THE CASE FOR STUDENT
The cause of the draft-eligible
college student is the subject of
a public announcement by the
presidents of Macalester and St.
Thomas colleges, and Hamline
university, all in St. Paul.
Addressing the general public
ffnd local draft boards, Dr.
Charles J. Turck of Macalester,
the Rev. James Moynihan of St.
Thomas, and Dr. Charles Nelson
Pace of Hamline ask that college
students be given every deferment
consideration by selective service
Their joint statement follows
“The national committee of
education and defense secured
from the national headquarters of
the selective service system an
amendment, with the full effect
of law, providing for the post
ponement of induction for any
person for whom in the judgment
of the local board immediate in
duction would create an unusual
“While this amendment is elat
ed in general terms, it provides
the basis for preventing the in
terruption of a student’s educa
tion during a semester or college
“It has been ofticially inter
preted to include as a cause of
such hardship ... ‘to complete a
course of training or instruction.’
“President Roosevelt recently
said: ‘America will always need
men and women with college
training. Government and indus
4ry alike need skilled technicians
today . . .’
“We hope selective service
boards will be willing to grant
students the opportunity of com
pleting the semester’s work or
the year’s work on which they
“These students are not claim
ing exemption from selective ser
vice but merely a postponement
of a few months.
“In calling this matter to the
attention of the public and local
boards, we believe we are acting
for the best interests of the coun
try and in pursuance of a re
vest addressed to us by Dr.
Francis J. Brown of the sub-com
mittee on military affairs of the
national committee on education
The joint statement elicted a
prompt “no” answer from Brig.
Gen. J. E. Nelson, Minnesota se
lective service director, who said
that blanket deferment of college
students is not possible under the
selective service law.
"Deferments can be granted
only for students in those fields
in which there is a recognized
shortage, such as medicine.
“However, individual draft
boards will give every considera
tion for a stay of induction to
‘•'permit individual students to
complete a quarter or a semester
of school work.
