Students who are called to
service during the course of the
semester may be able to obtain
partial credit if a report pre
pared by faculty committee is
adopted by the Faculty Senate.
Seven representatives of vari
ous colleges and departments
worked out a plan for credit for
draftees or recalled reservists.
Prof. H. H. Marvin, chairman
of the committee said that pro
visions are as follows:
One-half credit will be given,
without examination after the
competition of eight weeks of
study, if the student has main
tained an average of four or bet
ter. Three-fourths credit will be
given after 12 weeks of study,
with the same grade provisions.
Full credit may be given after
12 weeks of study if they have
substantially completed the
course of study without an ex
amination. Additional Work.
If fractional credit hours were
earned in this process, the in
structor might stipulate addi
tional1 work for the student to
complete the remaining fraction
of the hour. Half or quarter
credit would result in most
A two and one-half hour
credit would be registered as two
hours, since the University does
not recognize fractional hour
A student may, with the ap
proval of the head of his de
partment or college, request an
examination for full or partial
credit in courses he is carrying.
Upon his return to school, he
must obtain full credit if the
course is a prerequisite, but if it
is merely an elective, he may
merely take the fractional credit.
In case of partial credit, he may
take an examination upon his
return to show knowledge of
the subject, and in that case he
will receive full credit.
No Special Provisions.
No special provision has been
made for students who would
ordinarily graduate in June, as
was erroneously reported earlier.
During World War II, students
with less than 18 hours to go for
a degree were allowed to gradu
ate with partial credit the last
semester. The committee did not
feel that such action was war
ranted at the present time.
No change in the policy con
cerning fees and refunds was
recommended by the committee.
Upon his return to school, the
student would, In many cases,
have to re-take a course in
which he received partial credit.
Continuin? a course by exten
sion from the point of classroom
discussion has not proved prac
tical in most cases.
If partial credit is given, the
grade earned up to the point
of leaving will be turned in for
a student.
Members of the committee
which drew up the report were:
Prof. Marvin, chairman, Prof.
Raymond Steinacher, Prof. Eu
gene Powell, Dean W. H. Mor
ton, Dean Roy M. Green, Dean
Earl S. Fullbrook, and Prof. M.
S. McCreight.
This report will be presented
to the Faculty Senate at its next
Draft Married Men?
Childless husbands aged 19
through 25, and thousands of pre
sent 4-Fs are coming increasingly
closer to draft than are most 18
year olds, according to talk in
Washington. Short-service vets
with no World War II time over
seas are being considered poten
tial inductees also.
House and senate leaders are
questioning the defense depart
ment's request for a draft of 18
year olds for 27 months, inte
grated into permanent universal
military service and training
(UMT). They were not talking
about actually killing the plan to
lower the induction age but they
preferred another look at the 19
25 age group first.
Under chairman Lyndon John
son of the senate preparedness
sub-committee "general safe
guards" provisions, the men from
19 to 25 now deferred as 4-Fs
would be re-examined as well as
290,000 non-veteran husbands in
the same age group.
Measure Proposed
Chairman Vinson of the house
armed service committee sup
ported both of these measures
and proposed another. He would
take those with no overseas or
combat service in World War II
before 18 year olds.
All veterans are now deferred
by law as well as men with de
pendents. If 18-year-olds are called, those
nearest 19 will be taken first,
General Marshall promised the
committees. Both committee
heads agreed that some 18-year-olds
will be needed if the forces
are to be built up to the 3,462,205
persons approved by the presi
dent. Marshall urges universal mili
tary service and training as a
permanent fixture in the future
planning of the defense depart
ment. He took personal responsi
bility for tying the UMT measure
and the draft of 18-year-olds to
gether. Marshall contended that induc
tion of vets and men with de
pendents is the only alternative
if 18-year-olds are not used. He
asked that no legal restrictions
be put on the drafting of the 18
year age group and repeated his
assurance that no draftee taken
in at the start of the program
will be sent to combat areas be
fore his 19th birthday except in
"dire emergency."
Lack Of Time
In his plea, Marshall said that
this country does not now have
the time a year to 22 months
that it took to raise and train a
division in the last war. If we
had had UMT in 1947 "we would
not be threatened with war to
day," he added.
The secretary of defense was
lead-off witness before the house
committee for a bill to (1) lower
the draft age to 18 from the pre
sent 19 (2) raise the service term
from 21 to 27 months (3) hold
the men in reserve or national
guard units for a period of yea.i-s
after their terms of active duty
and (4) carry the program into
permanent UMST as fast as the
current world emergency per
mits. In asserting his beliefs Mar
shall said, "My thinking is going
beyond next June." His current
goal is to have 3,462,000 by that
Senator Wherry has said draft
regulations may be altered to
allow temporarily deferred col
leg students to choose their
branch of military service when
they are inducted.
Adoption of such a measure
would dispel present fears among
college men of being drafted
and going directly into the in
fantry. College Men Enlist.
According to reports many
young men are leaving colleges
now in order to enlist and get
the right to select their branch.
Present laws prohibit this choice
to draftees.
Wherry conferred with W. P.
Hieronymus, president of Mid
land college at Fremont, Neb.
and R. E. Norton, president of
Dana college at Blair, Neb. Then
he contacted Secretary of De
fense Marshall and Draft Di
rector Lewis Hershey.
Later Assistant Secretary of
Defense Anna Rosenberg ad
vised him that the defense de
partment is giving serious con
sideration to the proposal. She
told Wherry the department
could not at this time say def
initely whether it would go along
with the suggestion. She implied
that an early decision would
probably be made.
The senator said however, that
he thinks there is every reason
to hope that the request for
change will be granted sub
stantially in the form asked.
Air Guard Called.
Approximately 180 University
students were affected by the re
cent call of the Nebraska Air
National Guard to active duty.
The group will report to the Lin
coln air base Apr. 1. They will
train there until other base facil
ities are open, according to air
force officials in Washington.
The units wlich were called
were the 132nd air base group,
the 173rd fighter squadron, jet
and the 173rd weather station.
The 438th Troop Carrier Wing
of Omaha, which included a
number of University students
was also called to active duty, ef

proposal to draft a "foreign le
gion." The proposal, made by
Sen. Edwin C. Johnson of Col
orado, calls for the enlistment of
one million western Europeans in
the U.S. army.
Senator Johnson said such a
force should "remove all mili
tary demands for drafting our
18-year-old boys." He also be
lieves that it would solve some
of the nation's domestic man
