Pmfr Credit F leseinrhitstAsk BffMJ!i8iwm 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 courses. A two and one-half hour credit would be registered as two hours, since the University does not recognize fractional hour credit. 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 meeting. 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 time. 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 fective Apr. 1.

Hanson President Of Red Cross Unit Deferments For Grads Ordered Mid-Year Men Given 30 Days Two events highlighted the draft news Monday.

Other officers chosen at the Jan. 15 election are: Pat Wied' A tie The law now provides vnai, college students be deterred irom induction until they complete their current terms. The new ruling provides for an extension of that deferment for mid-year graduates. This will give them a chance to secure jobs in essential indus try, which may in turn provide further deferment. Maj. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, selective serv ice director, acted because of an ureent need for graduating sen iors in some essential fields of industry. tm ji v, ; L fS ine seconu event, muk.ui. heartened 18-year-olds, was tne 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 power shortages and internation al difficulties.
