THE TYNDALL TARGET "Over an English beach, everyone bailed out of a Flying Fortress which internal explosions had turned into a blazing torcheveryone, that is, exceP.t the pilot, Lieutenant Jfathew Vtnson. As he broug.lft her down, machine gun ammunition exploded, entire bomb load of 2000 pounds went up in sinrle explosion from the heat after Vinson crash-landed a few feet from a heavdy mined area." That's the account as carried in one of our daily papers of a combat mission. Sounds like a conspiracy against Vinson. If anyone ever could crl, "Everything happens to me, 11 it seems to me that i should be Vinson. He didn't though. Because that isn't the finish of the news item. It continues, "Said J,ieutenant Vinson: 'There is only one explanation. The Han Upstairs brought me down safe l y. I talked to Him.

In every plea to God for help and protection there is a recognition of His loving care for us His crea tures. The point that I'd like to make is this. The recognition of dePendence by Vinson upon God make us think of the fact that we 1.n the tra1.n1.ng command should frequently acknowledge our dependence upon God.
