TWEtVi 1RONWOOD OAHY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, MAY 27,1965. Former Wet Nam President's Hideaway Now Training Camp By HAL BOYLE KHAM DUG, Viet Nam (AP) — Men in power often like to have a hideaway from the world where, in a proper setting, they can brood on their greatness. The late President Ngo Dinh Diem of South Viet ""NanT had plans for a summer palace here 43 miles southwest of Da Nang. A site was cleared atop one of the peaks that tower up to 6,000 feet in wild and lonely green beauty. As there are no good roads, everything had to be flown in. At a cost of $4 million to $5 million, an airstrip was built on a 1,600-foot-high plateau. Construction was begun on the foundations for the palace. Then Diem was killed during a political coup, and his unfinished palace hideaway now stands as a mute memorial to his vanished dream. On the plateau now is a train- Ing camp for civilian irregular defense groups, quasi-soldier volunteers whose job is to protect isolated villages from Viet Cong raids. "We've got a pretty good setup here," said 1st Lt. Niel Davidson, 24, Chicago, member of a small U.S. Army Special Forces team which helps train the Vietnamese and Montan- gard tribesmen volunteers. "It's pretty much like garrison life anywhere except when we go out on operations against the Viet Cong. But I'll say one thing — these are the most miserable mountains and Godawful jungles anyone on a patrol ever saw." Davidson could be forgiven a bit of homesickness. He was married only three months ago, and a month later had to leave his bride to come to this isolated outpost in a strange land. To an outsider these lonely circles of security in an enemy sea seem terribly vulnerable to mass attacks. The airstrips are their only lifeline to the outside world. "We could be overrun," acknowledged the unworried lieutenant, "but they'd have to spend an awful lot of people to do it — more people than they can afford. "After all, this place is pretty well defended with prepared positions, concrete bunkers and miles of barbed wire and mine fields." Aside from the guerrillas, the mountains and plateaus abound in many forms of wild game, including elephants and tigers. None of the Americans here has had a chance to go hunting of them, however. Kiwanis Club Gives $10,000 for Library CHARLEVOIX (AP)—A $10,000 appropriation from its youth fund has been approved by the local Kiwanis Club for construction of a proposed new Charlevoix public library. Federal funds are being sought on a matching basis to underwrite the estimated $60,000 cost of the structure. for folio forties and Cook-Outs FINER f fl IRUJfl Y FOODS We Reserve the Right to Limit Quantities Swift's Premium Swift's Premium Pro-Ten CHUCK ggc Fresh Ground Beef .... 2 Ibs. 89c ROAST Swift's Premium Pro-Ten CHUCK STEAK Real Tender -Best for Charcoaling Heinz Ketchup Big Family Size Bottle FAIRWAY Salad Dressing..
