The literary college faculty in a

with class ranking, a tripartite

The major resolution to be con-

A WHITE SERVICE station operator was aquited last night
in Opelika, Ala., in the slaying of a 21-year-old civil rights
worker last January. A jury of 12 white men deliberated for
one hour and ten minutes before returning the innocent verdict
on the trial of 69-year-old Marvin Segrest. Killed in the incident
at Segrest's service station in Tuskegee, Ala., last Jan. 3 was
Samuel Younge, Jr. Segrest testified yesterday that he fired
two shots when Young advanced on him. He said he fired the
shotsto bluff Younge, who he said was yelling, cursing, and
raising a fuss. The shooting occurred after Younge refused to
use what he termed a 'segregated' washroom.
LANSING-MICHIGAN Gov. George Romney said yester-
day he has written the chairman of the National Advisory Com-
mission on Selective Service, urging a congressional review of
the national draft system. In a letter to the commission chair-
man, Burke Marshall, the Republican governor proposed a joint
House-Senate study. Romney added that Thomas B. Curtis (R-
Mo) and several other House Republicans have called for a
similar study. The governor said he is "hopeful that such efforts
can help bring about a meaningful national discussion of the
Selective Service Act before it comes up for renewal six months
from now."

Reinstates Advance
Rating Td Compete
With Harvard System
By MARCY ABRAMSON j
Harvard's preadmission classifi-
cation system has forced Yale to
reinstate a similar program. In
the latest Yale Alumni Magazine,
president Kingman Brewster Jr.
said that the Harvard policy "has
worked to our disadvantage," thus
necessitating a change in Yale
policy.
Applicants from selected schools
now receive advance rating from

Harvard. Students who are vir-
tually assured admisison often no
longer consider entering Yale or
Princeton, although they may later
be accepted by two or even all
three of the schools.
Both Yale and Princeton drop-
ped their early classification pro-
grams two years ago. Sincethe
system applied only to certain!
secondary schools, it was discon-
tinued as "unfair' and "ineffi-
cient," according to Brewster.
'Friends at Harvard'
"We wish our friends at Har-
vard had felt likewise," Brewster
wrote. Harvard refused to elimi-
nate advance rating and used the
Practice to gain an advantage over
the other schools.
According to Yale officials, the
system "grew up over the years"]
and was used principally by Har-
vard, Princeton and Yale.
Three ratings were sent out far
in advance of regular April ad-f
missions notices to. students in
certain schools. An "A" was a
near - guarantee of acceptance,I
while a "B" indicated some possi-I
bility. A "C" meant almost definite
rejection.

BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY George Brown yesterday asked the United Nations to enact
economic sanctions against rebellious Rhodesia.

Hopeful Solutions
UNITED NATIONS (m)-Britain
proposed yesterday that the UN
Security Council invoke manda-
tory economic penalties and an
arms embargo against Rhodesia
to bring down the 13-month-old
white minority regime.
In a speech to the 15-nation
council, British Foreign Secretary
George Brown offered also to ac-
cept a limited oil embargo --
one that would not involve South
Africa. He made clear that as far
as Britain was concerned, Rho-
desia should, be the sole target of
council action.
Brown expressed confidence that
the council would approve the res-
Solution, but he added that failure
rto act quickly now woulid "bring
uncalculable consequences that
would not only threaten the peace
but bring measureless misery and
ruin to the whole of Southern
Africa."
African Reply
In reply to some African na-
tions which have been calling, for
Britain to use force instead of
sanctions, he said:
"I know there are those - who
say this is insufficient and urge
the use of force. My aavernment
has frequently made plain their
position on this.
"I should only like to add that
we all know from experience that
it is easy to start to use force but
often very difficult to control or
stop it. In the mind of everyone
here, there are not only past ex-
amples but very pertinent present
ones to remind us of the truth of
that."
Only Rhodesia
He stressed that Britain was
striking only at present against
Rhodesia .and not at Portugal or
South Africa, white-ruling bowers
in Africa.
"The first step is to lay down
effectivesanctions," he said. '
"If-and it is at the moment
entirely hypothetical-any country
were to decide that it could not
conform with the council's deci-
sion, this would of course create
a new situation which in due
course would no doubt be raised.
We are proposing selective sanc-
tions against Rhodesia only."
As Brown spoke the House of'
Commons in London supported the
Labor government's appeal to.the
United Nations. At a rowdy ses-
sion, the House voted 353 to 244
against conservatives and some La.
bor defectors to back the appeal.

most part as an interest group
advising the Administration. With
no clear focal point for responsi-
bility the organization is still
trying to determine the role it
should play. In question are its
ultimate goals, the extent of its
campus political involvement, and
how much the organization should
take over from the dormitory gov-
ernments themselves and the ad-
ministration.
President Sherry Meyer, '69,
would like to see IHA setting polc-
iy and enforcing the rules govern-
ing the students in the dorms.
An attempt is now being made
at revision of the judiciary struc-
ture, women's hours, and staff
evaluations.
Among IHA's major problems
is the lack of upperclassmen in the
dorms. Since apartment permis-
sions were granted, there has been
a reorientation of IHA in the di-
rection of more thinking and pol-
icy-making than activities.
The organization has had its
problems in getting and keeping
leaders, a setback to the continutiy
of its plans.
Weaknesses
As a new organization with a
great turnover (five new board
members were added to fill vacan-
cies at the beginning of this year)
IHA has been inefficient and slow
in getting started on many of its
programs:
-Plans for an SGC candidates
forum, initiated by a motion pass-
ed several weeks before were com-
pletely forgotten until the meeting
Nov. 7.
-The judiciary review was de-
layed by other business.
-The staff evaluation is being
'handled with extra care."

that the new residents may not
develop rapport or communication
with their council.
IHA is in an ideal position to
advise and work with the admin-
istration, but it has no actual.
legislative power and no way to
ensure its advice will be heeded.
In fact, it is repsonsible to SGC
as well as the Office of Residence
Halls in. those areas in which they
have power.
. The structure itself is thus limit-
ing. IHA can work with and sup-
port individual dormitory govern-
ments in a fashion that will make
them effective contributions to the
educational environment.
Inter-House Assemblyis still ex-
periencing growing pains. This
second year will be important in
determining the direction it will
go and how effective it will be in
the University community as it
atteimpts to define its role and its
aims.

A second proposal, however,
condones administrative action in
the recent crisis, recommending
that the literary college faculty:
-"welcome the proposals of

before the Faculty Senate at its
Nov. 29 meeting;
-"impress upon the students

the administration didn't possibly
