IN PARTIAL PAYMENT THEREOF A quiet lagoon is now a PacifiQ graveyard for nineteen Japanese ships that only yesterday were riding at safe an chorage in its havm. .And the air fields of Truk are ally strewn with the of more than 200 planes and ravished installations For this is partial payment of an old debt incurred one black Decanber 7th, and carried on the nation's books thereafter. An honorable creditor is slowly being paid off and his YK>e cannot be easily discounted. Never, thought he, would the American Navy risk venturing within action distance of mighty Truk. But, for once, or perhaps the second time, the ML.do' s m111 was wrong. The steal thy attack on Pearl Harbor was not normally remanbered. Nor were the courageous quickly forgotten. A nation's honor had been bruised and the pain slept deeply in its people's faces. fut more was coming the bitter aloes of Bataan and regidor. The terrible story of the men of Bataan and Cor regidor who died defmding a fortress of chipped rock. regiclor 't;\1ere the living prayed hard for death Only now, are we beginning to even things up. With the assault on Truk, another installmmt is tendered of which Guadalcanal was the first. And it is plainly left to us to assure that it will not be the last. GETTING ACQUAINTED TYK> weeks ago, an event occurred which was without precedence at Tyndall Field. For the first time in the field's history a ccrnmanding officer sat in and listened as a group of enlisted men discussed various field activities and complaints frcm fellow soldiers. The occasion was the reg;ular weekly meeting of the Special Service Council held in the Post Library. The significance of Col. Charles H. Anderson's presence at the meeting is not dimin:l shed by the fact that he did not participate in the discussions, inasmuch as he had been on the field scarcely a week. He was present, ostensibly, to become acquainted with the views of the enlisted men under his canmand. AB a newly assigned c.o., the colonel, by his presence, displaved that he is interested in the welfare and attitude of his enlisted men, and few occasions could afford a greater opportunity to gather such information than at a meeting of G I represm ta t1 ves. "Pvt. Kingsly has done a pretty thorough job of training those war dogs'" QUESTION: Do YOU FAVOR NATION AL OR STATE SUPERVISION OF SOLDIERS' VOTES? BY CPL. WILLI AM JAMES CPL. ROBERT C. SHINE, Cam bridge, Mass.: "I'm in favor of national regulation of the soldiers' vote. The issue has become too 1 arge to be efficiently by individual states. SGT. P.A. TREIIOULET, New Or1 eans, La.: "Soldiers' votes should be supervised by the national government, especially in view of the limited time left in which to pass the necessary lep:islation." CPL. ROBERT M. HYDE, Winter Park, Fla.: "I believe legis-1 a tion set up by the federal government would be best. In my opinion there is a greater likelihood of the soldiers getting an opportunity to vote under national regulation. SGT. THOMAS E. BR0\1\N, Angola, N.Y.: "lf the balloting is for a state election, I believe tbe voting should be controlled by the state. However, national elections should be under the supervision of the federal govern en t. S/SGT. JOHN GEBAUER, Houston, Texas: r 8111 in favor of state supe.rvision of all balloting because the states have the experience and machinery al rea6y set up, with possibly a few exceptions. Because of their familiarity with election procedures, the states could handle their balloting much more effie len tly than if left to the federal government. GOD 1 S FAMILY The Bible reveals God as man's Heavenly Father; the Head and Arlmini strator of the Gracious Provider for His human family. If we believe in the Fatherhood of God, by no logic can we repudiate the Brother-1 hood of man. If God is our Father, then are we brothers to every individual of the com posite human race. As the true Father-son relationship necessitates a mutual love and interest, so does it r.equire amity in our economic, political and social relations. How can one love his fellow men and &t the same time kill them in war? The answer is simplified if our love has been lifted onto a higher plane than mere individual sentimeutality. Our foes are fighting not merely to destroy us, our homes and a few governmental principles which we cherish; they are fighting to destroy all possibility of Brotherhood in God's human family. All suchl enemies of Brotherhood must be destroyed before the way can be prepared for a lasting peace. The only true nobility of sacrifice which is being made in this war is by those who offer their lives that men may live in a society that is com posed of a little less selfish ness, lustful greed and other gross sinfulness on the part of individuals and nations. It is ours to make and to maintain peace and amity within God' s family. --d:tapl a.in Fr 8llkl in P ROTE STANT Sunday Sunday School, Post Chapel.9 A.M. Worship, Colored Rec Hall..9 A.M.

Firing a few effective salvoesoftheir ov.n, the Tars took the lead late in the first q..tarter and protected it well thereafter. A capac! ty crowd of -----------------1 000 filled the gym to standing room for the contest. In the starting line-np for one-handed affair frau far right center which drew applause from the spectators. The fonner Indi-Tyndall were acting Captain Finis ana star, having already put the Snowden and Art Stevens at forward, Sid Friedman at center and Wally Lawton and Bill Johnson at the guard positions. The opening whistle found Pensaco! a with Dan Y abro and Jim Birr at forward, John Brooks at center anrt Paul Killkullens and B.J. Lawrence at guard. Friedman made most of his "feeds" good to ring up 16 points as hig)1 T / F scorer fbr the evening while Birr, former allAmerican with Indiana u., was the Tars' big g1m with 17 .tallies. Yabro, who played quite a bit of ball for North Texas State Teachers, and Johnny Prooks, Louisiana Te c h court star, also contributed a fair share toward the N.A.S. victory. The two teams will n.eet again tonight in their fourth contest of the season and Tornarto Coach Pete Collodi hopes to "pull something out of the hat" in a final effort to give Tyndall their first win over the Pen sacol a q..t.in tet. Last night, Yabro broke the ice for the Sailors and T/F ret ali a ted shortly afterwards as Stevens c!llle up through a horde of navy blues under the basket and dropped one in. Tyndall kept the initiative by playing headsup ball in the early minutes of play, but the Pensacola height ann razzle-dazzle began to tell toward the end of the quarter and they held a 10-9 lead as the whistle blew. Snowden started the scoring for Tyndall in the seer ond canto as the first T / F sub stitutions saw Topperwein replace Friedman ll"ld Lawson come in for V anctergri ft.

Displaying renewed energy, the Tornarloes marie their greatest threat of the game early in the fburth canto as Topperwein scored from the floor .and F rie&uan made good two :free throws to bring the <"'ount up to 40-36. However, the N.A.S. first te!lll, which replaced the seconds when the score stood at 40-32, began to make their presence conspicuous as Birr scored thrice in quick succession, one of his shots being a ga,ue on ice, tossed in another for good measure to account for eight of nine points scored by Pensacola in the last quarter. Johnny Brooks made the last Navy tall y on a free throw. Considering their disadvantage in height and reserves, the Tyndall team acquitted itself creditably, with honors for the day going to Finis Snowden. Despite a severe fall irr last Saturday's game against Eglin, Snowden returned to the line-up at the fb!' ward position as acting captain and turned in a great performance, receiving a prolonged round of applause as he left the game in the c l o sl ng minutes of play.

Now, fighting fires and carting away the numer ous air raid casualties is Le1p ? 1g1s business, ror she has only the blunted reply or her AA batteries' to trade ror the obliterating combs she has been receiving. Scores of freewheeling carrier-based fighters left their decks last week on a surprise mission to Truk, Japan's 'Pearl Harbor' in the Carolines, and strategic supply base for her far-flung central and south Pacific poasessions. When the attack was over, the scenes of carn age resembled an ordered dupli cate of Pearl Harbor at the close of December 7, 1941, with 19 ships sunk, seven more hit and probably sunk, and more than 200 planes destroyed in the air and on the ground. It was a shrewd blow, delivered to the middle of Japan's greatly over-stretched solar plexus, that left Tojo's legs feeling as rubbery as a tand of Malayan rubber trees and had him jumping higher than an India-rubber ball. The big race or the year is now on 1n Esthon1a. In full flight across the Baltic states are sorry remnants or 26 rull German d1v1s1ons, and close behind them, onrushing columns or the Red Army, It is barely possible that the Nazis will show a clean. pair or hells to their pursuers and escape with whole skins, But the Soviets are graduallY cutting down the distance that separates them and it seems likely that the v erst is yet to come ror Hitler's rront runners, Among the known vagaries of the glider bomb is its insidious hab it of suddenly takinS off on em barrassing tangents.

'10 THE EDI'IDR OF 'lHE TYNDAlL TARGEI' I will try to answer, in part, your editorial entitled "WHY?" (Tyndall Target, Feb. 5, 1914} I was, unforttmately, transferred to this field about two months ago. You ask why the spirit is so conspicuous by its absence here at Tyndall. I believe there are many reasons; many of them are small, unimportant things, but tOgether they loom as being all-:i.nl>ortant. I can only speak as an individual, but I m1 sure that I'm expressing the opinion of more than one G. :r., particularly as a member of the permanent station complement --one of the have-rots (See foo1note #l) of the field. First, I am sure that the lack of sufficient and efficient help at the post exchange is a serious situation that does little towards building morale. Too many men who stop at the PX on their way to d.lty for cigarettes, candy, etc., find that they canrot wait mtil the clerk decided to begin waiting on the customers. Also, the prices here are higher than at any other (See footnote #2) post exchange I've ever been in. IDlY? Going to the movies here on the post is sanething you can count on' only once per week; that is, unless you have plmty of time to sweat out that ever present line still take a chance on having the window close just as you reach it--and sweat out the late show. To a penn.anmt party man who has ir regular hours of duty, going to the movies is an evmt that must be Jllanned far in advance. W:>uld two matinees help this situation any? Our squadron has a mail box system for the distribution of' mail. Unless your mail has your box m.n:nber on it you must wait at least an hour and a half after mail call for your letters to be issued. The tn11llarked mail is put away nntil all letters which are properly marked are sorted and handed out. This ridiculous system, whereby nearly everyone must sweat out ..,the mail call after the "mail call" is sanct:iruJ.ed by our C .o. ibes this systan of distril:uting the anny' s chief morale builder ,help to create any constructive spirit in the ranks? (See footnote #4) We all know that we here are a helluva lot better off than any of the GI' s figpting on the battlefronts, but as long as you asked for 1 t, I think that you should expect Jllld accept in good faith ruch well-meant criticisn. As an added thought, why not ask the pennanmt party men here how many of than would prefer overseas duty to their present If you do, be prepared for an avalanche. (See footnote #5) W1 th some revision, perhaps this could appear, at least in part, in an issue of the Target--or would you rather do all the pitching in. this league? (Editor's note: No, we wouldn't rather do all the pitching in this league, and it's high time some of the clubhouse lawyers tried their hand on the mound. However, from now on, before we let .anyone else pitch, he'll have to unmask himself and sign his name to his effort. It's hard to find batters who' 11 step to the plate against phantom hurlers. But Capt. 0.0. Freeman, Special Service Officer, has agreed to take a few swings at the above offering.) Footnotes prepared by Capt. 0.0. Special Service officer: t. If you think you're a "have-not," take a crack at Skunk Hollow and the ensuing six weeks. 2. Prices are lower since you went to press. 3. Additional theater requisitioned, approved and currently under construction. Suggestion of matinees is worthy and will be considered. 4. A check with your commanding officer reveals that the sole objective of the mail box system was to expedite.gettlng the mall to the sol dl er. If it falls to work after a fa! r trial, you'll be back to the old "mall call" line. If you want to see another system, go over to any of the other 1 arger squadrons, such as the 448th, and see a two and a half hour mall line. 5. It is hoped that the avalanche would occur regardless of condl tions on this or any other post. By KATE .SMITH The story is told about a Gennan workman who came home tired and hungry from his day of uninspired labor. Finding a bit of miserable gruel waltr lng, he lashed out at his wife for the lack of a decent meal. "Don' t bl arne me, 11 she whined. "To get bread, one has to stand in line for hours; to get vege tabies there is still another line; for fish, another line. Everywhere-it's wait, walt, walt.,,," Hearing this, the mllll went to his drawer and took out a revolver. "I can't starid it any longer, he muttered. "I'm going to kill that Hi U er. 1he terrified wife retreated to her bedroom to await news of the dreadful deed. Qne hour later the husband retumed w1 th a d&. j j ec ted a1. r. "Did you kill him? 11 whl spe red the panic-s trl cken wife. "No, he admitted.... "I coul.m't even get to him. There, too, one must walt for hours and hours 1n line.

Last wee k giant task forces of the United States Navy ranged far and wide throughout the southwest Pacific, shaking J1J1)an' s stol e n Empire to its ver y foundations. with the capture of Kwa.1 alein, almost three weeks ago, the Army and Navy have dealt Japan a series of stunning blows in quick succession. No sooner was Kwa.1 al ein in ou r control than a huge Navy task force steamed up t o J1J1)an's great air and n aval bastion, Truk Island, and bombed to smithereens 2 cruisers, 3 destroyers and a larlle numb e r of transports and smalle r vessels. Simultaneously General MacArthur's forces occupied Rooke Island, between New Guinea and New Britain, and the Green Islands a t tile northwestern tip of the So lomons chain. These operations were hardly ove r before another Army-Navy task shelled Eniwetok, westernnost atoll in the Mar shalls, and A rmy and Marine units stormed ashore to capture it (by the end of this week) it was almost entirely in our hands.) Meanwhile, in the f a r North, still another Navy task force shelled P aramushiro, great J 131Janese base in the Kurile Islands, for the second time in a fortnight. And all over the Pacific, our air forces were pounding relentlessly at Japanese strongholdsRabaul, on New Britain; Ponape, near Truk in the Carolines; Wake Island; and Japanese-held atolls in the Marshall group. But w e were still not through. Late last week a naval task force -possibly the same one that bombed .Truk --attacked Saipan in the Marianas Islands, just north of Guam. This daring assault is our deepest p enetration For Saipan is 000 miles northwest o f Truk, and only 1300 miles south of Tokyo itself. That Japan's greedy warlords were badly frightened was ob vious E'ven befb r e he l earned of the attack on Saipan, Pre mi e r Tojo fired Field Marshal GEneral S ugiyama, chief of the army staff and Admiral of the fleet Osami Nagano chief of February 20 -26 the n aval staff. Toj o added chie f of the army staff to his own duties, which already included Pranier, War Minister and Minister of Munitions. And Navy Mi?:J.ister Shigetaro Shimada took over the job of chief of the naval staff. All this was explained as a move to make the war ad ministration ''more efficient." From tile looks of things, it would have to becane efficient indeed --or else. The Red Army celebrated its 26th birthday 1 ast week.

There were 160 men who went to the South Pacific at the same time that I did and about 75 of them lost their lives at Hickham Field, which, as everyone knows, was one of the hardest hit fields in that area.
