PAT ON THE BACK

April 02, 1956

FATHER OSWALD McGINN
One of the nation's better trick shots is Father Oswald T. McGinn, a 77-year-old Roman Catholic priest now in retirement at San Antonio, Texas. His favorite trick is splitting a bullet balanced on top of a razor blade. Advises Father McGinn: "Shooting is a matter of coordination between sight, judgment and muscular reaction. When you're on sight, squeeze the trigger."

LIEUT. WILLIAM VENDL
