NEW YORK (P)-The draft-

Nam-has put a crimp in company

An Associated Press survey of'

did not get all of the engineers it
wanted because of the stiff com-
petition, a greater percentage of
students continuing graduate work
and the Viet Namn war, which
barred some who graduated.
"Interviewers are handicapped
because students have been draft-
ed and the number available is
down," said Carl Dickinson, Uni-
versity of Washington associate
director of placement services. "Al-
so, draft pressure is causing many
to continue graduate work to de-
lay going into service."
Michael Doland, Seattle Univer-
sity placement director, says the
competition for students was
heavier this year because of the
draft and because of the business
growth in the Seattle area.

Advisors To
Aid Malasia
With Study
The Univer sity has agreed to
furnish "advisors'' to the govern-
ment of Malaysia to help that
country solve its population prob-
lems through a program of popu-
lation planning.
Ariffin Mairzuki of the Mala ysia
Family Planning Board is meeting
with University officials to work
out the details of the arrange-
ment. According to him, Malaysia
is the first nation to take official
action on this problem of over-
crowding.
The population growth of Ma-z
laysia, 3.2. is about double that
of the United States. Ariffin at-
tributed this growth to a rapidly
declining death rate brought
about by improved health condi-
tions and a high birth rate.

Letter on

(rive Undergraduates
Two Weeks To Ask
Withholding of Data
By MICHAEL HEFFER
The University is complying
with the Selective Service System
and forwarding to local boards
the gradedpoint and class rank
of all undergraduate male stu-
dents
Before this action is taken, how-
ever, the University, through let-
ters going into the mail today, is
informing each of these students
that this information will be with-
held from the boards if the stu-
dent requests the, University in
writing to do so.
The action comes in the wake
of an announcement by Wayne
State University that it is re-
leasing the information this year,
but not next. No indication has
been given by the University about
future policy on the matter.
The University's announcement
comes at a time when most of its
undergraduate students are on
vacation. Therefore it is sending
letters explaining the policy to
the home addresses of the stu-
dents, hoping that as many as
possible will be able to respond by
July $.
University officials said the de-
cision was only reached recently,
after a meeting with Michigan
Selective Service officials. Up to
that time, University officials had
been in the dark about what
selective service expected from
them.
There was apparently no wNritten
communication between the ad-
ministration and selective service
officials. At the meeting between
the two groups, University officials
learned the selective service au-
thorities were expecting the Uni-
versity to forward grades and class
rankings.
The administration was told
that local boards in Michigan
would be reviewing student defer-
ments at the end of July, and
decided to send the information
in by that time.
Normally selective service in-
forms the individual student that
the information is being requested,
and he asks the school to forward
it. In this case it is up to the
school. Michigan State University
has already informed its students
and is forwarding the information.
"We must do this to protect the
student's deferment," said Vice-
Prfesident for Academic Affairs
Allan F. Smith, in announcing the
'decision.
This does not represent a change
in University policy. Up to now
students have signed a form during
registration asking the University
to forward the information that

"The two greatest fears in the
district's precincts," noted Scheer,
"were peace and automation." But
he also found striking concern for
the Vietnamese people and the
problem of their freedom.
Scheer, who is also foreign af-
fairs editor for Ramparts Maga-
zine, said that he himself is hos-
tile "toward Communism as a
system of government," though he
often used the analogy of Ameri-
can intervention in Viet Nam be-
ing similar to Russian intervention
in Hungary in 1956.
He expressed no fear, however,
of having been hurt through
"guilt by association." He noted,
that among his campaign workers
were members of the Communist
party. "Anyone," said Scheer,
"could work on my campaign so
long as he believed and would
express what I was trying to get
across to the voters."
Scheer found his campaign de-
moralized by objections and criti-
cisms which included accusations
of his having "sold-out" to the
Democratic party. "Had it been
possible for me to get on the bal-

lot as an independent candidate,'
he said, "I would have."
Many opposed him by arguin
that electoral politics should floe
spontaneously from the communi
ty. Scheer countered with claim;
that his campaign had receivec
definite impetus from the commu
nity and was based in the poli-
tical climate at-Berkeley.
Scheer felt that although h(
was defeated, he had scored ai
"enormous success." He claime(
that it was "not easy to vote fo:
him" because he was more tha
just a "peace candidate." He al.
luded, for example, in his cam
paign to the problems of Negroe
by saying that "the status qu
would be more costly than i

Although Scheer lost the elec
