The, first class will Include, roughly, single inou without dependents, dependent married men, married men not usefully engaged, un-slfllled laborers, and all not otherwise classified. The second cias^ includes married men with wives or children not wholly dependent upon their labor for support, and married men whose wives are skilled In some special class of work which they are pliyslfcally able lo,perform and in which they are either employed or In which they can easily obtain employment and' support themselvtes without suffering or hardship. Necessary skilled farm laborers and skilled Industrial laborers hre also IncIiidoU In this class, provided they are engaged in necessary enterprises. Tho third class Includes those upon whom rests the reBponslblllty of caring for helpless dependents, sucli as rfihlldren, infirm parents, or helpless brotherss and sisters, 'highly traiuud firemen or policemen, certain necessary oinployeoB of the federal govern-mont, managers oc assistant managers of necessary ugricultufal or,. Industrial ontorprlaes, and technical or mechanical exports whoae\aorvlcos are also ot vital necessity, III the fourth class are to bo found men whose wives or children are mainly dependent oh their labor for support, mariners actually employed In sen service, and thd>necoasary solo dl. reeling head ot necessary ogrlcultural or Industrial enterprises, . ' Class five Includea lUo legislative, oxftcutlvo, or judicial oftlcors of tho United States, the individual iStatos, tho TorritorieB, and tho District ot Coluinhla. It inritudes ordained niln-IsterB, certain divinity students, those already in the military or naval sor-vloe o� the United States, and men peimanontly unfit tor military service hecauao of mental or phyaical diBablli-lies. It also includea licenaod pilots nctivdly employed and meinbova of a well-rocognlzed I'ollgtouH sect or or- What the Press Agents Say ganization whose ore^d iforblds Us members to participate In any -way in war. This fittli class is obviously intended to include all those whom the'government desires absolutely lo exempt from the provisions of the Draft Law, even though tho fifth class Is not classified yas exempt, but mei-ely in the class whose call will |)o longes't deferred. The curious "juxtaposition ot ministers and those morally or inen-tally.unflt tor military service affords an interoatlng commentary on the legal provision which practically exempts clergymen from all kinds, ot military ,service. It would-''perhaps have Mben wiser it the government liad treated ministers as it has treated doctors, and medical students, that Is, provided that their talents might bo used in a way. to help the government to the . best possible advantage. Many young ministers would luake, as many lire making, the best kind ot workers in the Y.MjC.A. shacks hero and abroad.' Why exempt these trained men from all service, while at the same timo we require medical students and doctors'elther to join the medical roBflrve or to serve in the army? . The individual questions by wlilch the oxliaustive classification will bo rtelormined require tho most carotul attention on the part ot those who' must answer th^in,-but the questions are all reasonable, and. should provide tho government with exactly tho,' Information it  desires.- A trt'lcal example of tho card with which this questionnaire has been developed is afforded by the group of quostlona dealing with agricviltural labor, These questions are e.NDocted to indicate wliothor a farm laborer Is nocessiii'y to tlie farm where ho works, and whether his work itself is useful or merely dovoted to xhe upkeep of some nonproductive , country estate; and further, in case such an estate is worlced as a farm, whether it represents an agricultural oiilerprise ot value to the country. > � Tho operation of the Selective Draft Law under the present regulatlouB will proljoct the country from tho miauao of its skilled labor bo far ua the draft reglatianta are concerned, N�� effort Iias' boon matlo, so far ua yb ^now, however, to prevent akllled, laborers, such as Hhlpbullders and mechanics, from volunteering tor the war (n elth--or tho iirniy or the navy. It la pWttapa unfortunate that the same teats now being applied to tho selected jjion could not luvve been applied ,to,tho voluntcora. ^. '' AT THE MAJESTIC No play ever written has greater heart interest for all kinds and classes Of people than "Mrs. Wiggs of tho Cabbage Patch" which comes to the Majestic next Friday and Saturday, Fob. Sth and 9lli, and it is this unusual quality that gives this play an everlasting existence. Specially people who have seen it look forward to seeing It agal^i. Tlio mingling humor and pathos, quaint philosophy of Mrs. "Wlggs, the efforts of the children to make flio best of the rather hard life aboiitthem, all leaves such memories of great, ontertalnmonl that ono longs to a^e the play again and again. IRISH PLAY A SUCCESS I AT THE MAJESTIC Few shows presented here in recent years liave the charm of '"The' Isle O' Dreams," which opened an oiigage-mont at the JIajostio Theatre lust night.
