Kennedy Asks Selective Service Change



Collegiate Press Service
WASHINGTON - Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass) has intro-
duced an 18-part bill in the Sen-
ate that provides for drastic
changes in the Selective Service
System, most of them aimed at
reducing the powers of local draft
boards and ending inequities.
Two .of the bill's major provi-
sions are that draftees should be
chosen by random selection and
that the youngest eligible men
should be taken first.
It also provides for the estab-
lishment of -several hundred area
,offices to take over the functions
presently carried out by local
draft boards. The senator pro-
posed that local draft boards be-
come appeal boards for men in-
ducted by one of the area offices.'
The area-office plan was origin-
ally proposed by the draft com-
mission set up by President John-
son last spring.
No Passage
Kennedy's bill has little hope
of passage. Sen. Richard Russell
(D-Ga), chairman of the Armed
Services Committee, said Thurs-
day that his committee looked at
the draft thoroughly last year
and has no plans to .-go into it
again. That probably means that
Russell's committee won't even
consider Kennedy's bill ' unless

pressure is brought by other sen-
In his speech introducing the
bill in the Senate, Kennedy criti-
cized several of the draft law
amendments passed by Congress
last June. He suggested that Con-
gress enacted some of the amend-
ments simply to reduce the rights
of draftees.
As one example he cited the
1967 amendment that says the
courts can't review a decision
made by a Selective Service Board
unless the registrant involved is
charged with a criminal violation.
The amendment means, in effect,
that a draftee can't challenge a
draft board's decision in the
courts until he has been charged
with violating the draft law.
Provisions of Bill
Among the provisions in Ken-
nedy's bill are the following:
Students should be given
"postponements" during up to
four years in college, but that
these postponements should no
longer be granted if draftees are
becoming heavily involved in
combat action.
