   i  ( , I The case of the Dr. Fickert, I the medic who oh,oases not to cam- I ply with the military requirement t that he serve the armed forces, betngs to mind the fact that this great derhocracy was founded by pilgrim fathers who came to this country in order that they might enjoy religious freedom. Personally we do not ondone draft evasion or any other deliber- Qte act to avoid service to our eountry in time of need. But we 1o respect those religious devotees who have thecourage of their 0nvicti0ns and refuse because of these convictions to indulge the un,Christian practice of taking part in the deliberate destruction f the nations of the world, and we believe that once their sincer- ity iS established, it should be res- pected because this is a democ- racy, and such are the ideals we are seeking to maintain. .... Far better, we would feel, to make exceptions of the individuls who through financial or other connections, seek to evade their responsibility with no ideal great- er than that of preserving their own skin at the cost of others.
