Men who are draft-exempt now may find themselves up at the front in an all-out emergency, according to information received from the Nevada Selective Service Board. New procedures to identify men who would be qualified for military serve in an emergency, but who are not accepted under current Armed Forces Standards, are now in effect. These men will no longer be placed in Class IV-F. Approximately 2,600 men are classified IV-F in Nevada as of June 30, 1960, out of 22,800 men classified by local boards since 1948.

Without so much as a stuttering “Th-th-that’s all folks,” the New Meadowdale 3 Theatres in Gardnerville has closed. The phone is disconnected, the marquee is empty and many Valley movie-goers will now have to travel across town to see the latest films.
