They represent the latest contingent from Macon County. Among them are a small percentage from the third registration in February; and draft clerks said that future calls could contain the names of many more of this group. The men have orders to report to the I.T.S. station at 7 a.m. today. This group will not return after examination unless they fail to pass the physical examination.
