Perhaps a note !rom General Eisenhower would be reassuring but the Germ ans have only to view their crumbling cities to better tinder stand the delay out or which has been born the suspense thaL kills. This week, while out for bigger game, airmen of the U.S. Eighth Air paused long enough over Germany to do a bit of ruffled grouse shqoting and succeeded in bagging 119 of Goering's tame birds. The American's ability to flush the wary German grouse was last evidenced on April 11, when 126 of the highly ruffled Luftwaffe got their heads shot off for their pains. The Nazis are belatedly finding out that des pite the sub-zero temperatures, five miles up can get to be hotter than Hades when the Yanks start pouring it on. Apparently Goering's vaunted boasts that his Luftwfffe is cool and seas.oned means nothing to a hot Yankee pilot. BY this time it is perfectly obvious to an observing world that the Japanese in Man1pur stand 1n high disfavor with the local gods or India. Long be!ore the !irst or the big rains the TokYo-inspired attempt to win an invasion base 1n Man1pur must be deemed a washout. Heavy attacks on Imphal and fn the Koh1ma area have won nothing !or the warriors o! the sun Emperor ex cept to assure them or an accelerated entry into the Nippon ese equivalent or Nirvana. The Japanese now have more than an aggressor's share or 111-starred ventures and the present Mani:pur !1asco is not likely to be their last.

As m8Ily as 4,000 bombers a day have been dropping tons 0 f bombs on the :railroad lines and centers that one day soon wili be. called upon to transport men and materials to meet the onslaught of' ti:ie united Nation's invasion force. Since March 2, at least 64 vital in western Europe have felt the heavy h8Ild of' the American 8Ild British air forces. And Secretary Stimson says that the transportation system "appears to have been shaken badly." Thursday's raids were of what the Allies have been handing ou t every day since the powerful. blows J>eg8Ilo Four thous 8Ild Allied pl8Iles were out for the attacks. They dropped sou1 e 7, 000_ to-ns of bombs. They hit 15 1 arge rail way centers and numerous ali fields in F<"ance and Belglum Brl,tish bombers, in night forays, struck at railway junctions .and also at German/fortifications along the Fr'ench coast. So violent were some of the explosions, press dispatches reported, that houses shook across the channel in England. And the weather was ripe for invasion. The driest and sunniest spring since the Nazis attacked Belgimn and the Netherlands four.years ago this week has put the terrain of western Europe in fine 'condi t:i.on for ground 'fighting. The German high command, indicating that apparently .it does not expect the invasion to come .for some time, pointed out in a broadcast that the Allied air offensive has not yet risen to the intensity of which it is capabie. 1 fill.

Gen. Ira C. Eaker's Mediterranean air force, but it was not until mid-March tliat Allied bombers began drilling the wells in earnest. How well they did their job is indicated by General Eaker's recent statement that Ploesti' s oil output is down to one-'Eourth of its former level. With their fortunes already at low ebb the Nazis must further reconcile themselves to the new low in their high-octane Romanian -oil stocks. On only one ou t 20 miles .tnl and fiom the Adriatic coast, the 8th has been unable to make much progress.

!I N THE PX JOOK box Bing Crosby was singing "I Found a Million Dollar Baby, and there was a confusing babble of voices from hungry gtm ne;s clamoring for coffee and egg sandwiches. The musical bell on the ticket machine at the entrance to the Post Ex.1hange was ringing frantically. There so much noise that Lou Finkle, the veteran one-stripe KP 'PUshei" who daily awed the KP' s at No. 6 Mess Hall with his stentorian orders, did not hear the soft voice of Miss Della Martin as she asked permission to sit in his booth. She repeatec the request, anc Lou blinkec and blushed as he looked up. "S-s-s-sure, sure," h e stammered. He reached across the table to move the drab remains of a butterscotch sumlae to the next booth, and he wiped the sleeve of his coveralls ac;oss the sticky table top. Della her long dark eye-1 ashes in a:pp reci ation, and Lou 1 s heart soared to his tonsils as she sat down opposite him and sipped daintily at her offee. '!he KP pusher kept his eyes con c 'entrated on his raisin pie, most of the time as she sat there, but once in a while he stole a furtive glance across the table. For months Lou had been admi;.ing Della as at her station behind the candy counter she brushed away .the Tyndall Field wolves. His admiration, howeve.r. was strictly from a distance. For one thing, Finkle told himself, "I can't_ .let me KP' s see me aroun' no dame. Dey'll t'ink I'ma sissy if 1 get mixed up wit' a skoit. Besides, she wouldn 1 t pay no 1 ten tion to a mug like me. She's so pretty she's got all da guys on da fi el' in love wi t1 he1." Be had never been as close to her as he was today, with their feet almost touching beneath the table. He wondered how he could say souiethihg to her. Lou's admiration of Miss Della Martin /as nv t to be thought p arti cul arl y unusual, for everyone on the .field agreed that she w .as indeed a lovely dish. She had neatly bobbed black that softly brushed her shoulders, her naturally brunette skin was tanned to a delicious golden shade, and her throat looked as cool and smooth as a magnolia petal. Her jet eyes sparkled, and she was the most efficient sal esgi;l the PX had ever had. People looked back at her when they passed he1 on the street, and they were not disappointed. Her legs were good; herwalk was smooth. And if she had worn a chestful of medals no one woulC. have noticed them. But she finished her coffee and left for her place at the candy counter bere Lou got enough courage to remark / ,1at it was a nice day out. He sighec regretfully as he strolled back to the mess hall. Things were, as was usual when Lou was gone, going pretty slow when he got back to No. 6, but Finkle quickly fixed that. He turned purple as he roared at the gangling KP who was supposed to be wiping the tables but who had stopped fo1 a smoke, and hischoice flow of lang uage stirred up action in a hurry. He got his full crew working at top speed and and then he retired to the storeroom, where he climbed up on a stack of flour sacks Rncl 1csted while he thought of the unattainable vision that was Della. ... OU GOT OFF THE BUS that night when it stopped in Millville. He had a fresh cigar, and his khakis were crisp and clean. He swaggered a little as he strolled down the road, andhe startled a private, who on KP the day before had trembled at his by waving a cheery greeting. Finkle had crossed the Bay Line spur track and was puffing so mightily at his cigar that he didn't notice the sulphur odor from the pape1 mill when he spied the delectable Della coming toward him prim in blue and white polka dots. Her eyes crinkled up as they approach ed other, and she murmured "Hello, Lou." .and stopped to talk. Lou was, embarrassed and eager. But he '; r ied to be nonchalant. He w avec his cigar expansively. 110h, I was just wanderin' aroun', 11 he said. "Kin 1 want me to kin I walk wit' ya?" "Why of courl)e!" she exclaimed. "I'm Just wandering around, too. It' s my night off, you know. 11 d be awfully gl ad to walk with you. And she 'Put her arm in his. Lou walked on the clouds. He tossec away his cigai", and he breathed the fresh flowery air that always surrounderl Miss Dell a Martin. He took her into a drug store, Rnd her smile was warm and tender as Lou sta;.ec enraptured and nearly speechless into her eyes. She had, it seemed, noticed Lou many times before in the PX, anq she had thought he was "sweet." As for Lou, the best he could do was to tell ner he thought she w 'as "wonderful. They sat over ice cream sodas for an hour, and then it was time for Della to go home. On the way, Lou told of his troubles. "Yeah," he said, "dem guys a.t da mess hall don't give me no 1preciation for all I do. Why da place goes all ta pieces if I step out for jus' a minute. Da lieutenant he was sayin' da udd a cay oat he uidn' t know what he'd do widout me. I got it pretty straight cat he's sent in a recolnmendation to make me corporal, but da way da ratings is froze it don't look like I'm ever goin' to get anyt' ing." She clucked sympathetically, and she said she was su1e that Lou would get his promotion before long. And he imagined that she squeezed his arm. They walked up the steps to the house. where she liveu, and she said, "Well, I guess we'll have to say good night now." She looked at him and smiled, and Miss Della Martin put her hands to his face and kissed him full on the lips. N EXCITED ba1k awakened Lou Finkle from his rever! e. It was Ma.cTavish, the Colonel's dog. MacTavish had climbed up on the flour sacks, too, and he was looking down into Lou's eyes expectantly. He 11 eked Lou's face again. Lou always had a bone for MacTavish at this time of day.

Page 8 THE TYNDALL TARGET Strictly from the Sidelines Perhaps Tyndall Fielas baseball record over the past weekend doesn't you sit up and take notice if you consider each game separately, but totalling the scores on the two Tornado games and the box on the Colored Post team's contest against Eglin Field will give you an eye-opening idea or the power Tyndall bats packed in the three games. Thetwo T/F squads in their three games pushed FIFTY runs across the plate on FIFTY-TWO hits! And while the of fensive attack was pulverizing, the defensive play was equallY sparkling as the three losing nines each consoled themselves with one run In winning their last two games the Tornadoes looked as t h o ugh they were rounding into rorm and are ready ror the tougher opposition to come--or which they will find plenty against the Ellyson Field nine this afternoon and tomorrow. Tyndall hurlers gave mid-season performances in the trio of con tests as Lefty Southard struck out 15 batters in Saturday's game; Joe Flanagan blanked the Gordon johnson men in his six-!nning.stint on Sunday, and Streeter and Jenkins shared a three-h1tter 1n the Colored team's win over Eglin. several incidents occuring during last w eekend's hostilities merit repeating. In the closing innings or saturday's game against the Naval amphibious trainmg nine, Major, the king-size canine who had been an interested spectator ror a full five innings decided could no longer stand the slaughter by Tyndall batsmen or their mates in blue, With the score 10-1 in favor or the Tornadoes, Major walked out on the diamond between the pitchers box and home plate and re rused to let tue game proceed. Finally two equally arden t T/F baseball fans, Trapper and "Chipper Freeman, youthful sons or the Special Service Officer, hastilY formed a plan of action to get Major back to the dugout, Trapper, the younger or the pair, was dispatched to lead the Great Dane orr the playing field while Chipper was assigne. d the task or verbally coaxing him from the sidelines. Trapper approached Major with the reckless abandon of a commando, deterred not one bit by the fact that he held but a slight advantage in height over the dog and was at a distinct disadvantage in. the matter of weight. The youogster first tried the tail-pulling method, but Chipper and other spectators immediately corrected him and Trapper grabbed for the collar. Tugging mightily, Trapper found that Major was determined to stand his grou.nd when the collar slipped off the canine's neck and the dog and Trapper xchanged stubborn.glance$, Never one to give up easily, Trapper promptly restored the collar to its proper place and in one last all-out effort triumphantly marched off the field with a somewhat reluctant Major, The Camp Gordon Johnson squad arrived here ror their game iast Sunday looking like anything but a baseball team. Their supply tent burned down Saturday evening and most or their diamond equipment went up in smoke. Ever hospitable, however, the Tornadoes the visitors in last year's uniforms and the game got under way 15 minutes late. performer ror the men from Carrabelle was their hurler, a southpaw named Clare. Despite poor support rrom his mates, the lefthander captured the ravor or the large crowd and drew repeated applause Jor his valiant errorts. Tvndall's Tuesdav night boxing shows are still packing 'em in. Last Tuesday'. s eight-bout card gave the crowd plenty to chew on and the show was topped off with an exhibition wrestling bout between Lt. Walter ''elson and Pvt.

Persons, post commander, about to start out for.her We've said before that Tyler is new to the boxing game, but __ tackled the sport with an eagerness and interest that compels atten tion. Ever since his arrival on the field he has worked out daily in the gym, receiving instruction from boxing coach Mel Altis and going through a strenuous physical routine on his own. He was out to build himself up and to learn the game. Those who watched hla on his first ring appearance four weeks ago and saw him again laat Tuesday nillht will admit that the improvement is obvious. Gettinghis know-how in such a short time it is more than possible that Tyler has concentrated on boxing fundamentals rather than on ring etiquette, but in view of his eagerness and enthusiasm we feel that a slight breach of ring etiquette should not condemn him in the eyes of the spectators. In our numerous conversatiCils he has imparted an earnestness and sincerity which belie the stillma cast upon him. In the dressing room after the bout, Ensminger had nothing but praise for the youthful red-head and in his own defense cited the fact that despite his previous rinll experience (1940 Golden Gloves finalist) his two year layoff from boxinll while in the Army was too long. On the other hand, Tyler was moodily circling the dressing room, shakinl hia head sdly inquiring of those present, 'How could they ever declare me the winner of that fight?'
