«, Most Young Americans Are Heeding Draft Call; Dodgers in Minority NEW YORK> Sept. 11. Am»rie»n men (AP) — the new th« overwhelm iiij There have been a few w«ll-ie- "OH spots in Uw draft here there over the nation. New Toi-k City is one of them. Chicago •omewhat less so. But on a national baste, a 28-city •urvey by 'the Associated Press ihows the younz men of 1WO are *ioing their duty a£ well and as quietly the young men of 1MO or the young men of 1917. That U not to say the Selective Service ayjtem'a hasty switch from peace to war has been smooth. It could hardly be. But neither has It shown any widespread bad morale, malingering, or organized resistance to America's stand In Korea. Some shocking figures on dratt delinquencies have been printed in recent weeks—mostly in the bl? cities, Some of these ha'v« reached the total of 30 per cent.,. ':. s -, If that meant what ! it^seeined, things would be in very bad shape Indeed. It-would amount K> a national sit-down strike that would fatally sabotage American power abroad and give the- enemy more than just aid and comfort. : New Yorkers Fail It's .true that in New York City 12.per cent of the men actually failed to - show up for one induction call—a very serious matter, especially for the men, It's also true that In Chicago and other big cities like Baltimore, St jis and Indianapolis from 15 to per cent have tailed to answer draft board letters or to show up for pre-lnduction physical examinations. Hut in contrast to this, (he induction delinquencies have been much less than one per cent Portland, Maine, and Portland, Or fan. . . in Tex»s and Colorado, in Kansas City and Milwaukee snd North Carolina. And in these states —and many others^—wilful delinquencies are almost at the vanish-' to Jail." in| point. . American More Away What the figures mean, dralt'of-" llcials ««em to agree, U simply that a. lot of young Americans In our quick-shifting population have just moved away and left no forwarding address. There are really two kinds 61 'draft delinquents," and possibly some of the scare writing hasn't taken this Into account. One is a fellow who for some reason or other doesn't set hli "great- ings" from the.draft board—or who forgets that physical exam. Maybe he'« on vacation, or at sea, or away working. Or he just forge'U the draft board should always have his right address, ' This .fellow Is'llabie to a $10,000 lint and five years in federal prison, but If the reason Is honest enough, draft boards often take ,« merciful view, Fellow Placed on 'Spot' The other lellow is in a tougher spot. He's already qualified by reporting and passing his exams—but he just doesn't show up on the morning ol his induction call. In this case — or in any other delinquency — the board turns the matter over to "wilful" usually the FBI and United Slates attorney, who play for keeps, In both cases, if a man. is delinquent, or thinks he is. draH, officials urge the fastest possible port to the draft board. Any way you look at it, the real dralt doger faces i hard life. in New York 'city the Selective Service director. Col. Candler Cobb has turned the names of his delinquents over to the FBI, "I think the normal Jury in the^e limes of trouble will tell these boys 'mercy' is just a word in the dictionary." he said. •'The judges will throw the, book at them. "And I don't think the Army Is going to be used as an alternative Jailed Director Now Denies He Is Communist v,NEW YORK. Sept. 11. m— Now in prison for refusing to tell a House committee whether he was a Communist, Hollywood Director Edward Dmytryk said yesterday he was not one. ,^,He said he had refused to lell this to the House On-American Activities Committee ai'a matter of principle. ;.

Hit refusal to answer rha committee's question, he said, was "because of i duly I thought I owed to-all Americans to preserve whit I believed a constitutional principle ef mbstance." He ,»ald h« had "not foregone that princlpl* now," but because of the Korean war, he felt had ,"an even greater duty" to "declare without equivocation where I stand towards my own country."
