Student opposition to the con-
struction plans had been expressed
earlier at a Nov. 10 meeting, and
341 signatures were collected on a
petition opposing the plans. About
60 per cent of the 600 Lloyd resi-

most 99 per cent of them voting
against the kitchen plan.k
The proposed plan recommends

barred pending
draft decision.
WASHINGTON (R) - Supreme Court Justice William
Douglas yesterday ordered a halt to all draft inductions in
the Los Angeles area until a federal district court rules on an
alleged loophole in the 1971 Selective Service Act.
Douglas granted an application filed by the American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in behalf of men facing induc-
tion before the end of the year. The suit charges that a pro-
vision in the draft law bars all inductions until 90 days after
the law takes effect unless the President or the Senate de-
clare a state of war or national emergency.
Attorney for the draftees argue that the provision should
have barred all inductions before Dec. 28.
Selective Service spokesmen said they would not seek
review by the full Supreme Court -
of Douglas' induction stay order;
but a spokesman said s'milar O jL
"loophole" challenges in various H ouse
federal courts could eventually
throw the whole case into the Su-
preme Court.

at a press conference in Boston yesterday as an unidentified aide studies the audience. Jenness, 30,
a graduate of Antioch College, said she plans to file to run for the presidency next year in 33 states.

A spokesman said Selective Ser-
vice did not believe the 1948 delay

such a decision could affect tens

Several federal judges have al-

law. Others may now find them-

prove illegal.

and former University faculty
member, has been cited for con-

Judiciary Committee for his failure

The censure, the Detroit Free
Press reported yesterday, could
result in prosecution by the Jus-

would be five years.
