them fort hat unstinted aid.
Tho questionnaire which Is tho basis
of tho new system is a collection of
questions bringing out tho essential
facts upon which all classifications aro
made . It Is tho only printed form
which any roglstrant needs to uso
either in making claims or .Uing
proof. At first sight it may seem a
little formidable, but a reading of tho
questions shows that they aro simple
enough for any person who can read

The president's message lines up
tho whole local profession of the
United States as assistants of tho so

out their questionnaires. Under tho
new regulations a place Is to bo "pro

where registrants may go for free ad

document. Tho county Judge or oth
er Judicial officer of similar court Is
placed at tho head of a committee of
lawyers in each vicinity and this com
mitteo is charged with tho duty

lawyers and other volunteers present
to help registrants In filling out tho
Questionnaires aro to bo mailed by

registrants each day. Tho principal
work of tho legal advisory boards will
thus bo over in 20 days, by which
time all tho questionnaires should bo
returned to the boards. Every man
has seven days in which to return his
questionnaires fully made out. Tho
process of classification will begin
about December 15. Eight days later
the boards will begin tho great pro
cess of classification, which becomes,
