Palm Beach Post-Times, D4 Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 Many U.S. Deserters Unhappy STOCKHOLM (UPI) The leader of the 200 American 'servicemen who deserted and. sought asylum in Sweden says that many of the deserters are ' unhappy, 'but will stick out' their self-imposed exile. William C. Jones, 21, of St. Louis, Mo., deserted from the U.S. field hospital In Permas-en.West Germany, last January. He came to Sweden and banded together with other deserters protesting the war in Vietnam to form the American Deserters Commit-tee- (ADC), which he says now has about 50 active members and "political aspira-. Hons." The brown-haired youth told UPI that many of the desert- ers long to return to the United States but that most of them" expect to, remain In Sweden Indefinitely, until "there has been a change In American society." He said, smiling faintly, that he believed the time would come, "but of course we are dealing with a historical development." A major problem for the deserters Is money, since the majority of them are Jobless, although many have been In Sweden more than a year. "There Is dissatisfaction among the deserters because they are without Jobs," he said. "I think the discontent will be much less when they all have learned Swedish and can be employed." He added that authorities and individuals who In the beginning helped the American servicemen get along now are beginning to lose Interest. The ADC meets once a week . to discuss common problems and activities. Jones said they have been discussing starting a farm where most of the deserters could work, but "this has proved difficult to realize" because of lack of aid. He said there also had been a snag in the relationship with the Swedish Vietnam Committee and claimed that "certain circles" did not like to see the deserters keep together. He did not name them. "We want to keep the ADC Intact as a community and a political force which can be used to encourage others from taking part in the dehumanizing war in Vietnam," Jones said. One money boon for the deserters has been a movie on their life Just completed at a cost of half a million kronor ($100,000). Jones and another deserter, Ennts James Dotson, 22, of Eallinger, Tex., have leading, roles in the movie and several, other deserters also took part, but under assumed names. The feminine lead is played by Swedish actress Lotta af Geij-erstam. Tomas Dyfverman, producer of the movie expected to debut in Stockholm, In Febru-ary, called It "a factual narration of the deserters' lives in Sweden." It is a co-production of young director Lars Lambert and one of Sweden's biggest movie companies, San-drew Films. The film, which also will be distributed abroad, is intended to show what lies behind the men's desertion and their experiences after. "The plot is about agents who try to Infiltrate the ADC and break it up," Jones said, "but it is not a thriller and It is more a feature film than a dorumentarv." He said the ADC had already received 5,000 kronor ($1,000) for participating in the film and the deserters will get eight per cent of the movie's revenue. "This money Is really needed," Jones said. He added that the ADC also receives donations and other financing from the sale of its publications, "The Second Front" and "The Second Front Review." . "We have contacts with peace committees and other groups In the United States, Europe and Japan," he said. He complained that parents and other people abroad try to "lure" deserters back to the United States. One method he mentioned was parents "claiming that relatives are dying or seriously 111." The deserter said he was not concerned about penalties for his act, and that despite the five-year maximum prison term for desertion, he knew "several cases where the deserters have gotten up to six months." While some of the 200 deserters have been Jailed for theft, narcotics smuggling and other crimes, most have behaved ' themselves In Sweden and 105 of them officially have been, granted asylum on "humanitarian grounds." But the flow of deserters to Sweden seems to have declined considerably and several GIs have returned to the United States voluntarily. For them, Sweden was not the an-' swer. i 1 DISCOUNT DEPARTMENT STORES r.:-.-t Mu rir iter ttuk ifw Dacron'Ninori f., Tier Curtains 3 Prs. i1 in rrn'fe m -j--t kr-iLai-li,' I3rt Lap and Bed Tray Armstrong Cleaning Aids $ c 8D"Wx24"L Du Pont Docron polyester Ninon tiers Need no ironing ever 80"Wx36"l..1.88pr. 80"Wx63"l..2.88pr, 80"Wx72"l..3.8BPr. 80"Wx81"l..3.88pr.
