SOME OVER 38 ARE DRAFTED Exceptions to General Policies Explained Des Moines, (/P) --Many Iowa men over 38 years old, but all in certain special groups, now ' are being drafted, state selective headquarters said. The "over 38's" n o w b e i n g drafted are exceptions to the general army.rule that it will not accept any inductees over that age. The selective service act raakes all men between 18 and 45, inclusive, subject to the draft but the v.*ar department has ruled it will, generally speaking, not dralt or accept for induction anyone over 38. Col. Ralph A. Lancaster, assistant state director of selective service, explained, however, that "quite a number o£ 'over 38"s' are being taken" in 3 special groups. The largest group consists of men who either were once discharged from the army because of being past 38 or ivho were released from the army and placed in the enlisted reserve. Of the latter several are being reinducted, .Col. Lancaster said. Col. Lancaster added there have been several cases of men past 38 who were discharged to enter some particular type of work or to 'take up some particular job and who are no longer in that job nor in that type of work. "A few of these are being called up again and reinducted," the colonel-said, "but the instances arc rare." The Colonel declared that in such cases local boards apply through state headquarters to national headquarters for "a waiver of age" which, if granted, results in the man being reinducted. A 3rd group of possible reinduc- tions o£ men over 38 are those who fall into a definite clear cut "public morale" status, Col. Lancaster said. Those are men past 38 who are known to be working against the public morale, who refuse to cooperate in any war activity, he said. IN ENGLAND--Cpl. Michael II.
