Successor to the Free Lance, - Established 1887 . VOL. 37—No. 27 Temple student Defies Draft Ernest Kurkjian, 24-year-old Temple pre-theological student, doesn't want to be drafted, but he ought to study a little constitu ional law, according to Dr. John H. Ferguson, assistant professor of political science. Kurkjian is waiting to see what happens when someone violates the Selective Service Act. He claims that the law is unconstitu tional under the provisions of the 13th Amendment which provides that no "involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convinced, shall exist within the United States." Dr. Ferguson pointed out that in 1918 the Supreme Court handed down a decision in a similar case, testing the constitutionality of the World War I selective service act. In that case, Arver v. Uniied States, Chief Justice White held that military service is not an im position of involuntary servitude since military service is a citizen's duty. If Kurkjian desired to test the constitutionality of the present law, Dr. Ferguson explained, re sisting the law was certainly not the proper way to do it. Correct procedure would have been to get an injunction or restraining order from a court. In New York eight divinity stu dents and two Socialists are ap pearing before a grand jury for failing to register. Their claim is that registration for military serv ice is in opposition to the constitu tional provisions regarding relig ious and political freedom. Here also, a Supreme Court pre cedent has been established, al though it may not wholly govern the present case. In 1934 the Su preme Court ruled that it was not an abridgement of freedom of worship for the University of Cal ifornia to require military train ing of its students. 'Bomber' Dodges Nazis, Gets Here Persistence - may be a virtue, but with the animal husbandry depart ment it is an obsession. A certain "Cough Drop" Luton Hoo 679 had some sons. These were bred and exhibited •by the College and were Grand Champion wether lambs and pen of lambs at the International Live Stock ;Exposi tion, Chago, in 1939 And 1940. In addition, Cough Drop bad some daughters. As usual, that is where complications stepped in. Cough Drop came from:the Lady of Ludlow's Farms in Scotland. Because of the department's de sire to continue the line-breeding, the ideal mate for the daughters had to come from the old home town. After a bit of inter - -oceanic cor respondence, a Southdown yearl ing ram having the official alias of Luton Hoo 877 was'selected as the lucky bridegroom.

Watkins, College scheduling officer, and introduced to the All- College Cabinet which is consider ing the recent proposal to abolish 4 o'clocks. In his survey, Watkins found that approximately 4,660 hours or 932 curricula were open for these two class hours, but only 4,145 hours or 49 per cent have been scheduled at , 3 o'clock with 624 hours of 27 per cent at 4 o'clock. One interesting factor, revealed by Watkins, is that two and three hour laboratory periods were re sponsible for the highest percent age of late afternoon classes. Chemistry laboratory hours in terefere with 3 and 4 o'clock va cant periods more than any other curricula with 5 per cent defi ciency; other courses ranking from 2 to 3 per cent are home econom ics, physical education, mechani cal engineering, industrial engin eering, and botany. "However," Watkins explained, "it is a certainty that all Wed nesday and Friday 4 o'clocks will be abolished as an experiment in insuring committee and organiza tion groups to meet in the school day instead of at evening ses sions." Stars In Today's Grid Battle Tom Vargo, left, Penn State end, and Bill Hauserman, above, Lehigh guard and captain, are expected to star in today's footballs battle between the Engineers and the Lions at Bethlehem. State will be trying for its third straight vic tory. (For story, see column five.)

Niatt Weather— Fair, Rising Temperature PRICE FIVE CENTS Lehigh Selected To Start In Late Lineup Change By PAT NAGELBERG BETHLEHEM, Pa., Oct. 18 A gridiron rivalry which dates back to 1888 will be resumed in. Taylor Stadium tomorrow when Penn State will seek its third straight victory of the season. against a thrice-beaten Lehigh team. A play by play broadcast of the game will be made over KDKA by veteran announcers Claude Haring and Bill Sutherland. The kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. The contest will be the 21st in a series that started 52 years ago. State has triumphed on 12 occa sions, the Engineers have won seven, and a 7-7 deadlock was played in 1920. While the Lions are overwhelm ing favorites, Coach Bob Higgins is welding together the strongest possible lineup and will make only one change in the starting eleven that took the field against West Virgina last Saturday. On the eve of the game the Lion mentor has selected Bob "Sonny" Rice, sophomore left halfback and former Bethlehem High star, to replace Chuck Peters in the tail back spot where he will be given a chance to shine before his home town crowd. An outstanding player in practice sessions to date, Rice has seen little action in the first two games because he plays the same position as Pepper Petrella and Peters, the Lions' leading ball carriers. Petrella, with two touchdowns and 250 yards gained from scrim mage to his credit, as well as Peters are expected to enter the battle after itgets under way. In the fullback post for the sec ond straight Saturday will be chunky Earl "Sparky" Brown, 165 (Continued on Page Three) 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 Late News Bulletins 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 New York WPA workers charged' the Democratic party yesterday with intimidating the workers through ward "helpers" and the passing about of demo cratic literature. A representative from the Workers Alliance stated that the Hatch act is being violat ed and that the increase of the en rollment of WPA workers backs up his statement of Democratic intimidation. Washington The Democratic party has begun an open political campaign. President Roosevelt will make a series of five cam paign speeches using as an excuse for campaigning, "that Willkie has been making 'falsifications.'
