(AP Wirephoto) In Illinois And Iowa Two Separate Appeals Token Supreme Court To Hear Claims Against Draft WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court agreed today to consider claims igree that the accelerated draft of Vietnam war protesters is in violation of the Constitution. Two separate appeals challenging the draft delinquency regulations will he heard next term. They were taken by the court over the opposition of the Justice Department. Among the claims to be considered by the court are that the draft is being used to punish dissidents from U.S. war policy and that it is being used to stifle freedom of speech and expression. Just a year ago the court upheld the 1965 federal law that made it a crime to burn or mutilate a draft card. However, last December the court struck a blow at Selective Service policy by ruling draft boards have no authority to order the induction of divinity students as a means of punishing them for objecting to this coun try's actions in Vietnam.

Hershey's draft policy because the students involved are the more typical sort--they are not in a special category such as divinity students and had deferments rather than exemptions. The appeals are from Timothy J. Breen, 21. of Westport, Conn., and David Earl Gutknecht, 22, of Gaylord. Minn. Breen gave his draft certificate to a Boston clergyman in November 1967 to protest the war. He was then an undergraduate student at the Berkeley School of Music in Boston. DECLARED DELINQUENT He was declared a delinquent in January 1968 ;md was reclassified 1-A. He sued to enjoin his induction. Gutknecht left his draft card on the steps of the federal building in Minneapolis during an antiwar protest in October 1967. He was declared a delinquenl two months later and ordered to report for induction. He refused .men who engage in "illegal ac- review ivity." The Justice Department, in response to the appeals, told the court it found no fault with the speeded-up induction of youths who do not have draft cards in their possession.
