College Offic ials Protest Proposed Draft P

dc ies



, By The Associated Press
U.S. college officials have dis-
closed serious misgivings over pro-
posed tighter draft exemption
rules for the nation's students.
Some have threatened refusal to
cooperate with draft boards.
At Brandeis University seven
professors said they might quit
grading students if deferments are
to be ended because of low class
Honors Students' Requests
At Harvard, Dean John U. Mon-
ro said that if a student asks the
college not to send his record to
his draft board, "I won't send it."
But Monro said the. college has
begun computing class rankings
for those who will permit their re-

student deferments on the basis
of assurances from schools that
students are enrolled full time and
are doing satisfactory work. About
1.8 million young men hold such
Tests Determine Deferment
Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, national
Selective Service director, has an-
nounced that these deferments will
be re-examined in the light of
class standing, and scores of new
college qualification tests.
Selective Service has announced
that new tests will be given
throughout the nation on May 14,
May 21 and June 3. High school
seniors and college students who
want to take the test must mail
applications postmarked not later
than April 23 to Science Research

lose their deferments.
Similar to Korea Cm Criticism
,Hershey said the new criteria Commented Dr. Buell Gallagher,
which could be considered by local president of New York's City Col-

draft boards in determining stu-
dent deferments would be similar
to those used during the Korean
conflict, with details to be an-'
nounced later.
The criteria in use previously
included a score of 70 or better
on a college qualification test forl
a regular student and 80 for aI
graduate student, except that 70
was acceptable for graduate stu-
dents in the healing arts. The'
class standing requirements were
that a freshman had to be in the

lege : "A C' student at institution'
'X' may be a better bet for college.
and university work than an 'A'
student from institution 'Z.'
"The overriding interest of the
nation is better served by en-
couraging the best talent to con-
tinue in higher education as long
as is possible under the manpower
demands of the armed services.'
Grade Pressures
John Weaver, vice president for+
instruction at Ohio State Univer-

sity, took a similar view. He called
the use of class ranking "a dan-
gerous way to go about it" be-
cause a student low-ranked at a
top school might stand far higher
at one where the standards are
less demanding.
"Students already are under
great pressure for grades, and this
certainly is going to intensify
that," said Weaver. "I feel there
already are too many situations
where the stress is on grades
rather than learning."
Lauds New System
Charles E. Liesenfelt of Min-
neapolis, who is both an educator
and a draft board member, felt
that the system would be "about
as fair as you can possibly get."
Liesenfelt, assistant to the re-
corder of the University of Min-
nesota and chairman of his county

draft board, said: "A student has
two chances-on the basis of class
rank and on the basis of a test.
Say there was a class of geniuses.
Some, of course, would have to be
in the bottom portion of the class.
But they still have a chance for
deferment if they can pass the
George Watson, dean of students
at Chicago's Roosevelt University,
protested that the rules would
make the universities "a part of
the Selective Service system." He
said he did not object to the draft
itself. Dr. Elbert Ockerman, dean
of admissions at the University
of Kentucky, foresaw a good deal
of administrative confusion.
A Brandeis University dean said
the new government policy for de-
termining student draft defer-

ments is "totally absurd" and
seven professors have said they
may stop giving grades because of
Dean Kermit Morrissey said that
for a student to lose his defer-
ment because of a low class rank-
ing is "unfair to schools with
highly selective admission policies
where everyone is potentially a
good student."
Misused Professors
Prof. John R. Seeley, chairman
of the sociology department, in a
statement signed by six other
sociologists, denounced the method
as "an invasion or misuse of our
role." They said their opinion has
nothing to do with their view on,
the war or the draft.
The professors' statement, pub-
lished in the Brandeis student
newspaper, said, "We might cease

to grade at all except privately for
the information of each student
or we might grade everyone
equally high."
Prof. Seeley said in an inter-
view he will wait to hear an ex-
pression of student opinion on the
issue and then will decide whether
or not to grade "on my own con-
Punitive Policy
Dean Morrissey said the new
policy is "punitive" and that it
assumes that "a student's ranking
at one given point in time is rep-
resentative of his over-all per-
Morrissey said that if students
must be drafted, the fairest way
would be a random "free lottery"
method, such as that passed Mon-
day by the University's literary
college faculty.
