"The army and marines simply
are not fighting," he charged.
Levy said the "reasons for or-
ganizing the army go beyond the
war in Vietnam."
The chance to discuss racism or
sexism with soldiers who would
not otherwise come in contact with
controversial political thought, is
valuable, he explained.
"We're getting a very disillu-
sioned set of veterans after a year
in Vietnam," he added.
"They're beginning to see that
their real enemy is the man who
sends and keeps them in Vietnam,
not the NLF or North Vietna-
mese.
"Their valid hostility is often
expressed in right-wing activity.
The alternative I suggest is revo-
lution," Levy said.
Noting that many doctors have
entered the Peace Corps, Levy
said, "We must be critical of this
organization."
"The Peace Corps is part of the
State Department and defense es-
tablishment, the purpose of which
is counter-insurgency in Latin
America and the rest of the world.
"The design of the Peace Corps,
like the Agency for International
Development, is to pacify those
who should not be pacified," he
continued.
"More people are radicalized
through the Peace Corps than any
other work," Levy noted, "except
VISTA."
Levy said he supports abolition
of the draft and has no "special"
objections to an all volunteer army.
"General Westmoreland is no
draftee," Levy noted. "Army de-
cisions are made by career profes-
sionals."
"Hitler's army was not a volun-
teer one," he added.
"Nobody ought to volunteer to go
to jail," Levy replied when asked
about the effectiveness of going to
prison to make a political point.
"We're beyond that stage now,"
he added.
"We were a good deal more
idealistic in 1967 than now."
"By February 1971, I would hope
we have been dissuaded from any
conception of freedom of speech, or
freedom of conscience, having
relevance to the Nixon administra-
tion or any other government," he
said.
At Levy's court-martial, the pre-
siding military judge ruled that
medical ethics was no defense, in
determining actual guilt or inno-
cence on the charge against Levy
of disobeying an order.
Concerning a second charge, that

he had "uttered statements whosej
intent was to create disloyalty and l
disaffection," Levy emphasized the
importance of 'intent.'
Levy said he understood one can
derive 'intent' from a determina-
tion of the "logical consequences
fail to make one single individual
of certain acts."
"If so," Levy asked, "why wasI
disloyal or disaffected, whatever
that is, if that was the logical con-
sequence of my act?"

IocItors (Continued from Page 1)
ticipation in such a forum should
be voluntary.
The third charge, which he con- Fleming also indicated the Re-
siders the least relevant to medical gents may rule on that part of the
ethics, charged Levy with "conduct policy which prohibits corporations
unbefitting an officer and a gentle- engaging in legal discrimination

comes could be," he continued.
"We are in the process of explor-
ing around the issue, trying to
feel the dimensions of it."
Hefner said last night he par-
ticularly stressed to the executive
committee that the curriculum
committee was at fault for "cut-
ting some 80 students in mid-se-
mester from courses which they
had elected at the beginning of
the term."
He was referring to the decision
by the curriculum committee Jan.
26 to approve only nine of the 15
sections which were originally
proposed for the course. The com-
mittee had previously guaranteed
college credit to all students en-
rolled in the class, but warned at
the same time that each individ-
ual section was subject to review
by the course mart committee and
could possibly be denied approval.
Hefner said the executive com-
mittee gave him no indication of
when a decision might be made or
what form it might take. He met
with the committee for "about 45
minutes" and characterized com-
mittee members as "seeminly neu-
tral - not uniformly friendly, but
not hostile either."
"I would guess that some kind
of decision will be announced next
week," Hefner continued.
The committee asked Hefner
whether he was really unaware

that teachers for Course
courses must be approved by
