NO TIME FOR SABOTAGE The United States today is turning out more ru.rplanes than all the rest of the world comb:inedo This was the conviction expressed by President Roosevelt at a recent press conference in which he estimated 1944 production at one billion, 417 million pounds of airplanes of all types. It's the job of the Anny Air Fbrces to see that these planes reach their final objective. To do this pilots l!llSt be trained and the planes must be flown to th. e advance posts where they are needed. Sabotage of this program cannot be tolerated any more than can sabotage be tolerated in the factory or in the mine. Accidents, we lmow, are the worst enany agent we have in our midst. Accidents are the saboteurs which destroy morale anu cause rejoicing in-the enemy camp. '\\hat causes accidents? In 70 percent of all accidents the pilot erred in some way. Most such errors w ere the result of p.1re carelessness. The pilot may have the courage of Superman, the :intelligence and the training of Joe Louis, but unless he concentrates those talents on the job at hand--the intricate task of flying his plane, h e and his plane may reach the Berlin or Tokyo target. Failure to check weather, running out of gas, landing with wheels up, flying too low while dOing acrobatics, failure to secure safety belt, and failure to check parachute are good examples of carelessness. Don't let carelessness cheat you from playing a part in final victory. SUNDAY WHAT WE CHOOSE IS WHAT WE ARE Creation's Lord, we thee thanks That this thy world is incomplete; That battle calls our marshalled ranks, That work awaits our hands and feet; That thou has not yet finished man, That we are in the still,-As friends who share the Maker's plan, As sons who know the Father's will. Beyond the present sin and shame, bitter, crul, We see the vision flame, The blessed of the What the delay, And still with foes must cope? It us that for which to pray, A field for toil and faith and hope. Since what we choose is what we are, And what we love we yet shall be, The may ever shine afar,-The will to win it makes us free. --TI'Hliam De li'itt Hyde B: 00 A.M .... Mass WEDNESDAY 12:15 P.M ..

S NEAR TOP IN L I FE INSURANCE RECOOD Ninety-four percent of Tyndall s enlisted men are now c a r rying Government Life Insura nce policies, according t o figures rei eased by Lt. George L. Lasker. The figures were compiled as of July 20, 1 943. The Post Insurance Officer also revealed that the average policy purchased totals $8400. According to the figures, tw o Tyndall organizations, the Canaries and the Altitude Tra i n i n g unit, have subscribed 100% 0 t her organizations ranking high in percentage of subscrip tion are Finance, 97.8%; Z e b ras, 96 .8%; Aviation Squad r o n, 96.6%; and the Bluebirds, 9:5. 9 % The Zebras lead the "average policy" group with $9420 as the mean insurance per man. (Complete figures are shown o n the right.) MY FAVORITE PHOTO Above, left, is the favorite photo of Pvt PRESLEY W MANGUM, c le r1< in the Student 1 s (}ff ice. Our association with Pvt. Man has been strictly on the business side. We might even go so far as to say that he is the Target's biggest customer. And by way of explanation we'll add that each Mangum comes over to the Target "plant" and picks up the 500 copies which are tri buted to the student gunners. Mangum hai Is from Greensboro, N.C., and is 20 years old. The above likeness of him was snap while attending country school in 1930, when our hero Was a fu I I seven years of age. Following his graduation from : Greensboro High School where his extra-curricular activities were centered on the two llli le run in track meets, Mangum obtained a 1 position as clerk with the Duke. Power Co. He entered the Army on Nov. 2, at Camp Croft. Shortly after a transfer to Ft Bragg for classification purposes, he found himself assigned to Tyndall via "Skunk Hollow." Md as a typical example of "wishful! thinking" we offer Mangum's own description of himself: "Easy going, taking thi ngs as they come. Never gets in a hurry, unless taking off on furlough to visit Miss Jackie Moffett at Mad ison H C.
