Nelson tells us that although Margaret Is an apt dlctaphone operato r and stenographer, he d oesn't lntendtospo/1 the beauty of Panama City for her by allowing her to work if and when he can persuade her to visit here following their marriage. Nelson arrived here from Galveston, Tex., w here he was on submarine patro 1 duty, in June, After several months as an instructor with the department of training, Nelson's ability J handle men by the "Go srow but wield a big stick" method earned him a position as acting "top-kick" of the Bees Earlv this summer, the sergeant's grade became "official" and ev since we've been sitting back and .watching him fight off the tendancy to "chew," wh lch usua 11 y overta.kes ai 1 lozenge bearers.

September 25, 1943 THE TYNDALL TARGE!' P.a e ."f Test That Toughness Of Glass Protects B 24 Gunner One or the quest ions most !requen tly -asked aerial gunners returned !rom combat !s, "How bullet proor is the big glass that protects B-24 tall gunners?" From an AAF' Training Command's mobile training unit at Lowry Field, Colo., last week carne a partial answer. It came in the rorrn or a !irst-hand story told to a member or the public relations section at Lowry Field by two sergeants attached to the mobile training unit, who, back. in December, i942, conducted an informal and unorricial. ;est at the ArmY Air Base at Alamgordo, N.M. 1 The two sergeants, TjSgt. Jul1an c. Teigen, Kenyan, Minn., and S I S gt. Reuben H. Call, Colrain, Mass. had had many an argument about the relative protection arrorded by the bullet proor glass behind which a B-24 gunner operates. One day a B-24, on a routine training nighb, crashed near their base. They heard about ft, and immediately removed the big sheet or glass !rom the tail or the wrecked plane. It was in perrect shape with only a corner slightly chi ppeci. Measuring the glass they round it to be 22 inches high by 19 inches wide by 2 and 3/18 inches thick. "Its !i ve layers were ground !lawlessly," said one or the sergeants, "and you could look through it w1 th perfect Vi'31on." Soliciting the aid or the armament chie! or one or the squadrons at the base, an un-named sergeant, they immedi atelY set up the test. Out to the !iring range went the three researchers. They placed the glass in a vertical position so the projectiles would hit head on. Then, they withdrew to a !iring point one hundred yards distant. using both 30 arid 50 cal. rree !iring machine guns, provided by . ,:-"Is she your benefic'f.,-y?" _/..;' : i &Jr,.J. ,1[\' I .,.

This surp,rised all three sergeants and heartened them to go "the limit" in an e rror' t to discover v.hat it would take to really srnash jthe giass. They loaded the gun 'wfth three armour piercing and two ball projectiles They. were !ired alternately in a single burst. This burst was too much ror the stout hearted glass. The projectiles carved a jagged hole about two inches in diameter. At this point, Teigen and Call relt that they-had settled their ar(9.lJllent. Without much protesting !rom can, they agreed on the con clusion that the glass protecting the tall gunner on a B-24 is re latively sare rrorn 30' and 50 cal. machine gun !ire. To support their stat!3lJient they point to the ronowing !actors: (1) Few hits in combat will be head on as was the case in the test. (2) The glass has ricochet qualities. (3) Chances or being subjected to concen tr!l-ted !Ire on one spot on the glass during combat are very, ver,v remote. (4) Chances or betng subjected to concan tra ted !ire on one -spot !rom the d1 stance used in the test 100 yards-are even more remote. Sgts. Tet'gen and Call teach !ull ma'in tenance or. power turrets to ground creW.s and !light maintenance to !light crews. They are attached Co a B-24 mobile training unit. Both are graduates or the Lowry Field power turret school. Humorous sequel-tQ the story occurred when the sergeants shipped the glass back to p ower turret authorities at Lowry l!:i eld. They packed 1t 'in a case an'd markea it "Glass. Fragile. Handle with care. n The case arrived at the sub-depot at Lowry. curious o!!lcials saw its markings and shook it slightly.

There will be no "doubles" com petition, only "singles." subjec't to call, and will go wherever the war Department decides. * It will be the Yanks and Carda again in this season's baseball classic, the World Series. The first three will be played in New York, atarting october 5, with the remaining contests in St. L ouis. We expect the Mc Carthymen to gain sweet revenge for last season's dismal showing, and whip the Cards in a five game series. our hero no.ne other. than C harley 'Wensloff, young southpaw hurler of the Yanks. He has what Jt takes to stop the Cards. Incidentally, the Yankees have set a new record this season by hitting into 157 double plays, :but all these seem to do is to lull the other fello w into a sense o f false security. * Last saturday in t h e ya l e B owl wayne Johnson or the Eli carried the ball on the first play, s urrered a broke n neck, and was carried orr the field. Last season, this same J ohnson was Harvard's scar back, and gave yale many an x i o u s mome nts during the ann ual game between the two rivals. Despite his injury, however, JOhnson will receive his letter at the end or the current s eason, according to yale orricials, and will be the first man in history ever to win t h e "H n or Ha :rvard * Still on the subject o r racing, it's hard to say who's behind it, but the knock is being put on the Florida horse season, but hard. The rollowing item appear ed in The Blood HOrse magazine concerning allotment o r racing dates to Hialeah and Troptcal parks: "The granting or dates does not insure a winter season in Florida. ManY of the hotels taken over by the armed rorces in t he Miami neighborhood have be e n vacated, and apparently there will be no difficulty about housing winter visitors. But the transportation si tuation, whiCh c losed Tropical p ark before the end or its first meeting last season, and preven \-ed the opening or Hialeah park. is still critical a l tho ugh there have been many indications that the pleasure driving ban in the Eastern States may soon be lifted, Even ir it is lifted, there is no more guar antee that it will not be issued again than there was last winter, that if the ope n they will do so with Mr. I ekes hanging over them."

(You will hear from us---'From Time to Time. ) Well lads and lassies we were. glad to hear that y'all enjoyed our opening brawl held at the 'Wreck' Hall recently. The bouquets are still comin g in and our backs are practically broken from takin' bows, but pour it onwe love it. Hear tell that the 25 or 30 Stalwarts that came over from 'Officer's Row' to pay us a 'short visit' and stayed for thedur ajion had a grand time. You're a ways welcome, Sirs. Now get ready for the grand surprise---that affair was just a little squeak compared to the great big noise you'll hear sometime during the last week of October. Yes, lads and lassies, the Instructors' Club of Tyndall. Field will hold their first Annual Halloween Costume Ball with a door prize 'for the best costum ed gal to be selected by the Entertainment Committee. So come on gals your thinking caps on, grip your scissors firmly in your right hand, get that gleam in your eye and start cut tin' (and I 'don't mean rugs, either). Don't forget folks, watch for the date and details in our next From Time to Time Column, The Flaming Bomb It appears that the Armament' Shop is a terrifically busy place since Lt. Robert T Birney took over the position of Armament Officer. The Ordnance sends the right man to school. Pfc.

Such questions as: "Isn't themail in yet?" and "Do I have a package?" and "Will you let me know when it comes in?" are enough to try anyone's patience. After spending two frantic hours chasing a mouse around his room, Sgt. Luketich gave .up and went to bed. Upon waking he soon discovered that the little fellow had spent the night in bed with him. Is it getting as bad as this for the Medfcs ? One of our dispensary boys must be trying a new angle on the PC belles. He was seen jumping on the side of a very nice blue sports roadster-object: a blonde. We wonder how many Speedy gets that way. The. Medics movie house presented the regular Saturday morning horse opera this past week, but with more interest than usual. It was the first time we had seen that good looking music lover and lover, Romance, on the screen. Such a resemblance! Now we cn:n see why he is runner-up for best looking man at the Dental Clinic. Why is "Gene Raymond" sporting those fancy blue garters these days? When are some of you going to get into the Army? It is becoming a joke around here now that a certain few at last received disciplinary action 2:nd immediately feel as if they are being prosecuted.
