Army Intelligence Tests Show '
draftee is smarter than the ave
Tests covering about 130,000
traineers show that 47.13 per cent
are above normal intelligence,
whereas only 81 per cent of the
population in general falls into the
"above normal" group.
The Adjutant General's office,
which administers intelligence and
aptitude tests to selectees, an
nounced these findings and de
clared that "this extra complement
of intelligence" was helping the
draft troops to "learn faster and
It had been estimated at the
start of the Selective Service pro
gram last October that 7 per cent
would be in Intelligence Group I;
24 per cent in Group II; 38 per
cent in Group III; 24 per cent in
Group IV, and the remaining 7
per cent in Group V.
Instead, the intelligence grades
of trainees were found by army
tests to be: Group 1, 9.51 per cent;
Group II, 37.62 per cent; Group
III, 29,25 per cent; Group JV, 15.60
Thus 47.13 of the tested trainees
were above the normal Group III
rating, as compared with 31 per
cent of civilians; and only 23.62
per cent of the draftees were ' be

Dr. Reynolds Makes
Dr. Carl Reynolds, state health
officer broadened the campaign
against prostitution in defense
camp areas to include the entire
state during the past week.
Futhermore, he said, "we do not
propose simply to arrest prostitutes
and leave the higher-ups unmo
lested, but start with the
'madam' and close her doors. There
is not going to be any delay or
Hillw-dallvin about this matter."
Dr. Reynolds said a rederai law
will be invoked In the effort to
stamp out prostitution in military
Momn mil manpuvera areas, and
he culled on state and local law
enforcement agencies to co-operate
in the campaign elsewhere.
"So far as we are concerned, we
are going to see that every means
is invoked to rid North Carolina
of these women, a large percentage
of whom are infected with syphilis
and gonorrhea and constitute
a menace to health," Dr. Reynolds
The campaign, he stated, is aim
ed at itinerants as well as inmates
of bawdy houses.
When prostitutes are arrested
and convicted, Dr. Reynolds de
clared, "they will be held in cus
tody until they are cured. The law
gives us this right and we are go
ing to exercise it, and I dont
The state has provided a tem

convicted of prostitution.
