THE ISSUE But the issue, he said, is 'whether the current trend toward executive usurpation of egislative; power is to continue unabated until we have arrived at a presidential form of government." In the hearing that followed, deputy Atty, Gen. Joseph T.

Ervin said he could find no such language in his copy of the Constitution and told Sneed: make the best possible defense--for a guilty client."

Counselor Ronnie Siek said she joined the center two years ago when "the war was still going on but demonstrations were already out of it. This was something constructive," "We had an impact in shaping people's attitude toward the war," she said. "Year by year the number of conscientious objector applications increased, 'so, obviously, -people's consciousness was raised." The draft counseling business died as low death.
