Gen'l. Barton K. Y oun t e .G. of the AAF Flying Training Command.

"A man saida 'I h av e been waiting ten years to get even with So-and-so, and no w I ha ve my chance.' Another remarked: 'That fellow double-crossed me once, an d I will make him reg ret it if it takes me the rest of my life.' "Each or them was really sayinga 'I am a little man.' For if biography and history teach us anything it is that big men have almost always refused to poison their spirits with vindictiveness and hate. "Napoleon was by no meaus an ideal character, but he had superb indifference to personal animosity. When someone his judgement in appointing one of his critics to an important office, Napoleon expressed surprise. 'What do I care what he thinks of me,' he demanded, 'as long as he can do the work?' "Abraham Lincoln amazed the nation by putting into his cabinet his foremost political adversaries. As Secretary of War he chose Stanton, who had sneeringly characterized him as a clown and a gorilla. He made Seward Secretary of State, knowing well that Seward regarded himself as much the abler man. Chase, his Secretary of t he Treasury, used his cabinet influence to promote his own chances for the Presidential nomination. It meant nothing to Lincoln so long as Chase kept the c onfide nce of the country and did his work well When llcClelland snubbed him brutally, and Lincoln was urged to replace him, he replieds 'I will hold McClelland's horse if only he will give us victories.' "In the Bible is this sentence& 'Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.' A certain prop ortion of men feel that they must help the Lord in his task of repayment that otherwise He will get behind in His work. So they nurse p ersonal injuries; t he y harbor resentment, and accept every opportunity to denounce and criticize. "These are never big men. Big men are too busy." !lliDAX 8:00 A. M. --Mass ...

To be on the safe side, the Orderly Room has obtained a World Atlas for reference in case it is necessary to contact Sgt. Weiss in his absence.

However, the Post Mess has decided that the men at T yndall shall be able to "taste the difference". A seven-course meal, comple te from sou p to nuts,. will be served at no on on that day-with two or three types of dessert at the finale. Post Mess is also preparing a souvenir m enu to.be distributed at the meal The m enu will carr;r a "Thanksgiving" them e and will include photographs of the mess halls and Post Mess personnel. The souvenir is being put out through the cooperation of tho Drafting Reproduction Departments, and present plans, call for it to be printed in several different colors. ''Home was never like this" and we have an idea that the folks at home would enjoy receiving a copy of that menu via the mails. The daily 11NEW'S BULLETINS" which suddenl y made their appearance on Thursday noon are one of the best innovations to hit this Field in a long time. Lt. Walter Hickey, who had seen similar bulleti n s issued at Maxwell Field, suggested to a member of the Public Relations s t aff that we pu t one out here. The idea was submitted to Colonel W.A. Max well and he immediately appro v e d it. Arrangements were then speedily m ad e with the Panama City "News-Herald for the telephoning of the latest news to the Field, an d now the Public Relations Office is twice daily distributing news bulletins t o aid Tyndall's personnel to keep up with the fast moving ev ents of today's battle fronts. Perhaps the girls at the PX lunchcounter aren't experienced "countermen", and perhaps they do play favorites, and maybe they do refuse to wait o n y ou if you don't happen to be standing at their "section" of the counter, but boys, they can singl We suspect that the recently installed "juke box" has been responsible for the transition from parrots to silver-throated canaries. If you happen to catch an 8:30 P.M. bus f rom the Field, you can relax and listen to the nation's top song s as only a PX quintet can render them. Their repertoire includes such mel od ies as "Remember Pearl Harbor","Mexicali Rose" and "Somebody Else ". Our only complaint is that they put too much enthusiasm into "From the Halls of Montezuma" 1 Someone should teach them the word s to the Air Corps song.

"SIGNALlERS" It i s reported that "Nate" Chernoff donned his spectacles for one of the "Girlie" shows at the Fair. It must have been a darned good show, for this was the first time that Chernoff has been seen wearing glasses. Just where is the location of this phenomena l display of feminine epidermis, and please, may I bor row your glasses? Mr. Chernoff? Pfc. Yell took a three-day pass and "took unto himself" a wife. Congratula tions! It looks like Montgomery is the place to head when one gets a pass. Panasuk and Potts are back with us af ter three months of schooling in Chicago. Panasuk learned a brand new polka plus several things pertaining to the maintenance of the Automatic Telephone Sys tem. Potts is a but reluctant to talk about the extra-curricular activity at Chicago, but he too has a head filled with theory as to just how that System should operate. Brozanski, who is up at Camp Crowder, Mo., writes that he has found a nearby town not frequented by soldiers, and loaded with women. I knew he'd find something like that. Hey, S/Sgt. Blazak of Finance, did I hear you say you wanted to "pay off" at Camp Crowder? -Sgt. Wm. 11. Hines "QUEEMCOS" C: ongratulations to Sgt. Mitchell, who finally let Rosemary talk him into "death do us part". The cigars were good too. A certain Sergeant in the Q.M. Office won' t admit that he goes to "Port" on week-ends, but we know better. Don't blam e him,either. A welcome is extended to Sgt. Porter, who is now back with the boys. Soon there'll be another little Porter, and the expectant papa is quite proud. Best of luck to the boys who have gone to Apalachicola. -Pre. Albert Rubin "BROWNIES" luckiest fellow in the squadron is S/Sgt. "Booger" Powell. He averaged oD.e statue pe r night on his trips to the Fair. How did you do it, Now that S/Sgt. Mcintosh has his car, he has picked up speed -his constant "date" is a secret-so he thinksl Con gratulations are in order for Sgt. Larkin and Pfc. Gorman, who were recently appointed aviation cadets. -Cpl. Hakeem "THE GUARDIANS" Heartiest and most sincere congratulations to our Commanding Officer, the former Captain John M. Wilkins, who last week was promoted to the r ank of Major MAJOR JOHN M. WILKINS, Post Provost Marshall and Commanding Officer of "The Guardians". The Major is anative of Alabama and was assigned to Tyndall Field in December, 1941 I Sgt. Charles Bernard, Champion Cavity Beater, claims to be the roughest, toughest Sergeant of them all in fact, he eats "Krunchies" for breakfast. Additional congratulations are in order for the recipients of the latest deluge of ratings Wish a drop would fall on this poor scribe And now Sgt. M. Chil ders has taken that step t o the altar. Best of luck to you on your matrimonial venture, Sergeant1 NOTES FROM THE GUARDS' SCRAPBOOKs The guard squadron is co mposed of a conglomeration of boys from different walks of life. We now have in our midst boys who have been traffic cops, policemen, truck drivers, fingerprint men, photographers, reporters, cooks and waiters. The guard squadron was originally com posed of many old timers who are no longer with us, and was called the 69th Air Base Squadron. Robert Endsley, now a 1st Lieutenant, was the outfit's first sergeant. Later, the name was changed to the 66th Materiel,and then back again

to the 69th with Marshall Hoskins, now at OCS, as first sergeant, and now, under its. present nrume, it is being capably guided by lst/Sgt. P. M. O'Niel, with Sergeant Morris as clerk. Incidentally, Sergeant Morris has been the squadron's clerk since January, 1942. As the Guard Squadron, we are responsible for the security of the Field. We have been called upon to fight brush fires, guard planes, patrol the beach, and even pull K.P. all without a whimper, always willing to do our share. The (ouch) M.P.'s also belong to this squadron. They are really good fellows at heart, even though at times they appear to be rough or brusque. The M.P.'s usually get the full cooperation from the boys in town, and realize and appreciate that fact. They want the boys to have a good time, and only step in when that "good time" gets too boisterous. And there you have the Guard Squad ron. -Cpl. Sam Marotta "MUSTANGS" congratulations to the seventeen newly created Staff Sergeants Sgt. Paquin, back from the record-breaking recruiting tour, states that sales of War Bonds in which they participated, also reached record proportions. Taxi privileges to the barracks are definitely, a break for out outfit, as we are strictly a zebra far.m. And no cracks about horsefaces, please we are proud of our Pvt. Goodman, who consistently turns out those belly-laugh cartoons for this paper. Lt. Shields, our c.o., was quite pl..; eased at being able to present all those hundreds and hundreds of dollars to the united charities fund Ah, what blissfullness is S/Sgt. Culver's since he has taken the matrimonial road to joyl And Pfc. Mulcahy is back from furlough with tall tales of conquest some of our boys have become intensely religious. They're praying that the Glen will be put back within bounds. Our Non-Com meeting was a huge success 'with definite big doings slated for the near future The comparative ease with which three-day passes are being secured has brought great joy to the outfit, and the boys wish to thank those responsible for this windfall Pfc. Craven is ham-/. -f![ptlt .. mering himself into squadron popularity with his excellent carpentry And mail clerk Baker reports that squadron War Bond sales are zooming. Our Day Room, a thing of beauty and a joy forever, is to be wired for sound via a new juke box. Swing it, boysl -Sgt. Sam Schun "ORDNOTES" SQUADRON JOTTINGS, There' a Pfc. Joe Gentilquore who finds himself most unpopular with the "Lady Drivers" at the wash-rack And Pfc. Snow has received a batch of telegrams congratulating him on his recent promotion to "PFC." (Some one pulling your leg, Snow?) T/4 Grant and T/5 Spain have decided on separate rations Also, T/5 Latini is back from a long stay in the hospital, and M/Sgt. Burnett is back from school at Lansing, which clears the slate. -sjsgt. Ken Witham (Ed's. Notes For further ''ORDNOTES", see the "TALER'S" page). A "FINANCE FANFARE" strange new malady has reared its ugly head, "telephonitis11 Cpl. Joe Cap piello called his girl friend via long distance telephone recently. When he finished speaking, the operator out in and said, "That will be $34.00 additional please!" When Joe "came to", he was heard to mutter weakly, "Who says talk is cheap?" M/Sgt.

Orion Roberts we are reminded of the "night-school" kid who used to cheat in an astronomy exam by looking out of the window. Orion, (everyone calls him "Si"), worked on the "Colorado Springs Gazette-Telegraph" in civilian life. "And who," asked Finance's own yardbird, "are the other six wonders of the world?" -Cpl. Felix Leon II BLUEBIRDS II Congratulations are in line for First Sergeant V.D. Rahm.whose wife gave birth to a 7 pound, 2 baby girl on Nov ember 6, 1942, at 12,00 A.M. Mother and

H.)(. 01 son is suffering from a shook which he acquired when his home state, Wisconsin, was beaten to the tune of 6-0 by Iowa. We bid good-bye to the boys who are leaving for Apalachicola. We are also losing some of our planes along with them, much to our sorrow. Some of the boys had a pretty good time at the Fair from the rumors that are go ing around. What happened there that would not happen in Boston? Perhaps Pfc's. Middleton or Padgett could en lighten us. That, "Crime Does Not Pay", is a very true saying, as a glance at the change in the signature of this columnist will reveal Everyone is waiting for s/sgt. Chope to get in the groove again. He seems to have developed a mysterious ail ment in his back recently. -Ex-Cpl. Snead "69TH STUFF" lf he fellows in the squadron extend a hearty welcome to the two new officers recently assigned to our outfit. Pvt. John w. Aydellotte has been ap pointed as assistant squadron athletic director. Let's give him our cooperation and turn out winning teams for all events Tragedy or the week was the loss ot front "molars" by Sgt. J. Lesher. He now has a slight lisp. (Tho thorry, John) It has finally been revealed that Pvt. J. Ritter has aspirations on becoming one of those daring Commandos. (Jun ior or senior?). The purpose of this column is to air the news of the 69th, personal or gener al. However, unless the rest of you fel lows that I don't know give me a little news about yourselves or your buddies, I won't be able to include anything of personal interest to you. So please, if you have any news or humor, give it to the mail orderly or myself. -Pfc. Maurice Gould "RED BIRDS" The "Red Birds" are very blue this week. Our ace reporter, Pfc. Vincent Del Ponte, has taken a two-week vacation (with pay), and has left a miserable squadron clerk stranded with the column. Best wishes from the boys, "Ace", sniff, sniff. 0 .And speaking of furloughs. s/sgt. Christensen is happy once again. We realize it was a very hard sweat--and, incidentally, thanks very much for re minding us. Thanks be to the Cross-countries--many boys are once again finding out how the other half lives Why worry about dessert, the "Red Birds" have a watermelon patch-but they ain't tellin' where. The War Bond drive is on in this or ganization. The money involved in the purchase of War Bonds is a saving to the individual, and on a greater scale, the saving of a nation. Let's all put our best foot forward in the purchasing of War Bonds, so that we can continue to put our best foot forward forever, with out worrying about it being clipped off by some barbarian. Let's "KEEP 'Dl TYPING" WAR BONDS! -S/Sgt. a. Duda "STATIC CHASERS" This column will be under par, the communications' reporter, Pfc. MacLaren is in the hospital with leg. Here's hoping he comes out much more than just a nub. since Jimmy a bum with Post Communications received their uew code tables and already have them wired up. This, and a little much needed hea. t, will enable the "Chasers" to do better in their radio school Incidentally, t.he "Staticers" are getting quite a bit ot flying experience via cross-country flights, aided of course by this awful ( ly nice) Florida weather. Those storms that were reported due this way must have been propaganda put out by the Califor nia Chamber of Commerce. Who was the Radio man from this Field, who, in Columbus, Miss., walked aronnd all afternoon with hi s/sarachute on lLi s back? -VY 73 S Sgt. D.

TYNDALL SPORT SLANTS Traditional rivals are scheduled to meet o n the bowling alleys this week end as the Champion Q.v. Keglers take on t he Finance Pin Men in a challenge match. Men on the Field who were here last March may recall that it was the Q.M. b oy s who came up from third place in the league to topple the then leading F inance bowlers into third place and win the Field crown. T he never did get over their defeat, and their refusal to admit that they were soundly trounced has resulted in the Q.M. Keglers challenging them to an outside match. Our money still is on the Q.K. boys despite the tact that we respect the hook s and curves ot Costigan; Bla&ak, Underwood et al. T he boys trom Apalach report that the enliste d men downed the officers in a recent basketball game by a score of 19-2. That "2" leads us to believe t hat the officers didn't have th 1r sights properly adjusted, or else they w ere just trying to make the boys at the Sub-Base feel good. The "Gunner Makers" have announced that, without pu lling 81:1 punches, they h ave just about t. e best baseball team on the Post. They claim that Steve Blankenship and Rank Chapman are "ac complished" diamond experts, possess ing plenty of previous Manager Martin Tobolsky has oiled the gears and the old ball club will get going this Sunday. It nny ron has any inflated ideas about their baseball team, the "Gunner Makers" have officia lly challenged any and all com ers. Phone #2158 and ask tor Sgt. Taylor o r Tabolsky. From what we can gather, the center of activity for softball at Tyndall seem s to be down at the hospital area. It seems that enthusiasm is so high down t here, that on one occasion the Uadical Officers loaned their "star" diamond performer, Lt. Maxwell, to the opposing B.O.Q. team and w ou nd up on the tail end of a rather lopsided score. Lately, however, the Medic. has taken cognizance of their foolhardi ness and have kept Lt. Maxwell where h e belongs and in their last game defeated the B.O.Quers by a score of 12-6 Lt. Harbin L.
