French Chamber Passes Bill Alter
Paris, Dec. 1. The bill providing
for the calling to the colors of the
young conscripts of the class of 1917,
a measure recently sanctioned by the
army committee of the chamber of
deputies, provoked a stormy debate
in the chamber yesterday. Premier
Briand participating in the discus
sion. The bill provides for bringing
into the service approximately 400,
000 young men, who in times of peace
would begin military service in 1917,
its members being eighteen and nine
teen years old. The proposal is to
call them on December 15, when they
would be sent to garrisons and then
trained and incorporated in various
regiments and services.
Deputy Turmel, the first speaker,
demanded that the shirkers of mili
tary duty, of whom he raid there wero
no less than 45,000 in Paris, be taken
from their hiding places and sent to
the front before these young men
were called. His words were ap
plauded by socialists and "booed" by

This declaration -was followed by

The premier, continuing, said that
the chamber today was called upon
only to fix the conditions under which
the class should be called and the
hygienic measures to be taken.
M. Turmel insisted on maintaining
his motion. Colonel Driant urged the
chamber to vote down the motion.
His remarks were continually inter
rupted by socialists. Deputy Auriol
demanded that the anti-shirker law,
voted some months ago, be completely
applied and that the government tell
