Mungo to Refuse Military Service

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A plane circling overhead will drop forty thousand anti-draft leaflets on downtown Boston when Raymond A. Mungo, a first-year graduate student in English, refuses induction at 8 a.m. Wednesday at the Boston Army Base.

Mungo, former editor of the Boston University News, is one of three Harvard students who will refuse induction in the next few weeks. Rolf J. Kolden, a third-year graduate student in Government, is scheduled for induction on March 12, and Robert G. Shetterly '69 will expect to be called up in April.

The three were reclassified from II-S to I-A by their local draft boards after burning their draft cards at the rally last October 16. Kolden and Shetterly have appealed the reclassification, which may delay the date of their induction.

Gay Demonstration

Mungo told an informal meeting of suporters last night that the public image of draft resisters has been damaged by their negative attitude. He promised that the gaiety of the demonstration which will accompany his refusal would make it "a very 'yes' sort of thing."

The demonstration will include free breakfast, a live rock band, speeches, and balloons for the demonstrators.
