An investigation of the entire practice has been launched. Froclke Wants Draft Mechanism To Be Remained HOUSTON (AP) -Secretary of the Army Robert F. Froehlke says the nation's draft mechanism must be maintained although a zero draft is the objective. "We would not rely on the mechanism for personnel but in case of hostility it would take two or three months to restore the mechanism," Froehlke said Wednesday. He said the army has a fighting chance to reach zero draft status by July 1,1973. "Our effort to recruit high quality young men is working very well,"he said. "Last December we enlisted more men in combat arms than in the entire 1970. The number was not enough to satisfy needs but the trend indicates a fighting chance to have a zero draft army by July 1,1973." Froehlke discussed the zero draft at a news conference and during a speech before the Downtown Kiwanis Club. Froehlke said he was confident President Nixon's goal of reducing the number of combat troops in Vietnam to 49,000 or less by this July will be attained but he would not predict a timetable for further cutbacks. "Until there is a negotiated peace there will be war in Southeast Asia," he said. Obituaries MRS.

DALLAS (API - The Rev, Bill Bright preached revolution-a revolution of love- Wednesday night from a podium in the storied old Cotton Bowl.

About 85,000 persons crammed into the stadium for the second night rally of EXPLO 72. The Rev. Ed Hill of Los Angeles carried on with the love theme. "We're going to take the world for Jesus Christ, and we're going to do it because we love one another and because we love Jesus Christ and because we would have all men know Him who set us free." Cheers from the predominantly youthful crowd went up at pronouncements of both Bright and Hill. "Amen! "Right on!" "Praise the Lord!" Dr. Hill commented that those attending the conference are "not perfect people because most of us are still under construction. God is not through with us yet ... He said he didn't come to Dal- Has to argue theologically or philosophically, but "to tell those who will hear that Jesus Christ saves."
