The occasion was a visit to Fort Lee, where the young boys and girls were treated to such things as jump tower experience, movies and lectures,.and refreshments prepared at the post. There also was a visit to the Quartermaster Corps Museum, a place of real interest for any visitor, a place where the history of army .dress can be traced from the beginning of our armed forces. Not Only Thing Of course, army dress isn't the only thing the museum features, and more is coming as there is a big rebuilding program going on there. One of the chief items of interest which can be seen at the museum, and one which drew much interest from the young visitors from Petersburg, is the display showing item? from the "Lady Be Good " This is the World War II bomber which was found in the African desert recently after laying there nearly two decades, and many of these items are in good repair. Host to the group was Col. Vernon Huller, commanding officers of Special Troops, and travelling with about 300 youngsters were City Recreation Director Rolanc C. Day, and Assistant Director Nelson Ramsey. Jump Tower First Stop The children were taken to the post in four buses, and the firs: stop for most of them was the jump tower, where they were given a chance to take a practice jump, just as do the troops in training. Those who made the jump were presented certificate signifying that they are "qualifiec jumpers." The kids got a big thrill out p: this phase of the program, bu c their hosts were careful to keep the refreshments until after this jump. MSgt. Walter Whitehead wa? in charge of preparing the refresh, ments, and he had prepared 1,200 cookies and 60 gallons of refresh ing drinks. Sgt. Whitehead said he was preparing another 1,200 cookies and 60 gallons for · the visit o the children from the Negro play grounds to the post today. Taken to Classroom On leaving the jump area, th youngsters were taken to a class room, where they were given brief lecture on Air Force dro activities, and were shown a film on all the steps in dropping mil tary equipment. The instructor in charge of th class was highly complimentarj of the attenliveness of his charge? pointing out that he rarely get. an audience which is as quie and listens as closely. Then it was on to the museum where the boys and girls were con ducted on a tour by MSGT. Jes se Travis and MSgt. Tom Con nelly, assistant curators. They ar real experts on the history of th Quartermaster Corps, and th time spent listening to thtm an looking around the museum i well spent. Some of the items from th "Lady Be Good" which can h seen in the Fort Lee Museum ar a life preserver, flashlight, part o a parachute, pistol belt, a map rations which still are edible, an .two watches which still run.
