CARD' sponsor
peace vigil at
Federal Bldg.

A peace vigil sponsored by the
Washtenaw Committee Against
Registration and the Draft (CARD) and
the Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan (PIRGIM) began this mor-
ning in response to the Senate's com-
mencement of discussion on draft
registration today.
Participants in the vigil will remain
on the steps of the Federal Building in
downtown Ann Arbor until the Senate
votes on the issue, according to Natalie
Levine, co-ordinator of the event and
PIRGIM member.
THE SENATE WILL most likely vote,
on the issue in the next few days, Levine
Draft opponents decided to hold a
vigil because they"wanted something
longer (in duration) than a rally,"
Levine said. "There will be people out
there all the time who will be able to
educate people in the community," she
Levine said a core group of 15 people
will remain at the Federal Building
throughout the vigil while a total of 30 to
50 people can be expected there at any
given time.
gLAST MONTH, the House of
Representatives approved funding of
approximately $13.3 million for draft
registration of men only. Of the 19

Michigan representatives in the House,
14 voted against the proposal and five
endorsed it.
The Senate Appropriations Commit-
tee also passed the bill, but added to ita
proposal sponsored by Senator Mark
Hatfield (R-Oregon) which would
allow men to indicate their conscien-
tious objector (CO) status on the
xregistration form.
Currently, CO's must send separate
statements to the Draft Board infor-
ming it of their objections to the draft,
according to Levine.
PIRGIM member Dave DeVarti said
he believes the Senate committee and
the House passed the bill because of
pressure from the State Department
and the president. He added the "mood
of the American populace is pretty
gung-ho for the draft."
DeVarti also said he expects the
Senate to endorse the draft registration
bill, Michigan Senators Carl Levin (D-
Detroit) and Donald Riegle (D-Flint)
will most likely vote against the bill, he
If the bill passes and draft
registration is instituted, CARD and
PIRGIM members will continue their
drive to register CO's with the Draft
Board and "train draft counselors to let
people know their options," according
to Levine.

Reflections on a sunny day
A mannequin, decked-out in a brand new wedding gown but with nowhere
to go, stares forlornly at Liberty St. from her glassed-in cage. Perhaps
she's considering a round of pinball at the arcade across the street.

"IF YOU HAVE no 'Hitler' in you,
you can be completely at peace with
yourself and need never fear death,"
she added.
Kubler-Ross also said living a full life
is another prerequisite for being com-
pletely at peace. "Many dying patients
say to me, 'I made a living, but I never
really lived.' It's the biggest regret they
have," she said. "You must love the
work you are doing, and if you don't,
you should ask yourself why you are
Sdoing it."
There are two things that dying
patients want most to discuss, accor-
ding to Kubler-Ross. "First of all, they
want to talk about moments of 'uncon-
ditional love' . . . the times when they
played hooky from work and spent the

remember in the last hours of life," she
