Washington, June 27. Nearly 800,- 000 young men of 21 who registered or military servic last June 5, had heir order in the draft-classes fixed loday by a second national draft lot ry held with formal ceremony at lie senate onice ouuauig. Just 1,200 numbered slips rolled nto capsules enough to cover the iitof new registrants in the largest focal district in the country were prawn from a big glass bowl and the numbers recorded in serial order. .Under the law all the new registrants 50 at the boitum of the classes to which they iay be assigned and the brder in which the number appearing hn each man s registration card came from tlu bowl determines his place in the list of additions. The task was done in about two hours. After a brief explanatory statement by Provost Marshal Gen eral Crowder, Secretary Baker, blind folded, drew the first number Z46, General March, chief of staff, Chain man Chamberlain and Senator War ren, of the senate military commit tM!

Then ('Major Billy" Wellborn, a young wo men emnloved in the nrovost mar shal generafc office, donned the blind fold and. proceeded to take out cap sules. - The dramatic interest that attend ed the first drawing, which actually aeterminea tne original oraer oi ser pice of 10,000,000 registrants, was al most wholly lacking in today's pro ceedings. Since men placed in Class 1 are certain to be called to the col Srs within a few months at most, the Wqer in which new registrants are Maced is relatively unimporant. in in t -ween nurrarea umana , Boys Called by Draft Fifteen hundred Omaha boys yes- erday were assigned their order num bers In the srest national draft armv ( These 1,500 Omaha boys are those who had become 21 years old since the first big dratt one year ago and who registered June 5 this year.

London, June 27. "I bear witness that the Russian people never will recognize the Brest-Litovslc treaty, which hurled Russia into the abyss of annihilation," said Alexander F. Kerensky, former premier of Russia, at an address at the labor conference today. Mr. Kerensky said that Kussia was bending under German insults and bleeding at every pore, but still op posed the enemy invasion. Labor Meeting Startled. How Kerenskv escaped from Rus sia and how his comrades shielded him from the' bolsheviki remains a secret At present he is evading all uninvited visitors. No conjurer pulling a white rabbit from, a silk hat ever startled an au dience of wild-eyed children more thoroughly than Arthur Henderson surprised the labor conference yes terday in introducing Kerensky. Amazement pervaded the meeting hall, to be followed by cheers as the slight. youthful, dark-haired and smooth- shaven Kusaian stood up beside Mr, Henderson. Kerensky told the labor delegates that the Russian people, fighting against tyranny now, would soon take part again in the lists against the central powers. The sit uation in Russia today, he summar ized as follows: "One can break the Russian oeo- ple, but one cannot subdue it." Kerensky hopes to be received in America as spokesman of his coun trymen. t Relief PJam Being Considered. Washington. June 27. Various plans for extending American aid to Kussia m tne ettort to bring her back into the war are still in the stage of consideration, and before being put into operation will require much con sultation betwen the American gov ernment and the allies. The revival of the plan of sending material aid to the distressed coun try, such as seeds, agricultural imple ments and other means of rehabilita ting her people and accompanying them with sufficient forces to safe guard these ' resources from falling inio me nanas ox me uermans hinges upon the approval of the allies and the consent of the Russian peo ple. It has been suggested the govern ment might take a visit from former rremier rverenstcy to me unnea as a means of informing itself of in timate details. So far as could be learned today, a visit from the for mer premier was still an unsettled question. There are some differences of opinion among the friends ot Rus sia in Washington as to whether con ferences between American officials and Kerensky would be advisable.
