Mr. Burgess said that there is not
enough labor in the count, y to pro

tnose things the military torces need,
"e said that it is inevitable that busi
ness must change in character and
; that while more money may be spent
in the essentials to health and effi
ciency, less should be spent in the so
called luxuries. He called a-tention to
the fact that all of the large manu

j Avoicfetl the Draft,
Arrested as Deserter
A hardship of life in the way of
leaving an endearing young wife and
l an 18-month-old baby, was brought
i home to David L. Limie, who is
i wanted by United States authorities
i at St. Joseph- Mo., on a charge of
j evading the draft law. He was taken
into custody last night by Detectives
f A. C. Anderson and Zaloudek, who
; found him in a suite of rooms at 1818
j Capitol avenue, which he is renting
to shelter his wife and child.
I David is 28 years old and registered
j for the selective draft in St. Joseph.
Later he was called up before the
: local board for examination and failed
! to report. He came here nine weeks
ago and since then has been laboring
', from early morning until late'at night
i to earn an enjoyable livelihood for
his frail wife and child, who were
his only thought.
It was a sad scene of parting from
wife and child last night, when the
detectives came to take him away.
The young wife nearly went into
hysterics and only the words: "I'll
come tack some day," from her hus
band seemed to cheer her.
Authorities from St. Joseph sent
I word to police here that they would
arrive some time today.
A saddened and grief-stricken hus
i band will return with them to face
the charge of being a deserter.
