Caption Reads: "GOL' WALLOPER, 14th AAF Consolidated Liberator named for the bait used by Provo, Utah's famed sportsman, Earl Smoot, now confined to bed by paralysis, at a 15th AAF base in Italy. The Liberator received its name when crew members heard S/Sgt Richard Clark of Provo tell of Smoot's success with this bait and the paralyzed man's request that a bomber be named for him."
