MARINES Maltreatment of Recruits Is Continuing, Sources Say SAN DIEGO-The maltreatment of boot camp recruits by drill sergeants at the Marine Corps training depot here was continued in the wake of the scandal arising from the fatal beating of a mentally retarded youth seven months ago, official sources have acknowledged. Since Pvt. Lynn E. McClure, 29, of Lufkin, Tex., was clubbed to the ground last Dec. 6, there have been at least 33 other cases in which drill instructors have been punished for abusing recruits, are awaiting court-martial or have been suspended. The 33 incidents are in addition to charges brought against six Marines, three of them officers, for allowing McClure to be knocked unconscious during mock bayonet combat with 12-pound pugil sticks while he was on probation in a since-disbanded "motivation" platoon. PUGIL STICK BOUTS are still taking a toll of injuries at the San Diego Recruit Depot, with 18 casualties reported since Jan. 1, none of them fatal. A spokesman for the base commander, Maj. Gen. Kenneth J. Houghton, confirmed that courts-martial for maltreatment were "running at double last year's rate. The charges range from hazing, harassment and "borrowing" of money from recruits to dereliction of duty, violation o! training regulations and aggravated assault. The court-martial' of the second drill sergeant in the McClure case, Staff Sgt. Contribution Of Alcoa Cited In Jamaica KINGSTON Jamica (AP) nthe ruling People's National party of Jamaica received a $20,000 campaign contribution from the Aluminum Company of American in 1972, according to the party's finance chairman. DeRoulet, who died last year, was trying to prevent nationalization of American bauxite interests in Jamaica, U.S. sources said. Bauxite is the raw material from which aluminum is made. ALCOA is the world's largest aluminum company and Jamaica is the world's second largest producer of bauxite. * * · REYNOLDS METALS CO., another large aluminum producer, also contributed to both political parties, Labor Party secretary Bruce Golding said. Corporate contributions are legal under Jamaican law, both parties said. The U.S. State Department has said there was no indication of illegality in DeRoulet's involvement. The contribution by Alcoa to the National People's party came during the 1972 election, which brought Prime Minister Michael Manley to power, finance chairman William Isaacs said Friday night. In 1973, Manley demanded that DeRou- let leave the country after he told a congressional committee he had made a deal with the prime minister. DeRoulet said he had promised the United States would not get involved in the 1972 Jamaican election if Manley did not push for nationalization if elected. Manley denied agreeing to any such deal./^ 3 By Everett R. Holmes flew York Times Service Henry C. Wallraff. 27, of St. Croix, Minn., will be resumed Monday before a four- man special court on three charges of dereliction of duty.. Wallraff was watch supervisor on Dec. 6 of the special training battalion that included the disciplinary motivation platoon and four other platoons made up of various types of "problem" recruits. "Staff Sgt. Harold L. Bronxon, 30, oi Freeport, Fla., who allowed "three blows" to be struck against McClure after the Texas youth threw down his pugil stick and refused to fight, was acquitted June 28 by a general court-martial on seven charges including involuntary manslaughter. Capt. James DiBernardi, base spokesman, said that 11 of the boot camp's 517 drill instructors including Bronxon and Wallraff. had been placed on trial since Jan. 1 for abusing recruits. Eight have been convicted and two acquitted. DIBERNARDI SAID that, in addition tc the courts-martial, 20 others--all drill instructors except for a colonel and captain implicated in the McClure beating--had been given nonjudical punishment and on* received an administrative rebuke. Two drill instructors are awaiting courts-martial and at least four sergeants have been suspended in the last 60 days pending investigations of charges involving their treatment of newly enlisted marines. A judicial rehearing is scheduled for July 27 for Capt. Cecil V. Saylor, suspended director of the special training battalion, to determine whether he will stand trial for complicity in the pugil stick beatings of two recruits, McClure and 17-year- old Ronald L. Taylor of Fountain Valley Calif. Last year, 64 San Diego drill sergeants were punished for mistreating recruits nine by court-martial and 55 by nonjudi- cial action. Related in several instances to alleged abusive treatment by drill instructor; have been attempted suicides amonj "problem" recruits of the special trainin§ platoons. In the last six months, then have been six suicide attempts, comparec with eight over the previous 12 months. Details of the individual charges and sentences in most of the court-martial anc nonjudicial actions since Jan. 1 were withheld. However, several sergeants art known to have received demotions or less than honorable discharges, but a legal officer said none had been given a prisot sentence. Di Bernard! said that tighter supervision over the conduct of the base's drill instructors would be achieved and fewer prosecutions for maltreating recruit; were anticipated with the addition soon ol 42 new officers to the training command * * * "THIS BILL ALLOW officers to be pre sent at more training sessions and als will make more ereadily available office! counseling for new recruits," he said. Gen. Houghton, in addition to insisting on "lowered stress" in boot camp train irfg, has ordered prompt and stern punish ment for offending drill instructors am training officers as well as the weeding out of drill sergeants shown in psychiatric tests to have sadistic tendencies. Pugil stick bouts are one of the mos' severe phases of conditioning of 50,000 t 60,000 recruits passing through the Marim Corps' two boot camps each year, hen and at Parris Island, S.C. '* At the San Diego base, from 60 to 75 re cruits are injured annually in combat wit! the five-foot clubs with padded ends. In ttu last year, five recruits have required hos pitalization. One who suffered permanen injury received a disability discharge. The Marine Corps' difficulties in main taining its image as an elite force of tough highly disciplined fighting men have beet underscored by the disclousre of recrui' maltreatment at a time when emphasis has been on lower stress training methods Considerable feeling has been aroused much of it outspoken, among officers anc career enlisted men who complain that th corps has gone "pantywaist" under public and congressional pressure. At the root of the problem, in the opinior of most marines of "the old corps," is th policy of an all-voluntary military tha' compels the Marine Corps, with its rigic standards, to compete with the other services for the few available top-quality re cruits. * * * "HALF OF OUR BOOTS are high schoo dropouts, social copouts and juvenile delinquents, hostile toward all authority and discipline and lacking any real desire tc become proud Marines," said a lieutenant colonel who went through boot camp here 23 years ago and was commissioned from the enlisted ranks in Korea. The result, he added, is that one out ol every five of the 2,500 or 3,000 youths arriving at the San Diego recruit depot each month is discharged as an undesirable before completing his nine weeks of boot camp training. Of the 10 or 12 men in McClure's pugil stick class on Dec. 6, five of whom took turns clubbing him, all but three have since been "washed out" of the Marines as misfits. The family of McClure, who died three months after the beating without regaining consciousness, has filed a $3.5 million claim against the Marine Corps alleging that because of his mental condition and the fact that he had a criminal record, he was draudulently enlisted. Bomb Kills 2 In Ireland BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) - A bomb exploded Saturday in a car in Castlederg, County Tyrone, killing the two occupants -- a 30-year-old man and a teenager. Police said the two were transporting the bomb when it blew up. They were blown out of the car in opposite directions, authorities said. The man illed innnnntly, and the youth died later in a hospital. Meanwhile, downtown Londonderry was blasted by three bombs in quick succession Saturday afternoon. A warning had been phoned to police and the area was evacuated in time to avoid casualties. Damage was widespread. The caller told police four bombs had been planted in the area, but bomb experts were unable to find the fourth. Earlier, at Lisnaskea, County Ferman- agh, a 28-year-old postman died from injuries received late Friday when his car detonated a landmine as he was delivering mail. The three deaths brought Northern Ireland's toll in almost seven years of sectarian violence to 1,568 lives. Authorities have stopped saying whether victims are Protestant or Roman Catholic in hopes of discouraging reprisal killings. shop mondoys and f ridays 10 to 9 other weekdays 10 to 5 'phone 346-0981 PRE-SEASON100% CASHMERE COAT SALE $ 138 AFTER SALE WILL BE 175.00 So who wants to think about a winter coat now, you ask.
