Facts About the Draft
The drafting of men fort ho army
of the United States is at our door,
and considerable regular business is
now being suspended by some- to
help the government.
Ix-st the notice will have escaped
some registrants, a circular letter,
a copy of which is here printed, is
being sent to the plantation mana
gers and employers to instruct their
employees what to do.
To assist the selective1 draft which
takes place on this Island for a
period of 20 days beginning Jan. 7,
191S, you are respectfully requested
to notify all those in your employ
who registered under the Selective
Draft Act on July ol, 1!U7, to re
port to their precinct headquarters
immediately after obtaining the
Questionaires which shall be mailed
to them, for instructions how to
fdl the same. The chief registorer

quested to notify all those who
entered your employ since July 81,

said Act on said day in another
precinct, to write to the Postmas

at the time they registered to mnil
their questionaires to them. Hav

to the nearest precinct headquar

to the draft understand the import
of the matter and, considering the

Letters from Paris betray an
noyance and alarm at the numbei
of American women established
nothing and can do there who do
little or nothing to justify their
presence. Some are young and in
experienced, some, are already ad
vanced in years, and all are equally
perplexing to the practical French
mind, which never loses its sense
of proportion. We have, indeed,
sent over to France trained, capable
and zealous women, who went be
cause there was work for them to
do, and who have done -it with all
their strength and with all their
intelligence. Of those women,
many of whom have been decorated
for valor, for devotion, - for noble
ami beautiful benevolence, the
country feels legitimately proud.
In justice to them, as well as to
our ally, we should hold sternly
back the useless ami unwise.
