Vietnam returns
remains of 3
American G.I.s

CLARK AIR FORCE BASE, Philip-
pines (UPI) - Vietnam yesterday han-
ded over to a U.S. honor guard three
small wooden coffins with the remains
of three American servicemen missing
since the Vietnam War.
In the first such ceremony since 1978,
the 10-man honor guard flew into Hanoi
Airport to take the coffins aboard a .S.
Air Force C-130 Hercules transport and
fly them back to Clark Air Force Base.
AFTER AN overnight stop, they will
be flown to Hawaii where tests will be
made to determine identities, a base
spokesman said.
The remains were the first to be
released by Vietnam since October 1978
and bring to 74 the- number of bodies
returned to the United States by Hanoi
since 1973. More than 2,500 American
servicemen, mostly airmen, are still
listed as missing in action in Vietnam
since the first American casualty in
1964.
THE U.S. military honor guard at
Hanoi airport was led by Lt. Col. Joe
O Jin

News Staff

Harvey from the U.S. Joint Casualty
Resolution Center in Hawaii.
The brief airport ceremony "went
very smoothly," said Lt. Col. Hugh
Burns, a spokesman for the team. that
went to Hanoi.
"We're certainly pleased that the
Vietnamese were able to return the
remains of three armed forces person-
nel and that the turnover activity went
well," he said.
"WE LOOK forward for the Viet-
namese to turn over additional
remains."
Vietnamese- officials tentatively
identified the three when they informed
U.S. authorities in May that their
remains had been retrieved. But
because of past errors, the Americans
asked that no names be released until
U.S. officials completed their own tests.
Except among relatives, there is vir-
tually no hope that any of the American
MIAs survivedfrom the 1964-73 war,
although 165 are known to have been
captured alive by Vietnamese orLao
Communists.
SEVERAL U.S. congressmen have
accused Vietnam of holding the
remains of at least 400 American MIAs
as "blackmail" to press the United
States to grant Hanoi aid.
-Organizations of relatives of missing
men have also accused the Vietnamese
and Lao authorities of still holding
American prisoners of war in secret
jungle camps.

INFORMA TION NEEDED FOR RABIES PREVENTION
Officials counting dogs

(Continued from Page 3)
Lyn Devantier, Operations Manager
at the Huron Valley Humane Society,
agreed that the census could be the
reason more people are abandoning
their dogs. "Every dog is required to
have that rabies shot in order to get a
license," she explained, "which tends
to get expensive."
THE PRICES for a rabies vac-
cination are $10 for a one-year shot and
$12 for a three-year shot, according to
Carr's Veterinary Clinic in Ypsilanti.

Dexter report that since the census
began, more people than usual have
been requesting rabies vaccinations for
their dogs.
"A lot more people are insisting on
tags and receipts to show the census
people," said Nancy Roeser of the
Brookside Veterinary Clinic in Ann Ar-
bor.
Case said he hopes the census, begun
April 1, will be completed by the end of
August. Although some people have
been very receptive, he states that
others are far less so,
"MANY PEOPLE say they have no
dog, when the census taker can hear
one barking, or they say that their dog

is less than six months old, and
therefore not required to be licensed,"
said Case.
Yet he estimates that prior to the
census, 75 to 80 percent of all dogs in the
county were unlicensed. "The census is
sort of a 'necessary evil,' " Case admit-
ted, "but it is necessary."
