WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 1951 (UP) - The Defense Department today ordered drafting of 80,000 men during April for assignment to the Army. This maintains the rate of induction which was started in January and ordered for February and March. The April call brings the total Army request on Selective Service to 530,000.
The Defense Department said the Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps do not plan to place draft calls for April. These services have met their needs with volunteers.
