Draft Boards to Consider Deferments WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 — (U.P.)—Local draft boards today were instructed to give “sympathetic regard” to all claims for deferment because of dependents and to decide all doubtful cases in favor of deferment. Occupation deferment, it said, “is left largely to the discretion of the local boards, the rules and regulations being very broad, but requiring that the determination in each case be based on the individual status of the registrant and that no deferment be by occupation or group.” In this connection, officials said that income from WPA jobs would be considered as stemming from “a business, occupation or employment” but that income from CCC or NYA job? would not be so considered. In other words, persons on WPA rolls could claim deferment for dependents but those on CCC and NYA rolls could not.

The gliders that Mr. Briegleb manufactures are unique in that they are the only ones made under an approved type certificate. It is necessary to obtain an approved type certificate from the Civil Aeronautics administration before an aircraft can be built for commercial use. The significance of manufacturing gliders and sailplanes commercially in this country is that it makes this type of aircraft available for pilot training and commercial use. Previously this type of aircraft could not be used for training or commercial flying because it didn't have the necessary approval. beware Freddy! Parrish, and John Smith.
