Chairman Charles Goodel] said he had canceled a three-day meeting of the board this week so^members could visit such cities as Boston, New Y o r k , Chicago and Los Angeles to spread the word about the clemency program. Goodell also said the b o a r d had w r i t t e n a m e m o r a n d u m to President Ford requesting an extension of up to six months in the clemency aspect of Ford's earned re-entry program. The program, announced by Ford last Sept. 16, is due to expire Jan. 31. The Clemency Board, , which deals o n l y w i t h 'those already convicted and punished for civilian d r a f t r e s i s t a n c e or absence-related offenses within the military during the Vietnam era, has a potential clientele of 120,000: ", Goodell told a news conference that his board had "experienced a t r e m e n - dous " u p s u r g e in applications" s i n c e the start of its radio-television campaign Jan. 6. . "In the last 10 days alone, applications have doubled," he said. A Roman Catholic leader, meanwhile, called the re-entry program "a failure ... because it is not and never was intended to be a true amnesty'.' Father Joseph A. Francis, president of the Conf e r e n c e of M a j o r Superiors of Men, said a universal and unconditional amnesty "should be passed as soon as possible d u r i n g t h e 9 4 t h Congress."
