CAN THO, South Viet Nam (P)-Premier Nguyen Cao Ky
said early today his military regime intends to stay in power
"at least for another year."
Ky also told a news conference that if the civilian government
that will eventually emerge from general elections is neutralist
or Communist "I and my friends will fight it."
Ky said the elections, expected to be held some time between
Sept. 15 and Oct. 1, will elect only an assembly charged with
drafting the nation's constitution.
Once the constitution has been drafted, Ky said, another
vote will be held to elect a legislative assembly which, in turn,
will appoint a civilian government.
THE SELECTIVE SERVICE SYSTEM has changed its mind
and announced yesterday that if a student taking the forth-
coming draft deferment exam doesn't want to be-fingerprinted
he won't be.
In response to protests over the fingerprint .requirement laid
down earlier, the system said other positive identification will be
accepted. No examples were provided, a spokesman saying this
will be decided by Science Research Associates which will
administer the exams.
SELECTIVE SERVICE OFFICIALS in Washington have
clarified the criteria by which graduate students may continue
their 2-S student deferments.
"If the student has been accepted for admission for a degree
by a graduate or professional school to the first class commencing
after the date he completed requirements for admission; and if
the school has certified that he is satisfactorily pursuing a full-
time course of instruction leading to the degree; and if in his
last full-time academic year prior to entrance in the graduate
school he has achieved a scholastic standing on that year's work
within the upper one-quarter of the male students in his class
or has attained a score of 80 or more on the Selective Service
qualifying test, the student will be eligible for continued defer-
ment," the statement by Lt. Elven Higdon of the national Selec-
tive Service office in Washington said.
The requirement that a student have attained a top-quarter
ranking based on his senior year of work or have passed the
Selective Service test with a score of at least 80 applies not only
to students entering graduate studies this fall but also to current
graduate students who are candidates for a master's or doctoral
degree.
TEACHING FELLOWS will meet Tuesday night to formulate
plans for an eventual link with the American Federation of
College Teachers. The group is seeking higher salaries and better
working conditions here. The teaching fellows have met with
University administrators several times but have reported little
progress toward fulfillment of their demands.

THE CARPENTERS AND BRICKLAYERS strike which has
crippled $67 million in University projects and other construction
jobs throughout Michigan continues with little sign of an
imminent break. The strikes are entering their fifth day.
PROF. ALMANDO VEZZANI of the University's School of
Education and a widely recognized authority on vocational
education, died Thursday at the age of 60. He had bren a
member of the University faculty for 22 years.
STANLEY THAYER, former Michigan state senator from
Ann Arbor and Repubiican Senate Majority Leader, has announc-
ed his candidacy for the Washtenaw County Circuit Judge
position. His move ended speculation that he might oppose Rep.
Weston Vivian (D-Ann Arbor) in November's election for the
House of Representatives in Washington.

The Office of Academic Affairs
announced yesterday the appoint-
ment of a 15-member faculty
steering committee to work with
the OAA in coordinating Univer-
sity programs on the "development
of academic opportunities"-con-
centrating on programs which
bring Negroes in contact with the
. University.
The committee has been divided
into three subcommittees, each of
which will study and help plan
three University programs. The
first, the Opportunity Awards
Program, two years old, brings to
the University students who are
economically unable to otherwise
attend the University without aid,
and who "in many instances have
not had the cultural exposure" of
most students.
From 65 to 75 students, mostly
Negroes, are recruited each year.I
The second program, the Inter-
institutional Exchange with Tus-
kegee Institute, in operation since
1963, arranges for exchanges of
faculty and students between the
two institutions.
The third program concerns
"the recruitment of Negro facultyl
and staff members." Vice-Presi-j
dent for Academic Affairs Allan
F. Smith has asked the committee
to consider the University's posi-
tion relating to Negro faculty
members.
The committee will work to set
up ways to bring potential Negro
faculty members to the attention
of departments with openings.
They will also give assistance with
housing problems and questions of'
discrimination.
Associate Dean Norman R. Scott
of the engineering school has
been named chairman of the com-
hittee. He says the committee was
formed because the OAA wanted
to have a faculty group coordinate
thlese prgrams11!. Scott said the
crt ion of suchI a rotp oes not
imply any changes or expansion
is being considered, but such ac-,
tion might be taken.
He noted that, for example, the:
Opportunity Awards program is in:
operation only in the literary col-
lege and the engineering school,
and the faculty committee, as the
central coordinating group, could1
act to expand its scope,.
The chairmen of the three sub-
committees are William Schlatter,
assistant to Smith, Prof. Ralph
Gibson of the psychology depart-
ment, and Robert Marion, admis-
sions counselor.
Other committee members in-
clude Profs. Donald Brown and
Edgar Epps of the psychology de-
partment, Leonard Greenbaum
and Rudolf Schmerl of the Eng-I
lish department, Melvyn Semmel
of the education school and
Assistant Dean Hayden Carruth{
of the literary college.

For, Actions.
Homosexual Behavior,
Sexual Promiscuity
Termed Widespread
By BETSY TURNER
The California State Senate
Committee on Un-American Acti-
vities yesterday released a -de-
tailed report on student activity
at the Berkeley campus of the
University of California: It de-
scribed the campus as "seething
with Communist and homosexual
activity," and blamed University
President Clark Kerr for this.
Thedcommitteecharged that
Communist-oriented students and
non - students have made the
Berkeley campus the nationwide
center for the anti-Viet Nam war
movement, under Kerr's adminis-
tration. Sexuality and sexual pro-
miscuity, the senators suggested
are rampant.
Kerr termed the report distort-
ed and inaccurate, claiming it con-
tained half-truths and situations
taken out of context. He repeated
his challenge that the report be
presented outside the protection
of legislative immunity. He also
renewed his offer to appear before
the committee at an open hear-
ing.

Residence Hall Business Mana-
ger Leonard A. Schaadt said that
the elimination of Sunday night
meals and a reduction in employs
made possible by students busing
their own dishes should eliminate
the need for another dorm fee
hike.
He said the cut in services to
keep rates at the samA leve hasj
been made n(cessary in one in-
stance by the drastic rise in food
prices over the past six monthsI
If the prices continue rising at

dece hall budget x would have to
accommodate a five to seven per
cent increase for food.
Pay increases for dorinitory em-
ployes is another factor figuring
in the service cut back. Schaadt
insisted that "no one knows" at
this time how much of a raise
will have to be accounted for or
how it xvill affect the budgeting
of residence hall funds.
If food and labor costs increase
too drastically to be handled by
available funds, the University has
the option of deferring until the
following year five per cent of
the debt-servicing payment it
makes annually. Dormitories are
operated on a self-liquidating
basis, financed by bonds which!
are paid back from the excesses
in fees after the deduction of
operating expenses.
Though Schaadt says the Uni-;
versity hopes not to use the de-
ferment next year, it could be
used and the five per cent sum
paid back the following year with-j
out too much strain being placed
on the residence hall budget.

These were only some of the
sights that opened the eyes of
about 100 Ann Arbor citizens as
they toured several houses in their
city's slums yesterday afternoon.
The local chapter of the Con-
gress of Racial Equality (CORE)
sponsored the "Tour For Better
Housing," its second, in an
attempt to bring Ann Arbor's sub-
standard housing and building
code violations before the public
eye.
Franklin Ferguson, chairman of
CORE's Housing Committee, spoke
to the citizen group gathered at
the Ann Arbor Community Cen-
ter and said that the purpose of
the tour was to bring into focus
two things.
First, he said, CORE wants to
bring to the public's attention the
lack of code enforcements in the
city.
Secondly, there is a definite
need for Ann Arbor to set up a

cerned about Negro removal that
it must overlook building code
violations?"
