NEWS WIRE
PONTIAC-SECRETARY OF LABOR W. Willard Wirtz told
a political dinner here in honor of Rep. Billie S. Farnum (D-
Pontiac) last night that he feels "we are moving toward a time
three or five years from now when we will see a comprehensive
system of national service."
Wirtz, who has been working closely on manpower problems
of the Selective Service with the Presidential Advisory Commis-
sion on the Selective Service, said he 'thought such a system
could provide for these elements:
-"the opportunity for each young man and woman to have
served his country (in a military or non-military capacity) for
two years before he or she is 20;
-"a sabbatical not only for college professors, but for many
other professions and occupations as well:" and
-"a chance for those over 65 to re-enter national service"
to avoid the dullness of an uneventful and unchallenging re-
tirement.
WILLIAMSBURG, VA.-GREATER involvement of "urban
man with his outdoor heritage" was called for by University
President Harlan Hatcher last night in an address before the
American Forestry Association.
"It is difficult to commune with nature from a jet plane five
miles above the landscape," Hatcher commented. "Little better
are perceptions gained from an air-conditioned car traversing a
70-mile-per-hour interstate highway."
A major question for those concerned with preservation of
natural beauty and outdoor recreation resources, he said, is that
of involving the increasingly urbanized population with such
matters. People whose only contact comes through the radio or
television or from the windows of a car speeding along a highway
are not likely to have much interest or understanding in their
"outdoor heritage." Indeed, he said, a fifth or sixth generation
of city dwellers may dislike, or even fear, the outdoors.
SESQUIGRAS' GENERAL CO-CHAIRMEN, Danny Syme, '67
and Sue Ness, '68Ed will announce the theme and format of the
weekend at a mass meeting Wednesday night at 7:15 in the
Union Ballroom. A surprise movie will be shown in connection
with the theme. Refreshments will be served and students will be
able to sign up for committees.
DISTINGUISHED ECONOMISTS from throughout the
nation will gather at The University Novembe 17-18 for the
14th annual Conference on the Economic Outlook.
Presented by the University's department of economics and
Extension Service, the event annually attracts leading figures
from business, government, and academic circles.
This year's conference at the Rackham Building will feature
at least six speakers in an assessment of the U.S. economy as a
whole, the Federal budget and defense spending, consumer out-
look, credit and interest rates, and a long-range forecast of the
U.S. economy.

JOSEPH A. PARISI, executive director of the Michigan
Townships Association said that young men and women between
the ages of 18 and 21 are being used by synical professional
politicians.
Annual meetings of state, township, and village officials in
14 congressional districts show what appears to be "overwhelming
opposition" to'the 18-year-old vote, he said yesterday.
The general feelings emerging at these meetings, Parisi said,
is that statewide candidates for office are engaged in some sort
of "dishonesty" or political trickery in supporting the proposition
to amend the state constitution and lower the voting age from
21 to 18.
POSTMASTER Donald G. Bachman of Ann Arbor said yes-
terday that the backlog of third-class mail in Ann Arbor is being
cleared up with the help of 26 extra part-time employes.
He said he expects to be "absolutely current" by Wednesday.
Authorization came through regional postal officials Thurs-
day that allowed the hiring of the extra help and let the experi-
enced mail handlers work overtime on the weekend.

Discussion of
'Draft Topic
Of Teach-In
Disappointing Crowd
Hears 3 Speakers
On Selective Service
By SUSAN ELAN
The draft teach-in sponsored by
Student Government Council and
University Activities Center Sun-
day fell disappointingly short of
expected student participation.
Three speakers representing posi-
tions ranging from complete abo-
lition of the Selective Service Sys-
tem, to alternative service and
support of the present Selective
Service System addressed an aud-
ience of less than 50 students.
Edward Schwartz, vice-president
for national affairs of the U.S.
National S t u d e n t Association,
spoke in favor of alternative serv-
ice. In advocating alternative serv-I
ice Schwartz said NSA is "not
simply trying to make a system
more palatable, we're trying to re-
place a bad set of ideas with a
good one. And we're asking that
this country broaden its entire
conception of what l o y a l t y
means."
As alternatives to military serv-
ice Schwartz suggested work in
the poverty program, civil rights,
the Peace Corps, or in the admin-
istration of a free university.
In Social Interest
Col. A. W. Myers, Michigan
assistant Selective Service direc-
tor, spoke in support of the pres-
ent Selective Service System,
maintaining that "due to man's
basic human nature, the draft is
in the social interest."
Myers went on to say that the
"Selective Service System cannot
be eliminated as long as the
United States is a world power."
Since "war is an instrument of
national policy and as long as
there are have-nots who want
what we have, we must have a way
of providing man power."
Myers admitted that the Selec-
tive Service System is not the
answer to everything, but heI
claimed "that over the years it has
proved its merit by performing the
job it was intended by Congress
to do."

Abolition of Draft
David Harris, president of Stan-
ford University's student body,
represented the position of com-
plete abolition of the military
draft. In reply to Myers, Harris
said that war is never in the so-
cial interest and that it is the goal
of the draft to "collect young men
i to kill or be killed."
Harris added that he does not
believe it is a question of the
have-nots trying to get what we
have, but rather of an "aggressive
government trying to keep the
have-nots, have-nots."
According to Edward Robinson,
'67, president of Student Govern-
ment Council, the poor attendance
of the teach-in does not neces-
sarily represent a lack of student
interest in the draft referendum.
He attributes the lack of student
participation to insufficient pub-
licity.

'U' Among Top Ten
Despite Fewer Real
Dollars from State
By ROBERT KLIVANS
The University yesterday .un-
veiled the largest budget request
in its history, asking for $74.6 mil-
lion in state funds in 1967-68 as
part of its total operating budget
of $93 3 million.
The complete request, which
was sent to the Governor's Budget
Office in Lansing, is $16.5 mil-
lion, or 28%, greater than the
$58 million that the Legislature
granter the University for this
year, and is about $8 million more
than the University has ever re-
quested.
The major elements composing
the budget increase are:
" About $7 million "to main-
tain existing progranis," which in-
cludes "wage and salary increases
to meet competition, inflation fac-
tors for services, supplies, mate-
rials, and 'equipment;"
" $5.9 million for "increased en-
rollment, costs" based on an esti-
mated 1967-68 enrollment of
38,307students (about 2,000 more
than this year),
" $3.1 million for "improve-
ment in instructional and depart-
mental research equipment;" and,
" $.75 million for "improvement
in space rehabilitation."
Program Statement
The budget request was accom-
panied by a program statement,
which argued that the funds were
necessary to halt a'ny decline suf-
fered from past cuts in the re-
quests and to preserve the Uni-
versity as an important resource
of the State.
The report cited a recent grad-
uate school raning study as proof
that the University's position is
being threatened.
Between the Keniston study of
graduate depts. in 1957 and the
American Council on Education
study issued this year, "the Uni-
versity declined in relative rank
in 13 of the 20 disciplines." Taking
into account a third study which
had been prepared in 1924, the
budget report concluded that "the
University ... advanced relatively
from 1924 to 1957, but declined
from 1957 and 1964."
In Top Ten
In the 1966 ACE Report, how-
ever, the University still ranked
among "the top t'en" institutions.
"Therefore," the report states,
"our pride in being able to keep
the University among the top ten,
despite fewer real dollars from the
State with which to work from
1957 to 1966, is tempered by the
apprehension we feel in view of
the relative decline in position
during these years"
The report states that using
1957 as a base year, "tie Univer-
sity in 1966 educated approxi-
mately 43% more students with
only about 31% more real dollars
from the state."
Self-Interest
"The University's appropriation
request is a clear case of self-
interest for the State of Michi-
gan," the report states. :
"The University is an asset
worth protecting . . not Just for
'the intangible prestige, but be-
cause the University's graduate

study opportunities and research
programs attract research projects
and support from the state bene-
fits directly and indirectly."
"And because graduate educa-
tion and inherent research capa-
bility represented by the Univer-
sity . .. is the only type of edu-
cation that provides the basis for
new industry in Michigan, the
consequent increased employment
opportunities, and the broadened
tax base."
The difference between the
state request and the total opera-
ting budget is made up by the pro-
jected student fee income of $17.7
million. an increasenof .5 million

CONDITIONAL DONATION:
Hatcher Accepts 200000 Gift Toward
Professorship in Outdoor Recreation

By MARK R. KILLINGSWORTH
Editor
The University has accepted a
conditional $200,000 gift from
Laurance S. Rockefeller towards
the establishment of a $500,000
endowed professorship in outdoor
recreation, it has been learned.
The chair will be named in
honor of Samuel Trask Dana, the
retired dean of the school of nat-
ural resources. President Harlan
Hatcher, who is scheduled to ad-
dress the convention of the Amer-
ican Forestry Association in. Vir-
ginia this evening, will announce
the~, T~i~ci.' n.v1+a.neQ vf' the&

reation on which Dana served. 3
Conditional Gift
Rockefeller's $200,000 gift was
conditional-a pledge to be re-
deemed if, by the end of 1968,
the University has secured the
$300,000 additional needed from
new funds or expenditures from
existing sources.
($500,000 is the total amount
needed to establish an endowed
chair. The $500 000 principal is
then invested, and the salary for
the professor is derived from the.
annual interest on the invest-
ment.)

While one administrator said
that the possibility that the ad-
ditional $245,000 might not be
raised in time was a "very re-
mote contingency" which the Uni-
versity did not consider, a key
source commented last night that
"we haven't being doing very well
on our endowed professorships in
the $55-M fund drive campaign-
we'll just have to accept this wift
as a challenge."
Only one endowed professorship
--the Dana chair-has yet re-
ceived any donation.
