Late World News
By The Associated Press
CAIRO-President Gamal Abdel Nasser announced yesterday
closure of the Gulf of Aqaba tc Israeli shipping and said: "The
Israeli flag will not pass in the gulf in front of our forces now
stationed in Sharm el Sheikh." In a speech during a visit to a
frontline Egyptian airbase in the Sinai Desert Nasser said that
even non-Israeli ships carrying strategic articles to Israel will
be barred. Nasser said Egypt now is applying the same regula-
tions that were in force before the 1956 Suez war.
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. last night denied a
charge that a peace movement he began last month is influenced
by Communists. And he lashed out at what he called "'McCarthy-
ism tactics" of his accusers.
King, reached during a quarterly retreat of his Southern
Christian Leadership' Conference staff members, replied to a
paper against extremism issued by Freedom House last Saturday.
The position paper, which supported President Johnson and
the fight against "Communist aggression against South Viet-
nam," attacked Kin'g for lending his "mantle of respectability" to
a peace movement. The paper said the movement contained
"well-known Communist allies and luminaries of the hate-
America left."
MICHIGAN DRAFT BOARDS yesterday were ordered to
deliver 1,167 men for induction into the Army in July from reg-
ular registrants, along with 120 men formerly classified for lim-
ited service only.j
The former limited service registrants now are acceptable
under lower standards established by the Defense Department.
This makes the total for the month 1827-the highest of the
eyar. The state's draft call figures haveshown a steady rise since
the first of the year.
Col. Arthur Holmes, state Selective Service director, said
another 7,500 registrants will be ordered for preinduction physical
examinations in July.

next fall.
Next Year's Budget
However, Feldkamp indicated
that the dormitory system is budg-
eted for next year on the basis
of an anticipated vacancy rate of
2% per cent. This compares with
an occupancy rate of nearly 100
per cent during the 1966-67 aca-
demic year. A vacancy rate of 2i/2
per cent would mean that approx-
imately 9300 students would be liv-
ing in University residence halls.
To achieve a 2/2 per cent vac-
ancy rate, it would be necessary
for 1800 upperclassmen, transfer
and graduate students to live in
residence halls next year.
Feldkamp said that it was dif-
ficult to assess the behavior of
these students since the academic
year 1967-68 is the first time that
graduate students and upperclass-
men will be encouraged to enter
the dormitory system. He pointed
to many requests by upperclass-
men and graduate students for
space in the residence halls which
were unable to be filled in the
past as evidence for his belief that
at least 1800 of these students will
choose to live in dormitories next

The pledge states in part: "We,
