Gen. Guy Henninger: 'No
Deferment .Change Seen
Brig. Gen. Guy N. Henninger
announced Thursday that no mr
mediate change is pending in the
present deferment plan for col
Henninger commenting on a re
port by the Department of Higher
Education of the National Edu
cation Association said that:
"There is a growing body of opin
ion, some of it held in the high
est government circles, that there
should be an end of college deter
ments:"; He pointed out, however,
that sometime in the next year,
the supply of registered selective
service men may become so short
that the present system will have
to be altered to end some defer
ments. This will naturally affect
student deferments, he said.
Henninger stressed th,v str
dents should not become alarmed
by . the persistent rumors which
arise that college deferments will
end. Students who are doing 3ood
work should definitely stay in
school, the general said.
Prof. T. J. Thompson, Dean of
Student Affairs, blasted the re
part for "upsetting the already
unsettled students of today."
There is only one way "to win
over any Asiasic power. Dean
i .ompson said, and that is
through knowledge. For this
reason, he believes, the gov
ernment will continue to rec
ognize the need for higher ed
ucation CoL James H. Workman, chair
man of the Military Science de
partment has received no official
information of any change. Work
man personally feels that there is
a definite need for higher educa
tion among our people.
We do not know how long the
present emergency will continue,
he said, but the supply of engi
neers and trained technicians is
very short and the training of
young people to fill future posi
tions should not be curtailed.
The entire deferment plan, ac
cording to Workman, should be a
compromise between the man
power needs of the armed forces
and the overall need of th coun
try for higher education.
While the draft may involve
only an interruption of educa
tion, he said, many veterans do
not continue their education
College students polled on
their reaction to the end of col
lege deferments agreed that
only students who were se
riously interested in their edu
' cation should be deferred.
"Why is it fair that poor kids
who cannot afford to come to col

Jerry Wolpa, Omaha, feels
that the college deferment plan
should be continued if the col

a satisfactory average. Non

When all other qualifications
are equal, Wolpa believes, just as
many college students should be
called as non-college students.
Possibly the upper 500 of the male
student body would be permitted
to continued their education un
der this plan, Wolpa said.
Deferments should be nullified
