HOUSE VERSION:
Draft extension bill
held bycommittee
WASHINGTON (A) - The two-year draft-extension bill, already in
trouble in the Senate, hit a parliamentary standoff in the House last
night, apparently ending chances for congressional approval before
September.
"There'll be no bill tomorrow," House Rules Committee Chairman
William Colmer (D-Miss.) said yesterday, meaning the House would
not act on the draft bill today as scheduled because Colmer would not
4* clear it.
Unless Colmer's committee resolves the tangle that led to his de-
cision, the only way the House could even get the draft bill to the floor
is with an unlikely two-thirds vote.
Speaker Carl Albert said he doubts the House has any choice but
to take the draft bill off its calendar.
Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield had said earlier it was
"quite unlikely" the Senate would pass the bill before Congress starts
a month-long recess Friday, even if the House passed it today on
schedule.
The parliamentary tangle came after Colmer's committee voted 9
to 6 to permit two challenges hat could open up new House-Senate dis-
putes in the bill.
Rep. William Steiger (R-Wis.) is challenging the Oct. 1 effective
date set by conferees for a $2.4-billion military pay raise. Both the
House and Senate had passed identical language making it effective
the month after enactment.
Rep. James Broyhill (R-N.C.) disputes a section limiting the "sole
surviving son" provision to the Vietnam war. Neither house had made
such a limitation. The provision gives draft exemptions to men and
women in a family that has already suffered one member killed in
4 combat.

question
By CHRIS PARKS
City Council moved unani-
mously last night to let the
voters of Ann Arbor decide
whether locally based third
parties will be allowed on
the city ballot.
By a voice vote, council pass-
ed a resolution which will place
on the city ballot an amend-
ment to the city charter which
will set provisions by which a
party can achieve local recogni-
tion.
Under the terms of the reso-
lution, to qualify a party must
file signatures equal to 10 per
cent of the total vote gained by
the successful candidate in the
last mayoral election.
In addition, according to the
act, in each election the party's
candidates must gain a total of
at least 10 per cent of the win-
ning mayoral candidate's vote in
order to stay on the ballot.
In the past parties could only
gain a place on the ballot if
they had statewide recognition.
This requires about 15,000 votes.

Stokes chosen as grad dean

Political science Prof. Donald Stokes has been
named Dean of Rackham Graduate School by
President Robben Fleming.
Stokes, whose appointment became effective
Aug. 1, is replacing Stephen Spurr, now president
of the University of Texas at Austin.
The one-time chairman of the political science
department and program director of the Institute
for Social Research's Center for Political Studies,
has been at the University since 1957.
Stokes was chosen by Fleming from a list of
seven candidates submitted by a special search
committee. The committee, appointed consisted
of seven faculty members and two students.
Psychology Prof. Wilbert McKeachie, who
headed the committee, said he was "pleased"
with Fleming's choice and added that "I think
Stokes should be a very capable dean." {
McKeachie said the three-month old committee
screened "over 130" people suggested by the
faculty, alumni and various other groups before

turning in the seven names in mid-July. "I think
we did a very thorough job," he said.
In accepting the appointment, Stokes said "a
good deal of Michigan's strength as a university
lies in the excellence of its graduate programs.
We have no finer tradition than the quality of our
graduate instruction. I have accepted this ap-
pointment because I believe in that tradition."
He added "I am convinced that faculty and
students alike are prepared to support imagina-
tive changes in our graduate programs."
Fleming, in announcing the appointment, called
Stokes "an ideal person to lead the graduate
school in this period of increased national aware-
ness of the need to reorder priorities. A social
scientist, Dr. Stokes is aware of the need for
increased numbers of well-educated social scien-
tists and humanists."
Stokes received his B.A. in 1951 from Prince-
ton University, and his PhD. in 1958 from Yale
University.

He said in a statement: "This
action will save tens of thousands
of jobs that would otherwise have
been eliminated. It will have a
major impact on the economy of
California, and will contribute
greatly to the economic strength
of the country as a whole. It will
help ensure that the nation's larg-
est defense contractor, and its
largest airframe manufacturer,
will continue serving the nation's
needs."
Nixon emphasized that the
measure "provides no federal
dollars to the Lockheed Corp.; it
merely provides a' government
guarantee for a loan which will
be made entirely through private
institutions."
Daniel Haughton, chairman of
the board of Lockheed said the
company is gratified.
"Further, let me assure the
people of this nation and the
members of Congress of Lock-
heed's dedication to repaying the
guaranteed loans without loss to
the government," Haughton said.
Vice President Spiro Agnew
was in the presiding officer's
chair had his tie-breaking vote
been needed.
The suspense - packed vote
marked the finale of more than
two months of controversy and
debate in which the administra-
tion warned of peril to the econ-
omy if Lockheed was allowed to
go under. Opponents led by Sen.
William Proxmire (D-Wis.) said
bailing out the firm would be a
blow against free enterprise.
