WASHINGTON (P)-The De-
fense Department announced yes-
terday a drastic new streamlining
of the Army National Guard and
'Army Reserve which would 5li-
minate nearly 1,300 units.
Included in the .1,275 units
slated for elimination are 15 Ariy
National Guard divisions which
are now at about half strength
and the last four brigades of the
Army Reserve. The 46th Infantry
of the National Guard in Michigan
will be eliminated.
The rest of the units being dis-
continued in the shakeup starting
late this summer are company-
size .elements,
As expected, the announcement
s p a rk e d immediate criticism
among some Congress members.
Special Meeting
The Reserve Officers Association
said the national executive com-
mittee will hold a special meeting
tomorrow to study the plan. Mean-
while Maj. Gen. Horace D. Hlan-
son Jr. of Birmingham, Ala., na-
tional president, said the associa-
tion was withholding comment.
In addition to announcing the
reorganization, Pentagon officials:
0 Repeated that "we have no
intention or plan at this time to
call up any Reserves," either units
or individuals.
" Disclosed that they are con-
sidering a change in policy under
which draftees who have com-
pleted two years of active service
may not be assigned to Reserve
units for the remaining four years
of their military obligations. How-
ever, they would be subject to
summer training assignments.
" Acknowledged that they have
finally given up their effort to
merge the National Guard and the
Reserves into a single backup
structure for the regular forces.
Congress blocked this plan two
years ago.
'Improvement'
The reorganization, the third in
six years, was described as aimed
at' bringing about a significant
improvement in the "early deploy-
ment capability and combat read-
iness" of the Army's Reserve
forces.
The net effect will be to produce
eight National Guard combat divi-
sions and 18 guard brigades with
a deployment readiness goal of
eight weeks from call-up.
Secretary of the Army Stanley
R. Resor said one major objective
is to locate units geographically
"and in relation to population so
that the burden of mobilization
will be shared equitably among the

alcohol.
Administrative Position
The committee also studied the
position of the MSU administra-
tion on student use of marijuana
last month. Sink said the group
concluded that the university is
only interested in student safety
and does not keep files of mari-
juana-users.{
*John A. Fuzak, MSU vice-presi-
dent for student affairs, indicated
that students would not be sus-I
pended from school for using mar-
ijuana, except in exceptional cases.
He said the police would only be
brought into cases involving addic-
tion or student saftety.
The University has no stand-
ard procedure for handling use of
the drug by students.

University Regent Eugene B.
Power and University Microfilms1
Inc. were reported, late in 1965.
Power resigned in March 1966,
after the attorney-general ruled'
that he had had a "substantial
conflict of interest."
Following Power's resignation,
Kelley asked the State Legislature
to clarify the state constitution on
conflict of interest. Kelley musta
now state an opinion on a new
law passed last summer.
WSU Board of Governors Chair-
man Norman O. Stockmeyer, who
investigated his own possible con-
flict of interest last fall and stated
that he felt none existed, said he
was "sick about Hall's resigna-
tion." Stockmeyer is president of
the Wayne Bank and the Livonia
Bank.
