essential industries physically and mentally unfit for service college BOTC students undesirables students studying for the ministry and other reasons the 347 figure is cut down considerably No Other Choice But now that the manpower shortage becomes more evident the board has no other choice but to take the college boys Dunn and Mrs Mitchell figure that the board will draft 61 of the 85 county boys now in college Those 61 plus the other 44 youths will just about clean out the countys roster for 1953 The Board has nothing to fall back on to pick up men for the draft Other Boards may have young men deferred for farm work essential industrial work or those who may be called back for an other physical examination f Dunn said that the Board has five youths classified as 2A and 2C the essential industry and agricultural division Meh in such classifications are deferred tem porarily They are subject draft call until they arc 35 Mrs Mitchell revealed that the Board has registered
