Draft Boards Must Be Notmed Of elm Standings Of Students Announcement was made thi week by officials of the Jefferson County Selective Service Board that colleges and universities have been asked to submit class standings to local boards when so requested by students enrolled for the school year now ending. The class standings should be in the Dr~t Board offices by July 1, and the Selective Service Boards are also to be notified of scorer for those students who took, or will take this week-end, the college qualification test. Mrs. Lyle Townsend, clerk of the Jefferson unty Selective Service Board, said Wednesday that as soon as possible after July 1, the board will re-open and consider anew, the classification of all registrants currently deferr ed as students who do not meet the criteria for student deferr- lent. Tlie absence of the Select- ive Service Form 109, the form which certifies class standing, or a passing test score, are both sufficient reasons for not grant. ing fu her student deferrment. Students who do not get this information to the Selective Board can be re-classifled and placed in a 1-A category, Mrs. Townsend stated Mostly sunny today highest to 90. Fair ~ cooler tonight low est 55 to 60. Friday m ly highest in upper 80's Outlook for Saturday warmer and more humid. CLOSED ON JULY 4th.
