Widespread criticism and possi-
.ble court action surround the re-
classification to 1-A draft status of
four University students who were
arrested in a recent Viet Nam

An ACLU attorney last night
said that such an injunction
would probably contend that
Holmes' statement interferred with
the students' right of free speech,
that it was unreasonable and ar-
bitrary, and that it caused an
unjust reclassification.

Committee already has criticized1
Holmes' statement at a meeting
last Sunday.
The committee unanimously ap-
proved a resolution which said
that "if demonstrators break the
law, they should be prosecuted un-
der the law, but the draft status'
of the student demonstrators
should not be used as an instru-
meit of thought control."
The resolution defended the citi-

zen's right to protest his country's
foreign policy, "even though we
disagree with their sentiments."
More reaction came from Uni-
versity Regent Irene Murphy, who
also criticized the reclassification.
She termed it "unfortunate."
The statement that caused all'
the furor had followed a Home-I
coming protest by 240 students at
the East Liberty St. Selective'
Service Office. Thirty-nine stu-'
dents were arrested for trespass-
Holmes followed 12 days later
with an "evaluation" of the inci-

Holmes contended that the pro-
test incident disrupted Selective
Service office procedures. The sit-
in began at 3 p.m. on a Friday
afternoon; at 6 p.m.,. Deputy Chief
of Police Walter Krassny closed
the building and made arrests.
"I don't think there is any
adoubtthat there wasra drastic
inability of the Ann Arbor office
to function during the protest,"
Holmes said at the time.

U' Analyzes
Staff's Right
To Bargain
AFL-CIO Petitions
For Recognition as
Agent to Service Unit
University officials are presently
analyzing attorney general Frank
Kelly's opinion on the right of
University employes to be repre-
sented by a collective bargaining
agent, University Attorney William
Lemmer said yesterday.
The University, he added, will
ask the courts for a legal ruling
on 'whether the University is cov-
ered by the Hutchinson Act
(Michigan's basic labor legislation
which prohibits strikes by public
employes) and its am'endment,
Public Act 379 which allows public
employes to be represented by a
collective bargaining agent.
Ben Moore, president of Local
1583 of the American Federation
of State, County and Municipal
Employes (AFL-CIO), said yester-
day that his group plans no fur-
ther action besides filing petitions
with the State Labor Mediation
Board on behalf of two groups at
the University Hospital.
Two Petitions
Local 1583 has two petitions on
file with the mediation board ask-
ing that it be judged the bargain-
ing agent for the maids, porters,
janitors, window and wall washers
in the building service department
and the maids and porters in the
service unit.
Moore added that the union can
plan no definite action until the
courts have settled the issue one
way or another.
Lemmer said that the opinion
leads the reader to believe that
nothing has changed in the Uni-
versity's relations with unions
since the University is not re-
quired to make concessions.
No Concessions
The opinion says that it does
not impose any obligations on the
Regents and union bargainers to
agree on concessions.
However by basing the opinion
on section 15 of Public Act 379
which discusses collective bargain-
ing and employers, the mediation
board can step in and declare the
public employer to be guilty of un-
fair. labor practices, he said. The
board's decision would be legally
binding. This is one of the areas!
that the University is questioning.
Lemmer asserted that the Uni-
versity's position isthat an agency
of the state-the mediation board
-cannot judge a constitutionally
autonomous body-the University
-and have its decisions binding as
this is an infringement of the
University's autonomous nature.
Moore also stressed the impli-
cations of mediation board step-
ping in to settle disputes. "The
unions would be in the same con-
dition they're in right now if we
couldn't appeal to the mediation
board for arbitration since we
