Blythevin* (Ark.) Courier News — Monday, November », 1967- Pag* Thrtt —by Abigail Van Buren What G/s Won* For Christmas DEAR ABBY: What do I want for Christmas? There are at least 100,000 South Vietnamese orphans who need help. Infant's wear, children's wear, toys, shoes. Anything. They are naked and hungry. Anyone desiring to send anything collected from friends and neighbors can address it to: Sgt. Bill Thompson, AF 10611072 CORDS - Refugees, Orphans APO, San Francisco, Cal. 96243 That's all I want for Christmas, Ahby and God bless you for asking. DEAR ABBY: What would we like for Christmas from you peoDle back home? A promise that you, too, will do your best to make this a better world. This will make the risks that we are taking worthwhile. WM. A. NEWMAN, Pfc, E3, JOHAftN HORVATH, Sp 4, E4, U. S. Army DEAR ABBY: Maybe I can be of some help by telling you what we don't want lor Christmas over here. Anything big, like Heavy appliances, books, or things that are hard to store. We don't have room for them. Nothing expensive that would break our hearts if we lost it, like expensive jewelry, cameras, record players, etc. No lima beans and ham, please. We get that in our C rations. Nothing in glass or aerosol cans. Unless chocolate is preperly wrapped, forget it. It's syrup by the time it gets here. You wouldn't believe the heat and humidity here. If anything it "SAM" under 5 pounds. It goes air mail and gets to us Those big packages (unless around on a dock for 3 months. A LEATHERNECK DEAR ABBY: The men in Viet Nam are always glad to get some little trinkets for Christmas that can be given to Vietnamese kids. Yo-yos, balloons, plastic harmonicas, whistles, and dolls. Asa a gag, we once gave an ugly doll with wild white hair to a child. It really was hideous, but it ended up being a "baby doll" for that little natvie girl who had never had a doll before. She thought It was beautiful. PARATROOPER, Viet Nam DEAR ABBY: Next to goodies, like canned meats, salami tuna, chicken, canned fruits, cookies, fruitcake, instant soups, Kool-aid, instant coffee, tea, and cocoa, pretzels, popcorn, hard candies, etc., something to read or do is best. A subscription to the hometown newspaper always makes a big hit. Also paper back magaines, playing cards and games like checkers, chess, jigsaw puzzles are great. Also, Abby, a real luxury is a clean pillowcase (we use our T-shirts), and a couple of pairs of heavy athletic sox. DOUG FROM DALLAS DEAR ABBY: Here is what the security guards of the 71st transport battalion want for Christmas: Sgt. Burge: To be alive for cext Christmas. Sgt. Author: To be home with my new car.
