October 30, 1943 THE TYNDALL TARGET STRICT FOOD CONTROL NECESSITATES NEW MESS PROCEDURE C OHHAND I NG GENERAL OF EF TC INSPECTS TYNDALL OUR FRONT COVER J Gis Must Present Pass Or Ticket to Enter Mess Halls Effective Monday, November 1, Tyndall Fjeld Gis will be required to show passes or present tickets for punching upon entering Consolidated Halls at meal time. The new mess procedure 1s a direct result of the stringent rationing program which the War Department' recently set up for Army m(ss halls. In a general statement on the new system, Capt. A.L. Casey, post mess officer, said, "We are adopting this plan in order to msure, as much as possible, that the food we are allowed will be equitably distributed to the men for whom it is intended. This system of control is not new and many fields have found a successfUl solution to their food problem through its use. We hope that Taken while the class In Blindfold Phase Check was in session, our front cover this week centers about Pfc. Harold D. LeFebvre of Squadron D, looking for all the world like a player In a gaJile of blind man's buff. WIthout removing the bll nd fold from h is eyes, It isLeFebvres' job to dismantle that Cal. 50 machine gun, whose 011 Buffer Group he is holding, and assemble it again within a given time. A native of Lenox, Mass., student gunner LeFebvre 1 ikes his guns and can't wait to get across for that crack at the Germans or Japs. Like his fellow students, he is ap preciative of the instruction he is receiving, for he knows that someday it will enable him to draw a more deadly bead on an enemy plane -whenever it appears within his sights.

We beiieve it was that gre 'at glorifier of the American Girl, Flo Zeigfeld, who originated the phrase, Frenchmen can't be wrong! Anyway, here at Tyndall, m 111 tary secrecy forbids us to mention the exact number of T/F French gunnery students who "can't be wrong" when they red headed Becky Emanuel (above) as their favorite of favorites. With Pvt. Gilles Levesque as interpreter and Pfc. Paul as ghost writer, Tyndall's French students have peti tioned the Target to carry their favor1te photograph of the PX'sBeckywiththefollowingexplanation: I n "In fitting climax to that long list of g1rls wed l1ke most to be with," the French Air Force Squadron at Tyndall Field last week nominated Miss "Becky" Emanuel as the 1 sweetheart of the French Air Forces in America.' Miss Emanuel, titian-headed charmer, dispenser of happiness and carbonated beverages, and destroyer of G I hearts at the Post Recreation Hall, was presented with a sterling silver bracelet inscribed with the names of the Free French Personnel attending Gunnery School here. After six months employment on Tyndall Field, she has, in the opinion of those she serves, swiftly become one of the most popular and efficient of the PX personnel. A native of Florida, Becky came to Panama City in and, attracted by the lure, charming environments, aod even more charming public, soon found niche in Tyndall's vast army of civilian workers. Through rapid transfers from the main PX, to the Bowling Alleys, and finally to her present position,, her career on Tyndall Field has become one of her other joysl and comforts. But she considers the honor of being the sweetheart of so many warriors, far from home, her supreme accomplishment."

She stopped beside a shady rrook to rest, As she sat wondering when all the boys would be back !rom the war, a voice spoke to her. She looked. and was surprised to find that voice had come from a large bullfrog, sitting on the bank of the nearby stream. The frog said, Take me home w1 th you, place me on your pillow, and when you awake tomorrow morning a handsome man will be lYing there 1n bed with you." Well, she was doubtful, but the rrog finally persuaded her, so she took him home and that evening placed him on the pillow beside her. The next morn-\ 1ng when her mother came to awaken her, sure enough, there was a handsome young man 1n bed w1th the girl. And do you know, to this day, her mother never believed the story about the frog, .

Hanington walked along the road to ward Barrack.t No. 404 at peace with eveyone. He turned onto the walk with a pick and shovel preparent to inspect.. Immediately he began to dig his way to Room One. He dug on for about an hOwbefore he recc::hed the door. Littie did he realize what was in store for him. FROM THE Taking his snowshoes from his pack he placed them on his feet to prevent himself from being absorbed by the dust. He walked slowly through the room careful of every step. All was well.

"Our P rogre.ss Is Satisfactory" "Our progress is satisfactory." That is the wording of the latest Allied communique on the fighting in Italy, where our progres$ for the past week or so has been considerably slowed. There is heavy fighting immediately ahead, until and if we can toss the Nazis out of the mountain defenses which stretch across Italy. The military experts believe that the Nazis are now in their last defense line before Rome, that when we toss them out of the mountains the going will be comparatively easy until we run into the nex t chain of defenses north of Rome However, some of those ex perts believe it will be a tough struggle before we get past the mountains. One school of thought expects the Nazis under Marshal Rommel to make a strong counterattack which may push our troops back along some of the ground which we have gained since Naples. Vast numbers of 88 mn. guns and heavy mortars are being used by the Nazis against the slcwly advancing Allied troops. Civil War in The Bat kans The belligerent Balkans, EUrope's trouble spot for ages, are at it avain. The two patriot armies there are squabbling and fighting among themselves. Takj ng ad vantag e of this, the Germans have sent motorized and armored forces snashing into the hills in an effort to wipe out both forces. King Peter, the youthful monarch who dared to defY Hitler tefore the Germans occupied Yugoslavia, supports Gen. Mi h ailovic, while Gen. Josip Rroz (Ti to) is backed, or at least is in favor of, the Com rrunists Th e Allie s are caught in the middle . Allied diplo mats, you m a y be sure, are doing their best to end the differences between the two p atriot leaders. J opanese Chased Into the HiLls Admiral Halsey's amphibious forces have chased Jap troops into the hills after lanEling in islands of the Treas_ury group :In the northern Solomons. The Treasury islands. are some 30 miles south of Bou gainvipe. The landing is ap parently part of a move to close in on the substantial Jap forces in Bougainville, bombings of airfields in the vicinity which preceded the attack prevented the Japs from sending any planes to oppose the. landings. Goebbels Says Russia Is Rea{ Danger German Propaganda Minister Goebbels tells the German people that Soviet Russia is "the real danger of this war," but that as far as the home front is concerned Allied bomb ings "represent the lion's share of our troubles." Goebbels asserted in an article that while Germany had met setbacks and had been forced to make retreats "there are no signs of military or moral collapse." He wasn't exaggerating a great deal when he spoke of the "real danger" from Russia. The Soviet troops are just about to trap another German army in the lower Dnieper area and the Crimea. When you look at a map, it is a little startling to see the advance the Russians have made since Stalingrad, in the south, particularly, because there they are rapidly approaching the Rumanian border. Japs Lo.f:Je 700 Planes Allied planes last Saturday and &mday dropped destruction, and some death, on the J ap s at Rabaul, New Guinea.

American Artillery Traps G. I.; Nazi Guns Free Him Italy (CNS) -Pvt. Audrey Stamey of Rome, Ga. had the perience of being nipped by his own artillery fire-and then freed by that of the enemy. It happened when Stamey was trapped between his lines and the Germans near Altaville. A big American gun let go with a blast and Stamey dived into a slit trench already occupied by six Germans. As soon as the firing stopped the Germans left the trench and took Stamey with them. Then the Nazi guns opened up. The Germans scattered and Stamey found himself alone again. He hid in a ditch and then worked his way back to his own lines. Ma Sails So Son Gets Leave Lincoln, Neb. (CNS) Pvt. George Specht gave a reason for an emergency furlough that was a corker. He explained his mother, an Army Nurse, was sailing for overseas duty. He got the fur-lough. ---, Guardians We extend our heartiest congratulations (somewhat .belated) to Lt. Eugene T for his quiring that silver bar. Incldentally, Lt. Bonk is at school now but will return soon. There has been a decided slowness in our purchasing war bonds and in our taking out more life insurance.' These two are surefire bets that can't miss, so why not see Cpl. Mashburn and Buy War funds?

Kooey and Mitchell showed up well i11 practice and seem to be'assured of a permanent berth. This column thinks that it's about time for another squadron party so why not have one.

Artal, is another Tampa boy who came in the Army on the 15th of Jan., 42, Artal was born on Nov. 12, 1913 in the "Bataclan' of Ybor City, a part of Tampa. He once worked in a cigar fac tory but spent most of the time after that working in the best restaurants of TamJ'a. Ray also spent about two years in the CCC and there learned the rudiments of cooking, Cpl. Artal is getting married soon but hasn't plucked UJ' sufficient courage to take the fa tal step. He is now working as Cpi. of the Guard and does a good job of it. -Cpl. Sam Marotta Oh, Those Sergeants! Gal Loves Them All Jersey City (CNS) -Pretty Catherine Donniani loves sergeants so much that she married one of them and had a baby by another, When Sgt. Leon Donniani (the one she married) got wind of this set-up, he filed suit for divorce and won it. But S/Sgt. Russell Woessner (the one by whom she had the baby) is now o v erseas so Catherine is entirely sergeantless. "But," she philosophized, "we'll be married just as soon as Russell gets back and then everything will be all right."
