LANSING-Michigan local draft boards today were ordered to
deliver 616 men for induction into the Army during March.
Col. Arthur Holmes, State Selective Service director, said an
additional 400 former .liimted service registrants also . will be
ordered for induction during March.

found qualified for service, under njental standards established
by the Defense Department, Holmes said. He said a separate
call by local draft boards will be issued for the additional 400
men, probably around March 1.
Previous calls for this year have been 977 men in January,
and 529 in February.
NEW YORK-Columbia College has barred a teacher of Eng-
lish from his scheduled spring semester courses after he gave
an A grade to all the students in one class, partially as a pro-
test against the draft and the war in Vietnam.
The college English committee refused Richard G. Tristman,
24, permission to teach his courses during the current term, but
continued his salary. The instructor ;said subsequently he will
take a new position at Bennington (Vt.) College in September.
Tristman was offered a chance by the committee to change
his grading procedures, but refused. "To grade students," he said,
"is, in a sense, to treat them like products in a meat market."
