Abstract

Fifty "random permutations" were prepared for use by the Selective Service System as a basis for a two-stage randomization that preceded the lottery drawing on 1 July 1970. This report identifies the permutations used. It also gives the orders in which calendar dates and numbers were put into and drawn from two drums and the correlations between them.
