MONDAY, MAV 17,1965. IRONWOOD OAIIV GIOBE, tRONWOOD, MICHIGAN land Is Needed For Recreation, Forester Says MADISON — In a speech delivered here before the Wisconsin Governor's Conference on Forestry and Forest Recreation Land Use, George S. Jam e s, regional forester for the North Central Region of the Forest] Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture, spoke out on the need of acquiring more publ i c lands for recreation. Referring to the two National Forests in Wisconsin, James said, "The Chequamegon and the Nicolet represent a vast vacationland for thousands of people who look forward to a few days of pleasure in the o u t- doors." He then pointed out that despite an expanding populat i o n and concurrent demand for more outdoor recreational opportunities, "only 417 acres have been purchased on the two National Forests in the last 10 years." And yet, he stated, south of these forests is one of the most concentrated areas of population in the United States. Collections from the new annual S7 federal recreation-conservation stickers for visit o r s who use improved camp ing and related outdoor facilit i e s , with other sources of reven u e such as sales of surplus fede r a 1 lands, and the motor-boat fuel tax, will go into the Land and Water Conservation .Fund, to develop, said James, "new outdoor recreation areas, and to purchase additional federal recreation areas." He did not overlook that "there are powerful fore e s which disagree with certain phases of this program, particularly the public land-acquisition aspects." As a public land manag e r , James expressed his determination to do all that he can to enhance recreational opportunitie for all the people. He ur g e d those attending the Conferen c e to keep themselves well informed on all the issues involved. The regional forester complimented Governor Knowles for calling the conference. "It is Indeed timely and appropriate, he said. "We are proud of Wisconsin and her results over the decades." He touched on other aspects of forestry in the North Centra Region, emphasizing that in the upper Great Lakes the Tri-State Citizens Committee, headed by Harvey Wolter of Eagle River Is "seeking additional ways to help the economic and socia: well being of the 81 counties in volved." Of Wisconsin's Senator G a y- lo.d Nelson, lie remarked on his " n-ofouncl leadership in encour- a~'ng state and federal cooperative assist? nee." James quoted from a speech of the late President Kennedy delivered at the Land and People Conference at Duluth, in September 1963, in which, referring to the Northern Great Lakes Region, President Kennedy called this "an era in which the nation's growing population looks to this region more and more as a major recreation area. . ."

About 15 years ago vacuum tubes served as memory units in computers. Then came transistors. Now microscopic electrical circuits printed on tiny •hip* of silicon do the job. Lorna's case is typical of thousands of women who patronize taverns or cocktail lounges, unattended by men. And it isn't loneliness that explains their act! o n s, though they usually try to use that as an excuse. So scrapbook this case and its follow-up tomorrow. CASE V-491: Lorna S., aged 29, is a problem wife. "Dr. Crane," her husband began dolefully, "my wife is an alcoholic. "As a traveling salesman, I am away from home most of the week. So she goes to a nearby tavern almost every afternoon. "I had her hospitalized when she began to get drunk too often, hoping she could get cured. "For she says she really wants help. But within a week after she got home from the hospital, she started visiting the taverns again. "What is wrong with my wife?" RED HERRING ALCOHOL Alcohol is often used as a "red herring" to cover up unsolved conflicts deep within the victim's personality. Why should Lorna seek a tavern every afternoon? "Dr. Crane," you might retort, "maybe she just gets lonesome at home since her husband is gone much of the time." Well, that is a plausible reply except for the fact that millions of other wives who are equally alone during the day, don't frequent taverns. So there must be another-reason for Lornas drinking. When unattached women invade a tavern or even a ritzy cocktail lounge they are looking for some man to make a "pass" at them! Oh, they will rise up in furious protest! Many such wives may attack me today for exposing their subconscious Intentions. If such women were sim ply lonely, they could go to a sand- wich counter and sip coffee, for they'd be surrounded by oth e r human beings just as much as in a tavern. So their loneliness is not the real answer, nor is it merely a wish for companionship! No, they crave something else. They are secretly hungry for some evidence that they are still attractive enough to catch the fancy of men. But their conscience would bother them if they tried to two-time their mate with nothing buy coffee in their tummy. For coffee does not anesthetize the brain temporarily like liquor, so it is not an alibi for future inllicit action. Women who frequent taverns unattached thus want men to make passes at them and they meanwhile desire an excuse to soothe their own conscience in case they succumb to such illicit romancing. For mankind has develo p e d ihe lalse not'"on f.hat if a person is intoxicated, even half way, that very fact excuses his auto accidents or moral lapses in hotel rooms. So women like Lorna can't face their conscience if they enter an illicit romance while sober. Hence, the need for whiskey to serve as a "cover-up" for clandestine eroticism. And if any of you wives think I am shooting far off the mark, just read tomorrow's follow-up of Lorna's problem, for it Is typical. Meanwhile, you husbands better send for the booklet "Sex Problems in Marriage," enclosing a long stamped, return envelope, plus 20 cents, for it will stop Lorna's secret urge for illicit romance. Wives are not very erotic until they get scared lest they are on the shelf and the age of 29 is women's first terrifying birthday. For then they think they will be "on the shelf" within one short year!.

How- ion, commander of the 311th Air Commando Squadron, and one of the most colorful fliers on the battlefront here. This is the third war for the 47-year-old, leathery-faced officer who comes from Birmingham, Ala., and has three :hildren. Still a "gung ho" airman at an age when many of his contemporaries are flight - borne only in swivel chairs. Harry's decorations Include 11 Oak Leaf Clusters tc his Air Medal. He has been checked out In more than 100 types of aircraft. Farm Field Work Is Late LANSING (AP) — Field work in Michigan is 10 days to two weeks late, reports the Federal- State Crop Reporting Service. Cold weather retarded hay and pasture • growth. Feed supplies from early pastures were limited and some farmers had to buy hay. Pasture conditions were below last year at this time. Cool temperatures also retarded bud development on fruit trees but blossoming in the fruit areas now is well along. The May 31.3 million bushels, down 20 per cent from last year. Hay stocks on Michigan farms as of May 1 were down nine per cent from average. Maple syrup production this year was 54,000 gallons, 44 per cent below the previous year. Milk production in April was down two per cent from last year but still seven per cent above average. The St. Croix River, convenient to Minneapolis and St. Paul is the last large clean river near a major meropolitan area in the Midwest. 'Harry the Horse' How ton, 47, Delivers Goods in Viet Nam dockland Personals Miss Marta Sheveland has returned home from the Ontonagon Memorial Hospital. A-2c Wayne Peters of the K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base, Marquette, visited his brother in law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Merrill Preiss. Mrs. Herbert Fredrikson was a patient at the Ontonagon Memorial Hospital for a few days. Mr. and Mrs. William Frisk, son, Stephen, and daug h t e r, Sandra, Chicago, visited his brother and sister in law, Mr. and Mrs. Onni Frisk.

Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Lantry have returned to their home in Ottawa, Canada, after visiting his brother in law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Onni Frisk, anc other relatives. Mrs. Kenneth Fredrikson was a surgical patient at the Ontonagon Memorial Hospital. USE DAILY GLOBE WANT-ADS He flew 48 combat missions la the Far East during World War n and 58 in Korea in 1950. Since loming out here last October h« has been on 380 missions. He Is called "Harry the Horse" because he and his men are literally the aerial Workhorses of the war. Their steeds are big two-en- gined Cl23s which lumber through the skies at 150 knots like huge noisy flying factories. The planes can land and taks off on a 1,400-foot runway or less and carry about twice the load of the old C47s, the workhorse of World War n. The 311th Air Commando Squadron is one of four of its type in this area. It has 17 planes, of which about 14 usually are operational at any ona time. It has many missions. It carries the mail, evacuates wounded, injured or ailing Americans to the U.S. Army 8th Field Hospital at Nha Trang. At night a crew may be called out to drop flares to pinpoint the position of enemy Viet Cong making a nocturnal assault. But their main job is to serve as a lifeline to Vietnamese and U.S. special forces units in isolated mountain bastions between here and the Laotian border. Troops and supplies of all kinds are either landed at small perilous strips near the outposts or dropped by parachutes. "We'll carry or drop anything that fits into the plane," Howton said. The work is difficult and dangerous taut rarely monotonous. The four-man crews wear flak outfits, but their thin aircraft are frequently ventilated by guerrilla ground fire. "About 10 to 15 airplanes get hit a month, and a number of our men have been wounded, but we've never had a fatality from enemy fire," said Howton. The pilots fly as many as 10 combat sorties a day. "Harry the Horse" often does, too. Despite his executive duties, in a recent 20-day period he flew 105 missions. IS YOUR COAL BIN EMPTY?

And that means increased needs for telephone service-today and in the years to come. More and better telephone service to meet these growing needs requires additional telephone cable and lots of new telephone equipment. The equipment has to be housed. This sometimes means new buildings and building additions. In the next three years, Michigan Bell plans to spend over $300 million to keep up with the demands of Michigan's increasing business, industry and population.
