NATIONAL GUARD AND REGU
LARS' RANKS TO BE FILLED BY
CONSCRIPTION IF NECESARY
The enlistments in Company C of
the Fourth regiment in this city have
not met with the hearty reception
or result that it should, as this is one
of the best companies in one of the
best regiments in the federal service.
Those who feel inclined to enlist cer
tainly should make up their mind this
week to get into the ranks of the Ne
braska boys. It is intended, if the en
listments do not fill up the ranks of
the National Guard and of the regu
lar army to use the first of the con
scripted men for use in filling up the
regiments to their full war strength.
To those acquainted with army life,
the addition of conscripted men to the
ranks of the regulars and national
guardsmen it will not be the most en
joyable for those who are drawn by
lot to have to serve with the ranks
of men who have volunteered of their
own free will. It is far better, with
the necessity of filling up the regi
ments, to come forward and be placed
on an equal basis with the volunteers
who have offered their services for
the defense of their country, rather
than to be compelled to enter the regi
ments where only a few will be from
the conscripted army.

Mr. F. B. Rys arrived Monday morn

COUNCIL HOLDS IN
The Cass County Defense council
met Tuesday afternoon at Weeping
Water to take up several matters of
importance along the lines of the
preparations for the conservation of
the resources of the state as well as
for the adoption of plans for the
carrynig out of the conscription act
and register which is to be held on
next Tuesday, June 5th, throughout
the nation. The council will assist
the board of registrars in each ward
and precinct of the county in seeing
that every person between the ages
of twenty-one and thirty-one are reg
istered in compliance with the law.
The law is plain on the necessity of
registering and no "person will be al
lowed to avoid the register that come
within the age limits. This includes
all foreigners as well as citizens. A
heavy penalty is attached to the fail
ure to register and those who do not
comply with the law will face a term
of imprisonment as a result.
The defense council also took up
the matter of conserving the fish sup
ply in the streams of the county and
the urging of the use of more fish
by the residents of the county where
it was possible to secure them, there
by conserving the supply of meats
and other foodstuffs.
It was decided upon by the county
council to hold patriotic meetings in
the different communities and pre
cincts of the county at which compe
tent speakers will be present to urge
steps to place the country on an ade
quate defense plan to aid in bringing
the fullest resources of the country
to the front in order to insure' a res
toration of peace and the permanent
guarantee of the right of nations to
exist and work out their own des
tinies as they may deem best. The
county council has a number of plans
to develop that will be of much im
portance and that will add to the de
fense program of the nation.
