Grahl, state selective service director, who disclosed Thursday that 25,000 lowans in the 18 to 25 age group hold agricultural deferments, expressed doubt that examination of them would be completed before spring farm work begins in late March or early April. Those holding agricultural deferments in that age bracket, according to a recent selective service directive, have been ordered to report for pre-induction physical examinations. The state director said he had been authorized by the war department to disclose that a total of 78,000 lowans held agricultural deferments. In addition, he said, a total o£ 53,000 Iowa registrants held other occupational, determents. Of this group, about 1,400 are under 26 years'of age, he said. The balk of. the' prt-Indaction examinations for the a gricnltura! - ly deferred youths In the 18-25 bracket will come in February, Grahl said. The men will be sent to Forf Leavenworth, Kan., Fort Snellingr, Minn., or Jefferson Barracks, Mo., for their examinations. To put a check on absenteeism and hold down · if ' possible job- changing and job-quitting, Grahl also said Thursday he would send a letter to all industrial firms requesting them to notify the local board concerned if any employe 18 through 37, leaves an essential job or is guilty of unreasonable absenteeism. Grahl declared these measures were necessary "to assure that everyone is carrying his full share in the prosecution of the war." At least 30 per cent of those registrants in the 18-25 agriculturally deferred, group will be rejected probably for physical reasons, Grahl estimated on the basis of past experience. The Tydings amendment, which would keep on the farm those who cannot be'replaced or whose departure would leave large sections of land uncultivated, will act to give some further deferments, he said. Eastern Star, Masons in joint Installation Manly--Mrs. Pearl Harbor was installed worthy matron of Heather Hill chapter O. E. S. at an open installation Wednesday .night in the Masonic temple.
