Hit Muskie on Peace Address By WALTER R. MEARS AP Political Writer Led by the White House, five Republicans have joined in denouncing Sen. Edmund S. Mus­ kie for a campaign speech dismissing President Nixon's Indochina peace terms as proven failures. And Nixon's campaign organization, the Committee for Re- Election of the President, said its only interpretation of Mus­ kie's "change of heart is that he is appealing blatantly for votes from the left wing of his party." Four Republican senators and House GOP Leader Gerald R. Ford issued statements accusing the Democratic presidential candidate of trying to improve his political status at the expense of Nixon's efforts to end the war. "This is the worst kind of gutter politics," said Sen. William E. Brock HI of Tennssee. White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said Muskie's remarks "were not worthy of comment," then called it regrettable and unfortunate that some public figures chose to reject the Nixon terms "before Hanoi has." "Now is not the time for partisanship to be put above the cause of peace," said Ziegler. The Republican counterattack drew more attention than the original speech, in which Mus­ kie told 150 churchwomen Wednesday that the United States should set a date for total military withdrawal from Indochina, with release of U.S. prisoners and safety of the troops the only condition. He said Nixon "did not offer to exchange our presence in Vietnam for the freedom of our prisoners. Instead, he laid down additional conditions, a general settlement of all outstanding issues, or a cease-fire in all of Indochina." Brock said he found it incredible that Muskie, whom he ^called an instrument of war policy during the Johnson administration, "would have the nerve to stand before the American people and denounce the one President who has been able to get us out of the Vietnam quagmire . . . ." IM Sen. J. Glenn Beall jr. of Maryland said: "The American people's memory is good enough to remember Sen. Mus­ kie's role in our tragic involvement in the war in Southeast Asia." Sen. Robert J. Dole of Kansas, the Republican national chairman, said the speech indicated that Muskie "lacks the wisdom, the maturity and the sense of responsibility needed to guide this nation during the 1970s " Sen. Peter Dominick, R-Colo., said it was incredible that Mus­ kie "for the most blatant partisan purposes, would try to undermine" Nixon's program for peace in South Vietnam. Republican sources said the congressional reaction statements were orchestrated by White House officials. Senate and House Democrats, meanwhile, were preparing for a party fund-raising dinner in Washington tonight, hoping it would produce $750,000 for their 1972 congressional campaign. In other campaign developments: MGOVERN- Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota, campaigning in New Hampshire, called for an overhaul oJ the Social Security system, including a 20-per-cent across- the-board increase in benefits and elimination of outside earnings restrictions. McGovern also reported he spent $4,380 on his campaign for presidential support among precinct delegates elected in Arizona, and his political coordinator asked other contenders to file accounts of their spending, state-by-state. McGovern finished third in the Arizona delegate elections, behind Muskie and John V. Lindsay. LINDSAY— The New Yorl mayor told newsmen he doesn't feel he is doing badly in the na tional running. "Nothing is locked up until the voter's voice is heard," Lindsay said on the eve of his departure today for campaign stops in Massachusetts and Florida. HARTKE - Indiana Sen. Vance Hartke said in New Hampshire that despite President Nixon's pledge not to ask for higher taxes, "he's caused high unemployment and he's caused inflation, and so now he's going to ask for a tax increase." YORTY— Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty, also in New Hamp­ shire to campaign for the Democratic nomination, said the Nixon economic recovery plan is "a temporary pain reliever for the ailing American economy suffering from his faulty diagnosis and mistaken prescriptions." JACKSON— Sen. Henry Jackson, D-Wash., campaigning in Florida, said he is "absolutely opposed" to amnesty for draft dodgers who fled the country to avoid service. Amnesty, he said, would be difficult to explain to anyone who lost a relative in Vietnam. HUMPHREY - Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey of Minnesota, who filed for Ohio's May 2 presidential primary Wednesday, headed for Charleston, W.Va., to formally enter the May 9 primary there. In a speech prepared for the West Virginia Legislature, Humphrey said the American tax system is unfair and unjust. "We must create a tax system that puts a halt to the relentless battle among special interests to see who pays the least," Humphrey said. "All American taxpayers are oppressed today because some Americans are not paying their fair share." Wife-of-Year Blasts Army For Letters FT. LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (AP) — The U.S. Army's Wife- of-the-Year has sent in her resignation to the Army's top brass as a protest of "the crass, rude and unforgivable wording in letters of release sent to officers", including her husband. Mrs. Billie Willett said her husband; Chief.. Warrant Officer Paul Willett, stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood, received a letter from the Pentagon last Thursday giving him the option of retiring or being released after 22 years service, Mrs. Willett said her husband had forbidden her to release portions of the Pentagon letter she found objectionable. She said it was her protest, not his. "I must admit," she said, "that his letter is not as bad as some of the others who have received these letters." She said about 100 officers of the Missouri Army post had received similar notifications. She said her husband planned no appeal of his own but "would abide by the Army's decision." Maj. Willis Haas, base public information officer, said letters of release had been received by officers on active duty and were related to the Defense Department's plan of reducing the Army's manpower. He would not comment on Mrs. Willett's resignation. In her letter Mrs. Willett said: "My husband and 1 have been completely loyal, but the Army has not. "I find it impossible under these circumstances to continue bearing a title, of which I was extremely proud, but of which I am now deeply ashamed. 1 trust the thousands of Army wives I was representing will understand this was the only action I could take in all gooc conscience under the circumstances. Copies of her letter were sent to Army Secretary Robert F. Froehlke; Gen. William C. Westmoreland, Army chief of staff; Brjg. Gen. Winant Sidle, chief of public information and Brig. Gen. W. P. Bradley, commanding officer of Ft. Leonard Wood. In another part of her letter, Mrs. Willett said: "1 also consider it an insult to me personally when my husband was sent such a letter during the time I was serving as Army Wife-of-the-Year. The Army does itself no good by wording letters of release in such a manner; a soldier is made to feel less than a man. "I have tried very hard to improve the image of the Army, which needs improving badly. The Army is its own worst enemy." Mrs. Willett said she was also sending her trophy back to the Secretary of the Army. She said her husband had planned to make the Army a 30-year career. The letter from Washington "took us completely by surprise," she said. She said he was unaware of the method used in selecting officers to be cut. Your C\mxk SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST R. S. Leach John L.

Laughter is a muscular response to appreciated humor. And we're inclined to view humor as one of those high-level responses which are characteristic in humans only. And thank the Lord for humor. Without laughter this would be a sorry world. Religion is another human characteristic not evident in animals. Our belief in and worship of God, coupled with our conscientious effort to live according to moral principles — these are not found in the animal world. Whether cats laugh is not a question of great moment. But whether man is living up to the religious copaeity God has given him is another matter.
