Trying to Serve in 1942
From the November 22, 2017, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1942, 75 Years Ago.
"After several attempts to enter some sort of war service, C.R. "Luke" McLagan, has given up and has returned to his home in Sycamore. In Chicago last week after learning certain details regarding a service he had been investigating for some weeks, declined to sign, nor did he take the examination.
"Since Pearl Harbor, he has offered his services to the government censorship bureau, attempting to enlist in the army intelligence service, tried to obtain office work and even volunteered in the draft. he now plans to turn his attention to ordering things."
