DIXIECRATS DISLIKE LOTTERY:
Congressional Fight Seen over Draft

(Continued from Page 1)
that the new changes will bring
equity to the draft. "The question
is: how do you choose? The new
lottery system seems to be the
fairest method.
"As for students being drafted
and thus putting off going to col-
lege-we can be sure that some
will never come back to school.
But.- most students would come
back with a more serious and ma-
ture attitude. Experience with stu-
dents returning after World War
II has confirmed this."'
Other criticisms of the new pro-
posals were concerned with the
curtailment of deferments for
graduate students. According to
the new order of induction, grad
students would be placed into a
pool with the current group of 19-
year-olds and drafted according to
the lottery lists.
Max Crossman, assistant dean of
the Rackham School of Graduate
Studies, did not view the new
system as a discouragement to
graduate work.
"I don't believe that the with-
holding of deferments for grad-
uate students will have any great
effect on future enrollment," he
said. "If there will be any drop
at all, it will probably be less
than 10 per cent which is really
insignificant."
Prof. William A. Gamson, so-
ciology department, agreed. "Al-
though the issue is quite nebulous
at the moment, it seems that the
concern over no more deferments
for grad students is unnecessary.
By the time students reach the

stage that they are thinking about
grad school, they will have pass-
ed through the critical period of
the draft. Their need for a defer-
ment will be over."
Local objections to the Presi-
dent's proposals stemmed mainly
from a distaste of the entire selec-
tive service system rather than
of any one particular aspect.
Prof. Anatol Rappoport, mathe-
matical biology, said, "I am against
any form of the draft either by
selective means or by a lottery. .1
think the draft should be abol-
ished!"
Skip Taube, a non-student mem-
ber of Voice-SDS, felt that it was
useless to discuss his objections to
the new changes in the system
because the ultimate result is the
same.
"Whether you use a draft sys-
tem based on a lottery or a sys-
tem, based on a selection process,
you are still forcing men to kill
in a war which they want no part
of," he said.
Mike Zweig, teaching fellow,
felt the same. "We have no choice
in this matter. The draft must
be abolished."
Discussion of the new draft pro-
posals as they relate directly to
the campus centers on President
Hatcher's Commission on the
Draft and Ranking. The commis-
sipn met last night to discuss any
changes the group might make in
response to the proposed new sys-
tem.
Dean Haber opened the meeting
by asking, "What influence, if. any,
should such new developments as

the report of the President's Com-
mission on Military Manpower and
President Johnson's speech to
Congress, have on the proceeding
of this commission?"j1
Commission member, Ruth Bau-
mann, '68, replied, "The issue is
what do we do about ranking for,
this academic year. If this is our
function then we still have some-j
thing to do."
Prof. Kelly then explained to the,
Commission w h a t presumably;
would be the status of undergrad-
uate deferments until the pro-1
posed lottery system goes into ef-
fect.
"For the next three years, peo-I

ple in college now will be de-
ferred. Whether they will all be
deferred or whether there will
continue to be deferred on the
basis of class ranks is a moot
question."
Thus, Kelly concluded, "Con-
ceivably all our work will be in
vain. Or our work may be used
for the next three years."
The commision tentatively de-
cided that as long as the Selective
Service System required any in-
formation from the University,
they still had a function. This
decided, they returned to their
deliberations on the University,
ranking, and local draft boards.
