Dissatisfied over
hiring, aceess to
A group of teaching fellows
in the psychological founda-
tions department of the
education school have express-
ed dissatisfaction with t h e i r
treatment in that school.
┬žome of the complaints have
arisen out of their hiring process.
Roddy Wares, one of the teaching
fellows, said she was notified she
would be hired for this semester
only five days before the semester

began in September.
In response to the complaint.
Assistant Dean Lowell Beach of
the education school said yester-
day that the applicants were noti-
fied as early as possible. He said
the department was still receiving
applications for positions late in
August and that everyone's ap-
plication had to be accommodated.
Wares also said that she was
hired for only one semester. This
differs substantially from other
schools in the University where
teaching fellows are hired for aI
full year, she explained.j
Beach said the reason that the
teaching fellows were hired only
for the fall term was because the
program was just getting under-
way. He told the students that -DailyJim Judkis

The prestigious Carnegie
Commission on Higher Educa-
tion has recommended wide-
spread reforms in the present
university degree structure,
urging that undergraduate
education be cut to three years
and that opportunities for
continuing education be ex-
In a report issued Monday the
commission also suggests reduc-
ing both the large number of de-
grees available and the emphasis
on certifying ability through for-
mal education.
The reforms, the report said,
would give students greater flex-
ibility in their college careers and
would better utilize the limited re-
sources available to schools which
are facing financial difficulties
The 55-page document says that
improved schools and a higher de-
gree of education among parents
have produced a generation of
better-educated students for whom
the first year of college could be
eliminated "without sacrificing
educational quality."
The commission also says an
additional year could be dropped
from Ph.D. and M.D. programs.
The report recommends at the
same time that students be allow-
ed to defer entering college after:
high school and that they be able
to interrupt their college studies
for a few years of work or service
to the community.
In addition, the report urges
that continuing educational pro-
grams be expanded and be made
available to people, especially wo-,
men and the elderly.
"Education should become more
a part of all of life and less all of
a part of life," the commission
says. "We need more paths and

Deferments may
be dropped until
Dec. 31 cutoff
Selective Service System s a i d
yesterday a man in this year's
draft pool may drop his defer-
ment anytime up to midnight
Dec. 31 and still be considered
1-A for all of 1970.
He just has to make sure his
application to his draft board Is
postmarked before that deadline.
Thus, a deferred man holding a
high number from the draft lot-
tery of last December can wait
until he is sure his number is
really safe-even after his draft
board has held its last meeting of
the year-and then place himself
in the 1970 draft pool.
Under the lottery plan, men who
are exposed to the draft in 1-A
classification and whose lottery
numbers are not reached by the
end of that year step into a lower-
risk category in the following year
when a new group becomes the
prime target of the draft.
Draft Director Curtis W. Tarr
had announced in October that
men holding certain deferments-
specifically student, occupational,
agriculture, fatherhood, and hard-
ship-could drop them voluntarily
even though the conditions jpsti-
fying deferment continued to exist.
But that order left unclear just
how long a man could wait to drop
his deferment and still be in time
for draft exposure in 1970. It was
not clear whether his application
would be effective if it missed the
last local board monthly meeting.
Yesterday's order set a uniform
deadline, regardless of local board
meeting dates.
The brief exposure would offi-
cially serve as his year of "prime"~
exposure to the draft and in his
new 1-A status he would-slip into
a less vulnerable category on Jan.
1, 1971.
However, only high school and
college student, occupational, ag-
riculture, fatherhood and hard-
ship deferments may be dropped
voluntarily while their justifying
conditions still exist.
And only men who received lot-
tery numbers last December can
take advantage of the opportunity
in 1970; men whose lottery num-
bers were drawn last July don't
face their prime exposure to the
draft until 1971.

day. Below, Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird (left) and Adm. Thomas A. Moorer discuss the com-

Laird warns Communists on
retaliation agaist U.S. forces

WASHINGTON (1P) -_ Secretary'
of Defense Melvin R. Laird said
last night the United States has
shown North Vietnam "we do have
the capability" to rescue the
Americans they hold prisoner and
warned of strong counter-meas-
ures should the Communists re-
taliate against their captives for
the U.S. raid on a POW compound.
Laird said that raid, which
rescued no one, was a signal to
Hanoi "that we care about these!
men, and that we will take rather
unusual means to see that these
men are returned as free Amer-
The defense secretary told the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-

initeee that he would recommend
immediate retaliation against any
future Communist attacks on U.S.
reconnaissance aircraft, and a
full -scale bombing resumption if
a major force should invade South
Vietnam across the demilitarized,
"If a major force comes across
the DMZ, I would be strong in my
recommendation, I may not be
supported, but I would recommend
that we commence bombing,"
Laird said in nationally televised
He said he recommended Fri-
day's raid on a North Vietnamese
prisoner or war compound because
"our men were dying in captivity,"
and because American prisoners
felt they had been forgotten.
The Pentagon said it has re-!
ceived within the past two weeks
the names of 17 Americans re-
ported to have died in North Viet-

Vietnam that America does care,"
he told the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.
Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky,
here on a visit, expressed regret
that the U.S. commando raid in
North Vietnam failed to free pris-
oners of war and pledged he would
lead Vietnamese volunteers in the
next attempt to free them.

said that if prisoners of war can-
not be freed by the channel of
negotiations, "then it is your duty

cites the city's 214 disaster shelt-
ers, which can accommodate and
feed about 114,000 people.
However, Hill explains, he faces
major obstacles in running the
civil defense program in educat-
ing the community about civil
defense, and recruiting volun-
teers for emergency operations.
Presently there are only about
20 people in Ann Arbor who have
taken a course which qualifies
them to be a disaster shelter man-
ager, Hill says. Although the
course only takes about eight
hours of classroom time to com-
plete, it is essential to the oper-
ation of a shelter.
A shelter manager rations food,
administers first aid, and is gen-
erally responsible for governing

lear attack. un to 14 days.
Also, Hill explains, there are
only about 50 people in Ann Ar-
bor who are qualified to operate
radiological monitors. T h e s e
machines measure fallout and are
the only way the people in the
shelter would be able to know
when it would be safe for them to
come out after a nuclear attack.
Of these 50 people, a 1 a r g e
number are policemen or firemen
who might be too occupied w i t h
other essential emergency services
to help staff the shelters, Hill says.
He adds that a course in radio-
logical monitoring can be complet-

ident asking for the location of
their nearest sheltter.
In Hill's opinion, the lack of
public interest in civil defense isf
partially responsible for the city's
failure to provide funds to pur-
chase important civil defense
Hill says the city lacks a siren'
warning system. At the present
time emergency information can
only be tranmsitted to the people
over radio stations, and by send-
ing police cars through the streets
with public address systems.

Once a troubled student de-
cides to seek help in Ann Ar-
bor, his major problem may be
choosing among a wide variety
of counseling services offered
in the area.
Between University and com-
munity facilities, ,Ann Arbor
provides students "more mental
health facilities than are avail-
able to almost any other group,"
according to one psychiatrist.

The staff of 14 upperclass-

man the 24-hour service have
been screened for their abilities
to handle a variety of situations.
These students also work close-
