This means that tho slxty-nino men

Clork Alloa says that including farm
ors, who woro temporarily exempted
by reason of farm work thoro Is still
about one hundred men in class ono,
but to 1111 tho July call, It will bo
nocossary to include somo of these
farmors. It Is figured that by July 22d
tho harvesting will bo over, tho culti
vation of corn protty well completed
and tho demand for farm labor will
not bo so great. Undor these condi
tions at least homo ot tho temporary
