FDR at the Selective Service Draft Lottery, October 1940Watch the video from YouTube
In September 1940, the U.S. Congress passed and President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed into law the resumption of compulsory military service. During the next six weeks, men were required to register, they received draft numbers and the government prepared to conduct a selective service lottery. On October 29, 1940, President Roosevelt, Cabinet officers, Members of Congress and a crowd of more than one thousand people assembled in the Interdepartmental Auditorium on Constitution Avenue in Washington. In these film clips, FDR first speaks to the men of the United States. Attorney General Robert H. Jackson is visible over the Presidents left shoulder. Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson, blindfolded, subsequently draws a capsule from a fishbowl. The capsule is opened and Stimson hands the first draft number to the President. FDR, standing next to his military aide Major General Edwin M. (Pa) Watson, then announces the number: 158. In response, a woman screams audibly—it is her sons draft number.fdr at the selective service draft lottery, october 1940
