Green, exe cutive officer of tbe central board of registration, said to jay: "Tne procedure which will be fol lowed In carrying Into effect the pro vision of the selective draft law may be summarized as follows: "First, the registration boards, which auDervinpri th reeistration of July 31, deliver the registration cards, properly sorted by exemption areas, to the local boards and, that duty per formed, the registration boards auto matically pass out of existence. Tbe local exemption board, its cards re ceived, proceeds to number its cards with red inlrln a series running from one to tbe total number of cards In : Its particular jurisdiction. The cards . are not numbered In alphabetical or '. der. The cards when numbered will be listed and the list posted in the headquarters of the board, where it , is open to the inspection of the pub 'lie. Every man subject to the draft should, therefore, as soon as the news papers announce that the lists have been posted, proceed to the Headquar ters of the board in the exemption area In which he lives and find out what his serial number Is. "The 'red Ink numbers,' not tfie registration numbers, are sent to Washington and there they are drawn by lot to determine the order In which registered persons are to be called - by the various local boards. As soon Mas the drafting U completed, lists showing the order in which the red ink numbers have been drawn will ! ill given to the newspapers, and will be posted on bulletin boards in the headquarters of all local boards. As soon as the list Is delivered to the I local board, the board notifies- those who have been drafted to present J themselves for examination. A copy i of the notification will also be posted i i- - - i j -4 m9A a nntlrp via vne uenu4uivci, mailed to each man concerned, oui the posting of the list at the office of the board will be deemed sufficient 1a drafted. 4A, ihia Jhi mau with the duly of jjresentlng- himself before the board. "TV,- low h re filiations State. "rhakes it your duty to inform your self when yoo are called. The mail ing Is for yonr convenience, but if the' Utter nerer reaches you you can not make that in excuse. Watch the lists at the office of your board and see when yon are called for examina tion." The day on wnlch each drafted man Is to report for physical examination wtUte staged, and on that day the man must report. If the person drafted is found, to be physical disqualified the board Mil give him a certificate to that effect If found to be physically nnlalflMl for service, and a claim for -exemption is made within seven days after tha Ait of the c&lL the. Deraon eklnc .exemption wilr be given ten ST . m a. A a days to me ms prooi to support uu claim.

No arguments, oral or oth erwise, are permitted before the board unleps thr board 'call for other proof, which it will do only in a limited num ber of cases.' "Every claim for discharge or er emption will be decided by the board within three days after affidavits are filed, and if the claim is allowed a cer tificate to that effect will be issued. It should be remembered, however, that any certificate of exemption or dis charge may be recalled at any time If the conditions on which the certifi cate Is granted are temporary or con ditional, the certificate becomes of no effect when 'the time or the condition named are fulfilled and when 'the con dition that has postponed your post ing tothe colors ceases you may be re called at any time.' "Retnember, one of Gen. Crowder's official statements reads, that your case may be appealed to the district board by the government, and on this appeal your certificate may be with drawn at once. When so withdrawn you stand precisely as though you had been selected for military service by the local board. Appeal to the District Board "If you claim is disallowed by the local board your name will be certified and sent by the local board to the dis trict board 'as one who has been call ed for military service and who has not been exempted or discharged.' Claims for appeal from the decision of the local board may be made with in ten days after the notice that the claim has been disallowed posted, and mailed to the district board. The forms to be used in all appeals to the district boards will be available at the offices of the local organizations. "The person who appeals to the dis trict board also has five days, after his appeal is. received by the district board, to file additional, evidence in support of his claim, all of this addi tional evidence to be submitted in affi davit form. The decision of the dis trict board most be made within five days of the closing of proof, and the appallent notified by mall of the board's action on the appeal. "As for discharge from the provi sions of tbe selective draft in indus trial grounds, all such claims must be made direct to the district boards. The fcrm to be used in making a claim for d:scharKj on 'industrial grounds' will bo supplied, on application, by the dis trict boards. "The form properly filled, must bo filed with the district board within five daye after the mailing atd post ing of the fact !hat the appMcarfs name has been certified from tap local to the district board as quart! led and eligible for the military service. The district board must make its decision within five days after the closing of proof, and If the decision favors the applicant a certificate of discharge will be Issued. If the decision is ad verse the board will also notify you " Hemember says General Crow ds, tl at yon have besn called for military service, and that the certi ficate of the district board is only con ditional on your remaining in the kind of industrial service on account of which, you were discharged. No such exemption shall continue when a cause therefore no longer exists and your certificate or discharge may be with drawn or modified by the district board at any time that the board shall determine that the circumstances re quire IV NATIONAL GUARD NOTES .
