(AP)—A new paved driveway has been opened to the. gravesite of King Neptune, a 700- pound pig who brought home the bacon to Uncle Sam to the tune of $19 hnillion worth of World War II bonds. The red and white patriotic porker became nationally known in World War II as the war bond pig. King Neptune's bond selling career started in 1942 and ended in 1946. Don Lingle, who was a Navy petty officer, g?ve the pig its name. He offered it for sale at war bond rallies. The purchaser always returned the pig. Lingle toured Southern Illinois, selling and re-selling the animal. ' Requests for King Neptune's appearances in other parts of Illinois forced Lingle to turn him over to a sponsoring agency. After King Neptune's bond selling days ended his new sponsors prepared to send him on a one-way trip to the Chicago stockyards. But, Lingle intervened and regained possession of the animal. The king was rewarded with regal retirement, with a special trough and a private mudhole on a Union County farm. honors. In 1958 Lingle was told the pig's grave was in the path of a proposed highway and it had to be relocated. Lingle, an Anna businessman and a naval reserve chief personnel officer on duty at the naval reserve training center, Cape Girardeau, Mo., said the new driveway is the latest step to turn the grave of King Neptune into a memorial. He said future plans call for construction of a monument at the grave. Hagge, Mills Co-Favorites In Golf Meet Mich.

Chi. fly ELTON IV Hf WASHINGTON (API-Draftees today are brighter boys than those Inducted during World War It and Korea, the Pentagon's per- sonnei experts believe. Mental standards for Inductees were raised last May 1. But the trend toward more selectivity in Selective Service had been under way for several years, Soldiers have to be mentally sharper because the equipment they handle now is more complex. Since Korea, only the Army has used the draft. Asked how present draftees stack up against those of the past two wars, the Army said: "On the average, the quality of draftees today is better than World War II and Korea because the mental standards for induction are higher. Therefore, fewer lower mental category personnel can qualify for service. On the other hand, fewer high mental category personnel are being inducted today because of a smaller draft than in World War II and Korea." Physical standards have not changed. The_rejection rate on the basis of mental tests (which really mean how much native intelligence and ability to learn a man has) is higher now, partly because the military can be more selective in peacetime than in war. Moreover, deferments for those who qualify can be and are higher in peacetime. Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, director of Selective Service, estimates, for example, that about 300,000 are deferred now so they can go to college. But, in testifying before the House Armed Services Committee recently, Hershey hastened to say that "I don't want to claim that we are keeping these boys ( in college, because we couldn't induct them in any great numbers if they didn't go to college." Hershey's view seems substantiated by draft quota figures. Only 4,000 draftees were asked by the Army for each of the months of January and February, while the high point so far this year is the 12,000 monthly quota set for August and September. Army strength now totals about 970,000. The draft law was extended for another four years by the present Congress. How long will a draft system be needed? "It is our judgment," say the military manpower experts, "that the Selective Service System and the authority to induct will be required so long as the international situation remains substantially unchanged." There was a 15-month period in 1947-48 when the draft law lapsed, after the end of World War II and before the Communist threat began looming large. But sinct September 1950, a total of 2,845,. 450 will have been drafted when the September quota is filled. Stars Back To Serious Workouts EVANSTON, 111. (UPI) -The College Alj-Stars returned to serious, training today for their Aug. 2 clash with the Green Bay Packers, heartened by a clos* one-point loss in their first clash with a National Football League team. The Chicago Bears outscored the Collegians 13-12 in a scrimmage Thursday at the Bears' training camp at Renssaler, Ind. The winning point came on a conversion kick by Roger Le Clerc. The scrimmage was comprised of 144 offensive plays, equally-divided between the two teams. There were no kick-offs or punts. A pair of field goals by Bob Jencks of Miami of Ohio put the All-Stars in front in the second period. Jencks booted field goals from the 17 and 30 yard lines. Rudy pukich, quarterbacking for the Bears, flipped a pass to end Mike Ditka, who in turn la- teralled to Charley Bivins for an ll-yard touchdown run. Le Clerc missed the kick for the extra point, but succeeded in the fourth period after Bill Wade's 16-yard scoring pass to Ditka. Charley Mitchell took a pitchout from Sonny Gihbs, Texas Christian quarterback, and sprinted 14. yards for the All- Stars' touchdown on the last play of toe scrimmage.
