Leaven worth By GINNY PITT Associated Press Writer The first Army deserters freed from prison under President Ford's conditional clemency plan have left Ft. Leavenworth in Kansas on 30-day temporary home parole. In Fayetteville, N.C., 28 men were sent home on Thursday from ft. Bragg, and four draft evaders were released from Seagoville federal •prison near Dallas^ At Leaven worth, officials said 95 men were scheduled for processing through the clemency board after filing petitions for clemency. A spokesman at Seagoville said 30 to 40 others in the district were eligible for clemency. Seventeen men remained in stockade at Ft. Bragg until it is determined whether they qualify for the program, officials said. Pentagon officials in Washington said 364 military deserters had inquired about clemency by Thursday, and a Justice Department spokesman said 233 draft evaders and 59 desert-' ers had called for information. Federal officials said the number of men who qualify for clemency throughout the nation is not known. U.S. attorneys in most areas of the country continued to receive telephone calls on Thursday about the clemency program—mostly anonymous. In New York, pollster Louis Harris said on Thursday that there has been a sharp increase in the number of persons who favor a clemency program re- Mrs. Peron quiring deserters and draft evaders to perform two years of national service. He said a poll of 1,527 persons early this month showed 56 per cent favored a program along the lines of the President's, and 36 per cent opposed it. Harris said last January the public supported a similar position by 45 to 43 per cent. Those polled recently opposed blanket amnesty 53 to 37 per cent, Hard ris said. Last January the public was opposed to blanket amnesty 56 per cent to 30 per cent. LET'S REFLECT He who strikes the first blow confesses that he has run out of ideas. Selected from Apples of Gold.

(AP) "Water is one natural resource that we'll never run out of,*' according to Robert B. Hilbert, president of the American Water Works Assn. "Unlike other natural resources," says Hilbert, "we have as much water available today as we did thousands of years ago. And we'll have just as much in 2074 as we have today." He noted that the increasing need to recycle water is generally not because of water shortages. BUENOS AIRES (AP) Seeking to emulate the tactics of her late husband and his first wife, President Isabel Peron scheduled an address today from the balcony of the presidential palace in an attempt to rally Argentine's workers against the terrorist threat to her goverment. The General Labor Confederation ordered its 2% million members to stop work for eight hours to swell the crowd for Mrs. Peron, But it was doubtful that her speech would whip up the frenzied enthusiasm commanded on every appearance by the late Juan D. Peron and his dynamic blonde firsi wife, Evila. Mrs. Peron's plea for support follows a week of violence in which 11 persons died, more .nan lOQ bombs exploded, and i wo weaUhy brothers were kid- naped by Lhe Montoneros.
