ILLINOIS News Briefs By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) — Rival religious and political factions in Northern Ireland said' today that agitation is likely to continue despite an impassioned call for peace in the streets by Premier Terence O'Neill. O'Neill warned in a television address Monday night that civil disorders had brought the state to the "brink of chaos" and that demonstrators should accept his government's policy of gradual, reforms. •. ! Roman Catholic civil rights j groups said O'Neill's plea was; "statesmanlike," but they were • disappointed the one-man one-j vote principle and other elector-1 al reforms had not been announced. "Until these have been, granted, the civil rights campaign; must continue," a spokesman said. Protestant extremists said > they would continue their fight to preserve the constitution from change.

ANDERSON Associated Press Writer SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) — The State of Illinois has provided more than 78,000 men for the Vietnam war through the Illinois Selective Service System since 1964. Director John Hammack of the Illinois Selective Service System said in an interview that 10,550 men are in the ready-to-be-drafted pool in Illinois. An area of men considered untouchable in the past will soon be getting their "greetings" from the U.S. Army — students attending graduate school in Illinois colleges, Hammack said. Hammack said he expects a cutback in induction levels if a settlement is reached in the war. "There probably wouldn't be any callups for a few months until the services got back down to dize," he said. "But if the war continues, I expect callups to increase sharply for at least the first part of 1969." Hammack said the lifting of deferments from all graduate students except persons studying medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, osteopathy and optometry has had little effect on the graduate schools because of recent light draft calls. In addition, fewer of the comparatively older men pass the physicals than do the younger. Ulcers, for example, are a big problem among graduate students, he said. Also, many of those students eligible for the draft enrolled for the current semester and have been granted temporary deferments to finish the term. Next semester many of these graduate students will be inducted, he said. About half the 78,000 Illinois men drafted since 1964 have enlisted in other services, Hammack said. He said most of those enlisting do so as a direct result of the draft. Right now. says .Hammack, the Illinois Selective Service System has 10,550 men in its raady-to-be-drafted pool. Another 104,000 are deferred students (classified 2S) and 2l>000 arc 18-and '19-year-old 1 , high school students. A total of 110,000 Illinois men are currently serving in all branches (ID) and 36,000 are National Guardsmen or in the reserves. The unacceptable by current standards, but liable for consideration in time of national emergency (1Y), persons number 163,000. Another 45,000 are considered unacceptable under any conditions (4F). The 156,500 veterans under 35 years of age are classed 4A and the 25,000 men given occupational deferments are classed 2A. Fathers and! those granted hardship deferments total 217,000 and those betwen 26 or 35 (depending on whether or not they were ever deferred) and 47 total 913,000. About 6,000 clergy and divinity students are deferred (4D). In 1967, 33,064 men were tested by Selective Service. A total of 21,198 were accepted and 11,866 rejected. During the last 20 years an average of 34 per cent of Illinois men flunked the Army tests compared with 42 per cent nationwide. Of those rejected, 72.2 per cent failed the physical, 11.6 per cent failed the mental test and 2 per cent failed both. Slightly over four per cent were deemed morally unacceptable. Hammack suggested that a higher percentage of Illinois men passed the tests than the rest of the nation because of higher prevailing educational standards than in rural and southern states. Less than one per ccent of linois men, 991, were accepted as conscientious objectors. "And surprisingly enough," said 1 Hammack, "of the 211 boys now serving 'CO jobs' in Illinois hospitals, from the reports we get, almost all of them are doing a very fine conscien- tous job." Hammack said the lifting of the graduate student deferments and a curtailment of staf- fers in Illinois draft boards has J seriously strained his manpow-1 cr. ' : Following a July 1 austerity 'order, the Selective Service divisions across the nation were ordered to replace only 70 per cent, of its employes who leave. "The boards will not be able to treat the public with the i courtesy we would like them to jand some offices will have to ' be closed," Hammack said. In Illinois, the Selective Serv- • ice staff is down 20 per cent with the bulk of the losses in metropolitan areas. SEASON'S GREETINGS ft?
