The organization was to have sponsored event which was originally set for Friday night February 20 at the Beaver Dam Elementary School. The nationally known Nashville group of singers will probably be in the county in April, Allen said. . . , ... ~.o:~.~:~,:.~o.,~ - . ~: "} "t I -- llJ II 12 I,; II IT I" "Oh, I don't know! .... I'll just retire and spend a little time in Florida." This was the reply of Mrs. Opal Duke when asked about her plans following the closing of the area Selective Service Office in Owensboro at the end of this month. Mrs. Duke, a resident of Hartford and executive secretary of Local Board No. 20, has been with the selective service system for more than 28 years. The state's 125 draft boards and 12 area offices will lock their doors on Feb. 28 when the 27-year-old service is terminated. "We don't do a lot around here now. We haven't had a registration since last April and most of the time is spent packing files and sending them to East Point, Ga. for storage," Mrs. Duke said. A native of Mayfield in Graves County, Mrs. Duke remained in the Hartford office for most of her 28 years. Her duties were altered in the early 1970's when she :starts spew Opal Duke Pinpoints Final Day @ ding three days in Hartford and two days in Central City. She was transferred to Owensboro in 1972 where she will be one of the 12 executive secretaries helping to end a chapter in American history. Despite discontinuance of the law requiring young men 18 years of age to register, Mrs. Duke still does a smattering of business in Owen- sboro's Federal Building. "A lot of boys just didn't get the message and still come in to register," she said. According to state selective service records, approximately 800,000 young men registered with the state's draft boards in the past 27 years. Col. Taylor L. Davidson, director of the state's Selective Service office, said 101,714 Kentuckians were in- dUcted in the armed services during the Cold War period and the Korean and Vietnam wars. Dec. 27, 1972 was the date the last Kentuckian was inducted into the military. Mrs. Duke does not take issue with The regular DQ Sundae comes different sizes.

You have mixed feelings about it. Sometimes you know boys didn't want to go, but you wonder what would happen if an emergency arose," she said. She hopes the records stored in Georgia will serve to handle any emergency that might come up. Approximately 28 employes will lose their jobs in Kentucky because of the government's action but two or three persons will remain on the payroll in Kentucky to staff the Reconciliation Service Program .... a program designed to find jobs for those individuals who were AWOL or evaded the draft, according to Davidson. Although Mrs. Duke is not overly concerned about going into retirement, she does foresee a lot of spare time. "You get used to working after 28 years and it will be difficult trying to find something to occupy time," she said. Mrs. Duke and Margaret Greer, the other employe in the Owensboro of- rice, are among the 28 affected who are eligible for retirement. While she won't be directly in- volved, Mrs. Duke said registration and Selective Service classification cards should be kept even after the end of the draft and registration. "There still is a Selective Servic- Law and there may be a time when they again will have to register."
