Draft still shadows Clinton, Quayle
WASHINGTON (AP) - Dan
Quayle fought his Vietnam war in
.1988. Now it's Bill Clinton's turn.
The war divided the country a
generation ago and it still comes
back to haunt the baby boomer
politicians who came of age in the
Quayle, who struggled to explain
in the last campaign how and why
he entered the Indiana National
Guard in 1969, has joined the chorus
of Republican critics taunting Clin-
ton about his maneuverings around
the military that same year.
Quayle challenged Clinton this
week "to come clean with the Amer-
ican people. I answered the ques-
tions. He's going to answer the ques-
tions - sooner or later."
The vice president no longer re-
cites his name, rank and serial num-
ber in public to demonstrate his
pride in the Indiana National Guard.
ABut he insists it set him apart from
Clinton, a resolute opponent of the
'I wore the uniform for six years and chose to
serve my country. Bill Clinton chose not to.'
"I wore the uniform for six years
and chose to serve my country. Bill
Clinton chose not to," Quayle said
last month in Houston.
Clinton, as a college student, was
an intern on the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Committee when it sought to
build a case in Congress for ending
the undeclared war that killed
Clinton obtained a deferment to
complete his final year as a Rhodes
scholar at Oxford University by
promising to enroll in ROTC at the
University of Arkansas law school.
He later dropped those plans and
took his chances on the new draft
lottery in December 1969. He got a
high number, 311, and was never
called. He wrote the head of ROTC
at the University of Arkansas thank-
ing him "for saving me from the
draft," and said the only reason he
had not resisted the draft was "to
maintain my political viability
within the system."
Clinton faced a barrage of ques-
tions and attacks over his lack of
military record last spring. But he
weathered that storm and figured the
issue was behind him. Then the Los
Angeles Times reported last week
that Clinton's late uncle worked to
find him a spot in Arkansas's Naval
Clinton at first said he knew
nothing about it - and never joined
the Naval Reserve - but later ac-
knowledged he was told last March
of his uncle's effort.
Quayle faced weeks of intense
questioning and investigative report-
ing in 1988 over how he, like two-
thirds of the men in his generation,
avoided going to Vietnam.
"I feel that joining the National
Guard was the correct thing for me
to do. I wanted to go on to law
school and at that time in 1969, even
President Nixon didn't support the
war in Vietnam," the vice president
Quayle has always insisted he did
not join the Guard simply to avoid
being sent to Vietnam. He said in
1988 that if his Guard unit had been
called up, he "would have gone and
served very proudly."
Some political analysts doubt
that many Americans will actually
decide their votes this year on an is-
sue that doesn't affect their pocket-
AIDS speaker stresses coalition, unity
MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) -
AIDS workers in Michigan need to
tap into resources already in place in
most communities to better fight the
pread of the fatal disease, the direc-
tor of a Boston AIDS program said.
"You don't need to keep re-in-
venting the wheel," Larry Kessler,
founding member and executive di-
rector of the AIDS Action
Committee of Massachusetts, told
about 80 healthcare professionals
and volunteers at Saturday's
Michigan AIDS Conference.
"You need to logically think,
Who else in this town or commu-
nity can work with us,"' he said.
"Why not have black groups work-
ing with gay groups or migrants
working with people in the inner
Kessler, whose organization is
one of the largest in the nation with
75 full-time staffers and 2,000 vol-
unteers, also recommended recruit-
ing teen-agers to help with peer edu-
cation and senior citizens for help
with clerical work and staffing tele-
"We need climate control. We
need to start improving the environ-
ment and enhancing the atmosphere.
We need to be fighting AIDS, not
fighting the people who fight
AIDS," he told the audience at the
day-long conference held at
Midland's Valley Plaza Inn and
sponsored by the Michigan AIDS
Meanwhile, another speaker
asked the conferees to give advice to
her about how best to spread infor-
mation about acquired immune defi-
ciency syndrome and HIV, the virus
that causes AIDS.
"Even though I am living with it,
I am new to this disease," said Mary
Fisher, founder of the Family AIDS
Network. "There are many of you
who have worked with this for many
years. I am intimidated. I don't know
all of the facts.
"I'm the one that needs informa-
tion from you, so I can tell others
what you need."
Fisher, a 44-year-old mother of
two toddlers, is daughter to the
Oakland County industrialist and
philanthropist Max Fisher. She con-
tracted the HIV virus from her ex-
"My world changed at that mo-
ment when I found out. It was not
something I ever thought I would
have to deal with," said Fisher, who
last month described her ordeal to
delegates at the Republican National
The U.S. Centers for Disease
Control in Atlanta predicts that by
the year 2000, AIDS will infect
90,000 Americans per year. The
World Health Organization projects
that 40 million to 60 million people
worldwide will contract AIDS by the
end of the century.
