DWIGHT :OOILEAU, THE MIGIITY MI'IE Several months ago there appeared in The Target an editorial entitled In it reference was made to the "indi v.iduals who, despite the lack of cooperation and appreciation by the men on the field, consistently volunteered their for the field's entertainment activities." One of the men we had in mind when we wrote those linea was S/Sgt. Dwight Boileau. Boileau left us on the recent shipment of men to Maine. For two and a half years his fine tenor voice was the highlight of the leading field social functions, including many wedding ceremonies. He could always be depended upon to lend his cooperation to any project where it was felt his talents were needed. He was one of the leaders of the group which put on the first T/F radio show over WDLP back in February of 1942. He shied away from publicity, whether it was praise for a performance on the stage or a boost to his reputa tion as one of the field's top-notch clerks. He arrived on the field a buck sergeant, and left here one grade higher. We never once heard him gripe about it.' That's the Tyndall on Dwight Boileau. In last Sunday's Dothan, Ala., "Eagle" there was a full column devoted to the most recent deed of the former Tyndall soldier. Dwight's home is in California, but he decided that instead of spending his delay enroute on a train between Maine a nd California, he would spend his free time near Dothan. His first stop upon arriving there was to seek out the c ounty employment agent. The agent referred him t o a farmer in the vicinity who was desperately in need of help. Dwight went out to see the farmer and immediately went to work. His first two days were s pent guiding an unruly tract o r thro ugh the rich Alabama soil. The farmer and his wife practically adopted him. I t astounded the farmer's neigh b ors that a soldier would voluntarily seek such labor, particularly while on a furlough.The feature writer of the Dothan Eagle omitted few adjectives in extoll ing Boileau's act of doing his part to overcome the manpo wer shortage on the farm. ?.ut we weren't surprised when we read abou't it. F o r those of us who know Dvight, know that he will discount h i s c ures on the farm with a shrug of the shoulders and laugh it off as a lark. Helping people out was an everyday affair for him. Boileau often was called "the mighty mite," because he could do so much in spite o f his lack of height. It seems as though he d."esn't intend to slacken his But then, no real soldier ever d oes--and Dwight is one of the beat.

General Information: Soldiers should be easy meat for temptation at this time They are somewhat lonesome for hom They are living on their own for the first time. They like to have their com panions think cif them as bad apples. Their work is h .ard-and when they get tired, they are easy prey for us. They have no women in their life, and are suckers for dirty stories. All the restraints are off, which is_just perfect for our business. 2. Arms and Equipment: (a) SEX. The two great helps to our business .ln this matter are dirty language and filthy pictures. Let all the allies keep suggesting dirty stories to the servicemen,. and when the GI hears a dirty story keep pushing it home in his mind. Dirty language, swearing, etc., will .also be a big help in winning these men for helL Keep telling them that it doesn't m any difference what they say becaus everyone else is saying the things. They will alao be very lonesome for their wives or sweethearts. ALL ALLIES MUST CAMPAIGN FOR PIN-UPS! They are first rate passports to hell. (b) RELIGIOUS EXERCISES. Keep telling them how tired they are on Sunday morn ing. This should_ be very easy, and a little suggestion will keep them in bed on Sunday.morning. This is important because when they. go to church.they get great strength to resist us. Don't ever, let them go to Holy Communion, for that is pure poison to our best work. Keep telling, them how hard it is to get food after Communion, the other men will think they are panty-waists. (c) CHAPLAINS. Make fun of the Chaplains. Chaplains are very dangerous to our war-effort--and the best way to im mobilize their work is to make fun it. Get your best workers to. ride the GI's who go to see the Chaplain./ And particularly ride the ears-off the few. zealots who help the Chaplain-s sab otage our work. 3. Safety Precautions: Occasionally you will find a GI who says a prayer during the day, that horrible thing that causes us so much trouble and puts out so many fires in hell. Work on him immediately. One man who says prayers can ruin a whole squad-even a division,.-for our work. As soon as you find a praying soldier, get your best workers to boob the life out of him. Nothing is more dangerous to our work than a praying soldier. 4. Security and Protection:. ery.thing else, make fun of the who claim that the Devil has any infl ence on men. This is a well-known fifth column procedure that worked in all/ countries in Europe, and will work with dumb Americans too. 5. Repor_ts: Full and detailed reports should be. turned in each week, and advice sough't from Headquarters for indi. vidual problems. If everyone will give his whole attention to the problems com mitted to his change, we should able to increase the population of Hell con siderably and win many victories against our Great Enemy, God.

Bernard Louis Scalisi, of Abbeville, La. The gunner was shot down over Vlterbo, Italy, and descended by Parachute. He was forced to spend three months In the wilds of Italy," he sald,hldlng from the Germans as he slowly made his way to Rome, where he slipped Into the city and climbed the Vatican walls at night. A knowledge of Italian helped him to obtain aid from the natives In evading capture by the Nazis. His main worry while in the Vatican, he told his parents in a letter, was that a $100 check he had written to meet his expenses would bounce. "Make sure there is over $100 In the bank, as I don't want to be put In jail for wrl ting false checks," he advised his parents. "Be sure the money is in the right bank. While in the Vatican Sgt. Seallsi had tea with the American minister and his familY. "It sure was good to talk nothing but Eni11sh after being in the wilds of Italy for almost three months and speaking nothing but Italian. The sergeant said that 1n the Vatican we lead the lives of kings."

All Gaul has now been divided into parts; One part is tlie Normandy peninsula, in Caesar's Celtica, and it is in the hands of the Allies. The other part, of is the rest of France, and it still is in the somewhat disputed possession of the Germans. As this is written, American infantrymen are smashing into the suburbs of Cherbourg, the great French port at the western tip of the peninsula, while German forces work feverishly to destroy the docks which Allied forces need if the_ men and equipment for the last big push are to reach France. The Germans before have attempted to ruin the harbors from which they have reen evicted, in Italy, in Sicily and North Africa. One of the great accomplishments of the war has been the repair and salvage work done by Allied engineers to put those ports back into condition again. The Normandy peninsula can be presumed to be he1d firmly by the Allies-more specifically by the Americans who had the job of taking over the peninsula. But stiff resistance by Nazi armored forces still being encountered at the base of the triangular-shaped penin sula, where the British troops are en gaged. Through dozens of small French vil lages and medium-sized towns the roar of battle is being heard. Scores of tanks are being destroyed by each of the opposing forces. In the Cherbourg area are an estimated 25,000 to 50,000 Germans, few of whom I w1ll be able to escape death or capture. * The first--and perhaps the last--major naval battle is developing-in the western Pacific. Japan's fleet, long in hiding, at last has emerged to challenge the powerful forward strides which Allied forces are taking in the direction of Tokyo. There have been great air battles United States carrier planes have pounc ed on the Jap ships with bombs and torpedoes in the preliminary phases of the great battle. The American Fifth Fleet has more than a thousand planes to-hurl at the Nippqnese. The Japs, who apparently have more than a handful of planes them selves, lost 300 on Sunday in an attack on the Fifth Fleet. The Japs said that already they "have suffered considerable losses of ships and planes." This, of course, could be a statement designed to make the American commanders think the Japs have been weakened more than they really have. Now, if ever, is the time for the Jap fleet to go into action. For with the landings on Saipan Island in the Mariannas, American forces are in the process of seizing an air base within B-17 range of Japan itself. If the Americans can, from the base on Saipan, spread out to take control of tne rest of the MariWEEK EMDIMG JUNE 23 ann as, then Bonin Island might also f "all before Yank attacks and thus give a base less than a thousand miles from Tokyo. Saipan and Biak Island off the, coast of New .Guinea, where we soon to have other air bases, furnish two points from which bombers could strike easily at the islands off the coast of the Philippines, and at the Philippines themselves . Incidentally, the Japs who now occupy Wake Island must be pretty nervous. On all sides of them are American-occupied islands. They are sitting right in the middle of the American "Sphere of Influence." If Japan can spare the ships, which is doubtful, it wouidn't be surprising to find some morning that the Nip garrison has departed. .. * Elba, where the first Napoleon spent a brief exile between his two attempts to conquer the world, fell this week into the hands of the Allies. The little island off the Italian coast fell to French colonial troops, who in addition to the island took possession. of 1,800 Germans garrisoned there.

Pa e 8 RANIERI, DAVEY BATTLE TO A DRAW IN FEATURE BOUT OF WEEKLY CARD trndall's weekly boxing show 1s st111 drawing the crowds and rans at last TUesday's !isticurrs wit nessed six lively bouts which in cluded one exhibition match, a knockout, a TKO and a draw ln the evening's nnale. Charles Bennett or Boston and Herb Kaurman o r New York, battl ing in the 140 pound class, stepped in to the ring ln the opener and set the pace ror the bouts that !allowed. 'lb.e pair put a rast and scrappy perrormance, with Kaurman gaining the edge by or several hard punches landed in the thir d round. In the second r1 gb t, Herb C rock er or Massachusetts and Joe Bol der or Missouri went through two rounds without much contact and lt wasn't until late in the third canto that Crocker opened up with a rlurry or blow s which drove Borden to the c orner and kept him there as the b ell sounded to end the contest, with Crocker earning the decision. George Carbin or Boston, appearing on the card ror the !1 !th straight time, w as matched with John Anderson Idaho, in the third bout. The men traded punches on even terms in the !irat but Carbin was awarded a TKO as Anderson railed to answer the bell ror the start or the second round. He was stricken with stomach cramps and rorced to leave the ring. A pair or leO-pounders donned the gloves in the evening's rourth go, Dave Benson or Massaqhusetts ann Amando Landlolinda or New Yor k Both boys lert little doubt or their boxing skill rrom the start and in the !1rst round several hard blows were changed, with the huskier and shorter Benson apparently gaining the edge in the initial rrame. However, in the second round, Landiolinda ope n e d up and caught Benson wlth sharp le!ts and rigbts to the race which sent the latter to the canvas ror the count or nine. As soon as Bensen was on his reet, Amanda p ressed his advantage and resumed his merciless attack, again driving Benson to the !loor with savage rights, this time ror the run count. An exhibition mat c h was on the menu in the !l!th spot, with veteran Charles Blankenship and D i ck McDonough as the e:xhi bi tQrs. Blankenship, r1 gb ting one or h ls cleanest !igbts 1n months, traded blo w s on even terms with the wily McDonough and the crowd roared its approval or the well-rought exhibition a t i t s close.

TYNDALL TARGET r BOTH TYNDALL NINES WIN SIXTH STRAIGHT; TORNADOES SINK ELLYSON TWICE, 6-0, 12-3 THREE HOMERS FEATURE TORNADO ATTACK AS AND SOUTHARD EACH HURL 6-HIT BALL; LIVINGSTON'S RELIEF EXCELLENT BRONSON, WITH WILLIAMS, HERE TOMORROw There was enough satisfaction and glory ln the Tornadoes twin victory over Ellyson this past weekend to be passed around in large chunks to each member or the squad. First or all, it was the sixth straight win, and Saturday's 6-0 triumph was the !lrst shutout reg istered by the Tyndall team this year. Joe Dickerman hurled six or the seven innings, giving up a hal! dozen hits. only one Ellyson runner reached third base. Dale Livingston took t he mound in the seventh and last inning andretired the side without a hit. In the !ield, the Tornadoes set some kind or record by executing a double play in each or the !irst three innings. At bat, the boys !rom tyndall swung !or extra bases and connected. Shortstop Billy Hines and Center!ielder Les Tarr blasted out the !1rst pair or T 1 F in many a game, while Second Baseman HUb Freeman continued his distance slugging with two triples in three trips to the plate. Sunday saw the Tornadoes completely avenge their two-game setback by Ellyson in May, as the Tyndall nine collected 15 hits orr two Navy hurlers and won the ballgame 12-3. Letty Southard chalked up his rourth win or the year, striking out 11 and walking none. Dale Livingston rel1.eved Letty in the seventh and continued the remarkable pitching by tanning six or the nine batters who raced. him, giving up no hits and also walking none. Jack Polcynski, Tornado utili cy outfielder, replaced Le!t!ielder orange in the sixth and followed up his single in that inning w1 th a tremendous homer in the eighth. Jack tagged the ball well and many believe his drive eclipsed that or Ted Williams when the former American League batting champ tripled in the Bronson game here several weeks ago. Tyndall scored its first run in Saturday's seven inning contest in the second 1nn1ng on twoh1ts. 'lhey added another ln tbe thlro on the same number or b1ngles and repeated in the rourth by virtue o! Red Tarrs booming !our-bagger into center !1eld. The Tornadoes concluded their scoring in the sixth with threeruns to bring their total to six while the El lyson nine was being blanked by nurlers Dickerman and Livingston. Billy Hines homer was the big blow in that sixth, with two men onbase at the time. rn Sunday's tussle, tyndall got orr to a !lying start by three hits oh top or an Ellyson error to score !our runs. The visitors almost closed the gap in the second on Ramsey's triple which scored Du!!y and a !!eld er's choice which permitted Ramsey to tally and bring the count to 4-2The Tornadoes added one in their hal! or the third and another in .the !1rth ror a 6-2 lead, and then put the game on ice 1n the sixth with another quartet or runs Polcynski' s round-tripper in the eighth with one on scored the !1nal pair or TYndall runs. pushed across its third marker in the sixth on two hits. This afternoon, on home grounds, the Tornadoes will play the FOrt Barrancas r .ine, w1 th Bronson Field as the T/F opposition in tomorrow's contest, also to be played on the post diamond. The T/F squad holds a 2-0 count over the Barrancas players, while the Bronson-TYndall series stands at 1-1. Ted Williams, Bob Kennedy, Ray stov1ak and Nick Tremark, !ormer maJor leaguers, are ex pected to be in the Bronson lineup.

It was the sixth straight win for the Brown Bombers, who will be out to make it seven in a row tomorrow afternoon at the expense or the ball tossers at Marianna Earlier in the season, the Bomb-HIT HOHERS FOR TYNDALL Les Tarr, rlghtflelder, con-nected for his second homer of the season In the fourth inn-ing of Saturday' s contest. Jack.Polcynski, Tornado utility outfielder, whose circuit smash in Sunday's game was one of the longest ever hit here. ers swamped Marianna by a 15-0 score on the local diamond, and expect to duplicate this feat tomorrow. Ernest Streeter probably will hurl for the local team wl th the veteran Bea u Dawkins donning the mask and pads. Last Sunday's game was strictly a cne-man story--Jenkins. The little right-hander who has nqt lost a game this season was in top-notch rorm, and dazzled the Napier batsmen wlth a variety or curves and fast balls He fanned 15 men in seven innings, and t ssued only one free pass. He was given sparkling support by his teammates, especially Willie Randall at third base and Tom Adams in left field. It looked like a no-hit, no-run game for Jenkins, but wl th one out in the last inning, Seco nd Baseman Grimes tripled to left center and Left Fielder Williams singled to score the losers 1 only run. In add! tlon, Jenkins led his teammates at bat, bashing out three solid singles in as many trips to the Plate. Tyndall tallied its first run when Shortstop Harrison, leadoff man, belted the initial pitch far over t h e 1 eft !1elder' s head ror a home run. He circled the bases before the ball could be re trieved and returned to the infield. Singles by Brown, Phillips and Dawkins accounted for another Tyndall tally in the opening frame. The opening blast from TYndall bats blew starting Pitcher Taylor orr the mound and into the showers before the r!rst inning was over. Owens, relief hurler, managed to retire the Bombers without further damag e, but he ran into trouble in the second trame when Jenkins, Harrison and Brown drove out solid smashes ror two more talll'es. The final Tyndall tally came in the third inning on a walk, rlelder s choice and single by Jenkins. The Bombers were held in check ror the rest or the game by Owen, who proceeded to turn in a neat performance. The Bombers collected 11 base hits, Jenkins leading wl th three, Harrison and Brown following with two apiece. Randall looked ceptlonally good at third base, while Adams, playing left field ror t he first time, turned in several fine running catches to keep Jenkins out or trouble. The Bombers will be seen in action on their home diamond on July 11 when Marianna visits here.
