THURSDAY, JULY 15, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVE Pilot Becomes Aerial Cowboy In Viet Nam By HAL BOYLE DA NANG, South Viet Nam tAP) - Lt. Col. George F. Bu- .nan In nearly 5,000 hours aloft in three wars had never served MS an aerial cowboy before '• But a'QMir the South Vietnam-1 '.'•e baUlefront trip otie thing youj Jiui fxpect is the unexpectea' j "Yon have to be ready to try iny'ibinf," said Bauman, 44, • •vho wss raised on an apple •anch at Sonera, CiVlif. HJs first 3xperii>iu'e as a flying herdsman carre recently In an action i by U.S Marines probing out! from the air base at Chu Lai, 52 miles south of here. His co-pilot was Lt, George Dechant, 29, of Palmyra, Pa. 'We were supporting a strike force of our troops that had been brought up by helicopter," said Mie lanky, 6-foot-4 colonel. He looks and talks like the late Gary Cooper and commands the only Marine squadron of armed "Hueys" HU1B helicopters—in the country. "We got two suspects cornered on a path leading to a river We circled around and around them," Bauman said. "One managed to hide, but the other started to try to swim the river. "We fired a few rounds to force him to turn back, and he did. As he left the water, his black pants fell off, but he kept running. > "It's the first time we had ever acted as cowboys to roundup the Viet Cong. I had never herded them before. "We cornered him again in some rocks and trees. I landed near him to point out his position ;o our ground troops. 'It had been funny up to then, but It ended tragically for him He ran ou' into the water again Our t~oops called on him to halt, but he wouldn't, and they fired. He died "Eventually we rounden up four or five others hidden in tho same area " As a Corsair fighter pilot in World War n Bauman flew more than 100 missions and won the Distinguished Plying Cross at PelcJlu. In a year in Korea as a transport helicopter pilot he added more clusters to his Air Medal than he can.remember offhand. Here he has flown 8 missions in two months in the most dangerous type of flying. Four of his six armed Hueys have been hit several times, and one pilot and a crewman have been wounded. The colonel is worshipped by his men. One of them said, "any of us would fly through a needle stuck up in the middle of hell — if he told us to do it." Above the entrance to the squadron's operation tent is posted this sign: "When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death, this is heroism." That is the slogan of "Bau man's Raiders." The National Whirligig <Re!«a«cd b» MoClur* Newspaper Synrtloctei By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — I have just checked, and it's perfectly safe for our top government officials to have their heads examined. An expensive psychiatrist here says they'd probably turn out to be just as human as people. This research was prompt e d by some communications from readers who suggested that everybody in the Federal government — from President Johnson on down— should have s psychiatric examination because they're always spending the taxpayers' money like water— or champagne. But my Dr. X nas come up with a vote of confidence for our governmental lords and masters. He says he wouldn't "presume" to comment on President Johnson's m e ntal makeup, but adds he is sure he wouldn't run up against a single nut among Cabinet officers and members of Congress ft ft ft PECULIARITIES FORGIVEN —That, said Dr. X, doesn't go for peculiarities. He would expect to find as many of those in government bigwigs as he would in anybody else. But generally speaking he'd consider it a pleasure to peek into the noodles of our Congressmen. Ca b i n e t members and other brass. Congressmen especially would be delightful patients, said the doctor—because they talk so much. A psychiatrist loves a garrulous patient because it's his best way of getting a line on what makes the guy tick. And Who ever heard of a taciturn Congressman? it tt tt EXTROVERTS -As a matter of fact, the average Congressman's loquaciousness is all in his favor, according to Dr. X. It proves, he says, that they aren't afraid of being with people, that they aren't always yearning to go hide in a cave or under the backstairs. Dr. X says he wishes all his patients would talk as much. Well, maybe not 1HAT much. The doctor said no, he wouldn't ask Congressmen or other public officials any souped-up questions—just the usual stuff. At the outset for example, Senator.A or Rep. B would have to prove that he knew who he was Nc trouble there, says the doc. Then would come such other routine ques tions as "Where are you?" "What's the date?" 'Whom are you talking to?" BUILT-IN THREE-HOUR AN- SWER—One of the most irhpor- tant questions would be-what-the patient thought of himself. Three hours later, when the Seriat o.r had stopped talking, the doctor would go on to questions about whether he ever heard voices— besides his own, that is—or saw things or smelled things. All'this time, the doctor would be trying to find out whethei the patient was elated or depress e.d Naturally, his conclusions-would take into consideration whether the patient was a Great Society man or one of the economy bloc boys. Likewise, Dt X would expect the Republicans to be-a little less jubilant than 'the Democrats. But all in all, Dr. X said -there isn't anything to worry 4bout. After all. he noted, some years back Congress let a fa*'mou3 anthropologist measure its individual heads and the scientist's report was most encouraging. He said they were real nice heads.
