i A
Attempt Will Be Made to Enlist
Seventy Thousand Men for
Regular Service Within
the Week.
Washington, June 23. A ration
wide drive of one week to recruit 70,
tlOO men to bring the regular army up
COO men regan today in accordance
with President Wilson's proclamation
calling for volunteers. i
i This is the first step in the war or
canization of America's army. Next
is the task of completing the full
strength of the National Guard; then
comes the selection of men for the
new national army from the millions
who registered June 5.
Call of President.
The president calls upon "unmar
ried men between the ages of 18 and
40 years who have no dependents and
who are not engaged in pursuits vi
tally necessary to the prosecution of
the war."
This means that those tjetween the
ages of 18 and 21 and 31 and 40, as
well as the recent registrants.lwill be
given an opportunity for immediate
training and the prospect of early ac
tive service.
The urgency of filling the ranks of
the regular army is emphasized by
army officer, who declare it wilt he
neevsiary within the next six months
to take many of the regulars as in.
structors for the new selective armv.
It is planned to incorporate in the new
regiments of the regular army por
tions "of the already established and
trained units as a framework to As
sure rapid development.
Draft Will Be by Numbers.
Regulations for drafting the new
national army, now awaiting Presi
dent Wilson's approval, contain pro
vision for every step in the great
undertaking except the actual method
of the draft itself.
No official announcement has' been
made and official confirmation is be
ing withheld, butit has been stated
that the federal government itself
will do the drafting, probably here in
Washington, so there will be no op
portunity for local favoritism, politi
cal or otherwise.
. As the regulations stand now every
registered man bears a number. The
numbers will be forwarded to Wash
ington and the drawing will be en
tirely by numbers. The identity of
the numbered men- will be unknown
to those in charge .of the draft ma
chinery and can be established only
by comparing a number with a printed
list of the man's home district.
, Question of Exemption.
The question of exemptions will go
before the local boards. If a man is
extmpted the man bearing the num
ber wbieh was drawn next in order
will take his place and so on until
the first increment of 625,000 has been
assembled. The .others will be called
as the need develops. It is hoped to
have all the men in training by Sep
tember 1.

Boy Scouts Gather More Than
Six Thousand, for Red Cross
The Boy Scouts turned in pledges
to the Red Cross amounting to
$406.33 Saturday noon, making their
total collections in the campaign so
far $6,393.05. These were in ap
proximately 2,000 differint pledges.
Saturday's pledges were for
amounts varying from Z) cents to
$20. One man pledged $4.33. He
obeyed literally the injunction to
"give one day's pay."
I he scout i won t stp today, said
Scout Executive English. "We will
push our campaign right up to Sun
day night. About half of our 860
Omaha scouts have jobs and they are
working evenings and will work Sun
clay. About 200 others are on farms.
The 350 or 400 we have at work are
covering an enormous amount of ter
ritory and it's territory that no other
persons could cover as they do."'

argument tn a woman whn told him
to 'go and ask' a certain wealthy in-iboys are looking forward to it tag-

Sunday a number of the boys will
make talks for the fund in various
churches. During the, Liberty loan
campaign one of these boys talked in
a church that produced several thou
sand dollars. He didn't talk from the
chancel rail, either, but mounted into
the pulpit and pounded the desk to
drive home his argument.
There are forty church troops of
scouts in Omaha and it is expected
half of them will make talks in their
churches for -the Red Cross fund. A
church in Irvington sent in a request
for a scout to talk there on the fund
and Mr. English will send a boy for
the purpose. "

The case has' attracted state-wide
interest for nearly two months and
trie ramifications form a peculiar com

the fabric of the affair factional poli
tics of both towns.
The alleged attempt to execute tlje

made on the evening of "ay 14, in the
office of County Attorney Crites, and
the dual role ot a woman detective.
Mrs. Elsie Phelps, is said to have'
been the keystone ft the plot.
Plot Unfolds.
Tlie woman came to Chadron in
the guise of a one seeking to estab
lish her residence here for the pur
pose of obtaining a divorce. At first
she was known as Mrs. Ellen Lowery
and it was given out for early local
consumption that she had retained
County Attorney Crites to, represent
her. The facts, as alleged by her at
the preliminary hearing, were that she

confidence that she was playing
square with his association.
Eventful Way.
On the evening of May 14, Mrs.
Phelps, Mr. Crites and Mrs. Hood
were in the omce ot Mr. Crites, ex,

utes after they entered the Crites
It was alleged in the information
filed by Crites that the conspiracy
plot contemplated extorting $500 from
him, $500 from Mrs. Hood and $1,000
from Hood, and to require Critea to

Crites is now serving his fifth-term
as county attorney. Fisher, one of the
defendants, is, political rival pf Crites
and when Fisher was made mayor of
Chadron, Crites had occasion to re

Chadron people are watching with
keen interest the Omaha end of the
affair as it is being unfolded in ,the

Brazil's Act Gives
Added Eorce to
Monroe doctrine
Washington, June 23. Diplomatic
exchanges by which Bratil notified,
the United States of the revocation
of its decree of neutrality and the
United States acknowledged Brazil's
action in the interest of Panamerican
solidarity, were published yesterday
by the State department.
Ambassador Da Gaina explained
that he was instructed by President
Braze to say that his government
"recognizod the fact that one of the
belligerents is a constituent portion
of the American continent and 'that
we are bound to that belligerent by
traditional friendship and the same
sentiments in the defense of the vital
interests of America and the accepted
principles of law."
The Monroe doctrine, it was added,
had until now been divested of its
true character because of a compara
tive lack of reciprocity, but the pres
ent events has resulted in a greater
solidarity among American natidns.
