THURSDAY, JANUARY 1«, 19W f Affil TBRM SIGNI.S'O UP FOK SKRVICB — Pentagon's proposed IKW pl«n put. Itw emphasis on reserve duly. New Military Service Plan Gives Young Man Six Choices By DOUGLAS LAKSEN , NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (NEA)—If Con- srcss passes the new military service'.program proposed by the Pentagon, every able-bodied young mar. in the U. S. will be faced with .hair a dozen basic choices of duty. The architects of the master reserve plan have tried to strike a fine balance between advantages and disadvantages of each. The brand new clioice is to volunteer lor six months of active training in the Army or Marine Corps before the 19th birthday. After training there's seven and a half to nine and a half years of active reserve service left, depending upon how well the man does his reserve chores. The big advantage OJ this !6 jetting active duty over with fast. The disadvantages are only S30 per month pay while in uniform, no veteran's benefits, and the possibility of being called back to active duty any time during a :imited emergency. Also, only 100,000 men can get in this program, so there's a chance of not. making it, being drafted, and existing in an uncertain status for more than a year. Another relatively new choice is volunteering for eight years of combined active-reserve ' status in the Navy or Air Force. The Navy requires two years of active duty and the Air Force four years under this plan. Advantages are regular pay, better reserve assignments later, postponement of active duty for up to 24 months, and veteran's benefit*. A man can still wait It out nnd be dratted. This means two years active duty with six years in an 'active reserve outfits-involving the chance of active duty during a limited emergency. Advantages of this choice are numerous. The man gets full military pay and allowances, veteran's benefits and a better chance of a good reserve assignment. With reduced calls a man u'lio waits for the draft miRhl gel in several years of college before being taken. service helpful jobs. is becoming increasingly toward getting civilian The thinking behind different periods of active duty among the services Is that rtavy and Air Force are more attractive to the average young man. Another assumption is that the longer the period of active duty a man serves, the less time he should be held responsible for reserve duty. Another area o( choice to a young man is enrollment in the ROTC programs available at colleges. After graduation the young officer must then spend at least two years on active duty and an indefinite period on reserve status. The most important goal of this program is strengthening the serv- ices' reserve programs and the National Guard units of the states. The ,NG will get a share of the men who elect the six months of training. These men will work out the balance of their nine and a half years of commitment by drilling and serving with Guard units. The Guard will also get other men who complete active duty with the Army who elect that means of working off their reserve commitment. They will have to drill regularly and participate fully in Guard activities Service in the active reserve units of the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force will include periodic meetings and drill and sessions at summer camp. Attendance and performance in the reserves will be rigidly supervised. Presbyterian Merger Chances Are Dimmed PHILADELPHIA. I/PI The chances of a merger of the three United States branches of the Presbyterian Church appeared somewhat dim today its the result of opposition from Southern presbyteries. The union would unite the three groups now in the process of voting on the proposal, the United Presbyterian Church, the Presbyterian Church In the U.S.A. and the Presbyterian Church in the United States (Southern). They have a combined membership of about 3Va million. Unanimous approval of the three is necessary. Thirteen Southern presbyteries have voted on the issue and 12 have opposed 11. A three-quarters majority of the 84 presbyteries In the Southern branch is necessary for the group's approval. Only ten more negative votes are thus needed among the Southern presbyteries to kill the plan and one of their leaders said Saturday, "We'll get those in the next two weeks.
