GIKim Prises Gum Amid 'C'Rations - , . . . - ; , , B y H A L BOYLE ; U.S. EIGHTH ARMY HEADQUARTERS, Korea, Nov. 2. (/P)-rThe republic of Korea (ROK) doughboy has his own native version of GI Joe's famous combat- ration. It has helped fuel him in his, swift .foot marches through north Korea." GI Kim; the typical South Korean infantryman, seems to like, his new '"C" rations. But if an American soldier were handed a package'of this, his reaction prob- , ably would be: "Whaddaya do with It, anyway-fire it from a mortar?" And if told he had to eat it he would ask,-indignantly, "How do I get » transfer out of this chicken- feathered outfit anyway?" For he would find that he had to gorge raw dried codfish, with tinned 1 .chicken', and noodles; eat rice cakes flavored with red pepper Instead of. crackers with meat and beans. Then, he would munch green peas and beans for dessert'instead of gulping canned fruit cocktail and coffee. These might be straage and unacceptable to his palate, but they are staple items in GI Kim's diet. His "C" rations contain such other delicacies as rice starch to be kneaded with water into a thickish paste, dried cuttlefish and kelp-or seaweed. The only tilings in the package familiar to American troops are salt cubes, sugar and three sticks; of chewing gum. 1000 front-line troops eight days a "The ROK troops ar e really fond I month on an emergency basis, of the gum," saiU Lt, Col. William [said, ; " ' ' F.' Runge, Sanford, Fla., of the Korean military advisory group. he Runge is senior U. S. adviser to the South Korean army's quartermaster general. He helped develop the new field rations, based largely on. a study Of South Korean habits made some years ago by a Japanese scientist. The emergency rations, small in bulk,' were designed to be eaten uncooked and still be Usty and nutritious enough to give ROK soldiers the energy they need to fight. 'An individual ration, clad in waterproof plastic, weighs about 4 pounds and provides one soldier 3,210 calories a. day. Runge said about 600,000 packages a month will be ordered. "That gives enough to feed 75,- RUK 'troops behind, the- lines, who can cook food without danger,, will continue to get the usual ra- ; tion. - .' "Relatively, the ROK's have done as well or better than GI's in the matter of getting a balanced diet," said Runge.
