The President repeated his un-
alterable opposition to granting
amnesty to Americans who fled
the country to avoid the draft and
service in the Vietnam War.
He said those who refused to
serve or deserted the armed
forces would have to pay the price
-and that price was not a junket
in the Peace Corps.
The President insisted that those

The President spoke somewhat
bitterly about anti-war dissenters
who, now that the war had ended,
were charging him with failure to
terminate it earlier.
Asked if he would grant am-
nesty and so heal the wounds of
controversy and division, he said
some people were not taking
pleasure from the peace agreement
and it made one wonder if they
wanted to heal the wounds.
The President said he knew

ers listening to him gagged when
he claimed he had secured peace
with honor but it was true he had
achieved that kind of a peace and
most Americans realized it was
drove to my bank here for somel
routine chore. As I was about to
turn into the parking area reserved
for the bank's customers, I noticed
a number of police cars with their
beacon lights on and an ambulance
parked round the bank. I assumed
that the bank was being robbed,
and instead of making the intended
turn drove straight ahead to a near-
by bookshop to browse through
some new arrivals until the rob-
bery was over. About 45 minutes
later, I returned to the bank,
cashed my check, and itwas only
when I was halfway to my home
that I realized that I had not in-
quired of the bank clerk if anyone
had been injured in the holdup.
Five years ago, when I first ar-
rived in Washington, my reaction
to reports of violence here used to
be considerably sharper. I was'
appalled by the realization that
almost half of the U.S. capital was
unsafe after dark. I was shocked
to notice salesmen and managers
of stores in the city's business cen-
ter conspicuously wearing gun
holsters or having vicious-looking
dogs within call. I lodged many a
vehement mental protest against
the suggestion from friends that
when driving out in the evening
even in the "safe" areas I must
leave my purse and valuables at
home and watch out for suspicious-
1looking individuals should I stop at
a traffic light at an isolated cross-
ing. Did I ever experience any
such worries during my 21-year
stay in Delhi, I often asked myself.
Now, as my behavior on the two
r e ce n t occasions indicated, I
scarcely notice violence or the
prospects for it that surround me.
I accept its existence like the con-
stant noise of speeding motor ve-
hicles from a nearby thoroughfare,
which bothered me much in the
beginning but which I now do not
even seem to hear. When going out
Most of the Arctic's lands lose

in the evening the removal of the
purse from my coat is a ritual per-
formed with about as much con-
scious thought as devoted to the
wearing of a necktie. During the
recent Christmas, when a first sec-
retary of the Indian Embassy was
robbed while walking near the
National Press Club early in the
evening, the incident, despite the!
fact that the victim suffered a
knife injury on his hand, causedI
among those of us who knew him
more hilarity than concern.
If a foreigner like myself can
become so indifferent to violence,
the acceptance of it by Americans,
who have been exposed to it for a
much longer period, is perhaps
Americans, it seems, are begin-
ning to develop a dangerous toler-
ance for crime. Instead of trying
to'combat it, they may, if they are
not careful, learn to live with the

Those who wish to enjoy their
violence without having to pay for
it at the movie theater may turn
to their television sets. They will
not be disappointed. If the Vietnam
war is unable to provide the usual
daily quota ofvmutilated bodies and
gunfire, the void, it seems, may
adequately be filled by news stories
