Youths Who Have Reached 21 Since Oct. 16 To Be Recorded
Washtenaw county selective service boards Nos. 1 and 2, representing Ann Arbor and Washtenaw county, are prepared to register an estimated 900 men for possible army service tomorrow at the Ann Arbor armory and at the city hall in Ypsilanti.
Selective service board No. 1 will register an estimated 210 men who have reached the age of 21 since Oct. 16 of last year. Registration hours will be from 7 o'clock in the morning until 9 o'clock at night, and a staff of more than 20 volunteers has been called on to make registrations.
Board No. 2, representing the county, will register eligible men at both the armory and the Ypsilanti city hall.. Twelve persons have volunteered to assist in the Ann Arbor registration headquarters.
