Several hundred copies of the magazin e are shipped to thHi tield. each month and made available via the Special Service Officer. through the various squadron reading rooms' ; Just the titles of articles in a recent issue make romance itself.

The point is that here is an otticial publication of the Air Forces, issued at considerable expense to better intorm you ot your job and its many problems. And, its a thoroughly masculine magazine ably edited and presenting its reading,material in inter est-provoking style. It isnt a production of ama teurs aft4 tts chock tull ot A-1 art. rts more on the serious side--no cheesecake--but aerial wartare is a serious business and that the topic in which it specializes. tou wont go wrong reading it, anyway.

July 3, 1943 W AC-tivit:ies Two of the ten radio girls, on their first day at Tyndall, ques tioned their we1come to the field when, while walking past the gar den across from the WAAC Company Mess Hall, saw luscious ripe tomatoes being thrown at them. Soon enough, however, they real ized that the tomatoes were being given to them through the generosity of the gardener. Now, they occasionally stop by to get a tomato or time to sniff the scent of the roses. Soldiers, but ladies still, and we like flowers. THE TYNDAlL TARGET YA

NEWS FROM THE Squadron E ci,ara were definitely pouring down on the squadron this paat week eapecially from the first serceant'a office. Congratulation are extended to the former T/S1t. C.S. Hafer upon his promo tlon to maater. A/C'a wer. e certainly exhibit ing aome,of their unusual talents lately! It seems that they thoucht the landscaping needed a little improvement around the barraekal They even went to the trouble of building a new boardwalk. Tbata it boys! YoiJ've gotten into the swing of thincs here at Tyndall Tech. Not at No. J I It's the u s. Republic P-43, often referred to as the "Lancer." Paints of recognition: low wing monoplane with full dihedral; leading edges of wings tapered slightly to rounded tip; trailing edge of wings and elevator e llipti cal; leading edge of tail plane tapered sharply. Landing gear retracts inward. Blast No. 21" It's the Japanese Navy two-seater fighting plane, Type 98 "S." This low wing monoplane is equipped with a single radial engine and has a semi retractable landing _gear. Note that the trailing edge of the very slight dihedral wing forms part of an ellopse. Also that the J .,ading edge of the tail plane is tapered and the trailing edge of elevators are rounded. Squadron 8 I One of our student gunners grad :uating this week, Master Sergeant I';Tathan Spiegler, has had seven and a half years in the Army and 3,000 hours in the air as crew chief and radio man. In civilian life, Sgt. Spiegler was doing experimental work for RCA. UpoJ1 advice of officials of that comp:auy, he entered the Army to go to school at Fort Monmouth, N. J., where he was graduated with a superior rating, receiving and sending code at the rate of 50 words a min ute. He was assigned as personal radio man to a high-ranking Air Force of ficer and has been on several good will missions to Central and South America. One of his proudest possessions in a letter he received from the Presi dent of the United States commend ;ing him for heroism in evacuating tcivilians from earthquake-torn Chile Another proud possession is his ;Picture album, containing more than 2,000 interesting and unusual photo graphs from the interiors of Central and South America. Now di11ing up bhe weekly digs and dirt. Everytime A/C Cock rill opens his eyes in class there is a broom waiting for him. Who waa the gadget that skipped reveille formation the other morn ing and ade the huge opening in the ceiling? Could the student officers be peeved cadets for singing the Second Lieuten ants Are At It Again. If not, why were they halted by a passing field official and requested to aing The Air Cadets Are At It Again. Kenrich's gal friend is no sand hog, but is working under pressure! Braggart A/C Kaplan doeant mention his shooting score anymore! Could it be that the buck he lost to Kirschaum has quieted him down. If A/C Bur atein keeps up with .those hot lettera, we vouch he will be married by proxy. Doran, shhh, he' a atill an eager beaver, Hea atill wondering how Dixmore eked out four points to beat him in the -laat ex8111. Who s face was red? AjC Kaplan's heart was in hia mouth while out on one of the ranges, we wonder if it was due to trigger itch. A/C Pat Healy wishes he would get a slice of his own cake. Better put in an other order, Pat me boy. He holds a permanent technical sergeant rating and a temporary 1--------------------r-----------------..... master rating. He's been in eight What sgt. stood at a corner in Panama City and asked the passing girls if they were from Weatern Union? Can anyone identify the young lady that was walking with Qpl. Moley and Pfc. Livingston in Panama City? Waa Windys Sunday night date a real WAAC Of fleer or was he just lciddinv The boys would like to know. Miller Todd isn't like the rest of the boys as he gets blottod on three bottles of 'Rec Hall Beer. Will someone tell Bruce Ryan he'd have to have bugs in the head in stead of where he had them in order to get in Section 8 The boys of Squadron E still think that the boys in Squadron F are a bunch of Jerks regardleas of laat weeks incident. No personal reflections, 'fellows. Squadron A Squadron A spent a busy week-end biddi11g farewell to the class 43-26 and welcoming in the class of 43-32, and a fine looking group of men they are, even if they do say so them selves. The instructors also spent a hectic two days "boning" up on their rets. We now have quite a little group of "turret specialists" in Squadron A. Some fun, eh fellows? To the class of 43-32 -You will' Jl;lend the next six weeks with us. will b e times when the going IS but remember your instructQI: is trying to turn out the best gunners he can and the things he does, though they may seem wrong you, are for your own good Give h1m your wlfole-hearted cooperation and your stay at Tyndall will made much easier. We all wish good-luck through school. Squadron F The "Boston Bombshell," Cpl. De laney, is back again from furlough and once -again his familiar voice rings above the clatter of the coke bottles as he announces "business is business." We've heard a lot about six-rhan football teams and as yet have. not seen this innovation. But Cpl. John M. Wilkerson was an all-state right end on a six-man squad in Oklahorna. We like the "military manner" of the new W AAC group which march es by Squadron F singing the "Strip Polka" with gestures. One passerby remarked, "Well, I've seen everything now," but he was wrong. First came the Dutchmen, then the French, then the Cadets, then t.b.e Waacs and finally, we understand, after only a year and a half of activ ,ity, Tyndall Field is going to the dogs. That new ruling abotit neckties is a very welcome change, but news reaches us that tj'le ties must be kept on your person -at all times. In other words we wear them in the _rear,' right pocket, now, fello's. Kadet Kapers Here are some recent convers(\-. tions hereabouts: Big Little Deal IKichincoe): "Let's go over and meet those Wa.acs." Little Big Deal (Cogger): "Let's. sit tjght and play hard to get." Mis Deal (Casey): "Let's have another round of beer.'' PERSONALITIES:.. "Peg Leg''' Hartman, the man who went to breakfast. The first shillalah ever to cu .fro m Ireland was whittled from A C Duff Hanafy's family tree. Duffy's post war aims are the revival of Tammany Hall, nickel beer and free lunch. -A/ C "Gabby" Ha-lpern : Headline in the Beacon, Hempstead, N.Y. 'GI NURSES WEAR PANTS: O!l.,Y. Skunk Hollow Well, here it is another week at the ole Skunk Hollow. We do believe tbat the Gulf has moved up to, and through, the Skunk Hollow area. Several subs and large fish have been sighted off one end of the ordjrly rdom porch. Capt. Rummel has thought several times of bringing his boat but decided the waves were too large and couldn't attempt it. It seems that the ole Hollow is the resting place of the perman ent personnel; SO men from Tyn dall Field were assigned here to go through school at the rate of three a week. Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye, does anyone have any ABC or T for S/Sgt. Kempner and his olds as he averages ten to the mile in that nest little job of his Pfc. Shellnut has finally arrived from the Dept. of Training and will no longer be able to snow that little de-icer, Miss Fay Pfc. Vickers left our little Hollow for Patterson Field, Ohio. .r.. Sgt-. George (Worrybi rd) Carter has a new job in the squadron as chief clerk, and believe me it's a job here in this squadron T/Sgt. Dison was made first ser geant. Congratulations, Dison. Of course he looks like a Zebra, butthen they seem to fit his sleeve just right. Squadron C The students of Flight Four, had their first good view of the mighty metropolis of Panama City Saturday night. TjSgt. Horn is going around muttering never again (not til the next time)T/Sgt. Hall, They sold -us a two-bit steak for a buck and a quarter (they saw you coming, men) SjSgt. Lateen, At that price, they must hav!! sold me the glass too, (he'still has it). SjSgt. Juneau was seen cutting the rug on the USO dance floor. Gargantua was seen taking in a blood and thundeL western. and later seen with the Navy! (howa al;>oot that) From now on, Barracks 4 will be .,knowna The House of Hangovers! -Pv.t. Ivan Hallock airplane accidents, but flying is his "one love" and he always comes ba.ck for more. Recent changes in our officer perSQnnel: Lt. David H Goldbold, Jr., adjutant and supply officer; Lt. Wil bur B Baptist, flight instructor; Lt. Russell J. Hertz, flight instn-1ctor. -Sgt. E Leber. Squadron D Squadron D--;Tojo's jinx-is slight'ly off the beam these days in the landscaping around the area. What's the matter, boys, too many Waac to distract you? Speaking of Waacs, the students, believe it or not, seem to be making better headway than the permanent party. Thompson and Ma:rx excluded, of course. Sgts. Blanchard and Morgan were taking a stz:oll the other day and they stopped in to say hello. From. the looks of things they'll soon be in the pink and back to work. It's been too long to have you boys away, so hurry out of the hospital. Blanchard did have a strange light in his eye, though, when we saw him. All he say was, "That does it! From now on I bleed for no one. They can see the chaplain.'' We wonder what he meant. Sgt. Sol Haber finally came back, although in bad shape. He took unto himself a life partner and we wonder when the new boss will fol low him down. For a change, the students actual .ly enjoyed a class here. No fooling, the class in Tactics as given by Sgts. Wright and Coburn mad,e the students quiet to the point of rever ence as they listened wide-eyed to the first-hand information. Cpl. ToiTf Murphy, Section 15, was indeed a pleasant surprise to the topkick. They both were inducted together up in Yankeeland and are neighbors. They haven't seen each since that day and Murphy : he took Thompson home after they ,sampled "Joisey Beer" together. .Was it 3.2?

They also keep tab on "PT" time -that's why /they're so well liked.by all the boys. The dance at the new hangar was a huge success, and one of the most im:>ortant reasons why 1 t was so is because Sgt. W.A. Evans didn't waltz around the floor or sing with the band, Let's have more of these dances --in the harigar. They' re enjoyed by all, ttieyi re great mrale boosters and they certainly break the monotony. Mi\..10 R PROBLtM What will SjSgt. ncrashn Elliott do if he ever is sent to combat?
