A. T. C. No general service men in Class 1 who registered under the first draft law (i. e., before September 12. 1918) are eliyible to induction into a collegiate unit of the S. A. T. C. but men already inducted into or called for active service may seek transfer through their commanding officer and the regular military channels. Such transfers, however, will be made only in rare and exceptional cases. 3. Boys under 18 years of age who have bet n admitted to college will be signed to the navy if they so desire. 9. Vocational units of the S. A. T.

Regis trants of the new draft ages who have had a grammar school course or its equivalent are eligible for induction into these units. Induction will ordi narily be sought, however, only through the local draft board of the registrant and not through the institution at which the unit is established. Meu seeking induction will be sent to voca tional units only so far as the require ments of the service permit. 10. As enlistments have been dis continued, it is only by voluntary in duction that a registrant may enter any branch of the army. All persons in Nevada seeking to en ter the Collegiate unit of the S. A.
