Rev. Robert Gai-diner, co-or- dinatflr of a council program U) assist American draft evaders and military deserters coming to Canada, said the legislation had every appearance of origi- nating within the Nixon admin- istration, and hs predicted it would prove unacceptable to a vast majority of those it could affect. Introduced Start probe into beating of Indian OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Jean-Pierre Goyer told the Commons today he has started an investigation into the alleged fatal beating of an In- dian by a member of the RCMP at Williams Lake, B.C. Replying to Lincoln Alexander (PC Hamilton Mr. Goyer said he met a delegation of "Indian representatives from the area before the morning j Commons session. This allega-1 tion was discussed along wiUijlrOM. IO other matters and he was start- ing an immediate investigation. Mr. Alexander asked whether the RCMP member would be relieved of his duties pending the outcome of the investiga- tion. Mr. Goyer said he was look- Ing into what is the proper pro- cedure in such circumstances. Tuesday by Re- publican Senator Robert Taft Jr. of Ohio, the bill would allow evaders lo return to the U.S. without fear of prosecution if they agree to serve three years, in the armed forces as aides in hospitals or in a gov- ernment program to improve cities.

But it's a po- lilical football, an attempt to diffuse the issue with the ap- proach of the presidential elec- tion next year." He said the bill would do "ab- solutely nothing" for deserters who make up what he termed a significant proportion of Ameri- cans who have come to Canada to escape military service. NUMBERS UNCERTAIN Senator Taft estimated there were evaders in Canada, but Mr. Gardiner put the figure at about However, Dee Knight, an edi- tor of Amex, a Toronto maga- zine for American exiles, said the total would be between 70.000 and Both Mr. Gardiner and Mr. Knight predicted the bill would be viewed as "insulting" by most exiles in Canada. "It comes nowhere near deal- ing wilh tile reasons why they came here in the first said Mr. Gardiner, a 'former An- glican chaplain at Michigan State University. "The Vietnam war has not ended." Mr. Knight, a draft dodger who came to Canada 3V6 years ago from San Francisco, esti- mated deserters now make up nearly half of the exile popula- tion.

DESERTION DIFFERENT Deserters who got "caught up In the war before seeing it for what it was" included lesser-ed- ucated men who were finding it more difficult to adjust to life outside their own country. He said amnesty for draft dodgers would in many cases mean "freedom to visit grand- but "deserters, the people who need this most, aren't getting it." Generally, he added, exiles were "disappearing into the woodwork of Canadian taking Canadian jobs, marrying Canadian girls and fitting smoothly into the pattern of Ca- nadian life. Mr. Knight said he did not regard himself as a spokesman for exiles, but felt anv amnesty that did not apply "without pun- itive overtones" to all Ameri- cans who had left their country because of the selective service system would be unacceptable.
