I was born in Blue Rapids, j K;ii . and will be 24 April 18. I lay claim to being a small town fellow. The big cities never appealed to me and I doubt if they ever will. I like the country roads better than the gay white ways. Right down In my heart I feel there Is too mnch wickedness in the big cities. It takes tne country peo ple to live right.

Jackson, cham pion rifle shot of California's Na tional Guard, and one of the beat marksmen ln the nation. "Good coaching Is the first se cret, squeezing the trigger is the second and using the gun strap as an arm support, the third. '"I attribune my success as a marksman largely to the good coaching I received ln the begin ning. Since becoming capable myself I nave given much help ln developing other marksmen. "The thing to ntrlve for' is aot to develop a few crack shot* but to establish a high average In a body of men. Of course, evsry good shot should be developed as far aa he will go—he's of J»st that much more vaius. When I Joined Company I three years ago, we had but one expert shot In tbe company. Now we bare 22. That shows what proper coaching will do. * "Average aarksmanshlp shoold be established throughout the citizenry of tbe nation, for It Is the volunteer who makes the sol dier.

I am the seventh son of a family of seven Bons. There must be some charm in that. I ineaHiire 6 feet 6 inches and my blx brothers are each more than 6 feet tall. All or them, like their father and Fultons before them, have followed the plow. They are scattered on farms ln the west and northwest, and if I win the heavyweight champion ship I am going to bring them all together and buy a place big enough to give all of them a farm for their families. I remember little of my early life. We had such a large fam ily my mother and father worked hard to keep the kiddles in clothes. Like the other boys, I took odd jobs on nearby farms and lesrned farming. Before I was 15 I was thrown on ray own resources. I learned to "ride the rods" and found It easy to travel great distances without a cent of money. I can remember being thrown Hergl. W. R. Jackson demon Mrs ting the use of the gun strap as a brace for the arm. In Europe just as soon as he had donned his uniform. Efficient marksmanship is a great step to ward preparedness.

Those were times whan a fellow's life wasn't worth a dime. But the only way a fal low knows how good he is, Is when he Is away from home, without money and without friends. 1 guess the Irish and Scotch blood In my veins gave me the fighting qualities to keep going. My mother, who lives in Beatrice, Neb., was of Irish birth and her mainden name was Murphy. My father, who has been dead a number of years, was of Scotch birth. During the time I was beating it around the country, my site got me by In many places where a smaller lad of my ags could never have passed.
