SELECTIVE SERVICE

– THE SELECTIVE SERVICE DRAFT BEGAN IN 1940

– IN OCTOBER 1942, THE GOBERMENT PUT LIMITS ON TRAVEL

( In times of war musicians were exactly the young men who the army was looking for, at that time salaries were not good that’s whay musicians had to play their instrument to earn few money.

in october 1942, the goverment put limits on travel, and the next month introduced gas rationing.

when musicians got fired they have to manage the armed forces and the war was a time of prosperity. ( there was a carpe diem spirit in the air)
