Registrants Must Notify Board Os Change Os Address Registrants under the Selective Training and Service Act must notify their local boards of any change of ad dress or become liable to severe pen alties provided by the Act, Brig. Gen. Sion B. Hawkins, State Director of Selective Service, warned them today. Director Hawkins said he had been ! advised by National Selective Serviee I Headquarters that many cases of de j linquencies investigated by the De partment of Justice have been due to carelessness of registrants concerning their duty to report changes of ad dress, or ignorance of the law requir ing them to do so, s The Selective Service Act provides that any registrant who violates the law shall be liable to fine and impri sonment, the Director pointed out. This punishment, he also called to at tention, is specified as “by imprison ment for not more than fiye years of a fine of not more than 810.000 or by both such fine and imprisonment. It is the policy of the Selective System, Director Hawkins said and of the Department of Justice which |s charged with enforcement of the Act, to take action in those cases where there is willful intent to vio late the law. Nevertheless, he stressed investigation of borderline cases is taken up much valuable time of local boards and of Department of Justice agents which should be devoted to ur gent work for National Defense.
