The invitation was put to me by a colleague whom T had presumed to be an intelligent native of the South, but the expression of my sentiments in this case will not be curbed nor dulled because of that acquaintance.

The government, in dispersing the boys drafted froin' tne the north to Army camps in the south, has caused a new admiration to be born in the hearts of the "damyankees" for their brothers of the south. For certainly there are thousands of northern boys who feel as we do that if. the men, women and children below the Mason-Dixon line have been forced daily, for decades, to eat grits and can still stomach the stuff, then truly their perseverence through that hardship deserves at least an admiration for their courage S/SG'!.

June 5, 1943 INTRODUCES MEASURE TO NCREASE FAMILY AID ALLO#ANCES Here's more good news for :enlisted men who have "to love, honor and obey, nntil death do us -part. Introduced into the Senate by Senator Lodge of Massachusetts was a bill which would increase the Government's contribution to servicemen's dependents allowance by 15 cent. Tlrus, an enlist ed man with a wife but no child would receive $32 from the gov-: ernment instead of $28. Other increases are corres-ponding. Lodgeexplained his proposal was made because or the increased cost of living. .He said .that "indications multiply that the number of depenrlents who re-ceive varlous forms of assistance f'rom He also pointed out that the rate of induction of men with dependents will increase in the near future." Guardians The Guardians seemed to have grabbed "spotlightft honors the past We had our fing ers in quite a few "pots." Pvt. Jack Lyles' wife tops the honors by being the first spouse to make use of the field's maternity ward. The Lyles were the happy recipients of a sixpound boy. Elaborate plans are being made for a gala dance to be given at the American Legion Hall at PC. Sgts. P. Hamilton and C. Bull, Cpl. J. Mashburn and your scribe are in charge.

The Tornadoes, facing the lo cal Coast Guard unit, banged out nine hits in the sixth and seventh innings for a total of ten runs to completely demoralize the tars, who called the game to a halt at the end of the seventh. A home run with bases 1 oaded by left fielder Davis in the stretch frame was the blow that caused the Guarrlsmen to drop anchor.

OKEHED FOR GUNNERS Squadron A With the second week' s exam and the larger pa.rt of classroom subjects finished, Squadron A s embryo gunners embarked on their range work with the proverbial vengeance. In skeet, Pfc. Wayne Squadron D Well, our pledge came true about our week at Apalachicola wi t'b class 43-22. Our boys led by Lt. Davis beat the averages of Lt.

The "King's Men" took top honors i n Saturday's inspection with a cool 96$, to finally take first place after two successive seconds. In addition, commendation was given by Lt. R. R.

For reference, contact Pfc. 1s Scheier and Russell, who ran into Lt. Ference the other night on their way back from the orderly room, each jauntily clad !n a pair of GI shorts PERIOD. Squadron C With universal disgust the fellows of this squadron have 'picked up the field paper to find it filled with the whys and wherefores of some sergeant's love affair. These guys might just as weli go jump in the lake--for we don't give a damn about their love life. The boys in this squadron are just like all others--only better. Let us glorify a so-called lowly private who is just a common guy w1 th an uncommon story. Pvt. Rogelio Bolado was born in Hidalgo, Mexico, and educated in that country. When the United States was plunged into war be came to this country and tossed his fortune in with ours. Before coming to this country, Bolado had never spoken a word of English. But so apt and alert is Rogelio Bolado that he already has mastered the English language with surprising per\ fection. Ever since he can remember be has wanted to man a machine gun from an airplane and now at last Bolado is beginning to fulfill that wish. Only seven months -ago he became a citizen of the United States after having serv ed in the Air Forces for more than four months. The boys of squadron C like him and he bas accustomed himself to his new job very well. He ha,s gotten used to many new things--but he laughs when he thinks of Sgt. Cherry of Skunk Hollow. "He' s the guy no one copld get used to," laughed Rogelio, "but he tickled me very much. Squadron B Have you beard the question of the wee];:? 11What mess hall do the horse flies eat And why can't we eat there too so we also can be big a nd strong." Warning to A!C Casey weather tower reports low pressure area moving in this direction. Yon are advised to stay in bed next Tuesday. Eight of the cadets going through gunnery school already bave received wings as glider pilots. Upon completion of this course they'll receive gunners' wings. Then off to navigation and bombardiering for two more sets of wings. They should be ready to take off, literally. The boys already are looking forward to their graduation party since they've uncovered some real talent in A/C Dick Hough, former member of Guy Lombardo's band. Dick can really .swing it on hjs sax as any Lombardo fan can tell you. DID YOU KNOW? A/C Mike Abate has seen action in the Southwest Pacific. A/C John Browl.ey is a well-known amateur golfer, and has held many titles. specialized training at the Uni versity of Alabama. Sgt. Sanfred Trahan spent a year and a half with the Zombies and calypso singers in Trinidad, serving as a ground operator in the inter-island tactical network. Stationed at Waller Field, he was a member of the newest organization the Army bas ever shipped to foreign duty, the outfit having been formed less than a month when its orders came through. Squadron punishment took a new twist last week when lst/Sgt. Newell C. Cross told his "problem children" that they would be marched to the Guardhouse Sunday morning, and later be put on a detail to atone for their fre.quent absences. As it later developed, the "Guardhouse" angle was a myt h, but the result was nothing short of miraculous. -Sgt. J. H. Cobb E Squadr.on "E", has a new CO, Lt. Joseph H. Glasser, who replaced Lt. D.W. Mendelson. Also a new Adjutant, Lt. Ralph D. Putnam, who replaced Lt I. H. Edelman. Ist/Sgt. Chas. D. Hafer is Sk k U II back from furlough. We still have half of original class 43-22 known now as (3-23 and they are due to graduate next Monday. They have the Jimmie Doolittle in their bunch who was featured in a full length story in the Target. Robert Taylor, not of the movies, is also represented in that class. In class 43-22 we had a student named Merlo who had to fire 1800 rounds in one day so that be could complete his training as a student and be eligible to ship the next day at noon, for Aviation Cadets. CpL now Sgt. De, metro Merlo had his own gradu ation and attired in coveralls, dirty face, and hands, fresh from his last mission be received his wings and ing.

June 5, 1943 LINE ENGINEERING Sgt. Wilbert W. (Radio Operator) Coon is still telling us about his. trip to Hollywood with Captain Clark Gable. S/Sgt. Ben Hal ton, that tall, dark and handsome Texan, says, Boy! I'd give my right arm to get to Hollywood --with Betty Grable, Lana Turner and Hedy Lamarr. Coon is always torturing Ben with his tales about Hollywood --telling him how he saw Betty Grable at the beach, Lana at the pre-view, etc. (How would you like a tlansfer to March Field, California, Ben?) Sgt. Joe Sinclair,. the boy. who never gripes --much, is seriously contemvlating marriage. Perhaps this is the reason why Joe hasn't griped so much recently. The girl is a local belle. Good luc, Joe, you'll need it. Cpl. William (Worry Wart) Brawner is still the chief of the gas trucks. Brawner says he wouldn't swap jobs with any man. The only trouble with the .job says Brawner is, I can't get as many 3-day passes as I used to. n Flight Chief Powell sent one of his prize crew chiefs, name.,.. ly, Roscoe Deckard, to Air Corps Supply to get a can of prop wash. Deckard returned with the story that "They said I needed an18t' togetitl" Incidentally, All-American Deckard is one of the best ball players on the -post Billy Bagwell, God's gift to the fair sex of sunny South Carollna, has returned from a stay at the T/F hospital. Billy seems to be in good snape and we're glad to have him back. .There is no doubt left as to how well S/Sgt. Elliott has his motorcycle trained --it brought him home one night while Gene was about three sheets to the wind. n DOVIAKj MILLEt< AND RA NY DAYS Pvt. Doviak, one of the able bodied aerial .engineers, bears a slight resemblance to Captain Gable. Doviak now has a mustache that is identical with the Gable type.
