Draft Status

[Memorial Hall I.U. – 7/27/62 – Handwritten by David]

Dear David:

I thought you might like this card. I asked Al and he said there would be time to see about whether you need a ticket when you get back from I.U. I haven’t asked the Draft Board about your status. You can do that when you get back. (or maybe I will inquire tomorrow – I am getting ready to go to Lafayette now). I told George Dye you would take the class from August 12. He said he was glad. Dad got the incinerator built yesterday (with my assistance). He had built a form and poured cement into it. It should last for a while and it looks like it is large enough to take care of our needs. The men are working on the office and the front looks like an entirely new building. They had the outside just about finished. They are going to tear out the waiting room partition today I think. It will be a mess for a while, but we will just have to put up with it. I think the worst will be over before I have to work for Arvella (I hope). I am leaving town at 9:30 and it is 9 now, so must get along.

Love Mother

    Must have been my original draft card, which I still have somewhere. The second sentence, about needing a ticket, must be about another topic.
