"Deferment of most college stu-

the contrary, Prof. E. Lowell Kelly,
Director of the Bureau of Psycho-

PROS. KELLY now serves on an
advisory board to Selective Ser-
vice Director Maj. Gen. Lewis B.
Hershey. In this position, he has
helped formulate the present day
draft policy.
*.The draft bill Congress is now
trying to smooth out will prob-
ably leave the question of defer-
ment in the laps of the individual
draft boards.
"A few local boards may prove
unfriendly to college students, par-
ticularly those in so-called unes-
sential fields," he said. However,
he expected that most would go
along with the recommendations
of Hershey and his advisors.
PROF. KELLY defended the col-
lege deferment program from
charges of being "undemocratic."
"We must recognize that people
are not equal in abilities, and we
nust train, those most fitted for
positions of leadership."
He died admit that inequity ex-
isted in the case of men financi-
ally unable to obtain a college
education. "But the inequity is
not reduced by drafting college
students along with those cap-
able but unable to attend," he
"The advisory board pondered
this problem a long time before we

wore new summeruniforms and
freshly-issued rubber-soled shoes.
Allied infantry patrols re-
entered Uijongbu, 11 miles north
of the old Korean capital. One
platoon withdrew after smack-

on a ridge northeast of the city.
Air strikes were called. Artil-
lery opened up on other small
pockets of Chinese west, north
and east of Uijongbu.

Union resumed their talks yester-
They have been trying to reach
an agreement on the status of the
3,700 operators under Michigan's
Hutchinson Act.
Management officials still have
not agreed to waive application of
the act against the strikers and
union leaders have insisted that
the strike cannot be settled until
they do.
SHORTLY after the strike
started the city notified more than
3,500 of the 3,750 operators that
they were discharged under a pro-
vision of the act forbidding strikes
by public employes.
The management and union
attorneys were hopeful of com-
ing to some form of agreement
on legal issues before a union
mass meeting this morning.
The Department of Street Rail-
ways, operator of the system, re-
ported that its net loss since the
strike began is about $605,000. The
loss in revenue has been $1,800,-
000, the DSR said, and operators
have lost $662,000 in wages.

Arthur, last night uttered this fi-

tors: The free world is "doomed to
destruction" if it fails to crush
completely the Communist threat
in Korea.
The five-star general wound up
three days of virtually constant
testimony at 6 p.m. with a new
blast at President Truman, deny-
ing he ever violated a presidential
order and declaring he never got
a firm, workable plan from Wash-
ington to carry on the Korean war.
