An authoritative source disclosed that enabling- legislation is being drafted by the war department. Congress may receive a formal request for passage Wednesday. Under present age limits, the selectee army is drawn from a pool of 8,000,000 men. Broadening- of age limits to IS and 44 would raise that number to 28,000,000. Congress, meanwhile, began action on legislation to permit retention of all soldiers and sailors in service for the duration of the war, and to eliminate restrictions on use of selectees and national guardsmen outside the western hemisphere. Swift Developments These were the developments that came less than 24 hours after congress'formally acknowledged a state of war with Japan: 1. The house, by unanimous vote, passed and sent to the White House a bill to permit the navy to retain all enlisted men for the duration. The senate approved this measure only Monday. 2. The house military affairs committee—and then the senate military affairs committee — approved identical bills to remove from the selective service act restrictions against use of selectees and guardsmen outside the western hemisphere or United States possessions. These measures also would permit retention of all land and naval forces, including selec- tees, until six months after the war ends, and wipe out the 30- month limitation on selectee service.
