TO BE REARRANGED
Nebraska Will Benefit Because
of Overenlistments in the
Hawaiian Islands; Re
duce County Quotas.
(From Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, July 17. (Special.) The
fact that Hawaii has enlisted 1.990
more men for the army than the draft
calls for Jias necessitated the recon
struction of the figures affecting Ne
braska. Lee eKJtcalfe, secretary to the
governor, has been busy today in an
effort to rearrange the figures for Ne
braska, which means that because of
the over-enlistment in the islands,
each county in this state will be bene
fited its proportionate share, not very
much, but just enough so that Mr.
Metcalfe has had to go over the en
tire state apportionment and make an
apportionate reduction for each
It has also been discovered that one
county in the state, .Hamilton, enlisted
more men than the quota assigned,
S.S4 per cent.' These figures had to
be taken into consideration, with the
end in view to making an apportionate
reduction in all counties.
Authorities at Washington have no
tified Governor Neville that the quota
of men to be raised by Nebraska this
time is 1.5,900. Deducting the 5,691
men who have eulisted in this state in
the National Guard, federal or some
other service, leaves the number to
be drawn from the draft 8,209. Deduct
from the overenlistment in the islands
the "quota for Nebraska of 24, leaves
the total to be drawn by the draft
as 8,185 in the state. The 5.54 per cent
of over-enlistments in Hamilton
county will not affect the state total,
but will lower each county's quota
a very little.
