Globe Staffers' NOTEBOOK Harvest Starts In Mo-Kan Mrs. Hobart Williams, 1017 Parallel street, is puzzled. Last year and for several years previously, a bush in the rose garden at her home yielded large pink roses. This year in- stead of the rose bush there is a lilac bush now about 18 inches high in the midst of the other rose bushes. "I'm curious as to how the lilac took over the rose so Mrs. Williams said. O'Neill. Everybody is antique hunting these days and a good source for finding antique items seems to be the popular garage and basement sales and auctions. My husband's brother-in- law, who is a collector of val- uable old books, was on a va- cation trip to Evanston, 111., last week and he and his wife decided to make the rounds of the sales advertised in the paper there. A sale was being held at a 22-room mansion and on ar- riving they found a line of people, standing four abreast, over two blocks long, patiently waiting to get into the house.

Crossroads Report Dear Editor: Seems that some public offi- cials and numerous other people with jobs have got a Thing about Work. There is high and medium and low level wailing about the sadness of Unemployment, and even some effort is being made to coax the career vacationists in California and other places to lower their dignity and pick lettuce and strawberries. My work dropout neighbor says if this is The Great So- ciety, LBJ can have it, because it is purely pointless for people to be out working for money when Welfare has got plenty. D.E.

An Atchison county farmer tells this one: Some years back the farmer noticed that continuing heavy rains had washed earth from under the railroad tracks which cut across a corner of his property, and he feared the Hotel Atchison To Suspend Operations Around The NEK Area MOVE TO EVEREST W.E. Wake- Excise Cut Bill Ready For Signing WASHINGTON (AP) The big excise tax cut bill is on President Johnson's desk. It does away with most of the fed. eral sales taxes, hangovers from Korean War days and even earlier. It was Indefinite when John- son would sign It Into law. He was asked about it at a news conference Thursday, but gave no definite answer.

Ground troops that searched the area found no en- emy casualties from the big air attack, military spokesmen said. Two of the giant eight-engine bombers were lost in a colli- sion over the South China Sea. An amphibious rescue plane made a perilous landing in 12. foot seas to rescue four surviv- ors and picked up the body of a fifth flier, an Air Force spokesman in Manila reported. Seven other airmen were missing, and the rescue plane was tossing on the stormy sea, unable to take off because of a damaged propeller. The sur- vivors were transferred to a passing freighter, but the plane's crewmen .stayed aboard to await a Navy ship. Vietnamese ground units clashed briefly with an estimat- ed 20 Viet Cong in the bombed area, killing one guerrilla and wounding 10 others. The troops also reportedly destroyed about pounds of rice, butnooth- er major results were reported. The object of the mission was to catch a large concentration of Viet Cong believed to be in the jungle. Some reports said it was believed accompanied by Chinese communist advisers. TWO other Americans were killed and a third was wounded today in the Da Nang area, a U.S.military spokesman report- ed. He said one of the dead and the wounded man were victims of a U.S. Marine artillery round that fell short. The spokesman did not know the circumstances of the other death. The B52 jets of the Strategic Air Command flew miles from Guam to make their first air strike In any combat. They rained high explosive pound and 750-pound bombs on the "D" zone jungle, a Viet Cong stronghold where the Communists were reported massing for a sneak attack. After the B52s, a squadron ot B57 twin-jet fighter-bombers plastered the area with explo- sives, fire bombs, rockets and cannon shells. The Air Force declined to evaluate results of the raid until after a careful ground check. Three 60-man units ofVletnam- es.e troops and about a dozen U.S. advisers were sent In to reconnoiter, and an estimated platoon of guerrillas opened fire on one of the units. Helicopter fire helped drive off the Red attackers.

By HAL BOYLE NHA TRANG, South Viet Nam (AP) She was close to tears. It was the last day of duty for Lt. Julie Klebaum, 24, Wapato, Wash., one of seven American nurses at the 8th U.S, Army Field Hospital. She was going home after 3. year here, a year In which some ailing, injured and wound, ed tnen went through the hospi- tal, Julie Is 5 feet 3 and has dark hair, blue-green eyes and a nice figure.

"I have mixed emotions about leaving. There Is a job satisfac- tion here you don't find so fre- quently in the States. "These wonderful men, won- derful patients. They aren't goldbrlckers.

"You become a combined mother, wife, sister and girl she said, laughing. "They all want you to help them shop for things for their women back home. "It's an honor In a way. It's i very unusual position, one I've never been In before. The men are interested in you first be- cause you are around, second because you speak EnjUsh, and only third because you're an American girl. But they're great. They'll do anything for you." Back home nurses aren't sup- posed to wear perfume on duty. "But we all do said Julie. "The patients want us to. They also want us to wear lip. slick and nail polish. They want us to look very feminine. TO them we're the idealization of American women because they don't see any others." The nurses'work a 12-hour day or longer six days a week.
