Army enlistments down

WASHINGTON (AP) – An unexpected drop in Army enlistments last month could herald trouble for Pentagon hopes of cutting the draft to as low as 150,000 men this year.

The Army said enlistments in May totaled 7,629.

Officials were unable to explain the drop, except to note a sharp upturn in antiwar demonstrations during May as a result of the U.S. drive into Cambodia.

Defense officials indicated they will pay close attention to the trend in enlistments this month and next – when the end of school traditionally brings more volunteers in hopes the situation rights itself.

Any deficit in enlistments is made up by increasing draft calls in future months.

The Pentagon on Thursday announced a July draft call of 15,000 young men for the Army.

Sources said this call would have been lower were it not for the unanticipated fall off in last month’s enlistments.

Golfers eye title in Callier low-ball

Golfers get back into the swing of things Saturday morning at Callier Springs Country Club when they tee off in a two-day low-ball tournament.

Entries in the 36-hole meet will be accepted up to 6 p.m. today and qualifying is not necessary, officials announced. Entry fee is $15 per team and merchandise will be awarded the first three teams in each flight.

The course has been open for practice all week and area amateurs took advantage of this to get their games in shape. This is the first tournament in the area since mid-May.

Most of the best players in the area are in the field, including Herbert Joyce and Reed Davis, who won this tournament last year.

Since teams did not have to qualify, there’ll be a mad scramble tomorrow for berths in the championship flight. Officials think it’ll take a sub-par score just to accomplish this.

In the meantime, entries begin coming in tomorrow for the Seventh Annual Herbert A. Kidd Memorial Golf Tournament, scheduled next weekend at the Kraftsman’s Club.

This is the only tournament in Northwest Georgia still open to both pros and amateurs. It officers a total jackpot of $3,000, with $2,000 earmarked for the club professionals.

A capacity field of 96 amateurs and 25-30 pros are expected.
