New Draft Eligibles Besiege
Information Head with Queries

Fat, official questionnaire envelopes
from fast working draft boards are
streaming into Ann Arbor this week,
and the War Information Center in
Angell Hall is doing a big business.
Long queues of new draft eligibles,
spurred by imminency of the army to
make a quick decision, wait patiently
to talk to war informer Gerald L.
Poor; Grad, last week interviewed a
record number of 558 men.
"I just tell them the qualifications,
and almost everyone seems to find
something he's fit for," Poor, who
spends seven hours a day giving out
information, said yesterday. The day
before Thanksgiving he talked to 124
men, highest number since the War
Board founded the information center
January 30 in room 1009 Angell Hall.
Meteorology has drawn the most,

student queries this week according
to Poor, "But interest is pretty var-
ied," he added. "The Army Air Corps
Reserve seems to be a consistent ques-
tion bringer."
The only function of the informa-
tion center is to give out advice. Ac-
tual enlisting in the reserves is done
either through offices in room .1514
Rackham Building, or through head-
quarters in Detroit.
College students aren't the only
ones seeking information, Poor has
found. Townspeople, parents and high
school boys from Detroit interested,
All have appeared to search out
courses of action for themselves or
their sons. The information center is
open from 9 to 12 a.m. and from 1:30
to 5:30 p.m. on week days and from
9 to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
