New draft regulations postponing the physical examination of the remaining 7,000,000 draft registrants until they Are called for military service and assigning the men to five classes thus determining the order of their Call to the colors were announced by Provost marshal Gen. Chowder recently. Under the new regulations it will be possible for a registrant to determine whether he will be called in the first 500,000 additional men to be summoned the second 500,000 or later contingents. The changed system will reduce the labors of local boards by 80 per cent by reversing the present process of first conducting physical examinations and then hearing exemption claims. Hereafter All economic questions will be settled before the physical examination is held. Five classes of draft registrants Are established approximately As follows first men with absolutely no dependents. Second skilled farm labourers or others slightly less available for military service than the first class. Third skilled labourers and men whose work is deemed vital in War industries. Fourth married men with children whose families Are wholly dependent upon them for support. Fifth cripples mental defectives and Hose specifically exempted from military service. Registrants will be assigned to one of these classes from detailed information they furnish local boards in reply to a detailed form of questions Sti omitted to them. They have the right to Appeal to be placed in a lower class. After such appeals Are passed on by the District Board or if no Appeal is made their status is officially fixed. Thereafter when Call is made for the second 500,000 under the present draft Law local boards will fix quotas and fill their quotas completely from class 1, starting with class 2 Only when the first class is wholly exhausted. The men needed to fill each quota will then present themselves for physical examination. The order in which the men Are fixed in their classes will be the same order in which they now stand in the ability list under the draft drawing conducted last on War president Wilson has led the people of the United states into the maelstrom of the european conflict.
