1. DRAFT PLANS STATED. A registration certificate will be issued by the draft board to each registrant, which will be the number put into the lottery box when selections are made for service. Michigan has 724,000 men eligible for registration, according to the census bureau. Married men are not automatically exempt, contrary to a wide spread belief. Married men’s cases must be considered by the draft board and the number of dependents will be a factor. Regulations will be issued governing recent marriages, preformed after the president signed the bill at 3:08 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16.
