc at Tyndall Field last Tuesday A.M.

w. "THE RUGGED 69TH" ell, Wednesday was the day the Eagle smiled, and Thursday was the day quite a few of the boys cried. The 69th was very well represented in the ring this past week by none other than Pvt. Festus Shellmutt an ex-finalist in the New York Golden Gloves. 'The big smiles and cigars are from the boy s who added new chevrons to their sleeves. Pvt. Dictefano, the Squadron carpenter, is the one who made most of the swell furniture that we have in our day room. For your information he is known as the great Casanova from the west side of New York. Pvt. Joe Granata is leaving on furlough he says to see his Mom???? Pfc. M. Gould our able correspondent is off on one of those three day passes, some say she is very nice looking? We all wonder why Cpl. Kintner has sworn -off going to town during the week? (Could it be Baby?) We wish to man for. his column. thank an ex 69er, Sgt. Fleshable assistance with this -Pfc. Mo Gould ..,. "RED BIRDS" I he best of luck to all the boys on their recent promotions. It is a strange thing how most of the boys had their stripes so handy. Pvt. Francis Casey has sent for every train and bus schedule in the South, so that he won't lose a minute getting home. He is so nervous waiting thathe can't sit still a minute. At one time he was known to be able to sit and sleep Have you tried your O.D's lately, Francia? After months of being without a repre sentative for the boxing matches, we have finally turned. up with the Leeson twins, who to the boys in 348 look to be tops. We hope to see them show again real soon. We are hoping for a speedy recovery of Pvts. Weaver Chrabot, Hicks, Jones, aDd Krogler wbo are oonT&lescing in the hospital. It was nice, and quite a surprise to see and hear the Tyndall Field Band in our Kess Hall the other .Vening. We understand that-thil will be a weekly session and other Kess Halls on the field will have the pleasure of eat their meals to strains of sweet mu.aio. Pfc. Via.cent Del Ponte .,. "BLACKBIRDS" I he reason that lst Sgt. Tayloru feeling gay these days is that he has just returned from, shall we say, a short vacation? Those lip imprints on his uni.f.'orm were not painted on. There is no pool table on the field that sees as much service as the one we have. Someday someone is going to suggest that a game of pool be played for a change. You all must know Sgt. Goodson by now. He is the lad who always has a lump in his jaw. The day after pay day, the Sgt. strolled into the day room with no less than 12 dozen packages of the well known brand of Beech Nut chewing tobacco. Good chewing to you, Sergeant. For the first five days of the month, Sgts. Noble, Clausen and Blackenshot really keep the P.c. cabbies busy, riding to and from town. The next ten days will find them using the Panama City Bus Line. As for the last fifteen days of the month, you can see them at the )(.p. gate, wait ing for a G. I truck to take them to town. We should be able to get some mail now that K.O. Pvt. Mattock has married the chief source of his former distraction What's holding up the organization of a touch-tackle football league amongst the squadrons? Sgt. Tony Statile '1'YBDALL HOPBP'ULS lfC. HAVE "WWSHillG BRIDGE" If Will Make It So", the men of Tyndall Field and their T,yndallettes should be "in" for their best Christmas yet. Captain Charles Brunner, Tynd&ll's landscaping supervisor, is the man to thank when your wishes come true, for the Captain had a bridge to build several weeks ago and of building an ordinary bridge, he thought up the novel idea of constructing a "wishing" bridge. This newly built structure is part of the passageway between the Finance Building and Post Headquarters. A you cross the bridge you will see an box with a narrow opening at the top. To make your wish "come true", you drop a coin through the opening and should the coin ring the bell that has been placed at the bottom of the box, your wish haa a better than even chance of becoming a reality. You may continue dropping ooins until you hit the_ bell the poorer your marks manship, the greater the contribution to the Army Emergency Relifl" Fundl

L "ORDNOTES" t. Parsons is hospitalized, but is re ported aa gaining and Pvt. Smith is out of the hospital and has joined the company. The little fellow with the bow and arrow is around again. T/4 Manly Smith was last Saturday evening and S/ Sgt. is waiting for the little lady to come to Panama City. When is the date Sgt. Tucker? T/4 Hoey in New York at school is an even bet to come baok happily married. T/Sgt. Burnett has left for an armam-. ent school. We're thinking he might show the teacher a few things. Sgt. Mathis bet on the Yanks (and I mean betl)there ain't no justice, eh, Sgt? The Ordnance was deserted over the week end, with school, convoys, passes, and the detachment to Apalachicola leaving. T/5 and Mrs. Davis reported a fine time in but his jeep was rather lonely. If anyone hears a humorous remark, give it to your reporter. What's funnyto one is. fuuny to another. This week Cpl. Pondo "when will the war end?" Anyon e who can answer these questions,?? just tear off the top or his 1st Sgt. and mail with the answers. First prize will be a free meal at #.2 Mess Hall. -s/sgt. Kenneth L. Witham 5 A.A.F BAND i Moye goes forth this week-end to win the Invitation Golf Tournament, here's wishing you luck Si and bring back that trophy for Tyndall Field. There's a lot of competition in the Band right now due to the baseball games between the Pfe's and the Non-Coms. Yes terday was the opening game, and don't look now folks, but the Pte's won by one run. but let's wait, folka, till the end ofthe series and see what the reaulta will be. Last w.ek-end we participated in the Graduation Exei:"cises, but let s hope in the future that these programs will be thoroughly ironed out, and very carefully prepared before broadcasting time. The Dance Orcheatr& worked hard tor ten days on various numbers and only 16 ot Air Corps song were used. (News FlashlS/Sgt. Stoner just 'phoned us the news that Cpls. Rubin \ and Mosur were promoted to Sergeant, and that Pfc's Barnes and Morton made Corporal). -Cpl. Wm. J. Higbee P '"FINANCE FANFARE" vt. Harold had an interesting hobby in civilian life. He was a member of his local draft board up in Minneapolis. Ten new recruits have come to learn the intricacies of dishing out the shekels. and simoleonsfive from Colorado Springs and five from St. Louis. The other mountaineers are easy to spot. All had one leg shorter than the other from continuous walking on uneven ground. The five St. Lewisites were all glued to the radio this Sunday, except Pvt. Eddie Scalett who slept all through the game. Eddie is a St. Louis Brawn fan. Our probably has the best day room of any Finance Detachment of its size in the United States, thanks to the: good officers of our c.o. and his wife, Lt. and Mrs. Emory M. Shofner. -Pre.

Both should go over big with the gals. Every so otten w.e a.re going to reserve a little space in this column for some ot. the great lovers in our Squadron. Th1$ week we are wondering whether S,gt. Gegyo has given up the girls. in Morgantown, w. Va. and Washington, D.C. for one ot our pretty local belles. We welcome the ten new sergeants who have just been graduated &om the Gunnery School, and will become instructors here. We are glad to have Pvt. Kamarchuk, Pvt. Kochut and .Cpl.

"SIGNALlERS" -are in order for Sgt. Foster, who recently made Staff, and Cpl. Sansberry who was promoted tQ _Sgt. These men are two of the.old standbys of the "856TH"; They have been here as long as the outfit, and certainly deserve the raise in stripes. We have ti ve new men who were transferred here from Maxwell Field. Master Sergeant Blackmon, Cpl. Morse, Pvt. Drake Pvt. Simma, and Pvt. Cannon. We welcome you to Tyndall Field, and hope you enjoy your stay here. Sgt. Blackmon is taking over the responsibilities of wire chief at Tyndall, and certainly will be kept plenty busy. The linem$n have had another unhappy week_due to the carelessness of men digging around the post. They have an unprintable phrase to express their opinion of those who carelessly cut the Submarine Cable, and put phones out of order. Tho it is unprintable, it is very apropos. After all, the boys do have to stay out all night, as does Capt. Thorpe, to repair damage done as a result of carelessness, and they think pretty strongly about the situation. -Cpl. William M. Hines R "THE OLD TIMERS" tings came out in a deluge Monday, but you can still call me Pvt. "The Mad Russian" is giving bunk making lessons, hours, 2 to 6 in the morning. Sgt. "Big Feeling" Davis is walking with a chip on his shoulder lately, he admits he used to box oranges back home. Corporal, "Call Me Astaire", Bogar was seen at the u.s.a. cutting a rug. Some one told me to ask Corporal Dugan when he was coming in for another landing? Staff Sergeant Desjardins recited this poem to us, author unknown. He kissed her on her Ruby lips, T'was just a harmless frolic, But tho he only kissed her once, He died, of Painters Colic. -Pvt. Ed Strong "THE GUARDIANS" heartiest congratulations to Lt. Le Force for having aquired that extra silver bar for his captaincy. Well, we lost some of our boys. Some for detached service and some bound for the hills of Tennessee. We'll miss all of them and wish them the best of luck. One of the "Gun Shop" boys is singing the very popular song nowadays, "She Wore a Pair of Riding Pants". Cpl. Bob Hyde claim& to be a crooner, he used to sing with a hillbilly band back hcrme. Over here we call him, "the yee-o Laydeeeeeeee Kid". Pfc. Diaz has written a song"and wants some member of the A.A.F. Band to write the melody. The prevalent question around barrack #305, is Summa Lee?" Amplo has reduced at least 40 pounds since his induction. Stranger than fiction The M.P.'s in Tampa went to Cpl. J. Leto's house and told his folks that their son was A.w.o.L. and that they were looking for him. The M.P.'s faces turned scarlet when they wel"'e told that, "Tyndall Field, Leto" was in camp and that another Leto with the same first name lived a block away.---"Tyndall Leto" claims that he is no relation of "A. W.O.L. Leto". Buy Bonds to smash Bunda. -Gpl. Sam Marotta A "BROWNIES" t long last the promotion list finally was posted. The list is so long that it will be impossible to list each and every name. Congratulations to the lucky gang may they wear their stripes with pride. Good luck to Pfc. Johnson who has taken over the mail orderly job from yours truly Here's hoping that the well known M.O.'s of, "Have I Got Any Mail?" will not eventually send him to section eight. Having had the job myself, I know well what is in store for him. Who in the Squadron is becoming known all over Panama City as "New Joisey?" He also plays a mean pair of spoons. A 11 ttle late but nevertheless appreciated by all of us was the swell job Pvt. Ackerman did on covering our pool table. Let's see if we can t keep it in good shape. After all you paid for it. We welcome back from Ih s. at Chanute Field, s/sgt. Hash and Sgt. D.L. Smith. Quite a change in the place since you left1 Eh, guys? What ever.did happen to that coke machine idea for the day room? We understand that the way to get a ping pong table is to ask the Recreation Hall for one. -Cpl; J. J. Freeman

No matter now many times you've heard the phrase"quiet and unassurnint;" are the only words we can use to describe CORPORAL GEORGE NEITZERT. The Corporal is a native o f Syracuse. Uissouri. and here at Tyndall Field. he is an expert laboratory technician with the Post Pho tographic Depa rtrr.ent. Geor&e's skill is by no means limited to the field of photography, however. for he is quite a student of nn.tsic and is a most able performer with the flute. lie has bean playing the flute for the past ten years, having studied that instrument for six years at the Juilliard School of Musi c in New York, with Georges Barrera. As a flute player, George has made two Victor Red Seal Hecordings and has appeared with such notable musicians as Albert Spaulding and Alexander Siloti. When asked how come he decided to take up flute playing, George replied that he did it because his brother dared him to. Tha t was over ten years ago, and his brother hasn't written to him yetl PHOTO STAFF NON-COMS GIVE NOVEL PARTY Without a doubt. one of the most unusual parties ever given will take place tonite at a local tavern when the seven newly promoted Non-Coms of the Post Photo Staff play host to the remaining seven ''yardbird" members of the staff. Lt. Joseph Dic kerman will be the guest o f honor at the affair, the expense of which will be borne by: S/Sgti. Wm. Castle. John Meissner and John Mitchell; Sgts. John Bauer and c. Campbell; and Cpls. Si Upchurch and Ge?rge Neitzert. MACY'S, ARMY AND NAVY. AID G. I'S. WITH THEIR CSRISTMAS PROBLEMS As Christmas dravs near, there are two major questions which are going to stump you fellows. The first is, what and how, am I coing to send my folks and friends as presents? The second is,what can I suggest that they s e nd me? These two questions are not the easiest in the world t c answer, but we believe the following wi 11 be very helpful, The world's largest store, in New York, seems to have solved our first problem This store has set up, for the convience of our Armed Forces, a Gift Center, which is headed by Eetty l iason. All you have to do is write to her' at Yacy Is, Herald square' new York. TP-11 her to whor.1 you wish to send a present. If you like, cive her a suggestion .cs to what y ou wish to send. Tell her how much you want to spend and enclose a check or money order for that amount. She 111 select a g ift, have it wre .pped, if you so desire, and ship it in due time for arrival by Christmas. She will also enclcse a card. What's more, Hiss Mason, will drop you a note and tell you what she has selected,so t hat when your Girl'' writes to thank you for "the.t 'perfectly beautiful bag you sent'1--you won 1t b e too surprised. As to the second question "V{hat can they send me?"-Folks on the "outside" e .re not aware of the close quarters and space we have to keep our cloth and sundry items. To give them an idea of what we could use, the Army and Navy hn.ve approved a list of gift suggestions for the men in the service. You will notice non e of the items are of a large and bulky nature. Why not. cut it out so when the folks do ask what you want, you will have a Cigarettes Cigarette Li ghter Pipe Tobacco Pocket Bible c;ood Pen & Pencil Stationery Wrjtine; Ki t Regulation Socks Handkerchiefs Flashlight Playing Cards Leather Wallet Shoe Brush & Polish Nail File & Scissor Travel Kit Razor .!3lades Shaving Cream Shaving Lotion Dentifrice Toothbrush Hair Tonic Foot Products Metal Mirror Clothes Brush Portable Radio Pocket Knife Candy & Gum Sewin g Kit Wrist Watch

A NOTES ON A f)I\OA DCASTIt seemed to us that the spirit of t he graduating gunners was more like that of a college football team that was preparing to tackle it's most hated tradition al rivals, than that o f a group of m en in a military organization. We don't make this observation in the respect that "spirit" and "teamwork" are missing in but usually the "spirit" among men in an A.rmy is more of a silent and grim determination, rather than bouy ant and expressive. Perhaps the boys in '42-40 felt this way because they knew that this might be their last celebration for some time to come a nd they were going to do the thing right. Anyone who worked with these boys b eu fore the broadcast will tell you that their enthusiasm was contagious. .Their instructors, their officers, in fact, everyone o n the Fisld, can feel well F proud that they had a han d in graduating these men. As the day of the broadcast drew near, we wondered how many ofthe listeners .vould ever give a though t to the effort that was put into the forty minutes of actual broadcast time. To us, one of the Moat remarkable things about the entire : program was the complete cooperation of every man who was aske d to help in the planning and preparations. We arrived at UoS.Oe on Sunday at P.M. and f ound Tollllm,Y Oliver and S gt. Saul Samiof putting up t h a final decora tions in the auditorium, The u.s.o.

Since August 1st the Army has been experimenting with this plan at Fort Bragg, N.C. and finally concluded that the cash basis plan would be easier for everyone concerned. Squadron and Company collection sheets which have been a headache to Commanding Officers and their Squadron clerks will be cut to a m inimum. Outside the continental limits of the United States the decision of extending credit will be up to the Comm anding Officers. In addition to the military advantages derived from this plan, it is designed to. further the President's plan for reduction of credit buying.
