Freeman, Peggy Power, Chief BUir Mann, Robert Merchant, A. W. Henscey and Morris Gill Working on a quizz are Sgt. Thander Reeves, Lt. B. J. Ausley, Sgt. Raymond Hardy, Lt. C. W. Cowan, Lt. Glenn King and Sgt. Ron Cooper Baytown Police Supervisors Go To School, Learn Supervisory Role .Members of the supervisory stall ol the Baytown Police Department went back to school ;il iheCominunily Building to get supervisory instruction from the Texas A&M Industrial Education Service. J. W. Hunt of the A&M En- gineering Extension Service was instructor for the supervisory development, program bused oil principles of supervision. Hunt, in addressing the eiass which consisted of Chief of Police Blair Mann, lieutenants, sergeants and detectives, and OKINAWA SIGNS REFLECT TROOPS' NOSTALGIC PAST CAMP HANSEN, Okinawa i AP> -— The garish signs reflect the nostalgia and the past of the U.S. Marines: "China Garden," •Club Tokyo Rose," "Pizza Pie." They decorate the modest building fronts of Kin, a fron- ner-style Okinawan town at the main gate ol this big Marine center, which every month processes UO.UOU "Dog-faces" moving-to and from Vietnam battle areas. Down the street another sign speaks of their oil-duty moini'iHs: "Club China Night; tak- usiin young nesan." Freely translated from the Japanese it means: "Lots of young elder sisters." inside Camp Hansen young Marines mingle with lough old iiTgeanls. in one ol the offices a poster proclaims: "This vacation visit boauuful Vietnam ..." The illustration shows bearded Mamies charging into battle. Inside an enormous hangar, /ii..")UU Marine dufiiebags and handbags, some upright, some slouching, attest to the movement of America's fighting men. Left here for sakekeeping by those enroute to Vietnam, they contain some personal belongings and the green and khaki uniforms they do not need "down south," where dungarees :mtj jungle uniforms are used The bags are to be picked up on the way back home. Some iind their way to hospital wards IUTU and in America; others make a lonely journey to the homes of "next of kin." The Marine operation is one lacet of the military activity in support of the Vietnam front engaged in by the United States on Okinawa. Some facets are highly visible—like the B52s roaring off from the Air Force's Kadena Airbase. Others are behind the scenes—like the placing of tiny transistors in electronics equipment at the 2nd Logistical Com-, maud. Together, the men, materiel and bases represent a multibillion-dollar U.S. investment in a onetime Japanese prefecture whose return to Japan is now being demanded. While politicians and diplomats debate the question the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines go about their jobs. Until the United States gives it back to Japan, Okinawa will continue lo be the most valuable U.S. jumping-off point for American lighting men in Asia. It has that status because it is run for and by the Army Department free of any annoyance from the population. Lt. Gen. James Lampert is high commissioner and administrator of the Ryukyus chain of islands. Many things come under his military hat. The 3()th Artillery Brigade operates Hawk and Nike-Hercules missiles bases in the islands. The 2nd Logistical Command repairs radio, radar, teletype, telephone and radio-relay electronics equipment in use in Vietnam as well as similar equipment employed here. The U.S. Army Medical Center has a hospital, the largest and most modern medical facility in the Western Pacific. There are also the 1st Special Forces group of Green Berets; the 7th Psychological Operations group, grinding out propaganda aimed at the Vietnam enemy; and Fort Buckner, which embraces all the land leased or rented by the Army in the Kyukyus. The 313lh Air Division—headed by Maj. Gen. Jerry D. Page —is the main Air Force unit and j,2l>0-acre Kadena Airbase its biggest installation. A plane lands or takes off every three minutes on its parallel 9,000-fool and 12,000-foot runways. Some, like F105 thunder jets and F102 Delta Daggers, are on patrol duty. Others, like the B52s, are headed for action in Vietnam. The Navy, a smaller group, meets the needs of 7th Fleet units pulling into Okinawan ports, operates target drones and conducts antisubmarine operations. Though 50,000 U.S. military men are on Okinawa, relations with the Okinawans are described as generally satisfactory. There are the usual off-duty brawls and occasional crimes, but not any more than those occurring in military areas elsewhere. A farrier is also known as a blacksmith, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Rostow Says He Won't 'Tiy LBJ Foreign Policy AUSTIN (AP) — Walt Rostow, one of Lyndon Johnson's inner circle of Vietnam war advisors, says he won't use his University of Texas classroom to attempt to justify the LBJ foreign policy. "I hope I've learned something in eight years that I will be able to share with students," said Rostow, who was a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology when John F. Kennedy summoned him to government service in 1961. Rostow, 52, teaches his first class, a graduate seminar called "Politics, Growth and Conflict," Wednesday. He was hired as an associate history and economics professor and his wife as an American studies teacher. At a news conference, he said he will have an office in the federal building downtown, the same building where Johnson also has a suite. He said he will work on several books and help the former president organize his memoirs. Rostow had no comment on why he did not return to MIT, where he reportedly was unwelcome because of his support for the Vietnam war. Of the possibility of student demonstrations against his appointment at Texas, he said, "I've never felt that a university is a place where people should agree but one where they should talk together."

"We hope to impart with you, a little knowledge of the basic principles oi management and ways of applying certain prin- ..pJes to your problems," Hunt loid the officers.' In a humorous gesture, Hunt told the class that times change. "Twenty years ago, people used Attend Church Sunday to go around telling moron jokes . . . now the morons go around telling Aggie jokes. "That is just an example of how things change. But good basic and sound principles of supervision and management will be around long after the jokes grow stale," Hunt said. The Baytown Police Department became the first class of dll-policemen to be afforded the special course. As a group, the police officials fell the course was an excellent presentation and feel that the supervisory hints gained will help promote efficiency in their own respective departments. "1 think the course will help develop a background of knowledge, theories and opinions will increase the department's desire for better supervision and economy of operation," Chief Mann said. "We furnish proven techniques by which Baylown policemen can apply knowledge to your job and relate yourself properly to all people and positions in your, department. . . the rest is up to yuu,' Hunt told the supervisors.
