Draft Vet Retires
After a quarter century on the Russell County draft board and many thousands of draftees, H.B. Hamner still feels that the selective service system is “the fairest that can be had.” Hamner, 4204 Summerville Road, retired January 1 from the draft board after serving since September of 1942. He was chairman of the board for 14 of those years. At the same time, until 1962, he was also superintendent of Russell County Schools, a post he had held since 1920.
