TEHERAN TALK A simple house nestling at the foot of the snow-:-capped peaks of the Elblrz Mountains Iran, was recently the scene of an epochal first meeting between the Messrs. Roosevelt, Stalin and Clurchill. These three, representing the greatness of the Allied Nations at war, arrived in Teheran on November 28, for THE TYNDALL TARGET PRISON ER"S In the first verse of the fourth chapter of Ephe s i an s, t h e Ap o s t l e Paul in d i cates t h at h e i s wri tin gr this letter from a prison camp. He speaks of himself as "The Prisoner of the Lord. This statement would' appear rather c .ontradictory when we consider his many discourses on Christain liberty. It seems even more so when we consider the many inestimable joys and which he declares will come from one's relationship to Christ. This story comingr out of the African Campaigrn will perhaps help clear the seemingr difficulty. Upon one -occasion, it is said, a British officer was captured by the Italians He regristered a strongr protest at the very inpalitable plate of macaroni which they served him for supper. All the Italians readily agrreed with the officer that such a dish w .as not even fit for hogrs, but it was the only thingr which they had between themsel..ves and starvation. Then the British officer begran to reminisce in their pre sence of all the choice foods he had partaken of in the British camp. The Italians went into a huddle and re.turned to announce. "We have decided to be your Prisoners instead. Will you take us to your camp?" .. To be a priso.ner o f the Lord and parta_ke of the divine blessingrs in His camP is more desirable than to remain in our own veritable p .rison c amP of sinful n e s s and sP i ri tu a l s t a rv at i on.

IT NOW AND FOREVER Something Hitler would have given Goebbel' s right eye ror, would have been a seat at the Teheran conference table while the t&lks between the Big Three were at their height. Or again, this column may be mistaken, since it is oQe thing to hear about your death warrant being draft e d --but still another to have to be present at the s1gnatbrial proceedings. When the second front doe s open Hitler had better look to the 'Illird Reichs rear-a likely place ror the invasion kick.

And our record since that black day is. really one for the books. Which is the American way of saying that we are out to get all .the Japanese royalties on that limited edition of a man-Tojo. It appears as tho rain nor snow nor sleet can keep the Russian males rrom making their appointed rounds. nay arter weary day, the Reds are giving the Nazis something to write home about as the RUSSian buck continues to plough forwa rd through softening German resistance. Last week, Stalin s stalwarts captured 22 hamlets and routed thousands or the followers or the man who would be king. Like most bad actors the Nazis excel in murrin g their cues, this tim e however, they are in grave danger.or discovering all too late, that most or their lines are either missing. or lie burled beneath .the season s !inal curtain in the deep Dnieper snows From the Swiss-Italian frontier comes an unconfirmed report of the firing squad execution of Count Galeazzo Ciano, former Fascist foreign minister of Italy, and aon-in-law to the deposed Il Duce. Repudiated by the German news agency DNB which broadcast a denial, it remains to be s .een whether it is the story or C1ano that is full of holes. Notorious for his greed and affaires amour, and sponsored by his Premier father-in-law, cisno rose high in the Fascist council before his falling out with Mussolini.

THE "TYNDALL '1'1\RGET MY FAVORITE PHOTO II 8 y THEIR INSIGNIA YE SHALL KNOW THEN 11 One of tlie most collectingest. guys on Tyndall Field is lst/Sgt. Clare Willcut of Squadron C. How, some people_go in for collecting stamps, or, even blondes--but Wlllcut decided being a numismatist, philatelist or wolf, in order to concentrate on the intricate and painstaking task of collecting Army shoulder patches and insignias. Although specializing in U.S. Army emblems, Willcut the !n signias of several of our Allies to hi s collectton, tncludtng Dutch and French regimental badges. In his favorite photo {above) the sergeant is pictured with his collection. He is shown pointing to the U.S. Army's 2nd Division insignia. He claims he has.been trying for that emblem for more than three years and now that he has at 1 ast obtained one, considers it among his most valuable additions. as to why the 2nd Division insignia was so hard to acquire, Willcut explained that no one whom he had ever met that had one was willing to surrender it. Upon further questioning we learned that he finally obtained it through the efforts of one of his "agents" (a friend) up in Chicago.

THE TYNDAI,L TARGET Final, inexorable plans for destroying the Gennan army by offensives from the east, west and south were announced by Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill at the conclusion of their conference in Teheran, Iran. "No power oh earth can prevent our destroying the Gennan armies by land, their U-boats by sea, and their war plants from the air. our attacks will be relentless and increasing," the three leaders declared. The final victory strategy fixed "the scope and timing of operations" for an AmericanBritish invasion of western Ellrope and for a secondary as1 sault from the south either through Italy, the Balkans or the south of France. which was allied with Gennany in the last war--would cooperate either di or indirectly.

Field Marshal J9-n Christian Slluts, of the Uruon of South Afr:U:a and a member of the British war cabinet, in a press conference said that the "greatest news" of the three historic Allied conferences is yet to be told.

ThisJ soldierJ may mean that our advance is slow. But be grateful. It may seveLely restrict our choice of invasion points when the-Western Front f s opened. But be glad of it.

O.u most valuable leaders try to save iives by scrupulous concern for three principles. FirstJ adequate training of troops. SecondJ giving our troops the very best possible in -foodJ equipmen tJ sup plies and weapons. ThirdJ furnishing the finest medical attention possible. Ole basic reason for America's fine stinginess in spending lives--your ,lifeJ soldier-is the experience of the lost great the bloodiest in his tory. The colossal losses in human life that th European notions underwent cardinally almost every one of then.

Ludendorffs great offensives in the spring of i9i8--which so drained the Germans o f blood that they los t the war-cost u s and our allies more than a full million of c asual ties in fiv e short months, Our policy also has been conditioned. in other than purely mili tory respects by this desire not t 6 repeat the horrors of the last war. For ins tonc.eJ in politics: Why did we deal with Darlan in North Afri co? Becaus&--righ'tly or wrongly--it was thought it would make invasion less costly. Why did we link up with the king and Badoglio in Italy? Because we thought-perhaps mistakenlythat it would speed up the campoi9;11 and end the war sooner In tne military fieldJ more and more our essential strategy is based on air power. By b o mbingJ we achiev e results that would cost multiple thousands of casual ties on land. A big raid on a Nazi target may engage :D:) bombers andJ roughlyJ :r:x:D men. But these :0:::0 men may wreakJ in 20 minutesJ destruction that ,SOJOCO troops could not achieve in 20 months.

Many humorous incidents hav e occurre d while the men were surrering oxy gen lack (anoxia) be rore droning their masks There are many reacttons ; some cases become morose a n d droopy, others exhlllarated and "slap-happy.
