WESTERLY READY FOR DRAFT
Town's Quota Under Probable Conditions State to Change
Auto Registration Plates Annually High School Loses
to Peace Dale, 7 to 8 John Geary Drowned at Stonington.
Under the provisions of the selective
draft act approximately 59,599 men
residents of Rhode Island, between the
ages of 21 to 30, inclusive, will enroll
in accordance with the act. In order
to simplify the task of the men who
are to have charge of the actual en
rollment Governor Beeckman will pro
claim a school holiday on the day
when the - young men must register,
and the schoolhouses will be used as
centres for the work. A large .per
centage of thoso who are enrolled will
not be subject to the draft on account
of the exemptions for married men,
those with dependent families or en
gaged in occupations vital to the sus
tenance or military efficiency of the
army and navy.
The details for filling the state's quo
ta has not Jeeh worked out, but it is
quite probable that each city and town
will be called upon for a number equi
valent to the percentage that the pop
ulation bears to the population of the
state, and that Rhode Island's quota
will be from 3,000 to 5,000 men. In or
der to obtain the percentage the pop
ulation of the city or town is divided
by the total population of the state
which was 595.986 in 1915. -With the
percentage fixed It is a comparatively
simple matter to figure out the num
ber of men from each city or town for
any definite quota- Thus, if 3,000 men
are called for multiply the percentage
by 30 (one per cent, of the total quo
ta) to find the number of men to be
drafted. If 5,000 men are called mul
tiply by 50.
Under this plan Westerly with a
population of 10,175, would have an
enrollment of 1018, and under a 3,000
quota would furnish 51 men, and un
der a 5,000 call S5 men. Hopkinton's
call would be 12 and 21. Charlestown
4 and 7, Narragansett 7 and 12, North
Kingstown 20 and 33, Richmond 7 and
12, South Kingstown 27 and 46. The
quota of Providence would be 1250 and
20S9, Pawtucket 276 and 461, Newport
152 and 264, Central Falls US and 197,
Cranston 135 and 225, Wonnsocket 200
and 334, West Greenwich 3 and 4. and
so on throughout the state on the same
After many years Rhode Island is to
fall into line and have changed au
tomobile registration plates annually
and along the progressive lins, the
plates bearing the year numerals.
Heretofore the plates bore the regis
tration number and the initials R. I.
and were of the same type year in
and out. These new plates will be re
quired on and after January 1, 1918.
They will be made of open hearth steel
and coated with elastic ?ieycle ena
mel thoroughly baked. The background
will be black with figures and letters
The plates will be made in four
sizes, automobile, truck, dealers and
trailer being" 6x12, 6x10 and 6x8 inches,
depending upon the number of numer
als and letters to be carried. All mo
torcycles and motorcycle side-car
plates will be 4 1-2x8 inches.
The registration numerals and let
ters on the plates of 6 -inch height will
be 3 1-2 inches high and have a stroke
of one-half inch. The "R. I." and nu
merals in the year date will be 1 1-4
inches high and will have a stroke of
The larger numerals and letters on
the motorcycle and the side-car .plates
will be 2 1-2 inches high and will have
a stroke of one-quarter inch. The "R.
I." and year numerals will 'be 1 inch
high with a one-eighth inch stroke.
The pleasure car plates will carry
only numerals to designate the regis
tration number. Trucks, as at pres
ent, will have the prefix "x" as now.
Each dealer will have numbers with
letter affixes for the drivers. The mo
torcycle plate will be distinguished by
a prefix "B" and the motorcycle side
cars will have the prefix "K."
The contract provides that tne sev
eral sizes of plates shall be furnished
at. the following .prices: 6x12 inches at
10 1-2 cents a plate; 6x10 inches at 10
cents a plate; 6x8 inches at 9 1-2 cents
a plate, and the 4 1-2x8 inches at 8.8
cents a plate. Miscelalneous plates,
that is, duplicates and extra plates,
will cost 50 cents each.
The first plates will be furnished to
motorists free, but all replacements
will be charged for at the rate of 50
cents .per plate.
Owing to the increase in the cost of
road construction, materials and labor,
the state board of public roads for
Rhode Island has rejected all bids for
reconstruction work, the price of such
work having increased $10,000 a mile
over last year. The board will main
tain the existing system of highways
in the best manner possible. General
repair work will be carried out dur
ing the working season. It is the
opinion of the board, that the roads
of bituminous macadam construction

Orders have not been received as yet
by the Rhode Island physicans who
have received commission in the Unit
ed States Medical Reserve Conps to

physicians awaiting orders are Drs.
John Champlin of Westerly, Ira Hart
Noyes, Harmon P. B. Jordan of Provi
dence, Peter L. Keough, Charles U.
Holt of Pawtucket and Charles S.
Christie of Riverpoint. It Is probable
that these physicians will not be or
dered into, service until the selective
draft is in operation, and it will be
several months before they are ordered
into actual service.
