LJ Naval Photographic Center A hypnotist says his client claims that she was Seaman 1st Class John Gillespie on the USS Nevada. The ship is shown (center) during the attack on Pearl Harbor. A day that will live on 'Mysteries A DAY, from page A 1 Baranowski said it began in 1980, when the client came to him for help in weight loss. One of Baranowski's techniques, he said, is to take a client back to an early age to see whether and how she has been "programmed" to overeat for instance, by parents who tell a child, "There are children starving in China" or "Eat everything or Mommy won't love you." When the woman was regressed to age 2, however, she was in a nightmare about water burning, fire surrounding her, and planes attacking. Baranowski said he quickly brought her up to age 4 and then age 8, and she was still in the nightmare. Baranowski questioned the woman's family and determined that she had had this nightmare all her life. She also became very moody and teary each year around Dec. 7. Several months later, the woman had lost about 30 pounds but not the nightmare. Baranowski said he led a tour group to Hawaii, and the woman, who was 27 at the time, went along. "One day, the group met at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel for a harbor tour," he said. "Everybody else was laughing and happy, and (the woman) was extremely upset. She kept saying all those hotels weren't supposed to be there, and she was very agitated." When the group got to Pearl Harbor for the tour, he said, his client was almost out of control, saying the planes were coming and everyone had to run. On the tour boat, Baranowski said, she was sobbing and saying, "I don't want to die, oh Sam, oh Sam." He said that when they reached the USS Arizona Memorial, she lost it completely. "She was running up to people, grabbing them by the shoulders and saying, 'They're drowning, they're drowning, oh Sam, Sam,' " Baranowski said. He said he took her to a private corner and hypnotized her. "When I asked her name, she said, 'Seaman 1st Class John Gillespie of Omaha, Nebraska, of the USS Ne vada,' " Baranowski said. "He was 20 years old, and his best friend was Sam, Sherman Maurice Watts, who was on the USS Arizona." Baranowski says he now has spent eight years tape-recording the woman under , hypnosis and seven years researching her story at a cost of about $51,000. He has more than 700 pages of documents in an effort to prove that his client's recall of that day is accurate. With Scanlan's help getting military records, Baranowski was able to confirm that there was a John Gillespie in the Navy and that he did die at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Kris Palmer of Los Angeles, segment producer for Unsolved Mysteries, heard the story from a friend who had met Baranowski at a resort. "We get hundreds and hundreds of calls and letters a week, most of which aren't really mysterious," she said. "But this was intriguing. The people involved were credible, and after studying it, I got more interested in the fact that a 27-year-old woman would know what went on" on that day. Palmer is unsure of the airdate for the show, but said it will not be before fall. Among the mysteries the show will try to resolve is the woman's memories of John Gillespie's Hawaiian sweetheart, whom he had nicknamed "Sugar." They had had a fight the night of Dec. 6, and he was supposed to return the next afternoon so they could resolve their problem. "Under hypnosis, (the woman) described 'Sugar,' and a sketch artist drew pictures," Baranowski said. "They will be shown on the show. We're hoping she's still alive. If so, she can confirm all this and more." Scanlan said he had mixed emotions when Baranowski requested his help. "I had never made up my mind if I believed in reincarnation," he said. "After listening to Frank's tapes, I thought it just might be possible." "After retrieving records and helping Baranowski validate the woman's claims, is he a believer now? "You bet," he said. A Tip of the Hat to: Phoenix Baptist Hospital and Medical Center Employee of the Year Betty Robinson And "Hats off" to All Phoenix Baptist Employees During National Hospital Week May 12-18 All's forgiven as WWII dogfighters reunite Reuters FREDERICKSBURG, Texas Two World War II fighter pilots, one American and one Japanese, renewed their acquaintance this weekend for the first time since Dec. 7, 1941, when , they dueled in the sky over the Philippines. At a symposium recalling the beginning of the Pacific war, American and Japanese veterans of Pearl Harbor and other Pacific battles of World War II stood united to remind the world not to forget that great conflagration. In Japan, "they don't teach that part of history covering World War II we must try not to make the same mistakes again," said Sakuro Sakai, who piloted a Japanese Zero during the war. Sam Grashio, an American P-40 pilot who fought Sakai over Clark Field in the Philippines on the day the Japanese also attacked Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, said, "I think the first value of these events is we don't ever want to allow ourselves to be unprepared again. Buf I don't feel we should feel any animosity toward these people." At their first meeting, Sakai shot a hole in Grashio's plane, which forced the American to land but caused him no serious injuries. Their duel over the Philippines has been documented by World War II historians on both sides. Their second meeting, at the veterans' gathering, a time of remem brance and friendship, was a fitting counterpoint to their confrontation. "He put his arm around me, and I put my arm around him," Grashio said. Sakai said, "I have no animosity toward anyone. I admire those men who fought against me. They did their job well." The men, both now in their mid-70s, sat together Saturday while the Confederate Air Force, a group of aviation-history buffs, dropped fake bombs in a cornfield to re-enact the attacks on Pearl Harbor and Clark Field. At the end of the day, the two men swapped hats and embraced. Others attending the symposium included Kazuo Sakamaki, the first prisoner taken by the Americans when his minisubmarine ran aground trying to enter Pearl Harbor, and Zenji Abe, an ace pilot who led a dive-bombing attack on the USS Arizona. The Arizona sank in Pearl Harbor, killing 1,177 men on board. The symposium, which began Thursday and ended Saturday night, also included a number of panel discussions by veterans and historians on Pearl Harbor and the events leading up to it. The event was sponsored by the U.S. Naval Institute and the Admiral Nimitz Foundation, which has a museum in Fredericksburg, where Adm. Chester Nimitz, a hero of World War II, was born. Fredericksburg is about 70 miles west of Austin. B oring Better, What Would It Be Like?
