Registrations are already being accelerated, and I doubt if it would be advantageous to add to the number of age classes solely in order that the small proportion of unemployed men among them might be called up. Unemployed men not in reserved occupations, and, in general, unemployed men in reserved occupations who have been unemployed for two months, may volunteer for the Forces.
