Failure to familiarize themselves with the terms of the draft law applying to army desertions is leading peace officers to make many arrests where the men arrested are not really deserters, according to the announcement today at Camp Travis. A number of men have been brought to the camp by peace officers, who were later released, as they were not deserters. Maj. E. C. McNeil, division inspector said yesterday that that the local boards in many instances were not familiar with the law and in some instances were responsible for these arrests.
