The Tyndall Target receives aaterial supplied by Caap Mews paper Service, War Dept., 205 E. 42nd St., MYC. Credited aaterlal aay not be republished without prior permission frna THE CLOTH OF LIBERTY The men were ill-clad and through their thin garments the wind bit savagely at blueing flesh. A r&g ged band of Americans, for the greater part in nondescript uniforms, this was the Continental Army in vi"inter camp on the Pennsylvania side ofthe Del aware; in the year of 1776. Many wore the blue and whites of the Regular Army,_ but deerskins and homespun grays were equally favored by the patriots. The British had_ aptly named them "those beggarly colonists," for on the eve of the battle of Trenton the spirits of the men and the very fortunes of the Continental Army were at their lowest ebb. But this first American army in the field was at tired in no ordinary uniform. It was of cloth cut from the pattern of liberty and no price was too high to pay for its wearing. Outnumbered and pitted against the greatness of the British front of battle, "those beggarly colonists" wrote the first page in American history and their pursuit of freeoom came to its appointed end at Yorktown, Va., Oct. 19, 1781. Today, with the British and other allies, we are fighting the stealthy invader in the dim jungles of Pacific islands and are braced jointly against the shock of swift-moving Mark IV's rumbling across the rocky terrain of Italy. Through all the trials of this present enterprise of Mars, our armies have been shoulder to shoulder in the fighting wherever it fell. The uniforms we wear are lent to us by all the miserable peoples of the earth. The weave is the same, differing but slightly in color and dates of delivery. The British accepted delivery soon after the invasion of Poland in 1939--ours were received Dec. 7, 1941, at Hawaii. cloth that has gone into the making is almost indestructible, cried over and bled,for, it came to us, the yet free. In its pockets has accumulated the historr of the times, and the dust of global war lies heavilf in its occurring folds. It is a history of the practised villainy of a few men on the many. A telling of the privation and great suffering that was visited on innocents. A history, terrible and incomplete as it ravels slowly to its end. Yet it has become our hope and the deep prayer of half a world that the day is not far distant which will see the end of all conflict. On that great day will the good and the God-fearing reinherit their whole acres of' peace. And fr.eed of the encumbrances of war, the cloth of liberty will hang in the closet of a man and his family. BACK THE A ACK e BLJY WAR BC;N DS Tnird War Loan In Re 1 i g ion--Courage The great leaders of the world have been religious Washington) Jefferson, Lincoln, and hosts of others were guided by their faith in and devotion t o religious things. Today we are engage::l. in the greatest trial known to mankind) embracing every habitable portion of the earth. All of our wealth) our resources) and our manpower are engaged in the destruction of a force with declared intentions to destroy religion. This crime cm1 not come to pass) and it is for this we have lifted the sword -of battle. We love freedom) liberty and the worship of Him who is the Author of Li'berty. These are the. rrosons for our engaging in this ghastly war. we have no hate for our enemies as men; we extend the doctrine of neighborly love to include even o_u.r enemies. We do make V>GrJ against our enemies1 present evil designs.

Interior decorations for the BLUE BORDER NEW CHANGE IN U.S. INSIGNIA The War Department recently ordered another change in u. S aircraft insignia.. The order required simply that the red border be changed to a. blue one. The present insignia. was adopted several months ago when it was found that the former star in 'signia. was often coiU'userl at a. distance with those of enemy a.il' cra.ft. The latest change wa.s ordered after reports from comb a. t a.rea.s revealed that the reel of the present insignia. is still difficult to distinguish from the orange of Japan's rising sun symbol.

October 2, 1943 Brown Bombers Last week was quilt: a busy week for members of the squadron. On the 20th the members of the new Glee Club m e t for thei r usual weekly rehearsal under the direction of Mrs. Frankie Perry, and on the 22nd they went over to entertain the gunners at Skunk Hollow where they were well received. It seems that this column for the past few weeks. has dwelt exclusively with doings at the Rec Hall or in the P T. area, but it is almost im./ possible to say in expressing our appreciation to the Special. Ser vice Office and others interested. The Rec HrJl is one place on the field that really get.s a play, and Sgt. A. P Barry, of the Physical Training Department, has transformed the area with athletic facilities. On the 23rd, the old juke box again furnished the music for the weekly U S. 0 <;lance, and 6o-"count' em" -60 Service Queens were the visiting guests and E big help in making the affair a success. These dances have been unusually popular for the past th::ee and a half weeks during which the squadron was restricted: The restriction has just been lifted as this is written, and perhaps in the future we will have more news of 1doings in the great metropolis to the west. 1 G. I movies were the order of the .J evening on the 24th, with "SnC>fu" Hall. On the follow-. mg evenmg, Saturday, Sgt. Barry was glad to welcome mo::e than half of the outfit to the new boxing ring, volley ball and badmintin courts, horseshoe pits and basketball surface. Two baseball teams sc,ndwich ed in a game on the diamond between games of touch football. The date is still uncertain, but a formal boxing match during the coming week is to be attempted.

I THE TYNDALL T FROM THE SATURDAY EVENING POST WHAT I AM FIGHTING FOR By SGT. THOMAS N. PAPJ"-IAS I AM fighting for that big white house with the bright green roof and the big front lawn, the house that I lived in before Hitler and the Japanese came into my life. I am .fighting for those two big sycamore trees out there on the lawn where my brother and I spent so many happy and never hours. I am fighting for that little sister of mine, the one in the eighth grade, the one who shed so many tears when her brothers went marching off to war. I am fighting for those two gray-haired grownups who live in that house right now. Those two hard-working and intelligent people who planned the lives of those two boys who went marching off to war. Those two people who fought so hard to give those boys a good education, to keep them well clothed, well fed and clean of body and mind. I am fighting for that big stone church wit}]. its tall, stained-glass windows, its big organ with the magnificent tone, its choir, its people who were always so glad to see us. That big stone church with its great principles and ideals, its irreplaceable position in the community, its educational program for the young, its living testimony to the Creator of us all. I am fighting for that big brick schoolhouse, that fine old college with all its tradition and its ivycovered walls, that nice little roadster I used to have, my room at home with all the books, that radio in the living room, that phonograph with all its records, that piano, that tennis court back of the house, and that little black cocker spaniel with his big bright eyes and his funny walk. I am fighting for my home aq.d your home, my town and your town. I am fighting for New York and Chicago and Los Angeles and Greensboro and Sgt. Thomas N. Pappas Hickory Flat and Junction City. And, above all, I am fighting for Washington. I am fighting for those two houses of Congress, for that dignified and magnificent Supreme Court, for that President who has led us so brilliantly through these trying years and for the man who succeeds him. I am fighting for everything that America stands for. I am fighting for the rights of the poor and the rights of the rich. I am fighting for the right of the American people to choose their own leaders, to live their own lives, to pursue their own careers, to save their money if they like or to spend their money if they like. I am fighting for that girl with the large brown eyes and the reddish tinge in her hair, that girl who is away at college right now, preparing herself for her part in the future of America and Chris:. tianity. I ani fighting for that freedom that so few of us seemed to realize we had before the war struck at us. I am fighting for that American belief in equality, in justice and in an Almighty God. These are the things I am fighting for, and there are millions more in the Army fighting for them, too, and back on the home front the rest of the millions are buying the Bonds to help pay for the weapons of war and working day and night on the production lines to produce the weapons of war. We cannot lose About the Author Twenty-six-year-old Sgt. Thomas N. Pappas, of the Armored Force, is now Officer Candidate Pappas, and well embarked on a three months' course for a second lieutenancy. Inducted into the Army on Match 11, 1942, he was designated for officer training last May twenty-third, after advancing step by step through the ranks of corporal, sergeant, staff sergeant and first sergeant. The "big white house with the bright green roof" to which he refers in this essay is in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was born and where he has spent almost all his peacetime life. There still live his parents and three sisters; a younger brother is a corporal in the field artillery. One digression: after three years at Southwestern College, in Memphis, during which he played football and worked as a part-time reP-orter on the Memphis Commercial Appeal, he went to California for a couple of years to try his luck as a movie extra. His father, who came to this country from Greece in 1907, is a restaurant owner in Memphis. At the time that the Army called him, Thomas Pappas was back in Memphis, managing a res-taurant himself.

It's something right out of "Buck Rogers:' It shoots a projectile which lvoks like the regular comic strip version of a rocket with fins and stream lined designed.

THE TYNDALL TARGET NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION WEEK UNCOVERS SCORCHING CAMERA SHOTS 'lE/GFELD GAL' TURNS 'PISTOL PACK!N' HAHA' Marilyn Hightower, specialty dancer currently appearing the New York stage hit "Zelgfeld Girl," paid Tyndall Field a visit last week and 1 lterally left scorched earth in her foot-steps. Visiting her cousin, Jean Bush of the Sub-Depot Maintenance Department, lovely Marilyn created quite a fire hazard on her brief tour around the field. T/Sgt. Johnny Mitchell was the lucky guy of the Post Photo Section who drew the assignment to click the shutter on the Zelgfeld gal's photogenic face and phigure. Above, the starlet of the Wintergarden musical is pictured on one of the skeet ranges. (Rumor has it that immediately after the'pic was snapped, the gun-barrel melted. Odd, these malfunctions.) To the right, the 20-year old Pensacola lass is adding "zoomph" to an AT-6. No mere hearsay is the item that camera-man Mitchell had to be steadied after shooting the pose. P.S. fellas, she's single!

June is the golden-haired gal above of Civilain Per sonnel, who is assisting Lillian Steele in handling the "Ideas for Victory" campaign here at Tyndall Field. The "Ideas for Victory" program is under the sponsorship of the War Department and the irizes of $5 to $250 can be awarded only to civilian war workers employed by the War D9partment. Suggestion boxes have been placed in many strategic spots around the field to receive the helpful ideas of Tyndall's war workers. The amount of t he prize awarded depends upon the value of the suggestion. (Said Staff Sergeant Johnny Meisner as the camera cl !eked, "I see victory in June.")

This fighting Gl nine finished up their diamond wars several weeks ago with a record of 2i wins in 33 games for a season average of .636. Rarely outfought, the Tornadoes faced many of the strongest teams in the Southeast and came on top more times than not. Although quite a few of the original members of the team weren't there at the finish line, their places were well filled by such able late-comers as Woody Busby, Nick Orange, Jim Man derson and Bob Costigan.
