WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 (ZD
National Selective Service offi
cials have asked their state di
rectors to submit some dralV.
information to national head
quarters before releasing it to the
press or the public.
This was disclosed tonight after
Col. Candler Cobb, New York
City Selective Service Director,
had said the army had ordered a
blackout on figures on inductions
and draft examinations "in the
interest of national safety."
The Defense Department said
it had issued no such order.
Draft officials here said their
request was based on a letter sent
by President Truman recently. In
it the Budget Bureau was asked
to restrict the release of govern
ment statistical information that
might endanger national security.
Mai. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey,
draft director, said tonight that as I
a result of this a letter was sent
to all state draft directors. They
were told to submit to national
draft headquarters any informa
tion, prior to public release, that
might be classed as "statistical"
and that might endanger security.
"The difficulty comes in defin
ing 'statistical'," General Hershey
Cobb said later in New York
he had spoken with "a high au
thority" in national headquarters
before announcing the' curb on
issuance of induction figures "and
He said he received "cohfirma
tion" of his -action.
