recent Zeppelin and airplane raids on
Great Britain has been the subject ot
seeral private conferences between
military and political leaders here.
The hope was expressed at these
meetings that public clamor would
not override the saner strategic con.
siderations and that any elaborate
system of reprisals would be post
poned until tne assistance 01 Ameri

"The German air raids," said an
official to The Associated Press today,
"were comparatively easy to perforin
because they were largely over terri

public clamor over the ousting of of

council by a vote of 49 to 22 on re
consideration refused to confirm
Mayor Thompson's school board ap

presence of ihe mayor, who had de

time before the confirmation was
called up.' lie loft the chamber and
the alderman reconvened the meet

A resolution bv Alderman lohn C.
Kennedy, socialist, moving the im

sent to the judiciary committee.
Nine school board trustees, two of
them holdovers, were appointed re
cently by the mayor and confirmed by
the council. The first act of the new
board was to elect Edwin S. Davis,
president in place of Jacob M. Loeb,
who had come into bad favor with
Thompson. Lewis Larson and Angus
Shannon, for many years secretary
and counsel for the board also were
replaced. The removals and the idea
of making the public schools the sub

much public criticism and the alder

May Not Draft National
.. .Guard. Before August 5
Washinnton. Tune 23. Drafting of
tne National buard into the federal
armies for war service may be de
layed until August 5, because it has
been found that under the present
plans for drafting the guard in three
increments, July 15, July 25 and Aug
ust 5, the relative -j-ank of its
officers would he established on, an
unfair basis. The National Defense
act provides that National Guard of
ficers shall take rank as of the date
of draft.
The additional time gained by post
poning the draft until August 5,
would be valuable to the department
in making ready the divisional camp
sites at which the state forces will
be mobilized and also would permit
