‘We Could Go
All the Way’
A state-by-state survey of
spokesmen for the Selective Service
System last week revealed that a
large number of local draft boards
will probably induct most available
men regardless of their rank in the
recent draft lottery.
In a series of telephone inter
views, the directors of Selective
Service headquarters in 23 states
across the nation disclosed that they
may have to dip far down the
lottery list - perhaps into the
lower-third of the draw - to fulfill
their monthly local quotas.
At a number of state draft
headquarters, including those in
New York City and the metropolitan
area, Selective Service officials
said that they will be compelled to
draft all "vulnerable" men if the
draft calls for next year are as
high as the Pentagon has predicted.

Support of the Arts." Receiving
his bachelors and masters degree

Armstrong then attended Temple
University where he received a
doctorate in educational psychology.
Much of his experience, including
his military service has centered
around psychology, rehabilitation
programs and psychological testing.
He has also designed and patented
psychological testing devices.
"If the draft calls are as
high this year as they were through
out 1969, we'll take everybody who
is I-A, eligible, examined and
processed," Col. John Brokaw of the
New York State office estimated last
week. "There is a possibility that
we could go all the way."
Col. Joseph Avella of the New
Jersey office offered a similar view
of the draft. "If the calls for
'70 are as they were in '69, it is
very likely that everyone will be
called in our state," he said.
Most of the local draft direc
tors declined to predict exactly how
far their boards would reach down
Calif., French horn; Ned Gardner of
Eden, trumpet; Deborah Henry of
Monaca, Pa., oboe; Eric Maul of
Philadelphia, Pa., bassoon, and
Joseph Parrish of Miami, trombone.
This Friday's concert will be
the first time that the Martin
concerto and Rogers' Apparitions
have been performed in North Carolina.
Apparitions was the last work
composed by Rogers, who died last
summer. He was professor of com
position at Eastman School of Music
in Rochester, N.Y. Two of his
students were Dr. Louis Mennini,
Dean of the School of Music at the
School of the Arts, and Robert Ward,
President of the School of the Arts.
