ew Hearing in DraftCase

ONE OF THE NATION'S chief anti-poverty organizations,
VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America), yesterday began a
three-day recruiting program in Ann Arbor.
VISTA, "the domestic Peace Corps," hopes to expand its
strength above the 3,500 volunteers now working in Indian
reservations, migrant worker camps, Job Corps centers, urban'
slums, among the rural poor and with the mentally retarded.
Recruitment at the University is being carried on by three
field representatives from 9 to 4:30 p.m. in room 3200 of the
Student Activities Bldg. (today and tomorrow) at 4 and 7:30 p.m.
in the Multipurpose room of the UGLI.
ABOUT 25 CLERGYMEN and laymen from Ann Arbor are
in Washington today to join some 2,000 other church leaders
who will express "inner anguish and penance" regarding Vietnam.
A silent vigil at the White House today will be followed by a
march on the Capitol. Meetings with congressmen and senators
and interfaith workshops to develop programs of citizen concern
are also planned for the two day interfaith vigil.

PENTAGON CALLED yesterday for the drafting of 2.229
doctors, including a first-time induction of osteopaths, beginning
in July.
The request, placed with Selective Service, is "necessary to
provide the health services required by our armed forces," the
Defense Department announcement said.
This summer, the services will begin losing several hundred
doctors drafted in mid-1966 at the start of the Vietnam buildup.
Not enough physicians have volunteered for active duty in
the Army and Navy to offset the loss of physicians who will be

To Bar Draft Board
The U.S. Circuit Court of Ap-
peals in New York ruled yesterday
that federal courts have jurisdic-
tion over certain Selective Service
System procedures and ordered
that a case involving the reclas-
sification of two University stu-
dents be heard by a lower court.
The ruling reversed the deci-
sion of a U.S. District Court judge
who dismissed the request by Pete?

their local draft boards from re-
voking their student deferments.
The district court had ruled that
federal courts have no jurisdiction
in the case.
Reluctant to Intervene
In overturning the lower court
ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals
said that it was reluctant to inter-
vene in Selective Service matters,
but decided the allegations that
"the draft boards have unlawfully
suppressed criticism must take
precedence." The case will now be
returned to the district judge.
The case arouse out of a sit-in
protesting the Viet Nam war at
the Ann Arbor draft board on Oc-
tober 15, 1965 in' which 39 Uni-
versity students and faculty mem-
bers were arrested. A number of
the men who sat in lost their II-S
student deferment as a result.
Shortt, Wolff, and the Aherican
Civil Liberties Union argued that
the reclassifications were illegal
because they represented punish-
ment without a trial or due pro-
cess of law. The government based
its defense on the procedural
grounds that the federal courts

effect, held the government's de-

district court does have jurisdis-

junction must now be made solely
on the substantive question of
whether, in fact, the reclassifica-
tions were an abridgement of
Wolff's and Shortt's civil liberties.
In explaining its decision, the
appeals court stated: "Here it is
