i&lton Evening Telegraph Monday, January 11, 1971 Pentagon maps out volunteer army campaign WASHINGTON f ti o n g h uncertain that President Nixon's goal of an all-volunteer Army can be •chieved, the Pentagon has Spelled out plans for a major start this year. Specifics include a $2 billion GI pay and Incentive raise, less KP duty, more privacy to the barracks, educaional opportunities and enlistment at higher rank for men with Special skills. The first-year program for face-lifting GI life in an effort to attract enough volunteers to do away with the draft was outlined to the House draf subcommittee i n closed session last August but not released until Sunday. Chairman F. Edward Hebert. T)-La., called the idea "a bill of goods." saying only the pressure of the draft can draw enough volunteers plus draftees to meet the mi 1 i t a r y ' s manpower requirements. Even so. Hebert's subcommittee recommended President Nixon's pay raise proposals be considered at the same time Congress renews the draft law beyond its expiration date June 30. But it added that Congress Utilities spent 18 times more for ads than research Telegraph's Medlll Service WASHINGTON - Three Illinois utility companies spent an average of 18 limes more on advertising than they did on research to protect the environment and to seek new sources of energy, according to a survey by Sen. Lee Metcalf (D-Mont). This is sharply higher than the national average of an eight times greater expenditure on promotion than research which Metcalf cited as an indication of distorted priorities in the utilities industry. Metcalf has criticized utilities for trying to win public support ' through "superficial 'show and tell' techniques" rather than trying to meet the problems of pollution and power shortages through research. Federal Power Commission figures, cited by Metcah', show Illinois Power Co. spent $77,602 on research and 11,576,947 on advertising and promotion. That is 20 times more on advertising than on research. Central Illinois Public Service Co. spent 18 times more on advertising. Their expenditures were $106,982 for research and $1,928,141 on advertising. Central Illinois Light Co. invested $37,477 on research and $606,32(5 on advertising, or 16 times more for promotion. Illinois Power and Central Illinois Public Service both increased expenditures on research in 1969. Illinois Power showed an Increase of $8,044 over 1968 and Central Illinois Public Service an increase of $5,205. Central Illinois Light decreased research expenditures, spending $5,610 less in 1069. Of the 210 electric utilities included in the survey, 61 spent less, 99 spent more, and four were unchan«ed in research . spending in Iflfifl over 1968, Forty-six spent no money on research. Metcalf has asked the Federal Trade Commission to review misleading utility advertising content. should establish future manpower levels at the same time it extends the draft law. Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird announced last month a goal of achieving an all-volunteer force of 2.5 million men and women by mid-1973 and said it can be met if Congress approves increased pay and benefits. But Asst. Secretary Roger T. Kelley told the House subcommittee last Aug. 4 no timetable can be s beetcause of the uncctrainties of drawing enough volunteers— and said a standby draft should be kept for emergencies. Nevertheless, Kelley spelled out major first-year plans for starting the volunteer drive, but said specific recommendations were not ready at the time he testified. The $2 billion incentive package, he said, would include a 20 per cent pay raise effective Jan. 1 for enlisted men with less than two years service, pay raises for junior officers in July and increased housing and subsistence allowances for all personnel. lie said the derision to end KP for 2.ROO Army men at service schools and 1.915 Marines by contracting the work to civilian firms for $25 million already had been made although the decision could be changed. Ending KP was opposed by several House members in- eluding Rep. Alexander Pirnie, RN.Y., who said next the Army would turn to private policemen to stand guard duty. He urged that the $25 million be used for something else. Kelley also cahed for use o f more civilians and uniformed women to take over some of GIs' present duties. Educational benefits would include opportunities for servicemen to earn junior college degrees as well as more ROTC scholarships to bolster the officer corps.
