"MOST STUDENTS DON'T KNOW THAT ARMY ROTC
LEADS TO AN ARMY OFFICER'S COMMISSION
Besides studying for his degree
in management, senior Scott Bacon is
also learning what it takes to become
an officer through Army ROTC.
"I attended an Army ROTC
Day during my freshman summer ori-
entation When I found out you
weren't obligated to anything your
freshman and sophomore years, I
decided to try it. I enjoy ROTC Im
learning things I normally wouldn't
learn in college. Like leadership
theories And tactics. The manage-

other management courses.

University, so I'm glad ROTC doesn't
take up a lot of time it's just a couple
of hours a week. At the end of your
junior year, you have to go to Ad-

introduced to everything the Army
has to offer. Tanks, helicopters, you

easier to get a job Corporations look
for officers, because they have expe-

Draft resister says h
By JANET RAE
A University student charged with
failing to register for the draft said last
night he wants to try to change his plea
in thecase to guilty.+
Daniel Rutt, who began taking
graduate public health classes at the
University yesterday, said he has not
discussed the change with his
American Civil Liberties Union
lawyers and is not even sure he can
legally change his plea at this late date.
But he said he has grown "comfortable
with being guilty" since he was first
charged in January.
RUTT, ONE of 15 men nationwide
being prosecuted by the federal gover-
nment for failing to register, said his
lawyers helped him to make his
original decision to plea "not guilty" by
standing mute. Several hearings later,
Rutt said he has had more time to think
about his decision not to register and
has concluded that pleading "not
guilty" may have been a mistake.
"After all, I'm guilty. That's the law.
Somebody wrote it down on a little
piece of paper and said it's against the
law not to register and I didn't,' he
said. "If that's considered a crime in
this country I'm going to plead guilty."
The 21-year-old biology graduate
from Hope College said he does not
keep in constant touch with his lawyers
and so has not had a chance to discuss
the plea change with them.
"THEY TAKE their end of the stick
and I take mine," Rutt said.
"Sometimes I don't really understand
what's going on myself."
Rutt and his lawyers are awaiting a
ruling from Federal District Court
Judge Philip Pratt which would require
the federal government to release 126
documents they say would prove Rutt is
being selectively prosecuted. the White
Le '5 guilty
House claims the documents are
protected under executive privilege. If
Pratt decides not to order release of the
documents, Rutt said the trial portion
of his prosecution could begin within a
matter of weeks.
In June, Pratt rejected a defense
request to dismiss the charges against
Rutt because the student has declared
himself to be a conscientious objector.
Pratt ruled there is no constitutional
right to such a classification.
