men will virtually mark time until

for this county being Allied by vol

Haywood's two selective draft
boards this ' week received formal
notice from Brigadier General J.
Van B. Metts, state director of
selective service, to the effect that
you have no quota in that you
have furnished many men in the
national guard, which credit re

Dr. Tom Stringfield, chairmen
of the local board, announced that
the questionnaires would go for

board have received their blanks.
The board will then begin to class
ify the men, to preparation for the
second draft after next July.
The chairman pointed out that
classifications will vary from time
to time, and that the law provides
for making changes. "A man with
