1. Inquiries have been submitted to the P. M. G. with reference to deferred classifications of necessary employees or attendants at State Institutions. The enclosed statement from him in answer to an inquiry regarding necessary attendants at State Asylums states the law covering such cases.
2. With respect to claims for deferred classification of necessary employees at the State Prison, such cases are very clearly covered by Second 81, S. S. R. If the district board finds that this is a necessary institution (which is not open to question), the second question is, can the employee be replaced without serious loss or detriment to the effective operations of the Penitentiary. If the first question is answered in the affirmative, and the second in the negative, the registrant should be given deferred classification in Class II, Division (D) See Section 87, S. S. R., Rule 24.
3. The classification rules are now more liberal than formerly for the reason that with every man from 18 to 45 in draft age, it becomes necessary to defer a larger number of men who were engaged in necessary employments.
