A DEMOCRATIC PARTY REFORM COMMISSION said yes-
terday it is considering revamping its presidential nominating
conventions to insure that important events occur during prime
evening television time.
The commission headed by Rep. James G. O'Hara of Michigan
suggested eliminating ritual speeches, specifying times for votes at
night sessions, and reducing or eliminating demonstrations.
A separate study group, headed by Sen. George McGovern of
South Dakota, expects to issue shortly its final recommendations
for revising delegate selection procedures for 1972.
BOBBY RUSH, a leader of the Black Panther Party, was
arrested yesterday on a warrant charging him with failing to
register a firearm.
Rush, 22, had been sought since early Friday after police raided
his South Side apartment where, officials said, they found a pistol,
a quantity of ammunition and books dealing with the construction
of explosives and booby traps.
The raid on Rush's apartment occurred 24 hours after a similar
raid on a West Side apartment in which Fred Hampton, 21, Illinois,
chairman of the Black Panthers, and Mark Clark, 22, of Peoria, Ill.,
a downstate Panther leader were slain.
Rush was considered the heir-apparent to Hampton's leadership.

By The Associated Press
Draft boards across the coun-
try reported being swamped
with telephone calls last week
from youths wanting to know
exactly where they stand as a
result of the lottery drawings.
Additional phone lines h a v e
been installed in sonic Selective
Service offices. How does it af-
fect me? is the universal ques-
tion, relative to last Monday's
fishbowl drawings by birth date.

"We can't answer your ques-
tions because we haven't receiv-
ed any instructions yet," was
the reply Friday of an In-
diana draft board, typical of the
answers the callers are receiv-
ing.
In an effort to straighten
things out, national Selective
Service headquarters in Wash-
ington is mailing informational
material to local boards, a n d

scheduling regional briefings.
One of the problems on the
local level is that draft pat-
terns may differ from the na-
tional standard.
As outlined by the Pentagon
before Monday's lottery, the to-
tal eligible pool for 1970 is
estimated at 850,000 youths.
From that are deducted approx-
imately 290,000 potential en-
listees. That leaves 560,000 draft

boards
eligibles to fill quotas that the
government estimates will total
only 250,000 nationally And
so, presumably, only the t o p
two-thirds in the lottery prior-
ity are liable to be called.
"Those are not our estimates,"
said Col. Paul Askt, New Y o r k
City's draft director. He said
the city scraped the bottom of
the barrel this year to m e e t
quotas, and that no estimate
of the situation can be made lo-
callyvuntil 1970 quotas are re-
ceived.
Unless the 1970 quotas are
reduced, it was pointed out, the
lottery alignment won't make
much difference, since New
York still would have to draft
anyone it can lay hands on.
Another factor is that youths
with high draft priorities in the
lottery are seeking legitimate
ways to beat the draft.
"There are several calls every
day from people wanting to get
into the Reserves," said a non--

proposal
irity talk s
challenged the Russians to first
show their good intentions in other
negotiations. That kind of pro-
gress, they said, would help as-
sure the success of a conference.
Rogers said what the Russians
"proposed cannot properly be de-
scribed as a security conference,
at all."
He noted that the topics sug-
gested included only an agree-
ment to outlaw the use of force
and increased trade and other
exchanges.
He pointed out that the outlaw-
ing of force has been the basic
principle of the United Nations
for more than 20 years, and that
diplomatic channels are always
there to promote increased ex-
changes.
Rogers opposed what he called
"an unrealistic and premature
exercise," which he said "could
lead to disappointment and quite
possibly a deterioration in East-
West relations."
"We would favor a negotiation
that holds outrealistic hope for
a reduction of tensions in Europe,"
he said. "But we will not partici-
pate in a conference which has
the effect of ratifying or acquies-
cing in the Brezhnev doctrine."
The doctrine of Soviet Com-
munist party leader Leonid I.
Brezhnev holds that the Soviet
Union has the right to interfere,
with arms if necessary, in other
Communist-ruled states.
Rogers said it was not time for
American forces in Europe to go
back home. Combat forces in Eur-
ope, he went on, would be kept
"at essentially present levels" un-
til at least mid-1971.
He urged a greater European
contribution to Atlantic security,
saying that Europeans as well as
Americans recognize that the bur-
den is not fairly shared.

GOP
senators
hit tax bl
Scott says Nixon
may not sign tax
reform proposal
WASHINGTON (P) - Senate
Republicans renewed their attacks
on the battered tax reform-Social
Security bill yesterday but Demo-
crats said they doubt President
Nixon would veto it.
Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsyl-
vania, the GOP leader, told re-
porters that, "if it gets any worse"
he would think the President
might well decide not to sign the
legislation.
But Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana dismissed
any such speculation as premature.
He noted that much reshaping
of the final product undoubtedly
would come in the Senate-House
conference on the measure.
Sen. John J. Williams, (R-Del.)
senior Republican on the Finance
Committee who will be a conferee,
agreed that the conference must
revise the bill drastically.
In fact, he said, many senators
who voted for a variety of Social
Security and tax benefits added
to the bill last week told him they
assumed the conferees would kill
them.
"This is sheer hypocrisy," Wil-
liams said.
The senate now has added about
$12 billion of revenue-losing or
benefit-increasing provisions, he
said, commenting:
"I propose that we rename this
bill, 'The Christmas Tree Act of
1969.'
"It will take the American peo-
ple a long time to pay foriall the
Christmas presents we are voting
them in this bill."
Sen. Gordon Allott of Colorado,
chairman of the Senate Repub-
lican Policy Committee, said Sen-
ate action so far has been "high-
ly irresponsible."
"Of all taxes," he said, "the tax
of inflation is the most unfair
burden on our people, and this bill
as it now stands will fan the
flames of inflation."
Managers of the bill predict
final action next Tuesday and
Wednesday.
Massive crowd
attends concert
TRACY, Calif. WP) - Paralyzing
30 miles of freeway, several hun-
dred thousand young people from
all over the West converged in a
hilly pasture yesterday to hear a
day-long, free rock concert.
The youths came to hear the
Rolling Stones, the famous British
rock ensemble winding up a high-
ly successful tour of the West, and
such West Coast groups as the
Grateful Dead and the Jefferson
Airplane.
By midafternoon the throng
was estimated at between 200,000
and 500,000 at the Altamont
Speedway 50 miles east of S a n
Francisco.
"This is a gift for Christmas
and Hanukkah from the Rolling
Stones," a spokesman said.
