FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Boyle Talks with GIs About Their Japanese Girl Friends By HAL BOYLE # KOREA—<«>>—One day on a hill«Ui« north o! Taegu I was talking with a group of doughboys about their Japanese girl friends. A major had told me that at least 16 per cent of American troops who have spent much time in Japan hue set up some kind of arrange• tjNtit -with, a Japanese girl. ' There Is something endlessly touching and pathetic In these to-1 mances between otir occupation forces and the women of an alien land and alien culture. Muny reflect only male opportunism. But others re!Hc.\. the hunger of lonely and troubled men for stability and love. The odds are against these impromptu housekeeping setups ever ripening into permanence. There are many barriers to cross. But It is ani'izing how often the unions have developed Into deep and gen- ices at 1:45 uine partnerships which the sol- P.Y.P.A. Night. diers themselves seek to perpetuate by Christian marriage. "One thing about a Japanese girl —once she falls for you she will stay faithful," said one soldier on the hillside. "I don't worry about that as much as the guys who have girls back in Ihc States." "Japanese girls don't try to gold- dig you," a young private said. "They're willing to give more than they get. They don't ask anything of you.". Sergeant's Plot Fails Rather shyly he pulled out a letter and handed il to me. Just then an. enemy sniper opened .up on our position and I had to read the letter lying face down in a nearby ditch. It was from a girl who worked In a Tokyo cabaret, and apparently a-rear area sergeant'hRd been try^ to two-time the private. __ ome sergeant told me you dyed/ siTe wrote In;quaint pldgeon English, "so I thought you dyed aiu I.prayed to Got and present fruits »nd beer to your gliost yesterday. ''But your letter come today. I trust' nobody except you. "Please come back 'to anywhere ill Japan. I'll try best to find, you. "You saying you want know way for send money for me but I can't ' tell you about money because you fighting for peace. I don't have any hcpe except you." And • then she told her absent lover: : ' . "We can look only one things together. Do. yoll know what? That is moon. Always look at sky a lid remember. ; ."I'm- surely will be nice girl and waiting for -you. You forget me. I'm : worrty one things only — if aomethtngt happen you. I pray your •afety «nd good lucky." She signed it with her love. When the sniper's lire had lifted 1 handed th« letter back to the private and he silently put it in the pocket over ; Kw heart. , : '}^ .'^4 Then lie picked up his rifle and <Sfent business. War is "rtrangi and peace is often stranger. But -unle'sa the . gods of battle •end a bullet. through that letter 1 feel jure the private's little cabaret girl ,will fare better than did Madame Butterfly when this noisy time. ]f put.
