TEN IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, JUNE 17, 1963. McDivitt 'Finally Is Stymied By Situation in Home Town By PHIL BROWN Associated Press Writer JACKSON (AP)—Space pilot James A McDivitt, who cooiy and calmly handled a Dlastoff, a re-'ehlry and the events of four days in space, finally was stymied by a situation in his home town Wednesday "What do you say wnen you receive a gold windshield wiper?" he asked a luncheon crowl of 1,500. Residents ,in Jaqkson.had been listening closely when, during astronaut Edward White's walk in space, McDivitt jokingly told my him: "You smeared up windshield, .you dirty dog " John Elwood, chairman of the gigantic • • parade which welcomed the astronauts home presented him with the wiper to solve any such problems in the future. McDivitt recovered quickly, and remarked: "If I just had another spacecraft to use it on. . ." He added: "I'm probably one of the few. people in the world ever to get a gold windshield wiper for his anniversary." McDivitt. and his wife, Pat, celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary Wednesday and ail along the parade route. Jined by an estimated 125,000 persons, there were signs wishing them a happy anniversary At the luncheon was an anniversary cake presented by the inmates of nearby Southern Michigan Prison--" Probably the only time a cake ever came out of a prison," said Bob Lees, luncheon moderator. "I don't suppose they're here today," the astronaut joked as he and his wife offered their thanks. The luncheon was part of three days of tumultuous receptions — in Chicago. Ann Arbor and Jackson.

McDivitt, who at 36 looks young enough and collegiate t .eifough to be a June graduate,' was back in cap and gown Wednesday to address commencement exercises at Jackson Junior College from which he was graduated '.n 1950. The space pilot never was at a loss for appropriate words— for the welcoming crowds, for the luncheons and. receptions, and for newsmen who popped questions at him "whenever they had an opportunity. "We got in good shape for the flight, and it's paid off for the : parade," he quipped. But McDivitt had to admit that he was .wearing out somewhat. He said prospects of getting a vacation soon appear good, with the possibility that some of his off-time might be spent in Jackson with his family Looking a little farther ahead, the space pilot has his eyes set on the moon. "Just because I've done it once, I don't intend to stop," he told a luncheon audience in Jackson after narrating movies of his explorations in space.

He Nad planned to spend it in town seeing the sights. But it was 11 a.m. when Sgt. Daniel F. Hall, 22, of Potts- own, Pa., returned from a six- day patrol to the tent area of Able Company, 3rd Regiment, U.S. Marines. By the time he had showered, shaved, put on his summer khakis, and hitched a ride, it was after 2 p.m. Since he had to start back by 7 o'clock, his day of, liberty had dwindled to only ive hours. That was more than enough or the tall, hazel-eyed young sergeant, who is third in command of his rifle platoon. "I thought it would do me jood to get into town and have a change of scenery," said Hall, whose cheekbones have been burned cherry red by the dozen or more patrols he has been on since he came here March 10. Sipping a cup of coffee at the USD building here, Hall told of his big day off from the war: "I've spent most of it trying ;o find some milk or ice cream. No luck. When I get home the irst thing I'm going to do is to go to a supermarket and buy a gallon of milk. That's what I niss. 'I walked around the streets ooking for something to buy. I bought a tin trunk for $3. I wanted to get something nice as souvenirs for my wife, Suzanne, and my children—Daniel P. Jr. —he's 4—and my daughter, Lisa Marie—she's 2Vz. But I couldn't Ind anything worth sending. Just a lot of junk. "I walked along the water- ront and saw the old ladies selling bread and straw mats and quarreling over fish the sampans had just brought in, and a junch of kids followed me hollering "Hello, Kay," 'I was feeling kind of weird. I just wanted to get away from everybody, and maybe listen to a few records. I wasn't exactly homesick. Everybody wants to go home. "Then I passed a hotel where another Marine and I had lunch together the last time I had liberty. That made me feel blue, because it wasn't long after that he was killed, one of only two guys our company has lost. He was a nice guy. I remember we talked about home. "You, know, this is the first war I've been in, and it is dnd of hard to classify. One of the enemy's village recruits can take a few potshots at you, then hide his gun, and you can't tell him from a rice farmer. We have to be awful careful about firing." The sergeant looked at his watch. He still had an hour and a half liberty. I asked the sergeant if he minded returning to the hills after so short a leave. "Well, I'm not crazy about batting around those hot hills and being shot at," he replied slowly, "but that is the job we were sent over here to do. "I think about life quite lot when I'm sleeping out there on the ground under the stars And it seems to me the trick in Ufe is to do well whatever you set out to do. If you do you're fat."
