GIVEN FINAL DIS('IIAIGE
Provost Marshal Generi Issues 1on
orable Discharges to Members of All
After nearly two years of servIce as
Members of the i rens 'County Board
of the Selective Service System, more
commonly known as the "Local Board"
-Messrs. C. A. Power, A. 'C. Todd and
Dr. J. 11. Teague have received their
final discharges from service, given up
the vestments of oflice and retired to
privat, lifM, in so far as that board is
c. neerned. 'Ticy received their hon
orable disChiarges from Provost Mar
shal General Crowder Monday, though
they had practically been relieved of
board work for some time. The board
as originally constituted was compos
ed of the present governor of the
state, Hon. R1. A. Cooper, Mr. Power
and Dr. Teague. Gov. Cooper gave up
the duties of the board in the spring
of 191S to take un duties in connection
with ithe Li'erty Loan campaign. He
was, succecded by 'Mr. A. 1C. Tudd who
remained a member until the end.
The letter of Provost Marshal Gen
eral Crowder to the members of the
Local Board was as f .lows:
Washington, ). C.,
April 6th, 1919.
To Members of all Selective Service
The President has directed that all
boards of the Selective Service System
'be discontinued; that all members
thereof be honorably released from the
duties of their respective offices effec
tive March 31st, 1919, and that a cer
tificate of service be issued to mem
bers released from duty by the order
above mentioned. A copy of the or
dei is enclosed. A suitable certifleate
of service countersigned by the Gov
ernor of your State, will be transmit
ted to you at later date.
The Selective Service organization is
dissolved. This is my last oficial
communiation to its members. Two
years ago today, the Congress declared
a state of war to exist with the Im
perial German Government. America's
Army was hut a handfpil. The plan
to raise it to the proper strength was
inchoat and uncertain. Today the war
is won, and ani army of four million is
already half demobilized.
You have performed a stupendous
task, you have performed it loyally,
unselfishly and well. But you have
done more, you have the groundwork
for a new ideal in democracy. You
have taught and shown the value and
the possibilities of sympathetic and
understanding co-operation. You have
discovered and vindicated a now altru
isi; you have crystallized an ideal
and made of it a system.
in these closing words, I add my
heartfelt praise to the grateful thanks
E. H1. Crowder,
Provost M1arshall General.
