TEN IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 1965. •-M Nuoc Mam Stirs Apprehension in Most Americans By HAL BOYLE DA NANG, South Viet Nam (AP) — Leaves from a war reporter's notebook: There are four words here that stir apprehension in .the average American. Two are "Viet Cong." The other two are "nuoc mam." There are some who say they'd rather face the Viet Cong for a week than spend an hour In the presence of nuoc mam. Nuoc mam isn't the name of an enemy organization. Aside from rice, it te the most highly prized item in the Vietnamese diet. A pungent sauce eaten at most meals, nuoc mam is made by pressing alternate layers of fish and salt that have been left standing for a period of weeks or months. What drips through, friends, is an oily, odoriferous mixture that assaults the nose. There are three squeezings of nuoc mam, but the first squeezing is most highly prized. Heaven help the man who gets the third. The Vietnamese douses it liberally on rice, meat, fish, poultry and most vegetables After considerable urging, and some trepidation, I sampled it at a Vietnamese dinner recently and wound up eating a saucer of it. It is quite flavorful, but like olives or raw oysters it's an acquired taste. You don't notice the odor yourself. But after I returned to the press camp, my friends insisted I stand downwind from them for the rest of the evening. Most Vietnamese eat fairly well. They consume only about two-thirds as much daily as Americans, but they are only about two-thirds as large. Their diet is somewhat deficient in proteins and vitamins, particularly among the poorer classes. They rarely get beef, and when they do it often comes from an elderly water buffalo who spent the best years of his life stolidly plowing the paddies. Incidentally, you may have heard much of the ability of Oriental soldiers to perform miracle feats of military endurance while fueled by only a handful or two of plain boiled rice. To Maj. Richard Allen Jr., Miami, Fla., a veteran U.S. Army Special Forces officer, this Is largely myth. "There is no doubt they can do a lot on little," he said. "But they don't get by on just rice and salt. "Only about 55 per cent of their diet is rice. The remainder consists of about 15 per cent fish, poultry or meat, and 30 per cent vegetables, such as potatoes, cabbage, turnips, cucumbers, peas and beans." $7,330 Found In Two Boxes MANSFIELD, Pa (AP) — Mrs. Florence Vendui. Kensington, Conn., was riding along U.S. 6 this week wrier she noticed two boxes falling out of a car ahead of her. She picked up the boxes and found $1,330 in cash and checks. Police traced the money to the Corey Creek Country Club. Jack Marsh, club secretary treasurer, confirmed that • the money fell from his car while he was on his way to a bank. He said it was all there and gave Mrs. Vendur a substantial reward. A BRIGHT REMINDER—Evening visitors to the Alamo in San Antonio will find the famed "Shrine of Texas Liberty" lighted brightly by a new system donated by General Electric and installed by the city in co-op- eration with the Daughters of the Republic or Texas. Lighting is on from dusk to 11 p.m. It serves as a bright reminder that much of" the freedom we enjoy today was earned at. this spot.

Timely Quotes If we now ignore the plight of those unborn generations which, because of our unreadiness to take corrective action in controlling population growth, will be denied any expectations beyond abject poverty and suffering, then history will rightly condemn us. —Former President Eisenhower, on birth control. You say "He" in referring to God. Why not "She"? —Dr. Barbara Moore, English long-distance walker, in a philosophy discussion in Albuquerque, N.M. Fair Has One Of Best Days NEW YORK (AP) — The New York World's Fair recorded one of its biggest days Monday with 169,227 paid visitors, fair officials said.

Daily Globe classified get -«suJt» 'Airmobile' Unit Studied by Army WASHINGTON (AP) — The lArmy is studying whether one I more division should be converted into a helicopter-borne outfit designed for swift thrusts, particularly in a country like South Viet Nam. ! The study is under way less ithan a month after Secretary of 1 Defense Robert S. McNamara • authorized the formation of the i first such division, called "air! mobile." i The 1st Cavalry Division (Air! mobile) came into being formally on July 1 at Ft. Banning, Ga. No final decision has been made' on whether to send it to South Viet Nam later on. sources said. The airmobile division is made up of about 15,800 men. It has both regular infantry and paratrooper brigades. ; After being carried close to the combat zone by Air Force' transports, the airmobile soldiers would mount up in their 428 helicopters and ride to the battle. i The Army is due to come in ; with its recommendations involving a possible second airmobile division in time for drafting the next defense budget late this year. It is not known yet whether another infantry division or one of the two wholly paratrooper divisions would be converted. The Army now has 16 divisions. In addition tfo the new 1st Cavalry Division Airmobile and the two airborne outfits, they break down into eight infantry divisions, one mechanized infantry division and four armored divisions. The Defense Department has said the airmobile division was adopted "because of its special capabilities which are not found in the other divisions." The airmobile unit, the Pentagon said, "will make its greatest contribution to improved combat effectiveness in operations where terrain obstacles and underdeveloped communications networks could give enemy guerrillas or light infantry forces an advantage over our standard formations."

Some troops, like some people at home, aren't quite sure just why we are over here It has been explained officially, of course, again and again that Americans are here at the invitation of the South Vietnamese government to help the people In their quest for political freedom from the North. But the most eloquent statement of our purpose here was made by a young U.S Army lieutenant. "What we are doing here is nation building," he said. "Until the country is raised to a 20th century level, this war won't be over. It may take 10 or 15 years. "They're growing very fast economically and technologically. But their thinking isn't growing that fast. That's why it will take so long." Sidnaw Personals Randolph Wakeford and Douglas Stebbins left recently for Alaska where they will be employed.
