(c) A person subject to registration may be registered after the time or day fixed for his registration in case he is prevented from registering during that time or on that day by circumstances beyond his control.

Every person subject to registration is required to familiarize himself with such regulations and to comply therewith. 4. I call upon the Governor of each of the several States and the Territories of Alaska and Hawaii, and of Puerto Rico, and the Board of Commissioners of the District of Columbia, and all officers and agents of the United States and all officers and agents of the several States, Territories, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, and political subdivisions thereof, and all local boards and agents thereof appointed under the provisions of the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, or the Selective Service Regulations pre- scribed thereunder, to do and perform all acts and services necessary to accomplish effective and complete registration. 5. In order that there may be full cooperation in carrying into effect the purposes of the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, I urge all employers and Government agencies of all kinds-Federal, State, territorial, and local-to give those under their charge sufficient time in which to fulfill the obligations of registration incumbent upon them under the said Act and this proclamation.
