[Letter from T. N. Carswell to the State Director of Selective Service, Texas - March 30, 1944]

Description: A letter addressed to the State Director of Selective Service, Austin 17, Texas, from T. N. Carswell, CAS, Del Rio, Texas dated March 30, 1944. Carswell advises of the resignation of the chairman and another board member and of an insufficient number of induction or preinduction calls for the area. The clerk advised of her inability to get the board to classify and reclassify a sufficient number of men who could be called. Carswell explains that the board members operate ranches many miles outside of Del Rio and lambing season is on making it inconvenient for a special meeting. Their attitudes seemed to be all right but he advises, in his opinion, that there is no cooperation between the board and the clerk.
