FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1950 BLYTHEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NFWS Guard, Reserve Deferment Policy Is Outlined by U.S. Departments B.V MAX HALL •> WASHINGTON, Aug. 4. (A 1 )—The Army, Navy, and Air Force today began i new policy ol allowing reservists and National Guardsmen » little extra time Iti civilian clothes If they hold critical Jobs. Secretary of Johnson announced last night that the firmed services will be guided In this by a list of 48 "critical occupations," prepared by the Labor Department, ^nd a list ol 12 "essential activities" (industries), prepared by the Commerce Department. Thus the old tug-of-war between industry and the military for the country's manpower appears to have started over again, only five years after the end of World Wnr II. The selective service system, now rushing to supply 100.000 draftees In September and October, is not affected by the new policy. Selective service hod no part in last night's announcement, and today it didn't even want to talk about the lists gotten up by the Labor and Commerce Departments. But Judging by the last war. there trnv come prmter and Greater pressure on selective service — from manpower agencies of the government, from industrialists, from scientific societies, and from universities—to use those lists in its daily operations. Secretary Johnson made it clear that when reservists and National Guardsmen ore called to active duty and then deferred, they will be deferred only six months at a time, and the delay may be cut off at any time because of "overriding military considerations." No Guardsman or reservist will be deferred unices he is engaged in a "critical occupation necessary to a highly essential activity," and unless he cannot be satisfactorily re- nl^ced. t Either the man or his employer an apply for deferment, but not until lie has actually been called 'active duty. Pour National Guard divisions have recently been called. Members of these outfits now may apply for deferment if they wish. Incidentally, Draft Director Lewi:, B, Hershey told a reporter last night that each state will receive credit against its future monthly draft quotas for all National Guardsmen or reservists called to active duty and for all men who enlist. The Labor Department's list ol 48 "critical occupations" includes professional men like doctors, dentists, chemists, biologists, botanists physicists, ship masters, mathematicians, nine varieties of engineer and people who are teaching any of the critical occupation on the list. It also includes skilled trades like boilermakers, machinists, pattern- makers, tool and die makers, instrument repairmen, and foremen and apprentices in critical occupations. • f ~ The Commerce Department's Us of "essential activities" was ver 1 j^road, and "subject to revision; ^Yrom time to time." Here are som< samples of the 72 activities: Ordnance and accessories; foot and kindred products; tobacco man ufactures; printing, publishing ant Billed industries, excluding greetini cards; textile mill products, exclud Ing lace goods; fisheries; govern ment; bituminous coal and Hgnit mining; anthracite mining; radii broadcasting and television.
