Draft Again Into Action
Reception Lines Begin To Form Next Week; Fewer Deferments Authorised Now
Bv EDWARD E. BOMAR
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26.—(/Pl
Those presidential “greetings” are in the mails again.
Shut down for two months, the draft machinery is chugging back into action.
Reception center lines will begin to form next week. And by the end of September selective service is reasonably confident it will meet the army’s quota of 5,000 men in the 19-29 age group.
In June, while the whole future of the draft was up in the air, only 6.400 men were inducted. There were no teen agers among them. Congress finally compromised on that issue by exempting 18 year olds but spe-cifving those 19 were to be drafted.
Classifying 18-44 Men
During the July-August holiday when the war department
asked no inductions, local boards have been registering and classifying men between 18 and 44 under instructions from Maj. (Hen. Lewis B. Hershey, national director, to limit deferments to individuals in activities “indispensable” to the “national existence.”
Four new categories have just been added to the list of those entitled to “most serious consideration’ for occupational deferments. I hey are college and university teachers, home construction workers, critical production and transportation workers.
Previously local boards were authorized to consider deferments only for students in medicine, denistry, veterinary medicine and osteopathy, and for certain teachers and research workers in physical sciences and engineering.
Fathers, certain categories of veterans and essential agricultural workers are deferred by law*. Eighteen year olds must register but are not subject to induction until they reach 19.
For the present at least, the army says it wants no one over

ATLANTA. Aug. 26. — (Ah — A three-judge federal court upheld today Georgia’s county unit vote system of deciding Democratic primary elections and refused to invalidate nomination of Eugene Talmadge to a fourth term as governor.
The tribunal dismissed a suit of an Emory university professor and an Atlanta woman civic leader which sought to have the unit system declared void and the nomination of Talmadge cancelled.
The judges said it was their unanimous opinion that “an interlocutory injunction should be denied.”
The opinion said “these unit votes also appear in the electoral college in choosing a president, so that there have been presidents who did not receive a majority of the popular vote."
In the July 17 Democratic primary, Talmadge won the nomination under the unit vote system although he trailed James VE C armichael, backed by Governor Ellis Arnall, by about 14.000 votes in the statewide popular vote total.
Under the unit vote system, each county is allocated a designated number of unit votes front two to six. The candidate receiving the most popular votes rn a county receives its unit votes. There are 410 unit votes in the state and 206 are required to nominate.
In the suit, Dr. Cullen B. Gosnell of Emory and Mrs. Robert u e Turman, former president of the Atlanta League of Women voters, contended that the system violated the equal rights provision of the fourteenth amendment to the U. S. constitution.
They said a vote in a small county allotted two unit votes would have perhaps as much as IOO times the value as a vote in Fulton (Atlanta) county, arbitrarily pegged at six unit votes.
New Riots In Simla Today
Sir Ahmad Khan, Member Of New Indian Government, Stabbed Seven Timet
NEW DELHI. Aug. 26—UP)— The Hindustan Times, edited by Devadas Gandhi, hinted today at possible congress party reprisals against the Moslem league which it blamed for political violence.
Commenting on the stabbing of Sir Shafa’at Ahmad Khan, a non-league Moslem appointed to the congress-formed interim government for India, the Hindustan Times said “violence is a game at which two can play.”
Sir Shafa’at was reported re- ! covering today from seven stab wounds by two unknown assailants.
The Times editor's father. Mohandas K. Gandhi, writing in his weekly newspaper Harijan, declared “the way to Pakistan (an independent Moslem state demanded by the league) does not lie through senseless violence.”
A strict curfew continued in old Delhi where five were killed and 70 injured in bazaar riots Saturday night in a new outbreak of dissatisfaction by Moslems over formation of the new government. Another person was killed by Allahabad last night
The 53-year-old Sir Shaf’at was said by Simla police to have been attacked by two young men while walking home. five hours after his appointment to the new government had bern announced He had resigned from the Moslem league a few days ago, reported!\ because he refused to drop his title in accord with league policy. Until 1944 ho had been Indian high commissioner for South Africa.
(attle Jam 0. (. Market
Mortineou Soys No Mon Can Feed Highcost Groin To Low-Priced Livestock
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 26.— (A*)—Cattle and calves jammed the Oklahoma City livestock market today in a record breaking run totalling approximately 14,-
Of this number 12,000 were cattle. 2.500 hogs.
Bill Martineau. editor of the Livestock News, termed the run “a wave of farm liquidation a-head of OPA ceilings.”
The farmers. Martineua said. “are just calling the bluff of Paul Porter, OPA administrator.
Porter said they were going to put ceilings back to where they were on June 30. when no man could L ed highcost grain to low-priced livestock and were going to throw the book at the farmer.
“Porter said they were going to put 2,500 snoopers out on the farmers and so they’ve just decided to get out of the meat business utnil the government de cities t>» quit Irving to run ii ”
A W. Ll Has. manager of the National Livestock Commission company, said “We ll sell all the cattle that we can move, get killed and get sold before the OPA ceilings go into effect without penalty.
Then No Meat for Time
LAWTON. Aug. 26 bpi Cameron college officials announced th»‘ school is facing an acute housing shortage and needs at least 200 more rooms. All available space in dormitories already has been reserved.
GUYMON, Aug. 26.—(A*)— A three-day horse racing program will highlight the 16th annual Texas county and panhandle district free fair to be held here Sept. 17-20.
“Then we ll be without meat for a w bile. Those good rains will let some ranchers keep their cattle out on grass and wheat pasture during the winter, but we won t be seeing them after this flood.
A large percentage of the cattle were unfinished, indicating a run by stockmen to make sure of present high prices lather than to hold cattle and sell later at OPA ceilings.
Martineau estimated that if the prices revert to the June 30 levels, it will mean a rut in prices here from $21 a hundred now being paid for hogs to $14.55 and a slash of from $2.00 to $3.00 a
