Selective Service figure dies

Curtis Tarr, the former head of the Selective Service System who oversaw the lottery for the draft during the Vietnam War, has died. Tarr died of pneumonia on Friday at his home in Walnut Creek, Calif. He was 88. The nation had held its first lottery drawing for the draft in December 1969. Before the lottery, local draft boards had control over who was called and who was not.
