DECLINE OF AN EMPIRE The bright new paint the Nazis used to color the walls and roof of their fortress Ellropa is flaldng rapidly as the the true color of things becomes apparent. Once the joy of every German, Berlin does not now stir up pride in the German breast. It is a. city that has lost its aplomb. No longer do the glittering parades collllland its avenue, no tributaries follow 1n the wake of the great speeches, md where once force held undisputed swey, dead winds riot 811ong the doubtful dreans of its leaders. Wh1l e Berlin lived, Gennany lived, and the bright s rd of Nazi con!Jlest vied 11'1 th the rays of the morning SliD. By now, the broad streets had been swept clean of the ill-fated sands of the Desert Campaign, and no index to the tragic battle-losses in I\lssia oould be formd 1n the faces of the people. True, there were deys vben the stores had little or nothing to sell. And the chtll Winter winds that cane oould be depended on to freeze a Nazi as quickly as anyone. Of all things there was a lack, but this was because of the war, the people said, the war that se!11ed to demand so much more of a citizen of the Reich. '!hen, out of the nigpt froot Britain, came the great flying madlines of the RAF, and the Flying Fbrtresses and the Libera-tors flew straight frooJ. the sun. Like a giant adver sary who is threatened for the first time by a weaker foe, Berlin sputtered and spoke feelingly of but none Clll!eo Berlin was coming in for its share now, and after each attack more of the city fell into shambles and the still alive had to d:lg themselves out of the ruins. Having so'Ml the seeds of fury the city did not fail to reap the harvest of the ltUrlwind. Behind the glowing scmes painted :l:br then by the Leader the Gennans had caught a quick glimpse of their bridge of sighs. Rapidly nearing it from the Eastern approach, were the lost annies d'f the Ukraine, while toward it from the West, roved the people who walked in the shadow of the death fuat fell swiftly fran the skies. And now, fran the Leader's ov.n lips they heard that Gennany not win the war. And as the conviction of defeat grew, the great lie became IIDre manifest. fut the bombs continue to fall, and the hurt today, will be toiiDrrow' s dead; for this is the decline of ll1 E!Jlli re and oblivion is assured fbr all. AIR DISCrPLINE Discipline mesns obedience, subnission to oontrol. Air discipline for the pilot means the full of responsibilities, strict observance of all rules of safe flight and subnission to oontrol by strpSriors and others rendering advisory services needed by the pilot. Air discipline begins long before the pilot takes tile plane off the ground and continues long after it has been parked on the line and swi tehes cut off. Air discipline demands the best the pilot has in lmowledge, aler1ness, effort, and skill. A terrific price mey be exacted fran those wh:> give less. In the md, air discipline means successful fligpt. Safety Education DiviiJion Control Command WHY BE' DECENT? IT PAYS OFF The rewards are natural and supernatural. You taste the natural rewards right here on earth; real tangible rewards like good health, clear conscience, self respect, love from others, peace of mind. And just as real will be the supe -rnatural heavenly glory, divinized soul, glonfied body, face to face possession of God. How do 1t1e kno1t1 natural rewards come to us decent? Human ex perience, a view of people's li'ves, show it. How about the supernatural? It takes faith, trust in God to belie:ue they come. But it's a reasonable faith. For God makes good. TOO LATE. Smart peoPle play safe odds on happiness. Dopes butt their heads against concrete facts. You can't win except by Living life God's way. Sure, virtue looks dull, vice seems attractive. But live awhile. Watch the payoffs. Sin catc.hes up fiJi th us. The choo-choo shuffling of paresis, wasted brain tissues, sing their. refrain. The loneliness ojemf>ty arms puni.shes the selfish. Conscienc plagues the thief, the fallen Tho late they learn. NOT FAIR... We all corrrPlain at times: "It 1 s net fair; the good suffer; the evil prosf>er. Wait, Wa-it for the final Payoffs. Gamblers let suckers win at first. But suddenly they move in. The wheels of God's Justice grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly well. Vice holds the king, but virtue holds the Ace. SO IJJN'T .Let the bars down. Don 1t Pitch principles au.ay. Don't sW:Lllow the gag, "What's the difference?" The slyest entry of Satan into a soldier's soul is through "the blues." Yet you dOn't dissolve difficulties by tears in your beer. Self-pity never helps. It demoralizes. J.forale is based on morals from tdlich it stems. It is built on duty. Itisn't a matter of qhoice, but of obligation. It is a matter of strict PrinciPles that are eternal. Don't fall for f>hony hokum. .A new orde' r is forming. For the war will end, but new order or.old order, God's standards never change. CLing to them. PROTESTANT Sunday A SOLDIER'S PRAYER The worLd is u.eary now, and blue ... The things We hoped to have come true S ee11 jar auny1 or not at alL, Oh God. please hear our call! Tie alL have dieams and. hoPes ana pLans; Our future lies in Your loving hands.

I'ebruary 5, 1944 THE TYNDALL TARGET Page 3 TORNADOES WIN FIRST-HALF CROWN OUR FRONT COVER DEFEAT COAST GUARDSMEN, 50-35, IN USO BASKETBALL LOOP PLAY-OFF; MEET APALACH FIVE HERE TONITE TYNDALL HOMES RENTAL SCALE DETERMINED BY ARMY REGULATIONS The Tyndail Tornadoes wrote the first page in the field's basketball history last Tuesday night in the post gym when they downed the Coast Guard Eagles in the play-off for the first half championship of the USO League. The score was 50-35. Marldng the first season that Tyndall has had a post court squad, the Tornadoes completed the initial leg of the USO competition losing but one game. In view of the many queries recei veo on the ren tel scaJ e for Tyndall's new housing proJect, the Post Adjutant ann .he Billet ing Officer requested that the foJ lowing facts be brought to the attention of Target readers.

However, the tars regained their sea 1 egs in the closing quarter of the. fracas, but by that time the damage h a d been clone. Art Stevens, Sirl Friedman and Bill Snowden were the big grms for T/F. Stevens, play ing the center position, founcl the basket seven times for a total of 14 points, while Friedman and Snowrl.en each scored 11. Green was high scorer for the Eagles with 14, most of which were garnered in the last half of the game. Pete Coll odi anrl Bill Sollon were the other two Tornado start e rs and both gave commendable performances fro11< their guard positions. Apparently confident that their first half 1 e ad would be n1o re than enough, the Tyndall men loosened up on the defense in the second canto to pennit the Eagles to cane within a respectable diE tan ce. Touted as a dangerous team on a small court, the Guards mEn finally acclimated thsnsel ves to Tyndall' s regulation court in the closing minutes of the third quarter, mel. for a time it looked as though the sailors migll t close the gap on the landlubbers.

S/Sgt. Ernest M. Sciullo, one of our students, has been in the hasp i tal for some time. The obstacle course was too tough for him, as be broke his ankle, but we all hope that Ernie is on that speedy road to recovery and that he may start his gunnery school training in the near futurL Also to the rest of our men in the hospital, Szymanski, Brown, Caruso; Pierce and Fields, with all the good care that they get, they all want to finish what they star ted, to be a gunner, so here' s hoping we see you all soon.

1944 The week's biggest news, from the viewpoint of most Americans, was our at tack on the Japanese-held Marshall Islands, in the west central Pacific. Last &mday, following a month of intensive air bombardment, a mighty American na,val annada sailed boldly into the island grrup and heavily shelled important enemy installations. On Monday, pow e:rf\11 forces of U.S. soldiers and Marines stonned ashore on the tiny .islands .of Kwaj alein a toll, and by week' s end had gained complete control of Roi Island (and its airfield) and' were !Dak:tng steady progress in their other attacks. According to the officer in charge of the Marshall assault, Vice Admiral Reymond A. ance, our casual ties thus far have been "moderate, n blt "we January 30 February 5 MARSHALLS TARGET OF U.S. ARMADA ( MARIANAS f c;uAM o 500 1000 AT EQUATOR OISTAHme is being widened and deepened against fierce German In mid-week, the Gennan "Gustav Line;" 40 miles to the 'south, crumbled on a four-mile front American forces broke through into unfortified ter rain. 'lhe Gennms have another de fense ltne, nine miles north of the Gustav line, which our forces have not yet reached. But it, as well as the nowshattered Gustav line, will be useless to the Nazis if they can not repel the threat posed by the Allied beach-head in their rear. The fbrces in this beach-head (now amounting to several divisions) are already only 40 miles from the .main Anglo-American forces fighting in the south. Unless they are quickly which seems very unlikely, the German commander Von Kessel.ring will have to retreat to still another defense line--this time above lbne. Several weeks ago, the Red Anny drove across the pre-war border of Russia into Poland, just south of the Pripet Marshes on the central sector of the Russian front. Now, dur ing the past week, they have forced the Nazis back into Estonia, 1,n the northern sector west of LEningrad. At this point the RussianEstonian border runs for 30 miles betwem Lake Pei pus on the south and the Gulf of Finland on the North (see map on the back of this page). The Germans are being forced back through this ]1arrow bottle neck; and the odds are that they have sem Russia. for the 1 ast time --wwhich probably won 1 t d1 sappoin t many of than.

Quite possibly the next major Rus-sian effort will be made in the great bend of the Ihepr River, on the sru them sector of the front. This area has been relatively donnant for some time, and it is here that the Germans have their deepest pmetration into Illssian soil. Gennan fbrces near K1 rovograd (see map) are dangerously close to encirclenmt, and the Nazis recmtly admitted withdrawals in this area. .. ... 'lhe great bombing offensive against Gennany goes on. According to figures recently released in London, the R.A.F. a1 ond dropped 18, 000 tons of high explosives on Germany during the month of January. Of these, 9,300 tons were awarded to Berlin, which ac cording to Swedish reports is now a "dead city. In these mass raids, the length of the attack is as important as the tonnage of bombs dropped. In the London "Blitz," the Nazis dropped almost 1,000 tons of TNT on the British capital during one 12.:..hour period --thus giving the Lon doners time to put out fires, do work, etc. In their 1 a test big raid, the British rained 2, 500 tons of TNT on Berlin in less than 30 minutes--that is, at the rate of 100 tons a minute for 25 min utes. To add inatl t to injury, the British will often follow up a mass raid with an attack by their to" bomberE; M'lich do relatively little damage but keep Berlin's populace or edge.

Tiger' Ace Routs 30 Nazi Planes London (CNS)-Maj. James H. Howard is America's first air-hero 'eteran of both the Atlantic and Pacific wars. Maj. Howard, who once fought with the famed "Fly ing Tigers" in China, recently outfought 30 Nazi fighters for half an hour over Oschersleben to protect a formation of Flying Fortresses on a bombing miss ion. H e was officially credited with two German planes destroyed, two probables and one damaged. The rest fled. German Planes Use Searchlights, Reds Say Moscow (CNS)-German night fighters are using two new tricks on the Russian front, according to reports here. The Germans have mounted searchlights on their planes to hunt the skies for Russian aircraft. The other German wrinkle is the use of signal lights in the tails by which an airman would flash directions to his colleagues following him on the location of Russiari planes.

5, 1944 --Instructors Squadron--SILVER STAR STIRS THOUGHTS; WINE'S CREDIT GOOD All the men in the Instructors Squadron are a little squint eyed this week as a result of keeping a sharp look-out for the Inspecting Generals. I did get a good look at the Silver Star and I wonder just how long a GI has to stay in the army to get one. I kinda took a fancy to it. All of the boys were wearing a weary and haggard look the result of working nights and doing P. T. just the same. I t1 s really tough and some of the fellows were even too tired to fall asleep. Sgt. Weatherby was the proud owner of two cars this week. Neither would run but they both pushed Because there is a war on the only patriotic thing for him to do was sell one of them so he sold his town car and kept the sport job. The men got their pay a few days ago. Everyone yon talked to was broke, but it's surprising to see the way Sgt. Wine borrowed $75 in less than 75 minutes. Got a good look at Sgt. Pro.ffitt Sunday under a car. He was covered with grease from head to toe. After l)e finished and stood next to his lovely-wife I saw how the phrase "Beauty and the Beast" originated. Saw Sgt. Waller lugging a huge box full of stationery that he ordered for some of the fellows in the squadron. It took the order so long to get some of the fellows thought that Wal ler was running a small swindle of some kind. I know better than that. After all, it was Waller that said, and I quot. e, "I love my wife, or any reasonable facsimile. I'm sorry to report that our basketball team lost its first contest, but I have the promise of one of the big wheels on the team that they will certainly do much better the next time although they only lost by three points. -Sgt.

Why Sgt. Hasko is always carrying an ash tray around with him--the s!llle is no puzzle to a certain Sgt. who knows the answer. What Sgt. Fearer would do if he didn't get that sugar report every day? Why Pfc. Murphy's hair is no longer curly? Is something getting in your hair, Murph? THINGS WE SAW AND HEARD: We h ear that pfcs.
