Pacific Grove Tribune Fri., Feb. 6, 1945
Lt. R.G. Smith Once Struck at Golf Balls Now Aims at Jap Planes
Lt. Roswell G. Smith is now in the Dutch East Indies, piloting a B-24 having left the United States in November. He visited his mother, Mrs. Raymond Hodges, last August. Lt. Smith, who won his wings in June, is a graduate of Pacific Grove High School and Salinas junior college where he took a prominent part in school activities as well as other activities. At Salinas he was student body president, and at the high school he was secretary of the student body and president of the senior class. He majored in engineering. Golfing was his particular sports favorite. As a high school student he took the Spence cup for two years; won the open junior championship in 1941, and the Fry cut just before he entered the service in March, 1943. All of which means hard luck for those Jap planes that come within Lt. Smith’s reckoning.
