According to Capt, C.F. Brunner, builder of the bridge, anyone dropping a coin in the box pnd ringing the bell may make a wish and be reasonably sure or that wish coming true.

Finally, we left our table and walkerl over to the "mystery man" and politely d.emanded an explanation. With an 8Jllllsed smile, "Mr. T. c. Bechtel informed us that he was connected with the 3rd Air Force, as his insignia indice. ted, in the capac ity of a technical ad visor. He is "on loan to tl'le 4th Service Command and is working with the '1;/F Ormance Detactlnent. 1he triangular insignia is that of a non--combatant, and his uniform that of an officer, but he is not rated as an officer. He explained that he is one of the 1,000 automotive advisors now working with the Army and that the question of their rank or gra.rle has never been clearly defined. * The bivouac story o r the week concerns the corporal of the guard who w ent out to check on his m e n and railed to r eturn. Afte r a l ength o r time had elapsed, Post 8 called ror the corporal o r the guard and the officer. or the guard sent out ,the sergeant or the guard to answer the call.

Among the more .important COIIJDdi ties to be conserved are articles of clothing, and I believe the personnel on this field are doing their best to cooperate With the conservation program in this respect.

An Irate Officer To the Ed! tor: The in8Uguration of the "courtesy card" system should go a long way in keeping officers and enlisted men on thei. r toes as far as military courtesy is concernel3. I tmderstand that officers, too, have been issued the courtesy cards, but that these officers' cards can be "picked up" only by a. ranking officer. Why? A breach of mil! tary courtesy is a breach of mil! tary courtesy, regardless of wether an officer or an enlisted man C(JIIIII.its it. If an officer is guilty of a breach of courtesy in the presence of an enlisted m8Il certainly the officer s!nuld be subject to the Slllle reprimand meted out to an en listed man under reversed condi tions? Consider this case. Gr8Il ted that walking around with your htnds in your pockets is a most natural tendency, it is still verboten in military circles. Yet, on several occasions an officer has walked over 8Ild p rimanded a group of Gis for carrying the! r hands in the! r pockets and this same officer, while addressing the men, has a hand in his pocket --and even walks away :from the group with the hand still in his pocket.

April 15, 19lj.ll ON OCTOBER 16, 1941, Ge nnan ,troops entered the great Rus sian city of Odessa. Last week they left. In those two sentences is contained the. essence of the war between Germany and the Soviet Union. In 1941 the Germans entered Odessa as con querors. Last week when they abandoned the city, they were on the way out of Russia for good. Odessa is the fifth largest city in the Soviet Union, and its largest southern port. The nation that controls OdesBa to a large extent controls the Black Sea as well. For this reason the recapture of Odessa is a great victory; but when we remember that Odessa was --with the exception of Minsk --the only large Soviet city remaining 111. Genuan hands, its fall takes on significance far even its military importance. The recapture of Odessa completed the isolation of more than 100,000 Gel"II1an and Ru-manian troops still holdirtg out in the Crimean Peninsula far to the east. The Crimea has been in German hands since September 1941. The westward drive of the Soviet armies isolated these troops from all 1 and communication several months ago. The fall of' Odessa has now also cut them f.rom easy sea communication with German f'orces on the mainland. The Red Army was quick to take advantage of' this situation, anrl. last week three sepa.rate Soviet f'orces drove THE TYNDALL TARGET Page 5 ..,.April 915 driven the Germans completely out of that long neckof land in the eastern Crimea known as the Kerch Peninsula. The Ger man High Command cheerfully explained that "German troops disengaged themselves in hard fighting toward positions far ther south." But the cold truth is that the Russians overrunning the Cr.imea at a rate that has hardly equalled in any other stage of the Russo-German war. Farther to the Soviet troops of the First and Second Ukrainian Armies continue to smash forward at an impressive rate. The Russian city of Tiraspol, one of the two river crossings left to German troops east of the Dneister, was captured. in mid week. West of the encircled Rumanian city of Jassy, Soviet forces drove f'orty miles directly into Rumania, while other Russian troops pushed .across the prewar border of' Czechos lovakia (an area now occupied by Hungary). * IN .THE PACIFIC 1 ast week, Japan's "invincible" armed forces got another taste of' America's growing air power.

The Japanese, who early in the war seized Attu, Agattu and Kiska, have been driven away and the Aleutians once again are occupied by the U.S.A ., providing stepping-stones in the essentiol United Nations supply routes across the Pacific to Soviet Russia. Land action in the Pacific was conf'ined to New Britain where after months of bitter resistance the Japanese de fenses suddenly collapsed like a punctured balloon.

Durocher liked the spavined beauty's footwork and assigned him to cover first In a ten-minute workout, nothing got by the plug.

All of these states provide for voting in their primaries only by state absentee ballots, covering Federal, state and local officials. The WD post card referred to in the table is WD AGO Form 560 which has been used in elections since 1942. Your CO should be able to give you this form, but if you can't get it, you may write a leHer using the same wordage that is on Form 560. Don't forget to put your party affiliation on your application for a state absentee ballot as primary elections are for party candidates only. Remember, also, to print your name and serial number under your signature because some state officials have complained that they have been unable to read sig natures. With the exception of Georgia, which last year lowered its voting age to 18, all servicemen in these states must be at least 21 at the time of the election to be eligible to vote. Some states require ab sentee voters to take steps in addition to filing a ballot application, so if you're not sure of your eligibility to vote, you had better write to your secretary of state.
