Graduate schools may
feel crunch of draft
Washington (CPS) -Although
the nation's
graduate schools did not face
the 70 per cent reduction in
fall enrollment some
predicted last year because of
the draft, the second semester
crunch may hurt them badly.
Most universities were
taken by surprise this fall,
when the 25-50 per cent of
their students expecting to be
drafted returned to school
after all. Some universities,
"which had accepted more
graduate students than they
could handle in order to make
up for the draft's toll, have
been faced with money and
housing shortages and too
many students.
TIIEY HAD ..failed to
calculate this fall's election
and its ramifications on the
draft in their estimates last
If February, when the
Selective Service System an
nounced that graduate
students would no longer be
deferred "in the national in
terest," both universities and
the government predicted
that schools might lose up to
70 per cent of their first-year
students. They forecast a
great increase in female and
middle-aged graduate
ficials predicted that students
would make up as much as 90
per cent of the draft call-ups
in many states. The Defense
Department said 63 per cent
of the 240.000 draftees
predicted for 1909 would be
students. Students made up
3.8 per cent this year.
Dut the crunch failed to
materialize this fall. For one
thing, draft calls beginning in
Julv were drastically lower
than those for previous
months. And they will stay
that way until January when
thp elections are well over.
Mow much calls will rise
will depend on the manpower
needs of the armed forces, the
status of the Vietnam war,
and the mood of the new
President. But they are sure
to rise at least a little, ac

an official of the Scientific
Manpower Commission, a
private research agency in

for the last few years have
run in 18-month cycles; the
high point of the latest cycle
Is due in January 1969.
Whatever the increase, it is
sure to hit students harder
next semester; under present
draft regulations, the oldest
eligible males are first to go,
and graduate students newly
classified 1-A are perfect
targets. Those who receive
induction notices during the
rvrpcpn t srhnnl term are
allowed to stav in school to i drafted first - preferably by

deferment and reversal of the

But despite the fact that
total graduate enrollment has
changed very little in
numbers, the edict has not
been without effect.
several universities have
reported drops in enrollment
from one to 20 per cent.
Professional schools seem
harder hit than most. A
Valparaiso University, 25 of
150 students enrolled in the
Law School didn't register in
September. Lehigh University
reports a 13 per cent decrease
in enrollment.
And at many schools,
graduate departments found
that women and older tover

tions of their enrollees than
ever before. Some schools
claimed that their students
are of lower ability than they
would have been before the
Euch intangible evidence as
decline in graduate school
quality is, of course, almost
impossible to document. More
obvious and evident, though,
is a decline in morale among
graduate students. Young
men faced with the prospect
of being drafted have always
been burdened with an
overwhelming anxiety few
other people experience. And
graduate students this year,
knowing they are sitting atop
the proverbial powder keg
and may get the letter any
day, are unusually nervous
and fearful.
UNIVERSITIES, which op-'
posed the move to end j
graduate deferments, are j
reacting to their students'
concern in many ways
Several heavily graduate
universities, among them ;
Massachusetts institute of ,
Technology, have announced
that studnts whose education j
is interrupted by the draft i
either for two years of service
or for a jail sentence for
resistance will later be
able to resume their degree
work where they left off, and
will stand a good chance of
having their fellowships
understandably vexed. Many
of them like their students
concurred with the 1967
recommendations of the
President's Commission of
the Draft. The Commission's
report suggested a two-pronged
attack on the draft's
present inequities and in-
Fairness and equity re
quired that both those steps
be taken; if they had been,
the draft, unfairness to the
poor and uneducated would
have been partially corrected,
and at the same time educa
tion and technical skills would
have been supported.
AS IT happened, policy
makers decided to implement
only part of the recom
mendations, hoping that their
move would be popular with
those voters who consider
that students should be
drafted, and would at the
same time be lauded as
needed reform.

Kennedy's estate in this
Washington suburb, looks sad
and deserted, its pumpkin

members of the late senator
gathered on the lawn behind
the huge house.
