Sam Marotta of the Guard ian5, reports that his latest ballad, 'I Heard Your Tears,' has already been played several times over the networks. Sam 5ays he ha5n' t hear.d from the publisher yet, but he expects the number of copies sold to fall just short of Wilkie's 'One World' In the "Miscellany" department we have the it em about Pvt. Clause of the Gunnerrnakers who wrote home to his wife that he had a broken leg and then walked down to the Post Office to mail the letter. The little wornan found out it wasn't so through the Red Cross. Lt. A.C. (Air Corps) Miller has been appointed commander of Flight Group II, according to a self-appointed scribe from that unit who signs himself as 'The Eye.' However, what the 'Eye' didn't tell us is that Lt. Miller and the Mrs. expect a little pi lot several months hence. Sgt. Charles Laubly of the Medics is one o f the Target's most able squ ad.ron scribes and as an example o f t h e esteem in which h e is held, we cite the f ollo wing incident: Laubly is no w o n DS in Atlanta, b u t prior t o his departure he prepared enough advance ccpy for the Medics t o take care o r the time he would be away. However, one o f his fello w Med:cs was not aware o f Laubly's sense o f responsibility f o r his job, and sent u s in a SeJlarate "squad ron scribbling. The payoff was t hat this anonymous scribbler signed the letter "Charles Laubly," probably forgetting that the envelope would carry a Panama City date mark and that we were very familiar wi tn Laubly's scrawl. We have been told that the 69th's Lt. Aylor recently visit ed his sweetheart, from Texas, in New Orleans. The report is that everyone had a grand time, including the gal's mother, who came along, presumably. for the ride P1c. Irving stabinsky had a rather awkward time of it this past week-end. His sister came down from Tallahassee for a visit and the introductions went like this: ... I'd like to have you meet my sister, SERGEANT Sara Stabinsky." (Tli.e young lady is a WAAC stationed at Dale Mabry. ) Congratulations were being re ceived all week by Tyndall's sec ond ranking staff sergeant, Fred erick W. Gilmore. Everyone con cedes that he played a great gam< even if he didn't get beyond first base. Coach 'Hardrock' Stone also came in for a share of the applause for his valuable 'moral support.' The game was halted when the opposition (Betty-_To Temple)-had to leave Tyndall in order to keep a wedding date in New orleans. Game time: 4 weeks, 3 days. Umpires: Liles, Edwards. Re-cap: No runs, 1 h1t (a scorcher out at Panama Beach), no errors (as far as we could see).

M 29 1943 Squadron A Nearly every class at Tyndall boasts among its number several interesting personalities. After a little research, we found that ours is no exception. Among our Brooklyn boys, the name of Pvt. Vito Rubino stands o u t.

As a pro, he met such top 1fiight men as Tippy Larkin and ,Freddy Ar-cher in prelims at Madison Sq_uare Garden. In 1937, Rubino worked out with Lou Ambers in preparation for Ambers' successful title shot at Tony Canzoneri. In the future Rubino hopes to use his slight build and fighting instincts twirling a lower ball. We feel that with his past record, he' 11 be one of the lads to put Tojo on the canvas for the count. Of course, we have our "char acters" as does any other outfit. However, only Class 4 3-26 has Pfc. Harold J. Grossman. Actually a "backstage" baby, Grossman has been in. show business since childhood, doing juve n i le parts wit h his parents at the age of three; Since that time, he has had numerous associations wit h prominent )people in the entertainment field.

Theophil C. Polakiewicz of the Quartermaster Corps. To say that the responsibility of keeping the very lifelines or Tyndall Field open lies on the shoulders of Lt. Polakiewicz and his aides would be putting mildly. Its very location makes Tyndall one of the most diffi cult in this section of the country to bring supplies into, as it .I.S situated 13 miles from Panama Citi and eight miles from the nearest railhead. The only way food supplies can be brought here, and the only way these same supplies can be sent to Apalachlcola, o u r s u b b a s e i s b y t ru c k convoy.

P. Kevan, director of flying, ex pressing the appreciation of the armament section for the cooperation rendered by the En g in e e r i n g D ep t. i n t b e d eseigning, manufacture and repair of armament equipment. Specific mention was made of the effort of Captain J. C. Bdstle, engineering officer, to cut red tape to the minimum. Also mentioned were Harold Dill, general foreman of the engineering shops; George F. Love, foreman of the machine sh0p; L. R. Bechtel, sheet metal foreman; and Frank Campisi, foreman of the woodworking shop. It is estimated that this cooperation has increased the efficiency of the aerial gunnery equipment here and at Apalachicola by approximately 30$, thns enabling this station to fire more rounds per aircraft than any gunnery school in the country. Mr. J. B. Story, persounel and training officer of the Sub-Depot, announced last week the appointment of Mr. I.M . Roche and Miss Lila Childs as instructors to the Snb-Depot Civilian Training which is to be inaugnrated .here in accordance with A. S. regulations.

Jackrel, the sixth man up, walked, filling the bases. Then Sedmak, the first baseman, promptly doubled and three more !"un s were scored to bring the inning's total to four. However, after this barrage, Higdon, the Ellyson pitcher, settled down and held the Tornadoes score less for the remainder of the gsme. Meanwhile, Davis held the Pensacola nine in check until COAST GUARD HERE TOMORROW Coach Stanley Drongowski an nounced that the Tornadoes w ould attempt to get on the path again tomorrow in a game against the local Coast Guard n1ne. Johnny Nocheck, forrrer Toronto hurler, is scheduled to take the mound foi the C(Jast Guardsmen, while Southard or D a v i s will do the flinging for t h e Tornadoes. The game will be on Tyndall's new athletic field. It will begin at 2 P.M. the fifth when they scored a lone run on an error, walk and sl ngJ e. Stl 11 holding a three run lead, the Tornadoes played good ball until the ninth when three singles, a walk and a wild pitch brought in four runs for Ellyson and spoiled a four hit mcnurl performance by Davis. On Sunday the two teams took the field again and played through the nine innings in continual rain. In this game both teams scored two runs in ALL-STARS DEFEAT LYNN HAVEN, 16-7 A star-studded of ball players from the Avia tion Squadron, exclusive of the members of the regular post colored team, thoroughly trounced the Lynn Haven Tigers in a game between the two teams last Stmday. Because of wet grounds the game was slow and numerous er rors were COTfllll it ted. However the dampness didn't hinder the Tyndall men at the pi ate as they banged out 16 hits which they converted into a like number of runs. The sluggers were paced by Pfc. John A. San der s who connected for the only home nm of the Lonnle Gorham was the win ning pitcher for the Tyndall team, giving up eight hits and seven nms. The AJ 1-Stars, under the competent managership of Cpl.

He, like Davis, had yielded but four hits in the past eight innings bYt weakened as he walked the first two men to face him. He tightened up a bit and caused the next man to po-p up to second, but Wolfe, Smith and Kerner, the next trio of Ellyson batsmen came through with singles to bring 1n two runs and then two more runners crossed the plate as Jackrel allowed the ball to pass through his legs into deep left field. 1st gaae TYNDALL AB R H Natonak, cf 3 1 0 Didier, c 0 0 0 Brown, 2b 3 1 2 Hines, ss 4 0 0 Ed.:ards, rf 4 1 1 Jaclcrel, lf 3 1 1 Sed11ak, 1b 4 0 1 Anderson, 3b 3 0 0 4 0 0 33 4 5 ELLYSON Zorich, 1b 4 1 l S ovanski, l f 2 0 0 Weaver, 3b 4 1 1 Franks, c 4 0 1 Long, ,. f 4 0 0 Scott, 86 2 0 0 Donofrio, 2b 4 1 0 Wolfe, cf 2 1 0 Higdon, p 3 1 1 Totals 29 5 4 2nd T YI!DALL AB R R II atonal\, cf 4 0 0 Didier, c 4 1 0 Brown, 2b 4 0 1 Rines, ss 2 2 1 Edwards, rf 4 1 3 JacJcrel, lf 4 1 1 Sed ale, 1b 4 2 Anderson, 3b 4 I! 0 Southard, p 2 0 0 Totals 32 0 8 ELLYSO"N Spellaan, 31> 4 0 0 Donofrio, 2b 4 1 1 SavonsJci, rr 3 1 1 Scott, ss 3 1 2 Zorich, 1 f 2 1 0 Franks, c 3 0 1 Wolfe, cf 3 1 0 Saith, 1b 4 1 1 Kerner, p 3 0 1 Totals 29 6 7 ORDNANCE TOPS FIELD IN INTER-SQUADRON EVENTS With the first quarter over, a tabulation of the results of inter-squadron competition 1n basketball, pocket billiards, horseshoes, table tennis and the cross-country run, show that Ordnance leads the field with a score of 65 points.
