EICHENBERGER GETS RELEASE Dismissed When Board Makes Reclassification ALGONA--Ernest Edward Eichenberger of Lakota, who was charged with violation of the se- ective service act by reason of ailure to report for induction, has been reclassified by the Kossuth county local board into class 2-C, as a necessary agricultural work- This action was taken by the oard after consideration of the act that the brother, Lloyd, was nducted into the army on a regu- ar call from this board on Oct. 27, 1942, and that the only other irother, Bernard, had enlisted in he army air corps on Nov. 27 1942. The case of the United States igainst Ernest Eichenberger has herefore been dismissed by the United States district attorney for northern Iowa, T. E. Diamond, in accordance with an agreement ·cached at Sioux City between Jiamond, Col. Oliver P. Bennett, head of the legal section of state elective service headquarters, and ^ester L. Leases, chairman of the ocal board. Ernest Eichenberger had claimed hat he was a conscientious ob- ector and appealed to the district joard of appeal on that basis, and also on the grounds of being a necessary occupational worker. The appeal was denied after in- ·estigation by the Federal Bureau jf Investigation. Ernest, at a hear- ng before the board following his ailure to report for induction, tated he refused to bear arms ecause of his conscientious ob- ections, but that he was willing to ;o to a work camp for conscien- ious objectors. He was reported o the U. S. district attorney and ubsequeatly arrested on a federal varrant and released on bond awaiting trial. It is the province of the local oard to determine who shall be elected for service in the armed orces and who shall be retained in lis civilian occupation in order to urther war effort. Therefore the local board decided that with the acute shortage of manpower, the interests of the government would best be served by retaining Ernest on the farm rather than by having him confined or sent to a work camp.
