ON WINE, DINE DANCE 200 in March. NationaLly, the April call is the same as March - 19,000. Director Caldwell also dis- closed that trade school, high school, and college seniors, with low random sequence num- bers will probably be called up for physical examinations prior to graduation. Caldwell stressed that they will not be re- classified, or inducted unUl they have graduated. However, he said this new plan would per- mit Selective Service to screen out those physically unfit, so that registrants qualified for service may be called imme- diately upon graduation. He said also that other de- ferred registrants, whose de= ferments are nearing termina- tion, can expect early physical examination calls. However, they will not be inducted until their deferments have expired. Stressing that to continue to fill calls without getting regis- trants with higher numbers, graduating seniors with low random sequence numbers may anticipate prompt reclassifica- tion to l-A, and speedy induc- tion, Caldwell urged high school seniors planning to continue their education in college to notify their local boards promptly when accepted by a college or university. This will enable them to avoid reclassi- fication into I-A. The April call will include those with relatively low random sequence numbers, and registrants who had been tem- porarily postponed and whose postponements have expired. In order to fill Alabama's April need for 391 men, Cald- well said G65 registrants will be called to the AFEES. This will be required because many of those reporting will fail the final entrance examination, while others will have enlisted in some branch of serviceprior to induction. Some married men will be included in the April call, which will be made up of registrants 19 years of age and older, in Classes I-A and I-A-O, examined and accept- able. All 19,000 will go to the Army.. Covington County wiLl furnish 10 draftees, Butler 4, Coffee 3, Conecuh 2, Crenshaw 5, and Geneva 3.
