Life on M*A*S*H*
Korean war vets
By MIKE AUS
When MASH ends its ten-year reign
as one of TV's most popular series
February 28, Ann Arbor residents who
served in the Korean War will be
lamenting the loss of a realistic por-
trayal of life on the front lines.
Ann Arbor resident Spud Watkins, an
Army hospital administrator in Korea,
during 1952, said he especially ap-
preciates the program's commentary
on the war.
"IT REALLY shows the stupidity of
the whole thing," he said, "and it shows
that people really do care about others
in times of crisis."
Watkins, a casualty evacuation
specialist during the war, said the show
generally presents a realistic picture of
life in a MASH unit, but added there are
some differences between television
and real battle situations.
The biggest difference, Watkins said,
was the size of the MASH units. Instead
of the dozen or so patients being cared
for in the television show, "a real
MASH unit will have 35 to 50 patients in
a tent," he said.
"CASUALTIES came in all different
categories and they were coming in all
the time," he said. "This is quite dif-
ferent from what you see on the TV.
There you're seeing only the serious'
Dr. Thomas Petrick, a retired
physician who served in Korea for the
last seven months of combat, also en-
joys the series and. believes it
realistically presents the war situation.
Unlike Watkins, however, Petrick
said the show takes liberties with
political commentary. "The television
series is pretty close to it when they
stick to medicine, but they take the
social consciousness of the Vietnam
War and transfer it to the Korean War.
It didn't really work that way," he said.
PETRICK POINTED specifically to
the character "Hawkeye," whom he
described as "very uptight about the
war". Petrick said that, although
people felt strongly about the war,
"They weren't that bleeding about it."
DURING THE war Petrick served
with the Korean Military Advisory
Group (KMAG) and was an advisor at a
Korean MASH unit. He explained that
American physicians were needed in
this way because of the inferior training
of the Korean physicians. "I cured the
entire Korean Army of gonorrhea
because they were mis-diagnosing it,"

Great Britain, like the United States,
has been hit hard by unemployment in
the past few years. Keeping that in
mind, Britain would not seem a likely
place for American college students to
Thanks to a special agreement bet-
ween the British and U.S. governments,
however, an employment exchange
program, which began in 1966, allows
students the opportunity to work
THE PROGRAM, administered join-
tly by the British Universities North
America Club and4he Council on Inter-
national Educational Exchange, has
helped thousands of American students
to find work in Britain, bypassing the
red tape involved in getting foreign
A fee of $60 buys qualified students a

months of paid work overseas.

Ireland was set up in 1975 in

bor to address students about their

"THE IDEA of the program is to give
students who normally couldn't afford
the cost of traveling in Europe the op-
portunity to do so," Meaney said.
Dr. Jim Gehlhar of the University's
International Center said, "It's a good
program because it offers students a
means to get jobs (in Europe) legally
over the summertime."
In the past, students have worked as
waiters, bartenders, farmhands, hotel
receptionists and fruit pickers, to
name just a few. These kinds of jobs
can be found upon arrival.
SOME STUDENTS have even fourIfO
jobs more closely related to their field
of study, or work of a more professional
nature. This kind of work, however, is
more difficult to find, and students are
advised to make serious efforts well
ahead of the time they plan to arrive.
Information about both programs, as
well as similar programs in France and
New Zealand, and a travel-study
program in Dublin, can be obtained
from the International Center, which
will remain open during spring break.
Man goes on rampage
A 59-year-old Ann Arbor man went on
a rampage Tuesday morning,
smashing a computer terminal and
throwing hot coffee on a police officer
before he was arrested. Police said the
suspect, Craig Wilder, became im-
patient while waiting in line at Regency
Travel on the corner of Maynard and E.
William and asked a female employee
for a plane ticket to China. When the
woman asked how he wanted to pay for
the ticket, Wilder allegedly became up-
set and threw a chair, missing her.
Police said he threw a flower pot at
another employee before picking up a
computer terminal and smashing it on
a desk top. Wilder then allegedly
walked out of the travel agency and
over to McDonald's restaurant on
Maynard. When police arrived at the
restaurant, he threw hot coffee on one
of them, forcing them to subdue him.
Bond was set at $10,000 after he was
arraigned on charges of felonious
assault and malicious destruction of
property. Wilder was ordered to the
forensic center at Ypsilanti Regional
Psychiatric Hospital for examination.
A gun-wielding robber accosted a 19-
year-old University student outside of
Goodtime Charlie's early yesterday
morning. Police said the victim was
walking down South University when
the robber grabbed him from behind
and held, a gun against the student's.
back, demanding money. After taking
the victim's wallet, which contained a
small amount of cash, he fled on foot.
Police said they have no suspects.
