Credited aaterial aay not be republished without prior peraission froa Ca p Newspaper SerTice. In a critical period cbirin[! the last war, while under fire at the front, G. A. Studderl Kennedy, in a letter to his wife, had the followin[! to say in the interest of their son. This letter in its entinety will appear in this column this week and next. "Make him a sportsman. Encourage him to play games and al wayE play the game. Teach him to despise cowardice and never to be afraid of anything or anyone save God. Guard him from vulgarity and snobbishness and never let him speak.contempt-------------------------------luously of anyone or anything except a coward. SCRAP NOT NEEDED Contributions to the nation's scrap drive by airplane pilots are unwelcome. Taxiing accidents are almost without exception the result of the pilot's failure to keep a sharp look around him. While poor visibility is the cause of many accidents attributed to carelessness, there is little for a pilot to move until he is positive that no parked planes or other objects obstruct his course. A pilot should never take-off, taxi, or land unless he is positive that his operations will not interfere with the operations of any otherpilot. While taxiing accidents produce few fatalaties at this field, they nevertheless assume vast importance in damaged equipment, minor injury and loss of fly ing time. No landing is complete until you have taxied and parked on the line, shut off the motor and locked the brakes and controls. Keep your airplane out of thescrap heap. Three Yanks sleeping in North Africa were mmkened by a tremen dous crash not far away. What was l!hat?' said one. Borrbs or 'Ikmbs was the laconic reply. 'Tnank said the third, I thought we were going to have more rain! "Teach him as soon as you can what his body is for, about his owers of procreation, and about the necessity of cleanliness in body and mind. Teach him to tell you everything fbout himself. "Teach him that being a gentleman means using your life to serve and help your fellow men as much as ever you can, and that it is dishonorable to desire only t o make money and be comfortable. rf he has brains, teach him t o use them to lead on to better things. "Teach him to love and revere women. Encourage him to have plenty of girl friends, and to treat them as comrades and never to deceive them. Teach him that the man who deceives a woman i.s a scoundrel and that he must try to live straight." 8: 00 A. M .............. Mass 9:00 A.M .... protestant sun-day School 10:00 A.M .. ..

The 13,000 to be released, it w a s reported, would be students of engi neering, since the Army wants to hold on to its medical trainees and others in highly-tec hni cal categories.

She begins at 5:30 A.M. and is stlll strong when she makes anotrer radio appearance at 11 o'clock at night. Her Tyndall Field audience wonders when she sleeps. More than that, though, they've been wordering what she looks like. So the Target, ever anxious to serve, ob tainerl frcm WWL the photo, -plus some facts about her likes and dislikes. The WWL publicity department comes forth with the information that Sally is 20 years old, five feet one minus shoes, has dee-p blue eyes, brown hair am weighs a 112 -pounds. She loves to dance--especially the rlrumba. At hone, she relaxes by listening to Kostelanetz.records or else trying new jittel' bug steps with her sist.ers. Her favorite pastimes are horsE>-back' riding, watching Bette Davis emote, and sun-bathing. She needs, so the WWL -publicity man says, somebody to teach her to swim. (Private to Sally: We have a very nice bathing beach at Tyndall Field. ) For hobbies, she collects small china objects, dolls and sterling silver jewelry. She was singing with a New Orleans band for fraternity danc es when WWL invited her to audition for a commercial program. Sally was scared to ooath at her first interview-until she started to sing. Asked how she'd like gettill?; up at 5= 30 A.M., she was flabbergasted. The program turned out to be "Dawn Busters. Sally corresponds with the Army, Navy and Marines.

There on the racks a r e the rows of' .50caliber machine gtmS, oiled and cleaned, lying s ide by side. When the mission is c0mpleted and the ships come b ack the gwmer s dismount their guns and bring them in. 1ben! t:heJ" clean tlen careful ly and an.er that the. annarnent men cover t h e m with oil to keep them from rusting. The ccxnbination of cold of the altitude and heat from firing and of moisture makes the guns rust very quickly. Here they lie in oil until a new mission is Corporal Harpold of Dallas is the armament man. He has been in the Army for nine THE TYNDALL TARGF.T years and that time he has sometimes been a sergeant ani sanet1mes a private. Right now he is a corporal. The t:Rat happen to Harpold can happen to anyone. He was a civilian ground crew man for the Flying Tigers in China a little while ago. He knows his guns thoroughly. He has even been a gunnery instruct-or. It would be possible f'or a gold-brick gunner to have his work done by the ground men except that they arent gold brick gunners for very long. If your life and the life of your ship deperrl on those long steel snouts, you are likely to want to see that they are all right yourself. The men bring their oily guns to the work benches. They strip them canpletely and then with clean cloths they go over every part, rubbing and rubbing with new cloths until the cloth shows no sign of oil. It t akes a long time There is no way of doing it quickly. Every pa!'t of breech and recoil action must be dry and smooth. The gmmers of the Mary Ruth come into the gun room for now they have a very delicate operation to perform. They must wipe ever y bit of oil from thetr guns Where they will be flyin g t omorrow at 30,000 feet the temp erature will be at 40 de grees below zero. If any oil is left on the moving parts of the machine guns it will freeze at that temperature the gun will j am and then the "man with the red beard" will ge t in close enough to make his kill and you and your crew will f'ind yourselves in a prison camp, if you re lucky. Sgt. Brown, the tail gurmer, has had his gun jam on the last two missions and he is worried. He has worked over them for hours. He has taken them out on the testing range to fire them and they have worked beautifully. Yet they jammed in the air. This is a mysterious thing. He says: "If they jam again tomorrow I'm going to put in for new guns." There are magics in the air. You get as near as you can to causes with your senses and after that there are things that happen which you can't get near to and yet they happen. You trust accept them because they affect your life and the probability of its continuing. These are things which cause what might stupidly be called superstition. Take Banb Boogie, for instance. She is a good ship but she never gets to a target. And every bit of mechanical skill available has been expended on her. They have even changed her engines. 'llie care of the guns is sl

Right now, the New Y ork Yankees are pacing the Am erican League race with the st. Louis Cardinals holding top berth in the National League. Fans throughout the nation would be pleased, no doubt, to see the Washington Senators beat out the N e w Yorkers t o gain a place in the autumn classic, and this could happen at the rate the Nats are now going. In Flatbush, the D odgers are still the most pop ular team in the National League but fans in other parts of the country think pretty well of the Cards. Sgt.
