Draft 2nd By J OE CONKLIN' LIFE Staff Wiiter Draft Information Center, a service very few students know about, has begun its second year wi& an expanded staff, -a new location and old objective. "Our objectives remain the same as last year," Father Roger Dunigan, St. Mary's Chapel - co-pastor and Draft Information Center director, said. "Our concern is not to make aecisions for anyone, but to help n«m of draft.agethink through ™ feelings and responsi- ouities as they make their own decisions." .The center, located at/St. wmj.s, next to Anspaca Hall, was wganized last year by the ?t Pastors Association. t^K6??e w*s done by the pas- ™£ hut this year 15-20 students, J* wen and women, have been ttalned as draft counselors. centr^5 t0 Fr- Pm&* to* «uter was organized because^ Also during the morning hours in Kalamazoo, the CMU cross country team (now 2-1 on the season after shutting out Ohio State University 15-47 last week) will run against powerful Western Michigan University while the Chip Club soccer squad tackles the WMU team.

A coffee hour for faculty, alumni and friends will follow th game in the foyer of Finch Fieldhouse. The final event of the day will be the CMU freshman football team's battle against the frosh of Northern Michigan.. center begins of service vV "me draft involves crucial decisions affecting the life and1 integrity of the individual. A draft counseling center is a community response to the needs of men who face conscription and need sympathetic counseling, and 1 expert advice." Fr. Dunigan explained that centers like this are helpful. "Contrary .to the often expressed opinion of Selective Service, draft boards are not necessarily, the best source of information on' the draft." He elaborated, citing two reasons. "For one reason clerks (at draft boards) are often overworked and may riot have the time to give information. For another reason, certain deferments, particularity those re* lating to conscientious objectors are ignored, apparently as a matter of policy." Continuing Fr. Dunigan said, "For these reasons and others, a nongovernment center for draft counseling is desirable. We hope to supply the information draft boards do not, by working within thg framework of. the draft." Fr. Dunigan added that for the most part draft information centers, have, met with.the approval of government officals. "Col. Arthur Holmes, state selective service director, said recently that centers like this are very helpful and useful." Ray Weber, draft counselor, commented on the success of the\ program saying "Last year we had mostly seniors come in but this year students from all classes have been in seeking advice." Weber said a major goal of the center this year is to extend the program to high schools in the area. "High school students need the counseling also," he said. - The center is open Monday ■' through Friday from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m* Phone numbersthat can be called at anytime are 772-1182 and 772-5055. i TUESDAY'S ELECTION was held Thursday, and aside from tentative Homecoming Queett selections, some student posts were not made public until today* after press time. "We had more people vote than ever before," said Elections Director Sandy Wiese in explaining the late ballot counting procedure. "We counted the Homecoming Queen ballots first, so the tentative winners could be announced Thursday night at the Queen's Dance. Balloting is set up in a hard way to quickly count the many different Program Board and Student Senate contest winners, so it just takes a long time physically to get everything counted/' she continued. All election results wHl be listed in Monday's LIFE, and are posted to the Student Government offices to ih@ U Center* • ■ 1 ,'
