80 Rejected
' Makes Error OnI
* Space Needs, Size
Of Freshman Class
Due to a miscalculation in avail-
able space estimates made last
year, approximately 80 students
who had been rejected by the Uni-
versity in May were readmitted to
the freshman class in mdsm
-mer. About one-third of these are
now enrolled at the University.
According to Gayle Wilson. ex-
ecutive associate director of ad-
missions, the miscalculation was
based on four factors.
There was a decrease of about
three per cent in the number of
high school graduates both locally
and nationally. The Admissions
Office had hoped, said Miss Wil-
son, that the rising percentage of
high school graduates going to
college would compensate for this
decrease. There were, however, 500
fewer applications this year than
Selective Service
The second factor, said Miss
Wilson, was the smaller percent-
age of acceptances of admission.
The Selective Service played a
major role in that many boys en-
rolled in the University to escape
the draft, then withdrew. This
left many openings, mostly in the
engineering college.
This withdrawal of men due by
the draft situation was "most pro-
nounced at schools with the high-
est academic standards" observed
Miss Wilson. Because of the Selec-
tice Service requirement that class
standing be in the upper half,
male students preferred going to
a school where this could be easily
Because of these three factors,
the University enrolled about 200
fewer students this year than last
year out of the same number of
admissions. The freshman class
numbers approximately 4300.
Building Program
Miss Wilson also stated that the
University building program is
finally catching up with the space
needed.When it became apparent
that more spaces were available
than anticipated, the Admissions
Office re-evaluated applications
from out-of-state students in or-
der to find the best qualified and
most interested. Miss Wilson said
that people who had expressed an
interest in Michigan even though
rejected and those who had indi-
cated the University as their first
choice were considered.
Many Schools Open j
Another consideration was the
school to which the students were
applying. Many schools had closed
their admissions completely while,
others had a number of openings.
All qualified in-state students
had been accepted, so only out-of-
state applicants were involved
These students received a letter
the first week of July "inviting"
them to attend the University if
they were still interested. Many
of the 80 had already made com-
mitments to other schools that
they did not want to break, but
about 25 promptly accepted the
offer and are now enrolled.
This is the first time the Uni-
versity has had more space than it
expected. However the tightening
up of the Selective Service regula-
tions was a factor that the Uni-
versity planners could not foresee,
Miss Wilson said.

JACKSON, Mich.-At least three persons have been injured
in what police described as a "wide open racial riot" which broke
out in this southern Lower Michigan city an hour before midnight
State police were ordered into the community of 50,000 per-
sons which has a Negro population of 7,000 to 8,000, Sgt. Paul
Rand of the Jackson police, said.
Rand said "it reportedly started as a white-colored at-
tempted shooting, but no one was actually shot."
He said Jackson police had asked for assistance and all
available state troopers in the immediate area were being mobil-
ized and sent into the city.
Rand said at least two of the injured were hospitalized for
DAYTON-ABOUT 1000 Ohio National Guardsmen were on
duty last night in an effort to curb racial disorder which started1
with the fatal shooting of a Negro man.
The guardsmen were patroling the streets, but no new serious
outbreaks were reported.
The fatal shooting, which occurred early Thursday, touched
off a series of sporadic disturbances which continued last night.
OTTAWA-PARLIAMENT yesterday ordered an immediate
end to Canada's week-old nationwide rail strike. Union leaders
said they would comply and began notifying the 118,000 strikers
to return to work.
There was no immediate indication on how soon the trains
would be running again.
Parliamentary action came in a new law ordering both sides
to return to the bargaining table and giving the strikers an 18
per cent pay boost.

LANSING-STUDENT DRAFT deferments in Michigan have
dropped by 20 per cent in the past six months, Selective Service
Headquarters said yesterday.
Reclassification of graduating seniors, stricter deferment
rules and retention of most entering freshmen in a draft-eli-

Arthur Holmes.
Student deferments totaled 83,763 in February but were down
to 66,668 by Aug. 1. Holmes said most entering college are being
kept in 1-A classification, but can have their induction postponedF
if they are full-time satisfactory students.t

The five-week construction strike which took place at the beginning of the summer is taking its toll in unfinished apartments this
fall. The off-campus housing office reports that landlords are "doing their best" to get their places ready. Many houses, however, are
still notsready for occupancy (such as the one pictured above where the residents must live in the living room because their bedroom

Students Ask End To

With Liberation Front
The National Student Asocia-
tion Congress, in' what one dele-
gate called a "critical but loyal"
resolution, passed early yesterday,
called on the Johnson adminis-
tration to end bombing of North
Viet Nam and take other measures
designed to reachka cease-fire and
an eventual "withdrawal of for-
eign troops from Viet Nam."
Delegates to the congress, which
ended last night, resolved that
the administration has a "wrong,
brutal Viet Nam policy, out of con-
sistency with its own ends," which
must be replaced by immediate
negotiations with the National
Liberation Front made possible by
a cessation of all war operations.
"Our government has made mis-
judgments and has a negative
policy," the resolution said. "Es-
calation has made stable govern
Iment impossible" and has "re-
ated a climate in which effective'
economic assistance is impossible."

The.delegates also resolved that
the .S. should disassociate itself

The congress, composed of about
400 delegates from 304 colleges
and universities, also passed a
resolution on the drug LSD. They
called for a "relaxation in laws
governing LSD to enable further
research" on it.
In another resolution, the dele-
gates found the policy of the U.S.
in regard to Communist China un-
realistic. They urged the U.S. to
support the seating of the Peo-
ples Democratic Republic of China,
issue formal U.S. recognition of
China, invite China to all confer-
ences on nuclear weapons and
open trade relations with her.
Condemn 1966 Rights Bill
The delegates also moved to
"condemn" the Civic Rights Bill
of 1966 as inadequate. They called
it. "a weak and token response to
the needs of minority groups" to
have discrimination ended.
Another strongly worded resolu-
tion condemned St. Johns Univer-
sity in New York for action that
university took against several
professors, alledgedly for criticiz-
ing the administration.

SGC To Push Student Vote


-E-~ 1

A two-fronted campaign to in-
crease student involvement in local
government has been mapped for
the coming year by the Student
Government Council.
During the fall semester, efforts
to gain passage of the 18-year-old
vote referendum on the state's
November ballot will be made
through publicity and a possible
survey of state political figures.
During the winter semester, SGC
will again attempt to register elig-
ible students for voting in Ann
Arbor. The winter SGC campaign
will be the second year of con-
centrated voter registration activ-
ity by the organization.I
