RESERVE OFFICERS PUBLISH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES' POSITIONS ON DEFENSE

 RESERVE OFFICERS PUBLISH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES'
 POSITIONS ON DEFENSE
 WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Democratic candidates in the '92 Presidential election would cut defense spending to varying degrees, ranging from slightly to significant, according to articles in the February issue of the ROA National Security Report published here by the Reserve Officers Association of the United States.
 Entitled "Candidates '92: Their Position on Defense," the 16- page issue includes 1,000-word discussions by Democratic potentials Gov. Bill Clinton, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Sen. Bob Kerry (D-Neb.), Sen. Eugene McCarthy, Sen. Paul E. Tsongas, and Gov. L. Douglas Wilder.
 Because he was not officially an announced candidate when the edition went to press, President George Bush's advisers said that he could not contribute an article. Instead, the White House provided copies of recent speeches from which the report excerpted statements as to his defense positions.
 Two other Republican hopefuls, David Duke and Pat Buchanan, and Democratic candidate Gov. Jerry Brown are not covered in the issue despite repeated contacts with their staffs inviting their participation.
 Included in the issue are caricatures of nine of the 10 candidates drawn by internationally published political cartoonist Ranan Lurie. Additional cartoons by Lurie also appear in the issue.
 The edition is distributed as a supplement in the monthly magazine of the ROA, The Officer. Additionally 15,000 "off prints" of the report have been printed for individual and war college distribution. Complimentary copies are available by calling 202-479-2200, or writing to ROA National Security Report, 1 Constitution Ave., N.E., Washington, D.C., 20002.
