The photo was submitted by Lt. Cleary as his favorite entry In this department. And now, if you can wrest your eyes off the. photq for a few minutes, we' 11 disclose some academic facts about Miss Cleary. She has displayed her terpsichorean ability in the Room of the swank Palmer Ho-use in Chicago, and has appeared with such top-notch bands as Eddie Ouchin's, Skinny En.nis' an d Xavier Cugat' s. In addition to performing personally, Miss Cleary has also taught the finer points of dancing at the Muriel Abbott School; and as a token of her versatal ity, she is rated as a highly efficient private secretary, having graduated frorn the Oe Paul University Secretarial College in Chicago. However, entertaining supper club audiences or acting as a private secretary to the law firm of a retired major general' didnit strike Germaine as being associated closely enough with .the war effort, and 1 ast February she joined' the u.S.

Cal. 30 ball and tracer; cal. 50 ball, armor piercing and tracer; cal. pistol ball; cal. 22 for long rifles; 7-! 8, 9, Chs. fot' skeet; all expendable and ours for tne passing. The freight cars never arrive on cool days--they have an affinity for heat that is almost touching. It is 7:30 in the 1110ming whe n the trucks begin rolling in f rom the Sometimes there are 10, 20 of them, once even 60, but that was a very hot day and the freight cars kept coming in like the .inductees did after December 7, We were hauling all the ammunition In the world and kept wondering what our gunners in Europe. and the Pacific were using since we had all of it here. "Must be borrowing the stuff from the Italians," we muttered and continued our perspiring. It took Ordnance Sgt. Frank Aurigemma, his assistants, Cpl. Steckleber g and Pvt. Arciello and scores of men and trucks, five days to move the rAountaln of ammunition away froiJl Mon.anune.d in the freight yards. When the last car had been emptied and the last truckload safely stored away, someone started to whistle "Praise the Lord and pass the Ammunition." Although a neophyte in the service, that soldier is sporting six woNnd rons today and is wearing that colorful uniform of the Station Hospital's Corp de inval id es, a red bathrobe. "But what do you do on days when there are no cars.riding the rails at the loading station?" "Well, soldier, here it is. Did you ever look close at a gunner--see the hungry look in his eyes? He's waiting to be fed and Ordnance does the lad! ing. In the Ordnance warehouse are three cal. 30 and two cal. 50 linking machines, beating out a terrific tempo from 7 in the morning to It: 30 in the afternoon. Those m achines are as insatiable as the gunners. tt takes hundreds of boxes of ammunition a day to keep them from griping and at the same time, f ill the firing needs of the student gunners at Tyndall and Apalachicola. Ever try opening a box of .50's, soldier? Well, the lid's easy, it's the inner tin that raises hob with your fingers. 1111 bet there.are more c uts and blisters in Ord nance, than bunions in the whole Air Corp s Got 26 myself, with 7 mor e coming in." "So the stuffs 1 inked as fast as T/lt Frank Cappiello's crew can turri it out." Now it's ready for Sgt. Frank Straka! and his men. Theseare the Ordnance artists. For the ammunition Ordnance issues a training field, must have its nose painted, before it can be delivered to the ranges. Red, green, purple, yell ow, orange, and brown -these are t he colors of Ordnance, for each student is assigned a color which makes his firing score identifiable, as the color splurges when a bullet finds the target. When the ammunition is painted and boxed, the crew of Sgt. Leo n Stephens, assembles the individual range orders and turns them over Vit o lngargiola and his brawny truck drivers, who haul it away. So ends the cycle of passing the ammunition at AAFFGS Tyndall Field, Flor i da. Ordnance is essentially, a service organization with mani f old duties. The work is hard and you've got to stay wit h it. Fulfilling the ammuni tion requisites of one of the country's largest Flexible Gunne r y Schools is no sinecure and the capablelooking, hard muscled men of Ordnance w ho take their orders from T/3 Jackson Bennett and his able assistant, Sgt. Anthony Bliznik, a r e indeed worthy of the!r hire. Above: CAPTAIN KEHHETH G.

In most cases, college football will be a thing of the past this year. In the southern part of the country, a few colleges such as Tulane., Georgia Tech and some others will have teams, with the help of Naval cadets. Alabama, Eostorr Cbllege, Harvard and most other big name colleges definite-, ly will not field teams. Fans in the north and middle west will get their football entertainment by watching the semi-pros and oros in action, * Satchel paige, famous negro baseball pitcher, recently came up with a prediction in an As-. sociated press story that colored' athletes will be found in major league lineups within two or three years, and even went so far as to say that some of the negro athletes will given tryouts next spring. This will not be a surprise to fans in other se o tions of the country where they have become accustomed to watching colored youths play on some of the nation's foremost college football teams. The colored ath letes hold a heavy percentage of boxing chBJ;,pionships at the pres ent time, rating from Sgt. Joe Louis on down. In track, negro representatives have more than held their own, even establishing records in various phases of competition. Once they enter ma jor league baseball, they'll give their white plenty of competition in ttabbing the headlines. * Joltin' Joe DiMaggio is joltin' once again. H_e was figured to add plenty of punch to the Air Corps team at Santa Ana (Cal. l but bas been in a slump since doiJiling khaki. (Perhaps it 1 s home cooking.

Despite his efforts, however his team dropped a 6-5 decision to the Kellys of Kirtland Field. * Johnny Beaziey, who them by the Yankees in last year's World Series, still has his stuff, Now a lieutenant in the Air Corps, he hurled for theFt, oglethorpe (Ga.) team last week, fanned 10 and smacked his outfit to a 6-5 win over the Atlanta Naval Air station. * Wilfred "Lefty" Lefebvre, mer Holy Cross ace hurler, is now a regular member of the Washington Senators. In his first start he held the usually heavy--hi St. Louis Browns to five scatter ed hits, and chalked up an easy win. Obtained two weeks ago from Minneapolial where be had been exiled by tne Boston Red Sox, Lefebvre is certain to grab him self some money as the Sen ators are a cinch to finish in the first division. Well always remember Lefty's first big league appearance. He h1F.led for the Red Sox against Chicago, and in his first time at bat in the majors, hammered the ball far and wide over the left field fence at Fenway Park. Incidentally, he's a left hand hitter, so has plenty of power. Tyndall T earn Loses But One Game In 1 7 Starts To Cop Trophy Sutem tri1..111Jlh5 1n 17 starts.

The officers already have won. a trophy, erblan of the league championshlp during the regular season, and have swept through two g811196 of a playoff series for anotller trophy. If the officers win tomorrow, they will be pre sented with their second trophy immediately following the game, and it will be placed 8.1ongside the other in a suitable place on the field. )(anaged by Lt. Herb Edelman, former Brooklyn Prep ltliBinary, the officers swept aside all league opposition as they raced to the pennant. In the early .stages of the se.ason, the tea. 'had several weak spots, but the acquisition of Lts. Jim Bailey for shortstov. Greg Greene for seco.iid base and 'Mot; FreEaiW_., who. is equally at mme at either in-. field or outfield positims, re sulted in a Slllooth working club that clicked frclll the start. The ombination of Lt. Joe Glasser on the mJund, and Capt. Jack Dangler behind the bat, was one hard to beat. Lt. Glasser was at his best when the going was rc:iughest, while Capto Dang ler' s tullet-like throws to the bases brought_grief to many would be base stealers. U. Glas ser, in add! tion to his pitching ability, proved to be one of' tbe best hitters on the te&lll and wound with_ a lulndsome average. Capt.

Bill )(endeloon at third play., ed steady ball throughout the The "good field, no hit, adage proved true in Lt. Cleary's case as he found it difficult to bit his noral stride on the oft'ense during the season, but .his value as a de fensive player more than over cmae his shortcOIIIings as a hitter. Lt. Mendelson was a steady player at the hot while long range hits which boomed off his bat turned lll8l1y close ges into victories for his te-. Lts.
