Note to Self

World War I Draft Card A (5 June 1917)
World War I Draft Card C (5 June 1917)

In order to properly source the information on this draft card, I need to determine Alva’s serial number and order number. I spent more than an hour trying to figure out what each of the numbers at the top are, and I think I have it partially sorted. If I’m correct, his serial number is 237 and his order number is 606. I have no idea what “No. 58” maps to, which is funny, since it’s the only number that looks official.

So this is mostly a note to myself, because I’m sure I’ll forget before I work on the next draft card. And, if I recall correctly, subsequent cards were not this confusing.
