That was the order of the day in early 1942 and all over the country Army Air Forces Flexible Gunnery Sdlools were being geared to fill that order. Gunners to be trained, five weeks at Tyndall, Harlin gen, anywhere, silver wings and then to other fields for combat crew instruction and overseas. Five weeks to tum them aut, qualified gunners-we and this morning we have our answer. The flexible gunnery course, indeed flexible, has now been extended to seven weeks, instruction is predicated on the basis of actual combat conditions and leaves no margi n for error but could the results have been better?

Dispatches to the New York Times told the story of the air battle. Flying from Adak, in the bleak Aleutians, the Liberators delivered a smashing blow at the big enemy base in the archipelego whic'R stretches north from Japan itself. En route home, they had to fight their way through a cloud of float Zeroes. Limping on three motors, one ship was five miles behind the others. 'The boys' told me the Zeroes were coming up, the pilot said, 'so we dove for the clouds which were about 1,!1)0 up ... The Zeroes stayed with us for about 45 minutes. Sgt. David L. Carter, of Bonham, Tex., the belly gunner, told of shooting down one of the attackers. 'He came in on tail, but low, and I got on him at about 1,000 yards. He had opened r,rp un us with h1 s cannon from about i. SOJ. T saw my tracers going into his engine.

'I first._ ___ _... __ .;... ________ ...,_ ______________ spotted him when he was a mile or so to the left and below us. He was climbing for altitude and made two spirals and we could see he was going to make a frontal attack. I threw up the board and grabbed my gun. I am r .ight in the nose, you know, with the bombardier. He came in from about 45 degrees to the left and almost head on. Lt. Arthur said he could see two machine guns firing at their plane as the Japanese pilot drove in, 'but all he did was put a slug in our dead engine. I wa1 ted until he was up close and then fired one long burst at him of about 15 or 20 rounds. I could see my tracers going in and then a trail of smoke coming .out. He peeled off about 100 feet in front of us, did a wing-over and started climbing. I though t sure I'd missed him but I must have got ten a feed line because as he stBrted climbing he just blew up completely. There w as this big burst of flane and then about five of plane falling to the water where they burned.' Three other Zeroes were shot down by men in other planes of (-t}Jft group. GUNNERY STUDENT STRIPS, REPAIRS GUN IN ROUGH AIR Did you ever try to dismantle an alarm clock and put it back together, on a roller-coaster? Think it's impossible? Student gunners can do better than thatJ The other day at the Flexible Gunnery School at Las Vegas, Nevada, a pilot took a student gunneryup in a formation to fire at an aerial target. When they came back to the landing-ramp, the pilot told the follow1ng story: 'After the boy had fired a few rounds, his gun jammed. Had a mallunction. So I dropped out of formation and circled away from the firing area. 'We cruised around for about five minutes. No signal from the gunner. Then ten minutes. Still no signal. I tried to get him over the inter-phone, but I guess he couldn' t hear me. Just once in a while I'd hear him cuss back there. 'When we'd been out of formation for 15 minutes, I decided to find out what was going on. I sort of wondered if he'd lost .is gun out of the ship, maybe, and was trying to figure out some way of breaking it to me easy!' 'So I radioed another pilot to drop down over my rear and tell me, what the boy was doing. In a few seconds, that pilot told me what I nearly went into a stall. The gunner had stripped his gun clear down, and had its 200and-some parts all over that cockpit--in his lap, in his pock.-, ets, even in his teeth! Those guns have more pieces than an alarm clockl 'Mw he didn't lose half of the stuff in that rough air I can't figure out. But he got that gun together again. And. oy God, when we got back into the firing area he lined his sights on that canvas, tickled the trigger and shot that target to shreds! The gunner's only comment was, fixed it sooner if I d taken my gloves off.' VARIOUS FIELD FUNCTIONS TO BE AIRED OVER WDLP A new series ot radi o programs which will give WDLP l i s t eners a clearer concept of Tyndall's part in hastening the Axis' d ownfall is scheduled to commence during the ,first week of September. According to S/Sgt. S t eve Lib by, T/F radio program director, plans are being made whereby 15 to 30 minute vis! ts to variom. Tyndall departments, such as the ranges, Link Trainer buildi ngs, hangars, etc., will be b r oadcast over the local radio statim. Under consideration at present is an arrangement whereby the post Military and Concert Band will be heard in a half-hour show for one week, with the following week devoted to an on-the scene broadcast of a Tyndall ac tivity. lf such an arrangement p r o v e s unfeaslbie, it i s possible that the programs will be recorded and broadcast i n the evening from the recording. Teclmical details o t the pro gram are being worked out by the P.R..().. with the cooperation of the Post Signal Office and the WDLP mansgement. Scripts will be written by S/Sg.t.

Con gratulations to Lt. Doyle upon his very recent marriage at the post cha-peL We all wish Lt. and Mrs. Doyle the best of everything .. Sgt. Bittner is flashing his newly acquired S ;Sgt. stripes around the &quadron. A former instructor of Squadron E, Sgt.

The many complaints going around the squadron about not. being able to get your ears lowered can now be withdrawn. Cpl. Lam bert is dishing out free haircuts -' of course there is a slight cover charge ... Giordano was shaking in. his boots when called up to the P X by the Captain. However, the outcome sure was a big surprise to h .im. Instead of getting the usuaF "reaming," he was gifted with a felt pennant of his home state. By the way, if anybody wants to take a look at a $197 towel, Giordano has one. What has P F C. Gillespie got that the other boys don' t have -spending .most of his leisure time at the Officers Club. Will he please tell Futhey and Gurski how to play tennis. Futhey wants a chance to wear his officers uniform with matching bars. If anyone is inter-. ested in l etters dripping with "mush" -you know the kind you read about -well, Sgt. Stockers' got them. Yeah, man! Kadel: Kapers Many of us are wondermg why the students of the. Bendix turrets were suddenly changed to Martin, and vic. e : versa. This is easily explained. The answer is so simple you'll kick your self for not having' thought of it. .You see, originally, the Cadets were divided into two groups; Martin men and Bendix men. The Bendix men were given the Martin turret, and the Martin men the Bendix. turret Then the Bendix men who were. studying Martin turrets (thereby be coming Martin men) were shifted to Bendix turrets. The change made the new Martin men Bendix men. This was done so that the original Bendix men who just became Bendix men again and are now studying Bendix turrets will know the Bendix turret when they fire the Martin in Air to Air practic e. The CCC boys (Clerkin, Cohn and, Cohen) are cordially invited to at tend a series of three evening get" togehers this week. The classes may be dull', but their precense will be a novelty. The peculiar odor whir:h comes from the small building behind the turret maintenance sheds has been the source o f comment. Decency for bids our printing most of these re marks, but there is one rumor which ought t o be squelched. THAT BUILDING -IS NOT THE STORE .HOUSE FOR CADET MESS. It is a fe rtilize r warehouse.

( 1943 'rHE TYNDALL TARGET Page 7 Sub-Depot Squadron F Cellar Flier$ Ex-Stock-Tracer H B. Mays is now Pvt. H. B Mays and he's been sent way up North, which, in the o ld-fashioned jargon, is several axle greasings away. His address is on. the hangar bulletin board, or, if you prefer you can obtain it from a cute little brunette in Post Personnel of fice. At ease. H B.! Warning! Stay away from that little timekeeper in Room 90 T It took her two whole days to get us a pink timecard, but after one smile from her all was forgotten and fo.r given. Misses E. Tiller and Frances Ar nold, of the Technical Order Depart ment, are planning on asking for a transfer to Canada (they heard it on the sly that there were a lot of wolves up there). We thought it was Alaska instead of Canada. Ruth Connell, of the Planning Sec tion, admits. that the Coast Guard has extra priority on her dates. But Jean Bush, of the same section, goes her one better and says her dates to the Navy are a ll on an emergency basis, which is even higher than ex tra high priority! Miss Alice Birdsong was hostef's Wednesday night at a little party honoring Misses Lorraine Borschel !!nd Julia Carter, and Sgt. and Mrs. David Knowles. Mrs. Klaris Rose and Miss Helen Tiller are new employees in the In ventory department of supply. Glad to have you around, girls! Mrs. Freida Cunningham, another of our employees in supply, is on de tached service in Mobile, learning how to operate the addressograph machine. We f in a ll y have some news about our students. (We can a ll the news we can get, fella's, so let's get busy for our column, and bring in those interesting stories.) We have two brothers in Class 43-37, Donald G. Gardner and Law rence E. G ardner, both who are pri-. vates first class. Their home town in Arapahoe, Nebraska, and they were both farmers before coming in to the army. They are both single, and Lawrence is the oldest, at 20 years of age, while Donald is 19 They both came in the army togeth : er. They received their basic train ing at Atlantic City, N. J., and from there they went to Roosevelt Field, N. Y for their schooling as Airplane Mechanics. They hope to stic k to gether after finishing Aerial Gun nery School, and plan to go back home when this war is over to take care of their farm. Pfc. Martin H Neuhaus does not do much talking, but when he does, he has some interesting stories to tell. He was in Cologne, Germany, : in the earl y part of 1939. His father and mother, who are both in the U S. A., had a huge pudding factory back in Germany. But due to the :r"azi regime, they lost everything. Martin beat his folks over here by one week, and while he was in Eng land saw service with the British Medical. Home Guard. His father is very happy to be in the United States and is glad to have his free 'dom and be able to make a living in the good old U S. A. S jSgt. John T Morgan had an ex citing time Saturday night at the Dixie-Sherman Hotel. Did you get ma. d, John, w hen the chair was pulle d out from under you? Sgt. Pistone, do you still think that you can set your watc h by the elevator floor indicato r a t the DjxieSherman? It woul d h a v e been ni ce work if it co uld be done. We are all surpnsed t o know that Sgt. Townsend, who hail s from the big state of Vermont, used to be the c hampion yo-yo player of that state. How about a demonstration, chum? Lt. Florence is now o n his way to school again, and we wish him all the lu c k i n the world at his stati on. Lt. Justice, welcome to Squadron F ," and keep Flight 4 on the ball; you should know the songs that they sing, as they are still the best group of singers in the Squadr on. Barracks 407 won the inspection again Saturday, but it was very close between them and barracks 430. All the barracks wee in very ,good shape, and we congratulate a ll of the class for the clean barracks -that they had. Guess 407 wanted to go to town again, as they had the opportunity of going the week before, and they made sure they went again. .Hoping that the rest of the barracks get in the game next week, and can strike out 407, althouf'h we are nroud of the swell .iob that they are doing. W1th all the hustling and bustling gomg on around the Squadron area, we are starting to make tfie place look like home sweet ho.me. Shovels have been flying, and r akes have b 'een doing their part. Trucks are br;n.,.;n.,. the cJ;rt. with our own. versatile Cpl. O 'Bara :1.s sunervisor. After missing last week's issue. there's plenty to write about t hi s week; and even more that would probably b e censored anyway, so here goes with the high spots. _First, a bouquet to the m e n 6f the 25th who won h alf" of the flag for inspection a couple of weeks ago. Ask Sgt. Utb anic why we didn t win the other h a l f (if h e won't tell, Hast ings will, gladly). Speaking of inspections, Pvt. (Yardbird) Kammerer enjoyed a siesta on the beach last Sunday morning from 9 till 11. He made hurly trips to the office the next three days. There's an unconfirmed rumor go ing around that Groover was seen out with h is own wife last Saturday night. Cpl. Mazur, after going out for an evening with T ;Sgt. Hill and his se lect friends, came in with a perfect set of teeth prints on his bac k. Mazur vows they wer e left there by an irate dog. Ripley would pay a thou1 and bucks for that dog's molars. Sgt. Mason had been packed five days when h e finally got that fur lough. H e w ill probably spend first week explaining things to Mrs. Mason, and the second promising not to do of the things he was explaining. Wonder w h y S /Sgt. McGraw's wife gave him a wedding ring last week? oShe's making him wear it, too. Since we've been on these rugged shifts, Cpl. Boggs hasn' t been abl e to get into town so much, but he' s sure made that phone sound like a slot machine. Last, and nearly the ,least thing around here, is Miss Lois Carter, of Maintenance. She plays the piano like nobody's business and is kinda cute when she smiles, which is ALL THE TIME. Brown Bombers E vidently Pvts. Rasmussen and Smitty never heard of the old say ing about "taking money from a poor, defenseless woman." Two more Montgomery passes and Pvt. Durham w ill be applying fo r senarate rations. -I. M.

Page 8 THE T UALL TARGET LEADS TYNDALL'S BOXING HOPEFULS SGT. MELVIN ALTIS, veteran of four years as an amateur and 9 years as a professional pugilist, will guide the destiny of Tyndall's ring men. The sergeant is a native of Roanoke, Va. A former Southern Lightweight champion, now in the Welterweight class, Altis has kayoed 56 opponents in 128 professional fights with such nationally known boxers as ex-champ Al Singer, and Joey Capisi, Jack Ryan, Tommy M cGove r n and Toots ie Basharra. He has been knocked out thrice, by Rya n Basharra and McGovern. His 128 matches add up to losses, three K.Q.1s, six draws, and 108 fights won, including 56 by the knockout route. Sergeant Altis has been in the Army a little more than a year, and has spent most of that time as box_ing coach of the various posts at which he has been stationed. In commenting on the boxing set-up at Tyndall, Altis stated that, There are a lot of m ighty good prospects here, with a 1 ittle training, we can have some swell inter-squadron and inter-post matches t his winter." At present, the boxing program is correlated with the physical training sessions held throughout the day; however, Lt. John R. Gueder, physical training instructor for Area #2, announced that upon the completion of the new post gymnasium a regular period each day will be given over to boxing instruction and w o rkouts in the new building.

The Tornadoes won, 6-5, but not t.mtil they had $erved up a thrilling 12-inning exhibition of baseball that featured teamwork and a desire to win that could not be denied. Never during the 12 long imings was either team more than one run ahead of the other, so evEn l y were they matched. The Eglin Flyers had a well balanced squad both afield and at the plate. Zachell, who pitched the entire game fur the Eglin men, never weakened t.mtil the 12th, when he walked the first man up, and tten allowed two to fill the bases. With ever)' one in the taking up the vic tory chant, Zachell faced Leftfielder J'ackrel and tried desperately to offer up -"nothing good." However, he tried too hard and walked five pitched balls, thereby forcing in the winning run. Lefty Southard started on the mound for Tyndall, anrl although relieved by Donoway in the 7th' received credit for the victory. Southard yielded nine hits which Eglin. converted into two runs dur ing his six and a half inning stint. DONOWAY RELIEVES SOUTHARD run lead, and Tyndall countered with another run in their half to keep the gam e even up. Brow n the first Tornado batter in t h e 10th, let loose with his l ongest hit of the season, a sharp l ine drive into deep right center, good for three bases. "Brownie" romped mme w1 th the tying run as Nick Orange, the next batter, singled into left field. In' the 7th, after Southard had walked the first batter, forced the second to ground out, and then gave up a s:lpgle to put runners on first and third, a board of strategy formed around the mound and it was decided to send Donaway in to relieve Southard, who was weakening under the hot Stn. There was no scoring by either side in the 11th, and Eglin went down in order in the top of the 12th whenthe first man grounded out, pitcher to first; the ne-xt doubled; and the third batter ltned out to Jackrel in right field, who threw swiftly to second bas e to catch the runner starting for third and thereby COJtlllete a double olav. Keystone sacker of the Tornadoes' 0million dollar infield With one away and the tying and winning runs on base, Donaway promptly struck out the first man to face him on three pitched balls and retired the next batter as he lifted a high fly to Tarrln center field. LEAD SEE-SAWS Tyndall took the lead in the 6th when Hlne s got his first hit of the game and was advanced to second Zachell walked Brown. Jackrel doubled two outs later and then a single by Costigan ac counted for 2 runs, the most scored by either team in any one inning. Eglin tied the game in the 8th on a mighty triple by Centerfielder Early, who scored on a bingle by Catcher Luciano. In the top of the 9th, the Fort Walton men took the lead for the first time in the ball game when they tallied a lone run on a single and a double.

Georgie Case, Mickey Vernon am Jake Powell tear aroun d the bases like scared deer, while Gerry P riddy and Stan Spence never c ould be accused o f dragging ice wagon s behind them. From the stands, it l ooks as i f M anager Elu e g e gives his base run ners free reins, and they can run "lo.henever they wish. As a result, the team steals plenty o f bases, and in one o f the games against the Sox, s peed on t h e bas e p a ths, and s p eed a l one, enabled the Senators, t o triumph. We d on 1 t think they'll catch the Yar.kees in the American L e ague race, but they'll be in second o r third place at the season 1 s e n d. Take our word f o r it.

Jackie, who much disputed feather crown, was knocked out in the round, of a scheduled 15 round bout, by'phil Terranova at New Orleans last Monday It was the second win for Terranova over Callura, but the first was a nontitle affair. We read with amusement where Terranova is ready to iake on 'all comers.' About two months Callura took the lick of his life at the hands of a battler named Tony Costa of Rhode Island. Costa has been chasing Terranova for a couple of years, and now the meeting probably will take place. If it does, don't sell Costa short. He'll be a good short end bet.
