January Rejections in Draft 25 Per Cent Under December Des Moines, '(JP)--Array officials at Camp Dodge reported Wednesday that January rejections of prospective draftees were more than 25 per cent under December. The officials said the caliber of men examined since the pre-induction system was inaugurated Jan. 18 had shown marked improvement. They added that the upward trend in the physical and mental condition of draftees might be partly.due to the fact that deferment of youths 18 through ·! years of age because of war jobs no longer was as automatic as previously. Col. Ralph A. Lancaster, assistant state selective service director, said some of the improvement might also be due to the fact many Iowa youths were graduated from high school in January and were ordered up tor examination immediately. "We have been taking more fathers, too," Lancaster said ·'Fathers are healthier a= * group. Some of these pre-Pearl Harbor fathers are young men." Examinations at Camp Dodge have been proceeding at a fast pace since the pre-induction plan was initiated due to the efforts of selective service officials to build up a pool of acceptable registrants for the spring calls.
