Drop-Outs Meet Draft,
Studenti Still Deferred
Easing the mind of virtually-even-
male student at the
University. Col. Fancis Drath. '
deputy director of the Nebras
ka Selective Service, said that
students '"satisfactorily pursu-
i n g a full-time course in
school" need not be too con
cerned about being drafted.
Col. Drath defined full
time" as 12 hours of course
work at the University.
'Satisfactorily." he defined
as being high enough to re
main at the University.
However, the student de
ferment can be terminated at
any time if the student drops
out of school, he added.
The draft makes deferments
to those persons whose "ac-i
tivity and study is essential to
the national health, safety or
interest," according to Drath.
Students come under this
category, because "the more
education you have, the more
useful you will be in civilian
life and also in military life.
ii you must serve."
For this reason, the Selec
tive Service is designed "to
encourage young men to stay
in school as long as they have
the financial and menial re
sources." he said.
Oil. Drath emphasized that
ft deferment is just a delay of
induction and not an exemp
tion. A deferment lasts for

Work Study Aid
Student employment at the
University is receiving a boost
this year from the W o r k
Study Program under Presi
dent Johnson's War on Pover
ty program.
The program, administered
through the Scholarship and
Financial Aids division of the
University, is aimed at pro
viding jobs for students from
low income families.
Students not eligible for this
program are able to secure
iobs through the same office,
however, either in the form
of a work scholarship or as a
regular part-time job.
Salaries for the program
ran from 85c to $2.75 an hour,
for Irish school students
through doctoral students.
According to Dr. Edward
Lundak. director of Scholar
ships and Financial Aids, jobs
outside the federal program
will be given first to approxi
mately 400 students who have
received work scholarships.
"There should be enough
jobs for any student who
wants to work and whose
schedule permits reasonable
hours for a part-time job."
Lundak said.
One of the benefits of the
Work-Study Program is that it
allows University offices to ex
pand their personnel without
increasing their budgets.
The regular administrative
staff of the University, for in
stance, has not expanded ap
preciably despite the increase
in the number of students, ac
cording to Roy Loudon of the
University Personnel Depart
ment. "It's hard to expand a staff
as fast as the pressures of the
work require." Loudon said.
"The students in the program
help take up some of the
slack caused by an increase
in work volume.
The re-organization of t h e
dormitory administrations has

Information regarding test

viewed. The national Selective Sen
ice headquarters has issued
an order which makes it pos
sible for local draft boards to
get a transcript of credits on
students if they want, accord
ing to Col. Drath. However,
he said the Nebraska Selective
Service is "not urging" local
boards to do this.
One stipulation for d e f e r -mcnt
is that the student must
be in a recognized school.
Col. Drath noted that in re
cent years, this has come to
mean everything from barber
college to business and voca
tional schools.
Although be noted no par

he said there were some ho

who had not previously in
tended to continue their edu
cation. A graduate student must,
however, carry nine hours and
must be admitted as a candi
date for a degree. He cannot
just continue to take courses
after graduation.

is 235 and 260. This is five or
six times as large as the
same two months last year.'

nel changes since last year,
'Loudon said.
The University received
$180,000. this academic year,
which in turn is allocated to
the deans of the five major
colleges, the administration
and several off-campus agen
cies. About 700 students are ex
pected to participate in the fall
program, which officially be
gan Sept. 7.
"The first step for a student
to become eligible for the pro
gram is to submit a confiden
tial financial statement for
approval.' Lundak said.
Once the student's eligibility
has been approved, he can be
placed in secretarial work, la
bor, clerical work or any of
other numerous jobs.
An estimated 1.000 Univer
sity students are eligible for
the program this year, accord
ing to Lundak.
The jobs available include
several hundred off-campus
openings. Lundak said. Many
jobs are filled through depart
ments of the University and
paid for from the department
During the summer, the
University employed 891 stu
dents, including 470 high
school graduates who are en
tering as freshmen.
"One of the limiting factors
in the summer program was
the fact that wt had more
jobs than students eligible,"
Lundak said.

the University.
Unlike former University
student governments, this one
no longer includes only a
council of some 35 members
from the different colleges,
but rather a setup similar to
a national government.
