MARRIED MEN IN COUNTY
MAY BE CALLED SOON
In most instances each
local board in the state of
North Carolina has induc
ted into the Army married
men who have a wife but
no children. The above is
not true of the Yancey
County Local Board since
there has been so many
single men available. It
now seems thqt the mar
ried men who do not have
children must be inducted
into the Army along with
a few single men left in
the county.
It is the desire of Selec
tive Service that all coun
ties induct married men
with children beginning at
about the same date some
time in the future. Yancey
county is now being urged
to call for examination all
married men who do not
have children and also sin
gle men who have been de
ferred for some occupa
tional reason. A few sin
gle men and men with wiv
es and no children are yet
in War industries but it
seems will soon be replaced.
Single men and married
men as well who do not
have children who have
gone into war industries
recently at about the time
tligy were coming up for
consideration for a 1-A
classification, will not be
given a deferred classifi
cation but will be called
for Physical Examination.
