State ACLU
City Board of Education Challenges
Asks for Building Funds GDafn Acton
Group Defeiick 17,

By DAVID DUBOFF
An estimated 8,000 Ann Arbor
residents will go to the polls to-
morrow to cast their votes on a
controversial $15.5 million school
bond proposal.
The Ann Arbor Board of Edu-
cation is asking $15,525,000 in
funds to finance a four-year
'uilding program, which includes
a third senior high school fthe
city's second, Huron High School,
will open next fall), a fifth junior
high, and "an elementary school.
The proposed building plan also
includes' additions to existing ele-
mentary schools and library facil-
ities, a building and ground facil-
ity, an apprentice-training facil-
ity, and an administration build-
ing.
Considerable criticism of the
bonding proposal has been voiced
by a number of sources, including
he Ann Arbor Chamber of Com-
erce, the Junior Chamber of
Commerce, the local chapter of
the National Association for theI

Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP), a n d school board
Trustee Paul H. Johnson.
Most of the criticism has cen-
tered around, objections to the
cost estimates of the school board
and the need for a bond issue at
this time.
'Destined for Defeat'
Johnson, the only trustee to
vote against approval of the bond
issue, said yesterday that the is-
sue "has seemed destined for de-
feat since the very beginning, be-

are not strictly educational, such
as the administration building and
the grounds facility, and because
the "brinksmanship" attitude of
the board in not letting the voters
select only those programs that
they consider worthwhile.
He? also objected to the Jan-
uary voting date because of com-
petition with the holiday season,,
when people are burdened with
heavy bills and impending taxes.
Johnson added that he would;

cause of the poor strategy and
tactics" of the school board in
presenting the proposal to the
voters.
A motion introduced by John-
son at the School Board meeting1
on Nov. 27, asking that the refer-
endum be postponed until the1
spring and divided so that the
building programs could be voted
for seperately, died for lack of
support.
Johnson said that he objected
to the existing proposal because it

like to see "tighter controls and
better planning" by the board.
The bond issue increase, if pass-
ed, would cost the typical home-
owner an average of $9.33 over
1967 taxes each year for the next
five years. Because of the bond-
issuing schedule, however, the
actual added costs would vary
from $13.52 in 1969 down to $5.51
in 1972.
Lack of Funds
Several of the 20 building proj-
ects covered by the proposal were
approved.by the voters in a 1965
bond referendum, but were defer-

Calls Hershey Order
Violation of Rights
By STEVE NISSEN
The Michigan chapter of the
American Civil Liberties Union has
filed suit in Federal District Court
to prevent local draft boards from
reclassifying men who protest the
Vietnam war and the draft sys-
tem.
The suit "challenges the right
of the Selective Service system to
engage in judicial or legislative
action," Michigan's ACLU director
Ernest Mazey said yesterday.
The suit was filed in response
to a directive issued last November
by Selective Service Director Gen-
eral Lewis B. Hershey to all draft
boards instructing them to place
anti-draft protesters in a classifi-
cation making them immediately
available for service.
'Playing God'
An ACLU statement accused
Hershey of "playing God" in or-
1 dering the reclassification of pro-
testers.

broken the law it is up to the
