SEEKING THRILLS IN THE AIR I was one of six cadets picked by the commanding officer, Section III, Kelly Field, Texas, to fly for the news reel cameras. That night I wrote my girl: "Honey, you keep a sharp eye in the local movie house and you'll see how yours truly is going to fly against the Japs." We were disappointed when we were told that all the camera men wanted were shots of formation flying along the hangar line at about 150 feet altitude. The formation consisted of two elements of three planes, with the second element stepped up and echeloned to the right. I flew the left wing of the element. As we approached the camera, I thought: "This is a pretty tame show we're putting on for the people." I eased my plane a little closer to the tightening the formation to provide at least one thr 111. Something happened, perhaps it was a gust of wind around the hangars; anyway my plane swerved toward the leader. My wing-tip struck his elevator. The nose of his was knocked in the air. "My God, we're. going to pile up," I thought. But we di9n't, due to the alertness of the second e l e m ent leader, who pulled his element out of danger. If he had been a shade slower, six planes might have collide d in mid-air and we'd really have had something for the news reels. Whe n we got to the ground, the leader said: "You were pretty cute weren't you? You just about cost this country six badly needed pilots, not to mention the planes. Or perhaps I should say you nearly cost us only pilots because maybe you won't get your wings." ONE KORE ROUND James J. Corbett was once asked what was the one greatest thing about fighting or boxing. His repLy is a cLassic. "fight one round. 11 Tihen your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one mpre round. Tihen your nose is bLeeding and your eyes are bLack and you are so weary that you wish your opponent wouLd crack you on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round. Remember that the man who fights one more round is never whipped. Army men could profit much from the cLassic response of Jim Corbett. Tie need the courage of fighters at aLL times. If we aLLow discouragement to creep into our Lives, our s ervice is of Little use to our country. There are many things that ay get us down: being away from home, tough details, thoughtLess companions. Remember this is wartime, and even though you may not feeL in the best of spirits, try to t.i.iJ:.! One more round. A word of discouragement might destroy the spirit of a squadron -or of the men in your barracks. Pry to keet smiling no matter how difficult it might be. God gives us our faces; we give ourseLve s our expressions. A sourpuss is made, not born. Tihen the goi ng is hardest, fight one more round and you' 1 l be a wi.nner.

John Price, stationed at Camp Santa Anita, Calif., spoke out of turn not long ago and had to walk 92 miles from his company's desert bivouac to headquarters back in camp. He boasted that he could hike back to the camp almost as fast as he could ride, set ting the time at 30 hours. His e.o., a literal minded man, heard him and ordered, "Start walking, soldier." Carrying a strip pack, gas mask and canteen, Price reported to the C.O. just 28 hours following his boast. Price said that he ate two two apples, three pieces of pie, two and a half quarts of milk, two quarts of coffee but only a half canteen of water. He smoked 29 ettes and chewed three packs of gum. That evening, he played baseball and after the game he ran around the former famed race track for an Wott'a guy for the Infantry! Robjns Fjeld News) OVER 100 MILLION V-MAIL LETTERS SENT IN YEAR Since the inception of V-Mail service a year ag o more than 100,000,000 of the letters have been sent and received, the War Department announced. The first V-Mail letter was mailed from an overseas point to the U.S. A few days later the initial one from the u.s: was sent out. In one year of service, 50,000,000 photographed on film, have been sent overseas; 30,000,000 have been sent to the U.S. and the remaining 20,000,000 letters were sent in their original form.

Mangum's chief claim to fame, in addition to aiding Captain Tannen in setting up the field's efficient classification section, is the fact that he was a member of the first group of unfortunates to "serve timew in Skunk Hollow before being admitted to Tyndall proper. Hamlet, North Carol ina, gave up Mangum to the armed forces in January, One week !fter his Induction he was assigned to this field and five months later everything was so well under control that he per111itted himself to be persuaded into. writing the first "Taler" colu111n for this paper. However, this "Winchell ingw took up too much of his time and he was forced to lay down his typewriter and wrap his tale telling talent in moth balls early this Spring. Previous to induction, Mangum served as secretary to the surgeon at the Ft. Bragg, N.C., station hospital. Experts guess his age to in the vicinlty of 25 years, since he refused to divulge that pertinent information. Mangum's interests are varied, but we bel leve that he is partial to classical music, juicy stories and classification records. His hairsuite has probably caused him more discomfort than anything else, for on several occasions members of his staff and Personnel Tyndallettes have pooled pennies turned them over to him ,as a hint to get a haircut. And while' on the subject of haircuts, we must admit that the above picture does little justice to our former columnist. The photo is of the type common! y referred to as a "snow job. w Mangum does not fly, except off the handle, on occasions, and the only reason cal ling the "snow job" is because Mangum probably i ritended to use it to foe I his staff into getting up another kitty f _or a clipping. Prisoners Want Chance 'to Study INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ALNSl -American prisoners of war in Gennany want to improve their time by studying for post-war jobs, and have asked The American Legion to send them information for that purpose. Staff Sergeant Joe A. Dillard, Air Corps, initiated the idea in a letter from the German camp where he is a P. W., to the national headquarters of the Le gion. Sgt. Dillard is making a survey of the Americans in his camp to see what subjects they want to pursue, and the Legion is planning to get text books to them if there is any way it can be done. Sgt. Dillard is the ranking American non-commissioned officer in the camp, which is for non-com prisoners exclusively. The head non-com is a sergeant from the R A_ F. Part of Sgt. Dillard's letter to the Legion is as follows: "I am writing this letter on be half of my fellow American prisoners of war concerning our post-war problems. Under present we know of no better organization to turn to than The American Legion, as we are all potential members of this organization and many of us have fathers or other relatives in the Legion at present. "The problems that confront us seem to be divided into two phases -first, the maintenance of health and efficierlcy in the present environment and, second, preparation for dealing with problems concerning our future. B eing prisoners of war, we have certain advantages over other members of the armed forces. There is opportunity to re think one's scale of values, and if we had the proper material there would be opportunities to undertake new lines of study or to continue old ones for which time is lacking in ordinary life A citizen of Illinois who is in the armed forces can substitute the signature of his commanding officer for that of a notary public on documents transferring pr"perty.

Page 6 THE TYNDALL TARGET NEWS FROM THE Kapers Aviation cadets of Squadron A roared into their fifth and next-tolast week Monday and really began sweating out the week of machine gun work and the final week of airto-air. Here's what some of them were doing-Grover 1 Pappy) Perkins was still t alking about the ride a "hot" pilot gave him w hen he hitched a spin in a n AT-6 recently. Seems the H P thought he could make Perkins' stomach turn over and he almost did. N i ckna mes that seem to stick include Elme r McGough' s "Turret Head" and Joe Roberge's "Skippy." Incidentally, Roberge turned in one of the weirdest performances of any reported o n any of the ranges when h e missed a ll 25 birds in one round of turret skeet, then turned around a.nd hit 23 fo r 2 5. Shed a tear for Robert E. Nichols. Recently h e got his first gigs since he entered the cadets. And that covers a period of about fi v e months. Pete McKone is the little man with the big c igar. Maybe planning to b e a p olitician. About a dozen of the squadron members went out and caught themselves something good to eat Sun day. They hired a boat, pulled some mighty good fis h out of the gulf, the n came back to Panama City and had them p r epared at a restaurant. Sometimes one wonders w heth e r the cadets form a mar ching unit or a g lee club as they move down the street. Leadership for many of the catch y selections is prov id e d b y vocalist Edgar Nevins.
