BERKELEY - Debate on the1
draft and proposals for politicalI
action dominated the . National
Conference of Students for a
Democratic Society here Dec. 27-
A two day meeting of the Na-
tional Council - composed of de-!
legates from SDS chapters around
the country-was followed by two
days of smaller workshops, which
covered subjects including elec-
toral politics, student power, edu-
cational changes, white radicalsj
and black, student syndicalism,
the hippy revolt, and the high
schools and junior colleges,
The schedule for the National
Council had originally called for
first taking up procedural and
organizational issues, such as the
set up of the national office, and
later ideological issues, such as
the draft. But a determined group
of delegates, including Eric Ches-
ter from Voice, the local SOS2
chapter, campaigned for and won
a reversal of the agenda. Ideologi-
cal issues came first.
Itturned out that the draft
proposals took so long that proce-
dural and organizational issues
were entirely crowded off the
By a vote of 53 to 10, the Na-1
tional Council passed probably

has yet approved.

The Resoluti

Following are portions of
the anti-draft resolution adopt-
ed by the SDS National Coun-
cil in Berkeley Dec. 28.
1) SDS reaffirms its opposi-
tion to the U.S. government's
immoral, illegal, and genocidal
war against the Vietnamese
people in their struggle for self-
2) SDS reaffirms its opposi-
tion to conscription in any
form . . .
3) SDS recognizes that the
draft is intimately connected
with the requirements .of the
economic system and the for-
eign policy of the U.S.
4) SDS opposes and will or-
ganize against any attempt to
legitimize the Selective Service
System by reforms. The pro-
posals for a lottery or for com-
pulsory national service would
not change the essential pur-
pose of the draft-to abduct
young men to fight in aggres-
sive wars.
5) SDS believes that a sense
or urgency must be developed
that will-move people to leave
the campus and organize a
movement of resistance to the
draft and the war, with its base
in poor, working class, and
middle lass communities.
6) SDS therefore encourages
all young men to resist the
draft. Sinse individual protest
