U. . extends
draft liabilit
through March
WASHINGTON (UP) - Still plugging holes in the draft lot-
tery system, the administration is trying to eliminate the
chance of someone escaping induction by becoiing 1-A
late in the year.
The Selective Service System announced yesterday a
three-month extension of draft liability for any 1-A man
whose draft board has reached his lottery number but who
has not been drafted by the end of the year.
The aim is to prevent the unfairness of drafting one man
according to the lottery of last December; and then passing
up another man with a lower lottery number just because
he became available along with a crowd of other low-num-
bered men after the manpower needs were filled.
That is the kind of situation - --

The carryovers will, in fact, be

the regular 1971 manpower pool
is touched. Their draft priority
will be second only to that of vol-

is drafted under extended liability
while another man in exactly sim-
ilar circumstances escapes extend-
ed liability - and military serv-
ice - because he is registered with
a different draft board which has
not reached his number.
Selective Service has placed a
ceiling of No. 195 nationwide this
year, meaning the more than 4,-
000 local boards may not call men
with higher numbers. But below
that ceiling the boards have reach-
ed widely varying upper numb-
Some have not yet called num-
bers higher than 170, a draft
spokesman said. A few are even
lower. .
Thus, a number such as 180
could mean extended liability for a
man whose draft b o a r d has
reached 180, but not for a man
whose board only reached 179.
The new regulations, contained
in an executive order signed 1 a s t
Saturday by President Nixon, also
clarified the induction of men
who have reached age 26.'
They may be inducted, the or-
der said, only if their draft lia-
bility extends to age 35. and if the
induction order is issued before
the 26th birthday.

BEDL.WRO start new sit-in;
seek church funds for poor


Representatives of two 1 o c a 1'
groups who are seeking "money
for the 'county's poor from local
churches, began a sit-in yesterday
at the First Presbyterian Church.

ment League (BEDL) and the

A delegation of five people began
a sit-in in the second floor foyer
yesterday afternoon until the
church's attorney read a state-
ment asserting the demonstrators
were in violation of a court in-
junction forbidding the disruption
of church services or business.
The group left the main office
at its 5 p.m. closing time, but
remained in the church,tclaiming
that mere occupation didn't con-
stitute disruption.
Later, the group moved to the
youth center in the church's base-
ment. At 10:30 last night the

New student aid

Economists are not the only ones con-
cerned with the impact of the United Auto
Workers strike this fall. Ngw, the Office
of Financial Aids is exploring the effects
the strike may have on the financial aid
requirements of University students.
"If prolonged, the strike may add to the
many factors leading to greater financial
need among students," said Ronald M.
Brown, director of the financial aids of-
"We have had a few students who have
come in and asked for an increase in aid

strike. "We have been meeting frequently
to discuss the possible effects of the
strike," he explained. "If we see the prob-
lem growing, we will take steps to secure
additional aid for students who require
In general, the office applies the Col-
lege Scholastic Services Need Analysis

dent's financial needs.

The office has had applications for aid
from approximately 5,000 students for this
year, Brown reported. "I think we have
done the best we could, but we have not
done as well as we would like," he added.
"So far," Brown continued, "we have
been able to meet the needs of most of
the applicants who, in our judgment, re-
quire financial assistance. However, there
are several hundred students who have
received some aid but who still have unmet
financial need."
A substantial amount of money remains,
Brown said, which is administered outside

S Although they say they won't
disrupt the church, group minm-
bers declare they will stay in the
church until either their demands
are met or they are forced out by
police action. Bryant said he hopes
that fear of the adverse publicity !
of forcible ejection of the group
by police may influence the
church to agree to the dlemands.
Seventeen local churches form-
ed a coalition last week with the
aim of distributing aid to the
county's poor, apparently in re-
sponse to BEDL-WRO demonstra-
tions. The organization-the In-
terfaith Coalition of Congregations
