Donald Rumsfeld OEO eases draft ruling tor VISTA United Press International WASHINGTON - The director of the Office of Economic Opportunity has told VISTA volunteers that he will support their efforts to get occupational draft deferments if they asked for the deferment before April 23. A letter from OEO director Donald Rumsfeld to VISTA volunteers announced that he had reversed a policy announced April 21 saying that he was asking the Selective Service system not to give the young antipoverty workers any occupational deferments. The earlier policy clashed only two days later with an executive order from President Nixon, abolishing occupational deferments, but saying that such deferments would be granted for those who held them or asked for them before April 23. Rumsfeld noted in his letter that there was a conflict between his earlier announced policy and the President's order. "It appears sensible to me to eliminate any confusion this could cause," he said. He also acknowledged that his decision to change his policy had been influenced by "the persuasive case made by volunteers and others that a more restrictive policy than the President's resulted in undesirable complications for individuals already in the draft appeal pipeline." One who protested Rumsfeld's earlier ruling was Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif., who wrote Nixon that the policy "went considerably beyond the position you announced." VISTA - Volunteers In Service To America—is a domestic Peace Corps that works in remote or depressed areas in the United States. Bureau director says U.S. guilty of female bias NEW YORK (AP) - Elizabeth Koontz, director of the U.S. Labor Department's Women's Bureau, said yesterday her bureau is well aware of discrimination against women because the U.S. government is one of those guilty of it. "Women train guys at the beginning level who shoot past them at the three-year level," Mrs. Koontz told an equal opportunity conference on the 50th anniversary of the bureau's founding. Mrs. Koontz said women are "counseled to go into routine jobs," face quota systems against them in graduate schools, and pay taxes to provide "scholarships that women don't get." Most women don't apply for high positions because they are conditioned against it, she said, and when they do, their applications "go t o the bottom of the file."
