Was 40 too old to be drafted?

Classification: Query

I noticed my ancestor lied about his age on his 1918 draft card and made himself a year older - 40 years old instead of 39 - and I was wondering if this was significant?

Did he have a less chance of being drafted if he was 40 instead of 39?

He registered in NE Arkansas.
