Questionnaires have already been mailed for the most part to men ' who registered un Feb. 1C in the third registration. Pointing out that the handling cf the occupational .questionnaires for men of the first and second registrations will be entirely separate from that of registrants of the third registration, National Headquarters' 1 said that the mailing would be from the Classification Record (Form 100) in each local board office and not from the List of Registrants (Form 3). This procedure is to be followed because many of the registrants of the first and second registrations have already been inducted or have enlisted in the armed forces, it _\vas said. Furthermore, National Headquarters pointed out, the local boards will add to the questionnaires when they are returned by the registrants the current local board classification of each registrant and whatever -information is available pertaining to his physical examination. When the occupational' questionnaires are returned to the local boards they will be checked for completeness , and accuracy and divided into various sections of which they are composed. One section will be sent to the Bureau of the Census, Washington, D. C., for the attention of the Population Division. Another section will be relayed to the proper United States Employment Office in the area in which the local board has puris- diction.
