With the Cold War over, should the United States abolish the Selective Service System--the bureaucracy set up to administer the military draft? Congress has already gone halfway toward eliminating the agency. Last month, the House voted to slash the Selective Service System budget from $28.6 million to $5 million in fiscal 1994, leaving barely enough to maintain its files and computer programs.

The House on Wednesday endorsed a proposal to abolish the Selective Service System, an action that would jettison the draft-registration agency, an unnecessary remnant of the Cold War era, according to critics. The House voted, 232 to 187, against providing $24 million in annual funding for the agency, which continues to register young men for the military draft even though no one has been called to service since the Vietnam War.
