European Stars And Stripes (Newspaper) - March 6, 1972, Darmstadt, HesseThe Three-Day Soldiers No marching, no uniforms-Army wines and dines would-be GIs on love-it-or-leave it basis By B. DRUMMOND AYRESFT. JACKSON, S.C. (NYT) — The boys in the senior classin McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Ga., were ac-customed to armed forces re- cruiters promising them theworld or at least a chance to see it.But they became unusually skeptical when they were of-fered a chance to join the Army for three days on a look-see, love-it-or-leave-it, no-ob- ligation basis.This new pitch seemed just too good to be true, even com-ing from a service that obvi- ously was desperately trying towoo enough young men to be- come an all-volunteer force.Still, David Blunschi and Fred Granity, each 17 yearsold, signed up, wary, but curious, not sure what to dowith their lives after gradua- tion in May.They arrived here by bus Monday morning — along with96 other curious young men from all over Georgia andSouth Carolina — were hailed with a warm "welcome!" by asoft-talking buck sergeant of strangely gentle mien, thenwere handed shiny gold name Kleindienst Vote Off Indefinitely From Press Dispatches WASHINGTON — ASenate vote on Richard G. Kleindienst's nomination for at-torney general was delayed indefinitely Saturday becausea key lobbyist sought for questioning about a Justice De-partment antitrust case was gravely ill in a Denver hos-pital. Mrs. Dita D. Beard, 53, theWashington lobbyist for Inter- national Telephone and Tele-graph Corp. (ITT), had been sought by FBI agents as thepurported author of a memo- randum linking the govern-ment's settlement of a con- troversial ITT merger proposaland an ITT subsidiary's $400,000 offer to help financethe 1972 Republican National Convention. (Related story onPage 27.) In an unexplained, surprisemove, the Senate Judiciary Committee announced Sundaythat its inquiry into accusa- tions against Kleindienst willbe resumed Monday morning, instead of Tuesday.The committee counsel John H. Holloman III, an- nounced the change but de-clined to say who will testify as the panel delves further intoallegations made by columnist Jack Anderson against Klein-dienst. Kleindienst's nomination tobe attorney general had been approved unanimously by thecommittee and reported to the Senate last week before Ander-son's claims. Kleindienst requested thehearing and in testimony last week denied that there wasany link between the sett- (Cont. on Page 28, Col. 5J Purported ITT Memo: *, • . under no circumstances would anyone in this office discuss with anyone our participation in the (GOP) convention. . . .' WASHINGTON (UPI) — Thetext of the purported memo from ITT lobbyist Dita D.Beard to W. R. Merriam, head of the firm's Washington of-fice, was made public by co- lumnist Jack Anderson:"I just had a long talk with EDG (E.D. Gerrity, head ofpublic relations for I.T.T.).

Police said Leonard Wil-liams, 24, who is charged with homicide in the fire, threa-tened vengence after an ar- gument with Martha Bradford, 24, and her brother, Thomas.Mrs. Bradford died in the predawn blaze Saturday.Gus Blatch, owner of the Alibi Inn, a tavern on theground floor of the building, said the argument began bet-ween Williams and Mrs. Brad- ford.

Other than permitting John Mitchell,(Lt. Gqv.) Ed Reinecke (of California), Bob Haldeman (ofthe' White House staff) and Nixon (besides (Rep.

You can't imaginehow many queries I've had from "friends" about thissituation and 1 have in each and every case denied know-ledge of any kind. It would be wise for all of us here to con-tinue to do that, regardless of from whom any questionscome, White House or who- ever. John Mitchell has certain-ly kept it on the higher level only. We should be able to dothe same." "I was afraid the discussionabout the three hundred-four hundred thousand commitmentwould come up soon.
