District registrars, he said, had been notified to call up men unmarried, between 20 and 22 years, inclusive. The instructions were that men from urban centres should be called first so that the men on the farms might have an opportunity to conclude their seed'-ing operations. Up to April 2!). the number of men who had reported for service under the Military Service Act. was 39,208. Prom these must be deducted 2.063 who had gone to the Royal Flying Corps.

General Mewburn explained that all men called were required to report. It was regrettable that some of these m-en should have to journey long dis-tances'only to be placed in a medical category lower than "A," but the department required them to report as an evidence of good faith.
