OPEN PROBE OF DRAFT POLICIES House Committee to Study Deferments Washington, (/P) -- Threatening legislation to ban all but physical deferments for men between 18 and 26, Chairman May (D-Ky.) Wednesday reopened the house military committee's investigation! of draft deferment policies. Announcing a meeting of a special sub-committee headed by Rep. Costello (D-CaL), May said the group was concerned about "the efforts of War Manpower Commissioner Paul McNutt and War Production Board Chairman Donald Nelson to persuade the president to bring about the deferment of non-fathers and the| induction of fathers." He referred to the report ma earlier this week by McNutt and Nelson to the president concerning the needs of essential industry (or deferment of skilled workers. "Apparently," said May in an interview, "the idea is to keep these young non-fathers in industry and put the older men, the fathers, into 'uniform." Induction of older fathers, he added, "is costing large sums o: money because of allotment and allowance payments, it is breaking up homes and many of the men thus inducted are not fit for active, strenuous military duty." "The army doesn't want these older men," he declared. Meanwhile, a new selective service order tannins occupational deferments for men under 26, with some significant exceptions, insured the drafting of more fathers, since it left local boards no Alexander--Petty Officers Gor- discretion in giving stays to men "MONTGOMERY, .WARD.

But the exceptions opened way for highly critical war industries to hold their young technicians. Telegrams sent to state drat headquarters specified that state directors "are expected to recommend the deferments of individual registrants under 26 years of age without v.'hose services the production requirements of critical industry cannot be met." War agency officials said they expected the next move would be the creation of machinery for the preparation of a "critical list" ol industries--presumably chosen by the war production board and the war m a n p o w e r commission-whose key workers could be spared by action of the state directors. The new draft order leaves untouched about half 3 million young farmers who are protected by the Tydings amendment to the selec tive service act providing for the deferment of men essential toj agriculture. I The war department was said tcJ look with disfavor, however, oru the large number of young men deferred on farms, in view of the army's need for use of those xinder 36 for combat replacements. Selective service reported that 502,ODO men under 2B were deferred in agriculture of whom 394,000 are in the 18-21 age group. Mr, Koosevelt indicated at his news conference Tuesday that under the new draft policy, some youths currently employed all making bullets and rifles would be more useful in the army or navy since production of these items now is being curtailed. On the other hand, those making landtag craft, one of the prime war programs at present, would be more essential in their jobs. First witness called by the Ma committee was Colonel Francis V Keesling.-Jr., legislative represen-l tative for the national selectivel service. I Keesling was expected to be asked to explain the entire deferment policy, the steps taken to obtain replacements for younger men deferred because of their occupation, and the extent to which prewar fathers are being inducted.
