Draft Bill Makes Doctors Subject to Special Calls
Final action is expected by the House this week on the draft bill. As passed by the Senate by an overwhelming 78 to 10 vote, the bill would require doctors and dentists, aged 18 through 44, to register and be subject to special calls. Medical men educated at government expense or those who were deferred during the war would be called first. The bill is aimed at bringing up the nation's peacetime forces to a record of 1,936,000 men. It would make most nonveterans, 19 through 25, subject to two years in the ranks. Men with dependents would be deferred. House leaders promised to bring the bill to a vote before the proposed June 19 adjournment.
