MAY HAVE BEEN SAVED!
DRAFT BOARD #33 in Catonsville is missing
about 600 records. They were burned last
Friday. One of them could have been yours.
The Baltimore Interfaith Peace Mission is an anti-war, anti-draft
organization. We oppose the Vietnam war. We oppose the draft.
Last Friday, nine persons -- seven men (including two priests) and two
women -- destroyed about 600 draft files at Local Board #33 in Catonsville
by burning them with homemade napalm. We support their action.
If you are a young man of draft age, the destruction of these records may
have saved your life. NO ONE REGISTERED WITH DRAFT BOARD #33 WILL
BE INDUCTED INTO THE ARMED FORCES UNTIL THE FILES WHICH WERE
DESTROYED HAVE BEEN REPLACED.
However, this disruption of board 33's operations is only temporary. As
soon as they replace their files, they will start drafting men again. If you are
of draft age -- 18 1/2 through 26 -- and if you are worried about being ordered to
kill and perhaps be killed in Vietnam, you owe it to yourself to find out what
your rights are under the Selective Service law.
The Interfaith Peace Mission offers free, competent draft counseling at:
Peace Action Center
2525 Maryland Ave.
Also, you may be interested in knowing just exactly who the draft board
members are in Catonsville. You ought to be, because these four men are in
a position to sign your DEATH WARRANT.
They are: Edwin A. Steinwedel 26 Holmhurst Ave. 747-9390
(Steinwedel is ill and presently not active on the board.)
Vivian T. Douglas 1603 Ridge Rd. 747-4525
