All the brothers were gathered in the basement of the Sigma Nu house for the drawing. There were moans and cheers going on all night. Many got low birth dates and rushed out to join the National Guard the next day. I for one got a fairly high number abd dropped my II-S exemption and rode out the draft for the next year. In some ways I regret not having served but at other times I am glad my life was not wasted in that mistake of a war.
