Copy Prepared Under supervision Of Pub! ic Relations Officer. Printino and Photography by Base Photographic & Reproduction sect i o n. Art work by Dept. of Training Drafting Department. The Tyndall Target receives aaterial supplied by Camp N .ewspaper Service, War Dept., 20IS E. St., New York City. Credited lia-terial aay NOT b e epublished without prior peraission from CNS .. With Malice Toward None It was Good Friday, always the 'M:>rst night of the year, but the evening of April 14th, 1865, found the theater of John T. Ford, in Washington, filled to its capacity. It had been announced both President Lincoln and GEneral Grant would show themselves -to the public at Ford's, and alorig with the inveterate pl eygoers cm1e the noisy eel e brants of the North's recent victory over the South to feast their ruriosl ty. The eccentric John Wilkes Booth, eminent Shakespearean actor, and noted for the ili ty of his perfonnances, was appearing with Miss Laura Keane in a well-lmown play of the dey. But, nnsuspBcted by any one, Booth had written new and terrible lines for the play, and as his dark eyes flashed up at the Presidential box he could see the chief pro tagpnist in the drll!la that \\Ould shortly unfold itself, chatting easily with frimds. Along in the third act it happened. Stealthily making his way to the rear of the P resident 1 s stall, the deluded actor, athirst with passion fur the injuries he im agined had been visited on tl)e South, shot the President through the back of the head and then., knifing his friend, Major Rathbone to the floor, jumped over the rail to the stage, shouting, "Sic senper tyrannts, and made his escape through the wrngs to his waiting horse. Thus died one of the noblest of mm. Abraham Lonooln, six temth President of the llni ted States, 1861 -1865, at the hands of an assassin. The internecine strife had weigped heavily on Lincoln's heart, for despite the galling 6bj ections of Edwin M. Stanton, his Secretary of War, Lincoln could not ?ring htrn s elf to regard "those rebels" as other than misguided children who had strayed the fold. Consequmtly, "\'/hen the news of Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House, flashed over the wires through the night of April. 9, the President's first spokru v.ords were, "thank God they've come hane." For him it was no victory-these grievous four years of Civil War had bled white and exhausted the defeated states of the South and evffi the victorious North reflected to som e degree the ravages o f that blind and terrible domes tic struggle. Now the war was over, and the nation was busy binding up its wounds. But Lincoln k,new that the return to the ways of peace would of itself accelerate the nation's progress, and so bring it nearer to the greatness of its intended destiny. His plans for the reconstruction of the South were the sort an indulgent father makes fur a wayward son, finn, but filled with kindliness and reprieve. These surely, were his thoughts, as f>..is carriage Picked its way through the paraders that lined both sides of P ennsylvania Avenue and hailed him happily as he rode by on his wey to Ford's thea ter. And so the year 1865 brought concurrently to the nation a victory and a greater loss. For long after the shouting and the tumult over the former had died dom, people in a new c entury were still talking about a man in the old for like his Gettysbur g Address he was of them and by than and for them to the very end. With Charity To All" 1 Where as the Senate of the [Jni ted States, devoutLy recognizing the supreme authority and just government of ALmighty God in aLL the affairs of man and of nations; has by a resoLution requested the President to designate and set apart a day jar nationaL prayer Qnd humiLiation; and Whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men to ou.n their dePendence upon the overruLing power of God, to con fess their sins and transgressions in humbLe sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance wiLL L ead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the truth, annow;tced in the HoLy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations onLy are bLessed whose God is the Lord; And insomuch as we know that by His divine L"aw nations, Like individuals, a-re subjected to punishments and this lJ.XJrld, may we not justLy fear that the awful calamtty of ctvd war which now desolates the land m ay b e but a punishment upon us for our preSWTtptuous sins, to the needful and of o;tr. nattonal reformation as a whole people? We have been the rectpHnts of of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we h ave gram in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever gram. But we h,ave forgotten God. We have forgotten th' e gracious. hand, which. preserved us in peace and multipL i ed and enriched and streng thene d us, and we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too prowl to pray to the God that made us. It behooves us, then, to humbl e ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our n ationaL sins, and to pray for clemency and joregi veness. Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully con curring in the views of the Senate, I do by this my proclamation designate and set apart Th-u.rsday, tht! 30th of APril, 1863, as a day of nationaL humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the people to abstain on that day from their ordinary secular p ursuits, and to unite-at their several places of pubLic worship and their respective homes in keeping the day hoLy to the Lord and devoted to .the humble discharge of the religio1J,s duties proper to that solumn occasion. All this being done in sin,cerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hofJe -authorized by the teaching that the united cry of the nation uiLL .be heard on high and answered with blessings no Less than the pardon of our nationaL sins and the restoration of our now divided and suffering country to its former happy condi tion of unity and peace. In witness whereof I have hereunto set m1 hand and caused the seaL of the United (SeaL) States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington; this 30th day of March, A.D. 1863, and of the Independence of the United StatP.s the eightyseventh. By the President: ABRAHAN LINCOLN William H.

A glance at Collodi's record leaves no doubtasto his qual ificru ions for the job. He began playing basketball back in 1923 and has been playing and coaching ever since. Duquesne University court fans will remember him as the sparkplug of the school's five in the late1201s. The completion of his college basketball career by no means spelled the end of his participation in the game, for following his graduation, Collodi decided that basketball was in his blood and immediately accepted a coachi.ng offer from a western Pennsylvania high school. In the years that followed, Pete established his reputation as a coach, first by guiding the Middlesex High School squad through six successful seasons and then accepting a similar position atthe Sharon, pa., High School, where in IS TORNDOES' COACH Sgt. Pete Collodi seven years as mentor his teams won 113 games, losing but 17. Shortly before the war cal led him from his duties at Sharon, he was seriously considered for the coaching position at ColgateUniverslty.

Shofner of the U.S. Marines. The major, who was one of the party of 10 who es caped from the Jap prison camp at Davao, spent last week end here visiting with his brother, Major Emory Shofner, post finance officer. Unable. to comment officially on the recently released Jap atrocity stories, the Marine Corps major stated that until the Navy Department gave its approval the most he. could say was "I t was rugged! Major Shofner and nine other American prisoners made their escape from Davao, on the island or Mindanao in the Philippines, on April 4, 1943, and eventually made thei r wa;y to Australia. On his being back in the United States, he characterized his escape as the last in a series of amazingly fortunate events. "I was first ordered to Guain from San Diego;" explained the major, "then, two days before I was to sail, the orders were changed to read an Asiatic station. This would have meant serving at Peiping or Tientsin, China, or aboard the p, S. s. Houston. The Peiping and Tientsin forces surrendered on the day war was declared and the u.s; s. Houston was sunk j n the battle of Java Sea. However, when I reached Shanghai, my orders were again changed, this time to the Marine garrison at Shanghai. We were evacuated from Shanghai to the Philippines one week before war was declared. I was on Bataan and later Corregidor. Guam was taken by Japan during the first week of the war. You know what happened to the prisoners at Shanghai. Major Shof'ner was person8.l.ly awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by General MacArthur and in add! tion to the Silver Star wears ribbons symbolizing three presidential unit Cita tions.

P ap:e 6 THE TYNDALL TARGET NEWS FROM THE --Squadron E-Cullen And "E" Flag Return; Sargent Is Corporal An old !amili ar face to those in Squadron "E" has just returned, and i t is that of our comp e ten t mail clerk, Pfc. Cullen. After a fifteen day furlough, visiting his home in Buffalo, N.Y., be states that it is quite a chore adjusting himself to the Army ron tine once again. Due to a loss of approximately 200 men in Class H-8 journeying to Apalachicola for a brief stay, the work is much easier here. Needless to say, the men have to be cared for and looked after there as well, but at least tem porarily it is not quite the mad house as it was last Sunday when the new class, ( 4-11, en rolled. Much credit is given to all in the squadron this week for having won the "E" flag again. Al!TO st thinking it was a thing of the past, we say, "Nice going, boy3.." Though we were not 100$ perfect, a score of 94 is nothing to be laughed at. This in itself is quite a morale builder; win the nag, have the entire staff in better spirits, passes given to a number o! men, consequently the men seeing something to strive for, and generally everyone feeling better. Maybe it is an unfair thing to reveal, but our basketball team suffered another loss, this time to Squadron "B", by a score of 27-38. 'lie haveCJie particular Duty Cpl. here, and he is Cpl. Sargent. A -bit confusing is it not? We will wager that be is contemplating his next pranotion, when he will be then known as Sgt. Sargent; then it really will be a compl i cated a!lai r. Everyone will agree that the six men in the squadron who are awaiting Cadet appointments, are pitching right in whole-heartedly with the work there.

AJ though the tables have tnrnerl in the past months, many u.S. fighting men who were caJJght in the midst of that treacherous ini ti aJ assaJl t can never hope to personally avenge the stab in the back. For too many, December 7 and 8 at Pearl Harbor and Clark Fiel rl markerl their final effort in the service of the:!. r country. For an equal ntmber, it meant long crutches or, at best, a military career far from the front 1 ines of battle. Among the 1 atter is S /Sgt. Albin Simonns, former combat crew member assignerl to Clark Field. Simontis is now at Tyn dall, awaiting a C.D.D. because of wounds received frolli bomb fragruents while rushing from a hangar to a plEne on the afternoon of December 8, 1841. "As I, with others," relater'! Simonds, "was nmning across the field, one bomb fell near me. We all fell to the grounti but t14U pieces of shrapnel hit both of my legL While the others and I lay helpless, J ap Zero fighters attacked us again and s t rafeti all the buildings anrl planes on the grounti. Fifty four Jap bombers and 70 Zeros were in the at tack, 1 eav lng the field a mass of wreckage and f1 !l'lles.

However, two days 1 ater, Sin.onds fomd himself on one of the STtall inter-is! ann boats that was supposerll y evactating the womded to Corregitior. For some mexpl ainerl reason, the boat did not stop at Corregidor, bitt con-' tin ue n to thread i t s way among Albin Simonds the islanrls for 27 nays until it finally reached. Australia. While on CJ ark Field, Sgt. Simontis was a 111ember of the same squatiron as Capt. Col in Kelly was in, anrl without rle trac ting any glory from one of the war's first heroes, Simontis has always felt that the crew members of Capt.

When they leave, all our be s t w i s h e s g o w 1 t h t h em f rom every permanent man in the outfit. Cpl. Fialkowski seems to have a shadow or something following him on every field he goes to. Also, to make matters 'WOrse, he spends at least 2 hours on the telephone nightly, and I know that people just don't talk that long to shadows. Something tells me that the little shadow has brunette hair. One of our students received a wound from a machine gun bu 11 e t when it blew up near him. It went through his outer and inner garment and nicked him 'on the arm, although it dido' t eause very much harm, it gave him quite a scare. Sgt. He'tlbe_rg was standing near and he a free singe !ran the explosion. By the way, the-student's name was Pvt. Lee R. Canstock. Every Friday night at G. I. time, the students working in the sup ply room have themselves quite a time. Last Friday we had a very entertaining jam session. Pvt. Laccone on his accordion and Ralph with his vocal cords all oiled up gave out with some of the most en tieing music we've heard in a long time. We plan on making Pvt. Laccone an instructor so that we can have music' like that all the time. And so friends, we close this meeting with the question of who was the fellow that started the song Mardiaz noats?

Games will be played on Monday and Wednesday nights until the league schedule is completed. In the initial games, high scoring honors went to Gunn of racks 2 wi tb 14 points, and Anderson of Barracks 3 with 13 tallies. Jenkins, Burns and Mitchell also played outstanding ball for their teams. Our glee club made its bow on the radio last Sunday afternoon and was a huge s u c cess. Many favorable comments have been heard on the s i n g i n g o f o u r boy s wb o probably will be heard for half an hour tanorrow over station WDLP. Last Wednesday night the glee club entertained the boys at, the nearby gunnery camp of Apalachicola. One of the outstanding social events ever sponsored by our squadron was held last Thursday night in the Recreation Hall when the War Bond dance was featured. Pretty girls from Panama City and Port St. Joe, attired in natty evening gowns, acted a s dancing partners, and an enjoyable time was had by all. Music for dancing was furnished by the Tyndall Field post orchestra, with songs by Frankie P erry as an added attraction. Outstanding feature of the evening was the awarding of War Bonds to five lucky persons. The dance was just a part of what the 30th is doing to help make the Fourth War Bond drive go over the top. The one sad note in the week's events was the trouncing our bas-ketball team suffered Saturday night at the bands of the Q M qoin tet, 39-20. The game was played in the huge Post gymnasium, and marked the first time that athletic teams from our squadron and QM ever participate d in games up on the main portion of the post. Appa rently ou r boys were dazed by the bright lights or something, as they failed to display their usual good f orm and never offered a serious threat to the opposition.

Their opening guns in what appears to be a new era in Tyndall sports are trained on one or the nation's top-ranking basketball teams, the Naval Air Station five at Pensacola. Given the go-ooead siWial by Col. C.H.

During the past seven days they have scored three convincing vic tories over neigpooring opponents. Last Saturday they druhbed the A pal achicol a five, 61-16. On Tuesday they domed their firsthalf tuli1ers-up in the League, the Coast Guard Ea.:1;les, 44-27 in a son1ewhat roughly played ball ga111e.
