__ THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1942 WA'TIIEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Wait Until Final Acceptance To Settle Private Affairs, Compere Says Pointing out Unit the examination of registrants by local board physicians is merely a preliminary examination to eliminate the obviously unfit, Brig. Gen. E. L. Compere, state director of Selective Servcc. today warned registrants that they should await actual induction into the Army before making any final disposition of financial and personal affairs. "Every selectee," the director said, "must undergo iinal physical cx- aminaton at an Army reception center. The examination by local board physicians is merely perlimi- A Cordial Welcome Awaits You at The Beauty Bar One of the finest, most modern shops in Northeast Arkansas.

No selectee, therefore, should assume that be-1 cause he has passed the local board ; tests, or even because he has been ordered to an Army reception center for possible induction, that he will be accepted by the Army." Will Be Given Furloughs •Registrants who are inducted will be given ample time to return to their homes to adjust their personal affairs within a few days after induction, Director Compere stated, pointing out that a liberiiz- ed policy regardng furloughs for newly inducted registrants has been announced by the War Department He said: "Local boards have been instructed to attach to the delivery list for each group of prospective inductees the names of those for whom furloughs are recommended and the Selective Service System has been assured by the War Department that such furloughs will invariably bo granted if recommended by the local board." These furloughs for inducted registrants will begin not later than live clay after induction, the director said, and will not exceed ten days except that when an inductee lives at a considerable distance from the Army reception center, a leave up to fifteen days may be granted. Prevent Undue Hardship "This new Army policy should pervent any undue hardship to selectees who are inducted," Director Compere asserted. "In the past there were some cases of hardship under che present system of inducting forthwith selectees who pass their final physical examination at Army reception centers. iSpme men, expecting- induction, had made final disposition of their personal affairs and then were rejected. Others were considerably inconvenienced after induction while awaiting leave to adjust pressing personal matters. Now, every prospective induaee can be assured that if he requires reasonable time to return to his home to dispose of his personal affairs, leave will be granted to him within a few days after his induction." All local boards in Arkansas have been advised to give full publicity to the policy now in effect, the director said, and to inform their selectees not to release their possessions, or otherwise make final di-spoiton of financial and personal affairs, before final action is taknc by the Army Examining Board.
