Whole Nation Astir as Boys from Ev
ery Village and Hamlet Go
Forth Unhesitatingly to
Do Their Duty.
Washington, Sept. 18. President
Wilson gave notice to all governors
of states today that in hearing claims
for exemption coming up from the
district boards he would consider
only evidence already submitted to
the hoards and nothing else, unless
the boards recommend it. ,
The effect of the president's ac
tion is to absolutely shut out all
appeals of a political nature or
thos which may be brought by in
terested friends "with pulls" and
confine consideration of the cases to
the evidence.
Washington, Sept. IS. Marshal
led for the last time as civilians and
under civilian authority, more than
300000 men of the-national army
will go forward today to the sixteen
cantonments to be trained for the
battle against German autocracy.
Their next move will be as fighting
men toward the battle fields on the
Whole Nation Astir.
The whole nation is astir with the
movement of the selective forces. The
men represent approximately 43 per
cent of tlit total quota under the
first call from each of nearly 5,000
local boards.
Already at the camps is the ad
vance guard of 5 per cent of the to-J
tal, composed of experienced men, in
cluding cooks. Out of this has been
created a skeleton organization into
which the second increment will be
gin to be absorbed tomorrow with
little confusion. When the last man
of' this increment arrives, the camps
will house half of the first call forces
numberins; 343,500 men, and the
other half will "follow as rapidly. as
quarters and equipment'' are made
Given Partial Equipment.
In a statement tonight the War de
partment says the enormous task of
obtaining equipment and supplies for
the army is moving satisfactorily.
Same of the men of the national army
may be only partially equipped for
some, time after they are mobilized
and no attempt will be made to fur
nish them with full war equipment
until the eve of their departure for
Europe. Some civilian clothing, such
as overcoats, will have to be used for
a time, as the clothing industry has
not as yet caught up with its work.
With the mobilization of one-half
of the C87.000 men of the first cajl
under the selective service law in
progress, the question arises as to
whether that number of men will be
sufficient to fill all units of the na
tional guard and national army. At
present there are indications that a
deficiency in men will be disclosed
when official reports from all of the
thirty-two training camps become
Divisions Not at War Strength.
Seventeen divisions of the nation
al guard have been organized, but
with the exception of the-New York,
Pennsylvania . and a few others, and
the Forty-second division, which
toon will embark for France, they are
not at maximum war strepgth. The
fighting strength of the seventeen
divisions under the new tables of
organization would be 623,000 meix
supplemented by many thousands of
auxiliary troops. Whatever deficien
cies there are will' he supplied
promptly from the national "army a3
the guard will go first to the front.
Th Stanneforth of Ilavelock,
who has been visiting in the city
with J. E. Jones and family, depart

years, returned to the Burlington

Dear Friends: We haven't had
church this morning Tut expect to

is with us, a short time ago he went
through the cars and asked all the
men to refrain from swearing as this
was Sunday etc. We are happy and
make the best of everything. Our
mess could be worse, this morning
our menu was Oatmeal and cream,
boiled eggs, bread and Jam, coffee,
and all you wanted. We are only
about 350 miles from Deming but
will not get there until tomorrow
morning on account of going through
the mountains. If we smoke all the
cigars and cigarettes e have on
hand, there are some of us who will
not ever get to Deming, let alone
France. In the middle of the fore
noon and afternoon they pass thru
the car with fruit and candy. This
isn't for all the Companies. Just the
Machine Gun, the Company Com
manders are responsible for that.
The country we have been going
through since yesterday sure looks
discouraging. Once In . to. -while you

write more later. We are going
to have non-Com. school soon.
