Although from 16,000 to 25,000
graduate students in the nation
have received draft induction no-
tices, the University's graduate
division has not been hit hard-
The biggest losses hive been in
engineering, where the lure of
draft-deferred positions in indus-
try is drawing many students
away from graduate studies in
addition to those who are actually
drafted. As a result, incoming en-
rollment in graduate engineering
is down approximately 20 per cent
for the fall.
But in the many schools - es-
pecially law and business admin-
istration - there are fears that
the draft will finally reach large
ntmbers of graduate students this


to depopulate


graduate school

However, few administrators be-
lieve that any significant number
of draft-eligible graduate students
will be drafted, although official
fall enrollment predictions h a v e
not been made yet.
Byron Groesbeck, associate dedn
of the graduate school, explains
that enrollment dropped only 26
students more than usual during
the winter term although a drop
of 161 more than average had
been predicted.
Winter enrollment was expected
to drop to 8000 from 8337 in the
fall, but the actual decrease was
only 176-mostly draft casualties.
"There was no real decrease in
the winter term,". Groesbeck says,
"and there are no signs that there
will be an unexpected decrease in
enrollment in the fall term."
The July draft call is 22,300-

some 3600 below the June call.
Groesbeck believes that the de-
cline in the draft will relieve pres-
sure on the graduate school, and
that there is now no indication
that draft calls will increase in
Veterans are starting to re-ap-
ply in greater numbers than in the
past, which Groesbeck considers a
healthy sign, although there has
been. no significant rise in their
Groesbeck admits that some ad-
ditional qualified applicants are
being admitted for the fall to pre-
vent any under-enrollment.
He adds that without the draft
pressure the graduate schools
would have been' forced to raise
selection standards this year to
compensate for increased num-
bers of eligible students. B u t

standards have stayed the same
because of the draft and the num-
ber of students who simply do not
enter graduate school due to draft
But other administrators d i s-
agree with Groesbeck. Assistant
Dean Matthew McCauley of t h e
Law School believes the school
will be hit hard in the fall, b u t
does not yet have any enrollment
figures to indicate this.J
"We may lost five or 50," he
says. "It's anyone's guess."
The Law School has taken a
survey of' first and second year
students to determine how many
thought the draft would hit them
over the summer.
And 25 per cent of the students
wrote they thought they would not
be coming back in the fall, ,ex-
plains Dean Roy Proffitt.

However, although two-thirds of
the students returned the survey,
the results are inconclusive, he
says, because many men do not
actually know whether they will
return to school. "Some men just
thought their number was up,"
Proffitt says.
Last year the school was affect-
ed by the draft at the beginning
of the term, but for the moment
enrollment has not decreased.
Summer enrollment is up from 210
to 245. Proffitt explains that some
of the law students think that
their draft boards will leave them
alone if they maintain their status
in school.
Still. Proffitt says, "No enroll-
ment has gone by that a student
does not write or call at the last
minute to say he won't be back.

We will not know how many re-
ceived their draft induction not-
ices until they don't show up."
There is also the fear in busi-
ness administration that the
school will not know until the fall
how many students have b e e n
"Our experience has been that
the men weren't notified until
July or August," says L. Lynn-
wood Aris, director of admissions
and assistant to the dean of the
school. "The future looks bright
now, but the draft could turn on
In engineering,. more and more
students are dropping out f o r
draft-deferred jobs.
"Almost every boy with a bach-
elor of science can get a protect-
ed job in industry, so why should

they go to graduate school?" ex-
plains Dean Gordon Van Wylen of
the engineering college.
Under present federal law, only
medical and third-year students
are deferred.
Van Wyler also says engineering
is hurt because the school is es-
sentially all male on the grad-
uate level and cannot increase the
number of women enrolled.
However, Groesbeck says that
this replacement is not happen-
ing even in schools which have a
large number of female graduate
"The statistics say that women
have a better chance to get into
graduate schools now, but they are
not taking advantage of the situa-
tion," Groesbeck says.

Mayor Robert Harris an-
nounced the formation of a
two-man committee to inves-
tigate complaints of citizens
against police at last night's
City Council meeting.
The two members-still to be
named-will represent the Ann
Arbor Police Department and the
Human Relations Commission.
*Both will have full authority to
examine police records.
The mayor also denied reports
of a split between him and Police
Chief Walter Krasny over the use
of police on South University
Thursday night.
When he created the investi-
gating committee, Harris said po-
lice are "under the law like every-
one else and if policemen com-
mitted crimes, they are subject to
criminal indictment like everyone
Harris maintained Ann Arbor is
"not a police state, although som'e
practices need improvement." The
niayor indicated, however, that
during the clashes on South Uni-
versity last week, many officers
"kept their heads." He specifically
expressed his "personal thanks
and gratitude to Chief Krasny."

audience time after thesregular
meeting several students and

was an irrational reaction to the

"Drops controversial
discipline provis1in
Senate Assembly yesterday approved the current draft
of proposed Regents bylaws on the role of students in de-
cision-making after deleting two controversial sections and
making other smaller changes.
In a key move, Assembly deleted Section 7.07 (2), which
would give professional schools the power to discipline stu-
dents on the basis of non-academic standards relating to
licensing requirements. Students involved in drafting the
bylaws, as well as members of Student Government Council,
had'expressed strong opposition to the provision..
Assembly also narrowly voted to delete a provision which
would place two non-voting student members on the board
of Regents and give them dull>- -'--'

Charleston protest continues
A demonstrator argues with police officers after being arrested for participating in a march through
downtown Charleston, S.C. The demonstration was staged in support of striking hospital workers at
Charleston County hospital and the Medical College of South Carolina. About 40 demonstrators
were arrested. (See related story, Page 3.)

Acting Assembly Chairman Prof.
Robert Knauss,. a key participant
in the deliberations which pro-
duced' the bylaw draft, said the
bylaws would be transmitted in-
tact to the Regents along with
the ammendments suggested by
the Assembly.
SGC is also expected to report
to the Regents on the bylaw pro-
posal, but it is still unclear
whether Council will also approve
the entire draft and .then state
reservations. Instead, SGC could
present an amended version of
the bylaws to the Regents.
Some observers at yesterday's
Assembly meeting said they be-
lieved the faculty action to delete
the section on discipline in pro-
fessional schools would be a sg
si-nificant factor in convincing SGC
to take predominantly' favorable
action on the draft.',

objections to a number of other
passages inhthe bylaw draft, in-
cluding the composition and

to the policy board of the Office
of Student Affairs.

A verdict of not guilty was returned by a six-man jury
yesterday in the second trial stemming from the arrests
made on South University last Tuesday night.
Linda J. Storr, 18, of 812 E. Kingsley, was acquitted of
a charge of "unlawfully making a disturbance or contention
in a public place," a misdemeanor -punishable by $100 and/or
90 days in jail. The jury returned the verdict after nearty
two hours of deliberation.

In factions
CHICAGO (WP) - Students for a
Democratic Society ended a. cha-
otic five-day convention yesterday
with two different groups of of-
ficers -- each of them claiming to
be "the real SDS."
A so-called regular faction, the
Revolutionary Youth Movement
which include most of the former
officers, elected Mark Rudd, 22,
of New York City, as national
'secretary to succeed Michael
Rudd was one of the leaders of
the Columbia University takeover
last year.
Meanwhile, the rival pro-Peking
Progressive Labor' party named
John Pennington of Boston, a
Harvard alumnus, as its national
The convention began last Wed-
nesday in the Coliseum on the
city's South Side, but Klonsky led
his faction out of the hall Satur-
day to a West Side church for a
rump convention session.
The split apparently centered
on the RYM's Insistence on an
alliance with black nationalists
and its defense of North Viet-
nam's Ho Chi Minh.
The PLP criticized the black
nationalists for lacking class con-
sciousness, preferred an' alliance
with the working class rather than
strictly with students, and called
'Ho a "bourgeois revisionist."
Before walking out of the Coli-
seum, Klonsky's group 'attempted
to expel the Progressive Labor
faction from the organization and
claimed they were "objective rac-
ist, anti-communist and reaction-

Feldkamp ,.censured

The student affairs policy board last night
upheld a recommendation of the Student Ad-
visory Committee on Housing and censured
housing director John Feldkamp for failing to
endorse the SACH recommendation.
SACH had recommended no increase' in the
monthly rent of married students. But Feld-
kamp, in a letter to Acting Vice President for
Student Affairs Barbara Newell, voiced strong
opposition to SACH's findings and urged the
policy board to support his recommendation for

disagreement and in the. future such business
might be conducted in secret.
The $5 raised asked by Feldkamp would
have been used for the residence halls reserve,
the profit made by the University from dorm
fees. Last year the reserve was $433,000; this
year $600,000 is expected.
The housing office has designated $200,000
for dorm renovation, and another $500,000 for
