Being Considered WASHINGTON f AP i The Pentagon said Friday a draft of doctors is being considered for next year It said too many of this year's medical school uates are gambling they won't be called

specialty for example Then he enters into the service only if called and when his training is completed About medical school graduates each year usually en- ter into the pool but this year the figure is off 40 per cent or about 2.200 There is no immediate clue as to the size of a doctors draft if it is decided upon Rousselot will not make his decision until Jan 15 There are about 15.000 cal doctors now on duty in the armed services A doctor's minimum tour is two years with he Army rank nf captain Storm Is Too Far Away For Any Special Action Tropical Storm Dorothy is still loo far away
