False Impression Corrected.
?Some persons are under the im
pression that a registrant who has a
wife and children should not be
given deferred classification by a
local board if a relative will,.con
tribute to the support of the depen
dents should the registrant be
drafted for military service. The
regulations plainly state that case
of dependent wife and children
support from other sources should
NOT be considered.
The local board has completed
the classification of all question
naires that have been returned.
Some of the colored registrants who
have not yet received questionnaires
are being located everv day. The
board appreciates the co-operation
which has been given by a number
of citizens over the county in loca
ting registrants who seldom receive
mail, and for that reason cannot be
located by the mail carriers. Up
to this time, not including the ques
tionnaires that have not been deliv
ered to registrants, the board haa
placed about 4t?u registrants in class
one, this being about 30 per cent.
These men will be examined next
week. Examinations were com
menced last Friday, but owing to
the issuing of new regulations for
the physical examination, General
Crowder telegraphed the local
boards to hold up on the examina
tions until the new regulations were
received. The men who were noti
fied to appear for examination last
Monday will report next Monday;
those who were notified to report
to-day will report next Wednesday,
[and those who have been notified to
report Friday of this week for ex
lamination will report Friday of
next week. Other registrants will
i be ordered to report Tuesday,
I Thursday and Saturday of next
week also, which will enable the
board to examine all of the men in
Class I next week.
The remainder of the present
quota will be ordered out during
the live days following February
23. It has not been announced
what day Edgefield will mobilize
men for Camp Jackson. This
county is yet due 102 colored men
on its first quota. The local board
had this number of men ready for
mobilization in October, but they
were never ordered out. The men
will receive notice what day to re
port for mobilization.

markable success throughout the South. It enriches the soil, furnishes the plant
with soluble and available food until maturity and improves the quality and quantity
of the crop. If you are getting less than one to two bales to the acre-try Planters
