Auxilary police of Brighton will " ,V«x aid other cities By EARL MAUCKfcR Telegraph Staff Writer JERSEYV1LLE — Brighton residents may be able to rest t bit easier during times of emergency due to the recent expansion of their police force, which now includes seven auxiliary policemen. The auxiliary was organized about seven months ago by the Brighton police chief and village officials, after they felt a need to set up a back up force for the town's two. police officers. "The city just didn't have the funds to supply additional personnel for our police force," William Broyles, Brighton police chief said. "We • knew we needed the extra men, so we created one on a strictly voluntary basis." The police chief and village of f i c i a 1 s made up and distributed applications after various dty ordinances were altered 'to meet the need of their problem. "It was surprising how small the response was to our applications in a tdwfl as small as this one," Broyles said. "However, the men we did get were exceptional." The auxiliary was formed to back up the regular men during traffic accidents, picnics, storms or any other emergency where their services may be necessary. "For example," Broyles said, "one time before the auxiliary was organized, there was a terrific storm going on and debris was lying all over . the streets. While we were out . clearing the streets, we got a report that there was someone hi the bank. We were just lucky the state and county police were available or we would have be,en in big trouble." City residents and the auxiliary have also organized public programs in an effort to' acquaint the public with their new auxiliary police force. "A lot of the public isn't aware of what. our auxiliary is for," Broyles said. "We try Court decrees dad must pay college bills NEW YORK (AP) — A prominent New York lawyer has been ordered to resume support of his 20-year-old daughter, even though he thinks her "hippie" life "stinks." If the father does not post a $5,750 support bond, he may have to go to jail, ruled Family Court Judge Millard L. Midonick. . . The Appellate Division stayed, 'pending a review, a 30-day jail sentence against the father, which would have been imposed if he had not given the bond by noon Monday. The girl, a student at the University of Louisville, brought suit against her father after he stopped paying her tuition and other college bills. As is the practice in Family Court cases, neither has been publicly identified. The father, "a prominent member of the litigating bar," had acted, Midonick said, because of a "loss of confidence" in his daughter's educational progress. He rejected the father's allegation that if he were compelled to pay, "any minor would be able to set up housekeeping away from home and scornfully badger the father by court proceedings to underwrite any manner of living approved by mindless courts." The girl had moved out of her college dormitory into an off-campus apartment shared with a girlfriend. The judge chastised the father for his conduct and disagreed with his estimate of the girl's scholastic and emotional progress.. At the time of the breach, last April, the girl apparently was on probation at the college and in emotional difficulty, being "afraid, indeed terrified, to return to live in her father's home because of his rigid stan- CarswelPs situation TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — G. Harrold Carswell, who was rejected by the U.S. Senate for a Supreme Court appointment and defeated in a bid for election to the Senate, has returned to the private practice of Jaw. Carswell left private practice in 1953 when President Pwight p. Eisenhower appointed him a y.S. attorney. He rose in the ed.eral judicial system to a Udgeship of the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, the »st he held when nominated ,o the Supreme Court by President Nixon. bhe has opened Ms own law office in the Tallahassee Bank & Trust Co. building but indicated he would soon join a large law firm here, been dards," said Midonick. The girl had "emotionally put down by her father," and called a "hippie" who "stinks," said'Midonick. • She responded with comments about the three wives her father had married since her mother died. The. girl no longer is on probation, the judge found. She is carrying on a full academic course and . "is cooperating with a psychiatrist." "At some point," said Midonick, "minors must have some right of their 'own views and needs for their independent and painful transition from minority to adulthood ..."

The village hopes to train the auxiliary unit into a rescue unit and offer services to other nearby communities if the need arises. The city plans to initiate a new training program for its auxiliary and even hopes to take advantage of some courses offered by the new Lewis and Clark Junior College if funds and time permit. "We have invited professional men from nearby cities like Alton to talk to our men," Broyles said. "We feel this, is important because we need professionals to instruct the men adequately." Community relations also plays an important role in the formation of the new auxiliary force. Broyles emphasised the fact that because the auxiliary was an organized body of men any problems that arose could be dealt with in a professional manner. "We have tried this type of thing before," Broyles said. "A lot of men were willing to help, but they would end up working against each Other. We definitely need an organization. If there is organization you stand a better chance of doing a better job." Broyles said that since there is an auxiliary unit they are called out on an average of three to four times a month. Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday, Dec. 29, 1970 A-5 Laird's plan is nothing new Fighting mercury Dr, Barry Commoner, Washington University, St. Louis, Mo., takes a look' at some scientific papers While sitting on hotel steps in Chicago Monday.

HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird's new strategy of "realistic deterrence" apparently is new in name only. Pentagon officials acknowledge the United States has been moving into this strategy since the Nixon doctrine first was enunciated about 18 months ago. Its cornerstone is the buildup of the military strength of allied countries so they can bear the brunt of protecting their own security in less than nuclear war situations. Under this policy U.S. conventional forces will be smaller— probably around 2.4 million men instead of the present 2.9 million —but they will'be modernized. And they will be pulled back to the United States to the maximum extent possible. Implementation of that policy has shown itself in a Nixon administration request for an extra $1 billion in military and economic aid "to a number of countries in Asia and the Middle East, in achievement of a commitment by NATO countries to upgrade their forces, and in planned withdrawal of about 325,000 U.S. troops from South Vietnam, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and the Philippines. At the same time, the United States intends to maintain its strategic and tactical nuclear power at a degree strong enough to deter the Russians or Red Chinese from launching an atomic war. Laird used the term "realistic deterrence" for the first time at a yearend news conference Monday. He said in the coming year the administration will present "a new defense strategy of realistic deterrence which will address the nation's long-term national security requirements in the light of the strategic, fiscal, manpower and political realities we will face in the coming years." Pentagon officials said Laird chose to coin the term because he wanted to turn thinking in the country away from the old ideas of massive nuclear retaliation and flexible response. At his news conference, Laird put it this way: "I believe that a policy of realistic deterrence places the major emphasis on avoiding war and maintaining peace. This is the kind of strategy that I envision should be and must be developed for the next five-to-ten-year period." FREE PRESCRIPTION DELIVERY MONTICELLO PLAZA EASTGATE DRUG STORES U.S. Rep.
