Added explanation of Hershey's order to draft protesters as why he became a focus of anti-war protests on campuses.[edit]

Hershey's career history was incomplete, I thought, without explaining "The Hershey Directive," aimed at drafting protesters immediately, and how it triggered more protests and put Hershey's name on a lot of the protester's signs seen on the evening news. How could this have been overlooked in the article? Was it intentionally omitted? (talk) 19:32, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

The case cited in the article, Bucher v. Selective Service System, was not a Supreme Court case. I am researching this matter now and will revise the article. Meanwhile, if anyone has information about the relevant Supreme Court cases, please post that information here. Rochkind (talk) 14:41, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
