THE PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE If you ever watched a surgeon preparing for an operation you probably were amazed at the almost endless detail of his preparation. There was nothing, absolutely nothing, left to chance. The surgeon may be a hail-fellow-well-met on the golf at a bar, or at the poker table, but when he enters the ready rooUJ at the hospital he un dergoes a complete transformation. He may joke about "cutting bellies" during off-hours but on the job he is a professional. He is dead serious about his business. He studies his patient. He studies the history of disease or the injury involved. He examines his instruments. More than likely he will refresh himself from his books or the latest periodi-. cals on this particular problem. He prepares the patient carefully and outlines contemplated procedure in advance to his assistants. Nothing that can be anticipated and prepared for in advance is left undone. What has all this to do with flying? Just this. Flying an aLrplane has been graduated from the cate gory of dare-deviltry or stunting. It has become science -a profess ion --to be learned from the bottom up, backwards and forwards, inside and out. Each mission requires the same careful planning, the same analysis of all possible eventualities, the same caution that the surgeon exercises in preparation for a major operation. Photos and Interviews by SGT. SILAS UPCliURCH THIS WEEK1S QUESTION (ASK ED OF GUNNERS): AFTER GRADUATION WHERE WOULD YOU PREFER TO OUR ENEMIES? THE ANSWERS: PFC. RICHARD K. ELWELL: "Ag'atnst-the Japs in any theatre. I had a brother and a friend on .Guadalcanal and recently sew the friend at home. He had both badly shot up by ma-,chine bullets." PFC. WALLACE W. DAVIS: "On the Tunisian front. I have a brother who has been there seven months and. :':z. writes of a need for aeri:'L Wcrvis also has a brother sometdzere in the Pacific with the Seabees.) There are times in case of emergency when a sur geon must act boldly, almost recklessly. It is then that his intensive training and his infinite attention to detail give him the skill and the daring to proceed. These arise in the profession of flying, too. But the surgeon never takes a chance just for the fun of it his professional standing slikes treachery and wants to into act ion the Nipponese anywhere on the He feels the Yanks are suPerior to their enemies anxious to out and Prove it. will not permit it. The flyer, by the same token, cannot submit himself, his crew, or his airplane to hazards which could have been foreseen. Surgery has developed as a most honored profession because its have set high standards for themselves. They have adopted a businesslike, pains taking attitude toward their work. We call it a "pro--fessional" attitude. Aviation, too, will progress exact ratio to the degree to which its devotees adopt the "professional11 attitude.

JOHN J. BARRY; ofJersey City, lost his hill Dilly to the WAVES But the addition of Pfc. RED All'DRD to the bay's roster helped somewhat in restoring peace. Cpl.FRANCIS IAFAYEITE JONES, well known man abrut St. Joe, is earnestly fostering a whisper 1ng campaign to make it known that Sgt.

HEN!EtOON j s becoming quite a Gulliver, what with nightly trips to P.C. and St. Joe. Mrs. Hael Thompson CHIEF CLERK OF OM OFFICE HAS L()IG SERV ICE RECffiD Right up front m the Quart ennaster Office sits a smiling, efficient example of the wO 's part in this man's Anny. Hazel H. chief erk of the QM Office, is able to boast a longer service record than most of the men on Tyndall Field. Ever since the Fall of 1933, when she was "inducted" at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia1 she has been a "Government ual." Her record reads like the history of an adolescing anny. At Fort Oglethorpe sne was initiated into the headquarters of the Sixth Cavalry and District 'C" of the CCC which had 92 camps tmder its wing. This meant that approximately 18, 000 yOtU'lg men had to be clothed fed and housed. Mrs. Thompson's part in this herculean task was played in the role of Mail & Records Clerk, Assistant to the Chief Clerk and Secretary to the Quarter-ter. It wasn' t til Octo-er, 1941, that she received er shipping orders. Anycne-wfio has been fortunate enough to see Camp Forrest, Tennessee, 1n all its gracious glory of 19!3 wruld find it nard to visualize that in 1941 1 t was nothing but acre upon acre of wilderness and swamp roots. That's h.ow Mrs. Thcmpson fotmd it on her arrival. F'rom this mighty site, Mrs Thompson organized an office, hired ,ersonnel, bouiht fUr niture and office macFiines and generally transfonn.ed a Nation al Guard tent camp into a modern, streamlined headquarters. In all this long grind Hazel has found only a few days for vacations at her hane in Chat tanooga. Her lrusband is in oreign service w1 th the Eh gineers. Here at Tyndall, Mrs. ThCillp son executes her duties with a grace and ease that only serve to heighten her efficiency as the coordinator of all Quart ermaster units on the field. Mrs. Thompson was with Col. MoOre for six years at Ogle thorPe and has been with him at TYndall since Oct., 1942. The past ten years have been hectic ones for Mrs. ThorJ.l>Scn 1 but like a true "Goverrrnent Gal" she has ta:Jren every hurdle in stride. We salute her for being a real soldier. Pfcs.

Moore's 907th Quartermaster Detachment in line with Special Service's dance entertainment program. In cooperating with Captain Freeman, Special Service Officer, and USO, the QH's staged a variety show the I ike of which has seldom been seen west of Broadway. Led by Cpl. Dave Savino as master of ceremonies, the men got off to a rollicking start with a chorus of six hefty "chorinesw camouflaged as wThe Quartermaster Burley Gurleys" who performed an intricate ballet number. In rapid-fire succession, a barber shop trio--The ThreeT's, T/5 Lefty Nolan, John King, and T/3 Paul Hemsoth --encored wit h a community sing followed by Sgt. John MacBeth hamming Shakespeare as it has never been hammed before. John King returned to the foo tlights as something bordering oo Vera Zorina, complete with high kicks and graceful turns. A dramatic presentation by_ the Quartermaster and Ale Club had the large audience almost literally floating down the aisle as it gave a premier performance of "Home at Its Homl iest," a tale of woe and whiskey. To ease the tension, a quartette of singers drafted from the Motor Pool and the 30th Aviation Squadron offered a group of spirituals. Mr. AI Oromaner, judo expert extraordinary, climaxed the show with an exhibition of Jiu-Jitsu using T/3 C.J. Mitchell as assistant. In grand finale, the cast ensembled for a farewell parodied on "Thanks for the Memory." Throughout the performance innumerable stooges lent madcap mirth and merriment in the persons of Sgt. Don Calabrese, Cpls. E.R. Smith and Sam Pfcs. Leo D. Wolford and George Thornton. The entire production was directed by Lt. Jack &ld smith, Company Comm11nder, and the costumes were by the girls of the Quartermaster Qff ice .s_!_aff. __ MOVIES FOR THIS WEEK -POST THEATRE-SUNDAY, MONDAY, May 2-3 wHit Parade of 194 aJohn Carroll Susan Hayward "He Hired the Boss Stuart Erwin Evelyn Venable TUESDAY, Kay 4 WEDNESDAY, Kay 5 "Pride of the Yankees" Gary Coope"T Teresa ltrijlht THURSDAY, FRIDAY, Kay 6-7 "The Moon Is Down Sir Cedric Hardwicke RITZ SUNDAY TUESDAY, Kay 2-4 "Keeper of the Flame" Katherine llepburn S.

Whenever a winner is chosen, some feelings may be hurt. At the risk of such a disaster, but prompted by a desire to give all credit where it is due, the crown for the best performance to date goes to the Cld Ccrnpany. Here is a perfect example of what a group of men can do if they p.1t their minds to it. There is not one bit of ootstanding talent in lthe outfit, but under the lead ership of Lt. Jack Goldsmith they put rn a show that had their guests howling with joy ani screaming for more. Their time for rehearsal was as limited as any other group on the field, but by sheer effort and enthusiasm they "gave out" with the best show ever seen in the Recreation Hall. All this proves that it can be done, and if we continue to perform as well as all the squadrons have done so far, still greater improvement in the parties is in store. BAND LEADER REPORTS FOR DUTY HERE Warrant Officer (jg) Jol1n M. Missal, a band leader, has reported for duty with Tyndall's AAF Band. Mr. Missal formerly was con-' due tor of the Albuquerque, N.
