More important than its wealth or technological know-how, though, the United States has a high general level of education which it can share with other countries, Figueres said. He suggested more exchange of students and professors between the United States and other nations. The United States must assume mpral leadership of the world, Figueres said. “More than being anti-Com-munist, America must be prodemocracy,” the former Costa Rican leader explained. “The very life of the United States has been saved two and possible three times in the past 50 years by the spread of education in this country. Only the high level of education of all the people enabled America to improvise armies virtually over night. I believe we are already winning thc third world war the same way.” When if became necessary in Costa Rica to fight for the constitution, Figueres said, it was an army organized from among that country’s small educated group which was victorious.

Form 110 ‘Tells All’ About Draft If you have any hopes of being eferred from the draft, wake up en that post card marked No-of Classification, Form No. 110 Ives. This little notification, not the Inous “greeting” is your most im-rtant mail arrival if you think deserve a deferment. If this _rd comes through, telling you that you’re 1-A, tihat’a the time to Don’t wait too long, you’re apt be just too late. Ii is possible to ask to appear re the board or to appeal di-y to your stat« appeal board, Avork fast. You have only 10 days after your classification card is mailed in either case. In case you want to argue your appeal in person before the board, simply write a letter within the 10-day period stating lhat you wish to appear and the board will set a date when you can talk it over with the members. • The board will then mail you another notice of classification and if it still says you’re 1-A, again act quickly and write Ute board stating that you wish to appeal. They will ship your letter and file to the state appeal board. If the state appeal board decides by unanimous vote that vou’re 1-A, all you can do is request the State or National Selective Service director to appeal the case further. But il even one member of the state appeal board votes in your favor and you re so fed up with appeals by this time that you want the Army to come and get you, the next step is to appeal to the presidential appeal board in Washington. You do this by writing your own board again, of course within 10 days, stating that you want to appeal to the presidential board. This board is your last hope—if if they say you’re 1-A, that's all brotiher. The law requires that you notify your board of any change of status, however slight, that might possibly change your classification. For those likely to be reclassified soon like 3-A’n with only one dependent and 4-A’s who flunked the mental exam this is particularly important. If, since you’ve been classified, you have acquired more dependence, send your board proof, suoh as a copy of your marriage certificate or your child's certificate. If you think your job is essential, whether it is in factory farm ,or office work, ask your boss to write the board telling the nature of your work. If you can be easily replaced, you don't rate an occupational deferment. It’s too late to apply for tiie college student exam, but if you want to continue a college course, you should see Mr. Evans in Uie registrar’s office in Owens Hall to have a letter sent to your board before August 20 telling your class standing.
