(The tote &cmt-1fttttltl iribtmt THIRTY-FOURTH YEAR. NOUTH PLAOTE, NEB, SEPTEMBER 17, 1?18. No. 71 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 dato. 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 15th. :o::- : :o: :- Notice to Ladies.
