FORTIFICATION .Every nation today is, desirous of strong fortifications that will protect and fortify it against the enemy. Spe cial devices, such as radar, have been developed to against surprise tack, and obstacles of various kinds a well as are a part of those forti fications. The man or woman to live life at its best is forever faced with an enemy who is ever on the alert for an opportunity to defeat that purpose. That enemy is evil, personified by Satan, who comes when least expected and always tacks at our weakest point. Against this enemy we must have strong" fortifications. We can find them in the com mand given by Jesus to his disciples in Gethsemane prior to his trial and crucifixion: 11Watc h ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. 11 (Mark 14:38, ) "Watch ye," Be ever on guard. The fortifications can be taken unless the men who man them are ever on the alert. So in life the one wh watches will choose his companions car fully, control his thoughts diligently, and guide his actions wisely to prevent surprise attacks by the adversary He will never deliberately let down his to invite attack. In the stage coach days three men applied for_the job of driving a coach. One said, "I can drive within a foot of the precipice. 11 The second one boasted, 11 I can drive within six inches of the precipice. 11 But the third one, who said, "I will drive as far as possible from the precipice," received the position. Keep away from the precipice of temptation. "Watch ye. 11 "And pray," Prayer us closer to God, helps to know His mind and His purpose for us. This knowledge gives us strength of spirit, the main part of our fortification against the attacks of evil. The strong man, though taken by surprise, has a resource tha' en&bles him to overcome the enemy. Th man or woman who lives a life of prayer has that strength which God alone can give. "Watch ye and pray. --CHAPLAIN 1/.P. !ULMER CHAPEL SERVICES PROTESTANT Sunday Sunday School, Post Chapel ,.,,,,,, 9 A.M. \tlorsnip, Colored Rec Hall ............ 9 A.M.

May 20, 1944 THUMBNAIL SKETCHES OF 1 PORTS OF ENTRY' OM } INVASION FRONT Although the "experts".of the radio and press have just about picked every possible "p o r t o f en t r y f o r t h e b i g invasion, the correct answer wi 11 not be known unti I which may have already happened as this article goes to press. However, to he! p ori entate every soldier with the p rob! ems facing the All I es on the eve of invasion, here are a few thumbna i 1 sketches describing the potential "ports of entry" on the western front of "Hitler's Headache" or "Oc-cupIed Europe. at the mouth of .the Loire River on the undersideofthe Brittany peninsula, with the best of attack to 1 and to the west and then take the city from the rear. LORIEHT a German submarine base some 60 miles west of St. Nazai re, with landings possible on both sides, although the opposition may be heavy. BREST a major port -pro tected by permanent and an. rocky coastline. Possible landing beaches are southward across the bay, and according to the war correspondents of Time, the most obvious attack would be from the Lorient area. CHERBOURG. another 1 arge port which is the favorite "guess" of several "experts," because )it sticks out in the channel 1 ike a made-to-order beachhead, and if It could be taken, i t wo u 1 d s e rv e as an I de a 1 base for further operations. However, beaches on both sides of this peninsula are I imited by high c 1 i ffs. LE HAVRE one of the largest ports of France, at the mouth of the famous Seine. The excellent beaches here would pro vide good landing conditions, although it is a foregone cone! us ion that the Germans realize this too. DIEPPE the Allies tried a Commando attack here in 1942, and met with terrific }tion. The invaders I anded on good beaches, but could not get their men and tanks past overpowering German defense. It has a 1, 700 yard beach, blocked by a high barrier of c 1 iff. BOULOGNE this is a smaller port with many beaches, but they are marked by a prominence of sand dunes which would hinder landing operations. CALAIS this is a port "right next door" to England, being only 21 miles across the channel. Cliffs touch the shore, THE TYNDALL TARGET MAY to May 20 but there are suitable beaches to the north and south. It Is probably heavily defended, but cannot be disregarded as a possible port of entry. DUHKIRK this first class port needs no introduction, being the famous point of escape for the British retreat in June, 191j.(). Canals are hazaras because they give the Germans the weapon of defensive flooding. Further north, the ports of years, too, and their p reparations are eauall y as good. They have announced many times that they will not attempt the invasion until they areabso1 utel y ready, because they want to accomplish this greatest offensive In military history with the least expenditure of human lives. The scene has been set, and the great drama is only waiting for the fi rsf curtain to go up. Everything Here But a Juke Box Coast Guard Photo "Komplete and Kompact" is the Coast Guard' s description of its new 20-man "life kraft," latest answer to the terrors of torpedoed seamen. This new all-metal raft is a virtual ship in itself with cooking facilities, sails, food supplies and even a "morale kit" which includes a Bible, playing cards, tobacco and chewing gum Be 1 gi um and The N eth erl ands are also good possibilities, but the threat of flood defenses discourage Invasion operations. However, amphibious equipment could be used here to good advantage. In summary, It must be said that the Germans have had four years to get ready for this invasion, and underwater mine fields, underwater obstacles, I and mines, wire enfangl ements, tank obstacles, concrete bunkers, stationary and mobi 1 e weapons with I i nes of fire interlaced and accurately ranged, are to be expected when the Allies make their 1 and i ngs. But the Allies have had four ITALIAN OFFENSIVE MIGHT BE SPARK TO SET OFF INVASION BLAST The head! ines of the past week have been concentrated on the new offensive in Italy, with the American, British and French forces uniting In a supreme attempt to crack the German defenses and move up "the boot." And the results have been very g9od, especially when compared to the progress made by the Allies in past efforts. In the first attack, our forces moved four mi I es into the heavily fortified Gustav Line stretching across Italy, and then followed it up by taking over an area of 60 square miles on the German side of this 1 ine. The next few days brought even better news. The Allies blasted their way through the Gustav 1 ine at many points, and were moving in on the famous Adolf Hitler Line, which is further up "the boot," and the last real barrier before This new attack carried great significance, a defeat on the Hitler line would have a demoralizing effect on Germany's home front, and this is a poor time for Hitler's followers to start feeling discouraged, what with the Invasion about to begin. Adolf is having enough trouble a I ready getting his peop 1 e "fired up" to meet the invaders, and if he suffers defeat on a 1 ine that carries his own name, he's going to have to shout auite a bit louder. RUSSIAN FRONT IS QUIET LIKE 'LULL BEFORE THE STORM' (HUFF SED!) After the Russians recaptured the strategic Black Sea naval base of Sevastopol, they dropped out of the head! ines for a few days, with the exception of news storl es telling about the tremendous losses of the in this defeat, including 20,000 Nazis killed in one batt! e. But they have not been idle by a long shot. They have been getting ready to start a new drive on the E as t e rn f ron t, and where or it will hap .pen, Hitler would give a right arm to know. Apparently it will be timed with the invasion from the west, and it wi 11 tl robabl y end inside the City Limits of Berlin!

May 20, 19 4-4THE TYNDALL TARGET Page 9 TYNDALL FlELD BROWN BOMBERS SINK WAINWRIGHT SHIPBUILDERS, 17-1: SEEK 14TH STRAIGHT AGAINST MARIANNA HERE TOMORROW continuing their heavy hitting, the Past B'rown Bombers swamped the Wainwright Shipbuilde r s by a 17-1 score last sundayarternoon on the local diamond, It was the third straight win ror the Po s t colored team, and tomorrow after noon on the local diamond; Marianna will be out to halt the winning streak or the Bombe r s The game is scheduled to start at 2:30. Last w eek's game followed the usual pattern outlined by the Bombers. They hopped on the Wainwright hurle r ror five hits and rour runs in the first inning, then proc e e ded to tally rour more times in the second rrame, Afte r that there n ever was any doubt as to the eve n tual outcome or the gam e Jenkins a gain turne d in a glittering mound p erformance ror the Ninners He allowe d eight hits, but sent the same number or men ba c k to the bench via the strikeout route, He w ould hav e had a 3hutout to his credit but ror a wild throw by his battery mat e Dawkins, in the second inning, He was n ever in serious trouble, and mer ely coaste d along after the second frame when his t e am mates gave him a long lead to work on. In the first inning, Harrison, leadorr man, popped out, but Cente r Fielder Brown doubled, Phillips, Dawkins, Randall and Irons all singled to send rour runs streaking across the plate. The barrage continued in the ne x t stanza, as Harrison was hit by a pitched ball and Brown, Phillips and Dawkins all conn ected safely. The big blow or the stanza was a ringing triple b y Dawkins, who has belted at leas t one base hit in every game thus rar this seaso n. Cente r Fielde r Brown and Short stop Phillips c ontinue d their slugging tactics, w ith r our sare blows apiece. B rown reported to the team as a pitching candidate, but during practice s e ssions demonstrated his batting skill with such emphasis tha t he was shifte d to an outfield p ost. Harrison, Dawkin s Randall and Irons made two sare bingles apie c e Starting Wainwright Pitcher MC Coy didn't have muc h in his bag or tricks to sto p the slugging Bombers, but he led his team's attack with two sare blows. He was round ror eight hits in two innings, His successor o n the mound, Long, was treated just as rudely by the winners.

P ost Colored Diamond TRE BEICII A Man Whu Believed in Attack The death of Lt. Col. Thomas Hitchcock Jr. in a plane crash in England robbed the United Nations bf a tough, time-tested fighting man and American sports of a colorful immortal whose name will be remembered as long as those of Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Jack Dempsey and Red Grange. Tommy Hitchcock flew planes and played polo. He flew and fought with the Lafayette Escadrille in the last war and-at 44-with the AAF in this one. In between, he played polo. To say that he played polo is putting it mildly. For 2{) years he was polo. Hitchcock was the man who brought the game out of the croquet field, so to speak, and into the back yard for all to see and enjoy. He revolutionized the game with one tactic-attack. Hitchcock, like Ruth a .nd Dempsey, was a slugger. His idea of a sharp defense was to knock the other fellow bowlegged. He could drive the ball 100 yards down the field with one swat and score a goal from 60 yards with the deadly accuracy of a pool shark. "Always attack!" was his motto. For one international match he sidelined some light hitters on his team and replaced them with a couple of Texas cowpunchers, Cecil Smith and Elmer Boeseke, who, like Hitchcock, could clout the ball a mile. "Forget defense," he ordered. "Go out_-d.nd :slug that apple." He rode a horse like a centaur and flew a::'plane like an ace. In the first war they told him he was too young to fly. In this war they said he was too old. But he flew both times anyway, in the air as on .the ground, a believer in attack. Too ba
