POLLING PLACES TO BE USED All Persons Within -the Age -Limits "- Prescribed by the Law Must Pre- I sent Themselves There Gover nors of States at Head of Registration Work. Washington. With the object of stimulating publicity to the work of raising the military forces called for under the army draft law the war de partment has Issued the following in structions; which will govern the work: There was a time in the coun try's history when military enumerators, backed by bayo nets, went out among the people to take .a compulsory service census. Today, under the prin ciple of universal liability to service, the execution of the ' law is put into the hands of the people. ry tf rtjtjjt ffirryyjjjy yjyy y jgt jyjfjiyjyjy The - approval of the new national army bill and the president's proclama tion thereunder have been coincident. All persons within the age limits pre scribed are required to present them selves for registration at the customary voting places In the voting precincts in which they have their permanent homes, on a day which the president will announce. The governor of each state Is the chief of registration therein. The ma chinery jof registration in each county is in charge of the sheriff, the county clerk, and the county physician, act ing ex officio, unless a different board shall be announced by the governor. In cities containing populations of more than 30,000, the registration will be under the control of the mayor and se lected boards of registration. In order that the designated county and city officials, and the people generally, can get a clear understanding of the cen sus methods the following brief out line is given : The sheriffs, or other designated "offi cials. Immediately upon receiving no tice from the governor, shall appoint registrars for each voting precldct.' Apportionment of Registrars. The proportion of registrars shall be one for each 170 persons to be regis-' tered. Each age to be registered will comprise about 1 per cent of the popu lation. If, for instance, all men between nineteen and twenty-five years of age, inclusive, are to be registered, the reg istrar would have to enroll about 7 per cent of the precinct population. It is desirable to accept the services of competent volunteer registrars to serve without compensation. All reg istrars must be sworn. The voting place in each precinct must be prepared for registration. Full printed Instructions covering every de tail of registration will be In the hands of sheriffs and mayors on the fifth day after the president's proclamation. Cities of Over 30,000 Population. . The mayor of a city containing more than 30,000 inhabitants, or the officials designated by the governor therein, shall, with approval of the governor, appoint for each ward or convenient minor subdivision containing about 30, 000 people one registration board, and shall designate one officer of each board to perform duties similar to those Imposed on the sheriff, as here tofore outlined. If the mayor desires, he may appoint a central board to co ordinate the work of minor boards. Duties of County- Clerks, and of Clerks of Cities of Over 30,000 People. On the fifth day after the president has issued his proclamation, clerks of counties and cities of over 30,000 must secure a supply of blanks and copies of the registration regulations from the sheriff or from the mayor. Absen tees and the sick will apply to such clerks to have their registration cards filled out. In no case, shall such per sons be given registration certificates. They are to-be instructed by the clerk that the burden Is on them to see to It that the cards reach the registrars of their home .precincts by registration day. Absentees and the Sick. Persons absent from their home counties may be registered by mail. If so absent, a man should go to tbe clerk of the county where he may be staying, on the sixth day after the date of the president's proclamation. If he is in a city of over 30.000 population, the city clerk Is the official to whom to apply. The absentee will be told how to reg ister, but he must mail his card in time to reach his precinct by registra tion day. Persons too sick to present them selves for registration must send a competent person to the county or city clerk on the sixth day after the Is suing of the proclamation. The clerk will give Instructions for registration. Colleges, Universities, Homes and Oth er Institutions. - Officials of educational, charitable and other institutions should apply for Instructions to the county or city clerk on the sixth day after the data of the proclamation for Instructions as to convenient method of registration. The wardens of Jails, penitentiaries and reformatories should apply to Uu county or city clerk for Instructions o the sixth day. Five days after the date of the pres ident's proclamation complete regula tions will be in the hands of all sheriff and of the officials of-cities of ovei 30,000 population. - The president Is authorized to call upon all public officers to assist In the execution of the law. The plan is, however, to rely on the people for the proper execution of the law. It is ex pected that patriotic citizens will offer their services free as registrars. Such services will be gratefully acknowledged- Volunteers for, this service should communicate immediately witi the proper , official. -.. - . . BANKS ASKED TO CO-OPERATE Secretary Authorizes Financial lnsti , tutions to Receive Subscriptions for the Bond Offerings.' Washington. Secretary McAdoo tele graphed the entire list of 27,513 nation al and state banks and trust companies in the United States, authorizing them to receive subscriptions for the $2,000, 000,000 bond offering, enlisting their co-operation, and requesting them to telegraph - a rough estimate of the amount of bonds each would take for itself and Its patrons. "Tou can render an invaluable serv ice to your country," Mr. McAdoo told the banks, "by receiving subscriptions and co-operating with the federal re serve bank in your district." Loan Subscriptions Pour In. To all clearing house associations In the country Mr. McAdoo sent a tele gram in which he said: "The amount of the initial loan has been determined by the needs of the government and not arbitrarily. The enthusiastic and patriotic co-operation of the banks and bankers of the coun try will guarantee the success of the undertaking." . The result of the first announcement of the loan has been a deluge of sub scriptions, aggregating many millions. Most of these came in by wire to the treasury. Virtually every large city and every state In the Union was rep resented. Lend $100,000,000 to Italy. , Negotiations continued today with representatives of the nations to which the United States is extending credit. Count di Cellere, the Italian ambassador, received the full amount of the first $100,000,000 loan made by this government to Italy. , Subscriptions to the second offering of treasury .certificates were received during the day by the federal reserve banks. Indications are that the secre tary will call for the proceeds within a week, possibly a few days. - The $100,000,000 loan to France will be turned over to Ambassador Jusser and, in whole or part, within a day or so. - - MAY CENTER IN WASHINGTON Probability That One Committee Will Purchase All Supplies Needed by the Allied Countries. Washington. Creation of a central purchasing committee in Washington for all supplies bought In the United States for the allied governments was forecast here by Sir Hard man Lever, financial expert of the British war mission. The committee will supplant J. P. Morgan & Co. ' Discussing the world financial situa tion, the British expert expressed the opinion that Germany will be practical ly bankrupt in the credit markets after the war. "Our enemies," he said, "for all their boasted efficiency, have never had the courage to face their financial prob lems, with the result that when the war Is over they will be hard put to it." ' The Teutonic governments having pyramided one Internal loan upon an other, he explained, their interest charges would be so great that he be lieved they would either have to repu diate a large part of their debt or face inability to buy the enormous quanti ties of material they would need for reconstruction. The allies, he added, had paid their way In the war "by the straightfor ward and natural means, by pouring out their gold, by selling enormous masses of American securities, by rais ing loans." As a result, he predicted that the end of the war would find the allies in good shape financially, despite their enormous permanent debts. Agree on Paying Men In Training. Washington. Conferees on the army bill agreed on a provision to pay $100 a month to men in training camps seeking to qualify as members of the officers' reserve, corps. Although the full allotted quota of 40,000 men probably will be enrolled In the officers training camps when they open May 15, there still Is "plenty of loom toy men of the right qualities," the war department announced. In a statement saying that ench of the sixteen camps seemed assured of its full allotment of 2.500 applicants for commissions, the department ap pealed for further recruits among men of proved ability.
