Joe Rhoades is a patient at the Gillette hospital receiving treatment for a brain concussion, which he sustained on Friday of last week. He was riding down a hill with his horse on a run when the animal stumbled, rolling over with its rider twice. Mr. Rhoades, who is an employee at the Glenn Morse ranch, did not fully regain consciousness until Tuesday. He was brought to Gillette by men who saw the accident.

Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey announces that local draft boards will begin reclassifying about 500,000 married men without children this week, and said some will be inducted almost immediately. The draft law passed by Congress in June ordered the reclassification of childless married men from 3-A to 1-A unless they qualify for deferments on some grounds other than marriage. Hershey warned married draft registrants to notify the local boards “immediately” if they have become fathers in the past two years. He also pointed out that the new regulations change rules governing deferments in cases where a registrant claims unborn children as dependents. In the past, a registrant has been able to obtain a dependency deferment from the date his child was conceived — and on his own say so. The new regulations require a registrant to file a physician’s certificate stating that a child has been conceived.

Halloween will come a day early in Gillette this year. At least that’s when the bulk of the city’s ghouls and hob-goblins will be making their trick-or-treat rounds. And Saturday — one day ahead of the traditional All Hallows Eve celebration — is also the date for the second annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. Police Chief Jimmy Richardson this week urged all spook-guiding parents to make Saturday the big night. Not only will it be earlier for police to watch over the youngsters, there will probably be better success for the candy-seekers, who won’t find so many homes vacant because of Sunday church services.
