It is apparent that the Volunteer system As an american institution has gone to the scrap Heap. This is Well for if conscription is to Rule it should be Universal in its application. The a double standards War capable of producing friction As Well As snobbish Ness. Men who had voluntarily entered the military service even though they did so in order to land an easy berth and avoid the trenches were inclined to patronize others who had gone willingly when their turn came. There was the danger too that the South where had been taught to respond without hesitation to their country Scall would furnish More than a just proportion of men thereby crippling Southern Industry. The selective system was adopted because of its Equality and because it was the effective Means for securing an army without working hardships upon any Section. It favored the patriotic and closed the avenues of escape to the shirker. It distributed the War Burden equally Over the entire nation without prejudice and without favor. Under its Workings support for the army was recognized As equally As important As the army. Whatever fault May be found with the draft system is due to the frailties of human nature and not to the system itself. Wholesome diversion in the indispensable antidote to that deadly dullness of mental and physical process matter is which causes inefficiency. It is not far fetched theory that traces a direct relation Between the motion picture Industry and the National Standard of efficiency. If every motion pie Ture theatre in the country were closed then it would be necessary to Institute some other form of amusement to take its place As an important Factor in sustaining the morale of the people. And what substitute could tie suggested it May be asked How we got along before there were any motion pictures. We got along As we did without electric Light and Telephone. And automobiles. Tile old stick in the mud argument a what was Good Eatough for our grandfathers ought to be Good enough for us a Hasni to a leg to stand on. Motion pictures is essential. If the War industries Board had decided differently there would have been cheerful acquiescence in its ruling. But then is cause for congratulation that it was v. Ble to View this question in its right proportions to recognize the absolutely practical form of amusement the Seal of its official endorsement. Meeting of Farmers Union postponed Only minor casualties Are not being reported. Gen. Peyton March chief of stuff in his conversations with newspaper men last saturday Exziar Nad Why the names of Many men known to have been wounded in the fighting in. France have not appeared in casualty lists lie rat cd that the names of some Twenty thousand soldiers who had received Only trivial grounds had not be been sent across owing to the vat amount of detail work involved in the transmission. Tim Public however May rest assured that the casualty lists contain All the information it is entitled to. The severely wounded the killed and the missing will be reported promptly there is in fact a plan now under consideration for reporting major a casualties by Cable to that the relatives and friends on this Side May know the Fate that has befallen their loved Unes As Early As possible. As for the others those who Are in the Hospital but a few Days they can wait. A news is Good news a and failure to hear from the boys across the seas can be taken to mean that they Are Safe and Well or that their condition if wounded is such As to occasion alarm.

Offence said col. Gaedke writing in the German newspaper to Rawerts Sakl a dispatch from Berlin. Of slacker Hunting As a popular pastime. Members of Congress in their vigorous denunciation of the recent a a slacker Hunt in new York voiced the popular verdict against this form of indiscriminate oppression. Not that there is any Public sentiment in favor of the Man who purposely evades miliary duty but because it is in american to arrest thousands of innocent men subjecting them to humiliation and embarrassment merely that a few of the Guiry May not escape. In the new York Ranis unless there has been exaggeration somewhere forty thousand men were taken into custody and All but a few Hundred released.
