  For, after leaving the Army in 1956, I spent five years in Graduate School first at Boston College and then at the University of Toronto.   This time, added to that which I had already spent in school prior to my induction in 1954, makes a total of twenty-two (22) years of education.   The possibility of recall into the Army is part of the price that a modern American has to pay for the enviable heritage of liberty which he enjoys.   With this no loyal citizen can quarrel.   However, it seems axiomatic that the government has an obligation "to exercise its mandate reasonably, equitably and with full regard for the disruptions which it inevitably causes".   lack >   In my own case, I submit that such reasonable and fair exercise is woefully lack ing.     Taken back into the Army now as an Sp 4, I am leaving 110 college students whose teacher I am.   (A wry sidelight on this is that most of my students have deferments from the draft in order to attend my classes.)   At this late date, it is impossible for St Michael's College to find a suitable replacement for me.
