was only recently prepared to give up
the long fight for good, an effort in
Congress to pay G.I. insurance to the
widow of Private Eddie Slovik, the
Detroit soldier who was executed for
desertion during World War II, put new
life into his tired battle.

people who didn't give a damn, I found
out that a man who wouldn't fight is
getting insurance," said Clayton. "But
when someone pays his duty all they
send you is a few medals and say I'm
sorry."
Despite the Huff's new hopes in the
light of the recent positive developmen-
ts, no official action has been taken in
the case.
