Help, Hershey Says
BIG RAPIDS, Jan. 20.-(IP)---Clari-
fying a situation reported to be de-
veloping from protest of many Mich-
igan counties that they were unable
or unwilling to finance councils of
veterans' affairs as now arranged
under state administration, Gen.
Lewis B. Hershey, director of selec-
tive service, has advised Rep. Roy O.
Woodruff that while the federal gov-
ernment retained direction and re-
sponsibility for rendering aid to the
veterans, it was seeking the fullest
cooperation from state agencies in
meeting this obligation.
This information was disclosed to-
day by Arthur E. Anderson, editor of
the Big Rapids Pioneer, who had
previously written Woodruff as to the
attitude of several county councils.
In his letter to Rep. Woodruff,
Gen. Hershey said: "Under the selec-
tive training and service act of 1940
the director of selective service, has
the responsibility of rendering aid in
obtaining employment or re-employ-
ment in his old job for every veteran
who qualifies under provisions of the
"Under direction of Gen. Leroy
Pearson, state director of selective
service in Michigan, a state program
of veterans' assistance is being or-
ganized through all local boards."
