as occasion compels. The demands
of this strenuous war period should
introduce a new era in compulsory
employment. Society- should demand
some returns in profitable endeavor
from every young person capable of
doing something. Neither the young
man with silk socks nor the one with
patched trousers should be permitted
to kill time and accomplish nothing

THE PRESIDENT’S CALL
The President has issued a procla
mat ion, designating June 5th as Reg
i-tration Day. for the purpose of on
taining a military census of ail mer
between the ages of twenty-one and
thirty, the ages decided upon «bv Con
gress. This is the only day on which
it will be possible for a man to regis
ter. No one between the ages pro
vide,! is exempt from this registration.
Every man between these ages must
.-agister on this day. He will perform
his duty at his regular polling place,
which will be open from seven in the
morning until nine P. M.
Registration is solely for the purpose
of obtaining a list of eligible men in
the United States. After this census
has been taken, the process of ex
emption will follow. While the law
fixes a prison sentence as penalty for
failure to register or to comply with
any of the provisions of the law. it al
so provides that where a man volun
tarily presents himself for registration
on the day designated by the Presi
lent and in the event he is selected,
voluntarily presents himself for ser
vie. his name will be carried on the
record as a volunteer soldier.
The county registration board, com
nosed of the county sheriff, clerk and
physician, will appoint registrars for
the various precincts within their
county. The federal government is de
sirous of having, so far as possible,
these registrars serve voluntarily. The
registrars for Sherman county are as

ARMY OF GIRLS WANTED
Girls here is your opportunity to do
something for your country and at the
same time be a Good Samaratan tc
the young men who are going out to
fight and die in order that, you may
have a country in which to live in
peace and security.
Every y«ung man who goes to war
needs from two to three pairs of
wristlets to wear around his wrists in
the'chilly trenches of France. They
will prevent thousands of bad cold:
and many hundreds of deaths from
But wristlets are not a part of the
equipment furnished to each soldier
bv the government. Hence if you the
warm hearted young ladies of our
country, do not make them our boys
will not get them.
Colonel Daniel E. McCarthy, de
parment quartermaster of the Centra’
Department. C. S. Army. Chicago. 111.,
is so warm hearted and generous and
patriotic that he is working nearly
twenty hours a day in his efforts to
make every arrangement for the com
fort and well being of the troops. But
o'onel McCarthy, strong anti brain;
nan that he is. can not furnish then
wristlets bec ause the government doe
iot authorize him to do so.
Will you help Colonel MeCarthj
out in this girls? Will each of yoi
constitute yourself his aid and kni
at least one pair of wristlets for
"some girl's brother?" The colone
has a beautiful young daughter, am
she is knitting them too.
The wristlets should be of tan coloi
if possible, or dark gray or some otli
er subdued color, so they will not at
tract the attention of the enemy. The;
should never be red or any othei
bright color. They should be kni
loosely enough to admit ot drawiuj
them on and off over the hand, am
should be about five inches in length
The editor suggests that inside eaci
pair you pin or sew a iutle slip of pa
per with your name and address plain
ly written thereon so the soldier boy:
may know who sent them.
And to aid the movement and alsc
to do something for his country tht
editor wants to publish in the pape:
the name of every young lady whi
joins in this worthy undertaking. Le
us have your names as fast as yoi
Write Colonel McCarthy a note tell
ing him you are knitting some wrist
lets and ask him where you are tt
send them. He will answer your let
ter promptly and will tell you jus
what to do with them in order tha
they may get to he right place. Ant
he will be immensely pleased o heai
trorn you because of what you are do
ing for "the boys.”
Girls, the editor makes this appea
to you in the name of our country
which we all love so well. You can
not fight, but you CAN make lift
more comfortable for the boys who dt
the fighting—some of whom will nevej
come back again. Come into the offict
and talk it over with us. and if we cat
aid you in any way we will do so.
In writing to Colonel McCarthy ad
