Accompanying the veteran airman was Brigadier General w. w. Welsh, Chief of Staff of the Southeast Air Forces Training Command. Before making his first of three scheduled addresses at Tyndall, General Royoe went into a short conference with Brigadier General Walter Kraus, Chief of Staff of the AA.FFTC, who arrived here yesterday.

He recently was awarded The Distin -guished Flying Cross for leading 13 Flying Fortresses in a 4000 mile bombing raid from Australia to the Philippines and back, without the loss of a single ship.


A L .ETT TO JACK ON MARRIAGE Dear Jack, When you suggest the thought of marriage while in the Army, you are touching something serious. To the question, "Should a man in the Army marry?" there ca:n be no blanket "yes" or "no" answer; rather the answer depends on many circumstances--not the least of which are the social and economic. However, Jack, this point above all you must considers marriage is a sacred contract. It is sacred because so established by God. It is a contract because it regards an agreement between a man and a woman, excluding every other person from the rights and fruits of partnership, and bringing with it serious responsibilities. Consider the contracts "I, Jack Soldier, take thee, Ellen Amabilis, for my lawful wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better for worse, for richer or poorer, in siclmess and in health--until death do us part." W In business, men seriously consider the and capabilities of a prospective partner and balance them against the needs of the business. Yet this partnership can be easily dissolved. In marriage, you 3hould thoughtfully weigh the qualities and capabilities of the girl you wish to marry, keeping in mind the purpose of marriages children, a home, and a wife whom you will revere throughout your whole life. There is a little rhyme, Shakespearian, not in construction, but in wisdom, which I want you to memorize, He fell in love with a dimple and a curl And foolishly married the entire girl. When you consider marriage, discount external trifles and estimate frankly the qualities of the girl you want to be your wife and the mother ofyour children. e Faithfully, THE PADRE P.s. Since you expect the ideal from your girl, her less from yourself? wouldn't it be rotten to offer I thaptl WllmAI 8:00 A. M. --Mass ... Cbaplain Finnerty 9:00 A.

Silas Upchurch TYNDALL TOfiCS Despite the obvious omission of any reference whatsoever to "Armistice Day" in the past two issues of the "TARGET", we received no comment on the fact from anyone on the Field. Because of this, we are inclined to believe that we are not alone in our thoughts. The War Department had declaredthat Armistice Day was to be a day of regular duty for Armlf personnel. Since The War Department that any observance of that day as a "holiday" was entirely out of place, we don't see how it could have been considered otherwise by any other government agency, or the civilian population in general. We are in the midst of fighting what practically amounts to the same War of which that day commemorates the end. American fighting men are again daily making the supreme sacrifice for the same principles for which that conflict was fought. The memory of the men who gave their lives in that War could have been honored only by each American making an extra effort at his particular War job on that day. Haw an American could have accepted more than his usual pay for that day's work, is something we don 1 t quite under stand. Thanksgiving Day will be observed on the traditional last Thursday of this month. It too, will be a day of regular duty. But no matter what conflicts may rage, no matter what theory of government foreign despots may be attempting to force on unwilling people, Thanksgiving Day will be observed by Americans-that day IS .America. It stands for every man, for every deed, -that has changed this nation from a forest primeval to a land of roaring cities and sprawling farms. Changed it to a nation, which, in the course of three centuries, has become the dream, ---the hope, of a world oppressed. ---------------------Tyndall men who have been here since last April did not have to take the word of the Inspector General that the Field has shown a 100% impr ovement over the last inspection -they have been a party to that improvement. But thRy also know that there i s still room for impr ovement. Therflfore, every man on the Field is urged to senorll:U5 suggestions on changes for the better to us. Practical suggestions will be p.1blished in this paper, an.d steps will be taken to bring the matter before the proper Field authorities. Send us your suggestions immediatelyl e


W "STATIC CHASERS" hile our regular report.er rests in the hospital at Tyndall Field with noth ing to do but twiddle his thumbs, this "G.!.", not quite as capable, will continue to peck away at the keys in order to get this column out. Incidentally, thanks to the hospital staff which recently had a change of heart and released two of our radio men. Orchids to the "Chasers" on their efficiency during the recent emergency evacuation. Not only were the frequencies on the ships changed in record time with a minimum of confusion, but after the ships took off, our men proved that Tyndall has some of the best operators in the business. In our newly organized Radio Scho .ol the word has gone around that the "Blinker Code" is plenty tough. Just a little advise to those who might be faint hear ted, "Anything worth while is usually PLENTY TOUGH l A good example of what can be done with initiative and desire to learn is amply demonstrated by two of our best radio men, Cpl. Francis Hodges and Pfc. Cannizzaro. Neither of these men have a diploma from an Army technical school, and yet both are considered among the best on the Field in their line. Cpl. Hodges is an operator and Pfc. Cannizza, ro is a top flight maintenance man. When they first came down on the line to work, both showed inltiative and ability and speedily grasped the instruction offered by qualified men. At the bottom of last week's column some of you may have noticed the characters 11VY'7311 In radio code that means "Very best regards". 1130" means "The End", and "11 implies "Love and ltisses". So, VY73. -S/Sgt. Don MacLaren W "BLUEBIRDS" e want to extend a welcome to Lt. Ph ilip Leobowri tz, who was recently assign ed to this squadron and is now on "DS" at the RecJNit Detachment.

He is our new Adjutant, and hails from Massachusetts. Most of us will admit that we have been putting off the purchase of WAR BONDS. We all have good intentions, but it seems that something always comes up which makes us decide to wait until "next month" to buy them. Lt. Keim says that the new year may seem far off, but it isn't.

Their fine work ha,s been commended by Colonel Maxwell at Field. Our hats are off to them f.'or their remarkable feat. These men are doing much to add to the strong arm of Uncle Sam, who will crush the oppressors 'round the world. 'Wonder what sort of feminine plight i s stirring so many faces up in Headquarters lately? Particularly, two busom buddies (NCO's), who remain inseparable. S/Sgt.

Carpenter; S/Sgt. Elliot; and S/Sgt. Trombitas. Our weekly sewing "bee" is held every Monday night. This all came about through the suggestion made by s/sgt. Pini.on. that the ladies from the Service Club downtown be asked to come out to the Field on :Monday nights for the purpose of sewing any discrepancies in the fellows' Of course this bee is combined with a little music via a juke box. Nothing like a little musical tertainment to make the evening more enjoyable. And the fact that refreshments are served does nothing to lessen the evening' s fun. s/sgt.

Cost of the alleys will be pro-rated among the squadrons, each contributing from funds they now hold as a profit from operation of cold drink machines and pool tables in their day rooms. The Quartermaster Corps has announced that due to the unusual conditions. no date of completion can be approximated.

TYNDALL SPORT SLANTS Until we get a direct wir e from t h e Station Hospital to the P.R Office, we're goi ng to have to take our news from t he r e as it comes, mainly via carrier p igeon. (Delayed enroute). T he latest "hot" news from that sector is that Major Cleo Miller is the Field's un-crowned champion o f the tennis courts. Tyndall's Chie f of Surgical Services defeated Lt. Glen Heathers o f the Psych Research Detachment in the finals of the Offi cers' ne t tourney. The Maj o r's secret of success, in his own word s is, "NY forte is chasing after eve rything." Judging from the fact that most of his matches were de. c i ded i n straight sets, the Major s eems to have discovered quite a successful formula. His un-orthodox style is a result of original form and a smat t ering of boo k learning ( on tennis, of course). Observers claim that his sharp curving right-handed serve was exceptionally difficult to handle on the sandy court. Dawn Apalachicola way we hear that Lt. Herman is using all his s p are tim e in devising new plays for his basketball team. He is determined t o win a t least one game. To date, his team ha s battled furiously in each contest but only to end up on the tail e nd of the score. The boys there console him with the fact that the law o f averages i s boun d to catch up with his team.
