ALL YOU CAN BE

Need info on how to avoid getting sucked into war?

Bill Ruhaak, a veteran of the Illinois Army Reserve, offers advice at an event on Wednesday sponsored by Pax Christi Springfield, a local Roman Catholic peace group.

Ruhaak, a reservist from 1964-70, is a 1995 graduate of the Diocese of Joliet Peace and Justice Institute. Active in many Roman Catholic peace and social-justice efforts, he's also a member of the War Resisters League, the Peace Tax Fund, Prisoner Visitation and Support, the West Suburban Faith-Based Peace Coalition, and the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions.

Ruhaak's talk, titled "The Power of Conscientious Objection," will be held at 7 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Lincoln Library, Seventh Street and Capitol Avenue.
