About Bart Beck

EARLY INVENTOR

As I look back on things now, it seems like Paul Streeter got into more than his share of trouble. One time, shortly after his dad, Bert, had returned from deer hunting, Paul found some of the left over ammunition (30-30 Rifle) and decided that he was going to make a cannon. He managed to bore a hole of about the right size, lengthwise through a stick of stove wood. He pushed a live round into the hole and then either lost his nerve or couldn't figure out a way to fire it. He then discovered that he couldn't get the cartridge out of the hole, so he threw the stick of wood back onto the wood pile. Some time later his mother unknowingly put the piece of wood into the kitchen cook stove and word was immediately circulated that Paul had given up cannon building.
