2 - Koisurh County Advance " ' ' II, 1971 New Directive From State Selective Serv. DES MOES'ES - The State Director of Selective Service for Iowa, GlennR. Bowles, announced today that registrants in the 1971 First Priority Selection Group with Random Sequence Number 100 and below would be eligible for induction in January 1971 to fill the state's call for 338 men. He also stated that Random Sequence Number 100 is expected to remain the ceiling for several months. Bowles pointed out that the First Priority Selection Group for 1971 is made up of those young men who were born in 1951, received Lottery Numbers (RS.V) at the July 19 70 drawing, and are not deferred or exempt from service, and also those registrants born prior to 1951 who are under age 26 and who are classified into I-A, I-A-0 or 1-0 in 1971. He also stated that those men in the 1970 prime group who are available and whose numbers were "reached" but who were not issued induction orders in 1970 are members of the Extended Priority Selection Group, are eleigible for induction during the first three months of 1971, and will be called ahead of those men in the 1971 First Priority Selection Group. This Extended Priority Group is made up of registrants born between 1945 and 1950 (Lottery Year -1970) who have not reached their 26th birthday, were in Class I-A, I-A-0 or 1-0 on 31 December 1970 and whose . Random Sequence Number was "reached" - - that is, they have a Random Sequence Number which is the same or lower than the highest number called by their local board in 1970. The highest number reached in Iowa, in 1970, was Random Sequence Number 190. While no local board exceeded this Random Sequence Number in issuing induction orders to young men during 1970 some local boards did not "reach" that limit in meeting their calls.
