Abstract: ln the early thirties, a battleship was firing antiaircraft practice off the coast of California. An aviator friend of mine, in a large patrol plane, was towing the sleeve target back and forth at an altitude of about 12,000 feet. After several hours, with the usual delays caused by low ceilings and by the range being fouled, the battleship decided to secure for lunch and then, as an afterthought, directed the plane to "Lie-to for lunch."
