Draft Board Tells Of Farmer's Threats 

Threats of violence against members of the Ann Arbor Selective Service Board reportedly made a man whose son is scheduled for induction into the armed services next month are under investigation by local police agencies.

Command officers at the Ann Arbor Police Department, the Sheriff’s Department and the local office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been notified of the reported threats.

The Scio Township man involved obtained names of persons serving on the local draft board and contacted them recently, a police spokesman said. The man reportedly told draft board members he was loading a gun with “live” ammunition and that “there would be bloodshed” if his son is drafted.

Officers said the man is a farmer and has said he needs his son’s help on the farm.
