rare circumstance indeed that would cause him to pre- scribe most current pills Hertz said much early testing of the pill had been He blamed fear of the population explosion and drug industry pressure

to carry out cide He appealed for a neutral force to prevent it The sole motive behind determination to draw an iron curtain over Biafra and exclude international observers relief agencies journalists is to make sure that the ties they will certainly carry out in Biafra is unseen and ported in the world the former Biafran leader said from a secret hideout I the aiims of Nigeria are test that the contrary is the case would be her willingness to admit itarian agencies whom Gowon has now openly declared he will exclude Maj Gen Yakubu Gowon is Nigeria's leader also appealed for the world to help Biafrans whom he described as starving and ex- hausted after an unsuccessful fight for independence from Nigeria I implore the world to rise to this desperate need to mount all possible pressures on

eliminate draft ties After a specified date no er student entering college can claim a draft deferment on the basis of education However a sophomore ior or senior with an existing draft deferment when the new rules go into effect will be mitted to complete his under- graduate schooling This is the thinking of Penta- gon officials who have been shaping the Administration's proposals to do away with draft deferments in the student and parental ries Secretary of Defense Melvin R Laird said lasf weekend President Nixon wants to move in the direction so that all young people are treated ly and fairly Proposed measures to carry out this objective will be re- viewed by the National Security Council and laid before the ate Armed Services Committee next month with indications the administration will put them into effect as soon as possible Just when this will be is still uncertain Officials said young men ing occupational and parental deferments at the time the more stringent rules take hold will be allowed to retain them But as in the case of student deferments no new ones will be granted Unlike the student deferment which officials say will permit exceptions for dents there appears to be no prospect of any further ments for job or family reasons except where hardship might be involved Job deferments have been heavy in the field of teaching police and fire department work Authorities expect community needs can be filled adequately by former servicemen and no special deferments will be re- quired in these areas The same reasoning applies to hard skill jobs in the cal and technical fields it was said As Hie United States scales down its in nam and simultaneously re- duces the overall size of the armed forces fewer and fewer young men will be required for the draft The Pentagon expects the draft will take about young men this year a drop of from 1969 The level should go down even further in 1071 Some Pentagon experts be- lieve the virtual elimination of student deferments may help the flagging ROTC program with some students possibly enrolling as a hedge against the draft interrupting their schooling Authorities say provisions may be made for allowing young freshmen who enter col- lege before they are 19 to finish that first college year However they would then have to report for military service Laird has stressed the new system will keep draft ments in effect for medical and hardship reasons N E fl R C HIV E Q
