Agnew Denounces McGovern's Stands

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--Vice President Spiro Agnew has criticized Sen. George McGovern's amnesty policy and called for "tough" treatment of Americans who fled the country to avoid fighting in Vietnam. Agnew told a Republican fund-raising cocktail party that the Democratic nominee's proposal "makes utterly no sense at all."

The Vice President suggested that draft dodgers should be put into uniform even if the Vietnam war ends. He said that the men killed in Vietnam cannot be "remembered and revered" if "we are extending the hand of forgiveness to those who ran away."

The issues that separate the President and McGovern "go fundamentally to the morality of the United States of America," said Agnew. He added that the politics of the nation's youth and disregard for present drug laws would be the main issues of the upcoming campaign.
