JAKARTA, INDONESIA-The prosecution Friday demanded
the death penalty for former Foreign Minister Subandrio,
charging he aided in the Communist-led coup attempt last year.
Winding up the state's case in the treason trial of President
Sukarno's onetime No. 2 man, the military court prosecutor made
the death demand at the end of a four-hour sum-up.

nounced yesterday, the November draft quota has been reduced
from 43,700 men to 37,600-
The Pentagon announced also that 12,100 men will be in-
ducted in December, the lowest total since March 1965. In part,
this is attributable to a moratorium on inductions during the
Christmas season-from Dec. 16 to Jan. 1.
All the men drafted in November and December will go
into the Army.
The Defense Department said it anticipates that in January
it will ask Selective Service to induct about 33,500 men, based on
the average taken in the last six months.
liminary action to lessen the confusion regarding student organi-
zations' complaints about University policy. The Council pro-
posed two methods for challenging policies: an organization may
initiate discussion on its own by indicating its intent via a written
statement to the Council, or it may request the assistance of SGC
in filing is grievance.
In other business, a Committee on Rules and Regulations was
proposed. Its duties would be to familiarize organizations with
existing rules, review current regulations, and assume a general
policing function against violations by student organizations.
THE AD HOC COMMITTEE on the Disclosure Question will
issue its report Monday on the University's compliance with the
House Un-American Activities subpoena of Aug. 11. The report,
which represents over a month's study by the committee, will be
given at a Faculty Assembly meeting in the Rackham Amphi-
theater. The meeting will start at 3:30 and is open to all faculty
members. Copies of the report are being sent to Assembly mem-
bers today for arrival Monday.
TWO PUBLIC PROGRAMS will be held as part of the major
conference on the death-of-God theology to be held at the Uni-
versity Oct. 26-29.
Featured speakers will be two of the leading proponents of
radical theology. Thomas J.J. Altizer will speak on "The Kingdom
of God and Death of God" at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27 in Michigan
Union Ballroom. William Hamilton will give a presentation of his
views, with a panel response, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 28, in Rackham

Human Virus
Cause of Leuk

An ultra - microscopic organism
containing a pearl-like string of
dark DNA bodies may be the cause
of human leukemia.
Dr. William H. Murphy of the
Medical School's Department of
Microbiology is trying to find evi-
dence that the villainous agent in
human leukemia is a virus.
Leukemia is a blood cancer di-
sease characterized by abnormal
numbers of leucocytes, or white
blood cells, in the blood steam. The
