LEGACY OF COLUMBUS Stores were aJ.anningly low, amongst the crew there were dark :faces and angry muttel' ings, talk o:f mutiny and open plotting against the great admiral 1 s life. It was now more than two months since they had set sail fiom the port o:f Palos in Catholi. c Spain. Where was this new passage to the :fabulous wealth o:f the Indies? Angrily they bandied the question among themselves. The moment was desperate and the evening o:f Oct. 11, 1492, found Columbus stationed on the top o:f his cabin aboard the Santa Maria ranging his eye along the dimning horizon, keeping ceaseless watch. Ahead was the :fast sailing Pinta, in the wake o:f his oWr:t ship followed the Nina. The undertaking had the blessings and backing of Spain 1 s benevolent rulers, Fernando and his queen, Ysabel. To them, ;ililunbls had given his pledged word that he would repay their kindness and trust, in gold of the Indies. About ten o 1 clock that evening Co+umbus thought he beheld a light glimnering in the distance. He called one o:f his men to him and inquired whether he too, saw such a light; the man rti)lied that he did. As :fi t.fully as it had shone, the light disappeared, but tv Colunbus this was certain s1gn of land and proo:f that it was inhabited. At two in the morning, a gtm :from the Pinta spoke on the heels of the magical cry o:f 11Land! The men crowded. a: thwartships, their eyes straining into the darkness.

It wasn't any time till qutet, calm friendly self had an impact and an tnfluence on everyone whom he met.

ChaPLatn Nester Performed this function at this field to the satisfaction of God and his fellow men. He was a kindly, friendly counselor.

He never hesitated for one minute in the performance of his duty. Chaplain Wester was the fifth Chaplain at Tyndall Field. Chaplain McCLelland is in England, Chaplain Finnerty is in North Africa. Where ChaPLain Wester wilL go we don't kno w, but across the face of God's earth he will be a tower of strength and a bulwark jo r courq.ge among our soldiers on the battle fields.

October 16, 1943 THE TYNDALL TARGET rage 5 LZ0-6-:t I ------' Veteran Of 42 Missions Over Europe And Africa Here For Gunnery Course Pte Phillip L aub st iid-' ministrative inspector and rationing officer, issued a state ment yesterday to the effect that "the tire situation in Panama City and vicinity is definitely critical." In explaining the existing oon ditions, Major Morse said that the new quotas allotted to the Panama City area are not nearly adequate. Also, tests recently carried out by the OPA reveal that the new synthetic tire is not equal to the qual! ty of natural rubber tires. In view of the fact that the new synthetic tires can be depended upon to last but half as long as pre-war .tires, the major cautioned Tyndall's car drivers to avoid tire abuse and to adhere to a 35 mile speed limit. Because of' the" critical tlre situation, gas rationing her. e will be strictly observed, filar-: ing rides with others and travel-' ing only with full cars will be of prime importance in the issuance of new gas As to just how strict the gasratiooing progr1111 will be observ. ed, Major Morse stated that a cBreful.

Jap Air Force r Takes A Beating The Allies for quite some time have had the upper hand. in the fighting in the South Pacific. Early this week they very definitely got control of. the air, probably permanently, in that area. Using the biggest Allied air force ever assembled in the Pacific theater, General MacArthur just about ruined any chances the J aps may have had for making an effective stand by dropping some 350 tons of bombs on Rabaul on New Brit-. a in island. Although the ra;ld was &ilall by Ellropean theater standards, nevertheless it was enough to 'destroy more than 60 percent of the Japanese air strength at Rabaul and to sink. most of the ships in the harbor there. All told, 177 enemy aircraft were destroyed ar severely danr aged. One hundred of these were destroyed on the ground and 51 severely. The J aps sent up 40 figpter planes in a vain effort to stop the attack. Twenty-six of these were shot by our gunners and the fighter planes_ \'lhich 1 escorted the bombers. In the harbor, three destroyers and four merchantmen were sunk. A submarine and its tender, a big destroyer tender and' another large merchantman were damaged severely. In all, 17,600 tons of ships were sent to the bottom of the 'harbor.

FOOTBALL "GREATS', ( A C. N. S. Sp o r t s Chat) Here's one you can chew on awhile: Who was the greatest football player you ever saw in your life? Red Grange, perhaps, or Tom Harmon, or Bronko Nagurski? Or maybe Don Hutson, Mel Hein, or Bruiser Kinard? The best guess is that you can t answer this question at all. And 1t you can t you re 1n good company, because the best grid coaches in the country can t answer 1t either. Esquire Magazine in a recent poll of football coaches round that they all had their f!l.vorites, but most or them didn't agree with the other guys choice. Grange got more votes than anyone else and a lot or the coaches thought that the Illinois redhead's 95-yard touchdown runback or the opening kickorr in the 1924 Illinois-Michigan game was the best single play they had ever seen on a football field. That was the day when a Michigan player, at the opening kickd rr, turned to the Illinois center and .. "Wheres this guY Grange? We want to kick to him. He' s right by the goal posts, n the Iliinois center replied. Go ahead and kick. Michigan went ahead and kicked' and Grange relurned the boot 95 yards for a touchdown. Before the game was over, orange made rour more touchdown runs or 67, 56, 44 and 15 yards and Illinois won, 39 to 14. Bronko Nagursk1, the old Minnesota land mirie who gained more ground in the National Professional Football League than Gen. Montgomery did in North Africa, second to Grange 'in the Esquire polL Big Bronko, who retired from competitive football several years ago and has been doing nothing rut a little wrestling ever since h\ls announced that he's coming back to the Chicago Bears this. fall as a tackle. Third among the All-time football greats in the magazine poll was Jim Thorpe,the all-around man, who could do everything 1n sports but hit a curve ball !or John McGraw. Thorpe was followed by Tom Harmon and Slinging Sammy Baugj:l, a couple or moderns, while Don Hutson; the kind of the pass catching ends, was top lineman in the voting. Other stars who rated high in the Esquire .POll were Ernie. Nevers or Stanford; George Gipp, storied Notre Dame back; Ace Parker, the never say-die Duke University and Brooklyn Dodger star; Cliff Battles, or the Washington Redskins; Dutch Clark, great Colorado quarterback; Jarrm John Kimbrough, of the Texas Aggies; George McAfee, or Duke and the Bears; Bruce Smith, or Minnesota; \ol:ll zzer White, of Colorado, and Frank Sinkwich of Georgia, last season's top star. The late walter Camp, "father or rootball, n was parTfai' to a couple of old Blues. Pudg e Hefrlefinger, the grandfather or all the guards in t he world, was o ne or them. And Frank H in key, who made Camp's All-American team four times, was another. Stout Steve Owen, c oach or the :"ew York Giants, o nce told Grantland Rice that his all-time All-American backfield would be composed or Grange, Nagurskl, Thorpe and Dutch Clark. And maybe Nevers," he added
