Tar Heel Draft Evader Learns That Army Men Are Not AllkHardboiledH There may be "hard-boiled" officers in the army and its court-martial system may be all wronf, as some of its critics claim, but Rutherford Stocks, the uneducated draft evader who surrendered himself to the Judge Advocate General a week ago today, probably will spend' the rest of hia days disbelieving an<4 denying such things. Stocks Is en route today to hia North Carolina home, a remote farm away down In Brunswick county. Major General Crowder, in whose of fice he wept and aobb?d as he sur rendered himself. Inducted Stocks Into the servloc and then mercifully ar ranged for his diacharge from Fort Myer. The unfortunate and unlettered Stocks, who confessed he fled from the draft and wandered about over the country for about a year and a half, was spared a court-martial and officers of the army believe the ends of Justice were met when he was put Into a uniform, made to serve a few days and then told to go his way a wiser man.

Attorney James A. O'Shea represented Coleman. circumstance in the Stock* Incident and the army showed mercy Instead of exacting; strict military penalty. Aa previously related in The Timea. the North Carolina countryman, who aaid he had been to school only a few weeka in hia entire life, and who lived forty mllea from a railroad ?t*tlon. came to Washing-ton last week to sur render himself. He said he was homesick and con science-stricken, and as be Aid his simple story to alienator Overman Stocks trembled and cried Telia (l?7 ??

General Crowder first sent the draft evader to a hotel to spend the night. Then he was sent to Fort Myer, and yesterday it was ordered that he be mustered out of the service. It is probable, anyway, that had Stocks gone before a medical exam* Inlng board or a court-martial he would have been declared tempera mentally unfit for the army, ao the mllttary system loosened Its hold on the fellow and sent him to hia isolated home down in a corner of the Tar Heel State.
