Must Register But Draft Ends WASHINGTON (AP) - The credit-card-size piece of paper that raised armies and led hundreds to flee their homes to avoid its reach has been retired. But the draft system which monthly sent "Greeting" to thousands of young men is still Intact and as alive as it was, during the peak of the Vietnam war. Only the power to induct men into uniform has been retired. Eighteen-year-old men will still have to register for the drafts-and receive a draft card— and standby lotteries will be held annually. The power to induct can be reinstated—through an act of Congress—and probably would be in a national emergency. But now, for the first time since 1948, men aged 18 through 35 will not face induction. The farewell to the draft was spoken by Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird who told newsmen Saturday: "With the signing of the peace agreement in Paris today, and after receiving a report from the secretary of the Army that he foresees no need for further inductions, I wish to inform you that the armed forces henceforth will depend exclusively on volunteer soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines." The action puts the nation's military on an all-volunteer basis five months ahead of President Nixon's goal. The decision also canceled induction orders for 5,000 men who were to be drafted before June 30, when legal authority to induct young men into the armed forces expires. During the Vietnam war, the peak in inductions came in 1966 when 383,626 men were drafted. By last year, the number of inductions was down to 48,000. Nobody was drafted after early December. With the end of the fighting comes a question whose answer was delayed pending peace in Vietnam: What about the draft resisters who fled the country to avoid induction? Nixon promised he would not consider amnesty while the war continued. While there are no immediate figures on the number of young men who fled to avoid going to Vietnam, there are hundreds of them and the administration has yet to announce its conditions for their return to the United States. Ten Persons Die Monday Iii Nursing Home Blaze PLEASANTVILLE, N,J. (AP) — At least 10 persons died early today when a swiftly moving fire destroyed a nursing home for elderly people, fire officials reported. Six other persons were known to have survived the fire at Street's Rest Home, a fire department spokesman said. By the time firemen arrived at the two-story wooden frame structure, flames were shooting out of first-story windows, the spokesman added. He said that precious time was lost because firemen had to string hoses together to reach the- nearest hydrant, which is three -quarters of a mile away. The fire- • wa» ti finally extinguished; about three hours later. The identities of the victims were not immediately known. "There was no life when we got here," said Fire Chief Walt S. Schlundt. "I walked around the building but heard no hollering or screaming. "The smoke had apparently gotten to them by then," Schlundt said. Schlundt said initial indications were that the fire had begun in a linen closet. Sunday Fire COLO, Iowa (AP)-A 75-year- old rural Colo man died early Sunday when his farm home caught fire. The victim was identified as Chester Kelcerhouse, who lived about- one-quarter of a mile south of here in Story County. Authorities said the cause of the fire may have been a faulty heating system.
