Washington...great leader - - History records men of greatness who have led this nation through hours of trials wars and complex situations to become a nation of strength and honor. George Washington, noted for his integrity and honesty as well as his leadership and courage, remains a man whose character is studied and hopefully followed by leaders of today's government. It has been recorded that Washington did not feel qualified to lead the nation when he was first approached but he accepted the task with humbleness and the promise"to do his best for the country which he.loved. ': He accomplished the task by having an honest zeal and-^aith in his felldwmari. On April 16; 178S--Washingtonwrote -in Tils diary, "I bade adieu to Mount Vernon, to private life and to domestic felicity, and with a mind oppressed with more anxious and painful sensations than I have Words to express set out for New York in company with Mr Thomson and Colonel Humphreys, with the best disposition to render service to my country in obedience to its calls, but with less hope of answering it's expectations." He believed-the future of the government depended upon its acceptance by the peo> pie. He set forth with courage and dedication. The confidence of the people grew as he stood "tall among men," achieving victory after victory. Today we are still living in the 'midst of crises and ordeals undreamed of by us surely lie ahead for our children. But we can look back on the triumphs that have been wrought through great leaders of our nation such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and be encouraged.

(UPI>-A. military police patrol in Vietnam opened' fire on five Marines who said they would not return to their outfits, killing one and wounding another, the Boston Globe, said today. The report was based on a stipulation of facts accepted by both the prosecution and defense at the, court-martial in Da Nang of Pvt. Michael D. Maynard of Jordan, Utah. , Maynard, who has a Vietna r . mese wife, went AWOL in August, 1968, the record shows. He was arrested and sentenced to a year in jail for desertion and started serving his sentence in Da Nang in January, 1969. He escaped in April with another prisoner, Ronald Rouse, and went to Hao Phat where his wife lived, the Globe said. There they hid with two other escaped soldiers, Patrick Burns and David Leibold, and another soldier Maynard did not name. They were discovered in April, 1969, the Globe said. "The MPs were setting up ambushes, just waiting for AWOLs they would set up in the night with guns and everything," Maynard said. "Whenever anybody would come out they would shoot. And I know they killed two . Americans that I am sure of." The Globe said he said they were recognized as AWOL and were asked to give themselves up on April ,29, -1969. They talked for about 30 minutes in a tense situation where • both the patrol and the Marines put their M16s off safety and ready •to fire.' J.. •. ' ; •. -. | .' "Then somebody said something," Maynard said. j "I think it was Burns who said 'we don't want to fire fight I think it was Burns T)ut we're not going you' and who said back.' "They [said all right," May. nard continued. "They put their guns on safety, and we put ours back on safety." . j j Then, ' Maynard said, the sergeant leading the patrol said, "Well, pk, we'll let you 1 go. There's no problem, you know.
