No Automatic Deferments For
Selective Service officials warned
this week that there will be nothing
“automatic” about deferments for
college and high school students un
der the new draft law.
The act has provisions for the de
ferment of high school students un
til they graduate or reach their 20th
birthday, and college students may
be deferred until the end of their
school year.
However, officials pointed out that
students must prove to their draft
boards that they fall within the
scope of the law’s deferment clauses.
Otherwise, they said, such regis
trants may find themselves in the
army instead of being deferred.
Meanwhile, 4,000 draft boards are
being set up throughout the nation
to administer the new law.
