TO DRAFT THE ARMY BY NUMBER

Regulations for Raising War Army Await President’s Approval
 

      Washington, June 25.—Regulations for drafting the new national army, now awaiting President Wilson’s approval, contain provisions for every step in the great undertaking, except the actual method of the draft itself. No official announcement has been made and official confirmation is withheld, but it has been stated, and generally accepted here as true, that the Federal government itself will do the drafting, probably here in Washington, so there will be no opportunity for local favoritisms.

      As the regulations stand now, every registered man bears a number. The identity of the numbered men will be unknown to those in charge of the draft machinery.

      As the numbers are drawn they will be telegraphed to the home districts, where the registered men will learn if they have been drafted. The questions of exemptions will come up and this will go before the local boards. If a man is exempted, the man bearing the number which was drawn next in order, will take his place and so on.

      In this way all those available for service out of the 10,000,000 who registered will be made ready for the country’s call and from them the first increment of 625,000 will be assembled. Plenty of time will be given for drafted men to arrange their personal affairs and report to the cantonment camps. It is hoped to have them all in training by September 1 or very soon thereafter.                           The Daily Tribune, Monday, June 25, 1917

 


BAY CITY BOY MAKES MARKSMAN

Won Medal at Target Practice and Promoted
 

      Going from the position of mere private in the Marine Corps to the position of the recognized and merited promotion of “marksman” with a splendid medal of honor dangling from his breast in just a few months’ time is going some, but it has been done and by a Bay City boy at that.

      Only a few short months ago Harry Hobbs, son of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Hobbs of this city, was knocking about town and contenting himself with what would turn up. Then the call for volunteers came, Harry enlisted in the Marine Corps and was transported over to a training camp in South Carolina. His training began immediately and with it Harry got busy. Busy enough to accomplish the above results.

      But that is not all. He bought $100.00 worth of Liberty bonds, so of course, feels that he is something of a citizen as well as a marksman.

      Harry has many friends here amongst whom is the Tribune and we are all glad to know that he is advancing so well and so rapidly.

---------------

      The life of a recruit in the Marine Corps is not so hard as one might think. He has plenty of amusement. There is one of the finest gymnasiums in this part of the country here, and we have a right to use it any time. There is also a fine library, where you may pass your leisure hours at nights; there is a free picture show, where the finest pictures produced are handled; also boxing and wrestling matches. On Sundays vaudeville. Every evening at six there is a band concert by one of the finest bands in the country. There is a pool and billiard hall, bowling alleys and swimming pool; also a fine athletic park, with a base ball diamond, tennis court, football field, and all modern conveniences for all games. The recruit is entitled to all these things after his day’s work.

      The tents in which he stays is floored and electric lighted; in winter he stays in barracks. He has an opportunity to attend church, as services are held every Sunday. His company is good, as the Marine Corps is the most choice branch of service. So you see we “rookies” don’t have such a hard time.                 Harry G. Hobbs, U.S.M.C.

WILL RAISE COAST ARTILLERY COMPANY

County Judge Lewis Ordered to Organize Company in Ten Days
 

      County Judge R. R. Lewis, formerly captain of Co. “G,” 3d Texas Infantry of Texas National Guards, has received orders from General Hulen to raise a company of coast artillery for this county, which is to be composed of one hundred men.

      Judge Lewis has ten days to do this work and has already launched the campaign for recruits.

      Bay City and Matagorda County long before war was declared against Germany furnished a company for the anticipated Mexican troubles, which is still intact and stationed at a Texas port. Besides this company the city and county have contributed quite a number who are in all classes of military service and scattered over the United States, some even now on the firing line in Belgium.

      These conditions notwithstanding, Judge Lewis will endeavor to carry out the orders given him to get together the required one hundred men.

ONE HUNDRED MEN FORM COMPANY
 

Second to Be Raised in This County Since May, 1916

      The second company for this (Matagorda) county since May, 1916, has been organized within the past ten days by County Judge R. R. Lewis, formerly captain of Company G, 3d Texas Infantry, now stationed at a Texas port.

      Judge Lewis states that the new company is infantry instead of a company of coast artillery. He will be commissioned captain and is now engaged in mustering the company in. At present it consists of 100 men, but Capt. Lewis is urging all the young men to volunteer by the 10th, to avoid conscription.                                 The Matagorda County Tribune, Friday, July 13, 1917

 


JUDGE R. R. LEWIS COMMISSIONED CAPTAIN
 

      Richard R. Lewis, county judge of Matagorda County, was commissioned a captain in the National Guard of Texas, infantry, unassigned. Captain Lewis was in command of the Bay City company of the Third Texas during the year spent on the border, resigning to accept the judgeship. A member of a distinguished Texas and Virginia family, popular and experienced as a military man, the other National Guard officers are welcoming him to their midst.

      Judge Lewis is the second judge of his county to respond to the State’s call for volunteers, Major W. S. Holman having been county judge prior to Captain Lewis’ election. Many members of his profession are with the colors.―Houston Post.

The Matagorda County Tribune, Friday, July 20, 1917

 


CAPT. LEWIS HAS ONLY FORTY MEN FOR NEW COMPANY

From Friday’s Daily.

      Judge R. R. Lewis has so far gotten only forty men to enlist for service in the new company he is now organizing. Sixty more are required to complete the company as an army unit. The judge left his afternoon for Lampasas to see what can be done there.

      With the draft system gradually coming on it is to the interest of all young men who are subject to being drafted to consider well the volunteer service, as it is a sure thing that volunteers will fare better than those drafted.

      Judge Lewis has set about to get his company up to 100 and he needs the co-operation of all patriotic people in his efforts, as the company must be formed in one way or another.

THOSE WHO ARE CHOSEN

County to Furnish 106 Men to Be Chosen From 212

      The list which follows has been worked out of the drawing which was in vogue throughout the United States this week. This list contains the first 248 numbers drawn and from these 248 the local board will go as far as it can to draw the county’s quota of 106 fighting men.

      It must be borne in mind, however, that the list we are publishing is a news item, strictly. It is not official nor altogether accurate, but is approximately correct. The master list has not been sent out from Washington, but it is thought when it does arrive that it will be very much in accordance with the one published today.

      The board has three days only to complete the work of drafting the 106 men and some rapid work will have to be done to conform to official orders.
