Draft Registration In
Haywood Short Of Estimate
Today and tomorow will com
plete the scheduled registrations,
as the 18-year-old groups register
under the new draft laws.
After Saturday all persons be
coming 18 will register on the day
they become of age.
The registration in Haywood is
going to fall about 1,000 short of
the estimated quota of 3,200. The
state draft board estimated that
there would be about 3,2u0 young
men to register in Haywood, but
of i Tuesday, the nmiiher ws
only 1,702, and it was felt that 500
more would easily cover all addi
tional men to register by Saturday
It was understood yesterday that
Rufus Siler had been named as a
member of the board, who will fill
the place of Fred Campbell who re
signed several weeks ago.
The board members feel that
the registration here in Haywood
has gone off smoothly, and very
little time lost in getting the men
registered withfn few minutes.
