City ;" Fuss Looms; Draft Chief Cancels Talk PHILADELPHIA (AP) I-t. Gen. Lewis B. Her- shey, TJ. ,S.--Selective . Servr ' ice director, ' has, canceled a Saturday speech' in suburban St. Davids; because of the threat of ah anti-war demonstration. - Leaders of the proposed demonstration .,: , deplored Hershey's action and said he missed an opportunity open a "constructive dialog" with those who op posed his conduct. Hershey was to address the annual business meeting of the Valley Forge Council, Boy Scouts of America. He said 5t was the "first time" he had been forced to cancel a speech because of protesters. But he said, he had "a responsibility as a Bov Scout leader to see that scouting does not get involved in a controversy unrelated to it. He has, come under fire for suggesting draft boards classify any ann-war demonstrator as 1-A. The Philadelphia Anti-Draft Union said the demonstration would have in cluded some draft card burning. Selective Service registrants before they are actually ' in ducted, and, 2. That the student associa tion, because it is not direct ly affected by any actions of a drart board, has no stand ing to bring the case into court. The department said in a 29-page, paper' that, a 1967 amendment to . tne: selective i c e Act specifically emoves ' jurisdiction from the federal courts to review the classification and pro cessing of any draft regis trant before he receives an order to report for. induction. The department said the plamtills are trying-to. pre: vent use of. the .Selective Service laws "without show ing .that , they have-sustained or are"iri immediate danger 1 of sustaining some'' injury .to a legally protected right. It noted that any registrant who is . dissatisfied with his classification can cc-ntest the action before his local board, then before an appeal board, and finally to the president. And. the department acmea furthermore, under our sys tem of .government, the courts are not open to plain tiffs who set , themselves up as self-appointed champions of the public at large." ' Seville Room . . WONDERFUL STEAKS J Group Meeting Rooms For Pike Question Again Before City Council The Oklahoma City toll- road question is due for revi-i val - Tuesday when , - the ; city ' council receives for consideration an indenture for a turn pike trust. . ' Preparation of . the inden ture by the city legal depart ment 'was . o r d e r e d. . four 1 weeks ago by a 5-4 vote, with Mayor JNorick breaking a. tie. At that time, Rowe Cook, Ward 8, author of the resolu tion ordering drafting of the document, argued the action would not commit the coun cil to constructing road. He said the indenture would be valuable as a starting point for further discus-1 sions. Also docketed for Tues day's meeting is the report maoe oy tne council's h- nance committee favoring early submission of a one- cent increase in the city sales tax to the voters; Oklahoma Citv successful ly opposed the attempt made oy UKiahoma County com missioners to create a turn pike authority to build the proposed downtown toll road connection with Shields Blvd., and a southwest ex tension. A court decision blocking he county effort held 'the county could not buiW an ur ban tollroad without city's cooperation. Council opponents of the turnpike trust inde nture argue no action should be taken by the city until a report is made by a citizens' committee studying proposed capital improvements tor UKiahoma City. .Doubling of the present one-cent city sales tax has been proposed by City Manager Robert Oldland as a means of solving the city's continuing financial difficul ties.
