The amendment by Sen. Sam J, Ervln Jr«, D-N,C», aimed at picket line violence, was adopted by a Senate Judiciary subcommittee last year but 1 later thrown out by the full committee. The civil rights bill would make It a federal crime to use .force or threats to interfere with . voting, jury service and other ' specifically protected rights, Ervin said he plans to call up 1 later another amendment, origi- ,,nally in the subcommittee bill, ' to prohibit labor unions from fining members who refuse to participate In a strike.

Hershey "merely expressed his personal opinion" when he wrote to local boards suggesting they might reclasslfy for prompt induction some antidraft and antiwar demonstrators. U.S. District Court Judge George L. Hart Jr. made the comment Thursday when he ruled against a move by the National student Association to have the delinquency provision of the Selective Service Act de» clared unconstitutional. In Selective Service Jargon, a person is "delinquent" when he no longer meets the qualifications for a certain draft classification. , Hershey's letter last October to the local boards took note of the increasing number of demonstrations. Such activities "when they become illegal, t)( have. produced^and will continue 1 to produce' "mi$h evidence that relates to the basis for classification," he said. The National Student Association contended the Hershey letter was treated by many local boards as an order rather than a comment. The suit attacked Hershey's letter on constitutional grounds, claiming it was a blow against freedom of speech because students feared that if they took part In demonstrations they would lose their deferments and be drafted.
