Rellly «nd Hak choo Kang answers to the name of Ryan or Ktlroy In an accent no son or Erin would ever recognize. They are about as Irish as the. Notre Dame lineup. But they are first, class fighting men In "Clalnos olouters." a battalion commanded by Lt. Col. Peter D. clalno* of Manchester, N. H. His men are known as "the firemen of the western front" because « their emergency rides to backstop holes in the allied Naktong River defense line. The Eighth Army has underway a program to integrate South Korean soldiers with each American . But "Pistol pete" Clainos 't wait for trained Republic ^Korean soldiers to be assigned to him. His men had been impressed by the sturdy help given them by volunteer native bearers in battle. So they went into Taegu to seek volunteers who would join them as actual fighting men. They got six members of the Korean constabulary. The six were promptly Issued two candy bars and two packs of cigareta and given a hot meal. That word swept through the city like a fresh "wind across the rice paddies. Immediately the battalion was •wamped with volunteers. Buddy-Buddy Colonel Clainos accepted 140 and immediately established a "buddy »yst«m" to Indoctrinate his roks Into American Army ways.

"There is no more effective way of utilizing South Korean manpower than by making their men part and parcel of an American outfit" said Clainos. "They eat like an American, dress like an American and cut their hair like an American. They arenf treated as cannon rodder or assigned just to fatigue details. They share everything just us if they were GI's. So far no arrangement has been made to pay the roks. But a regimental commander in their own army draws only $12 a month. And the rok captain. Soo Whan Cluing, says his men aren't worried about money. He Is a stocky 25-year old graduate of the Japnnes military academy who has to be discouraged from enforcing discipline by whacking his roks broadside with a Samurai sword he always carries. He is credited with killing seven Hcds with the sword in hand-to-hand combat. "We gel along like to fingers on the same hand," said Captain Soo. "The buddy system will make the United Nations war effort 180 per cent effective. All my men are willing to give their lives if ordered to do so." Ciainos said the volunteers had proved themselves able soldiers and Capt. Art westburg of Washington. D. c.. commander of a company, added: "They like it here so well that we couldn't beat them away with clubs now." "They really catch on fast—they have the spirit," snid Master Sgt. Clyde R. pinkerton of Poplar Bluff, Mo. "They belong." The rok soldiers nnd their GI buddies overcome the language barrier by drawing pictures in the sand of their bivouac nrea, nf tanks and airplanes and other, military weapons and learn each others words for them. One veteran sergeant philanthropically undertook to teach a few rok buddies the Intricacies of poker. "You know," he said later. "In some ways these boys learn too damn quick."
