Men who fail to
register safe
after age 23
Supreme Court ruled by a vote
of 5 to 3 yesterday that men
who violate the law that re-
quires them to register for the
draft at 18 may be prosecuted
only until they are 23 years
After that age, Justice Hugo L.
Black said for the court, the fed-
eral five-year statute of limita-
tions protects the man from pun-
Precise implications of the de-
cision were not immediately dis-
cernible but Justice Department
lawyers said the ruling does not
shield evaders who have fled the
country to avoid prosecution.
Black, for the five-man major-
ity, interpreted the registration
requirements as applying once, at'
age 18.
In the draft case, Black said:
"We do not think the* draft act
intended to treat continued fail-
ure to register as a renewal of
the original crime or the repeated
commission of new offenses."
His majority opinion also dis-
counted any prospect of wholesale
violations in light of the decis-
"We are not convinced," Black
said, "that limiting prosecution to
a period of five years following
the initial failure to register will

Trash ing,
Daily News Analysis
"It's the action of punks looking for
trouble," says Don McIntyre, '73.
"It's the politically symbolic destruction
of property," says Richie Feldman of SDS.
Two very different perspectives of
Interviews with some 20 students, ap-
proached on the diag or called on the
phone, revealed that most students at-
tach very little political significance to
trashing. None of them approved of the
tactic. Most of them were "turned off."
Observing the onlookers to the trash-

"I know they're making a statement
about something," Elyse Mallin, '71, as-
serts. "They're saying they're anti-estab-
lishment. But I can't see that trashing
has anything to do with it. I guess they're
just venting frustration."
Vivian Patraka, a doctoral student in
English, also recognizes the anti-estab-
lishment voice of trashing, but feels it
falls on deaf ears.
"Breaking bank windows doesn't ac-
complish anything," Vivian says.They've
got insurance to pay for that."
The only way to make 'them' listen,
Vivian feels, is to talk their language-
"Whan I heard about the unfairness of


they don't like the Chicago 7 trial, but
I don't know why they're against ROTC."
Nor had she gotten the word on the re-
cruiter controversy.
"Are they army recruiters?" she quer-
ies. Thus, as a political statement, trash-
ing seems all but inaudible to the student
on the diag. That is not to say, however,
that the action is entirely devoid of ef-
fect. The effect seems mostly negative.
"Vandalism turns me off," says McIn-
Karen Farkas elaborates a little more
saying, "They're just setting people against
them by trashing, who might otherwise
have been for them."
