Draft ExamI
Rules Given
University Announced As Testing
Center; Examination Dates Set
WASHIN.GTON-(P)-The University was named by the Selective
Service yesterday as one of the 1,000 examination centers at which
college students will take tests for possible draft deferment.
The agency also set fBorth the rules of the examination which will
be given May 26, June 16 and June 30.
*.* * * *
THERE WAS no announcement of the "passing" grades to be re-
quired or the scholastic standing which also will be considered.
A Selective Service spokesman said these standards will be
announced later.
The tests will be given to draft registrants who have begun, and
plan to continue, their college or university studies, graduate or
High school graduates and others who are candidates for admission
to their first year of college will not be eligible to take the test until
they have entered college.
* * * *
THE SELECTIVE SERVICE announcement said:
"The test presupposes no schooling beyond the ordinary high
school preparation for college.
"Scores on the test will not themselves determine eligibility for
"Scores on the test, together with evidence of scholastic perform-
ance in college, will be used by the Selective Service local boards in
considering the eligibility of registrants for occupational deferment,
as students."
THE ANNOUNCEMENT said all eligible registrants who wish to
take the test should apply immediately.
They must get a postcard application from any local draft
board, fill it out and mail it in.
The application blank, in the form of a double postcard, may be
obtained only from draft boards. It is already addressed-not to the
draft board but to the Selective Service examining section of Educa-
tional Testing Service, P.O. Box 586, Princeton, N.J. The student does
no addressing-just folds the double card after filling it out, applies
a stamp, and mails the complete card. The address is on the reverse
side of the application form.
* * . ."
SAMPLES of the application-SSS form No. 106 and attached
SSS form No. 107-have been mailed to colleges throughout the coun-
try but may not be- used in applying. Usable forms can be had only
from draft boards.
On the application, each registrant must designate an exami-
nation center and its number, chosen from the list announced
yesterday. The centers are at colleges throughout the United States
and the territories.
The Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, which'
is administering the test, will assign each man to the center re-
quested or to the closest posible alternative center, and give him a
date for his test.
Each student should mail only one application. Tickets of admis-
sion to the testing center will be issued as rapidly as possible. No ticket
wil be issued to a man who files more than one application.
In reporting for the test, the student must bring an official docu-
ment showing his Selective Service number and the draft board which
has jurisdiction over him.
Each applicant can take the test only once. ,

Curbs Power
Of President
Democrat Move
Delays Final Vote
ate overrode administration lead-
ers yesterday and went on record
against sending more than four
more divisions of American ground
troops to Europe without Congres-
sional approval.
By a vote of 49 to 43, it adopted
a limiting amendment by Senator
McClellan (D-Ark.) and wrote it
into a controversial troops-for-
Europe resolution.
IN THE FACE of this setback,
Democratic leaders secured a re-
cess of the Senate until today,
abandoning plans to seek a final
vote last night on the troops-to-
Europe resolution.
Administration leaders
thought they had disposed of
the Mc Clellan amendment two
hours earlier when the Senate
voted 46 to 44 to reject it.
But on a surprise motion to re-
consider the action, the Senate
voted 49 to 43 to revive the amend-'
ment and bring it before the cham-
ber again.
IT WAS PASSED by the same
majority on reconsideration, and
then its supporters made the adop-
tion final by shouting down a mo-
tion to reconsider.
Mc Clellan's provision says:
"It is the sense of the Senate
that no troops in addition to such
four divisions shoulddbe sent to
Western Europe in implementation
of article three of the North At-
lantic Treaty without further Con-
gressional approval."
It also wrote into the resolu-
tion an amendment by Senator
Watkins (R-Utah) calling for eli-
mination of provisions in the Ital-
ian peace treaty limiting that
country's military strength.
West Draws~
For Confab
PARIS-(A)-The three Western
powers re-drafted their proposed
agenda for a Foreign Ministers
Conference at the beginning of
their fifth week of talks yesterday.
But Russia's Andrei Gromyko
criticized its omission of what he
described as t h e "dangerous"!
North Atlantic Pact.
GROMYKO also objected to
other parts of the western re-
draft, but officials who were pres-
ent said he did not reject it.
The main section of the re-
draft read:
1. Examination of the causes
and the effects of present inter-
national tensions.
"The existing level of orma-
ments and armed forces and mea-
sures for international control and
reduction of armaments and
armed forces including those of
the Russia; the United Kingdom,

Republican candidates for the University's Board of Regents,
incumbent Roscoe 0. Bonisteel of Ann Arbor and newcomer Leland I.
Doan of Midland, were maintaining a commanding lead over, their
two democratic opponents as The Daily went to press at 2 a.m. today.
Unofficial returns from 1,553 of Michigan's 4,358 recincts gave
Bonisteel, an attorney seeking his second term as Regent, a total of
116,833 votes. Doan, president of the Dow Chemical Co., followed
closely with 116,413 tallies.

IT MIGHT AS WELL BE-Even though the weather doesn't indicate it, spring was given its offi-
cial sendoff yesterday as Michigan's Rose Bowl champion football team began preparation for the
1951 season. Linemen went through the usual blocking drills on the dummies with line coach Jack
Blott (background) adding aid and encouragement.


Spring Football Drills Open

Wintry blasts gave spring foot-
ball a cool reception yesterday, but'
85 young men who hope to enter
the Wolverine grid picture next fall
didn't seem to notice it as the 1951
drills opened.
With a paucity of lettermen
present (they are excused from the
vernal practice sessions), Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan and his assis-
tants concentrated on whipping

freshman and junior varsity as-
pirants into shape.

'em through their paces!" was
echoed by line coach Jack Blott's
hurry-up voice as a beefy group of
forward-wall hopefuls worked on
the dummies and went through a
live tackling drill.
Last season's most valuable
gridder, Don Dufek, was around
to help out as the more exper-

fenced backfield men ran
through signal drills. Dufek's
words of advice were particularly
directed to the fulback candi-
dates who must master the tricky
ballhandling, requisite for that
position in the Michigan single-
wing system.
The fullback post and both half-
back positions are wide open at
this time, first-stringers Dufek,
Chuck Ortman, and Leo Koceski
will be graduated this spring.

Faculty, Students Laud
New. Deferment Policy

Reactions to the deferment poli-
cy for college men brought an ad-
vocacy of a federal system of
scholarships from one college
dean, whoops of joy from the av-
erage student and general appro-
val from the faculty.
"I CERTAINLY believe that the
government should provide for the
continuing supply of trained per-

of the literary college said in ap-
