Graduate students and universities were given some consolation when it was announced that Hershey had advised local draft boards to permit graduate students to finish their school term before they report for induction. This will keep students from having their course work abruptly disrupted, and will mean that teaching assistants are not drafted in the middle of a course they are teaching. But it will not help universities much in their long-range planning. Morse said. Manpower experts at the department of defense estimate that 9.500. or 16 per cent, of the 59.300 men drafted from July through October were college graduates. Before July, the draft rate among the graduates had been running less than 5 percent. In the months ahead, officials believe, the percentage of college graduate draftees will undoubtedly rise above the current 16 per cent figure. If the draft quota for the current fiscal year is to be reached, draft calls in the first six months of 1969 will have to be double those of the last six months of 1968. The January draft call, which already has been announced, is 26.800. the highest since last May and about double the monthly average of July to December, 1968. About 650.000 men became ineligible for a student deferment in June because they either graduate from undergraduate colleee. completed the first year of graduate school or received a graduate degree. Local draft boards are. just now getting caught up on their backlog of reclassifications. Draft deferments for most male graduate students were abolished last February under a policy recommended by the National Security Council and relayed to local draft boards DINNER AND COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAIL 2.75 Choice of delicious roast beef, seafood, or chicken.

While local boards continued to have discretion to grant deferments as they saw fit. Hershey's recommendations were generally followed. After the abolition of graduate deferments was announced, university officials predicted that their graduate classes would be decimated, that teaching assistant positions would be mostly filled by women, and that male students would be pulled from their courses in mid-term. In fact, such a situation has not materialized. At a meeting of education officials two weeks ago. Fred H. Harrington, president of the University of Wisconsin and president of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, said that less than 10 per cent of those admitted to graduate school for the 1968-69 school year had been drafted. However, draft calls were extremely low in the last half of 1968. averaging about 14.500 a month. They will average well over 25.000 a month for the first six months of 1969. officials believe. In addition, delay in reclassification of men who had student deferments last year has meant that the names of many eligible men had not reached the top of the draft list bv this fall. Thus, the university officials still see a grim road ahead. John F. Morse, director of federal relations for the American Council on Education, who has kept university officials posted on draft laws and regulations, said today: "We're still really worried.
