Lorrin F. his Now yet to meet draft chief reports volunteer plan still By CHARLES TURNER Advertiser StaH Writer Selective Service Director Curtis W. Tarr, fresh from talks with U.S. servicemen in Vietnam, said here yesterday: "I don't think there's any question that we need to withdraw our forces from active combat before there is a possibility for an all-volunteer force to work." TARR SPOKE to newsmen at" Honolulu Airport shortly after his arrival from Southeast Asia, where he had gone to talk to American Gls about their "attitudes, motivation, hopes and problems" as they related to a volunteer armed force. Tarr repeated what he told newsmen in Saigon as he completed his tour of American military bases in Vietnam, saying: "The only point I tried to make in Saigon was that unless we're withdrawn from a combat situation, it's impossible, I think, to make an all-volunteer force work. "THE INFORMATION behind this point, I think, is simply this: "At the present time, we get a considerable number of true volunteers. But these true volunteers are almost never for combat jobs. "We know that nine out of 10 people who serve in combat units . . . are there because the draft put them there." Tarr said he found it interesting that the young men in each place he visited were Maui Chamber opposes bill on mayoral powers WAILUKU General opposition in Maui County to Mayor Elmer F. Cravalho's proposed ordinance to grant emergency powers to his office was indicated yesterday by action of the Maui Chamber of Commerce board of directors. They voted unanimously to oppose the ordinance, on a motion by realtor George Ezaki and seconded by Ron Vaught, manager of Radio KNUI. When the Chamber directors acted, it had been reported that a group associated with Eric Brown Pauwe-la organic farmer and rock-concert promoter was organizing a Maui chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union to oppose Cravalho's proposed ordinance. WEBB BEGGS JR., Chamber manager, said yesterday: "We originally approved with reluctance the so-called 'strong mayor' provisions of the Maui County Charter, feeling the charter granted possibly too much power to the mayor. "Now he is proposing what we feel are practically dictatorial powers for his office what would amount to martial law, in the event of the emergencies defined in the proposed ordinance. "We feel the Council should not approve any such powers for the mayor." THE ORDINANCE, as presented to the County Council Dec. 4, would create a new chapter in the County ordinances entitled "Emergency Powers of the Mayor." today's chuckles' A small girl in a very progressive school stamped her foot and snarled at her teacher, "Do I have to do as I please again today?" FISHERMAN: Man who spends rainy days sitting around on the muddy banks of rivers doing nothing, because his wife won't let him do it at home. Tarr, followed by Hawaii Selective Service director Col. Henry Oyasato, intrigued with the possibilities of an all-volunteer force. HOWEVER, HE SAID, they were not "sanguine" or ardently optimistic about it. Tarr said he got a lot of suggestions from the U.S. servicemen and their leaders on how the Armed Forces could reduce their dependency on the draft. The ordinance draft was referred for study to the Council's committee of the whole and is not expected to be taken up by that committee until after Christmas and New Year's. THE DRAFT says there have been "widespread public disorders . . . throughout the nation," and it postulates that "there exists in the County of Maui a possibility that similar disorders may take place." The ordinance w-ould authorize the mayor to declare a state of emergency if the County suffers from or is threatened with "civil disturbance, riot, epidemic, or other occurrence" that might endanger the "health, safety, welfare and property of the County." The mayor thorized to ' would limit" be au- public gatherings; in effect, to quarantine any part of the County: to set curfews for any public travel; to close bars and prohibit liquor sales anywhere in the County, including tourist hotels; to regulate the sale of gasoline or "other inflammable liquids"; and to closely regulate the sale and possession of firearms or other weapons or potential weapons. Violaters would be subject to a $1,000 fine or a year in prison, or both. a merry yule for hijackers HOUSTON (UPI) A Nei-man-Marcus delivery truck loaded with a half million dollars worth of Christmas presents was hijacked yesterday when the driver stopped to check a street address. The truck was found about three hours later behind an apartment house 1 blocks away. Detective T. F. McKinney said the truck was partly unloaded but he did not know whether the thieves made off with the most expensive items. Alphonso Bryant, 60, the driver, said one gift was valr ued at 30,000. He told police the overall value was $500,000. & 1 1 f 3 I X Mi V Most of them will require considerable time to accomplish, he said. One of the most consistent suggestions was in the line of improved pay, Tarr said, while other changes were "more subtle than pay itself." AS AN EXAMPLE, Tarr said, there was a suggestion that young men in their first enlistment should be able to take their wives to isolated places where they were assigned. Tarr said this would be possible only if the government would make arrangements to transport the wives to their husbands outposts. far-flung AND COAT It also would bring up housing problems, he said. "In many places," Tan-said, "housing arrangements for young men in the Armed Forces are inadequate." HE SAID THIS was an un man arrested on WAIMEA, Hawaii A 21-year-old Arizona man was arrested here yesterday for failing to report for the draft.

Asked again about the tlraft charge failing to report for induction. Baker has lived here more than a year, the FBI said. He was arraigned before U.S. Commissioner Mark Norman Olds in Hilo and was released on his own recognizance pending further court action.

"I THINK IT would be foolish to attempt it by terminating the President's authority to induct." Newsmen asked what he thought about the chances of the draft law being extended by Congress next year and he said: "I think it's very important to the national security that it does take place." He said he felt it was "vital to the defense of our nation for us to continue to induct young men" and warned that if Congress fails to extend the draft: ". . .the immediate consequence will be that we will not have the young men we need in order to support the Armed Forces." HE DECLINED to speculate, however, on the military consequences of such a rebuff to the draft. Tarr, who stands 6 feet 6 inches, was confronted by five women carrying placards reading: "Aloha Also Means Goodby: Draft Expires June 3071" and "The Draft is Dividing the Nation." Another sign said merely: "End the Draft." Tarr declined to talk to the women, three of whom were carrying small children. They identified themselves as being from the Hawaii Council to Repeal the Draft. One of them, Kay Lampard, told reporters: "The idea we have to have a draft to get out of Vietnam honorably is a disgrace to the military. There are IVz million career soldiers in the Army. It's very hard to understand what all those men are doing in the military." 4.50. BOYS' COTTON -m . ,tm
