' CONNECTICUT-MEN - ' - FLOCK TO ARMY. Russians, ; Italians,.' Poles and -Others Among the Latest Recruits. r '; Connecticut men, within the military age are nocking to the- various army recruiting stations- and erub-tations in this etate for the purpose of enlisting in the regular army for the period of the war only, according to a report received at the main office at . Xew Haven. Among the many accepted ap plicants are Russians, Italians. Poles and others. The indications are that the young men-of registration age have decided to join the regular army in stead of running their chances with the draft, which will select 1,000.000 men. Once a man has been selected by the draft, it will be impossible for him to eniist in any service or remain in hte occupation. He must go where the war department assigns him and that will be to the draft camp, where all will be given military training. A new feature of the Registratic! program is that men, of registration age accepted for enlistment in the army prior to June 6th but not actual ly enlisted before that aate must reg ister. ' With over 50,000 men enlisted In the army since April 1, it is expected that this number will be doubled during June, for 100.000 men, are still needed to bring the land" force within war strength. This number does not in clude the 200,000 necessary to bring the National ' guard up to its proper strength. A review of the enlistments made in this state during the last few days, since Memorial day, indicates that re cruiting is speeding up all over the state and that many young men ftave decided to do the. proper thing, that is, enlist voluntarily and serve their coun try. 'With so many splendid oppor tunities awaiting bright young men in Uncle Sam's land forces at this time, the boys are beginning to wake up to their opportunities. Letters re ceived from a number of local boys in the army show that the army pre sents splendid opportunities for young men' who attend to their duties. That the young men between the ages of 21 and 31, the draft age. will have to step lively in the matter of selecting their branch in the army or else face the chances of conscription and become subject to the orders of the war department is indicated in the latest orders from the war department, received by Major W. A. Mercer, com mandant of the Connecticut district, at his headquarters in the army recru?t- ing office at New -Haven. The order states that registration is no bar to enlistment, but men drafted for the federal army cannot be accepted for enlistment in the regular army. Men of registration age accepted for enlist ment prior to June 5th but not actually enlisted before that date must be reg istered. REGISTRATION NO BAR TO ENLISTMENT. Men Who Register Today May Join National Guard Just the Same. Men who register today (Tuesday) for the selective draft may still have the privilege of enlisting in the regu lar army, navy, marine corps or Na tional guard, according to information received by Adjutant General Cole from Chief William A. Mann of the militia bureau. No order stopping vol untary enlistments on June 5 is con templated by the war department. "If a man does not care to register for the draft," said the adjutant gen eral, "let him come to the armory and enlist now. If he desires to enliet, af ter registering, let him come then. There will be as great need of men in the National guard after Registration day as before." The announcement reads as follows: "The secretary of war directs me to inform you that no order stopping vol untary enlistments on- June 5, 1917, is contemplated, and that persons regis tered as required by the selective ser vice law may continue to enlist volun tarily until they have been actually drafted for service under the selective eervice law. These voluntary enlist ments may be in the .regular army navy, marine corps or National guard ootn in and out or the federal ser vice." Mrs. Alice A. R.

NATIONAL BOY SCOUT SHORT TERM CAMPAIGN Every Scout to Save a Soldier Is the Slogan, A National Boy Scout short term campaign will be conducted June 11th, 12th, 13th and 14, simultaneously throughout the country under the' slo gan" "Every Scout to Save a Soldier." The plan involves the distribution of 10,000,000 pieces of printed matter furnished by the Treasury Department explaining the bond issue, containing an application blank addressed to a local bank requesting the allotment of one or more of these bonds, and pro viding a window card for those who agree to subscribe. In co-operation with the local bank ers committees in charge of the bond sales, cities are to be organized into districts and denmte assignments of such districts to troops of scouts and sub-assignments to individual scouts or teams of scouts for a systematic house to house .-canvass under the leadership of the local councils. If each scout and scout official un dertakes during the four days to visit fifty homes, and 200,000 of the mem bers actually do this work, it will mean a personal visit to 10,000,000 homes. It is planned that the Treasury De partment or the Eoy Scouts of Ameri ca will give a war service emblem to each scout and scout official who der initely secures ten applications regard less of the amount. President Wilson's letter authorizing the above program is as follows: My dear Mr. Livingstone: It will be most gratifying to me as Honorary President of the Boy Scouts of America to have the Boy Scouts their scoutmasters and leaders throughout the L'nited States lend their aid to the Secretary ' of the Treasury in distributing applications and securing popular subscriptions .to the Liberty Loan. This will give ev ery Scout a wonderful opportunity to do" his share for his country under the slogan "Every Scout to have a Sol dier." I feel' sure this request will find a unanimous and enthusiastic response from Boy Scouts everywhere. Sincerely yours, WOODROW WILSON. N. F. A. NOTES.
