God pretty much forgot 3R A B O U T 15 YEARS Ive been keeping score Ive contacted scores of Ameri cans who made the acquaint ance of the Southwest Pacific during World War II Only two of that number have expressed a desire to return to the scene of their miseries One of these was Dr Charles W Mayo one of the best known men in the field of medicine The other was a man named Fred Hargesheimer who now his wife and three White Bear Lake Minn In both cases it was the people not the land that drew them back And both of them did go back The story of Dr Mayos dis tinguished service in that far away part of the world has been told in magazines and books Our paths crossed in Washing ton D C on the anniversary of Peart Harbor Day As we boarded a plane at Friendship Airport Baltimore he told me of his tentative plans to return to nii wartimehaunts Sine then his plans have been car ried out The Har0esheimer story is equally interesting Its filled with suspense and human in terest I heard him

village the young American was removed to a hideout in a hollow tree j Ultimately it was a matter of several weeks an American submarine appeared at the con fluence of a river at an ap pointed hour and Fred Harge sheimer was rescued But he had left a part of his heart in that fleabitten little village in habited by natives imbued with rudimentary Christian ideas brought to them by missiona ries Two years ago in the spring of 1960 Fred Hargesheimer returned to that distant village in the South Pacific He found it amazingly like it was when he left There had been a few births and a few deaths but the population was less than half a hundred The natives remem bered him and he remembered them It was a touching home coming Somewhere along the line and It could have been in connection with that return to Nantambu Hargesheimer resolved that in gratitude to the villagers had rescued him and nursedhim back to health he would ex plore the possibilities of start Twm to Pate 2 Please Still no
