Kennedy hits joblessness Cupid and stork hurt the draft By NORMAN RUNNION WASHINGTON UPI A qualified 18yearold has about one chance in 10 of escaping the draft unless he gets help from both cupid and the stork the Defense Department says In a study of manpower re quirements for the armed serv ices it said chances are good that a young married man with children will escape the draft With rare exceptions no fathers have been called up since 1955 Even for the unmarried man chances are slightly better than in previous years that he will avoid the uniform The Defense Departm e n t study said that by mid1963 only 5000 out of 115 million qualified 26yearold single men will have avoided military service IN 1958 the figure was only 647 out of 11 million 26year olds The present military manpow er level is 25 million men The rough estimate is that the serv ices will need 500000 m e n a year including those who serve in six month training programs About 90000 of these will come from the draft and the rest through volunteers In the late 1960s a greater number of men will reach mil itary age This will mean that if other circumstances remain un changed chances will be even better that some qualified 18 to26yearolds will miss being drafted although the figure may not exceed 10 per cent of the group THIS YEAR 143 million men reached the age of 18 compared with 129 million last year Next year the figure will be 148 mil lion although in 1962 the figure will drop slightly to 143 million These men should be more than enough to fill the draft re quirements However 33 per cent of them will be rejected for physical or mental reasons An other 10 per cent including sci entists and engineers may be deferred for reasons in the na tional interest About 10 or 12 per cent will be deferred because of early par enthood THIS LEAVES less than half of the age group available for duty As the manpower situation eases the draft age goes up A few years ago 20yearolds were being called This yearT selec tive service boards are tapping 23yearolds The rise in the draft age con tributes toward raising the number of deferments for par enthood This year there were 120000 such deferments

to the newly admitted nations of Africa not to heed his voice In a speech for the UN Gen eral Assembly the Australian leader accused Khrushchev of trying to inflame the minds of the new leaders of Africa with shopworn slogans of imperial ism and colonialism I VENTURE to say it is an act of complete hypocrisy for a Communist leader to denounce colonialism as if it were an evil characteristic of the Western powers when the facts are that the greatest colonial power now existing is the Soviet Union it self Menzies declared He said President Eisenhower had taken a high line in op posing efforts of the Communist world to putthe African states in their own sphere of influence HE SAID in effect and I most respectfully agree that we are not to look at our new col leagues as if they were voters to be collected or as pawns in a vast international game but as independent coequal and Menzies added The new nations have not won their freedom only in order to barter it away It is offensive to them to regard them as po tential satellites The Menzies attack was the strongest yet mounted against the Communists by any repre sentative of the nonCommunist world It came in the midst of talk about new
