Pistolman
Claims He's
Easy Target
NEW YORK (MP)-The world's
best pistol shot, a sharp-eyed Army
sergeant, acknowledges he'd be an
easy pickoff for Wyatt Earp or the
Lone Ranger in a gun duel.
M/Sgt. Huelet L. Joe Benner is
"top gun" with a .45 revolver but,
shattering the illusions of pop-
eyed TV viewers and Western
movie fans, says he can't shoot
from the hip.
"Most hip-shooters couldn't hit
a barn at 100 yards," the thick-
chested sergeant from Paragould,
Ark., added. "To be a good shot,
you must concentrate and take
aim."
Any Wyatt Earp fan knows that
to stop long enough to take aim
against the Western marshal is
the same as endorsing a ticket to
the graveyard.
Pistol Champion
But Benner doesn't shoot in
movies. He just shoots in tourna-
ments. And he's five-time national
pistol champion, twice winner of
the world crown and defending
gold medalist in the 50-meter slow
fire competition of the Olympics.
From 40 yards Benner can put
six straight bullets into a bulls-
eye no bigger than a postage
stamp, can keep a tin can jump-
ing along the ground with a
steady stream of bullets and can
send a'.45 slug crashing into the
blade of an ax, causing half of it
to explode a balloon on the right
and the other half to bust a bal-
loon on the left.
Benner is 39, 5 feet 10 and 225
pounds. He is like old Western
heroes in at least one respect. He
believes in clean living to keep
his trigger finger firm.
He doesn't drink or smoke, and
hasn't had a cup of coffee for 20
years.
"Coffe's bad for the shooter's
nerves," he says.

Importance
Of Voting
Made Clear
By JOY MILLER
The individual voter wields more
power at the polls than he prob-
ably thinks he does.
One vote in each precinct may1
decide a candidate's future-the
records are full of examples.
That's why the person who excuses
his non-voting with "My one vote
doesn't mean anything, why
bother?" isn't up on his facts.
In 1952 a record U.S. vote was
cast-63 per cent of Americans of
voting age went to the polls, com-
pared with percentages like 80 to
95 in Sweden, Italy, England and
Belgium.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
carried Missouri by 29,599 votes.
Missouri has 4,666 election pre-
cincts. Thus President Eisen-
hower's margin of victory repre-
sented about six votes for each
election precinct in the state.
In South Carolina Stevenson's
victory margin boils down to seven
votes per precinct. In Kentucky
and Tennessee the winning mar-
gin also was 10 or less votes per
precinct. In 12 other states the
margin was less than 35 votes
per precinct; in 30 states it was
less than 60. Only in 10 states was
it more than 100 votes per pre-
cinct.
In some of the important con-
tests of recent years a compara-
tively few votes were decisive. In
the Connecticut gubernatorial
election in 1948, for example,
Abraham Ribicoff (D) defeated
John Lodge (R) by 3,115 votes-
and close to a million ballots were
cast in that election.
Close Elections
Here are some other close elec-
tions: In 1952 Wayne Aspnall
(D) of Colorado was elected to the
House of Representatives with a
plurality of 29 votes-out of 79,323
cast. That was the closest in the
whole country that year.
In the 1954 Congressional elec-
tions, Richard Neuberger (D) won
a Senate seat from Oregon by
2,462 out of 569,088 votes cast, and
Frederic Coudert (R) was sent to
the House of Representatives from
New York by a plurality of 314
votes out of 88,000.
Most recently, in the 1956 Maine
election, the first district House
race ended up 28 votes apart. The
unofficial tabulation gave the vet-
eran Rep. Robert Hale 58,027 to
57,999 for Democrat James C.
Oliver. A tabulation error of only
.00025 per cent could change the
unofficial result. All ballots, con-
sequently, were called in to safe-
guard then until an expected re-
count can be made. The official
result probably won't be known
until Oct. 3 when the governor and
council meet.
The next time therefore anyone
is tempted to think his vote
doesn't count, he might ponder
these close races-and the ones
the 1956 presidential election is
likely to turn up, after he has
missed his chance.
