House passes registration bill

WASII1N;TON (' - The
House rushed through a post-
card voter registration bill at
Jimmy Carter's request yester-
day but knocked out a provision
for mailing the postcards to
every American household.
The bill was passed on a 239-
14' vote.
THE BILL'S floor manager,
House Administration Chairman
Frank Thompson (D-N.J.) said
a deletion of the provision for
mailing postcards to some 150
million voting-age Americans
would "destroy the legislation."
But backers of the move said
it would save $25 million in mail-
ing costs. Distribution of the
postcards for registering to vote
will be left up to the states. The
provision was defeated 255 to
1,0.
Democratic presidential nom-
inee Jimmy Carter asked the
[touse two weeks ago to act
quickly so people could register
to vote by postcard for the No-
vember election.

hOUSE Speaker Carl Albert
estimated Democrats would get
75 per cent of the new voters
signing up. -
Republicans and some Demo-
crats denounced the bill as an
election-year dirty trick and said
it would open the way to vast
voter fraud through filing of
postcards for nonexistent voters.'
Thompson told newsmen the
bill will help people in states
that already have postcard regis-
tration by automatically regis~
tering them for November's
election.
HE SAID that postcards also
will be available for distribution
by voting organizations for reg-
istering voters for this election.
Thompson said this includes
organized labor, which is more
likely to use the postcards to
sign up Democrats-which some
Republicans had charged was
the primary purpose of the bill
in the-,first place,

that called for mailing the -Vst-

cards to every American house-
hold, which the House knocked
out, had been essential to the
bill to prevent the charge that
it was aimed at such special
interest groups.
"THE ORGANIZED labor
people who wanted this bill so
badly never had the nerve to
ask that the postcards not be
mailed to everybody," Thomp-
son said.
Thompson said the bill could
allow millions of people to regis-
ter for the November election
unless President Ford vetoes it,
which, he said, is likely.
Thompson said the Senate
plans to move quickly on the
bill late this month after Con-
gress returns from the Republi--
can National Convention next
week,
'THE POST cards would have
to get to potential voters in time
for them to have them back in
the mail by October 4, a month
before the November election.

STUJDEHT
Your attention is called to
the following rules possed by
the Regents at their meeting
on February 28, 1936: "Stu-
dents shall pay all accounts
due- the University not later
than the lost day of classes
of each semester or summer
session. Student loans which
are not paid or renewed are
subject to this regulation;
however, student loans not
vet due are exempt. Any
unoid accounts at the close
of business on the lost day
of classes will be reported to
the Cashier of the University'
and
"(a) All academic credits
will be withheld, the grades
for the semester or summer
session just completed will
not be released, and no
transcript of credits will be
issued.
"Ib) All students owing
such accounts will not be
allowed to register in any
subseuent semester or sum-
mer session until payment
has been made,'

Island's south shore flocked to
beaches to gave in awe at a
sea whipped to fury by the ten-
tacles of the oncoming storni.
However, most summer visitors
had fled the area.
AT LEAST half the residents
of Narragansett, R.I, refused
to leave bayside homes and po-
lice withdrew emergency serv-
ice from the area.
In South Jersey, 12,000 per-
sons were evacuated from Long
Beach Island and Barnegat Pe-
ninsula, leaving only police in
the area. Said Civil Defense cs-
ordinator Bill Hays: "Don't try
to go aboard the islands, be-
cause you'll be staring down a
double barrel shotgun. I'm not
kidding."
Twenty National Guard medi-
cal corpsmen were assigned to
spend the night at a Connecticut
facility for 220 retarded chil-
dren. On Staton Island, N.Y.,
225 patients, were transferred
from one state hospital to a sec-
ond on higher ground.

Guard Maj. Gen. John Freund
said 52 helicopters and 100 pilots
were on standby for possible re-
lief missions.
Correction
In Saturday's Daily we in-
correctly reported that the
SAT's for the incoming fresh
class were lower than previous
year's. The story should have
said SAT scores for the past
year's fresh class had dropped.
Also the median GPA of the
class did not fall, tut only the
medial high school rank.

the sun peeked out there, and
winds subsided.
As Belle passed Virginia, its
core was close enough to be felt
on land, although most of its
fury was spent at sea. The
storm began hitting South Jer-
sey with torrential rains at the
evening rush hour.
W h il e retaining hurricane
strength over o p e n water,
Belle's winds were expected to
drop as low as 40 m.p.h. with
the storm's anticipated mid-eve-
ning landfall in central or east
ern Long Island. Gusts, how-
ever, were forecast in excess of
the hurricane minimum of 74
m.p.h.
HOWEVER, from the point of
view of high tides and potential
flooding the weather service
saw it was potentially the most
dangerous hurricane in the met-
ropolitian area in 16 years.
With a full moon adding its
pull, Belle was expected to gen-
erate tides at the Battery on-
the tip of Manhattan equalling
or exceeling the record 10.5 feet
above mean low water set in
190 by Hurricane Donna, which
claimed 14 lives.
Police offered free sandbags
to New Yorkers who live in low-
lying areas. City 1lall suggested
that as many as 500,000 would
be in the path of threatened
flood waters. National Guard
a rm o r ie s and some public
schools were opened to eva-
cuees.
"We're as ready as we can
be," Carey declared. "We don't
have cause to worry if people-
stay on the alert."
