DES MOINES UNION
Say Raise in Wages Did Not
Follow Raise in Prices,
as Was Promised
(Prom a Staff Correspondent)
Des, Moines, la., Sept. 20. (Special
Telegram.) Union barbers through
the city went on a strike for higher
wages this afternoon. The barbers
claim that when proprietors raised
the price of hair 'cuts and massages to
35 cents they were promised an in
crease of $1 per week, which they say
they have not received. More than
thirty-five shops were affected.. The
scale is said to be $14 per week and
one-half of all over $20 taken in by
the individual barbtr.
Many Recruits Come.
The second increment of approxi
mately 18,000 men began reporting at
Camp Dodge today from all parts of
the Thirteenth division district. Many
of the men reached the city Tuesday
in order to be on the grounds early
this morning:. Plans perfected by the
War department made it pdssible o
register and assign to quarters more
than 300 men per hour. Experience
with the first quota has aided in the
work of registering, assigning and
quartering the new soldiers. After
entering the big registration building
the recruits "are in charge of officers
and are not allowed to see or talk
to outsiders until they have been es
corted to their quarters. The men
now reporting are a part of the 300,
000 conscripts, who form the sec
ond quota of the national overseas
army reporting today, at the sixteen
cantonments throughout the country.
The first S per cent, who have been
in camp almost two weeks, has moved
out of its barraclu into others in or
der to make room for the new ar
rivals. It is estimated that It will
take the rest of this week and the
first of next to receive all of this
contingent When they are in camp

Army Dentists Here.
Thirty-five army dentists, assigned

of the selected men. The army has

soldiers. Army physicians are also re

Would Examine All Registrants.
Governor Harding favors the ex
amination at this' time of all of the
men registered under the draft law as
proposed by General Crowder, He has
so informed the provost marshal gen
eral in response to an inquiry sent to
all of the governors. It is considered
probable that General Crowder will
order this to be done. In a tele
gram to Governor Harding, General
Crowder states that it required the
examination of 3,000,000 registrants in
order to evolve the first quota of
687,000 men. He declares that the
remaining 7,000,000 men are in a state
of unrest as all are subject to call
and none knows whether he may be
taken or when. "These men should
be examined as soon as possible,"
General Crowder declares. "They find
employment difficult andthey must
hesitate to embark on any enterprise
that requires their continued presence.
This state of precarious equilibrium
is bad for them and bad --for the
repose of the public mind."
