WASHINGTON-The House passed yesterday a $21.4 billion
defense procurement authorization bill with emphasis on speed-
ing up construction of a nuclear powered surface Navy.
The measure, approved by roll call vote, would authorize
$368 million more than the administration requested and the
Senate previously passed. It returns to the Senate for considera-
tion of House changes.
PLANS TO CONDUCT a Selective Service College Quali-
fication Test for high school seniors and college students next
fall have been cancelled because of the current uncertain future
of college student deferments, Selective Service Director Lewis
B. Hershey said. Until the question of deferments is resolved, it
has been decided to defer plans for additional tests, Hershey said.

4 STUDENTS AT ALLEN UNIVERSITY enforced a total boy-
cott of classes with a picket line and declared the institution
closed yesterday.
The boycott was called to demonstrate student support of
college president, Benjamin J. Glover and faculty dean, V.
Dewey Annakin over the issue of who has the authority to
determine faculty contracts.
Glover and Annakin had refused to offer a new contract to
one teacher and had interpreted the actions of two other teachers
who did not return their contracts as resignations.
The two men were overruled, however, by the other members
of the Board of Trustees.

Who Will Work?
"The problem now is how many#
staffers will work when Johnston
becomes editor in early June,"
says Frank Gill, faculty advisor
for the Collegian. "Some of them
are bound to quit."
Collegian staff members refused
to comment on Gill's remarks or
state their plans regarding John-
ston's takeover.-
Following Johnston's selectionI
by the Publications Committee,
the staff threatened to strike and
demanded that editors be chosen
by an all-staff vote.
The strike was not called, and
no action has been taken on
changing appointment procedures.
Publications Committee ?
The Publications Committee
consists of four students and
three faculty members. They se-
lected Johnston May 3 by a 5-21
vote. The following day, the Stu-
dent - Faculty Council accepted
their action.
Theaconflict over appointments
is a continuation of a year-long
quarrel between current Collegian.
Editor Vartan Kupelian and Char-
les Larson, chairman of the Stu-
dent-Faculty Council, according
to Gill and WSU students.
"It's a personal-political feud,"
one student says. Others add that
the quarrel has beenbased at
times on news judgments and ac-
curacy in the Collegian.
Appointment Politics
"I've never known such politics
over appointments in 20 years as
advisor," Gill says.
Johnston was an editorial col-
umnist for the Collegian for a
year until his resignation last
October "in protest over Collegian
He alleges that he was denied
an appointment as editorial direc-
tor on Kupelian's staff because of
his political views.
Johnston says that he suggest-
ed all-staff election of editors
and the disbanding of the Pub-
lications Committee before the
staff's reaction to his selection.

Pass Resolution il
Support of Wayne
'Power' Movement
Voice political party last night
debated the issue of setting up a
draft resistance movement. The
discussion was prompted by an
appeal of one member who asked
for support in his personal con-
frontation with the Selective Serv-
ive Board.
The member is presently being
investigated by the Federal Bu-
reau of Investigation for anti-
draft activities. He asked Voice to
consider possible action if he is
arrested. Decision upon a definitet
course of action was postponed
until next week.
Possible Plans
Possible plans included the es-i
tablishment of an anti-draft union
or draft counselling center similar
to the one established by Father
Gracie in Detroit. But the legiti-
macy of students with draft defer-
ments sponsoring such an organ-
ization was argued.
Voice members also discussed
the relationship between the cur-
rent draft system and the Vietnam
war and American foreign policy.
Representatives from Wayne
State University reported on their
student movement. Voice endorsedI
a resolution which supports the
Wayne movement.
Voice Resolution
The Voice resolution stated that+
Voice, "in light of its own cam-1
pus civil liberties experience, sup-f
ports the Wayne student move-1
ment in its attempt to eliminate
all forms of political and social
intimidation of students and all
invasions of student civil liberties
by the Wayne State administra-
tion." ,
Because "files make the univer-
sity a factory of 'yes-men,' in-j
vade the right of privacy and in-
hibit the right of political activ-
ity,"ethe statement asserted that
Voice reiterated "its demand of
student control over student af-
fairs in Michigan and the rest'
of the nation.

possible summer plans. Nomina-;

Play's Purpose
"The purpose of both the play

kind of administrator Fleming has

editors of Connections, said. The
play is centered on a comparison
of Fleming's behavior during a
student protest of Dow Chemical
Co. activities with Hatcher's here.
"Hatcher and Fleming are basic-
ally the same, but Fleming is
more slick," Miss Huln explained.
Fleming said he was not taking
the attack too seriously. "I'm sub-
