Army and Air Recruiters to Advise Men Sets Up Manpower Committee to Meet Military Needs With the new draft law now in effect since midnight Thursday requiring the registration of all men between ages 18-26, the local army and air force recruiting main station anounces it is ready to help and advise all who are between 17-26 and who are desirous of obtaining the plan best suited to them. The local recruiting office states that it is setting up a military manpower committee in. Mason City, Charles City " and Decorah the main purpose of which is to organize community support to meet military manpower needs. The national organizations which are behind this community relations program in co-operation with the U. S. army and U. S. air force recruiting service are the American Legion and its auxiliary, the Fraternal Order o Eagles, The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Kiwanis International, Lions and the U. S Junior Chamber of Commerce. The job of the military man power committee is to inform thi public on the role and responsi bilities of the peacetime army anc air force, and to acquaint the com munity with the nature and urg ency of service manpower re quirements. By marshalling com munity support for army and ai force needs and securing volun ary enlistments, fewer men will ave to be drafted, it was pointed ut. Voluntary Enlistments Lt. A. C. Early of the local recruiting office states that it is possible to procure enough volun- ary enlistments in the Mason City area without calling upon the draft board to fill its monthly luota if the community gives the month, no men will have to be drafted." To Set Up Boards The latest information is that 100 draft boards will be set up in Iowa compared to 120 during the war, he said. At present men who enlist for 3 years can pick their school and assignments before enlisting, it was stated. ocal recruiting office and the nilitary manpower committee be- ng formed, its whole-hearted cooperation. Xt. Early pointed out that at the present time the USAF aviation :areer plan enables a young man (before enlisting) to choose and qualify for the specialized school offering the training in which he is most interested. If he qualifies for the course of his choice, he is assured of being sent to that school after enlisting and completing basic training. It is the opinion of Lt. Early that by enlisting now and choosing their branch of service and school (and for veterans their theater) many men can jus about pick their place in the army instead of being drafted. The lieutenant pointed out some figures concerning the draft. "About 140,000 will have to register in Iowa," he said. •"At the present recruiting rate aboujt 250,000 will be drafted in the 48 states. That means about 5,000 men from Iowa will be drafted. Breaking it down by the month, that is a little over 400. Breaking it down still lower the local office in Mason City (which is the headquarters for 11 counties) looks at it this way: The local office has averaged 35 men a month for the past 6 months. They estimate with figures now available about 35 men a month will be drafted making a total ol 70 men a month. In other words if they can get 70 volunteers a Men wanting 2 years service go in unassigned but both are furloughed to the inactive reserve with 15,000,000 other World war II vets. Men waiting for the draft for 21 months will come into the army unassigned, and'upon completion have to spend 3 years in the active reserves, and youths 18 years old can volunteer for 1 year and escape the draft later, but will be required to spend 6 years in the active reserves. Active reserves means 48 drills a year with supervision, the recruiters point out. Workers Co-Operate North Adams, Mass., (U.R>—In- dependent union shoe workers of the Gale Shoe Co. voted to skip paid vacations this year so the company could buy new machinery and resume operations after a one week's suspension.
