List of Single Men holding Deferred Classification in County

The following is a list of men, the greater part of whom are single, who hold deferred classification under the selective service act because of their claims of industrial exemption or for other similar causes. These constitute the list mentioned in last week's Times as being those whose occupation is unknown to the board and the public is instructed to scan the list carefully and report any whose claims are not founded on fact. This list is published under the orders of the war department in order that sufficient men may be reclassified Into class one to make up the current quotas. Unless the public assists in weeding out all claims which are not valid the board will soon be obliged to call married men from class four, which is something the war department does not wish to do at this time. This list is published, not with the idea of embarrassing any man who has a just claim for deferred classification, as probably most of these men have, but to assist in uncovering such unjust claims as there may happen to be. The publication of a man's name in this list does not indicate, necessarily, that he is unjustly avoiding military service, but it is a protection of all just claims of all kinds by weeding out those which in the judgment of the board may be weak or groundless. The list of class 2c, 2d, 3j, 3k, 31, 4c and 4d men is as follows:

List of Men from Which the Large July Quota Will be Called

The following is the list of men subject to the draft call which are listed as being available for the current quota. While it is not yet certain that this will be the case, it is thought probable that all of these men will be ordered into service at the latter part of July, in the big call for men to send to the southern camps at Atlanta, Ga., and Little Rock, Ark. The exact number required from Carroll county is not yet known, and therefore the board cannot say just how far in this list it will be compelled to go, but it advises every one of the men whose names are in this list to place their business and personal affairs in such shape that they can go on short notice, as it is likely that every one of them will be in the call. Several other men have their cases before the district board for reclasslncation, and it is probable that some of them will also be included in the July call. If such names are added they will be published in the Times as soon as they can be determined in order that every man who is liable for service in the big call may have as much time as possible in which to straighten out his personal affairs. The names given below are listed according to their order numbers, as this is the order in which they will be called. Registrants who know their order numbers will have little trouble in finding their names, if included in this call, if they will just find the subdivision of hundreds in which their order number comes. An arrangement of this sort was made by the Times in order to facilitate the finding of any certain name instead of having to look through the entire list. Order numbers are not printed with each name, but they are grouped by hundreds after the first thousand, which is so small as to be no larger than the average list of a hundred above that point, which is a striking showing of the toll taken of men who went into the draft with order numbers of less than one thousand.

129 Carroll Men To Camp Gordon

July Call For Georgia Camp Less Than In Other Counties

Others To Camp Pike

Carroll County Men Go With Smaller Contingent — August Call Will Be Still Heavier, but the Number Wanted Here Is Not Yet Known.

Carroll county, by reason of the large number of volunteers which she has furnished for military service, again escapes the heavy call with which surrounding counties are confronted in sending men into service on July 22. This county is to furnish only 129 men on this date, while Crawford sends 230, Calhoun 210, Shelby 191, Sac 182, Boone 216, Cerro Gordo 408, and many counties smaller in size; and population than Carroll pass the 200 mark. The Carroll county boys will be among the 6,480 which will be sent to Camp Gordon, Atlanta, Ga. This was announced at the same time the quota was announced. Twelve thousand men from Iowa will go to Camp Pike, Little Rock, Ark., and on July 219 the state will be called upon to send 3,265 men to Camp Forrest; Ga. This will necessiate another call on that date, but the county quotas have not as yet been determined. Carroll county therefore has a large number of men left in Class One, and as further reclassiflcation is going on it is expected that the supply will probably last until in September. The August call will be the largest yet issued, requiring some 300,000 men throughout the nation, and of course this county will be called upon for somewhere near 200 men in that month again. It is possible, however, that the July and August calls may be slightly enlarged in order to make up for shortages which are certain to occur in other counties. In other words, Carroll county may be compelled to lend men to other counties, these men to be paid back later in future draft calls. The following Is a list of men included in the July 22 call. It is possible that some few names may be dropped and others added as reclassiflcations come in, but this list is substantially correct:


H. D. McPherson, Glidden.

Some of the men named last in this list may be dropped out as other men with lower order numbers may be reclassified in time to be included in this call. The list as given above, however, is correct so far as can be learned now.

Storm Of Protest Enlarges Class 1

Hundreds of Affidavits Against Men Who Are Being Deferred

Neighbors Are Doing It

Publication of List of Such Men Brings Out Affidavits from Neighbors Against Their Claims and Many Will be Reclassified Soon.

The local registration board is the center of a storm of protests which have arisen over the publication of the list of single deferred classification men in the county newspapers last week. There is a continual stream of registered men in class one who are coming up to make affidavits of protest against the deferred classification of others who are just as liable to military service as themselves, and as a result it appears that the reclassification will run into the hundreds.

Incidentally, in this repsect, it must be noted that there were some married men's names in the list as published, but these are counted as single because they do not claim deferred classification on account of dependents, but because of their industrial claims. The local board does not need to publish the list of those holding deferred classification on dependency for the simple reason that it has full authority to reclassify these as it pleases, but industrial claims must go to the district board for reclassification.

Scores of men who have heretofore held deferred classification on industrial or agricultural grounds are having their claims contested by their own friends and neighbors, and as soon as these are compiled they will be sent to the district board with a request that these men be reclassified. If more single men cannot be placed in class one the local board will be put to the necessity of sending married men into the army, for the heavy calls of July and August are expected to drain the county of class one men, even the new registrants.

Many of these latter have already enlisted, so when it comes time to call the class of 1918 there will not be many left, and the heavy calls must come from the ranks of those who registered last year much the same as if another registration had not been held. The August call, it is said, will be for 300,000 men, and this means that Carroll county will be asked for abut two hundred more at that time. The government is now training, equipping and sending to France about 300,000 a month, and in view of this fact it will require that many new men at the army camps every month hereafter. Only a man whose claim for deferred classification is perfectly air-tight need expect much chance of escaping the draft calls after September 1.

The work or fight order is sending thousands of married city men onto the farms of the country to take the places of the single men who are going into service, and this order will be extended from time to time as may be necessary in order to keep the farms and vital industries of the county running. The whole nation is now getting down to a war basis and no individual's preferences or rights bear much weight in the face of the stubborn facts with which it is now confronted.

The first of next year will probably see America in much the same condition as England and France so far as man-power is concerned; in other words, every one will be doing something vitally necessary to the winning of the war, either in service or in civil life. The people who prepare themselves for this condition and make up their minds to meet it when the time comes will be the fortunate ones.

Current Quota For Army Call Raised

Carroll County Must Send 241 Men July 22 Instead of 129

Forty More On July 29

Heavy Draft Calls Completely Exhaust Class One and Take Large Numbers of Married Men Into Service — Must Reclassify More.

Bulletin - The official call for the July 22 contingent, issued Wednesday morning, states that the Carroll county boys will entrain for Camp Gordon, Ga., at 9:08 p.m. Friday, July 26. They will be mustered into service at the court house at 4 o'clock. A detachment from the army will be in Carroll to take charge of the prceedings, according to unofficial reports received here.

Two hundred and eighty-one men are to be called from Carroll county for military service within the next two weeks, according ot the quotas as listed to date. Last Friday morning the local board was advised that an error had been made in computing the number required in the July 22 call, and that 241 men should be sent under that call, instead of 129, as announced last week. Monday morning it was announced that the July 29 call would be for 40 men, which is less than the original estimate. This number is smaller because the July 22 call was enlarged.

The two calls will take practically every Class One man in the county, except for the new registrants, who are being held for the August call. Even at that it is expected that the number will be insufficient, as many of the class of 1918 have already enlisted in the navy or have claimed deferred classification. It is said that 147 out of the 181 have listed themselves as "managers of farms," and claim deferred classification on this account.

The board must obtain more Class One men in order to meet future calls beyond August, and it must proceed to further reclassifications. Not only are the present calls exhausting Class One of its single men, but a large number of married men are included in the first of them. How the second will be filled is a matter of conjecture; it may be possible that it will be composed entirely of married men.

Those listed for entrainment to Camp Gordon, Ga., during the five day period beginning July 22, in addition to the list of 129 published last week are:

Why Farmers Are Called By Draft

County Agent Makes Explanation of the Nation's War Needs

Germans Are To Blame

Government Inteded Deferring Farmers Until Crops Were in, but Strength of German Armies Forbids Delay — All Class 1 Men Go.

The county agent has evidently been placed in a difficult position by those who appeal to him to have their draft calls deferred for agricultural reasons; and also it is probable that many people do not yet understand why farmers are being taken off their farms and placed in the army. The county agent makes the following statement for the information of the public:

Many complaints come to the department of agriculture to the effect that farmers and farm laborers have not received proper consideration under the War Department's rules of deferred classification. The law and the rules of the War Department vest the powers of exemption and deferred classification solely and exclusively in the district boards and there is no authority in any other official to interfere with this jurisdiction except in particular cases. There is only the right of appeal to the President, under terms prescribed by the War Department.

Neither the Department of Agriculture nor any other department, nor any official has any power over the district boards. They are composed of the citizens of each state and they are presumed to have the best information and to be most mindful of the needs of their states and sections. Citizens who feel that boards have acted unwisely should address themselves to the boards or should cause appeals to be made from the boards to the president. The Department of Agriculture is powerless to affect decisions by the boards or to alter the rules of the War Department or to change the law of the Congress.

On March 12 last, the Provost Marshal General of the War Department issued an order directing the local boards in furnishing their quotas for the army, to defer until the last those actively and assiduously engaged in agriculture, even though they had been placed in Class 1. At the time that order was issued, the War Department expected to call only 300,000 or 400,000 men before the harvest, but after the order was issued, the German offensive of March 21 began, with its perils to the allied cause, and the War Department found it necessary to call many more men than it contemplated on the 12th of March.

Consequently, in many communities the local boards have been compelled to call all the men in Class 1 even though they are engaged in agriculture. It should be remembered that men so called were placed by their district boards in Class 1 and it should be understood also that they therefore were always subect to call. Emergency of the present war situation is such that the nation can take no chances of delay in the mobilization of the necessary man power to reinforce the allies of the Western Front. The slightest delay might cause a frightful disaster.

Six More Men Will Go To The Artillery

August 5 Call Asks for Another Contingent to Jefferson Barracks, Mo.

Another call for men for artillery service was received by the local board the first of the week, and under its provisions the county must send six men to Jefferson Barracks, Mo., during the five-day period beginning August 5. The actual date of entrainment is not yet announced, but the men for this service have already been selected. They are Emil Rudd, Loren Leonard, Frank A. Roth, Floyd Kretzinger, L. C. Bowman and Charles Smith.

The forty men to be selected for the Camp Forrest contingent, to leave here on or about next Monday, July 29, have not yet been selected, with the exception of Raymond E. Fox, who enlisted under this call. The call for tomorrow has just been completed, and the board was compelled to leave the selection of the Camp Forrest contingent until the Camp Gordon contingent was sent away, as there was some uncertainty regarding the status of certain registrants.

It is understood that waivers of classification and reclassifications by the district board have released all of the married men formerly included in the Camp Gordon call, but it is likely that many of them will have to be included in the Camp Forrest call if the county is to make up its forty men.

Many Volunteers

Emil Jennings Kuhl, Peter Kuhl and Emil C. Dethlefs, all of Manning, entrained Tuesday for Camp Marby, Texas, where they will enter the University of Texas for special training for military service. These men were all volunteers for this call. Raymond E. Fox has also enlisted for service at Camp Forrest, Ga., and will go with the boys who leave here in the July 29th call for that place.
There is a call for a number of men to go into special training at Ames on August 15, and this call is now open to enlistment. The number required at this time is not yet known, but applicants for the service should volunteer at once, as it will be first come, first served.
