They bring me buck to reul- ly, ^eeinino Lo reach right into the core of my brain. The vivid :nental picture of myself standing ! n the biu doorway of the plane ready to jump keeps coming back to me. I fight agfiin.st it. but its a losing battle. I can't seem to stem the vision of that intense moment, waiting for the command "Go" from the jumpmastcr. Will I be able to ho'.u my nerve, or will I give out at the hst moment? "Stand Up. Number One." It's the command of the jump-master It brings me back to my .senses. My heart beats faster as the leading man gets read to gt> through the ordeal of his first jump. Mine isn't far away. I start thinking of all my paratrooper training. It was much more intensified than my ordinary infantry recruit drill. I recall all the parachute course work that I went through >vhich is supposed to make the actual jumping mere childs play. Those iiours of calisthenics hardened me and gave me cndur- ' ance beyond my \viltle.st imagination. Those daily double-time hikes started off as nightmares, but soon I could go for miles without a whimper. I never knew my body could be bent into so many positions until I had finished weeks of physical drill on the Trainasium — that manmade torture device, i crawled upside clown and backwards through its squares of iron pipes, climbed its hand-burning ropes, jumped off its high platforms and ran clown its inclined ladders until I thought I was standing- on my head. But I don't regret one twist, one jump, one rope burn, for I know full well that every bit of. work made my chances of coming through my jumps without considerably better. Urges Physical Course For Flabby Professors CAMBRIDGE, ..Mass. (UP)—If Prof. Karl Sax af Harvard's botany department has his way, all "fat"Hubby, pot-bellied" university professors will take compulsory physical training. ... ••••:••-• Undergraduates began a compul-" sory exercise program April G and . Prof. Sax believes faculty members should join them ii% their four- hours-a-weck workouts. In a letter to the Harvard Crimson, college daily, he writes that- Inst fall a dozen professors eagerly began exercises, but enthusiasm waned «o quickly that only four or- fivc remain of the original group" He doubts whether many of his. fellow teachers would be able to follow the student conditioning program.. Prof, Sax practices what . he preaches. The 50-year-old rugged teacher does his calisthenics at a- college gym twice iv week' \vith his! son, William P. $ax,.a Harvard sophomore. Urges Golf Trophy Funds Be Spent For Ambulances PORTLAND. Ore, (UP)— Ther.e'11, be no more golf trophies for the duration in Oregon if Presideent Oscar Furuset of the Oregon .Golf, association hns his way. He suggests 'that ribbons' tic awarded and the funds heretofore spent for trophies be used for the purchase of tin ambulance for some branch of the armed, forces. , . : •.

He will •know how to turn himscU so that QIC hits the earth while .facing In the direction the wind Ls carrying him. We had plenty of practice doing that in our ]ihnp:ng on the bin training towers. My first cxperi- •unce riding on the chute, which is controlled in its descent by wires, seems like' child's piny compared to what lies ahead of me. /But it didnt seem so then, can't forget tha-t feeling of height in looking down from its 250-foot top the first time.

M17-24-31-A7-14-21 2.10 :i.20 2.10 .2U .40 .92 .02 .92 1.IJS Announcements The Courier News lias been authorized to announce the following candidacies, subject to the Democratic primary in August. For State Senate L. H. AUTRY For Representative W. J. "BILL" WUNDERLICH JAMES G. COSTON County Treasurer JACK FINLEY ROBINSON (for re-election) County Jndfe ROLAND GREEN (for re-election) County Clerk T. W. POTTER (for re-election) Tax Assessor W. "BUDDY" WATSON ifor re-election) Sheriff and Collector HALE JACKSON (for re-election) Circuit Clerk HARVEY MORRIS (for re-election) The plane's slowing up. It jolts me back to the present. It means the number one man is about to 'jump. "Hook up," commands the lieutentant. "Stand to door." The jumper has nis static line. hooked to the long wire running the length of the cabin. The .static line is attached to the chute and will rip the cover off automatically when he leaps, opening the chute to the blast of the airplane propellers. "Go." barks the commanding officer. Only a slight hesitation to gulp down a lump in his throat, and away into space springs the number one man. We watch from the windows. Like clockwork the static line rips off the cover, and the big chute pops out. PRACTICE -SEEMED TOUGH—THEN 7 We appreciate the welcome feeling that hits the jumper in the pit of the .stomach as he is jerked —"that heavenly jerk"—to slow .spced by the billowing of the .silken chute. Now he's probably hooting and howling with glee as he dangles on the end of the big .silk umbrella. posed to Simula i c the actual shock in' plane jumping I thought I could claim I was a parachutist wru-n they cut me loose from the free tower for the first time. ; My big chute carried injury \ me away from the tower, gliding on the wind, but I landed like a feather. I had my heart in my throat at first, but I soon found that there was nothing to it, and from then on I looked foi'7/ard to my next "ride." I tell myself t.hc plane jumping shouldn't be iny more difficult than the tower jumping. The only difference being the height. And the 1250 feet at which I'll leap from the plane will only be further insurance against any mishap, for it will give me more time to correct any fault—time, if necessary, to pull the rip cord on my emergency chute which Ls packed across my chest. But .1 can't quite convince myself. I get an increased feeling of near-panic as I realize my turn is getting so much nearer. The plane is about completing its circle to get in position for thn next jumper to make his exit. I try to recall the many things I learned in my parachute basic course. 'I'm well up on tumbling in the wind. They put me on a chute and turned that, high-speed wind machine on it, carrying me across the field at a fnmtic clip, and still wn.s- able to roguln my feot and collapse the chute. But I shouldn't need much of Lhiit training today, for the wind is extremely mild. "STAND 111" NUMBER TIHIEE" My chuto-piicking training, no Important in tho lii'e of n pani- trooper, will come in Imndy, though, for I'll nave Lo gather my chute nnd repack It this afternoon right niter I jump. 1 suppose I'll be just us busy uftcr I get In my five qualifying jumps. I'll have to letirn how t.o operate locomotives, run nil kinds of other vehicles including j\ tank. I'll be instructed in methods of demolishing tank, cars, bridges, how to cut wires, etc. A pivni- troopcr's schooling seems never to be clone. The plane slows up again. Number two goes. I'm next. The plant! continues on its wide circle course, The plane Ls at the right speed for jumping—90 miles an hour. My thoughts keep racing along. I'll take a good hand hold nnd, on the command I'll give a healthy spring and leap far out. "Stand up number three." My breath seems inadequate us I rise to my feet. "Hook up.','.. .There, my static line is securely fastened. "Stand to door.".. .I'll [iel a good ,.."Go!"...Whoosh...Uggg!l!. Things are confused. Why I'm floating like u lily on a lake.
