"One of the most important things for youngsters to learn at an early age is water safety," Marques said. The swim program began Mo.iday and will run four weeks. (Courier News Photo) How About A Cokka, Tom? By TOM TIEOE NewsPaper Enterprise Assn, SAIGON, Viet Nam - (NBA) — This city is something else I recently arrived here from the war front and, with the temperature in the 90s and my thirst grown the worse for sev eral days on a warm canteen. I stopped by a French markel to get a soft drink. There began an episode I can only equate with eating pistachio nuts out of the shell — unrewarding but difficult to stop once begun. "I'd like to buy soda water," I told the clerk. He, a watch - fob - sized fel low with a long-ashed cigarette, eyed me suspiciously and asked: "What kind, monsieur?" "How about orange?" "We no have." "Then I'll take root beer." "We no have." "Grape?" "No." "Well, what in the hell do you have?" "Cokka," he saiU stiffly, "we have Cokka!" "AH right, then," I told him, 'I'll take six bottles." "No." "What?" "Sorry, monsieur, we only sell Cokka by the case." "Good Lord! Here, then, give me a case." I pulled out a pias- tre note but he, whose butt ash still refused to fall, did not take it. "Well, what's the matter now?" I asked. : Where are your empties, monsieur?" "Empties?" "Empties, you must have empties to tnrn in lor fulls." "Your're kidding." "No." "Look, how can I have empties unless I get fulls to drink first?" "Sorry, monsieur, no empties, no Cokka." We continued in that vein for a few moments and at length he said that I may be able to get empties at the Cokka plant, tear the river ."You go two block! north," he directed, 'past a pile of garbage, turn right near the machine gun "Forget it," I muttered, "I'll find it myself." I know I should have quit then but it was still hot and I was still thirsty. "Hello," I said to the plant worker. "Yes?" "I'd like some empty bottles please" . "Empty?" "Yes, it's a long story'.' "Let me see your credentials, sir." "Credentials?" "You're a food inspector, aren't you?" "No, no. I'm just thirsty." "Sorry," he said, "no creden- iunker and then go left to the I space. Today in History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Friday, June 3, the 153rd day of 1966. There are 211 days left i the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1942, the Battle of Midway began when U.S. Navy patrol planes spotted a vast Japanese armada of 53 warships and 20 supply vessels in the Pacific some 700 miles west of Midway Island. A violent battle ensued in which four Japanese carriers, two heavy cruisers and two destroyers rere sun. On this date in 1918, air mail service was inaugurated between New York, Boston and Montreal. In 1940, German planes bombed Paris. In 1942, Japenese war planes, raided Dutch Harbor, Alaska. In 1946, the president of the Soviet Union, Mikail Kalinin, died. Five years ago — President John F. Kennedy began a two- day conference with Soviet Pre- miei Khrushchev in Vienna. The President traveled to Vienna 'rom Paris where he had met with French President De Gaulle. . One year ago - The four-day, 62-orbit space flight of astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White aboard the Gemini 4 >egan. White was to make hli historic 20-minute, walk in tials, no empties.' As you might imagine, blew my bottle cap right there. The worker shrugged, moved back, mumbled something about a war being on, and finally told me I'd have to go the black market. "It's six blocks south," he said, "go left past a pile of garbage..." I finally got the empties, paid thrice what it costs for fulls, and on toward evening now, stumbled back to the market, my tongue thickly swollen. "Quick," I told the grocer, "give me a case of Cokka!" "Sorry," he said. "What? But I've got my empties here!" "But, monsieur, we're all sold out now. Come back tomorrow." Put Up or Pass Out! Van ren (McNlufHI STBdlctM Uc.) •IBIIUMM^ moved in above us. I have never heard such noisy people! They are constantly running, dropping things and moving the furniture. And their TV blares until the wee hours. You'd swear they were about to come crashing thru the ceiling at any moment. I complained to the apartment manager and she suggested I speak to them, so I went up and asked the wife in a VERY nice way if they could be a litle more quiet. Well, she practically slammed the door in my face! Since then, out of spite, they have been noisier than ever. I complained to the manager again, and she said she was sorry but there was nothing she could do. Our nerves are shot, Abby, We are riot old cranks. We are reasonable people. What should we do? We have another two years to go on our lease. ' . . . . STUMPED DEAR STUMPED: Assuming the apartment manager is not the owner, appeal to the owner of the bunding. If that doesn't bring results, . hunt up another apartment. And about that lease. Hunt up a lawyer. DEAR ABBY: My girl friend's father will not allow me around their house until I have a regular boy's haircut. I don't think this is fair. Everybody else likes my hair the way it is and so do I. It DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have a collection of beer steins on our mantle in the front room, some of which are quite expensive. Why does EVERYONE, children and adults alike, have to pick them up and examine them while we hold our breaths for fear they will drop one? We have told people over and over again to PLEASE not touch them, but they do anyway. My seven - year - old son suggested we put a sign on the mantle, DO NOT TOUCH." Would this be prop er? WORRIED IN TACOMA DEAR WORRIED: Not only would it be improper, it would be ineffective. The world is full of "counter pbo bics," who go thru life pushing doors marked PULL, and pulling doors marked PUSH. And on freshly painted benches one can plainly see the fingerprints of doubting Thomases who don't believe in signs. So either put your precious collection out of reach, or lock It in a china closet. DEAR ABBY: We live in a first class apartment and pay high rent. We walk as lightly as possible so as not to disturb the tenants below us. We turn our TV down after 10 p.m and ask our guests to keep the noise down out of consideration for our neighbors. Last month a young couple feet ever my ears and li quit* long around the back, but I've seen boys with lots longer hair than mine. I have had trouble at school with my teachers about my hair, too, but nobody has given me the bad time my girl's father has. I'm sure the kids would laugh at me if I suddenly showed up at school with a short haircut and I don't want to be laughed at. Please give me an answer besides "get haircut." LONG HAIRED BOY DEAR BOY: If you want to see your girl at her house you bad better get a haircut. You say you'll be "laughed at" at school if you appear with short hair. So, since it would take more manliness on your part to faee me Jeen e» yetr ew- temporaries, I W, •« • man, and sheer (he locks. Problems? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069.
