MONDAY, JUNE 7, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN 1HREI Marine Commander Would Not Trade Post for Any Other Job By HAL BOYLE A RICE PADDY IN VIET NAM (AP) — It is said that in wartime there Is no higher glory or greater reward than being commander of a company of troops. For a company is large enough to be important in battle but a kingdom small enough for the commander to know all his men personally. That is the way Capt Pat Collins, leader of recon Company D of the 3rd U.S. Marines, feels about his post. He wouldn't trade it right now for any other job on earth. He talked of it as he lay stretched out under a tent in a dried up rice paddy, loud with insect song. The heat came down tn an endless hammer of glare. Red and gold butterflies shimmered and skittered past and It was hard to think the enemy was only a couple of hills away. Chewing on a stem of grass, Pat remarked: "Once you put the average Marine out In the field his overall outlook on life generally improves. He has a sense of achievement. He feels he is doing what he ought to be doing." 'You don't join the Marines If you are looking for a soft, cushy life." Pat has put In 13 years After serving as a corporal in Korea, he quit to get a degree in in- d u s t r i a 1 management, from Bowling Green 'Ohio) State University. But he returned to the corps in 1958. Since then he has attended nine Marine, Army and Navy schools. He has won two medals' for bravery, served in Cuba, made 100 parachute jumps and qualified as a demolition expert. "I'm lucky in the men I have" he said. "They like the excitement of running around the countryside and shooting up the enemy. "They're young and eager. They figure the government sent here to do a job, and they get it done." tourist Group Asks for Funds MARQUETTE — As in p a s t ears, the Upper Michigan Tour- SCHOLARSII1P — Douglas F.

"I think some people back home make themselves unhappy by being materialistic and selfish. "I'm happy trying to do a job. It isn't really hard on us out here. I like it. The ones it is hard on are the wives."

"Whenever we lack money to replenish our supply of literature or when funds for] postage are not available, a backlog of inquiries is created and the flow of information to potential visitors is interrupted. "This is not good business practice. We need additional support from owners and operators of U. P. business estab lishments. Unless such support is made available when it's needed most, we're unable to ship out literature in time to be of benefit to people.planning ,heir vacations." Dorman suggested that retail! ousinessmen especially should be interested in helping the tourist association answer campground inquiries, "since they are the ones who benefit most from the income received from families coming into the Peninsula to use our abundant camping facilities " He noted, 'too, that the demand for tourist literature was greater this year than ever before.
