The Ishpeming Fire Department was host to the first U.P. Firemen's Tournament in I s h- peming in 1895 and, since that time, the event has been held annually, with the exception of the years 1918 and 1943. The U. P. Firemen's Association was organized at a meeting of fire chiefs held in Marquettc on July 10, 1894. At this meeting, a committee of three, consisting of Chief Alex McDonald, Sault Ste. Marie; Chief James G. Gibson, Republic: and Chief H. A. Routhier, Ishpeming, were appointed to draft a constitution and by-laws and also to recommend candidates for officers for the permanent organization. At the original meeting, officers elected were: president, H. A. Routhier, Ishpeming; first vice president, A. J. Scott, Hancock; second vice president, J. E. Bower, Crystal Falls; secretary, T. J. Flynn, Negaunee; and treasurer, L. P. Crary, Marquette. The objectives of the organization were protection and promotion of the best interests of lire- been enlightened by police who stopped traffic on the road hours before the convoy passed. Everyone knew the Americans were coming. Kids waved joyfully. Local district troops, usually infiltrated by the Viet Cong, were securing the firing zone. Later that day, as the artillery fired practice rounds to zero in on expected targets, thereby driving underground any Viet Cong who were there, eight C130 transports flew supplies into nearby Vung Tau. Even a blind man would have known something big was to happen. Eventually, on Thursday, it did. One hundred helicopters began streaming into the battle area. They circled while awaiting the B52 bombers. These arrived, dropped their bombs, and departed. Air Force jets arrived to soften up the troop landing zones. Then the troops were at lasl on the ground. But they moved only 800 yards that day through the tangled jungle. There were two battalions on the ground from the U.S. Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade. Meanwhile, the artillery and Air Force were at work, hammering a "free bombing zone" that included a Buddhist monastery. Twenty monks were injured.

There was very little evidence that the Viet Cong had been there in months. Photographer Huet walked through the jun- gled area devasted by the B52's bombs. The jungle was shattered, but there was no sign of anyone dead. Two Associated Press men, writer Hugh Mulligan and photographer Sam Jones, found the main highway lined with Viet Cong flags when they drove to the operational command post Saturday. A patrol was sent up the road to investigate. By then the paper flags had been removed mysteriously. By Monday morning, when the helicopters came in to lift them out, the paratroopers were tired and depressed. "If our company commanders have anything to do with it, this is the last operation of this kind we'll have," a young officer said. However, the paratrooper: themselves have little say in the matter.

Not even a series of similar operations launched in the past by South Vietnamese military of the operational area days earlier. This nullified the element of surprise. Associated Press photographer Horst Faas drove down 40 miles of highway with the artillery pieces last Wednesday, 24 hours before the troops came in. The spouts of the artillery were pointed right into the operational area. The message was probably not lost on Viet Cong agents. Parents' Plan Inc., 352 Park Avenue South, New York, N.Y.

The Texas Legislature adopted a resolution calling for. its return from the Mexican National Archives at Chapultepec Palace, and Tower Introduced a resolution asking the State Department to look into the matter.
