Tyndall, whose marksmanship in the skie s over St. Uihiel won him a commission in 1918, and tor whom this Field was named. Now, twenty-tour years later, Fort Pierce is again sending h e r na t i ve sons into world conflictthis t ime to win a lasting peace. Fittingly, many of the sturdy Florida town's younge r sons come to Tyndal l Field to enlist in the service ot their coun try. Above are pictured three of the most recent t o volunteers (L to R.)"

YOUR MOTHER'S PRAYING A Rriest once met an old Spanish mother who asked him to pray for her bullfighter son. And when the priest met the bullfighter himself, leaning against a tree, dressed in silver and black, smoking his cigarette, the priest wondered and asked him if he were not excited, were he not afraid about the morrow and the bull. "Why, no," said the bullfighter, "why should I be afraid?" "But the bull might gore you. That should scare you enough." 110h,no111 said the bullfighter. He stamped out his cigarette and grinned, "Amigo. Padre, my friend. That bull, he has no mother to pray for him, yes?" HORSE SENSE A horse can't pull while kicking. This fact I merely mention. And he can't kick while pulling, Which is my chief contention. Let's imitate the good old horse And lead a life that's fitting; Just pull an honest load, and then There'll be no time for "Most of our failures can be traced to the superstition that other people are not so smart as we are."

Everett Tackett TYNDALL TOPICS It seems to us that the folks of Panama City greatly underestimate the appreciation of beauty possessed by the men of Tyndall Field. To back up this statement we present the following incidents Miss Mildred Penton, a member of the senior class at the Bay County High School, was a candidate for the title of "Sanior Queen"and following a natural course for the procurement of votes, had a portrait photograph of herself placed in various Pa nama City eateries. One such photograph was placed on the counter of the Splendid Cafe on HarrisonAvenue. near Fifth Street. It would follow, in the natural course of events, that a photograph of such a comely subject would not remain stationary unless nailed down or. bolted. And, just such a thin g happened. The framed portrait of Miss Penton disappeared from the Splendid Cafe one day last week. Employees of the cafe are prone to believe that the "lifting" was done by a member of this Field-percentages lead us to the same conclusion. So, in all probability, a Tyndall man now has a picture of the "Senior Queen" for Miss Penton won the honor in the final voting. BUT, the photograph that is missing belongs t o her mother-it was an especially good portrait -and her mother has asked us to aid her in obtaining its return. As far as we know, there hasn't been any reward offered, and we don't think that there ought to behowever, if the photograph is turned in to this office,we might be able to arrange for an introduction to Miss Penton -what more could one ask? Of late, there has been much comment on the Field concerning the-improvement of the food at Mess Hall #1. Credit to1 the "New Deal" has gone mostly to Lt. c. Bro ome, who, no doubt, is greatly res ponsible. We are inclined to believe, howev er, tha t Lt. Broome, if given the opportulii ty to publicly say so, would give ample credit to his staff of mess sergeants, cook s and K. P s for their part in the "mess hall metamorphisis". Pvt. Ben Johnson was recently inducted into the service and was stationed at Ft. Bliss, Texas. He had applied for a cam mission in the Signal Corps, and was "sweating it out". He was on K.P. duty when notified of its approval. Was there ever a neater example of the proverbial jump from the "frying pan into the fire"?

"WHITE FLASHES" Our squadron had the honor of having a "WHITE FLASH" on display at the County Fair. T/Sgt. Stewart was detailed to take good care of the plane, which i s undoubtedly a rare privilege for any mechanic. One of our most eligible bachelors is being led from the fold this we aren't allowed t o tell his name, but his initials are "Prof" Dunaway. All the "Sunday Morning" quarterbacks are letting the parleys at the pool hall take all their money. -BY Monday morning they are really moaning and groaning. They absolutely still cannot see yet how Georgia beat Alabarna.-S/Sgt. M.E. Gibson "FINANCE FANFARE" The chief claim to distinction of Han nibal, Mo., is the fact that Pvt. Edmund O'Hearn was born there. Mark Twain hail ed from that city, too. When PFC. Frank Totten was returning from furlough, the bus he was riding on, broke down. Most of the passengers were mechanics, en route to'an airfield. They tinkered around, but no soap. Out stepped Financier Totten, took off his white gloves, lifted the hood, gave a deft flip nf the and the bus continued on its merry way. The Financiers won their first tour nament defeating the 932nd Guard Squadron 9 to 2. Pvt. Tom Small, who held at different times, every office in the Colorado State Organization of the National Association of Letter Carriers, is the new Finance mail orderly. Tom says he misses the old pack mtile he used to ridearound on, to deliver the mail in the Colorado hills. 11My watch .stopped, I didn't know lights were supposed to be out." -Cpl.

Pvt. Nick Gospoderc has conceded the fact that he will henceforth be known as "Gaspipe". Pfc.

Gould "ORDNOTES" Congratulations to Sgts Richardson Christina and Limbaugh for their Tech. 3rd Grade promotions, and to the others who "made" various promotions. The Ordnance collection of nearly all types of small arms and ammunition used in training at this post was an impressive array at the Bay County Fair. Sgt. Cin dric, T/5 Mahonchak and Pfc.

A REPORtER'S NOTES ON AN A. & R. MEETING We read in Wednesday's Daily Bulletin that there would be a meeting of all A. & R. Representatives on Thursday night at 6,30 P.M. at the "Rae" Hall. We made a mental note at the time that we would take time off and attend the meeting We almost forgot about it, and got down ther e twenty minutes late we expected to find at least fifteen or twenty men present, and were rather disappointed upon d iscovering that only five organizations were represented We were disap pointed for several reasons. First of all, we're one of those guys whose work involves a l o t of "desk fatigue" and we're l o o king forward to "throwing" a few e lbows on the basketball court; also, we're one of t he few who know how much Lt. Lawson h a s put into his A. & R. pro g ram and how desperately anxious he is to make it successful; and lastly, but not leastly, we know that the fellows on t he Field who might have the free time to participate won't get a chance to because no one in their outfit had enough interest to see to it that an A. & R. n on-com was sent to the meeting. At the meeting we saw the B irds'" Pfc. Madden and Cpl. Clark; the Finance's Cpl. Leon; "Brownies" Cpl. Balk; Medic's Cpl. Tarr; the "Old Timers 1 Pvt. Lam bert; and, we were told, the ''White Flashes'" Cpl. Olsen had phoned to let them know he couldn't make it. Each of these men impressed us as being capable and eager to get things started in their squt..dronsbut nothing could be done because all the representatives weren't there to arrange for the best time that the teams could meet We left the meeting thinking that in each of the outfits not represented, someone was not "on the ball" and every man on the Field was the loser for it ARCHERY The A. & R. Office announces that fifteen sets of bows (45 lbs.) and arrows are available for use to the men on the Field. Instruction will be provided upon request. Call at the "Reo" Hall. GOLF Mr. Bob Ford, Golf Pro at the Panama Country Club, announces that a one day golf tourney will be held on Sun., Nov ember 8th. Match play, flights of eight.
