Deferment List
Youths Are Needed;
18-25 Year Olds To Be
Taken en Masse in April
By. The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 8.-Selective
Service headquarters, taking drastic
steps to hasten the delivery of young
men to the armed services, today
ordered postponement of the drafting
of all men 26 and over who are in
war-important jobs, even those al-
ready ordered to report for induction.
Draft Director Lewis B. Hershey
announced the action after being told
by the Army and Navy that they
want young men so badly they are
wlling for draft boards to fail to
deliver their quotas of older regis-
trants.
Induction en Masse Planned
Apparently the plan is to send
young men into the Army and Navy
almost en masse during April. In-
formed officials said it meant the
current government program of en-
dorsing deferments for certain key
men under 26 must be speeded up if
it is to be in time.
An official of the Office of . War
Information said a list will be pro-
vided in a day or two to guide draft
boards in the deferment of young
men. He said the list will be substan-
tially that to be provided by the
inter-agency committee headed by
Manpower Chairman Paul V. McNutt.
The postponement of older men
starts as soon as local boards can
stop their machinery and set up the
now system. This may be the middle
of next week in some localities, draft
officers said. A man scheduled to be
inducted Monday or Tuesday, for
example, will have no legal recourse

if his induction takes place on sched-
ule.
The delay will last until processing
of men under 26 has been "substan-
tially accomplished," Hershey said.
National Estimate Impossible
How long that will be depends on
conditions in each state, and officers
here said any national estimate was
impossible. In one state, Missouri,
draft authorities estimated the delay
will mean only about a 30-day draft
postponement for older men.
State directors were notified to
delay the processing of men who were
26 years old on or before last March
24 "who are making a contribution to
essential agricultural, war production,
or war-supporting activities."

LANSING, April 8.-(P)- Brig.-
Gen. Leroy Pearson, State Selective
Service Director, today ordered draft
boards throughout the state to make
effective immediately an order from
the national headquarters staying
the induction of most draft regis-
trants 26 years of age and over to fill
their quotas as well as possible from
the age bracket 18-to-25 inclusive.
He sent telegrams to all draft
boards which read:
"War and Navy Departments have
informed the Director of Selective
Service that the immediate need for
young men in the armed forces is

greater than the need to immediately
fill calls by inducting older men.
"Effective immediately, you are au-
thorized to postpone induction of and
sending for pre-induction examina-
tion men aged 26 and over who are
making a contribution to essential
agricultural or war production."
