TED WILLIAMS TO APPEAR IN T/F WAC SUCCESSFULLY I CHAHPAGNE BATH FOR A LIBERTY SHIP LAUNCHES SHIP AT WAINWRIGHT YARD A beautifully-smelling bottle or champagne, neatly wrapped in red, white and blue ribbons, was smashed to bits Wednesday by Cpl. Alice Howard o! the Tyndall WAC Detachment. She did it on pur-: !io se. It seems that every time a ship is launched a bottle or champagne must be broken on its bow, and the wac corporal had been selected to christen the SS H.H. Ray mond, the !l4 _th Liberty ship to be constructed at the Wain wright shipyard in Panama City. The entire detachment or. smartly uniformed Wacs marched past rows or ships and parts or s-hips to the scene or the launching, led by the TfF' band. Weldera, male and fe male, stopped their work to watch, and even giant gantry cranes, which look like some domesticated pre-historic monster, ceased their restless pacing up and down between the rows or ships. The Wacs and the band stood at the head or the launching way !or tne ceremony. Colonel John w. Persons, commanding or'!!cer, Colonel William H. Hanson, deputy of training and operations, and Private Helen Albright, who acted as matron of honor, stoOd with various shipyard officials on the launching platform during the christening. In a short speech before tne ship broke free, Cpl. Howar d said, Being sponsor of such a grand ship is che greatest thrill or my 11!e. I like to imagine that this launching is part or the celebration of our second birthday party, and on behal! or all the Wacs 'in the world, I thank you for paying us this high honor. At precisely 5: 15, the scheduled time, the 50 men who were needed to cut the ship loose !rom its cradle had burned through the last steel bands which held the vessel, and 1t began to slide toward the TOP: Corporal Alice Howard of the Tyndall Field WAC Detach ent is shown smashing the traditional bottle of chanpagne o he bow of the SS H.

Victims of an unrelenting caste o stracism, their hatred for the who disclaim relationship with them is terrible and active. These three million untouchables 1ive completely segregated from the so called Jape,nese and are permitted to do op.ly the lowest type of work. Perhaps, because of their low station in t .he social structure, but somehow shunned Eta have escaped the fate.li!Jm of Japan's privileged classes and ardent revolutionists. The Eta have suffered greatly for the accident of their ancestry. T4eir antipathy, slowly accumulated t)J.rough the years, is understandable waits like the knife of Brutus to plunge itself into the ambitious Japan.e.se breast. Whether o r not the Japanese are aware of this threat within, the .Eta are denied even the right to bear ar:ons for the Emperor and mey serve only in weaponless labor battalions. Even their presence is as "defiling" by the Japanese soldiers with whom they cannot miL Eagerly then, with the oppressed Koreans and Formosans, the Eta are im patient !or the hour of their liberation. While their activities are under constant surveillance by the Japanese government, the milit ant Eta continue to work and be active in their under ground. The unhappy Eta, in their present irreducible state, have nothing further to lose than their lives, but have everything to gain by risking them.

On Monday the Germans threw their Sunday punch. It was a pretty good punch. It forced the Americans to withdraw from the Italian coastal town of Terracina, at the Tyrrhenian Sea extremity of the Adolf Hitler Line, which they had occupied earlier in the day. But it was the last desper ate punch of 170,000 faltering Nazi troops. On Tuesday, the Allies resumed their northward drive and recaptured the town. The Americans and.British at Anzio began hammering at the confines of their beachhead, and by had effected a junction with the fighting men and machines who had driven northward the coast from Terracina. The Anzio beachhead was no longer a beachhead. It had become the western anchor of the ma in f r on t s t r e t chin g across Italy's waist. But the Allies at the wound in Italy's shin which was Anzio, who for long months fought a grim holding battle, had done more than join hands with their comrades who pushed up from the south. They burst the eastern confines of their beachhead, .and had cut the Appian Way southeast of Cisterna, blocking the main escape route for the Germans in the Terra cina area. The Italian battle raged toward a crisis. Adolf Hitler's defense line was being to shreds by the com bined slashes of Americans, Britons, Canadians, Frenchmen and Poles. A 4ispatch from the front said, "The final battle for Rome (20 miles away) might not be long de'.ayed." Germany's propagandists be gan preparing their public for bitter taste of further withdrawals. In broadcasts and in newspaper articles they told the people of Germany that retreats were being made only to avoid wasting strength and to preserve it for the main events in eastern and western Europe. Even while the German ArmY was preparing the 50-mile Rome defense line astride two main roads leading to' the capital from the south, Adolf Hitlers own newspaper acknowledged that the city eventually will be lost. Hitler's Voelkischer Beo bachter said, "The German retreat, as far as can be judged, will continue to north Italy." Capt. Ludwig Sertorius, Germ& ny 1 s ve r s ion o f Gab r i e 1 Week fnd i ng May 26 Heatter, said "the Germans are pursuing tactics of mobile de fense without resorting to their reserves." The propagandists asserted that the Allies were using "unheard-of amounts" of power. The Germans, in opposition, were supposed to have some 17 divisions on the battleline, and 8 divisions somewhere in the rear. Despite their setbacks, ever, the Germans still had the strength to reinforce their troops who were fighting Tito's partisans in Yugoslavia. Heavy fighting was reported way throughout western Yugoslavia, with the Germans supporting their offensives with continuous air attacks. -. Germany and France continued. New highs in aerial attack records were set Wednesday when more than Allied planes struck against Hitler from Britain and Italy. Ber lin and Vienna, Kiel and Duis berg, and many another f avoxite target felt the sickening concussion of bombs "Made in America." The aerial pounding, General Hap Arnold, chief of the Army Air Forces, constiutes an invasion "in the dead liest sense of the word. "It is not .. a prelude to invasion. It is invasion Numerically we send over the equivalent of an infantry di vision on our.daily, routine missions now." The Germans. still North Africa, where Yanks landed Nov. 8, 1942, to change the com plexion of the war, has been the scene of conflict since men first learned how to fight. There the Moors first rose to greatness, conquered Spain and developed a strong and ruthless civilization in a weak and weary world. There the Barbary pirates ruled until Decatur broke their grip on trade routes and pavecl the way for France's annexation of most of Barbary. There, too, were the scenes of early triumphs, the British break-through at El Alemein and the final rout of the Desert Fox from Africa. Today North Africa plays a vital part in an even .bigger battle-the fight for Europe. As fueling station for Allied armies across the Mediterranean, the "Dark Continent's" sunlit upper fringe now is the scene of the greatest activity in its history.

May 'lJ, 194-4THE TYNDALL TARGET Paae 7 YE OLDE HISTORIE LESSON ORIENTATION BEING at the moment o ne of the Army's most consuming passions, we shall in this piece at t empt t o give an orientation lesson c on .erning Panama City and vicinity. We will not say anything about the troubles of present-day Panama City with its swollen city limits with GI's from Tyndall Field and welders from the shipyard. we have been digging into a Post Library book on Florida, prepared by the WPA--remember?--which discloses some interesting facts of history anq nature. A S AN EXAMPLE, the story of Port St. Joe and its immediate predecessor, the ghost town of St. Joseph, really an intriguing tale. Back in 1838, St. Joseph, the site of which lies some five miles south of present St. Joe, he.d a population. of 6,000, and was the largest city in Florida. St. Joseph was developed as a port from which to ship the cotton and other products which came from this section in those days. "The harbor became a f orest of spars and masts as vessels crowded the port to take on cargoes of cotton," the WPA book says, "carrying away from 100,000 to 150,0 0 0 bales annually." Rich and Wicked St. Joseph definitely was an up and coming town. Building lots sold at fabulous prices, and two railroads were constructed to bring products to the p .ort. Houses were constructed which, for that time, were palatial mansions, there were brick office buildings and warehouses, long wharves and piers. St. Joseph, says the book, became known as "the richest and wickedest city )in the southeast." In 1841, a ship from South America brought the dreaded yellow fever to St. Joseph. Within a few weeks, threefourths of the population had died. "Panic-stricken survivors abandoneli their homes and fled, ships avoided the Eort, hotels and business houses closed. For three years the town remained demight be buried here. Beino a Tale of Pi rates, of Ghos Towns and Hurricanes and Tidal Waves, of the Invention of Ice, Ana of Other Facts, Historical And Otherwise, About This Area Where We Are Stationed It kept you out of the army. s erted. Fear of the plagu e was so that only a few venturesome fishermen dared to approach the spot. "Ih 1844, a h urricane and tidal wave in from the Gulf. Empty buildings wete leveled. The o f many floated out to sea. Devastatin g storms followed at intervals, and bit b y bit all remains o f the t own were effaced." Today the site of St. Joseph is n oth but a jungle of pines, palmettoes underbrush. When the yellow fever epidemic swept the town, many r _esidents moved their houses t o Apalachicola, which had been established some time before St. Joseph and which, also, was a booming city at the time. Several of these h ouses are still standing. Headstones Stolen Just south of Port St. Joe is what is left of the old St. cemetery. They tell a story that many of the headstones shortly after St. Joseph was abandoned, and were found later in shops of neighboring communities serving as counter-tops. J UMPING UP CLOSER to Panama City, the book info r m s us that St. Andrews Bay is the site of an unusual nat-ural phenomenon: the tide, instead of rising and falling four times a day as do normal ocean tides, r ises but once each 24 hours, and even then the rise is hardly noticeable. We'll bet that e ven most of the residents o f this sectio n don't kno w that, to quote the b ook, "Years ago the fine sand along this coast was shipped north in quantities t o be sprinkled on b arroom floors." PANAMA CITY'S principal contributio n to the present war is, aside from aerial gunners, Liberty ships, but in the Civil War the main industry was a salt works l ocated out t oward Panama C ity Beach. Salt duri ng that war so i mportant t o the C onfederacy that it sold for a dollar a p o und. Florida lawe granted "exem ptio n from c onscription and m ilitary service" to those engaged in productio n of the material, and as you might guess, great numbers of sturdy patriots flocked to this area and began makin g salt just as fast as they could. H owever, the damnyankees sailed into St. Andrews Bay in 1862 and destroyed salt works. Presumably the erstwhile salt-makers thereupon found theffi selves in 1-A, or whatever they, called that unfortunate state of affairs in those days. Where Pirates Roame d B ACK IN THE 1780s, this part of the Gulf c oast took quite a beating from the depredations of an English pi-rate named William Augustus Bowles, who had been dismissed from the British Leading the Creek Indians who at the time lived i n this neighborhood, he l ooted the Spanish towns which existed here then until the S paniards captured him and packed him off to Morro Castle in Havana where he d ied. The WPA's book d oesn't say whether h e left any buried treasure around here, but if you're am bitious it probably wouldn't do any harm t o dig in likely looking spots. A PALACHICOLA WAS founded by English men about 1821 and was known then as West Point. Prio r t o that time' there had been Spanish settlements in the neighbo r hood. Apalach g o t its present name fro m the Apalachee Indians, who were the predominant tribe in northwest Florida when the white men first arrived, Apalachicola had a boom which pre!ll\l d.ed that at St. Joseph. Building lote wert) s 6ld for as high as $3,000, which a helluva lot of money in those days, Come to think of it, it's a lot o f money right now. Dr. John Gerri e of in vented the process of making ice arti ficially. Perhaps it was in defense against t h e hot weather. He used his machine primarily to cdol the r o oms of patients stricken with fever. Mint juleps, planters' punches and Scotch and sodas owe a great deal to Ap ala chi col a. Thus endeth t h e history lesson for this week. : o._.J,J They
