Officials of the board said re classification of the registrants was being made on orders received to day from State headquarters in Raleigh. The armed forces began the us'e at induction stations of a new se ries of tests designed to determine more accurately the educational and mental qualifications ol regis trants recently. Previous tests were least accurate in borderline cases, and some registrants placed in class 4-F prior to the new rul ing, by reason of their falling only slightly below the requirements then in effect, may now be found acceptable for military service if subjected to the new tests, it was pointed out. In order to make the review, the local board will study all informa tion bearing on the registrant’s educational or mental status for possible acceptance by the armed frees. If, as a result of the rleview, it appears that the registrant may now be qualified for military serv ice, the board will classify him as directed. If the registrant is classified into a class available for service, he will be forwarded for pre - induction physical examina tions. In the case where the local boards finds that the registrant is disqualified for military service after the review, he shall be re tained or placed in class *-F; pro vided that the board finds him to be regularly engaged in an ac tivity in support of national health, safety or interest, an activity war production or an agricultural occupation or endeavor essential to the war effort, he shall be re tained or placed in class 2-A, 2-B or 2-C.
