, May 1, 1968 Some Want to Change Draft Laws By WALTER R, MEARS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) The Se* lective Service System has withstood a proposed major overhaul, but now a team of senators favors a change to permit men challenging their draft status representation by an attorney. Nine senators, led by Sen. Edward V. Long, D-Mo., are sponsoring a bill that would guarantee potential draftees the right to be represented by counsel in any proceeding before a Selective Service board. Legal representation currently is ruled out. One argument for this: The draft system contends it would not be fair to the poor, who couldn't afford attorneys. Long's Judiciary subcommittee on administrative practice and procedure sees— in the Office of Economic Opportunity— a way around that objection. Earl Johnson, who heads the poverty agency's division of neighborhood legal services, is among witnesses slated to appear at a May 16 hearing on the draft-counsel measure. Johnson said in an interview his agency would attempt to provide counsel to youths facing the draft who could not afford It otherwise, should the bill be enacted. But Johnson said he has no idea what the possible caseload might be if the bill were enacted. "We don't have unlimited resources," he said. "If the load became too great we wouldn't be able to handle them all." Publicly, Selective Service is taking no formal position on the matter. But privately, officials there said it could create chaos for the draft boards. Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, the Selective Service director, is to testify on the measure and the bill's advocates expect him to oppose it. A form letter currently is sent to lawyers or draftees who ask why they can't have counsel before draft boards. The letter notes -that draft board members are generally without legal training. "Our efforts through the years," it continues, "have be en aimed at keeping the procedures so simple that it would not be necessary to have legal counsel at any hearing before the local board. "We have always been of the opinion that it would be unfair to the many who cannot afford to hire attorneys if the sons of other families were permitted to have their cases presented by legal counsel." However, the form letter adds, a government appeals agent is attached to each draft board, assigned to be "equally diligent" in protecting the rights of the government and the potential draftee. Sponsors of the bill question whether this kind of dual service is really possible. Furthermore, Sen. Long voices belief the Supreme Court would hold denial of counsel unconstitutional. Hunted to Extinction Bones of elephants, which vanished from North America about 10,000 years ago, are sometimes found with the spear or arrow points apparently used by prehistoric hunters "to kill them. Prehistoric Americans may have hunted the pachyderms to extinction, according to archeologists. HOPE (ARK) STAR, Printed ft Offset Economy-Minded Sergeant Awarded Television TelevMoto HEDNESftAY.

Bell spokesmen said the union was demanding 7.8 percent. Telephone installers, who set the pattern for wage hikes in the industry, averaged $3.27 per hour before the strike. The installers, employed by the Bell subsidiary Western Electric Co., are striking in about 40 states. Approximately 145,000 Bell System workers are striking in 16 states, and thousands of others are refusing to cross installers' picket lines in all 40 states. These workers average $2.79 per hour., Despite the industry's first na Eisenhower Suffered Heart Attack By RALPH DIGHTON Associated Press Writer MARCH AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.

One source said both sides agree taxes should be raised and spending should be cut, The only problem now, he added, is to draft the type of package that can win acceptance from both liberals and conservatives, Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler has continued liis private meetings with Chairman Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark,, of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. The latest was Tuesday. Committee Chairman George H. Mahon, D-Tex., said no agreement on spending cuts has yet been reached but, "I'm of the opinion we'll find a solution." He indicated this might take several weeks. He described the $6 billion in spending cuts already voted by the Senate as "unattainable and unacceptable" and said the slashes proposed by Mills are "deeper than the Committee on Appropriations will accept." Mills reportedly wants a $5 billion cut and the administration is insisting $4 billion is the maximum it can accept. The administration reportedly will go along with a 10-4-G formula- a $10 billion cut in appropriations requested for the next artery, the March Air Force Base Hospital said. It was his third heart attack since 1955. The bulletin issued late Tuesday was the first official word of his illness. It said "a general prognosis cannot be made at this timo." Although the bulletin did not specify when the attack occurred, it was assumed the retired five-star general was stricken Monday after playing golf in the morning. Until Tuesday his ailment was described as "chest pains." "He has had a good day with no chest pain," the hospital bulletin said. "Blood pressure has remained normal. He has no fever. He has been visited by Mrs. Eisenhower." An aide, asked if Eisenhower's condition could be described as a mild heart attack, said "that's right." The bulletin said the two-term president would remain at the base hospital for "several weeks," and then be transferred to Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington for convalescence. He and his wife, Mamie, earlier had planned to leave May 6 for their farm at Gettysburg, Pa, They have spent the winter as usual at their Eldorado Country Club home in Palm Desert, 40 miles south of March Air Base. Eisenhower was reported on a light, low-calorie, low-sodium diet. Two heart specialists were flown from Walter Reed Monday night, The hospital announced Tuesday that Eisenhower was resting comfortably and in "excellent spirits," save the government $15,695 this year. The sergeant is a native of Hope. He and his wife and son Ule live at 108 Patrick, Wolters Village, Mineral Wells, Tex. Many Hail Entry of Rockefeller Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) - Prominent Republicans across the nation have hailed Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller's entry into the presidential race but some expressed doubt that he will be able to overtake Richard M. Nixon. Some of those who commented on the New York governor's declaration Tuesday that he is a candidate for the nomination said his entry will lead to a healthful discussion of the issues. Those with reservations about Rockefeller's chances said that Nixon has been campaigning hard for the GOP nomination and has built up considerable convention delegate strength. Others brought up the question of what effect there might be on Gov. Ronald Reagan of California, whose status now is that of a home state favorite son candidate. Nixon, who lives in the same New York apartment house as Rockefeller, said his neighbor's active candidacy will "make for a more exciting convention and will result in a more meaningful discussion of the issues."
