HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Army Secretary Stanley Resor, ex- iressing concern about the state of race relations in (lie service said Monday military commanders must pay more attention to .he sensitivities of black soldiers. In a speech prepared for the annual meeting of the Army Association, Resor said the mili- ary has to "re-examine our pol- cies and practices in terms of heir impact on the soldier as an ndividual." "We believe," he said, 'that )ne way to minimize racial ten ions in the Army is to make the Army as responsive as it can be to the needs of all its men." The black soldier "needs to mow from his leaders where hey stand, whether he can ex- ieet help from them, whether hey are willing to accept him vithout asking that he reject his icritage." The secretary also made clear he expects officers and noncommissioned officers to be ess rigid and to give leeway to he yearnings of both black and vliite soldiers for some individu- ilily. Resor added that the black oldier needs a commander who ecognizes sucli slogans as Black is beautiful" as a ges- uro of pride, comradeship and olidarity for most Negroes. "The commander must under- land his men before he writes ft the spirited ones;, who may be potential leaders, as trouble- makers or militants," Rtsor said. l: 0n the other hand, he mus be firm and ensure that his troops realize that discipline is not discrimination." While stating the Army lee the way in breaking down racial barriers, Resor acknowledgec that have black soldiers "clearly difficulties in the Army which are directly tied to their race." Among other things, Resor said, the Army "will give more recognition to the Negro's presence in the Army and the fact that he has a long military lieritage." The service secretary called for development of training films and «ther materials to promote racial understanding and for the availability of what he called "Negro-readership publications" in post exchanges and day rooms. The Army is the second service to move in the direction ol recognizing the desire of black servicemen for racial identity. Last summer, Gen. Leonard F. Chapman Jr., Marine Corps commandant, ruled that black Marines may wear a limited 'Afro", haircut if it is within Marine regulations. He also told his subordinates .0 be lenient when it comes to racial salutes and other ges- ,ures by blacks when not in formal ceremonies or on duty.

Resor on Monday outlined a broad pro;ram intended to lessen racial .ensions in the Army and insure jreater respect for an individual soldier's "social and personal needs." _The program includes re... sion of training programs and service school curricula, greater efforts to achieve off-post integration, and assignment of "personal responsibility" to military commanders to work toward racial their men. harmony among Resor urged unit commanders to look for leadership material among apparent "troublemakers or militants" rather lhan simply writing them off as malcontents. In the keynote speech to the annual convention of the Association of the U. S. Army, Resor said, "Today I must report o you, the state of race reia- ions in the Army gives cause or concern." Resor's speech came after a summer of periodic clashes be- .ween blacks and whites at several military bases. Although the Army "has led .he way in breaking down the formal barriers to racial inte- ;ration," he said, soldiers still jring into the Army the "prob- ems and prejudices" of a "society that is undergoing rapid change." Also, Resor said, the Negro soldier "is different today from lis counterpart of 10 years ago" and racial pride, more bitter- because he has "more persona ness at real or imagined injus tice" and is "more'likely tc make his resentment known.' The black soldier, Resor said "needs a commander who rec ognizes such slogans as 'black is beautiful' as the gestures o pride, comradeship and solidar ity that to most young Negroe they represent." An army commander, he said "must understand his men be fore he writes off the spiritei ones, who may be potentia leaders, as troublemakers o: militants. On the other hand, hi must be firm and insure that his troops realize that discipline i. not discrimination." While the Army demands "a neat appearance, a military bearing, hard work and disci pline," Resor said, "we do no ask our men to pretend the) are patterned from a singli mold. "In areas which affect thi individual, our policies and pro cedures should be rethought ti see which are essential to mill lary discipline and which are arbitrary or counterproductive causing men to leave the Army or to be less, rather than more effective."

While in the reserves he graduated from Southwestern State Teachers College in Weatherford, Okla. He spent three years of the Bronze Star for gallantry in combat. It was about this time according to Turner, that he became interested in guns as a collector. He has also seen service in Korea. The height of Turner's military career was when he was appointed Army provost marshal general in 1964. He retiree in 1968 to become chief U.S marshal, then resigned under pressure after the Senate probe was under way. Turner is married, the father of two children.

Other marriages will be Marriage is a subject the legislator must approach with care anywhere but in Tanzania where a score of races, creeds and castes live together, and marital law is a hideous tangle of religious and social susceptibilities. Rushing in where angels fear to tread, the Tanzanian government has embarked on a brave attempt to rationalize its country's welter of wedlock. In a White Paper published Sept. 9, the government announced its intention of bringing legislation aimed at ensuring that 'all marriages are given equal status and giving women a fair deal. This is no mere undertaking. At present, Christian monogamy, Muslim polygamy, Hindu child marriage and a kaleidoscope of tribal, customary and common law marriages exist side by side. The majority give women little or no say over the marriage, fa some tribal and Asian marriages the girl does not even have the right to refuse the groom who has been chosen for ber. Under the proposed new code all marriages will be voluntary. Both bride and groom will need lo consent to the union. If a man wants to change the status of his marriage, for instance if a Christian wishes to take a second wife, he first must obtain his first wife's consent. If this is obtained the second marriage will be legally recognized even if the previous wedding was solemnized in church. The position of the common aw wife will also be protected. [f a couple, lives together for more than two years the pro- »sed ordinance will deem them egally married and their children legitimate. At the same ime if either partner deserts :he other for more than five years the marriage will be le;ally ended. But the new proposals in no way tend to permissive society. Only a decree .of dissolution may end a marriage. Before receiving such a decree, any cou- )le wishing to part must first go o one of the marriage conciliation boards which are to be set up all over the country. Only if the board is satisfied that the marriage has completely broken down will a divorce be granted. After this a Muslim will be al- owed to pronounce the three ta- akas (I divorce thee) which vere previously the only formality required for a Muslim di-l dissolved by regular divorce iroceedings, following the ward's decision. The White Paper also suggests- raising the marriage age o 15 for girls and 18 for men and says that "corporal punishment" in marriage will be jarred. In African societies one of the major obstacles to marriage is )ride price which usually is paid in the form of many cattle or goats. Here the White Paper ledges. It says it does not intend to abolish the system but will introduce a "marry now-jay later" scheme. The government says it has no intention of interfering with .he freedom of the individual and his religious precepts but joints out that it has a duty to insure the equality of all human icings. Motivated by the best possible ntentions, the government is 'inding that you can't please all of the people all of the time. Many women, intended to be .he chief beneficiaries of the egislation, are not happy. Christian wives fear the new rcedom lo marry several wives vill threaten their position. There is concern that the two year cohabitation clause will ead many men to throw their partners out just before they could be deemed legally mar- ied. The churches are uneasy about the legislation's effect on .he sanctity of marriage vows and the Muslims are unhappy about losing easy divorce. The voluntary unions and age restrictions will upset the tribal and Asian communities where arranged marriages at a very early age form the basis of so- Wife beaters are incensed at lie prohibition of their sport. In publishing the White Paper, the.-government said it ,vanted to test public opinion be- ore enacting legislation. The furore it is likely to arouse may veil make them wish they had left well enough alone.
