WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. The pos
slbillty that the first increment of the
National Army will not be sent to
mnre tor at least six months loomed
up large today when it became known
that the Allies' demand for food, coal
and iron was so strong as to fore
shadow the use of all available ocean
tonnage for their transportation in
stead of for troops.
The decision on the question will
rest largely on reports to be sent
from the American mission now
abroad and on figures being assem
bled by Food Administrator Hoover
to show the amount of grain and oth
er' food products available for export
in the United States and South Amer
Present Indications are that the
Food Administration believes that the
situation, particularly in England,
Prance and Italy, will force the Unit
ed States to use its ships to send food
Instead of soldiers.
Plans for the second draft would
be affected by the postponement of

Machinery Formally Put in
Operation President Ex
WASHINGTON. Nov. 10. President
Wilson formally put the new machin
ery for the carrying out of the se
lective draft bill into operation to
night with the publication of the
foreword he has written to the regu
lations under which the second call
will be made. The regulations them
selves and the questionnaire which
which more than nine million regis
trants will be required to fill out are
being forwarded to local boards, but
have not yet been made public.
War Department officials estimate
that the whole process can be com
pleted in'slxty days. This means that
no second call will be made upon the
draft forces before the middje of next
February, as the period of classifica
tion will not begin until December 15.
The President describes the new
plan, which divides all registered men
not already mobilized into five classes,
as being intended to produce a more
Derfect organization of our man
"The selective principle must be
carried to Its logical conclusion," the
President said. "There must he made
a complete inventory of the qualifica
tions of each registrant in order to
determine the place in the military,
industrial or agricultural ranks of
the nation in which his experience
and training can be best made to serve
the common good."
The questionnaire will go deep into
the qualificaUons of each man. The
success of the plan and its comple
tion within the estimated time rest
absolutely upon the whole-hearted
support of the people, especially the
doctors and lawyers of eacli com
munity, and the President calls upon
them for their unstinted aid.
Workers of Military Age
Will Be Excused From
Army to Aid Work.
Br Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. Plans to
insure the retention of ship workers
for shipbuilding were announced to
day by Provost Marshal General
Crowder after conferences with of
ficials of the Navy Department and
the Emergency Fleet Corporation.
Regulations for the second call for
the National Army will provide a
specially qualified list for ship work
ers of military age and they will be
excused from service In the National
Army "as long as they are employed
on government ship projects.
Meyer Bloomfleld, head of the in
dustrial service of the shipping board,
said the War Department had agreed
to return to shipbuilding plants any
of the workers who had been drafted.
Lists of these men will be made up
by the yards and by the fleet corpo
ration, and as fast as their names are
sent in the men will be released.
General Crowder said that exemp
tion would end whenever a man was
not actually employed on ship con
struction or listed as needed by the
fleet corporation or the Navy Depart
ment. Under the Provost Marshal's, ruling,
men of military age on strike would
be called for military service imme
diately, but Mr. Bloomfleld held that
the general feeling was that the right
to strike could not be taken from
