TAHLIiT TO HE ERECTED
TO HOYS IN SERVICE.
A cominlttob . composed of O. B.
Elder, chairman, A. P. White, A. S.
Allen, Ray C. Langford and Ira L.
Baro has been named to secure tho
nanic of every Lino .In county boy In
service and place them on a tablet to
lu erected on the court house grounds.
These names, together with the homo
address, will bo printed In good sized
ijpo am' arrange I i.lphabetlcnll' ,
leaving space under each alphabet
letter to add tho names of thoso who
enter the service after the tablet has.
been placed In position. This tablet
will bo In tho shape of a case, covered
with plato glass' ,and of such a per
manent naturo as to stand not only
during the continuance of the war, but
for years after. Should a man bo
killed or die, a gold star will bo
placed at the head of his name. In an
other case will be a duplication of tho
names with the present address of each
man. For Instance If John Smith's pres
out address Is Camp Funston and ho
Is transferred to another camp next
week the address will be changed.
The committee will rely upon tho
parents or friends of tho boys to see
that these changes aro kept up to
Tho committee realizes that It has
undertaken quite a task. Tho names
of drafted men can easily be secured
from registration board, but it will l&
somewhat difficult to securo the names
of all tho boys who enlisted. The
committee therefore asks that tho
parents of every boy who enlisted
send his name, his home address and
Ills present address to O. E. Elder,
chairman. This should be done at
as early a day as possible as tho com
mittee Is anxious to complete Its work
without unnecessary delay.
The committee asks the people of
Lincoln county to Interest themselves
and lend assistance in this work to
the end that a deserving tribute to tho
boys in service may be erected and
maintained and honor given to those
to whom honor is duo.
THE REGISTRATION IX COUNTY
THURSDAY WAS S.&S1.
Tho last precinct returns of the
registration hold Thursday were re
ceived yesterday by the registration
board. Tho total number registering
in tho county was 2,581, or 823 more
than registered in June 1917. The
number registering last Thursday
was 254 greater than tho ostlniate
made by tho federal authorities. We
can therefore claim that Lincoln coun
ty has again gono "over tho top."
Tho board has been notified that all
clerical work, physical examination
and classification of tho men and
everything pertaining to last week's
registration must bo completed with
in ono hundred days from the date of
registration.' This means that all
work must bo completed and men be
subjected to call not later than De
cember 20th. It Is possible, however,
that class one men may bo called bo
foro that date, and It Is certain that
qulto a number of tho boys between
eighteen and twenty-one will bo In
tho training schools before October
