The crowd, according to WO-
N.AAC, will assemble at the west
steps of the Capitol for a three
hour rally, including speeches by
tennis champion Billie Jean King,
National Welfare Rights Organiza-
tion leader Beulaii Sanders, and
Shirley Wheeler, a Florida wo-
man who has been convicted of
having an illegal abortion.
The scheduled speakers will lead
the marchers, including delega-
tions from the Black Task Force,
Third World Women, High School
Women, Campus Women, Catho-
lies for Abortion Law Repeal,
Church Women for Legal Abor-
tion, Gay Women, Women of the
Medical Professions and other
designated contingents.
Supervising the marchers will
be a crew of over 200 women,
F medical, legal and general mar-
shals, who have participated in
special training sessions. Child
care facilities and housing ar-
rangements for marchers are be-
ing provided by WONAAC.
Counter - demonstrations by
opponents of abortion are being
organized here and in New York.
Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Ohio.
A group called Americans for Life
has arranged the protest here.
At the same time a second WO-
NAAC march and rally is sched-
uled today in San Francisco, also
calling for "repeal of anti-abortion
laws, an end to forced steriliza-
tion and repeal of restrictive con-
traceptive laws."

He added that "nothing major
will be done immediately."
Student expectations with re-
gard to the counseling system dif-
fer widely. Some students view
counselors simply as card-signers!
--a necessary inconvenience inj
the registration process. Others
expect intensive, personal guid-
ance in designing their programs1
while at the University.;
Between these two extremes are
those who want varying amounts
of technical information with re-

and options.
Rhodes said he would leave
Morris essentially free to develop
his own program for improving
the counseling situation.
"We will have formal, weekly
meetings." said Rhodes. "But my
whole style of running LSA is to

and then trust them to get on with;
I the job."
Rhodes is still looking for some-
one to fill the new associate dean-{
ship for curriculum development.
"I'm looking for someone with
the right combination of talents
to convert my somewhat visionarv
ideals of what education should,1
be into concrete programs,"
Rhodes said.
These "visionary ideals" basic-
ally involve his belief that cur- 1
r iculum should be much more
flexible than it is at present, and
allow those students to complete
a degree on their own time sched-
ule without the constraints of the ;
"four-year lockstep."
