"Such a dramatic, humanitar- ian initiative would c r e a t e, worldwide, an expectation of re- sponse in kind by the Commun- ist said the Michigan lie- publican. Griffin said he expects the I proposal to receive a sympa- thetic response from the Nixon administration. "I would suggest that the prisoners be released well be- fore Tel. the Vietnamese new year, which comes at the end of j he said. "I believe it is appropriate, as jhn holiday season approaches, for our side to demonstrate through this dramatic and mov- ing gesture our deep conviction, expressed by President Nixon, (lint all prisoners-of-war have suffered too much." takes out citizenship MELBOURNE, Australia (Reuter) Barnard Bycrs, a teacher from Philadelphia. believes he may be the first American Negro to tsie out Australian citizenship.

New facial hair stylings for Canadian soldiers OTTAWA (CP) Service- men's lib is a soldier wearing a beard or a sailor wearing a no beard. These manifestations of a new era in facial hair stylings for the forces '.rill be seen on the street as a revised admin- istrative order soon to be is- sued takes effect. Already, servicemen who know about the order talk of terms 'of some kind of "libera- tion." Traditionally, only sailors and infantry pioneers were al- lowed to grow a beard and moustache. The last group is typically represented by a log- ging battalion. All other servicemen with hirsute tendencies had to he content with simply a mous- tache. And a sailor couldn't go running around with a moustache and no chin foli- age. It just didn't accord with custom, you see. Now, a soldier, sailor or air- man will be able to cultivate a moustache by itself or a beard and moustache to- gether. NO INCOMPLETE LOOKS But no serviceman will be permitted to grow a beard without a moustache. Said a defence department spokes- man, "A beard without mous- tache just doesn't look com- plete." Unit commanders will have authority to veto a moustache or beard in particular cases, citing, as the order puts it, "operational, safety and func- tional requirements." For instance a tradesman working at a lathe might be denied permission to grow a beard. So might a pilot flying ,-e 10.000 feet, where a beard or moustache might in- terfere with oxygen equip- ment. Furthermore, beard-grow- ers can't be seen in uniform in public "until (lie beard has grown to a presentable length. i AH donalc.s (oin nllcclion VIC SFi CVi A collec- tion it lhan ancient j t n s the Univer-l Car!
