"About one out of every four
qualified young men of military
age will be needed for active or
reserve duty," he said.
"Most will be needed for one
enlistment only, but about 25
percent of those who enter will
be needed for additional terms
of service."
The Pentagon estimates it
will be able to draw on a po-
tential enlistment pool of four
million men each year between
the ages of 18 and 22.
Kelley said reductions in the
size of the armed forces from
a Vietnam war peak of 3.5 mil-
lion in 1968 will be completed
by June, when they are sched-
uled to shrink to just under 2.5
The administration's goal is
to end draft calls by July 1,
1973, by increasing the num-
ber of voluntary enlistments.
Kelley said this can be
achieved if military pay is suf-
ficient enough "to bear a rea-
sonable relationship to civilian
pay," servicemen are "treated
with respect," decent housing
and quality schools are provid-
ed, and military life becomes
"reasonably satisfying a n d
At the same time he said the
armed forces will have to weed
out those "who are incompe-
tent, lazy or disloyal."
"Those people, even though
they comprise a very small per
cent of the total, take a dispro-
portionate amount of time to
supervise and they cause more
than their share of the trou-
ble that has erupted in recent
years," he said.

in an arbitrary manner -- some-
thing specifically forbidden in a
memo of "understanding" in the

however, maintains that such ac-
tions are not "harassment."
Further, the union objects to
the position the University has
taken in regard, to break time.
The University, union officials
claim, has asserted it has the
right to tell employes where they
can and cannot go on their break
time, on the grounds that break
locations might interfere with the
functioning of the University.
Union officials, however, feel
that some such restrictions are
clearly "capricious."

After the defeat of the Ruckna-'

Schuman, designing his proposal
as a compromise between RPC's
report and the Rucknagel motion,
answered that the phrase was to
provide "flexibility" to those who
would have to interpret it.

the establishment of a "Review

"exceptional" requests for classi-
