P a e 2 WHEREIN A BEEFER WITH BONE TO PICK, LEARNS ABOUT BONELESS BEEF By Tom Qf Tyndall Some men are born to stew, others achieve a stew, and still others have stew thrust upon them. And that oart about having ste w thrust upon them must have been taken !rom the mes s menus these past three weeks. Well, all stew and no beer G i Joe a dull boy, so in order to re taln the MOS advan tages or our unfortunate G;C.T. we d ecided to furnish the beer. The day was hot and lugging that bee r over to the Post Mess Of fice wasn't easy. But we did it and here's the trimm!ng that it got. Remember carcass beef? Well, that i sn't around much any more. These days the trend is toward boneless beer. sounds innocent, d oe sn t lt? No rat, no suet, jus t beef--boneless beer. But it's the boneless beef that is solely responsible for the many return engagements that stew plays on our menus, and for the dry steaks and roasts. And here's why: QM has a surplus or rrozen bon e less beer which originally wa s intended ror overseas consumpt i o n. These stores must b e e xp ended and every Army camp in t h e country is helping. '!be emphasi s then is on boneless beef a n d t may require several weeks b efore things return to normal. fi'ac tually speaking, .35 p ercent o r bon e l ess beer will pass through a m e a t grinder to emerge as e i ther meat balls, m eat loaf or burg: r s Another 35 percent will g o into the stews that make us so mad and the balance will appear on the menus as steaks and roasts. And since the poundage ror steaks and roasts per meal is higher than that r o r stew and chopped meat item s t h e ratio or stew and burge r s as opposed that or stea ks and burgers will be about 3 to 1. That's the way we get our s tew The !1rs t process in freezing meat s to remov e all bones and fat to assure that the meat will n o t s p oll whs n properly refrig erated. One result of this is detenderlze d beer. Others w e shall presen tly see. No bones means no stocks r o r s o up s an d gravies wi t h which to n avo r ve getables.

The writer the P reverbs t"ells about it in the 12ih verse of his 14th chapter: "There is a them--these young gunners--the warm and ------------------------------------------way which seemeth unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." rou say, "I have sufficient judgment and ability to plot my own course in life and to determine the way shall take. I know how to playsafe, I alone should be judge of what is and what is wrong for me." The sacred writer tells us that the way into this destructive booby trap seems right man. wonderful dreams ofyouth; they. know completely the measure of what there is for them to do. That some tomorrow will find them o ircling in a little patch of sky, scanning the near and distant heavens for the enemy. In the Army's technical schools have been trained to know their weapons, to take them apart and to put them together again. Now it becomes necessary to be adept in their use. But fir.ing is mbre than the mere pressure of a thumb on a centered trigger. It is the long hours spent in classrooms over the flight and trajectory of bullets, over the allowances for windage and the estimated speed of an enemy ship. It is the hard work on the ranges, of working ma chine guns in the great heat of the day, keeping the target always within the planned sight of the gunner and knowing the quick lift that follows a round of g cod shooting. This is no sinecure, this flexible gunnery course that trains our gunners. The gunner's day starts at sun-up and ends only after night has fallen. Be e ause of the intensive nature of the course, every phase of instruction has its own time allocation. Nothing is left undone in the matter ofkeeping the student gunner in close alignment with his assignments. The objectives never change: to impart to the students all that has been gleaned from the plethora of combat experience and to turn them out qualified gunners for their own pro tection and the greater glory of their country. HotB 1 service at a flexible gunnery school consists largely of having to do things for yourself. Your student gun ner cannot summon a "j eeves" to do his bidding. The business of pushing him self through another day rests solely with him. Too often the barracks overcrowded and the distance that separates two beds would undoubtedly impede the measured stride of a Singer midget. But these are regular fellows, to whom close quarters, sweating out chow lines, long hours of instruction and curtailment of past privileges are the accepted factors inherent in the course. They know the results that obtain from instruction intelligently projected and absorbed, for along with their eyes and they bring to the classroom their very lives, to keep or lose orr some fu-\ KNow YouR PLANE DAUNTLESS DESCRIPTION: Single-engine light bomber constructed as an all-metal l Wing and monoplane with single tail and dive brakes.

The "over and over again" routine of the course may gripe their gunners' souls, but to a man they will stay with it to the end. For these are the valiants who hold nothing to be higher than the simple pledge a soldier makes to his country ... "I pledge alleg iance to the flag of the States of America, and to the for which i. t stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. In .the field of combat th. e preservation of your life will .depend. upon your to heed the instructions of your leaders regarding specific. or possible dangers. Likewise your safety temporally and eternally depends upon your willingness to heed God's instruction. He says, "This is the way, walk ye in it." He alone can lead you by the dangers if you follow him in the safe paths of righteousness. Again he says, "I am the way the truth and.the life." Let him be your leader these days of confusion and darkness for he not only knows the way, He IS the the wb.y. If you know and observe the truth, "the truth will make you free." -' Let him teach you the truth about life for He IS the truth. You love life, above all else you desire life.

June 3, 19llll THE WAR IN ITALY Trains Were Late Elderly maiden ladies who used.to visit sunny Italy for a season of swoon ing over such works of art as Michel angelo's "Adam" were heard frequently before the war began to excuse :Il Duce's system of government by saying that at least "he made the trains run on t.ime," which was a decided innovation for that country. The green-clad German itourists" who have been occupying the Liri Valley in recent montb s thi-nk differently. A good many of those Nazis stood around Italian r .ailroad stations this week waiting on first one foot and then another for the train to come in. And tl;te -train. didn 1 t up. ) The main reason was that the great Appian Way over which the Naples-Rome Express used to run had been put out of commission, as far as the Germans pocketed in the Liri Valley were concerned, when the men of the late Anzio beachhead burst out and cut across the railroad. Secondly, the Nazis' alternative rail route for getting back the Fatherland--the Via come within shoqting distance of Allied artillery in the neighborhood of Valmontone, a rail-highway junction some 20 miles to the southeast of Rome. There still are numerous highways over which a portion of the defending German troops can escape, but a good many of them are going to be looking out from Allied prisoner of war camps before rery lonj;f. A Noose Is Formed As the week ended, American infantrymen from their bitterly-won positions in the lofty Alban hills.could see the skyline of Rome 15 miles away. On the Yanks' left, British troops were pressing forward across the coastal plain that lies directly south of the Eternal City, and to the mountainous -last the New Zealanders, the Poles, the French and other United Nations troops were pushing forward to close the door on the Liri Valley trap. The Germans there find themselves in 5. what threatens to develop into a noose very similar to those which the Russians so effectively in roping off whole German Armies in the Ukraine. North of the pocket, a defense line which other German troops had set up running approximately from southwest to northeast, from the Tyrrhenian Sea through Valmontone to Avezzano, was crumbling in many spots. Fascism's Fir-st Capital From the reports of the situation which have been made public, there seems to be quite a bit of question as to whether the Germans will .attempt to hold Rome. or will withdraw before any par ticularly violent fighting breaks out WEEK EHDIHG JUNE 2 there. General Mark Clark says we will have Rome very shortly. If this prediction comes true, the psychological effect upon our enemies be great, because it will mean that Fascism's first capital city will have fallen into the gentler hands of Democracy. The big-chinned, paranoiac Mussolini, who set out to revive the grandeur that was Rome and ended his career as a dazed stooge making ineffective radio speeches for Adolf HitLer, must be having strange thoughts these days. American and British and French flags will fly from the balcony where once he saluted mobs of Italians who shouted "Duce ... Duce ... Duce ... again and again in trained monotony. And some GI Joe from Kansas or Texas or Brooklyn is going to tramp through stately rooms where Benito once made the decisions which his political foes to die from overdoses of castor oil. THE GROUND WAR AGAINST JAPAN A New Menace Develops A new menace has arisen in the war against Japan. The J aps apparently are launching a great new drive aimed at wiping out the new Allied air bases which now vir tually dominate enemy shipping along the Chinese coast. There were reports that the Japanese were massing troops in Indo--:-_ Ci.iina for a possible drive 0n Kunming, U.S. air base on the Burma road. North of Changsha in Honan Province the Americans have fighter and planes which a war correspondent reports have gained complete air superiority between the Yellow and the Yangtze Rivers. From these eastern China bases, U.S. planes have been effectively stif ling much of the enemy's coastwise ship ping. The Nips in Honan Province were reported getting set for an offensive against Chungking, China's capital. Jap invaders pushed fqrward in an attempt to capture the entire CantonHankow,railway, which if successful would be good insurance against the results of possible American landings along the China coast. In that campaign, the Japs are only 35 miles away from Changsha, important railway city and the main objective. First Tank Battle For the first time, American and Japanese armored units have clashed in the Southwest Pacific. :::t happened Monday, on the island of Biak in the Schoutens along the northern coast of New Guinea. The American Army spokesman claimed a victory, declaring eight of the Jap tanks had been defeatedby American tanks, but the Yanks were still unable to 1each their prime objective on the island, the Mokmer airfield. The Biak Island campaign h as brought forth the toughest opposition the Ameri cans have encountered in t h e c urrent fighting in the area. In three days, the kmericans gained only half a mile. By Thursday, the Biak fighting had become quiet, apparently while the U.S. forces gi'rded themselves for a new effort to capture the vi tal airfield, which is only 880 miles from the Philippines. Biak is a small island, but observers believe that what the Japs du there will be highly indicative of the trend the war in the Southwest Pacific will take. If the Japs send in reinforcements, it will mean, so it is believed, that they have. begun their fight for the Philip p _ines there. THE AIR WAR The Weather Was Good "Perfect invasion weather" was what they called it several days in the past week. And perfect invasion weather means perfect flying weather. The air war against Germany went forward re-1 entlessly. The invasion coast, transportation centers, railroads, channel defense distribution points, all were raided d uring the week by great fleets of heavy a n d medium bombers. The Ploesti oil fields were hit again and one big refinery went up in smoke. In Germany, in Yugoslavia, in Austria, France, Romania and the Low Countries, the voice of the bomber was heard in the land. Target: Kuri les The Kuriles extending north from Japan felt the blows, too. Four of the Kurile were bombed Monday. The raids ranged from Shimushiri, 1,000 miles fro m Tokyo, to Shumushu, northernmost of the island chain. The naval base at mushiro and the island of Matsuwa also were hit. Again close to Japan, the Nipponese reported two American fighter planes--P-51s--had attacked Japanese installations northwest of Peiping. This if true would be the longest fighter stab on the continent toward Tokyo. There was a triple blow at the Care lines. Truk, Waleai and Satawan Islands on the road to the Philippines were raided. ------------------------UNLESS you like unexpected \'isitor s or undesired attention fr o m the e nemy neYer ha\'e or a path stop :.It y our place of concealment.

June 3, Record Crowd Sees BOB KENNEDY, former third baseman for the Chicago White Sox, was one of the four major leaguers in the Bronson I ine-up, which included Ted Williams, Nick Tre mark, ex.Dodger, and Ray Stovi ak, former Philly outfielder.

His starry-eyed followers hindered his dressing to the extent that when he finally emerged from the shower room, his mates had devoured all the sandwiches which the Special Service Office had procured for the visiting baseballers.

rlint arrowhead recently dug up by Capt. Charles Brunner, landscaping officer, .in the vi cinity of the hospital grounds, led our imagina tion back along the trails of another day. The first Tyndall gunner, who was he? What was his name where did he come from? That he was an Indian not native to Florida, he himself has told us. For flint is not to be found anywhere in Florida. Was he one of a war party of Creek warriors who had left their tribal villages in what is now known as Alabama to do battle -with the Apal achees? That we shall never know. But his arrowhead, being found here, is certain proof that he was far from home when he expended it on that day so long ago. It is just barely possible that the arrow found its mark. For while the bow could be a deadly weapon _in the hands of a skilled hunter, the range of its effectiveness was limited. Beyond certai n distances accuracy became an indeterminate factor J rather than a calculated result. ; Granting that the first guriner was expert in the f use of his weapons, it would. be interesting to 7J/: :--.. ::-:::. :learn the training methods by he pre" \! pared for combat. Probably was ,: a course in the proper use of the paints with which he daubed his body. One can imagine that he // took a refresher in rep a the tribes broken bows and bow He ( was probably wise enough to devote some of his S i gh tin g time to practical flint chipping and a dry run or two. If this was his school for combat, he had reason to be proud of it. Combat conditions have changed considerably sjnce the first Tyndall gunner went off to war, but the importance of sighting and being able to fix a malfunction has not diminished a bit. Then, a s now, a faulty >Dr broken weapon spelled dis>\ster and he who mastered sighting had come a long way in the art of war. True, our first gunner knew nothing about air craft recognition or ball turrets, but he could recognize any bird on the wing and had g?tten hiE early turret training as a revolving papoose on his mother's back, taking pot-shots at the neighbors'' children with his caliber 3J pea-shooter. Phase Check IRis mother's cumbersome waddling served him also as a moving base for his hand-held gunnery operations and before he was quite ten he _could string a bow blind-folded with the best phase-checkers of he could recognize on the wing the tribe. His life was one continuous bivouac, and he came to his manhood fully able to pitch a tent or adjust a sagging pack. The secret of his died with him, but judginghim by his fine flint arrowhead it seems reasonable to suppose that the first gunner wore the tribal equivalent of a pair of silver wings.
