Ford tractor at Princess theatre next saturday nov. 2$ saturday evening the Farmers of Warren co will see at the Princess theatre that they have been looking for during the last two or three years. It will be a moving picture demonstration of the farm tractor that Henry Ford is manufacturing. Several years ago the Ford company announced that it was going to build a general purpose tractor Foi farm use. Experiments have been going since then but not until this time has there been a Ford tractor on the Market. In the meantime Farmers have watched inquired and asked for Ford tractors. Through a special arrangement men of drat age with dependent relatives Are placed in a More secure position under the new regulations to govern future operations of the selective service Law made Public today by Provost marshal general Crowder. While deferred classification under the new plan which replaces All discharge or exemption certificates May be revoked Vohen granted for any Ether cause there is no Way in which men with dependents can be called up for service out of their turn. Added Protection for dependents is secured by the requirement in cases where the registrant seeks to waive his deferred classification status that waivers also must be obtained from those dependent upon him before he can be taken into the military service. The effect of the regulations is to close the ranks of the army Navy or Marine corps absolutely to men Between 21 and 31 years old where they have dependents who would suffer if they went to the front. Local boards Are constituted judges of All such cases. For the first time also a Way is provided in which men physically unfitted for front line duty in the army and yet Able to do some part of the work of a Soldier May be called for limited military service behind the lines. Partial physical exemptions May be granted by local boards to create this new classification. The most noteworthy changes in the regulations outside of the creation of an emergency Fleet to permit ship workers to remain at their jobs Are As follows quot local boards Are granted virtually judicial Powers to summon witnesses and obtain information. Local police will see that any witness responds. A definite program of correspondence Between the boards state of to care for the wife and children i a no la air orm of the enlisted Man during hissed Lippi f Yah k in l ii vice the War insurance Law com a a quot uis ulv Pels him to contribute up to one half of his pay for their support. The government on application will generously add to this an allowance of from $5 to $50 a month according to the size of the family. More Over if the enlisted Man will make some further provision himself for a dependent Parent brother sister or grandchild they May be included in the govern Merit allowance. If As a result of injuries incurred or disease contracted in the line of duty an officer or enlisted Man or an army or Navy nurse should be disabled provision is made for compensation of from $30 to $100 a month to him and should he die compensation of from $20 to $75 a month will be paid to his wife his child or his widowed Mother. In order however fully to protect each person and family Congress has made it possible for every Soldier Sailor and nurse to obtain life and total disability insurance. This insurance applies to injuries received while he or she is in the service or after he or she shall have left it. Exposure to the extra dangers of War makes the Cost of life insurance in private life insurance companies prohibitive. It was therefore a Plain duty and obligation for the government of assume the risk of insuring hundreds of thousands of our soldiers and sailors who Are making the supreme sacrifice. Under this Law every Soldier and Sailor and nurse commissioned and enlisted and of any age has the right Between now and february 12, 1918, to take out life and total disability insurance up to $10,000 at very Low Cost with the government without medical examination. This right is purely optional. The soldiers and sailors Are not compelled to take insurance but if they desire to exercise the right they must do so before the 12th of february 1918. The Cost ranges from 65 cents monthly at the age of 21, to $1.20 monthly at the age of 51, for each ,000 of insurance. This is a Small charge on a Man s pay Small in proportion to the benefits it May bring. The premiums will be deducted from his pay if he desires thus eliminating trouble on his part. To provide adequate Protection until february 12, 1918, during the j Pla fied to take or. Palin to ail lated throughout the county for the Benefit of those absent from the meeting 1. We recommend that the Corn be left on the stalk As Long As Possi ble. 2. In Case the Corn should have to be husked it should be husked reliable data from the Bureau of crop estimates of the u. S. Department of agriculture shows that not More than 20 per cent of the Indiana Corn crop is suitable for seed. In other words Only 40,000,000 bushels of the 200,000,000 crop can be used for seed purposes. This Means that Many farms from some counties show that they will have very Little or no seed. With this condition existing in Indiana and other Middle Western states Farmers of \ this county must act at once if they Are to have seed for the 1918 crop. The government working through Purdue University realizing the seriousness of the seed Corn situation has sent or. Fred c. Palin to this county to work out a plan with local people to get a line on All the Well matured seed Corn in this county. At a meeting called monday afternoon at the court House the following men were present to work out plans to find seed Corn in this county if possible Lee Vanreed Milton Keister Jack Hile of Stewart de. Hobart j. K. Chambers Fred Bowman Ulrick Hunter Harley Kisling will Marlatt or. Martin of Pence and several others. Or. Palin explained How he thought this important work could be accomplished. With the help of local men he thought it would be possible to go into All parts of the county and inspect the Corn Fields. He Hopes to list All these Well matured Fields and then publish the names of men. Who have this seed so that other Farmers who do not have seed May know where to get it. He urged that where Farmers do not have seed that they should arrange to get it As soon As possible since very few men Are equipped for storing a very Large amount. Farmers who have seed should not be asked to hold it. The men present at the meeting 3. In Case the Corn should be husked it should be in As Well ventilated cribs As possible. The ventilation recommended is a partition one foot wide running through the Center and Lengthwise of the crib. 4.

The order was issued by the interstate Commerce commission in order to conserve the use of open cars for purposes vital to the conduct of the War. Contractors engaged in adjoining county Road work Are said to be devoting their energies to finishing up jobs before Winter sets in and cannot count on Many More weeks of working weather but will be to a great extent hampered by the order in their plans for having materials hauled on the ground during the Winter months in preparation for resuming activities next Spring. Under the ruling of the commission and in accordance with an act of Congress material for the construction or repair of Public highways during the period of the War is not considered essential and is barred from shipment. The Law became effective november 1.
