THE B-29 AND A PLAN "The use of the B--29 Super-Fortress in combat brin gs actualj ty to an .Air Forces' plan made years in advance for-truly global aerial warfare. I t proves that our planners a n d coupled with the capacity o f American industry, are an unbeatable c ombination. result is here,a highly complicated and most deadly a irplane, capable of delivering the heaviest blows yet through air power. "I assume the heavy responsibility for: its employment under the Joint Chiefs of Staff with full confidence in .its potential use. "Thi s employment of the B-29 makes possible the softening up attack on Japan very much earlier than would be possible with aircraft hitherto know.n 'to combat. This mighty weapon ad...: vanccs the bomber line a long way. "The Super-Fortress is not going to win the war by itself, 'nor has anyone thought it will do s o It will, how ever, like its predecessors the B-17 and B-24, strike at the sources of strength, and prepare the way fur ulti mate decision by our well-established team of land, sea and air forces. In our new strategic thinking', the B-17 and B-24 will now become medium instead of long-range bombers, and our B-25 and B-26 aircraft will short-range bombers. These smaller planes will travel no less distances than they do now, b u t the B-29 will attack from much greater distance, and with much more power. "The e111ployment of the B-29 is just beginning. It goes directly into battle from the production lines, and we have a lot to learn before its full power may be developed. Consequently, the frequency of its use will be care fully determined for some tima. From this circumstance, let our enemies take what comfort they can while they can. GENERAL H.H. ARNOLD Commanding General, AAF NIGHT SOFTBALL One of. the most recent innovations in the way of recreational facilities at Tyndall Field has been the installation of lights o n the diamond at P.T. Area 2, permitting inter-sectional softball after dark. Until now, the only real obstacle standing in the path of strong league competition by GI teams has been the lack of time ;i.n which to play the games. However, throu gh Special Service funds, this handicap has been overcome.

There js little formality at the coLtests, with m ost of the spectators fatigues and the players attired in their favor i te P.

These s oftball games are de creasing the b u s passeLger loads into t o wn, and one of the best ways to judge the popularity of an on-the-. field a.ct i v i.l'.y. Next week we will observe Independence Day, the birthday of our nation-a na tion "conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Our forefathers recognized that there are inequalities among men, social, intellectual, and physical inequalities, bu. t beneath all these they wisely saw a common bond equality in that we are all ere atures of the same creation and Creator. In that they gave recognition to a.n ideal that is as old as the first human family--the i.dea.l of human brotnerhood. The world since that day has had mapy Cains: men who have a glory for themselves by betraying a sacred trust to keep their brother. This ideal of human brotherhood is not entirely a concept; it reaches way beyond that, but it has received .its strongest impetus through Christianity. Paul in his glorious oration on Mars Hill at Athens said: "God who created the world and all that is in it .. gives" all men life and breath and everything. For from one forefather he has created every nation of mankind so that might search for God .and find him. For it i8 through union with him that we live and move and exist, as some of your poets have said, 'For we are also his offspring. 1 (Acts 17:24-29.} Brothers together of one Father! Jesus reminded us often of this common brotherhood. "When y e pray, say, Our We are at war today because men have reiused to recognize brotherh.ood or conform to its implications. As the men of our armed forces have gone into a..ll parts of the world to fight the battles of the war, they have become affiliated with many people whom we had not hitherto regarded as brothers. And as side by side they have battled a. common .enemy, Chine13e, Russians and seem to them. We who are Christians know that this ideal of human brotherhood is not e thing to be hung on the walls of minds like a pious motto which we can forget at will. We have a duty to God and men to in the light of it, rec ognizing its irr ,perative value for, us at every turn. It would save much o f our tears and sweat and blood. lt would foreer banish war. Indeed the only way we can "insure the blessings of liberty to ourselves &nd our posterity" is by the who1 e-hearted recognition of this ideal and the application of all of its principles to life, inQ.ividual, national and international. And if we are truly Christian that is duty; He who "hath made of one blood all nations of men" must wirice when he sees how slo'' is the of the spirit of divinity he brought. to birth in each us. But we are learners, though 2rogress is slow and Some day we will yet be able to pray, our reverent voices colored with understanding. and our brave spirits shining with the realization of what it means: "Our Father."

July I, RUSSIANS SMASH NAZI DEFENSES the Goal Is Minsk Cherbourg is in our hands, and is be ing put into condition for use by the ships which will carry mountains of equipment and millions of men into F 'rance. The British are pushing forward around slowly encircling that city, France's seventh l&rgest port. It is possible that there will be a comparati ve br.eathing spell in the French fighting around the Normandy peninsula area while the Allies complete the job of moving troops and their arms across the Channel. Now the attention has shifted to another of Germany's fronts--in Russia. Nazi defense lines in the east have smashed by the great offensive hich the Soviet forces began a little nore than a week ago. Vitebsk, vital fortified rail city which long has been the Germans' closest outpo2t to Moscow, has fallen into the hands of the Russians, and the next main goal seems to be the White Russian capital of Minsk. Along a 250-mile zone of fighting, more than a thousand "populated places" have been liberated by the Red Army, as Soviet troops swept through what were reputed to be the Nazis' stron-gest defenses on the Russian front. The fortified cities of Mogilev, Lepel and Osipovichi all were captured in one day, and Brobruisk was completely encircled and then captured by the Red Army. Minsk is less 50 miles away from e Russian forces, and it seemed easil.;v ossible that the city might be reached THE TYNDALL TARGET G JULY in a few days. And Berlin is 580 miles beyond Minsk. The advance of the Red Army was being aided by what obseryers said was the most terrific aerial cover yet seen on the eastern front. In the north, the drive jnto Finland went forward With little interruption. Nazi troops marched through the streets of Helsinki toward the front as grim faced civilians, of whom apparently did not care for Na2i aid, looked an. CHERBOURG FALLS TO ALLIES British Tanks Rout Nazis American infantrymen, slugging their way yard by yard, finally conquered the German defenders of Cherbourg on Sunday. The closing hours of their were marked by a gigantic naval bombardment by American and British battleships, cruisers and destroyers, which steamed to within 15,000 yards of the Nazi-held shore defenses to blast the last defenders into submission. American engineers consider that Cherbourg harbor is so constructed that it would be extremely difficult for the Germans to render it totaliy useless. British tanks Wednesday defeated the main German armored force in western France in a daylight battle below Caen. The battle came after the British had taken up positions almost encircling Caen. The bulk of four German panzer divisions was reported defeated With heavy losses. Page 3 CASUALTIES HEAVY I Die There The battle for Saipan is costin g the American invaders the heaviest casualties of any ground action in the war against Japan. W ith approximately the island in our hands, there have been 1,47 4 Americans killed and 7,400 wounded, 878 are missing. There are no official figures on Jap total losses, but American troop s have buried nearly 5,000 enemy b odies. Naval guns and planes have been blast ing away at other Jap islands near Saipan to p reve;-,t reinforcements fro r : being sent. to the beleaguered Nips there. The Japanese island with the odd name of Yap, in the Carolines 700 miles southwest of Saipan, has been b o mbed for the sixth time since June 22. Eight Japanese planes were sho t down a s Lib erators unloaded 63 tons of bombs on Yap. Palau, also in the western Care lines, also was attacked. In ground fighting in China, the Americans have lost their a i r base at Hengyang, the last major Chinese position on the Canton-Hanko w rail road. Hengyang still is not in J a p anese hands, but it is encircled by three Japanese divisions, which bav e been by the Chinese of u sing poiso n gas to. gain their advantage. In Chinese f orces have started driving south from captured Moga un g down the main railway leading to Mandalay, other have been made in the Burma area.

Milgat Contrary to the general op1n1on held furtl..er along thi. s road of fantasy by Gis that they will their Army. Probably the first funCtion we will b careers as soon as "the duration and six" have gone by the boards, I for one hold that there will much that will linger on. The majority of us will have had at least four years of service come the day, and I'm ready to debate with one and all that after four years of Army indoctrinatioL, it will be a long time before you stop looking down your shoes to see if they're well-dubbed. Speculating on the peace.ful days to come, a GI can have a whale of a time transposing his Army details and formations into corresp.cnding niches in his civilian timetable. Before projecting ourselves into the future, we must first on the basic fundamentals--an Army and a comn.anding o"fficer. I have given some thought to the problem and have come to the only logical solution. my progeny will form the nucleus for my Army. The commanding officer, of course, will be me. My wife, naturally, will be either the executive officer or the adjutant, and possibly both, in the interests of efficiency, economy and social dictates. However, in order to avoid any usurpation, there will always be a sharp line of demarcation between her duties and mine. It is possible, how ever, that in some Army households a weak CO may find himself replaced by a more willful Wac CO. So, with the barest essentialu of our Army organized, we are ready to proceed concerned with is the matter of a C.Q In view of the fact that our Army rna be a bit on the youthful sideJ it i more than likely that CO and th executive officer will al ternatc on pull ing charge of quarters. This arrange ment is particularly imperative if th soldiers of your army are still in th bottle stage. The numerous incident that may occur in the dead of the nigh will call for experienced.hands. Basic tr-aining will be gi at p erj ic intervals, in keeping uhe S< ier's length of time in service. A soon as one of my soldiers approache the two-hitch mark, I shall begin read ing to him or her, as the case may be the Arttbles of War, which in my arm will consist of Mother Goose Rhymes, th Bobbsy Twins, and Hansel and Gretel, tb latter to make 11p for the "heavy" stuf contained in the famed Articles. I am determined that K. P. ; or ki tch. e police, shall not be the sword of Da mocles hanging over the heads of my sol diers' nor shall it ever be used as. threatening agent. On the contrary, intend to the full of rr authority as CO to see to 'it that K.P is to be one of the pleaaanter detail in my camp. Tnis will b ll=le in eral ways. First of all, mem of my command who expects to eat in rr mess hall will aid uhe mess officer (wl: doubles in brass as the executive ar: adjutant) in preparing each meal and :i cash disbursements will be made at strategic moments n

There will be adequate room in which to work, and there will at all times be sufficient equi;: : me:-,-L with which to do the job. The telling of the best jokes of the day and the singing of the leading tur.es of the week will be encouraged during this period. Under such circumstances the morale of my men will not deviate from its upward curve, particularly in of the fact that the K.P. pusher will be conspicuous by his absence. And, there will be no mess counter. If guests want to share our meals with us, they are welcome. During the first six years of service, my men will undergo rigid supervision in personal habits. In order to avoid pick-up details after their second h .itch the men will be taught to field strip all butts simply by placing them in the nearest receptacle. Out ori the lawn, there will be daily sprinkling and raking_ sessions, for I shall impress upon my soldiers the necessity of trim, neat lawns, in their future lives. Inspections will be daily affairs, with all discrepancies noted and memoranda of same forwarded to the supply and officer (also the mess officer and ex exutive. and adjutant). There will be a quota of shoe inspections, but I don't believe I shall insini on. "dubbin," on work a.ndplay shoes. There .will be orienta.tion lectures. If there is anything my army career has sold me on, it's orientation lectures, But, those lectures will be of im ori' entation in every sense of the word. They shall be free fro;a announcements by the first sergeant (the oldest soldier in the unit) and if the mess and supply officer and the executive and adjutant want to speak at those lectures she'll have to confine to strictly subjects. At these Jectures I will listen to all arguments, provoke some myself and answer all queries. If a question is popped which I cannot answer, I shall .have a dictionary; a :complete Encyclopedia Britannica, and a dire:t telephone line to John Kieran so that I can get t h e answer within a very short time. Sex lectures will be scheduled for all persoTUiel entering their fifth hitch in .the army. The discussiorts will be forthright and pointed and I shall have the family physician as guest speaker on several occasions. I will not. show any films on the subject. If necessary I shall have Marshall Goodman draw illustrations, but films shall be out. The only films shown to. the personnel of mY unit will be homemade movies and will come under the heading of "Why We Foug-ht." PT will occupy a reg-ular period each day in the life of my soldiers. Those periods will be confined to games of all sorts and possibly 10 minutes of calisthenics three times per week. There will not be any obstacle course, since I believe the funds necessary to run my army will take up every cent'I have to spare, leaving little left for doctor bills accrued to setting broken bones. .-=----:.---=-All men with less than 15 years of service will be poid by cash with o u t a voucher from a .sinking f und These d isb ursements will be made at mo;r.ents fro). the left hand trO,lf'P: pocket cash drawer.

TYNDALL AND EGLIN HOOK UP IN 13 DEADLOCK AS DARKNESS HALTS 3i HOUR GAME WITH SCORE AT The only team in T/F baseball history to tangle with the Tornadoes in extra innings has been its traditior.al rival and neighbor, the Eglin Field nine. Last year it was a 12-inning affair which s .aw Tyndall finallY win out. Last Wednesday, at Eglin, the two teams again locked horns, this time for 13 innings in a game which was three and a half hours in duration and was called on account of darkness with the score at 4-4. Holding a 3-0 lead going into the eighth inning, tyndall's Dale Livingston weakened and Eglin pushed across three runs on three hits t o tie the score. Neither team was able to tally agaln un til the 13th, when both scored a run. The tie game knocks out any chance for Tyndall to square its series with Eglin, as the men from the Proving Grounds hold a 2-0 edge with but one more game on the schedule. Merritt Lancaster hurled the entire game for Eglin, giving up 11 hits whlle walking none. Lef ty southard started on the mound for TYndall and during his four innings on the mound gave up two hits, striking out five and is suing tltree free passes. LiVing ston took over in the fifth and for the next nine innings gave up six :hits, struck out 10 Eglin batters and walked three. Third Baseman Joachim was the big gun for Eglin, collecting three hits in six trips to the plate. HUb Freeman did likewise f o r Tyndall, with Patterson, orange, Brown and southard each getting a pair or hits apiece to account for 11 hits off Lancaster. TYndall scored its first two runs in the third inning on three hits and added another tally in the fifth. In the hectic eighth, Lancas Ler, the first Eglin batter, flied out to short Le rtf ielde r Cariglia then singled to le rt. Bob Kind, playingat shortstop for Eglin, struck out !or the second out of the inning. But Mike Draemel, second baseman and fourth batter, caught one of Livingston's for a drive into left good for three bases, scoring the firs t Eglin run. W11 cearley, the next batter, drew a walk, putting the tying run on base. Charley Kress, who followed, also walked, loading t he bases JOachim, veteran Eagle third bas eman, then hit a sharp ground ball toward s second. HUb Freeman made a beautiful st.op and attempted out the runner rrom !irst; he missed his man and threw to first attempting to catch Joachim, but the batter was safe. Meanwhile two runs had scored arid the gaJile was tied at 3-3. tyndall had a chance to win the game in the tenth when Patterson und Freeman singled after Living ston struck out. With Patterson on third, Hines hit into a fielder s choice, Freeman going out 6 to 4. Orange, the next batter, was hit by a pitched ball, loading the bases. But Hockenberry, who followe d orange, forced him at second to end the inning. In the 13th, the Tornadoes fi nally pushed a run across when Orange singled, stole second and scored .on Paul Brown's bingle to right. The Eagles countered with the tying rally in their half of the inning on a triple by CharleY. K r ess, who scored on Joachim's grounder to short. The only honor garnered by TYn dall in the game was the rae t that for the first time this year they played errorless ball, and through 13 innings at that!
