New Rulings For
Selective service registrants who
have been deferred by reason of
dependency only, but who wish to
volunteer to compete for selective
officer candidates must make ap
plications through the local board,
it has beeen pointed out this
week by General J. Van B. Metts,
All such volunteers must be
American citizens and be eligible
aside from their dependency claims,
for classification in Class 1-A. In
addition, the application to volun
teer and waive of dependency filed
with the local board must be signed
by the dependents over 18 years of
age, as well as by the registrant,
and any volunteer under 21 years
of age must obtain the written con
sent of his parents or guardians.
Volunteers who are found by
the army to be initially qualified,
will be inducted among quotas
sent to the army by their local
boards and given four months
training in the ranks to determ
ine if they are potential prospects
for commissions as second lieu
tenants. Any not recommended for an
officer candidate school at the end
of this training period may request
to be transferred to the enlisted
reserve which means that he will
return to civilian life and not be
subject to call for active service
unless registrants having similar
dependency claims are being call
ed. Those who fail to complete
the officer candidate course, or
who are not recommended for com
mission, likewise may request
transfer to the enlisted reserve, or
