THE CHRIST OF CHRISTMAS "And it came to pass, that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world would be enrolled. This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governo r or Syria. And all went to be enrolled, everyone into his awn city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child. And it came to pass, that when they were there, her days were accomplished, that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. "And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. And behold an angel ot the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shown round about them; and they feared a great fear. And the angel said to thema 'Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tid ings of great joy, that shall be to all people; for, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in clothes, and laying in a manger.' "And sudd 'enly there was with the angel a multi tude of the heavenly army, praising God, and sayinga 'Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will.' "And it came to pass, after the angels departed from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to anothera 'Let us go over to Bethlehem, and let us see this word that has come to pass, which the Lord hath showed to us.' And they came with haste; and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. And se.eing, they understood of the word that had been spoken to them concerning this child. And all that heard, wondered; and at those things that were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God, for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them." (St. Luke II, 1-20) The Chaplains take this opportunity to wish. the entire personnel of this post, both military and civilian, a very merry Christmas. We pray thattheblessings of this holy season may descend upon you and your families. Chaplain Finnerty and Chaplain Wester SCHEDULE OF SERVICES Midnight Masa l2s00 midnight Mass asoo A.K.

A This week we celebrate t he second Christmas of ou war. the jungles and plains and deserts, bris.tle with guns, and the star the Wise Men saw gl ams down on a world in conflict. To some it may seem that the season has lost it meaning--that its message o f peace on earth good will to men, has been destroyed by t h e cannon and the bombs. The contrary is true. With war around us, what peace means. We can see now, if we did not before, that what we bad is worth keep i ng no matter h much it may cost or how long it may take. Aa on no other. mas, do we treasure all for which this season standee e never before, can we resolve with the New Year to win and preserve these things for ou r s e l ves and our children. You here, are celebrating Christmas as members of a great body of men-a brotherhood of those who fight for what they beli eve in. All ove r the world, on the train ing grounds of America and at the far outposts of Africa and the South Pa cific men at war are observing this day o f peace. Not perh a p s w ith the usual Yuletide festivi ties, but eve r ywhere with a keener determination that ther e s hall be other Christmas e s for us and for those e cherish. Out of war must come rlctory. come peace-the p e ace that Chr i stmas To you, a nd e ac h of you, I wish mas and a victori o u s New Year. With '!r:' ctcry vrl.ll symboljzos. ope-fillGd Chr:-Corps

MISS NELL CARTER 2No WEEK WINNER IETHERLANDS AERIAL GOflNERT STUDENT IS AWARDED DUTCH FLYING CROSS G. H. Paalman. Vaandrig. (which is the highest grade an enlisted man in the Dutch Arrrry can attain), received notice by telegram last that he was to be awarded the Dutch Flying Cross tor his heroic performance in a B-10 at Singapore. The Tyndall gunner left here for Jackson Mississippi, on Monday, where he was presented with the medal by General L. H. Van Oyen. At the same ceremony a posthumous award or the same medal was made to the late Lt. Van Erkel, formerly an instructor at Jackson, and a pilot of the B-10. The Lieutenant died in a plane crash several weeks ago. Vaandrig Paalman and his crew in the B-10 were credited with sinking one Jap cruiser. two Jap transports, and two Jap planes on December, 1941. The same B-10 aided Paalman's escape from Java the day after that island fell into the hands of the TWO BOWL GAMES WILL BE HEARD OVER WDLP THROUGH COURTESY OF LOCAL LAUNDRY (By Pvt. Sam Melson) The Christmas present of A.H. ltrus-e. owner of the Domestic Laundry, to the personnel of Tyndall Field will be the broadcast of two of the Bawl football games New Year's afternoon. The Cotton Bowl, featuring Georgia Tech and Texas U. will launch the pro gram at 2:00 P.M., to be followed by the Rose Bowl affair in which Georgia University plays the University of California at Los Angeles. WDLP wi 11 carry both programs under arrangements made by Kr. Kruse with Vergil Evans, manager of the local station. In event that one of the games run over into the other, highlights will be given to keep the listening audience tully informed at all times. LINE EXCHANGE CAIDIDATE BECCIIES SECOND COITEST FIJI'ALIST BY LARGE MAJORITY Kiss Nell Carter "steamrollered" to Tic.tory in the second week of the "Miss Tyndall Field" Cantest. Early returns on the balloting saw three candidates battling closely tor the lead. But as the voting ended at 2s00 P.M. on Wed nesday, it was evident that the "Line PX" entry had piled up a commanding lead over her two competitors. The number of votes cast exceeded last week's total, but despite this, Miss Carter coasted to Tictory by alA most two hundred tallies. It see.ma as though the P.l balloting barrage was geared to nothing short of complete conquest. Kiss Kitty Safar, Miss Polly llcLain and Kiss Mary c. Garrett finished up closely the voting, but it would have taken their combined total to have defeated Viss Carter by any sort of a margin. In a week that was marked by the ap pearance of organized campaigning, it seems that the effort brought forth results, tor one candidate at least. As the contest goes into its third and next-to-last week, Tyndall's enlisted men are once more r eminded that e all votes must be cast before 2,00 P.M. on Wednesday. "RHYTHM REVIEW", TUESDAY NIGHT TYNDALL RADIO SHOI TO FEATURE "1942 II .The Army Air Forces Hero of the Year" and a renew of important events at Tyndall 1942 will be the highlights or the Field's weekly radio a how on Tuesc!ay, December 29th.

Kelinsey dropped and broke a sherry glass at the O.C. the other night. He was charged I .25 for the breakage, but is reported to have collected doubl e indemnity Major Clarvoe found himself in a "dratt" last week when priorities claimed the windows he was planning to use for his new home. They were needed for another project on the Field One of the best ruses w e ve heard of is the story that Lt.

Captain SilT& was seen skipping about, and Lt. Bigbee was observed humming to himself at his desk.

Just about a year ago today, Tyndall Field was "formally occupied" by "in vading forces" from the Panama City Recreation Camp. On Christmas Day, 1941, these men entered Mess Hall #1 for the first official meal at Tyndall. It was a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings-an appropriate christening for a mess hall which has since served over 1,000 meals. This then, was the beginning of civilization at Tyndall Field. From mess kits and raking sand, we've advanced to metal trays and planting grass seed. In almost every instance it has been a case of going forNard. However, we regret to say, some of us are beginning to forget that cleanliness and neatness are still the im portant cri terions of the good soldier. The "TARGET'S" suggestion column recently carried the reminder that butts of cigarettes are being very carelessly. thrown away, instead of of them in receptacles or by tearing the paper, scattering the tobacco an d rolling the paper in a small ball. Let's start the New Year right by observing the lessons we learned while in recruit training. especially where neatness is concerned.

Actually, the old Finance Dept. had plenty of holly, and a tree--and as Popeye is wont to say, "Presinks", for every member of the detachment. Highlight of the ceremonies was a song, "Heil in der Furber's Face." It was rendered by Pfc. Art Schneider, who just rendered it to pieces "There ain't no Santa Claus," says Sgt. Joe Cappiello. "I hang up a sock Christmas eve, and when I wake up, it's just as dirty as the nite before." Two of the younger yardbirds who expressed doubts as to the existence of S. Claus, were excused by Lt. Shofner and were permitted to go dawn to the line to see him arrive by plane. And finally, though we're filled with "peace on earth, good will toward men", it shouldn't happen to a dog what we want to happen to Adolph, Kusso, Tojo, and all they stand for. -Sgt.

Keep up the good work, Calvin. The Kedics had a taste of revenge on Saturday when Pfc. Pecus scored a touch down and Cpl. J.L. Smith blocked a kick as they beat the Ordnance on our field, 8-0. We hope to do better on the basketball court next time. Those Yuletide decorations down here certainly lend to a merrier holiday season. Snow would complete the picture. (You can't have everything, Laubly. -the Ed.). About the "Taler's" comment concerning service at the PX, we figure that "date talk" ranks 95% of the time. Personally, i some of us want to get something to eat! We all hope that Pte. Dave Robinson will soon leave the hospital ward. He has had quite a siege And Pvt.

This, my dear "Dogfaces," is the_ introduction to a new department in the Target. Its purpose is to explain the mysterious mechanism that makes a mess hall click. The main reason for, this department is to create a good understanding between the men who eat in the mess halls and those of us who toil(who threw that)there.

We cooks are also human, the same as you, with the same desires, ambitions, habits, loves, hates and the ability to make mistakes. (Hear! Hear!)
