voting precinct in which he resides.
He goes on about his business.
2. After a delay of several weeks,
perhaps a month or more, he is noti
fied by the War Department either
that he has been exempted from aer
vice or that he has been selected. If
the latter, he is told when and where
3, He reportsq at the time and place
designated, is given his equipmentl
and transported to at concentratiorn
In case he believes he should have
been exempted and was not, he is
- entiled to carry his cgse to the local
federal court for settlement.'
the Ages of 21 an

hat roads will be built in those comn
nunities where the people show a spir
>f co-operation by giving free right-of
vays and top soil. Where top soil is
taken it will make the land practically
aseless for planting for one year, but
tLhe county will plow the land fifteen or
eighteen inches deep, and it is said that
in one year the land will be just as good
and in many instances better than before
top soil was removed. So it rests
greatly with the people as to where
most of the roads will be built.
The commission has not yet decided
whether the roads will be built by con
tract or by hired labor. Hoth plans will
