i am a big fan having met marion morrison (John Wayne0 WHEN THEY WERE RUNNING HEREFORDS HERE NEAR lAWRENCE ON THE LAND OWNED BY THE HERCULES POWDER COMPANY WHICH TURNED OUT BOTH ROCET FUEL AND SMALL ARMS AMMUNITION.. tHE STORAGE AREAS WERE WIDELY SCATTERED OVER PASTURE LAND AND WERE CONCRETE AND EARTH DUGOUTS. HE RAN A LARGE HERD HERE. i WAS A MEM BER OF "THE RED SLIPPER KEY CLUB AT THE TOP OF THE ELDREGE HOTEL. iT HAD BEEN REBUILT LARGER AFTER QUANTRILL BURNED IT DURING HIS INFMOUS RAID ON lAWRENCE, KANSAS DURING THE CIVIL WAR. kANSAS WAS DRY THEN, BUT IN THE RED SLIPPER WE STOCKED IT WITH OUR OWN BOOZE AND I HAD A PLENTIFUL SUPPLY. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN ABOUT 1965 TO 1968. iT WAS BOTH AN EXCLUSIVE RESTAURANT AND A DRINKING ESTABLISHMENT. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF SIGNING HIM IN AS MY GUEST MORE THAN ONCE BECAUSE WE HAD A MUTUAL FRIEND.ERNEST KELLOGG GANN A FORTMER CAPTAIN AT AMERICAN AIRLINES AND A MEMBER OF THE ATC (THE AIR TRANSPORT COMMAND) IN WW2. HE WAS ALSO A SUCCESSFUL AUTHOR WHO WROTE TWO BOOKS THAT JOHN WAyNE HBAD STARRED IN THE MOVIES THAT WERE MADE FROM THOSE BOOKS. ''the high and the mighty' AND " ILAND IN THE SKY" ERNIE GANN WAS FROM ANACORTES WASHINGTON ATHE THE SAN JUAN ISLANDS AND WAS MY MENTOR BOTH IN FLYING AND SAILING. HE ONCE SAID IN PRINT "THE ONLY PERSON YOU CAN TRUST IN HOLLYWOOD IS JOHN WAYNE." OF COURSE HE AND WARD BOND HAD PLAyed football on the same team at usc, where he got the injury thay gave him that waY OF WALKING THAT WAS SO IMITATED. HE WAS A CHAIN SMOKER AND COLULD DOWN A QUART OF BOOAE AND WALK OUT UNDER HIS OWN ;POWER. WE WERE EZATCTLY THE SAME HEIGHT BUT HE WAS HEAVIER THAN MY 220 LBS IN THOSE DAYS AND HE COULD RIDE A LITTLE UNLIKE SOME OF THE COWBOY STARS, BUT WHAT THE HELL DID THAT MATTER HE WAS THE DUKE.? i LIKED HIM A LOT AND SAW HIS FIRST YATCH TIED UP IN THE sAN jUANS, BUT HIS SECOND WAS A CONVERTED MINE SWEEPER CALLED "THE WIOLD GOOSE" AND HE AND ERNIE BOTH LOVED TO BE AT SEA. hE AND STIRLING HAYDEN WHO HAD HIS CAP;TAIN PAPERS IN HIS TWENTYS AND WAS 6 FOOT 5INCHS WERE POLITICAL ENEMIES BUT ERNIE WAS A FRIEND TO BOTH. HE TAUGHT ME MORE ABOUT FLYING THAN ANYONE ELSE INCLUDING THE NEED FOR GOOD LUCK.
