MONDAY, JULY 12, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVE U.S. Is Building Chain of Bases In S. Viet Nam By HAL BOYLE CAM RANK BAY. South Viet Nam .(AP)-Thls little far off war is becoming bigger every! day. I One sign that the United! States is preparing for a long! campaign is the chain of bases' it is building along South Viet Nam's lengthy east joast. The bases range from Vung Tau, near Saigon, to Da Nany, 380 miles to the northeast. Such giant nests of power are not the product of an idle hour, nor are they stopgap improvisations. They take months to plan, months to complete. They take the work of hundreds of machines, thousands of men, and millions of pounds of fuel'and supplies. The latest of this chain of bases is at this deep water bay slightly more than a third of the distance from Saigon to Da Nang. It can harbor some of the world's largest ships. "it could become bigger than Saigon," said Lt. Samuel I. Eskenazi, 23, Seattle, Wash., platoon leader of an Army landing craft company. The pier has a 100-ton floating crane. Seven weather-yellowed French buildings house units of the Vietnamese junk navy. "Both the Japanese and the French recognized the strategic position of the port," said Capt. Lindbergh Jones, 37, Leesville, La. "The Japanese built fortifications and ammo dumps during the second World War, and this is one of the last places the French pulled out of after the battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954. "We're building standard port and depot facilities and cantonment areas for logistic troops and an Army airfield." , A look at the map shows why the base site attracted Army strategists. The peninsula dan gles in the sea like a wavy finger 22 miles southeast of Nha Trang, a popular coastal resort. Surrounded on three sides by water, its narrow neck could be easily defended in case of trouble in the midpart of the country. Equally well, it could serve as a major marshalling point by the U.S. Army in launching an attack in the central area. The Army is building a new 4,600-foot airstrip and lengthening a small one left by the French. In addition, if needed, there is plenty of room for another major airfield — if the U.S. Air Force finds it requires one here. SCENE FROM PLAY—Miss Earlene A. Bates of Sault Ste.

The Cedarville sank May 7 Co. and American Motors head the list of witnesses for a Senate hearing into automotive safety scheduled to start Tuesday in Washington. Sen. Abraham Ribicoff, D- Conn., heads the panel. Ribicoff, during a preliminary three-day hearing last March, charged that the auto industry was dragging its heels in the field of auto safety. He pointed to the increasing annual traffic death toll, which reached 47,000 last year. With the presidents of three companies and two top vice presidents of Chrysler Corp. heading for Washington, the auto industry apparently took the hearing seriously. There was no official indication of what the auto makers planned to tell the committee. But one company observer, who declined use of his name, said: I think the industry is going to make it plain to Congress and to everyone else that it is just as concerned as' anyone else with the number of highway deaths and accidents. "I think it will show that rather than dragging its feet, as Sen. Ribicoff implied, the industry actually is leading the way in automotive safety," he said. It was generally expected that the automotive witnesses would point to the millions of dollars spent, each year in the auto companies' own safety research centers, plus additional millions spent on various campuses in safety projects. The .General Services Administration (GSA) July 1 publicized a list of 17 safety devices which must be on all cars the the GSA have motorists as extra cost options. car.
