Abstract : This study examines the difference between the Selective Service System'S (SSS) Concept of Alternative Service and those espoused by the Mennonite Church, the most articulate opponent of current Administration Planning for Alternative Service. The study explores the views held by the SSS and Mennonite Church and attempts to determine viable options which would satisfy the concern of both parties for a fair and equitable Alternative Service Program. The study concludes with a series of recommendations for the establishment and operation of a feasible Alternative Service Program for the Mennonite Church. (Author)
