(AP).-!-5aid the trala Steward to the army colonel— Mrs., George White, former Kansan now living In Los Angeles, reports on a visit here that she went Into the club car and found ah army colonel arguing with the steward. The colonel, It seems, wanted a drink.. "No liquor sales in Kansas," the steward explained. "What kind of a state is this anyway," the officer ranted. "I don't see how people live here. Just look at it, just a flat country—nothing to see, nothing to do. People from Kansas never do anything." At tJiat point, Mrs. White says, the steward broke in with,; "How about Mr. Elsenhower? He's from Kansas." Thete wasn't another Word from the colonel. Somewhere in New Guinea, Cpl. Paul Dumler of Russell, Kas., a ; military policeman, was on duty at a dance—and wishing he wa? anything but an MP. A pretty WAC tripped up and asked if he please wouldn't 4ance with her, but Dumler remembered ;hjs orders. He couldn't leave his until properly relieved. The WAC Epun around, walked over and talked with a man standing at the side of the floor. The man signaled to the corporal. ' ' "MP," he said, "take off, that brassard and pistol and dance with tills.young lady." It was an order—from a two-star general, the commanding officer of the division. . Remember the story about (he absent-minded chap who lost a big bass drum? , Its equal has been found at the Independeiice army air field. In a recent edition of the field'spubli­ cation, the Daily Bulletin, there appeared this ad: - "Lost.: Large end of wooden- bed. Finder please call hospital supply." Booth Myers Jr., of Wichita,' "is a determined lad. "Say," the 10-year-old dema:nded of a man who called at the Myers liome on business, "do you know anything about pulling teeth?- I've got a loose one. My mother is gone . this evening and I can't get the string around it." The surprised visitor helped tie the string around the tooth. Booth tied the other end to a doorknob, then Shut the door with himself in one room and a younger brother, Ronnie in the other. "Now yank the door open," called Booth. Ronnie did—and out came the tooth, : ; James H. Pulton, assistant cashier of a Pittsburg bank, devised a door slop of two bricks wrapped In ordinary wrapping paper and tied with a string. It looked something like a Christmas package, and you can't blame passersby for what happened. VI- sionlng the contents as Christmas Klfts someone, one after another they picked it up and carried it Inside to bank officials. Patiently, bank employes returned it each time to its place beside the front doors. 'The package was becoming sadly worn by continued handling, and Pulton decided there was but one • thing .to do. In big letters, he inscribed the word "Doorstop" on the package's cover.
