.THURSDAY. JUNE 10. 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THREI Johnson Honors Young Scholars By G. K. HODENFIELD AP Education Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - A handwlmke, a smile and a medal from President Johnson in the historic East Room of the White House A buffet dinner on the South Lawn with Luci Baines Johnson as hostess. Heroes galore and entertainment under the soft, light of the moon. It added up to the biggest night ever in .the lives of 120 of the nation's br^u^est youngsters There was Nantelle Smith of Enterprise, Ala., first of the presidential scholars to cross the small stage to where the President stood. "I was so nervous 1 didn't ever know where I was going," she said later. But. she knew what she was going for—she clutched for dear life the box holding the medal. Jane Grayson was perhaps the most tired of the scholars. Jane was valedictorian of her graduating class at Mtami Beach (Pla.) Senior High Monday night. She caught a mid night flight to Washington, and founc 1 no time nor desire to sleep. "T'jis is all so wonderful," she said. "Just wonderful. I'll sleep some other time." The boy from the big city looked southward across the I South Lawn to where the Jefferson Memorial was bathed in a soft glow of light, whistled under hi5 breath and said, "Boy, this is the prettiest back vard I've ever seen." The youngsters were front and center in the East Room, where President Johnson told them, "The life of your land is it: good hands as its destiny passes, as it will, into your hands." Thei) parents — all of whom have today a new definition of the word proud — sat behind them Jammed around the walls stood, distinguished guests from all walks of life. The special heroes of the presidential scholars were two| young men close to their own age, All-America basketball star Bill Bradley of Princeton, and Don Schollander, four-time gold medalist on the 1964 U.S. Olympic swimming team. Bradley and Schollander, along with the President's daughter, Luci, appeared to have never a free moment. The Maoris inhabit New Zealand.

Artillery boomed in the distance. Warplanes roared off on missions perilous to many. At the edge of the great air base here, just outside the main security checkpoint, hundreds of men stood in sweating anxiety outside a large white-painted building. In the dense throng were airmen lust back from bombing and strafing North Viet Nam. There \vere dust-caked Marines, worn by days of patrol on mountaintop and across rice paddies. There also were clerks and bakers and mechanics and demolition men and beret-capped Army officers who had journeyed in from lonely outposts lor "the big operation." A murmur ran through heat- weary men: "What the hell is holding this thing up?" Inside the big building, Marine Lt. George F. Hoffman of Johnstown, Pa., was just as tense. He knew the beleaguring YESCHAK'S TOWER FAMOUS in WISCONSIN for FINE FOOD Serving Daily at Noon LUNCHEON BUFFET PRIME RIBS STEAKS DUCK SEAFOOD Reservations—Phone 588-4111 or 588-9161 LAC du FLAMBEAU South on 51-47 ft D i force outside couldn't be held at' bay much longer. \ He gave a final inspection toi his 60 Vietnamese and Ameri-j can assistants He looked at his ; watch. It was 11 o'clock—zero I hour. ! "All right, let 'em in," said; Hoffman. The doors swung open—and the great breakthrough was under way The long-awaited opening of the Navy Post Exchange at Da! Nang had taken place. Troops! grabbed up shopping baskets; and rushed pell-mell from counter to counter, buying every-1 thing'!hey saw. it was like the opening of a huge supermarket back home, only bigger. It was payday for most of the men, and they were as eager to spend their money. The 70 cases of beer in stock 1 were gone in five minutes. Some '2,000 cases of soda and soft ! drinks went quickly, too. ! Lucky first comers staggered I out of the $100.000 warehouse burdened with cameras, watches, tape recorders, deodorants, j film packs, clothing, and $28.15! portable refrigerators and small j electric fans. i Scores of Marines and airmen, unable to enter the packed building, left after long waiting. When the doors finally closed, some 7,000 men had spent $31,000. "Soon we'll have a million- dollar-a-month operation here," said Lt. Hoffman, who also will open five field post exchanges in the five northern provinces that make up the 1st Corps area in South Viet Nam. Like any good businessman, the lieutenant believes in expanding in prosperous times. The indications are that Uncle Sam's nephews in uniform will be spending more rather than less money here in the future. Telephone Company's Loan Is Approved LANSING (AP) — A $250,000 borrowing by Wolverine Telephone Co., for expansion and improvement of services,' has been approved by the Public Service Commission.
