Monday Evening, June T7, MST. Presidential Order Removes Ready Reserve From Draft WASHINGTON (UP)—President Eisenhower signed an executive order Saturday which frees ready reserves from draft calls and relaxes rules governing hardship deferrals from military induction. The executive order, amending tin. selective service regulations, stemmed from a review by Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey. The order also cuts down the number of referrals to the Justice Department in conscientious objector cases, and deals with other technical changes in the Selective Service Act concerning registration and induction of aliens. White House Press Secretary James C. Hagerty read a statement by Hershey on the reasons behind the two most important rule changes dealing with the ready re- terves and the hardship cases. Hershey explained that Selective Service currently has a large pool of available draftees in class 1-A because of the small size of current induction calls by the armed forces. The order reads that those serving "satisfactorily as members of the ready reserves will be classified as not available for induction regardless of*heir age at the. time ttiey acquired membership. • Until now, such ready reserves could have been drafted although it would have been' unlikely. The hardship amendment says that men will be deferred ffom induction if .such induction would result in extreme hardship to persons dependent on them for support. Formerly, induction had to cause not only "extreme hardship" but "extreme privation" to entitle a person to a dependency deferment. Hagerty said the change will make it "somewhat less difficult to obtain dependence deferment." The change dealing with conscientious objectors requires that an appeal taken by a conscientious objector from his classification by a local board will be referred by a local appeal board to the Department of Justice only when the appeal Board has determined not to defer or exempt the objector from the draft. Most of the men in the ready reserves have served actively in the armed forces. They include many who already have served two-year hitches under the selective service system. They also include the so-called "six-month trainees." Those are youths, 18V4 to 26, who volunteer for six months of active duty and then go on standby status for 414 years.
