Vol. 1 No. 40 Army Ai r Forc. e s Gunnery School, Tyndall F ield, Fla., Oct. 31, 1942 UNI TS BRING IN OVER 250 RECRUITS I Congratulations are in order tor T,yndall's former ace "gossiper", DEWEY A H. GOSSETT, who has just received his commission as a 2nd Lieutenantl LT. COLONEL LUPER LEAVES FOR NEW POST Lt. Colonel James R. Luper, Post Op erations Executive since August, leaves us soon tor a new post at the Miami 6cs Training CoDII&nd. illen asked for a statement, the Col one l replied: association with the personnel at TYndall Field, though brief, has been both pleasant and enlightening. Ql the fiying line 1 which bas been principal interest, I have seen aechanics and pilots alike forget about their personal problems 4nd con veniences, and work m&n7 long and fatiguing hours in order to get the job done. I know that in the future as in the past, the men of Tyndall will keep 1 em tlying and tiring in order to keep 'em ti8hting1" Tyndall Field' s two mobile recruiting units wound up their 25-day tour otGeorgia, Alabama and F lorida with a record number or enlistments. The total number of men signed up b.Y the motor caravans has already reac hed more than 250, ot llhich two-thirds are special.:.. ists. These men have been sent to Camp Blanding tor their prelimindry military training, and the n will be returned to this F ield. Lt. Norval Rhodes, Recruiting Offi cer and his stattot enlisted men, Cpl. John Bosworth and Pvt. Richard Blaok, have been doing a ''Rushing Busine.ss" in their Post Headquarters o ffice, but announce that they still need more specialists for the AAF. For t he recruiting units, their t >ur amounted to a personal triumph o tain Ammon llcClellan, who supervi . :Jed the campaign, stated that the most :re markable thing about the trips the receptions they received from people of the cities v i s ited. l'he city ot Luverne, Alabama ; was so :..m pressed with the Tyndall unit there, that they have sent a delegation to Colonel Maxwell to request that the members ot that unit be permitted to be the guests ot the city on Armist: .ce Day. 'nle Captain also stated that a la:.ge measure ot their success was due to th!J c:o-operation they received from ull Jmerican Legion Posts and city cials, and alsoj from the u.s. Employ ment Service, which sent a man along with eaeh unit. Lts. Cletus Keating, Jr., and Cyril s. 01Niel headed the Florida unit, while Lts. James Patteson and Marshall directed the Alabama convoy.

100D MORALE -TRY RELIGION This nation o f ouz"s :i. r-on Christian principles; and in its earliest beginnings, it wa s pl1.>. ced und::. .. he protection of God. Christianity has developed in Americans a of the value of human life, and the sanctity of the home. At the inauguration o f Ltncoln he prayed thuslya "I go to assume a task more difficult than thAt which devolved upon Washington. Unless the Great God who assisted him shall e wi . h and aid me, I must fail; but if the same Omni sciel'lt Mind and Almighty A rm that d'ir-cted and protected him shall guide and support me, I shall not fail, I s}.aU s L e t us all pray that the God of' our Fathers may not forsake us, nV"' .. in the s ervice and people of' the entire world can take a lesson from this :;: . m&n who was smart enough to realize the need of Divine Assistance. We are a nation to the use of' slogans. Recently a prominent radio speaker paraphrased thf$ REMEMBER PRAY HARDER. Not 11 bad idea--especially when men begin to succ-:ab to tho biggest e nemy of' good moralea Fear. When the knees are knocking, it i.s good sense to kneel on them and pray. "Paralysis of' the heart and soul begins wi t1l tha paralysis of' the tongue and knees." Indifference to prayer leads t o the cease:tion o God's abundant blessings, for He is the source of' strength and encouragemente Haw do we go about this matter of' prayer? The answer is simple; it is like using the telephone You find best by doing it yourself. It is a sort of' telephonic conversation with God, but with none of' the mechanical inconveniences. It is well to learn the method no w before the need is really urgent. Bossuet once wrotea "Hands lifted in prayer smash more battalions than hands raised to strike." Remember Pray Harder a good slogan, especially if we want Him to recognize our voices when in diat:ress. It is a g ood idea to t r y it now, for God is a powerful ally in a strur-gla of any kind. ---S/SGT. FRANK J.BORELL s/SGT. W IL FRED L. L...---------'" O CTO BER SUNDAY 8:00 A.

At least two Tyndall Officere will the coming coffee rationing unflinchirlgly and unafraid. They are: Major Olarvoe and Lt. Casey. Reason: They have their own brand of Ouban coffee, which they prepare each evening at quar ters. There's no brew like a "home" brew" Drill Sergeant (Major) T. Howell used one of Panama boulevards as a drill field the other day in order to instruct rookie (Lt.) H. Gundlach in the finer points of "to the rearrrharch!!" Lt. Col. Hyndman claims he was so buay last Monday, that he forgot to eat his lunch! (01est la guerre) lven though Weather's Lt. Diekman has left us for a new aesignment, hie influence is still being felt here-what other excuse could there be for such mild weatherT Major P'ox couldn 1 t q111te conceal enthus iasm over the excellent "buy" he had made in the PX. There was one momant there at Pest Ra. when he hed two and a the texture of hh newl:r "'pink" shirt The time was one day last week at 5:00 P.M. The scene was at the West Gate aPProach to the bridge. lifty cars with home bound occupants were lined up, waiting for a huge "steam shovel" to creep its way across the span. The restless occupant s exchanged indignations with ferver. In fact, the only unruffled person among the 220 'thtit were kept waitin& for some fifty minutes was undoubtedly Cap tain Jasper Hendrick, Area Engineer, who had ordered the giant ditch digger from South Carolina. So, while everybody was gnashing their teeth, Captain Handrick was calmy relating the difficulties involved in bringing his "baby" down to Tyndall Field!

It seems that one stripelesa Master Sergeant was in hie office one afternoon last week, when an uninitiated private, after an argument, told him WHIRl he could go! When the private departed, the M/S said, quote: "Why the little 1$01*1$!, never will this happen again," unquote. The next day the M/ S appeared with stripee1 from here to yonder. the private appeared, all unaware, and found {l) one M/shomicide in his eyefondling a coke bottle, {2) a squad of clerks ar rayed in battle formation {one filing clerk ready to trip Raid private) and(3) one typist madly typing, "Now is the time for all good men, etc.," ready to throw his typewriter at the slightest provocation. However, the private's an tagonism malted at the sight of the massed stripes. The moral is: Never tell anyone WHIRl they can go, because they may be a M/S and not want to, orit's fun to be fooled, but it's more fun ,to know!

Everett Tackett TYNDALL TOPICS Raymond Clapper, in his column ot Monday, October 26, went into ecstatic praises over the unexpectedly great performances being given by our flying fortresses in Europe. The unexpected thing about the performance ot these big tour-motored bombers is their ability to knock down enemy fighters. No one was prepared to coun t so heavily on the bombers to destroy era We have no way of telling how much ot this praise Jlr. Clapper was heaping on the mechanical perfection of the "fortresses", but we are quite certain that those enemy fighters are not being downe d by radio operated machine guns. We've got a sneaking suspician that the "fortresses'" turrets and guns are being manned by human beings-by gun ners, who four or five months ago were probably crowding the little hamburger stand near our main gate, or were sip ping cokes out in Nevada, or were griping about the chow in Texas. The news that our bombers are doing such a good job is music to the ears ot all the Allied Nations. But Mr. Clapper should remember that, whether he comes from Las Vegas, Nevada, Harlington, Texas, or Tyndall Field, Florida, the GUNNm and his GUN are still the ''RULERS OF THE SKY I" Wbrd has reached us from citizens ot Panama City that members of the :=iv:il ian Air Patrol in this vicinity been the object of derisive rema:rks passed by men of this Field.

Jl STATIC CHASERS" Jr1Ul static heard over the Field on Tuesday could not be classified as thunder, although it might have been mistaken for it. It was merely this rooki e reporter "brainstorming" to report the various activities of Communications. We were at loss as to whether the name for this column should bo "SHORT CIRCUITS" or, "STATIC CHASERS" or, "THE DIT HAPPY MEN". "STATIC CHASERS" finally won the toss. A hail and hearty welcome to Sgt. Bradley Berry, who has just returned from a lengthy stay at Lawson General Hospital in Atlanta. At the same time, we wish a speedy return to Sgt. Wiley, who is leaving us to have h i s tonsils removed. Our newly organized Post Radio School is going full blast and it seems quite likely that in the near fUture Tyndall wi 11 have its fUll complement of qualified radio operators and mechanics. The men are getting a sound course o f instruction from Lts. Russo and Loyzim, S/Sgt. MacLaren, Cpl. Despain and Mr. Truman Kirby. S/Sgt. MacLaren our N.C.O. in charge has us all a dither over the costume he plans to wear at a Halloween party-says he's going to masquerade as Hitler. Incidentally, Communications has two sets of brothers under its care-Don and Jimmey MacLaren a nd Harold and Wilson Wiley, all natives o f the Tar Heel State. -Pfc. Jimmy MacLaren A w "MEDICWOES" e believe that there is a m istaken im-pression around that all the Medical Dep artment does is bloodtype, shots and hand out bad tasting medicine. Few m en actually realize what is behind one of those processes, for t hey never believe that the task of administering these services is often more distasteful to those doing the administering than those receiving The average hospital bill of a patient in an Army hospital would be staggering to many o f us i f w e released the figures on the co s t of a 'lfhorrible" shot, bloodtype, Wasserman or a month(?) of hospitalization. Besides the comforts of a modern, well equipped hospital, there is available the finest surgical and medical doctors in the country, compl emented by a staff of well trained technicians. Personally, we think that we are doing a good job and would like to impress this fact upon the men of this Post. We are asked to perform certain duties, and we doing it to the best of our ability. We beg no favors and ask no praise. -sgt. Laubly T "THE BLACKBIRDS" lhe interest shown by the men in organ izing the squadron's soft-ball team is greatly appreciated by the committee in charge. Indications are that we will have one of the best teams on the Field. Cpl. Snoddy, after ten months of con stant pursuit, has finally dated that Panama City belle Sgt. Ralph Noble has been feeling quite gay these last few days Mrs. Noble is expected down shortly The new nickname of Cpl. Frank Mund is now "High Diver"ask him why Sgt. Goodson is pinch-hitting for acting 1st Sgt. Taylor who is on furlough. The boys have been dickering with the idea of changing the squadron name. Sug gestions are still in order. We have it in the outfita A new commanding officer. The smallest buck sergeant on the Field. A former football coach with more than fifteen years of coaching experience. A former professional boxer. A former metropolitan A.A.U. gymnastic champion. A nationally known diver. A very much used pool table that rarely sees a game of pool. The biggest supply clerk on the Field. An ex-minor league baseball player -Sgt. Tony Statile L "ORDNOTES II t. Parsons is back with us after a month's sojourn in the hospital. We hear that a daughter was born to Mrs. Parsons three weeks ago. Congratulations and best wishes from the boys,sir. Guard night is when everybody catches up on their correspondence b etween shifts and loses their sleep. One fellow wrote to four girls up north during his night on guard, and said: has Clark Gabl e got that I haven't got-and if I had, wouldn't do me any good anyway?" (He must be alergic to sweaters).

Their hours are never ended. From one morning to the next, these men keep at their planes, checking avery detail so that there will be the least possible chance of any mechanical error. During the past few months, due to the shortage of men in the squadron, everyone was practically on double duty in the lngineering Office and on the line. This did not go unnoticed, and we take our hats off to thoRe boys for the swell job they1ra dona.

The Finance Office, after many months of preparation, will become a Disbursing Office on No.,.ember 5th, and has to ita credit almost a cool million. Starting with the month of November, all officers stationed at Tyndall J'ield will be paid directly from the new disbursing unit. Civilian employees and contractors not engaged in construction work, will also be paid by check from this office. The net result will be that all concerned will be paid several earlier than usual. Some will continue to be paid by goyernment check. There will be no change in the cash of enlisted men on regular monthly payrolls. Lt. Emory M. Shofner will be in charge of all operations, with Lt. Nathan Howard ass!ating. An efficient and trained starr of enlisted men are assigned to tee that all payaente are promptly made. The motto of the U. s. Army J'inance is, "Learn to do, by doing."

AN OPEN LETI'ER 'ro ALL SQUADRON AND DETACm!ENT C0104ANDERS AT TINDAlL FIElD Dear Sirs: In entering upon any discussion of athletic and recreational acti vities, all parties concerned must first concede that the winning ot the war is the primary consideration. And along this line ot reasoning, no one will deny that the morale ot the troops is a most vital factor. Athletic and recreational activities have always played a leading part in the building aoo maintaining ot morale in all military organizations. Here at Tyndall, tor various reasons, the A. & R. program has not been too successful. We hav e been requested by the men on the Field to use our columns in every way possible to aid in the organization ot a successful athletic program at Tyndall Field. We know that the present schedule ot work to be done, and the number ot men available to do that work, is going to make a full A. & R. program a difficult proposition. But we also know that, with out the 100% co-operation on the part ot the organization commanders, we will not have any chance or success at all .. The organization commander's responsi bility begins with the appointment ot an A. & R. representative for his outfit-a non-com who is interested, capable and !unction ,ge !:!!!, permit !!!:!! !2 properl.y handle h.!! important assignment. And, this man h!!!_ at all times, the complete backing of his C.O. Thus, the organizs. tion commander's responsibility !! !!!!: end!ns 2!!! Only under those conditions will the men at Tyndall Field have an adequate athletic program. The Editor J.PCRMm "GOLDE N GLOVE" CHAUPIO N WINNm OF FIR S T BOUT IN WE:Fl(LY IDXING CARD OYer three hundred Tyndall Field boxing fans were on hand to w1 tness last Thursday evening 1 s unusually large 1m'd of nine bouts, presented by t.be Field' s Athletic and Recreation Office. The feature attraction brought together two capable righters; Corporal Peter Beaton, former Golden Glove Champion from Point Pleaaant, New 1C rk, and Private Sebastian !campo, of tyracWie, New York. This fight had the crowd on its toes all the way. Both boys exchanged plen ty of leather, but Beaton's experience proved to be a little too much for his opponent, and the judges gave Bea;ton the nod. In another scrappy scrap, Prb ate Robert Branch, ot Pittsburgh, Fa., took a decision from Private Langley, of Durham, North CaroU.na. These two men put on a very good sl'lmr, threw plenty of p unches, and were 'f.-ell match4Sd. Other results were: P t e Anctrew net, of E&st Hampton, New York, took a decision Pvt. J ohn Paparazzi, of Brocklyn, Ne:. York ; Pvt. Frank K:lmo tek, from Youngstown, Ohio, and Pvt. Frankie Coppa, of Brooklyn, New y,:1rk, fought things out to a draw.
