Volunteer army a finaic

WASHINGTON-Six years of the all-
volunteer military force have cost $18.4
billion more than the military draft
system, far in excess of the Pentagon's
own estimates, the General Accounting
Office said yesterday.
The congressional auditing agency
said in a new study that there is
unlikely to be any reduction in the
current $3.6 billion higher cost of the
volunteer force annually.
THE STUDY was released by Com-
ptroller -General Elmer Staats at a
hearing of a Senate armed services
subcommittee chaired by Sen. Sam
Nunn, (D-Ga).
Nunn said the 2.1 million-member
voluntary military is costing so much
that it is taking away from other major
defense programs and will inevitable
mean a "steady erosion" of U.S. defen-
se capabilities.
The GAO fond that $14.2 billion of the

additional cost since the draft ended in
1971 has gone to pay substantially
higher salaries to new enlistees and
junior officers in all the services.
John White acknowledged that the $14.2
billion should be attributed to the volun-
teer force, but said military pay would
probably have risen far above the low
salaries paid low-ranking soldiers in
the 1960s.
In the 1980s, White said, there will be
15 per cent fewer young Americans in
the age group from which military
enlistees are drawn. The result, he said,
will be even higher enlistment costs at-
tributable to the voluntary force.
Another additional cost uncovered by
the GAO was $276 million paid because
of the high flunkout rate among Army
inductees over the past six years.
CONTRARY TO the predictions of
early voluntary Army supporters,

about 40 per cent of new inductees fail
to qualify and are eased out within the
first 90 days.
For those would-be soldiers the cost is
$86 million in training.
Among other additional costs cited by
Staats were:
" $1.4 billion for recruiting and adver-
" $932 million spent in recruiting and
higher pay for doctors and dentists,
who nonetheless have signed up in in-
sufficient numbers.
" $1.2 billion in higher military
housing costs.
" $178 million for hiring civilians who
now do most housekeeping chores like
KP, which used to be assigned to low-
ranking GIs.'
The GAO conceded that $289 million
had been saved taxpayers through
phasing out the selective service

1a1 flop
Pentagon officials have
acknowledged in congressional
testimony that the volunteer force had
cost between $300 million and $5"
million more since the end of the draft
years, Nunn said.
He quoted Army Secretary Clifford
Alexander as saying, "The a113
volunteer force is a bargain for t4x
payers," and said the Army official la
claimed that rather than costing
money, the all-volunteer force saves $40
million annually.
Nunn scoffed at that and said hd
asked the GAO for its study because the
Pentagon ignored his repeated requests
for a detailed examination of costs.
Nunn, an early critic of the all,
volunteer concept, stopped short of
calling for a return to the mandatory
military draft. But he said a broad
military-civilian national service con-
scription plan should.be examined.

the firing of a Bursley Hall staffer. First, we called the building direc-
tor Ted Hanson. His name is Tod Hanson. Second, we said Eric Arnson
became a resident advisor in September, 1977. It should have said Sep-
tember, 1976.

Daily yearly staff switch
Why are these people smiling? Well, you might be too if you were a
proud member of the Daily's new senior staff, who took over
operations on Wednesday. Then again ... To get on with the introduc-
tions, M. Eileen Daley (far left) is an English and Journalism major
from Novi, Mi., and will take charge of the Daily's University
operations. Standing next to her is Co-editor-in-chief Gregg Krupa, a
History and Journalism major from Detroit. David Goodman, the
other Co-Editor, hails from Cincinnati and is a Journalism major. City
Editor Lani Jordan (far right) is (surprise) a Journalism Education
major from Mt. Clemens, Mi. In the back row, from the left, is
Editorial Director Bob Rosenbaum, yet another Journalism major
from Binghamton, N.Y. Next to Bob are the Sunday Magazine editors,
Patty Montemurri and Tom O'Connell (Tom's the one with' the
glasses) Patty is a Journalism major from Dearborn Heights, while
Tom is from Westport, Conn., and majors in English. Hiding behind
David is Journalism graduate student Linda Willcox, who is managing,
editor in charge of special projects. And last, but not least, (she must
be used to it) is Barbara Zahs, managing editor in charge of person-
nel, a Political Science major from Oak Park, Mi.
On the outside ...
As you look out your window this morning with near zero tem-
peratures outside, you might wonder if winter will ever end. Ah, but
you don't know how lucky we really are. As of 4 a.m. the North Eastern
Seaboard has had over a foot of snow and it's still falling. Here in Ann
Arbor, we can expect variably cloudy skies this morning with scat-
tered snow showers from the fringes of the storm. Skies will slowly
clear, with a high of 16 to 19. A strong high pressure system over
Wisconsin will continue to bring fown frigid polar air. Tonight should
be partly cloudy, with a low of 6 to 9. A slow warming trend will l ast
through the week. With no appreciable snow forecast until Friday.
