Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - June 10, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant news partly Cloudy iwo sections vol. 92, no. 136 it pleasant Iowa wednesday evening june to 1970 Price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain the Young misread Nixon s intentions or. Martin Anderson the Columbia University economist who proved by analysis that the Federal Bulldozer had destroyed Mon Homes than a Urban renewal had managed to build has had the Job of justifying to president Nixon the Case for a voluntary army. He has been at it Ever since the 1968 Campaign. And making due allowance for the difficulty of changing Over from the draft to Volunteer recruitment in the Middle of a War his logic has convinced the president. The strange thing is that the Young of America who claim they have a special right to pronounce on politics hardly know of Martin Andersons existence. If they had followed or. Andersons fight As a White House adviser to set the stage for the presidential commission on an All Volunteer Force which has concluded unanimously that the draft should go they would have to admit that Richard Nixon is the Only president within living memory who has actively repudiated the Basic idea of conscription Nixon in Short is a their Man a As he proved when he said on april 23 that a with an end to the draft we will demonstrate to the world the responsiveness of Republican government a and our continuing commitment to the maximum Freedom for the individual enshrined in our earliest traditions and founding How is it that the Young on the campuses of America fail to read Richard Nixon correctly partly it derives from a sense of guilt the undergraduates have been beating the draft through the system of College deferments where their less favored Brothers have been conscripted after High school and they have sought Refuge from self loathing in an unrealistic concept of a instant politics a thinking that immediate abolition of the War in Southeast Asia would absolve them of their shame in taking favors in a life and death matter from the government. The trouble with a instant politics is that it makes no allowance for what Richard Nixon was handed by his predecessors a War at an 8.000-mile distance involving 500.000 u. S. Soldiers whom it would require Many months to extricate without Selling out our friends and indeed risking a debacle at the last beachhead. Nixon has sought to Combine Honor under the name of a Viet with the fulfilment of his mandate to get american soldiers off the asian Mainland. A prudent concept of evacuation logistics is part of his thinking if it took the japanese eight months to get their troops out of China in 1945-46, it will take us even longer to wind up our ground troop participation in the indo China War authorize study of larger school Board a committee to study expansion of the it.

Guests of other nationalise students preoccupied with a instant politics a have been Blind to our defensive aspect of liquidating the Viet Cong North vietnamese hold on the cambodian flank we build up the South vietnamese in preparation for our departure. The students have been even More Blind to Nixon a timetable in going Over to a voluntary army. As Nixon has said the draft a cannot be ended All at once it must be phased out so that we can be certain of maintaining our defense strength at every the idea is to reduce draft Calls to Zero Over a period of time. The desire for a voluntary armed Force is intertwined with budgetary realities pay increases to entice Young men into the army of their own free will must not Force an inflation that would make it impossible to offer real continuing financial inducements to volunteers. The Nixon proposition is to give a retroactive pay increase for members of the armed forces right away and to follow it up with additional increases in 1971 and 1972. The sum marked for 1972 is an extra two Bil lion dollars for added pay and other benefits. Thus the stage will be Sot for the formal ending of conscription without in the meantime depriving ourselves of an army too there Are those who say that Money will never attract enough soldiers to defend the Republic even after . Ground troops have been withdrawn from the asian Mainland. And there Are those who say that every Young Man should acknowledge his responsibility to defend the nation.
