Gibbons & Company Phone 1191 'Bnlmbral Block Men Nineteen and Twenty Years of Age. ' \ It hay i�ine to the attention of the Government that there is a widespread impression that young men of nmeteer> years, and'tliosc who JDecame twenty since dctpfcer 13, 1917, aa well as those who may become nineteen from time to time and who have been or will be called upon to register under the Military Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours. This impression is quite incpirect. No date has yet been fixed;for calling upon suchmen to so report fdr'duty, nor ^as the question been brought before' the Cabii^et for decision. In-view of the lieed of 1^ the farm, it is most unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after tho harvest is over, although of course the Gpyemment's action must be determined primarily by the military situation. - There is no further obligation .incumbent upon young men of the ages above mentioned who have registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive notice fron^ the Registrars. ^ ' . Harvest Leave. Some enquiries have been recei'v^d as to the possibility of granting harvest leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite aissur-ance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they become available. Op the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all possible. Leave of Absence on Gi^oun^s of Extreme Hai;dship. It is desired that the'Regulations respecting leave of abseneoin cases of hard-, ship should be 'widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted in two cases:- (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father killed or disabled on servibe or presently in seryijce overseas, or ip. training for such service, or imder treatment after'returning-from'overseas; or the only remaining of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other brother or brothers ha-ving been killed or disabled on service, or beitig.presently in service overseas, or in training-for'overseka or under treatment^ after his or their return'from overseas); brothersmaTTied before 4th August, 1914, living in separate establishments and'Having a child or childij6n not to be counted, in determining the fact that the man'is'the "only" remaining son or brotherj (b) where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional ciroumstances such as the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an invalid father or other helples.s dependents.". ^ It is to be noted that in all thesJe cases the governing factor Is^iiot hardship, loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is. members of, his family oi^those depending upon him. Procedure to obtain leave of absence. A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each laattalion has been detailed whose duty it is to give them innnediate attention. The man concerned should on reporting to his unit state that he desires to apply for leave of ibsenco on one or more of tho grounds mentioned and his application form will then be filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. In the meantime, if the case appears meritorious, the man will bo given provisional leave of aljsence for thirty days so that he may return 'houM md continue his civil oC!Cui|�,tibn 'While hia case is being finally disposed of.
