announced Wednesday This compares to ah average of 25 air force enlistees each day or thelast 10 days The nationwide rush of enlist ments has overloaded the Lack and air force base at San Antonio Tex which is the air forces only training center at present The ivercrowding has forced the cut iack in daily enlistments Two Exceptions Major Andre explained there re two exceptions to the quota Enlistments are unlimited for ny manwith twoyears of col ege training and for anyoneWith irior military service Thus college juniors and seniors will be able to enlist in the air orce if they prefer prior to re eiving preinduction draft no ices Once the college student re eived the preinductioh notice e cannot enlist Major Andre said all shipments of air force enlistees into the Des Moines air force recruiting statioh has been halted to regulate the processing of enlistees according to the new quota He added that contrary to an earlier statement there is no possibility of members of the air force being transferred into the infantry or other branches of the armed forces KM PostiMe New Major Andre saidsuch trans fers were possible during World war II when the air force was a part of the

defe department called Wednesday for an immediate start on drafting ot 460000 18yearolds to build up the armed forces Secretaryof Defense Marshall andMrs Anna M Rosenberg as sistant secretary outlined the pro posal to a senate armed in urging immedi ate enactment ot a universal mil itary service and training program making all physically fit olds liable for 27 months service Mrs Rosenberg said that unless the armed services can call on 18yearolds they will have to ask congress to let them draft young1 married meni Fathers New Exempt She said in that case fathers as well as husbands without chil dren might have to be called from the present 1926 age brackets are now exempt The proposal from the defense officials lined up in this manner 1 Enact long term legislation aimed at requiring training and service of all physically and mentally fit young men beginning at age 18 2 Until that program can be handled take the 18yearolds who are now nearest their 19th birthday Mrs Rosenberg estimated that 450000 18yearolds could be called in the 1st year under ent ceilings on the size of the armed forces She also estimated 1050000 young men would reach theage of 18 in the 12 months ending next July 1 and might be pos sible to grant one year defer ments to those who havenot at tained the age of 18 or S months at the time the pro posal became law President Asked if the program had the complete approval of President Truman Mrs Rosenberg said it did Marshall told the senators a system ot universal mLhtary service and training represents what I believe is the best way to meet our immediate need for en larged combat forces and at the same time to provide an enduring base for our military strength Marshall spoke generally in sup port of the plan and left it to Mrs Rosenberg to fill in the detaps Mrs Rosenberg said the pro gram would call for 27 months of iervice and training the service to on the same basis as any other member of the armed forces S39 a Month She said work out this way The 18yearolds would get 4 o 6 months of training drawing 30 a month for that period after which they would go into service at the same pay as other members of the forces Still under consideration Mrs Zosenberg said is how to make use of men rwho cannot pass min imum physical mental or moral equirements No specific plans have yet been made for this group she said but the president may announce measures for bringing young men in this class into the program Marshall former army chief of staff and former secretary of state was the 1st witness at what Chair man Lyndon of the subcommittee said would be an overall hearing on manpower problems Under the present draft law boys of 18 are required to register but they cannot be drafted until they reach age 19 Their service after induction is limited to 21 months The present draft law expires next July 9 The senate subcom mittee hearings are aimed at de veloping such questions as how long the law should be extended and with what changes For Combat Marshall said he felt 18 year olds should be called for actual service and combat The program proposes that young men reaching the age of 18 fulfill their obligation for the na tions defense by entering the armed forces for 27 months ot service and training Marshal said Immediately thereafter ttfcjy would enrott for a specified n a reserve component In his state of
