Seventy-Six Years of Editorial Freedom
Placement Post Faces Delue of Employer


The national shortage in quali-
fied, available persons for elemen-
tary and secondary teaching posts
has led to a flood of requests for
University graduates far in ex-
cess of persons registered with the
Bureau of Appointments and Oc-
cupational Information.
Evart W, Ardis, director of the
Bureau, described the academic
year 1965-66 as "the busiest, most
rewarding year the University has
experienced in the placement of
its graduating seniors and alumni.
"Business, industry, government
and institutions descended on our
campus in unprecedented numbers
searching for graduates in all dis-
ciplines. Salaries moved upward,

last year has created an inflow of inquiries from over 100 Univer-

man, "not a single University student has fled to Toronto" and
only one Michigan State University student had done so.
AN AKRON UNIVERSITY student is suing the school be-
cause he was refused a college degree and is in danger of being
drafted before he completes his studies.
William R. McClenathen II, who still is studying at Akron,
says he faces possible induction into the armed forces because he
lost his student deferment in January, when he was supposed to
graduate. McClenathen was refused a degree because he missed
the required "C" average by .0047 of a point. He said he had a
"C" average in three of four categories but failed to hold the
average in over-all work.

To Suggest

In Draft Revisions
tional Commission on Selective
Service will tell President John-
son next week the nation's draft
laws must be revolutionized to
provide for a lottery and the
drafting of youngest men first.
Sources said commission mem-
bers believe these changes, if im-
plemented into law by Congress,
will go a long way toward ending
built-in inequities and unfairness
of the present system.
Ends Discrimination
In particular, insiders said, it is
thought the new proposals will
help end complaints that the pres-
ent system discriminates against
the culturally deprived Negro who
is not able to get a student defer-
"I think the lottery system is
going to be protection against any
possible racial discrimination," one
source said. "As a matter of fact,
it should help reduce it."
Another source said "there's
nothing in the drafting of young-
est first that would discriminate
against anybody. The issue of dis-
crimination does not come in at
Under the commission's plans,
all youth's 181/2 and 19 would have
top priority in the draft classifica-
tion instead of men 26, 25 and
24, as is the case now. After reg-
istration and examination, these
youths would enter the 1-A clas-
sification pool and be chosen for
the draft by lot.
Deferments Continue
The commission's plans at pres-
ent, sources said, call for the con-
tinuance of student deferments,
but with this significant change:
after graduation the student must
go back into the lottery pool and
th'us face the same exposure to
the draft as youths who elected
to delay their education.
There also are reports that the
commission will propose that grad-
ual abolition of student defer-
ments be given strong consider-
ation. But sources said the defer-
ment programs would continue-
at least for the present-under the
commission's recommendations.
The commission rejected any al-
ternative to the existing system,
including the proposed all-volun-
teer professional standing Army
and the concept of national serv-
ice in lieu of armed service which
has been advocated by many lead-
ing administration officials.
Commission members decided to
stay with the present Selective
Service set-up, the sources said,
but agreed it must be drastically
National Standards
Specifically, the commission will
propose that clear, uniform na-
tional standards for the classifica-
tion of all draft-age men be pro-
mulgated and thus eliminate the
present reliance on the more than
4,000 local draft boards in the
nation. The boards have 'inter-
preted Selective Service guidelines
in a myriad of conflicting ways.
Commission members also are
reported to feel at this time that
a national draft call should be
established in place of the current
method of assigning quotas on a
local basis. This, the sources said,

EDUCOM aims at practical ap-

an "information overload," ac-

EDUCOM is to apply new develop-

Dean Robert D. Vinter told an

faculty that he could see an "es-

dents that might result in agita-

He expressed hope, however,

curriculum would begin as early
as next fall.
