country that could make them. "Now
we have learned that we can make

said Senator Young, "since we have

FRONT FIRST OF
Washington, Dec. 2, Under the
new draft rules and regulations ef
fective December 15, men convicted of
failing to register on last June 5, will
be dealt with more harshly than under
the old system. Provost Marshal Gen
eral Crowcler announced today that
such men, instead of being given jail
sentences, as has been done in many
cases heretofore, will be so listed by
local boards as to insure their call
with the first increment summoned
after the new rules are put in force.
Local boards are directed not to
send the registration cards of the con
victed men to the state adjutant gen
eral for serial number assignment, but
to place them at the top of the first
class liable for call. Thus the men,
it was pointed out, will forfeit all
chances of the master list rotation,
except in cases where physical con
dition or the terms of the law re
quire exemption or deferred classifi
cation. Men now utyder suspended sentence
for failing to register also will be

can make toys if we must. Albert
O. Jensen has opened a toy factory

makes are no mere dolls. They are
practical toys such as delight the

ON CUT PROFITS;
HOOVER IS FIRM
Washington, Dec. 2. A vigorous
protest yesterday by Chicago packers
failed to shake the food administra
tion's decision to enforce regulations
which will cut packing profits to 9
per cent. The packers' objections
were presented to Food Administrator
Hoover by repres",tives of the five
great packing houses.
The decision t.mt earnings shall
not exceed 9 per cent maximum profit
was reached, the packers were told,
after a careful investigation of pre
war profits and after consideration
was given to the entire situation. Pre
war profits, the investigation dis
closed, were slightly less than 9 per
cent. Any profit higher than that, Mr.
Hoover declared, would force pro
ducers and consumers of the country
to pay for plant expansion and would
raise a serious question of public
policy and the rights of the public in
expansion of the sort.
Any regulations imposed by the
government, the packers said, would
be observed, but any responsibility for
future shortage in production would
fall to the food administration.
