N o vember 27 1943 FINANCE'DETACHMENT ENTERS NOMINATION FOR 'MEANEST MAN' As rar as the members or Tyndall's Finance Detachment are concerned, no man has stooped low .er than the thief who robbed them or a 10-cent piece last Wednesday evening. The story goes back several mori ths ago when, a rter much nrtnegling, n a concrete walk was to replace the cinder path which led to the Finance orrtces rront door. While the cement was still wet, the members of the detachment, under Captain Emory Shofner, decided to imbed a dime 1n the walk, symbol! c or. the trust had 1n t h e r1 eld' s personnel. A silver dollar, or other large cotn, was vetoed ror the honor because the boys rel t that they ought not to lead any one n 1n to temp ta t1on. 11 Thus, ror nigh onto 58 days and nights the dime remained 1n concrete setting as a !laming s ymbol or 1lD..l tual trust and fat th. Then, alas, came Thursday morning THE TYNDALL TARGET "SOHETH/NG FOR THE BOYS" November 18, and the dime had btsappeared! Charlotte Manson, 1 i vel y CBS actress, appears frequent! y Words are inadequate to des-over WWL on the "America in the Air" series, Sundays at 6:30. cr1be the despair and d1s1llu-Since turtle-neck sweaters are definitely out for the duration, stonment that pervaded the FinCharlotte here exhibits the latest in low-slung apparel, much ance Of!1ce rollowtng the dis-to the pleasure of Tyndall G.l:'s. Nice, eh? covery or the loss. It 1s quite likely that the Tyndall 1ers will never forget nor for give this violation o f their trust. When sought out for a comment on the tragic affair, Captain Shofner asked not to be quoted, but, he said, "That dime was a symbol or trust that the Finance Office had in the personn e l or Tyndall Field, From now on we will look at everything twice, having been 1mpressed w1 th the ract that someone on this rteld 1s dishonest." GIVE THANKS I guess most of know me; If you don't, I'm just a guard. There are times when I might err, but at Least I 1m trying hard. I IIXltch my post as best I can, on this you must agree --That if there's a fire or trouble near, the guy they calL is me. I've one foot in the guardhouse; the job I've got is sWeet-I In have both feet in the guard house, if I am caught asleep. I1m out there in the sunshine, I1m out there in the rain. No praise is ever mine, there are no stripes for me, or gain. Stop griping about your troubles, you should be thankful, pard, Thank the Lord above you, that you aren't GUARD! -Pvt.

MY being a photographer, I might work up as high as' a TfSgt. We go on all kinds of missions. We put 5,000 rounds or ammu on board and we don't come down un til we ha.ve f1 red all of it. We have air-to-air firing and air-to ground. We don 1 t use tracers so we really have to depend upon our knowledge or apparent m otion sighting. Well, must sign orr now. my regards to the bunch.
