- How Germans Attack.
It has frequently been stated of late
that the German troops attack in mass
formation even in the face of machine
gun and shell fire, a policy little short
of suicidal under conditions of modern
warfare. A Dutci army officer who
has been an observer on the . -front]
says that this is not strictly so. Hie
. states that the attack has the appear-1
ance of a mass attack because it is
composed of successive waves of in
fantry. The rear- waves are kept in1
close formation to heighten the morale
of the troops, burt the attack is not
a mass attack, strictly speaking. The
Germans charge in close order wh'len
they have located what they consider
the weak spot in the line of defense.

ISSUED BY WILSON
PREPARATIONS FOR MOBILIZA
TION HAVE ADVANCED AN
Proces of Select'on Will Likely Not
Be Made Known Until Drafting
Time is Near.
Washington.-Preparation for the
mobilization of the first contingent of
625,00 troops of the new national army
advanced another step when President
Wilson promulgated the regulations to
govern exemptions from military ser
vice. In the order in which they must
come there are three steps in the or
ganization process of the national army
as prescribed by Congress. They are
registration, selection and exemption.
The first step has been carried
through. The regulations issued cover
in detail the operation of the third
Information concerning the second
step in the series is still lacking, and
officials are guarding closely the meth
od by which selection is to be applied.
The exemption regulation announc
ed that the boards will be advised of
the selection process later, although
none of the steps prescribed except
the organization of the boards can be
carried out until the selection machin
ery has furnishel the names of the
men whose fitness and desirability for
army service the boards are to judge.
There is one hint as to how the selec
tion machinery is to work.
The local boards are directed upon
organization to take over from the reg
istration . precincts the cards and lists
of the men registered on June 5, and,
as their first duty, to provide a serial
number for each registration card.
This has given support to the belief
that the selection is to be by number
Reports were current recently that the
selection drawing was to be made in
May Delay Announcements.
Presumably the process of selection
will be announced only a short time
before it is put in operation. When
:hat will be is not known. September
t has been the tentative date set for
falling the 625,000 of the first contin
ent to the colors for training. Prog
ess with construction of the sixteen
livisional cantonments for the troops
will govern the action. It is believed
here will be no serious delay.
The exemption process will not take
n great deal of time. It is difficult to
ralculate the time the local boards will
needin passing on the cases that come
before them. The regulations provide
that decision in any individual case
shall not be delayed more than three
lays by the local board, or an addi
tional five days when appeal is taken
to the district boards. The whole pro
aess probably can be carried through
In less than thirty days.
There were no surprises in the ex
'mption regulations. The task of pass
ng upon the individual cases is left
mtlrely to the local boards. While the
President reserves the right to desig
iate industries necessary for the pub
ic good, the question of whether re
ention of any individual engaged in
hose industries is essential is left to
In a statement accompaning the
nnjouncenment of the regulations, the
'resident. called upon the boards to

To Post Names.
Upon organizing, the local boards
will take over from the registration
boards, all registration cards, whicn
they will number serially and list for
posting to public view. Then, after
having been advised of the method by
which the order of liability for ser
vice shall be determined and of the
quota to be drawn from its territory
(minus credits for enlistments in the
national guard or regular army) each
board will prepare a list of persons
designated for service in the order of
their liability, ,post the list, give it
to the press and within three days
send notice to each designated person
"As the men so notified appear, the
boards first will make a physical ox
amination in accordance with special
regulations to be provided, bearing
in mind that all persons accepted by
them will be re-examined by army
surgeons. If the physical examina
tion is passed successfully, then comes
the question of exemption.

The reformation under Hezekiah is
one of the bright and attractive spots
in the latter history of the kingdom of
Israel. It was a most thorough refor
mation and God set his seal upon it
in many wonderful ways. Teachers
ought to give their classes a comp'e
hensive view of all that liezekiah did,
as recorded in II Chron., chapters
I. Hezekiah's Proclamation. (wv.
1-0). The proper introduction to this
lesson would he to return to chapter
twenty-nine and note the restoration
of the worship of Jehovah. how it
began in one man's heart, Ilezekinh;
how he called the people to be clean
(29:15), then called upon a cleansing
of the house of God and its restoration
(vv. 18, 19). How he called them to
renewed sacrifice 1111 worshIp (vv.
20, 21). The restoration of the sin

ompanies a true revival of religion.
[-aving consecrated themselves unto
the Lord, Hezekiah sends out this
)roclamation. The consecration of the
;eople, as referred in chapter 29, was
very complete. (See vv. 31-30.) Heze
diah was a man of deep discernment
is well as of true piety. He saw the
neaning of the sacrifice of redemption
ind put the passover forward as the
very heart-center of the worship of
fehovah. (See vv. 1, 2.) Whoever un
lerstands the passover, understands
Sod's way of salvation. (See Exodus
12:13-23; I Cor. 5:7, 8; Ron. 8:25, 26;
fohn 1:29.) Hezekiah did not confine
is call to those of Israel alone, but
Ixtended it beyond its borders to those
)f Ephraim, thus manifesting the true
missionary spirit. Hezekiah had am
ple Scriptural warrant keeping this
passover out of its regular order (vv.
9-18). God is not a God of time or
place. Wherever obedience is possible,
whether it be a matter of time or not,
God approves. Hezekiah, however,
did not act upon his own initiative,
but sought counsel. (See v. 2.) The
man who is the most clearly led of
God is the man who is most eager and
anxious to know how God is leading
other men and \will listen most patient
ly to their counsel. The fact that the
people had not "gathered themselves.
together at Jerusalem" for a long
time, might have warranted a fur
ther delay. Not so with this enthusi
istie young king, Hie was not bound
by precedent, but was anxious to
ii. Hezekiah's Exhortation (vv. 7
13). Hlezekiah began his exhortation
)y calling attention to tihe trespasses
f their fathers (v. 7). At the same
time he reminds the'm that if God gave
them over to desolation because they
themselves were stiff-necked (v. 8)
'Ind yielded not themselves unto the
Lord to enter his sanctuary, which he
liad sanctified unto them, they wiould
c'ome under the fierceness of God's
wrath, for they had turned from the
Lord ; they hnd "'tresr'i d tganinst thlet
Lord God of their fathers." Because
of that trespass God had "given them
up to desolation." Literally he had
madle them "an astonishment." This
astonishment and desolation was well
known, "ias ye see" (v. 7). Anyone
with eyes open enn see today the deso
lation of individuals, of families, com
munities andI nations who trespass
against God. For a generation we
have had the deity of Christ and the
inspiration of his Word called into
question aind that the individual man
is the dicetator of his own conscience
and life, and It is because men have
departed from their faithful allegiance
to Jesus Christ and fail to obey his
command, that we Bee the strife and
desolation of today.
The first departure caused people to
be "stiff-necked" nnd Jehovah is call
ing them to repentance, but they would
not hear (see- Ch. 86:13; Er. 32:9;
Rtom. 10:21). Ia place of this "stiff
neckness" of their hearts Hiezeklnh
entreats them to turn again to the
Lord andI not to he stiff'-necked1 as were
their fathers (v. 8), that if they will
trn again unto the Lord (v. 9) they
will find comptission so that they shaull
