Curtis Tarr Spinning Draft Lottery Drum

(Original Caption) Washington: Selective Service Director Curtis Tarr spins the drum containing the sequence capsules, as the draft lottery got underway in the Commerce Department auditorium. The lottery was to determine the callup order of nearly 2 million young men turning 19 this year on the basis of pairing of 365 capsules containing the days of the year and an equal number of blue capsules containing draft sequence numbers 1 through 365.
