RAMALLAH, Occupied West Bank.
(AP) - Israeli military authorities jailed'
three influential Palestinians, confined
others to their towns and dispatched
troops to patrol streets of this restive
Arab city yesterday to quell a planned

THE ACTIONS came after a week of
scattered demonstrations challenging
Israel's occupation of the West Bank of

remin ing them of their responsibility
The government's major obstacle in
identifying non-registrants is its lack of
access to Social Security numbers.
Currently, individuals are not legally
required to include their social security
number on their registration form.
LAFFERTY predicted, however,
that this soon will change. The ad-
ministration presently is lobbying
Congress to change the laws governing
access to Social Security numbers.
"I think they (the government) will
get authority to require Social Security
numbers on registration forms," Laf-
"ONCE THEY have that, they'll be
able to find out who is registered that

that the government will be able to
identify non-registrants by comparing
the list of Social Security numbers sup-
plied by the IRS with the list of
registrants. He added, however, that
this procedure would be effective only
for those individuals who failed to.
register after congressional authority
had been granted.
Lafferty believes that the Reagan
administration has failed to rescind
President Carter's executive order
resuming registration because it has
plans to institute the draft.
"I don't think it's possible for the
United States to wage certain kinds of
war with the current army," Lafferty
said. "If you want to intervene in the

THE ADMINISTRATION, however,
0 turned that first group away because it
did not represent an official union. So in
April 1974, graduate student assistants
voted to form the Graduate Employees
Organization. The election was san-
ctioned by MERC and GEO became the
official bargaining unit for graduate
After GEO's official certification, the
union - demanded wage increases,
smaller class size, greater involvement
in curriculum decisions and an end to
alleged racial and sexual
discrimination by the University.
eNegotiators from GEO and the ad-
ministration bargained for eight mon-
ths. A MERC-appointed mediator was*
called in and GEO offered to submit to
,binding arbitration-an offer the ad-
)ninistration refused. After efforts to
avert a strike failed, 700 union mem-
bers walked out on February 12, 1975.
CLASS ATTENDANCE was cut by
one-half the first day of the strike.
.Students did not know which classes
would be held and which would be can-.
celed during the first week. Some un-
dergraduate students supported their
TAs and joined the picket lines. Others
simply boycotted classes altogether.
Three weeks into the strike, both
sides submitted bargaining positions to
a MERC-appointed fact-finder. One
week later, a settlement was reached,
and the GEO contract was approved.
That contract, however, was due to
expire in August 1976. The deadline was
extended several times as negotiations
headed toward a stalemate. In early
November, the University refused to
sign a contract until GEO withdrew two
grievances it had against the ad-
ministration under the previous con-
tract. GEO refused to withdraw the
grievances and instead filed an unfair
labor practice with MERC.
In. August 1977, MERC Ad-
ministrative Law Judge Shlomo Sperka
ruled that the University had not
bargained in good faith with the union
and ordered the administration to sign
the 1976-77 contract.
The University then appealed the
ruling to the full MERC board, claiming
that it did not have to bargain with GEQ
because graduate student assistants
were students, not employees.
Last week a full MERC board upheld
Sperka's ruling and said that most
graduate student assistants are "em-
ployees," under the state Public Em-
ployment Relations Act. The ruling or-
dered the University to sign the 1976-77

The lecture is intended to show that linguistics and

administration has in mind. It's all
part and parcel of a general military

According to Lafferty, if the draft
were ever resumed, student defermen-
ts would not be granted. The only
deferments that would be recognized
,would be, for conscientious objectors
and for men who are in poor health,
