THE PENTAGON is lowering its draft standards again in
order to obtain 40,000 more men for remedial military training,
the Associated Press reported yesterday.
The third revision of draft standards this year provides for
rescreening of men now classified IY: fit for service only in time
of declared war or national emergency.
The latest step is part of Secretary of Defense Robert S.
McNamara's plan to draft and give special training to borderline
cases in order to make them qualified for general military service.
An earlier lowering of standards was designed to pick up
40,000 men. Eventual aim is to qualify 100,000 such men this fiscal
The lowered standards annnounced Tuesday are stilll higher
than those in effect during the Korean War. About 2.4 million
men now are classified 1Y.
SAN FRANCISCO STATE faculty recently approved collec-
tive bargaining by a 313 to 139. vote. On the same election, the
faculty voted not to allow part-time instructors a voice in the
election of a bargaining agent.
Although all Califonia state college faculties are consider-
ing collective bargaining possibilities, San Francisco State is the
only one to proceed with a vote. The faculty there views col
lective bargaining as a tool to demand better pay and working
conditions from the state legislature.

PANHELLENIC ASSOCIATION voted last night to allocate

quotas will be defined by house capacity and will be determined
by consultation of the individual chapter's rush chairman and
financial advisor with the Panhellenic advisor."

CHICAGO (P)-Striking teachers picketed the city's eight
junior colleges yesterday and a spokesman. for the Board of
Junior Colleges said the board will ask the Circuit Court to inter-
, A spokesman for the teachers' union said the strike was
called because six weeks of negotiation have been stalemated by
what he called the board's "impossible preconditions" to dis-
cussion of terms of an agreement on pay and working con-
A board spokesman said the board cannot, under a recent
court decision, enter into a conventional contract such as thoseI
between unions and private industry.
The effectiveness of the strike was not immediately apparent.
Jim Mundy, organization director, said at least 450 members of
Local 1600 of the American Federation of Teachers refused to
report for work today. John Gianpoulous, assistant executive
director of the board, said morning classes were in session.
The strike coincided with scheduled midterm examinations
in some of the schools. When junior college faculty members
chose the AFT as their bargaining agent some weeks ago, Norman
Swenson, president of Local 1600, said the union would ask forI
$2,000 across-the-board salary increases for teachers. Their pay
ranges now from $6,450 to $15,930 a year.
FEDELE F. FAURI, dean of the University School of Social
Work, has been named president of the American Public Welfare
Association for the coming year, beginning Jan. 1, 1967.
The first Michigan resident to head the 7,000-member Asso-
ciation, Dean Fauri will serve during the University's Sesquicen-
tennial year. The organization is composed of state and local wel-
fare directors from all parts of the country.
Fauri is a past president of the Council on Social Work
Education and the Nationaly Conference on Social Welfare. He
is a former director of the Michigan Department of Social Wel-
fare and has been a federal advisor on welfare problems for
many years.

As president of UAC, Zulauf

but with all personnel associ-
ated with the Union and the
League. His job entails not just
president of the activities cen-'
ter, but also chairing the Board
of Directors of the Union, a
job that utilizes well the traits
he learned as public relations
chairman of UAC.
Said Zulauf, "It's exciting to.
see how successful men. work,
to feel the pulse beat of the
University," as he does in work-
ing and associating with the
faculty, vice-presidents and
other administrators. "The as-
sociations made through my ac-
tivities have been an extreme-
ly valuable experience."
Several things influenced Zu-
lauf's entrance into public life.
His first- semester here was
spent studying, his average was
a 3.5. But, he felt that, "This

Working on the public rela-
tions committee, Zulauf learn-
ed how to relate and explain

a year and a half ago. The pro-
gram this year has initiated
30-40 per cent new projects
and the breadth of the orga-
nization extends from academic
conferences to Screamers, from
student travel to creative arts.
UAC is the "largest, most ac-
tive student activities organi-
zation in the country," boast-
ed its president. One of the
most satisfying things about
UAC for Zulauf is that it ac-
tually does "something specif-
ic for others on campus and
doesn't just argue or waste time
and money. UAC gives the in-
dividual responsibility for a
project or program and expects
him to achieve a goal,, to car-
ry it out. The key to the or-
ganization is good people, not
structure, and I think we have
those people." He added that,
"the most exciting thing is
watching a project grow from
conception to accomplishment."
UAC is constantly trying new
things such as the closed-cir-
cuit MSU football game, tele-
cast in order to fulfill its re-
sponsibility to the campus. "The

lasting at least until the end .of
the business day.
The sit-in plan is part of a state-
ment drafted last night at an open
meeting of Voice political party,
the social action committee of the
social work school, and other in-
terested people.
The group takes the stand that
to sit-in is a personal choice and
one which has to be made by each
individual. Thus, the decision of
tonight's mass meeting cannot be
held binding an the minority, and
the sit-in will be held if a signifi-
cant number of students agree to
'the action.
The sit-in will feature discus-
sion of student power by teaching
fellows and faculty members. A
spokesman claimed last night that
commitmentsyhave been made by
several faculty members.
The statement explains the sit-
in proposal as a response to the
failure . of the administration to
satisfactorily answer the demands
of students on class rank, the sit-
in ruling and the administration's
use of the committee system which
the proposal claims is "a tradi-
tional administrational move de-
signed to forstall student action."
The statement also presents sev-
eral alternatives to the sit-in for
those who wish to take action but
do not want to sit-in at this time.
These alternatives range from
picketing the Administration Bldg.
to a "sing-in" in the Union.,
The five resolutions passed by
GSC were:
-That the faculty' should be
encouraged to change its policy of
class ranking;
-That the Regents should con-
sider the merits of student partici-
pation and endorse open discus-
sion.at the University;
-That the sit-in ban be con-
sidered by the committee on par-
ticipation in its review of student
government - a break with the
plan announced by Hatcher Mon-
day, which established both a stu-
dent participation committee and
a separate committee to consider
the sit-in regulation;
-That a steering committee be
established to maintain and in-
