aid ties
to draft
New rules for enforcing the law which
would deny student financial aid to men
who fail to register for the draft will be
released Friday, officials at the Depar-
tment of Education said yesterday.
The revised rules are less stringent
than the original set of proposals issued
in early February. The initial proposal
would have required all male students
applying for financial aid to submit
proof they registered with the Selective
UNDER THE new proposal, students
would only be required to sign a
statement saying they are registered
for the draft.
The changes were sparked by a
record-setting 3,200 letters from
schools, colleges and educational
organizations to the Department of
Education, objecting to the first set of

the cuts, because of the uncertainty of

"The timing of the reductions has a-

Opponents of Proposal A say that the biggest
problem with it is that is is being proposed as a char-

wide referendum.
Supporters of the proposal say that since there is

City Council recently passed a backup ordinance in

not require landlords to provide the energy conser-

upsets 'U'
University officials will meet with
staff members of the Women's Infor-
mation Network Bulletin early next
month to decide whether the University
will continue to fund the newsletter.
The controversy surrounding the
bulletin began in December, when
editor Deeda Stanczak says she was
told that the bulletin's funds would be
cut off because University ad-
ministrators were unhappy with an ar-
ticle in which non-instructional staff
members criticized the University's
salary program.
IN THE ARTICLE, published in the
bulletin's November issue, staff mem-
bers expressed dissatisfaction with
"ridiculously small" pay raises and
