BRIDGE WASHINGTON (AP> - Maj. Arch E. Roberts was ordered deprived of his active Army commission and returned to civilian life Friday as a result of a speech he made before the Daughters of the American Revolution lasi week. Secretary of the Army Elvis J. Stahr Jr. took the action “because of improper statements made by Maj. Roberts in an uncleared speech,” he said. Roberts, declaring Stahr’s order means loss of his pension rights, said he will appeal “I can ob^t to tbese orcfert and do not have to consent to them.” he told a reporter. “I expected a hearing and I still expect a hearing. My portion has never been revealed, except to the dear ladies in the DAR, God bless ‘em." he added. Roberts delivered an impromptu talk at the DAR convention April 19 after the Pentagon reused ¡to approve the formal speech he had prepared for the occasion. In his off-the-cuff remarks, Rob. ton 55.
