A DIFFERENT "BONUS" A committee of educators appointed the President prepared' for action by Congress a plan to provide a billi.on dollars worth of education after the war for the men and women M!o served in the anned forces. in brief, the pTograin calls for the government to offer to any man or woman who s .erved six months or more the tuition and living costs for one year's attendance at a college or other educational institution. The committee estimated that in the neighborhood of a million persons would take advantage ) f the proposed offer. In sending the report of the committee to Congress, President Roosevelt "We must replenish our supply of persons qualified to discharge the heavy responsiqilities of the postwar world. We have taught our youth how t<;> wage war; we must also teach them how to live useful and happy lives in freedooi, justice and decency." This "bonus" of free advanced education is entirely different from the great majority of ideas which have been proposed as benefits for the soldier returning from war. A good many of the suggestions previously advanced have been of the "40 acres and a mule" variety, and have smacked of "cash on the barrelhead" politics. Most of then involve little more than giving the discharged soldier various sums of money, which you can be sure will be quickly spent, and lost, in most cases, forever. Free educations would not only aid the ex-service men and women but also would be of untold value to the nation and to the world as a whole. A nation is enriched much more intelligent voter, and CAN YOU PASS THE REQUIRED TEST? Search your heart and s ee tf you are the possessor of that love which will survive the hatred which this war Here is the test of such a love in the command of Jesus: -"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven. II The kind of a world we will have to live in after this war is over will de Pend upon whether.or not we have passe-d this require d test.

Hatred for our enemies will invariably in them a hatred for us. Such muttial haired will always break out in open conflict it may smoulder for years under a c amoufl There are many who hold the opinion that hatred -of ones enemies is. an indispensable requisite of a soldier.' This is a false and a concept; for, if we love only those that love us, what do we more than our Are we really any better than they, if we do the same? If we cherish a like hatred in our hearts, we have no to cl.aim the approval and help of God for ourselves in our war them. best soldier is the one who has learned to make distinction between his'--e .nemy and the evil which he represents and Perpetrates. The evil we are commanded to hate, because God Himself hates it and sets himself it.

November 13, 1943 NAVIGATOR TELLS 0 F 1 MPORTANCE 0 F GUNNERY Says He Wishes He Had Gone Into Action With Tyndall _Training The practical importance or complete pre-combat training in aerial gunnery was emphasized to day by Lt. Earl w. Quillman, veteran of 33 bombing missions over rmany and occupied France. The first time Lt Quillman, now temporarilY assigned-to the Army Air Forces Redistribution station at Miami Beach, shot an aerial gun was at enemy aircraft, and he certainly wishes he had had the advantage or training such as that offered at Tyndall Field. "I had no formal training in gunnery, the 28-year-old Flying Fortress navrgator from Erie, Pa., sai a. "When came in to the service, time was so short that we were trained only in our par ticular field.-in my case, navigation. Now, of course, gunnery is a requisite part; of the t .raining all crew members, because the exp 'erience of men like Lt. man has shown that any crew member may be called upon to man the guns. "A navigator, especiallY in the European theatre," the_young officer explained, "spends almost all his time in the air at the guns --the area is so well charted that most of it can be navigated before the take-orr. "UP there in the nose of the FOrt," he said, "Ihad a flexible gun assi gned to me, and mY Job was really that of navigator-gunner., with emphasis on the gunner. I could have used some or that training I didn' t get. n Lt. Quillman recalled that he had been on 15 missions before he learned how to 1ntrepret trace) bullets correct;ly. "What I did know about guns, w he said, "I picked up from gunner sergeants while I was stationed in England. Those sergeants .--graduates or Tyndall and other gunnery schools --know everything about aerial guns, and believe me, they can't know too much. They taught him to take his gun apart --the best way to learn about it short of an actual course or instruction --and they impressed upon him the importance of cleaning it after every raid. "Many times I had to strip the gun in the air, n L t Quillman said, "and because I had carefully learned the possibl e stoppages and malfunctions,. 1 was able to make minor repairs and get 'it back in action without THE TYNDALL TARGET / It's bad enough standing around like this In the cold, but it's still harder on a miss To fear that she' 11 neverattain fame Because her admirers wouldn't give her a name So get busy, chums, use your imagination, lndul9e in a 1 ittle -losing too much time."

Every combat crew man who has taken part in the recent punishinr, blows arainst the enemy blows that have cut the German fichter plane production in half -feels that the successes of our fighting forces abroad w ould be impossible without the steady flow of highly trained crews, replacement aircraft, and superiorequipment which the Training and Service Commands have labored so faithfully to furnish them. The constant evidence of this all-out backine by the Army Air Forces establishments at home is having a tremendous effect on their morale, and will insure their continued enthusiasn for the job they have to do. A progressively increasing supply of highly trained crews, with the finest equipment and planes we can provide, must be our reply to their praise in order to hasten the ulti-mate victory over the It g i ves me great pleasure to pass on to you -their message.

The Summary As the week en<;led, this was the situation: The Russian Army was about to cut the last north-south railroad held by the Gennans 'in the western Ukraine. Terrain and weather slowed down the Allied drive against the Nazis in Italy. Bombing attacks from the Allies' bases in the Medi terranean area and in Great Britain to whittle away at Germany arl occupied France. The Marines and the In fan try had secured a six-mile beachhead on Bougainville Island, and there were hints that the Allies were pr& paring a three-pronged offensive against the Japs. Germans D tg In, Allied Advance S l OlliS Down The battle of Italy had slowed down considerably, de spite continuous EnanY connterattacks. The Arne ric an Fifth Army has repulsed_ several Nazi: stabs, gained some ground and taken a few prisoners. Rome--where, reports said, the Germans were setting out delayed-action mines and making other preparations for annoying the Allies when they reach that ci cy -was still 75 miles away. It was that the Germans had dug in at approximately their present tion with the intention of making their "winter defense line" in that area. Russians Halfway From Stalingrad To Nazi Capital Driving west from Kiev, the Russian troops have just abOut cl osed a death trap around the Gennans comparative to that in which the Nazi Sixth Army was wiped out at Stalingrad last winter.

13, 1943 YANK WRITER WAS FIRST AMERICAN TO ENTER LAE T/Sgt. Richardson 'Suffered Eye Wound in Covering Attack Story New York.-First American enlisted soldier to enter Lae in New Guinea was T /Sgt. Dave Richardson, acorrespondent for Yank, the official servicemen' s weekly. Sgt: Richardson, a former reporter :or the Indianapolis Star and New ,.../York Herald-Tribune, has been covering the South Pacific war for 14 months. He was the only photographer to take part in the Battle of Sanananda, <:.nd is the only enlisted correspondent in New Guinea. His record has been one of continuous frontline reporting in Australia, New Guinea ,and Woodlark Island. In a recent assignment for Y imk, Richardson went to the PT boat base of Lt. Comdr. John D. Bulkeley, hero of the fast PT's at Bat<:.an He spent several days there, going on missions, taking pictures and gathering material for Yank stories. Again he rang up a "first" by being the first correspondent to accompany Comdr. Bulkeley into action since the PT commander came out of the Philip.'ines. "Then," says Sgt. Richardson, "I ../got permission to accompany American 'troops on the Lae invasion. Our landing was made Sept. 4, and in the first three days I took 50 pictures. We underwent severe bombings those three days and I caught a piece of shrapnel in my right eye from a big baby that landed only six feet from my foxhole. For the next five da:ys I went around with a white patch .over the eye. In the bombing, my typewriter broke. There was only one other typewriter in the whole invasion. I used it in the few minutes each day when someone else wasn.'t." With his eye healed enough to remove the patch, Richardson caught up with the Aussie infantry, traveling by barge, jeep, and "ankle ex press." The Australians went into Lae Sept. 16, and the Yank correspondent wrcs the first American enisted man on the scene. During the \ ,..ast two days of fighting and on the first day of Lae's fall, he got 50 more pictures, which he carried back to his original base by "barge, naval v:_ssel, ambulance, plane and garbage wagon-a laborious process that took four days."

Page 9 STUDY OF CLOTKING SIZES IS MADE BY QUARTERMASTER Your Feet Grow Bigger as Training Progresses-And Why Not! Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 20.-Mass tabu lation of the clothing items with which American soldiers are fitted when they enter the Army has enabled the Army Service Forces llo gear clothing procurement to specific levies of manpower, according to figures at the Quartermaster Branch, Fourth Service Command. As each soldier is fitted, the size of each is recorded and forwarded to the Office of the Quarter master General. The figures are tabulated and analyzed to determine the percentages of each clothing size required for future issue at the various reception centers, as well as for an overall picture of the nation as a whole. Having determined what sizes are in demand and where, the Army is enabled to make purchases and dis tribute them accordingly, and the tabulation has brought to light certain e .stablished facts. For example, the lowering of the age limit to 38 years diminished the demand for stout sizes, while the indusion of the 18-19 year olds increased the demand for small and medium sizes. Individual records show that as training progresses ,the size of the soldier's waist is reduced, his shoulders expand and his feet grow larger. Latest figures show that 51 pet cent of the selectees can be fitted in sizes classified as "regular", while 18 per cent require "shorts" and 27 per cent take "longs" with only four per cent "extra longs." There are 42 sizes of blouses, 25 sizes of overcoats, 46 sizes of trous ers and 240 sizes of shoes to insure that the soldiers are well fitted, and in addition, clothing is altered whim some minor change is required. "HOT" MUSICIANS PROVE GOOD FIRE FIGHTERS When a 1-! ton truck belonging to the Quartermaster caught on tire last Wednesday at the corner or Louisiana and M1ss1ss1pp1 Avenues, the first men to reach the scene were members or the ZOBth AAF Band.

I nounced this week.. By SGT. FRANK DE BLOIS CNS Sports Correspondent Back of Ham Healy's saloon on New Lots Avem,1e, there's a t .ree grows in Brooklyn and if you just sit under it long enough why sooner or later a fellow is almost certain to come up to you .ani say: 'Who'' s the guy that Lippy Leo doesn't 1 ike?' He will be referring, no to the celebrated remark made by Leo Du.i-ocher, ihe" big bell cow of the Brooklyn Dodgers, on the happy occasion of his as manager of the Bums for the coming campaign. On that great day the Lip said that -despite some ugly rumors he had heard he really loves every last Bun on the team "wi til the exception of one man." Well, who IS the guy that Lipry Leo doesn' t like? This of course, is the burning question of the hour all along Montague street. It is also being asked between sips of potheen on New Utrecht Avenue, on the Parkway, up B:hd down Myrtle Street and in the public baths at Prospect Park. You can evm smell it mingled with the herring scent in the evening breezes that waft up from Gawarrus and hear it in the thunder of the waves that beat on Brighton's noble shores. It's on every lip in Brownsville and every ear in Greenpoint is flapping for the answer all Canarsie wants to know. WHO'S the guy that Lif'py Leo doesn't like? Speculation runs high on this question among the clan of faithful that gathers every afternoon around the old hot stove in front of Left Field Louie's chestnut stand at the corner of Flatbush and DeKalb. There every effort is made to get to the nub of the problem, as the saring 'All I gotta say is,' says Dan Parkers Francis Looney, the three button elevator man with hash marks under each of his eyes, 'is that it better not be Dixie. If they let Dixie go, it'll be the rawrest deal they ever done in Brooklyn. Jeremiah speaketh. of Dixie Walker, first in the hearts of all Flatbush, who has been mentioned most prominently as man that Lippy Leo doesn't like. It is reported that bad cess developed between Dixie and his manager during the season. Bad cess for that matter, developed between the Lip and quite a ofhis athletes during.the season. One day Bobo Newsom squawked when Durocher dressed him down while Bobo was dressing up to go out. The Lip then suspended Bobo and the whole team went on strike. Branch Rickey, the Number One man on the Dodgers, fired Bobo and ended the strike, send ing Arky Vaughan, leader of the insurrection, back to third base where he performed with alacrity and disratch for the remainder of the season. Rumor hath it that the Lip doesn 1 t like V81J,ghan, for sticking up for Bobo; that he doesn't like Billy Herman, because Billy wants his job; and tlla t he doesn I t like lllis Olmo' the Puerto Rican outfielder, because lllis doesn't bring him pretty flowers. The boys at Left Field Louie's .chestnut corner can't figure out and Left Field Louie himself is as befuddled as the best of .them. As a matter of fact, he has put his Jament into verse. To wit: Is it Holman, Vern, or Erl.Iro, Coi t Davis, Bordygary? boys? Is it Mickey Owen 1 s bro tiler, Koiby Higbe 's mother? Or is it Typhoid Mary? Is it Joe, the popcorn sBlesman, boys?
