Appeals From Local
Draft Board Taken
The local draft board is still busily
kit work re-classitying the draftees
under the later instructions of the Ho
nolulu board. Many in previously de
ferred classes are accordingly being
advanced in the list. The board has
been met with a large number of pro
tests this time from men who claim
xemption for various causes, and
quite a number of appeals will prob-
ibly be taken to the higher board.
Some 25 or 30 men previously dis
qualified for Class 1 for physical de
eds are to be re-exnmiiu'd probably
next week, under modification of the
equirements which will probably
permit them to be Bent into service.
Most of these were left out before
on account of lack of weight or height,
and these requirements now modified
will take in a number of Filipinos
otherwise perfect physically.

neighbor. The trial took place on
Monday. The trouble between the
men arose out of a quarrel between
the children of the two families and
Devauchelle was accused of going to
Aniiren's house and punching him in
the face. Enos Vincent, of Wailuku
acted as special prosecutor.
CONVICT BREAKS JAIL,

gang working in Kula, took French
leave last Sunday night, but was
rounded up the following day by the
police at Keahua camp where he was
attempting to sell a gold watch.
Investigation developed the fact
that after leaving the prison camp,
Rellanuiva visited the home of Joa
quin Vincent, and lifted the watch
from Vincent's clothes by reaching
through an open window to the chair
on which they were placed. The pris
oner was convicted in Kauai and was
