No Big Changes Seen
In Selective Service
Col. F. C. Shep3rd, advisor to
UNC veterans, announced yester
day there have been no major
changes in Selective Service regu
lations for students eligible for
service in the armed forces.
1 According to the bulletin of
regulations issued Colonel Shep
ard,' these are the clasifications as
they stand now:
Class I-D, for students in the
KROTC and AFROTC who meet
the requirements for deferment.
They are considered "persons in
military" and not "students" in
the normal sense of the word;
Class I-S, for persons who have
never been deferred as students
in Class I-S;
Class II-S, for . students who
have completed more than one
year of residence work in an in
stitution of higher learning (2 se
mesters) and who meet the mini
mum requirements set up by the
Selective Service System.
The summer session, according
to the bulletin, does not count as
a portion of the four years to
which a student is entitled to de
ferment under regulatons. How
ever, the bulletin states, if a stu
dent is entitled to deferment for
the next school year, his defer
ment is valid through the summer
A student whose school year
ends in June said the bulletin,
should be sure to request defer
ment for the next year, and should
report to Colonel Shepard's of
fice to fill out the proper form, to
be sent to his local draft board.
This should be done before the
student leaves for summer vaca
tion, according to the Bulletin.
Colonel Shepard said the only
change in Selection Service law
pertains to graduate students who
must now be in the upper 25 per
cent o their class for the last un
dergraduate year or attain a score
of 80 on the Selective Service
College Qualification Test.

Officials turned him down because of the "political angle" but
finally an obliging officer let him in the end of the parade for a
part of its route. Meanwhile, many of McCurry's friends and their
