Of Teachers,
To Change
The' State Board of Education
has tentatively approved a revised
teacher certificationacode. The
new requirements, according to
Edward Pfau of the State Bureauj
of Higher Education, will allow'
colleges and universities to define
and administer their own teacher
education programs, and within
a liberalized code subject to Board
The present University require-
ment of a 30-hour major and two
15-hour minors for secondary
teachers will be replaced by a 30-
20 one major-one minor pattern,
Malcolm A. Lowther, chairman of
the education school's undergrad-
uate committee, indicated.
The elementary certification
program will be changed to allow
the prospective teacher a choice
between the 30-20 sequence or a
group of three 20-hour minors,
instead of the currentrrequirement
of four 15-hour minors.
Final Adoption
After study by education groups
throughout the state and a public
hearing in Lansing April 26, the
code will be reviewed by the Board
in early May, with final adoption
possible as early as June. The cur-
rent certification code has notj
been changed since 1939.
Revisions in the code will not
affect students presently complet-
ing teacher certificates, Lowther
said. The program will be imple-
mented over a two-year period
from July, 1968, to July, 1970.t
Juniors entering the School of
Education this' fall may, be the
first affected by the new code.
Curriculum Committees
Changes in specific course re-
quirements will'be determined by
the University. At the present
time a group of curriculum sub-
committees in the literary college
is considering changes in course
requirements to accompany the.
new 30-20 program.
The code also provides-the State*
Board of Education with authority
to approve and periodically review
the programs of teacher training
A reciprocity section is included
in the proposed code for teachers
from other states and graduates
of Michigan schools who want to
teach outstate. Michigan certifi-
cation will be valid in states with
similar certification codes.
The proposed code also provides
for raising the minimum require-
ment for permanent certification
from the present 10 semester hours
of graduate work beyond a bach-
elor's degree to 15 hours.

Draft Card
Burning Law
Ruled Illegal
BOSTON (P').-The First U.
Court of Appeals ruled Monday
that the amendment to the Selec-
tive Service Law which prohibits
destruction or mutilation of draft
cards is unconstitutional.
"Any singling out of persons
engaged in a protest for special
treatment strikes at the very core
of what the First Amendment pro-
tects," Chief Judge' Bailey Aldrich
said in the ruling.
The ruling was made in the case
of David Paul O'Brien, 21, of
Framingham, who was given a six-
year prison sentence in Federal
Court in Boston after publicly
burning his drafty card on the steps
of the South Boston Courthouse.
Upholds Conviction
Judge Aldrich upheld the con-
viction, however, because O'Brien
had violated the Selective Servie
law by not having his draft card
in his possession at all times.
He remanded the case to Fed-
eral Court with instructions to
vacate the six-year sentence and
impose a new one, saying he fear-
ed the six-year sentenceghad been
imposed because of the public

be overruled by appeal to the U.S.
Supreme Court. Until then the de-
cision is legally binding in the
jurisdiction of the First Court of
Appeals and is available to other
courts as a precedent in similar
The court pointed out a "sharp
distinction between the public
gesture of burning a draft card,
which is a demonstration of free
speech, and the more basic action
of failure to retain possession of
the card."
Must Carry Cards
Judge Aldrich held that the Se-
lective Service regulation pro-
viding that registrants must carry
cards at all times is a legitimate
requirement. He suggested to U.S.
Atty. Paul F. Markham that in the
future all persons who burn their
cards be charged only with failure
to have the cards in their posses-
The Spring Mobilization to End
the War in Vietnam has called for
a rally in New York April 15, at
which a mass draft-card burning
protest may take place.

Society at Cornell University in
Ithaca, New York, have been soli-
citing pledges to burn draft cards
"not to be made binding until 500
signatures have been gathered."
