FACE SIX BI/1THEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER THURSDAY, OCTOBER M, 1999 Disgusted by Peaceful Operation W/iat-f he-He// Landing ; Rt HKM 1'RTCK '? \VON r SAN, Korea. Oct. 26. (rt->— | Baffled Riid disgusted U. S. Marines ambled ashore here today in "Op- frallon What-the-HeH." ' > That war, their private description of the maneuver which sent j them ashore in dribteta on mi east coast beach where the situation was already well In hand. ; Growled Lt. Raymond J. Elledgc of San Gabriel. Calif.: ; , "Nobody likes to get shot at gotiiB •shore, but this isn't the way the Marine Corps works. Tnis is more like an Army Job." i Said Lit. Earl D. DeLong of Norfolk, Va., and Philadelphia: • "It's kind of a disappointment. You know you get all keyed up to do something then there Is this ]et down." When this operation was planned it was to have been a slarn bang affair on Oct. 20 against R well fortified peninsula sticking northward across the mouth of this important port, one of the best in Korea. By the time the Marines arrived, however, Republic of Korea (ROK) troops had swept through the town and on to the north and west. So for six tra days the larpe convoy earring troops and supplies sailed up and down the Japanese sea, cruising at eight knots. The Marines asked ironically: "Is this trip necessary?"* Pools were made up aboard ship each night as to what time the world would be passed U> roverse course. Before actual landing, the whole thing had become a huge joke. Field in Operation The Marines just couldn't see landing to seize an airfield, their initial objective, which already was In operation by the First. Marine Air win?. En route to their anchorage for the dawn landing, the Marines lightened the otherwise duU opcra- ttion by shouting Insults at the battleship Missouri. As their ship, the TJSS Picknway, passed astern of the Battleship, the Marines yelled' "Where's Harry? "How do you people like shore duty?" "Hey, mudbank, hQw'd you get out here. That's deep water." The Marines were cheerful enough as they landed. But they doubted profoundly and profanely the ancestry of whoever it was that ordered the operation, carried 1 out a- falnst a peaceful shore. It didn't make the Marines my happier cither to learn the Army's Tenth Corps, which had set up headquarters In Wonsaji. had named the main drag "MacArthur Boulevard." The Tenth Corps is the operational command for the Marines, the Seventh Army Division and the ROK divisions on the east coast. . - 'As., the convoy arri vcd j\ t its an - cborage 'the Marines noted with rnock alarm thn buoys marking (he 3,000 yard wide channel through the Extensive mine field, To sweep (his peaceful harbor cost four mmeswceprs. Once on thn trip up the convoy was forced off course slightly by the presence of three floating mines. Had any of the troop ships struck one, nearly 2,000 men might have been lost.

Massachusetts Voters Will Decide State Lottery to Pay Pension Hike BOSTON, Oct. 26. chusetts voters ballot )—Mass*-* next month on the question of going into the gambling business with R state lottery. The tuiesUon comes up hy litiiia- Uve petition for a lottery to help finance old age assist mice, if It Massachusetts would be the only state in the union with an official stale lottery. The Initiative—filed under a constitutional provision which gives the people the right to initiate laws — was sponsored by the Massachusetts Society for Old Age Pension!;. The society has a second Snitia five on the same Nov. 1 ballot—to fix minimum OAA payments at $15 a month, to make aliens eligible 1 , and to relieve children of legal responsibility lo .support their parents. It also would reduce the eligible .iRfl from 65 to 03. Tf (lie tottery law passes—and only a handful of the dozens of initiatives which have been voted on in the last 30 years have been de- Tentedthe state will be reaching back more than 100 years. It was in 1811 that the public lottery V.KS authorized — to vaLsc Slfi.COO for public improvements in the town of Plymouth. That lottery ran for nine years. t It paid out $8B(i,'l3fl.75 In prizes. And it raised $9,87G.n for the Improvements. Ma.ssarhusetUs voted lotteries out in 1833. Pennsylvania banned them the same ycnr. a;id New York banned (hem the following ycnr. Louisiana ran them as late nx I8f>2. Thp question Is so loucliy that the Massachusetts lesistnlure ducked a vote on the issue In Its last session. The state constitution requires both House and Senate to vote on initiatives by the first Wednesday in June, The House let the da te go by without calling the two questions up for a vote.
