Army Air Forces together with an Australian official probably owe their lives to their ability to shoot straight in a contest with several hundred dark- skinned natives in the jungles of New Guinea.

Bandy and flic officers had set out from a small landing field in New Guinea's wild hinterland to inspect an airplane which had crashed some lime before, a part of the bizarre war Americans and Australian.? are righting out there. Their presence was resented by several hundred natives, naked except for a narrow cloth around their waists, each hand, clutching a bow ami arrow. Capl. E. W. Straw stood with his Ah automatic ready in his hnnti. The native fired first at a far aivay target and his bow pierced the center of it .Straw took careful aim and fired. His bullet split the native's arrow. The natives were convinced and thus the Issue was won. Lieut. Bandy, who has often visited here, is the son of Mrs. Faye Handy ol Memphis, lie attended Memphis State College and received his commission at Ellington Field, Houston, Tex., and was assigned to Atlantic patrol duty for several-months before being assigned to the Pacific theater.
