There was also a large supply of distilling equipment and supplies at this distillery. The distillery had a daily producing capacity of 35 gallons. Extensive chemical analyses of seized moonshine whiskey, Collins revealed, shows that about 90~ contains lead salts, a deadly poison. He said that due to the dirty, unhealthy con- ditions that this wiskey is made in, if consumed by an individual, it could very well be fatal.

Alabama's June Induction Quota State Director Hugh J. Cald- well, Jr., has announced an Ala- bama June induction call for 275 men. ',In order to reach this goal," Caldwell said, t,it will be nec- essary to call 495 men to the Armed Forces Entrance and Examining Station." Alabama's 495 selectees will go toward satisfying a June national call for 15,000 men-- the same as for May. June's call will include delinquents, those with relatively low random sequence numbers, and registrants who had been tem- porarily postponed, and whose postponements had expired. The over-call of 495 registrants to obtain 275 inductees is caused by the fact that many of those called will fail the final en- trance examination, or will have enlisted in a service branch prior to induction. Some married men will be included in the June call, Cald- well said, which is to be made up of registrants 19 years of II Caldwell Reports age and older, in Class I-A and I-A-O, examined and ac- ceptable. Caldwell also issued a re- minder that graduating college seniors this spring will receive no new occupational deferment from the draft unless the de- ferment was requested prior to April 23, 1970. President Nixon, on April 23, issued an executive order which permits no new occupational de- ferments unless the deferment is in the national interest and was made prior to April 23. This order will affect grad- uating seniors from entering teaching careers until theyhave completed their military obli- gations, Caldwell said. Covington County will furnish 6 draftees, Butler 0, Coffee 2, Conecuh 1, Crenshaw 4, and Ge- neva 8. Renew Your Subscription
