a A Recently the picture tube hit us with “Miracle On 34th St.” a story about an old man everybody believed to be crazy because he thought he was Santa Claus. To many of us the movie wasn’t new. However this time it prompted me to recollect a story to my govern- ment class in high school by an aging teacher. This is his story: Years ago the postal morgue for lost or non- deliverable mail in Washington D.C. received a letter addressed to Santa Claus. Now there is nothing really unusual about the postal morgue receiving a letter addressed to Santa Claus since each year it receives millions of letters from children throughout the United States. The only strange thing about this one letter was that it arrived in February. At first the young postal employee believed the letter might have been delayed somewhere during its journey however as curiousity got the better of him he decided to ask permission to open it. Permission granted he proceeded to open the letter. It read: Dear Santa I ju...

Page Four-A tt a- Carless characters clutter the landscape with trash While prowling about on the range roads criss-crossing this massive installation we gathered enough evidence and facts to form a hypothesis those individuals making use of the silver barrels placed along these thoroughfares are lazy have terribly defective senses of direction and distance and misunderstand the purpose of these barrels on many occasions. We can’t actually apply this theory to the majority of the patrons of the trash receptacles in the range areas. However those few having established themselves as prime offenders do enough to blight the landscape to make the efforts of the majority futile. The trash receptacles (50-gallon drums mounted and unmounted) are often surrounded by more trash than can be found within the barrel’s confines. Either these individuals who cause the mess are too lazy to get out of their vehicles and deposit the trash or they can’t hit the barrel from three feet away or both. To...

Page Eight-A If you ever get up around 9 o’clock on a Saturday or Sun- day morning and happened to scan the skies above West Ft. Hood you may see what ap- pears to be sheets floating through the air. But if you take a closer look you will see that there are ob- jects attached to those sheets and if you move still closer you will see that these objects are a a people parachuting through the air. And two members of MAS- STER (Modern Army Selected Systems Test Evaluation and Review) may be some of the parachutists you see that early in the morning. Major Shirley Draper first began parachuting when he was an ROTC instructor at Missouri State University in 1970. As Maj. Draper ex- plained it “One of my students was a jumper and the two of us tried to form a collegiate jump club.
