11B --August 17,1975 « K "SSI Ciafievfoc, AeM Yiraini* Refugee-Moving Operation Scheduled to Call It Quits AGANA, Guam (AP)-"Operation New Life," the job of moving more than 100,000 Vietnamese and Cambodian refugees to new lives in the United States is scheduled to call it quits here by the middle of this week. At that time, says retired Brig. Gen. James Herbert, the operation's director, the human torrent will be down to a trickle. All that remains today, less than four months after the first shocked and bewildered refugees landed at Anderson Airbase, are 3,365 men, women and children, nearly half of them 1.607 Vietnamese who want to return home. By later this week they and a relative handful of 120 single, third country nationals, most of them South Koreans who want to go to America, and a few who want to go elsewhere, will be left. Since the first part of May, 108,000 people--more than Guam's resident population of 100,000--have passed through 16 hastily built or converted camps to centers in the United States. "The magnitude of it was overwhelming," said Herbert, a five-year Vietnam War veteran. "It probably was the most unique project ever undertaken in the time alloted." An American military force of 5.000 and 85 civilians volunteers, many of them Vietnamese who passsed up the chance to go immediately to the United States, handled this human flood. Russell D. Manchester, representative of the U.S. Immigration and Naturaliza- tion Service, who processed them before departure, said "I have great respect for these people and the orderly dignified manner they handled themselves. They responded to kindness with warmth. Many left with tears in their eves."

H U N T I N G T O N WITH STUDIOS IN C H A R L E S T O N By Kay Michael Mr. and Mrs. Denver Hill are becoming more and more fearful of leaving home. Even for a few hours. Friday, the Hills were robbed. Taken sometime during the day were a color television set, two watches, and a camera. "And," Mrs. Hill said Saturday, "we're still looking. I'd estimate we lost about | $2,000 worth of things." · Friday's robbery was the third at her ' home, located between Ruthdale and Dav, is Creek. · Four years ago, in August, the home was : entered while the couple was on vacation. A built-in kitchen was stolen. Cabinets, 2nd '46 Garnet Reunion Held ! The May, 1946 graduating class of the former Garnet High School held its second reunion Saturday in Charleston's Heart-0- Town Motor Inn. '·· In May of 1956,10 years after their.grad- !uation, the class became the first to hold a reunion; It was at that gathering that the 'class decided to hold a reunion every 10 !years. · When plans were made for the 1966 reii- 'nion, members of other classes asked if they might be included. As a result, classes graduating two years before and two iyears after 1946 were invited. More classes became interested, so in July, 1971, all graduates of the school were 'invited to a school reunion and the Garnet ·Alumni Assn. was chartered. , The second all-Garnet reunion was held ilast weekend. range and sink were disassembled and removed. Three years ago, in August, the home was entered and vandals turned on the hot water tank .faucet. The newly carpeted recreation room was flooded. Two years ago, nobody broke in. But by then the Hills were paying a high-risk premium on their homeowners' insurance policy. * * * FRIDAY, the home was burglarized while the couple was working. She is an employe of the central office of the Kanawha County Board of Education. Her husband is an inspector for the State Department of Highways. Their sons discovered the robbery when they returned home from the beach. "We've taken every precaution," Mrs. Hill said Saturday. "We lock the doors and windows, and when we're away, we ask the neighbors to keep an eye oh the house." After the first break-in, she said she telephoned police and asked them to tell her how to better secure her home. She said state police came and' made a number of suggestions. "Most were things that we had been doing," she said, "but we took extra precautions." Her chief concern, she said, is the apparent lack of interest on the part of police. "Shortly after the first robbery," she . said, "I saw in the newspaper that a warehouse full of stolen merchandise had been found. I called police to ask if they wanted me to look at the merchandise and tell them if any belonged to us. "They acted as though they really didn't want to be bothered." All she wants, she said, is to cooperate with police and help apprehend the burglars. A spokesman for the. South Charleston state police detachment said officers are investigating the Hill break-in. He said two officers spent two hours at the Hill home Saturday investigating the case. Start your day with Breakfast at McDonald's! and we'll start it off with Free Juice!
