(UDM "Engraving) A Swea City assistant Boy Scout leader, Lynn E. Pulver. came up with an idea this summer that really ballooned into quite a gdn safety project for more than two dozen Swea City boys from nine to 16 years of age. Lynn had been pressed on the subject of target practice by several boys, and finally promised to take them to some area where such practice would be safe and sane. Before even getting out for the first practice session, Lynn decided it would be a good idea to give the boys a little training on gun safety. Pulver contacted Conservation Officer Frank Tellier of Burt and the pair got their heads together and came up with an honest to goodness gun safety program, designed to teach all of the boys the right and wrong ways of handling guns. The program developed rapidly and went over with a bang. Opening meeting of the group was held July 8 in the Swea City ligh school auditorium. A total of 17 boys enrolled the first night, when the age limit was set at 11 to 10 years. Tellier gave a short talk and Police Chief Al Boekelman gave a sharp-shooting pistol exhibition which delighted all the Wyatt Earp and Matt Dillon fans in the audience. Besides the 17 boys there the first night, 12 parents and interested adults sat in on the session. Gun mechanisms, safety laws, firing positions and proper handling of guns while in the field ' were discussed at latei meetings, which continued on a weekly basis until Sunday, Aug. 11, when the entire group made the trip to the rifle range south of Algona for — you guessed it. that target practice promised early in the summer. Boys registered during tho summer included John Guycr, Bob Boland, Garry Griffith, Richard Spencer, Roger Conway. Arnie Linde, Ronnie Lindc, Hal Alward, Jerry Rasmussen, Danny Smouse, Billy Hubbard, Rickie Seylar, Dennis Griffith, Junior Loomcr, Jimmy Zing; J e r r y Thompson, Robert Thompson. John Boland, Michael Stewart, Ed Sanders, Richard Johnson, Jim Rowlett, Allen Mathers, Richard Mathers, Steven Roberts, Terry Smith, Tommy Hurlburt and Terry Johnson.
