Gen. Frederick H Osborn, Director of the Morale Services Division. The report shows that American soldiers stationed abroad want some means of continuing their education in their leisure time. Interest was expressed in such subjects as engineering, eco-\ nomics, the jiberal arts and the sciences. Men wanted to know [ how they could "bone-up" on these studies. Apparently the school-hungry soldiers were unacquainted with the Arme d Force s Insti tute which provi d es courses .in all of these s ubjects and many more besides. The Armed Forces Institute is an organization set up within the Army to help the soldier who is ambitious to help himself. Through it enlisted men and women a r e encouraged to advance themselves both within the Army and as a preparation for a return to civilian life after the war. Right now nearly 70, 000 men and women in service throughout the world are utilizing a few hours of their off-duty time each week for study through the Institute. Some of them are working for promotions in the Army. Others are working for high school diplomas or college degrees. Still others are planning to take over a good job after the war. All use the same mediumc orrespondence courses issued through the Institute by high schoo ls, technical schools, and leading colleges and universities in America. Right now there are more than 300 hi .gh school and teC'hnical subjects which. the student may take by correspondence direct from the Institute. In addition 82 colleges and universities are offering extension courses in 343 subjects. Textbooks may be iurnished to .groups within a single unit who cooperate in their ( Cbn on Page 9) but listen hard enoufh, you will hear, I feel sure, the mighty movement of an old, familiar song.

Meanwhile the Pacific theater of war shows the Japs still reeling from the effects of America's latest little invasion acts.

Robert Allen Coe, of Base Photo Section. Baby James All en Coe was born on March 16, 1943 and weighed 8 I bs. at birth. His present wi eght of 24 I bs. reveals a nature apparently unconcerned by the fact that his country is at war. The tiny isolationist was named for his uncle, James Butler, Navy gunner 3rd class, on a merchant ship that was torpedoed off the coast of Scotland, on October 19, 1942. A few survivors reached port but Butler was not among them. As the only cooing member of the Coes would undoubtedly like to know about his Dad, we invite his attention to the brief biography that follows. Pfc. Robert Allen Coe was born in Newark, N.J. and after graduating from the Forke Union Military Academy in Virginia, the former miler and expert rifleman headed for New York and a career in photography. In December, 1941, Coe left New York City for Washington, D. C. and his first government posit ion. It was while working as a photographer for the Bureau of Aeronautics, Navy Department, that he met and later married a fellow employe, Miss Arlene Stepp of Bloomfie ld, Nebraska. Twenty-eight blissful days followed and then came the dawn of July 15, 1942 and with it, the official greetings of a New York City Draft Board. In rapid succession followed Fort Dix, Miami Beach, and Tyndall Field. After a months recruit training in the forest fastness of Skunk Hollow, Coe was assigned to the 69th and in October went to work at the Base Photo Section. "Well there you are baby, and I hope you're satisfied!" Weary of being scuffed with er satz promises the Turks are banking the threatening fires of German reprisals by putting the damp er on Nazi efforts to win them from tl>e side of the Allies. Lineal descendants of the paynim hordes who followed the Star and the Crescent into battle against the Crusaders, the Turks are stout Fighters and need only adequate military equipment to turn them into a first class fighting force. From where they sit astride the Dardanelles it would require only a slight forward lunge to put them in position to deliver a paralyzing body blow to the 'soft under belly' of the Axis. With the Allies in the corner for 'Younll Turkey'--'KidPahzer' will be lucky if he comes out with his gun turrets still screwed on. QuickThinking Soldier Saves Himself Work Camp Blandling, Fla. (CNS)Pvt. Peter Glod and a couple of other guys were drafted to move a batch of equipment from one building to another. A pal passed. "Where you going?" he asked. "Payline," said Glod. A small mob heard this ex change and immediately fell in b ehind Glod. All were welcomed cordially by the office r i n charge of the detail who gave them each something to carry although it wasn't a pay envelope.

December 18, 1943 TYNDALL TARGET Those Russians are on march again. Big Three Meet in Teheran With three major assaults under way in three sectors of the loog eastern front, Moscow warned Germany in a radio broadcast that the worst is yet to come, that "this winter will see a Soviet off'en si ve on a larger scal e than ever before." Moscow reminded her fighting Red army that winter "is the best time for outflanking movement, surprise raids, encirclement and .annihilation of the enemy." In one of the three offen: si ves now under way, the Russians, using perhaps roo, 000 men, including many parachute troops, were engulfing the btg industrial targets of Kirovograd and Kri voi Rog. klo ther drive was in progress north west of Gomel on the central front and south of' Nevel, in the far north. During the week, the sians had seized the Dnieper River stronghold of Cherkasy, opening a vast rail network serving the entire Nazi southern front.

The "primary targets" are 50 industrial centers considered essential to the German war machine. 1 t was said that 85 percent of all the damage inflicted in Germany has been done since 1he first of tllis year.

New and advanced fighte r planes were said to be almost r eady to make their appearance in the EUropean theater, which would mean that the escort range probably will go beyond the 800-mil e round trip which is the longest yet reported. In the Pacific air war, a great fleet of American warplanes blasted a little Japanese shipping point-Arawe, on the south coast of New Britain--wi th 356 tons of explosives, the heaviest load, ever dropped in the southwest Pacific. The day before, Linden, the only other good harbor on the H.ew Bri Uain south coast, was hit by 248 tons. The coomanding officer of the aircraft carrier Saratoga revealed that his ship made hazardous nms close to Truk, the main Jap Pacific base, in an effort to lure Jap vessels out to do battle, but apparently was not seen.


THE TYNPALL TARGET THE REPUBLIC OF THE SKY Men speak of Lightning fighters and liberator bombing planes--of battles fought above far-off places I ike Guadalcanal and Kiska, Foggia and Kunming. They speak in astonishment and pride and awe-as if it were by some miracle our air power had flung itself across alien skies to strike the foe. But these are not far-off places, they are not alien skies. To American fliers no spot upon the globe is no starry bivouac is new, no trackless path under the sun is foreign. The sky is their own Republic. It was discovered through the genius of the Wrights and explored by the pioneer vision of Curtiss, Martin, Boeing, Douglas and a host of aerial frontiersmen. Billy Mitchell was their prophet and bold captains I ike Rickenbacker and Doolittle led them on silver wings across continents and oceans unti I the world became a shrunken ball of dirt and water. They scoffed at time and laughed at distance. They flew on unti I they had carried their white star, their flag and their dream into that new Republic of the clouds. Their dream? Yes--a splendid vision of chasms bridged between nations, of peaceful commerce and ordered I iberty and human brotherhood. Now that ideal is challenged. The German brigand, the Jap pi rate, are fighting American airmen in their own vast domain. They fight on the stern frontiers of God's high heaven, where only the brave may enter and only the freeman shall stay. It is eagle country. Buzzards can not endure its sun I ight or prevai I against its defend-e rs. Look upward--the buzzards are falling--with broken wings and bloody eyes --From AAF Blue Network Broadcast Wings to Victory." Furntsfled by Special Service for use on Orientation Bulletin Boards

Here's hoping he can avoid the jinx tha t has hounded Capt. Hearn and C apt. Tur ner. We would advise him to beware of black cds, ladJer s and high chairs. We can' t help wondering why Cpl. John Megry was in Ward 4 f.rom 7 :3 0 until 9:00 one night l ast week. What makes it even more bewildering is the fact that the lights in the ward go out at 8:00 p m Taking X-rays, John? We are sorry to report that Mrs. John Blakeley w ill soon b e leaving her hospital position to assume the duties of ::: full-fledged housewife. It is with deep sadness that we note the construction of some t a r paper shacks over nea r Skunk Hollow. We don't wish the carpenters any bad luck, but a typical Florida hurricane would be most just now . Could the stamp reading, "Have you registered the birth of your child yet" o n a lette r received recently by McMurtrie have anything to do with the worried expression he h a s been w ec,ring lately'? We didn' t know he could keep a secret that well. The boys in Barracks 620 have been wondering if Barracks 619 can come up with a m atch for our "Su perman" Steve. He remained unchallenged the other night as he beat his chest and boasted tha t he was the toughest .in the world. What we can t understand is what made him so weak the next day. Dr. Charles R e i c h erter looks very professiona l as he goes about his duties in the hospital. He looks very aristocratic as he drives his car out of the main gate each evening. But he looked like a first class j;mitor a s he s coured the the other morning. Quite a comedow n for a registered optometrist, wasn't it, Charley.

THE TYNDALL TARGET Warmin' the Bench By SGT. FRANK DE BLOIS CNS Sports Correspondent is a tunny game. On saturday mornlng.:rou are hailed as the coach or the year with a wonder team on your hands and whadclaya th1nkhappens on SaturdaY night? You're a Jake and a phony w1th a bunch or bums 1n your stable. You can make mine croquet. The Chica4o Besr5, who aet all kinds of records against the New York Giants one day, were punched all over ball yard by the Waahlnlton Redakins the lolloinA Sunday. And the Slcine loet to a lot of clull'c tere called the Phil-Pitt Steaglea the week alter thll t. How about that? And how about Notre Dame? There was a team ror you. They beat Georgia Tech, Hi chi gan, Army, Navy, Northwestern and the po;ertul Iowa Seahawks. And then -while all the experts sat around with their eyes hanging clown to their knees-the invincible Irish lost one. Reroee of this nwnber one upset of the aeason we .re eleven men who play football lor the Great Lalcee Naval TraininA Station in Illinois. They beat a Notre Dame team that had been compared with Knute Roc:Jcne's best when Steve Lach, lorerly of Duke, pitched a 41-yard-forward pass to hia quarterback with 30 aeconds left in the ball game. If you lave a ecript like that to Sam Goldwyn he would think you were nuts. Notre Dame's defeat stripped the team or its cloak or invtncibllity but ranea to dim the teams aura or greatness': The Irish ended thelr season with an average gain or 313.9 yards a game to be.tter a national record established in 1937. Coach Frank Leahy's 1943 eleven was the greatest powerhouse 1n Notre Dame history. Even when they lost they looked Undimmed too, were the brilht, particular starsof .thie much-publicised tea. AnAelo Bertelli," football player of the year and Reisman award winner for 1943, waen't around at the Great Lakes lampooning, having been transferred to the Parris leland (S.C.) Marine traininA baee same time ago, but hie replacement, Johnny Lujack was there and he looked all right working oat of the T. All American Hal !back Creighton MiJler looked food, too, and so did All American End John Yoniker. All Ame-rican Guard Pat Filley and All American Tackle Ji White. In fact, all looked so food that you wouldn't think they had lost the game unleas you happened to take a quick gander at the acoreboard. cne or the stars or the Great team was Emll. Sitko, a No.tre Dame freshman last year. .Another was DeWE)Y Proctor, who is the prop-_ erty or the New York Giants, When Glant "Coach Steve Owen wired him to report last summer a runny telegram came back, in the Navy, the telegram said and it was signed, "Dewey s .slster. That s the last anyone heard or Dewey until he turned up at right halfback ror Great Lakes. He looked good in there, too. Great Lakes' triulflph was the first for the Bluejackets over Notre Dame. The Sailors. tied the Iriah, 1 to 1, during the last war and played a 13 13 draw with Leahy's tean last year. The Bluejackets' 1943 record was 10 victories and two de lea ta, which should gi .ve them the natiooal aervice techiUI1pionahip for the aecond straight year.
