August 4, 1978 White Falcon Page 3 0 Continued from page 1 Buddy visits greenhouses and wanted to see all that beauty." Buddy and his wife stayed two days In Iceland. The first day they toured the countryside. The second day, they discovered that their flight was not confirmed and then gave AFRTS a surprise visit with their extra time. Buddy's latest career venture is an NBC movie called "Budd and Lou", the life story of Abbot and Costello. Buddy played Costello and Harvey Korman, Abbot. "We did some of the old routines but the movie isn't all comical because in real life Costello's life was tragic. I knew Lou Costello because I was his stand-in at Universal; I felt strong emotions playing that part." In future movie plans, Buddy would play Whimpey, in "Popeye", Lilly Tomlin might do Olive Oil and Dustin Hoffman, Popeye. Family responsibilities between Buddy and his wife were explained like this. "I'm in charge of interplanetary travel, purchasing leaky oceanliners and World War III, TV, and V. My vife is in charge of menial things like the family budget, where the kids go to school, our clothes, etc. I also take out the garbage." Paul Waldrop then asked Buddy for his impression of the base. "This base is very important and all your jobs here are important. Many people-the world over are wp<~ching you." In 1963, Buddy did a movie behind the Iron Curtain in Hungary. "I saw what it was like for those people to live under a Communist Party and the people were not happy at all. The movie we did there also wasn't allowed to be shown. J02 Waldrop said he was impressed and excited to talk with and interview Buddy. "I regard it as a highlight in my radio career." After spending almost an hour in the radio section, Buddy then let televir- sion's Marc Streeter interview him. Marc Streeter, who seemed the most calm of all of us with what was happen- ing, confessed, "There was an element of shock when I was in the office doing work with the earphones on to see Buddy Hackett over my shoulder, out of nowhere. He was very friendly and our interview was very interesting for me to do with him. It was a generous gesture coming to the station, allowing us to interview him and give somthing unique and different to the base. His wife is most charming and we dis- cussed the coffee maker while we were fixing a fresh pot. She thanked us tor accommodating them. I said we felt the same way and also thank them." Afterwards the Hacketts stopped off at the Windbreaker for a short bon voyage and then caught their flight for home at 5:30 p.m. They made it a most unusual and enjoyable Friday for many people on base.

Customs Every household goods and express shipment leaving Iceland for the United States is subject to inspection by United States Customs agents. Normally an inspection of cargo entering the United States is accomplished at the port of entry by U.S. Customs agents. However, through the use of Military Customs Inspector (MCI) pro- gram this procedure has been eliminated. Under the MCI program U.S. Customs in- spectors visit the base on a regular basis and teach a group of military personnel the procedures of inspecting a shipment. The MCI then works with the movers and inspects the shipment as the movers pack it. If the MCI program did not exist, a shipment entering the states would be unpacked by a team of dock workers, inspected by a customs agent, then repacked by the dock workers. This creates an unavoidable cost factor for the customs bureau plus an undesirable damage factor. Just about anything produced in Ice- land may be taken back to the states. This includes sheepskins that are tanned. Two common items that may not be taken into the states are untanned sheepskins (untanned sheepskins are stiff like cardboard and have a strong smell) and, as a result of the Endangered Species Act, items made from whales are also restricted. Firearms may be shipped into the states, but these require special forms and permission which should be obtained well before your move. Basically,anything you have in your possession, for your own personal use may be shipped. If you have 20 or 30 Icelandic sweaters that you would like to ship back to sell, there would be an import charge. Your military customs inspector or the base customs office will be glad to answer any questions you have regarding a particular item. Housing According to Mrs. Roberta Brookins, Housing Project Assistant, one of the biggest problems the Housing Office has in regards to checking out is getting a notice of the packout. The Housing Office needs 30 - 45 days notice prior to a packout and the member has to notify the office in person. The Housing- Office will then have time to arrange for the member to have furniture moved in after his household goods are shipped out. The final stage in packin' out is the housing inspection. The Housing Office has a checklist of what the inspector will be looking for in the inspection. Some people will opt to hire a crew to clean their apartment. Housing main- tains a list of the cleaning crews solely as a service for their customers. Housing doesn't endorse any of the crews and is in no way responsible for the quality of workmanship. Hiring a cleaning crew does not re- lieve the occupant of the responsibility for standing the inspection. The person checking out is responsible for the apartment until the inspection is finished and the key is turned over.
