THURSDAY, MARCH IO./1966 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N MAY FORCE U. S. CUTS Senator Says De Gaulle Living In Dream World WASHINGTON -- UPI--Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., linking th« probleins of Frames and Viet Nam, said today that President Charles de Gaulle's NATO "eviction notice" may force the United States to cut its commitment to the defense of France. The Senate armed services committee member said t h a t talked bluntly about De Gaulle America's "will"--its "capacity! for calm, steady pursuit of pur-' poses"-helped to save Western Europe from Russia and is the key to saving Southeast Asia. Jackson said it is "time to stop talking so much about Viet Nam and to get on with the job we have to do there." But he BY FORUM SPEAKER French Plan To Quit NATO Defended Here By JOHN RIDDICK Citizen Staff Writer France is against the North Atlantic Treaty Organization because it believes the military organization no longer is in harmony with the times. NATO was needed in 1949 because at that time the United States had the power -- including the atomic bomb. President Charles de.Gaulle's government is making plans to get out of NATO. and his "challenge to the international commands of the At: antic Alliance." He said he supports Johnson's 'polite, swift, firm 'no' to De ;aulle" on the French President's bid to deal bilaterally on eorganizing the NATO al- iance. Jackson caljed dt "in ef- ect an eviction notice," and dded: "If President de Gaulle ex- ects fee United States to beg to keep its troops and bases in France, he is living in a dream world." The above comments on mat nation's views were made here . yesterday by Gerard de la Villes- brunne, counselor of the French Embassy in Washington. The second ranking spokesman for France in this country told a University of Arizona au, dience times have changed since 1949. Then, communism was a "tremendous threat," he said. It still must be watched'but the danger is not so acute, said Villesbrunne. HE SAID European countries want more autonomy, ; and France wants to be the master · of its own fate and is afraid of being dragged into World War III by events with which it disagrees. Integration directed by the United States means "the American engine drags the cars/ said Villesbrunne. In particular, Villesbrunne said, France does not like defense on its own soil to be under the control of any power but its own. Nothing militarily is done in Great Britain without its approval and "what is good for Great Britain is good for us,".said Villesbrunne, adding' that Spain had; similar power over the American ,air bases. ON THE OTHER HAND, "France believes in the Atlantic Alliance. We remain .your - allies, and would prove it if anything happens in Europe," he said. Most problems between the U.S. and France arise because "you are big and-we are small," he said. "It is naive to believe that there''can be a partnership between! a giant and a midget." Villesbrunne was a speaker al a forum on France sponsored by the Student Union Activities Board. MAKING AN EFFORT to help Americans see French policies from the French perspec live, he said it is not true thai France does not want American investments. However, France wants these investments where they are needed and not where America already has great control. "You.wouldn't want a_foreign majority of ownership in your automotive industry," Villes brunne said. ON THE ISSUE that De Gaulle is France, Villesbrunne argued that, to the contrary France is a'democracy that has at least found the means of governing. Asked to come to power when the nation faced the threat of ?ivil War, De Gaulle brought itability, restored the economy, solved the Algerian" crisis and ·ended colonialization, Villes- mnne said. He said the Common Market supported by France is.an instrument which eventually can ead to political unity and then Surope can be a true partner as an equal with the United States. FRANCE DID NOT bar Great Britain from the-Common Marcet, the counselor said. Great Britain barred itself by not join- .ng in the beginning and setting up a competitive organization said Villesbrunne. :He added that he believed the British eventually will join'.. Villesbrunne said a new France is evolving -- with pros perity in which the French give credit to the Marshall Plan, in which women have equality in voting and bank accounts, an in which the young are taking leadership. Atty. Gen. Smith Asked For GI Auto Tax Opinion The problem of what to do I vision, said exempting service- Police Chase Figure Sent To Hospital Gerald F. Rosinski, a forme: city, police sergeant charge with reckless driving and ob structing justice after he crashed near a highway patrol roadblock, was committed to he Arizona State Hospital, today. His commitment to the Phoenix hospital was ordered by Superior Court Judge Mary Anne Richey following a sanity heaping at Pima County Hospital. Rosinski was confined to the local hospital and examined by psychiatrists on a petition signed by his wife after he eluded patrolmen during a high- speed chase on Tucson's North and East sides March 2. The 30-year-old ex-police officer, who listed his address as 9017 Kirkpatrick Circle, w a s pursued by lawmen from four agencies after a highway patrolman clocked his sports car at more than 100 miles an hour on the Casa Grande Highway, authorities said. When a road block was set up, investigators added, Rosinski crashed the car into an embankment in an attempt to drive around it. Then he sped off .ir a highway patrol car, evaded searching lawmen, and aban- about servicemen's auto lieu taxes, an item of concern for weeks to Pima County Assessor A. E. Bade, is now in the state's lap. The various county assessors around the state have called on Atty. Gen. Darrell Smith for an opinion. fax p r o t e s t s have arisen among some servicemen following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in January that prohibits states from charging servicemen a revenue-producing tax. THE HIGH C O U R T said servicemen were immune from the taxes and are only subject to those taxes which are "essential to the host state's licensing and registration laws." Bade several weeks ago requested an opinion of his county attorney but that action apparently is being superseded by the latest state development. No local estimate has been made of probable tax losses to the state. BILL NORRIS, manager of the Maricopa County auto license di- men could mean the loss of $100,* 000 in revenue in his county. Pima's principal military registration is from Davis-Monthan AFB. Williams and Luke Air Force bases and Litchfield Naval Air Facility are all located in Maricopa County. Other counties likely to be hurt if the protests are upheld are Yuma, with a Marine base and Army proving ground, and Cochise, with Ft. Huachuca. A LUKE AFB spokesman refused to speculate on the effect of the ruling. "It's an individual problem with each person," he said. ·The Supreme Court's decision was based on the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act of 1940, which prohibits host states from levying personal property taxes on visiting servicemen. The lieu tax is distributed equally between the state general fund, counties, county school districts and incorporated cities and towns. War Grimes Prosecution Timeless? UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. - (f) -- A U.N. study reports that under the latest interpretations of international law there can be no time limit on the prosecution of war crimes, or crimes against peace and humanity. The study was prepared under the direction of Secretary- general U Thant and will be considered by the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, now in session at U.N. Headquarters. The issue has been a hot one for West Germany, where the cabinet last year approved extending the statute of limitations for prosecution of war criminals for 10 years more. The 20-year limitation was due to expire May 8,1965. The U.N. study said that the proper solution to the problem is "an international one, binding on all states and not only on those which are directly concerned today with the punishment of 'Nazi crimes.'" Chiropractic Test Labs For Drugs Advocated The chiropractic profession should set up laboratories in cooperation with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to help curb the indiscriminate use of drugs, Dr. James Di- Fieiro of Tucson contends. Currently president of the Arizona Chiropractic Association, he said today that he would try to have a resolution to that effect introduced by the Arizona delegate at the national chiropractic convention in June at Los Angeles. DiPietro recently hit hard at the medical profession and pharmaceutical firms on the subject of drugs at a meeting of the County Chiropractic Society. There is a tendency among manufacturers to make "many claims in favor of a drug while making the deleterious and side effects seem insignificant," he stated. '.. He also spoke of the downgrading of the cancer drug Krebiozin by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the FDA as "a classical le o? condsinnsstkffi without investigation." He asked: "If Krebiozin effective in the treatment is of cancer, and there is evidence that it Is (at least it's as effective as any other treatment advocated by the AMA), and cancer victims are being deprived of this drug, how can the AMA and FDA justify their position on this controversy?" The best solution to the drug problem "is to have the National Chiropractors Associations set up laboratories, and with the cooperation of the FDA, test all drugs and make the results known to the public," DiPietro suggested.
