To Be Reclassified
WASHINGTON. Dec. 11 —<U.R) I
Selective service today notified
state draft directors that it will I
take "immediate action” to put in-
to effect James F. Byrnes' manpow- ]
In telegrams to stake of fleets. Ma-
jor General Lewis B. Hershey said
that draft regulations arc being
amended to provide that when oc-
cupationally deferred registrants
leave essential Jobs they will bo ,
‘‘reclassified into a class immediate- i
ly available for service.”
The only exception, he said, will
be in cases where local boards rule j
that a change of Jobs by men 26 I
through 37 years of age "is in the '
best interest of the war effort." I

ment Instructions in the light of
tlie immediate urgencies for men In
the armed forces and the civilian
war effort." Hershey said.
Manpower officials expressed con-
fidence that the tighter draft regu-
lations would "go a long way” to-
ward bolstering the war labor force.
To Reduce Turnover
Tlie most important result of
Byrnes' directive to increase the
number of men 27 through 37 years
old called to tlie armed services will
be to cut down appreciably the huge
labor turnover that has been a No
1 problem in fighting lagging war
production, they said.
WMC officials pointed out that
while under present selective serv-
ice regulations men of these ages
not in essential jobs are liable to
the draft, very few have been call-
ed for several months.
Tlie 27^37 year old men who face
reclassification will not be used
lor combat replacements since the
services prefer men under 26 for the
fighting fronts. They will, however,
replace skilled men in uniform who
have already been released or soon
will be released for essential work.
