Legal Battle
To Contest
4 Detroit CCCO Seeks
To Invalidate New.
Freshman 1-A Status
An undercover legal battle is
. looming over the Michigan Select-
ive Service Board's classification
of all freshmen men as 1-A. Ac-
cording to Ernest Goodman, legal
advisor for the Detroit Central
Committee for Conscientious Ob-
jectors, his group will seek to have
the Michigan Board ruling invali-
V dated by the National Selective
Service Board.
The CCCO has sent an iquiry
concerning the legality of the ac-
tion to the National Board. Arlo
Tatum of the C000 said a breach
of confidence was involved in re-
leasing this fact to the press in an
article which appeared in the
Wayne State University Daily Col-
legian recently.
Tatum said yesterday that his
group had received a reply from
the National Board but was not at
liberty to disclose its contents.
However in a telephone conversa-
tion last night, General Lewis
Hershey, Director of the National
Selective Service Board, stated
that he knew of no such cor-
respondence with the CCCO.
He did say, however, that he was
meeting with the CCCO and other
similar groups for a luncheon con-
ference to discuss matters of mu-
tual interest.
The CCCO contends that if the
practice of classifying all fresh-
men as 1-A is pursued that any
freshman classified as such might
challenge the ruling in the courts
with a reasonable chance of suc-
cess. The organization is pres-
ently looking for just such a case.
ACLU Interested
Local director Ernst Mazey of
the American Civil Liberties Union
said yesterday that his organiza-
tion too was interested in the
ruling, but that it would not con-
template any action until after its
executive board meeting on Octo-
ber 26.
He said that it was "unlikely"
that any court action would be
begun by the ACLU. According to
Mazey, it would have to be de-
' termined first whether or not the
draft ruling was a "violation of
Goodman claims that the fresh-
men 1-A classification is a viola-
tion of National Selective Service
Board or policy for it "takes away
the local board's discretion and
judgment" and that it might "es-
tablish a precedent which could
be applied nationally."
Michigan Selective Service
Board Director Col. Arthur Holmes
said last night that the Michi-
gan board is not violating any
national board policy. He stated
that each local board has the
right to classify any student eith-
er 1-A or II-S.
Holmescommented further that
the Michigan board merely noti-
fied the local boards of their op-
tion in the classification of fresh-
men. He did not explain why all
Michigan local boards were pur-
suing this policy of 1-A classifi-
cation for freshmen.
No Inductions
According to Holmes, "No MVich-
igan student going full time and
satisfactorily pursuing an approv-
ed course of study will be in-
ducted." He said that no fresh-

Enrollment Rise

MICHIGAN DRAFT boards will send 1,500 men aged 26 to
35 through physical examinations in November-first time since
the Korean War this age group has been screened for possible
military service, the Associated Press reported from Lansing.
Col. Arthur Holmes, State Selective Service director, added
that Michigan local boards have not yet received authorization
to induct men over 26. But if the boards cannot fill draft quotas
with men under 26, he said, they will be authorized to call the
older men, youngest first.
SECRETARY OF STATE James Hare and Atty. Gen. Frank
Kelley hold comfortable margins over their Republican opponents,
according to a copyrighted poll published yesterday by the
Detroit News.
Hare has a 64-31 per cent margin over the GOP candidate for
secretary of state, George Washington, a Negro, while Kelleyj
leads former GOP State Chairman Lawrence B. Lindemer by
58-35 per cent, the News poll said.

THERE WILL BE a meeting of the Speakers' Bureau for the
draft referendum tonight at 7:30 in the SGC offices, according to
Ruth Baumann and Bruce Kahn, co-chairmen of the draft com-
mittee. All interested individuals are requested to attend.
VOICE POLITICAL PARTY members will be among the mainr
speakers at an SGC rally this Friday noon on the Diag. The topic
for discussion will be student participation in the University.
Voice also decided last night to attempt to meet with the
Committee on Referral which is discussing the new requirements
for student organizations passed by SGC.
UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT Harlan Hatcher told Flint area
scholarship winners last night that the task of the American
scholar, new style, is to make what is new meaningful.
President Hatcher said about three of every 10 persons in the
United States are in school this fall. He noted that investment
in education is thought to bring a return of 10 to 12 per cent
through increased income during the lifetime of the university-
educated individual.
He continued that education can be related easily to tech-
nical and economic achievements and "the increasingly high level
of living available to larger numbers of people."

Niehuss said the University each
