INFORMATION TO REGISTER FOR SERVICE * - - Full Directions Given For Regis trants Under The Selective Service System EIGHT CONDITIONS ARE EXPLAINED BY BOARD By request, the “Democrat” pub lishes the following information for registrants under the Selective Ser vice Act as a public service: 1. Any person who is a delinquent under the Selective Service Act is subject to a fine or imprisonment. 2. Any person is a delinquent who fails to do any act required of him by the law within the allotted time. 3. Any person is a delinquent who fails to do any of the following: a. Return questionnaire properly filled out within the time limit enter ed on the face of the questionnaire. b. Inform the local board of any change of address. c. Report for physical examination as ordered. d. Appear before the Board as or dered. e. Appear for induction as ordered. 4. Special attention is called to the fact that it makes no difference un der the law that the registrant has not received the communication ad dressed to him if it has been sent to the address recorded with the Local Board according to the latter’s re cords. When the Local Board sends out questionnaires it gosts on its of fice door and at the Court House door a notice to registrants that question naires within certain numbers have been mailed. It is thereupon the duty of any registrant having a number to which the notice indicates a ques tionnaire has been sent to look out for it and if he does not receive it shortly to inquire of the local board for it and at the post office where he receives the mail in order that he may not be a delinquent. The same thing applies to notices for induction. The law presumes each registrant to know his number and places upon him the duty of receiving the com munication addressed to him. This is not generally understood, but is very important to registrants who desire to obey to law. 6. Any registrant or other person who wishes to discuss the classifica tion of a registrant should consult with the appeal agent, who is Mr. L. Paul Ewell, Pocomoke City, Mary land. Do not request a member of the Local Board to discuss the classi fication of any registrant as they are not permitted to discuss classifica tions except in meetings of the Board. 6. Any person who receives a ques tionnaire should seek the assistance of a member of the Advisory Board unless the registrant is absolutely sure he has filled out the question naire properly. Notaries Public and other officers authorized to adminis-, ter oaths are requested not to admin-1 ister the oath on any questionnaire unless the latter is properly filled out. Services of members of the Advisory Board are free and gladly given, as are those of officers administering oaths under the law. 7. Any person seeking information should apply to the main office of the Local Board at Snow Hill, or to the Appeal Agent, or any member of the Local Board or any member of the Advisory Board. 8. The Local Board is requesting local papers to publish weekly the num bers of those to whom questionnaires have been sent, in the hope of reduc ing the number of delinquents. Ex amine your local paper weekly to see if your questionnaire has been mailed or whether you have been mailed your notice of induction. If the paper says such communication has been mailed to you and you haven’t received it, then the law requires you to make inquiry. Mrs . M.
