"The Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, was specific in providing that its operation should be equitable and impartial toward all men. Even if this provision had not been included, conducting the program on a thoroughly democratic basis would still have been essential. In 1940 as in the past, the United States had serious problems of segregation and discriminatory treatment with particular reference to members of color minority groups. These minorities and many other citizens had long been conscious of this weakness in the Nation's democracy. Thus was posed a special challenge to Selective Service which was required to interpret and apply the statute equitably and impartially"--Foreword, page [iii]
