THE UNIVERSITY STUDENT Economic Union joined forces
I last night with the American Federation of State, County, Munici-
pal Employes in their attempt to organize non-student employes
of the tUniversity. They also plan to co-ordinate their efforts to
organize student employes. They hope this united front will force
the University to recognize their demands.
SOME ALUMNI GROUPS ARE disturbed by University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher's recent statement criticizing aspects of
United States policy in Viet Nam, a University regional director
reported yesterday.
Jonathan Slott, field director for University-alumni relations
in 10 states ranging from Ohio westward to New Mexico, also
indicated that some alumni may be reluctant to contribute to the
University's $55 million fund-raising drive because of the state-
He indicated that he has received warnings that he may run
into sharp questioning on Hatcher's statement when he speaks
to an 'M' club gathering in Dayton, Ohio, tonight.
The Wright-Patterson military base is located near Dayton.
Slott said some opposition may be encountered among military
officers who plan to'attend the function.;
Hatcher, in a statement to The Daily last month said he
found it "very hard to find convincing evidence for our current
policy in Viet Nam. We have to hope that our leaders who have
all the information are leading us on the right course."
PEACE CORPS DIRECTOR Jack Hood Vaughn said yester-
day he does not want corps service to become a mere substitute
for military service.

of human beings for whom protest has yet to be of any service at

THE NATIONAL CHAIRMAN of the DuBois Clubs of
America denied recently that the socialist youth group is a
Communist front organization.
U.S. Attorney General Nicholas D, Katzenbach asked the
Subversive Activities Control Board on March 4 to declare the
DuBois Clubs a "communist" front group under the McCarren Act.
Hugh Fowler, who was in Detroit Saturday to meet with
members of the Wayne State University DuBois Club, admitted
that some Communists belong to the organization.
But Fowler,' a 21-year-old graduate of the University of
California, insisted the organization is not Communist dominated.
Fowler accused Katzenbach of attempting to silence the
group because it is opposed to the war in Viet Nam.

Students Mav
Be Delayed,
Enlistment Increases
Seen as Limiting
Monthly Draft Calls
A Selective Service official says
that drafting of college students
may not be necessary because of
the recent high rate in volunteer
enlistments, United Press Inter-
national reported yesterday.
Army figur.es show that Feb-
ruary enlistments totaled 20,900,
almost 2,000 above January's 10-
year record high of 19,000. Before
President Johnson announced the
military buildup for the Viet Nam
war last summer, only 9,000 to
11,000 men were volunteering for
army service each month.
Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, di-
rector of the Selective Service
System, declined to specifically
predict whether any' college stu-
dents would be drafted but did
confirm the large enlistment in-
Easing Pressures
Hershey told The Daily last
night that "draft pressures would
ease" as long as voluntary enlist-
ments continued at a high level.
However, he noted that whenever
draft calls begin to decline, en-
listment totals also begin to drop.
Thus, a point would come at
which it would become necessary
to increase draft calls once again
in order to meet armed forces
plans for a 350,000-man expansion
in total strength by next summer.
The upsurge in enlistments has
been reflected in lower draft calls.
High enlistment figures caused the
Defense Department to cut its
draft quota for this month from
32,900 to 22,400. Hershey said he
foresaw monthly draft calls re-
maining near the 20,000 level for
some time "unless enlistment rates
fall off drastically."
Low April Call
Last week the Defense Depart-
ment issued an April draft call for
21,700 men, the lowest total since
last September.
Despite the upward trend in en-
listments, there are no plans to
cancel the announced series of
deferment tests for college stu-
dents. These tests are scheduled
to begin in mid-May.
A Selective Service spokesman
said if it becomes unnecessary to
draft college students the test re-
sults will be kept on file by local
draft boards to determine who
goes first if college draftees are
needed at some time in the more
distant future.
Hershey also said he had sus-
pended a New Orleans local draft
board member on the basis of
newspaper reports that the man
had been active in the Ku Klux
Hershey identified the member
as Jack M. Helm. He said the
suspension was for 30 days pend-
ing an appeal. If no appeal is
filed, he said, Helm will be re-
moved permanently.
Other requirements stipulate
that you be a citizen of the United
States, or a permanent resident of
it. Married couples can join
VISTA, though they can not have
dependents under 18 years old. As
most of the VISTA work is done
with English speaking people,
there is no language requirement.
A plan presently under consid-
eration would allow college stu-

dents to work for VISTA, while
remaining students. They could
work for four months, perhaps in
the summer, though any four
month peifod would suffice. The
remainder of the year, they would

Governor Says Board

Gov. George Romney yesterday
accepted the resignation of Eugene
Power from the Board of Regents,
thus ending speculation that
Power might be persuaded to
change his mind and resolve his
conflict of interest.
Romney said the Board of Re-
gents have no authority to con-
sider the matter. Twenty four
hours earlier Romney had told a
press conference that he would
wait and see what actions the
Regents would take before detern-
ing any definite course of action.
Romney received Power's letter
of resignation yesterday, thus ful-
filling state ~ statutory require-
ments pertaining to procedure of
resignation for state elected of-
ficials. Questions had previously
been raised as to the validity of

"rather promptly." The new mem-
ber, presumably a Republican, will
not run for election until 1972.

Last night's debate between
Student Government Council pres-
idential candidates Edward Rob-
inson, '67, and Robert Bodkin,
'67E, centered around the type of
issues SGC should act on.
Speaking before a small turn-
out, Badkin said SGC should act
in areas where the student can
derive "immediate benefits." He
felt such matters as the resigna-
tion of a Regent and the draft
should not be dealt with by SGC.

VISTA Recruits Vo

VISTA is again recruiting on
campus as, part of its yearly drive
for volunteers. It will be here
through Friday in the Union and
the SAB.
In its existence of little more
than a year, VISTA, Volunteers
In Service To America, has ex-
panded into an organization with
1678 volunteers in the field, and
another 395 in training.
Past recruitment at the Univer-
sity has done fairly well, said Arch

ticipate as individuals in any pro-
ject that they wish. Also, volun-
teers are assigned as individuals.
Thus, Negroes have been placed
on Indian reservations, migrant
worker camps, and in a number of
Southern areas.
Parsons said that one of the dif-
ficulties confronting the volun-
teer is "a hostility in differing cul-
tures, such as Appalachia and In-
dian reservations." He noted that

Escape Abroad
"Some students go abroad to
escape," observed M. Robert Klin-

national Center and a counselor
there for 25 years. "They are
escaping from all sorts of situa-
tions. Some can't conform to the

"The world must face the fact
that people are travelling more
and can get sick anywh.ere," com-
mented Dr. Donald Schaefer, psy-
chiatrist at the Mental Health
Clinic of Health Service." In
France, for example, the French
should make provisions to care
for the mentally ill, just as we
help foreign students here at
Health Service.
"The language barrier further
complicates the problem. However,
the problem is not great here, as
most of the foreign students can
speak English quite well.
"Half a dozen languages are
spoken among the doctors at
Health Service, and I can contact
the Michigan Society of Neurol-
ogists and Psychiatrists, which has
a panel that collectively speaks. 20
The counselling section of the
International Center usually tries
to solve the problems of foreign!
students here before they become
of the scope to need therapy at

and educational system-coupled

although we don't give any men-
tal tests. Here, only one foreign

tal problem sufficient to interrupt
his study-that is, requiring that
he be hospitalized or sent home."
