Equal Opportunity Called For In Army WASHINGTON (UP!) •- A committee of generals looking into discrimination in the Army has recommended a policy of equal opportunity even though it "may result in a reduction in effectiveness." The study was the result of questions about Army Corps of Engineers policy in not assigning Jews to projects in Saudi Arabia. Among the findings were that Jewish soldiers were not assigned to Saudv Arabia, soldiers of Greek descent were not stationed in Turkey and vice versa and Spanish-surnamed personnel were assigned disproportionately to Latin America. The report also dealt with sexism and found "looks, figure and personality are considered when female personnel are nominated for assignment to high level staff." It recommended those and other cases of discrimination against minority group members, women and even unmarried officers, stop immediately. "It must be recognized that a totally impartial policy may result in a reduction in effectiveness," the generals concluded. "On balance, the U.S. Army should be prepared to accept such a condition in order to advance equal opportunity." In assessing ethnic groups' and women's exclusion from certain assignments, the committee said'soldiers the Freeport Journal-Standard Entered as second class matter at Post Office of Freeport, Illinois.

There were some areas where the report said selections on ethnic bases should continue. For example, Japanese-American intelligence officers are not assigned to areas occupied by Japan in World War II. The Special Forces detachment in Berlin is limited to Caucasians, who blend with the local population. It also recommended against changing policy which has dictated that recruiters and drill sergeants be selected on the basis of having "no obvious distracting disfigurations." The purpose of that criterion, the generals said, is to project "a superior image of the Army."
