SGC votes funds for
student employe unionK ey
In an attempt to improve
working conditions of student
employes, Student Govern-
ment Council last night voted
to begin organizing a union of
temporary student, workers.
Acting on a resolution presented
by member-at-large Joel Silver-
stein, Council allocated $443.50 for
..........efort of the SGCOr
- f ganizing Committee for a Tempo-
rary Employes Association.
Xx. ..University employes classified as
"temporary" include students em-
ployed in the libraries, dorm food
lines, and the Union and L'eague
h {:dining rooms.
"Temporary employes receive no
4 k ' ' sick pay, no vacation pay, no
health benefits and have poor job
security," said Silverstein. "Some
type of student workers' union has
been needed for a long time."
The. association, which the SGC
Comitehpst establish can-
.i~ not be officially called a "union"
'' 4because it would not immediately
meet state labor requirements,
Silverstein said.
The SGC committee contains
two SGC members-Silverstein and
Doug Richardson - and about 10
outside students. It will meet today
to discuss recruitment procedures.
The purpose of the SGC com-
mittee is to establish the tempo-
rary employes' association. After
the first organizational meeting of
the association, it will become a
student organization and lose its
status as an SGC committee.
Approval of funding for the com-
mittee came on a six to one vote
which followed a lengthy debate.

measures alter draft


Daily News Analysis
Nightmares began again last month for thousands of
college age men as President Nixon signed into law the
Military Selective Service Act, marking an end to a three
month draft holiday and extending the induction process
until June 30, 1973.
The new law reinstates the old concept of the draft, but
includes several measures that in time may alter the admin-
istration and aims of the Selective Service System and the
eligibility of young men within the system.
These measures include an option for Nixon to end the
deferments of this year's freshman class, a uniform national
lottery ceiling, a military pay raise, an extension'of the pro-
cedural rights of draftees before their local boards, and a
limitation of the number of men that can be inducted in the
next two years.
White House officials say the bill's provision that will
allow Nixon to drop deferments for students who began full-
time college schedules after July 1, 1971, is "expected to be
adopted in the very near fu-
The end of the deferments
will directly affect the 20 per
cent of the nation's college
freshmen who are already 19
years old, and the other 80 per
cent of male freshmen who
will receive their lottery num-
bers in the first quarter of F r ". ::,<
1972. As they reach their nine-
teenth birthday, they will be
thrown into the eligibility pool
by acquiring a 1-A status.
"Allowing the draft of col-
lege students eliminates a<>
major inequity in the system,"
Selective Service Director Cur-
tis Tarr said yesterday in a
telephone interview. "It will
make the system more clear- Tarr
en ,cut, for there will be no waiting around to be called"
nt * The provision will also lessen the burden on colleges that
n- have had to deal with students more concerned with a de-
ferment than an education," Tarr added.
But few freshmen share Tarr's enthusiasm over the new
"The measure may be equitable," says Bob Heinrich, '75,
"but it strikes too close to home for me to be pleased by it.
Besides," he continues, "anything concerning the draft, ex-
cepting its abolition, is unpleasant news."
Another important section of the law calls for a uniform
national lottery number ceiling, which last week Tarr set at
In the past years local and state boards have been granted
leeway in choosing their own ceiling numbers in relation to
un- quotas they were expected to fill. This year, however, they
the are required by law not to exceed Tarr's figure of 125.
ups, Tarr's decision virtually assures that I-A registrants with
Hu- numbers exceeding 125 will not be drafted this year, but, on
dent the other hand, it guarantees an induction notice in the near
wend future for all I-A or I-AO registrants holding numbers below
been The ceiling is especially significant to those students hold-
-to- ing II-S deferments with numbers exceeding 125. By declar-
City ing to their local boards an intent to drop their deferments
will on or before December 31, 1971, they will be eligible, but not
such chosen, in this year's draft and therefore will not be con-
sidered in the next years' calls.

Council approves new site for
housing Community Coalition

City Council in a special meet-
ing last night approved a plan
that will provide a new build-
ing for the Community Coalition
representing Ozone House, Free
Medical Clinic, Drug Help and a
federally-funded youth activi-
ties program.
The plan, once final details
are worked out, will allow the
groups to move from their pres-
ent site at 301 Liberty St., to the
larger Cadillac Garage Property
on Washington St. sometime
next month.
Ozone house serves as a drop-

in center for runaways and
"street people," Drug Help as a
drug crisis and education cen-
ter, and the Free Medical Clinic
as a place for indigent people to
receive medical care.
Coalition members had re-
quested the new site contending
that the present location is in-
adequate. Matt Lampe of the
coalition added that s e r v i c e s
could be greatly expanded in the
Washington St. Bldg., saying
"we probably will not see this
chance again."
"The medical clinic, for ex-
ample, is serving about 150 peo-

ple a week," Lampe said, adding
that the four rooms provided in
the Liberty St. building were far
too small for the program. He
said the clinic will add dental
care when it moves to the new
Support for the project came
from unexpected quarters when
Bill Bott, president of the Ann
Arbor Chamber of Commerce,
expressed approval of the plan
for both himself and the State

WASHINGTON 0P)--Herschel Friday, a Little
Rock, Ark. attorney and Judge Mildred Lillie of
Los Angeles are the leading prospects for two
Supreme Court vacancies, a Senate source re-
ported yesterday.
Friday and Lillie were on a listnof six possible
nominees, revealed Wednesday, whose qualifica-
tions are being checked by the American Bar
Association's (ABA) committee on the federal

gate more than the six whose names have been
mentioned and still meet Nixon's deadline of next
week, a high administration official suggested the

"There's enough time between
now and March 7 to do some sur-
prising things in New Hamp-
shire," Reigle said, calling for
campaign workers and financial
contributions. "And the potential
,exists to defeat Nixon outright
in Massachusetts," he added.
"If we do that, it would drive
Nixon out of the race. The im-
mediate impact of it would dam-
age his ability to function in the
political arena and as chief ex-
ecutive at the same time," he
