down; union strike

WASHINGTON (/) - Lottery number 195 may prove to be
the upper limit in the 1971 draft just as it was in 1970, des-
pite expected reductions in draft calls.
Selective Service Director Curtis W. Tarr said yesterday
that while fewer might be called, the 1971 draft pool, consist-
ing of men just turned 19, would be smaller than the 1970
pool. As the first pool under the lottery system, the 1970 pool
included men from 19 to 26.
Men in the 1971 pool were assigned their lottery numbers
- a different set from those used in 1970 - in a double draw-
ing last July that matched their birthdays with numbers from
one to 365.
Shortly after Tarr spoke, the Defense Department an-

asks 'Cuts
In budget*
LANSING (P) - To meet t h e
state's money pinch, Gov. William
Milliken has outlined an addi-
tional $110 million in revenua in-
creases and spending cuts, includ-
ing a $15 million reduction in local
school aid.
According to a state official, the
proposed cuts will not appreciably
affect the University's state fund-
ing for this fiscal year.
Fidele Fauri, University vice
president for state relations and
planning, said yesterday, "We're
hopeful that the University will
not be included in spending re-
ductions. This institution couldn't
absorb another cut without laying
people off."
If Milliken's recommendations
are approved, a minor building
project at the University's Fl in t
campus will be deferred for a
possible cutback.
Milliken's proposals, following
previous recommendations 1 a s t
November to save $62 million, are
designed to close the $108 million
gap between revenues and ex-
penditures by July 1.
The difference between the
$110 million in money-saving pro-
posals and the $108 million rev-
enue gap gives the Legislature "$2
million to money around with,"
Milliken's budget director, Glenn
*Allen, said, today.
The recommendations, in a let-
ter to members of the Legisuature,
-Cut school aid by two per'cent
In each district for a total of $15
million. Milliken said it would be
left for each school district to de-
cide where to best apply the reduc-
-Reduce the so-called "grand-
father clause" in the school aid
bill by $12 million. This clause
guarantees each district aid at a
previous level;
-Reduce a portion of the re-

public school retirement system to
save $6 million;
--Cut capital outlay by $5 mil-
lion; and

ments to the December, 1970, lev-
els, saving $2 million.

partment would request in 1971'
but he cited published reports that
Secretary of Defense Melvin R.
Laird estimated the total would
fall between 80,000 and 12.000.
Tarr's guess that local boards
could meet the 1971 requirements
by inducting men with numbers
up to 195 c o ulI d, therefore, be
thrown off by changes in Penta-
gon needs or other factors, such
as the enlistment rate.
Tarr discussed the 1971 outlook
in a conversation following a news
conference in which he announced
administration plans to seek an1
end to college student deferments
this year.
Asserting that the schools are
not legally required to provide the
information, Tarr said it is the
responsibility of the draft regis-
trant to provide information re-
lating to his classification.
The administration also wants
to start a uniform national call,
allowing the same lottery number
to be called everywhere, instead of
the present system of geographi-
cal quotas.
Both moves require congres-
sional approval. Attempts to ob-
tain this last year were postponed
by the chairmen of the House and
Senate Armed Services Commit-
tee who preferred, Tarrtsaid, to
consider the proposals this year

list, up to the number 195 ceiling
set by the national headquarters.
Tarr estimated the highest num-
ber called by most boards in 1970
averaged about 190.

City Council considers radical

A strike by University service
a n d maintenance employes
late this week was considered <
increasingly likely yesterday
as negotiations for a new con-
tract between Local 1583 of
the American Federation, of
State, County, and Municipal
Employes (AFSCME) and the
University w e r e reportedly
bogging down.
A member of the union nego-
tiating team said the University
"did not seem to be attempting
to reach agreement before Thurs-
day," the contract deadline, and
that a strike seemed "inevitable."
James Thiry, manager of em-
ploye and union relations, would
not comment on the possibility
Cof a strike.
However, he and Charles Mc-
Cracken, president of the union.
described negotiations towards a
contract to replace the one which
will expire at midnight Thursday
as "slow."
A University spokesman said
yesterday it was a "reasonable
speculation" that the University
would seek an injunction against SUR(
the union if it went on strike.
When AFSCME workers at East-
ern Michigan University went on 4
strike in September, the university S
sought an injunction against em-
ployes under state laws that for-
bid public employes to strike.

in some doubt" because in recent

Due to the confusion on the
