WASHINGTON (/P) - Troubles
are mounting for science-minded
students who want to enter grad-
uate schools next September.
Piling atop worries about the
draft are cuts in government fel-
lowships, which could keep the
needy out of school, and a drop in
federally sponsored research,
which could cut the quality of
education for students who aren't
drafted and who conquer money
problems.
All three developments are fur-
rowing brows at universities. At
many schools there is also con-
cern that government research
* uts will reduce heavily operating
Five More'
~Serve Jail
Sentences
Five more of the 29 persons
convicted of trespassing at the
Ann Arbor draft board during a
1965 anti-war protest have sur-
rendered themselves to begin
serving jail sentences.
The five-Sam Friedman, David
Bernstein, Edward Geffner, Tom-
mie Suber, and Joseph Gaughn-
surrendered themselves to Wash-
tenaw County authorities yester-
day ten days after the Supreme
Court denied their appeal on the
trespassing charge.
Thirteen others who withdrew
from the final appeal to the Su-
preme Court served their sen-
tences over winter vacation. Of
these, Prof. Tom Mayer of the
. sociology department received the
longer sentence, 20-days, while
the others, all students and for-
mer students, received 15- or 18-
day sentences.
Of the 29 who staged the pro-
test, 28 were sentenced and one
forfeited bond. Defense attorney
r Ernest Goodman informed Assist-
ant Prosecuting Attorney Thomas
Shea the remaining nine people
could not appear for jailing be-
cause they are in other states now,
some as far away as California.
The protest took place at the
draft board on Oct. 7, 1965. All 29
were convicted in early 1966 and
have been appealing the decision
since then.

budgets already strained by ris-
ing costs.
The Defense Department and
space agency combined are lopp-
ing 20 per cent this year from the
$400 million they sent to univer-
sities in 1967.
Through the early and mid-
1960s, annual government re-
search spending spiraled to $1.6
billion at universities.
33 Schools
A private Defense Department
memo, compiled after checks with
33 schools on the cuts, reported
general agreement that new post
doctoral fellowships and graduate
student admissions would be cut
in September.
Schools facing research money
cuts, the memo said, are holding
up on spending for new equip-
ment and are preparing to lay off
some technicians. Some summer
faculty salaries may also not be
covered by research money as in
the past.
The memo states, "The impact
on the small private non-endowed!
university will be much more se-
vere than on state universities or
on the bigger endowed private
universities."
It said the impact will probab-
ly peak in the spring, when marny
contract and grant decisions will
be made and schools will learn
exactly howrmuch they're losing.
Drastic Cuts
Cuts in new fellowships are
drastic: the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration went
from about 750 new fellowships
in 1967 to 75 for next September.
The National Science Foundation
dropped from 1,200 to 700 and
National Defense Education Act
fellowships were halved to 3,000.
Raymond Woodrow, director of
the office of research and project
administration at Princeton Uni-
versity, told a reporter the "ex-
tent to which we could increase
university money to pick up grad
students who would otherwise be
supported by, say, a NASA fellow-
ship, is very small."
Others Hold
While defense and space cut-
backs have been the most severe,
other government research arms
such as the National Science
Foundation, National Institutes
of Health and Atomic Energy
Commission, have been forced to
hold even with last year's expen-
ditures or expand only a bit.
