plete their sixyear military ob igation in Reserve or Guard units These reservists escape he twoyear draft but are sub ect to further active duty if hey arc needed Officials who gave newsmen a jroad

retary of Defense Robert S Mc Namara authority to transfer reservists as he asked recruit ing of the new men would be unnecessary The officials emphasized that no emergency is in sight to re quire
