Excerpt from The Southwestern Political Science Quarterly, Vol. 1: March, 1921

But the polling-places are under State, not federal, con trol. The choice of the polls, therefore, as the scene of the first step in the recruitment of the national army meant the choice of the States as the national recruiting agents. It meant that the local and district draft boards would be composed of men appointed by the State authorities and that the whole process of selection would be in the hands of men responsible primarily to the States rather than to the federal government. The boldness of this decision has been forgotten in the success to which it led. But success was by no means assured in advance. The general practice of the federal government has been to depend on agents who are subject immediately and directly to federal control. The federal taxes are collected not by State but by federal collectors of customs and of internal revenue. The federal police power is entrusted to the United States marshals and to the host of intelligence officers, secret service men, and agents of Bureaus of Investigation in the direct employ of the United States. The great constructive services of the federal government, from farm loans to weather reports, are conducted mainly by federal officers in complete inde pendence of the authority and in uence of the States. The decision to confide the administration of the Selective Ser vice Act so largely to officers of the States was an extra ordinary exception to the established policy of the federal government.
