Draft order

Posted: 1345308696000
Classification: Query
I have a couple of questions which are troubling about WW 1.

First-Does anyone have a list of the 10,500 draft board selected randomly in 1917 by Sec. of War? Was draft board # 8 from Jersey City, NJ included?

Second-how did the draft board determine the order of qualified men for induction? Can one find out if "A" was drafted before "B"?

Thirdly-Did they usually draft 2 brothers who were supporting a windowed mother?

Lot of questions I know but recently comments by a third generation family member have opened old wounds.
