WASHINGTON (IP) - Only medical
students will be eligible for college defer-
ments under the Nixon administration
proposals to eliminate draft inequities.
After a specified date, no other student
entering college can claim deferment on
the basis of education.
However, a sophomore, junior or senior
with an existing draft deferment when
the new rules go into effect will be per-
mitted to complete his undergraduate
This is the thinking of Pentagon of-
ficials who have been shaping the ad-
ministration's proposals to do away with
draft deferments in the student, occu-
pational, and parental categories.
Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird
said last weekend President Nixon "wants
to move in the direction so that all young
people are treated equally and fairly."
Proposed measures to carry out this ob-
ject will be reviewed by the National
Security Council and laid before the Sen-
ate Armed " Services Committee next
month with indications the administra-
tion will put them into effect as soon as
Just when this will be is still uncertain,.
Pentagon officials said they understood
action by Congress would be needed to
change the college deferment provisions,
but other proposed changes could be
made by executive order.
Officials said young men having occu-
pational and parental deferments at the
time the more stringent rules take hold
will be allowed to retain them.
But, as in the case of student defer-
ments, no new ones will be granted.
Unlike the student deferment, which
officials say will permit exceptions for
pre-medical students, there appears to be
no prospect of any further deferments for
job or family reasons, except where hard-
ship might be involved.
Job deferments have been heavy in the
field of teaching, police, and fire depart-
Authorities expect community needs
can be filled adequately by former serv-
icemen and no special deferments will be
required in these areas.
The same reasoning applies to hard
skill jobs in the mechanical and technical
fields they said.

REPUBLICAN LEADERS in both the Senate and House ap-
pealed for a united GOP vote to sustain a veto by President Nix-

Hopes to head off the expected veto appear dim. A delegation of
education and medical leaders visited the White House yesterday to
argue against a veto, but a spokesman for the group said later that
they were assured Nixon would stand firm in, his determination to

vention of neutralist forces to prevent any possible slaughter.

held throughout the country yes-
terday, his birthday.
In Atlanta, Ga. nearly 1,000
persons filled the Ebenezer Bap-

"It is not easy for a man to see
the goals for which he has sacri-
