Woman's Defense Council
Prepares for a Big Task
Preparations for the 1 castration of
tho women of the state arc being
pushed by tho woman's committee of
the state council of defense. Just aB
soon ns the county chairmen arc all
heard from, the governor will appoint
a day by proclamation on which the
women will be asked to appear at the
polling places of their respective coun
tics. This registering for war scr
vice is entirely voluntary, but it is
hoped that every woman over sixteen
years of age will give in her name,
There will be no such thing as dis
qualification on account of infirmities
or age, and the grandmother of eighty
will be just ns welcome at the polls as
her granddaughter of sixteen, tho she
may register for nothing more ar
duous than the knitting of wristlets,
or if not a knitter, for only the pa
triotic zeal to inspire others. The
council has enough copies of the pres
ident's war message on hand to give
one to every woman who registers.
The registration card is complicated
but full instructions have been re
ceived from Washington for filling
them. The card is large and has ten
semi-circular "tabs" across the top
marked with letters "U" and "T" and
the following branches of service: Ag
ricultural, clerical, domestic, indus
trial, professional, public service, so
cial service, Red Cross and allied re
lief, miscellaneous, contributions. If
the person has training and exper
ience in any branch, that is indicated
by encircling a number, or if un
trained, she underlines the one in
which she wishes service or training.
Ago for registration, over 16 years.
After upper half of card has been
filled in with her personal qualifica
tions, tho woman should select the
occupation in which she has already
had training and wishes to serve, or
in which she desires training.
Example: A woman wishes to vol
unteer her services or secure employ
ment ns an "accountant." Under the
general heading of "Clerical" in circle
"No. 10" to show that she has had
training in this line, or underline "ac
countant" if she wishes to learn this
branch. Then in the tab at the top
marked "Clerical" cross out tho "U"
leaving the "T" to show that the wom
an is trained, and add the number
"10" to show which branch of "Cler
ical" is meant. If untrained, cross
out "T," leaving the "U," followed by
the number "10," to show that the
woman is untrained but desires to
study this branch. If the woman of
fers no other service either in the
form of contributions or training.
then all the other "tabs" are cut off
on the line below their headings,
leaving only the one "tab" marked
"Clerical" standing on tho card. If the
woman wishes to bo recorded as offer
ing service in a third line, then the
"tnbs" for all the services she offers
will bo left standing and all others
Where there are few cauls they
should bo filed alphabetically by
names, "tabs" indicating occupations.
Whore there are a large number of
cards they should be arranged alphu
bctically by names but may bo filed
under occupations in scpaiate cases
with subheadings indicated by names
or numbers corresponding to those on
face of card.
These cards are to bo retained at
local headquarters in cities, city
wards, towns or rural counties where
they will servo as a card catalogue of
women giving service. Summaries of
tho local registration cards should be
sent at regular intervals to tho head
quarters of tho state division of the
