TWELVE EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1948 Phone 4600 for » WANT AD Taker DRAFTEES & VETERANS GUIDE By MAJOR THOMAS M. NIAL The best reason a lot of. draft registrants haven't receivede questionnaires, and won't for a long time maybe, is. the obvious one— the dope" you put down as answers on a questionnaire would become stale with the passage of time. So naturally local draft boards aren't going to sound out your facts and figures until they are pretty' sure that your number is coming up in the near future. Questionnaires were mailed out in September to single, non-veteran, Dlder-age-bracket registrants. A whole lot of them were mailed. Within the ten-day period . they xcrc returned. They are the questionnaires local Doards for the 'most part are still using as a basis for calling up men for the draft. When they begin to run out, new ones will be mailed out on, a continuing basis. So, if you are 19 or even 21 and haven't gotten yours yet, don't worry'.'about it. 'You'll get it in time. • . . , . Prom T. G., Jor.esboro, Ark.: : "My nephew died a few months ago. and the VA is just now determininR who the real beneficiary is. When the thing is settled and monthly payments start, will a lump sum. payment be made to. cover' the back payments from the death of my nephew to the time of settlement?" The VA says in all' probability it wall. Prom C.E.G., Mondovi, Wash.: "How does the 'VA figure out how much subsistence allowance to pay a veteran taking Institutional, on- the-farm training?" . , j The trainee fills out a form esti- j mating what his income, will be 1'ori the following year. VA takes that: figure and divides by 12, to get monthly average. It then'pays subsistence alowanccj on that basis,' keeping within the income ceilings of $210 a month CS270 if one dependent, $290 if two or more). The ceiling (a combination of earnings and allowance) cannot be exceeded. Then, at the end of the year, if your earnings. are higher than you thought they would be and if the allowances paid you, added to the earnings, exceed the month", y ceilings, you must' refund Ll'.c difference to the VA. This can be done quite painlessly over .the next 12-month period. From M. E., New Orleans: "I was given a dependency discharge from the Army at the tail end of the war. Does that mean I am ineligible to re-enlist? No. If the cause which got you the dependency discharge has been removed .you should'be able to ge: l;acV: into the Army. From D. E. T., La Crosse, Wis,: 'What chances are there for a man o be drafted who has i>een married .... April 17, 1948-" None, under the present law. From J. A. S., Lawrence, Mass,: "Does a 17-year-old have to get his parents' permission to join the Arn-.y?" Yes—Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. But cr.ce you hit 18 you can dp as you please. .
