MONDAY, JULY 19, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVE From Air South Viet Nam Lookf Like Cemetery By HAL BOYLE DA NANO, South Viet Nam 'AP» — Leaves from a war reporter's notebook: From the air South Viet Nam 'ooks in many places like a vast •v-metery. When you first fly over the ••ountryslcle. you notice what, at first look like bomb craters or >ld abandoned wells.' But no one could have' dropped that many bombs or abandoned that many wells. What you are seeing are the tombs of some of Asia's unnumbered dead. Tombs outnumber the rice paddles, where grow in vividi preen the white grains that feed' the country's living millions. The tombs cluster by the hundreds in every patch of sandy outworn soil. In smaller numbers, they also stud the fertile rice paddles, as If the clamorous dead were draining the sustenance of the living. Some*of the tombs are new and handsome In gold and blue colors. But most are gray and old and lichen-encrusted, and the dead within them as forgotten as the faded, fallen leaves of a flame tree. 'Happy Humphrey' Enjoys New Life After Losing 600 Pounds AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Happy Humphrey weighed 802 pounds three years ago, and he was so fat he had to sit up to sleep. Today, fresh from a dieting research program, he Is almost 600 pounds lighter and says the difference has changed his life. "For the first time In my life I can cross my legs," said Happy, crossing them. -'Look at this. ' "I can do things now that I 1 could never do before I oan hunt and fish and swim. And for the first time In 15 years J :an sleep lying down. I was so big that I used to have to sleep "It- ting at a 45-degree angle. "I can even wear store-bought clothes now," said Happy, | HOW!—Getting into the spirit of things at Saturday's gigantic parade that was held as part of the Hiawatha Festival are "Chief" Charles E. Gotta, left, of-the Hiawatha Committee, and Russell W. Glynn, manager of the ironwood Chamber of Commerce. Clad from head to toe In the garb of an Indian chief, Got- ta, standing firm'and erect, greets the huge throngs that lined the streets in typical Indian tradition, while Glynn appears to be getting carried away and jubilantly throws up both arms in a gesture of friendship and "peace." (Daily Globe Photo) * The poet Sara Teasdale wrote of "children's faces looking up, holding wonder like cup." It is the faces of Vietnamese children that give most encouragement to Americans here. They are so bright-eyed, enthusiastic, and eager to , accept change. n the eyes of the middle-aged and elderly, you are depressed to see sometimes a veiled animosity or at best a dull passivity. Often you have the feeling they don't really see you at all — they are either looking through you or around you, as if you were not there at all. But the children and the! youths see you. They are inter-1 ested In Americans and this Is cheering, even though you may have to face up to the fact that what they are looking for may more often be a cigarette than help to political freedom. The hardest thing for Americans to get used to over here is Vietnamese money. It is by far the shabbiest paper currency on earth, particularly in small denominations. The largest bill is the 500- piastre note. This is worth about $7, and they are invariably clean and crisp and neat. The average Vietnamese worker, who earns from less than 60 up to 85 piastres a day, rarely gets his hands on one. Iho 100- and 200-piastre notes rue usually in pretty good shape, too. The five, 10- and 20-piastre notes — and particularly the lives — are the financial language of the poor. The five- piastre note is so dirty, frayed, unsanitary and pawed over that you feel you may be contracting a nameless disease every time you accept one in change. 20,000 Tour Science Lab LOS ALAMOS, N.M (AP) — Spokesmen estimate 20,000 per- ions during the weekend toured The situation in South Viet Nam is bewildering in many ways to thousands of the American military men stationed here. The customs of the people are so different, the conduct of the war itself is so different, from anything they have known before. But there is also a great determination on the part of most to see this thing through. I think the best expression of both this bewilderment and determination that I have heard was made by -Capt. James W. Haerer, 33, a fighter pilot from Tampa, Fla. During a flight we made together on a supply plane to £ mountain fort, Haerer said: "You don't always know wha you're fighting over here — but you know it has to be fought." Training Has To Be Reduced HOUSTON, Tex. (AP)—Soipe training exercises for Gemini 5 astronauts have been junked be cause of a time shortage, i space official says. Patil Haney, Manned Space craft Center public affairs offi cer, said Sunday that astronaut L. Gordon Cooper Jr. and Charles Conrad Jr. do not have time enough left between now and the expected Aug. 19 launch date to complete a training schedule laid out for the 8-da flight. "We have had to cance planetarium star studies," said, "and several other exer cises." Practicing the proper escape methods from a dummy spacecraft submerged in watej are others that have been scrapped, sources say. Another casualty of the tinii shortage is Individual news in terviews with Cooper and Con rad. Haney said the interview instead would be with ,all news gathering agencies asking ques tions at the same time. USE DAILY GLOBE , WANT-ADS vi whose real name is William J. Cobb. The Atlanta Constitution told in a copyrighted story today how Cobb, 39, had suffered a heart attack In 1962 while wrestling under the name Happy Humphrey. A physician In his hometown, Macon, 3a., told him f.o reduce. Cobb managed to get his weight Sown to 844 pounds Defore becoming a volunteer patient m June, '.963, at the Medical College M 3eorgia's Clinical Investigation Unit. Dr Wayne V. Oreenberg was :onducting a research project to determine which diets are most effective and whether It is better to nibble all day or take your calories to one dose. Cobb lived at the hospital un- 'der precisely controlled conditions until last April, when his weight had dropped to 227 pounds. During his stay Cobb never ate less than 1,000 calories a day. He dieted hi 56-day cycles. For 28 days he was given three meals a day and a bedtime snack, with the same food served every meal. For the next 28 days he ate the same food but all at one meal. Three diets were alternated In cycles, one mostly fats, another mostly carbohydrates and the third predominately protein. Dr. Oreenberg said final data had not been compiled but the protein diet seemed most effective. While on that diet, Cobb ate ground beef twice a day. He weighs 230 pounds and says he can't recall not being fat. "When 1 was born, I weighed 18 pounds," said Cobb "Later I wore a bedsheet for a diaper. When I' was 12 years Old, 1 weighed 300 pounds. "Eating to me was like drinking Is to some people. I couldn't stop. My grocery bill ran from $25 to $30 a day. "I have eaten a 14-pound turkey with all the trimmings at one sitting," he said. "And 1 could put away 15 chickens at • time."
