This is "Our Livelihood Day" of the 12th annual Michigan Week. Livelihood Day Chairman Osmund Kelley of Flint says Michigan attracted international at- OCR ANCESTORS—By Quincy "That's right, I am a highwayman! Now give me one lor the road!" SHORT RIBS—By Frank O'Neal China Beach Is Coney Island Of War in South Viet Nam By HAL BOYLE CHINA BEACH, South Viet Nam (AP)—The Coney Island of the Vietnamese war is China Beach. It is here the troops come for a refreshing dip in the soft and sibilant surf of the South China Sea whenever they get a break in their battle duties. The atmosphere of the place is almost unbelievable. In a way it is better than Coney Island, because the water looks cleaner and you can walk for miles without stepping on an orange peel. China Beach is a long curve of hot sand dominated at one end by Monkey Mountain and at the other end by Marble Mountain. We own Monkey Mountain and atop it are the radar installations guarding the vast Da Nang tention days. even back in pioneer "The richness and diversity of this state's opportunities for gaming a livelihood have been j three years, Janet Wisber, four exceptional as far ^back ^as his-j years, Donna Duchan, four " '—"- " "-- years, Reta Alden, one year, Richard Allen, two years, Mark Whitley, one year, Stephen Richet t a, two years, and Char 1 e s Fairfield, one year. The boys and girls then went to the 4-H County Achievement Day held May 1 at the Ironwood Theatre. Judith McKenzie was tory goes, accounting for the fact that great nations fought for these peninsulas for centuries," said Kelly. Trying to retain world interest, the State Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring world trade seminars today in Saginaw, Muskegon and Flint. Major speakers will include busi- i chosen to model at the U. P. ness leaders who participated in i State Fair in Escanaba, and the recent 10-day business—hunting tour of Europe, "Operation Europe." Another similar seminar was I Mr. and Mrs. Henry Da'hl have airbase from which our planes roar off on missions. The area around Marble Mountain is off limits to the troops because of Viet Cong activity. I went to the beach on a recent Sunday with two veteran Air Force sergeant friends — John C. Golueke of Kansas City, Mo., and Jim Stroud of Doniphan, Mo. Both worked long hours and welcomed having an afternoon off. The beach has almost as many small kids on it as grains of sand, and if you are wise you pay them protection money. We paid one small one to guard our Jeep, and another one to watch over our clothes while we were in the water. Then we picked a partly shaded spot in front of the Rang- Dong bar, where you can buy native beer and sandwiches. There were hundreds of Americans and Vietnamese at the beach. Some of the Vietnamese wore white fedora-type bamboo hats, and had an oddly formal look as they bobbed up and down in the water. Trucks unloaded scores of Marines who had been on combat patrols in the heat-seared hills for days. They ran into the surf like crazed prospectors seeing a desert mirage. There also were a number of pretty local belles clad in skimpy bikinis. Whenever they entered the water they were soon surrounded by whooping Marines who showed off like small boys by splashing each other and standing on their hands. After a swim we stretched out in our chairs and as a warplane throbbed past in the peaceful sky, Jim said: "Everything about the war seems unrealistic. Take this place. The guerrillas' are close enough to lob an artillery shell on this beach if they wanted to — but they haven't." Some women and children peddlers surrounded us with bargains in withered pineapples and marble statues of Buddha. I forked over $1.50 for one of the Sandra Natzke and Richard Al- i Buddhas because he resembled new members—former Detroit Tiger outfielder Leon (Goose) Goslin, Hamtramck tennis, coach Mrs. Jean Hoxie, and the late George Lavigne—known as The Saginaw Kid—who was lightweight boxing champion from 1896 to 1899. Achievement Day Held At Marenisco School MARENISCO — The 4-H Achievement Day was held in the Marenisco High School Auditorium on April 28. Watersmeet and Marenisco combined their dress review with 90 boys and girls participating. N i us winners were chosen from each of the schools.

An old British joke tells of outing we gave a lift to Mike Insted of Rochester, N.Y., a young Air Policeman who acts as lifeguard. "There is a bad riptide here, but we haven't had a tingle drowning," he said. "i don't see how the men could take it out here except for the peer who dreamed he was i a chance to come to thlB beach delivering a speech in the House every week or so.
