Expect to Register ' For War Under New Law ; Washington, Aug. 31.-Thursday, fiept. 12, was �ei today hy President Wllsoa AS the date of registration for the army draft of all men in the United States between tho ngcs of IS and 45, inclusive, who have not airpariy registered, or who are not now in ihe military or nsvnl services. In a proclamiitlon issued immediately after he signed the new man power bill authorizing extension of the 21-:U drait ages, the president called on the younger and older men to enro'i on that day wlt4> local draft hoards �where they make their permanonl homes. "We solemnly purpose a decisive victory of Hrras." said the president, "and deliberately to devote the larger part of tho military man power of the nation to the accomplishmenl of that purpoie. Call to Duty ' "It is the call to dntj'to which every true man in the country will respond With pride and with the conscious-nesB that in doing so he plays! ins part in vindication of a ^reat cause ht whose summons every true heart dfters in supreme service," The hours of registration will he from T- a.m. to !> p.m. and all state and local officials are called on to make immediate arrangements for maintenance of the registration on that day. _ All men witliin the new ages, whether citizens of the I'nited States or not, m\ist register, unless they are diplomatic or consular representatives of foreign nations. At least 10,000,000 men will place themselves to call for war service under tlie new registration, if. is estimated, although only those without de pendents, in good health and otherwise qualified for the arduous duty of soldier lite are to be taken first.

It is a spirit that will not be hidden bejiind clouds. It scintillates through the shadowy mist of war until it finds its way into the simshino of taugiblo expression. ^ So, if is not to be wondered at that, we find tho children of Paris, home of the Heaux arts, giving expression to their ardent young patriotism and passion in a series of war pictures as touching as any that have been produced since tho Germans first thundered down towards Paris four ycirs ago. M. Victor Boref. French Jlinister of Food, happened to see some of the war pictures that the school children had done. Ho had an inspiration! It took more than othcial command to get the full sympathy of tho people at large for any cause. It took a littlo sentiment, .something to touch tho heart and mind. Yes indeed, here was a wonderful opportunity to reach everyone-to make known to all the people of France and of the Allies how flnK In hia mouth, prostimnbly reeling off the following appeal to hIa mistress to ftlvo him soup made from leftovers Instoid of meat.

CZECHS MUTINV �U'nshington, Afig;. ;!0.-Czecho-Slo-vak crows on Austro-Hungarian warships in the harbor of Cattaro have revolted, according to a dispatch today from France. Tho Czecho-Slovak deputy, JI. Soultup, is said to have left Prague. for Cat'taro to defend the steamers in their courts martial. Ready^'School Opening Splendid lines that will appeal to the girls and boys at values that will appeal to parents. the little Parisians felt about the Tvar; how it was affecting them, and, indeed, all the children of France. He thought It would be an education for the young oflos, too. They would transmute their emotions into terms that all might uitderstand. They would impart freshness, naivete and zeal to conservation propaganda through the medium of pictorial art. So M. Boret enlisted tho aid of JI. Paul Simons, chief of the drawing masters of Paris, and he told him that he wanted those youngsters to give France the benefit of the thoughts that lurked untlerneath their perky little bonnets and the skill that lay behind I their pencils. Accordingly, young Paris was asked to draw conservation pictures- conservation of everything from petrol to soup bone.';. Young Paris got busy, and before long M. Boret was the gratified victim of hundreds of drawings and paintings. Tliore seemed no end Success is Never a Matter of Chance LUCK is invariably the result of study and of hard work.
