Acting in conjunction with the W;:r Department, National Head-quarters" of "the Selective 'Service £v.-;teirC, today annqun'cetd details of a plan to .transfer all: inductees, to the Enlisted : Resecve - Corps .hruneawtely'after'induction and to send them home at Government ("v^ense'-for' 'H days to adjust personal, affairs. The new arfari&emenfcf"replaces the present sysiem or granting in- r:<iclec.s ten day furloughs upon r: ! '!uest and is .expected to : eliminate ;uiy injustice '-which mijrht'.' occur - o men inducted immediately i'ol- lov.'ing- physical _. ^examlnatUm { by ihf Army, .NatiouaL-'Headquarters ' ' Although-every attempt has been made to grant' 10 day furloughs upon request, National Hc.idquart- ers said that in some instances, such requests had been denied and that, in' addition, in othe.: cases inductees were unable to priy their transportation to return home. A.S the new system calls for the immediate release of all men who wish to go home and payment of the costs of their travel fcy the Army, National Headquart ivs .said that there would be no rerirori for discrimination against any inductee. Issues Memorandum tion by the local board, or for the return of rejected men to the local board area from the induction station. Inducted men who do not desire to return to their homes will be forwarded, direct from the induction station to the Reception Center. May Return Home "In the case of inducted men who do desire to return to their homes the following procedure will be followed at the induction station: "(i\) The inducted man will be transferred immediately to the Enlisted Reserve Corps and will be In its memorandum to State given an order to proceed to the Directors, National Headquarters j city in which his local board is said: KILL FLICS "The present policy of ' granting furloughs to, inducted me in will be discontinued on June 15.' 1942. or as .soon thereafter as arrangements can be made by conference between the State Director and the Corps Area Commander. The new procedure will provide that every inducted man will be released from active service at the induction station for a period of approximately fourteen day.s unless he prefer.", to proceed directly to the Reception Center. This will be accomplished by transferring'the inducted man to the Enlisted Reserve Corps immediately following his induction and issuing orders located. 11 (b> At the same time an order will be issued recalling him to active .service on a certain date and ordering him to proceed on that date from the city in which the local board is located to a designated Reception Center for duty, The normal period between transfer to the Enlisted Reserve Corps and recall to active service will be fourteen days. This period may be extended or shortened by not to exceed two day in order to meet processing schedules at Reception Centers, or to prevent Sunday travel." Discussing the elimination of injustices, National Headquarters recalling him to active service isaid: at the end of the 14 day period. | "Many of the disadvantages of 'The Army-will furnhih transportation, meals aaul lodging of such reservist en route to the <jity in which the local board is located and from- that point to the reception center. "There will be no change in the .-present procedure for delivery of the present system will be eliminated in the new procedure. Every man who wishes to return to his home will be given the opportunity to do so without being required io establish his reasons for returning, investigation and recommendation by the local board Ls no longer registrants to the induction sin- necessary. Reservists are released from active service at the induction station instead of the Reception Center. . They travel at Government expense' in local board groups under an appointed leader. Farewell Ceremonies "Farewell cere monies may be arranged at the time the group departs for the Reception Center, since all of the men in such groups have been accepted for military service and ordered to active duty. None will be faced with the embarassment of returning home following such ceremonies." With regard to these "going away" ceremonies National Headquarters said that under- the new procedure chairmen of local boards will receive meal tickets and transportation requests for the travel of reservists who are to return to the Reception Center and will turn these transportation requeses and tickets over to the Acting Corporal designated for each returning group. Then, -as the reservists will leave for the Reception Center in a grouu at the completion of their fourteen day period of inactive service, local communities may then conduct departure ceremonies with a definite knowledge that the men are going into active? .service Ceremonies for registrants en route to induction stations for physical examinations should be eliminated National Headquarters said. Another feature of the present system which will be eliminated by the new procedure, Nationa Headquarters said, will be the possible delay which may occur between the time a man is inductee and the time he is granted furlough. Under Die new procedure the transfer to the Enlisted Reserve corps will occur on the same ay that the man is inducted and here is no likelihood that he will ave to wait two to five days be- ore he can return to his home s sometimes happens under the resent system. Local Boards will cooperate with he armed forces in every possible 'ay by providing a place of as- »mbly for the departing reservists, y arranging transportation facili- ies and by taking care of other iccessary details such as advising he commanding officer of the re- eplion center of the route and ime of departure of groups of eservists and the number of men n contingents, National Headquarters said.
