The level has maintain it we Set at about nnn ,000 men for the army alone It is a good deal less than that to- e only congress de•^ , - - cided, to get it up to the 900 000 mark is to have selective service. It would be simple enough to take that 900,000 figure, subtract from it the strength of the present army (645,000 on Oct. 31) and Sa .V emust draft the Ql ^0 Clear number Junior Can't Be Computed But that's not so, because the all-important question mark, voluntary enlistments, cannot possibly be computed. Right now jobs are pretty easy to get and nobody has to go into the army to make a living. But suppose we had an economic setback in the next 3 ™? ntl ?s and jobs became just a little tougher to find. Even a minor ^cession could channel hundreds of civilians into the army as volunteers. For every one who enlisted one less would have to be drafted. Or figure that high-paying job, are going to be with us for a long time Figure that, as a result hardly anybody is interested in -he $75 a month army job Then the army would have to" reach its manpower level almost wholly by the draft. Monthly draft calls might go up to 40,000 or 50000 instead of 10,000 and 15,000. ' And if and when it does there will be an immediate reaction—a Jot of tne men who feel pretty sure they 11 get drafted will start enlisting on their own hook. _ You can see it is a very sensitive picture all the way around. Every little army announcement o'f monthly enlistmentjfigures providing for payments to former prisoners' of war?" It's still a' law, but congress didn't appropriate any money to carry it out. The next congress undoubtedly will do so. From F. E. A., Landover Hills, Md.: "Can an officer in the navy get a GI bill loan to build a house?" No, unless he has a discharge or separation papers issued after Sept. 17, 1940. From Mrs. A. K., Detroit: . Would the only son of a mother whose husband was killed in the last war be eligible for the draft?" There's nothing in the draft law to prevent his being drafted-just because his father was killed in (he war. However, he might obtain a depenlency deferment if the mother is fully dependent on him.
