Memo to John J. McCloy from Karl Bendetsen about General DeWitt's stance on the draft. Suggests that DeWitt wants harsher penalities for draft resistance, i.e. making it a felony instead of a misdemeanor. Reasons that "you can shoot a man to prevent the commission of a felony" and not a misdemeanor.
