Nearing Advises Cooperative LifeI

Scott Nearing, free-lance lecturer
and author yesterday told an Ann
Arbor audience of students and towns-
people gathered in Unity Hall that the
future of this generation lies in the
adoption of a cooperative way of life.
Describing the development of com-
petition as a way of life, Nearing de-
clared that it inevitably has become
monopolistic and totalitarian in char-
acter. This generati6n must adopt
a cooperative way of life, he asserted,
or it will find itself the victim of

the ultimate consequences of com-
petitive totalitarianisms-war and
Competition, he stated, finally re-
solves itself into the question of "will
we eat them or will they eat us?" and
the world is doing that today with all
the intensity that modern techniques
are capable of, he added.
"To abandon its degenerate com-
petitive mode of life, give social direc-
tion to the immensely productive ca-
pacities of this age for the benefit
of all, is the decision the present gen-
eration must make," Nearing stressed.
Individual progress as well as the
progress of the social groups depends3
on making that decision, he pointed!
out. Private enterprise is virtually a
myth today in our so-called "competi-
tive capitalist economy," Nearing
said, warning that all individual lib-
erty would suffer the same fate un-
less the basic change to a cooperative

Selective Service Act created a spe-
cial draft classification for students
enrolled in college this year.
As far as the law is concerned, all
students possessing both draft quali-
fication and sufficiently low registra-
tion numbers are automatically de-
ferred until July 1 or until the end
of their school year. They become
t eligible for service on the datle which
comes first.
The official classification in which
students find themselves during de-
ferrment is ID which automatically
expires on July 1.
