WORK OF THE INDUCTION BOARDS  Already young men have registered for selective service, the drawings will soon occur, and the young men will be called by local draft boards previous to their call for attendance at induction stations. At each of these induction stations there is to be a board of medical examiners who will be responsible for determining whether or not young men will be actually assigned to camps and cantonments for training. During mobilization the usual flow of men will be from local selective service boards to induction stations for final examination and induction, then to reception centers for classification and other processing, then to the organizations, installations or replacement centers in which they are to serve.The induction station serves the same purpose as the recruiting station does in times of voluntary enlistment. Therefore recruiting stations, augmented as required, will be used as induction stations. Corps area
