PROTEST DENIAL OF I-S
Bring 2 no. 2 PENCILS today
Law student to enter draft complaint
By RICK PERLOFF
A University law professor will
file a court complaint sometime
next week protesting the denial
of a I-S deferment to a University
Prof. Charles Donahue Jr. may
act as the arguing attorney for
the case with Selective Service Di-
rector Lewis Hershey and perhaps
the state and local boards as de-
Donahue contends that Hershey
is incorrect in denying the I-S.i
He said the law permits any grad-:
uate student called for induction
who did not have an undergradu-.
ate II-S after June, 1967 to re-
ceive a I-S for the entire academic
year, if the student is called dur-
ing the middle of such a year.
Generally second and third
year graduate students are the
Donahue is one of a group ofr
35 professors both here and at
Yale University who are chal-
lenging the ruling.- t
The Selective Service System
originally took the position that
no one who had received a defer-
ment either for graduate or un-
dergraduate study since June of
1967 was entitled to a I-S defer-
ment if he was called for induc-
Selective Service Director Lewis
B. Hershey now contends that if
a graduate student is called for
induction in mid-term the induc-
tion should be postponed until the
end of the term, quarter, tri-
mester or semester, whichever
Since Donahue believes the I-S
deferment extends to the end of
the academic year, he feels Her-
shey is giving half of what the
students are entitled to as a mat-
ter of law. "All he's giving us is
one of those half-ass compro-
mises," he said.
If Donahue's interpretation is
correct, second and third year
graduate students who lose their
II-8 will still be able to qualify

The denial of law student Tim-
othy Sisson's deferment brought
into question the consistency of
administration of the law by the.
State Selective Service Board.
Donahue maintains Sisson's sta-
tus was identical to that of Jack
Radcliffe. '70L, who had been
granted a I-S deferment under!
the same Selective Service regu-;
lation last week.
However, State Selective Ser-
vice Director Col. Arthur Holmes
denied that any I-S deferments
were given for a case such as,
"The conly condition that a
student can be classified II-S,"
Holmes explained, "is if he has re-
veived a Baccalaureate degree be-
fore July 1967 and never received
a II-S since that time."
Holmes then differed with Don-
ahue in the date entitling gradu-
ate students to deferments. June,
1967 was the date Donahue refer-
Two state Selective Service Sys-
tems, New York City and Michi-
gan, have granted I-S deferments:
at least in individual cases. How-
ever, many state and local boards
do not seem aware that such de-
Greg Curtner, '70L, emphasized
jit was important to alert gradu-
ate students of the deferments
open to them.
"There are over 200,000 gradu-
ate students, many of whom are
not aware that they have this;
option. We're trying to do~ all we'
can to inform students of their
right," he said. Curtner has been
assisting Donahue with the case.
T w o Yale professors have
brought suit in a Connecticut
cpurt also challenging the refusal
of a state selective service board
to grant a student a I-S defer-
Senator Joseph Tydings (D-
Md.), a member of the Senate
Judiciary Committee, has indi-
cated he will alert the. White
House of any case in which grad-
uate students are not being de-
ferred until the end of the aca-
demic year in 1969.

MSU president John A. Han-

no censorship involved in the case.
"I think whoever was responsi-

wanted to see how far they could
go," he said. "I don't think it's
appropriate to run such words.
