They are from left, Kent Frazell, treasurer; Cindy Sears, secretary; Sally Troxel, president; Mike Shinn, vice president. (Register Photo) WASHINGTON (AP) - Selective Service created a new draft deferment classification today to enable the service to "do business with people likely to be drafted and. let the other people go about their business." Deputy Director Daniel J. Cronin said the new rules, expected to go into effect in December, establish a "IH" holding classification for most 18-year-olds and some men over 18 and abolish the old "lY" catchall category. The proposed rules also establish new procedures for draft board exemption and deferment hearings designed to enable a young man to make "a fair representation of his claim" without permitting protesters to clog up the system, draft officials said. The new draft law requires that the rules be published in the Federal Register 30 days before they go into effect to oermit comments or suggestions. Unless they ask for special cla.ssification, 18-year-olds will be put in the holding group until their lottery numbers are drav.n during the year they reach 19. If they have high numbers and are safe from the draft, they'll remain IH and save bother for both them and their draft boards. The lY classification is to be eUminated because it raised many .objections ^by lumping various draft-exempt men such as homosexuals, criminals and .borderl'ne physical cases into one category. .. In the future, men are to be classified lA-AO, meaning acceptance undetermined, or lA-RI, meaning their cases are being adjudicated. Temporary pftysical disqualifications, such as bone fractures, would put men in the lA-RI classification. The new hearing procedures permit a young man to appear with witnesses before his local board to press his claim for deferment or exemption. "Normally 15 minutes shall be deemed appropriate for this purpose," the rules say, and "not more than three witnesses can be presented." Cronin said draft boards may permit more time or witnesses but will be able to cut off any effort to disrupt their work by men presenting voluminous claims. Previously, applicants for ex emption or deferment could appear before their local boards but were not allowed witnesses. The new rules also will allow personal appearances before state or presidential boards but without witnesses. We don't have the time or the personnel to set up check lanes every day and catch all of the violators, but we are going to crack down even more than we have," Shepherd said. "Some parents don't realize it, biit they're as responsible as the child if he is caught driving in violation of restrictions on has license and tiiey're liable to bo arrested, and pro.secuted, too," he said. .Shepherd iK>intcd out un.icr Osawatomie is voiinj? on government switch OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (AP) - Osawatomie voters went to the polls today to decide whether to retain the present commission-manager form of city government or switch to a mayor-council structure. Under the present arrangement, in operation since 19(;3, three elected commissioners employ a full-time cil^ manager. The new proposal, put forward by 370 petitioners, calls for election of a mayor at large and two councilmen from each of the community's four wards. Lacy finds alarmism appalling TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Jack Lacy, Kansas^ Director of Eco-noniic Development, says the orderly process of managing pollution in Kansas is being hampered by exaggeration and emotion. Lacy, in a speech to the To-peka Kiwanis Chi,b Monday, said: "If we allow legislation to be passed that ds designed solely to protect the mass of humanity jammed into our metropolitan centers, you can expect such far-reaching laws to have their effect in every state, county, town and farm in the nation. "If the public continues its enchantment with the ecological alarmist who blame agriculture for the nation's pollution, then the public had better be ready to do without much of its high-quality low-cost food when the farmers' fertilizer and chemical tools are legislated away." Lacy said agriculture and business have progressed in Kansas "through a balance of natural environment and the technological environment and this balance must continaie if agri-business is to remain the basis of our future economic growth." Lacy said the price tag on water and air pollution control in America could be as high as $30 billion. what conditions a 14- or 15-year-old driver may operate a motor vehicle: To and from schcol hv the most direct route between tl � hours of 7 a. m. and 7 p. m.

Public supports court nominees WASHINGTON (AP) - Com-rnimiratiuns received by the Senate Judiciary Committee arc overwhelmingly in support of President Nixon's Supreme Court nominees, Lewis F. Powell Jr. and William II. Rehn-quist. The commitlee is to start its hearings Wednesday, and Rehn-quist, an assistant attorney general and former Phoenix lawyer, is expected to be questioned first. Less opposition has surfaced to the nomination of Powell, a millionaire Richmond, Va., lawyer and former president of the American Bar Association, than to Rehnquist. The ABA'S committee on the federal judiciary, which "has been investigating qualifications of both men, is expected to notify the Senate pan^-el of its position before the hearings start. Walter E. Craig of Phoenix, whom Powell succeeded - as president of the ABA, wrote the Senate committee that he could think of no two lawyers better quajigjjd to serve on the Su-preme^ourt than those Nixon selected. One of the letters strongly endorsing Rehnquist came from Herbert L. Ely, state ' Democratic chairman in Arizona and a lawyer who wrote he had been active in the civil rights movement there and had served as counsel for the Arizona branch of the American Civil Liberties Union. "If I were a senator, even given my own political biases, I would confu-m the President's nomination," Ely said in his Oct. 28 letter to Sen. James 0, Eastland, D-Miss., the committee chairman. "William Rehnquisl's superb intellect and competency cannot be legitimately questioned," Ely said. He also wrote, "I have absolutely no evidence to suggest that he is a bigot or a racist." � The principal issues raised by opponents of Rehnquist's nomination concern his positions on civil rights and civil liberties. Rep. P^ul N. McCloskey Jr., [JR-Calif., who^-has, indicated he-will oppose Nixon in the primaries as an antiwar candi> date, aisked to testify in behalf of Rehnquist. ' A petition sent to the committee urging the Arizona lawyer's confirmation was signed by all the judges on his state's Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. The governing board' of the Arizona Bar also strongly endorsed Rehnquist's nomhiatioh, as did Arizona.Gov. Jack Williams. I..ewis F. Powell Jr. William H.

(AP) - Dr. Karl Menninger charged Monday that the nation's system of city and county jails is a "heinous" creation which degrades a person-often before he is convicted of anything-and makes it impossible to rehabilitate. Dr. Menninger, chairman of the board of trustees of the Menninger Foundation in To-peka, made the remark in a news interview after the Committee on Penal Reform of the Kansas Association of Mental Health had presented him an inch-thick printed report describing conditions in Kansas' penal institutions. "Everybody says the jails have to go, they must go, but they don't go," Dr. Menninger said. "It's heathenism to treat people like that. Jails are so horrible, they're unbelievable." He said "the prison system is so much better the nation over than the jail system. There are other ways to take care of dangerous people-if they are dangerous. But you don't put them m jail. "They are already dis- organized people. You don't cure disorganized people by locking them up and beating them, and that's what happens in jails. "You wouldn't put animals in some of these jails that are maintained in some places." The report was presented by Mrs. Lynne Sieverling, Fairway, chairman of the penal reform committee, and Jerry Cole, Wichita, president of. the mental health association. The report made no evaluation of the Kansas system. Menninger said Kansas has done well in recent years to improve its corrections program but urged that the state "stop dragging its feet" and build the proposed correctional-vocational training center which has been on the drawing board several years. Menninger said Kansas "is way ahead of many states in the liberal attitude of its judges toward probation," . .but 'added that Kansas courts tend to hand out more severe penalties than those in other states when.they do sentence people to prison. He praised the Kansas Reception and Diagnostic ^Center in Topeka as a model for other states to copy, but chided the state for moving so slowly in building the correctional-vocational trainmg center. Mennmger would not blame Gov. Robert Docking for not putting more money mto the budget last year for the center! and for juvenile corrections fa-' cilities. He said if anyone were to blame it was Menninger himself for not doing a "better job of advising the governor." ' Menninger serves as a semiofficial adviser on penal matters to Dockiiig, but confessed he has not advised the governor for two years. x Mrs. Sieverling said anotheii;; study is being made by thc^ committee on the Lansing l^taf Prison, the state's jails and the court. , i The mental hf>aUh assockk^kN^ has^^ listed as its -^jm^' i;0||l Ithe 1972 legisiattv^ immediate ;i^,"itiiir funds to haild|i correistional,^ \;
