Parents Wait Word
On Abbott And Draft
Senior Staff Writer
Steve Abbott's parents
have not received word yet
about their son's Army in
duction, scheduled for last
Thursday in Atlanta, Geor
gia. Abbott, a former Univer
sity student leader in s
letter to Rev. Hudson B.
Phillips of United Ministry
for Higher Education indi
cated that he would refuse
induction because of his de
sire to attain a Conscien
tious Objector classifica
tion. His father, Eugene Ab
bott, said Sunday that he
and his wife had received
no information whether
Steve followed through with
his planned refusal.
Abbott's induction call
followed a year-long effort
to gain draft exemption as
a CO. By refusing to be
inducted, he would commit
a felony under Georgia law
and could receive a jail
sentence of up to five years
upon conviction.
His father defended his
right to be a CO., saying,
"I am not a CO. myself, as
I had 28 years of military
experience. I am fully con
vinced that Steve has a
right to be a CO. Every
man has a right to make
a decision on his own."
The recent fighting in
Vietnam has "clouded the
issue of who is a draft
dodger and who is a
CO.," Abbott's father said.
The Lancaster Board sees
of the CO. Clause as "the
only way to keep draft
dodgers out."
Abbott, a graduate English
student at Emory Univer
sity, began his campaign
for CO. status as a Clar
field, la., school-teacher.

application at the Lan
ter County Board, he was
denied his request to be a
CO. and re-classified 1-A,
his father said.
When Abbott appealed to
the state board, they re

and instead classifed him
2-S because he was teach
ing. By the time this classi
fication expired n June,
Congress had passed a
new Selective Service law,
altering the CO. appli
cation procedure.
Under the new law the
state board could only re
view the evidence given in
the local hearing. The state
group ruled 4-0 against Ab
bott's request and set the
stage for his induction call,
his father explained.
The state draft office has
been receiving letters from
across the nation in Abbott's
behalf. The office suggested
that he write a letter to Gen.
William Hershey, national
director of the Selective

IDA Initiates Proposal
To Bar Discrimination
Within Dormitory Units
Junior Staff Writer
An a c t to prohibit dis
crimination was proposed
at the Inter-Dormitory As
sociation Council meeting
last week.
The proposed act forbids
discrimination "based on
creed, national origin, or
sex by IDA, the member
dormitories or any organ
ized dormitory groups."
The act, proposed by
Tom Briggs, would pro
hibit discrimination for so
cial functions as well as ac
tivities involving dorm
The penalty for violation
of this act must first be ap
proved by the Office of Stu
dent Affairs, according to
section 3-a of the act.
Jim Cavender (Cather
Hall) questioned IDA's au
thority to pass such an act
by saying that IDA is a co
ordinating body, not a gov
erning body."
"The Constitution ' pro
vides that IDA deal with
matters of common inter
est," replied Vice-President
Dave Shonka.
The act was tabled to
allow further investi
gation. The discussion will
be resumed at the next
The Council approved a
resolution concerning the
policy-making process of
IDA. "The resolution in
vites discussion from the

Briggs felt that a com

between the dormitories
and the IDA Council.
"This problem exists," he
said, "because the 5000
members are dispersed over
such a large area as the
Briggs felt that cirulating
the Council minutes to the
dormitories would increase
member interest.
Shonka said that the reso
lution would help the Coun
cil to find ideas. "There
may be gripes," he said,
"but at least we'll know
what the residents want."
President Brian Ride
nour urged the dorm repre
sentatives to consult those
they represent.
A co-ed visiting report by
Paul Canarsky, committee
chairman, indicated that a
modified report would
be resubmitted to the Ad
ministration for approval.
"The general format has
been set," he said.
R i d e n o u r appointed
Dana Bennett as assistant
chairman of the co-ed vis
iting hours committee.
. The IDA president also
made appointments to the
General Administrative Co
ordinating Committee.
This committee, which is
responsible for taking res
olutions to the administra
ton, includes: Daonn Bor
