Letter from Caleb Foote to Allen H. Barr

Description

Little news other than the Selective Service continues to fumble along. Has decided not to continue with the Fellowship of Reconciliation; is thinking of going into adult education or psychology or child guidance. Copies a letter of resignation from the director of the Germfask CPS camp: "I have found the Selective Service treatment of men in this C.P.S. camp to be the reestablishment of slavery in our nation and the punishment of men whose conscience does not permit their participation in war. As a liberty-loving American citizen and ex-serviceman, I cannot take part in the administering of a system of unpaid, forced labor.
