TO FEDERAL COURT
H. P. McAllister Asks K. C.
Judge to Revoke Decision
of District Board.

Because Joplin Board Grant
ed, Then Refused Claim,
Local Man Protests.
The claim for exemption of Harri
son" P. MoAllIster was today taken
from .the hands of the draft officials
here when he asked in a writ of cer
tiorari that the district board de
cision be revoked. This will be one
of the few cases in the United States
where a drafted man has appealed to
the courts instead of carrying his
grievance to the president. The dis
trict and local board at Columbia are
asked to furnish their evidence upon!1' in Southeast Missouri is the situa-
which McAllister was denied exemp
tion. McAllister, who claimed exemption
because of a wife, was denied exemp
tion by the local board, and appealed
his case to the district board which
granted it. Then upon additional evi
dence the district board at Joplin re
voked its decision. It is this action
that McAllister objects to and he has
chosen the unusual plan of going to
court instead of taking his appeal in
the regular manner.
Eight men were certified back by
the District Board at Joplin Saturday,
and will go when the next call is
made. They are: Meivin Mooney,
