,January draft call imit set at No.

From Wire Service Reports
The national Selective Service System
has instructed local boards not to induct
anyone into the military in January with
a draft lottery number above 30.
The establishment of a uniform top
draft number is intended to alleviate the
problems in local boards who might find
themselves drafting exceptionally high
numbers to fill quotas because their pool
of lower numbers is not available until
June due to educational deferments.
The plan of Selective Service officials
is to set quotas for the entire year for
each state and local board. But through-
out the year, each state director would

also be able to adjust monthly quotas to
keep each board at roughly the same
lottery number.
Still, many boards found themselves
reaching all the way to 30 to provide
the men to fill the January draft call.
Most state directors questioned s a i d
they believed that the issuance of induc-
tion notices to men with a number as
high as 30 in the first month of the
lottery was an indication that men with
numbers into the 300's would be draft-
ed this year.
However, Selective Service officials are
sticking to their predictions that men
in the top third of the lottery sequence

have little chance of being drafted.
Several explanations have been offer-
ed for the fact that some boards were
forced to induct men with lottery num-
bers as high as 30.
First of all, the January pool is t h e
smallest pool of the year due to the
large number of college deferments. The
pool swells slightly in February as some
students drop out and increases by as
much as one third in June when many
students graduate.
Under the lottery system a man who
loses his deferment and becomes eli-
gible for the draft is inducted rapidly

if his draft number has already b e e
Second, many men with 1-A dra
classifications and low lottery numbe:
were not given physical examination
this month. The switch from calling old
est eligible men first to calling men b
littery number has created difficultie
in examining those called before indu
tion notices are mailed this month.
Third, many eligible men with la
lottery numbers are enlisting in t h
branches of the service they want, for
ing the Selective Service to take highe
draft numbers to fill their quotas
other branches of the service.

North Vietnamese infiltration of the South has dropped so sharply
they now doubt that an enemy Tet offensive will be mounted this
State Department Press Officer Robert J. McCloskeq said U.S.
intelligence estimates North Vietnamese infiltration at about 110,000
in 1969, down from 250,000 in 1968.
There is official speculation that North Vietnam-Viet Cong forces
will wait until the end of 1970 when American troop withdrawals may
allow them to mount larger military operations than they can now
without sacrificing manpower.
Meanwhile, new fighting erupted yesterday in South Vietnam's
coastal lowlands south of Da Nang and to the southwest along the
Cambodian border.
The fighting began when allied troops attempted to prevent North
Vietnamese forces from taking up positions presumably for attacks on
allied bases in the new phase of a winter spring offensive.

ISRAELI JETS attacked Egyptian military targets within
earshot of Cairo yesterday in one of the deepest penetrations
into the Arab nations since the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, said
Israeli military command.
A spokesman said the planes pounded military and industrial
complexes both north and south of the capital, the closest objective
being six miles from Cairo.
Israel also staged a simultaneous attack on the targets along
the Suez canal.

THE LEBANESE CABINET ousted Gen. Emile Bustani as
commander in chief of the armed forces at a meeting yesterday.
The cabinet meeting was called to discuss the significance of a
weekend Israeli commando raid on a border village.
Bustani was replaced by Brig. Jean Njeim. Prime Minister
Rashid Karami said Bustani "would soon be nominated ambassador"
to a foreign country.

WHITE PARENTS and their children staged a sit-in at
Petal Junior High in Petal, Miss, yesterday to protest U.S.
supreme court orders that moved some 250 white students to a
previously all-black school.
The demonstration was the only incident reported as 30 school
districts started opening under the "total and immediate" desegre-
gation order of the Supreme Court this week.
However, the formation of many new private schools may leave
many public schools more segregated than before.
A TEAMSTER UNION DEMAND for wage hikes of three
dollars an hour over three years for the nation's truck drivers was
rejected by the industry yesterday.
Chief Industry Negotiator Ray F. Beagle estimated that the
wage and other demands totaled nearly $9 billion and would double
labor costs. He called the demands inflationary and impossible to
WILBUR D. MILLS (D-Ark.), chairman of the House Ways
and Means Committee, said yesterday that President Nixon can
have prompt consideration of any excise tax increases he pro-
But Mills added that his own preference still is for control of
government spending as the best way to balance the budget.
The White House has not formally proposed any tax increases
although Nixon has served notice whenhe signed the bill combining
income tax reductions with reforms, that he will present a balanced
budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE Melvin R. Laird said yesterday
the Russians could have a knockout missile force in place earlier
than the 1974 forecast he made to Congress last year.
Laird said that administration might have to consider strengthen-
ing the country's offensive strategic forces if the upcoming nuclear
arms limitation talks with Russia are not fruitful or if the Soviet
offense continues to develop at its present pace.

THE WHITE HOUSE has mounted a watch for the economic
signals that it is time to ease up on monetary restrictions.
High- officials disclosed yesterday that the question of tight money
"is being thought about very seriously."
Though Secretary of Labor George P. Shultz has called for an
immediate loosening of the monetary strings, a White House source
indicated that Shultz is well outnmbered by those who favor waiting
for a clearer sign to emerge before lifting restrictions.

'U' offer may avert
engineers walkcout
Prospects for averting a threatened resignation of most
employes at the central campus heating plant brightened
yesterday as union negotiators indicated that the University's
latest contract offer "appeared to. be acceptable."
The employes-members of local 547 of the International
Union of Operating Engineers-will meet tonight to vote on
the package.
If the package is rejected and no agreement is reached
by 7 a.m. tomorrow, most of the 31 heating plant operators
plan to submit their resigna-

University officials and mem-
bers of the city Human Relations
Commission held their first for-
mal meeting-in closed session-
Dec. 18 and exchanged informa-
tion about the University's method
for eliminating racial discrimina-
There have b e e n repeated
charges by commisison members
that "the University is the biggest
discriminator in town" and some
HRC personnel have doubted the
scope of the University's efforts
to end discrimination.
There was no discussion of the
controversial question of HRC
jurisdiction over the University or
of a black secretary's allegations
that the sociology department
fired her on racial grounds. No
decisions were made at the ses,
sion and another meeting between
the two groups is expected shiortly.
Vice President for State Rela-
tions and Planning Arthur Ross
chaired the meeting. University
Personnel Director Russell Reister,
Clyde Briggs, manager of training
and counseling in the personnel
office, William Cash, coordinator
of the University Human Relations
programs, and assistant director
of University relations Jack Ham-
ilton also attended.
Less than half the commission-
ers were at the meeting. HRC Di-
rector David Cowley, assistant di-
rector Robert Hunter and com-
plaints investigator Ray Chauncey
were among the staff members
Some HRC members criticized
the University's grievance proced-
ures by which employes can regis-
ter complaints of alleged discrimi-
nation for investigation. They
said the process was both cumber-
some and poorly publicized as
many employes are not aware of
the steps they can take to have
the alleged discrimination inves-
tigated .
Hamilton agreed that the griev-
ance procedures could be made
more accessible to employes.

City* Council delays vote

on new housi
City Council has postponed until
Monday a final vote on a pro-
posed new housing code because of
newly-discovered problems in sev-
eral sections of the code.
The code was scheduled for a
second reading Dec. 22. It passed
council unanimously on first read-
ing Nov. 17 and is expected to be
approved again Monday.
One problem which caused the
postponement concern whether
single-family home dwellers should
be burdened by penalties for not
correcting certain code violations.
There was also some question con-
cerning extending the time owners
have to fix violations during in-
clement seasons.

At the Dec. 22 meeting the coun
