Increased Draft Calls Will Not Affect College Students Accelerated draft calls produced by the Berlin crisis will not affect students doing satisfactory work or incoming freshmen said Benjamin G. McGinnis, University coordinator of military affairs. McGinnis explained, "At the present time there is no indication that the draft will affect Kent students.
