Park's New South Boundary Road to Be Completed Soon Boyle Writes About Viet Nam People, Political Situation By HAL BOYLE DA NANO, South Viet Nam (AP) — An open letter home: Dear Frances and Tracy, Well, sweet ducks, I hope you are not spending the old man into bankruptcy while I'm away and too sentimental to cut off your credit. Spend less, live more . , • •. You may be wondering what is going on over here. So do I. When I was here 48 hours. I thought I knew for sure what the truth was here. Now that I have been here toward 48 days, I'm not so sure what is untrue. Pernaps that is a growth toward education and is typical In any case, I would like to find out and will continue to seek to learn what I can know. Whac it seems to me that we are doing is pouring out billions of American dollars and the earnestness of, eventually, perhaps hundreds of thousands of well-trained American soldiers on the doubtful hinge of victory. Tht hinge, I suspect, is whether we stay in the spending area Ion,? enough to create a middle class. Can our dollars and our soldiers and our dreams make ment attentive to the people's permanence here? And that hinge, of course, is whether the Vietnamese can among themselves create a sta ble government that is able to achieve and reflect their national glory — and not resent our help too much. Weil, enough of politics. I suppose you may be more interested in personal things. There is great dignity and sweetness among these people in trte midst of the dire and perilous lives they live. They have time tor kindness If you have, and sometimes if you haven't. They respond immediately to a courtesy, a kindness, a smile and a help.

The wondrous beauty of t h e Porcupine Mountains will u n fold this summer for all motorists who seek new adventure. A new road is nearly ready through this area, with c o m - pletion date set for around June 15. In the past, the rugged beauty of the Porkies was seen ta y only a hardy few who braved the wilderness on foot while motorists had to be content to gaze from afar, said Jerry E. Fisher, Automobile Club of Michigan touring manager. The last portion of the new road to be completed was a section from M-107 south to Nonesuch Mine. The new road will let tourists drive the full east-west span of the 58,000 acres which hug the Lake Superior shore in the far northwestern portion of the Upper Peninsula. The park area, which covers approximately 25 miles, is 1 n Ontonagon County. Generally, the road keeps well away from the primitive heart of the park, but it does take the motorist along its edge and at two points, via short spur roads, even inside that edge, Fisher pointed out. One spur leads to a magnificent lookout point, the other puts the visitor almost on the banks of a sparkling, rock-strewn stream hurrying down to Lake Superior. Superlative scenery and a true sample of Porcupines country mark every mile of the way. The road opens a new world of opportunity for campers and hikers. Likewise for the fisherman. Hitherto remote trout waters are brought within hop- skip-jump distance from the j car. • ! South Boundary Road p r o vides a straight shot from the southeastern corner of the park to the Presque Isle River on the far western end. Here, after a series of falls, the river plunges into the largest of the Great Lakes. Until construction of the road, the only way a visitor in the eastern segment of the park could reach the falls was over a roundabout route of 50 miles- from Silver City on Lake Superior south to Bergland on M-64, west-southwest to Wakefield on M--28, then north again about 10 miles on a county road from Wakefield. The new road cuts into.-;the Wakefield-Presque Isle Ontonagon Road Project Slated LANSING — Bids on only four of nine Upper Peninsula projects originally s c h e- duled for opening will be ac - cepteti at the Michigan S t ate Highway Department office in Escanaba on Wednesday, June 9.

Monsma, assistant professor of speech and NMU director of fbr- ensics. NMU students competed in 130 judged events against some 125 colleges and universities as compared with 100 even t s against 65 institutions in 1963-64; 88 events against 60 opponents in 1962-63; and 74 events against 55 opponents in 1961-62. Part of Bill Authorizes Regional Units WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. jGaylord Nelson, D-Wis., pre- j diets a regional commission to "help revitalize the economy of the upper Great takes will be created within six months." He linked his statement Tuesday to Senate passage of the Public Works and Economic Development Bill, which contains language authorizing such regional commissions. Nelson said he was certain thel provision would win House approval. The upper Great Lakes region embraces 81 counties in northern Wisconsin, norther Minnesota and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. "Establishment of an action planning commission for the upper Great Lakes will open the way for long-range planning to solve economic problems of the area which are too large or difficult to be dealt with on. a local basis," Nelson said. .'.'"" > Economic Development Conference to Open ESCANABA (AP)—Economic development of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and northern Wisconsin and Minnesota will be discussed the reason for the increase this year, Monsma said.
