Your Opinion, J*jegse Recall Petition ThoughtsVary ByNEOLAROSSMAN Question: What is your opinion of the attempt to recall Senator Frank Church? R. A. JOHNSON, Weiser: "I thinkSenator Church is all right. 1 don't believe this will do any good, I'm all for Church. I imagine this has hurt him to an extent, though." W1LUAM C. SCHAEFF.R JR., 1803 3rd St. S.: "I think this would be one of the best things that ever happened. I feel that he doesn't have the best interests of the American people at heart. Frankly, I'm against most of the government wehavenow. 1 fought in the Korean War, but 1 wouldn't want to go now. If you are going to fight, fight and get it over." TIM RUNKLE, 1104 llth St. S.: "I think he defends his point of view quite well. T/ve heaid him speak many times in public. I feel this attempt is a little silly. They should first of all define the law to see if this attempt is legal. My school government teachers always said it was, but all of a sudden there is some question. I doubt it will succeed because there is enough apathy by the voters ... 35,000 signatures is a lot to hope for and I understand this is how many they need." HUBERT WEIRICH, 216 21st Ave. S.: "I think it is a good idea. I think if the law is correct and the people have the right to recall than this should be the perogative of the voters. I dotibt this will happen political machinery being what it is, but it is a healthy idea." Aided by Servicemen NNC Senior ;; NAMPA - One of the keys to ;a successful outcome inthe Viet- ;nam struggle is the winning over 'of the people of the villages, Tand American servicemen devote "mtny hours of their spare time Lto this goal, declares an Idaho ·Marine, Major Barry Rust of ; Coeur d'Alene. · Rust, who recently returnedto .'the UnitedStatesafteral3-month '.tour of duty in Vietnam, said the help given the villagers is 'i troublesome thing to the Viet .Cong. "The Viet Cong definitely do not want these kindnesses shown," Rust said, "because they realize that once the people Building Remodeling Under Way NAMPA -- Work Is under way this week on the remodeling of have been won over, their cause is lost." "On the other hand," Rust sajd, "the Viet Cong do not respect any part of decency, and lives mean nothing to them. Then the people of the United States censure the military every time there are casualtiesamongcivil- ians." Rust served in Chu Lai on the China Sea. /'Each batjalion,' 1 he-said,:"sort of adopts a village ilk South', Vietnam, helping the natives in · many ways. Part of the hope for South Viet Nam Is to win the people in the villages, and the people of the United States know little of ihe value of this, or even that servicemen spend many, many hours of leisuretime in the villages. "The corpsmen hold sick call and the natives come from miles around for what relief they can get," Rust said. "Some of the more critical cases are taken to the hospital ship, but many are treated on the spot, out in the open."
