THURSDAY, MAY 13, 1965. IRONWOOD DAIIY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THMt Writer figures Out Why Viet War Is Different From Others By HAL BOYLE DA NANO. South Viet Nam (AP) — An open letter home: i Dear Frances and Tracy: j I kne v there was something strange about this war that made it different from other wars, and at last I have figured out what it is. So far nobody over here has asked me for chewing gum, chocolate or a bar of soap. That never happened to me in any previous war. It is almost • enough to make a fellow lose faith ir the American way. The kids here think chewing •gum is strictly for the troops. What they beg for — even those only 6 or 7 — is cigarettes. They are friendly and quite lovable except for a bad habit of trying to steal your wrist watch as you walk along. Vietnamese girls have the reputation ot being the fairest in the entire Orient. They are slender, delicate-featured, and as giaceful as little princesset in their bearing. Dressed in their native garb, they are as pretty as- walking flowers. So far I have not seen an enemy soldier, a distinction which I would just as soon keep 'for some time. My main battles have been with antique French plumbing and various forms of insect life that inhabit my hotel room but don't pay rent. When I try to turn on a water faucet, it comes off in my hands. When I try to take a shower, nothing comes out but a torrent of rust. And when I tried To the Voters of Gogebic County THANK YOU for your support at the polls Howard Brown (Paid political advt.) •«••«•» 4 « « «'« ••• The Friendly Store 40TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL! $419 Genuine THERMOS you time' payment for, $25 or more *r on to your account $2S'or tinorel Deluxe quart size — great for picnics, family outings!

As to the insects, I am j beginning to think I should have! studied entomology instead of, journalism. This morning I counted 87 assorted bites of all; kinds on me, and went out and bought a mosquito net. j The roo mboys then heir a i union meeting and decided that i putting it up was a two-day job I for three men. This was myi first experience with Oriental featherbedding. But the philosophy ir this area seems to be "anything worth doing today is even more worth doing the day after tomorrow." As I write you this, a bug about half the size of an ar-i mored carrier is crawling slow-j ly across the floor toward my! bed. I think he wants to take a siesta. I know I should put up a fight, but frankly I don't think this, beetle could be stopped with, anything smaller than a 50-caliber machine gun. So 'm going to abandon the field of battle temporarily until I can get some | outside help. For all know, this : bug could be i. Viet Cong in dis- | guise. He's certainly big enough. This is a war in which even a noncombatant feels he is a hero — merely in being here. With much love from your suffering, bug-bitten husband and father, Harold. P.S. send me a bug bomb. A big, big bug bomb. Then I can counterattack. The WORRY CLINIC By DR. GEORGE W CRANE Teen-agers, be sure to read Al's comment. As a radio executive, his words should bear double weight!

President Gamal Abdel Nasser of the United Arab Republic has called on all Arab states for a diplomatic break with Bonn once it goes through with its decision to establish relations with Israel. "I continue to hold the opinion that friendship with Germany must be maintained," Bourgui- ba told the Munich newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung in an interview published Sunday. er's knowledge of English words, yet they passed themselves off as experienced office secretar les>" JOB INSURANCE Probably the very best ONE YEAR of education you can obtain is in a first rate Business College. Even if you plan to become a teacher, preachei, lawyer, doctor or engineer, you will profit remarkably from first receiving a one-year or two-year diploma from a Business College. And I'm not joking, for I have had experience at various Liber office hostesses or airp lane stewardesses. After that diploma from a' Business College, you can land a good job at once. ; Then you can finance your la-' ter Liberal Arts education out of your own pay checks, as by' j working by day and taking half-' time courses in the Extension! University of your state. j Mrs. Crane took a one-y can diploma course in a Busi ness' College and she has been of far more value to me for the superb practical training she obta i n ed there, than from all her ot her courses at Northwestern Indiana i University and New York U n i- versity.
