Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHDHinor HI-HAI r> Wednesday, January S, U.S. launches amnesty program WASHINGTON (AP) With only three weeks left for men to sign up for the amnes- ty program for convicted draft evaders and deserters, the presidential clemency board launched a radio- television campaign throughout the United States Monday to get word to those who are eligible. Board chairman Charles Goodell said only 900 have signed up with the board out of the eligible, mainly because many don't know they are eligible. Goodell announced at a news conference that the board is mailing to all radio and television stations in the United States tapes telling about the program and urging the stations to play .them often AII 111 IAI SHOES ANNUAL I Discounts 10% to 50% (Except on Nurses'Clinic Shoes and Clarke's Wallabees) ALL WINTER BOOTS REDUCED ALL HANDBAGS REDUCED STERLING SHOES 320A-61H St. S., Lefhbridge, Alberta Phone 327-3349 Some days we don't sell any insurance.

"It would be an additional service if your station an- nouncer could do a count- i.e., only 14 more days left to apply to the presiden- tial clemency said a letter Goodell sent to each station with the tapes. The deadline is Jan. 31. A 30-second and a 60-second tape were made for radio and TV stations by two board members, retired marine general Lewis Walt and Rev. Theodore Hesburgh. Another member, Aida Casanas O'Connor, taped the message in Spanish for 73 Spanish- speaking radio stations. Goodell said in answer to questions that he does not ex- pect Ford to extend the Jan. 31 deadline. But he conceded that a good response to the broadcast campaign might be a reason to extend it. The chairman also made public the names, but not the hometowns, of 47 men granted pardons or conditional amnes- ty by Ford last week. The terms of alternative service assigned those with conditional clemency ranged from three months to a year. Goodell said that, so far, the board has not given anybody more than a year's service. It is possible to assign up to .two years.- Goodell said that "less than five" applicants have been re- jected for either a pardon or a conditional amnesty so far. And in both groups of pardons and amnesty granted, he said, Ford has followed all board recommendations. Rejecting a suggestion that the program "is a Goo- dell said the low sign-up is caused partly by "mistrust" of the government, confusion and "an obsession" with the draft evaders and deserters in Canada. The men in Canada, he ex- plained, are nut eligible for the board's program. They come under programs ad- ministered by the defence department for untried deserters and by the justice department for untried draft evaders. His program, Goodell said, "has to do with those who stayed here and paid the price." Mounties fired 'on whim' MONTREAL (CPi-A for- mer RCMP intelligence of- ficer told a government in- quiry Monday he was dismiss- ed summariiyjrom the force after 20 years service for "bucking the system." Doii McCleery, 40, told the commission investigating the RCM'P's handling of citizens' complaints .and internal procedures that he and fellow officer Sgt-.' Gilles Brunei were fired Dec. "on a whim.'1 Mr. McCleery, who was'a staff sergeant in charge of counter-espionage in C Divi- sion in Montreal, said he was the target of several investigations because of his friendship with Mitchell Bronfman, a Montreal businessman. Mr. McCleery said he met Mr. Bronfman through Mr. Brunei three years ago and he had often used Mr. Bronfman in his intelligence work. "He was co co operating; we were using him as a source." By mid-1972, the businessman "was probably niy closest friend outside the lorce." said Mr. McCleery, now employed by Mr. Bronfman in a security con- sulting firm. Mr. McCleery was asked in June.. 1972, to supply his superiors with a statement describing his acquaintance with Mr Bronfman. The tailor's name had cropped up at an inquiry into organized crime where it was linked to that of an underworld figure, and RCMP authorities became concerned about the relationship. Before befriending the busi- nessman, Mr. McCleery said, he and Mr. Brunei had check- ed him out in organized crime, terrorist and subversive records and found nothing. "There was no evidence of wrongdoing on his Mr. McCleery said. "I knew where the information was coming NCIU." The NCIU, or. National Crime Intelligence Unit, is the criminal side of the RCMP in- lelligence service, Mr. McCleery said, "and it's staff- ed by a majority of in- competents." Police polish image In an effort to polish their image, police in Offenbach, West Germany have come up with a poster showing a bulldog wearing a police officers' hat Police say they want to feature a bulldog's "fellowship, faith, fondness of children and reliability" as police characteristics.
