DRAFT LOOPHOLE:
Campus ROTC ill Offer
Students DraftExemption

By CRAIG WILSON
There is a loophole in the new
Draft Law for University students
interested in enlisting in the
ROTC unit on campus, according
to Col. Karl L. Henion, command-
ing officer of= Military Tactics.
"The local unit is in a position
to accept several hundred students
into its primary program, which
will make them draft exempt,"
Col. Henior said.
According to the Dr aft law, stu-
dents may be accepted by the
ROTC, and thereby become ex-
empt "Within such number as
may be prescribed by the - Secre-
Telecast of Louis Fight
Not Attempted Friday
- Explanation for the difficulty
encountered by local barkeeps in
efforts to provide a telecast of the
Louis-Walcott fight was given
when a spokesman for television
advised The Daily that WWJ-TV
was not attempting to televise the!
bout on Friday night. ,

tary' of Defense." Col. Henion re-
ported that "no definite ceiling has
been received as yet, and at pres-
ent our quota is limited only by
the adequacy of facilities and
equipment and the number of in-
structors available."
Qualifications for entry into
ROTC are comparable to the Uni-
versity entrance requirements, ac-
cording to Col. Henon.
However, if there is a heavy
rush to enlist, it may be necessary
to set up a "more rigorous stndard;
including scholastic record, Uni-
versity psychological testing,
ROTC aptitude tests and an Army
Officers physical examination,"
he said.
Col. Henion pointed out that,
although all students who com-
plete their freshman and sopho-
more years in the program are not
accepted for the junior and senior
year programs, they would have
an exemption to carry them
through two years of college.

Twelve basic goals in a charter
of educational rights and privi-
leges for American high schools
were proposed yesterday by Prof.
Fred S. Dunham of the education
school.
"These goals are basic to a gen-
eral education for all, within the
reach of all-'and attainable by all
through appropriate experience,"
Prof. Dunham said. But they also
represent the needs if not the will,
of the special groups who consti-
tute segments of the circle, he
added.
"Each of these groups, as well
as every individual within each
group, is entitled to recognition."
Included among the goals are
an understanding of democracy
and a high regard for those Amer-
ican institutions which promote'
the general welfare of mankind;
an admiration for all that is good,
true, useful and beautiful in our
culture and daily life; and a mas-
tery of those fundamentals re-
quired for effective and worthy
living.
The charter also includes the
continuous growth of special abil-
ities within the individual's limi-
tations'; exploration of as many
fields of thought and creativeness
as time and place permit; culti-
vation of those health and saf-
ety habits which lead to mental
and physical well-being; and oc-
cupational and vocational infor-
mation but not at the expense of
our cultural education.
The list continues with: the de-
velopment of sincerity and hon-
esty in judgment and a habit of
scientific procedure; understand-
ing and fair-mindedness in our re-

lations with other racial, relig-
ious and social groups attaining a
personality and character agree-
able and self-ennobling; an awak-
ening of wholesome emotion as a
drive to worthy action and reali-
zation of the value of teamwork
and fair sportsmanship in work
and play.
Notes

bah dances, Pat Reid, League

Girls who wish to usher for the

Reid announced.

torial service for all students in-
terested.

tors, and those who would want

dergraduate Offices of the League.

jor, in which case they may have

Anglicisrns.,.
Prof. Lawrence B. Kiddle, of the
Romance languages department,

the Linguistic Institute at 12:30
p.m. in thesUnionon the subject of

Lima, Peru."

ceiling and the balconies of Con-
vention Hall did almost as much
as the long oratory to make the
delegates sweat and squirm. No
delegate could be sure at any mo-
ment that he was not on a na-
tional hook-up, and he had to act
accordingly. And no speaker
could be sure what he'd look like
on the screen. Governor Green of
Illinois, the keynote speaker, was
the only one who came prepared
-he had a beautiful sun-tan.
Certainly the reporters resented
all the attention the television
crews got in press conferences. It
was sometimes hard to see the
candidate through a maze of
lamps, wires and brilliant light.
But the television crews were un-
daunted. They even followed
Pennsylvania delegates into a cau-
cus, as if there weren't enough
heat there already.
There is no doubt that press, ra-
dio, and television interfere with
the real work of a nation il politi-
cal convention. Television, par-
ticularly. Rebecca West, brilliant
English novelist who attended the
GOP convention, doesn't like the
accent on this "mecharnical" cov-
erage. She says it separates the
speakers from the delegates and
the delegates from one another;
it destroys any spontaneity and
sincerity. As a matter of fant,
she's quite right. Unofficially,
any delegate would prob~)ly
agree.
Officially, however, any party
leader will tell you that the peo-
ple have to know what's going on.
It makes for confidence in the
party. It's also true that the peo-
ple have come to regard the Re-
publican and Democratic national
convention as "festive occasions.
That's where television comes in.
So the gripes will continue and
so will television. It's what the
people want.
