Presidential Draft Appeal

By ROGER RAPOPORT
The Presidential draft appeal
board announced yesterday that
it has voted to uphold the 1-A
classification of six University
students who sat-in at the Ann
Arbor draft board last Oct. 15.
"That's the belt that runs to-
ward the induction station," Na-
tional Selective Service Director
Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey told
The Daily in a phone interview.
But Ernest Mazey, president of
the Michigan Chapter of the

American Civil Liberties Union,
said he is "confident that the belt
will not run smoothly. We think
the court will take the use of the
Selective -Service system to punish
dissenters more seriously than
Gen. Hershey does." ,

Mazey said the ACLU will
"probably seek a restraining or-
der," to prevent the induction of

"Besides the law says that the

University P r e s i d e n t Harlan
Hatcher voiced dismay over the
decision. Earlier Hatcher has sug-
gested that the use of the Selec-
tive Service as a "punitive meas-
ure . . . warps and could even de-
grade the entire concept of the
draft. I don't think you should
draft a student because he pro-
tests."
But Col. Holmes contended yes-
terday that, "They've been given
all their rights and -benefits.
Somebody has got to go into the
service. I don't feel these individ-
uals are any different than any-
body else."
Some critics of the reclassifica-
tion move have contended that if
the students actually violated the
law the Selective Service should
take them to court, not draft
them.
Hershey-bars
"A lot of people argue you
should send these boys to prison
instead of the army," says Gen.
Hershey.
"The answer is quite simple.
Congress passed a draft law to get
these boys into the armed forces,
not into jail."

University Affairs states that the
increased pressures due to the
year-round operation of the Uni-
versity had been "seriously detri-
mental to both student and fac-
ulty."
Participation
It asks the University to "take
the value of student participation
into consideration," when planning
the academic year. It outines a
variety of alternatives to the pres-
ent schedule including shortening
of class hours in a term or creat-
ing shorter spring-summer terms.
The report further calls for
greater flexibility in course elec-
tions, in the number of hours that
a stuent must take inabaigiven
term, and in the availablility and
use of time permits.
"There should be provisions for
the student who is heavily in-
volved in University activities dur-
ing a given semester to take re-
duced credit loads for semester.
and make up credits at a later
time." the report says.
Scholarshipi
Also included is a proposal for
increased scholarship and loan aid
to students who must work, but
wish to participate in student af-
fairs.
A second major academic area of
the report concerns faculty and
course evaluations. The report
states that teacher evaluation can
serve three functions: to act as
a guide to the effectiveness of in-
struction for the individual pro-
fessor or fellow 2) to measure
teaching effectiveness in respect
to tenure and promotion questions
for Deans and department heads
3) to aid the sutdent body in mak-
inz course elections.
The report, however, adds that
if "Deans and department heads
are going to use student evalua-
tions it should be done on a syste-
matic and consistent basis rather
than in an informal questioning
of a few students."
"There should be an active effort
to promote the development with-
in the University of the best pos'
sible forms and methods for the
evaluation of teaching." the com-
mittee concludes.

accept preclassification appointments for seniors only Wed.. Sept.
21 through Wed.. Sept. 28 it was announced yesterday. Beginning
Sept. 29, appointments will be accepted for juniors and second-
semester sophomores.
James W. Shaw, chairman of faculty counselors for juniors
and seniors, said that this new preclassification procedure is
"something of an experiment." "We're trying to see," he added,
"if a priority system is an improvement over the present catch-
as-catch can system. We really don't know if this will work a
hardship on juniors and sophomores. Welthink not. but' we would
appreciate hearing if it does."
Shaw sair his office would appreciate students making their
appointments in person, as time schedules will be given to stu-
dents only as they make their appointments. There will be no
mass distribution of time schedules this year.

Ideas For
Involvement
Stronger OSA, Joint
Advisory Council, New
SGC Body Called For
By SUSAN SCHNEPP
The Senate Assembly approved
yesterday a special report on 'The
Role of the Student in University
Affairs' calling for greater student
participation at all levels of the
University.
The report, a year and a half in
the making, was drawn up by an
ad hoc committee of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, and recommends that:
-A Joint Advisory Council of
students and faculty be estab-
lished;
-The office of the Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs be given
status and authority equal to that
of the other vice-presidents;
-A new, student government
structure consisting of Undergrad-
uate and Graduate Assemblies and
Student Executive Committee be
set up;
-Student participation in aca-
demic matters at the departmental
and school level be promoted;
-Formal and informal student-
faculty interaction be extended
beyond the classroom, and;
-Effort be made to avoid un-
necessary secrecy and to improve
the flow of information within the
Univeristy.
Resolution
A resolution passed by the As-
sembly charged the subcommittee
on Student Relations to study
methods of implementing the re-
port. The sub-committee will over-
see establishment of the new
Joint-Advisory Council.
The Joint - Advisory Council,
composed of faculty and students
will "serve as a line of communi-
See Text, Pages 2 and 8
cation between the various units
and levels of the University." It
is expected to aid the SACUA
sub-committee on implementing
recommendations made by the re-
port.
Dubbed the 'Knauss Report' af-
ter Prof. Robert Knauss of the
Law School, chairman of the com-
mittee, the report develops a phi-
losophy of student participation in
which "the student should be al-
lowed to take his place as a full
participating member of the Uni-
versity community," and "help
formulate and enforce the rules
he is expected to observe, and have
the opportunity to influence all
phases of the University's life."
Student Participation
While recognizing the need for
student participation, the report
states that because the University
is widely decentralized and many
initial decisions are made at the
departmental or school level, the
student's role in most matters
"can be only that of advisor or
consultant."
"In certain areas, such as the
making of rules governing student
behavior, students should engage
in the actual decision-making....
The student's role as an advisor
must be institutionalized and
taken in good faith by all parties,
if it is to be effective," says the
report.
Ad Hoc Committees
Rather than appoint students
to serve on standing University
faculty committees, the report
recommends that the council
"should have the power to estab-
lish special student-faculty ad hoc
committees for the most effective
student participation" on particu-

lar problems.
The report says that the office
of the Vice-President for Student
Affairs has the greatest impact on
students' lives.
Unrecognized
But it goes on to say that, "At
the present time the formal or-
ganization of the University ..
does not recognize this importance.
