Announcement of the personnel
of the Haywood county rationing
committee to handle temporary
rationing of new farm machinery
until November 1, 1942, was made
today by Glenn, A. Boyd, chair
man of the county USD A War
Mr. Boyd, who also is chairman
of the county AAA committee, will
serve as chairman of the ration
ing body, and other members nam

Board are: Robert H. Boone, Route
1; and J. L. Westmoreland, Can
ton. Alternate members are: T.
C. Davis, Route 2. and A. J. Mc
Cracken, Route 2.
Responsibility for administer
ing the new farm machinery pro
gram was delegated to the Agri
culture Department by the OI'A,
he said.' Secretary of Agricul
ture Wickard named ; Fred S.
Wallace, chief of the AAA and
special war board assistant, to
handle the program nationally, and
directed state USDA war boards
to be responsible for rationing on
state levels. Secretary Wickard
also provided for setting up the
county rationing committees.
The order setting up the ra
tioning program that the chair
man of the county AAA commit
tee should be chairman of the ra
tioning committee, and that two
representative farmers should be
selected by the county USDA war
board to serve as regular members.
Naming of two alternates also was
provided in the order.
Chairman Boyd said that no
member of the committee may act
on his own application to purchase
new machinery, an application of
a member of his immediate fam
ily or other near relative, or that
his landlord, tenant, or other bus
iness associate. ;
No member of the rationing
committee may be a person en
gaged in the business of selling
new farm machinery and equip
Under the program, Chairman
Boyd said, one classification (Group

spreaders, grain drills, grain, ele
vators, hay balers, lime spreaders,
manure spreaders, . milk coolers,
milking machines, pickup balers,
potato diggers, shredders, and
tractors, including garden tractors.
A second classification (Group
B), includes items somewhat less
scarce which may be sold upon
certification by the farmer to the
dealer that it is required to meet
current agricultural needs. This
group includes most other types
of farm machinery.
The third classification (Group
C, includes smaller items which
may be sold without restrictions,
such as hoes, rakes, forks, scythes,
shovels, and all hand-operated and
one and two-horse farm machin
ery and equipment hot included in

production goals by repairing, or

replaced equipment and agree to
rent or let others use the new ma

that out of the first 1,000,000 men
examined for selective service 47,
552 were rejected because they had

in three months the 4,500,000-man

Staff General George C. Marshall
will have been realized.
"Basing estimates on rejections
among the first 1,000,000 men,
this means' that there will be a
total of 213,984 rejected syphilitics

19-year-old boys and married men
with dependent children and those
whose wives are incapable of earn

should a boy in college have to go
to take the place of a syphilitic
who can and ought to be inducted,
given treatment, put in a posi
tion within a short time where
he can carry on as a soldier and
ultimately cured? Why should
the father of dependent children
or the husband of a wife who is
not gainfully employed be used as
a shield for a syphilitic? Those
who are suffering with syphilis in
its primary or secondary stage are
not the victims of a degenerative
disease but one that can be cured.
"Why. then, should these selec

infect others in civilian life for
lack of control when, in my opinion,
they should be inducted, separated
if necessary and treated until cur

"For selective service officials
to continue to permit this condition

policy and a sad commentary on
the word 'selective' when we think
of drafting young men 18 and 19
years old, who ought to be in a
state of preparation for the duties
that will follow the war.
"We are told that even married
men with dependent children will
have to be drafted by the last
quarter of 1943. Would it not

many of whom, perhaps, would
rather go on suffering with syphilis
