Draft Policy


Slates Action
For Meeting
Next Monday
Professors Advocate
Policy of Random
Military Selection
Acting Managing Editor
The literary college faculty will
consider next week a resolution
criticizing the newly announced
Selective Service System deferment
policy. The proposed resolution,
submitted by a group of psychol-
ogy and sociology rofessors, calls
for a system of random selection
among college students for the
military draft.
The resolution also asks the Uni-
versity to take "vigorous steps" to
align other universities in support
of the random selection proposal
and against the new Selective
Service procedure which employs
class rankings and scores on a:
1 special examination to determine
elgibility for a deferment.
The sponsors of the resolution
charge that the recently revised
Selective Service policy "penalizes
students from lower socio-econom-
ic strata and places a false em-
phasis on the mere attainment
of academic grades."
Earlier Guidelines
Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, di-:
rector of the Selective Service
System, recently announced a re-
turn to the deferment guidelines
used during the'Korean War. At
that time, students who failed to
achieve a certain ranking in their
class were given the opportunity
of taking a test which, if they
passed it, would qualify them for
a continued deferment.
Such tests will be offered
throughout the country beginning
in May.
Policy of Cooperation
The University recently an-
nounced a policy of cooperating
with the Selective Service System:
in sending transcripts and class-
rankings to local draft boards, un-
less the student in question ob-
jectel to-this procedure.
The resolution, parts of which
were discussed at February's fac-

ulty meeting, is sponsored by
Prof. Robert C. Angell of the so-
ciology department and four col-
leagues in the psychology depart-
ail ment. It will be considered at
next Monday's faculty meeting.
According to a source in the fac-
ulty, the resolution may have "an
excellent chance of passage" be-
cause of a feeling that its pro-
visions would be fairer to stu-
dents than the new Selective Serv-
ice package.
Original Resolution
The original resolution discussed
last month was much stronger, but
was .modified after the Universi-
ty's policy was announced through
the Office of Academic Affairs on
Feb. 18.
Among the original proposas
were a request that the Univer-
sity cease computation of student
ranks in terms of' grade point
averages, refrain from lending its
"prestige and 'support" to invita-
tions for students to take the
national examination, "provide
minimum cooperation and use of
its facilities . . . for the adminis-
tration of the national examina-

Late World News
WASHINGTON '()-A threat to early passage of a bill to
authorize more money for the Viet Nam war vanished yesterday
when a group of peace-minded Senate Democrats dropped plans
to offer an antiescalation amendment to the measure.
Speaking for the group, Sen. J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark) an-
nounced that after two meetings yesterday it was decided the
$4.8-billioi authorization measure is "not a proper vehicle" in
which to express opposition to a widening of the Southeast Asian
But he said Monday's decision does not preclude the later
offering of a separate resolution expressing the antiescalation
view. (See earlier story, page 3.)
The first strains of Asian flu were reported on campus
yesterday by Miss Elva Minuse, an instructor in the epidemology
department. The disease has been reported on the east and west
coasts, but this is the first case discovered in the midwest.
Medical school sources commented that more of the disease
could be expected on campus within the next two weeks. Students
who may have contracted the disease are urged to report to
Health Service.

Graduate Student Council and Interfraternity Council's
executive committee have both endorsed the Student Housing
Association's plans to register graduate students for the coming
city elections.
Starting on Wednesday, the University will receive direct
relay pictures from the ESSA 2 weather satellite launched into
orbit recently from Cape Kennedy. Only the University and the
Chicago United States Weather Bureau station will be monitoring
the pictures in the immediate region, according to Prof. Edward
Epstein, meterologist in charge of the program.
Inter House Assembly elected David Satchell, '67, executive
vice-president last night.
University President Harlan Hatcher arrived yesterday in
Tokyo, Japan, to begin a 10-day conference with other college
presidents on the role of the university in Japanese-American
understanding. This is President Hatcher's second visit to Japan
in the last two years. He had remarked last Saturday, before he
departed, that he was interested in learning Japanese feeling
about American involvement in the Viet Nam war, which he said
was beginning to raise questions with many Americans.

A ten-acre site has been selected on North Campus for the
construction of buildings to house the University's new $4 million

by funds from General Motors and the Ford Motor Corporation
will face Huron Parkway. Operation of the institute will be
financed with $6 million from other automobile companies beside
Ford and General Motors, including American Motors and
Prof. Abraham Kaplan of the philosophy department was
elected to a three-year term on the national Hillel commission
of the B'nai B'rith yesterday. Kaplan, who is a lecturer at Hillel's
summer institute, will now be directly involved in policy decisions
affecting the 254 Hillel centers throughout the world which
minister to the spiritual and cultural needs of Jewish students.
Long Distance
Student leaders at the four colleges of the City College of
New York have urged their board of education to let students,
faculty members, and alumni have a voice in deciding financial
and educational policies.
"Students are not really involved on a university level," said
Carl Weitxman, president of the colleges student government.
A number of faculty members have enthusiastically endorsed the
proposal and alumni have hired a consultant to investigate new
means of financing programs and improving relations with the

in a mass rally last Wednesday.

In addition, it states that the
University has little grasp of the
problems affecting student hous-
ing and has made no significant
attempts to obtain information in
this field. According to the report,
the University has done little
imaginative and creative thinking
along these lines.
The committee had sought evi-
dence on which educational pro-
grams would be altered or cur-
tailed by decreased appropriations,
but the reports states that no such
information was forthcoming.
It suggests that the University
take a number of steps to improve
the present situation:
" Collect necessary data in or-

of these alternatives to the student
