*a revelation in Vietnam
By JOHN PAPANEK
(First of two parts.)
you've all seen the deal on TV. Bob Hope, in his plaster face,
up on the stage at some base in Vietnam delivering his stale
monologue. One by one they come out: a beautiful white girl for
the white boys, a beautiful black girl for the black boys, some
dumb sports hero for all the boys. Each one flawlessly recites the
hilarious onefiliners written for him or her by Hope's writers.
Then comes the clincher: A long, slow pan of the audience.
Yes, there they are, all thse American men-children, robbed from
their cradles to face the cruelty of war. "Let's all stand behind
these boys," says Bob, "They're doing a great job."
Then there was another trip to Vietnan. Sponsored by
the NCAA, Michigan's two All-America football candidates
Bill Taylor and Glenn Doughty made the trip this past
Christmas. But somehow they missed all those smiling faces,
and they didn't hear very many men saying "Gee, sir, as
long as America cares, I'll do my duty."
What they did find was man after man quite plainly want-
% ing "to get the hell out of here as soon as possible."
"The trip was really an education," Doughty explains. "Just
seeing the living conditions of the people and the soldiers first
hand is incredible. The physical scenery of the country is beau-
tiful, but in the villages and cities there is nothing but filth and
poverty.'!'"
The! trip was classified a "handshake tour", which meant
., simply that Doughty and Taylor would just go from base to base
and talk to the soldiers about all sorts of things. "The fact that
we were football players attracted the men to us," says Taylor,
"But football is one of the things we talked least about. Every-
body wanted to talk. They couldn't believe that we would take
time off from our holidays to go over there."
What did they talk about? "Man, they just want to get
4 home," Doughty moans. "You know, most of them don't
even know why they are there. The war makes no sense to
them. The officers can't tell them because they don't know
anything either." "When we (U.S.) first went in there,"
Taylor adds, "It was a good thing. But we've done all we
could and. there's no sense staying any longer."
Doughty likes the current rate of troop withdrawal. "The
U.S. has devoted so much money and men that to pull out at
once would be an injustice to the guys that died over there. The
pull out rate now is cool. Vietnamization seems to be working."
One thing that appalled the duo was the contrasting living
conditions of American soldiers. "We spent a lot of time talking
to guys in the fire bases up near the DMZ," says Doughty.
"These are the ones living in the mud, in constant fear of their
lives. But then we went down south and the difference was un-
believable. We got to one place on New Year's Eve, and there was
this 60-foot swimming pool, with guys laying around it in shades
with beautiful tans, and there were tennis courts. Man, this place
looked like Miami Beach!"
"Wherever we went," says Taylor, "Except for a few
of the fire bases, we just found guys who had nothing to do.
I just kept thinking how stupid it was for the U.S. to have
guys over there just doing nothing.
"Man, you should have seen these officers in the USO,
where we were staying in Saigon. They were drunk every
night. I don't know how they can run things over there."
Another thing that Doughty and Taylor learned from their
trip was the way news from Vietnam was shaped for the Ameri-
can public. "I saw things over there that I had never even
though about," Doughty says. "You know how they often report
that some guy died of unknown causes? Well, one of those causes
in a Hell's Angels type motorcycle group of South Vietnamese.
While we were in Saigon for two days, they killed three Ameri-
can soldiers. The U.S. government doesn't want to get involved,
so they just say 'death cause unknown.'"
"We had a long interview with a reporter over there and we
talked about exactly what we had seen: bad living conditions,
drugs, racism, the attitudes of the guys. Then we saw the story
that this women wrote and it had almost nothing to do with
what we said," says Doughty. "I said to myself, if everything we
hear about Vietnam is handled in this way, then we just don't
get all the truth."
TOMORROW: Drugs and racism.

Hoope Pickiygs
Breathing room was at a premium in the Michigan Daily
building today as the first thousand Hoope Pickings entries poured in.
According to reliable sources, many entries were accompanied by
"sizeable stipends," apparently intended as bribes. One entry simply
said, "I'm starved. See that I win the pizza and I'm yours. Signed
West Quaddie."
Yes, hoope fans, there's still a chance that you too can become the
happy winner of a Cottage Inn pizza, and the unhappy loser, when
the starving gluttons on your dorm corridor eat you as well as the
pizza. (You can even leave in your will the free bowling game for two
also offered in this stupendous deal!)
But one thing you can rest assured. The noble, valiant Daily
Sports Staff will not be bribed. So get your entries in by midnight
Friday, and make those checks payable to Daily Sports, inc.

In a plea for help from
someone who needs it? In a

the Establishment? In a talk
session for a marriage-on-the-

You'd be surprised,
The sounds of love are

The Paulists listen. But,

It isn't easy being a Paulist.
