WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 2, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Army Enlistments Jump 75 Per Cent By RAY HENRY WASHINGTON (AP) — Army enlistments in the month since the Korean truce was signed have jumped 75 per cent above the average o£ the 12 months prior to the truce. \ An Army official who disclosed the enlistment figures said it was too early to tell whether the increase will continue. He tatd he couldn't comment on the reasons K for the increase. - The figures showed that 11,600 men enlisted between July 27—the date of the Korean truce—and Aug. 27. During the previous 12 months, Uie average enlistment was about 6,600. During the month prior to the Korean truce, about 9,000 men enlisted—2,600 fewer than in the month following the truce. The Army official said the length ot most of the enlistments since the truce was three years, the same length of enlistment before the truce. Whether the increase in enlistments will have any effect on draft calls is an open question. Defense Department officials have indicated, however, that enlistments will be watched closely in connection with draft quotas. Enlistment Limited The Army has been the sole service taking draftees for over a year. Draft calls recently have been running about 23,000 a month. A Marine Corps official said Marine enlistments have been running about normal since the Korean truce. He added, however, that the corps has been operating under an enlistment limitation. The quota for August was 6,000. Both the Air Force and the Navy also have been operating under an enlistment limitation. Both have had long lists of men ready to sign up. The Air Force quota has been around 3,500 a month since Ma 1 '. It has built up a large backlog of men waiting to enlist. It plans, however, to increase its quota gradually to about 10,000 a monlli by the end of the year. The Navy has been operating on a monthly quota of about 4,000 and has built up a 30,000 waiting list. Some men have been waiting as long as a year to enlist, with the average wait about ,«ix months.
