Two of those who have experienced the war directly are Seaman 1-C Larry J. Dixon of Osceola and Spec-4 Raymond E. Birmingham of Blytheville. Dixon* son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Dixon of 414 W. Reiser, Osceola, was cited for "distinguished performance of duty" recently by his commanding officer aboard the USS Oriskany, now patrolling off the coast of Viet Nam. Dixon is a crew member of a plane guard helicopter attached to the ship. His citation reads: "You displayed exceptional competence and bravery during the rescue of a downed pilot who had ejected from an A4 aircraft. Without hesitation and with complete disregard for your own tafety you entered the water In the midst of tangled shroud- lines and began freeing the pilot in the Navy.

American supermarkets snack bars and cafeterias have long been a prominent feature »f life Birmingham, son of Mrs. Irene Birmingham of 321 S. Lake, was wounded by an explosion of a 175 M.M. gun near Pleiku. Both of his'legs were broken. He was serving with the 6th Battalion, 14th Artillery at Plei- ku. . At the end of June, Birmingham was transferred from a Saigon hospital to an Army hospital . at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, where he is now recuper- in Paris. In many cases, they replaced famous restaurants cherished by generations of tourists. But who ever heard of a self- respecting Parisan eating his lunch in 45 minutes instead of thres hours? Well, believe it or not, some 35,<KK> French civil servants now eat their lunch in 45 minutes they can enjoy, of all things, a onger, American - style '"le weekend." This is only an experiment, Birmingham's injuries according to his mother, will necessitate a medical discharge from the army. Birmingham is a graduate of Blytheville High School and is married to the former Wanda Benson, daughter of George "When .the billowing para-1Mich, , Henson, now of StevensviUe, chute entangled the helicopter, you swam beneath the fuselage and removed the shroudlines that imperiled the safety of the aircraft.

I "Little V«nlM." so that with the time saved to be sure. According to Minister Louis Joxe it involves, se far, employes of the French ministries, the town h a 11 s of Paris' 20 districts and police historic expert- headuarters. But it is a ment nevertheless. I remember vividly the furor caused in Paris some years ago by the late Mrs. Franklin D. RooseveU when she said, in an unguarded moment, that the French spent too much time eating and drinking wine at lunch. France's intellectual elite was outraged. 'Are the vulgar Americans trying to teach civilized Frenchmen how to live?" they cried. 'Down with Yankee subversion," said the Communist news paper 1'Humanite. Mrs. Roosevelt, who meant no harm, was genuinely distressed. "Good heavens, I should have kept my mouth shut," she told me after a . stormy interview with French reporters. However; time marches on and with, it the insidious America influence. President De Gaulle's anti-Americanism, like Ms vision of France's grandeur, has but a dim future. But if the news from Paris is historic, the influence of American capitalism in Yugoslavia is positively stunning. President Tito's staid newspaper Po- Utika just printed a full - page advertisement that must have made Marx and Lenin turn in their graves. 'New in Yugoslavia!" the ad said. "It is a pleasure and a real joy — Pepsi-Cola refreshes drink called Pepsi-Cola." And not a word about slivovitz, Yugoslavia's traditional and famous alcoholic delight made of prunes. But Pepsi-Cola is not the only capitalist pleasure that Yugoslavs and tourists who flock to the Dalmatian coast can now enjoy. If they are alert, tlwy also may be able .to admire — in the flesh, no less — such famous western movie stars as Frank Sinatra, Sophia Loren, Doris Day and Gene Kelly. For these celebrities have been given |and by the Communist government free to charge to build private villas along the Dalmatian coast. In this case there were loud protests • by • die-hard Marxists. "Why should we allow the millionaire 'elite' of this globe to push our people from our coast" they asked indignantly. They were answered by Tito's leading economic journal. Eko- noms'ka Politika, which described the orthodox Marxist - Leninist grumblers as "ignorant people" who do not understand Hotels around la Loren's villa would almost overnight skyrocket in value. So would the beach es and shops. "Even private persons who live off tourism will profit," the journal said. How capitalistic can Communists be? Liberal Reds in Yugoslavia have even come to the conclusion that one should not include Marxist-Leninist ideology on restaurant menus. But their more conservative and orthodox comrades Insist that sli- vovilz is still 1 better and more proletarian than Pepsi-Cola. Thus far, nobody has as yet suggested that the two be mixed. But who said that American influence is declining?
